Seeing as video encoding is my profession... I can hook y'all up with the trailer if you want.

Moly Holy! The Breathing trailer was alright, but it's nothing compared to the exclusive DVD-owners' "Mystery" teaser. Wow.<P>And I ain't even a Star Wars fan <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif">

PS: It's only the "Large" version of the breathing teaser that you have to buy QTPro for. The other ones are free.

Nah.
They're a bunch of smaller, although still very large, evil empires that often band together to accomplish much greater evils than they could separately.

If it helps, <A HREF="http://www.movie-list.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.movie-list.com/</A> has <I>both</I> versions of teasers ('Breathing' and 'Mystery') online, in a variety of formats and sizes (mostly Quicktime, though).<P>

I liked both trailers. The mech(*) designs looked much more gritty and less sugary than those of That Other Star Wars Movie. And things, in general, seemed darker.<P>Though the name still looms ominously... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"><P>(*) - Mech as in mechanical, not mech as in giant robot. Though Star Wars could use more of those.<P>------------------

I was very pleased by the lack of Jar Jar in the trailer. I've heard that he actually gets far less screen time than he did the first time around.<P>Episode II looks like it could be a far better movie than Phantom Menace, but no one will really be able to be sure until after it comes out.

All of those Scotsman running around with lightsabres was a nice touch too. Oh, wait - I'm talking about something else. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/tongue.gif"><P>As for the trailer I saw, well, at least the acting looked less stilted. But I've learned not to expect anything from Mr. Lucas since the mid 80's. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/frown.gif">

While Mr. Lucas may not have done much of interest since the mid-80s, his company has. X-Wing and TIE Fighter were among the greatest PC games of all time!<P>------------------
