Zac Efron in 'We Are Your Friends.' Weekend box office: 'Straight Outta Compton' to beat weak competitors, but still far from being top blockbuster directed by black filmmaker If you thought last weekend was bad at the U.S. and Canada box office, you should see what's in store for this weekend, Aug. 28-30, '15. For starters, only one movie, F. Gary Gray's sleeper hit Straight Outta Compton, is expected to earn more than $10 million. The rest – and that includes Zac Efron, Owen Wilson, Pierce Brosnan, and the Power of (Christian) Prayer – will perform quite powerlessly indeed. In case Straight Outta Compton reaches the box office gurus' estimated $15 million, it will get close to the $140 million mark. Bear in mind there's no guarantee that will happen; despite basically no competition, the drop-off rate of Gray's hip hopping film was steeper than expected last weekend. Now, some have reported »

When Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens this December, it jumps ahead 30 years after the end of Return of the Jedi. That.s a long time, and as we.re well aware of the pace at which technology evolves, things are bound to have changed quite a bit. And now we know that includes a new version of the Imperial Star Destroyer, and because that.s not scary enough on its own, it has a terrifying name to boot. Just a warning, we may get into Spoiler territory beyond this point. Just wanted you to know so you can plan accordingly. The folks at Star Wars 7 News got their hands on a photo from an upcoming Star Wars book called Star Wars: Ships of the Galaxy. It.s one of the many Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens books coming out over the next few months. »
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jj Abrams hotly-anticipated continuation of the classic space saga, is fast approaching. We're mere months away from heading back to a galaxy far, far away, but there's still plenty of information floating in the ether about this sequel. Here's everything you need to know...
John Boyega is a Jedi and Kylo Ren Isn't a Sith
A video posted by Digital Spy (@digitalspy) on Aug 28, 2015 at 2:55am Pdt
A special Instagram teaser gave us a look at John Boyega's Fin wielding a blue lightsaber, allegedly the one that once belonged to Luke Skywalker. Who trained him? We don't know (possibly Luke), but what is known is that he's facing down Kylo Ren in a forest.
Those who thought that Kylo was a Sith Lord will be surprised to learn that he's in fact a "Knight of Ren". According to Jj Abrams, he works »
The marooned Star Destroyer half buried in sand was one of the most extraordinary images from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Until then, the vessel had only been seen gliding above planets, a razor sharp juggernaut that specialized in overpowering inferior ships. Now, Electronic Arts is providing a first look at the battle which took place after one crashed-landed on a desert planet following the Rebels' victory at Endor. This image from the Battle of Jakku is the first of two pieces of promo art from the upcoming video game Star Wars Battlefront, arriving on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 17.
The Battle of Jakku will be one of several locations featured in Star Wars Battlefront, and the images below show that the conflict which once engulfed the galaxy remains alive and well. From the smoldering wreckage of the fallen giant to the X-wing being used as cover »

Come November, EA and Dice will reboot a dormant franchise of their own with Star Wars Battlefront, and though the shooter will focus on events that occurred during the original trilogy a few generations ago, the studios won’t turn their back on the movie universe entirely. In fact, thanks to The Battle of Jakku Dlc, Battlefront will actively tie in with J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens, focusing on the battle between the Empire and the Republic in and around the time period of Return of the Jedi.
Endor may have acted as the focal point in the adorned threequel, but such a titanic battle had ramifications across the galaxy, hence the reason we see the downed Star Destroyer in the latest teaser trailer for The Force Awakens. For Dice Concept Artist Anton Grandert, the prequel add-on allows the creative team to flesh out an important part of the lore. »

It's finally here! New Star Wars: The Force Awakens footage! And it's epic. We not only get to see Rey and Bb-8 in a few seconds of never-before-seen footage, we also get to see the film's epic lightsaber duel teased. Yes, Finn will be going up against Kylo Ren, using Luke Skywalker's original blue lightsaber. The fight is only hinted at, but it will surely be one of this sequel's most talked about moments. It's only a few seconds long, but well worth the wait.
Today, Instagram announced that - in addition to square posts - you can now share photos and videos in both portrait and landscape orientation on their platform. With this update, Instagram users can upload widescreen video which will be more cinematic than ever. This morning, @StarWars released an exclusive look at their upcoming film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, using Instagram's new landscape orientation. »

There's someone new in the galaxy, and we have a first look at this emerging presence. But who is the mystery woman on Shattered Empire's second issue cover? She looks a little bit like Han Solo's wife, Sana Solo, who was introduced in the main Star Wars comic book title, in a story that takes place prior to Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. It's not her. Star Wars: Shattered Empire is an upcoming Marvel comic series that canonically bridges the 30 year gap between Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And from what we've seen so far, there's going to be more than a few new faces to make things interesting. About the cover, the official Star Wars website had this to say.
"A picture is worth a thousand words. It's been said very often. But »
Common sense says that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to open big on December 18th, and Deadline reports that analysts are already predicting a global debut of an incredible $615 million! Jurassic World recently set the record with $524.4 million and reached $1 billion in 13 days, but the Return of the Jedi follow-up should have little trouble surpassing that, earning back its $200 million budget with ease. However, while Star Wars looks set to do well both domestically and overseas, it's set to be dealt a blow by the fact that China don't release Hollywood movies during December. Don't fret too much though, as the trade adds that it will happen eventually, so expect it to provide a boost when it does. One exhibition president tell them, "Less than four months and counting and nothing is broken so far. All the marketing by Disney is disciplined and methodical as »

