New Episode II Trailer Hints at Greatness

Sweeping from the darkness for the first time in more than a month, I've returned to offer galactic tidings with an "Episode II" update. For the 1.5 billion of you who have already seen the new "Attack of the Clones" trailer, this news will be late and irrelevant. But I really don't care—especially since the new trailer is a jaw-dropping spectacle that's better than "Cats" and meant to be seen again and again.

And you can do exactly that by downloading the beast from StarWars.com. The trailer is in Quicktime format, which is the good news, but you'll need to upgrade to Quicktime Pro ($29.99) to see the large, broadband version. It's a cheeky marketing move by Lucasfilm and Apple, but you've got to admire their moxy and timing—what other non-porn download would you pay for?

StarWars.com has also unveiled a new one-sheet poster for "Attack of the Clones" and if you're a fan of the character-collage-with-lens-flare design used for the "Star Wars" special edition art, you'll be enraptured by this one.
