Star Wars The Force Awakens: IMAX vs Standard release

Star Wars The Force Awakens: IMAX vs Standard release

One bit of detail has been cleared up in the wake of the release of the first Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer. That detail is in the IMAX filming of this movie. Earlier this year it was suggested by Bad Robot productions that massive IMAX cameras would be utilized in the filming of Star Wars 7. Images provided by Disney today make clear what that'll mean for those of you heading to theaters in December of 2015: you're going to need to head to an IMAX theater to get the full experience.

Star Wars 7 lightsaber arguments miss the point

Star Wars 7 lightsaber arguments miss the point

When I woke up this morning, there was an early Christmas gift waiting for me on my phone. A new Star Wars trailer — a teaser, really — was released today, apparently JJ Abrams attempt to cause Black Friday accidents as we lazily sauntered around stores looking for deals. I was left with a feeling of “oh, neat, it’s all the things I expected”. There are Storm Troopers, the Millennium Falcon, X-Wings, and a Sith lord. There’s also a new light saber.

It's time - the first teaser trailer for Star Wars VII is here. Star Wars 7, also known as The Force Awakens, is set to be one of the biggest movie releases in the history of movie releases.

Universal Pictures nabs Steve Jobs movie

Universal Pictures nabs Steve Jobs movie

Last week, Sony put its anticipated Steve Jobs movie in turnaround, and rumor had it Universal Pictures would be stepping up to take over. Nary a week later, that move has been confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter by a Universal spokesperson. Few other official details are available at this time, but sources say the movie was shopped around for over $30 million. This follows about two years of development Sony has shoveled into the movie, something that faltered after Christian Bale backed out.

Star Wars 7 trailer released this week: here’s where [UPDATED: More theaters!]

This "holiday week-end" you'll be able to see a trailer for Star Wars The Force Awakens, aka Star Wars 7, in select theaters throughout the United States. A limited number of theaters are said to be participating in this "preview" for the film - though we're not entirely sure why our source uses that word. One worker for a theater chain suggests that an internal email has been sent notifying employees that the preview will be coming. We must assume it'll be coming in a steel truck with armed guards, but no confirmation on that bit yet.

If there's an upcoming movie almost guaranteed to get anybody who grew up in the 90s salivating, it's Jurassic World, and so you'll have to forgive us for getting unduly excited about the first trailer teaser. Not due to open in theaters until June 12th, 2015, the movie takes us back to an island of dinosaurs in the most exciting - and, unsurprisingly, dangerous - theme park you can imagine, with original director Steven Spielberg returning to act as executive producer on the new installment.

AMC introduces the Unlimited Movie Ticket: Interstellar first

AMC introduces the Unlimited Movie Ticket: Interstellar first

Back when Star Wars was first released, it quickly became common - at least with a classic like that - to go to a film more than once in the theater. The trend was summoned once again with Titanic, then again with the Star Wars prequels. AMC Theaters and Paramount Pictures have caught on to the trend at last, revealing an "Unlimited Ticket." This is not like the subscription passes of the past for certain theaters or certain brands. Instead, this is a first-of-its-kind Interstellar-specific ticket.
