“A brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel, and a recluse—before this day is over they’ll break the rules, bare their souls, take some chances, and touch each other in a way they never dreamed possible.”
We all know what movie that tagline comes from. But when you add in the element of these five students being able to perform actual magic, they’ll form a slightly different kind of club. That’s right, it’s The Hogwarts Club.
This week’s installment of Trailer Mix from Mashable Watercooler (which gives popular movies a new spin by cutting a trailer in a different genre or in the style of another film), combines the magical world of J.K. Rowling‘s Harry Potter and the teen angst-filled world of John Hughes‘ The Breakfast Club.
The brain here is obviously Hermione, with Ron the ginger beauty, Harry as the Quidditch champion jock, Draco as the rebel, and who else but Luna as the recluse.
You can compare this trailer mashup with the original one for The Breakfast Club from 1985.
Considering the massive amount of damage Harry and his cohorts managed to cause to Hogwarts in seven years, matching them up with the five Saturday detention recipients who somehow managed to break everything in one day—including a ceiling vent, and glass door via screaming—this makes a lot of sense.
Also, if they wanted to remake The Breakfast Club, putting it in Hogwarts would be kind of awesome. The only real question is: Whose detention would be worse? Principal Vernon’s or Professor Snape’s?
