Today in Movie Culture: 'Batman v Superman' Meets 'The Social Network,' 'Star Wars' Western Parody and More

Jul 23, 2015

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture:

 

Movie Mash-Up of the Day:

Jesse Eisenberg was obviously cast as Lex Luthor because of his Mark Zuckerberg portrayal, so this mash-up of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Social Network is obvious but necessary:

 

Star Wars of the Day:

Everyone knows the Star Wars movies are heavily influenced by Westerns, but that doesn't mean we can't appreciate this literal Star Wars take on the Western classic The Good, the Bad and the Ugly:

 

Supercut of the Day:

You've seen plenty of car chase supercuts, but this one is edited by Casper Christensen and as awesome as they come:

 

Movie Remix of the Day:

Mad Max: Fury Road has a bunch of pull-ins, push-outs and fast-motion shots. Editor Jorge Luengo has isolated all of them:

 

PSA of the Day:

Kevin Bacon is here to promote Cop Car and tell you to keep quiet and don't text during the movie for Alamo Drafthouse locations:

 

Alternate Movie Poster of the Day:

Paramount has released new minimalist poster designs for all five of the Mission: Impossible movies, ahead of the release of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Each one focuses on the installments' biggest stunts. Below you can see Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, and you can find the other four at Screen Crush.

 

Fake Movie of the Day:

More auteurs need to direct superhero movies. Here's an idea of what a John Cassavetes-helmed Wonder Woman might have looked like (via Live for Films):

 

Filmmaker in Focus:

Can anyone make David Lynch's work weirder than it already is? Editor Jacob T. Swinney seems to be trying with his montage isolating only pieces of ambience from Lynch's films:

 

Film in Focus:

Now let's focus on Michael Mann, specifically his 1981 movie Thief, and only in close-ups, care of editor Roman Holliday:

 

Classic Trailer of the Day:

This Sunday is the 60th anniversary of the premiere of Charles Laughton's The Night of the Hunter, one of the greatest American films of all time. Watch its original trailer below.
