Chris Pratt And Charlie Day Plan Out The Nintendo Cinematic Universe

There’s been a lot going on about how much the cast is playing heading into the Super Mario Bros. movie. TRUE play video games. Considering Chris Pratt can fight dinosaurs and aliens onscreen and has little (perhaps no experience) with either, it might be a bit too much. Mario is one of the most famous video game characters of all time, and everyone on the planet has probably heard of him, even those who aren’t that into games. Still, when chatting about Easter eggs with Pratt and his on-screen brother Charlie Day, it was lovely to see them pop out of their chairs and yell “Kid Icarus!” When I mention my own favorite references in the film.

Games sometimes confuse lack of encyclopedic knowledge with lack of passion. If people can’t remember the exact date that every character appeared, they can pull off dozens of combos with button commands, and they know all the behind-the-scenes details, they’re not “real” fans. But you don’t need to know that Viggo Mortensen broke his toe for loving The Lord of the Rings. For most people, being passionate about video games means enjoying them, reliving those memories fondly, or continuing to experience everything they have to offer today. .

This passion is palpable when the two calm down from the excitement of Kid Icarus and talk about their favorite moments from the movie.

Update April 14, 2023: This article has been updated with footage from a video interview with Chris Pratt and Charlie Day.

But Pratt seems to be taking notes. “I want to go back and watch it again just to have it all,” he says. “There’s Punch Out!! Easter Eggs, and something about Anchor Warriors. There may be Zelda, but will there be a Zelda movie? It’s going to be the Nintendo Cinematic Universe. Here’s the content We’re talking about his 10, 20, 80 years.”

As the pair plan the composition of the Super Smash Bros. universe, it looks like an IP movie would be more than just a sequel, but a way to set up an entire universe. There are many world-famous characters. A few years from now, we may see Pratt’s Mario teaming up with a gang of pixelated protagonists to stop Edelgart von his Hresvelg world domination. Zelda may seem like the next natural stop, but Day and Pratt think another candidate might be lurking.

“I love Zelda as much as Mario,” added Day, adding that if he wanted to keep playing Green Man, I think he’d make a great Tingle. Samus spends a lot of time alone throughout the game, so it’s hard to see the role of Dey jump to you right away, but the various poisonous plants Samus fights and the I’m sure we can bring comedy to Alien.

“Mother Brain [was very creepy]’ agrees Pratt. “And at the end of Metroid, the helmet comes off – female all the way.” I’m not sure if Samus should be juggled.

The cast of Super Mario Bros. movies should be judged primarily by their performances, not their love of video games where strangers on the Internet comb through every word and rate for signs of error. But if ratings were determined by the cast’s love for Kid Icarus, Chris Pratt and Charlie Day ensure the film is in safe hands.

The Super Mario Bros. movie hits theaters on April 5th.
