Will the 'Star Wars: Episode VII' teaser live up to the franchise's previous trailers?

19 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After months of on-set reports, wild rumors, tweeted photos and cryptic interviews, Disney and J.J. Abrams are releasing the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" on Friday. Moviegoers are sure to see some familiar faces and designs, plus new characters, creatures, ships and planets that will have fans speculating about what they're seeing in the same way they  did in for 1977's 'Star Wars" and 1999's "The Phantom Menace." Abrams is even more secretive than most Hollywood directors, and he loves to misdirect (remember the Khan confusion prior to the release "Star Trek Into Darkness"?), and the teaser will likely be a true tease that avoids any kind of narrative twists.  With that in mind, it's time to turn back the clock to re-visit the ever-evolving teasers released in advance of all six films. It's a list a billion of years in the making. »

The Relationship Between Highest-Grossing Films and Oscar Nominations

26 November 2014 10:07 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

It’s safe to assume that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is going to end the year as the highest-grossing film at the domestic box office with more than $331 million earned as of Nov. 23, but its Oscar prospects lie in below-the-line categories, such as visual effects and sound.

More often than not, the highest-grossing films tend to be neglected in the best picture category. Though The Dark Knight (2008), which was widely-acclaimed and was the highest-grossing film of the year, received eight nominations and won two (sound editing and supporting actor), it was snubbed by the Academy in the best picture category. The following year, the number of best picture nominees increased from five to 10 (and can now fall between those numbers). Since this increase though, the only highest-grossing films to land best picture nominations are 2009’s Avatar and 2010’s Toy Story 3. Neither of the films won. »

'Star Wars' Animated Series Set in New Trilogy Timeline Planned?

25 November 2014 12:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Disney Xd series Star Wars Rebels is halfway through Season 1, with the network having issued a renewal for Season 2 last month. This series is set between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, charting the formation of the nascent Rebel Alliance after the Jedi order was wiped out. With such a large gap in time between those two movies, many have been wondering how long Star Wars Rebels will be on the air. If a new report from /Film is to be believed, Disney and LucasFilm are planning 3 to 4 seasons of Star Wars Rebels, with a follow-up series to air in either 2017 or 2018.

This next Star Wars animated series is said to be set within the timeline of the sequel trilogy that kicks off next year with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Fans will have already seen »

25 November 2014 11:52 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

All eyes are currently on Star Wars: The Force Awakens as we eagerly await the release of the first trailer, but that doesn't mean other things aren't in motion for other aspects of the galaxy far, far away.

Mace Windu Getting His Own Star Wars Movie!?

18 November 2014 7:18 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Lucasfilm is currently developing a few highly anticipated Star Wars projects. Outside of J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens, Rian Johnson is developing Episodes VIII and IX, and directors Josh Trank (Chronicle) and Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) each working on standalone films that have yet to be revealed. Lucasfilm also has a third standalone film in the works, but as of right now no director has been hired to develop it yet. 

We’ve heard rumors and speculation of Yoda, Han Solo, and Boba Fett possibly getting their own movies. But now it looks like we can add Samuel L. Jackson’s Mace Windu to the list. Now before you brush this off as just a rumor, it comes from a very interesting source.

Director A.J. Edwards recently did a Reddit Ama to promote his upcoming young Abraham Lincoln film The Better Angels. This is the only movie that he has directed, »

Star Wars: Why Midicholrians Are Very Important

14 November 2014 9:51 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The What?:  It’s a column on Star Wars news and rumors and therefore contains Spoilers and Speculation. 

This Week: I know we hate Midichlorians, but here's why we can't forget them. 

[Ed. This page has been updated to correct the spelling of Dagobah]

Let’s talk about The Force, as I guess it’s important, and until The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions came out, I was a bit shaky on how the whole thing worked.

The Force, you see, is split into two distinct parts, The Cosmic Force, and the Living Force. The connection between the two is Midicholrians, and the expert on Midichlorians was Qui Gon Jinn. When you look at the story of Anakin Skywalker from this perspective, Qui Gon seems like a mediocre Jedi, unable to look past his dependence on the science of Midichlorians to see the danger of training the boy, something every Jedi in The Phantom Menace recognizes.

The “Living Force” is something »

What are the Hollywood Film Awardsc

14 November 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tonight the Hollywood Film Awards® will make their television debut on CBS, but what exactly is this show that has actually trademarked the tagline "Official Launch of the Award Season™" and declares they "launch the awards season" and that "over the past 17 years, prior honorees have gone on to garner many Oscar nominations and wins"c Well, it's just that, it's a so-called "awards" ceremony where the "winners" are more-or-less hand-picked by publicists. They aren't necessarily awards as much as they are curated attempts at headlines on the campaign trail. Carlos de Abreu is listed as the Founder and Executive Producer of the Hfa. His bio lists him as "an Internet pioneer" (whatever that means) and founder and CEO of the Hollywood Network® Inc. He was also a jet pilot in the Portuguese Air Force, but perhaps most importantly he has experience in brand marketing, which is pretty much all the Hollywood Film Awards are. »

41 cancelled Star Wars projects

13 November 2014 9:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Various Star Wars movies, games and TV shows have been canned over the years. The Force was not strong with these...

The Star Wars universe is a dangerous place. For example, ‘man walks into a bar’ gags in Mos Eisley tend to end with unwarranted threats, droid racism, limbs being chopped off, impromptu deaths or – worst of all – rigorous re-editing.

Until the recent Disney buy-out, the world created by George Lucas was just as treacherous for seemingly-exciting projects. Lucasfilm/LucasArts, for a time, became notorious for the number of cancellations under its belt, with films, TV shows and game ideas constantly being chucked out at various stages of their development.

