Consequence of Sound reports that the latest Episode VII trailer will be shown at the Star Wars Celebration convention in mid-April and then attached to Age of Ultron just a few weeks later during its release. Even if we don’t get a bootlegged/Periscoped/YouTubed version between those two dates, at the very least we’ll all get the see the trailer when we see Age of Ultron. Because we’re all seeing Age of Ultron. A lot.
I confess. I am obsessed with all things Episode 7. To the point that this ten question interview with Andy Serkis that gives absolutely NO new info gets coverage. What did Andy
not say about the upcoming installment of the greatest movie series ever?
I was hoping when I heard Ex Machina, that it was the Brian K Vaughn comic series that was being adapted. This is not that series, but it looks damn good. Blur your eyes, and it is a Blade Runner prequel starring a pair of Episode 7 actors: Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleason. The trailer, after the click, got me interested in this project really fast when it which dropped this week.
Epsiode 7, the first Disney produced Star Wars movie since the $4B buyout of Lucasfilm, is set to drop in December. That is really only the beginning of Disney’s master plan to s
queeze every nickle out of leverage the brilliance of the Star Wars universe. As expected, hoped for, and dreamed of, Disney plans to make their theme parks home to even more Star Wars attractions.
I was just discussing with Ryan that despite being due out next year, we had NO info on the first Star Wars standalone movie other than it was set to premiere December 2016 and was being directed by Gareth Edwards. But today we can say we know…well we KNOW nothing, but how about some rumors?
When Disney absorbed Lucas’s Empire (heh), they shuttered Lucasgames and we felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if unemployed programmers suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. The Mouse rolled those responsibilities into Disney’s gaming division; which is common in mergers and acquisitions. Nothing worse than redundancy besides calling human beings redundancies…
Back when George Lucas was making the sequels to Star Wars (the original one), he was able to keep a lot of things secret simply by filming under an alternate title like Blue Harvest (which sounds like the title of a 90’s era softcore porn thriller starring Shannon Tweed). Today, with the interwebs, camera phones, and the hula hoop all the rage, it has gotten a lot harder! Time to bring in the lawyers!!!!
The excellent team at Schmoesknow dropped a great story on Episode 7 featuring three martial artists and a stunt coordinator from the Raid 2 in the film. Meaning we could get to see some sweet moves; hopefully with lightsabers!
The trio is also linked to Andy Serkis somehow in possible motion capture. This rumor, if true (and the SK team are solid), get our blood moving!
Lucas would have had them be the trade ferderation we’re guessing.
