Now that I’ve seen Watchmen and realized it made a better trailer than movie, it makes me appreciate this hilarious clip even more. Someone has taken the very essence of the kick-ass Watchmen trailers (that’d be the super-serious tone, the occasional slow-mo shot, and Smashing Pumpkins’ “The End Is the Beginning Is the End”) as the basis for a trailer to our beloved Wall-E. Seeing Eve survey the fire and destruction is almost downright chilling! Bonus points to the pan-out shot near the end, and the lifting of the trademark yellow font.

The Watchmen and Wall-E mashup:
