Reports Jurassic World Teaser Trailer Pushed Back


It's by no means official but according to an insider who claims to be in the know, the trailer for Jurassic World has been pushed back from what many were saying was going to be shown during the release of Interstellar.  Now it seems we will have to wait until The Hobbit 3 is released on December 17th.
"I just got word that the theatrical trailer has been pushed back to debut with The Hobbit.  This is for strategic reasons and not because of any actual delay with getting it ready.  Universal is choosing to debut the Fast 7 trailer on Interstellar instead.  Whether or not they still choose to debut it online in November, I have no idea."

All good things come to those who wait.

George Lucas Talks Fantasy Cinema in TCM's Latest A Night at the Movies Documentary


George Lucas Talks Fantasy Cinema in
TCM's Latest A Night at the Movies Documentary

One-Hour Special to Explore Fantasy Films that Inspired Lucas' Career

As excitement continues to build over the new trilogy in the Star Wars franchise, the man who created it – George Lucas – is going to take Turner Classic Movies (TCM) viewers on a ride through some of the movies that have sparked his imagination and inspired his career. This November, Lucas will talk extensively about his fantasy favorites in the one-hour special TCM Presents A Night at the Movies: George Lucas & The World of Fantasy Cinema, the latest in the network's ongoing series of genre documentaries. Produced by Amblin Television and award-winning filmmaker and author Laurent Bouzereau, the one-hour special will premiere Tuesday, Nov. 25, at 8 p.m. (ET).



George Lucas & The World of Fantasy Cinema will kick off a 24-hour salute to fantasy movies, with such memorable films as The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947), The Thief of Bagdad (1940), The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao (1964) and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958). A complete schedule is included below. Each of these films represents the power of cinema to transport us into a world of dreams.



TCM launched the A Night at the Movies franchise in October 2009 with A Night at the Movies: The Suspenseful World of Thrillers. Subsequent specials have focused on movie epics, horror films and holiday classics. TCM's A Night at the Movies documentary specials are executive-produced by Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey (TNT's Falling Skies).



TCM recently released its first volume of original specials from A Night at the Movies on home video. Sold exclusively through TCM's online store – shop.tcm.com – TCM Originals: A Night at the Movies, Vol. 1 includes four memorable specials: The Suspenseful World of Thrillers (2009), The Gigantic World of Epics (2009), Merry Christmas! (2011) and The Horrors of Steven King (2011).



Laurent Bouzereau, who writes, produces and directs TCM's A Night at the Movies specials, is an award-winning filmmaker and author. Bouzereau has created many documentaries on the making of films and on some of the world's most acclaimed filmmakers, including Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Peter Bogdanovich, Brian De Palma, William Friedkin, Alfred Hitchcock, David Lean, and many others. Bouzereau directed Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir and the TCM original documentary Don't Say No Until I Finish Talking: The Story of Richard D. Zanuck. He has also written or co-written 11 books on cinema, including The Art of Bond and, most recently, Alfred Hitchcock: Piece by Piece.

The Opening of Star Wars VII...Maybe

star wars logo


A fan has put together the Walt Disney, Bad Robot and Lucasfilm opening.  It may just look like this in December 2015.

I've seen other fan edits but I wanted to make one that works better musically. I slowed down the Disney music and combined it with Evan Goldman's orchestration (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0zZg...) so that it'd be in the same key as John Williams' opening music. This gives it a similar effect to the 20th Century Fox fanfare that we're all used to. I also timed the Disney castle intro, an abridged Bad Robot title, and the modern Lucasfilm title to align better with the music.

Oscar-Nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno To Join Falling Skies


The Oscar-nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno is set to join the cast of the Spielberg executive produced alien invasion show, Falling Skies.  Moreno is going to have a recurring role in the final season of Falling Skies and will play Isabella, an academic before the invasion and now on the run and seeking somewhere to just settle down so to speak.
She is a realist and canny survivor who poses as a nurse in order to win John (Colin Cunningham) approval and trust. Moreno currently recurs on Fox’s Red Band Society. Her other TV credits include FX’s The Bridge. On the film side, she’ll next be seen in upcoming A Most Violent Year and Incarnate.
