Empire Strikes Back director dead at 87

Holy crap! Another day, another legend dies. RIP Irvin Kershner.

Irvin who? He directed The Empire Strikes Back people, arguably the best chapter in the Star Wars saga. He also made Robocop 2, one of my fave underrated sequels. Then there's Never Say Never again, the Bond film that brought Sean Connery back to the role for one last go around.

There's not much more that can be said, other than thanks, Irvin, for make one of the greatest movies in history. May the force be with you, always.

Here's a look at the original trailer for Empire.
