Star Wars A New Hope Infographic

If you’re a hardcore Star Wars fan, there’s probably no way of knowing how many times you’ve seen the original film from 1977. However, we can guarantee that you’ve never seen the movie like this.

An illustrator and graphic novelist from Geneva, Switzerland took the time to adapt Star Wars: A New Hope into a single infographic that measures 123 meters long. It’s really impressive how he took the entire movie and created a scrolling presentation of the story. It includes dialogue, ships, settings and all the important details.

Star Wars The Force Awakens Sound Effects

When the original Star Wars arrived in theaters in 1977, it was an innovative piece of filmmaking for a number of reasons. Even though the film didn’t take home any of the big awards for Best Picture, Best Screenplay or Best Director, it did take a bunch of technical awards home for costume design, art direction, visual effects, editing, score and sound.

It’s the latter arean that a new video focuses on by isolating dozens of sound effects from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Obviously the movie borrows plenty of familiar sounds that originated in the first Star Wars nearly 40 years ago, but there are plenty of new ones to appreciate as well. And just like the original Star Wars, they were created by sound master Ben Burtt, who was given a special honorary Oscar for his work on the movie back in 1977.

star trek beyond trailer breakdown

The new trailer for Star Trek Beyond arrived late on Friday night, instantly washing the dreadful taste of the first trailer out of our mouths. Unlike the initial teaser, this footage looks like it comes from an actual Star Trek movie and you know what that means – there is a whole bunch of stuff to sift through if you go through the whole thing frame-by-frame and shot-by-shot.

Since we haven’t seen the movie, this post will contain all kinds of speculation and over-analysis, which means it could be loaded with potential spoilers. Just trek cautiously. And if you want additional reading, Peter Sciretta’s newly published set visit report sheds additional light on the film (and even directly answers and clarifies some of the observations below).

Independence Day Resurgence Trailer

With just over a month until the aliens come back to finish the job in Independence Day: Resurgence, a new extended trailer gives us our longest look at the blockbuster sequel yet. A bunch of new footage combined with what we’ve seen in the previous trailers gives us our best glimpse yet at the story, characters and pure destruction awaiting us this summer. However, I will say if you’re already on board with seeing this movie, don’t watch this trailer, because it shows a little too much.

Star Trek Axanar Lawsuit

Just before 2016 began, the producers of a crowdfunded Star Trek fan film called Axanar received some bad news in the form of a lawsuit from Paramount Pictures. At the core of all the legal mumbo jumbo, the lawsuit claimed ,”The Axanar Works infringe Plaintiffs’ works by using innumerable copyrighted elements of Star Trek, including its settings, characters, species, and themes.” It was a brutal blow to the fan film community, especially one as loyal as Trekkies.

Thankfully, some sense seems to have been talked into Paramount Pictures thanks to new franchise producer J.J. Abrams and Star Trek Beyond director Justin Lin, and the Star Trak Axanar lawsuit will be dropped very soon. Find out more after the jump. Read More »
