The photos give us our first look at Lego versions of Yoda, R2-D2, C-3Po, Mace Windu, Obi-Wan Kenobi and The Emperor, while the trailer offers fans some alternate takes on some of the franchise's more memorable moments, including a much different fate for Jar-Jar Binks. The series will consist of five 22-minute episodes, debuting Monday, July 6 at 6:30 Pm on Disney Xd.
As its title suggests, Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales is a re-telling of the Star Wars universe through the eyes of C3P0 and R2D2. Following their victory celebration in the Ewok village on Endor, seen at the close of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, »
Have you ever wondered what would happen if The History Channel finally pried their last finger off reality and slipped into the abyss? Machinima has. With their new Real Fake History series, Machinima plan to tackle everything from the destruction of New York in “The Avengers” to the destruction of Hong Kong in “Pacific Rim.” But for their inaugural run, no franchise offers a rich mine of mockumentary material like Star Wars.

A few months ago we reported on Disney Xd picking up a five-part series of 22-minute episodes called Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales, and now its premiere is nigh. The animated series will tell the the stories of the Star Wars universe in chronological order, starting with Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and concluding with Episode VII: Return of the Jedi (they really should have done the machete order). The stories will all been seen through the eyes of C-3Po and R2-D2, in a way that sounds a little bit like A Christmas Carol. Check out four new images from the new series below (you can click on them for the full high res), along with a synopsis of the first episode.

Despite sharing a developer in Dice and many of the genre’s tropes, Star Wars Battlefront is shaping up to be an entirely different experience than the Battlefield franchise.
Ditching the likes of squads and classes, Dice is aiming to break new ground in the Star Wars video game scene, and the acclaimed Swedish dev spoke of the ways in which it differs from Battlefield – and its legacy – during an interview with The Guardian.
“We have a strong legacy with Battlefield, but we did not want this to be a Battlefield game – we wanted it to have a heart and soul of its own. We came at it from a very different angle. We know that the core audience of a game like this is different to the Battlefield audience. There’s a crossover, but Star Wars fans expect a Star Wars game, not a Battlefield game. We looked at what Star Wars stands for, »

With cinematic juggernauts such as Terminator, Jurassic Park and Star Wars all returning to the fray for 2015, Hollywood and the moviegoing audience are – for better or worse – basking in 80s nostalgia. Of all the IPs to witness a second coming, though, it appears as though Robert Zemeckis’ beloved classic Back to the Future won’t be one of them, after the acclaimed filmmaker claimed such a reboot would only happen over his dead body.
In a recent interview with The Guardian, Zemeckis made it clear than any potential remake – however it is handled – could potentially tarnish a cinematic classic. Currently, both the director and his co-writer Bob Gale hold the rights to the motion picture following a deal with Universal and Amblin Entertainment at the time, meaning that the buck stops at them when it comes to Back to the Future-related films.
Hypothetically, Zemeckis went on to say that »

Warning: the power of Christ may compel you while watching the new featurette from the Neveldine-directed film The Vatican Tapes. Also showcased in this round-up: "The Battle of Endor" episode of the Real Fake History series and a teaser for Fear the Walking Dead.
"The Vatican Tapes follows the ultimate battle between good and evil- God versus Satan. Angela Holmes is an ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It’s all up to Father »

The actor caught up with Digital Spy at the press night for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in London last night (June 30), but we were hard pushed to get new information from him.
It was recently revealed that Serkis will play Supreme Leader Snoke in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and a picture from the set has led fans to believe he may be the film's big villain.
When asked how evil his character is, Serkis laughed and said: "I can't tell you anything about my character. I'd love to, but I can't. But hey, it's not long to go now!"
Serkis is no stranger to big movie franchises, and starring in the likes of Avengers: Age of Ultron and the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies has given him time to perfect his poker face. »
UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 26th June to Sunday 28th June 2015…
Universal Pictures continued its stellar box office run this past weekend with the release of the Despicable Me spinoff Minions, which dethroned Jurassic World at the top of the UK chart with a solid opening weekend of £11,558,946. That’s a record for the franchise, surpassing the £9.95 million debut of Despicable Me 2, and the biggest ever three-day opening for an animated film on these shores.
In other good news for Universal, Jurassic World pushed its UK haul to £48.9 million and counting, making it the biggest UK release of the year, and indeed the biggest film since Skyfall back in 2012.

