2016 Movie Trailer Mash-Up

We’re over a week into the final month of 2016, and that means it’s time to start looking back at the year in cinema. While it might seem like a bummer of a year for a multitude of reasons, especially all those great talents we lost in entertainment this year, it’s important to remember that there were some great movies that hit the big screen this year, and that’s exactly what the first retrospective video for the films of 2016 does.

Moving Pictures 2016 assembles footage from dozens of films from the past year and puts them into a big montage. From the upcoming musical romance La La Land to the blockbuster battle of Batman v Superman to the indie comedy of Hunt for the Wilderpeople to the breathtaking sci-fi of Arrival to the underdog story of Eddie the Eagle, it’s been quite a year.

Mission Impossible The Mummy Trailer Mash-Up

Earlier this week, the teaser trailer for Universal’s latest attempt to remake The Mummy hit the web. Tom Cruise stars in next summer’s blockbuster that puts a female Mummy at the center of the horror action adventure reboot, and his presence combined with the overall style of the movie gave many the feeling that this was just another Mission: Impossible movie. Well, what if it was?

A new trailer mash-up does some easy editing and turns The Mummy trailer into another Mission: Impossible sequel. All you need is some Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and some conveniently placed voiceover, and we’ve got quite the unique Mission: Impossible movie.

The Witch Directed By Wes Anderson

The Witch was one of the most unnerving and masterful horror films of the year. Some complained that they didn’t find it scary, but the terror at the center of this movie felt more horrifying than any of the jump scares that countless other horror movies brought to the table this year. But what if the movie was directed by Wes Anderson?

Funnily enough, the visuals of Robert Eggers film which brings terror into the lives of a 1630s New England family work perfectly in a trailer edited in the style of one of Wes Anderson‘s comedies. Combine that with some cooky music and clever editing, and The Witch becomes a different movie entirely.

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.
