15 Mean Mugging Movie Characters Who Can Ruin Your Day With One Look
At some point or another, you’ve been mean mugged before. Whether by some bitch who is intimidated by your hotness, by some asshole who wants to step outside and throw down because he saw you making a different kind of eye at his girlfriend or maybe by your wife because you took a nap instead of going to the grocery store, you’ve been victimized by someone who has attempted to punch you in the face with their eyes.
Today Is The Most Important Star Wars Anniversary You're Not Celebrating Yet
Today might be the most important day in Star Wars history that you're not celebrating yet. It was this day one year ago, around this time in the afternoon, when Disney made a blockbuster announcement-- they had acquired Lucasfilm, and they were making a new Star Wars movie. Nerds around the Internet rejoiced.
Star Wars Bloopers Entertain Fans Who Are Starving For News
What do we get to see? Sir Alec Guinness trying to “act” alongside a Wookie. Helmets falling off. Actors blowing lines. Standard stuff, though mistakes that still draw a smile, particularly because we have seen the finished film so many times, seeing alternate takes on famous interactions can only make us laugh.
Is A Star Wars: Episode VII Trailer Coming Next Week?
At the moment, it’s all speculation. Nothing Star Wars-related could happen on Oct. 30. At the very least, if you are a Star Wars fan, prepare for something on Oct. 30 … but don’t be too surprised if we end up with more of nothing.
Short Story Saturday: A Hero Never Blasts First
Did he, or did he not shoot Mergungus the bounty hunter first? That was the question on everybody’s lips and the reason that Harold Winzer sat in a courtroom today. Harold sat next to his lawyer, Jango McClean, and turned to look around at the crowded courtroom. He mostly saw aliens.
C-3PO Confirmed For Star Wars: Episode VII?
The original C-3PO appeared at the New York Comic Con recently to host a spotlight panel that he promised would NOT divulge any new Star Wars: Episode VII secrets. And he almost made it through the entire session without revealing what might be a spoiler. Or might not be. You have to be the judge.
Star Wars 7 May Announce Cast And Title Without Harrison Ford On Board
While appearing on Graham Norton’s BBC chat show Ford was less enthusiastic when asked about Star Wars: Episode VII. In fact he says he has “not quite made the choice” over whether or not he’ll agree to play Han Solo in the film.
Star Wars Episode VII Might Be Titled Rise Of The Jedi
The rumor is that these were the titles George Lucas had in mind for his next Star Wars movie before he turned the franchise over to Disney and JJ Abrams. While Disney and Abrams are under no obligation to use George’s titles now, it’s worth remembering that earlier this week we learned that Lucas has Episode VII director JJ Abrams ear
Star Wars, Marvel And The 5 Films Gravity Is Forcing To Step Up Their Game
No matter what happens, at least in the short term, movies set in or around outer space are going to be compared to Gravity. “Sure, it looks OK, but it’s not Gravity.” Unfair? Maybe. But it’s reality. So what are the five upcoming sci-fi projects that should be a little bit concerned by the success of Cuaron’s Gravity?
Short Story Saturday: Chewbaccaball
Used to spending his days wearings shorts and a tank top, the big German was struggling to adjust to life buried beneath a big pile of fur. They promised they'd let him take the head off between takes and JJ had hired an army of fan-wielding assistants to stand around him on breaks, but even for an athlete in peak condition this experience was a struggle.
David Oyelowo And Michael B. Jordan Now Rumored For Star Wars: Episode VII
David Oyelowo of Lee Daniel’s The Butler and Michael B. Jordan of Fruitvale Station have taken meetings about the film. Of course a meeting is far from a guarantee in casting, but Jordan is said to have met personally with Abrams, which is a bit more promising.
Star Wars: Episode VII Eyeing Saoirse Ronan For Mystery Role?
Virtually none of the rumors about Star Wars: Episode VII have been confirmed, but a few have been repeated so many times they're starting to feel more true, like buzz that the original cast will return or that a teenage girl will be among the main new characters. It's that second rumor that seems most interesting on the heels of a new rumor
Star Wars Spin-Off Movies Could Be Origin Stories
Honestly, this is kind of a disappointing direction for this idea to go, as history has proven that the terms "Star Wars" and "prequel" do not get along. I can't speak for everybody, but I don't want to watch a movie about when Han met Chewbacca - I want to see them in their pre-Rebel Alliance days when they were getting by as smugglers and setting records on the Kessel Run.
See The Secret Star Wars Easter Egg From Into Star Trek Into Darkness
See that hunk of metal in the circle there? Don't you dare call it a hunk of metal, or a stupid little short-circuit or any other kind of C-3PO insults. That's R2-D2, being sucked out of the U.S.S. Enterprise and into space in the middle of the Vengeance's attack in Star Trek Into Darkness. Yes, R2-D2 in Star Trek. It's a crazy world we live in
Star Wars Speculation: Is Cumberbatch A Good Fit, And Who Could He Play?
How are we supposed to react to the breaking rumor that J.J. Abrams has tapped his Star Trek Into Darkness villain, Benedict Cumberbatch, to join the still-formulating Star Wars: Episode VII? As rabid Sherlock fans, we should be jumping for joy. And yet, there’s a part of us that remains burned by Abrams’ “Mystery Box” nonsense.
