Star Wars: The Force Awakens chief of creature and droid effects Neal Scanlan poses with the creatures from the movie.

It’s Friday and we’re less than a week away from Star Wars: The Force Awakens hitting theaters nationwide. I thought we’d be in Star Wars overkill at this point, but even with a Force Awakens round-up each day on the site I was expecting to be bombarded with much more Force Awakens content the week before JJ Abrams’ Star Wars sequel hits theaters. In today’s edition of Force Awakens Bits, we take a look at the following:

  • Take a first look at Greg Grunberg‘s character: X-Wing pilot Snap Wexly
  • See Four new international Force Awakens character posters revealed
  • Are all Bad Robot office visitors are forced to sign a Star Wars NDA?
  • Russell Crowe saw 9 Minutes of The Force Awakens calls it “Spectacular”
  • Nearly an hour of John Williams Force Awakens score was discarded, modified or rerecorded
  • Alamo Draft House Cinema offers Star Wars-themed meals listed on a Millennium Falcon menu
  • How Rick Carter‘s art team effected The Force Awakens scriptwriting process
  • For preparation, Oscar Issac was given blueprints of every button that had ever been used on screen in an X-Wing
  • Why JJ Abrams And Lawrence Kasdan started from scratch when Michael Arndt left Force Awakens 
  • And the header photo shows Star Wars: The Force Awakens chief of creature and droid effects Neal Scanlan posing with the creatures from the film. So cool.

All this and more in today’s Force Awakens Bits. Hit the jump to hyperspace.

Zootopia - Yax the Yak

Like everyone else in the known universe, the citizens of Zootopia are putting together their “best of 2015” lists. But because they live in a city founded, run, and populated entirely by animals, their favorite movies don’t include titles like Star Wars: The Force Awakens or Ex Machina or Straight Outta Compton. Instead, they’re fans of Star Wars: The Furce AwakensStraight Otter Zootopia, and Ex Yakina.

It’s an obvious gag, but it’s pretty cute. And it’s a nice lighthearted change of pace from all the arguments currently breaking out over the recent SAG and Golden Globe nominations, and all the arguments that will soon be breaking out over the PGAs, the DGAs, the Oscars, and so on and so forth for the next three months. See the new Zootopia posters after the jump.  Read More »

X-Men Apocalypse Trailer

The first X-Men: Apocalypse trailer has already been confirmed to hit with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But ’tis the season for giving, and the folks at 20th Century Fox are feeling generous. So they’re dropping it almost a full week early. You look for it to go up online sometime tomorrow, and you can bet we’ll have it here the moment it drops.

And that’s not all. To get you pumped up, they’ve also unveiled a new X-Men: Apocalypse poster, which hints some of the destruction to come. See the X-Men: Apocalypse poster, and get X-Men: Apocalypse trailer details, after the jump.  Read More »

anomalisa poster

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Anomalisa is my favorite film of 2015 and one of the most unique and shattering experiences of my moviegoing life. Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson‘s stop-motion animated drama is a once-in-a-lifetime work of art. Cynical and beautiful and heartbreaking and hilarious, it is an enthralling, painfully human tour of the emotional spectrum. It’s the kind of movie that sinks its claws into you and leaves a mark. I was lucky enough to see Anomalisa at Fantastic Fest earlier this year and I found myself spending the rest of the festival thinking about, grappling with it, and trying to come to terms with what it had to say about its characters and their relationships. Few films pulverize your soul with such direct, expertly crafted force.

In other words, I couldn’t be happier to help premiere a new poster for the film, which casts a spotlight on David Thewlis‘ character Michael Stone. Check out the new Anomalisa poster after the jump.

Zoolander 2 international trailer

It’s a bit surprising to realize now that the first Zoolander actually wasn’t a huge hit when it came out back in 2001. It was the 55th highest domestic grosser of the year, behind such gems as Rat Race and The Animal. Like most good comedies, however, it eventually found an audience, and over the past decade and a half, it’s become so beloved that it’s now spawned a sequel.

Zoolander 2 puts Derek (Ben Stiller), already an old-timer on his way out in the first film, back into the fashion game. This time, he’s wrapped up in a larger investigation of a mysterious killer targeting the world’s most beautiful people (of which Justin Bieber is apparently one). Fortunately, he’s got plenty of help beside him, including his rival-turned-BFF Hansel (Owen Wilson) and an impossibly gorgeous Interpol agent (Penélope Cruz). Watch the Zoolander 2 international trailer after the jump.

UPDATE: There’s also a new Zoolander 2 poster, which you can see after the jump. Read More »

The Force Awakens Teaser Posters

While most of the marketing for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been solid so far, the one area that could use some improvement is the poster campaign. While the final one sheet and the recent character posters haven’t been terrible, they simply leave something to be desired, mainly the touch of artist Drew Struzan (who only crafted a D23 exclusive poster).

But perhaps we can improve things in the poster department with three new, retro The Force Awakens teaser posters. They’re plain and simple, but that’s the idea, because any real Star Wars fan will know exactly where the inspiration for these three posters comes from. Read More »

Game-of-Thrones-logo-700

HBO has dropped the first Game of Thrones Season 6 poster, and it confirms two things we’ve long suspected. One is that the show will return in April, as it usually does. No big surprise there. The other is that a certain someone will be back, in some way, shape, or form. Feast your eyes on the Game of Thrones Season 6 poster after the jump.  Read More »
