You Should Be the Next Astronaut is a trailer for a sci-fi film. âIn 2000 thousands of sci-fi fans bought tickets to films theyâd never normally pay to see, simply on the basis that these films were preceded by the trailer for George Lucasâs Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Significantly, once theyâd seen the trailer for Lucasâs movie, these sci-fi fans left their seats and the main feature played to row upon row of empty seats.â (C. de Meaux)
