LucasArts celebrates the release of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 with an awesome cake

Since it’s a casual Saturday with nothing else going on, I thought that this was worth sharing with y’all especially in the wake of its impending release.  With the development on Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 being done and the game set to drop on retail shelves on Tuesday, the fine folks at LucasArts decided to have a party.  Even though their numbers may be few, it’s always nice to cap off the end of a project with a celebration and we all know that any celebration needs cake.
So with that being said, the LucasArts team probably got the coolest gaming/geek centric cake ever made: a crispy Stormtrooper.  A riff on how TFU2 hero Starkiller can turn Stormtrooper’s into nothing but ash, the cake is huge as hell and if I must say despite its somewhat gory influence, it looks quite delicious.  Awesome Star Wars cake complete with ash riddled Stormtrooper and ashy flakes of goodness = complete win.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 will be available next Tuesday and if you …

Just To Clear Up Those Indy 3D Rumours - They Are False

A few days ago we reported that the story going around that Indiana Jones is to be converted to 3D are false.  We just thought we would post it again because it seems the big news companies are now reporting out of date information.  A sudio source told movieline

“This is completely false. Right now, we are totally focused on bringing Star Wars to 3-D, and we have no plans to do an Indiana Jones conversion.”

http://www.thebeardedtrio.com/2010/10/indiana-jones-3d-rumours-are-false.html

To be honest I hope we get proved wrong and Indy comes back to the big screen.  I'll be there.  Watching Raiders on the big screen again would be an amazing opportunity.

He was named film composer of the year on Saturday evening for his work on "Fantastic Mr. Fox," "New Moon," "Julie & Julia" and "The Ghost Writer."

Steven Spielberg enjoys "natural beauty" of Dartmoor

Steven Spielberg pictured during filming of War Horse
Legendary Hollywood director Steven Spielberg has spoken of the "abundance of natural beauty" he enjoyed while filming scenes for his latest movie on Dartmoor recently. Spielberg spent a number of weeks in the Sheepstor area of Dartmoor while filming War Horse.
And, in a letter to a local newspaper, he has thanked the patience of residents during the shoot.
He said the "support of the local community was critical".
The letter to the Plymouth Evening Herald was sent out by production company, Afterworks Ltd.

Filming took place around Sheepstor and Meavy In it, the Jaws, Jurassic Park and ET director says: "I have never before, in my long and eclectic career, been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor.
"And, with two-and-a-half weeks of extensive coverage of landscapes and skies, I hardly scratched the surface of the visual opportunities th…

Darth Vader costume from 'Star Wars' film to be put on auction

The original Darth Vader costume from one of the Star Wars films is expected to fetch up to $365,000 at an auction in London.


Christie's auction house is selling the black helmet, mask and armor worn by the villain, voiced by James Earl Jones, at a pop culture memorabilia sale on November 25.

The company told the Associated Press the outfit is believed to have been made for the 1980 movie The Empire Strikes Back and that the seller is an anonymous American private collector. 

They're Here! Poltergeist Interview

Image Credit: Everett CollectionWe’re here! It’s a week before Halloween, but the release of Paranormal Activity 2: Electric Boo!-galoo seemed like the perfect occasion to watch the 1982 ghosts-in-suburbia film Poltergeist. About a family being terrorized by a specter older than Arlen and scarier than Phil, the flick has given birth to endless quotable lines, childhood nightmares, and rumors of a curse. Directed by Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s Tobe Hooper, but kinda maybe really directed by 1941’s Steven Spielberg, it remains a classic of the genre and a good warning not to let your kids sit too close to the TV.
Darren Franich: The first 20 minutes are all slow-building suspense. There are dozens of perfect little details about family life, like the dad convincing the kids that the lightning isn’t so scary, or the wife smoking a joint while her husband reads a book about Ronald Reagan. Then these very subtle spooky things happen. Chairs move. A glass breaks. It feels like a movie …

Latest Harry Potter Soundtrack Not Going To Be By John Williams

Alexandre Desplat was chosen to compose the music soundtrack for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, which he did this past summer.

