Yesterday we announced Wine Wars, sure to be this summer’s and 2008’s, big blockbuster. Here is another preview of a scene from the movie:
We catch up with Luke Skysaddle and Eno Juan. They have escaped Imperial Oaktroopers and outrun the evil Empire’s Imperial Fruit Bombers by making the leap into hyperspace in the Millennium Magnum with the aid of the ship’s Captain, Han Zello, a renegade mercenary winemaker and his partner/co-pilot, Chewy.
Meanwhile, aboard the Oak Star, Princess Bonny watches helplessly as the entire vineyards of the planet Vielles Vignes are destroyed in one brief moment by a massive infusion of oak rays that emanate from the Star.
Back on the Millenium Magnum, Luke and Eno Juan sit hunched over a number of soil samples, examining each one when Eno Juan suddenly clutches his chest and staggers.
Luke: Eno, what’s wrong? Are you all right?
Eno Juan: I felt a great disturbance in the Terroir. It was as if millions of grapes suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly crushed. I fear something terrible is underfoot.
Eno Juan sits there and rubs his forehead, appearing to be in a trance. Slowly he looks up at Luke.
Eno Juan: Luke, you’d better get on with your analysis exercises.
Han Zello enters the room.
Han: Hey, I told you I’d outrun those Imperial Fruit Bombs!
Luke continues examining the soil samples and Eno Juan watches him.
Han: Well don’t everyone thank me at once.
Eno Juan: Luke, remember that a Vin de Garde can feel the Terroir flowing through him and into his wines.
Luke: You mean it controls your actions?
Eno Juan: Partially, but it also reacts to the way you vinify the grapes.
Han: Look kid, hokey religions and ancient techniques are no match for a good dose of new oak.
Luke: You don’t believe in Terroir, do you?
Han: Kid, I’ve flown from one end of this galaxy to the other. I’ve cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis. I’ve pumped a lot of pain down in Tattooine. I’ve seen a lot of strange stuff but I’ve never seen anything to make me believe there’s some all-powerful character controlling how a wine tastes. There’s no mystical force field that controls the wines I make!
Eno Juan smiles quietly.
Han: It’s all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.
Is it? Stay tuned for more previews from Wine Wars. Coming during the summer of 2008 to a theater or drive in near you! Or a theater, at least.
