From Thailand, by way of the website Kotaku, comes this Sweded shot-for-shot remake of the Iron Man 3 trailer that , frankly would have made Michel Gondry's Be Kind Rewind a better movie. My favorite scenes are the one in which the Tony Stark stand-in gets a toilet plunger for an oxygen mask in the operating room, the falling Air Force One flight attendants and the shots of Stark's iron army assembling in the night sky. more »
"Why don't people send this stuff to me?!" Bryan Singer cries through laughter, watching YouTube parodies of his films, including X-Men, The Usual Suspects, and Jack the Giant Killer. It's kind of adorable. Welcome to the internet, Bryan Singer!
Say what you will about James Cameron’s epic 1997 romance Titanic, but everyone in the universe has seen it, sniffled at it, or at least has had its iconic moments indelibly seared into their brains. (Don’t even get me started on the soul-piercing power of “My Heart Will Go On.”) When it comes to Titanic fandom, 15 years of romantic obsession plus the internet have yielded quite the bounty of fan-made Titanic creations. Naturally, with Titanic 3-D steering towards theaters this week, Movieline searched near, far, and all across YouTube in search of the best of them.
Comedy troupe Upright Citizen's Brigade take their sketch and improv hijinks to the feature film format in Freak Dance, a movie that purports to spoof "every dance movie ever made." Featuring cheesy '80s fashion and bad '80s movie attitudes to match, it certainly covers a lot of ground in the dance movie genre. But every dance movie there is? We'll see about that. Upside: It does have Amy Poehler spitting lines like, 'That music sounds like murder!' Check it out after the jump.
The parody trailers for The Muppets have tackled rom coms, Green Lantern, and more over the course of the marketing campaign for the Jason Segel-led November release, but this one takes the cake. Because you haven't really thought enough about Kermit and Miss Piggy until you've seen them posing as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander. (Sans pierced-nipple nudity, but still.) Muppets, you win.
