Cool Video – (500) Days of Summer – RECUT
I came across this video today that takes footage from Marc Webb‘s “(500) Days of Summer“, and cuts them into a new trailer for the film – with a slightly darker twist. The re-edited trailer gave me a good laugh, but also reminded me how important a trailer can be in providing an impression of the film they represent. All the footage here is from the original film, but when select shots are re-ordered and set to moodier music (from the upcoming “Inception“), it advertises a film that is much the opposite of the original’s light and quirky tone. It sort of makes you wonder how much you can trust a movie trailer to begin with?
