Super Mario Bros 2 gets Universal green light

Published

on

Nintendo, in collaboration with Universal Pictures, has announced plans for a new animated film based on the beloved Super Mario game franchise.

Following the massive success of last year’s “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” the two entertainment giants are set to co-finance and distribute the upcoming film, scheduled for release in April 2026 in the United States and various global markets.

Santa Monica-based animation studio Illumination, known for its work on hits like “Despicable Me” and “Minions,” will be producing the new movie.

The announcement comes as a delight to fans worldwide who have long awaited another cinematic adventure featuring the iconic characters from the Mushroom Kingdom.

Nintendo’s decision to venture further into film adaptations reflects its strategy to diversify revenue streams and expand the reach of its cherished characters beyond the realm of video games.

Increased sales

“The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” released in April of the previous year, not only delighted audiences but also contributed to increased sales of Super Mario software titles, showcasing the potential synergy between film and gaming industries.

This isn’t the only venture into film for Nintendo. In November, the company revealed plans to develop a live-action adaptation of the popular action-adventure series “The Legend of Zelda,” further solidifying its commitment to bringing beloved franchises to the big screen.

As anticipation builds for the new Super Mario Bros. movie, fans can expect another exciting journey into the colorful and whimsical world of Mario, Luigi, and their friends.

With Universal Pictures’ global distribution network and Illumination’s track record of success, the stage is set for another blockbuster hit that will capture the hearts of audiences of all ages.

AI tracks enigmatic cancers back to origins in new study

Published

on

In a groundbreaking development, scientists have unveiled a remarkable AI tool that promises to revolutionise the detection and treatment of metastatic cancers.

These elusive cancers often evade detection until they have already spread to distant organs, posing a significant challenge for diagnosis and treatment. Published in Nature Medicine, the study showcases an AI model developed by researchers at Tianjin Medical University (TMU) in China, led by Tian Fei and Li Xiangchun. Trained on a vast dataset of 30,000 images from 21,000 individuals, the AI model demonstrated an unprecedented accuracy rate of 83% in identifying the origins of metastatic cancer cells found in fluid samples from abdominal or lung regions.

Impressively, the model’s top three predictions included the tumour’s source with a staggering 99% accuracy.

This breakthrough not only surpasses the capabilities of human pathologists but also offers a beacon of hope for the 300,000 people annually diagnosed with cancer at TMU-affiliated hospitals, where approximately 4,000 cases rely on such image-based diagnoses.

By significantly reducing the need for invasive tests and providing timely and accurate predictions, this AI tool could potentially extend the lives of late-stage cancer patients. Faisal Mahmood of Harvard Medical School praises the study’s findings, highlighting the potential of AI as an indispensable assistive tool in healthcare.

Looking ahead, the integration of AI with tissue samples and genomic data holds the promise of further enhancing outcomes for individuals battling metastatic cancers of unknown origins, ushering in a new era of precision medicine and personalised care.
