Hoyts Australia ROTS Event Report

Posted By Britany on March 21, 2005

Here's a report from Darth glitch & Master Hownick Mornea, who have just returned from the Hoyts Episode 3 Event at Fox Studios in Australia, which was attended by Hayden Christensen:

Just got back form from the "First Look Event" at Fox Studios Australia. It was MAAAAAAAAD!!!! We got last minute passes (from those that didn't show), and we shook HAYDEN'S HAND!!!

First off, the 20th century fox rep introduced it all, explained what would happen, and then they showed two of the web docs. "Two Worlds, One Movie" and "Becoming Obi-Wan Kenobi". Then Hayden introduced the trailer (first time seen in Oz on the big screen). Then after it was finished the first time, he said "That was cool! I don't know about you guys, but I wanna see it again."

Then they showed a quick reel on Hayden - mostly green screen footage of stuff you saw in the trailer.

They then had a Q&A, transcribed as best as we can remember (weesa mondo hyper)

In no particular order:

Q: How are you? *ALOT*
A: Always ,I'm good.

Q: What was it like in the (Vader) suit?
A: "You can't see much, it's really hot, it's empowering and it weighs about 40lbs.

Q: Are you single?
A: Yes I am.

Q: How much time did you spend in the (Vader) suit?
A: *Hesitates* No comment, not long enough (after prompting from the crowd).

Q: How good a kisser is Natalie and can you sign my lightsaber? (ref to parksaber.com)
A: UMMMMMMMMMMMMM! *Looks hesitant* I'll sign it if I don't have to answer.

Q: What martial arts did you learn for the fighting?
A: It was all choreographed. It was more like a dance than a martial arts.

20th cent fox guy interrupts: I was fortunate enough to see some of the filming of the fight and it was very serial.

Hayden: All of the fighting was done in front of blue screen so we didn't have much to work with. The fights all look so fast you think they are sped up, but they aren't. We're are seriously going that fast and that hard.

Q: what was it like working with Ian McDiarmid?
A: It was awe inspiring. He had such a presence it lifted the set. (Possible paraphrasing, as we're pretty tired)

Q: What was it like shooting in front of a blue/green screen?
A: A little odd. (UBER paraphrase...) Shooting in front of a blue screen for all/most of the movie. Interacting with people and things that are not there makes it hard to work. "We're like a live action part of a digital film" I haven't even seen the finished product yet. *Points at screen with Episode 3 poster projected on it.

Q: Who's your favourite character?
A: Mine would have to be Boba Fett, yeah the bounty hunter. Which one's yours? *prompting after a pause* beginning with D.

Little kid: *thinks...gets prompted...disregards the prompting* Yoda

Hayden: looking abit upset (probably cause his mind trick/prompting didn't work), yeah Yoda's pretty cool.

After Q&A, they showed a reel of footage of all six movies (nothing new, but really cool anyway). While Hayden was being ushered out by his minders.

P.S. We got told off by Hayden's minders for asking him to sign our script. He was going to, but got stopped! Plus there were show bags with M&M crispies and Hasbro lightsabers (not the noise and light ones), and some Lipton ice tea. No blue milk however.

Heaps of fun cant wait to see the movie.
