Mario As an Indie Film

"A turtle walked right up to me and goes, 'How many people are you willing to step on to get what you want?'"

Do you remember the absolutely terrible Super Mario Brothers film from 1993? Yea, we try to forget it on a daily basis too, but somehow it always finds a way to slither back into our minds. If there were a blueprint for how to do a Mario Bros. movie right, Hollywood must have took it, crumbled it up, shit on it, then lit it ablaze. Oh, then they casted Dennis Hopper. 

Thankfully, this is not that type of Mario movie. The folks over at Pixels Per Second have re-imagined Mario Bros. as an epic indie movie. And thus, hilarity ensues. The below trailer for the faux project is full of winks and nods to the classic Nintendo franchise, even throwing in a Mario Kart reference for good measure. Basically, this trailer is full of win.
