Harrison Ford Jj Abrams Carrie Fisher Star Wars Mark Hamill Daisy Ridley Maisie Richardson-Sellers

Star Wars fans got what they’d been waiting for on Thursday, as the second trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit.

The trailer opens showing a crashed Star Destroyer and a glimpse of Darth Vader's melted, black mask. Mark Hamill, who is back as Luke Skywalker can also be heard in a voiceover saying 'The force is strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. My sister has it. You have that power too.’

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer


30 years ago, the Rebel Alliance struck their killing blow against the Galactic Empire. The Emperor has been defeated, and his right hand man, Darth Vader, is dead. The second Death Star has been destroyed, and celebration reigned across the galaxy. But it was not the victory we once thought it was. With Imperial soldiers scattered across the galaxy, the Storm Troopers have rallied behind a new leader, a new Dark Lord of the Sith. But old heroes will rise once again, and come out of retirement, to once again wage war across the stars. The Force has awakened once more.

Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back Trailer


The Rebel Alliance struck a terrific blow to the Galactic Empire with the destruction of the Death Star. But now, with the Emperor's right hand man, Darth Vader, on the hunt for Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), the Alliance are going to have more difficulty fighting them off. Han Solo (Harrison Ford) is reluctantly still fighting alongside the Alliance, although his smuggling past and loner demeanour still rub wrongly with Leia Organa (Carry Fisher), who finds him to be nothing more than a stuck up, scruffy-looking Nerf herder. But their petty squabbling will have to be put aside when the Empire comes in search of Luke.

Star Wars: A New Hope Trailer


The galaxy is in turmoil. A Rebel Alliance is rising up against the villainous Galactic Empire but they are still marginalised and easily defeated. The Empire has a secret weapon, something that will ensure their continued hold on the galaxy: The Death Star. The giant space station has the ability to destroy an entire planet, although the Rebel Alliance have successfully stolen the secret plans for it. When Princess Leia Organa of Alderan (Carry Fisher) is captured on her way to deliver the plans to the Alliance, she is forced to send them inside a droid to the closest planet - Tatooine. There, a young moisture farmer, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), who dreams of something greater for himself, is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, and save the galaxy along the way.

May The Fourth Be With You! Or April 10th For The Full 'Star Wars' HD Collection


Star Wars Disney Harrison Ford Carrie Fisher Ewan McGregor Samuel L Jackson

'Star Wars' is a phenomenon. The oddball 1977 original movie (later deemed to be "Part 4") was the first true blockbuster, changing the way movies are merchandised and reigniting the steadily dying science fiction genre. It turned the space opera into a crowd-pleasing licence to print money, and we all love it for that. On the other hand, the best way to send any self-respecting geek into a fit of frothing rage is even allude to the prequel trilogy without discussing how you would have made it better yourself.

The thing is, the original trilogy is still held in such high regard, that the series is still a viable investment; not only are we getting an entirely new trilogy beginning at the end of 2015, but a remastered collection of the entire saga so far is set to be released digitally online on 10th April, 2015. As if you needed something to get you in the mood.

Star Wars: The Digital Collection Trailer


A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. The majestic order of honourable, strong Jedi, do all they can to keep the peace in a galaxy slowly tearing itself apart through trade disputes and separatist uprisings. All the while, they are becoming aware of the steady growth of an ancient group of darker, hate filler Jedi known as The Sith, are returning. In amongst their troubles, a young boy is discovered; a boy who could be more powerful than any Jedi that has ever lived. If a legendary prophecy can be believed, he is the one who will destroy the Sith and bring balance back to the Force - the energy which binds all life together.

Mark Hamill: 'Star Wars The Force Awakens' Is About "The New Generation Of Characters"


Mark Hamill Harrison Ford Carrie Fisher

Mark Hamill, who will reprise his iconic role as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has said he was not surprised his character wasn’t included in the movie’s first teaser trailer. Released last month, the just under 90 second teaser didn’t show Hamill as Skywalker as well as fellow original cast members Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher.

