If The Empire Strikes Back Trailer Was Released Today

Now trailers are getting reboots. But don't despair - this one is awesome.

Star Wars fan Cameron Arrigioni took it upon himself to recut The Empire Strikes Back as a modern Hollywood teaser. He sent it to Mark Hamill, who liked it so much he shared it on his Facebook page.

You can compare and contrast Arrigioni's effort with the original trailer below. The 1979 version is voiced by Harrison Ford, who puts on his deepest voice to bill the film as, "A big, new sprawling space adventure in the Star Wars saga." Simpler times.
