Universal Pictures and Illumination have announced the The Super Mario Bros. Movie release date has been moved up by two days to Wednesday, April 5, instead of the Friday, April 7 release.

The new release date aligns the release of The Super Mario Bros. Movie with the rest of the world, as recently saw the film confirmed for an April 5 big release in China, and the film will also open in Australia, France Germany, Italy, Brazil Mexico, and the U.K. and Ireland.

“Wahoo! The The Super Mario Bros. Movie is moving from April 7 to April 5 in the US and in more than 60 markets around the world,” the flick’s official Twitter account tweeted. “The movie hits theaters in additional markets in April and May, with Japan opening April 28.”

The reason for the April 28 release date in Japan is to time it with Japan’s Golden Week Holidays where many workers get a week off.
