The line between parody and satire can get blurry sometimes, but when someone manages to get it exactly right, it's beautiful to behold. The key to a good mix is truth and humor, and the Auralnauts show they're masters of the game with this perfect take-down of movie trailers.

The Auralnauts promise that this helpful video below will "provide you with the winning formula that turns any trailer into the blockbuster smash hit of the season it was meant to be." And boy, do they deliver ...

Yet. Fingers crossed.

So, how many movies can you think of that follow this formula?
