It’s been just one week since the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted online, and I’ve lost count of how many times that I’ve watched it. I’ve even taken the time to repeatedly listen to the version that isolates just the music from the trailer, which isn’t actually new music from John Williams, but repurposed versions of his original themes.
But if you’re somehow getting bored with The Force Awakens trailer, one fan has spiced things up by taking footage from the original Star Wars trilogy and cutting it to the music from The Force Awakens trailer. The result is a Star Wars trilogy trailer that has me excited to marathon of all of them again in December. Read More »

Clearly, there’s an angel with me right now. How else to explain that mere minutes after I professed my love for Angels in the Outfield right here on /Film, I came across a 30 for 30 episode about same?
Okay, so by “episode” I mean “College Humor parody.” But that doesn’t make 30 for 30: Angels in the Outfield any less magical. Watch the 30 for 30 Angels in the Outfield video after the jump. Read More »
It’s almost unanimous among fans that the worst thing the Star Wars prequels have contributed to the canon of the galaxy far, far away is the character of Jar Jar Binks. The Gungan companion is a dumb cartoon, and it seems George Lucas really wanted to fuel the fire by having him be the senator who makes the motion to give emergency powers to Chancellor Palpatine, thus bringing about the creation of the clone army that helped spawn the Galactic Empire.
And now he’s back to ruin the final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer with a fanmade cut that inserts him all over the place, sometimes in a very impressive way. Watch the Jar Jar Binks The Force Awakens trailer below! Read More »

Star Wars fans are special breed. Their skin may be tough, thickened by years of prequel abuse, but their cores remain as hopeful as ever. Everyone knows that the last three (maybe even last four, depending on who you ask) movies in the series were no good, and yet here we are. We’re two months out from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and you’ve never seen a fanbase more ready to love a movie they haven’t seen. We’re an awfully optimistic bunch considering the scars we still bear from 1999.
So yeah, Star Wars fans are the kind of people who take all three of the trailers for The Force Awakens and edit them into one epic four-minute preview that utilizes every frame of footage we have seen so far. Star Wars fans are also the kind of people who watch and enjoy this kind of thing, so you know what to do. This is one of the more impressive fan supercuts you’re going to encounter.

As soon as a sequel to Jurassic World was set for release on June 22nd, 2018, following the record-breaking box office performance this summer, there were plenty of jokes thrown around about how the next film in the franchise would have to up the ante by going with the title Jurassic Galaxy.
Well, since Chris Pratt is one of the stars of Jurassic World and he also happens to star in a little film called Guardians of the Galaxy, you can guess what one creative YouTuber did in their creation of a Jurassic Galaxy trailer mash-up. Read More »

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.
