Iconic Sci-Fi Movie Images with More Thumbs, Less Guns

A great new blog called Thumbs and Ammo has taken on the challenge of removing guns from the hands of action stars and replacing them with a big thumbs-up! From The Matrix to Star Wars to Looper to Star Trek, the results are totally hilarious and actually uplifting! (We’re not saying Han still didn’t shoot first, nor would we want Ripley to lose her awesome flamethrower for real, but maybe Greedo did give the thumbs up first?)

But perhaps these photo manipulations really depict an alternate universe where all these characters are hitchhiking and/or have a really supportive view of their friends.
