Schofield soon realized that he was not alone. A small group of moviegoers and artists are harnessing the power of generative AI tools to reimagine classic movies or create entirely new ones from the world’s most famous cinematic classics. In December, creator Johnny Darrell Jodorowsky’s Tron, reimagines the classic film before the eyes of avant-garde filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky.Inspired by Darrell of Tacoma, Washington, Nine Inch His Nails former art his director Rob Sheridan uses AI to Jodorowsky’s Frasier.
Sheridan, 42, calls this AI-enabled movement “The New Unreal.”Practitioners include New Zealand-based illustrators Creating a Western space with Instagram Sculptor from Austin, Texas.

“We’re starting to see this technology as a dream engine,” says Sheridan. They feel so plausible that they attack you in strange ways.
Scofield said he doesn’t know why the Cronenberg rework went up in flames so quickly. He had previously posted multiple experiments on Imgur, Reddit, and Twitter, all of which he only got between 50 and 100 likes. “I never intended to create clickbait, but I think it became clickbait,” he said. “A lot of people reposted it and said, This is terrible. This guy doesn’t understand Cronenberg at all.Every time they did it, it spread more and sparked another wave of criticism, which sparked another, and another, and another.
Schoefield said the text of his tweet — simply “David Cronenberg’s Galaxy of Flesh (1985)” — may have given the false impression that he was trying to fool Twitter. “There is no real intention behind this title. oh this looks like it“But it really seemed to piss people off, and I think someone like Cronenberg is probably famous enough to have a fanbase.”
“A lot of people have opinions about what Cronenberg’s aesthetic is,” he continued, “what a poor interpretation of his style.” I am afraid that they think that I am trying to reduce to
The frames themselves were generated by giving Midjourney prompts for “DVD screen grabs” of various scenes from the film. empire strikes back. “And then it looked like this: Everything made of skin and joints, tendons, nerves, umbilical cords, stomachs and arteriesadded Schoefield.
Like getting the Cronenberg style, it was hard to get the image generator to create gore. “You can’t even type ‘Cronenberg’ into Midjourney,” he says Schofield. (Sheridan thinks this is his fault. He created a series of Cronenberg-inspired images for his Met gala in May. Shortly after, the term “Cronenberg” was banned from the tool.)
