It might not be the best video game to feature film adaptation of all time (far from it), but that hasn't stopped independent UK film distributor Second Sight from announcing the release of 1993's 'Super Mario Bros.' feature film on Blu-ray in the UK.




Coming on November 3rd, 'Super Mario Bros' comes remastered in full 1080p, with 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio, including a 60 minute documentary 'This Ain't no Video Game' which will for the first time shed light on the troubled production, including newly shot interviews with Co-directors Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel, Producer Roland Joffe, Actors John Leguizamo and Richard Edson, Writer Parker Bennett, Production Designer David Snyder, Art Director Walter Martishius, FX Artists Paul Elliot, Vincent Guastini and Rob Burman, Visual FX Designer Chris Woods, Editor Mark Goldblatt and Creature Designer Patrick Tatopoulos. Bob Hoskins and producer Jake Eberts will contribute via archival footage.




Other features included on the lavish Blu-ray set include a vintage 'making of' featurette, the original Electronic Press Kit and Theatrical Trailer, along with original storyboards and a stills gallery.


Unfortunately, due to rights issues, Second Sight has confirmed that the disc will be region coded B for the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. The Blu-ray is now available to pre-order from Amazon UK.
