An old folks home brilliantly recreated movie posters for their 2015 calendar

We need more of this.

JUST WHEN YOU thought the novelty calendar had been done to death, along comes this retirement home to remind you just how good they can be when original.

The calendar was posted to Reddit last night, and the album is already pushing up to a million views. It shows the residents of a UK retirement home recreating classic movies, and it’s excellent.

They started off big – with this tribute to Star Wars

April was Singin’ In The Rain – and the Photoshop job is spot on

This classic Tarantino caper was June’s pick

06 - q4PQLTX

Harry Potter has never been this surreal

09 - cgFWR0m

Perhaps the pick of the bunch, October’s shoot absolutely nailed the Hitchcock classic

Any list of classic movie homages would not be complete without this

You can even buy the calendar in full here – so on top of it going viral, they might actually make some money for their retirement village while they are at it.

They absolutely nailed it, in fairness.
