If you didn’t think JJ Abrams was an Apple fan, then take a look at the Apple Store-looking design of the bridge of the USS Enterprise in his Star Trek films. In his famous “mystery box” Ted Talk, Abrams enthused “I love Apple computers. I’m obsessed. My MacBook challenges me: ‘What are you going to write that is worthy of me?’”
So it comes as no surprise that Abrams was glued to the Apple announcements yesterday morning as he prepped for another day of shooting on Star Wars Episode VII. He even tweeted out a photo of a note he wrote geeking out about the new Apple Watch which was announced, but take note of the background of the photo which teases a Star Wars set which might seem familiar to fans of the series. What does this new JJ Abrams photo tell us about Episode 7? Lets speculate after the jump.

What you’ve got to love about Twitter are the windows it opens. The way a single tweet can just set your imagination on fire with possibility. Monday night, that happened twice. First as a joke, and then as a photo.
The photo featured Star Wars Episode VII director J.J. Abrams with his two co-stars, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. It made you dream about the conversations being held between these three. Then, in the background, was someone else. Another famous director who, earlier that evening, made you wish if you could be one place in the world last night, it was with him. Edgar Wright tweeted that he too was hanging out with Abrams. Read More »
For the second time in as many weeks, Zack Snyder tweeted a photo linking his movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, to Star Wars. During Comic-Con, Snyder posted a photo of his Superman, Henry Cavill, dressed as a Sith. Then weekend, he did it again, tweeting a photo of Batman walking on sand dunes with R2-D2. It looks great, almost like Ben Affleck dressed as Batman was posing with the droid. But a second tweet pulled back the curtain to reveal the truth. Check out the Batman Star Wars info below.

I’m not really sure what this photo means, or if it’s just some playful pre-Comic Con fun, but either way I thought it was worth sharing. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (yup, that’s still the title) director Zack Snyder tweeted a photo of Man of Steel star Henry Cavill in a black hood holding a light saber with the hashtag #superjedi. We’re pretty sure this has nothing to do with a Star Wars crossover (two different studios and well, never gonna happen) but the backdrop of the portrait suggests Superman’s new black robe look has something to do with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is expected to appear at the Warner Bros Comic con panel later this week. See the full Super Jedi photo after the jump.

It’s not quite as exciting as our first look at Superman in Man of Steel or Batman and his Batmobile, but we now have an semi-official look at Henry Cavill as Clark Kent in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
While the actor has been caught in a few fan and paparazzi photos, a new image has just gone online from the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund. Cavill supports the charity, which helps the families of serving and retired Royal Marines, and posted a photo to help raise awareness. It just so happens, in this photo, he’s on the set of Zack Snyder‘s upcoming sequel and dressed in his work clothes as a Daily Planet reporter. Check out the Clark Kent Batman v Superman photo in full below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Thursday night in Hollywood, Magnolia Pictures hosted the premiere of the incredible documentary Life Itself. Directed by Steve James, the film tells the story of legendary film critic Roger Ebert. Along the way, it helps us think about not only Ebert’s legacy, but our own love of movies and ultimately our own lives. It’s a beautiful film that opens in theaters and on demand July 4.
Scrolling through Twitter, I noticed something at the Life Itself premiere that touched my heart. Someone at the premiere had left a seat open for Ebert, who passed away in April of 2013, just four months after James started filming. The simple gesture brought a tear to my eye because of just how much Ebert meant to myself and fellow film critics, fans and audiences all over the world. If it had that effect on me, we thought it might have a similar effect on you. Read More »
