FilmLook at 25: Company Evolves From Mimics To Maestros

17 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Back in 1989, when videotape was king in TV production and post, filmmaker-engineer Robert A. Faber invented a process called FilmLook — manipulating video to make it appear more like film by mimicking film’s gray scale, contrast, grain and frame rate (24 frames per second instead of video’s 30fps).

“We ran into a lot of opposition,” recalls Faber. “People who were involved in film-shot television thought we were sacrilegious.” But in 1992 the TV Academy recognized FilmLook with a plaque for Achievement in Engineering Development, and the process found a market in TV productions that wanted a cinematic feel.

Today the original FilmLook process is defunct, but the company is changing with the times. “There’s still a perception that the only service we offer is making video look like film, but we’re a full-service post house,” Faber says.

With digital cameras supplanting both film and videotape, Faber sees the 24fps look surviving and thriving. »

'Star Wars' likely returning to Tatooine for 'Episode VII' shoot

11 April 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tatooine may be pretty far from the bright center of the universe, but the desert world will reportedly continue to be important to the "Star Wars" galaxy. J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Episode VII" will head to the Middle East in May, where Abu Dhabi will stand in for Luke Skywalker's home planet, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The United Arab Emirates city-state is reportedly replacing Tunisia, where the Tatooine scenes from the previous "Star Wars" films were shot. The report claims that the switch was made due to the ongoing political instability in the North African country.  Universal's "Fast & Furious 7" is also currently shooting in Abu Dhabi, after resuming production earlier this month.  Tatooine was a major setting in the original 1977 film, 1983's "Return of the Jedi" and 1999's "The Phantom Menace," while both "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith" also had pivotal scenes take place there. »

'Star Wars' Set Of Tatooine Town Mos Espa In Tunisia Facing Destruction

10 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The Tunisian dessert set of Mos Espa, built to be Anakin Skywalker’s hometown on Tatooine in the Star Wars films, is on its way to being destroyed by encroaching sand dunes.

Anakin Skywalker's Hometown: Popular Tourist Attraction

The Tatooine settlement was originally built for the filming of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999). The Mos Espa settlement was also featured in Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002), but has not been used since. However, the Tunisian government has kept Darth Vader’s birthplace in tact as a popular tourist attraction.

Mos Espa consists of about 20 brown buildings spread around 10,000 square meters north of Tozeur, Tunisia. The desert’s sand dunes have already buried a reported 10 percent of the city, and officials have started an Indiegogo fundraiser online in the hopes that Star Wars fans will donate money to keep the sets in tact.

Star Wars: 10 things you never knew about the galaxy far, far away

8 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Filming is about to commence on Star Wars: Episode VII, Jj Abrams's hotly-anticipated sequel that picks up the story 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi.

With almost 40 years of history - encompassing films, TV, comic books, video games and novels - there's a wealth of interesting facts and information about the vast universe hatched by George Lucas.

Here are ten fast facts we've discovered from a galaxy far, far away…

1. Inspired by the swashbuckling Flash Gordon adventures that began in the '30s, a young George Lucas initially wanted to bring that serial to the big screen, but found the rights to the character difficult to untangle. From there he began to fashion his own space epic - a project that would eventually become the Star Wars we know and love.

However, things could have been a lot different as Lucas's first draft script was »

8 Reasons We Should Be Nervous About Star Wars 7

2 April 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

A few years ago, pretty much every Star Wars fan had resigned themselves to the fact that there would probably never be another episode in the long-going saga, many of whom felt relieved at the prospect. After the relative disaster that was George Lucas’s decision to go back and tell the untold story of Darth Vader through three very ill-judged prequel movies (okay, two and a half) it seemed like a good idea to put Star Wars to bed in its entirety – if we closed our eyes and tried really, really hard, we could forget that Attack of the Clones was ever a thing that existed. Right?

Then, out of the blue, an announcement came that George Lucas had decided to sell the rights to Star Wars – and all of the other brands and franchises associated with Lucasfilm, including one Indiana Jones – to Disney. This was followed by an »

8 Great TV Shows That Would Have Had Incredible Prequels

22 March 2014 4:24 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

AMC

Some believe that prequels are rarely a good idea; just ask any disgruntled Star Wars fan who turned their nose up at Attack Of The Clones, and they’ll probably have a list prepared as to why. Look out for the name “Jar Jar Binks” scribbled down three times.

Prequels are rarer in television though; the last notable one on British TV was probably Rock And Chips, the story of a young Del Boy before Only Fools And Horses, which was met with an overwhelming “Meh,” from fans and critics a-like, and Breaking Bad fans are currently holding their breath over the plans for Better Call Saul. The parent show ended so perfectly, after all: but what will the spin-off be like?

It’s a shame really that prequels tend to be so hit and miss because they offer fantastic opportunities and, at the very least, talking points for speculation. »

19 March 2014 4:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Finally some Star Wars: Episode VII news! Not terribly surprising news mind you. But at the rate it's been coming we'll take anything won't we?

So then, lets get down to it. Here's the news from StarWars.com...

"Disney and Lucasfilm are excited to announce that principal photography on Star Wars: Episode VII, directed by J.J. Abrams, will commence May 2014, and will be based at London's historic Pinewood Studios.

