poe dameron backstory

Yesterday’s panel from Lucasfilm for Star Wars: The Force Awakens didn’t bring too much in the vein of revelations, though we did learn that Domhnall Gleeson’s character is named General Hux, and the actor revealed the First Order’s base is called The Starkiller Base, in honor of Luke Skywalker’s original character name in the first draft of Star Wars.

But there was one little tidbit from Oscar Isaac that intrigued us, and it seems to have gone largely unnoticed. When answering a fan’s question, Isaac suggested that his character Poe Dameron‘s backstory has direct ties to Star Wars: A New Hope. Find out about the Poe Dameron backstory after the jump!

Star Wars Comic Con

After waiting hours in line over the past two days (yes, we have to wait in line just like everyone else), Lucasfilm finally wowed Comic-Con with their panel in Hall H for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and it did not disappoint.

Although there weren’t any major announcements about forthcoming Star Wars Anthology projects or the next two episodes of the new Star Wars trilogy, fans were still left with the feeling that they could take on the whole Empire (or First Order) themselves. Why? Because a wonderful sizzle reel took us behind the scenes of the production of the film, and cast members both new and old came to hype up the start of a new era of Star Wars.

Below, find out everything we learned during the Star Wars Comic Con panel! Read More »

Game of Thrones - Kit Harington as Jon Snow

The heated debate over Jon Snow’s fate on Game of Thrones has gotten so intense, even the President of the United States wants to know what’s going on. Unlike most fans, though, he has the clout to demand answers from a person who might actually know the answer.

Read Nutter’s Jon Snow Obama comments after the jump — plus an explanation of the truth behind the season’s other big question mark, Stannis Baratheon. Spoilers follow. Read More »

Game of Thrones Season 5 - Carice van Houten as Melisandre

The casting on Game of Thrones is so perfect, it’s hard to imagine there was ever a time before Gwendoline Christie was Brienne, for example, or Pedro Pascal was Oberyn Martell. But of course there was. At one point, Christie, Pascal, and all the others were just actors competing against countless others for a role.

At the Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel on Friday, HBO unveiled an amazing audition reel showing us how actors like Christie, Pascal, Natalie Dormer, Liam Cunningham, Tom Wlaschiha, and more got their gigs. Watch the Game of Thrones audition reel after the jump.  Read More »
