We should expand this thread and let it live like the crosstime sweeper, instead of letting it die like the alternate video games thread. I suggest that we hold nominations for the best proposed movies in this thread a few weeks from now.

We should try to standardize things a bit, like label the films’ genre. However, I don’t know if everyone is able to suggest alternate actors and actresses (I can’t do anything like that).

India Johnny and the Raiders of the Lost Ark: (ADVENTURE) The box-office hit motion picture about archaeologist and adventurer India Johnny’s search for the Anti-Reich Knight, a mythical weapon that has powers to fight Hitler’s hordes. Accompanied by his Sufi sidekick, Hajj, Johnny is in a race against the neo-colonialist pig-dog British aggressors, who seek to destroy the Nazis so they could retake India and invade the East. Along the way they fight SS agents, giant monsters, magical creatures, find love, and do a musical dance number.
