The end of 2016 is nearly upon us, and over the next couple weeks, we’ll be looking back at the year in cinema with some retrospective lists of our own, including our favorite movies of the year. But before we get to that, one of those retrospective movie trailer mash-ups has just arrived from one of our favorite editors.
Sleepy Skunk has been delivering a year-end movie trailer mash-up for the internet to enjoy for a few years now, and his 2016 Movie Trailer Mash-Up just went live today. As expected, it’s a fantastic look back at the dozens of movies we saw this year. There’s the good (Arrival), the bad (London Has Fallen), the hotly debated (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), the completely forgotten (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), and much more.

Two weeks ago, one of the most un-secret secrets in the theme park industry was officially pushed into the spotlight: Universal Studios is teaming up with Nintendo to bring the iconic video game publisher’s characters to Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Orlando, and Universal Studios Japan. Specific details were scarce, but there were promises of “expansive, immersive and interactive” attractions that would make you feel “as if you’re playing inside your favorite games – in real life.” Today, we still don’t know too much more than that, but the first piece of concept art for Nintendo Land has arrived, offering an early look at what the expect as well as the area’s full and proper name.

Like Star Wars, but wish it were a little more like Batman v Superman? Zack Snyder has you covered. The DC director has taken it upon himself to mash up the Batman v Superman trailer with Star Wars, reframing the conflict as “Dark Side Knight v Superjedi.” It’s a cute little exercise, but one that’s bound to ruffle some feathers in both fandoms — especially once you realize this means he’s cast Batman as some sort of Sith lord.

We’re over a week into the final month of 2016, and that means it’s time to start looking back at the year in cinema. While it might seem like a bummer of a year for a multitude of reasons, especially all those great talents we lost in entertainment this year, it’s important to remember that there were some great movies that hit the big screen this year, and that’s exactly what the first retrospective video for the films of 2016 does.
Moving Pictures 2016 assembles footage from dozens of films from the past year and puts them into a big montage. From the upcoming musical romance La La Land to the blockbuster battle of Batman v Superman to the indie comedy of Hunt for the Wilderpeople to the breathtaking sci-fi of Arrival to the underdog story of Eddie the Eagle, it’s been quite a year.

Earlier this week, the teaser trailer for Universal’s latest attempt to remake The Mummy hit the web. Tom Cruise stars in next summer’s blockbuster that puts a female Mummy at the center of the horror action adventure reboot, and his presence combined with the overall style of the movie gave many the feeling that this was just another Mission: Impossible movie. Well, what if it was?
A new trailer mash-up does some easy editing and turns The Mummy trailer into another Mission: Impossible sequel. All you need is some Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and some conveniently placed voiceover, and we’ve got quite the unique Mission: Impossible movie.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The Witch was one of the most unnerving and masterful horror films of the year. Some complained that they didn’t find it scary, but the terror at the center of this movie felt more horrifying than any of the jump scares that countless other horror movies brought to the table this year. But what if the movie was directed by Wes Anderson?
Funnily enough, the visuals of Robert Eggers film which brings terror into the lives of a 1630s New England family work perfectly in a trailer edited in the style of one of Wes Anderson‘s comedies. Combine that with some cooky music and clever editing, and The Witch becomes a different movie entirely.

Because some movies actually shoot on location instead of on a sound stage, fans have a chance to visit the real life settings of some of their favorite movies and TV shows. However, this can create some frustration with those in charge of maintaining said locations that are constantly visited by tourists. Case in point, the Tanner family home from the sitcom Full House.
The house of the Tanner family from ABC’s sitcom Full House actually exists in San Francisco. The interior isn’t anything like that of the actual house, but it’s the exterior with the red door that fans have been anxious to snap a photo of whenever they’re in The City by the Bay. Unfortunately for fans, the house hasn’t looked the way it does in the show for years now, and the owner of the house was not keen on the couple hundred people per day who would stop by the house for a picture. But now checking out the Full House home just got a little easier. Read More »
