What’s new on Netflix: Rated 4 out of 5, it’s the biggest hit of 2023 and it deserves to be

It is the best opening of all time for an animated film at the global box office and the biggest success at the French box office of 2023. And yet, it can fail because video game adaptations are tricky to implement. There are many examples of failure in film adaptations of video game works.

However, in recent years we have seen successes in this field, such as The Last of Us, Arcane or Fallout. And this latest box office success falls into that category, completely surpassing the previous live-action adaptation that came out in 1983.

One of the best video game adaptations available on Netflix

And this movie is none other than an adaptation of the best-selling video game series of all time: Super Mario. In 2023, Super Mario Bros. was released. The film is an American-Japanese animated film directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic.

And this adaptation was a huge hit as it is the highest grossing film of 2023, grossing $1.3 billion. The success was such that a sequel is in development and is scheduled for release in 2026. In the meantime, you can (re)discover Super Mario Bros. The film for the first time on a streaming platform, namely Netflix.

Super Mario Bros. by members of the AlloCiné community. The film is a great success both in its animation and its iconic characters, which are adapted with fidelity and modernity, as well as in its hilarious plot, the synopsis of which is here:

While trying to repair an underground pipe, Mario and his brother Luigi, both plumbers, find themselves plunged into a magical new world through a mysterious pipe. But when the two brothers are separated, Mario embarks on an exciting adventure to find Luigi.

In his quest, he can rely on the Mushroom Toad, a resident of the Mushroom Kingdom, and sage advice on battle techniques from Princess Peach, a determined warrior at the head of the kingdom. This is how Mario manages to mobilize his forces to complete the mission.

Perfect for video game fans or family movie nights, Super Mario Bros. The film is an almost perfect entertainer full of references, as funny as it is moving, with bright colors, excellent dubbing and already iconic sequences (like the song about peaches!).

Super Mario Bros. The Movie is available on Netflix.
