Three "Fake" Trailers

by Steven Boone

1. Teaser for Chungking Express.
A short celebration of Wong Kar-wai's ageless gem, with assist from the Beach Boys.


2. Trailer for Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia.
If I were a trailer editor for United Artists in 1974, um, my promo for Sam Peckinpah's masterpiece might look something like this. The music is Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saëns.


3. Trailer for Bullet in the Head.
Arguably action director John Woo's worst film, Bullet in the Head nevertheless makes amazing trailer/montage fodder. Good music helps: Here it's Roland Kirk's cover of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On?"
