Paramount Pictures can’t seem to get the release date for The Super Mario Bros. Movie nailed down. Last week, the production company announced that the upcoming animated film would be delayed in certain regions to align its date with the US launch. This meant that territories including South Africa where the film was originally meant to release in March, would now have to wait until 7 April. This date has now changed again.
Paramount Pictures has now tweaked the release date for The Super Mario Bros. Movie across multiple regions to 5 April. This has changed from the original 7 April launch in the United States. The company announced that this new 5 April release date has been changed across over 60 markets. However, they haven’t given us a specific list of exactly where.

By the look of things, South Africans will also be able to head to the cinema on 5 April to watch The Super Mario Bros. Movie instead of waiting until that Friday, the 7th. The date change has reportedly been implemented to align the film’s launch worldwide. However, Japan is set to get the film only much later on 28 April.
Wahoo! The #SuperMarioMovie is moving from April 7 to April 5 in the US and in more than 60 markets around the world. The movie hits theaters in additional markets in April and May, with Japan opening April 28. pic.twitter.com/CjlikfC3cu
