Created for British internet provider Plusnet (opens in new tab), these comics take iconic movies and show how a smartphone would make the story so much more straightforward. The appropriately named campaign, App-y Endings: Films that would have turned out better with mobile data, takes the likes of Fight Club and The Lord Of The Rings and gives the main characters smartphones to help them on their way.
