Star Wars: The Last Jedi

2017 Science Fiction/Action/Adventure Rating TBD

May the 4th: Happy 'Star Wars' Day

3 weeks ago

Let's see, did anything go down in the Star Wars world since last we talked in April? Nope, can't really think of anything.

Oh yeah, there was that whole Star Wars celebration thing that happened in Orlando. We tried to hold most of the news from the convention for this story...

Monday Mixer: 'Fate of the Furious' sets a new record

1 month ago

There's one aspect of the box office that we don't really talk much about, but is probably something that we should at least acknowledge. Given that our site's main focus is the home entertainment market in the United States, we have mostly focused on the domestic box office.

In the past...

The first 'The Last Jedi' trailer offers some clues

1 month ago

I have not read the script to The Last Jedi, nor have I sought out any of the almost certain to exist spoilers out there, but I'm a Star Wars fan darn it. It's pretty much impossible for me to watch a trailer for a Star Wars film and not...

April the 4th: 'Rogue One' now on Blu-ray & DVD

2 months ago

OK, fine.

It's technically no longer the 4th, but as they say, it's close enough for government work, right? Sorry about the one-day delay but part of playing catch up from vacation involves having to prioritize and make sacrifices. So, it seems that in the grand scheme of things, getting our...

Monday Mixer: 'Beauty and the Beast' sets a new box office record

2 months ago

This weekend was (mostly) free of any real surprises, both at the box office and on the basketball court. There were very few upsets and even fewer buzzer beaters. Likewise, Beauty and the Beast easily led from wire-to-wire at the box office.

It's not that I was really expecting any of...

March the 4th: First look at 'Han Solo' cast

3 months ago

The last month was anything but boring when it came to Star Wars news, but consider this: we still haven't seen a single bit of footage from The Last Jedi. While it seems that Disney is departing from the strategy it established on The Force Awakens, you have to remember...

'Rogue One' rebels on DVD & Blu-ray on April 4

3 months ago

From a galaxy far, far away to your living room, Disney has set April 4 as the release date for the DVD and Blu-ray of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The latest Star Wars film debuted in theaters on December 16 and has earned over $527 million at the...

February the 4th: 'The Last Jedi'

4 months ago

Will I make it? I mean, I had good intentions to have this news story queued up on Friday waiting for the 4th, but Murphy's law and all that.

So, here I sit with about 40 minutes until the 5th, typing away to make this deadline. The question remains, will I...

Monday Mixer: 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' has an official title

4 months ago

Don't call it a comeback, M. Night's been here for years.

Just when you think you have a pretty good handle on the box office, a crazy week will pop up and leave you questioning everything. Don't get me wrong, I was very much intrigued by Split, but never in a...

Our Predictions: The 2017 box office will be ruled by 'VIII'

4 months ago

A new year is a time for new beginnings. The counter is reset to zero and everyone is back at the starting line.

Well, that's the idea at least.

At probably the exact moment that I'm typing this, Rogue One has officially become the highest grossing film of 2016. What that means...

January the 4th: 'Rogue One' Redux

5 months ago

No, that headline isn't a subtle reference to more adventures with the Rogue One crew, it's just a reminder that in the aftermath of Rogue One's release, this month's news coverage is going to be dominated by Rogue One news, naturally.

Speaking of the latest film in the Star Wars franchise...

December the 4th: 'Star Wars' month is here!

6 months ago

December has quickly become Star Wars month for Disney. The studio is rather known for establishing and maintaining film release trends. For instance, it's no coincidence that Disney has nine of the top ten Thanksgiving weekend releases of all time.

Like clockwork, we know that there will be two (or three...

November the 4th: We have a young Lando

7 months ago

I really love these monthly updates of the Star Wars universe, but I've quickly learned that with so many different tangents in the Star Wars world, it's hard to keep up with everything. Think about it.

There are the films obviously, but there's also the Star Wars Rebels animated TV show...

October the 4th: Double the 'Star Wars' fun

8 months ago

Did you miss us last month? I could make up so many excuses and argue that since the 4th of September fell on a Sunday, I should get a pass. But, the reality is that last month was just crazy and something had to give.

And to be honest, Star Wars...

August the 4th: A new 'Star Wars' TV series?

10 months ago

I promised that this month would be pretty big, huge even, when it came to Star Wars news and I think I was able to live up this promise. With Star Wars Celebration Europe and Comic Con, Disney and LucasFilm was able to get out in front of massive audiences...

Who is Alden Ehrenreich? Han Solo, that's who

1 year ago

What do they say about best-laid plans and all that? The plan was to curate all of the previous month's best Star Wars news and present it to you in a neat little package on the 4th of every month. Go figure, that not two days go by and the...

Monday Mixer: 'Deadpool' destroys box office records

1 year ago

It's the week that studios wait the entire year for, no not the Oscars. It's the week of our National Sales Summit and we are able to meet with the studios and discuss the future of home entertainment.

OK, maybe it's more the week I wait for every year, but still...

'Star Wars: Episode VIII' is in production

1 year ago

Normally, we don't post stories when films go into production because it literally happens every single day, but when you are the sequel the largest grossing film of all time and a Star Wars film, you get special treatment. Oh, and there's a video.

Not content to sit back on its...

Tuesday Mixer: One important 'Force Awakens' character confirms her return

1 year ago

Tuesday is the new Monday.

