Gallery: Movies from an Alternate Universe

Imagine what Drive would have looked like if it had been shot back in the ’50s, with a young James Dean replacing Ryan Gosling. How about a black and white version of The Hangover, recast with members of the Rat Pack? Or Trainspotting as a new wave masterpiece by Jean-Luc Godard? No, we’re not describing the results of a movie geek party game; we’re giving you the gist of an ongoing series by illustrator Peter Stults, which we just spotted over on The Daily What. Some of the resulting posters are more successfully executed than others, but they’re all pretty entertaining. Click through for a slideshow of our favorites from the series.