As for the identity of the new character, it is possible that this is Shara Bey, the main protagonist of the series, and a Rebel along with her husband Kes. Back in August, writer Greg Rucka told the official site that:
“Shara flies, Kes is a ground-pounder, and a very experienced one. So, they have spent more time apart than together, and they’re in the Outer Rim world where the Imperial presence is felt, and they’re hoping that they can bring an end to this. »

How big is the biggest ship in the Imperial fleet? Big. The Executor, Darth Vader’s command ship in “The Empire Strikes Back” and “The Return of the Jedi,” is 19 kilometers long, according to the 2004 reference book “Inside the Worlds of Star Wars Trilogy.” That makes this massive Super Star Destroyer nearly as long as Manhattan, as Reddit user movielover278 pointed out with this comparison image: We wonder how Stormtroopers get quickly from one end of the ship to the other. Segways? I so, then Stormtroopers better be able to steer a Segway better than they aim a blaster. »

As previously revealed, Empire Magazine has Star Wars: The Force Awakens on the cover(s) and some new details for fans to gobble up. On top of a new image of Kylo Ren, they've revealed new details on him, Supreme Leader Snoke, and the First Order.
This morning's revelatiosn aren't as earth-shattering as some of the reveals we've had over the last couple weeks. But as mysterious as the new characters are in The Force Awakens, fans are eager for anything they can get their hands on. Today brings some tidbits about our villains (argulably the coolest people).
We already knew that Kylo Ren was something of a monniker, marking him as part of the Knights of Ren, but many still wondered if it was a Sith sect or if our new villains would have ties to the ancient Jedi enemy. Jj Abrams confirmed to Empire that:
"Kylo Ren is not a Sith. »

What if the Nazis who were spread out around the world, away from Germany, kept working after the end of World War II and the demise of Adolph Hitler? That was the direct inspiration for the First Order seen in this December's eagerly awaited sequel Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Empire Magazine has released a sneak peek from it's upcoming interview with director J.J. Abrams. And his focus is solely on the dark side of the force. He not only lifts the veil back on the new army of Stormtroopers and their leaders, he also offers more insight into Kylo Ren and his master.
In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Empire has now transformed into the First Order, and the Rebellion is now known as The Resistance. But the full state of the universe has not yet been unveiled. There is a lot more to learn about »
Faster than you can say "these aren't the Star Wars pictures you're looking for," the IP Man actor removed the images from social media - presumably after a slap on the wrist from the Empire Lucasfilm.

"I am the force and I fear nothing... Going to put this in my company's display room," Yen wrote before the message disappeared.
Of course, everything posted online finds itself immortalised in some form, so Yen's photo is still bouncing around the web.

Last week, Empire Magazine announced its upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens issue by revealing two different gate-fold covers. The first one featured new villains Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson). The second cover united incoming heroes Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). Now we get the first official still from inside the magazine, and while it shows a familiar character locked in an already iconic stance, it gives us a whole new background we haven't seen before.
The latest issue of Empire will be on newsstands this Thursday. It will feature an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens with new photos and interviews. And perhaps we'll learn more about the forest world seen in this latest sneak peek. Previous rumors indicate that a massive battle between the Resistance and The First Order will play out here, »

After a one issue interlude featuring a flashback tale starring Obi-Wan Kenobi, Star Wars #8 finds writer Jason Aaron returning to the ongoing storyline of Luke’s quest to learn more about becoming a Jedi, while diving deeper into the development that served as the chief narrative cliffhanger closing out the series’ first story arc: the reveal of Han’s apparent wife, Sana Solo. But more notably, Aaron is joined this issue by his new artistic collaborator and the book’s new regular penciler, Stuart Immonen (along with Immonen’s longtime inker, Wade Von Grawbadger), and it’s a strong debut for the artist.
While his work is less photo-realistic and painterly than that of previous artist John Cassaday, Immonen is a more traditional comic book artist, often eschewing strict realism for more representative »

Earlier this morning, Empire Magazine debuted the first of two covers for their October issue. It featured the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens villains, including Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson). Now, they are sharing their second gate-folded cover, and this time, they are bringing the new heroes together.
Included on this second cover is Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, who flies as part of an X-Wing squad. He belongs to a splinter cell of the Rebellion known as The Resistance. He is joined by Jakku desert scavenger Rey, played by Daisy Ridley. Rounding out the trio is Finn, played by John Boyega. He is an Awol Stormtrooper who is being ruthlessly hunted down by General Hux, Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma. It appears that he is holding one of the force's most precious artifacts and must get it back to its rightful owner. »
Are you ready for Star Wars: The Force Awakens? You better be, because we're about to get a barrage of images and footage in the final four months leading up to its release this December. And it all starts with the latest issue of Empire Magazine. They have two covers heading our way, the first of which they are sharing today. It features the long-awaited sequel's main lineup of new villains.
The dark side rises on the first of these two Empire covers. Though, as you probably already know, the vast evil army that stretches throughout the galaxy is no longer known as the Empire. After the fall of the second Death Star in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, the remaining troops spread throughout the universe regrouped to form the New Order. And while this vast dictatorship is mostly made up of Stormtroopers, someone still has to lead them. »
