Why Luke Skywalker Looks Like Crazy Hobo And Other Bits Of Star Wars News

star warsOkay, it feels like it’s been a while since there have been some big time potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Part of that is probably due to Disney’s new war on leaks, and I like to imagine it like how reporters wait in bars where political aides congregate, hoping the one or another has one drink too many and lets a juicy tidbit slip (at least that’s what TV has told me happens). I also imagine the House of Mouse would subsequently disappear this person. That said, they’re fighting an uphill battle, and a new report has a ton of potential spoilers for The Force Awakens.

Just a warning, if these are true, a big if, they’re the holy shit, ruin-your-day variety of spoilers, so maybe you just want to watch the trailer for The Force Awakens again and call it good.


The Wachowskis Have Been Filming Some Crazy Things For Sense8

jupiter-ascending-image-lana-wachowski-andy-wachowski-3-600x400-578x385Love them or hate them, the Wachowskis do not make small or boring films. Even flops like Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas are ambitious, visually unique, and push boundaries. Now that they’ve team up with J. Michael Straczynski and Netflix for the series Sense8, which should drop sometime later this year, they’re not planning to tone it done one iota, and they’re bringing some insane shit to the table.

In a recent interview with Io9 Andy and Lana Wachoswki revealed a little bit of what they have in store for your binge watching pleasure and lets just say it’s not all going to be what you expect. For instance, they have been filming live births, actual babies being born, to include, and you should also plan on Sense8 featuring “crazy psychic orgies.” Their words.


Star Wars Rebels Brings Back This Nefarious Villiain

We’ll have wait until December 18 to meet a bunch of new characters in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while there are a handful of familiar faces waiting for us there as well, the animated Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD has been holding it down on that front. They’ve already brought back Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi Wan Kenobi, Lando Calrissian, and others. And the hits just keep on coming, as Grand Moff Tarkin makes an appearance on the show, which you can check it out in this clip from the episode “Call to Action” below.


The First Star Wars Spinoff May Focus On This Actress, Not Tatiana Maslany

Felicity JonesHey, remember the other day when everyone was reporting that Tatiana Maslany, the uber-talented star of BBC America’s clone drama Orphan Black, was going to be the female lead in Gareth Edwards’ upcoming standalone Star Wars spinoff? Well that might not be as written in stone, or, you know, as correct, as people thought, and it’s now being reported that instead of Maslany, Felicity Jones won the role.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jones beat out Maslany and Kate and Rooney Mara, as well as a variety of other actresses who weren’t named in reports ahead of time, for the undisclosed part. She is reportedly officially in talks with Lucasfilm for the film and they suspect to hear more soon.


Tomorrowland Reveals New Stills And An Interactive Website

TomorrowlandDuring the Super Bowl this past weekend, Disney debuted a new TV spot/trailer thing for their mysterious upcoming adventure Tomorrowland, but that’s not all they’ve unveiled. It’s only a small crack, but they’re opening up the Mystery Box a wee bit, and a couple of new stills and a fancy new interactive website have crept out.

We don’t know much about Tomorrowland, but as we understand it, the story revolves round Casey (Britt Robertson), a young girl with a bright scientific mind. When her destiny becomes entangled with Frank (George Clooney), a former boy genius who is now bitter and jaded, they unearth secret details of a place called Tomorrowland that exists somewhere out in space and time, and their journey will change both of them, and the entire world, forever. There promises to be no shortage of action, adventure, and wonder going down before the credits roll.

When The Walking Dead embarks on its annual midseason hiatus, it always feels like it takes forever to get back. Granted, it’s usually around a two-month gap, which is substantial, but it also goes to show you how effective they are at endings, as they always leave you with a “holy shit” moment or a cliffhanger that leaves you dangling, wondering what the hell is going to happen now. AMC’s hit zombie drama returns for the rest of season 5 this weekend, and now you can watch the first two minutes of “What Happened and What’s Going On.” If you’re not caught up, there are spoilers.
