Venom Trailer Mash-Up with The Mask

So far the footage for the upcoming Spider-Man spin-off Venom from Sony Pictures has left a lot to be desire. The movie feels unlike anything we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which likely explains why it’s expressly not part of the successful, ongoing franchise of comic book movies featuring The Avengers. But maybe that’s because we’ve already seen this movie before.

A new trailer mash-up takes footage from The Mask, audio from Tom Hardy in the latest trailer for Venom, and clips from a bunch of other Jim Carrey movies to perfectly recreate the absurd comic book comedy starring Jim Carrey as a twisted, anti-hero comic book movie like Venom. It’s absolutely amazing, and it certainly doesn’t do Venom any favors. Read More »

It could be a diner, hotel, mansion, police station or anything. And sometimes, a certain location is just so good that it gets reused for a completely different movie, but you may not even recognize it.

Below you can check out a video that runs through 10 recycled movie sets that you might have seen in multiple movies. For example, did you know the interior of the iconic Ghostbusters firehouse can be seen as an auto shop in The Mask? Read More »
