Vanity Fair isn’t the only magazine borrowing some Star Wars mojo this month. Wired today has ‘the definitive oral history of ILM,’ with George Lucas, Kathleen Kennedy, Steven Spielberg, Dennis Muren and more. (Including J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson.)
I think he needs more whiskey. Let’s take up a collection. (Via the nutcases of #eu.)
ABC News rediscovers the Star Wars Holiday Special. In the realm of the slightly less awful, Nathan Rabin of The Onion’s A.V. Club revisits rat-tails and Howard the Duck.
Cinematical has seven really, really bad films for you to watch for the holiday, headed up by Howard the Duck. Personally, turkey day just hasn’t been the same since Mystery Science Theatre 3000 bit it.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire broke Spider-Man’s Friday release record.
Peter Jackson is trying to get director’s credits for two of King Kong‘s lead animators.
See a clip from The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe.
Fan of the Arthurian legends? Check out the trailer for Tristan and Isolde. Sadly, the trailer contains an Evancesance song, but the movie does star James Franco (Spider-Man) and the smokin’ hot Rufus Sewell (A Knight’s Tale) so there’s hope. I have the sinking feeling that I’m going to come out of this one wanting to smack Isolde, though. (But hey, what’s new?)
And finally, I thought a new X-Files movie was a long shot… Now there’s a slim chance for the show’s David Lynch helmed precursor Twin Peaks to get another shot at the big screen. (Fire Walk With Me, a prequel to the series, died a quick death back in 1992.)
