We originally reported that the Star Wars
saga was going to feature a second round at the theatres all in the third
dimension in coming years[read here].
Now Showest, the convention that occurred in Las Vegas, has offered tons
on Star Wars including the sneak peak at both the saga in 3D and
the first eight minutes of Star
Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
Can you imagine a speeder chase, or any Star Wars
chase for that
matter, in 3D?
While I had no idea Showest had that kind of pull, theHollywoodnews
sends a report.
Star Wars in 3d Any Good?
In the first reports that I had read about Star
Wars in 3D, they claimed that while the film did look pretty good,
there was still some minor 'ghosting' that can get on some viewers nerves
[ghosting is a result of the film being in 3D]. Well, theHollywoodnews also
saw the same presentation, which was lead by George Lucas, James Cameron,
Robert Zemeckis and Robert Rodriguez, and in a single word they called it
'astonishing'. Here is a snippet from the report:
We're talking quality film in digital
3-D. James Cameron is shooting his next feature, Battle Angel, in 3-D and
he appears extremely excited about the whole endeavor. Lucas also talked
about the possibility of taking pre-existing film prints and transferring
them to digital 3-D. And in fact, during the product real, he treated the
audience to the first seven minutes of A New Hope in 3-D and it was absolutely
astonishing. Crystal clear. It looked like a brand new movie, and the 3-D
process lends itself beautifully to that kind of film...
Revenge of the Sith- First Eight Minutes
Just when I thought I could not have been more
jealous on missing out on Showest, reports begin to come in that they showed
a whopping eight minutes from the beginning of Revenge of the Sith.
The first eight minutes began with the 20th Century Fox logo and ended somewhere
during the initial space battle. Here is a snippet from the report:
George Lucas showed us the first eight minutes (or thereabouts) of Episode III. We're talking about the 20th Century Fox logo, followed by the Lucasfilm logo, followed by the infamous crawl (which, at this point, most fans have read on line), followed by the opening space battle. It was breathtaking. The overall look of the picture is simply stunning. Colorful and vibrant. Action packed. Sound that nearly knocked our asses to the back of the theater.
Revenge of the Sith is sounding better
by the day... but I do not want to get my hopes too up, as I have been disappointed
