    To get a clear vision of what TROS will look like we have to look at Daniel Mindel's work. There was already posted a lot of TFA, but he made many movies.

    I love Shanghai Noon (the correct spelling). I wish they'll do a 3rd one but I don't think Jackie really like doing those movies.

    In Germany it's called Shang-High Noon (probably because of the pun):

    But yeah, I also love this movie and I'm waiting for a third one for years now.

    Gotcha, I never knew that. I guess the US went with the actual City name.

    Personally, the one thing I really can't complain about in the ST is the cinematography. There are some amazing shots, especially in The Force Awakens, which you've pointed out.

    I love that shot of the Falcon, the desert of Jakuu and two ties shooting at it (from the teaser).

    And I meant to say in my last post that I think IX looks fantastic as well. There are definitely a ton of shots that just look cool. As long as the story can match the visuals, this should be a great film.

    Someone else may have also noted this, or maybe it is just me, but before this splits from jungle to wreckage, it sure looks like flashback-Leia at first rather than Rey. (Admittedly, it could just be "stunt-double Rey"... but how cool would this flashback of Leia be?)

    As a kid, I thought Leia in real action during the early part of ROTJ was so freaking cool... she was truly in the mix, so to speak. Not just shooting-a-hole-in-a-side-panel-leading-to-a-trash-compactor involved... or attached-to-hero-Luke's-hip Leia swinging across the absent bridge in ANH involved. Nope. She was a giant-slug-choking bad-ass. Anyway, I would love that kind of true look-back into her "bad-ass" days ... for Leia...

    ... and for Carrie.

    It's a stunt double... she's even wearing that red silk on her wrist, the video is mirrored however, it should be on her left wrist and the saber is on her right hip, most likely they flipped it to fill in the right to left Rey sequence that ends with that DS wreckage leap.

    That being said... there could be a sequence were Luke describes training he did with Leia and we see flashback glimpses of it and then we connect it to the training we see Rey doing that looks almost identical... but I doubt it.

    Great movie. It's been too long since I've done an MI marathon.

    The movie wasn't bad, but this scene was one of the best in it.

    Beautiful cinematography! Great movie! I need to rewatch it! It's a shame that there's no real sequel to this movie...

    Don't forget Poe and Finn running through a FO base (ship?) shooting and running.

    Understood. But I think I like the idea of splicing Leia-flashback to modern-day-Rey-training montage better. It would be an impactful way to connect the characters and fill in some more about Leia.

    We know more about post-ROTJ Luke and Han than we do Leia... other than she has led the Resistance as a figure-head. Kinda boring really. I would love to know what happened after Luke said "In time, you will learn to use it (the Force) as I have."

    After all, this was supposed to be Leia's movie in the same way the first two movies of the ST were for the original two of the big three. Give us more flashback Leia like THIS. Please.

    All the modern productions are beautiful, no question about it. They all are top notch, but I'd probably say TFA was the best in this department. The skill these people have now is amazing.

    Love all the speculations before the film but for me it seems clear to be Rey here. We see Rey training and running through the same jungle and in the jump she is dressed exactly like Rey. I don't see the point dressing Leia like Rey in a flashback.
    But this is the funny thing about speculations and rumors. At the end it could be what we didn't think ;)

    People noticed the switch in which of sides the holster and saber are on in the run up to the leap. So not exactly the same... gun holster on right — saber on left... in part of the scene it look like the saber is on the right and holster is on the left. But yes, everything else is the same... so we know it's been flipped.

    Yes! To me the Sequel Trilogy represents the triumph of using actual film stock. Digital cinematography is unquestionably a powerful medium, but to my eyes, it still can't achieve what can be accomplished with celluloid. I'm so grateful that Lucasfilm, Abrams and Johnson opted to shoot the Sequel Trilogy on film.

    For anyone interested in the cinematography of Episodes VII and VIII, I highly recommend checking out two issues of American Cinematographer magazine. The February 2016 and February 2018 issues featured in-depth reporting of the production, photography, and visual effects for Episodes VII and VIII, respectively. I'm really looking forward to reading this February's issue!

    How do you know it's a trilogy? I let Kylo answer this question:

    Gifs of the new TV spots are hard to find. I was looking for one of Rey in the snow and the Knights on Ren on top of that mesa.
