'Star Wars: Attack Of the Clones' Honest Trailer Reminds Us How Awful Hayden Christensen Really Was
"So, correct me if I'm wrong here, but the clones never actually attack anyone in this movie — so why the f*** would you call this movie Attack of the Clones?!" One again, Honest Trailers asks the tough questions. This time they've asked it with the second installment in the last Star Wars trilogy, AKA the trilogy many of us agreed to heavily repress over the last decade.
With J.J. Abrams' Star Wars sequel trilogy well underway, though, it's time to dig it up from the recesses of our memory — at least long enough to remember how hilariously wrong it all went. And in this day and age sometimes all you need to do just that is a youtube video pointing out just how damn creepy and out-of-touch Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker was. He is, as the peeps at Screen Junkies describe him, "a rat-tailed asshole who's been creepily stalking Padmé for the last decade."
The whole thing might as well be a letter to Abrams. To paraphrase its point: Please don't do this to us again, J.J. Haven't we suffered enough?
This upcoming trilogy may not have everything we hoped for in terms of casting — but it's gotta be better than the last Star Wars films to hit theaters, right?
