Yesterday brought some brief new footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens yesterday, featuring the first footage of John Boyega wielding a lightsaber (specifically the lightsaber that was Anakin Skywalker’s, passed down to Luke Skywalker by Obi-Wan Kenobi).
But today we have a fanmade trailer for one of the movies from the original trilogy, The Empire Strikes Back. YouTube user Dan Flesher has cut a modern trailer for Episode V, using the same music, cuts and cues from the second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s an extremely well-done edit that uses footage from the movie we all know in a cool teasing way. It makes me wish I could watch Star Wars all over again without knowing anything about it.

Just recently, a video essay turned the beloved 80s movie The Karate Kid on its be proposing that protagonist Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) was actually the villain in the movie, not Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka). There were some pretty convincing and compelling arguments to be made that LaRusso isn’t exactly a positive figure for a hero. But sometimes that’s how it works in storytelling.
Now a new fanmade trailer has taken a more modern hero and made him look like the villain. It’s no secret that Harry Potter is the hero of the book and film series that bares his name in each and every title, but a new fanmade trailer uses some clever edits to show Harry Potter as a villain instead.

It’s no secret that the hit Adult Swim series Rick and Morty takes plenty of inspiration from Back to the Future protagonists Doc and Marty. In fact, the series began as an animated parody from co-creator Justin Roiland called The Adventures of Doc and Mharti, which co-creator Dan Harmon has referred to as “a bastardization, a pornographic vandalization” of the classic time traveling trilogy.
Well, now everything has come full circle as a fan of both the aforementioned animated series and film franchise has created a Back to the Future Rick and Morty mash-up that probably actually exists as a feature length film in some parallel universe. Read More »
In just over a couple weeks, fans of Mad Max: Fury Road will be able to pick up their own copy of George Miller‘s magnificent action bonanza on Blu-Ray and DVD on September 1st (or you can get it right now on digital download). But for those who aren’t so patient, maybe a new trailer mash-up with the post-apocalyptic sequel will hold you over.
YouTube user Egor Zhgun decided to take characters from the hit show Adventure Time and create a short little animated trailer as if they were the characters in Mad Max: Fury Road. It’s a little bit trippy, not unlike the real movie, or for that matter the TV show, with Finn as Max and Jake as one of the vehicles on the chase, but it’s a fun little creation. Read More »
Even though X-Men from the year 2000 may have been the first Marvel Comics film that truly launched the comic book movie boom that hasn’t stopped in 15 years (and is showing no signs of slowing down), the very first theatrical movie based on a Marvel comic was Howard the Duck in 1986. Sadly, and hilariously, it was an absolute disaster.
But ever since Marvel Studios revived the character for a credits scene appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy, there’s been a resurgence of interest in the wise-cracking, anthropomorphic duck named Howard. And that’s mainly because fans think that Marvel Studios can do the character justice on the big screen now, not unlike Rocket Raccoon.
And now a new trailer remix gives Howard the Duck the Marvel cinematic universe treatment by blending footage from the original movie with Marvel Studios movies, imagining a big screen reboot in today’s world. Watch the Howard the Duck trailer remix now! Read More »

Just recently we featured a quick little edit of some footage from the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer where Bruce Wayne witnesses the final battle from the end of Man of Steel. But now the DC Comics superhero match-up gets a whole new face…literally.
YouTube user and TV writer David Elmaleh has created a mash-up of Batman v. Superman and The Social Network, which features the DC Comics cinematic universe’s new Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) in the lead role. The battle for Facebook between Mark Zuckerberg and The Winklevoss twins has never been so epic, and the David Fincher movie looks like a true battle for the ages.

By now you’ve probably seen the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer that premiered at Comic-Con and went online shortly thereafter. Or maybe you’ve seen the slightly shorter theatrical edit of the trailer that was released last week. Either way, you’ve seen some of the destruction of Metropolis repeated as we now see part of the final battle from Man of Steel from the perspective of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, watching as one of his buildings is destroyed.
Now a fan has edited together parts of the scene from Man of Steel with footage from the Batman v. Superman trailer to help paint a slightly more complete image of what we’ll see unfold on the screen next spring. You might have seen a GIF floating around with a side-by-side comparison of the laser vision tearing apart the building, but this is a little different.
