Artist Skottie Young created this wonderfully adorable trilogy of interlocking comic book cover art for Marvel's new Star Wars comic based on the classic movies. These comics will be set shortly after the destruction of the first Death Star in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. The three comics are being coordinated with Lucasfilm to make sure that they line up with both the original films and whatever is coming in Episode VII, VIII, IX and whatever else Lucasfilm in planning. The three comics they are developing are:
Princess Leia #1, kicking off a five-issue miniseries in March, 2015 by writer Mark Waid and artist Terry Dodson.
Darth Vader #1, following close behind in February, 2015 by Kieron Gillen with art by Salvador Larroca.
Young talked about the project in a statement he gave to MTV:

Speaking before his audition, Walton admits that he has "always had a bit of a self-belief problem" and adds: "This is my life, I only get one. This is what I want to do - if I can't do it then [I feel like I'm] failing at life."
In front of the rest of the Boys category, who are watching on, she gets up and goes over to Walton to tell him: "You can do so much better than that. You have to look at us and connect with it. »
I imagine this is what it feels like to be held hostage…
It's happened to all of us at least once. Your phone vibrates… then vibrates… then vibrates again. You're trapped. There is no escape – you need to come to terms with the fact that you're stuck in a group text. It's an emotionally exhausting journey, and we've all experienced this progression...
1. "Wow my phone is buzzing like crazy – how did I get so popular all of a sudden? This is so exciting!"
2. "Wait a second…What is this? Who are all these bozos?"
3. "Hold up… Is This A Group Text?!"
4. "It's going to be fine. I'm a champ. It's okay. I can totally get through this on my own."
5. "Am I really friends with the person that started this group text? I need to reevaluate my life."

On Monday (September 22) morning, The CW invited a handful of reporters to break up the madness of premiere week with a screening of the sixth season premiere of "The Vampire Diaries," which will air on October 2. I'm not going to tell you much about the premiere both because it's a [relatively] long way off and because many of the salient plot points are embargoed. But mostly, I'm not quite ready to give more than a quick gut opinion. I felt like Season 5 was frequently over-extended and repetitive, but the finale also set in motion a number of shifts which, if utilized correctly, could clear a lot of the clutter from Mystic Falls. In turn, the premiere is mostly resetting the pieces. How's Elena handling the events of the finale? Poorly! How's Jeremy handling the events of the finale? Poorly! How're Stefan, Caroline, Matt and The Witch Twins handling the events of the finale? »

The Canadian wilderness is no place to get lost. That becomes apparent in "Backcountry," a tense thriller premiering at the Toronto Film Festival on September 8. Based on a true story, the movie revolves around Alex (Jeff Roop) and Jenn (Missy Peregrym), a young couple who become lost while camping. To make matters worse, they stumble into bear territory. As the tension mounts and their already fragile relationship begins to crack even more under the pressure, the two must somehow keep their wits about them in order to survive.
Back in November, 2013, Peregrym, Roop and writer/director Adam MacDonald took a much-needed break from shooting "Backcountry" before heading to Vancouver to complete production. The trio gathered in Toronto's Liberty Village to discuss the great outdoors, character friction and creating "the shower scene of bear attacks."

(Cbr) Warning: This report contains harsh profanity. Widely known for his “Saturday TV Funhouse” skits on "SNL," Robert Smigel brought his most famous creation, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, to Comic-Con International to promote his upcoming live-action series on Adult Swim. Along for the ride were his co-star Jack McBrayer ("30 Rock") and executive producer Michael Koman ("Nathan For You"). McBrayer and Triumph previously teamed up in 2012 for a "Conan" sketch in which they visited Chicago’s famously abusive hot dog stand the Weiners Circle. In the new comedy, created by Smigel, McBrayer will play Jack, the child star of a "Lassie"-like television series who’s brought drawn into a world of decadence by his co-star (Triumph). Now, 15 years later, Jack seemingly has life together, only for Triumph to come back into his life. Before the panel began, the stars and producer sat down with reporters for a brief discussion. »

On Wednesday, actor LeVar Burton launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $1 million to bring back Reading Rainbow. On Thursday, the $1 million was raised. And by Friday, nearly $3 million had been donated — and there are still 32 days left to contribute to the campaign. Talk about a fundraising success.
The Reading Rainbow TV show, hosted by Star Trek: The Next Generation star Burton, launched in 1983 as a program encouraging kids to read and continued its run on PBS until 2006. A few years later, Burton got together with business partner Mark Wolfe to create a Reading Rainbow tablet app, which went on to »

At one point during “Chapter 22,” Adam tries to impress upon Remy the gravity of his situation: “This is my life you’re fucking with.” Remy, impassive: “You and I are just pawns, Mr. Galloway.”In House of Cards, everyone is just a pawn for the all-mighty Underwoods. This is great for snappy chess-themed one-liners, but it makes for pretty dull television (Netflix-ision?) because it means most characters aren’t characters at all. No one but Frank and Claire get to really have passion, vision, desires, hopes, weaknesses, histories; non-Underwoods exist only to demonstrate, through their failures, that Claire and Frank will always succeed. You all know how I feel about Adam. So it’s a pretty major statement when I, renowned dismisser of all things Adam, say that I feel badly for this guy, who wanted nothing but to live out his stealth-photo-taking, loft-having dreams in peace. But he has »

Sam Berns, a charismatic and inspirational Massachusetts boy with progeria, a rare genetic condition that accelerates the aging process, died Friday after complications from the condition, the Progeria Research Foundation announced. "To me, he was a star," Sheila Nevins, president of HBO Documentary Films, told People on Sunday morning, calling news of Sam's death "devastating." Last October, the cable network aired its film Life According to Sam, and a determined Sam personally attended its premiere showing in New York City - but watched his story unfold onscreen all by himself in an adjoining room. Afterward, a silent Sam walked into »

The Good Wife, Season 5, Episode 11, “Goliath and David”
Written by Luke Schelhaas
Directed by Brooke Kennedy
Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on CBS
The Good Wife returns from its short winter break this week with an episode that is erratic at best. “Goliath and David” has a mediocre case-of-the-week, an annoying plotline involving Marilyn’s baby, sub-par Lockhart Gardner drama, and hints that the Kalinda/Damian story is going to get as bad as we’d worried. Basically, it is an episode that shows that even at its best, The Good Wife makes the occasional misstep.
The case-of-the-week is the sort of storyline this show almost has to turn out a few times a season, due to its increased episode order. It’s a pulled from the headlines situation that feels selected more so audiences will laugh with recognition than because it’s a particularly interesting or pressing legal issue. »
