Harry vs. Luke: Which sparkly-stick wielding hero do you prefer?
Two heroic journeys go head to head this fall in theatres: George Lucas plans to re-release all six Star Wars films on 3-D, and the second-to-last Harry Potter film will be coming out in 3-D this fall as well. Forbes has already penned a post that pits the franchises against each other, pointing out that Harry Potter is edging up on Star Wars' current standing as richest franchise of all time.
It's kind of like the way Chamillionaire knew he made it after Wierd Al ran some satire on him. Ben Affleck's Charlestown flick The Town is now officially larger-than-large, at least in the sense that nerds have taken an incredible amount of time to mash-up a Star Wars-version of the trailer.
Aside from that indication that The Town is Oscar-bound, this video boggles on the sheer merit of its execution.
Above: Luke Skywalker resists the temptation of the dark side while constructing his green lightsaber in a cave on Tattooine in this scene cut from Return of the Jedi and, amazingly, not re-inserted into the film in the previous "Special Edition." This scene will be part of the Star Wars trilogy Blu-Ray release in 2011, which I guess is the "Super-Special Edition" or something like that. Kind of a cool scene, though, I guess.
With just an hour to go before laser beams start shooting out of the TD Garden's ceiling in time to "The Imperial March" at tonight's "Star Wars: In Concert" extravaganza, let's have a quick moment of silence for a man who made a huge contribution to the Star Wars legacy, and sci-fi in general. Artist Don Ivan Punchatz, sometimes referred to as "The Godfather of Dallas Illustration," died on October 22 in his home state of Texas at age 73.
Halloween could be classed as the nation's most geek-friendly holiday, since it's the one day a year when you can cosplay without being judged. So, first things first: let's talk costumes.
SEGA has provided a detailed guide on how to cosplay Bayonetta; it's a bit early since the game hasn't come out yet, but prospective Bayonettas will appreciate the high-res pics they've provided of the costume's details.
