X-Men

The Internet is full of videos related to movies, whether they be fan made, studio made, or somewhere inbetween. We regularly bring you the best, most interesting, or just plain weirdest, and today we do it again. Check out the latest viral videos after the break.

Funny or Die got Billy Crystal to reprise his role as Harry for a When Harry Met Sally sequel spoof that has a modern twist ending.

A popular viral video making the rounds in the last day or so is a fan made opening sequence to X-Men: First Class. Since the film is set in the 1960s, video creator Joe D! made the opening credits in the style of those times.

You may think that video mash-ups are purely from the Internet age, but writer/director Edgar Wright was doing them way back in 1993 with VHS tapes! Check out one of his creations, called “Gun Fetish”, below. [via /Film]




There’s been a trend lately of studios making an animated prologues for their films (see: Sucker Punch). Priest continues that trend with a video that can be found on theater standees using a Microsoft Tag Reader. [via Bleeding Cool]




That’s it for this edition of Viral Video Round Up. If you have a video that you think we should feature, let us know in the comments below!
