The Super Mario Bros. Movie quickly became the highest-grossing video game movie of all time and is now on course to gross $1 billion at the box office. It’ll join a prestigious list of films, and all but guarantees we’ll see The Super Mario Bros. Movie 2 sometime in the future.
But if you’re not a fan of the cinema, when will The Super Mario Bros. Movie come to streaming services? It’s likely to hit Peacock sometime in August and could make its way to Netflix in the US in December. In terms of a physical release, June 6 seems the most likely if you want to pick up the film on DVD, Blu-ray or 4K HD Blu-ray.
