Our friends over at Moviefone came up with a clever time-waster question: What if this summer's indie movies were instead giant blockbusters? What would they look like? What would they be about? After all, summer is definitely a strange animal -- because while it's known for its massive, big-budgeted popcorn flicks, summer is also a time for a host of indie films (most of which previously played festivals like Sundance, Berlin, SXSW and Tribeca) to find their little profitable corner in theaters. So you'll have a Transformers 2 ... but you'll also have a 500 Days of Summer or a Moon or an Away We Go. It's pretty weird to see two completely types of films co-existing in this hot, steamy marketplace, but that's what makes it so much fun, I suppose.

Anyway, Moviefone took this summer's most talked-about indies and pretended they were also blockbusters. Here's a taste of what they came up with:

'500 Days of Summer'
What It Is: A charming, offbeat romance about a greeting card writer's year-and-a-half courtship of a free-spirited woman who doesn't believe that love exists.
What It Could've Been: Roland Emmerich's latest global warming-oriented disaster flick in which we watch in delight as the Statue of Liberty melts, the Atlantic Ocean evaporates and the entire population of Arizona spontaneously combusts.








'Humpday'
What It Is: In this latest entry from the "mumblecore" movement (low-budget filmmaking characterized by improv and naturalism), two hetero friends attempt to have sex with each other for an art project.
What It Could've Been: A couple of totally straight bros/undercover cops (Dane Cook and Johnny Knoxville) must pretend they're lovers in order to infiltrate an ecstasy ring operated out of a Chelsea nightclub.