But when did the term ‘countless’ ever stop us trying to count things? Never, that’s when. So we donned a pointy-hooded robe and scoured the desert wilderness of the internet to bring you what we hope is a complete »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

7 November 2014 9:33 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The What?:  It’s a column on Star Wars news and rumors and therefore contains Spoilers and Speculation. 

This Week: We get a new title and some new rumored information about where we find Luke Skywalker, seemingly the man waking the Force. 

The Phantom Menace. Attack of the Clones. Revenge of the Sith. A New Hope. The Empire Strikes Back. Return of the Jedi. The Force Awakens.

It’s been awhile since we had a new Star Wars Episode title to discuss, and I think I can remember each previous prequel reveal (sadly I have no cognizant memory of Empire or Jedi’s titles being revealed, I was way too into cartoons). “The Phantom Menace” was a big mystery that I don’t remember anyone liking and “Revenge of the Sith” seemed fitting to those of us that knew Jedi was originally Revenge of the Jedi until it was »

7 Things The Force Awakens Needs to Remember In Order Not to Disappoint Fans

6 November 2014 6:22 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Fans are getting very psyched up as the seventh Star Wars film comes closer and closer to its release date. But many of us get nervous thinking about the prequels and Jar Jar Binks. Can the new films avoid the mistakes of the prequels? Here are 7 things that the new Star Wars films need to remember.

Despite the recent tweet from Anthony Daniels where he says that the next Star Wars film will be the best one ever, even surpassing the series standard bearer Star Wars-Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back, it’s hard to get the taste of the Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones out of our collective mouths.  No doubt many people are currently thinking, ‘I hope these new films don’t end up anything like those pitiful prequels’. Here are 7 things that the new Disney-owned series needs to do—or not do—in order »

5 Big Things Star Wars: Episode VII's Title Just Told Us

6 November 2014 10:29 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In case you've been without internet, text messaging, and human contact for the past couple of hours, we just found out that Star Wars: Episode VII has an official title! Say goodbye to Episode VII, and say hello to Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Despite being a good punchline to the fact that the franchise is active for the first time since 2005's Revenge Of The Sith, this title is more than likely a plain sight clue as to what the latest installment in the Star Wars saga holds for us as an audience. Since there's no official explanation just yet, allow us to theorize just what The Force has indeed awoken. The Force Awakens Old Rivalries So thirty years after Return Of The Jedi, the universe is no longer under the Galactic Empire's boot.

'Star Wars: Episode VII' Has a Title: 'The Force Awakens'

6 November 2014 4:24 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Today, Disney quietly revealed that "Star Wars: Episode VII" has a title - and that it's completed principal photography. Next December, get ready for... "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens." Y'all ready for this?

To be honest, we're not super thrilled with this title. But we are thrilled that it has a title. "Star Wars" titles have, characteristically been pulpier in nature, giving a welcome, humorous throwback to the serialized Saturday matinees that informed them so heavily. They are usually about a person ("The Phantom Menace" alludes to the shadowy soon-to-be Emperor, "A New Hope" and "Return of the Jedi" are both about Luke, and "Revenge of the Sith" is, of course, about the Emperor) or a specific movement ("Attack of the Clones" refers to the Clone Wars while "The Empire Strikes Back" is about the Galactic Empire tightening the noose around the Rebels). "The Force Awakens" could refer to a character, »

Recap: 'Doctor Who' - Turns out 'Dark Water' makes a great hiding place

1 November 2014 9:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We’re in the home stretch now, folks. Only two episodes remain. After the elves or whatever showed up last week to save the Earth from a deadly solar flare, Clara Oswald’s lies to Danny Pink finally caught up to her. Will she be able to keep him from leaving her? Does she even want to? Everyone take a deep breath, because we’re headed into “Dark Water.” ******** Never before has Clara — or perhaps any companion — sounded so similar to the Doctor. Ms. Oswald is on the phone with Danny but she’s telling him to shut up, shut up, shut up, despite the fact that he can’t get a word in edgewise. We can deduce that Danny was on his way over to get the explanation he deserved. But as we all know, sometimes it’s easier to talk when you can’t see the other person’s face. »

Doctor Who series 8: Dark Water review

31 October 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A chilling episode of Doctor Who with major revelations. Here's our spoiler-filled take on Dark Water...

This review contains spoilers. Our spoiler-free review is here.

8.11 Dark Water

"The darkest day. The blackest hour. Chin up, shoulders back. Let's see what we're made of"

We distinctly remember getting to the end of The Waters Of Mars, one of the best episodes of David Tennant-era Doctor Who, and being taken aback at how cold the ending to that was. Remember it? It still creeps into our thoughts.

Dark Water, though? Yikes. It all but chilled our blood at one stage. With three words in particular - particularly haunting ones for anyone touched by bereavement in recent times - it tapped heavily into a deep human fear. It also instantly proved that words can sometimes be the greatest monster of all.

We'll be coming back to said moment, and those words, shortly. »

Star Wars Rebels owes as much to Joss Whedon as it does to George Lucas

29 October 2014 4:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Disneys animated Star Wars spin-off, set in the period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, has a lot in common with Whedons space western Firefly

George Lucas sold his billion-dollar baby to Disney exactly two years ago and it feels like theres been a Star Wars-related announcement almost every week since. From Jj Abrams reuniting the original cast and taking the helm of Episode VII, to cult directors Gareth Edwards and Rian Johnson signing up to expand the franchise in unexpected directions, Disney has been laying track for new projects at lightspeed, convinced that what the universe has been crying out for is more Star Wars, and lots of it.
