Live action Mario trailer from SXSW


As you may (or may not) know, I'm totally a sucker for fan-made trailers on YouTube. Half the time I think the fans have a better idea of what an audience wants than the studios do, and that sort of creative freedom allows for some really awesome ideas.

Recently at this year's SXSW, a fan-made live-action Mario trailer was shown. Now don't get your hopes up, because I'm sure it'll never actually be made, but wow, this trailer looks so awesome. For those of you who haven't seen it yet, this trailer takes an indie spin on our beloved Mario, much in the same way the fan-made God of War trailer did.

I really do wish something like this would get turned into a film. It's so perfect! It satisfies my nerdy side and my hipster inclinations. A wonderful mesh that even Wes Anderson would probably be proud of. 

...At least it's not that atrocity of a Mario movie that came out in the 90s. I try to pretend that film doesn't exist.

Hit the jump to see the trailer and tell me what you think!
