Be Kind Rewind: Homemade Ghostbusters and RoboCop Trailers
By next February you're going to fall in love with this movie. It's already the one movie that's the top of my most anticipated list before next summer. Be Kind Rewind is written and directed by Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Dave Chappelle's Block Party, Science of Sleep) and stars Jack Black and Mos Def as video store clerks who accidentally erase all the movies in the store and have to make their own. Hopefully you've seen the trailer and know what it's about. These are a few of the fake trailers for their homemade movies that they made that will appear in the movie and are quiet hilarious teases for what we'll eventually see on the big screen.
The new website for Be Kind Rewind has launched, BeKindMovie.com, where you can find these trailers and much more. I highly suggest you check out that website, it's pretty awesome. They "swede" the entire internet, including Google and Amazon. There are also trailers for Rush Hour 2, Boyz In Da Hood, and Driving Miss Daisy as well, but we decided to show you two of the best: Ghostbusters and RoboCop.
What is sweding? Sweding is re-making something from scratch using whatever you can get your hands on. Or as Jack Black describes it: "You take what you like and mix it with some other things you like and make a new thing! It's not the thing it was, but now it's a new thing based on the old thing. It's putting you into the thing you like, that's sweding."

In Be Kind Rewind, Jack Black stars as a loveable loser stuck in a life that’s too small for his big dreams. But when he unintentionally erases all the tapes in a video store where his best friend works, he devises a plan to satisfy the store’s few loyal customers by re-creating and re-filming every movie they decide to rent. The actual movie trailer looks fantastic as well, I've got a feeling this is going to be a new personal favorite. Be Kind Rewind arrives in theaters on January 25th, 2008.
