What if Wes Anderson Rebooted the Spider-Man Franchise? We asked this question ourselves on the site recently (among others), and while it was a fun exercise in fanboy fantasising, little did we suspect that one of our dreams would be coming true so soon!
Well, sort of.
Jeff Loveness has put together this little spoof trailer that lovingly parodies both Spider-Man and Anderson’s signature style. It’s quick, funny, smartly-written, and doesn’t overplay its hand — and also has one hell of an Owen Wilson impression by Conrad Flynn.
The wonders of the internet and digital cinema mean that mere weeks after the Spider-Man 4 project imploded and Anderson’s name was bandied about as a possible replacement, someone put together such an accomplished spoof — and already over forty thousand people have seen it!
But enough talk! Watch the short film itself embedded below! (And a very big thank you to Beth Loves Bollywood for the link!)
