The Dark Star Wars Knight
The Dark Knight meets Star Wars .
Understandably, things get just a little bit amazing.
The palette may be turgidly muted, but if nothing else, at least this is consistent with JJ Abrams' tendency to crash/implode the biggest thing he can find in each of his projects (see also: Cloverfield (opens in new tab) /Lost/Star Trek: Into Darkness).
Video Game Trailer Genius
It's not just clever Photoshoppers who have got in on the action.
One clever video editor has mashed up the best Star Wars video game CGI cutscenes and the brilliant Star Trek Into Darkness (opens in new tab) trailer audio (can't beat a bit of Cumberbatch) to create a Star Wars film that we would pay serious dollar to say.
Ah, a fanmade poster that doesn't automatically assume Luke will turn to the Dark Side.
Make the most of it, things are about to get a whole lot evil-er...
It's testament to the coolness of the lightsaber that simply the image of a Jedi hanging around in a field (opens in new tab) makes us excited.
If Abrams' movie vision is anywhere as simple and effective as this poster, we'll be happy.
Little Miss Starshine
Artist Josh Lange's Little Miss Sunshine (opens in new tab) / Star Wars poster mash-up was inspired by the news that LMS screenwriter Michael Arndt had been attached to reinvent the Jedi universe.
If we're comparing like-for-like, that means we should expect Han Solo to have a cheerful drug addiction, R2-D2 to perform a worryingly sexy strip tease, and Luke Skywalker to have turned into a depressed homosexual.
We would totally watch that.
Star Wars: Into Darkness
Josh Lange (opens in new tab) returned with another inspired poster that riffs off JJ Abrams' involvement. Upon hearing the casting news, Lange used the Star Trek: Into Darkness poster as the base for a moody, planet-bound teaser.
Part Serenity , a little Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and a tasteful homage to the original Star Wars .
We'd watch TheForce.net's DarkGingerJedi (opens in new tab) 's 'New Hope' for a Wars movie.
Luke Skywalker's gone bad-ass in this lava-tastic, tagline-baiting poster from TheForce.net (opens in new tab) .
The most popular conceptual poster to date undoubtedly goes to artist Adam Schikling who used the painted posters for the other six movies as inspiration.
It's a thing of undeniably geriatric beauty - and you can see how he pencilled and painted it with a step-by-step guide over on his website (opens in new tab) .
Intriguing tagline + lady girdle + 'good guy' lightsaber = the perfect teaser poster.
It was only a matter of time.
With Abrams in charge of Stars both Wars and Trek, one ingeious video editor has mashed up scenes from the original Star Wars movies and the score and styling from Into Darkness to create the ultimate trailer crossover.
