Now that you think about it Luke Skywalker maybe on the new “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” poster after all…

StarWarsposter2

The new trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” just got put online right after it aired on “Monday Night Football” and yes I watched it on ESPN too.

The more I watch the trailers and see the poster, the more I think… did Luke join the dark side? Is Luke none other than Kylo Ren? I mean, think about it, right. You see Kylo Ren kneeling next to R2D2 and see a robotic hand touching R2 which gotta be Luke’s robotic hand so that’s a big clue that he maybe Kylo Ren the film’s main villain.

You see Princess Leia in the trailer. She still looks the same as she did in the original trilogy, she just looks older but Leia still looks gorgeous, though!

Oh man, what a great trailer. I can’t wait for the film. Bring it on!

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” promotes white-genocide? Seriously? Are people on drugs or what?

A hashtag about Star Wars made a trending topic on twitter today. The hashtag was #BoycotStarWars7 and what was the hashtag for? It’s basically ’cause of the diversity of the cast. For that reason alone, they claim that the film is too anti-white.

More here:

I would think the hashtag started was a direct attack against actor John Boyega… the guy wearing the Storm Trooper suit in the trailers.

Well I find this all pretty ludicrous. A diverse cast in Star Wars is nothing new. A diverse cast goes way back even to the original trilogy. The voice of Darth Vader who is none other than James Earl Jones is black. Lando Calrissian who was played by Billy Dee Williams is black. Mace Windu who was played by Samuel L. Jackson in the prequels is black. So the original trilogy and the prequels weren’t all just white actors.

If you watch the original trilogy and the prequels you would see actors and actresses in all different kinds of races which also includes Asian actors as co-stars.

George has always been diverse in his casting over the years.

Whoever started that hashtag on twitter is probably a racist against black people ’cause this person was bothered that John Boyega was all over the trailers.

I’m tired of people calling everything “racist” these days. When will it end?

I won’t boycott Star Wars “The Force Awakens” and I am a white guy myself. I’ll proudly go see the movie myself and I’m looking forward to it. I like the diverse cast and if people have a problem with it… fuck off.

It’s looking like that “The Force Awakens” plot will be about a missing Luke Skywalker after all…

For a long time now there has been rumors that the plot for Star Wars 7 is gonna be about a missing Luke Skywalker. The plot is gonna be that Han Solo, Chewie and the two droids were sent out to find him. They were possibly sent out by none other than Princess Leia? Leia knows that Luke is missing and they want Han and them to go find him. It’s looking like that plot is coming to a reality ’cause Luke wasn’t seen in the first two trailers but his voice over was heard in the second trailer. Will we finally get to see Luke in the third trailer tomorrow night? Even though I hate NFL football, I’m gonna have to watch… just to see the new trailer. They’re probably gonna show Luke in the next trailer but very briefly.

Luke is gonna be looking like this:

That’s an actual leaked behind the scenes photo of Mark Hamill on set.

Luke is not gonna get killed off in the “Force Awakens” at all ’cause Mark is already filming scenes for “Episode 8” so he’s definitely coming back for 8 and possibly 9.

If there’s any major character that is gonna get killed off in the next one is probably gonna end up being Han Solo. Han sacrifices himself to save Luke’s life is probably what’s gonna happen.

Luke will probably have a very small role in “The Force Awakens” ’cause we won’t see him ’til the very end, that’s just my prediction. Sounds like Luke has been missing for years ever since the events of “Return of the Jedi”. Leia misses her brother and she begs Han to go find him. So Han gets Chewie and the droids, they reunite with the Millennium Falcon.

I am gonna watch Monday Night Football but just for the trailer alone and then I’ll probably switch the channel after ’cause I’m not a big football fan anymore.

I’m so looking forward to the “Force Awakens” like most. Get ready for a box office hit, y’all. This one should break box office records so get ready for the really long lines on opening day. I don’t think I’m gonna see it on opening day, though… I’m gonna wait a couple of days until the crowds calm down and then I’ll see it. This movie WILL pack up the theaters for sure.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” official poster is finally out…

Great poster. While it is a great poster, there’s still no Luke Skywalker. How come Luke is not on the poster? Why all the secrecy toward Luke? I guess we’ll have to wait and find out for ourselves when we see the film in a few months. Hopefully, they show Luke in the new trailer tomorrow ’cause like it says here… a new trailer of “The Force Awakens” will get aired during “Monday Night Football”. I’m sure the new trailer will get put online after the game. Yes, you can see Carrie Fisher aka Princess Leia on the photo but no Luke.

