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.
You can roll your eyes all you want at yet another ridiculous example of Star Wars merchandising, but secretly you’re probably going to place an order for these simple wiper blade upgrades because you know you can’t resist having a lightsaber wooshing back and forth across your car’s rear window.
We’re at peak pre-new Star Wars hype right now, and I’m not immune. I bought my 5-year old a can of Spaghettios because it had a picture of R2-D2 on it, and I was glad to do it. What’s happening to me? I’m okay with it, but there are no cars in the movies, which is an issue for me. Luckily, there’s landspeeders, which…
When the first Star Wars movie came out in 1977, Toyota had a Celica painted and sticker’d up with Darth Vader and friends (technically enemies, actually.) The car was given away, the creators got mired in legal trouble, and now that we’re riding a fresh wave of Star Wars PR somebody wants this thing back.
It’s common knowledge that Death Stars are wildly expensive weapons of mass destruction. What we didn’t know—until now—is that destroying two of them would bankrupt the Galactic Empire. Apparently Luke and his small band of Rebels didn’t crunch the numbers, either.
