By now you’ve probably seen the fan-edited John Carter trailer that’s taken the Internet by storm. Most critics are calling it “better than the real trailer” and marveling at the thing as though it’s actually difficult to tell a story better than a huge Hollywood studio can. But apparently, it isn’t that hard — people on the Internet do it every day! After the jump, we’ll look at some of the best fan-made and fan-edited videos out there. If you like something we haven’t listed, be sure to mention it in the comments!
John Carter trailer (2012)
Unlike the two trailers already out, this video actually explains who John Carter is (the technically fictitious uncle of Edgar Rice Burroughs, which is a nice nod to the author who penned the series) and where he is (Mars) and what he is doing (kicking ass and taking names). Considering that Disney hasn’t been able to garner a whole lot of attention for the film, this is sure to do the job for them. Seriously, they should pay this guy.
