My idea for a KR movie teaser trailer

Post by Dave Knight » Thu Jan 05, 2006 8:02 pm

UNIVERSAL logo

Fade to a bright sun in a cloudless blue sky.

Pan down to a desert highway in the middle of nowhere.

Keep panning down to reveal a faded and peeling billboard sign with a cop car parked in its shade.

Inside the cop car, a cop has his radar gun pointed out at the highway, listening boredly at the police radio, munching on a donut.

In the distance a faint high pitched (but familar to us) engine.

It gets louder

It gets LOUDER

Cut to the cop looking up after hearing it for the first time, as it gets louder still.

Cut to a black shape fly by, and just as quicky you heard the engine sound, its already getting quieter by the second.

Cut to inside cop car, he looks at his radar which is flashing ERROR: OFF THE CHART.

Cop starts up his cruiser, and peels rubber after the speeder, but its too late, he is LONG gone, all that is left is a cloud of sand and debris in his wake.

Cut to the inside of the car, only to show the cop smiling.

Cut to cop staring out to where the cloud is now almost gone.

CUE the familar tv theme, and the classic voice: "One man CAN make a difference."

Fade to black with a COMING SOON copyright 2006 Universal Studios.


What do you think?

I know its not much, but it has the spirit of what KR was, mostly the way KITT made most backwoods cops look like big dummies :D

Oh, I don't know... If you're going to change it, I would do it like this:

Cut to the inside of the car, only to show THERE IS NO ONE DRIVING!


After all, this is Knight Rider... :)

Pan back and up to show the Trans Am driving off, and the cop just sitting there.

Then have Kitt scanner track to close the add.

My idea for a teaser would be more simple. I seem to remember that before Knight Rider lauched in the early 80's they had a commercial that had a man (not any of the actors) standing in a desert talking about this amazing new model of car. Then KITT raced by, or some such.

Well remembering that my idea would be:

Open Desert

A car is under a tarp/cover

A man in a suit walks up and begins talking about the vehicle.
"Speeds in exess of 200MPH. Withstand any collision. Drive for itself. THINK for itself. And so much more."

Camera zooms in on coverd vehicle, the tarp blows off as a dark form rushes out from underneath.

The screen goes black except for an ocillating red light. Below red words glow into view "COMING SOON"


THAT would be a tease.
