Coming To Star Wars

About a year ago I came across a reworked trailer for Stephen King's The Shining. The movie, you may recall, was and remains one of the more memorable performances of Jack Nicholson's career. The fact that it was a creepy, disturbing horror movie set in a vacated Colorado ski lodge in the dead of winter only added to its worthiness.

The above-described reworked trailer features footage from the film with Peter Gabriel's "Solsbury Hill" as background music The on-screen text suggests a warm, fuzzy film about a boy and his dad -- decidedly different than the original.

The latest reworking of an original film -- or two, in this upcoming case -- is a keeper.

Following is a rockin' mash-up of Coming to America and Star Wars. Go here to check it out.

PS Props to Fresh Arrival for this ;-)
