Star Wars Rebels Already Has A Follow Up In The Works And It Takes Place Here

star-wars-rebels-trailerDisney and Lucasfilm are in the process of expanding the Star Wars universe in ways it has never grown before. They’ve got Star War Rebels on the air, episodic movies like Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the works, standalone films scheduled, and comics, movies, games, and novels all adding to the official canon. If that sounds like a lot, it is, but if it sounds like enough, it is most certainly not. They’re taking the Marvel, lets-do-as-much-as-we-possibly-can approach, and they have another animated series in development.

Rebels has turned out to be a lot of fun (I’m still way, way behind because I don’t get Disney XD at home), and was renewed for a second season right as season one kicked off earlier this fall. But according to a report over at Slashfilm, the high Disney muckety mucks already know how the series is going to end, and have a new one lined up to fill the void. This isn’t super imminent, as they still reportedly plan to do “about” three or four seasons of Rebels, but it definitely shows how they’re approaching this new age of Star Wars, and that they have an eye on the future.

SpaceX Plans To Use These Drones For Reusable Rocket Landings

landing pad droneIf you’ve been following Elon Musk and SpaceX, you know that one of the ways the company drastically decreases the cost of transporting cargo (and eventually humans) into space is by the implementation of reusable rockets, such as the Grasshopper and the Falcon 9, the rocket that will eventually launch the Dragon capsule. EMusk recently announced a new addition to this plan: autonomous landing pads that serve as movable launch and recovery platforms for those rockets.

This Walking Dead Mid-Season Finale Clip Sends Father Gabriel A Sign

We’ve got one more episode of The Walking Dead left in 2014 before the hit zombie series takes and extended holiday break (those lucky bastards). As usual in this situation, the show is building up towards something big, which is probably going to look very much like a violent clash between two groups of human survivors. That’s all I’ll say on that matter in case you’re not caught up, but you probably guessed that already. Looking forward to the final episode before the mid-season hiatus, AMC has released a new clip from the upcoming “Coda,” as well as some looks back at the penultimate episode, “Crossed.”

There are going to be some spoilers beyond this point, especially when we get to the behind-the-scenes videos. You’ve been warned.

This Predestination Trailer Doesn’t Prepare You For What You Find

January is often looked at as a time of the year that’s a desolate wasteland full of terrible movies, and it certainly is to a degree. There are going to be a lot of bad movies in the first month of 2015. But it’s also a place where movies get dumped because no one can figure out how to market them, and this time around one of those films is the Speirig Brothers’ Predestination, which is back with this new trailer.

The Jurassic World Trailer Is Here And It Rules

Remember yesterday when we were all counting down the minutes until the first Jurassic World trailer that was scheduled to debut during football on Thanksgiving Day? It’s okay to admit that you were vaguely trying to schedule dinner and cooking times around the appearance, you weren’t the only one. But now that’s a moot point as the trailer has shown up online for you to check out. This isn’t even a bootleg or a leak, which you kind of expect from the film at this point given their security troubles, this is an official Universal Studios release. Check it out for yourself below:

This Amazing Back To The Future Screening Will Make You Insanely Jealous

We’ve written about Secret Cinema’s special public screenings of Back to the Future a couple of times this year, about how they’re supposed to be amazing, and how they’re bringing the show stateside in 2015. They sounded cool, but we all like to go see screenings of our favorite film, so our reaction was along the lines of, “Oh, that could be fun, but we’re not super excited about it.” Yeah, that was until we saw this video of the event, and holy crap, this is way more than just watching the movie outside, this is an entire immersive experience, and it look super badass.

This is a collection of footage from the Back to the Future screenings held at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London last summer from July through August, and it looks incredible. You don’t see anything here that we haven’t already read about, but witnessing it in action, even in a YouTube video, gives you a sense of the true scope and scale of this event. You start to understand exactly how these screenings helped the movie jump back into the box office top ten almost 30 years after its original theatrical release. An event like this is worth ponying up for.
