The time has come for Deadpool to rub blood-splattered elbows with Kung Fu Panda 3 and anyone with an invitation to the second My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Yup, no more waiting for Joey Fatone and Wade Wilson to pair up for an R&B album to have this scenario morph into semi-reality. How? Through the celebrated art of the year-end mashup.
Clark Zhu has woven together an absolutely delirious retrospective on the year in film courtesy of his latest trailer montage and this one decidedly massive. Featuring over 260 motion pictures on display, critical darlings like Moonlight live in the same universe as box office bombs like Pete’s Dragon (It’s very easy to forget that the Pete’s Dragon redo arrived in theaters. Presumably one near you.). It’s also a place where it’s fun to revisit how much more appealing some of this year’s fare was before it actually tumbled out into the world as proper full-length motion pictures.

Blockbusters, bombs and pictures that slipped under the radar all get the spotlight in this surprisingly efficient movie casserole that’s been assembled with a clear level of care. Oh, also Rebel Wilson’s “No penis shall pass!” line from How to be Single is offered up in the proceedings to remind you that friendly sex chats were had between movie friends this year. You’ve thought of everything, The Movies™!
