You can always count on the Darth Blender YouTube channel retro-fying the latest comic book movie trailers, which has become the channel’s thing if you will. Last week we shared Blender’s Aquaman trailer remake, which took the sounds and dialogue of Jason Mamoa’s Aquaman movie and overlaid it onto edited footage from the Hanna-Barbera DC cartoons, and it worked pretty damn well.
Today, the Darth Blender team has remade the Shazam trailer for SDCC using footage from the 1974 Shazam TV-series, which I didn’t even know existed, so if anything else these mashups are great for providing geek history lessons. The Shazam remake doesn’t have spot on dialogue dubbing because it uses footage from a live-action show versus a cartoon, but the scenes chosen to recreate the trailer do mashup very well to what is being said in the dialogue, which again comes from the new film’s trailer.
It’s still fun to watch, especially when you soak in the 70’s-style of TV programming, which was suspect to say the least. Head on up above to check it out.
