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 »
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.

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: 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 »

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 »
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.

Even though having big screen battles is all the rage lately, from Batman vs Superman to Captain America vs Iron Man, this year has seen two of the biggest blockbuster battles. Plus, we still have Godzilla vs King Kong coming in a few years. However, even though there are plenty of franchise crossovers happening, it’s pretty much a 110% guarantee that we’ll never see Star Wars vs Star Trek in movie theaters. But we can imagine what it would be like thanks to this cleverly edited new fan trailer where the two popular sci-fi franchises collide in the most epic way possible.

Movie mash-ups are a dime a dozen on the web, and sometimes even though they can be good fun, they bring together two movies that fit together pretty easily. But did you ever think that a mash-up of Christopher Nolan‘s gritty, grounded Dark Knight Trilogy and Edgar Wright‘s fantastical, energetic Scott Pilgrim vs the World would make the perfect combo?
The YouTube channel Inventor Headquarters has taken footage from all three films in The Dark Knight Trilogy and spiced them up by editing them in the style of the trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs the World, complete with little animated fighting effects and onomatopoeias. This could be the most fun thing you watch today. Read More »

You may remember last fall we featured the incredibly creative and cleverly edited mash-up called Hell’s Club. The video had the cinematic worlds of Terminator, Scarface, John Wick, Saturday Night Fever, Star Wars, The Matrix and more collide in a single, dangerous nightclub setting. Now a new mash-up from Smash TV brings together over 80 sci-fi films, from Moonwalker to Akira and more but rather than just being a mash-up of these movies, it’s also an exercise in music remixing that results in a mesmerizing, trippy feature-length music video.
But beware, because the video comes with a warning that the visuals have been “identified to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.” So watch this Megaplex mash-up at your own risk. Read More »
At one time, it was believed to be nearly impossible for Spider-Man to end up on the big screen in the same movie with the Avengers. Thankfully, Sony Pictures struck a deal with Marvel Studios to share our friendly neighborhood wallcrawler so that he was able to appear in Captain America: Civil War before getting his own new franchise.
But one Marvel property that’s unlikely to be shared with Marvel Studios in the future is the X-Men. The franchise is going strong at 20th Century Fox (even though the early buzz on X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t very good), and they’re going to ride that wave as long as they can. Thankfully, one fan decided to imagine what it would be like if we got to see an Avengers vs X-Men movie thanks to some very clever editing.
