Lost Finale Fan Trailer SR Pick [Video]: Lost Finale Fan Made Trailer

A fan-made trailer for the Lost finale has already caught the attention of showrunner Damon Lindelof. The co-creator of Lost tweeted about the brilliantly cut trailer only one day after it showed up on YouTube. I have to admit, I got chills more than once during the two-minute video.

Now, I’m not saying it is perfect. In fact, it lacks some essential characters and iconic moments. But that’s not the point. In only two minutes, the trailer could get any naysayer to watch the show and it is almost entirely thanks to the music. The track in question is “Shooting Star” from the Stardust score. The music captures the epic nature of a finale six years in the making.

Lost has completely captivated audiences since its inception, and continues to mystify. The show does not merit a kind of insane trailer like the one we made for this summer’s slate of movies. Instead, it should be presented with the same emotion and fascination the show explores.

The trailer does a wonderful job of mixing natural sound and music. The creator added an echo to much of John Locke’s dialogue, giving him a celestial narration. Instead of relying on action and explosions, the trailer focuses on the mystery of the island. After all, that is what the show is about, right?

While this may not be the trailer you see on television, it is undoubtedly one of the best you’ll see for Lost.  It makes you realize just how wonderful the look and spirit of the show truly was.

The 2 1/2 hour Lost finale airs on ABC on Sunday, May 23rd, 2010. What did you think of the trailer?

  1. Does anyone else kinda hope that the ending of Lost will just be a gag or something?
    Like they get into the room that’s supposed to explain everything and all just get pies in the face and that’s the end?
    Or the creators are there and say “Yeah, we just made this stuff up as we went along to see how much ludicrous crap we could get away with and still be taken seriously, which is ALOT it turns out”

    Or possibly that it turns out that this is the Fantasy Island island and with Mr. Rourke and Tatu dead all the fantasies ran out of control….

    • They guy in the control room could be a monkey in a robe with a sign that says “Fool me twice…”

    • whoa whoa whoa…LOST isn’t a remake of Fantasy Island? What have I been watching? Now, I am truly confused. I think I’ll stick with my theory that Hurley is Tatu.

  2. You just delivered a solid resume for an editing job. Awesome piece of work.

  3. Wow. That was amazing. Gave me the chills at the end there.

  4. This trailer was amazing. I watched it numerous times to be able to see all the clips that flash so quickly at the beginning. But I must say it is the music that made it a spine tingling experience for me. That track is amazing! I have seen Stardust before and didn’t remember it from the film – which shocks me considering how great it is. I’m def going to download it now! Anyway – amazing trailer – amazing track – amazing show – can’t wait till Sunday!!!
