Universal Pictures shared news of the release of the second trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie.
The trailer shows plumber Mario (voice of Chris Pratt) battling Donkey Kong, the ape whose game first introduced the character. Villain Bowser (Jack Black) interrogates Mario’s brother Luigi (Charlie Day), who was introduced in the game Mario Bros. Princess Peach (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Toad (Keegan-Michael Key) join Mario on his adventure, which mimics gameplay from the original Super Mario Bros. side-scroller game for Nintendo Entertainment System. A flaming flower and flying raccoon Mario are shown. Mario also races a go-kart like the spinoff game Super Mario Kart.
The animated The Super Mario Bros. Movie opens on April 7.
