Austin Powers modern movie parody trailer

Posted on

Spy movies are more likely to be gritty than gag-filled these days — just look at Daniel Craig’s James Bond films, or the action-packed upcoming installment in the Jason Bourne franchise. Now, Austin Powers is joining those broody ranks. Sort of.

A new parody trailer recuts scenes from Mike Myers’ trilogy of Austin Powers films to make them more serious and less like the send-ups of campy spy movies they are. That means a lot less “Yeah, baby!” and more ominous music and dramatic title cards instead.
