One of the coolest features at this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration (in addition to the booth where you can get Jar Jar Binks’ face tattooed perfectly over your own face, okay I made that up) is the Star Wars: The Force Awakens costume and prop gallery, where you can peruse the clothes and gadgets used in the upcoming film by J.J. Abrams. Our man on the ground in Anaheim, Mike Sampson, has been snapping pictures left and right, and we’ve collected his best shots below. Make sure you follow ScreenCrush on Instagram, so you don’t miss any of our Star Wars pictures throughout the entire convention.

Not sick of Star Wars: The Force Awakens stuff yet? Good, cause the movie doesn’t even come out for another six months. There’s so much more teasing left to go! There’s probably like five more trailers, ten TV spots, a dozen exclusive clips, and hundreds (if not thousands) of images left to go. Once Avengers 2 gets out of the way, the rest of the year belongs to Star Wars. Like the Empire, it’s going to swarm over the entire galaxy and put entire planets in its thrall.
What a week to be Ryan Gosling! While his directorial debut, Lost River, is currently baffling audiences around the nation, he remains massively in-demand in front of cameras, where his good looks and enigmatic nature make him one of our best movie stars. A few days ago, we learned that Guillermo del Toro was after him to star in his take on Disney’s The Haunted Mansion. Now, we’ve learned that he’s in negotiations to join Blade Runner 2, where he’ll star alongside Harrison Ford.
The Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel just wrapped up at the Star Wars Celebration with the debut of the fantastic new teaser. (Here it is again, in case you missed it:)
The brand new Star Wars: Episode 7 trailer premiered this morning at Star Wars Celebration, as J.J. Abrams and the film’s cast showed off the footage to a packed audience of hardcore Star Wars fans. But, you don't have to be in Anaheim to get a new look at The Force Awakens: we've got the trailer for you right here, right now!
Although the destruction of the established Star Wars Expanded Universe brought out the inner-Sith rage of many longtime fans, there’s no denying that the biggest science fiction saga of all time has never felt healthier than it does right now. This is especially true in the pages of Marvel’s new Star Wars comics, which have been uniformly fantastic. And they’re about to get a little more fantastic because the great Lando Calrissian is getting his own series this summer.
It’s a big day for Star Wars fans. Today kicks off this year’s Star Wars Celebration, a giant, Lucasfilm-sanctioned Star Wars convention where Disney will finally unveil the first full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So get ready for a full day of videos and images and news from the con, starting with this mysterious new Force Awakens promo art that’s popping up on social media. They offer the clearest look yet at new Force Awakens baddie (and hilted-lightsaber wielder) Kylo Ren and at lead Stormtrooper Captain Phasma.
Because Star Wars Celebration is delivering our first look at the new Star Wars: Episode 7 trailer (among other surprise things), anticipation is high. We're here in Anaheim and last night when doors opened at 6pm, fans rushed to begin the long overnight campout on the concrete floors of the Anaheim Convention Center. It's not a fun way to spend a night, but these are Star Wars fans who are dedicated to the cause. The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams is in town to introduce the new trailer and once he got wind of the massive line, he did right by them and had pizza delivered for every single person on line.
Chris Evans has the distinction of playing two very different characters in the Marvel universe. He was both The Human Torch in Fantastic Four and its sequel Rise of the Silver Surfer, and now plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But he's not the only actor to double up Marvel roles. Ray Stevenson starred as The Punisher in Punisher: War Zone and later would play Volstagg in Thor and Thor: The Dark World. These are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which goes dark with The Punisher!
I had the great fortune to see Pixar’s Up for the first time at the Cannes Film Festival, when it premiered there in 2009. Cannes is basically the best place on Earth to see a movie; the main theater at the festival has perfect projection and sound and the film’s 3D was so good my palms started sweating during the climactic setpiece because it felt like I was thousands of feet in the air. I’m not going back to Cannes this year (DAMMIT) but those in attendance will get a chance to have a similar experience when Pixar’s newest movie, Inside Out, makes its world premiere at the festival over a month before it opens in theaters.
