A new teaser has debuted for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” featuring John Boyega’s character, Finn, wielding a blue lightsaber as he appears to face off with Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren in a continuation of the much-discussed scene from the first “Force Awakens” trailer, which introduced the concept of a crossguard lightsaber to a galaxy far, far away.
The video dropped on Instagram as a demonstration of the platform’s newly introduced landscape and portrait orientation options for photos and videos.
Driver’s enigmatic character has inspired plenty of speculation in the lead-up to the release of “Episode VII,” with reports revealing that his character is not a Sith in the vein of Darth Vader or Darth Maul — instead, Kylo Ren is a member of an order known as the Knights of Ren, and according to director J.J. Abrams, he built his unorthodox weapon from scratch.

Director: Tom Green
Gareth Edwards‘ 2010 film Monsters is seen by many as one of the most original and innovative movies of this century. Edwards’ managed to craft a thought-provoking sci-fi monster movie on a shoe-string budget. Rather than other films that dealt with invading aliens, this one was devoid of massive set pieces and the White House being blown up. Instead the film was much more focussed on the humans of the story, Andrew and Sam, as they made their way through the infected zone and embarked on a romance along the way.

Disney and Lucasfilm have unveiled a cast photo of "Star Wars: Rogue One," one of the spin-off films, which will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and focuses on resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. Check it out below. Producer Kathleen Kennedy previously spoke about the film, stating: "'Rogue One' takes place before the events of 'Star Wars: A New Hope' and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the 'Star Wars' universe. It goes into new territory, exploring the galactic struggle from a ground-war perspective while maintaining that essential 'Star Wars' feel that fans have come to know." "Star Wars: Rogue One" stars Riz Ahmed, Diego Luna, Felicity Jones, Jiang Wen, Donnie Yen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, and Alan Tudyk. It's set to hit theaters on December 16th, 2016. Photo: »
During the D23 Expo this weekend, Disney and LucasFilm revealed the first official cast photo for Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, which is currently in production at Pinewood Studios in London. The image gave us our first look at Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Jiang Wen and Donnie Yen, although these characters' identities were not yet revealed. Shortly after the image debuted, an interesting theory started sprouting up, which posits that Diego Luna may be playing a character already established in the Star Wars universe, Biggs Darklighter.
Twitter user Eleven Thirty Ate posted a side-by-side photo of Diego Luna in this new image, and Garrick Hagon as Biggs Darklighter from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, which suggests that they both have very similar hairstyles and mustaches. That is by no means a full confirmation, but the possibility is certainly intriguing, especially since no details about any of these characters have been released. »
