“So four months ago, I set out to make the biggest, most star-studded film in the history of American cinema—something that packed everything moviegoers love into one spectacular motion picture event.
“And tonight my dream has been realized!” he concludes. “Here it is, our gift to you, the world premiere trailer for the greatest film ever made: Movie: the Movie.”

Plus, the special effects are pretty good.
