What Would The Last Starfighter Trailer Be Like If It Was Released Today?

The Last Starfighter
The Last Starfighter which was originally released back in 1984 is certainly one of my favorite films of that year. I still love that movie to this day and that might be because I hope that somehow…someday…I might be visited by Centauri and given my chance to prove I have what it takes to be a Starfighter.

You know, prove my Family wrong that I wasted my youth playing video games.

There has been talk of a remake of the Last Starfighter for a number of years and it seems like Steven Spielberg is itching to take a crack at it but so far the original filmmakers have fortunately refused to allow that to happen. But thanks to the very talented Tim Gonzales we can look at how the original Last Starfighter trailer might presented if it was released in theaters today.
