Super Mario Bros.: The movie’s first trailer caused controversy
The first trailer for the movie Mario is causing a lot of controversy on the internet right now: Many fans love Jack Black and his looks - but Chris Pratt as Mario makes them uncomfortable.
The first trailer for the Super Mario movie is here! And that makes a good conversation starter. Not only is the number of views on YouTube skyrocketing, the video released just yesterday is hotly debated on social networks.
But what’s behind the controversy? That’s because not only is the movie’s appearance praised, Jack Black is also the original speaker. At the same time, Chris Pratt is being punished for his performance as Mario. His decision to star in the actor from movies like Guardians of the Galaxy has caused a lot of criticism before.
But first, let’s get an idea of Super Mario Bros. You can find the English-language trailer of Nintendo’s animated movie, which will start in theaters on March 23, 2023, here:
Why is the Mario trailer being discussed so much these days?
This has been criticized: The focus of discussion is primarily actor Chris Pratt, who gave his voice to the main character of Super Mario Bros. His decision to cast a well-known Hollywood actor over a seasoned voice actor for the role has drawn criticism before—particularly Charles Martinet, the voice behind Mario’s plays.
Now, for the first time, the (English) trailer has revealed how Chris Pratt will ultimately sound as Mario in the movie. And that causes a lot of malice and ridicule, especially given Pratt’s previously personally made statements. That’s why Pratt promised to work hard on the Mario voice for the movie and come up with something special for him.
Ultimately, Chris Pratt sounds like Mario… Chris Pratt with a slight Italian accent. Many of the reactions on Twitter and Co. say a lot:
