If you've been following Fanboys ... well, you're in for a treat. The premise is simple - it's the story of some fans one Halloween night that head to Lucasfilm to break in and steal a copy of Episode I. Geeks will appreciate it the most ... we saw cameos of William Shatner, Carrie Fisher and there was even a reference to Harry Knowles. Brilliant geek-inspired writing, though still definitely not the polished finished product.
Today at the Celebration, a special 1-time-only exclusive preview, the director, producers and a few members of the cast premiered 45 minutes of clips from the film. In a word? Fan-tastic!
They've got one last scene to film in September, a late scene idea in the development of the picture. Also the director noted that the van featured in the film will possibly be available for sale in the future. The film is now scheduled to be released January 18, 2008.
Fanboys was filmed on location in Ohio, Nevada and of course, Skywalker Ranch. The 45-minute series of clips played to raving applause and ended with a well-deserved standing ovation.
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
