With help from Princess Peach, Mario prepares to square off against the all-powerful Bowser to stop his plans from conquering the world.
In 1993 a live-action movie hit theaters directed by Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel. The cast included Bob Hoskins as Mario, John Leguizamo as Luigi, and Dennis Hopper as the villainous King Koopa. Despite its all-star cast, the movie was a critical and commercial flop, grossing only $20.9 million in the US against a budget of $48 million. In addition, the movie was heavily criticized for its departure from the source material and poor execution, leading to it being widely regarded as one of the worst video game adaptations of all time.
