The Monty Python Trailer Reboots Holy Grail for a Modern Audience

This fake Monty Python trailer is a reboot of the satirical cult classic ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail.’ The movie preview does not add any new footage, but rather edits original scenes in a much more dramatic fashion. With an epic soundtrack and subtitled narration, the films become a darker and less funny cinematic masterpiece.

The original film was released in 1975 and is often cited as an example for dry, British humor. While the tone of the Monty Python trailer is certainly far off from what the original intended, fans of the goofy movie will certainly enjoy this take. YouTube user Stéphane Bouley describes the clip as what Holy Grail would be like if it were released in 2013. Lines formerly seen as absurd and hilarious become tragic and full of meaning.
