In case you haven’t been paying attention, there’s been a bit of a commotion over Amy Schumer’s photo spread in GQ, which features the comedian and actor cheekily posing with Star Wars characters.

This ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and ‘Star Wars’ Mashup Trailer Is Way Better Than It Should Be

by Britt Hayes July 17, 2015 @ 6:49 PM
Ah, mashup trailers — I have seen the greatest minds of my generation reduced to giggling lunatics at the mere sight of a pop culture mashup. The thing is, not many of them are actually good. T-shirts? Typically silly. Trailers? Eh. But every once in a while, a good one comes along, like this Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars mashup, which is way better than it has any right to be.

Guillermo del Toro is not making a Star Wars movie. At least not yet. But since he was at Comic-Con to promote his gothic haunted house movie Crimson Peak, he was asked about Star Wars. Because that’s how Comic-Con works. It turns out that the director of Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim does have a dream Star Wars movie buried somewhere in the back of his brain and it makes perfect sense. He wants to make a Jabba the Hutt origin story.

Watch the Full ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Panel From Comic-Con 2015

by Jacob Hall July 11, 2015 @ 1:45 PM
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).

There was no new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens at this year’s Star Wars Comic-Con panel. Nor was there any exclusive footage or scenes from the film. But there was a short behind-the-scenes video so full of magic and wonder that it’s hard to watch without getting a little misty-eyed. Excuse us, but it’s getting a little dusty in here.

Marvel’s Star Wars comics have been on a roll recently.
