YouTuber SleepySkunk has edited together a rather wonderful mashup of movie trailers from 2012.
|By 2012 in movies, this isn’t what we mean.|
It goes through three parts – the horror/action movie build (Resident Evil: Retribution, Prometheus, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), the comedy hijinks (Project X, Wreck-It Ralph, Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie) and the overwhelmingly epic (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Life of Pi, Cloud Atlas).
The parts overlap, with many, many other films used (for a full list, jump over to SleepySkunk’s Tumblr). For instance, Dredd 3D cameos in the comedy part, but because the shots are linked so well visually – from fire to explosion, from tracking shot to tracking shot – the video feels like one big trailer.
2012 ain’t over yet. But blimey, there were some bloody good films out this year.*
*The Amazing Spider-Man not included.
