Modern Flicks Meet Retro Cinema: 11 Movie Poster Mash-Ups

Mash-ups, from Star Wars as Dr. Who characters to Mario the plumber as Captain Kirk, are simply too much fun. The internet makes it possible to blend in anything with anyone. While it’s possibly impossible, or financially irrelevant, to make today’s film to look like they were done in the 1950’s, with all of its style, good and negatives, it’s awfully cool to blend in the different eras, ideas and figures into these awesome movie posters.

The artists involved? Well, this idea originated with and evolved into this and although the idea has been done before, I think these are the best alternative posters for movie mash-ups, with Frank Zappa replacing Jeff Bridges in the Big Lebowski as the best of them, I’ve ever seen.

James Dean as Ryan Gosling? I’d pay to see that once or twice.

It probably won’t be as raunchy as the 00’s version, but I’m pretty sure Muhammad Ali’s alone would be a reason to go watch this.

Spock saying  Yippee-ki-yay motherfucker ? Sounds too good to be true.

Hondo wearing tights, or Clint Eastwood as the villain? Hard to pick.

If you can’t get enough of Mash-Ups, than this He-Man encounter with modern music should definitely satisfy you. For Harry Potter fans, this should be pleasing as well.
