Thanks to the tireless work of some German agents, some early pages from a tie-in book to the upcoming Rogue One movie have been smuggled out, and they’re full of exciting things, including two new spaceship designs. Since many Bothans/Germans died to get us this information (I’m assuming), the least I can do is…
I’ve been a huge James Bond fan for as long as I remember, and I grew up at an age where I was able to naively enjoy all six Star Wars films before realizing The Truth. With that in mind, this James Bond-style opening title sequence for The Empire Strikes Back has awakened my nostalgia forces.
Last fall, we came across Matthew Callahan’s fantastic series of images, Galactic Warfighters, in which he inserts Star Wars figures into realistic combat photography. Now, a short film delves into his process.
Today is May 4, known in geekery circles as Star Wars Day (May the Fourth Be With You – get it?) so I figured what the hell, may as well do something Star Wars-related. This time I’ll spare you my obsessive droid-rantings and just get a little goofy, replacing some iconic Star Wars character’s faces with car-faces.
As far as I’m concerned the entire Star Wars series is basically an elaborate vehicle to showcase a whole bunch of robots. Rogue One is no exception, though the droids do seem to be a bit less prominent in this trailer than has been the case for past movies. Even so, I’m still happy to announce there’s at least one…
Many people consider themselves big Star Wars fans. But how many of those people not only have a ton of creativity, but the guts to put it out there for the world to see? This California resident is all that and then some.
I have to start off with an apology: I was wrong. Wrong in the worst possible way, too: I misidentified a tiny image of a droid in a Star Wars movie. I hope I don’t have to offer my resignation, but I do understand. I would like, however, a chance to fix things. I have a theory, you see. About a droid.
In support of Women’s History Month, today Hot Wheels revealed four new character cars based on female headliners from Marvel, DC, and Star Wars. But the star of today’s miniature auto show is definitely the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman character car.
Not so long ago, in our very own Milky Way galaxy, a plucky little droid named BB-8 roamed the hallowed halls of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, rubbing elbows with its robotic brethren. Happily, a photographer was on hand to capture this moment for posterity.
Of all the technological achievements of the Star Wars universe – faster-than-light space travel, antigravity, blue milk – the one that seems most ubiquitous is probably holography. Holographic projectors are all over the place. So why are they so crappy?
Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Adam Driver is no stranger to the military, having enlisted in the Marine Corps before finding great success as an actor. During a trip to Kuwait, Kylo Ren himself got a chance to don one of Explosive Ordnance Disposal’s iconic bomb suits in the desert heat and get a first hand look…
Artist Sam L. Rolls made this brilliant homage to both the Royal Air Force and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The rendering depicts Royal Air Force Chinook, Tornado, Spitfire, and Typhoon combat aircraft charging across the water as if they were X-Wings from The Force Awakens.
We’ve all seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens now, right? I mean, aside from our dipshitty friends who like to remind us, smugly, they never cared about Star Wars. The movie provided a pretty rich look back into the Star Wars universe, full of familiar places and objects and ideas. But there was one glaring omission:…
If you’re one of the small population of Americans currently in comas or encased in metal vaults, you may not have yet seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So, if you want to avoid spoilers, consider yourself warned. Though, to be fair, this particular spoiler is such a painfully geeky detail no one would possibly care.…
The Empire is apparently alive and well. Today, a pair of Storm Troopers and R2D2 accompanied White House spokesman Josh Earnest on stage at the White House Press Briefing Room.
Adam Driver, until recently best known for his work on the HBO hit series Girls, was a U.S. Marine before becoming an actor and eventually becoming The Force Awakens’ primary villain, the masked Kylo Ren. He briefly recounted this crazy journey on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last week.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will not be launching its holiday anti-drunk driving campaign on Christmas. No, our government has chosen a vastly more important occasion: Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening day.
The seventh Star Wars movie comes out this week (seventh!) and if you’re feeling a little behind, don’t worry: here’s how to catch up on the first few movies before the latest installment drops.
