23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On Thursday, Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy and Episode VII director J.J. Abrams gave us our latest peek at December’s hotly-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens with the release of the second teaser for Disney’s first Star Wars offering.

Well, this won’t come as much of a surprise, but the trailer has shattered all records when it comes to online views, with the Disney announcing that it was watched over 88 million times in its first 24 hours. The previous record was held by Fast & Furious 7’s trailer, which racked up 62 million views over the same timeframe this past November.

Watch Matthew McConaughey react to the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer

17 April 2015 11:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As it turns out, Matthew McConaughey is a really big Star Wars fan, and was just one of many to go on an emotional rollercoaster while watching the new trailer for The Force Awakens. At least, that’s what this new video mashup would have us believe:

Good luck trying to watch Interstellar again without giggling at the thought of this video…

Video and Pics From Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer & Celebration

17 April 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It was a roar heard around the galaxy.

The latest trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was unveiled on Thursday with fans watching it on YouTube and Facebook more than 25 million times. The buzz on it is insane!

Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaacs as well as veterans of the original saga Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, and Peter Mayhew joined director J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy (producer) as they kicked off Star Wars Celebration and gave those assembled at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, CA a first look.

Now that the Force is back, it left millions of fans dissecting every inch of the new trailer. What’s with the new weapons? Who was Mark Hamill referring to? Will it be some reincarnation thing using the force? Is it the reason the force has awakened? And will Abrams include Darth/Anakin in the 7th film. »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Will Introduce The Empire As “New Order,” Rebel Alliance Now The Resistance

17 April 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From the off-set, the inspired second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awaken made it crystal clear that J.J. Abrams’ upcoming sequel would take place years after the events of Return of the Jedi. Heck, even the haunting opening shot included a downed Star Destroyer, crashed on Rey’s arid home planet of Jakku, hinting that the legacy of the old trilogy will underpin Abrams’ rebooted universe as opposed to influencing it directly.

As a matter of fact, it now appears that the totalitarian Empire will be referred to as the New Order, while the Rebel Alliance has been rebranded as simply The Resistance. To reflect this change, each faction has witnessed their respective logos be tweaked, too, with the most prominent being the New Order’s blood-red banner glimpsed from yesterday’s trailer. It’s a neat, wholly welcome change, and one that marks a new era for »

Jimmy Kimmel’s Guillermo Interviews J.J. Abrams for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

17 April 2015 8:09 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Beyond the opening panel, there was at least one other interview with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams at yesterday's Star Wars celebration in Anaheim. Guillermo, from the Jimmy Kimmel show, donned some rags from a galaxy far, far away in order to speak with Abrams and ask him the truly pressing questions. If you're still riding the buzz from that amazing trailer, I think you'll find the time to enjoy Guillermo asking Abrams essential stuff like, "is Chewbacca a bear or a dog?" Also, J.J. reveals whether or not he has been probed and tastes some space juice (aka Patron). Watch the interview below. And be sure to check out some trailer screengrabs and our high resolution images from the film. You can also click here for 17 things we learned from the Celebration panel, and or go here to see the first poster. The film stars Harrison Ford, »

'Star Wars 7' Teaser Poster & Behind-the-Scenes Photos

16 April 2015 6:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that Disney and LucasFilm will debut the first teaser poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens during the opening kickoff event of Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California, which runs from April 16 through April 19. Director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy were on hand to present this one-sheet to the fans assembled at the Anaheim Convention Center, and now everyone else can check out the poster for themselves. The director and producer also debuted the first trailer for this highly-anticipated movie, which will be attached to prints of Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1.

Way back in May 2014, we reported that poster artist Drew Struzan, who created the posters for all six Star Wars movies, was coming out of retirement to craft the one-sheet for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That report was never confirmed, though, and this latest poster is just the logo that we've seen before. »

‘Star Wars’ Fans Giddy at New Footage, Cast Members

16 April 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With six films, nearly 40 years of history and a decade of anticipation since their last film, the keepers of the “Star Wars” franchise might have been sweating the continued rollout of “Episode VII” Thursday at the Star Wars Celebration convention in Anaheim.

They need not have worried. A crowd of more than 5,000 reacted rapturously to director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy and, especially, to the latest trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

“It was amazing. I just had goose bumps and my heart was racing,” said Kirk Miller, a 23-year-old student from Porterville, who left home at 2 a.m. to be at the Star Wars Celebration event. Miller,  noticeably hoarse from screaming his approval, said his favorite moment came at the end of the trailer, when original “Star Wars” characters Han Solo and Chewbacca appeared. “Han said ‘It’s good to be home,’ and that’s basically »

Thn Watches The Star Wars Celebration Panel Live From Leicester Square

16 April 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

You’ll hopefully excuse me if this comes across a little disjointed. You see, I’m still recovering from the emotional rollercoaster that was the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel, live streamed from Star Wars: Celebration in Anaheim to countries and cities around the world – including, of course, London, and Leicester Square’s Empire Cinema.

Walking into the IMAX screen, we were immediately greeted by a pair of Stormtroopers and everyone’s favourite droid duo, C-3Po and R2-D2. Not long after, everyone’s favourite Star Wars veteran Warwick Davis (Wicket W. Warwick, Return Of The Jedi) took to the stage for some pre-show entertainment, including a Star Wars quiz (which featured some bloody tough questions, I might add – even for this grizzled Star Wars nerd) and a costume contest.

At 17:55 GMT, Warwick stepped off the stage and the lights dimmed. Five minutes later, on came the live stream. »
