Watch: The Last Starfighter Modern Trailer



If there ever is a movie to be remade in Hollywood, it has to the The Last Starfighter.

Back when actual arcade games were all the rage, a gamer finds himself recruited into an intergalactic war when he nabs the high-score on a Starfighter video game. 

The Last Starfighter came out in 1984 starring Lance Guest, Robert Preston, Dan O'Herlihy, Catherine Mary Stewart, Norman Snow and Kay E. Kuter.

While the movie obviously borrowed from Star Wars and Tron, the special effects were really good for the time, and I loved the movie as a nine-year old kid.

A sequel was actually in development at one time, but the latest is that it's currently stuck in "pre-production."

The Last Star Fighter was also adapted into an off-Broadway musical back in 2004.

Now we have a fan-made "modern" trailer for the movie.
