The Empire Strikes Back (Trailers)

We’re coming up on the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, and Youtuber AD_Edits created a modern-style trailer for it. I think it’s okay, but a bit boring and drawn out. Here it is below:

I much prefer this old trailer (below), especially the cool transitions that each of the major character’s still get. Luke’s portrait appearing when the Imperial March is playing is pretty awesome! This is a trailer that gets you so pumped to see it that you pre-order tickets asap, whereas the modern trailer is more like “I’ll wait until the reviews are in before I commit to a full-priced ticket”. YMMV of course.

May the Force be with you!
