Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice promises to be a thoroughly modern film, from the high-tech costumes and cutting-edge CG work, to the grim and gritty tone, to the annoying naming convention that suggests it won’t be a standalone feature but rather just one tiny component of a massive mega-franchise.
But for all these 21st century flourishes, the characters themselves are actually ancient by pop culture standards. Bats and Supes were created in the 1930s, and Wonder Woman and Lex Luthor in the 1940s. So naturally, the internet got to wondering: what would Batman v Superman have looked like if it were made 66 years ago? Watch the Batman v Superman 1940s trailer after the jump. Read More »

Right now Jurassic World is the biggest movie of 2015. As we get closer to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, analysts will start crunching the numbers to see if the sci-fi sequel will be able to beat the dinosaur franchise pseudo-reboot, and we might have a new box office king.
But even though the movie was a hit this year, one YouTuber imagined how much more groundbreaking Jurassic World would have been if it was released all the way back in 1978. Watch the 1978 Jurassic World trailer below! Read More »
Even though NBC’s comedy series The Office faltered in the seasons that followed the departure of Steve Carell, one of the most peculiar and entertaining characters to arrive during this time was replacement boss Robert California, played masterfully by James Spader, who went on to become the titular villainous artificially intelligent robot in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
But what if instead of recording all-new dialogue for the movie, Marvel Studios decided to just use lines delivered by Spader as Robert California? The result is an incredible mash-up where Robert California as Ultron may make the comic book villain a little more menacing that the real thing, mostly because you have no idea what the hell he’s talking about half the time.

Earlier this week, the world of Disney’s animated movies was combined with the studio’s own forthcoming blockbuster hit Star Wars: The Force Awakens in an impressive trailer mash-up. And now Disney’s recent animated comic book sensation Big Hero 6 meets their live-action cash cow The Avengers: Age of Ultron in another very well done trailer mash-up.

Back at Comic-Con, director J.J. Abrams said that a new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be arriving in the fall. That season has arrived, but we’re not sure exactly when the new trailer will arrive. A smart bet might be The Good Dinosaur, but that’s just speculation on my part.
While we wait, check out this clever Star Wars: The Force Awakens Disney trailer mash-up that takes characters and elements from some of the House of Mouse’s classic hand-drawn animated films (and some computer animated too) and puts them in scenes from the second teaser trailer for the forthcoming Star Wars sequel.

The DC Extended Universe isn’t putting out a female superhero movie until Wonder Woman in 2017, and Marvel Studios is lagging even further behind with Captain Marvel in 2018. Which is enough of a bummer as it is, but it gets even sadder when a video like this fan-made Spider-Gwen trailer comes along to show us what could be.
The video pulls clips from Easy A, Birdman, and of course, the Amazing Spider-Man movies to put Emma Stone at the center of the action. Like the comics on which it’s based, the (sadly nonexistent) Spider-Gwen movie reveals what would’ve happened Gwen Stacy, rather than Peter Parker, had been the one to get bitten by that superpower-granting arachnid.

It’s pretty tough to improve on “Uptown Funk,” which has got to be one of the most happy-making songs ever created. It’s catchy. It’s playful. It’s fun. It makes you want to dance, even if you’re not usually one for dancing, and it inspires you to kiss yourself, you’re so pretty.
Why, the only thing that could possibly make it better would be, I don’t know, a note-perfect supercut of dance scenes from 100 different films. Which of course is exactly what one genius on the Internet put together. Prepare yourself to smile big, and then hit the jump to watch the Uptown Funk 100 movies mashup. Read More »
Just last week brought the first teaser trailer for Disney’s new live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book, giving a realistic makeover to the 1967 animated musical adaptation, complete with some impressive visual effects bringing the animals to life.
And now an inevitable The Jungle Book trailer mash-up has surfaced, taking footage from the original animated movie and cutting it in the style of the recent teaser trailer for the 2016 release. Read More »
The time traveling adventure Back to the Future is fun for the whole family, the kind of sci-fi film that studios don’t really make anymore. It’s not overtly made for adults, but it’s not exactly geared towards kids either. It hits a sweet spot right in the middle, and that’s part of what makes it so perfect and timeless (no pun intended).
But what if Robert Zemeckis made an R-rated Back to the Future? YouTube user Andrew Robertson imagines what the film would have been like if it were R-rated, specifically because of vulgar language. After all, Marty McFly is a teenager, and he should be dropping more f-bombs. That’s exactly what happens in Back to the F*ckin Future. Read More »
