Even Vanity Fair is getting in on the The Force Unleashed action. I didn’t think video games existed in VF’s world. Alas, there’s no Annie Leibovitz delving into the halls of LucasArts here, but they do have exclusive images and a video.
Brand new Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull photo debuts (on print) Friday in the latest issue of Empire. You can check it out without all the extraneous junk over at StarWars.com, which also has behind-the-scenes video from Annie Leibovitz’s Vanity Fair photo shoot and the movie novelization cover.
ETA: And another!
Like a select few event movies before it, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is getting a sizable spread in Vanity Fair, with the requite Annie Leibovitz photo shoot. There’s also an online-only George Lucas Q&A where he talks quite a bit about Star Wars, including the differences between the two trilogies:
People who are over 40 love [Episodes] IV, V, and VI and hate I, II, and III. Younger people like I, II, and III and don’t like IV, V, and VI, or they like I, II, and III better and think IV, V, and VI are kind of boring and slow. And of course the older people say, “Oh, I, II, and III—it’s too jittery, too fast, too complicated, it’s too digital,” or whatever they want to say. But definitely one generation has grabbed hold of one of them, and the other generation has grabbed hold of the next one.
The magazine ought to be on newsstands now. (via)
ETA: i09 has a rebuttal to George’s comments on why we’ll hate Indy 4. Awww. It’s so cute when they’re young and innocent enough to believe in the great and generous nature of fandom-at-large when confronted with new things.
Can’t wait? Jedinet has high resolution scans of Vanity Fair‘s Revenge of the Sith cover story.
And TFN found a news item that claims the full trailer will be on March’s Clone Wars DVD. And the presale numbers spike.
The cover of the next “Vanity Fair” will feature Uncle George amidst the casts of all six movies. It hits newsstands on January 11th.
You can see the whole picture here (with some character spoilers). Um… wow!
