Kerrie Lopez from Atom writes in to let us know that Atom.com and Lucasfilm Ltd. have announced the 22 finalists for the 2009 Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge, a contest featuring the best Star Wars-related short digital videos created by fans. Users can view and vote for videos at StarWars.Atom.com from Wednesday, July 1 until Friday, July 10 to determine the Audience Choice Award, which will be presented in a lavish ceremony at Comic-Con San Diego July 24th. Past honorees include such popular hits as “Chad Vader” and “Star Wars Gangsta Rap.”
The bidding war is over, and Universal has won a big screen adaptation of the early video game Asteroids. Given the lack of any story to the game itself, it is pretty much a blank slate for newcomer writer Matthew Lopez (Race To Witch Mountain). Also interesting is that Universal is adapting board games “Battleship” and “Candyland”.
