Recently, the Super Mario Bros. movie was leaked illegally and millions of Twitter users were able to watch it. The Nintendo game franchise has hit the billion-dollar mark at the box office, making it one of the biggest movies of 2023. The movie, which is an adventure fantasy movie, was released on April 5th but just weeks later, an entire full-length version of the film was uploaded to the social media platform.
Super Mario Bros. Movie Leaked on Twitter
According to a report from The Verge, the Super Mario Bros. movie was posted in two parts – one-hour long and the other remaining half an hour. This is not the first time uploaded videos on Twitter have been a concern for the movie industry. The movie industry has always experienced issues with copyright infringement, and with Twitter’s ongoing saga of video uploads, the situation seems to be getting worse.
This leak puts the movie studio in question, as the leaked movie could be seen as lost revenue. Potentially millions of dollars could be lost on box office numbers due to the illegal upload of the movie. Will the studio be able to track down these users who have seen the leaked version? And will there be any potential lawsuits coming from the studio? These are two big questions to ask regarding the leak.
