Old School Fridays: Star Wars

It's Friday, which means a new edition of Old School Fridays has arrived! This week enjoy the original theatrical trailer for Star Wars: Episode IV-A New Hope:

Seriously, if I had only seen this trailer and not the movie, I would have thought Star Wars was the biggest pile of rubbish on the face of the Earth. Of course I know differently, but there was a time where the world didn't know Star Wars, and if this trailer is any indication, it's all the more spectacular that it was as successful as it was. While the trailer is like that of a film you'd probably see on Mystery Science Theater, it has this odd charm about it because you know that the film itself is nothing like this trailer and so you kind of get to enjoy it in all of its awfulness.

That does it for this Friday. Tune in next week for a special Christmas Edition of Old School Fridays!
