‘Star Wars’ and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Get Combined into One Seriously Epic Trailer
If you asked just about anyone you know, right now, what the two biggest film franchises on the planet are, the answer would undoubtedly be either ‘Star Wars’ or the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But now you don’t need to choose between the two, as one very productive fan has taken the classic ‘Star Wars’ trilogy and created a new trailer in the style of ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ which somehow makes George Lucas’ original films even more epic.
Thanks to the return of ‘Star Wars’ with J.J. Abrams’ ‘The Force Awakens’ (and the promise of that first trailer to deliver beyond what we thought was possible for a franchise everyone believed to be long-dead), the series is once again one of the most popular—if not the most popular—in the word…and the first new installment doesn’t even hit theaters for another 11 months.
And then there’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ Joss Whedon’s highly-anticipated follow-up to the first ‘Avengers’ film, which reunites all of our favorite major Marvel superheroes from the Cinematic Universe to team up against the sinister Ultron. The trailers for ‘Age of Ultron’ have leaned heavily on an eerie, down-tempo version of “I’ve Got No Strings” from ‘Pinocchio’ for a darker, more intense tone, and the result has been both riveting and a little unnerving.
The above trailer from YouTube user The Unusual Suspect takes the score from the ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ trailers and edits together footage from the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy to craft a new, totally epic trailer. Even the way the footage is edited together is reminiscent of the ‘Age of Ultron’ trailers, with pulsating fade-outs to punctuate the transitions between scenes.
Now, what would happen if you edited an ‘Age of Ultron’ trailer in the style of ‘Star Wars’? Your move, Internet.
‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ hits theaters on May 1. ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ arrives on December 18.
