In a surprising turn of events, the Illumination film “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” was leaked in its entirety on Twitter over the weekend. The leak was made possible through a feature available exclusively to Twitter Blue subscribers, which allows them to upload high-quality videos of up to one hour in length. The movie was posted in two parts by a Twitter account with 1.1 million followers, and it remained online for at least seven hours before being taken down by Twitter moderators. According to Forbes, the video had already received at least 9 million views before it was removed. This leak has generated concern about Twitter’s moderation system, especially in light of recent layoffs that have affected the company’s content moderation team. Universal Pictures, the distributor of the film, has not yet commented on the leak. Despite the leak, “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” has become the first animated movie since the pandemic began to gross over $1 billion at the global box office.
