Here's What THE INCREDIBLES Would Have Looked Like Directed By Christopher Nolan

The Dark Knight Trilogy director Christopher Nolan has tackled a variety of genres, but not an animated feature (yet!). So, what would happen if the man behind Interstellar had helmed Disney and Pixar's The Incredibles? Well, this cleverly put together trailer reveals all...

Well, that actually looks...amazing! It's hard to imagine Christopher Nolan ever tackling an animated movie (though you never know), but if he does, make it a dark superhero family drama made by Pixar. It doesn't sound like a Marvel/Pixar collaboration will ever happen - more on that can be found by clicking here - but a Nolan/Pixar one sounds even better, especially if you thrown in Hans Zimmer on scoring duties. So, who wants to start the petition to get Nolan to helm The Incredibles 2? Check out the video above and share your thoughts below.

I still get chills when I hear Zimmer's score.

The creator of the video is named Bobby Burns. Here's some more his stuff:

The UP one is the greatest!
FordEl - 8/29/2014, 4:59 PM
Honestly its just a trailer with music from TDK. It matches well, I guess.
BatmanHeisenberg - 8/29/2014, 4:59 PM
THe Incredib;es somehow perfectly mixes Fantastic Four, X-Men AND Watchmen. One of the best CBM's ever. Can't wait for sequel.
Dingbat - 8/29/2014, 5:00 PM

That Up one is great!
staypuffed - 8/29/2014, 5:00 PM
It's been years since I watched it. How does it incorporate X-Men and Watchmen?
Grodd87 - 8/29/2014, 5:02 PM
Liked the up one the best
UltimateCookie - 8/29/2014, 5:02 PM
Hell for a animated movie Incredibles was kinda dark on its own.
Dandy - 8/29/2014, 5:02 PM
The Incredibles is SO GREAT!!!!! My second favorite Superhero movie of all time!
TheRationalNerd - 8/29/2014, 5:04 PM
Can I get a "HELL YEAH!!" For Incredibles 2 !!!
Dandy - 8/29/2014, 5:04 PM
The Shining recut is still the best one.

Starfox - 8/29/2014, 5:04 PM
oh C'mon dude... Give Brad Bird the credit he deserves.
MrDeadRabbit - 8/29/2014, 5:05 PM
Nolan is a great filmmaker of our times, I will concede that, I like a lot The presige and Inception, I theibk of those as hie masterworks.

But, as a ComicBookMovie Director he just is awful!!!

He just lacks the humor of James Gunn, the action/direction of Joss Whedon, the tecnical fight awesomeness of the Russos' bros, the joy of John Favreau, he is a great movie maker but just NOT a great comic book Movie maker.

The great thing is he is not doing any more CBM's
Dandy - 8/29/2014, 5:07 PM

I'll give you ehhhhhhhhhh for Incredibles 2.

It's already been announced by Pixar but Brad Bird isn't attached to direct and personally I would rather see Pixar go back to doing great original movies rather than a bunch of mediocre sequels/prequels.
AlexanderLykins - 8/29/2014, 5:09 PM
I find your lack of MCU news disturbing.
McGee - 8/29/2014, 5:09 PM
I showed my little 7 year old cousin that Shining trailer a few years back. I was told later on that she was crying while actually watching the movie. :D
jasonicus - 8/29/2014, 5:10 PM
They forgot to add all of the gaping plotholes.
Dandy - 8/29/2014, 5:10 PM
Or instead of a Shining comedy, how about a MICHAEL BAY'S UP!!!!

You know you want it!
BatmanHeisenberg - 8/29/2014, 5:11 PM
@staypuffed & @MarkyMark

Every superhero is born with the powers, like mutants. Also, the exclusion of them is like Watchmen and X-Men. Also, there were LAWS put in place to end superheroes, like Watchmen!
Jollem - 8/29/2014, 5:11 PM
@Dingbat - there's another one of bay's shawshank redemption by the same guy but it's not as good
DrunkenNukem - 8/29/2014, 5:14 PM
Hey why don't we make a video using a bunch of radom scenes from the incredibles, with Zimmer's theme from TDK and Syndrome's voice in the background and call it "Here's What THE INCREDIBLES Would Have Looked Like Directed By Christopher Nolan"....just because we can...

MrDeadRabbit - 8/29/2014, 5:14 PM
@MarkyMark I think that @BatManHeisenberg means with his comparison this:

Similiarities between The incredibles and Watchmen (the comic more than the movie):

-They live in a world where superheores are restricted orsimply not accepeted anymore
-Mr Incredible was in a bad situation that puts him as a not reliable super hero and public eyes made him dissapear, the same with The Comedian
-The Heroes are being killed in both incredibles and watchmen
-A former hero turns out to be the main baddie

I bet I am letting one or two more escape my mind right now
Jollem - 8/29/2014, 5:15 PM
MrDeadRabbit - 8/29/2014, 5:16 PM

hey mate, my explanation is more or less the same you have of The incredibles incorporating a lot of Watchmen plot points?
Neonzel - 8/29/2014, 5:16 PM
Pixar's MOS

MrDeadRabbit - 8/29/2014, 5:17 PM
hey @Jollem

how yo doing man?
MrDeadRabbit - 8/29/2014, 5:18 PM
By the way I would love a The Incredibles / Big Hero Six crossover

That would make it an instantd blockbuster beyond my wildest dreams : D

DrunkenNukem - 8/29/2014, 5:20 PM
comparing Watchmen with The Incredibles?...really?
FearTheLiving - 8/29/2014, 5:22 PM
Too much color.
Jollem - 8/29/2014, 5:22 PM
@DaneMendieta - hey, howzitgoin'? waiting for Destiny to come out. then i'll be in hermit mode
GiantNerd - 8/29/2014, 5:23 PM
The action is way too good to be a Nolan movie.
