Lucas authorizes sound effects for "Fanboys" movie
#1
Chris Marquette, who co-stars in the upcoming Star Wars-themed comedy Fanboys, told SCI FI Wire that the movie has been delayed to add a cameo with Kevin Smith and sound effects from the Star Wars films, which were authorized by George Lucas himself after he saw an early cut and approved. The homage to Star Wars fans now has an Aug. 17 release date.

"They showed it to so many people involved in Star Wars that we've gone back several times with additional scenes," Marquette said in an interview while promoting his latest film, The Invisible. "Like, Kevin Smith had seen it, and [he] came in and was like, 'Oh, man. I love it.' So they let him write and direct one of his own scenes in it. So they added that in." Smith is a well-known fan of Star Wars, having included allusions to the franchise in his films for years.

I saw this tidbit also. I don't know if I'll watch it at theater.
I can imagine quite a bit.

It sounds like Free Enterprise a similarly fanboy-themed movie. That was focused on Star Trek though. Sounds like fun, but it might be more of a renter than a movie-theater audience.

I finally watched Fanboys last night. I'd say it's worth a look if you're a fan of Star Wars or sci fi in general. It's short enough that it doesn't outstay it's welcome, and has several amusing cameo appearances.

A co-worker of mine highly recommended it.

I got motivated to see it after friends and co-workers recommended it, too. It's got plenty of the toilet humor you'd expect from a movie about teenagers/young adults, but there's plenty of funny geek moments, and actually a "serious" subplot, too. All in all it's pretty solid, and at 90 minutes runtime, it's short and sweet.

I'll have to remember to add this to my Netflix queue. My new office has the site blocked for whatever silly reason.

LOL.

I'm actually pretty certain it's so folk don't watch movies and suck up the bandwidth, which wasn't a problem at my last office, since technically we were in Canada (our server was, anyhow) and Netflix wouldn't allow the watching of films.

We do, however, get youtube, and I love to stream playlists. I'm currently hooked on Imogen Heap after hearing her interview on NPR!

I do control the Internet in my day job. But I've never found time to watch this movie.

I saw Fanboys. I thought it was really funny, and a bit touching at the end. I definitely recommend checking it out if you haven't.
