New 'Star Wars The Force Awakens' Footage

We now have less than four weeks before The Force Awakens releases in theaters. This is truly the final countdown. Are you as excited as we are? It seems like the whole world is excited! As we get closer to the big movie premiere, we’re probably going to continue to see teasers and ad spots. While we were told there will be no more official trailers, we are seeing regular TV spots and Internet ads and you can probably expect to continue seeing them right up to release. This weekend we got two new TV spots to advertise the film. One was premiered during the American Music Awards (Nov 22nd) just before the performance by Pentatonix. Here it is if you missed it: This one contained some pieces of old footage with some new footage spliced in. We see Rey and how she is waiting for her family. We hear words of…

New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Photos in EW Exclusive


If you are just itching to see more of The Force Awakens while we await the actual release of the movie, you’re going to love this exclusive from Entertainment Weekly. While we’ve seen one or two of these in the trailers already, most of the imagery is new, giving us another little taste of what we can expect from the film. The Marketing for The Force Awakens is in full swing and from now until the big reveal day, we can expect to see many more little goodies released. In these exclusive images, we see some amazing scenes from the film. There’s a Resistance X-Wing flying overhead as two Stormtroopers are met with demise. “We had women in stormtrooper costumes in the movie,” Abrams says, so audiences will be seeing a mixed gender fighting force from The First Order whether they realize it or not. (The armor isn’t form-fitting, of course.) We see some amazing scenes…

Terminally Ill Daniel Fleetwood who saw ‘Star Wars’ early has died #ForceForDaniel


If you have not yet heard the story of Daniel Fleetwood, get your tissues ready. The 32-year-old is terminally ill, suffering from spindle cell carcinoma, a type of cancer. Recently he found out 90 percent of his lungs are filled with tumors, and this past Tuesday, he beat his doctor’s prognosis giving him just two months to live. “I am pushing through this,” says Daniel, who takes frequent breaks to catch his breath. “I’m still here.” In his interview with PEOPLE, he goes on to explain how he has been a fan of Star Wars most of his life. The Houston, Texas native dreams about the series, follows the message boards and writes fan fiction of it. FLeetwood also had a dying wish: to see the new film The Force Awakens. Unfortunately, there is a good chance Daniel won’t still be living when the movie is released. “If I got to see…

First ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ TV Spot Looks to a New Generation’s Story


Disney has now released what will likely be the first of many TV spots. While we were told that there would be no more official trailers, who can say how many TV spots there will be between now and the big reveal day? While we still know very little about the plot, the latest TV spot and other marketing tells us a bit more. We can see that this will be a bit of a “passing of the torch” kind of story, at least in part. On the light side, we have Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) taking over for Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford), and over on the dark side, we see Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) promising to finish what Darth Vader started. There’s lots of questions about where Luke is but our guess is this is not going to be revealed until much…

Star Wars Fans Crash Fandango Buying Movie Tickets

back to the future

The Force is strong in Star Wars fans after the release of the most recent movie trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In fact, it might be too strong. At least, too strong for ticket seller sites like Fandango that were not prepared for the massive traffic and orders that were to come. On Monday night, after the trailer was released, fans of Star Wars flooded the ticket-seller sites of Fandango, AMC Theatres, Alamo Drafthouse and other providers, grinding the ticket-selling process to a halt. If you were one of the many trying to buy tickets you may have noticed the lag, delays, and just outright site crashes. Tickets for opening night are sold out but tickets for the days following the opening day are still available. With the sites back up and running, you can head on over and gets yours now. As of Tuesday morning, all of the…
