It’s not an easy thing to make a good movie trailer — to find the right clips and shots; the right music; and not give anything away in a two-minute span is really an unsung art form. Every once in a great while, a regular, everyday you or I loads up their editing program and puts together and creates a great trailer for a movie that technically doesn’t exist, thus showing that they could very well be the next great trailer-cutting master.
While on Twitter today, a one Mr. Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Slither) pointed out just such a trailer that someone had made. This trailer featured Fillion in the much-rumored role of Hal Jordan for the upcoming feature film version of Green Lantern. The trailer features some obvious pieces of other TV and movie titles, but with a little addition here and there, some good music, and an all-around well-edited sequence of shots, you have yourself an impressive new Green Lantern trailer! And when the man you choose and use in your fan-made trailer notices and loves it, then you know you’ve done a mighty damn fine job.

After seeing the Green Lantern trailer, I was reminded of another impressive fan-cut trailer for the BioShock movie that’s supposedly coming our way eventually. Both of these trailers can be seen below. Remember, these are not real; they’re strictly here for entertainment purposes and to show-off the skills of some talented undiscovered video editors.
I wonder if this will put Fillion in the running for the role that has had many rumored, but none 100% confirmed!
