If you've ever questioned what the iconic comedy Monty Python and The Holy Grail would look like as a serious drama, we've got an answer for you.
Check out the surprisingly instense and historical-looking recut trailer for Monty Python and The Holy Grail below:
Cinefix, the creators responsible for this recut masterpiece explained their reasoning behind the dramatic trailer:
"With the upcoming movie 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' coming in 2017, we wondered if it might be better to just recut 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' as a crazy intense drama. So we did!"
The original 1975 film, from comedic ledgends Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones is "a comedic send-up of the grim circumstances of the Middle Ages as told through the story of King Arthur and framed by a modern-day murder investigation.
When the mythical king of the Britons leads his knights on a quest for the Holy Grail, they face a wide array of horrors, including a persistent Black Knight, a three-headed giant, a cadre of shrubbery-challenged knights, the perilous Castle Anthrax, a killer rabbit, a house of virgins, and a handful of rude Frenchmen."
However, this trailer shows us that with adding some adventerous music and focusing on the right one-liners Monty Python and The Holy Grail could easily be mistaken for a dramatic period piece.