Warner Bros. has confirmed the titles of the tracks composed by Mr. Desplat by posting them on the WB Watertower Music site with the following synopsis of the film:
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, is a much-anticipated motion picture event to be told in two full-length parts. Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction – the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.”Here is the tracklist:
1.Obliviate
2.Snape to Malfoy Manor
3.Polyjuice Potion
4.Sky Battle

All WMS concerts take place in the Frauenthal Center for Perfor…

Inside the Star Wars machine: part one

The latest Star Wars game, Force Unleashed II, is out this week and to find out more we visited LucasArts and Industrial Light and Magic at the Letterman Digital Arts Center. Here's what we discovered about the home of Star Wars... Does every visitor to LucasArts get this welcome? As our minibus pulls up to the LucasArts entrance area, there is a strange but not entirely unexpected welcoming party. Darth Vader and six stormtroopers are lined up along the road, standing to attention in the blinding Californian sunshine. Yesterday San Francisco saw its hottest day since records began, and today the temperature remains in the high nineties. Of course, press trips like this are rare, and the staff at LucasArts like to pull out all the stops. But these poor bastards must think they're back on Tatooine.
We're here to tour the Letterman Digital Arts Center, a sprawl of modern office buildings constructed in 1999 to house LucasArts and legendary special effects com…

Indiana Jones 3D Rumours Are False!

A rumor is circulating today that Lucasfilm plans to convert the four Indiana Jones movies to 3-D, a move echoing its six Star Wars conversions that will debut in 2012 with The Phantom Menace. It could be interesting, right? Alas, a Lucasfilm representative tells Movieline we won’t find out any time soon.
A studio source I’ve worked with in the past denied the story outright: “This is completely false. Right now, we are totally focused on bringing Star Wars to 3-D, and we have no plans to do an Indiana Jones conversion.” And… scene. It’s too bad, too, because let’s be honest: You’ve never really seen a fridge nuked until you’ve seen it nuked in 3-D.

Star Wars creator George Lucas commissions paintings for new book

answered the phone to hear a voice on the line with an unusual offer.
The call was from the office of Star Wars creator George Lucas, who wanted to commission a few Star Wars paintings for a book he was working on.
"I said, 'You must have the wrong number because I do World War II paintings," Bailey recalled with a laugh. "And he said, 'No, no -- he's seen your work and he wants you to do Star Wars.' "
They'd tracked down Bailey through his website, which mainly features his oil-on-canvas works depicting Second World War-era military planes and battles.
He was one of about 100 artists commissioned to contribute art for the just-released book Star Wars Visions, which retails for $48.
Caught off guard by the phone call two years ago but up for the challenge, Bailey, who has been painting since he was five years old, immediately accepted the offer. But he had some brushing up to do, since the last time he had seen a Sta…

Family Guy Trilogy: Laugh It Up Fuzzball Box Set Blu-ray Coming Soon

For lovers of Family Guy, you may want to take notice of Amazon's listing for the Family Guy Trilogy: Laugh It Up Fuzzball, a collection of all three of Family Guy's Star Wars episodes in one convenient box. Of course, it you previously purchased the two that are currently available, you probably want to kick someone in the teeth right about now, but let's face it, we knew something like this would spring up once the Trilogy was completed.

The Trilogy is set to drop on December 21, 2010 on Blu-ray for the mass suggested retail price of $39.99. There's no listing for the DVD set as of this time, but there's bound to be one. After all, more folks own DVD players than Blu-ray players, and Family Guy is a huge show that reaches a broad variety of people.

Check out the box art below:

More Sexy Star Wars Costumes - R2-D2 Swimsuit.

It's from Black Milk Clothing, an independent clothing company from Australia that normally specializes in exotic leggings. It was designed by James Lillis, goes for US$85, and is made from a Polyester/Lycra blend. We're not sure if it's Lucasfilm-licensed (we're guessing it's not) but it's cool nonetheless.

http://shop.blackmilkclothing.com/product/artoo

This is my favourite.  Just like an R2 unit this is practical and looks good.  Now where do I put that restraining bolt?

