Thursday brings the first trailer for Alan Taylor‘s Terminator Genisys, a film many are hoping launches a whole new era in the Terminator franchise. Arnold Schwarzenegger is back as the iconic T-800 but all the rest of the characters – Sarah Connor, John Connor, Kyle Reese etc. – have been recast in a movie that, rumor has it, takes place in a parallel time line to the original film series.
In advance of that trailer, Paramount has releases a 15-second teaser for the trailer. Usually, these suck, but this one not only provides our first actual look at footage from the July a release, but also some incredibly tantalizing shots for any fan of the Terminator series. Check out the first Terminator Genisys footage below. Read More »

J.J. Abrams, Lucasfilm and Disney didn’t have to give us a glimpse at Star Wars: The Force Awakens just yet. The movie is still over a year away; no one would have blamed them if we didn’t see something until six months out from release. That’s always been the schedule. But they were kind, and gave us seven scenes to dissect and discuss after almost two years of wild speculation. Now we know John Boyega’s character is a Stormtrooper, Oscar Isaac flies an X-Wing, there’s a new droid, and a bit more.
So yes, it was very kind and exciting to get a first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This is the Internet, though. We’re always looking toward the next thing. We’ve seen this teaser, but when will we see a second Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer? Well, we just happen to know for sure. Read More »
Lego, George Lucas and lens flairs were only the beginning. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer has only been out for three full days and already the parodies and reactions are impossible to keep up with. As you read this, someone is creating something new – and likely funny – about the trailer. Case in point, multiple new parodies have hit the web. There’s one poking fun at the fact it’s the first Disney film, two taking The Phantom Menace and retrofitting it to this style, a Spaceballs version as well as The Empire Strikes Back. Watch a bunch of new Force Awakens trailer parodies below. Read More »
There’s a lot to talk about in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer, but there’s only so much talking. Two short little phrases: “There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?” Followed by “The dark side…and the light.” With all the visuals that we can break down, there’ are only these two brief snippets of actual dialogue to consider. The first and most important question may be, who is speaking?
The identity of the narrator was a big topic of discussion Friday after the trailer hit. Speculation about the person’s identity ran from Max Von Sydow to Adam Driver, Andy Serkis and even Benedict Cumberbatch. The last one isn’t even in the movie, but it sounds a bit like him. Because he was at the center of J.J. Abrams’ last big mystery, it was a fun option to consider.
There will be no more considering. The identity of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer voice has been revealed.
Update: Andy Serkis has given a brief radio interview confirming that it is his voice in the trailer. Watch that below. Read More »

Friday morning, 30 theaters in North America began playing the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer in front of every single showing of every single movie on the schedule. Peter Sciretta, Russ Fischer and I all wanted to see the trailer for the first time on the big screen, as it was meant to be seen. We bought tickets to the absolute first showing in Los Angeles: a 7:00 a.m. showing at Disney’s flagship theater, the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. We were among the first on the West Coast to see the first footage from the first new live-action Star Wars movie in almost a decade.
After years of anticipation, speculation and excitement, what did we think of finally seeing the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer? Watch our Force Awakens trailer reaction video blog below and listen to us geek out over the first 88-second teaser trailer. Read More »
