Alternate Movie History Goes Bananas

This week the Internet has been chock full of movies from alternate universes or revisionist takes on history that somehow don't quite add up, but that you'd definitely pay good money to see. First is the new one sheet for the promisingly titled Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter that you can see above. Next, from the awesome online gallery, Movies From An Alternate Universe comes this collection of movie posters for films that could have been.

As soon as someone invents time travel, let's let the Hollywood scriptwriters have first go on it. Seriously, who wouldn't want to see that version of Drive? All the posters are pretty special, and I can't recommend enough that you head over to the proper site to check out the rest of the collection in full. Finally, a trailer FDR American Badass!, a film that looks like it's a joke from some wacky cult sketch show you've never heard of, but (and I can't stress enough), THIS IS A REAL MOVIE.

It's the movie J. Edgar could have been, if only Clint Eastwood had been a braver filmmaker. Shoulda, woulda, coulda, Clint. Shoulda, woulda, coulda.

p.s. Thanks to Tom Hodge for sharing the trailer for FDR. I'd love to see him do a poster for it.
