In the first episode of Star Wars Rebels, “The Recruit,” Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) sees New Republic pilot Kazuda Xiono’s (Christopher Sean) phenomenal flying skills and recruits Kaz as a Resistance Agent. Throughout the first season, Kaz’s skills are more impressive in the air than on the ground. Within the Colossus, Kaz finds it hard […]
Disney’s latest Star Wars animated television show – Disney Channel‘s Star Wars Resistance – has gotten positive reviews by critics but a mixed response from viewers. Many fans of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels have been turned off by the show’s much younger target audience. I will admit that I was ambivalent about the show […]
I love Hannibal Tabu. He hates so much. And he really hates Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So much he saw it twice just to make sure he really hated it. Expect much of this to inform his upcoming columns but for now get the raw emotion here. THE BLACK GUY Oh, FN-2187 … no, […]
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T37G-XozqTA[/youtube] There is only one good thing to come out of The Phantom Menace. Here it is in action, thanks to Patrick Willems.
Up front: Don’t get too excited because it’s only The Phantom Menace… though, on the other hand, this could be a sign of the way things are going to work across the whole series. Last year, Panasonic gave away copies of the Star Wars saga on Blu-ray for folks who picked up their home theatre […]
You have to give Lucasfilm credit, there's no shying away from the controversial, fanbaiting elements of The Phantom Menace in this new trailer for the 3D version.
Seems that one of the chief marketing strategies for the re-release of The Phantom Menace in 3D has been to allow characters from the film to bleed out into ads for other products. I suppose that makes a lot of sense. Here’s the latest: I’d imaginee an English language version is pretty likely, so I’ll […]
In order to win a pair of tickets, read and follow these instructions: To celebrate the release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace 3D which arrives in cinemas February 9th, we are giving away two pairs of tickets to an exclusive advance screening on Wednesday the 8th February. The screening will take place […]
When the poster arrived for the 3D re-release of The Phantom Menace I noted the focus on Darth Maul and the avoidance of CG blot Jar Jar Binks. I didn’t even mention that the film’s supposed central character, young Annakin Skywalker, was also completely absent. Funny how he slips the mind so easily… The trailer […]
Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox have unveiled the first poster for The Phantom Menace 3D. It’s interesting to note, I think, that the film is also getting a 2D re-release at the same time. I assume that all of the minor changes in evidence on the current Blu-ray will also be apparent in the new […]
The internet continues telling George Lucas he’s wrong to try and make his personal works of art the way he wants them, and that he has no right to hold back products that he doesn’t wish to sell. It’s like there’s an army of people who think they’re somehow entitled by birthright to pristine copies […]
I’ve just had a quick chat with Matt Bristowe, Head of Production at stereo house Prime Focus after the “big” 3D debate at Empire Big Screen. He’s confirmed for me that all work is complete on the 3D version of Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace. As well you know, the film is hitting […]
I don’t know how Quora works, really, but I’m sure I should find out. Nonetheless, there’s an interesting bit of info on there tonight that I thought was worth passing along. Here’s the Q: How did Apple.com become the de facto spot for movie trailers? The major record companies giving up control to iTunes is a […]
The 3D upconversion of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace has been set for February 10th 2012. That’s less than a year away – or, if you’d rather, almost a year away. Unless the film is an almighty turkey (in box office terms, because I think we already have some idea of its artistic merits) the […]
