Coming Soon: Citizen Kane

Orson Welles just couldn’t leave well enough alone. Not only did he make the Greatest Movie of All Time™, he made a terrific trailer to go with it. This pulls off the classic trick, so rarely done, of making us feel we know everything but giving away absolutely nothing. (The shot of the boom mike coming our way was later used in The Magnificent Ambersons.)

Of course, such an achievement can’t not be held up for mockery. Here’s someone reimagining Kane as a trannie comedy.

Better yet, Kane as the #1 playa in da hood (tip o’ the blog to Rooktopia).
