Coming Attractions: STARCRASH (1978) International Release Trailer

"From the Haunted Stars, to the infinite limits of the universe..." 

Today we've got an International release trailer for Luigi Cozzi's Starcrash (with Dutch subtitles). Unlike the U.S. trailer that was cut by Joe Dante for New World Pictures, this one features an appropriately pretentious narration and lots of dialogue from the film (Dante deliberately only used some of Plummer's less-goofy lines as a voice-over).

Still... we all know I love this movie, and it's fun to see this different trailer, especially as it includes the classic line: "Imperial battleship - halt the flow of time!"

  1. We have bad movie night with our kids and son in law(early 20's and 19) every 2 or 3 months. 2 movies back it was Starcrash. I love the film, so much bizarreness going on. We had a great time and the line: "Imperial battleship - halt the flow of time!" brought roars of laughter and the kids screamed "THE HOFF" when he appeared on the screen. We watch the trailer then the movie whenever possible. Although I don't think they can ever feel the same way we do about the 70's movies and tv shows, it is fun to introduce them to a world that really was quite a bit different even back then.
