My FB memories threw up a reminder about Peter Stults's What If: Movies ReImagined for Another Time and Place , and it turns out he's now up to volume 8 in his series of movie posters reimagined with new casts and the stying of the times, with the aforesaid Buster Keaton as the first one up. Other highlights: 'Eraserhead, a film by Charles Chaplin'; A Clockwork Orange starring the Beatles, Kill Bill starring the Spice Girls, the Aliens series as blaxploitation flics starring Pam Grier, Audrey Hepburn in Black Swan; James Dean and Janet Leigh in True Romance and so on. He even created an all-new Connery Bond for an episode of 'Timeless'. Definitely worth a look, though you may have to be an early film buff like [personal profile] sovay to pick up all the nuances.

I've linked direct to volume 8 as that has links to all of the other volumes.

I've seen some of these on Tumblr, but not the full array! (I'm not sure Cornel Wilde is well enough known anymore for everyone to appreciate him starring in Assassin's Creed by Anthony Mann, although that sounds about right to me.) Nice!

Okay, casting Peter O'Toole as Walter/David in Alien: Covenant is the obvious callback, but still great.

Gene Wilder probably would have done a really nice Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
