While there are many who will swear that Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon was intentionally designed to sync up perfectly with "The Wizard of Oz," sometimes there are just happy coincidences. And that's what you could probably call this intriguing re-edit of the bank robbery sequence that opens Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight."

While there are many who will swear that Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon was intentionally designed to sync up perfectly with "The Wizard of Oz," sometimes there are just happy coincidences. And that's what you could probably call this intriguing re-edit of the bank robbery sequence that opens Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight."

Some dude on YouTube was futzing around with editing movie trailers when he dropped Bernard Hermann's stone cold classic score for "Vertigo" over top Nolan's film and the result is interesting. Granted, the wall-to-wall score doesn't always work effectively for the scene, but there are more interesting moments that seem to line up perfectly between sound and vision, and the latter part of the sequence in particular does very well under Hermann's work. Maybe it served as a temp score? Who knows, but give it a whirl below. [Disassociated]
