In the trailer remix tradition of ‘The Shining’ as inspirational family dramedy and ‘Back to the Future’ as tense gay love story, editor Nick Divers has recut scenes from Tom Hanks comedy ‘Splash’ into a taut political thriller.

A few rearranged scenes and an ominous score turn the light 1984 romance about a mermaid (Daryl Hannah) trying to make her way around New York City into a tale of espionage, deceit and Eugene Levy threatening to start a nuclear war.
