Generally speaking, the idea of a teaser trailer for a porn film quite frankly occurs to me as something like putting wheels on an ice-cream. Entirely unnecessary. Because all you need to push in order to sell delicious filth to me is the fact that there’s boobs in it. There, simple, Sold!
But with Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody those rules are there to be bent, because even without the Q&A, that film is an event in itself. Made by Axel Braun, who has some serious geek credentials behind him by the look of this teaser and what we’ve heard so far on the project, it is an affectionate porn parody like nothing that has come before. Pun completely intended.
So here it is, a month before release – the official teaser trailer…
Rember also to check out the interview we did with Grand Moff Tarkin aka Eli...
Ever since someone got the bright idea of animating a light-saber into that fat jedi kid video the trend has established itself as something of a regular feature on the video sharing site. If we’re perfectly honest, the situation has got a little out of hand lately, and its been fairly done to death.
But perseverance is a wonderful thing, and just when you think you’ve enjoyed your last light-saber duel, something like this pops up to side-swipe you and reinvigorate the sub-genre again.
It all seems to have escalated from a road rage incidence in rural France, with a fairly drunk looking tractor driver taking out his aggression first on his enemy’s car and then on his body. What ensures, with a little animation magic, is a beautiful...
Lego Star Wars has a lot to answer for when it comes to fan-made Star Wars films. Thanks to the accessibility of the medium, and the fact that the internet has somewhat unfortunately made everyone with a camera believe they’re an auteur, there are roughly a million youtube videos featuring the iconic plastic toys, and about 98% of them are unwatchable trash.
Praise be to Jabba’s Belly then for those members of that sorry 2% who make it through the net and into my lap, because they can be genuinely brilliant pieces of work, like the following two films, posted by Dzine123, which offer an irreverent and hyper-speed version of both Star Wars trilogies to date. They’ve been around for a while now, but they’re still just about the most awesome thing I’ve seen in a while.
And then there’s the Prequels…
Dzine123 is already something of a legend in fan-made Star Wars film-making, and can boast probably the most impressive Lego Star Wars...
More impressive poster based shenanigans have come to my attention from Design You Trust, who have posted (via artist Matt Ranzetta) three mash-up posters melding classic movies with a Star Wars flavour.
The posters, based on three of the most iconic films of modern cinematic history are each an accomplishment of simplicity and observation, and the artist deserves a hearty pat on the back for pulling them out of his clever head.
Ranzetta actually released the posters, including the two further additions I have included below back in 2010 to huge acclaim, and thanks to the response, actually released both prints and T-shirts based on all five designs. Do yourself a favour, try and get your hands on at least a couple.
As promised, here are the other two posters that make up the...
Not content with bringing one iconic hero of American cinema, Captain America director Joe Johnston has his eye set on another, even more awesome figure for another upcoming project. Boba Fett. That’s if he can convince George Lucas to get on board.
I’ll let that sink in.
Just imagine for one minute the possibility of a spin-off of arguably the cult character of the entire franchise (alongside Darth Maul perhaps), playing out like a sort of Die Hard meets Dog The Bounty Hunter. And while I don’t have great faith in Johnston’s directorial abilities (aside from his early work on Jumanji and The Page Master) – he made The Wolfman remember – he does already have experience directing jet-packed superheroey type folk thanks to his time helming 1991′s overlooked gem Rocketeer.
In conversation with ScreenRant, Johnston admitted his intentions:
“I’m trying to get George to make a feature based on Boba Fett… I would like to,...
