Battle Beyond the Stars (25-Dec-1980)|
Director: Jimmy T. Murakami
Writers: John Sayles; Anne Dyer
Music Composed by: James Horner
Producer: Ed Carlin
Intergalactic tyrant Sador threatens a small planet with annihilation by the Stellar Converter; with the planet's only spacecraft, village farmer Shad recruits a motley assortment of mercenary clichés to mount a defense. Nell, the ship's computer, is the voice of sanity. Retelling of Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai (1954) in the wake of Star Wars (1977), by Roger Corman's production company on a shoestring budget.
