02:39 am - Trailer remixes!

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I have found [a] the best term for those movie clips where someone takes scenes from a movie and edits them together into a trailer that makes the movie look like a different genre, and [b] another really good example of these!

Lore Sjöberg calls them "trailer remixes". This one is "Office Space"... as a HORROR MOVIE.


Also I've been spending the day really getting into my Cars DVD.

Current Mood: tiredtired
Current Music: Sheryl Crow - Real Gone (Cars soundtrack)

I suppose another way to find hidden stuff on a DVD would be to manually select each title/chapter/track/whatever and note which ones aren't the movie or 'normal' extras. Wouldn't be suprised if some DVDs have clips that aren't accessible any other way...

That can be a problem. Remember Galaxy Quest? The ads made it look like a cheesy sci-fi comedy. It wasn't until it had left theatres and gone to video that I found out it was actually a clever parody of Star Trek and its associated fandom, a comedy about the cast of a cheesy sci-fi show suddenly finding themselves in outer space for real! The ads failed to convey that.

An early trailer for Men in Black did a terrible job of conveying that it was more comedy than thriller. More recently, Little Children was made to look overly scary in its trailer.

Since I've seen Office Space recently, I appreciate that one very much.
