It is apparently National Science Fiction Day today. I wouldn’t have noticed, as that describes every single day for me.
But then NBC Classics emailed me to let me know, and show me this recut trailer for the original Battlestar Galactica, and I love it to pieces. If any new movie came out with a trailer like this, I would totally want to see it. The music, the practical effects, the ever-so-slight overacting…this just does it for me the way the Edward James Olmos version never quite did.
Enjoy. By my command.
