Movies: Remakes, superheroes and trailers

Forget the Potterdammrung: Footloose and Bill and Ted remakes? This can’t end well.




TV show hints from an unlikely source

AICN has a tidbit regarding the upcoming Clone Wars 3-D show from musician Eric Riegler:

The EmCee introduced Eric, and said Eric had just finished recording some music for the Star Wars TV Series. I followed up with Eric during the intermission, and he told me the following: Yes, he did in fact record music for the series. Each of the planets has its own theme, and the one he was brought in to develop music for was patterned after Bulgaria. So, his music was patterned after an instrument (I think he called it a gaeda (spelling?), a bagpipe-like instrument played there), although he performed his music on the Irish Pipes. He said it looked amazing, and Lucas had done an incredible job of the look/feel of at least what he saw.

He also said he was told the series/his episode would be airing Summer, 2008.

X-Files movie rumors, again

Gillian Anderson says to Empire: “They’re starting to talk about doing a feature again. Every year or two they talk about it again, but it seems like it might be for real this time. Somehow it seems like somebody’s really serious about it. I know that Chris’ lawsuit with Fox is over, so maybe now it can be done.”

I want to believe (especially since she talks about it being more like a stand-alone episode where, in retrospect, the series was often strongest) but is it too little, too late? Or, with 80’s nostalgia is so hot right now, is it too soon to revisit the 90’s?
