Elstree 1976 DVD

After suffering some distribution delays, Elstree 1976 has finally started turning up in stores around New Zealand. My copy arrived today from Mighty Ape where it's currently available at the excellent price of only $14.99.

I'll be watching it soon - and adding my thoughts here as soon as I do - so stay tuned for updates!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Theatrical Trailer Released

After treating us to a behind-the-scenes video just a few weeks ago, StarWars.com today dropped the official trailer for Rogue One. You can check it out below.

This is, quite simply, everything a trailer should be. Without giving away any hint of the actual narrative, this trailer firmly establishes the premise of the film and takes us on a whirlwind tour of its ensemble cast. We're also treated to some utterly gorgeous samples of cinematography from the film, including that phenomenal shot of the Death Star eclipsing a sun. My personal highlight, however, is the score. My breath was taken away by that moment when we hear the familiar notes of the Imperial March metamorphose into a swelling heroic theme for the first time - and I pray that this piece of music makes its way into the actual film.
