Recut movie trailers are soooo good! [Classick Cinema/The League]

This week’s assignment from the League: It’s soooo good.

I love movie trailers. In fact, other than old cartoons, pro wrestling vids, chiptune remixes and videogame commentaries, movie trailers happen to be my most-watched genre on YouTube. Thanks to the creativity of several users with way more time on their hands than you or I have, I’ve been entertained over and over by recut movie trailers. These crazy kids remastered classics and recent hits alike so that what you thought was just old is now new again. The Dark Knight as a romantic comedy? Done! Full Metal Jacket as an inspiring feel-good movie? Yes, Drill Sergeant!

Here are a few recut movie trailers that I think you’ll enjoy:

Groundhog Day as a Horror Thriller

Mrs. Doubtfire, The Horror Version (thanks to MeisterShake)

Mary Poppins Recut as a Thriller

Brokeback to the Future

The Shining as a whimsical family vacation movie

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – Sad Drama cut

Full Metal Jacket – Feelgood Movie edition

Forrest Gump as a Gangster Movie

  1. This post made me smile. I never thought about converting a family movie into a horror film. Funny! 😀
