Chewbacca – The Biopic


Kyle Newman (Fanboys) arbeitet grade an einem Biopic um Peter Mayhew, der Chewbacca spielte. Der Film soll quasi die Entstehung der Star Wars-Saga durch die Brille des Wookies erzählen. Nettes Konzept, auch wenn Newmans Fanboys eher für die Tonne war. Von Collider:

Mayhew recently tweeted, “Yes, we’re working with Kyle Newman and the team on CHEWIE, The Movie and are hopeful it can move forward.” Heat Vision followed up with a report Newman, the director of the Star Wars love letter Fanboys, acquired Mayhew’s life rights to further develop the script. There is no specific mention of Newman directing, but his involvement should help move the project along regardless. George Lucas gave an early approval to Fanboys, enough to lend the movie the official Star Wars sound effects. Chewie has a terribly appealing premise, but one that is probably dependent on Lucasfilm’s involvement for proper execution.

    Erstmal: ich hatte gerade eine fremde E-Mailadresse + Nick in den Angaben.
    Eigentlich: Klingt ja mal richtig unspannend. Eher was für Die-Hard-Fans.

    @ Tobi: Der Bug ist bekannt und dürfte an einer Serverkonfiguration liegen, die mein Hoster wegen eines DDos-Angriffs implementieren musste. Die wird jetzt am WE wieder entfernt, dann sollte das nicht mehr vorkommen. Danke für den Hinweis! ;)

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
