There is a never-ending argument over which of the original Star Wars movies deserves the most praise, but the Death Star trench run at the end of A New Hope is without a doubt one of the most exciting scenes in the series.
Chris Hardwick and Jonah Ray of Nerdist have stepped in to help Dustin McLean's DustFilms recreate that very scene using homemade effects and props, taking on the roles from the film, and providing a soundtrack that would make John Williams proud. Once you've watched this masterpiece, be sure to check out the behind the scenes footage to see how they put it all together.
