The Empire Strikes Back with a James Bond Title Sequence

The aesthetic of the James Bond films is put to work for the movie The Empire Strikes Back. The style was set by Maurice Binder, who produced the titles for the first Bond film, Dr. No in 1962, and 13 others. Although they’ve been modernized a bit in 50 years, you still recognize each one as particular to the Bond series, and even when the style is applied to a space adventure. Kurt Rauffer created this as his senior thesis at SVA in New York. The music is “Spectre” by Radiohead, which was rejected from the film, but Rauffer felt the song spoke to Luke “ trying to find himself and true purpose.” (via Digg)
