In 1982, a group of kids wanted to make a movie. Not just any movie, however. They wanted to make Raiders of the Lost Ark. That’s exactly what they did. Shot for shot, Chris Strompolos and Eric Zala attempted to recreate Steven Spielberg‘s masterpiece. It took seven years.
They didn’t quite finish at the time, but eventually fandom took over. Years later the remake began to take on a life of its own. The Internet got a hold of it, famous filmmakers championed it, a book was written and eventually, the old friends decided to shoot the one scene they couldn’t do when they started – the airplane fight.
That full story is told in a new documentary called Raiders!, directed by Jeremy Coon and Tim Skousen. It’ll premiere at next month’s South by Southwest film festival. Now, a trailer has been released. Check out the Raiders documentary trailer below. Read More »
