Upcoming “Clone Wars” is CGI pilot for T.V. Show

Clone Wars posterI stumbled across the theatrical trailer for computer-animated “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” today.  This movie, set for an August 15 theatrical release, takes place in between “Star Wars” episodes two and three. I’m sure that will make us privvy to plenty of Anakin Skywalker angst.  Hooray…

I also disovered that this movie is effectively the pilot for the upcoming animated T.V. series of the same name.

Below is a link to an interview with Lucasfilm’s Steve Sansweet, in which he discusses not only “Clone Wars,” but also the upcoming live-action “Star Wars” television series. - NYCC 08: Lucasfilm Interview


“G.I. Joe” Boasts All-Star Cast

Posted in Uncategorized on May 12, 2008 by Drew

As I was frantically scouring the web, trying to find a viable topic for this beloved blog of mine, I ran across a publicity photo that immediately sent nostalgia running rampant in my veins. The photo was for the upcoming film adaptation of “G.I. Joe.”

Apparently, this movie is way into production. IMDB still lists it as “filming” but there are at least 12 photos of cast members in full costume circling around, and there is also a set release date: August 7, 2009.

I’m not sure how this one slipped under my radar, especially considering the cast. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Brendan Fraser and Dennis Quaid are just a few of the stars we can expect to see. Hopefully, this film will be a bigger summer smash than “Speed Racer” is shaping up to be.