 Also Available is this Darkside swimsuit.  Still prefer the R2 one though.

Steven Spielberg staging a “Robopocalypse” for 2013

Spielberg will helm an adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson’s “Robopocalypse,” where humans fight back against a robot uprising. Deadline, which broke the story, says Spielberg will work from a Drew Goddard script, will begin shooting in January, and will have the film in theaters in 2013.
Those who want to know more about Wilson’s story will have to pick up the book this summer. Doubleday reportedly will publish the novel in June.
Spielberg’s decision, meanwhile, leaves a handful of interesting projects on the backburner. That rumored “Indiana Jones’ sequel that several key players have mentioned could be dead. Harrison Ford isn’t getting any younger, and fans have voiced their concerns over a Shia LaBeouf-led “Mutt” Williams story. Even LaBeouf mouthed off about “Crystal Skull,” so the wheels might have come off the franchise for good.
The other project that seemed likely but now likely is done is Spielberg’s oft-discussed Lincoln film. Anything’s possible. Spielberg can c…

Jurassic Park IV is confirmed as officially extinct...

Paleontologist, John R. Horner, technical advisor for the first three Jurassic Park films and for Jurassic Park IV, this week was purported to say that although planning and script writing had begun on the long awaited sequel, circumstance has managed to slow down production to a dead halt. 
"It's dead, at least for now. We were working on it, but things weren't happening soon enough. Anyways, it’s a Universal film, and Spielberg is with Disney right now. So until Spielberg gets back with Universal its dead. Hopefully it will be made eventually though!" 
With rumors of Jurassic Park IV going by the name of Extinction, there was also frightening rumors of a story that involved super intelligent dinosaurs being trained by the military to operate lasers guns. Thus it is of some consolation that the current script, if it gets made, will go back to the core principles of Michael Crichton’s original novel, and focus primarily on the science of genetics: 
"W…

UPDATE - Rumours Of Three Star Wars Movies Are False - Lucasfilm

Thanks to wired.com we can now confirm that the rumour of there being three new Star Wars movies are false (Sorry) 

“This is, of course, completely false,” Lucasfilm spokesman Josh Kushins told Wired.com in an e-mail Saturday about the report. “George Lucas has plenty of projects to keep him busy right now — including plenty of Star Wars projects — but there are no new Star Wars feature films planned.”

LucasArts explains Force Unleashed II tech

LucasArts has contacted Digital Foundry to talk about the tech behind the forthcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, based on points raised in our PS3/360 demo showdown.
In that feature we said that the new game is an extremely close cross-platform project, which looks absolutely fantastic thanks to some great art in concert with a state-of-the-art rendering engine.
There are differences between the two platforms that we spotted in the demo code - higher-precision motion-blur and edge-detection on PS3 up against a slightly smoother performance level across the run of play on Xbox 360, along with a couple of other minor curiosities revolving around lightsabers and textures. But in short, it's very close indeed - something LucasArts is keen to emphasise.
LucasArts senior rendering engineer Dmitry Andreev writes:
"When we started with the TFUII project, the direction we chose was quite clear and strong on the rendering side – to make the best multi-platform ex…

Behind The Scenes Of The Star Wars Currys Ad

M&C Saatchi have pulled off quite a coup by persuading Star Wars creator George Lucas to hand over R2-D2 and C-P30 for use in an ad campaign this weekend to promote Currys, of all people.
Lucas has even provided a group of Imperial Stormtroopers to turn up as a marketing stunt for the opening of one of a chain of new Currys megastores, which the ad campaign is designed to promote. In the TV commercial, the two much-loved Star Wars robots are depicted breaking into Currys and becoming intrigued by various electrical items, with R2-D2 getting jiggy with a Hetty Hoover.
As a creative idea it reminds me of the Wieden & Kennedy ad for Honda featuring the Japanese company’s robot Asimo wandering around various museums on a mission of discovery before coming face to face with the outfit of a Russian spaceman, which he mistakes for his reflection.
M&C creative head Graham Fink persuaded Lucas and his team to release the R2-D2 and C-P30 at a reasonable rate in return fo…

Rumours Rumours Three New Star Wars Movies?

