Watch the Original Raiders of the Lost Ark Trailer Side-By-Side With Its Fan-Made Remake

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

When three young filmmakers decided to remake Raiders of the Lost Ark shot for shot, they had no idea where it would take them. Now, a documentary about the experience is coming out, and a new trailer has been cut that feels very familiar.

Taking footage from the fan-made remake that’s the subject of the upcoming documentary, Raiders, Drafthouse has cut a trailer that’s almost identical to the first trailer for Raiders of the Lost Ark, and put them side by side. It’s really cool.


The documentary Raiders: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made will open June 17. You can read more and get tickets here. We’ll have an excellent exclusive clip next week.
