A fanmade trailer shows us how an Abrams-helmed EMPIRE might have been sold.
Hot on the heels of the announcement that JJ Abrams will be directing Star Wars: Episode VII we get this look at an alternate history.
I like this fake trailer a lot. The premise is this: what if JJ Abrams directed The Empire Strikes Back? What would that trailer have looked like? I think Gavin Chin mostly nails it. He doesn't go overboard on the flares, but they're there. He has the right kind of ominous music. The trailer plays up sturm und drang over character. The only thing missing, I think, is some sort of pointless mystery. It need a hashtag at the end, like #whatisdagobah or #thereisanother, and maybe a link to a viral site. Otherwise: bravo!
