It seems Twitter is just as wild as the Rainbow Road after a copy of the new Super Mario Brothers movie was repeatedly uploaded to the social media platform.

While Nintendo are yet to release a statement about the incident, the moustached plumber continues to break records at the box office with over $1 billion in ticket sales.

The family-friendly film isn’t the only movie that has been illegally posted recently, with others being leaked as well in recent days.

Twitter user @OMGitssAshley allegedly posted the 92-minute video, in two parts, with over nine million people watching the Illumination animation before the tweet was deleted.

But this wasn’t the only person to leak the moustached plumber’s movie.

Having already shared the post from @OMGitssAshley, Twitter user @vidsthatgohard later leaked the film – quickly gaining the attention of film lovers everywhere.

According to We Got This Covered, the same user had already shared 2022’s Avatar: The Way of Water - but it’s unclear how many people watched the extra-terrestrial film.

Despite breaking copyright law and Twitter’s code of conduct, user @vidsthatgohard kept their blue ticket for several hours before the account was eventually suspended (Mamma Mia!).Thankfully, the leak hasn't affected the box office sales with The Super Mario Brothers Movie becoming one of just 50 movies to break the coveted $1 billion mark.

However, filmmakers are now increasingly concerned about their content being uploaded to Twitter - which is now possible due to a new feature on the platform.

The monthly subscription service Twitter Blue allows users to range of features such as editing tweets, the iconic checkmark and uploading longer HD videos.

After Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, the site’s compliance teams have reduced - with many staff members being fired from the firm last year.

It’s left the site more at risk of copyright infringement as the remaining staff try to battle against an overwhelming amount of content being uploaded to Twitter.

Musk also dissolved Twitter’s Trust and Safety Council, meaning that it’s also harder for the platform to enforce its code of conduct.

Though Nintendo are yet to release a statement about the leak, it’s thought that the gaming giant may take legal action over the copyright infringement.

UNILAD has contacted Nintendo for comment.
