Star Wars: The Concert

Well, it ain’t exactly Bill Murray singing “Star Wars” as Nick Winters on SNL, but maybe the new “Star Wars in Concert” will be just as entertaining.

The concert will feature a symphony orchestra and choir performing John Williams’ music from the six “Star Wars” films. C-3P0 actor, Anthony daniels will narrate the performance live and movie footage will be displayed on a three-story-tall high-definition screen, synchronized to the live music.

“Star Wars in Concert” will kick off its first tour at the Honda Center in Aanaheim, California on October 1st and then travel to several North American cities before going global.

I wonder if Bill Murray will put in an appearance?

From Aliens to Antiques: Huge Prop Auction Scheduled

20th-century-props-2.jpg

If you’re an amateur film maker, want to start your own prop business or simply want to get your hands on some really cool props, now’s your chance.

20th century props, the largest prop house under one roof, is closing its doors after 40 years of business. Founder and owner Harvey Schwartz made the decision to close the company after suffering 12 consecutive months of losses arising from the recession as well as the Screen Actors Guild labor dispute.

You’re sure to find lots of treasures among the warehouse’s 200,000 square feet of over 91,000 pieces.

A public auction will be held on-site and by webcast from July 28-Aug. 1, starting at 9:30 a.m. each day.

So get your wallets out and start bidding on everything from aliens to antiques…here’s a cool video of some of the great items up for grabs. I think I want the Austen Powers escape pod, for starters.

Morena Baccarin to Star in New “V” Series

Morena Baccarin

Great news for V fans – Morena Baccarin has been tapped to play the leader of the aliens in the new series! I think she’ll be perfect for the role.

Morena Baccarin shot to fame as the space companion Inara on Firefly, and she had a popular reoccuring role on Stargate: Atlantis as the god-like Adria. She was rumored to play Wonder Woman a couple of years ago, before WB shelved the project.

And now we get to see her eat rodents as a sexy lizard in disguise! What could be better than that?
