‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ Trailer Beats ‘Avengers 2’ Record; Could Become Biggest of All-Time

by Mike Sampson December 2, 2014 @ 7:34 AM
Much was made about how the ‘Avengers 2' trailer broke online viewing records for 2014, shattering the previous record by ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’. But, records were made to be broken and it took just over a month for the ‘Avengers 2’ trailer to be surpassed, not surprisingly by the ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ trailer, which, if it keeps up at its current pace, could set the all-time record for trailer views.

'Star Wars: Episode 7' Star John Boyega's Awesome Response to "Black Stormtrooper" Racism

by Britt Hayes November 30, 2014 @ 1:58 PM
It has been nothing but ‘Star Wars’ mania since the trailer for ‘The Force Awakens’ debuted on Friday. We’ve seen fan-made versions of the trailer, people dissecting every frame of the footage, and general excitement for J.J. Abrams’ first installment in the new trilogy. But, as is expected, there’s also been some negativity out there. While most of us thought it was fantastic that the first face we saw in the trailer belonged to John Boyega, some people have been distasteful, criticizing the film for featuring a black Stormtrooper. That’s OK, though—Boyega isn’t letting those comments get him down, and he has an appropriately awesome response.

‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ Trailer Gets the George Lucas “Special Edition” Treatment

‘Star Wars’ fans have been very busy over the weekend. The trailer for ‘The Force Awakens’ was just released on Friday, and already we’ve seen fan versions hitting the internet, including a shot-for-shot recreation made entirely out of LEGOs, which is pretty impressive. But this one is a bit different, as it imagines what would happen if George Lucas gave the new ‘Star Wars’ movie the ol’ “Special Edition” treatment, adding in a bunch of extra and unnecessary CG characters. It’s so crowded!

‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ Trailer Gets Recreated Shot for Shot with LEGOs

The Force is strong with ‘Star Wars’ fans. The trailer for ‘The Force Awakens’ just debuted yesterday, but already fans have taken to the internet to scrutinize every detail and shot from the trailer, which is part of the excitement. One fan in particular decided to take things to the next level and recreate the entire 88-second trailer using only LEGOs, which is pretty impressive given how little time it’s been since the actual trailer made its way to the masses.

Mysterious ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ Trailer Narrator Has Been Revealed!

by Britt Hayes November 29, 2014 @ 12:22 PM
When the trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ was released yesterday, there was plenty to dissect and debate: who was the shadowy figure at the end of the trailer? Why was John Boyega in a Stormtrooper uniform? Why was Daisy Ridley speeding away? But one of the biggest points of contention was the voice over, which opens the trailer with “There has been an awakening … Do you feel it?” Fans and critics have been speculating over whether that voice is Andy Serkis, Max Von Sydow, or possibly Benedict Cumberbatch. And now we have an answer.

Mark Hamill Was Talking About 'Star Wars: Episode 7' Way Back in 1983

by Britt Hayes November 28, 2014 @ 7:39 PM
It’s become common practice these days for studios to plot out their franchises years in advance, but Marvel wasn’t the first studio to start that trend. George Lucas always had ideas in mind for more ‘Star Wars’ stories and liked to think ahead (or in the case of the prequels—think back). But it might surprise you to know that he had plans for Mark Hamill to have a role in something that sounds awfully similar to ‘The Force Awakens.’
