Word broke last week that JJ Abrams will be handed the reigns of the first Disney owned Star Wars production, the as yet untitled Star Wars VII. Obviously, this was a huge story and the internet exploded.
I want to know what YOU think. As a producer, Abrams has made a number of famous television projects and a couple of films, but as a director his filmography really boils down to three films, “Mission Impossible III”, “Star Trek”, and “Super 8” (with another Star Trek film pending).
What do YOU think? Is that enough? Are you excited over the announcement? Does your geek brain recoil at the cross-over between the Star Trek and Star Wars universes? Do you think we’ll be able to WATCH a lightsaber duel with all that lens flaring?
Here we go everybody! It’s a brand new episode of the (title pending) Movie Podcast with Tank and Fogs!
This week up it’s another review spectacular, with a whopping six current movies to discuss for your listening pleasure. Zero Dark Thirty, Gangster Squad, A Haunted House, Broken City, The Last Stand, and Mama!
Then we introduce a new feature to the show, one that we plan on running occasionally as we go froward… the (title pending) Valhalla!
It’s a really good episode, you don’t want to miss it! You can download it directly, here, or as always, search for us on iTunes and Stitcher radio using the keywords (title pending) or Tank and Fogs!
Well, folks, now that the MAJOR Awards are behind us, we can put 2012 to bed for good. A brand new movie year has already begun, full of promise. All the best of and worst of lists reset, as an entirely new release schedule awaits.
What 2013 movie has you excited? Which one(s) are you anticipating most? Is it one of the many Superhero films we’ll be getting (we have new offerings pending this year from Superman, Iron Man, Wolverine and Thor)? How about some of the big sequels, like “Anchorman 2”, “Star Trek into Darkness” or the next chapters of “The Hobbit” or “The Hunger Games”? There are original offerings in the mix, too. Tom Cruise’s “Oblivion” has been heavily promoted of late, M Night Shyamalan tries to resurrect his failing status by working with Will Smith and son in “After Earth”, and Stallone and Schwarzenegger are due to reunite in “The Tomb.”
