I always found the Sarlacs beak to be annoying. Why you you have rows of teeth, and then a beak in the middle? I think it would be better just to have the gaping maw and the rows of teeth. Certainly more intimidating without the bit of comedy accociated with why the hell theres a beak. Honestly, what do you want people thinking when they get thrown in there: OMG! Im going to die ARRGG....! or Dude, wtf is up with this beak?

Episode III

REVENGE OF THE SITH

War! The Republic is crumbling
under attacks by the ruthless
Sith Lord, Count Dooku.
There are heroes on both sides.
Evil is everywhere.

In a stunning move, the
fiendish droid leader, General
Grievous, has swept into the
Republic capital and kidnapped
Chancellor Palpatine, leader of
the Galactic Senate.

As the Separatist Droid Army
attempts to flee the besieged
capital with their valuable
hostage, two Jedi Knights lead a
desperate mission to rescue the
captive Chancellor....

the "title crawl text" for every star wars movie (incl. ep 3) can be found here:
http://www.starwars.com/episode-iii/bts ... dexp2.html

and...

The teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith made a lot of fans happy because it looked so good. It also made those same fans not-so-happy when they realized that Sith is still months away.

Now, word has come from TheForce.net that the next Revenge of the Sith trailer will debut in theaters on March 11th and that it will be screened along with prints of Fox’s animated comedy Robots. Robots, by the way, features the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi himself, Ewan McGregor.

Of course, this date is subject to change – but that May 19th release date definitely is not.

the image at the following url kinda spoils the entire movie in the same manner that dvd chapter titles might spoil a movie. or atleast so i'm told (i've tried not to look at it a whole lot, heh):

a new poster can be found here:

http://starwars.com/episode-iii/release ... 50308.html

also, there's some speculation that this episode of star wars may recieve a higher rating from the MPAA than any previous star wars has (ie. PG-13 instead of PG), as evidenced by this:

http://comingsoon.net/news/topnews.php?id=8705

additionally, here's a new trailer (i think it's the same one that aired during the OC):

http://downloads.scifinews.de/cat_248.html (only the ones that say deusitch by them are in german).

finally (i don't know where this is from),
We are just over two months away before the last of the Star Wars films hits theaters worldwide and less than a month before the Sith merchandise hits the shelves including the latest John William soundtrack.

As a special treat to our readers we have been provided with the titles from the Revenge of the Sith soundtrack. Minor spoilers ahead!

Star Wars: Episode 3 apparently broke records on opening day:

Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith grossed a record $50 million from its first 24 hours in North American theaters, the highest box-office tally ever for a single day, the Reuters news service reported. Opening Thursday on some 9,400 screens in nearly 3,700 U.S. and Canadian theaters, Episode III generated $16.5 million in ticket sales from sold-out debut midnight showings packed with costumed fans and went on to accumulate $50,013,859 in receipts by day's end.

The unprecedented sum easily surpassed the previous opening-day box office record set last June bySpider-Man 2 ($40.4 million) and the $44.8 million single-day benchmark Shrek 2 grossed a year ago in its fourth day of release, Reuters reported.

Also, a prequel to episode 1 might come out, someday...

He says he's finished, but like a two-year-old on the Loo - has he really?

George Lucas tells a scooper for Cinescape that in the back of his noggin' he has an idea for another add-on to the "Star Wars" movie series : A prequel to "The Phantom Menace".

Nope, not the adventures of young Jar Jar Binks building an underwater haven - but the tales of the Jedi regaining control of the universe from the many Dark Lords some 88 years before Anakin Skywalker's bowl cut ever graced the earth.

Yoda - who was instrumental in the effort - would apparently have a headlining role.

Granted, Lucas, now 60, says he won't be captaining such a ship if it ever happens though. What's the bet FOX is going to lock him in a room, tie him to a chair and request he does anyway though?

Personally, I say go the sequel route - earring adorned Harrison Ford back as vest wearing Solo, whiny Skywalker training Jedi Tykes, C3P0 getting into trouble at Mardis Gras - much more interesting : and Hey, we've already got "Knights of the Old Republic" the video-game to serve as background info on the pre-Anakin days.

Meanwhile, "Revenge of the Sith" hogs the screen at every multiplex and is making quite a packet in doing so - it's now one of the biggest films ever. Yep, bypassed "Mannequin" about five minutes into it's first screening.


And here are some easter eggs in ep3.

George just leave it alone now that he's completed the series? It'll ruin it if he makes any more movies. Books, games, and comics, and toys, and junk can keep going, but no more movies.

Looks like they add about as much to episode 3 as all of episode 3 did, hehe :)
