The Original Star Wars Trailer (1976)

Before “A New Hope”, “Star Wars” was just “Star Wars” and in 1976 a trailer was released for a film that would change pop culture and cinema. Its tone was nothing like what you would come to associate with the original film, mostly because it lacked the rousing John Williams’ score that we all know so well. No this one just has narration and its borderline creepy narration. Yet, despite this, people still flocked to see the film.

With the hype and marketing surrounding trailer releases nowadays, I am looking at you “Force Awakens”, it is nice to remember that this is how it all began.
