There’s a severe lack of films with female protagonists. It’s a simple and upsetting fact that needs to be changed. Recently, Disney and LucasFilm have been taking massive steps with “The Force Awakens” showcasing the talents of lead actress Daisy Ridley and “Rogue One” set to star Felicity Jones. And it seems like another group of filmmakers have joined the charge.
Toni-Marie Gallardo and Andrea Lee Christensen of YouTube channel Supertramp Co. launched a new web series called “Full Movie Here,” which takes famous movies starring men and places women in the leading roles. But that’s not all. Each entry will not only change the gender of the protagonist, but will also wipe the slate clean, changing the story, characters and genre as well — partly because the writers haven’t seen them.
Rather than taking a jab at the films they’re basing the episodes off of, “Full Movie Here” plans to, per their Indiegogo page in efforts to fund future episodes, “create a platform where we can put women at the forefront in interesting and unexpected ways.” For their first episode, the two made “There Will Be Blood,” a film about a vampire that finds out the party she’s at is BYOB — bring your own blood — and not a spread of necks. Gallardo served as the director and Christensen served as the writer on “Full Movie Here’s” comedic take on the Paul Thomas Anderson film. Check out the episode below.
For their next entries, FMH plans to put out “The Wolf of Wall Street” as “a campy horror film about a sexually frustrated werewolf” and “Finding Nemo” as a film “about the struggles of growing up in a Kardashian-like family.”
