Must Watch: First Trailer for Star Wars Geek Drama '77'
I'm not sure why everyone is so fascinated with making movies about Star Wars recently, but I don't mind, I'll see every last one, I'm a big Star Wars geek. I've actually heard of the movie 77 before, back when it was previously known as 5-25-77 - which, for those who don't know, is the exact day that A New Hope first came out. Unlike the movie Fanboys, this is more of a coming-of-age drama than a road trip comedy. There's also a lot of great movie references, as the story is about a wannabe filmmaker whose life changes the moment he sees Star Wars. Every true self-proclaimed geek should be watching this trailer right now.

Alienated, hopeful-filmmaker Pat Johnson's (played by John Francis Daley) epic story about growing up in rural Illinois, falling in love, and becoming the first fan of the movie that changed everything.
77 is both written and directed by Patrick Read Johnson, the very same filmmaker that the movie is about, who previously directed Spaced Invaders, Baby's Day Out, Angus, and is credited for the story on Dragonheart. The film doesn't have a distributor or a release date yet, so we're not sure when or where it'll debut, although it could be at Fantastic Fest. Stay tuned for updates on 77 as they arrive! Thoughts?
