These Inventive Animated Trailers Reinterpret Cinema Classics

See your favorite films in a whole new way.

Over the last few years, The Animation Workshop, Denmark's graduate program for aspiring animators, has given students the coolest assignment ever: reinterpret movie trailers for the world's most iconic films. Depending on how staunch a purist you are, their take on Citizen Kane (rosebud is now "Gross Butt"), The Big Lebowski (Kung-Fu style), and The Graduate (set in Japan) are either sacrilegious or seriously awesome. Watch all 19 iterations of "The Trailer Project" or see some of the best below. It's a whole different look at The Dude.

    the animation/art on these is awesome, I would have liked to see longer trailers (2 min?) that incorporated more reference to and parody of the original films
