Good morning, folks, and happy MAR10 Day! And in order to get your celebration for the beloved plumber and his amazing adventures off to a grand start, Illumination has received the “final” trailer for its upcoming release The Super Mario Bros. Movie, which launches in a little under a month from now.

The trailer, (which honestly perhaps shows a little too much for my liking), sees Mario’s brother Luigi imprisoned within Bowser’s Castle (complete with a great remix of the area’s classic theme). Mario teams up with notable heroes such as Princess Peach and Toad in order to rescue Luigi, defeat the mighty monarch’s army, and restore peace to the Mushroom Kingdom. The trailer ends with a battle sequence on the Rainbow Road, with Mario bustin’ out his finest karting abilities.

Look, I get it. Illumination only has one form of comedy — the collar-tugging, record-scratching, “oh no he did’n” deal. Yeah, it’s trite, overdone, and cynical. But, despite all that, I can’t help but think that this film looks pretty marvelous. From a visual perspective, it’s a delight, with authentic sounds and music. I also think some of the jokes over the past few trailers have been pretty funny, and some of the casting, (like Jack Black’s Bowser), is paying off. Of course, whether this fun and energy can be maintained over 92 minutes remains to be seen, but from what we’ve seen so far, I’m feeling very positive.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie launches in North American and European theaters on April 5. Don’t forget to check out this ace line of posters released to promote the movie. Oh, and Happy MAR1O Day!
