The Walking Dead Zombie Kill Supercut
With just two days left until Season 6 of The Walking Dead premieres, Fast Company has put together a supercut of the most inventive zombie kills throughout the show's first five seasons. While it doesn't exactly serve as a recap of the ongoing story, it does provide a refresher course for your favorite zombie kills, in a quick two-minute video.
Keanu Reeves and Jimmy Kimmel Offer a Speed Spoof
Keanu Reeves dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week to promote his new thriller Knock, Knock, and the actor had a little fun with the talk show host, as they teamed up to spoof his 1994 classic Speed. The parody, entitled A Reasonable Speed, features a shady deal gone bad, that turns into a hilarious super-slow speed chase through the streets of Hollywood.
Avengers: Age of Ultron and Big Hero 6 Mashup
Zenlike Productions has put together a wonderful mashup of Avengers: Age of Ultron and Big Hero 6 that presents Baymax as an Ultron-esque villain. While the footage itself is all from Big Hero 6, the audio is from the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, and, with some clever editing, you can check out Big Hero 6 in a way you've never seen before.
How Ant-Man Should Have Ended
The mad geniuses at How It Should Have Ended are back with a new installment that simplifies the plot of Ant-Man. This hilarious video shows how a number of unnecessary steps could have been avoided, breaking down the main plot in just a few minutes. For some reason, the video ends with Hank Pym, Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne all chatting about their adventures with Batman and Superman, with a hilarious ending you probably won't see coming.
Star Wars Fan Theories
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens hitting theaters in just a few short months, fans around the world will likely be revisiting the first six Star Wars movies. Before you start your own movie marathon, the fine folks at Dorkly have put together an intriguing video that breaks down five Star Wars fan theories from the first six movies. Some of these interesting theories include Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) as a secret Sith, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) actually using the Force and more.
Conan Introduces the Michael Dell Biopic
With Steve Jobs hitting theaters in limited release this weekend, before its nationwide expansion on October 23, Conan has put together a humorous parody that explores another prominent figure in the tech world, Dell CEO Michael Dell. The video pokes fun at Dell's brand, their thrifty ways and lack of innovation in what would surely be a horrible biopic.
