I am Adam, Prince of Eternia

Fan made Masters of the Universe trailer (video above) starring Brad Pitt as He-Man/Prince Adam will make you laugh. Here's another trailer (less funny but much more awesome) to whet your appetite for the new He-Man movie which I heard is going to be awesome. I just hope they choose the right guy to play He-Man/Adam. From The Geek Files:
A script has now been completed and one sneak preview of the screenplay has called it a "fanboy masterpiece" in which "Lord of the Rings meets Matrix and a little Batman Begins thrown in for good measure."

Marks also co-wrote the screenplay for the exciting superhero movie project Green Arrow: Escape from Supermax. His live-action adaptation of He-Man is titled Grayskull: The Masters of the Universe.

Information on Marks' first draft came out from movie site Latino Review but has gone largely under the radar, perhaps because it is at such an early stage with no director or actors attached to the project.

In the story, Prince Adam of Eternia is able to transform into the superstrong He-Man by raising his sword; at the same time, his cowardly tiger Cringer becomes Battle Cat. They and several companions defend Castle Grayskull from the evil sorcerer Skeletor.
Update: Here's the Grayskull: Masters Of The Universe script review. (Thanks GeekGod)
