Trailer Mashup: Up Meets Gran Torino

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a good trailer remix or mashup, but this one qualifies. It mixes the dialogue from Clint Eastwood’s ode to elderly ass-kicking, Gran Torino, with the visuals from Pixar’s paean to late-life adventure, Up. When you get down to it, Eastwood’s Walt is pretty similar to Up’s Carl: old, bitter, and initially resentful of the young people around them. They both prove that despite their advancing age they are still capable of tremendous actions. And they both just want people to get off their lawn. Check out the mashup, though if you haven’t seen the movies you may not quite get it:
