'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Trailer: The Geeky Details You May Not Have Noticed

just now | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens played this morning, it provided me with a truly geeky, communal movie experience in a way only Star Wars can. I was lucky enough to be at the Alamo Drafthouse, who was putting on a special event where founder Tim League had assembled a panel of movie nerds, including Movies.com's own John Gholson, to watch the trailer over and over and then talk about it between rewatches.  At first it seemed like we couldn't possibly spend an entire hour talking about 88 seconds. Ninety minutes later and we were still going strong. And since I was able to stare at freeze frames of this thing in 4K on a huge screen and then debate the meaning and implications of details with nearly 200 friends and strangers, here are...

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Trailer: You've Waited 30 Years to Watch This

just now | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Delivered straight to us from a galaxy far, far away, here it is folks -- the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first big-screen Star Wars sequel in 30 years.  Watch it below. We've waited three decades for the return of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia and friends, and while we still have an entire year to go till the film officially arrives in theaters (on December 18, 2015, that is), director J.J. Abrams has served up a spectacular 88-second teaser that not only promises a return to the Star Wars movies we fell in love with long ago (that shot of the Millennium Falcon gave us chills!), but also a fresh, inspired take featuring a host of characters that will help fuel the franchise for years to come. Ya know, like these guys... Sound...

‘Star Wars Episode VII’ Trailer Hits YouTube After Awkward Release Strategy

14 minutes ago | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Disney may be trying a Jedi mind trick on the online masses, but they certainly didn’t seem happy about it. After several botched attempts at releasing the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer on other platforms, the clip is finally available to view on YouTube. Initially, Disney partnered with Regal Cinemas to release the much-anticipated teaser for The Force Awakens. However, the catch was that Regal would only debut the teaser trailer from November 28-30 in nine different U.S. locations. Only a few hours after Regal’s exclusive “world premiere” announcement, the theater chain updated its list to include 21 more locations where the Star Wars trailer would debut across the United States, for a total of 30 in all. Fans who weren’t able to make it to one of the theaters were presumably going to be left in the dark on the new Star Wars teaser until it was released online. »

Colin Trevorrow & New Website Reveals More ‘Jurassic World’ Details (& Images Too!)

28 minutes ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’ve been so absorbed in Star Wars all day that we’re struggling to pull ourselves away to concentrate on other movie stuff that is happing on this bright Black Friday. Finally we’ve pulled away from it to bring you some news on that other big 2015 release, Jurassic World.

Firstly, director Colin Trevorrow has been speaking to Empire magazine and breaking down that fabulous trailer that we saw online earlier this week. The trailer managed to raise a few questions with a lot of movie fans, and it appears that Trevorrow has started to answer them – starting with the big one; ‘we we be seeing a T-Rex in the movie?’

“You bet your ass you will.” Is his response. What??!!

He also touched on the new, genetically altered dinosaur in the film, where he had the following to say:

“This new creation is what gave me a reason »

31 Screenshots from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer

35 minutes ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Earlier today Lucasfilm unleashed the long awaited trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you haven't seen it yet... why?! Especially since you can watch it right here. Of course, a few Star Wars fans are complaining about the first trailer, but you won't hear any complaints from me! I freakin' loved it. It hit me in all the right spots. The trailer is short, and it's got a lot of quick shots, so I thought I'd take a bunch of screenshots breaking it down for you, so you can spend a little more time looking at what the trailer has to offer. There's not much hidden in these trailers, the visuals are pretty self explanatory. The look of the film is amazing; The stormtroopers look badass; the villain with the lightsaber seems awesomely menacing; and the Millennium Falcon at the end engaging with the Tie Fighters is the icing on the cake. »

Watch 'The Walking Dead' star Tyler James Williams talk about his 'Star Wars' tryout

37 minutes ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Tyler James Williams has one warning: "Do not mess with my family." Williams, who plays Noah on The Walking Dead, is a massive Game of Thrones fan and a self-identifying Lannister. He's also a major Star Wars fan who had a brief (and expensive) flirtation with collecting memorabilia from the iconic franchise. But what priceless opportunity easily outdid anything Williams could have ever found on eBay? The chance to read for The Forces Awakens. Below, Williams spills on his once-in-a-lifetime Episode VII audition, justifies his Lannister love, admits to his TV crush, and name-checks the out-of-this-world action flick that inspired him to become an actor. »

Star Wars: Trailer Breakdown W/Spoilers

38 minutes ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

And now, there is actual footage from the next Star Wars movie out there, and it’s been a long time since 1998’s The Phantom Menace teaser introduced us to the world of that trilogy. This also being the holiday weekend, it’s a bit difficult not to let nostalgia take me while this Star Wars trailer plays, but at a scant 88 seconds, it was made to be re-watched until I could mute that feeling and focus on what was actually happening.

Now that I’ve seen the Millennium Falcon do an in-atmosphere loop a few dozen times, I can check out the trailer for all the reveals and mysteries it contains.

We start with John Boyega in a practical location, which is fantastic for a number of reasons, but for me most resonated as completely opposite of the Gungans In The Mist beginning for The Phantom Menace trailer. Presumably, »

Andy Serkis Says He Worked With Dancers to Give Ultron Life In Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Used Weights to Turn Mark Ruffalo Into the Hulk

1 hour ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now that we've seen the extended trailer, we know that Avengers: Age of Ultron will be bigger than its predecessor and, seemingly, much more cinematic.  We've also got a good sense of what James Spader's Ultron will look and act like (which was sort of a mystery to people like me who haven't read many Marvel comics).  Andy Serkis, who we all know at this point as the reigning celebrity of motion capture (as well as narrator of the new Star Wars trailer), worked a lot on the character as well and helped shape his movements.  He recently discussed that process, along with what it takes to make Mark Ruffalo look like the Hulk. Hit the jump to check out Serkis' comments on the mo-cap in Avengers: Age of Ultron.  The film opens in 3D on May 1, 2015 and also stars Robert Downey Jr.Chris EvansScarlett JohanssonChris Hemsworth, »

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' trailer: A deep dive

1 hour ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's been a little over two years since George Lucas sold the Star Wars universe to Disney. Those two years have been full of tantalizing rumor and ambitious corporate theatrics. We know that Star Wars: Episode VII will take place many years after Return of the Jedi. We know that the original cast will return alongside an all-star squad of up-and-comers. Director J.J. Abrams has subtly pitched VII as a kind of artisanal Star Wars film: Shot on 35 mm film, with an emphasis on practical effects, a soundtrack by John Williams, and a life-sized Millennium Falcon. We know that »

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens official teaser trailer

1 hour ago | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

So, here it is. After the long wait, and various fan-made trailers claiming to be the official trailer, the official Star Wars YouTube channel has now released the first official trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, to coincide with the first showings in select cinemas in the Us. It's only an 88-second teaser, but gives us a terrific sense that...Star Wars is back.

As the gravelly voice-over announces, "There's been an awakening; have you felt it? ...The dark side; and the light..."

As the pace of the trailer quickens, this represents a sense of the fans' awakened excitement at the prospect of new Star Wars films after all this time. Familiar sights like X-Wing fighters, John Williams' classic theme, and the Millennium Falcon (as the camera seems to be having just as much fun as the fans, swooping around like crazy).

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Breakdown – 25 Things You Need To See

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

Lucasfilm

“The Force is strong with this one.” “Impressive, most impressive.” “I never doubted you for a second! Wonderful!” Get your Star Wars-style platitudes at the ready – The Force Awakens trailer has finally been unveiled.

After teasing tweets and a painful number of fan-made fakes, we have finally got our first official glimpse of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the seventh movie in the cinema-defining franchise that looks set to kick-start a whole new Sequel Trilogy.

Two years ago, when news broke about Disney purchasing Lucasfilm and moving a new Star Wars into pre-production no one was sure what to think. Now, having seen eighty-eight glorious seconds of the finished product, it’s clear we’re in for a real treat come 18th December 2015.

There’s a lot more hidden in the trailer than you may first realise, with plot hints and other big reveals hidden amongst the jaw-dropping spectacle. »

Breaking Down the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer: Why Is John Boyega in a Storm Trooper Outfit? And Other Burning Questions

2 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

You’ve no doubt watched the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer a couple of times now.  The teaser is a fantastic introduction to the J.J. Abrams-led new era of the saga, and as with all good teasers, this one has left us with a lot of very exciting questions.  The film’s release is still over a year away so it will likely be a while before much of the story is illuminated (and thankfully so—the less we know going in, the better), but there are still some reasonable assumptions that can be made from the very brief footage gleaned in this debut trailer. After the jump, we break down some of the major points of the Force Awakens trailer and try to addresses burning questions like why is John Boyega in a storm trooper outfit?  What’s Oscar Isaac doing in a fighter ship?  Isn »

'Star Wars' trailer: 7 things we just learned

2 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

You've seen it. You have thoughts. So do we. Below are 7 things we just learned from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, which blew up Black Friday with voom-voom pew-pew-pew glory. 1. There is a triple-bladed lightsaber. Remember when our minds were blown by Darth Maul having a two-sided lightsaber in The Phantom Menace trailer? Not to be outdone, here comes J.J. Abrams with a triple-sided version. Note the light itself is more sparky and flame-like than the usual solid-looking shafts. Also, functionality-wise, the prongs presumably act as added protection. Finally somebody must have said, "Hey, maybe we should »
