When I started working on this post, it was intended as a sort of think-piece regarding Uwe Boll’s Darfur and how its serious, self-important trailer pitches a genocide drama leavened here and there with gunplay and the attempted revival of Edward Furlong’s career. The thing was coming together just fine — if a bit drably, I think — until a quick e-jaunt over to Sci Fi Wire turned up a photograph that totally derailed me. It is, as title of this piece promises, a picture of Carrie Fisher and her body double, sunbathing on the “Tatooine” set of Return of the Jedi. Uwe Boll will have to wait.
At the risk of sounding superficial, I admit to finding this more diverting.
