Austin Powers recut as a gritty thriller is moody baby, Yeah!


There are great recuts all over the internet these days, but we'd have never picked this as something that could work quite so well.

Ryan Shukis has taken footage from the three Mike Myers-starring Austin Powers spy spoofs and combined them to create a haunting, paranoid trailer reimagining the series as a thriller.

Using some excellently out-of-context dialogue, it also demonstrates the importance of music to trailers, with Star Fusion by Really Slow Motion - as used on the Star Trek: Beyond second trailer - used to stunning effect.

Forget groovy baby, this is moody, baby.
