For all of the excitement and intrigue swirling around the villainous trifecta of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney and Lucasfilm have kept the vast majority of information relating to the trio behind closed doors thicker than the blast doors of the Death Star.

That doesn’t necessarily rule out the chance of budding fans unearthing new details, however, and with the Force Friday celebration now in full swing, those who have got their hands on the first wave of The Force Awakens memorabilia have posted some interesting findings – specifically in relation to a pair of replica helmets.

More News From The Web

Posted by Twitter user David Popineau, the pair of videos give us out first indication of what Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma – played by Adam Driver and Game of Thrones standout Gwendoline Christie – sound like in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. »

Will The Force really 'Awaken' for Disney at tonight's midnight sales events?

3 September 2015 5:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It has begun. Now is the moment when it goes from the hype of the hypothetical to the actual quantifiable event. Is "Star Wars" worth the $4 billion that Disney paid for it, and will "The Force Awakens" truly return the series to its place at the top of the pop culture pyramid? We won't really know those answers until December 18th, when the film arrives in theaters, but tonight at midnight, in time zone after time zone around the world, the first real test begins. That's right… Force Friday is here. There's no way I'm going anywhere near a store tonight. I was there in 1999 when they did this, and I think a small part of my innocence died watching grown men elbow children out of the way to buy Jar Jar Binks figures for a movie none of them had seen yet. This time, there's a nostalgia factor built »

Fall 2015 Movie Preview . Films I.m Dying to See

3 September 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

From big blockbusters to small independent films, here are the movies I.m dying to see this Fall. (Official synopsis provided by studios)

September 18 (Friday)

About Ray When a young woman (Elle Fanning) decides to transition from female to male, her announcement is met with both opposition and support from her mother (Naomi Watts) and her lesbian grandmother (Susan Sarandon).

Black Mass In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James "Whitey" Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power, and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history. -- (C) Warner Bros

Points of Articulation: Force Friday!

3 September 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

There’s been an awakening. Have you felt it? It’s as if millions of fanboys and girls all woke at the same time to empty their bank accounts buying new Star Wars merchandise.

Okay, maybe they all won’t be waking up at the same time due to time zones and all, but they will be depleting their bank accounts and/or racking up credit card debt all over the world at midnight for Force Friday. Already taking place in some overseas markets and online, loads of new Star Wars: The Force Awakens product—and some Star Wars product unrelated to Tfa—have been making their way into the hands of rabid collectors. All I can say is, I am very happy that I have narrowed my collecting to a select few companies, because this madness could very possibly bankrupt a guy.

In all seriousness, tonight marks the »

'Star Wars 7' Poster Assembles the First Order Villains

3 September 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The great unboxing of 2015 is finally over! It was 18 hours of straight up toy madness in anticipation of Force Friday, which kicks off across the country tonight, with a tidal wave of Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise set to drain your pocket book. Now that we've seen the toys, we can get back to all the movie marketing materials, starting with a very cool international poster. It features the First Order Troops, lead by the new trio of villains, Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma and General Hux.

Though, it must be noted, some are saying this is a fan-made poster. If that's the case, it's an exceptional job. It appears to give us a new look at Domhnall Gleeson's General Hux, one we haven't seen before. And one that is quite hard to fake. So, even if this has been cobbled together by some lonely basement dwelling future poster maker, »

Maslany, Rodriguez, Cooke Up For "Star Wars"

2 September 2015 6:48 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Three of TV's strongest young women are said to be the top contenders for the female lead role in Rian Johnson's "Star Wars: Episode VIII".

"Jane the Virgin" star Gina Rodriguez, "Orphan Black" Golden Globe nominee Tatiana Maslany, and "Bates Motel" scene stealer Olivia Cooke are all said to be in contention for the role.

All three will be among a group of women slated to do a chemistry-read with current star John Boyega before the end of the month. Johnson is still auditioning actresses though so several more will likely be in contention.

Maslany has an inside track, she was a finalist for the lead role in "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" though that part ultimately went to Felicity Jones.

Benicio del Toro is nearing a deal to play the villain in the film and production kicks off early next year. Disney and Lucasfilm will release the »

Dice Says Star Wars Battlefront Doesn’t Lift “A Single System” From Battlefield Series

1 September 2015 6:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dice’s heritage and expertise in the shooter genre may be felt within Star Wars Battlefront, but the studio has reaffirmed that its similarities with Battlefield end there.

