For those who don’t know, Sweding — popularized by Michel Gondry‘s “Be Kind Rewind” — means to remake your favorite movie (or the movie trailer) with your friends on a super low budget and using homemade special effects. And the results can be a lot of fun. It was an idea ahead of its time, predating the YouTube revolution by a couple of years. Now it’s a fairly common practice, with some cities even hosting sweded film festivals. There are countless examples across YouTube — it’s an easy way to kill an hour or two — and while not as en vogue as it once was, every now and then one pops up that’s worth checking out.
And so below is the sweded trailer for “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and it is a hoot to watch. It features plenty of clever effects, some spectacular homemade costumes, and a hilarious take on the soundtrack. Give it a watch. It will definitely perk up your day. [via Legion Of Leia]
