Force Awakens Photos Reveal New Characters

Some purportedly leaked images from Star Wars: The Force Awakens have made their way online.

Be advised that some minor SPOILERS follow because two of the images below claim to reveal more original trilogy characters are in Episode VII.

Making Star Wars strikes again, posting these two images that show Han Solo, Rey and Finn aboard the Millennium Falcon. The second image appears to show Domnhall Gleeson’s bad guy character, reportedly called The General, opposite Captain Phasma.

Indiana Jones 5 Reportedly Coming 2018

The next entry in Lucasfilm’s popular adventuring movie franchise, Indiana Jones V, is just over three years away, according to a new report.

Ain’t It Cool claims an inside “trustworthy” source has told them that Lucasfilm plans to release the next chapter in Indy’s adventure during the fourth quarter of 2018.

Prior reports suggest Spielberg is eyeing Chris Pratt to take up the mantle from Harrison Ford of the iconic treasure-hunting adventurer in the new movie. Pratt has since responded to the casting rumors, saying “it’s nothing until it’s something.” Considering how well Jurassic World performed with Pratt as the film’s lead, it sure does increase the likelihood of him jumping on board.

Lex Luthor Is Going to Comic-Con

It was already likely that director Zack Snyder and actors Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot would attend this year’s San Diego Comic-Con to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. After all, they dazzled fans at last year’s event with a brief sneak peek of the movie. And now the film’s Lex Luthor, Jesse Eisenberg, has confirmed that he will be at the convention this year.

Speaking to Collider, Eisenberg confirmed his Comic-Con attendance, saying, “I’ll be there…I think I’m there for the hour I’m on the stage.”

Eisenberg was then asked which DC movie he’s looking forward to most, and rather than giving a direct answer, he simply expressed his admiration of Batman v Superman screenwriter Chris Terrio: “I like what this writer does, this guy Chris Terrio,” he said. “He wrote this movie we did and I just think he’s so great. He’s such a good writer. I like what he does with characters, I like what he does with wordplay and cleverness. I like anything he writes.”

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Preserves the Original’s Spirit

I love the first Mirror’s Edge so much that I literally cheered when the reboot, now called Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, was announced at E3 2013. Needless to say, I’ve been tracking Catalyst’s progress closely. I’m ready to be extremely excited if returning developer DICE can successfully recapture the free-running, first-person, gun-free, primary-color-palletted original. Conversely, if they screw it up somehow, I’ll lead the pitchfork-and-torch mob to DICE’s door.

Good news: we’re tracking toward the former happening rather than the latter. I finally got to play the new Mirror’s Edge, and I came away very happy. DICE doesn’t seem to have screwed it up. They’ve doubled down on the de-emphasis of firearms. In fact, they even do the original game better: you can’t even pick up a gun in Catalyst.
