Scott Campbell's Illustrated Movie Battles Unite Enemies

Scott Campbell’s ‘Great Showdowns’ are illustrations of famous TV and movie battles turned adorable.

Instead of a tense showdown between enemies, the opposing sides are drawn side by side, smiling at one another. The series shows a wide range of films, that may not have outright physical fights, but definitely two opposing sides in some sort of argument. The movie battles depicted in Campbell’s series range from Jesse and Celine vs. the setting sun from ‘Before Midnight,’ the good vs. evil sides in ‘Lord of the Rings’ and even Walter White and Jesse Pinkman standing atop a mountain amidst the entire cast of characters on ‘Breaking Bad.’

These illustrations turn protagonists and antagonists into best buddies so cute it’s hard to imagine that they were ever even rivals at all. Stats for Adorably Amicable Standoff Illustrations Trending: This Year & Mild
