Directed by Cole Bennett, the music video for ‘Peaches’ places Black in a peach-coloured mushroom hut as he belts out his ballad for Princess Peach, portrayed in the film by Anya Taylor-Joy.

In a statement, per Rolling Stone, the film’s co-director Aaron Horvath revealed: “Jack Black is an incredible singer and musician, so we spent a night writing the song and sent the demo to Jack. A couple days later, Jack sent us back a finished track. He had added his own twist on it and his pianist played an original music track for it. We were blown away.”

In a two-star review of The Super Mario Bros. Movie, NME‘s Nick Levine wrote: “The Super Mario Bros. Movie often looks like a video game, but it’s not as fun as playing one. Clearly, adapting the best-selling video game franchise of all-time into an equally ingenious movie is a tall order. The one previous attempt, a 1993 live-action film starring Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo, was a box office flop that has since built a bit of a cult following. This one seems destined for the opposite fate: it’s faithful enough to tempt existing fans to the cinema, but too perfunctory to be pored over.”
