Dorothy, now 93 years old, was watching some of her favorite movies in her home theater when, as one would expect in tornadic climes such as Kansas, her house blew away to somewhere over the rainbow.
"Not again!" Dorothy cried to her dog, Toto #6.
Looking around at the wreckage of her home, she noticed something peculiar. All of her DVD's had fused together magically here in the land of OZ. The titles of her movies were unreadable, but the fused descriptions of these films were still intact:

  1. A lawyer defends a black man who ruthlessly gunned down a songbird.

  2. In post-apocolyptic Australia, surviving humans are attacked by driverless trucks.

  3. A superhero-turned-pimp operates his business out of a morgue.

  4. A group of diamond thieves ends up taking hostages in a bank.

  5. A debt collector for the mob befriends a quirky diner waitress.

  6. A widow and her three daughters can see dead people.

  7. A bunch of vampire boys play baseball all summer inspite of the devil-dog lurking next door.

  8. A jilted man travels all the way under the sea to stalk a beautiful fish.

  9. An aspiring wizard moves to New York with a high-maintenance blonde.

  10. A troubled veteran gets a job chauffering an elderly woman

  11. A tough-as-nails dancing cop with a powerful handgun gets an infant out of a corner.

  12. In the near future, a mentally challenged cop uses farm equipment to kill androids.

BONUS question: Three movies fused together:
A math genius mobster, accused of murder, is acquitted with the help of his young, military lawyer.

Can you determine the new, fused movie title for each, based on the new movie descriptions?

BONUS HINT

The bonus has nothing angry or rainy about it.

EDIT
Reworded the question. The answers should be a single title composed of parts of the original two (or more, BONUS) movie titles.
TV Show Example: Happy Days fused with Days of our Lives would create:
Happy Days of our Lives.
Sorry for the inaccurate question phrasing! :)

    $\begingroup$ "All of her DVD's had fused together " you mean pairs had fused together? It sounds like a single block, a d took a while to figure out otherwise. $\endgroup$ – JDługosz Jun 15 '16 at 16:55
