Watch the First Teaser Trailer For Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens

31 minutes ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The highly anticipated trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (also known as Episode VII) just debuted online, offering the first official look at some of the big characters and exotic places we're going to see when the J.J. Abrams-directed film bows next year. Picking up thirty years after Return of the Jedi left off, The Force Awakens brings back original stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher, though it falls to new additions like John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, and Adam Driver to lead the series into the future (even if that future takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far away). This teaser runs a mere 88 seconds, but as a tasty little morsel of Force-related goodness, who can quibble? Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be out December 18, 2015. »

Watch: The Galaxy Is Disturbed In The First Trailer For 'Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens'

41 minutes ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Alright, it’s finally here. It’s been debated about as premiering in from of “The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies” and Disney’s “Into The Woods,” but Disney/LucasFilm decided to go their own way and debut the first brief teaser trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in theaters first, perhaps as a way to encourage audiences to actually attend one. Lucky for us they also decided to release it online. And it’s pretty short. Just under a minute long, the J.J. Abrams-directed film’s trailer shows each of the lead characters ever so briefly and fades to black and it also gives a quick tease of the Millennium Falcon which will surely produce nerd-boners for some. And of course, this trailer is scored to the classic solemn “Force Theme” by John Williams which honestly gives one chills. And we’ve always said »

First Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Reveals J.J. Abrams’ Sequel

42 minutes ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It's here!  Disney has released the very first Star Wars: The Force Awakens for director J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated sequel, which falls into the franchise as Episode VII if anyone's counting.  As far as teaser trailers go, this one is pretty incredible.  Abrams doesn't simply rely on nostalgia to make this thing exciting, offering up tantalizing teases through some genuinely compelling filmmaking.  As far as character first-looks go, we can clearly see John BoyegaDaisy Ridley, and Oscar Isaac as seemingly "good guys" in full costume, and then an obscured baddie (Adam Driver?).  The money shot of the Millennium Falcon is spectacular, and overall I'm extremely enthused to see a heavy reliance on practical locations and effects work.  This is great, great stuff. Watch the debut Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Harrison FordMark HamillCarrie Fisher, Lupita Nyong’o, »

Watch: Rare 1967 Trailer For Stanley Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey' With Douglas Trumbull Test Footage

1 hour ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This weekend, the first teaser for "Star Wars: Epiosde VII — The Force Awakens" arrives in theaters, more than a year ahead of its release date. And while it might seem like a contemporary phenomenon for trailers to drop an almost absurdly long time before the movie its promoting actually arrives, it's not unprecedented.  Back in 1967, the train started rolling on the campaign for Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey," but here's the thing: filming with the actors only wrapped that September, and the numerous effects shot in the film took nearly two years to complete, finished in 1968, a month before the movie opened. So what could be used for marketing material?  Well, as you'll witness in this vintage trailer, Douglas Trumbull's test footage and some voiceover do the heavy lifting. You'll see an incomplete version of what Bowman sees when he leaves the Discovery One in the »

The First Full Trailer For Shaun The Sheep The Movie

2 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It's a brave film company that puts up its trailer on the same day as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but Aardman are no cowards, so here is the first full look at Shaun The Sheep The Movie. It's bleating marvellous, etc. etc.In this expanded adventure, Shaun and his pals decide to take the day off. That would be fine, except they don’t bother to tell the Farmer where they’re going, causing no end of trouble and leading to the poor, put-upon bloke being carted off to the big city. Shaun and co. must travel to the confusing, chaotic city and help him out.Shaun and his farmyard friends are usually silent (except for the occasional baa, bark or burp), so as you can tell from the trailer, this will be an exercise in a lot of Aardman’s talent for silent film comedy.Mark Burton »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – 7 Predictions For The Trailer

5 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lucasfilm

Today is a red letter day – the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer will be released. Set to be screened in cinemas across America and, as revealed in a relieving tweet from the official Star Wars page, made available immediately online through Apple trailers, it’s got Star Wars fans the world over waiting with bated breath.

Up until now, all audiences have officially glimpsed of the film are two images. Oh sure, there’s been all those concept art leaks, but in terms of official word, fans have had to make do with a black and white cast photo and an episode-less title card. So naturally there’s a painful amount of hype building.

It’s reminiscent of sixteen years ago, when the world got its first look at The Phantom Menace, albeit with fasting streaming speeds and (slightly) more reasonable expectation – we all know how bad things can go. »

10 Best Jokes From Star Wars Movies

6 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lucasfilm

Although enshrined as a seminal piece of pop-entertainment, Star Wars is rarely remembered as being funny. Quite frankly, this isn’t a surprise. Many of its installments are somewhat dour, with limbs getting lopped off, full-scale genocide being alluded to, and Freudian nightmares running amok.

However, underneath its focus on sprawling, intergalactic conflict, the world that George Lucas created actually contains quite a bit of wit. This flair for comedy is rooted in the strength of the film’s characters, not to mention the well-developed world and mythology that the series established over the course of six films.

Now, the actual comedy of the franchise is far more apparent in the original trilogy. In the prequels Star Wars humour became incredibly infantile, with most bits revolving around broad pratfalls by the infamous Jar-Jar, or dry and rather grating shtick between Anakin and his mentor Obi-Wan. This isn’t to »
