Both trailers released for the upcoming Super Mario Bros. movie have used the same song. It’s a epic reworking of a classic Mario tune, and it’s meant to show the scope and scale of this animated project. We’ve heard bits and pieces of the song with sound effects and dialog over it, but wouldn’t you like to hear the full song? Well now you can, and through an official release.
The Super Mario Bros. movie theme was created by Black Hydra, a composing team who specialize in motion picture advertising music and film/TV music. The team, founded by Ben Hayden and James Murray, create music for theatrical trailers, as well as bespoke music for television promos, commercials and video game advertising campaigns. Black Hydra has been involved with projects like Black Adam, Spider-Man: No Way Home, The Batman, Top Gun: Maverick and many others.
Black Hydra has released the official Super Mario Bros. movie theme to their YouTube channel, and you can enjoy the entire piece above. It’s very much a movie trailer-esque song, but it may pop up in the film itself at some point. We’ll have to wait until next year to find out!
