This year’s Star Wars Celebration kicked off yesterday in the best possible way. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel was a huge success beyond the premiere of the new trailer, giving cast and crew, old and new, a moment in the spotlight. And there was BB-8, the totally practical droid who looks poised to sell a couple million toys this Christmas. However, one of the most interesting parts of the panel was the series of behind-the-scenes photos that were projected throughout the discussion, showing off various sets and costumes. Now, those photos have made their way online.

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.

When the X-Men return to the big-screen in May of 2016 they will face a new (and also super-old) nemesis: Apocalypse, an ancient Egyptian mutant hellbent on world domination. Onscreen, Apocalypse will be portrayed by Oscar Isaac, the rising star of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ and ‘A Most Violent Year,’ and, later in 2015, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ where he plays Poe Dameron. In the comics, Apocalypse typically looks sort of like you see him above, with elaborate blue armor, slate-colored face, and inhuman blue lips. This look, it’s pretty clear to me, would not translate to film (at least not in a way that wouldn’t evoke instantaneous laughter from viewers).
