Because everyone wants to live in a world that's symmetrical and whimsical, save for some emotional discomfort and the occasional cartoon violence, filmmaker Patrick Willems has given the Wes Anderson treatment to the world of X-Men. (Which is, if you take away the laser vision and retractable claws and stuff, actually a heartwarming tale about a band of misfit students.)

There is harpsichord music, normcore costumes, and a bunch of running in straight lines, so you know he did a proper job of it. Watch Willems' interpretation of Anderson's (imagined) interpretation of Marvel Comics' original story right here.
