You never know what cool content you’ll come across while browsing your daily social feeds. Today it was on the r/Movies Reddit where user Spettacomedy shared his latest creative project: Movie Posters with a Nintendo Makeover. The original post, which has been upvoted over 32k times since publishing this piece, instantly caught my attention because….SUPER MARIO you guys!

I reached out to Spetta to see if I could share his Nintendo Movie Posters and have gathered some of my favorites. But because this is a movie site, I added some plot details from IMDb and Wikipedia and modified them to include our favorite Nintendo characters. This was a fun little post to work on and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Oh, and head over to the Reddit post I linked above and give Spetta another upvote, as well as view the rest of his Nintendo Movie Posters. There are way more than shared here.
