THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK as a 50s Sci-Fi Movie

     May 19, 2010

Ivan Guerrero has done something very cool.  He’s taken loads of classic sci-fi movie clips and spliced them together to make a 50s-style movie trailer for The Empire Strikes Back.  Guerrero has more of these “Premakes”, but this one is a must-see.  I just can’t help but marvel at how he was able to find the right old clips to make a reasonable comparison to the iconic imagery of Star Wars.  But he did and it’s damn impressive.

Hit the jump to check it out along with a list of all the films he used to put it together.

Here’s Guerrero’s list of films he took footage from (and obviously he did some text and small special effects).  Also, if you’d like to see more of his Premakes, click here [via The Awesomer]:
