I’ve mentioned before how I thought Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest was a little too close to Matrix Reloaded for my taste, and now that I’ve seen the trailer for PotC: At World’s End, I’m even more convinced that this will be the Yeargh! version of Revolutions. To illustrate, here’s my (admittedly slapdash) mash-up of the Revolutions and At World’s End trailers.
Allow me to present to you Pirates of the Matrix: Revolutions at World’s End and it’s companion piece, Matrix of the Caribbean, which syncs the audio from Revolutions to the World’s End trailer, and vice versa. I did absolutely no editing to the video beyond swapping the audio, so it’s not a perfect sync. Rather than it being a matter of taking the time to cut the trailers appropriately, I thought it best to just highlight how similar they are with no re-cutting.
To be fair, I adored the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and it was certainly better than any film based off an effin’ RIDE had a right to be. Of course, I also adored the first Matrix. See a theme here?
