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.

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 »
