Carrie Fisher, best known for playing Princess Leia Organa in the ‘Star Wars’ saga, has died at the age of 60 following a cardiac arrest suffered on a plane travelling from London to Los Angeles. A family spokesman released a statement on behalf of Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd, which said: “It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 (PDT) this morning. Following her heart attack on Friday 23 December, Fisher was rushed to hospital where she remained in a critical condition over Christmas.
Want to do a cool shot of a camera following Bourne as he jumps from a roof through a window the floor below? Don’t bother with special effects, just put a guy on a harness, give him a camera and then make him jump right after the stuntman. Director James Cameron tested the boundaries of puppetry for this sequel, by putting two puppeteers inside the 14-foot puppet’s midsection to work the four arms and then hanging it from a crane.
‘Star Wars’ fan Kurt Rauffer has created a credits sequence for 1980’s 'The Empire Strikes Back’, in the style of the James Bond series. Set to Radiohead’s unused theme for last year’s 'Spectre’ (we’ll never forgive Sony for picking Sam Smith’s song over it) the video uses iconic imagery from the series, stylised to fit the song and intention of Rauffer’s work. “I really wanted to play on the concept of Luke trying to find himself and true purpose, so the music and inspiration felt fitting,” Rauffer writes in the video’s description.
