  1. Entertainment Weekly confirmed it was the casino exterior in this article
  2. I initially posted it in the TLJ thread! Blame Leblanc!
  3. My question is would he even want it, depending on what really happened behind-the-scenes of Rogue One.
  4. I'm not sure what they could build a whole feature around, but one aspect I think would be cool is if they got Joel Edgerton back as Owen and had some scenes between them, since there's some tension implied between them in the original. Arguing over Luke or whatnot, have a series of secret rendezvous between them (no, not like that....or maybe like that!)
  5. I wonder what a Nico Muhly Star Wars would be like.
  6. McGregor's been asked about this several times a year pretty much since 2012 and every time he's said he would so probably a given. I think Daldry's switched composers with every film so hard to predict, but wonder if he'd go back to Desplat on this one.
  7. Oh man, if that's what you're interested in then you'll have to see it, the whole thing feels incredibly authentic. The writer/director is actually a production designer and serious colonial America junkie, it's a big part of the reason he made it because he was so interested in that period, their lifestyle and belief systems and that's what the film centers around thematically. He went to great lengths in his research and it shows. You'd probably enjoy his commentary even more which is very informative, and he even honestly points out and explains/corrects the minor compromises due to budget and location logistics and things. One of the more critical commentaries I've ever heard actually, sometimes he comes across a bit anal but it paid off! Plus it's just a damn good movie. I'm not much for horror either but it really struck me as more of a disturbing psychological mood piece. Very effective slow burn, the creepiest bits emphasize dark surreal imagery over gore or jump scares (in fact often obscuring things in evocative lighting), and character-centered with economic writing and stark, often subtle performances. Aesthetically kinda felt to me like he was going for Bergman by way of David Lynch and it's not a bad try at all. Obviously those are lofty comparisons, but it definitely takes itself seriously so your mileage may vary on how successful that is.
  8. Not much but Rian Johnson tells a brief, funny anecdote about watching the movie the first time with JW here:
  9. Didn't we just do this?
  10. Pretty much my feelings too. I'm intrigued for the second one at least since it's bound to be uniquely dazzling filmmaking for at least some substantial stretch and we all know Cameron's not gonna do anything without doing it big. I am sure I'll be surprised by it somehow, technically if nothing else. But I do wonder about its ability to make me want several more hours of this story, since the first film didn't do that.
  11. Not sure, never bought tickets this far in advance. I was just gonna wait for the programs to be published since that's what I've usually done (last time Williams was here I bought gallery seats only a month before the performance) but he's usually come in the fall not spring so it was closer to when tickets were first available, anyway. My guess is most people are just gonna wait for the programs before buying a seat so unless you're really particular about where you sit or you need to plan way in advance, then you're probably fine. Subscribers will fill up a good chunk, though, for sure.
