Watch 'Ant-Man' reimagined as a 1950s-era monster movie

With the release of "Ant-Man" later in July, Louis "Sleepy Skunk" Plamondon and Vulture have teamed up to release a "trailer" for the Marvel film in classic monster-movie style.

What would "Ant-Man" look like as a 1950s-era horror monster movie instead of the flashy, big-budget Marvel production set to come out later this month?

A new parody trailer by YouTube filmmaker Louis "Sleepy Skunk" Plamondon and Vulture's New York Magazine posted to YouTube on Monday attempts to answer that question with a little help from the late, great Vincent Price. The trailer has more of the feel of the actor's classics such as "House of Wax" and "The Fly" than Marvel's modern hits like "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Guardians of the Galaxy."

The clip uses footage from several films, including "House on Haunted Hill," "The Incredible Shrinking Man" and "Them!" combined with black-and-white scenes from the actual trailers for Marvel's 2015 "Ant-Man" flick, to create a compelling and convincing retro trailer for the film.
