Lucas' rules say that the film must stay at least 8-9 weeks in the same huge high quality audio stadiums
The really sad part is that more and more we see Hollywood slipping in political propoganda (sp?) that this is credible.
I got my advance ticket on 4/25/05 SW geek here!
There are some places showing the whole previous 5 films!
That would be cool to see...From 1 to 6 all in one sequence. I am sure a lot of puzzling pieces will fall into place.
It should. RotK sucked big time. I actually nodded off during the cheesy, unneccessary last hour. Awful.
This works out great, since I get off work at 11pm.
How many more screens, how much more promotion, and how much more expensive was the film?
People had to rent out theaters to get some of them to even book Passion of the Christ. I don't think anyone had to bend a theater owner's arm to get him to book Star Wars 6.
I agree. I am not anticipating seeing this movie, but I must, since I have a 10-year-old who is in full SW Geek Mode right now. I'll have to go preview it before he can see it. IMO, Lucas jumped the shark with the Ewoks and finished it off with Jar-Jar Binks. Stick a fork in it. It's dead.
Actually its the other way around. GL wants theaters to upgrade their equipment to digital quality. If GL had his way only digital theaters would be showing his movie.
GL was quoted recently and GL actually prefers you see the films in the order they were released. IV, V, VI and then I, II and III.
I'm sure Hillary is laughing too. I wonder what percentage of the take will end up financing her 2008 campaign?
Remember the source..a "French-American aspiring filmmaker" and sadly enough this review will be repeated by the liberal press here in the US..wait and see.
It seems only by the radical right wing. Its been getting decent reviews in the big liberal rags.
I have been following the Cannes Film Festival since it began watching for this type of rhetoric. Has been calm so far. Of course the real interviews have not started yet! Remember the Jessica Lange anti-Bush interview/video a few years ago? Lange is back there again in Broken Flowers with Bill Murray and Sharon Stone scheduled to open here in August.
I have just been keeping an eye on the Cannes.
It definitely will do well at the box office; and rightly so.
I know where you are coming from. I fell in love with the OT when I was a kid and nothing can ever top them, but regardless how relatively poor the prequels have been, I have learned to enjoy them. To me it has become all about the endless story. I've started reading the books, including the adaptation from the ROTS screenplay, and with all of the characters, their stories, and the way they all fit together--the movies have just become a formality for me. I know and love the story, and I'm not going to let stiff acting, corny lines, or Jar Jar interfere with that. But as I say, I completley understand your point of view.
Awesome! It's so much fun to see it with all the hard-core fans at the first showing.
