Good thing that Star Wars is exactly like that too, then.
Harrison is the rare exception cause...he's Harrison Ford..the elderly bad ass. Thats a reason upon it self. Carrie and Hamill on the other hand...they're a rollar coaster. Some pics they look good other times they look horrible. I hope for the sequel trilogy they can look goodso the sequel trilogy can be one big ensemble of gorgeousness
Just found this quote from Empire's review of STID:
"Of course, Abrams will next tackle Star Wars, and it is tempting to overanalyse Into Darkness for clues to Episode VII. Abrams clearly prefers proper sets to green-screens, doesn’t shy from men in suits and old-school in-camera trickery, fosters lovely grace-notes to stellar ILM work — look out for the new trails of space dust that follow warp speed — and gives good running down corridors. If he just takes his time and lets his patent skill with characters breathe, he’ll make The Empire Strikes Back. Given the evidence here, 2015 can’t come soon enough."
A little too much praise for the guy imo.
I hope he takes his time with story progression in Star Wars as in the new Trek sometimes it was hard to really immerse yourself as everything was so fast paced. Same with Alias, a show in which everything was as speedy as possible.
Imo Star Wars is more suited for a slower stile akin to the old planet of the ape movies. There was nothing fast in the beginning of ANH but many things still managed to take our breath away due to sheer "presence", like the shot of the Star Destroyer firing upon the Rebel frigate or Vaders epic entrance.
I hope everything is slow like Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
Really? I loved the pace of the new Trek.
Thats funny, because when Star Wars came out everyone thought the pace was breakneck. Funny how times change.
I hope it's slow like "The assasination of Jessie James by the coward Robert Ford"
I hope it's terrible like "The Assimulation of Jessie James by his Cow Robert Redford".
Article from bbc website:
JJ Abrams: Star Wars a 'once in a lifetime opportunity'
ZOMG!!! "ONCE IN A LIFETIME" IS CONFURMASHUN THAT HE IS ONLY DIRECTING ONE EPISODEZ IN HIS LIFETIME!!!!1!!!1!!!
I love what he says about the practical sets. Here's hoping we get more practicality in SW7
Again with the reboot talk. Aaargh, Star Wars is not being rebooted!
Agreed. Stop talking about Reboot ... it's been years and it's not coming back
Slow day today.
Abrams doesn't have to worry about being known as a reboots guy, Episode VII is a sequel not a reboot.
He's done ONE reboot. ONE.
Not even an actual reboot. An alternate timeline in the same overall multiverse/continuity. It features a character from the earlier films and shows - not a rebooted version of that character, the same person.
Actual reboots don't have that.
I wonder if he'll put the name Kelvin into the film and where. The name of a ship, the name of a character, the name of a club, maybe Chewie's first victim. I'm surprised this hasn't been discussed in five different threads all ready. It's important...
I would agree that Star Trek 2009 isn't a reboot because you watch it after the events of TNG. That's when old Spock "allows" Romulus to be destroyed and ends up being stuck in an alternative reality. It's a strange sort of sequel if anything.
Is 'Kelvin' a thing? besides a measurment of temprature?
It's the name of J.J. Abrams grandfather and he uses it in some way in all his films.
It's the name of JJ Abrams's grandfather (in Star Trek, 2009 the first Federation ship on screen was called the USS Kelvin which was fitting). Abrams includes the name in his various television- and movie projects.
No it's a homage to Calvin and Hobbes, but JJ forgot Calvin's name.
