Every as the calendar page turns over from December to January, talented video editor Sleepy Skunk on YouTube (real name: Louis Plamondon) releases a stunning mashup compilation of the best movie trailers released during that calendar year.
This year, however, in addition to his annual movie trailer compilation, Sleepy Skunk also put together one of the most epic movie trailer mashup videos ever created as he seamlessly spliced together the best bits from movie trailers for the entire decade of the 2010s.
That’s right. Somehow Plamondon managed to string together a decade’s worth of movie trailer scenes in one 7 minute, 46 second video that’s so impressive and immersive that when you watch it almost flies by like the snap of a finger.
According to Plamondon, here’s how he edits and gets such clear dialogue for his annual compilation videos…
“For clean dialogue, watch all the TV spots for a movie’s campaign, many of which are on YouTube. You’ll be surprised how much clean dialogue you’ll find there,” he wrote on Tumblr. “You can also get 5.1 audio splits on websites like The Digital Theater. I cannot get all the lines I wish for, sometimes they are drowned in music. I tried to use ‘What kind of coward hides behind a mask?’ from Joker this year but couldn’t get a clean pass.”
From Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to Little Women with films like Avengers: Endgame, Baby Driver, Battle: Los Angeles, Before Midnight, The Big Sick, Black Panther, Black Swan, Crazy Rich Asians, Coco, Drive, The Florida Project, Ghost in the Shell, Her, Inception, Jack the Giant Slayer, John Wick, Jojo Rabbit, Life As We Know It, Mad Max: Fury Road, Okja, Riddick, Safe House, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Sicario, Skyfall, The Social Network, Thor: Ragnarok, Tree of Life, Young Adult, Zootopia, and dozens more in between, Sleepy Skunk has created a time capsule of film that will not only bring back a lot of memories, it also reminds us that there are probably still a whole bunch of movies we need to watch at some point in 2020.
Here’s his 2019 movie trailer mashup. A full list of each movie featured in the video can be viewed here.
