Cinema Alternatif: Movies From a Parallel Earth

All this has happened before...

I’ll say right now that I would totally watch a badly cut together remake of Avatar that uses color-shifted clips from Star Trek, West Side Story, and The Longest Day, and laugh and laugh. This poster, like those that come after it, cut right to the heart of a cinematic time period and the taste of Hollywood at the time, to point out that if this story had shown up in that era, William Shatner would totally have gotten his way into a blue girl’s pants, and no better blue girl than the one who Hollywood already considered to be an virginal all-American sweetheart capable of passing for an ethnicity she clearly was not.

Venture on with us, into movies that never happened… except in the other leg of the Trousers of Time.

You can see a few more (generally the less sci-fi oriented ones) at Behance.

Have a tip we should know? tips@themarysue.com

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
