Original film title: The Empire Strikes Back
Fanedit film title: Pulp Empire
Date Original Film Was Released: 1980
Date Fanedit Was Released: May the 4th, 2013
Original Runtime: 127 minutes
New Runtime: 89 minutes
Intention: To take The Empire Strikes Back and remix it, using songs from and inspired by the films of Quentin Tarantino. 100% of the score has been replaced, as well as overdubbing Yoda with Pai Mei, from Kill Bill Volume 2.
There are many visual nods to Tarantino as well, but in no way is this intended to be a new Tarantino film! It's intended as a fun homage to one of my favourite filmmakers, and a remix of one of the best films ever made. Steering away from the Tarantino vibe, I have also included a hero moment for most of the main characters. Hope you enjoy it!
Version.2, May 2014:
- 5.1 Surround Sound Remixed edition, featuring better integration of the new soundtrack, almost all John Williams 'spill' removed, and many other audio fixes, including noise removal from Yoda's redubbed dialogue.
- Restoration of original Pulp Empire ending, which leaves Luke's fate unresolved.
- Alternate Mix by L8wrtr, including some new music choices.
- Commentary track by njvc and L8wrtr
