The Force Awakens Legacy Featurette

We’ve gotten just about all the footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens that we can handle, and with just about 12 days left until the film is unleashed in theaters everywhere, I’d be fine if there wasn’t another minute from the film posted. After all, we’ve already seen a total of six minutes from the film, and that barely shows anything beyond the first half.

The good news is that we have something to hold you over for the next dozen days, and you don’t even have to see any new footage that hasn’t been seen in the previous trailers. The Force Awakens Legacy featurette goes behind the scenes of the production with footage of scenes being shot and talking heads from all the right people. Watch! Read More »

Steven Spielberg Will Not Recast Indiana Jones


Steven Spielberg is probably going to direct another Indiana Jones film. There has been talk of rebooting the franchise — rumors that have always been quickly shot down — but Spielberg and Harrison Ford seem intent on making a fifth installment in the series. One day someone will probably fill Ford’s shoes in the lead. A reboot is bound to happen. But don’t expect the role to be recast anytime soon.

After the jump, Spielberg explains why there’s only one Indiana Jones.

new star wars: the force awakens photos

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in just over two weeks. It premieres in 12 days. Director J.J. Abrams has reached picture lock, the point where editing is finished and only the final visual effects and sound touch-ups remain. It is now a real movie that actually exists and will be in theaters soon, not a batch of trailers or a gallery of on-set photographs or a figment of our collective imagination. It’s almost here, people.

So you may want to tread cautiously around Rolling Stone’s deep dive into the film, which takes the reader behind the scenes of the film’s post-production process and squeezes a few sweet, juicy details into the public eye. However, the article is also an incredible look at a hugely anticipated movie from the point-of-view of a huge fan who knows how to ask the right questions. You can check out more details, including a batch of new photos from the set, after the jump.
