Fan Film: Hughes The Force Trailer

The world of fan-made films is a world scorched by the explosive crapness of some of the work released by people who think owning a camera and the ability to make your mother laugh qualifies you as the next George Lucas. So, when something actually good-looking arrives, it deserves a marching-band led parade of honour.
Hughes The Force is one such film, which quite brilliantly looks to meld the universes of Star Wars and John Hughes (a match made in Heaven, I think you’d have to agree). And we now have a trailer for it:

Looks like a gem. Here’s the synopsis, from the film’s official site:

Simon and Henry, two teens tortured by jocks and rejected by girls, are invited to the epic end of the year high school party, but there’s a catch. In order to get in, they need to bring just one hot girl. Unable to attract any female attention, they decide to take matters into their own hands and create the perfect woman from Simon’s prized Slave Leia action figure. Armed with a fully operational lightsaber and blaster, the two set out with their self-appointed mentor to do what they have never done before: fit in. On their journey, they encounter stormtroopers, aliens, and even a Dark Lord of the Sith in the most unlikely of places. But even with the Force as their ally, some things are not meant to be…

The team behind Hughes the Force are aiming to enter the film in the 2011 Star Wars fan film challenge, and can already boast the prize of Editor’s Pick for Best Pitch in the Operation Olivia contest. And from what I’ve seen so far, I’d say this one’s definitely going to be one of the good ones.