IESB is reporting that they have the inside information from a source within Lucasfilm!

"The word from our ultra top-secret Lucasfilm insider is that Lucas has gotten the itch and is already looking ahead into launching an entirely new trilogy in that galaxy far, far away.


What do we know? First of all, these new film will have nothing to do with the live action television series currently in development. That show already has over 50 scripts ready to go and plenty of pre-production time and money has been spent on artwork and storyboards. Once that show goes into production, Lucasfilm hopes to be able to produce at least 100 episodes since that is the threshold for syndication in the United States."

IESB has been told fans can expect the new trilogy after the entire saga is released in 3D which is expected to be complete around 2015 or 2016.

thebeardedtrio will keep you informed of any development on this rumour.

Eric Stoltz As Marty Mcfly In Back To The Future - Advertised In Fringe Alternate Universe

In a recent episode of "Fringe," a theater marquee in the parallel universe advertised "'Back to the Future' Starring Eric Stoltz." For those in the know - and as director Robert Zemeckis and others describe in a featurette on the "Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy" coming out Oct. 26 - that alternate reality was almost true.For five weeks before Michael J. Fox signed on as time-traveling teen Marty McFly, the role was being shot with current "Caprica" star Stoltz. Yet, as Zemeckis recalls today, "He's a magnificent actor, but his comedy sensibilities were very different than what I had written with Bob, and he and I were just never able to make that work."
Steven Spielberg, one of the executive producers, says Zemeckis ultimately "showed me the first five weeks of footage cut together, and he just said I don't think we're getting the laughs that I was hoping we would be able to get. And …

Lucasfilm’s Keeper of the Fans Is Leaving

A force behind the Force is leaving Lucasfilm. In an e-mail blast on Wednesday,  Stephen J. Sansweet said he planned to end his reign as director of content management and head of fan relations for Lucasfilm, the company behind the “Star Wars” franchise, next spring.
Mr. Sansweet, once the Los Angeles bureau chief for The Wall Street Journal, became known to millions of “Star Wars” fans as a keeper of the flame — and of a massive personal collection of “Star Wars” paraphernalia that fills a 5,000-square-foot barn at his home in Petaluma, Calif. In his e-mail Mr. Sansweet pointed to a posting on Starwars.com that recaps his 15-year career with Lucasfilm but quotes him as saying, “It’s time for another change and new challenges.” Still, it assures the faithful that he will remain involved with the fans, whatever his next endeavor — and includes a photograph of him dressed as an Ewok.

Martin Freeman to play Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit

The Office actor Martin Freeman will play Bilbo Baggins in two-part Lord of the Rings prequel The Hobbit, director Peter Jackson has announced.
He said in a statement there had "only ever been one Bilbo Baggins for us".
Freeman, 39, was "intelligent, funny, surprising and brave - exactly like Bilbo", Jackson added.
Meanwhile, Jackson's wife Fran Walsh has reportedly told a radio station filming could move to the UK because of an industrial dispute in New Zealand.
Dwarves cast
Jackson said he was "incredibly proud" to be able to announce that Freeman would be the hobbit.
Richard Armitage, Aidan Turner, Rob Kazinsky and Graham McTavish will all appear in The Hobbit "There are a few times in your career when you come across an actor who you know was born to play a role, but that was the case as soon as I met Martin," Jackson said.
Spooks actor Richard Armitage, 39 - who has a role in the forthcoming film Captain America: The First Avenger -…

Industrial Light & Magic Documentary on Encore - Nov 12th

Industrial Light & Magic has for the most part defined what special visual effects for movies were expected to be since the division of Lucasfilm was formed 35 years ago. Now the magic makers are the subject of a new documentary, Industrial Light & Magic: Creating the Impossible, from Academ y Award- and Emmy-nominated director Leslie Iwerks.

