With Star Wars: The Force Awakens now in theaters, the filmmakers and stars of the movie are starting to open up about the secrets they’ve had to keep for the past couple of years.

But since we want to avoid any major spoilers as best we can for those who haven’t seen the movie yet, we’ll leave that information after the jump. Read More »
Even people who aren’t Star Wars fans know the iconic fanfare that begins every single movie. The same can be said for the iconic Imperial March used to signify the arrival of the Empire and Darth Vader. And now thanks to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, his house band The Roots, and the primary cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we have an awesome a capella version of those iconic themes that’s presented like the opening credits of The Brady Bunch, but a hell of a lot cooler.

The X-Men: Apocalypse trailer hit the web today, and based on the 200 comments left on that post, it’s fair to say the response has been mixed thus far.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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 »

Thrills, chills, and a whole lot of overwrought dialogue follow. Watch the first Mojave trailer after the jump. Read More »
