Also known as recut trailers, involve collecting multiple pieces of film footage from one or multiple movies and editing them to create a new trailer. Trailer mashups are often created for a movie that does not exist now or to change the genre of an existing film.
These are derivative works as defined by the United States Copyright Act 17 U.S.C. § 101, and as such, may find protection from copyright claims under the doctrine of fair use.
The trailer mashups are not only a user generated form of digital creativity but a way to create anticipation for future releases, working in tandem with current movie trailers. Movie trailers are designed to give minimal plot detail and to create hype and anticipation.
Fan made trailer mashups allow the audience to perform their own cinematic spin on current movie footage. This allows the trailer to focus on a specific actor or portion of the film. It could even change the plot or genre of the film entirely.
Revenge can’t be contained in just three movies, so that means a John Wick 4 is officially on the way. One of the best wholly original movie series of the 2010s, the John Wick franchise has succeeded thanks to a mix of intensely choreographed action and ever-deepening alt-world building.
The cast of John Wick 4 is already brimming with talent, some new, some returning. Keanu Reeves will of course return as Wick, while Laurence Fishburne is back as The Bowery King, Ian McShane returns as Winston, and Lance Reddick reprises his role of Charon, concierge at The Continental hotel.
Japanese-British pop star Rina Sawayama will play a new character called Akira, while martial arts movie legends Donnie Yen and Scott Adkins have joined in undisclosed roles.
Alita: Battle Angel’s Marko Zaror is set to play John Wick 4’s primary villain, while Mortal Kombat 2021’s Hiroyuki Sanada, Wynonna Earp’s Shamier Anderson, IT’s Bill Skarsgard, and prolific character actor Clancy Brown are also playing unknown roles.
Chapter 4 was originally inteded to shoot back to back with Chapter 5 but Lionsgate dropped those plans in March 2021.
