I honestly don’t care how long a movie is. As long as I’m enjoying a film, I’ll gladly sit there for 3+ hours. That said, I can certainly recognize that there’s something to be said for shorter films. If you happen to be a fan of brisk cinematic experiences, the upcoming Mario animated movie should be right up your alley.

The Cinepolis theater chain may have accidentally leaked the Super Mario Bros.: The Movie’s run time, thanks to a listing on their website. If you look up the film in their database, you’ll get a listing that clearly shows the movie as being just 85 minutes long. It’s not often we see a film clock in at under an hour and a half nowadays!

Just to be clear, this is one theater chain that shows this listing. Nintendo and Illumination haven’t made a peep about the film’s length, so don’t consider this official by any means. Hopefully we’ll get more specifics in the near future.

Hmmm. It’s rare That cinepolis gets those listing wrong.
However, right now , they list Avatar: The Way of Water as being 0 minutes long! So i hope its a mistake and the Mario film is actually longer.

Would be somewhat disappointing, but I would prefer a tightly made 85 minute film to a 2 hour one packed with unnecessary filler. Having finally watched Sonic 2 recently, I can say it would have benefited from cutting out a good 10-20 minutes at least (e.g. most of the stuff in Hawaii).

I can believe a kids movie is that short. No separating/converging storylines. Simple and to the point. Executed well? We'll see.

That's rather short, even for an animated feature. Oh well, hope it is a good 85 min!

The usual runtime for an animated movie is 90 minutes, and 85 isn't very far off from that. It's still plenty of time for a good movie. Dumbo was only 64 minutes long.
