'Indiana Jones' Easter Egg Discovered in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

3 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been in theaters for 50 days. And new Easter eggs are still being discovered. Today's big reveal is actually pretty cool. Especially since it's tied into Indiana Jones. And it comes at a crucial point in the movie involving Han Solo and Chewbacca. It literally ties Harrison Ford's two iconic characters together in one fail swoop. You just need to know what to 'listen' for.

Director J.J. Abrams has decided to cram so many hidden nods and references in The Force Awakens, that it has become a virtual game for some. And it's a game that requires multiple viewings. Some of the Easter Eggs are so well hidden, though, that they are likely to fly right over your head. Luckily, those involved with the behind-the-scenes work on the film have been eager to share some of their more obscure references. And the Raiders of the Lost Ark »

Screaming rats. Possessed humans. A non-gender specific student astronaut.

Of all the things I was told I can be, I never thought I would ever get a chance to be a student astronaut. I mean, astronaut, yeah, I can do that, but not a student astronaut, let alone one lost in space with screaming rats and possessed humans.

Introducing Lifeline, an interactive text-based story app detailing the adventures of Taylor, a student astronaut who contacts you after Taylor’s ship crashed and is all alone. You lead the character through multiple stories, protecting this random person from the elements and whatever mysteries lie out there in the world.

Just recently named App of the Week on the iTunes store, Lifeline was launched in April 2015 and written by Dave Justus, under 3 Minute Games LLC, but the game is anything but. The first time you play, you abide by real time actions, »

Star Wars: What Do Boba Fett, Imperial Costumes and Eels Have To Do With 'Rogue One?'

5 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This is a column about speculation, spoilers, rumors, hearsay and analyzing the Star Wars Universe. Spoilers, real or imagined, might be found within.  

Let's start by congratulating ourselves : big claps to The Force Awakens for making all that money. I’m not going to be able to say it more concisely than the official press release:

Today, in its 50th day of release, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to cross the $900 million mark at the domestic box office. It is the only film in history to reach this milestone.

In addition, on Saturday (53rd day of global release), Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to reach the $2 billion mark worldwide, becoming only the third film ever to do so and just the second to do it in original release.

We did it, Star Wars fans and creators, we revived the property once again! This time, maybe »

12 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Easter eggs in movies are nothing new. Filmmakers like to put references to other films in their new movies all the time. Sometimes these references are direct, and other times they.re much more subtle. It turns out that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has a reference to Raiders of the Lost Ark in it. Although, you probably didn.t notice underneath the sound of the screaming rathtar. David Acord, sound designer on The Force Awakens, told Nerdist that during the scene where Han Solo and Chewbacca are running down the hall to escape from the rolling rathtar, he added a sound effect from another Harrison Ford movie that harkened back to that moment. Then there.s some other cool things like when the rathtar is rolling down the hallway after Han and Chewie, I put in the sound of Ben Burtt.s boulder roll sound from Raiders of the »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Almost Featured Another Classic Character

2 February 2016 7:29 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Considering how much fan service J.J. Abrams packed into Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it.s difficult to fathom that anything was left on the drawing board. Although certain iconic characters from Star Wars lore play some fairly substantial roles in the film, such as loveable rogue Han Solo (Harrison Ford), others remain absent. As it turns out, one of the more notable character omissions was originally intended to appear in the film. What the character lacks in height, he more than makes up for in wisdom and power.   Et reports that Star Wars: The Force Awakens originally intended to give iconic Jedi Master Yoda (Frank Oz) a cameo. The Force Awakens. editor Maryann Brandon revealed that the filmmakers originally wanted to give Yoda some additional screen time . but that idea was quickly shelved. She said: There was one point where we were actually thinking of having Yoda in »
