Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan isn’t even playing on 100 screens in the United States yet but, based on back to back huge weekends at the box office, it’s safe to say the film is building some serious word of mouth. However, while most of that word of mouth is incredibly positive, there are plenty of people who find many of the film’s more eccentric and out there moments to be comical.
It’s safe to assume that Jeffrey McHale is one of those people. The director/editor has made a very clever trailer mash up using the full audio track from the Black Swan trailer, edited with applicable footage from Paul Verhoeven’s infamous Showgirls. And, to be honest, it works extremely well. It is NSFW however, as Showgirls was an NC-17 movie. Check it out after the break. Read More »

A NSFW movie trailer for Showgirls 2 has shown up online… wait a second, Showgirls 2? Really? That’s right, someone raised $25 million to shoot a sequel to Paul Verhoeven‘s controversial and widely panned 1995 cult film Showgirls. Directed by Marc Vorlander, Showgirls 2: The Story of Hope is about a stripper who dies from a dose of contaminated batch ofcocaine, and her brother who goes on a mission to find the responsible and enact revenge. It looks horrible, and not even Hollywood horrible. It looks like bad 1980′s skinemax horrible. You can watch the trailer now on Showgirls2.com. Thanks to movieline for discovering this.
