Unlike the first one, this trailer does indeed use the film’s final title.
And here’s Dennis Muren on thoughtful effects:
Interviews. The December release date is “an infinitely better situation” and a “huge improvement” J.J. Abrams tells MTV’s Josh Horowitz. When asked if the Artoo casting means C-3P0: “They have different agents.” He also talked about London and Kasdan with Total Film.
Casting. The Hollywood Reporter spun something out about big movies that are casting at the moment. They mention the ‘Rachel’ and ‘Thomas’ roles, but also “a 40-something military man a la Matt Damon in Elysium.” Comparing the role to Damon is new, but we heard about the part way back in the original June casting breakdown.
Video. Fan-created trailer The Apprentice.
The retro interviews move on from Lucas to Dennis Muren, who talks about the challenges of the Return of the Jedi VFX.
For sure this time!
In this weekend’s vintage video, George talks about his decisions regarding Obi-Wan Kenobi, Chewbacca and the Ewoks.
All I’m gonna say is: If you’re a Doctor Who fan, you’ve got to watch this prequel mini-episode to the 50th Anniversary special
Flashback. Our second retro Return of the Jedi teaser trailer – or the first, if you don’t count Revenge of the Jedi.
Episode VII: David Oyelowo addresses the Star Wars rumors with E!. “The breaking news is J.J. Abrams is going to give you that breaking news,” he said. But… “I’d go anywhere to work with J.J. Abrams. I think what he did with Star Trek was so extraordinary… And I think what he’ll do with Star Wars will be just as impressive.”
And the parade continues with the first full trailer for Divergent, an adaptation of one of the more successful post-apocalyptic YA novels that followed in the wake of The Hunger Games. The poster, again, is below.