Has it really been 30 years since Back to the Future first arrived in cinemas? The '80s classic is one of those films that stands firm under repeat viewings, retaining its humour, heart and on-point performances from Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd and co. Simply put, there isn't a frame out of place in Back to the Future.
Though Robert Zemeckis's film still feels as fresh as ever, the world has changed dramatically across the three main periods the Back to the Future series spans. Digital Spy digs deep into the history books to find out how the world looked in 1955, 1984, and where we are now.

Let’s see you talk your way out of This one, flyboy. In issue #8 of Star Wars, Stuart Immonen (Ultimate Spider-man) takes over as the regular artist for a departing John Cassaday. While the issue doesn’t have a solid street date yet — a stand-alone issue about Ben Kenobi is next on deck — Immonen is hard at work picking up where Cassaday left off. Particularly with Han Solo. Warning: Spoilers For Star Wars #6 Beyond This Point! . . . When we last left Han and Leia, they’d just been joined by a third party: Han’s wife Sana. While the details of their relationship are still under wraps, these pencils from Immonen indicate the Solo spouses are definitely not on the best terms. Image Credit: Marvel Entertainment. Art by Stuart Immonen Sana doesn’t seem to take much of a shine to Leia either. Fed up with this lover’s quarrel — and »

Cartoons are like any other medium: they run the gamut from “Oh God I can feel myself getting dumber from watching this” to “This show better get nominated for an Emmy.” The latter category has recently been dominated by animation created specifically for adults. Despite being mostly overlooked year after year, there are several kid-oriented shows hiding humor and melancholy just under the wacky hijinks. Baking heavy or adult subject matter into a cartoon is nothing new. From “Looney Tunes” to “Tiny Toons” and beyond, animators have been layering their stories for decades, saving parents and guardians from wishing to shuffle off this mortal coil rather than be subjected to another episode. While the pickings in 2015 are slimmer than in other years — “Legend of Korra” has ended its run and we’re a far cry from the heyday of “Cartoon Cartoons!” on Cartoon Network — there are at least five animated »

Warner Bros. is getting ready for their big Comic-Con 2015 presentation next week, which will most likely include Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, even though no specific films were confirmed quite yet for their Hall H presentation on Saturday, July 11.

The term "must see" can be somewhat dubious. Sure, we think there are 15 movies worth seeing but that doesn't necessarily mean Joe or Jill Moviegoer is going to agree with us. However, in this day and age when there's no shortage of movie content, an overabundance of scripted TV programming, and the number of hours in the day are still a paltry 24, a list like the "15 must see movies of 2015" isn't just necessary, it's vital. Throughout your day there are many pieces of content competing for your eyeballs. Whether you are in a movie, watching TV, on the computer, your tablet or your smartphone, there is always something to see. However, is it a Must See? We feel that the following 15 movies more than meet that criteria.

The next “Star Trek” adventure has been christened.
The third film in the rebooted adventures of James Kirk and crew has been dubbed “Star Trek Beyond,” Paramount said Tuesday. Justin Lin, the “Fast & Furious 6″ auteur who is taking over directing duties from a “Star Wars”-bound J.J. Abrams, tweeted the new title along with a sneak peek at the new Starfleet Uniform.
“Star Trek Beyond” continues a directional approach to titling, following 2013’s “Star Trek Into Darkness.” The film brings back Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana, along with series newcomer Idris Elba. It hits theaters on July 8, 2016.
In addition, Paramount said it will release Michael Bay’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” wide on Jan. 15. The picture stars John Krasinski (“The Office”), Pablo Schreiber (“Orange Is the New Black”), and James Badge Dale (“World War Z”). It centers on the attack on the 2012 American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, »

As we learned from one of Community’s best ever episodes, Ken Burns’ heralded documentary films are also ripe targets for parody. Now, Machinima is taking aim at Burns’ signature filmmaking style with a series called Real Fake History, a mockumentary that pretends pop culture stories are historical events.
Each episode of Real Fake History dives into a different pop culture franchise. Across ten installments, the series will visit everything from Starship Troopers to Game of Thrones to Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. The first episode, however, treads upon the familiar nerd territory of Star Wars by examining the Battle of Endor. Narrator Phil Morris (Seinfeld’s Jackie Chiles) leads the way, The Guild co-star Jeff Lewis provides the most comedic punch, and, as you might expect, the camera slowly pans across every single image it encounters. It’s pretty fun stuff, though the commenters seem more interesting in explaining how, »
