Hurricane Sandy

Reject Recap: The Best of Film School Rejects

Last weekend seems like such a long time ago. It seems like it was in another galaxy far, far away, in fact. We now live in this strange new world in which Disney not only owns Lucasfilm but is also putting out a new live-action Star Wars movie in two and a half years. And yet, that’s still not the biggest thing to happen in the last seven days. This is, of course, the destruction of Hurricane Sandy, which has affected the film industry to a degree. For one thing, as we reported, it destroyed a major piece of movie memorabilia — the HMS Bounty replica used in Mutiny on the Bounty and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest — and two human lives with it. Also, a number of films that opened or were supposed to open in limited release in New York City this weekend have been delayed until power is restored to the venues hosting them.

Beyond that, more than one-third of FSR’s readership lives in the area affected by Hurricane Sandy. These are our friends, our fellow movie-lovers. So we want to take a moment to encourage you to do your part. It’s simple: a donation of the cost of a movie ticket ($10-15) could make more of a difference than you’d think. You can donate to any one of these reputable organizations: American Red Cross | Salvation Army | Global Giving

HMS Bounty

As all of us here in the middle and western parts of the country wait anxiously in the hope that our friends and family on the East Coast will be alright through the landfall of Hurricane Sandy, it’s hard not to become inundated with news coverage. One particular story that has a connection to the film world is that of the HMS Bounty, the replica ship that has been used in films such as Mutiny on the Bounty, Treasure Island and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, which was overwhelmed this morning by the oncoming storm 90-miles off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.
