Star Wars AMC Theatres

With the arrival of Star Wars: The Force Awakens just a few months away, there will be plenty more Star Wars hype coming down the road. One thing that fans have been hoping for more than anything is the return of the original Star Wars trilogy to theaters to lead up to the release of The Force Awakens, and it looks like their wish may come true.

The movie theater chain AMC Theatres recently posted a Twitter update saying that fans would have the opportunity to see all six Star Wars movies in theaters again before The Force Awakens arrives, complete with a link that presumably went to a page where you could learn more about the marathon.

Update: Netflix and AMC have both responded to refute this rumor. More info below.

Star Wars Episode VIII shortlist

How do you feel about seeing Tatiana Maslany from Orphan Black in a Star Wars movie? She’s been rumored for a role in the past (in Rogue One, which ultimately went to Felicity Jones), and now she’s one of three names on a shortlist of young women who are reportedly in contention for a primary role in Star Wars Episode VIII.

Note that potential very vague spoilers for the new films follow along with the full Star Wars Episode VIII shortlist is below.

Update: This list may only feature two people now, as Olivia Cooke has reportedly been cast in Ready Player One. (Story on that forthcoming.)

Indiana Jones Visual Symmetry

Earlier this week we highlighted a video called Star Wars Poetry, which took a look at the visual symmetry between the original Star Wars trilogy and the more recent prequel trilogy. When comparing the two sets of films, some striking similarities in shot composition arose, showing that George Lucas wasn’t completely off his rocker for the prequels.

Now the same creator of that video, Pablo Fernandez, has done the same thing with another trademark George Lucas creation: Indiana Jones. This time the video compares Indiana Jones visual symmetry from the original trilogy of adventure films to the frequently panned, outcast sequel Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, all directed by Steven Spielberg.
