52 Weeks of Star Wars is a weekly photo project starring various characters from the Star Wars franchise. This photo project is a continuation of sorts to my original series; 365 Days of Clones, specially my Cloned Photos mini-series.
Today marks the Thirtieth-First creation in this year long adventure. As the title suggests; 52 Weeks of Star Wars, one new photo will be taken, edited and added to the running total every Sunday. The twist is that all the images will be a recreation of sorts of a previous image. Some; like today, will be a recreation from a movie poster, while others will be recreations of famous images of the 20th century or album covers. There may even be the odd recreation of a painting!
“Ocean’s IV” is my recreation of the 2001 remake of the 1960 Rat Pack film "Ocean’s Eleven" movie poster.
Some of you may be wondering why I chose to create a Cloned Photo base upon this iconic movie poster. Upon first glance, there aren’t really any obvious connections or similarities between the two film series. In fact, one of the films takes place Las Vegas, while the other is in a galaxy far, far away. If you look closer, however, the similarities begin to show themselves… The biggest connections are the relationships between the characters. Obi Wan mentors Luke while Danny Ocean similarly takes Linus Caldwell under his wing. There is also a big brother relationship between Han and Luke. This is similar to Rusty Ryan and Linus‘ relationship. There are others as well… you just have to look.
