The Star Wars/James Bond Mashup You Didn't Know You Needed
When adjusted for inflation, Star Wars and James Bond are the two highest-grossing film franchises in the world. Even without adjusting, they still rank third and fourth, respectively. So just imagine if these two behemoths joined forces. That's exactly what New York's School of Visual Arts student Kurt Rauffer did as part of his senior thesis, when he put together the following video.

The video reimagines the opening titles of The Empire Strikes back in the trademark style of a Bond movie (minus the naked ladies); with slow-panning cinematography and trippy visuals. There's even a Bond-like song to go along with it, in this case Radiohead's "Spectre", which went unused in the movie for which it is named. 

The results are suprisingly fitting and undeniably awesome, so check out the video below - you'll never look at a lightsaber the same way again.