Can’t wait for this film. I’m looking forward to it too.

Steven Spielberg says he’s still planning to direct “Indy 5” w/ Harrison Ford as Indy…

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg did a Q&A session to promote their latest movie, “Bridge of Spies” and it looks like that Steven is still planning to direct Indy 5.

In the video in the link below, Steven said:

“We’ve gotta figure this out because now,” Spielberg says. “Tom is tied with Harrison Ford: Harrison and I did four movies, Tom and I have done four movies. Now I’ll probably do an Indy 5 with Harrison. It’ll be five for Harrison, four for Tom… [Then] I’ve got to make another one with Tom, so that will be five for Tom, five for Harrison. And I think I’m going to leapfrog that way for the rest of my career. With Daniel Day-Lewis in everything else!”

http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/news/621859-will-indiana-jones-5-reteam-steven-spielberg-and-harrison-ford

So it’s looking like Spielberg & Ford are gonna go ahead and make Indy 5 even without George Lucas being involved. Which is pretty cool actually. With Lucas no longer being involved, that will mean more creative writing control for Spielberg & Ford.

Now it’s looking like it maybe a possibility that Ford will be playing Indy again, this means that Ford will be reprising his roles to three of his most well-known characters: Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Rick Deckard. Yes, he’s still committed to playing Rick Deckard for the “Blade Runner” sequel too.

The question is will Harrison ever reprise his role to another famous character of his? That character is Jack Ryan. I doubt it ’cause Paramount is focused on a young Jack Ryan. Even though Harrison expressed interest in returning to the character before, I don’t think Paramount wants him back for whatever reason. Which is a shame ’cause I really loved “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger”.

It’ll be cool if Harrison comes back as Indy but they better NOT bring Shia Labeouf back. Oh please don’t bring Shia back ’cause he was terrible in “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”.

Apparently, “Star Wars: Episode 8” is already filming and looks like Luke Skywalker will be involved…

Looks like Rian Johnson has already started filming “Star Wars: Episode 8” and it looks like Luke Skywalker will be involved in Episode 7, 8 and 9 after all! AICN gave us a cool pic of Mark Hamill hanging out at a bar with crew mates during a break from filming and as you can see you see a clean shaven Mark Hamill. As you can see Mark’s hair is kind of long so Luke Skywalker can look kind of young. Look like Mark Hamill is gonna be involved throughout the new trilogy. They didn’t confirm whether or not Mark will be involved in 8 but looking at this pic in the link below, it looks like Mark is involved.

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/73103

The question is will Harrison Ford still be involved in 8 and 9? Probably not. I predict that “The Force Awakens” film will be the final time you will see Han Solo ’cause I’m still predicting that they’re gonna kill him off in that film. Han Solo sacrifices himself to save his friends is what they’re going for probably.

I so can’t wait for “The Force Awakens”, though. It’s only a couple of months away.

Colin Trevorrow set to direct “Star Wars Episode IX”…

So JJ Abrams is the director for Star Wars 7. Rian Johnson is the director for Star Wars 8. Now Colin Trevorrow is set to direct Star Wars 9.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-episode-9-director-807838

So how many Star Wars films is there gonna be? I’m thinking there is going to be many of them. It’s definitely not gonna end at 9. Star Wars will be like James Bond, they’ll keep going with them so there could be like 20 to 30 Star Wars movies or more. Plus there will be a bunch of spin-offs.

However, we must concentrate on this new trilogy ’cause it reunites the original cast which is every Star Wars fans dream. We all know that Carrie, Mark and Harrison is reuniting for 7 but will they be up for starring in 8 and 9 as well? Who knows! We’ll have to wait and see what Rian and Colin says.

Harrison is getting too old to be playing Han Solo so I think he’ll be done with that character after this film but will JJ kill Han Solo off in 7? I read somewhere that Harrison tried to get George to kill Han Solo off in “Jedi” by sacrificing himself but George wouldn’t go for it. I’m thinking they “might” actually go for that idea for this film but we’ll have to wait and see.

