Welcome to 2015. Hopefully it’s better than 2014, which was not bad, but also not great. But maybe the pop culture this year won’t be any different from last year. How much can we really change in a year? Let’s start by asking a different question:
How far have we actually come in a decade? Let’s look back at 2005.

In 2005, the biggest movie of the year was Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. This year, the biggest movie of the year will be...Star Wars: The Force Awakens, probably. And another of 2005’s biggest movies of the year was Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith. In 2015, we’ll watch Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie again in By the Sea (which Jolie directed).
But mostly, looking back, the biggest movies of 2005 are a blueprint for 2016: In 2005, we »

Remember when Lucasfilm planned to re-release the Star Wars prequel trilogy in 3D? The company dropped Episode I: The Phantom Menace back into theaters in February of 2012, but thanks to disappointing box office numbers and the fact that Disney purchased the company and set plans for a new trilogy in motion, Lucasfilm cancelled the remaining two re-releases and put all its efforts into developing Episode VII and beyond. A 3D version of Attack of the Clones was shown at a special tribute to the work of Visual Effects Supervisor Dennis Muren in November of last year, but a 3D version of Revenge of the Sith has never been screened in public before.
That's about to change, as StarWars.com announced that the first public screening for the final prequel film will debut at this year's Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California. With The Force Awakens on the horizon, this year's »

"Once more, the Sith will rule the galaxy." You might remember a few years ago, back before Star Wars: The Force Awakens was even a reality, there was a plan to release the prequel trilogy, converted into 3D, into theaters over three consecutive years. However, The Phantom Menace was the only one that made it to the big screen, and plans to release the other two episodes were scrapped once Disney bought Lucasfilm and started putting together their own Star Wars plans. But if you're attending Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim in April, you'll have a chance to see the whole prequel trilogy in 3D, and the rest of the saga too. StarWars.com has just revealed that Revenge of the Sith will be screened in 3D for the first time at Star Wars Celebration, which runs from April 16th-19th (you can still get tickets here).

"Once more, the Sith will rule the galaxy." So said Darth Sidious upon the turn of Anakin Skywalker to the dark side, and he was right (for awhile...). Only this time, they'll do it in 3D. Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, in all its Order 66ing glory, will make its 3D debut at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, coming April 16-19, 2015. Fans will be the first to see this long-awaited, big-screen 3D conversion by Lucasfilm, completed with care for the look of the original movie while taking advantage of 3D's stunning possibilities.
Revenge of the Sith was originally released in 2005, and brought the Star Wars saga full circle with an action-packed, visually-stunning, emotional story. The film sees the final machinations of Darth Sidious' evil plot come to pass - and features lots (and lots) of lightsaber duels, dogfights, and Clone Wars battles. With all this, Revenge of the Sith »
