I liked Alien 3!
I like the Assembly Cut. But regardless of liking it/not liking it, the incredibly rushed production so that the studio could hit a release date - they started shooting without a finished script - was a terrible situation to work under for a major production. The film probably could have worked better if they had time to actually hammer out the story details before being required to shoot.
They could save production time by shooting digital 3D instead of shooting film, developing the film, scanning the film, and post-converting to 3D.
The release date has been bumped to December 18, 2015.
I was happy seeing them dive in and just get it down (pressure can be good sometimes) but if 6 or 7 months results in a better movie, I'm good with that too.
No Fox logo or fanfare, and now no May 25th release date. This is going to be a little weird to us old school fans.
I'm thrilled with it. In Summer 2015 it would have been just another blockbuster, but now it can have the Christmas season all to itself. I've always associated Star Wars with Christmas anyway, for some reason. Now we get Hobbit movies this December and next, and Star Wars the December after that. Good times.
So long as the movie isn't a giant lump of coal, I can live with it.
The last Hobbit film will be released July 18 2014
That was the original announcement when they split it into 3 films, but I'm reasonably (as in 99.99999% sure) they pushed the last movie back to December. Which I'm glad for....a 6 month turnaround was way too fast for the amount of FX that will likely be in the movie.
You're right Steven. It has been moved to December 17 2014. I like them in December too
I can't really believe this is an issue but:
Why would fans expect the Fox fanfare and logo before the new films? Disney, for all intents and purposes, rescued the Star Wars series and is bringing it back to the big screen. Their logo deserves to be the first thing audiences see. I would not like to see the original six films have the Fox logo replaced, but going forward, it should be Disney.
The Fox fanfare has long been part of the Star Wars experience. It was even included on some of the soundtrack releases. The Disney logo is never going to give us old fogey fans the same level of goosebumps we got back in the day, but I won't mind too much if the movie is good.
Rescued from whom?
From George Lucas of course.
So, JJ Abrams says he and Kasdan had to take over writing in order to meet Disney's deadline of a release date. Meanwhile, Bob Iger says they moved the picture to Dec '15 instead of spring/summer in part because of the new writing team.
Seems like both sides don't have their story straight.
The writing thing worries me. Was the story pure gold, and Abrams/Kasdan just polishing it into a screenplay. Was it deemed garbage by the Disney execs and now being quickly rewritten? Was the original writer fired? My apologies if I overlooked the answer in an earlier post, but all the he said, she said stuff drives me crazy. I stopped reading them after the first conflicting statement.
Regarding the December release date. I like Christmas time Star Wars....but it feels off. Push it to May of 2016.
Is this real?
Have to guess it's not since there isn't any talk about a poster release on the news part of a search.
^ No, it must be a fan poster.
There have been a ton of fan posters that range from being really cool to really bad.
Maybe well see an official poster a year or so from now, maybe a year and a half.
The URL of the artist is on the poster.
I would hope Luke is still sporting something like his black outfit from ROTJ in the movie. There's no reason he has to start dressing like Obi Wan.
