Confirmed: STAR WARS Trilogies Headed For 3D Makeover

September 29, 2010

EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE will be the first of the 6 STAR WARS movies to be converted into 3D


Source: DailyMail.co.uk, ComingSoon.net

As previously posted on THRALL WORLD earlier this year, Lucas has been jonesing to upgrade the dual trilogies on the heels of the success of AVATAR.

Director and franchise owner George Lucas has confirmed all six [STAR WARS] films in the series will be converted into 3D.

Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace is expected to be released in 2012, with the rest to follow.

Then again, we all saw the mediocre after-the-fact 3D conversion of the CLASH OF THE TITANS remake. Lucasfilm seems aware of the potential for a let down:

“Getting good results on a stereo conversion is a matter of taking the time and getting it right,” said John Knoll, Visual Effects Supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic. “It takes a critical and artistic eye along with an incredible attention to detail to be successful. It is not something that you can rush if you want to expect good results. For Star Wars we will take our time, applying everything we know both aesthetically and technically to bring audiences a fantastic new Star Wars experience.”

RIDLEY SCOTT – New ALIEN Prequel Will Be “Really Nasty”

September 5, 2010

'ALIEN' Movie Poster circa 1979

Set 30 years before the 1979 original, so with no room for Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley, the prequels will explore the origins of the deadly aliens.

“The film will be really tough, really nasty,” [RIDLEY SCOTT] notes. “It’s the dark side of the moon. We are talking about gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would go in and clean up a planet?”

Word on the street is that this is a 2-part pair of prequels, both of which Ridley Scott will be involved with.

ROBERT RODRIGUEZ’s ‘MACHETE’ Update: 4 Character Spots Posted

August 24, 2010

'MACHETE'


ComingSoon.net




20th Century Fox has set a September 3 release date for Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis’ Machete, starring Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, Don Johnson and Steven Seagal. Labor Day falls on Monday, Sept. 6, which gives the movie a four-day opening weekend.

The feature version of the trailer finds Machete (Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.

‘STAR WARS’ In 3D? GEORGE LUCAS “Very Interested” In Upgrading All Six Movies

April 19, 2010

'STAR WARS' Movie Poster


Source: IGN.com

Not too big of a stretch considering the AVATAR 3D experience was so successful financially. No specifics on when as of yet.

“George [Lucas] has publicly expressed an interest in doing Star Wars 3D. Right now there are a number of different technologies, there’s some criticism out there about some of the movies that have quickly changed to 3D, so you have to pick the right technology, you have to get it to a cost that makes sense, and you have to have the time of the director and producer — George — to actually go in there, because you can’t push a button and stuff goes in one end and comes out 3D…

“Saying all that, George remains very interested in doing the Star Wars movies, all six, in 3D, and I hope it will happen someday in the not too distant future.”
