Mario Bros. X They Live!

Posted by Grey Saturday, September 17, 2011

"I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass...and I'm all out of bubblegum." Imagine the immortal words of Rowdy Roddy Piper in "They Live" spoken by Nintendo's mascot, Mario himself? Koopa Troopas beware.

While renowned horror film-maker John Carpenter's recent films have been mostly mediocre, his legendary status in cult films remained largely unmoved on the strength of his early films like 1976's Assault on Precinct 13, 1978's Escape from New York, 1980's Escape from New York, and 1984's Big Trouble in Little China, among numerous others.

Here, graphic designer Fro pays tribute to yet another John Carpenter's classic cult film, They Live, with a stylish new poster of the film. In addition, Fro also came up with a a cool mash-up of the cult film with Nintendo's Mario. Bros, just because "everybody knows that the thing Mario was missing was shotguns and an allegory for consumerism."

Hit the jump to check out these posters, along with Fro's very own description.
