TRAILER TREASURES: THE LAST STARFIGHTER
The Last Starfighter is awesome. That's a fact. The trailer doesn't really have the same gung-ho Star Wars/Buck Rogers rip-off majesty of the film itself, but gives you a glimpse of one of the early adventures the film industry had with CG effects. To this day it remains a brilliant thing to watch. It's a weird combo of Back To The Future and the aformentioned space operas, following the exploits of a young man who is recruited by aliens via a video game (seriously!) to defend the universe against evil. Stuff explodes. There are spaceships. It has a fantastic theme tune. What more need I say?
