Today brings Captain America: Civil War to theaters everywhere, but a slew of people already caught early screenings last night to get the ball rolling on what will be a huge weekend at the box office for Marvel Studios. In many ways, it’s a miracle that this movie exists. Not only did some fans think seeing The Avengers on the big screen was impossible, but even after they were assemble, they never thought we’d get to see the Civil War storyline played out on film.
But what if Captain America: Civil War was released in 1995 instead? A new remix reimagines the movie by using old voiceover, footage from various political action thrillers and clips from Marvel’s real movie to create a trailer that you might have seen on home video back in the 90s.

If you didn’t get enough of Star Wars: The Force Awakens when it was in theaters, the good news is we just found out the movie will officially be hitting digital download on April 1st and Blu-ray and DVD a few days later on April 5th. You can get a rundown of all the special features right here, but in the meantime, we’ve got something else to help pass the time until you can watch The Force Awakens again.
One fan decided to recut trailers for each episode of the original Star Wars trilogy in the style of the third trailer for The Force Awakens. They’ll definitely have you wanting to have your own marathon of the original trilogy before rewatching the latest installment. Check out all three of the Star Wars modern trailers after the jump.

The release of the first trailer for Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters certainly got people talking when it hit the web on March 3rd. For some people it confirmed their worst fears, for others it was a surprising, satisfactory tease of a new direction for the familiar story with plenty of references to the original franchise. Yours truly even ended up going down the rabbit hole of determining that the reboot really needs to take place in the universe of the original films to live up to its full potential.
But just talking about the trailer wasn’t good enough for one fan. Instead, they decided cut a much tighter, more enticing teaser trailer for the movie that shows plenty of the good stuff without showing too much. Honestly, I like it infinitely more than the original trailer. Watch the Ghostbusters trailer recut below. Read More »
Even though Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is just over a month away, I’m still far more interested in seeing what Suicide Squad brings to the table. While the trailer for the super villain team-up flick felt a little odd in the beginning, with the ballad portion of Queen’s signature track “Bohemian Rhapsody” playing throughout, the hard rock switch really brought the right energy to the movie, and I’m intrigued to see what director David Ayer can do with the DC Comics property.
Now one YouTuber has decided to bring Queen’s rock tune to the Marvel side of comic book movies by using it to create a new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, and it’s pretty cool. Watch it below. Read More »
We’ve already done plenty of looking back at the year in film that was 2015. We’ve featured a variety of retrospective trailer mash-ups. Plus, Angie Han, Jacob Hall, Jack Giroux and myself all counted down our favorite movies of the year. And now we’re looking forward to what’s coming in 2016. But it couldn’t hurt to take one more look back at last year, especially if it’s with a video that takes the biggest blockbusters of 2015 and recreates them all in LEGO form. Read More »
This whole week, the /Film crew has been running through their most anticipated films of 2016. Angie Han, Jacob Hall, Jack Giroux and yours truly all put together lists that included everything from blockbusters to musicals to hopeful Oscar contenders. But if that wasn’t enough to get you excited for all the cool movies we have coming this year, maybe First Cut 2016, a supercut put together from all the 2016 trailers we’ve seen so far, will do the trick.

“You may be done with the past, but the past isn’t done with you.” Another day, another look back at this year in cinema. Following the 2015 Salute to Cinema and Final Cut 2015, we’ve got yet another retrospective video looking back at a bunch of movies from this year, and this one comes from a familiar name.
Sleepy Skunk has delivered the 2015 Movie Trailer Mash-Up, throwing together the like of Pawn Sacrifice, Inside Out, Tomorrowland, Tangerine, Mr. Holmes, Jurassic World and dozens more into a single video. Check it out! Read More »
Throughout the week of Back to the Future Day, there were tons of tribute videos, mash-ups, parodies and promotions happening to take advantage of the celebration of the fictional importance of October 21st, 2015. And even though we’ve had our last round of Back to the Future Bits to cover as much as we could regarding the important day in time travel history, this latest video was just too impressive to pass up.
One fan has updated Back to the Future Part II to take place in the real 2015. This isn’t like that satirical animated sketch that made fun of the real 2015 we live in now. Instead, this takes footage from the movie and updates it with a couple key 2015 details: Jurassic World and Donald Trump. And if you’re a Back to the Future Part II fan, you can guess where each of them come into play. Read More »

Another day, another variation on the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’ve seen the original Star Wars trilogy presented like The Force Awakens, and someone else decided to cut footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with the score for the trailer. Now one more has just arrived, and I’m surprised it took this long.
Trek Wars is a mash-up of J.J. Abrams‘ rebooted Star Trek franchise and the director’s tackling of the Star Wars saga with The Force Awakens. And it’s edited in such a way that it makes it feel like the two iconic sci-fi properties are at war with each other. Check it out! Read More »
By now, you’ve probably seen both the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the most recent trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (though a new trailer for the latter is supposed to be coming soon). They’re both great teases for what will be two of the biggest films of 2015 and 2016 respectively. And they’re even more powerful when they join forces.
A new Batman v Superman Force Awakens trailer mash-up featuring footage from the DC Comics face-off set to the powerful music and selected voiceover of the sci-fi saga should please fans of all the franchises involved. Just let it in. Read More »
