First and foremost, we here at /Film are passionate fans of movies. That’s why we go out of our way to make sure we don’t post any spoilers without fair warning so as not to ruin the movie-going experience for anyone else. This is especially true when it comes to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which can be difficult when there are endless spoilers out there.
But there are some fans who seek out spoilers like a bloodhound, anxious to know every last detail about the film they’ll eventually see in theaters. And one fan has taken that philosophy to the extreme by compiling all The Force Awakens rumors and putting them together into a plot synopsis for the entire movie.
Keep in mind that since this was put together with rumors (some very credible) that along with the inevitable inaccuracies, there are also plenty of details in here that are 100% correct. So if you choose to read on, beware of some potential massive spoilers. Read below at your own risk! Read More »

Meanwhile, Lupita Nyong’o plays a motion-capture character named Maz Kanata, an alien pirate.
And now director J.J. Abrams is pulling back the curtain on the production of Episode VII ever so slightly. The filmmaker recently opened about Star Wars original trilogy references as well as filling in the 30-year gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Thankfully, it sounds like they kept their heads on straight to avoid fan service winks and nods. Read More »

Star Wars Episode VII officially finished filming over the weekend. We know this both because of the note J.J. Abrams gave to crew members, and the photos and videos that appeared online from what looked to be a massive after-party. Among the attendees at the party was everyone’s favorite astromech droid, R2-D2.
R2 was the first official cast member revealed from the film so it’s kind of fitting he’s also the first we get to see in all his Episode VII glory. Now, don’t expect some massive spoiler or surprise here. It’s just R2-D2, but this is definitely an R2-D2 that’s seen another few decades of action. Check out the Star Wars 7 R2D2 below. Read More »

We’ve known for a long time that director JJ Abrams and cinematographer Daniel Mindel are shooting Star Wars Episode VII on 35mm film. Over the summer we learned something else: at least some portion of the film was shot on IMAX cameras. The photo that confirmed that data (above) showed an IMAX film camera, not one of the new digital systems used by Michael Bay on Transformers: Age of Extinction. So we know that the production is sticking with film.
Now we have a bit more info on the particulars of the Star Wars Episode VII IMAX shoot. As it turns out, there might be only one big IMAX sequence. Read More »
