‘The Last Starfighter’ Sequel Sizzle Reel Reveals Concept Art and a Title: ‘The Last Starfighters’



$1:
Screenwriter Gary Whitta has been working on a sequel to The Last Starfighter for a few years now, and he just revealed a sizzle reel for the potential movie. Using the title The Last Starfighters, the sizzle reel consists of concept art from Matt Allsopp, who worked on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and music by Christ Tilton (Fringe) reworking Craig Safan‘s score for the original movie. Watch the whole thing below.

Here’s the part of the story where I tell you I’ve never actually seen The Last Starfighter. I’m a child of the ’80s and ’90s, but I confess this one slipped by me. The film was not a box office hit and earned mixed reviews from critics when it arrived in 1984, but it’s developed a following since then, and there’s long been talk of a sequel. One of the people working on that sequel is writer Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), and Whitta just went ahead and uploaded a sizzle reel for that potential sequel.

In the original film, “After finally achieving the high score on Starfighter, his favorite arcade game, everyday teenager Alex Rogan (Lance Guest) meets the game’s designer, Centauri (Robert Preston) — who reveals that he created Starfighter as a training ground for developing and recruiting actual pilots to help fight a war in space. Whisked away from the banality of his trailer park life to a distant alien planet, Alex struggles to use his video game-playing skills to pilot a real ship, with real lives at stake.”

Mmmmm.

I haven't been that impressed by sequels lately. Although that was a good and somewhat corny movie, I don't see a lot of potential in a sequel.

Probably have to make it a kids movie. These days it would have to be turned grim/dark to get attention. Different era and 80's cheese won't make it these days. I thought the movie was OK in it's own way but it was far, far away from being in the same league as Star Wars or the Trek movies of the same time period.
