What If Wes Anderson Directed An X-Men Movie? Watch Now!

Patrick Willems should be contacted immediately if Wes Anderson needs a new cinematographer. The man published a love letter to what seems like it would be bitterly opposite film worlds with one fantastic video.

Willems wondered what would happen if Wes Anderson directed an X-Men movie! 

The “trailer” is below and it is fantastic. We get Willems’ own version of “Magneto,” “Professor X” and even “Wolverine.” For fans of both The Grand Budapest Hotel filmmaker and the Marvel comic book/movie series, prepare to marvel at this guy’s talent.

Watch X-Men online and be sure to watch The Grand Budapest Hotel online and it’s easy to see that his take on what would happen if Anderson helmed an X-Men movie is nothing short of sublimely perfect.

Willems gets Anderson’s look, feel and even his quirky characters thrust in the most unusual of plot situations mojo that has fueled his filmmaking since Bottle Rocket.

Anderson is one of those directors who we would watch anything he does. Who else is on that list?

X-Men Quotes

Wolverine: Magneto's right: there is a war coming. Are you sure you're on the right side?
Storm: At least I've chosen a side.

Are you a God-fearing man, Senator? That is such a strange phrase. I've always thought of God as a teacher; a bringer of light, wisdom, and understanding. You see, I think what you really fear is me. Me and my kind. The Brotherhood of Mutants. Oh, it's not so surprising really. Mankind has always feared what it doesn't understand. Well, don't fear God, Senator, and certainly don't fear me. Not any more.
