Genre-bending mashups of movie trailers certainly aren't new but they seem to be enjoying a resurgence, perhaps thanks to frustrated audiences slogging through Hollywood's summer lineup. The more predictable the movie, the funnier it is to see it recast in a totally different light. Here are some gems that have gone viral on YouTube recently:
2001: A Space Odyssey recut as a summer blockbuster
Taken Nemo, Finding Nemo with the audio of Taken
The Lion King Rises, The Lion King with the audio of The Dark Knight Rises
