With all the hype about the upcoming Avengers movie (in 3D no less), it’s no surprise that the trailers are of immense importance. Ivan Guerrero, the aspiring filmmaker who did trailers for Ghostbusters and The Empire Strikes Back, has proved worthy of this task.
Ivan used tons of vintage footage from TV shows and movies to create an amazing “premake” trailer. You’ll see clips from classics like Flash Gordon, The Thing from Another World, and even Diana Rigg from those “other Avengers,” that give it a 40’s vibe (though, the theme is based in 1952).
This edited faux trailer is cleverly created and uber cool. You can check out the process used to make the trailer in the frame-by-frame YouTube video.
