It’s Star Wars Day! Some of us were hoping the day would bring a Star Wars: Episode VIII teaser trailer or some kind of new sneak peek for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. But instead, we’re getting a bunch of sales on Star Wars merchandise, and promotions of new goods on the way, like the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game coming to shelves this summer.
A new LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer has just arrived, and I will say that one thing making this particular LEGO Star Wars installment is the involvement Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver and even Harrison Ford as their respective characters from the movie. They got Harrison Ford to say the phrase “Wookiee cookies,” for crying out loud! It adds a certain level of authenticity and more fun that the previous LEGO Star Wars games were lacking. Watch below!

Director Joseph Kosinski did a decent enough job bringing to life the virtual world of TRON for the once long-awaited sequel TRON Legacy. However, Joseph Kosinski is no stranger to bringing video games to life in a very cinematic way having directed outstanding commercials for video games like Halo 3 and Gears of War. And now he’s helping to bring the video game Doom back to consoles properly, by way of a cool new live-action trailer for the latest franchise installment.

Back in February, we got word from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and Lucasfilm that LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens was coming to video game consoles this summer. The first trailer delivered an amusing spoof of the first teaser trailer for the movie, and now a new gameplay trailer shows how the movie has been spiced up a bit with some trademark LEGO goofiness, not to mention the cool game modes available to be played.

Tim Miller has been working in visual-effects for more than 20 years. The Deadpool director co-founded Blur Studio back in 1995, and years ago the company worked on a short film for the DC Universe Online game. Miller directed the short, which impressed the executives at 20th Century Fox enough to consider him for Deadpool.
Below, watch Batman, Superman, The Flash, and more in a 6-minute short.

If there’s one story even casual moviegoers have heard about this year’s Oscars, it’s — okay, it’s actually probably #OscarsSoWhite, the uncomfortable but desperately necessary conversation about race in the movie industry. But if there are two stories they’ve heard, the other is probably about Leonardo DiCaprio. Namely, the fact that he’s never won an Oscar and he would really, really, really like to. He ate raw bison liver for The Revenant, you guys. If that’s not enough to get a guy an Oscar, what is?
The good news for DiCaprio this year is that he’s already cleared the first hurdle — getting nominated, which he’s already done four times before — and the conventional wisdom is that 2016 will, finally, at long last, be the year he gets to take home one of those little gold men. We won’t know until February 28 how that theory actually pans out, but while we wait you can “help” “Leo” “win” the “Oscar” via a hilarious new video game, Leo’s Red Carpet Rampage. Read More »

I talked to Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy over the weekend at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens press junket, the full interview will hit the site later in the week. During my chat I learned that the company is still spending a lot of time looking, discussing and developing two of the most notorious left-over projects from the George Lucas era: the live-action Star Wars TV show Star Wars: Underworld and the Star Wars 1313 video game. Could either of these thought to have been abandoned projects find new light in the Disney era? Find out after the jump.

As you probably know by now, Star Wars: The Force Awakens takes us to new corners of a galaxy far far away. Most of the trailers and marketing focus on the first thirty minutes of the film (they haven’t spoiled much) which is set on Rey’s (Daisy Ridley) home desert planet of Jakku.
We know very little about this new planet, but the video game Star Wars Battlefront recently released a new downloadable level set during the Battle of Jakku, which took placer shortly after the events of the Battle of Endor in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, many years before the setting of the new film (explaining why there are wreckages of Star Destroyers laying in the sand dunes). Mike Fahley recorded a ten minute long virtual tour of Jakku, taking you through the world presented in the prequel video game DLC.
You can watch this video with no fear of movie spoilers as the Battle of Jakku seems to have little connection to Episode 7 aside from the giant relics laying in the sand at the start of the movie. I’m not a video gamer, so it was fun to watch someone explore this new planet in-game. Watch the Jakku video tour now embedded after the jump.
