Second trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

A new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story made waves yesterday as it previewed new footage and gave fans of the Star Wars universe a closer look at the rebels front and center in the film. Rogue One takes place sometime before/during the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, and from what I know (which isn’t much, I’ll admit) the movie is about the rebels who stole the Death Star plans that would eventually lead to Luke blowing it up the first time. Is it safe to assume we’ll see all those Bothans that died getting the plans? Rogue One has already been tagged as the Saving Private Ryan of the Star Wars universe, and rumors are that reshoots took place to make the movie less heavy-handed and dark, so here’s hoping we’ll get a dirty, dramatic experience.

If you can’t get enough Rogue One news or just love Star Wars, watch the new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story after the jump.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie trailer finally debuts

Taking the internet somewhat by surprise, the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story debuted early this morning. Didn’t know another, non-Star Wars Episode VIII movie was coming? Well, now you do! Rogue One looks like it plans to fill in some gaps in the original trilogy’s storyline, showing us just how those Bothans died stealing the original Death Star plans.

We’ve got a new female lead, Forrest Whitaker is some sweet armor (yes, that Forest Whitaker), and what appears to be Star Wars samurai. Plus, AT-ATs and old school stormtroopers! Fans are going a little crazy for this thing.

Check out the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and read a plot synopsis for the movie after the jump.

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens is flawed but still fun

Does it surprise anyone that Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens blasted by $250 million after only three days in theaters? It shouldn’t, because the newest Star Wars release, regardless of fan reaction and critic review, is a cultural milestone. I had mixed feelings about The Force Awakens after seeing it, and things continue to nag at me the longer I think about them, but overall I really enjoyed the movie.

STAR WARS Bad Lip Reading videos for the original trilogy are hilariously nonsensical

The Star Wars Bad Lip Reading videos are the laugh you need

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a Bad Lip Reading video, which is unacceptable. The folks over there continuously create hilarious nonsensical videos from some of our favorite films, and this time around they’ve given us three new gems for the Star Wars original trilogy. The songs alone are worth the watch, but some of the one-liners and the use of Jack Black as Darth Vader are gold.

Watch three new Bad Lip Reading videos for Star Wars after the jump.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII – THE FORCE AWAKENS character posters recently made the rounds

Geek Out! is a quick glimpse of something new and cool without a story’s worth of text to wade through.

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens character posters

These character posters for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens debuted and were passed around a while ago, and I don’t know why it took me so long to share them after initially seeing them. The posters received a generally positive response around the Web, and as far as character posters go, they’re not too bad. I think people tend to forget how committed the Star Wars brand/franchise is to commercial marketing, and it’s not really a surprise that we’re already seeing extensive TV spots, international trailers, and character reveals by way of toys and action figures. Be prepared to see Star Wars plastered all over everything this holiday season.

Up above is the Star Wars character poster for Finn (John Boyega), and after the jump you can see posters for Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Leia (Carrie Fisher), and Rey (Daisy Ridley). Check them out!
