Get your first glimpse of Star Wars in 3D next week before Three Musketeers

10.13.2011

I'll be honest - I was one of those guys who paid to go see WING COMMANDER in 1999 just to see the trailer for THE PHANTOM MENACE and left before the movie even started. At the time, it was $7.50 well-spent. Then about two months later THE PHANTOM MENACE hit theaters and, well, that $7.50 did not seem like money well spent. So as the trailer for the 3D re-release of PHANTOM MENACE hits theaters next week, I have a feeling I won't be plunking down cash just to see it in the theater.

The 3D version of PHANTOM is set to hit theaters in February and the trailer, also in 3D, will be run before THE THREE MUSKETEERS starting next Friday. It will be the first public glimpse of STAR WARS footage in 3D and despite the many protests of fanboys who hate George Lucas for his many tinkerings and double-dips, will likely have people whipped up into a frenzy regardless.

I'm sure the trailer will pop up online some time next week as well but considering the whole point of the thing is to, you know, see it in 3D, I'm not sure what the point of watching it online would be.

So if you must relive the pain of 1999 over again in another dimension, check out the new trailer and prepare yourself for Februrary...

So how shitty is that CGI added to the original trilogy going to be blown up on the big screen?

I am surprised these days about how I stopped caring about Star Wars. I've been a fan for many years, but these times are over since the cow was milked to death and the prequels told me that the cow was supposed to be meaningless from the beginning anyway.

I'm not the biggest fan of TPM, but the thought of seeing the Original Trilogy and Revenge of the Sith in theaters again, 3D or not, gets me excited enough to support the cause and see this one.

Well, 3M is actually quite entertaining, in a "dumb but fun" kind of way and as long as you don't see it as a literal adaptation of the book, obviously!)

In my opinion; if Harry Potter 7p2; a film that was not shot for 3D in 2D, spent over a year and a half in the conversion process came out looking worse than 'Clash of the Titans'. Then i have no hope for the Star Wars films.

I can't believe he's releasing these one a year. At that rate, it will be 4 years before anyone gives a shit. And by that time, 3D in the theater will have burned enough people to have gone away and died. If he was releasing all 6 in the theater at the same time with a limited number of showings, and making it a big 12 hour movie marathon event, I could see some success to be had here.

George Lucas Sucks

George Lucas is a fuckin asshole… The nerve of this guy… Listen… if you are in control of a property as loved as Star Wars, as oppose to re-releasing the same movies over and over and over again .. . MAKE ANOTHER GODDAMN MOVIE and let Christopher Nolan or JJ Abrams direct it. I mean seriously… this MF has nothing better to do than sit around re-working movies when he could take his VAST wealth and make a new goddamn movie. What a fuckin dick…
