Everyone pretty much agrees that Empire Strikes Back is objectively the best of the franchise, but which one is the worst? Maria’s pick might surprise you…

Stick around for Movie Releases, where we talk about this weekend’s new movies and which ones look the most promising. And we also talk about Selma, the Martin Luther King Jr. biopic that just came out, as well as the new Ant-man trailer that came out last week.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Why Does Everyone Love J.J. Abrams?

star wars j.j. abrams

From Star Trek and Star Wars to Lost and Fringe, this celebrated film and television writer/producer/director is on a bit of a roll.

This week on Now Conspiring, Maria and I breakdown the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We also discuss Abrams’ best projects and why he’s managed to cement himself as one of the most important directors of our time, and whether or not his success will continue.

Plus, we do a roundup of some incredible Oscar contenders that will be releasing soon, including Angelina Jolie’s second directorial gig: the WWII epic, Unbroken, and why should love it as much as we do.

Hope you enjoy the show, and be sure to subscribe to us on iTunes for instant access to available episodes. Enjoy!

First Trailer For ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Has The Droid We’re Looking For.

Just. Wow.

Lots of fun, inventive ideas here. I’m especially glad they strayed from dwelling on the old characters, aside from the Falcon, in favor of the next generation (and future of the franchise).

Still wish we knew who that Sith was (my money’s on Adam Driver). He’s probably an Inquisitor (see Star Wars: Rebels), and my theory for that cross-lightsaber is that it’s so powerful, it exhausts extra power. Or it just looks cool.

The Best Story Rumor for ‘Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens’

Kofi Outlaw | Screenrant:

There’s been so much secrecy surrounding J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII that we didn’t even known what the customary subtitle to the film would be. We finally know that the full title of the film will be Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, and that knowledge allows us to begin to speculate about what that subtitle may imply.

For months on end there has been a steady stream of rumors about Episode VII’s storyline – and there a curious amount of those rumors which could be seen as fitting in perfect synch with what the title “Force Awakens” could be hinting at.

The article goes on to detail a pretty convincing plot synopsis for the upcoming movie.

Honestly, I’m not the biggest fan of the new subtitle. It lacks the epic rush you get from hearing a subtitle like Empire Strikes Back or Revenge of the Sith.

But if you read this take on what the movie could be about, you might (like I did) rethink how well the title fits into this risky, but ambitious, entry. Time will tell, of course, if J.J. will go ahead and title the next movie as Wrath of Han.

‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Wraps Filming

Alex Ritman | THR: 

The Star Wars: Episode VII team descended upon London’s Science Museum en masse Saturday night for a huge celebration many have speculated could be the film’s wrap party.

J.J. AbramsMark HamillHarrison FordCarrie FisherDaisy RidleyAndy Serkis and John Boyega were all in attendance, with Boyega posting several images and videos onto Instagram of him with his co-stars. One showed him dancing to Stevie Wonder‘s Superstition with Ridley, while another saw him next to R2-D2, captioned “home time buddy.” Regular Abrams collaborator Simon Pegg was also at the event, leading to further rumors that the actor-director could have landed himself a part in the film.

This movie is going to be huge. Like Titanic huge.

Not sure how I feel about Simon Pegg’s possible involvement, though. If that’s the case, it’s certainly a sign of J.J. Abrams’ growing talent harem.
