Ever wonder what Breaking Bad would look like if it had been created 20 years ago? Or have a sneaking suspicion that Up and Gran Torino are secretly the same movie?

Since these seem like the perfect issues to tackle on the Friday before a long weekend, we found 15 movie and TV trailers reworked into completely different genres. I'm surprised at how many of them I would watch. You might be too.

1. Breaking Bad as a 1995 dramedy

2. Harry Potter as a Wes Anderson Film

I would watch the crap out of this movie.

3. Up as Gran Torino

4. Shawshank Redemption as a romantic comedy

5. Forrest Gump as a horror movie

6. Forrest Gump as a gangster movie

Another nicely-done AMC promotion for “Forrest Gump Week.”

7. IT as a feel-good family flick

This... might actually be scarier than the original.

8. Mrs. Doubtfire as a horror movie

9. The Exorcist as a sitcom

10. Titanic as a feel-good comedy

11. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a horror movie

Let’s be honest—this one isn’t too much of a stretch, is it?

12. The Shining as Seinfeld

13. Game of Thrones as Seinfeld

14. Jaws as a Disney movie

15. Home Alone as a horror movie
