Disney and Lucasfilm are bringing ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘ to 4K and UHD,  as well as Blu-ray, DVD, and digital streaming. The film will have a Dolby Vision image and HDR10 along with a Dolby Atmos audio mix. Needless to say, I can’t wait. You’ll be able to watch the film on digital streaming on March 13th and then be able to purchase the actual discs on March 27th. This is the first release from Disney that will feature both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, and what a way to debut it is. In addition to these technical specs, there will be 14 deleted scenes that have never been seen before as well as some behind the scenes, and audio commentary. I just can’t wait. Below is the full details of what you can expect on the release.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

A week or two ago, there was a disturbance in the force as Kathleen Kennedy, LucasFilm, and Disney fired their Star Wars IX director Colin Trevorrow. You can read about that HERE. Turns out, the studio execs couldn’t handle having a big creative force behind Star Wars. The search was on for another director. Were they gonna go with another indie filmmaker with good credentials or play it safe like they did when they replaced Miller and Lord with the capable Ron Howard?

Star Wars Episode IX does NOT have a director anymore!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Wait, what? This shit again? Seriously, those Star Wars execs, including Kathleen Kennedy need to get their shit together, because this is the 2nd time in a couple of months this has happened. Back in June, Chris Miller and Phil Lord were let go from the Han Solo spin-off movie mid-way through the shoot for bullshit reasons. They brought on the capable, yet safe director of Ron Howard to finish the job. At least Episode IX wasn’t in full on production yet, but we did know that Colin Trevorrow was set to direct after his huge success on Jurassic World. That is not the case anymore. Trevorrow is out of the director’s seat, leaving Disney and Lucas Film to  find another filmmaker.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

It looks like Disney is releasing more in 4K UHD since they announced their first 4K release with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 the other day. I expect the flood gates to open up real soon, which means, Pixar, 2D animated classics, Marvel, and LucasFilm releases will be coming out in 4K. Bittersweet news, I know. Sweet, because it will look amazing in 4K finally. Bitter, because the wallet will take a big hit. Expect to purchase the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales‘ in 4K UHD on October 3rd with the digital version releasing on September 19th.

Ron Howard Shoots Second on Star Wars Han Solo Film!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

960

It’s official now. Ron Howard has taken over directing duties on the upcoming Star Wars untitled Han Solo spinoff movie. Yesterday, we got the unfortunate news that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired after creative differences with the studio heads, mainly Kathleen Kennedy and Lawrence Kasdan on the tone of the film. Lord and Miller (The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street) spent almost five months making this Han Solo film, but again, were fired for having a different style than what the studio was expecting. It sent fans in an uproar for sure and for good reason. It’s ultra rare that studios will fire directors this late in the game.

Hey guys, Jana here,

When it comes to a well-oiled machine like the Star Wars world, things are expected to flow smoothly without too many hiccups in an already-proven process. However bringing new blood into an already established series can sometimes prove to be a bad marriage of good intentions. Such is the case with the stand alone Han Solo spinoff.

Want to win a free Digital Copy of the latest ‘Star Wars’ film ‘Rogue One‘? Now you can. I was a huge fan of the film, which took place in between Ep. III and Ep. IV, and focused on a woman named Jyn Erso and a group of others who set out to steal the Death Star plans to give to a certain princess. It was a fantastic movie.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Good news, everyone. There is a new horror genre film festival looking to scare people next year, which will be called ‘The Overlook Film Festival‘ and will start on April 27th at Oregon’s Timberline Lodge, which was used (exterior shots) for Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’. Festival heads Michael Lerman and Landon Zakheim announced the event this Halloween and are planning on bringing classic films, new films, experimental events, and interactive fun to the Timberline Hotel. This first year will be a four day event and looks to be quite fun as it is being put on by a ton of people from the Alamo Drafthouse and ‘Fantastic Fest‘.

There are some things in the world that immediately give you a sense of comfort. A favorite book on a rainy afternoon, catching up with a childhood friend that makes up more than half of your memories, and Harrison Ford at the cineplex. We got another shot of comfort in 2008 with ‘Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull‘ and again this last year with ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘. Now, we have learned there will be another Indiana Jones movie in theaters the summer of 2019!
