Today in Movie Culture: Chris Farley in 'Mission: Impossible,' Pierce Brosnan as 007 in 'Spectre' and More

Jul 31, 2015

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

 

Movie Mashup of the Day:

Fitting for the day that both Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and the documentary I Am Chris Farley are released, here's a necessary mashup that casts Chris Farley as Ethan Hunt in the latest M: I movie. Because of the plane gag in Black Sheep, of course.

 

Movie Recasting of the Day:

What if Pierce Brosnan was still playing James Bond? Here he is inserted into the Spectre trailer in place of Daniel Craig's version of 007 (via Paste):

 

Vintage Image of the Day:

In honor of this being the 70th anniversary of the sinking of the U.S.S. Indianapolis, here is a still of Robert Shaw's character telling his famous monologue detailing the event in Jaws. Watch the clip here

 

Classic Cartoon of the Day:

Walt Disney's Silly Symphony animated short Night opened 85 years ago today. Watch it in full below.

 

Fan Art of the Day:

Speaking of Disney, artist Jirka Väätäinen is at it again with his digital imaginings of what the princes and other male leads from the studio's animated classics would look like in real life. Below is Eric from The Little Mermaid. Find the others at BuzzFeed.

 

Movie Truth of the Day:

This sketch by Zamboni Grenade illustrates the reality of knocking someone out using chloroform (via Neatorama):

 

Filmmaker in Focus:

Follow along with Stanley Kubrick with a supercut of the director's tracking shots from The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut, 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange (via Devour):

 

Star Wars of the Day:

Simon Pegg, who can be seen this weekend in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and maybe later this year in a cameo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, ranks the first six Star Wars movies from worst to first for MTV

 

Cosplay of the Day:

In honor of the character Harry Potter's 35th birthday today, here's an old favorite of Potter and Fluffy:

 

Classic Trailer of the Day:

This weekend marks the 30th anniversary of Follow That Bird, which doesn't get enough love, even from Muppets fans, just because it's a Sesame Street movie. Watch the original trailer below and tell me it doesn't look just as fun as at least the previous year's The Muppets Take Manhattan.
