Beauty and the Beast Trailer Comparison

This week brought the first trailer for the live-action adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and fans of the original animated movie from 1991 couldn’t wait to see how it turned out. In fact, so many of them watched the trailer in the first 24 hours that it ended up breaking a world record. But we’ll get to that after the jump.

In addition, one of the fans who can’t wait to see the new Beauty and the Beast decided to take the trailer and line it up with footage from the original animated movie. After you watch it, you’ll see just how perfectly the live-action movie emulates the modern classic.

Westworld Back to the Future Trailer Mash-Up

Are you caught up on Westworld? You don’t need to be in order to enjoy the following trailer mash-up, but it’s just a good question to ask when we’re dealing with one of the best shows on television right now.

Anyway, comedy writer Todd Spence has taken the time to play with one of the trailers for HBO’s hit series adaptation of the 1970s sci-fi film from Michael Crichton (which may or may not be directly tied to each other) by adding footage from Back to the Future Part III. The result is both funny, and it makes me wish there was a storyline in the Westworld theme park where the third installment of the time travel trilogy actually played out for guests to partake in.

T2 Trainspotting 2 Trailer Comparison

Last week, the first teaser trailer for T2: Trainspotting arrived, giving a glimpse into the sequel that director Danny Boyle has been talking about for years. We finally get to see what Renton (Ewan McGregor), Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) are up to all these years later.

It remains to be seen if Danny Boyle can capture the same magic that made his first film such a beloved piece of cinema. But if you’re a fan of the original Trainspoitting, you can probably take solace in how Boyle has emulated plenty of visuals from the first movie, and that’s just in the trailer alone. Below, see a Trainspotting 2 trailer comparison to shots from the first movie. Read More »

Stranger Things Peanuts mashup: A Stranger Things Christmas

So much of Stranger Things‘ irresistible pull stems from its uncanny ability to push all your nostalgia buttons. It feels like classic Steven Spielberg and vintage Stephen King, referencing pop culture touchstones and reminding Gen Xers and older Millennials of a time when middle school kids were allowed to roam freely. But what if Stranger Things went even further? What if it doubled down on its nostalgic appeal by transforming itself into another childhood favorite, A Charlie Brown Christmas?

A Stranger Things Christmas imagines Will Byers struck by a downright Charlie Brown-esque sense of ennui right around the holiday, and going around getting advice from his old D&D buddies. And yes, they get a good Barb-related jab in there. Watch the Stranger Things Peanuts mashup below (but be warned there are major spoilers if you haven’t finished Stranger Things season one).  Read More »

Luke Cage Family Matters

It’s been over a week since Marvel’s latest series hit Netflix in the form of Luke Cage. Originally Iron Fist was supposed to be the next superhero in the series line-up leading to The Defenders, but after Mike Colter proved to be popular with audiences after his introduction in Jessica Jones, the folks at Marvel decided to shift their plans and give the Hero for Hire his due diligence.

Reviews have been mostly positive on the show, though it’s not perfect. Of course, none of the Marvel shows are, though they do appear to be hitting their mark for the most part. But what if Luke Cage was something different entirely? No, we don’t mean what Quentin Tarantino wanted to do with the characters in a movie he considered making in the 90s. But what if Luke Cage took inspiration from another popular show from that decade. What if Luke Cage was more like Family Matters? Read More »

Supergirl with John Williams Score

Not too long ago, we saw the first clip from the second season of Supergirl, coming to The CW for the first time in exactly one week. The new footage introduced us to Tyler Hoechlin as Kara Zor-El’s Kryptonian cousin Kal-El, better known on Earth as Superman. The actor made a decent enough impression as both Clark Kent and The Man of Steel as he met up with Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) in the sky to stop an aircraft from crashing to Earth. But now one Superman fan has improved the footage from Supergirl with the use of John Williams‘ signature score from the original film franchise starring Christopher Reeve.

Rogue One A Pixar Story Trailer

This winter, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be the first standalone adventure in a galaxy far, far away. The film was recently referred to as an experiment during Disney’s fourth quarter earnings call with investors, and while that worried some fans, that’s exactly what the movie is. It’s a test to see if audiences are interested in seeing these kind of movies take place in the Star Wars universe, and that’s not a bad thing. It will allow the studio to see what works and what doesn’t.

But some just can’t wait to see how this experiment turns out, and he’s created a standalone movie of his own. However, rather than creating a movie set in the Star Wars universe, he’s crafted a Pixar movie in the style of a Star Wars adventure. Using the audio from the most recent Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer and mixing it with footage from almost every Pixar movie out there, he’s created a trailer for Rogue One: A Pixar Story, and it’s outstanding.

Batman v Superman Retro Trailer

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may be old news, but fans are still having fun playing with the iconic face-off between the two biggest superheroes in the DC Comics universe. Since some believe Zack Snyder didn’t give us exactly the versions of Batman and Superman that fans have loved for decades, maybe a version of the movie starring a couple of the earlier big screen incarnations of The Dark Knight and The Big Blue Boy Scout may be more acceptable.

A new Batman v Superman retro trailer imagines what it might have been like if Michael Keaton‘s Batman and Christopher Reeve‘s Superman went head-to-head. It’s a fun little edit that makes me wish that these two versions of the heroes would have had some kind of crossover a couple decades ago. Watch it below! Read More »

Rogue Binks

For many fans, the appeal of Rogue One is that it looks more somber than your typical Star Wars adventure. Gone are the idealistic young heroes and noble Jedi; here are a bunch of veterans and troublemakers who’ve seen some shit. The tone feels more akin to a gritty war drama than a fanciful space opera, and even the famously uncoordinated Stormtroopers look like a real threat this time out.

But while Rogue One looks intense, it doesn’t exactly strike terror into the hearts of fans. No, if Rogue One really wanted to send a chill down our spines, it’d call in the franchise’s most notorious hero. Rogue Binks unveils a version of Rogue One starring everyone’s favorite Gungan general, with special appearances by Chewbacca Mom, Holiday Special Leia, Ewok warriors, and George Lucas. Now that is some truly harrowing stuff. Watch the Rogue Binks trailer below.  Read More »

Obi-Wan Kenobi Spin-Off

Since the fall of 2014, there have been rumblings of Obi-Wan Kenobi getting his own standalone spin-off. In fact, those rumors even expanded to mention that a trilogy focusing on one of the last remaining Jedi was in the works at Lucasfilm with Ewan McGregor reprising his role from the prequel trilogy. We’ve yet to get any confirmation on this development, but now a fanmade trailer for Kenobi: A Star Wars Story makes the strong case for how interesting this kind of spin-off could be.
