[Review] Elstree 1976

17 May 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Everybody knows Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher. When Disney bought Lucasfilm from George Lucas and announced they’d be producing a new Star Wars trilogy and spin-off features, everyone knew those three would be back in the fold. Even guys like Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, and Kenny Baker were known commodities to consult if not star underneath the costumes they made famous. But what of the other actors — the nameless, sometimes faceless, and almost always uncredited performers who were a part of something so universally revered? Does their being extras mean they weren’t as important to the legend? Fans lining up for autographs don’t think so. Anyone on set and immortalized in one of history’s greatest cinematic franchises is an unequivocal hero.

To people like me who love the series but never rendered it into a cornerstone of daily life, however, these smaller, hidden roles prove an intriguing curio. »

Belladonna Of Sadness

Release Date: Coming Soon from Cinelicious Pics Written By: Yoshiyuki Fukuda, Jules Michelet (novel), Eiichi Yamamoto Directed By: Eiichi Yamamoto Starring: Tatsuya Nakadai, Katsuyuki Itô, Aiko Nagayama

When I heard about Cinelicious Pics’ plans to restore and release the long lost 1973 anime Belladonna Of Sadness, I was well and truly excited. I’m a huge aficionado of 70s-era anime, and this baby has been a “holy grail” of sorts for folks like me for a good many years — much desired but damn near impossible to obtain. So that being said, and with those expectations set freakin’ sky high, let’s see if ol’ Belladonna was worth the wait or will it just fill me with sadness of my own!

Belladonna Of Sadness, based loosely (and by that I mean hardly at all) on the French novel La Sorcière by Jules Michelet, tells the brutal tale of Jeanne, »

Elstree 1976 – Review

6 May 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The fact that the documentary doesn’t mention Star Wars in the title is a telling indication of the kind of film Jon Spira has made. With the focus on the people behind the masks and costumes, Spira deliberately has focused his lens on the lives of these actors and not the characters that they became famous for. Fans of Star Wars might be disappointed by this decision, but the result is a film that is more thoughtful than just another look at the legacy of the iconic series.

Minor characters and some that really aren’t even considered characters (sorry, stormtrooper who knocked his noggin against a blast door) step into the spotlight in Elstree 1976. While some of these actors or actresses may not mean much to the casual Star Wars filmgoer, the super fans will delight in watching the guy who play Greedo, the former bodybuilder who »

Meet the Man Behind Boba Fett's Mask in New 'Star Wars' Doc

24 March 2016 11:31 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The Force Awakens has sparked a tremendous amount of excitement for a new generation of Star Wars stories, but the success of J.J. Abrams' film has also rekindled a widely shared nostalgia for George Lucas' original trilogy. Judging by the trailer for Jon Spira's Elstree 1976 — an upcoming documentary about the unassuming background actors who brought the original movie, now known as A New Hope, to life — that nostalgia extends to the people who made these movies what they are. 

Named after the British production facility where Lucas shoot Episodes IV — VI, »

'Elstree 1976' Trailer Celebrates the Unsung Heroes of 'Star Wars'

23 March 2016 2:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars is hotter than it's ever been. Following Disney's acquisition of LucasFilm back in 2012, the studio has already launched Star Wars: The Force Awakens to both blockbuster box office and critical raves. The first spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has wrapped and is ready for release this December. And Star Wars: Episode VIII is continuing to shoot in various locations around the globe as we speak. None of these movies would be possible without the numerous supporting actors and extras who make up this galaxy of strange and exotic creatures and droids. That's where the new documentary Elstree 1976 comes in.

Elstree 1976 promises to go behind the masks, and explore beneath the helmet. The tag line promises: Big People. Small Roles. But as you'll soon discover, there is no role too small that doesn't deserve its own action figure. USA Today has a new look at »
