In this week’s edition of The Week in Star Wars, we look at a rather dubious rumour about Hayden Christensen returning to the Star Wars Universe, John Boyega, Domhnall Gleeson and Gwendoline Christie talk The Force Awakens and more…
Kicking things off as we usually do on The Week in Star Wars by looking at the latest from The Force Awakens. And this week John Boyega sat down to talk about his role as Finn and said that his story mirrors that of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo: “When I read the script I cried, and I’m not really a big crier. I’m more like a frog-in-the-throat kind of guy, who’ll try to hold it in and make sure I don’t let it all out. Finn is dope. His story is so epic. It’s a story that’s never been seen before, but it »

The closer we get to seeing actual new Star Wars movies on the big screen, the more we hear, and the more outlandish the rumors we hear get. One new report making the rounds is especially strange, and indicates that Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII might bring back another previous cast member, but not a cast member from the original trilogy, a cast member from the prequels. First, there are potential Spoilers beyond this point. Second, make sure to take this with a giant grain of salt. Maybe treat it as an interesting oddity rather than set-in-stone fact. That said, here we go… According to Making Star Wars, who have been all over the new Star Wars beat, Hayden Christensen, who plays Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, may be coming back for Episode »
Are the new Star Wars movies about to jump the shark? Ever since it was announced, there have been almost countless rumours about J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, including one very interesting claim that the franchise will utilize flashbacks for the first time with a scene featuring Darth Vader.
We haven’t heard anything about that in a while, as speculation has mostly centred on the iconic villain making an appearance in Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars: Rogue One. But, now a new report reveals that while that’s a very real possibility, it’s actually more likely that Vader will return in Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Episode VIII. Oh, and the real kicker here is that he’ll be played by a returning Hayden Christensen.

Clone troopers were first introduced in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones as highly-skilled combatants that followed any order without questioning its morality. But that has slowly changed over the years, most notably with the character of Captain Rex in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Now everyone’s favorite clone is set to make his debut in Star Wars Rebels, and alongside him are two more Republic veterans who also don’t exactly see eye-to-eye with the Empire.

In the Star Wars Rebels Season 1 finale, Fire Across the Galaxy, many fans were shocked to see Star Wars: The Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) make a surprise appearance. Ahsoka will be a regular fixture in Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels, along with a few fan-favorite clones as well, as you can see in a new preview for the upcoming episodes. Executive producer Dave Filoni talks at length about the grizzled soldiers that Ahsoka Tano sent the Ghost crew to look for and who will eventually come into conflict with Kanan -- the fugitive Jedi who watched so many of his friends die at the hands of clone troopers during Order 66.

Even though it’s fairly standard for many blockbusters to have a period of their theatrical release on IMAX screens, that’s a relatively recent development with Apollo 13 and Star Wars: Attack of the Clones being the first blockbusters to play on the gigantic screen in 2002. Since then the number of movies has gradually increased […]

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is currently in production, but it seems one actor, Mads Mikkelsen, took a break over the holiday weekend to attend Fan Expo Canada in Toronto. There he signed a poster for fan J.J. Good, where he revealed his character's name is "Galen" under the signature. The poster was also signed by Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones actor Zachariah Jensen, also signed the poster in the same format, with his autograph above his character's name, Kit Fisto. The big question that remains is, who is Galen?
Some fans have speculated already that Galen could be Galen Marek from the popular video game, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. The character was best known by his call sign, Starkiller, as an homage to Luke Skywalker's original name in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. If Mads Mikkelsen is in fact playing Galen Marek, »

Ultimatum #1-5 (2008-2009)
Written by Jeph Loeb
Pencils by David Finch
Inks by Danny Miki
Colors by Steve Firchow (1-3), Peter Steigerwald (3-5)
Published by Marvel Comics
This week, I am deciding to eat my vegetables before dessert and am reviewing the Ultimatum crossover series many weeks before I get to it in my History of the Ultimate Universe series. I am also combining my column with our mini event “Worst Comics Month”. This is because after I finished binge reading Ultimate Spider-Man Volume One and decided to read this “Ultimatum” series, which filled the gaps in some of the final issues, I (the neophyte comics fan) felt like I had truly experienced a bad comic with its ugly art, “shocking” plot reveals with little or no build-up, and jarring switches in tone from Hulk switching from dumb to smart to in between in the space of a panel to »

Struzan, who designed the original posters for The Phantom Menace, Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith (see below), recently revealed a poster for The Force Awakens at the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim this past weekend.
Since then, he’s been speaking to Movie Weekly about the highly anticipated sequel.
“I’ve never worked with J.J before and so we started working on it and he showed me like half the movie and it was just… a wonderful film and I know it’s going to be grand. I got to read the script and subsequently I’ve seen half of it and I can tell you and the fans this, »

Robots have been a staple on the big screen for many decades, showing up as far back as Fritz Lang’s 1927 classic Metropolis and as recently as Alex Garland’s 2015 film Ex Machina. With numerous depictions of robots have come numerous ideas of what they look like, what they’re capable of, whether they’re good or evil, and other such concerns.
Now vimeo user Mennomail has made a mashup of the various robotic representations on the big screen over the years. The video is set to both Fractals by Monea Music and Ich Will by Rammstein, and highlights both the similarities and differences in how robots have been depicted by various filmmakers. Mennomail also released a list of films from which scenes appear, which is as follows:
Films used (in alphabetical order)
1. Automata (2014)
2. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
3. Artificial Intelligence: AI (2001)
4. Alien (1979)
5. Aliens (1986)
6. Bicentennial Man (1999)
7. Big Hero 6 (2014)
8. Blade Runner »

We’ve been absolutely inundated with Star Wars news these past few days, so much so that one little nugget from D23 has slipped under our radar.
According to Comic Book, director J.J. Abrams has revealed that December’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens will run for 2 hours and 4 minutes – exactly the same length of time as Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back.
For comparison, here’s how the rest of the saga stacks up:

In this edition of The Week in Star Wars, we’re looking at the IMAX details for The Force Awakens, we’ve got details of Lego sets for 2016 and the new Steelbook Blu-rays as well as some video game and comic book news…
Kicking things off this week is some details about the IMAX screenings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We knew that J.J. Abrams had shot several moments of the movie specifically for IMAX, and reports are suggesting that it will be the escape from Jakku where we will see it best. The site goes on to report that “theaters that house a “true” eight story tall IMAX screen will present the film in actual 70Mm film reel; presenting the 70Mm shot scenes in its full screen glory. There will be two 70Mm prints running through the IMAX projector to have the film play in IMAX 3D »

With Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens igniting a new era of Star Wars films and merchandise later this year, it was inevitable that Fox Home Entertainment would make use of their remaining years holding the Star Wars home video rights to re-release the first six films on home video for the umpteenth style.
If you're going to release Star Wars on Blu-ray again then you had best give fans the original theatrical versions or offer up some incredible packaging. Fox is one for two as far as that's concerned.
On November 10, about five weeks before The Force Awakens arrives, you will be able to purchase new steelbook versions of all six existing Star Wars films. Each steelbook features an iconic character on its cover with five of the six films being represented by villains. Only Attack of the Clones with Yoda breaks the evil streak.

Yes, the Star Wars saga is getting yet another re-release, so cue any jokes about the cow milking now...but let's face it, they make money every time.
