These examples of iconic movie art take beloved characters and scenes and turn them into something new.

Using already popular images, artists mix up and reinvent classic shots and scenes and make them more interesting, more shocking and more unforgettable. From American Beauty to Star Wars, many cult classics have been the source of inspiration for artists. Though it's relatively easy to find an audience for this kind of work, recreating iconic scenes is dangerous as it may offend those who prefer the original. Whether you like older movies or favor more contemporary work like that of Wes Anderson, there's a film re-creation to suit your tastes.

Though a bit daring, these artsy creations are sure to please those who love the silver screen.
