Why Spaceballs is the Star Wars spoof we need

14 February 2017 12:20 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Andrew Blair Feb 15, 2017

As the Epic Movie team announce they have Star Wars in their sights, might we have a chat about Mel Brooks' Spaceballs, amongst others?

Readers of this site may have read last week's news that there's to be a new Star Wars spoof. This film comes from the team who brought us Date Movie, Epic Movie, and apparently something called The Starving Games which blissfully passed me by. Jason Friedberg and Aaron Selzer make relatively cheap movies that, despite critical maulings, tend to make money at the box office. When I worked at a cinema, an eleven year old boy went to see Meet The Spartans three times, proclaiming it the best film he had ever seen.

The Week in Star Wars – The Last Jedi plot details, Mark Hamill defends prequels, Rogue One Blu-ray details and more

12 February 2017 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Week in Star Wars is back with some possible plot details from Star Wars: The Last Jedi as well as details on the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Blu-ray, Star Wars Land and more…

Let’s kick things off this week with Star Wars: The Last Jedi and although Josh Gad and Judi Dench have been unable to get answers about the mystery behind the title [see them try here and here], Disney’s Bob Iger has shed some light on the subject. After seeing an advanced screening of the movie, Iger said it was “a great chapter in the iconic Skywalker family saga”. Now, does this confirm that Rey is in fact Luke’s daughter, or is this a hint that Mark Hamill will be the focus of the film..?

…Speaking of Mark Hamill, the actor recently spoke out against the fans for bad-mouthing the prequel trilogy – particuarly around the performance of young Jake Lloyd. »

Every Single Epic Movie Sword Fight in a Single Montage

10 February 2017 3:23 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Sword fighting has always been a staple in movies. All the way back to the early 30s we’ve seen epic sword fights in cinema.  They carry an element of drama that other fights don’t have.  Not only are you looking at incredible choreography but the mental aspect of it is also at play.  In a sword fight there are no guns.  Right there it’s put in a more “manly” category.  You have the actual swords themselves which for people who love welding and sword making, it can bring a great element as well. Also, sword fighting is just more “personal”

Star Wars spoof movie coming from Epic Movie team

Simon Brew Feb 9, 2017

Star Worlds Episode Xxxive=MC2: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi Who Went Rogue goes into production this year.

Whenever the Golden Raspberry Awards roll around, it’s a continual disappointment that they tend to focus on big movies, sometimes ambitious ones, that failed for one reason or another. What they don’t tend to go for are genuinely awful films, such as the assortment of terrible spoofs from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. These include, but are not limited to, Epic Movie, Meet The Spartans and Vampires Suck.

Now, cheerily, Friedberg and Seltzer are turning their attention to Star Wars, with a spoof entitled Star Worlds Episode Xxxive=MC2: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi Who Went Rogue.

Yeah.

The film is set to shoot in the autumn, and in the words of financier Covert Media’s Paul Hanson, “Jason and Aaron are a »

The duo behind Epic Movie & Meet the Spartans turn their sights to Star Wars

8 February 2017 3:40 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

After winning some goodwill as two of the half-dozen screenwriters responsible for Scary Movie, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer spent the next seventeen years turning that success into a series of increasingly terrible parody movies such as Epic Movie, Meet The Spartans and Disaster Movie. The films were relatively cheap to produce and usually made their money back, which has kept the duo in business all this... Read More »
