We so much enjoyed bringing you the recent GMA appearance of William Shatner, we thought you might enjoy this flashback to the eighties. Here we watch a GMA segment from 25 (!) years ago featuring Shatner promoting Star Trek IV. Dig Shatner in that sparkly shirt. Gotta love the eighties! And stick with the interview till the end, there’s a very special bonus interview.

He’s promoting his new album and book!
Gosh, I wonder what side he’s on? /sarcasm
Thrilling new trailer for the upcoming season of Clone Wars! It premieres this Friday; September 16, 2011 on the Cartoon Network.
It’s 1984. You’re an exec at Universal. One of the films on your release schedule is David Lynch’s adaptation of Dune. It worries you. You were hoping for another Star Wars. But you got someting else. A weird and confusing film. Not much you can do about the former. It’s in the can. But maybe you can do something about the latter. So you make up a glossary and have theater owners distribute it to the patrons.
Did this work? Hardly. The film still flopped. But it did create one of the most sought after bits of movie ephemera ever created. And now, we here at GRN, can give you look at that weird bit of movie memorabilia. Here it is as a PDF file that you can view, copy, even print.
Now you too can learn what a “crysknife” is made from, what the empire’s “human computers” are called, and the meaning of Paul’s secret name “Usul”. Of course, fans of the novel already knew this stuff. Or most of it. (The film added a few ideas of its own.) But it’s still great to peruse this bit of movie marketing history.
Variety is confirming that Lucasfilm is in the midst of a 3D conversion of the Star Wars saga with news that The Phantom Menace 3D will see a release in 2012. Many film fans have criticized the entire 2D to 3D conversion process. And Lucasfilm’s John Knoll shares that view, stating:
I have been a vocal critic of some of the previous efforts at doing 3D conversions. (But) I think the problems that have been encountered are mostly because of budget and schedule, trying to ram the work though in too short a period of time.
Another trailer from E3, this time the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Old Republic.
We’re not big fans of MMO’s, but this one does look rather cool.