Across its development, the Swedish dev has repeatedly stated that its high-profile take on a galaxy far, far away will feel and play like a different beast to its lucrative Battlefield franchise, and General Manager Patrick Bach drove that point home once more in a recent interview with Official PlayStation Magazine (via GamesRadar).

In fact, Bach even went so far as to say that Battlefront doesn’t borrow “a single system” from Dice’s flagship series, while trumpeting the shooter’s nostalgic factor.

I don’t think we have a single system in the game that is the same as in Battlefield. They are as far apart as any shooter would be to any other shooter. I think people will be surprised »

6 Oscar Season Narratives That Could Shape the Race This Year

31 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With summer doldrums in the rearview, In Contention has found a new home just in time for the annual Oscar season…and not a moment too soon. A number of fall film releases sit primed for reveals at the Venice, Telluride and Toronto film festivals over the next several weeks, kicking off the race to the 88th Academy Awards.

As ever, a number of the season’s hopefuls will live and die by the narratives conjured in their wake. Because as we know — and I can’t imagine this notion is all that controversial  — an Oscar race is as much about the stories told off-screen as it is about the stories told onscreen.

Here are a few such stories to keep an eye on as we wade into the deep end of the year. Don’t be surprised if a number of them are revisited at length in this space over the next six months. »

Check Out This 'Luke Skywalker' Star Wars: The Force Awakens Action Figure

30 August 2015 6:38 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We've seen quite a few of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys at this stage, but this is our first look at an action figure likeness of Luke Skywalker as he'll appear in the movie. As you can see he's sporting the same Jedi robes from that leaked image of Mark Hamill on set, and that gloveless robotic hand is on display. Plus, in his left hand he's holding what appears to be the lightsaber he was using in Return Of The Jedi. Whether this figure (along with the likes of Han Solo and Princess Leia) is officially unveiled on Force Friday remains to be seen, but we'll find out soon enough The Star Wars YouTube channel will host the live stream, which kicks off with the first unboxing in Sydney, Australia at 7:45 a.m. local time on Thursday, Sept. 3 (5:45 p.m. Edt on Wednesday, Sept. »

'Star Wars 7' Star Destroyer Gets a Menacing Name

29 August 2015 9:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director J.J. Abrams and his team have had a lot of fun slowly dolling out the names of each new character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, some of which, including John Boyega's Finn and Daisy Ridley's Rey, haven't even been fully revealed yet. But the humans, aliens and ball droids in this latest sequel aren't the only mysteries to be cracked. Each vehicle and domicile seen on screen seems to be getting a unique new name, too. We learned that Domhnall Gleeson's General Hux resides on a space station known as the Starkiller Base, a direct nod to Luke Skywalker's original last name in the first draft of George Lucas's Star Wars screenplay. Now, we get to learn the name of the foreboding new Star Destroyer.

In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, thirty years have passed since the events seen in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi »

8 great films cursed by bad endings: Did Kingsman really need that anal sex joke?

29 August 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As the ending to one of the best films ever says, "Nobody's perfect", and the same goes for cinema, as these 12 great movies with bad endings prove.

Spoiler avoiders, beware, however: there will be in-depth discussion of several twisty movies below, so if you're of a nervous moviegoing disposition, click away now.

1. Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)

What went right: There's a lot to love in Jedi: one of the best lightsaber battles in the series, the Jabba's palace break-out sequence, top notch SFX – the speeder bikes alone – and finally, victory for the good guys. And yes, Princess Leia's bikini, if you're into that sort of thing.

What went wrong: George Lucas. In fiddling with the ending again and again, it's hard to work out what is the "definitive" version is, but however it officially ends – goodbye old Darth Vader, hello young Darth Vader – the final minutes »

In Real World, 'Compton' Not (Anytime Soon) to Break Record as Highest-Grossing Domestic Hit Directed by Black Filmmaker

28 August 2015 4:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Straight Outta Compton' poster. 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.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens' New Star Destroyer Has A Terrifying Name

28 August 2015 4:10 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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. »

Everything we know about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, including trailers, cast, release date and spoilers

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 »
