Super Mario Bros. Movie Out Digitally Today But South Africans Need to Wait

Unlike Avatar: The Way of The Water which stayed at the box office for as long as humanly possible to make as much money as humanly possible, Nintendo and Illumination have decided that people at home can now enjoy The Super Mario Bros. Movie digitally.

Starting today, residents in certain countries such as the United States can purchase and rent The Super Mario Bros. Movie across their preferred platform. This includes Google TV, Apple iTunes and Amazon. The film will be available to view starting at 18:00 CAT.

Sadly, South Africans wanting to enjoy the film need to wait almost an entire month to watch it legally. The digital version of The Super Mario Bros. Movie isn’t set to launch in the country until 5 June for some reason. That’s quite a gap between the “out today” launch and our release (and they ask why piracy is a huge issue here).

The film will launch on 5 June in South Africa across iTunes, Google TV and other rental services. It costs R169 (4K version) to own on Apple TV and other platforms. Of course, you can always spoof your location and use a VPN to access the film where it is available already. If you have a US account across Google Movies and Apple TV, this shouldn’t be an issue.

The film comes with some pretty visual enhancements too. You’ll be able to enjoy it in 4K UHD with Dolby Vision and Atmos support. That’s of course, if you own the hardware to play these formats too.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie launched in April and the digital release taking place in May (or June here) is quite early. However, the film did manage to gross over $1 billion worldwide within its time at the cinemas. The film’s box office takings were likely dropping and Universal Pictures decided to sell the film to further its success.

The movie is also set to get a physical launch in June. However, the exact date has yet to be announced.
