Thanks to the twisted mind of the recently passed horror icon Wes Craven, we’ll forever have Freddy Krueger to haunt our nightmares. And while one of the Nightmare on Elm Street films finally decided to have Freddy’s victims go out of their way to fight back in their dreams, only one dream expert has the power to stop him once and for all: Leonardo DiCaprio.
More specifically, it’s Leonardo DiCaprio as Cobb, the character from Christopher Nolan’s dreamscape action thriller Inception. A trailer mash-up entitled Inception on Elm Street makes Cobb the dream gatekeeper that Freddy Krueger has to get by first before he came leap from our dreams into the real world. It makes for a rather intriguing concept. Read More »

Here at SlashFilm, one of the films we’re looking forward to the most before the end of 2015 is The Martian, the adaptation of Andy Weir’s book of the same name, directed by Alien and Gladiator helmer Ridley Scott. If you haven’t seen the trailer, you can watch it right here. Or simply know that the film follows an astronaut (Matt Damon), who is left behind on Mars and is forced to figure out how to survive for four years until his crew can return to rescue him.
Some clever editor has taken footage from Pixar’s sci-fi adventure WALL-E and cut it with the voiceover from the most recent trailer for The Martian, resulting in a survival story that is just as intense as it is adorable. Watch The Martian WALL-E trailer mash-up below! Read More »
There’s a good chance no one has ever thought that they’d like to see a movie that intersects the worlds of films such as Star Wars, Scarface, John Wick, Collateral, Terminator, Trainspotting, Saturday Night Fever and more. But that’s exactly what Antonio Maria Da Silva has done with a wholly strange, mesmerizing and fantastic cleverly edited short compiled by using clips from all these movies.
We’ve featured supercuts and trailer remixes before, but this Hell’s Club mash-up is something completely different. We don’t want to give anything away, but Da Silva sets up the video by saying, “There is a place or fictional characters meet. Outside of time, outside of all logic, this place is known as Hell’s Club. Just watch it and be mesmerized. Read More »
Next spring, before Steve Rogers and Tony Stark square off in Captain America: Civil War, the big screen will see a comic book match-up that is unprecedented in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But two heroes at odds is nothing new, and a modern classic tale that pitted two now-iconic heroes against each other has been given a DC Comics twist.
It’s no secret that Woody and Buzz Lightyear weren’t the best of friends when Toy Story premiered in 1995, and now they’re given The Dark Knight and Man of Steel confrontation treatment in this cleverly edited Toy Story Batman v Superman mash-up. Watch below! Read More »
Yesterday brought some brief new footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens yesterday, featuring the first footage of John Boyega wielding a lightsaber (specifically the lightsaber that was Anakin Skywalker’s, passed down to Luke Skywalker by Obi-Wan Kenobi).
But today we have a fanmade trailer for one of the movies from the original trilogy, The Empire Strikes Back. YouTube user Dan Flesher has cut a modern trailer for Episode V, using the same music, cuts and cues from the second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s an extremely well-done edit that uses footage from the movie we all know in a cool teasing way. It makes me wish I could watch Star Wars all over again without knowing anything about it.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Just recently, a video essay turned the beloved 80s movie The Karate Kid on its be proposing that protagonist Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) was actually the villain in the movie, not Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka). There were some pretty convincing and compelling arguments to be made that LaRusso isn’t exactly a positive figure for a hero. But sometimes that’s how it works in storytelling.
Now a new fanmade trailer has taken a more modern hero and made him look like the villain. It’s no secret that Harry Potter is the hero of the book and film series that bares his name in each and every title, but a new fanmade trailer uses some clever edits to show Harry Potter as a villain instead. Watch below! Read More »
It’s no secret that the hit Adult Swim series Rick and Morty takes plenty of inspiration from Back to the Future protagonists Doc and Marty. In fact, the series began as an animated parody from co-creator Justin Roiland called The Adventures of Doc and Mharti, which co-creator Dan Harmon has referred to as “a bastardization, a pornographic vandalization” of the classic time traveling trilogy.
Well, now everything has come full circle as a fan of both the aforementioned animated series and film franchise has created a Back to the Future Rick and Morty mash-up that probably actually exists as a feature length film in some parallel universe. Read More »
In just over a couple weeks, fans of Mad Max: Fury Road will be able to pick up their own copy of George Miller‘s magnificent action bonanza on Blu-Ray and DVD on September 1st (or you can get it right now on digital download). But for those who aren’t so patient, maybe a new trailer mash-up with the post-apocalyptic sequel will hold you over.
YouTube user Egor Zhgun decided to take characters from the hit show Adventure Time and create a short little animated trailer as if they were the characters in Mad Max: Fury Road. It’s a little bit trippy, not unlike the real movie, or for that matter the TV show, with Finn as Max and Jake as one of the vehicles on the chase, but it’s a fun little creation. Read More »
Even though X-Men from the year 2000 may have been the first Marvel Comics film that truly launched the comic book movie boom that hasn’t stopped in 15 years (and is showing no signs of slowing down), the very first theatrical movie based on a Marvel comic was Howard the Duck in 1986. Sadly, and hilariously, it was an absolute disaster.
But ever since Marvel Studios revived the character for a credits scene appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy, there’s been a resurgence of interest in the wise-cracking, anthropomorphic duck named Howard. And that’s mainly because fans think that Marvel Studios can do the character justice on the big screen now, not unlike Rocket Raccoon.
And now a new trailer remix gives Howard the Duck the Marvel cinematic universe treatment by blending footage from the original movie with Marvel Studios movies, imagining a big screen reboot in today’s world. Watch the Howard the Duck trailer remix now! Read More »
