The history of movies from 1878 to 2014 in just three minutes

Here's a wide ranging film montage that shows the evolution of film from its conception in 1878 to the whizbang movie trailers of today. It covers over a hundred years of film, with a new movie representing a new year starting from 1920 and on. Made by Scott Ewing, the compilation clip comes quick at you but it's supremely enjoyable to watch.

Ewing writes:

The following montage chronicles the evolution of film from its conception in 1878 by Edward J. Muybridge to the Lumiere brothers in 1895. Georges Melies a trip to the moon in 1902 was a total game changer and from there we go to the first theatrical releases starting in 1920-2014 ... this portion of the montage is chronological.
