This is the first Star Wars Day in ten years where we actually have a new Star Wars movie to look forward to. (Or more than that, if you want to argue that Revenge of the Sith wasn’t something to look forward to. Zing!) So far, the holiday hasn’t disappointed. We’ve seen a gorgeous new Vanity Fair cover and a behind-the-scenes video, and now we have a bunch of exciting Star Wars The Force Awakens images to share as well.

The new batch of photos features Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, and Lupita Nyong’o in mo-cap gear as Maz Kanata, along with the assorted creatures that populate the Star Wars galaxy. Click through to check ’em out, and to find out what else we’ve learned about the new Star Wars movie.

Adam Driver star wars

Here are new looks at The Force Awakens characters for Star Wars Day.

It may already be May the 4th where you are, which means it is either already Star Wars Day, or very shortly will be. While the fan holiday grew out of an obvious phrase (May the 4th be with you) it has a lot more potential this year with Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening in December. We saw the great Vanity Fair cover earlier today, featuring new characters Rey, Finn, and BB-8 along with Chewbacca and Han Solo, and it looks like the magazine will deliver even more very soon.

Now there’s a 45-second video which shows off the Adam Driver Force Awakens character, and gives us some info on the role played by Lupita Nyong’o. There are also new stormtrooper shots, another look at Rey, and some great shots of her speeder, alongside some behind-the-scenes footage of that cover shoot featuring Harrison FordRead More »

While We're Young

What happens when you hit your 40s and realize you still feel “like a child imitating an adult”? Well, if you’re Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts in While We’re Young, you befriend a pair of 25-year-olds (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried) and embark on wild adventures like ayahuasca ceremonies and hip-hop dance classes.

Then, not surprisingly, you discover that fulfillment doesn’t lie that way. And also that your arthritis will prevent you from keeping up with your cool young friends. Watch the trailer for Noah Baumbach‘s While We’re Young after the jump.

While We're Young

If Noah Baumbach‘s last film, Frances Ha, was a pitch-perfect examination of young adulthood, his next one, While We’re Young, looks like an equally astute look at middle adulthood. Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts star as a 40something married couple who befriend a 20something hipster couple (played by Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried). Watch the first While We’re Young trailer after the jump.

Hungry Hearts trailer

We all know that Adam Driver co-stars on Girls and that he’ll be in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (And that he was so great in a small role in Inside Llewyn Davis last year, too.) But there’s a Driver performance most of us haven’t had a chance to see yet, and it is one for which he and his co-star are winning accolades. In Hungry Hearts, Driver and Alba Rohrwacher play a young couple who “engage in a fateful struggle over the life of their newborn child.” If that sounds like some Roman Polanski sorta-atmosphere, that’s what we got out of the Hungry Hearts trailer, too. Check it out below.  Read More »
