polish posters

Polish movie posters have a huge fan base from movie fans thanks mainly to their unique interpretation of famous movies.  Most of these movies were released during the communist-era so the artists of the communist run countries had to take on their own interpretation of the movie that would make it pleasing to the authorities of the time.  What we get is a huge range of original poster artwork for some of the most famous movies of all time.

Over the next two days The Bearded Trio will bring you some of the best Polish movie posters relating to Steven Spielberg and George Lucas.  Today we're going to run with a Steven Spielberg theme.

Back in 1979, this piece of music confused me a lot. 

It accompanied a film, The Deer Hunter, I watched over and over again because of the great acting of Christopher Walken, Rober DeNiro, John Cazale and Meryl Streep (plus the rest of the cast of course). but the thing that puzzled me the most was the fact that although the composer of this piece of (great) music bore the same name as the one who had scored Jaws and Close Encounters, he was a totally different person. (a similar thing happened a few years later when the film Mad Max was released and I found out that the music had been composed by Brian May, not the Brian May of Queen (of course), but again, that also took some time for me to find out)

Nowadays all it takes is checking on Google, but in those (prehistoric) days we mostly relied on encyclopedia and they didn't always have stills in them, so it took a while, but in the end I found out there can be more than one.

Here is a live version by (that other) John Williams himself.

Harrison Ford Heads To The Spielbergs After Hospital Stay

It seems one of the first places Harrison Ford visited after leaving hospital yesterday was the home of his pal, Steven Spielberg.

An eyewitness told E! News that the Ford was driving around the Pacific Palisades before arriving at Steven Spielberg's house!

"Harrison was driving his Tesla and seemed to be in good spirits. He was wearing a hat so there weren't any visible signs of wounds on his head," the source tells us. "He was by himself but able to drive his car normally...He arrived at Steven Spielberg's house in the late afternoon and went straight through the gate," the eyewitness adds. "He was there for many hours and stayed all through the evening. He went home after 10 p.m."

A brand-new TV spot for Jurassic World debuted over the weekend (I happened to catch it during the season finale of The Walking Dead). Most of it is footage we've seen already, but there were a few brief glimpses that were new to me. Check it out for yourself below:



Jurassic World hits theaters on June 12. We're almost there!

Artist: Joe Maccy: "Went through some old boxes with school books from back in the 80's, and sure enough, there was drawing allover them. Must have seen "Indiana Jones and the Tempel of Doom" and it had to have made an impression on my for sure grin-emoticon I can't understand people who don't like the second film, I love it!"

Maisie Williams, well-known to fans of Game of Thrones fans as Arya Stark, will be joining the crew of the TARDIS when she guest stars on an upcoming episode of Doctor Who.

"I'm so excited to be working on Doctor Who as it's such a big and important part of British Culture. I can't wait to meet the cast and crew and start filming, especially as we'll be shooting not too far from my home town," said Williams.
Steven Moffat had this to say about the show's latest guest star:

"We're thrilled to have Maisie Williams joining us on Doctor Who. It's not possible to say too much about who or what she's playing, but she is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways. This time he might just be out of his depth, and we know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell."
Well, I'm on board! It sounds like she's going to be memorable character.

Doctor Who is currently filming series 9, which is set to air some time this fall.

In the meantime, you can see Maisie in the new season of Game of Thrones, which premieres on HBO April 12.

One of the many Indiana Jones Fan-films that can be found on YouTube these days.
This one however features a very young cast just as was the case in the early Spielberg films.

(And, since I'm Dutch, I love the fact that Indy even uses a bike during one of his chases.)

Today we celebrate the 72nd birthday of the Greek Composer and Performer Evangelos Odysseus Papathanassiou, or, as we have come to know him: Vangelis.
As a self thought musician, he can't read or write notes, Vangelis has been composing music since the early age of four.
Starting of as a performer, who worked almost solely with electronic music instruments, he worked a lot with fellow musician John Anderson. Since the mid 60's he also delivered film-scores for (mostly) Greek films and documentaries. That changed however when he started working on international films at the end of the 70's.


In 1981 he won the Academy Award for the music he composed for the British drama Charriots of Fire and this marked his launch as an international wanted composer.


In the next few years he delivered the scores for Costa Gavras' gripping drama Missing, followed by Ridley Scott's Blade Runner.



Nowadays his main focus lies with documentaries, but lots of filmmakers gladly make use of his musical library. DreamWorks gladly used his theme from Charriots of Fire in both the feature Old School as well as in the the animated smash Madagascar.

Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx in Collateral

Director Michael Mann used the theme Moxica & His Horse, which was written and performed by Vangelis himself, for his thriller Collateral.
For someone who claims not being able to read or write music, that's guite an accomplishment, I think


And for those who are not familliair with his Academy Award Winning score for Charriots of Fire, watch it below.



Happy Birthday Vangelis.

Ronny.

It’s one of the most iconic and engaging opening sequences in movie history, firmly establishing Indiana Jones, George Lucas, and Steven Spielberg as blockbuster forces to be reckoned with. SUBSCRIBE: http://goo.gl/9AGRm

Indiana Jones wouldn’t occupy his place in our collective consciousness were it not for this scene. The soundtrack, cinematography, production design and special effects all came together in a spectacular sequence that established an enduring character in cinematic history. We’ll take you though the scene’s backstory, telling you about the contributions of Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and the film’s entire creative team.
