Justin Lin rules. Star Trek 3 needs a talented director with a knack for bringing the energy to an ensemble. The combo fits.
It appears that Regal Cinemas just decided to fuck up my fanboy morning with anxiety. I was like, nine fucking theaters? One fucking chain? I was already planning fucking road trips and shit. But naw, they just dropped the news early. Multiple movie chains shall be carrying The Force Awakens’ first trailer. Thank fuck.
HBO is throwing some serious weight behind its upcoming sci-western, Westworld. It’s got itself a serious fucking cast, big name creatives behind the project (Johnny Nolan, Abrams), and an order for a full season. And if that ain’t enough, it’s got itself a weird viral marketing campaign. Which goes together with J.J. Abrams like peas and poorly-executed mystery box reveals.
Cliff Chiang produced a gorgeous poster back in the day. Before Star Wars Lived Again. Now said poster is being employed around STAR WARS FILMING CENTRAL HUB to remind motherfuckers to stop leaking EVERY GODDAMN THING.
Jar Jar Abrams and Baddie Robotz have revealed the first official video glimpse of the Millennium Falcon from Episode VII. And as a little bonus, there’s a cameo from the fuckin’ Batmobile. It’s the latest batch of glad-handing and mutual masturbation between Snyder, Abrams, and their mutual mega-movies.
Listen, I don’t want to hear it. I know this is non-news, inconsequential, whatever. But I’m just going to throw up my hands up and admit the truth: I can’t single-handedly reverse-engineer the media’s descent into madness. (A madness that some would argue began with the advent of the telegraph.) So yeah, whatever. A droid hand is revealed. Take it or don’t.
J.J. Abrams has dropped a sexy look at a mofuckin’ X-Wing (or a Z-95 Headhunter depending on whom you ask) in his latest video for the charity Force for Change,. I sort of assumed the son of a bitch would be back, but seeing it in its filthy glory definitely gets my knobs swelling.
It’s been confirmed! There are going to be some giant fucking star fields in Episode VII.
Shout out to J.J. Abrams for apparently developing a sense of humor about the recent leaks from the sets of Episode VII. In the past the dude would have moped into his room, pumped three or four loads into his Mystery Box, and passed out in a malaise. But perhaps he has found the Serenity Prayer, and taken to acceptance. ‘Cause while he has used Twitter to ask for the leaks to stop, he’s done it with a wink and a grin not typically found in the lad’s arsenal.
Okay let’s not be classless and focus on what society totally tells us is the most important part about this video okay okay okay. There’s an opportunity for us all to donate to Star Wars: Force For Change and receive a variety of rewards. But we’ll do it for humanity. Right? Right! OKAYFUCK. Now can I talk about how awesome it is that S7ar Wars is shooting on real sets? And using physical models like we see for its creatures? Am I allowed? FUCK. I’M EXCITED. See it for yourself.
