Check This Out: Watchmen and Wall-E Mashup Video
by Alex Billington
March 21, 2009
I know that we are pretty much done talking about Watchmen for the moment, but this is just cool, and I wish I would've seen it earlier in the year before Watchmen had hit theaters. I'm not normally a fan of most YouTube trailer mashups, but this one featuring Wall-E visuals and the Watchmen trailer audio is just plain awesome. Thanks to YouTube user TM2Megatron we can see what it would be like if Zack Snyder had made Wall-E in the same style as Watchmen (or so that is the joke). Being a big fan of both movies, I did get a kick out of watching this, and it's just one of those funny weekend videos you've got to check out.
"In anticipation of the upcoming release of Watchmen, I decided to take a crack at what many have done for other films; and set the audio from Watchmen's epic IMAX teaser to scenes from one of my favourite films of all time. So sit back, and enoy WALL•E redone in Watchmen's style!" The entire trailer was done in very high resolution, so I've got to give props to TM2Megatron for doing such a great job on putting this together. Even if you hated one or both of these films, you should still be able to enjoy this either way. And if anyone else comes across any other cool trailer mashups that are this well done, please let me know!

I have to say, that is the best mixing of two completely opposite worlds that I have seen in quite a while. VERY VERY good work, lot of time took to mash it up correctly and still have it look like a watchmen-esque preview. Good work.

That was very very very awesome and both are fav films. I was wondering which trailer they'd use and the first trailer was a good choice. I wonder how Take a Bow would have played out though.

Kind of makes you think how audio can be used to set a tone for a movie. Meaning that if somebody had never seen or heard of Wall-E before, seeing this would have them thinking it was a dark tragedy. Someday it would be nice to see if the creative minds at Pixar could put their talents towards creating something a little more adult than their typical movies. (Not that I don't enjoy the ones they make now.)

good idea 14, it would be nice to see a change of tone once in a while.

The TDK vs. Toy Story video is great as well, but I'm also a huge fan of the 300 vs. Halo trailers (of which there are WAY too many). Pretty much any trailer attached to a Zack Snyder film will spawn awesome spin-offs.

That was very cool, props to you guys!

This is a great mashup, you can always find quality vids like this on youtube that seem to come out of nowhere.
