The Empire Strikes Back 'Premake' Edit

For all those who enjoy Star Wars, which I assume is almost everyone, you should check out this amazing found footage edit done by whoiseyevan.

What he does is source out old movie footage to create 'premakes' - trailers for modern or popular films in the style of films from the 1940's or 1950's. It's actually quite impressive that he was able to find so many clips that could double for the popular Star Wars characters. Whether Lucas took inspiration from any of these films is debatable, but the point is that the edit is so good it makes you believe he just might have.
