Yesterday, a new rumor surfaced that the highly-anticipated first trailer from Star Wars: The Force Awakens will debut with The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, which hits theaters December 17, exactly one year and one day before J.J. Abrams' sci-fi adventure debuts in theaters. Today, however, /Film is reporting that the trailer will not merely debut alongside the final Hobbit movie, with the site teasing Disney's "bigger plans" for the trailer premiere.
Whatever those "bigger plans" are remains to be seen, but the site speculates that it could debut on TV first, using the eagerly-awaited trailer to boost ratings for Disney-owned networks such as ABC, Disney Xd or even Espn. Disney Xd's animated series Star Wars Rebels would be the most logical place for this trailer to debut, should it arrive on TV first before theaters, but it's possible that the trailer could be attached to an »
Few directors can be said to have changed the way films are made, but Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at 83, was one of them. His first film, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), ended decades of Hollywood censorship of adult content and freed the movies for mature language and subject matter ever after. His second film, "The Graduate," was the first serious mainstream movie to feature a rock soundtrack (spawning Simon and Garfunkel's hit "Mrs. Robinson") and, through its casting of Dustin Hoffman, expanded Hollywood's notion of what a leading man ought to look and sound like.
Nichols wasn't born in America (he and his family escaped from Nazi Germany when he was a child), but he was one of the best chroniclers of contemporary America -- its politics, its aspirations, its dreams, its aristocracy, and its successes and failures -- in movies. His youth in Manhattan as the son »

There has been a lot of speculation about when fans may finally get to see the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with the most recent report revealing that the footage will debut within the next four to five weeks. Star Wars 7 News reports today that the trailer will be attached to prints of The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, which hits theaters on December 17.
The site's sourced dubbed "Echo-7" reportedly spoke with a theater manager, who claims that the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens footage will be shown before The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies only in theaters. This was backed up by a Twitter user named @RealReeceDeal, who reportedly spoke with Thomas Gormley, J.J. Abrams' 1st Assistant Director, and posted the following tweet, which was later deleted.

Latino Review has now chimed in with their own spoiler about the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer, which is rumored to debut in the next four to five weeks. According to their sources, the main villain will be revealed for the first time in this short sneak peek.
Apparently, a select group of individuals in Europe were secretly shown the minute long teaser, which is mostly made up of character reveals, both old and new, accompanied by John Williams new version of The Force Theme performed on woodwind instruments. The trailer reportedly ends with a woman's voice whispering 'Wake up!' This is followed by the Millennium Falcom flying towards the audience with its rockets firing. If that's not exciting enough for you, it has now been revealed that one of the characters set to appear in the montage is the main villain, who we've previously »
Earlier today, Badass Digest revealed the details behind the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer, which is said to arrive within four to five weeks. Whenever it debuts, it will definitely be here before the end of the year. Now, a second report from Making Star Wars suggests we may be getting a second teaser trailer with different footage from the movie.
The first Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser is said to be very short, maybe less than a minute in length. It will introduce all of the characters, both old and new, and features recently recorded John Williams music described as 'The Force Theme softly played on woodwinds'. It will end with the Millennium Falcon, firing blasters, coming right at the audience.
Now, Making Star Wars claims we'll see a whole lot more than that in their description of the teaser. Their information comes »
Well I think this wins award for the most tenuous headline for today, but Badass Digest claim they have been given a scoop on the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and have posted a description of it, which you can read below.
Now, of course, this is just a rumour and may or may not be real. Bear that in mind.
If my sources are correct (and this is a big If. These sources have been mighty reliable in the past, and if they’re wrong I believe they’re wrong honestly, ie they’re not bullshitting me), it’ll be short. And when I say short, I mean one minute long. It’s going to have The Force Theme played on woodwinds, softly, over flashing images of the main leads, each fading to black. There’s no dialogue, just reveals of the characters. And then »

Last month, we reported that composer John Williams is recording new music to be used in the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, although it wasn't known when the trailer may debut.

Take a look at the brief trailer description below, then read on for more details.

The release date for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is more than a year away, but that has not stopped everyone involved (and everyone not involved) from talking about it ad nauseam. With so little actual information available on the film, the Internet has been awash in rumors and speculation about who was going to appear, what parts they might play, and what might happen to them. Now we can confirm at least one rumor that has been circulating for some time now: Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd is indeed going to be appearing in the film.
The information comes straight from the Fisher family, actually. Lourd’s grandmother and Fisher’s mother, Debbie Reynolds recently made the announcement when she brought members of her family onstage during her farewell appearance at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas. According to Vegasseven.com (via Comic Book Movie), Reynolds introduced her family, »

During the Summer, a rumour doing the rounds claimed the daughter of Carrie Fisher and Co-Chairman of Creative Arts Agency Bryan Lourd would have a role in Star Wars: Episode VII (now titled "The Force Awakens"), but we never had any confirmation of this. Well now we do...from none other than Carrie Fisher's Mother Debbie Reynolds! After more than 50 years of performing on the Las Vegas Strip, Reynolds welcomed members of her family on stage during her farewell show at the South Point Casino. Here's the report from Vegasseven.com. "They were joined by Debbie’s son/Carrie’s brother Todd Fisher and Carrie’s daughter, Billie Lourd. Debbie mentioned that Carrie and Billie had been working on Star Wars: Episode VII–The Force Awakens with “Harrison Ford… and the other boychik.” It was probably the most tepid applause ever evoked by mention of a Star Wars »

Keith Lemon is a very busy man at the moment - but somehow he still managed to find the time to write not one, but two books! Not only has he released his childhood memoir Little Keith Lemon, but he's also penned a safe-for-little-ones kids' book, The Beaver and the Elephant. To celebrate, we caught up with Keith ("I look worse than Kelly Brook in the morning," he complained) to chat about his books (and how Hugh Jackman inspired them), his new sketch show, why he regrets choosing a beaver for his book, Celebrity Juice and much, much, much more...
1. Keith on... why he wanted to write a childhood memoir
"Well, it's a prequel to the last book I did called Being Keith which is more about the TV years. This one's more about growing up in Leeds rather than telly gossip, whereas the last one was telly gossip. This »
