Curiously .. Hologram-Leia seen in TLJ was not CGI.. it was alternative angle filmed for ANH left in the cutting room (Gareth Edwards said that while looking for material during RO filming they came across ALL filmed footage for ANH .. thats where they got also Red and Gold leader footage (digitally enhanced and inserted in the battle)


I've only seen The Last Jedi twice, and just assumed that they'd reused a shot from Star Wars for the low-res hologram scene. Thanks for the clarification! It was an unexpected scene, and very effective, I thought.

When he began to speak, I fully expected to hear "That's a cheap shot!". The scene was unexpected, and brilliant, in my view. :)

Do you guys really watch trailers? If so, why? Why would you risk having parts of a movie spoiled for you?

Life is better without trailers.

The only reason I went to see The Last Jedi was because I had been on an island with rubbish internet for months and I had no idea what was going to happen and I thought I might enjoy it.

I was wrong about the movie, but still right about spoilery trailers.

I've been on a continent with rubbish internet, and had heard only rumors of conflict and plot elements.

It's interesting that it was so polarizing. I'm a fairly uncritical moviegoer and a film need not be perfect for me to enjoy it. Star Wars is in my blood, though, and I'm a little fussier about this particular franchise. I felt that TLJ had Star Wars in its heart, and the movie resonated with me.

The only thing that trailer tells me for sure is that he looks and sounds nothing like Harrison Ford. :hmpf:

The Last Jedi had parts i enjoyed and parts that I found really boring or stupid. I only went to see it on a discount ticket with no spoilers and no expectations but afterwards I still felt like it will be the last one I actively go and see. The only parts of TLJ I really enjoyed were ones that reminded me of the original trilogy, the spin offs feel unnecessary and written by committee and I don't care about the new characters.

im totally fine with the Solo trailer..

Its a movie that we dont need , i dont look forward too but i dont hate it either.. its low risk to me since its well stablished they defecate on the expanded universe and then smile at you saying "and you have to like this.. because we tell you to" and i can like it or not and wont affect much overall about the whole thing since its a prequel..

but i kinda like what i se.. its what should be expected.. a movie with a young Solo set in the underworld.. we should be seeing mostly smugglers, pirates, "jobs", etc

Im kinda surprise they seem to have keep the imperial academy thing.. in the EU Solo was at the imperial academy.. but bailed out when he saved Chewie's life .. that later part mostl likelly we wont see (im guessing he gets out of the academy for being too mucho of a freespirit and he mets Chewie later) but at least seem to have left the ex-imperial thing (unless the enroling thing.

Even the music of the trailer.. while most likelly wont be in the movie (as with most recent SW trailers) it fits the "underground" and smuggler/con world thing

I too struggle to understand why folks seek out trailers to subject themselves to.
 :confused:

At best you learn nothing about the film but, more often then not, trailers either misrepresent the movie or spoil it!

2 years ago the Rogue One trailer got the "Sabotage" treatment, and now the Solo trailer has received the same thing:

Not the only movie I'd guess, but the trailer for Rogue One had shots in it that were not only not in the movie, but were never intended to be a part of the movie, just shot because they would look "cool"

That kind of false advertising should be illegal, they used to do it in video game commercials and were called out for it, now you get the little disclaimer "not in game footage".

It is not like the Deadpool teaser trailer which is just to build excitement, they presented the shots as if they were a part of the movie, the lying hacks!

But if someone went into the movie because of a cool scene in the trailer, wouldn't that be false advertisement?  And at that point, what would the studio care?  They got their money.

The practice of studios using deceptive advertising to lure people into seeing their movies has been going on for a very long time. It's lousy, but I expect and account for it.

The studio should present the cool footage directly after the movie, so that everyone who paid for the commercial gets what they paid for.

Rebels Just Introduced Something We Never Thought We'd See in Star Wars

Speaking of which, does anyone else remember when there were reports of a Star Wars TV series being produced that was going to be about a group of bounty hunters going back in time to kill Darth Vader?

So they could just tell you someone is in the movie when they aren't, or tell you its two hours long when its only ten minutes. Marketing your movie is fine, do what you like in commercials and other media, but the trailer is a cut of a minute or two's worth of previews from the actual film. Suggesting certain things will be in the movie, and then they are not is deception. It is bullshit and you cant do it in other media so I don't think the movie industry should be exempt.

They get away with a lot of things though, like sexual crimes.  I heard Jared from Subway was arrested recently, but it took 4 years to catch him.

Right, I think you're thinking of more extreme examples than I am. Claiming one thing and not delivering is different from showing a bunch on short clips and some of them happen to not make the final cut (which is what I'm thinking of).

Rebels finale was so awesome...

i do have a few things i quite didnt like but overall was a very round finale actually closing arcs and leaving a good feel and absolutelly integrated with the classic trilogy... with a short but very eye opening epilogue  


It makes me even dislike TFA and TLJ even more..  Rebels synced perfectly not only with the classic trilogy.. but with Clone Wars and even the prequels .. Rogue One came and both adapted a bit to each other.. Rogue One referencing a couple of Rebels characters and stuff and rebels taking a few episodes to pave the road to Rogue One..  

So why the hell could neither JJ or Rian do that? why for them to make their histories they had to ruin everything everyone else did before? .. see it wasnt that hard.. Lucasfilms really should consider using a team of writers along the history group and stop making directors onmipotent beings who do ALL ...directing is not the same as writing

As for the rebels finale:

Disney probably doesn't like Star Wars films.  Rather they like making money.

I like your idea of these history writers though.  If we assembled them together, we could probably produce large quantities of Jar Jar Binks pornography.

i dont have any kind of inteligent answer to your final 4 words on that post

But the point stands... Its every Marvel director writing the entire script of their movies? nope..  before Lucas wrote the scripts.. but even so the best of the saga was re-writen and polished by someone else (Lawrence Kasdan, Marcia Lucas, even spielber and copola advised Lucas on some bits, and lets not forget his feud with Marquand) But even so it was Lucas history.. he even had a structure writen before hand.. sure the movies are not direct translates of that structure.. he changed bits ..he re-ordered and moved stuff arround, took what bits he tought best and made what he made.. but he knew where he was going at least ..and had a bit of story cohesion..

Now JJ did whatever he wanted wich involved burning whatever might had acomplished all previous movies...and Johnson also burned even what JJ had presented..

There is people that cant believe there was no at least a general history in this sequel trilogy.. but thats it..there is not..

JJ maybe tought a plan for a trilogy (because originally JJ was to direct all 3) but Johnson didnt used ANY of JJ's ideas and just made up his own. like if episode 8 was the final movie.. any plan JJ had for the final movie has been ruined by Johnson and by Fisher dead..  Johnson didnt even "saved" Luke now that Fisher is gone for episode 9.. the resistance is gone (a few folks in a freighter and a kid with a broom doesnt count as not even a team) the republic is more than gone aparently, Luke is gone, the Jedi are gone save Rey and the broom kido, evil emperor is gone.. there is nothing.. ep 9 will have to start from scrath
