[Graphic: The following PREVIEW has been approved for ALL AUDIENCES. The film
advertised is NOT YET RATED.]

[TITLE CARD: August 27, 2004]

                          PRESIDENT JACK GROVER (v.o.)
                        It has come to my attention that there
                        is a terrorist organization operating
                        with impunity within the borders of the
                        United States.  They call themselves the
                        Jihad, and they're extremely dangerous.

FADE IN to the Oval Office. President JACK GROVER and Homeland Security
Secretary WILLIAM LAFONTAINE are in a meeting. GROVER is holding a thick
dossier.

                                   LAFONTAINE
                        Sir?

                                     GROVER
                        You heard me, Billy. I want you to round
                        these people up. Use whatever you have to,
                        FBI, CIA, ATF, whatever. But I want them
                        in jail or dead as quick as you can.

                                   LAFONTAINE
                        I... yes, sir.

[Music: Clint Mansell "Requiem for a Dream" (or the trailer music for "Lord of
the Rings: The Two Towers" if you prefer)]

[TITLE CARD: August 30, 2004]

SCENE: Federal agents in full body armor, SWAT backup, etc. storm into a large,
modern office building. They run through the corridors, up the stairs and so on
until they reach the top floor office. They halt, all pointing their weapons at
the chair behind the desk.

CLOSE-UP: The chair slowly turns to reveal DR. JONATHAN FNORD, wearing his best
Architect "I am superior to you in every way" expression.

                                     FNORD
                        Is there something I can do for you,
                        gentlemen?

EXT. SPIRAL BUILDING, LONG SHOT: The top five floors of the Spiral Building
explode in a towering column of flame.

SCENE: A team of FBI agents push their way through a hostile crowd on Sproul
Plaza at UC Berkeley. Suddenly, the crowd turns on the agents, and shots ring
out. All hell breaks loose. KATZE BRENNER hides from the rushing crowds and the
cops by ducking into a steam tunnel.

                                  KATZE (v.o.)
                        They *knew*. They knew *where* to
                        find us.

SCENE: RENS HOUBEN and JOSEPH LACROIX ambush a federal paddywagon at a toll
plaza in the greater San Francisco Bay area. Scene ends when RENS, standing on
the aforementioned paddywagon, gestures and several approaching police cars are
lifted several feet off the ground simultaneously.

                                  KATZE (v.o)
                        They knew *when* to find us. We only
                        got out by dumb luck.

SCENE: Generic military command center.

                                   GENERAL 1
                        The President has authorized the use of
                        nuclear weapons against the terrorists.

                                   GENERAL 2
                        Nuclear weapons!? Against a target on
                        American soil!? He can't be serious, can
                        he?

                                   GENERAL 1
                        I don't know.
                                     (beat)
                        But those are our instructions.

SCENE: A *very large* number of bombers and fighter escorts flying in formation
over the Rockies towards Blanca Mountain.

                                  KATZE (v.o.)
                        We've got to find out why America just
                        declared war on us.

SCENE: Somewhere with a view in Lower Manhattan. MALACLYPSE THE SEEKER is
holding presidential advisor ROMAN MARX up by the lapels.

                                   MALACLYPSE
                                   (furious)
                        What the hell have you done? TELL ME!

                                      MARX
                       (terrified, yet oddly triumphant)
                        HE'S COMING! The Master is coming back!
                        You only have days to live, Jihaddi! The
                        Great Act of Love will sweep over the Earth,
                        and you can't stop it!

CUT TO BLACK

                                 BARNEY (v.o.)
                               (heavily distored)
                        Hello, alll my old friends! I'm baaaaack!

SCENE: Intense air combat action on the slopes of Blanca Mountain.

SCENE: Chaos in the streets as protestors, police, National Guard, and
spongified slaves of Barney clash all at once.

SCENE: The Magnificent Twelve Jihaddi cannoning up for the fight. Shot of the
Barney-Slayer being pulled out of storage.

                                   MALACLYPSE
                        Well, time to go save the world again.

SCENE: CECROPS TANGAROA doing his gun-fu thing against a horde of lizardmen
dressed like Secret Service agents.

                                 BARNEY (v.o.)
                        I love you...

SCENE: DIEDRE GREIST, equipped with a robot that looks like a BattleTech mech by
way of Junkyard Wars, engages in a running... well, plodding gun battle with
Federal agents

                                 BARNEY (v.o.)
                        You love me...

SCENE: An atomic mushroom cloud blooms on the surface of Blanca Mountain. The
shockwave causes dust to fall down in the base.

                                 BARNEY (v.o.)
                        We're a great big family...

SCENE: Two dragons, one blue as shimmering sapphires, one black as night, (ARIS
MERQUONI and SHADUR T'KHARN, respectively) soar out of the skies above the White
house, cross in front of the camera and come to a synchronized landing on the
lawn, roaring menace and defiance in the general direction of the West Wing.

OH.. MY.. GOD!

My heart nearly stopped, it was so tense Shocked

That is one of the best written pieces I've seen in a long time (and believe me, I read a lot (meaning at least two hours a day Very Happy )

The pacing was very good, I felt like I was actually there, and it ended on a exciting note.

Absolutely excellent, Mal! This is Oscar Material!

Maybe a 'Flash' trailer would be something to consider? Just a thought, you guys know best.

Cheers
Patrick
