A trailer can make or break a movie. The good ones are capable of making us overly excited (Thor: Ragnarok, Justice League), while the bad ones (Ghostbusters, Gods Of Egypt) have audiences running for the hill. But alas, you don’t need to be an editor of a full film to make a trailer any longer (thanks Youtube!). Some fans have taken it upon themselves to create masterful trailers – some for films that don’t even exist. We take a closer look at some of the coolest fan-made trailers over recent years.
1. Thundercats Fan-Made Trailer:
Thundercats, a movie that might never ever happen, is the subject of this really great trailer by WormyT. It features Brad Pitt as Lion-O, Hugh Jackman as Tygra and Vin Diesel as Panthro.
2. Green Lantern Fan-Made Trailer:
Before Ryan Renolds disappointed us as Green Lantern, fans were rooting for Nathan Fillion to get the part. That never happened of course. Youtuber jaronpitts gives us a glimpse at what could have been.
3. Half Life Fan-Made Trailer:
Ever wondered what a Half Life movie would be like? Wonder no more. Machinima have put together this impressive trailer to show us what it might be like.
4. Marvel Zombies Fan-Made Trailer:
Hollywood is spitting out both zombie and comic book films faster than you can say “Aaaarrrrh!!”. Okay, this one is completely ridiculous but super funny. I would pay to watch this!
5. Super Mario Fan-Made Trailer:
What if the spaghetti brothers had their very own movie. They did? Sorry, I completely erased that one from my memory. This seems a little better. A little.
6. Superman: Genesis Fan-Made Trailer:
There are many people who would have preferred Smallville‘s Tom Welling to play Superman in a movie. Here is what that looks like.
7. The Dark Knight Rises Fan-Made Trailer:
What if Christopher Nolan went a slightly different route? What if Hugo Strange was the villain in the third instalment?
8. He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe Fan-Made Trailer:
It’s amazing what people can do with CG these days. Just have a look at this truly awesome He-Man clip.
9. Ghostbusters 3 Fan-Made Trailer:
Ghostbusters 3 has been in the making for a number of years now. Most of the delays can be attributed to Bill Murray’s unwillingness to return as the lead. This following trailer is a good example of what we could expect. But is Ghostbusters 3 past its sell by date?
10. Superman vs. Doomsday Fan Made Trailer:
What if Superman Returns took a different direction and Bryan Singer actually had the Man of Steel fighting a worthy villain. What if it was Doomsday? kashchei2003’s trailer might be more exciting than Superman Returns was. This is easily one of the best fan-made trailers out there.
