Watch: 8-Bit Cinema Version of 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Teaser Trailer
"What do you see?" These kind of trailer remakes always make me smile, no matter what. JoBlo made their own "8-bit cinema" version of the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson. This is technically 16-bit video game footage, but we still call it 8-bit because that's where this all originated years and years ago. This video was created by John Stratman for JoBlo, while the others for many years were made by CineFix. As always, when I see movie trailers turned into video games like this, it just makes me want to bust out my NES and play old games the rest of the week. And I really wish this game actually existed, because I would play the crap out of this. But it's just a fun companion to the actual teaser.
Here's the 8-bit cinema version of Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, direct from YouTube:
Here's something pleasant! Makes me want to replay Monkey Island. https://t.co/VX5WhvxtOh
