This weekend sees the release of the Brad Pitt-led World War Z, with the zombie genre given a whole new scope with a blockbuster budget. When the first trailer landed late last year, I loved the look of it. And as we got closer and closer to this weekend’s release, I got to work on my first mash-up trailer: Wayne’s World War Z.
I think the first proper mash-up trailer I saw was last year’s The Lion King Rises, which is absolutely epic. The audio of The Dark Knight Rises set to the visuals of Disney’s classic, The Lion King – amazing.
I’ve toyed with the idea of making one of my own since then. And now Wayne’s World War Z has finally given me the chance, cutting together the audio from the classic ’90s comedy with the audio/visuals of that first World War Z trailer.
Whilst Wayne’s World 3 might well just be a pipe dream, here’s how things could go if Wayne and Garth had to save humanity from a zombie virus. (Humanity would probably be doomed, but at least we’d go out laughing.) Let us know what you think in the comments below.
World War Z hits cinemas in the US and UK tomorrow, June 21st.
