By the time Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters this December, it will have graced the cover of every major magazine in the world. Following cover stories in Vanity Fair and Entertainment Weekly, the highly anticipated sequel to the world’s most popular movie trilogy has landed on the cover of Empire. Heh. Empire.

Last night’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel has already gone down as one of the biggest triumphs in Comic-Con history. While there wasn’t a new trailer or new footage, there was something special in the air. The enthusiasm of the cast, old and new, was palpable. A behind-the-scenes featurette moved the audience to tears. Even grumpy ol’ Harrison Ford bothered to show up and he…actually smiled? A lot? And yes, there is video evidence of this phenomenon because the whole hour-long panel has made its way online (and it’s all nice and official, too).

SXSW Review: ‘Ex Machina’

Ex Machina is Alex Garland’s first film as a director but it’s very simpatico with his screenplays for movies like 28 Days Later, Sunshine, and Dredd. As a writer, Garland likes to work in compact universes — an abandoned city, a spaceship headed to the sun, a gang-infested high-rise — where characters are trapped together and pitted against one another. In Ex Machina’s story of a brilliant technologist who creates artificial intelligence, he’s found a man who fashions himself as something of an inquisitive god, and there’s a bit of that notion in Garland’s work as well — he builds little petrie dishes of life, testing mankind’s resolve under extreme stress to see whether we crack under the pressure. His findings are usually not promising.
