1979: THE BLACK HOLE MOVIE TRAILER

MAN IS ABOUT TO ENTER... THE BLACK HOLE!

Here's the original trailer for Disney's 1979 entry into "The League of Star Wars Wannabes".  

The movie generated a lot of playground buzz at the time (as did STAR WARS, of course, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25th CENTURY) so it comes as a surprise to discover neither the movie nor its copious merchandising were considered terribly successful.

It cost $20 million to produce (with a generous marketing and distribution budget on top) and grossed $36 million in North America, the 21st highest grossing movie of the year.

A JOURNEY THAT BEGINS WHEN EVERYTHING ENDS.
