Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer reportedly arriving on Friday

22 November 2014 11:12 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past we’ve heard several rumours about the impending trailer for Disney and Lucasfilm’s hugely-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens; there’s been the obligatory alleged trailer description, along with reports that it will make its debut in cinemas with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies on December 17th. However, it seems we may not have to wait that long…

According to a rumour on Reddit, Disney is looking to launch the first trailer this Friday with a special even that will see it shown before every movie in 100 U.S. theaters this weekend, starting on Friday. Apparently said theaters have been told that Big Hero 6 has to be shown at the earliest showtime on each of those days, with the studio no doubt looking to boost the takings of its animated Marvel adaptation by capitalising on the Star Wars fever.

Rumoured trailer description for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

17 November 2014 10:29 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 »

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens': What Does It Mean?

6 November 2014 3:30 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, Lucasfilm and Disney announced the official title of Star Wars: Episode VII: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Soon after, intense speculation began. What does the title mean? And do we already know? There have been a number of different rumors and spoilers flooding the internet over the course of the past year, with story details reaching a fever pitch as principle photography came to a close this past week.

While most of the spoilers up until this point have all been taken with a grain of salt, this new title seems to indicate that there is some truth buried in there. Especially in light of new plot details that surfaced earlier this morning. In fact, if everything we've heard about the movie leading up to this point proves to be true, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a quite encompassing title on many levels, and »

Shortly after wrapping principal photography, Lucasfilm revealed the official Star Wars: Episode VII title, Star Wars: The Force Awakens!  Without getting into spoiler territory, it does line up with some of the rumors in circulation and it also just makes sense.  It's been 10 years since our last Star Wars film and The Force Awakens does sell this one as a powerful return.  Plus, it certainly doesn't hurt that it's also just a nice straightforward and easy-to-spell title, too.

Star Wars: Episode VII Gets An Official Title

6 November 2014 9:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After enough rumors and speculation to sink a ship, Disney has revealed that the official title for the seventh episode of Star Wars will be Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

News comes by way of the film’s official Twitter account, which announced the news only a few days after filming on the project officially wrapped up.

Walt Disney Pictures (@DisneyPictures) November 6, 2014

Now comes the fun part where the Internet weighs in on what The Force Awakens could possibly mean. Interestingly, it looks as though the sequel has dropped the numerical label that the original films adhered to, instead opting for a plain and simple title. That’s most likely down to the fact that, with a new Star Wars film arriving every year after 2015, the moviegoing audience might feel a bit jaded »

'Star Wars: Episode VII' has a title: 'The Force Awakens'

6 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

If you feel a disturbance in the Force, it's millions of voices suddenly crying out the new title of Star Wars: Episode VII -- The Force Awakens. The reveal comes as the movie finishes its final day of shooting (with many more months of post-production to come.) Now the heavy-duty fans will weigh in, and their judgment tends to be far less forgiving than The Emperor or Darth Vader. The one thing we can all agree on is it beats the hell out of The Phantom Menace, and although it strikes a little close to the vanilla side it may »

'Star Wars: Episode VII' Has a Title: 'The Force Awakens'

6 November 2014 4:24 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Today, Disney quietly revealed that "Star Wars: Episode VII" has a title - and that it's completed principal photography. Next December, get ready for... "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens." Y'all ready for this?

To be honest, we're not super thrilled with this title. But we are thrilled that it has a title. "Star Wars" titles have, characteristically been pulpier in nature, giving a welcome, humorous throwback to the serialized Saturday matinees that informed them so heavily. They are usually about a person ("The Phantom Menace" alludes to the shadowy soon-to-be Emperor, "A New Hope" and "Return of the Jedi" are both about Luke, and "Revenge of the Sith" is, of course, about the Emperor) or a specific movement ("Attack of the Clones" refers to the Clone Wars while "The Empire Strikes Back" is about the Galactic Empire tightening the noose around the Rebels). "The Force Awakens" could refer to a character, »
