As someone living in a country where Pokémon Go has yet to come out, it’s been certainly something to be an outsider looking in upon the sheer Pokémania that has gripped the U.S. this weekend—a touch disconcerting even, which this brilliant mash-up between the app and Black Mirror highlights to hilarious effect.
In the far flung future of a decade or so from now, where Marvel throws a money avalanche at Fox to get access to the cinematic rights for their Mutant superheroes, we’ll probably get a pretty fun Avengers and X-Men crossover. For now, though. we’ll have to make do with this delightful fan-made mash-up.
That first big trailer for The Force Awakens was great, and we’ve established that anytime you cut another movie in the same style, the end result is just as great. So what happens when you recut Harry Potter with it? Perfection.
Even if you don’t know the Dire Straits song “Walk of Life” by name you’ll recognize it immediately when you hear it. Fun fact: It’s the perfect song to end any movie.
There’s an unwritten rule in the wake of a DC superhero movie trailer coming out that someone, somewhere, will inevitably make a mash-up using the audio track of the trailer with footage from the beloved DC animated universe, and it will be fantastic. Suicide Squad is certainly no different.
One of our favorite things about the current Flash show is how it’s embraced, and integrated, members of the cast of the short lived 90s Flash series. But what if instead of John Wesley Shipp being Barry’s dad, what if he showed up as his former self, the Scarlet Speedster himself? Well, let’s find out.
Ah, the 90s X-Men cartoon. Is there nothing you can’t improve? Sure, the actual trailer for X-Men Apocalypse was really good, but this mashup of its dialogue and soundtrack with footage from the classic animated series just has us wanting this instead.
Mashup video edits are universal favorites among fans, and have been for ages. Wars and Trek? Sure. DC’s live action movies and TV shows in one trailer? Fantastic! The BBC mashing up its hit crime shows Sherlock, Luther, and The Fall? Okay that’d be—wait, hold the phone, what??
Crisis on Infinite Earths—the epic 1985 DC comics saga brought together disparate heroes across DC’s vast multiverse, and eventually smooshed it all together into a single line of continuity. But now we actually have enough live action adaptations of DC’s heroes for this pretty rad fan mashup, in the style of Crisis.
I really appreciate a good mashup. Hell’s Club puts together dozens of famous characters into one club, and it’s spectacular.
In some alternate universe, Pixar’s Wall*E was about a small robot stranded on an uninhabited Earth, voiced by Matt Damon. Someone’s mashed up the trailer for The Martian with the animated flick, and it works out pretty nicely!
Hey, remember that bewilderingly awesome Adventure Time and Mad Max: Fury Road mash-up art made by Ryan May? Well, Egor Zghun has taken it into the world of animation, and the results are just as fantastic. Now, if someone would please make an entire shot-for-shot Adventure Time-themed remake of Fury Road, that would…
Someone has taken the footage of Superman obliviously destroying Metropolis in Man of Steel and cut it together with the footage of Bruce Wayne running through the streets of Metropolis in the latest Batman V. Superman trailer. The result? A very cool fan edit where we see exactly what makes Batman so furious.
It’s Fury Time! Ryan May has cast the characters from Adventure Time in Mad Max: Fury Road. In his hands, Finn is Max, Princess Bubblegum is Furiosa, and the Ice King is a princess-stealing Immortan Joe.
Oh, what a lovely day.
Females are strong as hell, whether they’ve lived most of their lives in a bomb shelter sequestered from humanity or are driving a giant war-rig across the post-apocalyptic wasteland. So it makes sense that someone would modify The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s theme song to suit Fury Road’s star.
I know you can’t swing a dead cat GIF on the internet without hitting some kind of Star Wars/Star Trek mash-up. But still, I highly recommend you take 80 seconds of your life to watch this trailer for The Carbonite Maneuver, which is not only exceedingly well done but actually looks... well, kind of real.
Did you find this weekend’s new Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer a bit... dark? Well, YouTube user Bobby Burns has just improved it considerably by replacing Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill with footage of Adam West’s Batman and Christopher Reeve’s Superman. It’s outstanding.
CSI:Cyber is Gizmodo’s new favorite terrible tech-tinged procedural that may or may not be written by people who have never actually seen a computer. It’s great! This compilation of buzzwords from the fourth and fifth episodes of this season is a nonsense cacophony.
