Awesome trailer turns Empire Strikes Back into '50s sci-fi

Remakes, reboots, reimaginings—enough already! How about a premake? That's what whoiseyevan did to The Empire Strikes Back, by asking (and answering) the question "What if Star Wars was a '50s 3-D movie?"

The Empire Strikes Back will be turning 30 in just a few days—but check out what purports to be a trailer for its original 1950 release 60 years ago.

Leslie Nielsen as Luke Starkiller? We're in!

(And thanks to SF Signal for the heads-up!)
