Disney’s Star Wars is to have some scenes of the movie shot in ‘actual space’, Colin Trevorrow, who will direct Star Wars IX stated at the Sundance Film Festival. Trevorrow said he would use the IMAX technology and that he would shoot the movie on film rather than digital.
“I asked the question, ‘Is it possible for us to shoot IMAX film plates in actual space for ‘Star Wars,’” he said. “I haven’t gotten an answer yet, but they’ve shot IMAX in space.” The latest of the Star Wars movies – Star Wars: The Force Awakens – has grossed $895.4 million in its seventh weekend of release at home, putting behind it ‘Avatar’, which netted $125 million. On global sale, the “The Force Awakens” finished fourth with $12.6 million for a total of $1.09 billion, trailing behind “Avatar” at $2.03 billion, “Titanic” at $1.53 billion and “Furious 7” at $1.16 billion.
