Abrams’ much-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens get the IMAX treatment. As for WB, however, there are a number of projects that today secured a similar gig.

7 Key Scenes in The Force Awakens Second Trailer

17 April 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The nerd community virtually exploded yesterday morning when Jj Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy revealed the brand new teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  Now that you've had a chance to digest it a few times, let's talk about what all we're seeing and why it's so important! 

I had the good fortune to be in the main event Hall yesterday and watched the trailer reveal live with thousands of other fans, and it was quite the experience.  Sitting their cheering with the crowd and practically bursting with excitement is something I won't soon forget.  That said, even though they played it a couple times, being at the Celebration Hall didn't exactly give me much chance to really think about what I was seeing.  Fortunately, I've had a few chances now to watch it again in a more intimate setting, and can pass on some more information your way »

Gary Collinson on the 2015 superhero box office showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

Before we turn our attention to this year’s line-up of superhero movies, we’ll start as always by casting our eye back twelve months to last year’s predictions, as Marvel continued the build to Avengers: Age of Ultron with Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as launching the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Fox brought together its two X-Men timelines for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony killed the Spider-Man franchise (again) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Last Year’s Prediction - “As for the biggest earner of the year, I can’t look past The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I expect the sequel to pull in around $700 million, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past with around $550 – $600 million apiece (if »

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 »

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.
