The Force Awakens Rating

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is officially PG-13. That’s the rating we all expected, but some fans worried Disney would try to make the film a completely kid-friendly picture — something we shouldn’t expect from J.J. Abrams or this franchise. Even the PG installments, like The Empire Strikes Back, would’ve been rated PG-13 today.

Abrams’ sequel is the second Star Wars film to be rated PG-13. After the jump, learn what the Force Awakens’ rating is and isn’t for.

Jimmy Kimmel Star Wars

If you’ve been watching Jimmy Kimmel Live over the past few years, or if you just pay attention whenever there’s a Star Wars-related clip that makes its way online, then you know that Harrison Ford has some serious beef with Chewbacca. The Wookiee seems to have done some nefarious activities with the wife of the man who plays his on-screen pal. Ford is so upset at Chewie that he has called him a “son of a bitch” when he tried to stop by his dressing room in 2011, and a “Wookiee sack of shit” when he popped up again in 2013.

But on last night’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens-themed episode, Ford finally settled the feud as Chewbacca was threatening to end his life on top of Jimmy Kimmel’s studio. Plus, there was plenty of other fun stuff, like a trivia contest between the cast and a seven-year old kid, a hologram from Carrie Fisher and a Star Wars edition of Lie Witness News. Read More »

the opening of blade runner 2

Blade Runner 2 is aiming to shoot this summer. Years ago the sequel didn’t sound like such a great idea, especially after some Alien fans felt burnt by Ridley Scott‘s return to the Alien universe, Prometheus. Once Scott stepped out of the director’s chair for Blade Runner 2, replaced by director Denis Villeneuve (Sicario), the sequel gained more interest from fans. Not all fans, of course, but nobody should write off seeing the third collaboration between Villeneuve and cinematographer Roger Deakins, especially after Sicario.

Still, Scott remains heavily involved in the project, and once again, he’s teasing the sequel’s opening sequence.

star wars magazine covers

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.
