Pretty much the moment Chris Pratt was announced as the star of Jurassic World, we Parks and Recreation fans started to wonder Andy Dwyer would make of all this. After all, hanging out in a dino park all day is exactly the kind of thing that’d get Pawnee’s most lovable idiot to make this face:
Well, wonder no more because some genius on the Internet has created Jurassic Parks and Recreation, a mash-up combining the Jurassic World trailer with some of Andy’s most memorable moments. Watch Jurassic Parks and Recreation after the jump. Read More »

Fans can debate for hours on end whether or not Spider-man will crossover with The Avengers, X-Men with the Fantastic Four or any number of other combinations. One we know for a fact we are never going to see is Marvel and DC: Batman fighting Wolverine. Superman battling Iron Man. The Joker teaming with Loki. It’s just never going to happen. They’re two different companies operating in two different places and huge rivals
But, thanks to the magic of the Internet, fans can mash the two together and come up with something wonderful. Like this awesome little trailer by YouTube user Alex Luthor. Check out his Marvel vs DC movie trailer below. Read More »
Since the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, I’ve been saying that once Peter Jackson‘s Lord of the Rings prequel trilogy is released some fan will edit together an awesome epic three hour movie using all the footage. Well with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies gearing up for release, we are already beginning to see what this might look like.
Los Angeles-based editor Joel Walden has edited together a trailer for what he calls The Hobbit: The Complete Journey, which yes combines footage from all three films into one epic film. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump.

November 2014 really seems a bit late to be parodying the biggest pop culture hits of 2013. We’ve already seen enough Frozen mash-ups to last us a lifetime, to say nothing of Breaking Bad parodies. But hey, great art takes time, and “Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?” is worth the wait.
As the title suggests, the Breaking Bad Frozen parody reimagines “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” through a Breaking Bad lens. Anna’s wistful musical appeal to Elsa becomes a dangerous plea from Walt to Jesse. Watch “Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?” after the jump. (Warning: Major Breaking Bad spoilers ahoy.) (Another warning: If you proceed, you will have the tune stuck in your head for the next 24 hours.) Read More »
Back when Captain America: The Winter Soldier was only known as “Captain America 2,” everyone involved kept saying one thing. The film was going to influenced by political thrillers of the Seventies. The end result definitely bore that influence, as Cap uncovered the mystery of what was happening behind the scenes at S.H.I.E.L.D.
But “political thriller” was definitely not the only box you could place The Winter Soldier in. Cap fights his superhuman equal and a secret organization hellbent on world domination. Heck, it could have been an old-school Eighties action movie. And that’s exactly what YouTube user ChiefBrodyRules has created. He turned Captain America: The Winter Soldier into an ’80s B-Movie trailer. It’s really clever. Check out the Winter Soldier 80s trailer below. Read More »

2014 has brought us no fewer than three major dystopian YA adventures (Divergent, The Giver, and The Maze Runner), with one more (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1) still on the way. That adds up to about eight hours of watching fake teenagers run around uncovering conspiracies.
So why not save yourself some time and watch Saturday Night Live‘s The Group Hopper, which essentially mashes up all four of those and then some? It even includes a weird Effie Trinket / President Snow combination, played by SNL alum Bill Hader. Watch the SNL Group Hopper “trailer” after the jump.

This past weekend, it took every dollar and cent for David Fincher’s latest to beat Annabelle. A prequel to last year’s hit horror film The Conjuring, Annabelle tells the story of the evil doll seen briefly in The Conjuring. Evil dolls are not a new thing though. Just today, the creator of Chucky said he’d love his creation to appear in a showdown with Annabelle. Now, a clever video has hit the net that takes the idea of Annabelle and mashes it with a very unlikely bedfellow: Pixar’s Toy Story. Watch the funny trailer for the Toy Story Annabelle film, Woody.

We usually put mash-up trailers in our link blog round-up Page 2, but I think this one is worth a breakout because it combines the two best movies of 2014 (so far, at least in my opinion), Matt Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Richard Linklater’s Boyhood. Nelson Carvajal has edited the two movies into a trailer titled “Apehood” (which also includes footage from Rise of the Planet of the Apes). Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Both Dawn and Boyhood are in theaters now, make time to see both of these films on the big screen.

Katsuhiro Otomo‘s 1988 anime Akira is a classic. So, of course, Hollywood wants to remake it. However, the story is so sprawling and pessimistic, no one has been able to settle on a budget that would be financially feasible. Even some of the biggest stars in the world couldn’t make a live action Akira happen in the Hollywood system. Especially not with the respect for the story fans would demand.
Enter The Akira Project, a “crowd-sourced, non-profit project” that used IndieGoGo to make a full length fan trailer. Now, this is not for a movie, though the filmmakers would love to do that in the future. But it shows what passionate fans can do. Make a beautiful, faithful and respectful remake of a classic anime. Check out the live action Akira trailer below. Read More »