‘Star Wars Episode VII’ Will Take Place 30 Years After ‘Return Of The Jedi’

19 March 2014 2:40 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’ve heard a lot of news, or should I rumours, revolving around Star Wars Episode VII, but there has been no solid, official releases from Lucasfilm and Disney of late, until now. StarWars.com posted an official release on the site late yesterday. A lot of the release was a timeline of the history of the first day of shooting on each of the films, but the last line of the release confirmed that Episode VII will be ‘set about 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, and will star a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces. No further details on casting or plot are available at this time.’

Will the familiar faces be that of Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker? The timeline fits with the ageing of the actors, but we’ll have to »

Official Star Wars: Episode VII News - Setting and Principal Photography

18 March 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Up until this point, most of what we’ve heard regarding Star Wars: Episode VII has been mere rumor or speculation. We all knew that with J.J. Abrams at the helm any details would be shrouded in secrecy, but this has been ridiculous. There still hasn’t been a single official casting announcement made — even for the expected return of the primary cast from the original trilogy. However, today two pieces of news have dropped straight from the house of Disney.

First off, Disney and Lucasfilm announced through their official Star Wars site that principal photography for Episode VII will begin in May. I’ve included the official announcement below, along with a timeline of all the start dates for the previous installments in the franchise.

The second piece of news comes straight from Disney CEO Bob Iger. Iger spoke at Disney’s annual shareholder meeting this morning and casually »

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 6 Starts Off With a Bang

12 March 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Netflix is flexing its muscles once again by bringing what has become known as Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Lost Missions to the millions of subscribers of their streaming services. If fans of "a Galaxy Far, Far Away" weren't already plugged into their services, I'm sure they are now. Not only has the company acquired the rights for the sixth season's thirteen episodes, but all five of the previous seasons which were originally only available through Cartoon Network and on Blu-ray and DVD.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars was thought to be one of the fatalities of the buy-out of Lucasfilm by Disney. However, it was recently announced that the show's final season would indeed hit TV and media devices and finish what it started back in 2008. I can tell fans who have been waiting in feverish anticipation that your wait hasn't been in vain.

Third Clip from 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' The Lost Missions

4 March 2014 2:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As fans get ready for the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars dubbed 'The Lost Missions,' debuting in its entirety on Netflix March 7, LucasFilm has released the third clip from an unspecified episode. This scene focuses on a clone soldier becoming afflicted by a mysterious illness, which leads to Commander Rex and Fives (both voiced by Dee Bradley Baker) taking him back to Kamino, where these clones were created in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, for medical treatment. This scene also features General Shaak Ti (voiced by Grey DeLisle), who hints that Fives may be infected as well. Take a look at this new footage, then read on for more information about Season 6.

USA Today reports that four of these last 13 episode center on the discovery of the missing Jedi Syfo-Dyas' light saber, which re-starts the investigation into his whereabouts. Liam Neeson also »

Review: ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Lands on Netflix

4 March 2014 12:01 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Star Wars” is always better when it leans toward its darker side, and that’s certainly true of the batch of “The Clone Wars” episodes, dubbed “The Lost Missions,” premiering exclusively on Netflix. A huge coup given the importance of fan passion in driving subscription enterprises, these episodes are more adult in tone than many past installments of the animated series, including an extended interlude that could easily be dubbed “The Last Temptation of Yoda.” Frankly, just trumpeting a “Star Wars” property is a win for the streaming service; to quote a certain green-hued sage, that the episodes are good, a happy accident, that is.

Animation — and particularly the half-hour format — has proved especially beneficial to this permutation of the “Star Wars” franchise, given the shortcomings (clunky writing, stiff performances, wonky dissertations about tariff policies) that tended to leech some of the fun out of George Lucas’ most recent film trilogy. »

Watch Topher Grace's 'Star Wars' Prequel Edit Trailer

28 February 2014 11:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

That '70s Show star Topher Grace wanted to learn how to edit film, so as an exercise, he took it upon himself to make a one-film cut with footage from the three Star Wars prequels, which includes Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. What resulted was an 85-minute sci-fi adventure that is lean, mean and has been quite enjoyed by those who've seen it. It was never meant to be released outside Topher Grace's circle of friends, but that might have changed after a couple years being asked repeatedly about it. We don't have a confirmed release date for Star Wars: Episode III.5, but we may finally get to see it as Topher has cut together and released a teaser trailer, which helps to remind fans why »

Forget Pixar, This 'E.T.' Theory Will Really Blow Your Mind

28 February 2014 4:35 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There are a number of "Star Wars" references in Steven Spielberg's "E.T." This was both a product of the time (it was produced in between "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi," at what was arguably the height of Jedi-mania) and a reference to the deeply felt friendship between "E.T." director Steven Spielberg and "Star Wars" creator George Lucas (the year before the two had teamed on minor art house hit "Raiders of the Lost Ark"). But thanks to a keen theorist on Reddit, which was picked up and expounded on by Buzzfeed (since Reddit and Buzzfeed are the ying and yang of pointless Internet time-wasting), a new theory has emerged... One that will blow your mind all over your office wall.

Basically the theory states that the E.T. aliens are part of the "Star Wars" galaxy because of their Easter Egg-y appearance in one of the senate »
