It's Tuesday, so music stores around the US should be getting soundtrack CDs for upcoming movies. My local Seattle area Camelot, Sam Goody and Wherehouse Music (formerly BlockBuster Music) don't have it.. but expect it possibly next Tuesday. The auspicious Jeff Cope reports that his local Tower Records has it however. You can also order it from Sonic Images here, from CDNow here and from Amazon.com here.
Azeem informs us that Freddie Prinze will be on 'Good Day LA' in the Los Angeles, California area on Tuesday. It could be on as early as 7 am on FOX, so you'll have to be on the ball to catch this one.
Our Media Specialist, Hadrian, has begun extracting music from Kilrathi Saga in order to compile and make available the various tracks from the WC games. He has released WC1 music right now and will be releasing some WC2 tracks soon (releases will be spread out to avoid overloading traffic). Music in the Files area will also eventually be moved over to the new Music area.
The Wing Commander Movie Soundtrack is now avaliable for mail ordering at the Sonic Images Webpage. It may be in stores too. Click here to go right to the order page.
Dan's Wing Commander Movie Site posted one of the recent commercial trailers... you can grab it here.
Various people have spotted the official magazine all over the place. I've yet to find a copy here in Maryland, but I expect to pick up one in Austin on Thursday. SXGlory reports that they should appear in comics stores by Wednesday.
The below bit of semi-depressing news was posted to the Star Wars official site earlier... ten dollars and a copy of the Junior novel says it's not true, though.
The new trailer will be placed into general release, running on a wide variety of films over the coming weeks. Contrary to speculation, it will not be attached to any particular film, including Wing Commander, and in fact may not even play with Wing Commander. There is no assurance the trailer will play with any particular movie and you will need to contact your local theater for information on where the trailer will run in your area.
Peter Telep posted a status update about his new Wing Commander books at agwc... check it out...
Finished the final revision of the book on Sunday. It will be on my editor's desk on Tuesday morning, and that I'll be screening WC here in Orlando.
Working now on Pilgrim Truth, the last in what I've envisioned as a three book arc that chronicles the Pilgrim stories. I've stayed in this area so that I wouldn't cross over into any of Bill Forstchen's territory.
Let me tell you, I'm having a total blast writing these books. If I get the time, maybe I'll drop a little paragraph or so teaser...
Go see the movie! Go buy the book!
Chris McCubbin also posted to agwc, requesting that people post reviews of the Confederation Handbook to Amazon. I'll get mine up soon...
Many, many people have spotted Day Four Wing Commander commercials - it has some slight scene changes...
