Ultimate Proof that Every Movie is Better With Bears

Bears! They're like mythical fantasy creatures, except that they really exist. And they make everything better. Case in point: Brave, which comes out this weekend, features bears in an important role, which we won't give away here.

But really, why doesn't every science fiction and fantasy movie have bears in it? This ursine presence would automatically boost any movie's "wow factor" by at least 20 percent. To prove it, we asked artist John Pedigo to improve some movie posters... with incredible results. Bear with us here.

Because space is not the final frontier. Plus, it doesn't matter how much you change the timeline — bears will always be bears. Also, little known fact: Bears eat Red Matter. It's like honey to them.
