I'll admit that I was skeptical about Ray William Johnson's directorial debut, Riley Rewind. The =3 host has built his YouTube reputation almost entirely on one series, and I wasn't sure how well his ability to riff on viral videos would translate to a feature-length presentation. That being said, Johnson has recently released a pair of trailers for Riley Rewind, and I must admit that the film looks pretty good.

The film is the first major production released by the couple's studio, Runaway Machine, which was recently renamed from Runaway Planet to avoid copyright issues with a bluegrass band of the same name. The film's second trailer gives us a good idea of its basic style, and it seems like Riley Rewind will have a balanced combination of science fiction, »
