The more movie studios tighten their grip on the details of their big movies, the more secrets will slip through their fingers. And you can generally blame the toy companies. Seriously. Those guys accidentally spoil more than anyone else in the business. However, this case is a little unique. There are no finished toys for ‘Star Wars: Episode 7,’ but there are prototypes for figures that will be available next year. And someone has obtained a photo of said prototypes and put it online. Put on your scrutiny hats, folks. It’s time to over-analyze some toy sculpts.

Let’s go back. Back in time before Paul Feig swooped in to direct an all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot which we’re actually excited about. Back in time to when the long-gestating ‘Ghostbusters 3’ was still a possibility, a sequel that most people didn’t really want. Back here in the land that time forgot, original ‘Ghostbusters’ director and producer Ivan Reitman was planning to helm the long-delayed third installment in the franchise, and according to some recently uncovered e-mails from Sony, we now know what that sequel would have been called—and who might have starred in it.

Yep, the holiday box office looked just a little rough this weekend.

‘The Interview’ has quickly become a huge point of interest for the American public, with the controversy surrounding it and the Sony hacker attack driving up even more interest in the film.
