By this time next month, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will have graced the cover of just about every major entertainment publication on the planet. Any editor worth his or her salary would have arranged to have the most anticipated movie of 2015 appear in the pages of their magazine. It’s the Circle of Blockbuster Hype: The Force Awakens has the potential to be one of the biggest movies of all time, so everyone keeps on talking about it… and since everyone is talking about it, it has the potential to be one of the biggest movies of all time. Insert signing lions here – Disney does own Star Wars, after all.
Anyway, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled four new Star Wars: The Force Awakens covers, each of them showing off a separate character. Depending on your personal taste (or which one randomly decides to show up in your mailbox, if you’re a subscriber), you can pick up a copy featuring Harrison Ford as Han Solo, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, and C-3PO and R2-D2 as themselves. Well, technically those last two are Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker. Check out the covers for yourself after the jump.

You’ve got to hand it to J.K. Rowling – she’s certainly not resting on her laurels. In the years since she wrapped up her seven-novel Harry Potter series, she’s dabbled in new genres, even writing under a pseudonym (which ultimately became the worst-kept secret in the world) for a few books. And now that she’s returning to her Wizarding World, a universe that helped the define popular culture for a generation, she seems intent on exploring as many mediums as possible.
With the actual Harry Potter sequel, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, heading to the London stage, Rowling is making her screenwriting debut with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a film set in the same universe as The Boy Who Lived, just 80 or so years earlier. And now our first look at the film, and its hero, played by Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne, has arrived.
UPDATE: Several more images from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have been released, and you can find them all after the jump.

We won’t get another Avatar movie until 2017 — and that’s assuming James Cameron actually meets his deadline this time instead of blowing past it yet again — but in the meantime there are other ways to get to Pandora. Like Toruk – The First Flight, an Avatar-themed Cirque du Soleil show that begins touring this fall.
The production was announced some time ago, but today we have a better look thanks to some colorful behind-the-scenes photos. Take a peek at the Avatar Cirque du Soleil show after the jump. Read More »
Halloween may be over, but there’s still plenty of horror for you to check out in theaters. Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension is now in theaters, and you should probably see The Final Girls on VOD as well. And for those who don’t mind more Gothic romance than true scares, Crimson Peak is a visual feast from director Guillermo del Toro with some spirits that really stand out.
The reason the Crimson Peak ghosts are so unnerving is the combination of visual effects and practical make-up effects that were used to create them. If you want to see how these ghosts looked on set, check out some new photos that del Toro recently revealed online. Be warned that they are somewhat NSFW because a couple of them show old, wrinkly, decaying, prosthetic breasts. Read More »
