'Jaws,' 'Alien' & More Adorably Recreated by a Family and Their Baby

Cardboard Box Office

Parents do some pretty amazing things for their kids. Thanks to the Internet, now cinephiles get to show off the fun and weird things they do with their kids as they introduce them to the films that they loved growing up and still love to this day. One family decided to take that love to the next level with a project called Cardboard Box Office. The family explains on their blog, "The project began after finding that we had accumulated both a lot of cardboard boxes (due to moving to a new country) and a baby (due to giving birth). With our social lives drastically altered we decided to find a way to make some of those housebound weekends a little more fun. And the result is recreations of Jaws, Jurassic Park, Alien and more. Look!

Here are some of the Cardboard Box Office recreations from the family's blog (via

Parents Lilly and Leon explain, "The costumes, props, and sets in Cardboard Box Office are created entirely out of everyday household items, toys, cardboard, and three individuals slowly losing their sanity." That's their adorable baby Orson (likely named after another cinematic icon) prominently featured in these makeshift stills from iconic films like Die Hard, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and more. There are a handful of other photos that we didn't post here, but you can see all of them over at the Cardboard Box Office blog. Baby Orson is certainly going to have the best non-embarrassing, baby pictures.
