Metroid: The Sky Calls is an 11-minute, fan-made short film that shows Samus having a very bad day at the office. It is — relative to the scope and budget — very, very good.
It's made by Rainfall Productions, the same team behind that cool Wonder Woman fan short from a few years back, and stars Nerdist's Jessica Chobot as Samus.
I like how more and more fan shorts — except for the truly exceptional ones — these days are smart enough to work within the limitations of their budget, and write (and frame their shots) accordingly.
Suffice to say, this is not an official Nintendo joint:
