How a gritty Archie reboot should look.

Right here: Riverdale.

My only criticism is that they overlooked the obvious: Dilton would clearly have synthesized picric acid from indigo salvaged from Veronica’s discarded last-season designer jeans and nitrates extracted from Jughead’s surplus jerky stash.

This is just terrific! One, it’s funny to portray Archie this way, and two, it made me laugh at the way film trailers work in general. And yes, I loved Archie comics as a kid.

There’s pretty much zero chance it won’t be a horrible abortion like Josie and the Pussycats or Scooby Doo,.

Amazing. I would totally see that.

This bit:

“I’m not like other guys”

“I know, that’s what I love about you”

  • is that a reference to Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ video (where those exact lines are spoken) or was ‘Thriller’ also referencing something made earlier? It could just be a coincidence.

There’s a 100% chance that it won’t be a horrible abortion like** Josie and the Pussycats **or Scooby Doo, because the project has wrapped already and you’ve seen it in its entirety. :stuck_out_tongue:

Besides, Josie and the Pussycats was a pretty good movie.

Noce how they covered most of the characters–even people like Mr. Lodge and Mr. Weatherbee. But where were Miss Grundy and Pop Tate?

Along similar but darker lines, here is Frank Miller’s Peanuts: Part 1, Part 2 (SFW).

This has always been, I figure, the gold standard for fan-made comic-book trailers: Grayson

I would *SO *go to see this movie, if only it were real! I read Archie comics well intill my adulthood (Hell, I still do on occasion!) Too bad it’s a parody.


Josie and the Pussycats was well-made self-satire. Nothin’ to complain about there.

The casting in this “trailer” is superb! Jughead, especially, looks exactly right. Of course, he has a very distinctive look - Archie is somewhat more generic, although still quite good. But Ethel, Moose, Dilton, and Mr. Lodge, all look very much like their characters, although they kinda missed with Mr. Weatherbee.

And, yes, Veronica and especially Betty looked very hot. I’d suggest having them both of them played by the same actress, though, just with different color wigs. But that would screw up that excellent final scene.

How long before Archie’s lawyers shut it down?

Or, if identical twins are cast, make it a hundred times better.

Needs more Cheryl Blossom.