Narrated by Tom Cruise, the film will debut on the Encore cable channel on Friday, November 12, 2010 at 9:00 PM ET and PT.

UK Electrical Chain Dixons To Feature Star Wars Ads

The electronics chain's latest ads will feature the droid pair - including original C-3PO actor Anthony Daniels - breaking into one of the chain's megastores and examining merchandise ranging from cameras to washing machines to fridge freezers.



Apparently the pair will be "amazed at the brilliant technology on offer". This isn't so out of this world - as far as we remember there were no washing machines, breadmakers or tumble dryers in the Star Wars movies, though we seem to remember Aunt Beru having some kind of '70s-style food processor and veggie steamer.


So far, so advertising coup. However, as part of its effort to broadcast the breadth of its offering to as wide an audience as possible, Dixons is to broadcast the ads into space, with the help of Deep Space Communications.














Dixons marketing director Niall O’Keeffe told trade rag Marketing Week: "This is about building our retail brands, not price promotions. We’re a completely different organisation tha…

Michael Giacchino To Score ‘Cars 2,’ ‘Super 8,’ ‘Mission Impossible 4,’ ‘John Carter of Mars’ and ‘Star Tours’

Michael Giacchino has personally solved the problem of unemployment in America: just win an Oscar for Best Original Score. After Giacchino’s 2010 Oscar win for his amazing score to Up, the composer behind Star Trek and Lost has more jobs than a normal person would know what to do with. He just finished Let Me In, we already found out he will be scoring Andrew Stanton’s John Carter of Mars, but now we have official confirmation that he’s currently scoring Cars 2 for John Lasseter and Pixar, followed by Super 8 and Mission: Impossible 4 for frequent collaborators J.J. Abrams and Brad Bird respectively. He’s also “adapting John Williams’ themes for the refreshed Star Tours ride at Disneyland.”

Variety ran a long profile on the award winning composer which is well worth the time for Giacchino fans. He talks about how he got his start, working on video games and how he considers himself more of a storyteller than a musician because “It’s not about what I’m doing; it’s about what this p…

Ex-LucasArts Dev's New Studio Has Ideas For Force Unleashed III

Earlier this week , ex-LucasArts developers Haden Blackman and Cedrick Collomb announced the formation of a new developer, Fearless Studios. Despite having just left LucasArts, Blackman says they are not opposed to the idea of working with the Star Wars publisher in the future, possibly even on a sequel to Blackman's biggest past project, the Force Unleashed series.

Speaking to Industry Gamers , Blackman revealed that Fearless Studios "would absolutely consider a relationship with LucasArts in the future, and would even consider developing The Force Unleashed 3 as part of our portfolio, provided we had a proper schedule to do it justice." He even went so far as to say that the team has "ideas about how to improve the gameplay and where the story might go next."

Blackman was an executive producer on both of the Force Unleashed games as well as a writer for the second.

Dianna Agron - Dianna Agron's Spielberg Surprise

Dianna Agron's Spielberg Surprise
Dianna Agron was shocked when iconic director Steven Spielberg knew her and wanted her to work on a film he was producing.
Dianna Agron was "flabbergasted" when Steven Spielberg knew who she was.
The 'Glee' actress met the iconic film director earlier this year, and was surprised when he knew who she was and wanted her to star in 'I Am Number Four', an action movie he was producing.
She said: "This project kind of came full circle because in January I had met Steven Spielberg. He had said, 'You know, there is this awesome script and we're interested in you but you're not available because it shoots in October.' And I was just flabbergasted that he knew who I was."
Initially she was worried she wouldn't be able to work on the project because of her schedule for Ryan Murphy's 'Glee' - in which she plays cheerleader Quinn Fabray - but managed to work out a plan.
She told C…