Well, after the weekend I had, I hope none of you judge me too harshly for being a little late this week with the weekend wrap-up. I started the weekend off with the final concert from one of my favorite local band, Those Darlins. This was...

Lay off of 'Star Wars,' all sequels are derivative

1 year ago

It's been a few weeks now since the release of The Force Awakens and I've noticed a disturbing trend recently. It seems that the "cool" thing to do among online bloggers and critics is to bash the film and call it derivative. Or a glorified remake. Or a rehash. Or...

Monday Mixer: 'The Force Awakens' bigger than expected

1 year ago

If there was any question who the box office king truly is, this classic advertisement from 1977 still rings true.

Cue John Williams score. Star Wars was back this weekend and back in a big, bad way.

We all knew it was coming and yet as we wake up this morning, we...

The odds 'Awaken' for Star Wars

2 years ago

We are officially less than a month away from the opening of The Force Awakens, so it only seems fitting that we get serious about the latest Star Wars film. Yeah, because countless stories in the last year about the film hasn't quite done the trick yet.

Tim and I made...

Monday Mixer: Critics & audiences both pan 'Pan'

2 years ago

Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out.

Oh, hey there. Sorry, just ignore what you just saw, er read. The good news is that we are back yay! The bad news is that there were more than a few unexpected hiccups in the transition.

Note to self, no matter how much...

Monday Mixer: Kong vs. Godzilla, it's going to happen

2 years ago

It's been a week or so since last we talked. Holidays and vacations are wonderful things but they leave a mess of delayed work tasks in their wake. Some things take priority and other things make little sense. I mean really, who would read a Monday Mixer on a Wednesday?

But...

'Star Wars' news is all the rage

2 years ago

It might sound like a broken record, but perhaps you've heard that there's a new Star Wars film coming out this year. In my absence last week, Tim was kind enough to pick up the Star Wars slack and post a few stories about "Force Friday" and several new TV...

Monday Mixer: Ghostbusters video captures remake issue perfectly

2 years ago

You'll have to forgive me if I'm a little slow this morning. Not only am I trying to get my legs back under me in this whole MM thing after a couple of weeks away, but our hockey team won the league championship last night.

In case you are unfamiliar with...

Monday Mixer: First look at 'X-Men's new Nightcrawler

2 years ago

For the first time in over two months, I woke up with a clean face. The annual playoff beard is no more for 2015. My beloved Nashville Predators had a great unexpected resurgence to prominence in the NHL this season and while it ended on a sour note and much...

It's official, three 'Star Wars' films in 18 months

2 years ago

Tim and I consider ourselves to be quite lucky to work in the industry that we both love and adore. One of the fringe benefits of working in the film industry is that sometimes we get access to confidential information, but the trade-off is that we are often sworn to...

Monday Mixer: Cowabunga! 'TMNT' rules the day

3 years ago

Say what you will about Michael Bay (and I've said many things), there is one thing that you cannot deny, the dude can open an action movie. And so it happened again this weekend with the debut of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, it also marked another nail in the coffin...

Monday Morning Mixer: 'Man' beats 'Boys'

3 years ago

I just knew that this weekend was brewing up to be one for the ages. After the remarkable comeback and then heart-breaking tie at the World Cup for Team USA, it just felt like this mornings MMM would be epic.

To be honest, it's not THAT epic, but it is pretty...

Five 'Star Wars' rumors that we made up (or did we?)

3 years ago

It's going to be a long 18 months (exactly), or 548 days, until Star Wars: Episode VII is released. Not that we're keeping count or anything.

On December 18, 2015, the Force will return to theaters with a vengeance, but that still leaves plenty of times to have some fun with...

Video of J.J. Abrams from 'Star Wars' set with new charity effort

3 years ago

Star Wars fans are a unique group. Not only are they among the most passionate groups but many of them are also very philanthropic.

J.J. Abrams, director for next year's much anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII, is also a fan. It seems natural that he lead the charitable ways. In a...

Adam Driver all but confirmed for 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

3 years ago

Variety is reporting that Girls actor Adam Driver has landed the role of the villain in Star Wars: Episode VII. Disney did not comment on the news, but that hasn't stopped everyone in the free world from running it as the gospel truth in the last couple of hours.

Initially, I...

Monday Morning Mixer: 'Iron Man' is the man

4 years ago

I can already hear you laughing at me. It is true that last week I said that I would improve on getting the MMM out in the morning. It's also true that I have failed you for yet another week.

Of course, it's still the morning when I write this, but...

Monday Morning Mixer: Leftovers rule over Thanksgiving

4 years ago

Black Friday.

Cyber Monday.

Monday Morning Mixer.

What's with every day having a special moniker these days? Can't we just call Friday, "Friday" and Monday, "Monday?" Of course not, we live in a society with so much noise that "Just Another Friday" is quickly lost in the drone, but "Black Friday" stands apart...

What will we see in future 'Star Wars' movies?

5 years ago

After Tuesday's game-changing news about the sale of LucasFilm to Disney and the imminent development of Star Wars: Episode VII, Episode VIII and Episode IX, the question remains as to what exactly will we get in 2015?

Will we get films that mirror the prequel trilogy, or will we finally get...

The Force is strong with Disney

5 years ago

In news that is so shocking that I actually had to check a calendar to make sure that I didn't accidentally step into a worm hole and wake up on April Fool's Day, Disney announced today that it had acquired LucasFilm for $4.05 billion.

Let that sink in for a moment.

While...
