This "Modern" Empire Strikes Back Trailer Is Shockingly Great

Cameron Arrigioni decided to take a stab at how modern-day Hollywood would make a trailer for The Empire Strikes Back, and the result is both revealing and kind of phenomenal.

The trailer contains all the modern standards: using of all the most exciting footage, regardless of what it spoils; overwrought captions ("A Man Will Face His Destiny!"); and an incredibly epic score underneath it all (courtesy of Interstellar J.J. Abrams' first Star Trek movie [sorry]), all trying to convince you this is the greatest, most important movie ever made.

The craziest part is that it totally works. I want to put on Empire right now! Of course, there's always a little part of me that wants to watch The Empire Strikes Back at pretty much any given moment, but this video has absolutely made it bigger.