While they’re gearing up for the new trilogy we still haven’t seen 7 yet which we will around Christmas time. I sure can’t wait for “The Force Awakens” though. I’m gonna be in the theaters for that one for sure. I predict JJ will give us a good Star Wars movie. I have faith in this.

New “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” still photos released by EW…

A bunch of still photos from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has been released by Entertainment Weekly and the photos are pretty cool. Something that Star Wars fans can get all excited about for sure.

You get to finally see recent photos of the two famous droids: R2 and C3PO… not surprisingly the two droids still look the same after 30 years since “Return of the Jedi”.

They still won’t show us Luke and Leia for some reason. They already show us Han Solo in the trailer. Leia was in the trailer but you can’t see her face, she was seen handing over a light saber. I think they’ll show us Luke and Leia in the next trailer possibly.

I really am looking forward to “The Force Awakens” like most people and I’m already feeling it’s gonna be the best film of 2015 hopefully.

Hopefully JJ can give us a good Star Wars movie. We need a good Star Wars movie where we can walk out of the theaters with big smiles on our faces and I think this film will do that. I think JJ will make Star Wars fans happy with this one. Looking good so far.

Who’s gonna play the young Han Solo? My bets are gonna be either Chris Pratt or Channing Tatum…

Disney confirmed that Han Solo is getting his own film but it will be a standalone. It will focus on Han Solo’s life growing up. So that means someone will be playing a young Han Solo, the wisecracking smuggler. The film will be directed by the two guys who gave us “The Lego Movie” and the two “21 Jump Street” films.

Who is gonna play the young Han Solo? Like the title says my bets are gonna be on Chris Pratt or Channing Tatum. I wouldn’t be surprised if they get Tatum, though. I hope not ’cause I’m not a big fan of Tatum at all… I would prefer Pratt over Tatum.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/han-solo-star-wars-spinoff-807153

It’ll be interesting to see the history of Han Solo of how he became a smuggler and all that stuff. I’d like to see more insight on his friendship with Lando so a young black actor will have to play Lando for sure. Keep in mind that Han Solo has been dealing with Jaba the Hut for years so Jaba is probably gonna be involved. It’ll show how Han and Chewie met.

Look at Han Solo’s history for more:

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Han_Solo

Will the film use some of that stuff? Han Solo was born on planet Corellia and fell in love with a woman named Bria Tharen so I wonder if Bria Tharen will be a character in the movie? They probably will.

Will Harrison Ford be involved in this film? Probably not ’cause this film will focus on a young Han Solo probably but still there’s a possibility that Harrison could get a small role at the end of the film to explain the character growing up.

This is one spinoff that I’m actually interested in!

Actually, I think starting “Indiana Jones” all over again might be a pretty good idea!!!

Kathleen Kennedy confirms that the next Indiana Jones film is definitely happening but they don’t know when yet. However, when they do finally move the film forward, I expect Harrison not to return to the role ’cause he’s getting too old for the role obviously so I’m thinking it maybe best to replace him with someone else.

http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/lucasfilm-new-indiana-jones-film-in-the-works-20150506

On top of that, an Indiana Jones reboot would be pretty interesting as long as they don’t make it an exact remake of the original trilogy. They shouldn’t remake, “Raiders” at all and just make an original film. Their own idea and their own story.

I used to be against Indy moving on with Harrison and re-booting but hey, what are you gonna do? Harrison getting too old to play the role and he’ll probably be 80 by the time the film starts going.

Do you really want George Lucas and Steven Spielberg back? If they did, be on the lookout for more goofy scenes like the fridge explosion. So you should thank Disney for finally getting rid of Lucas.

I enjoyed “The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” film but my only problems with it was Shia Labeouf being in it and yes, I’ll have to agree that the fridge explosion was kind of wacky. Other than that, I thought mixing Indy and sci-fi together was an interesting concept!

I’m such a huge Indy fan, though. I loved “Raiders”, “Temple of Doom” and “The Last Crusade” as well. Of course, “Raiders” is the best Indy film… that film is classic.

Could Indy be successful without Harrison? I’d say yes. I think an Indy film without Harrison could be a box office smash if they made it right. I think this franchise was meant to last forever just like Star Wars, Star Trek, and James Bond… ya know?
