Spider-Man 3 Preview Footage

Here is the Spider-Man 3 preview footage that aired on NBC last night.


Before you check it out, you should note that it is over 7 minutes long and appears to contain one of the key action sequences in the film. So, if you think this may be a spoiler then try and resist the urge to hit play.

Part of me is a little surprised that the filmmakers and studio have released so much footage all in one go, but I guess they want to build anticipation with only 2 months to go before the release date on May 4th.

Glengarry Glen Ross Trailer

Those clever folks behind the Must Love Jaws and 10 Things I Hate About Commandments have created a spoof trailer for Glengarry Glen Ross called Glen & Gary & Glen & Ross.


(It is very funny but if you are at work I’d turn the volume down or use headphones as the F-word gets a regular outing)

Tom Hanks as James Bond

This trailer mashup from Dan Perrault and Matt Dahan of Double D Enterprises and Chocolate Cake City depicts Tom Hanks as the next Bond.

It is very funny, with some clever use of old Hanks films (especially the final line)

Hot Fuzz – New Trailer

Here is the trailer for Hot Fuzz – the new film from the team behind Spaced and Shaun of the Dead.


It looks like it could be very funny indeed and I particularly like the way the opening music and voiceover references the trailer to Lethal Weapon:

Reservoir Droogs

Although this mashup of Reservoir Dogs and A Clockwork Orange comes across like some kind of dubbed martial arts movie it is still pretty well executed:

Cocktail Trailer Mash Ups

Who would have thought Cocktail – a rather cheesy 1988 film with Tom Cruise as a barman – would provide such rich source material for trailer mashups?

There is Bar Wars: Cocktail Hour (Cocktail mixed with Star Wars) by the clever people at Company X.

Then there is Caaktail – a Bollywood version:

And finally, a horror version:

Mashup Heaven

There is now a blog dedicated to film trailer mashups called The Trailer Mash and it features some excellent examples of the genre. The Shining recut as a romantic comedy is still probably the funniest but there is some great new stuff on there, especially Lost reimagined as The A Team (!) and Garden State redone as a thriller.
