Sphynx On The Silver Screen: Man Casts His Cat As The Lead In 35+ Movies And TV Shows
Giancarlo (@sphynx_flix on Instagram), an architect from Peru who now resides in the United States, has a remarkable talent as a self-taught Photoshop artist. In April 2019, he embarked on a unique creative endeavor—crafting movie poster parodies featuring hairless cats as the stars. Each artwork typically demands between 30 minutes to an hour of his time to complete. That is mind-blowing!
With a passion for this unconventional art form, Giancarlo has produced a collection of edits that showcase his ingenuity and humor. He eagerly shares these creations, hoping that others will derive joy and amusement from them as well. Today, we have prepared a collection of those intriguing creations to share with you. If you are interested, you should definitely continue scrolling! Enjoy!
The Lord of the Mice
Despite it being more than 20 years old, The Lord of the Rings series is still watched, rewatched, and loved by many. This movie poster parody with a hairless cat is an absolute purrfection! Giancarlo, the brilliant self-taught Photoshop artist, works his magic.
This time, he reimagines a famous blockbuster with an amusing twist: a hairless sphynx cat takes center stage as the fearless antihero, Smeagol, surrounded by a dark background. The attention to detail and clever composition is fascinating and so amusing.
Casablanca is a timeless classic that has left an indelible mark on cinema history. Released in 1942, it is a romantic drama set during World War II. It has become synonymous with cinematic excellence and remains an iconic piece of filmmaking.
The artist takes an interesting turn and makes his sphynx cat the main character. Now, the movie has to be named Catablanca—it is only fitting. He didn’t stop there. The cat has got a pearl necklace and a full bottle of milk. Yum!
Stranger Things is a popular television series that first premiered in 2016. Set in the 1980s, the show pays homage to the nostalgic era of sci-fi and horror films. It follows a group of young friends in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, as they encounter supernatural mysteries and government conspiracies.
Although Stranger Things has a very captivating plot, actors, and mysteries, Stranger Sphynx might be the next best thing! With this extremely eye-catching TV show poster, it will certainly attract a big audience. Who wants to binge it with us?!
The Silence of the Cats
The Silence of the Lambs is renowned for its intense atmosphere, suspenseful storytelling, and iconic performances. The film delves into the psychological cat-and-mouse game between Clarice Starling and Hannibal Lecter. This is very fitting, considering Giancarlo’s whole spiel is CATS!
We have never heard of a silent cat, but it sure sounds terrifying. Cat got your tongue, little one? Well, it will now after you watch this psychological rollercoaster. Sphynx cats are much scarier than Hannibal Lecter, don’t you think?
We all know Casper as a friendly ghost that loves to cause some harmless and humorous mischief. Casper, the movie, combines comedy, adventure, and a touch of sentimentality to create an enchanting tale that resonates with audiences of all ages.
If Casper was, instead, a Catsper, this is how it would look like: it would follow the adventures of a smart, silly kitty who resides in a haunted cat mansion alongside his mischievous ghost feline companions. It would be so chaotic. We love it already!
If The Sopranos featured a sphynx cat as a central character, it would add a unique and intriguing element to the already gripping drama. This hairless feline, let’s call him “Donny the Sphinx,” would become an unlikely confidant and observer of the mob world.
The kitty would silently witness the secrets and power struggles within the mafia family, occasionally offering sage-like advice through his enigmatic gaze. Despite his lack of fur, Donny the Sphinx would be extremely respected (it’s the claws, we tell you)…
Picture a hairless feline named “Rhythm” who becomes an unexpected yet beloved main character in the spin-off of the original Dirty Dancing. It would be super iconic and captivating. We can tell just by the movie poster how amazing the film would be.
Since cats are extremely unpredictable, the presence of a sphynx cat would bring an element of joy, unpredictability, and an extra dose of fun that Dirty Dancing doesn’t need but certainly will benefit from. Though, we expect those dance moves to be a little more lively in Dirty Pouncing.
Mama always said, “Life is like a box of cats. You don’t know how many you’ll get.” Wait, that’s not how it goes, but, for some reason, that is how we are suddenly remembering it. It must be because we watched this new movie…
Although the original is quite memorable and delightful, this feline adaptation would bring a mix of humor, heart, and inspiration, reminding us that the most extraordinary journeys can be undertaken by even the most unexpected heroes. We can feel that cat’s sense of wonder by the picture alone.
Al Paw Cino Scratchface
If Al Pacino’s iconic character, Tony Montana from Scarface, were reimagined as a cat, it would create a comical and intriguing twist on the infamous gangster story. Imagine a charismatic feline named “Tony Meowtana,” who struts around with an air of confidence and an insatiable appetite for power and catnip.
Tony Meowtana would maintain the same larger-than-life personality, filled with feline swagger and a quick tongue (or rather, quick scratches). He would command respect from his fellow feline gang members, ruling over a catnip empire with his claws sharp and his wits sharper!
Picture a spaceship run by fearless felines, valiantly defending their human counterparts against the relentless alien threat stalking them out in the cold depths of space. If you ask us, that is something that the movie industry needs to get on. Like, right now.
These resourceful feline heroes would navigate the dark corridors of the spaceship, pouncing on the alien intruder and engaging in thrilling cat-and-mouse chases. What a time to be alive that would be! We just hope Ellen Ripley likes hairless cats!
Famous Sylvester Stallone plays the iconic role of Rocky Balboa, a down-on-his-luck amateur boxer from Philadelphia. Rocky is a popular sports drama released in 1976. For decades now, it has shaped the childhoods and lives of many with its classic underdog tale.
Imagine now, that instead of a tall, broad, muscular Silvester Stalone, the main character is a bald, boney, skinny sphynx cat. It takes you aback at first; however, it’s phenomenal when you think of it. What is scarier and more intimidating than a cat without fur?!
Step Brothers is a hilarious comedy film. It follows the hilarious misadventures of two middle-aged men who become stepbrothers as adults when their single parents get married. Will Ferrell’s and John C. Reilly’s performances are top-notch. Now, imagine them as cats!
These feline stepbrothers would engage in playful rivalry, swatting at each other’s tails and engaging in comical wrestling matches. They would still retain their mischievous nature, of course, often causing havoc around the house and getting into humorous predicaments that delight audiences everywhere.
Based on the novel Q & A by Vikas Swarup, Slumdog Millionaire is a critically acclaimed drama film released in 2008. It features a young man from the slums who participates in the Indian version of the game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
Imagine if Jamal was a cat all along! His name would be Jamal Meowlik, a scrappy and street-smart feline navigating the alleys and rooftops of Mumbai. Throughout his journey, Jamal Meowlik would rely on his quick reflexes, agility, and cleverness to outsmart the various feline adversaries and human obstacles he encounters. What a movie!
The Pursuit of Rodentss
