Incidentally: Bob Hoskins didn’t know the movie Super Mario Bros. based on a game
The Super Mario Bros. Film is a gift that never stops giving. While the 1993 film was critically acclaimed, it still entered the hearts of many thanks to its fame and interviews in the years that followed. The late Bob Hoskinswho plays Mario, has attracted particular attention since he is said to hate working on the film.
But, in an interview earlier in the day, that resurfaced thanks to @ATRightMoviesHoskins doesn’t even seem to know that the movie is based on a video game! You know, one of the most successful video games All Time?
It’s really not surprising, but his answer below is quite hilarious. Hoskins revealed in the interview that he was told that Super Mario Bros. was a video game played by his son, who then showed him a little red plumber jumping up and down. Your thoughts? “I used to play King Lear”.
We were giggling about this; Hoskins’ response was priceless. But his thoughts on the film contrasted with his co-star John Leguizamo, as Luigi, who said that The movie broke ground back in the day.
A Twitter user also picked up the same amusing quote we did, but we can’t let this response go unnoticed, because it’s exactly the kind of joke we wanted. Acclaim.
It looks like we’ll continue to learn tidbits about the film in the years to come. The movie turns 30 next year, so maybe there’s going to be a big celebration?
One thing we will get next year is a new brand cartoon Super Mario Bros. with Chris Pratt starring as the plumber. We’ll have to see how that stacks up to this one classic.