Mark HamillMark Hamill doesn't mind that he was left out of the new Star Wars trailer

"This is about the new generation of characters; I think that's the most important thing," Hamill told Yahoo! Movies . ”It's the opening act of a whole new approach to the storytelling.”

Maps To The Stars Review


Excellent

As it explores Hollywood's inbred underbelly, this film becomes increasingly deranged and also rather dark and creepy, but it's so fiercely entertaining that it's impossible to look away from the screen. With razor-sharp performances, a brutally witty script by Bruce Wagner and snaky direction from David Cronenberg, the film is perhaps too knowing as it explores a group of fiercely ambitious people who will stop at nothing to get what they want.

Things kick off as Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) arrives in Los Angeles and is collected by chauffeur Jerome (Robert Pattinson), who is also of course an aspiring screenwriter and actor. Focussed and determined, Agatha visits the ruins of a Hollywood Hills home before using a friendship with Carrie Fisher to get a job as an assistant to acclaimed actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore). Facing middle age, Havana is desperate for a comeback role in a remake of the movie that made her mother a star. Meanwhile, 13-year-old teen pin-up Benjie (Evan Bird) has completed rehab and is ready to act again, encouraged by his manager mother (Olivia Williams) and self-help guru dad (John Cusack), who are unnerved when they hear that Agatha is back in town. Clearly everyone has a secret that can jeopardise their career paths. And they're connected in ways no one wants to acknowledge.

The knotted mess of the plot is carefully unpicked over the course of the film, which only makes everything that much more intense and nasty. While it's blackly funny, the movie's overall tone is extremely grim, as these wealthy stars are crippled by emptiness and desperation. They're also willing to do just about anything to get ahead, from celebrating someone else's misfortune to blatantly lying about their pasts.

Maps To The Stars Trailer


Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore) is an actress struggling with her insecurities and desperate to reprise her late mother Clarice's star role in the remake of the latter's 60s film. Constantly haunted by her mother's image and feeling like a less attractive version of her, she seeks comfort from her psychotherapist Dr Stafford Weiss (John Cusack). Weiss is struggling in his own life, with his wife managing his child star son's comeback acting career after a stint in rehab - and he's only 13-years-old. His other child, daughter Agatha (Mia Wasikowska), has been discharged from a mental hospital unbeknownst to them, and lands a job as a PA for none other than Havana. Stafford starts to become suspicious when Havana talks of her unnamed PA having a scarred face from a fire and warns his wife and son that their daughter may have returned. Meanwhile, Agatha becomes close to a limo driver named Jerome who has his own Hollywood dreams.

JJ Abrams Reacts To 'Star Wars VII' Millennium Falcon Leak...But Not How You’d Expect


Jj Abrams Carrie Fisher Mark Hamill Harrison Ford

With a movie as large and far-reaching as the new Star Wars, Episode VII, it was always going to be impossible to stop certain juicy details from leaking to the eager fanbase. Director Jj Abrams is notoriously secretive but even he has had to give in after a sneaky production team member shared several shots of the Millennium Falcon spaceship being built in some kind of hangar.

The director tweeted a photo of what appears to be the hologram chess board that appeared in the original Star Wars trilogy bearing a note that read "I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie. - JJ."

Basically, Abrams is making fun of all the people speculating over whether the Falcon will be featured in the movie by saying 'yes fools, of course one of the most famous spaceships of all time is going to be in my movie.'

Millennium Falcon Photos From 'Star Wars 7' Set Leak: Could It Be?


Jj Abrams Carrie Fisher Lupita Nyong'o Harrison Ford Mark Hamill Gwendoline Christie Peter Mayhew Domhnall Gleeson Adam Driver

We have been given our first look at the brand new Millennium Falcon that is being built for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, thanks to an alleged photo leak TMZ has published. The new shots, which are purported to feature full-size space vehicles from the sci-fi franchise, have strongly hinted that Han Solo's iconic spaceship and others will be included in Jj Abrams upcoming reboot.

If the photos are real, they are evidence that Abrams' team has decided to create full-size versions of the vehicles that George Lucas' movies only made in miniature model sizes. It will also indicate that Episode VII will use minimal CGI effects in favour of high spec props and spacecraft models. Eagle-eyed observers also spotted what looks like an X-Wing starfighter amongst the other unknown constructions.

The photos were evidently taken in some kind of cavernous hangar which fans are speculating could be England's Pinewood Studios, where much of the movie's filming will take place. Vast sets are shown being built out of wood and covered with ladders and scaffolding as Abrams' vision slowly takes form.

Is 'Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back' Truly The Greatest Film Of All Time?


George Lucas Carrie Fisher Mark Hamill Harrison Ford

It may come as a bit of a surprise to hear that Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back has been voted Empire Magazine's greatest movie of all time. The new poll, which included 250,000 film fans, saw the second Star Wars movie, or the fifth, depending on whether you take chronology or date into account, beat The Godfather, The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction. Traditionally, all three films tend to rank higher than The Empire Strikes Back, in movie polls taken by film fans.

The Empire Strikes Back Greatest Film Is The Empire Strikes Back truly the greatest movie of all time?

Empire Magazine’s list is compiled of 301 films, which also includes two other Star Wars movies, Return of the Jedi and Revenge of the Sith. This surely bodes well for the franchise, which is currently working on Star Wars Episode VII, which is due for release in 2015.

Carrie Fisher On 'Star Wars: Episode VII': "They Hired Me Minus 35 Pounds"


Carrie Fisher Star Wars Jj Abrams

Tom Hanks, Matthew McConaughey and Christian Bale have all shed pounds in a dangerously small amount of time in the name of art. But you rarely hear of women doing the same thing for a role, probably because they’d be accused of having bulimia or anorexia.

Carrie FisherCarrie Fisher and her mother Debbie spoke about Star Wars on the red carpet 

When Carrie Fisher played Princes Leia back in the 70s and 80s she became a sex symbol because of a certain golden slave bikini. And, despite reprising her role over four decades later, it has been revealed that she was cast on the proviso that she shed 35 pounds.

Disney has confirmed that storylines running through the "expanded universe" Star Wars novels will not inform J.J Abrams' forthcoming movie Star Wars Episode VII.

If we don’t find out some serious Star Wars facts stat we think we may burst!

You Luke Beautiful: Rodarte’s NYFW Star Wars Inspired Dresses


New York Fashion Week George Lucas Harrison Ford Mark Hamill Carrie Fisher Cate Blanchett

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...Oh OK, not too long ago, on a catwalk in New York City.Rodarte fashion designer duo, Kate and Laura Mulleavy presented their new collection on Tuesday at New York Fashion, and the grand finale pieces were absolutely out of this world! The Mulleavy sisters founded their fashion line in 2005 and Rodarte has since gone from strength to strength, with celebrity clients including Cate Blanchett and Keira Knightley; however, their Fall 2014 collection is by far their most inventive and show-stopping collection yet.

Rodarte New York Fashion Week The Rodarte sisters were fans of the Star Wars franchise as children

Closing the show, crowds were taken aback to see five fabulous and floaty finale gowns. That’s not so unusual, right? Well, each of the five romantic and silky gowns were printed with images from George Lucas’ super franchise, Star Wars! The stunning gowns wouldn’t have looked out of place on a red carpet or at a stylish do, had each of them not been sporting an image from the iconic sci-fi film. Printed on the sweeping skirts were movie stills of Luke Skywalker, chatterbox C-3PO, Jedi master Yoda and lovable droid, R2-D2. Somehow, the images don’t detract at all from the elegance of the gowns and the colour palette seems perfectly picked in order to compliment the stills. Incidentally, the show came on the same day that casting was confirmed as complete on Star Wars Episode VII, with the intention to shoot in London's Pinewood studios from May till September.
