Now You Can Watch BB-8 Emotionally React To The Star Wars: The Force Awakens …

10 things I liked about the new Star Wars trailer.

Ever since the new, seemingly Luke Skywalker-less trailer for The Force Awakens debuted on Monday night, one fan theory has dominated all the others. A representative from Netflix has confirmed that Canada happens to be the sole region for which streaming rights for the hugely anticipated have been obtained. “The reason Netflix will be able to offer the much-anticipated movie in Canada next year — and not in the U.S. or anywhere else — has to do with the timing of when Disney’s pay-TV distribution deals were up for grabs,” reports Variety, which broke the news on Friday.ICONIC actor Debbie Reynolds celebrated daughter Carrie Fisher’s 59th birthday this week by posting a photo to Facebook, which harked back to the pair’s early years in Hollywood. The reason we don’t see Luke in the trailer or the official poster, suggest the Guardian, the Hollywood Reporter, Vulture, and many others, is that he has followed his father’s footsteps to the Dark Side and joined the Sith. As evidence, the Guardian points to the 1991 Dark Empire series of comics that had Luke teaming up with a reincarnated Emperor Palpatine (while noting that such stories were non-canonical).

Their movie titles slated for release within this calendar year fall under the purview of their current deal with American premium cable channel Starz. For someone weaned on comic books, it was easy to love the film and I became an instant fan buying the the merchandise, the books including its expanded universe, and what have you. Adding more fuel to the widespread recirculation has been a 2005 episode of IFC’s Dinner for Five, during which you can watch Mark Hamill “basically pitch evil Luke Skywalker to J.J. According to Movio Media, the average advance ticket holder is a regular cinemagoer who usually travels to see big-budget fantasies such as Jurassic World or Avengers: Age of Ultron on opening night, and spends 2.6 times more than the national average amount on watching movies.

The deal that Disney has with Netflix Canada, on the other hand, commenced with their 2015 releases after their earlier deal with Corus Entertainment and Bell Canada expired. The trailer, set to air during the halftime segment of Monday Night Football Oct. 19, was meant to air immediately before tickets for the theatrical release of the film went on sale. This puts Netflix Canada subscribers in the entirely enviable position of being among the first to taste this movie, easily one of the most hyped and anticipated this year.

In the video, Hamill describes to Kevin Smith (while Abrams listens in) how he once suggested Evil Luke to George Lucas for Return of the Jedi: As an actor that would be more fun to play. Records were broken on both sides of the Atlantic, with the US retailer Fandango reporting advance ticket sales eight times higher than for any other film on its first day of release, and the studio Disney claiming that more than 200,000 tickets were sold in 24 hours in the UK. Also given that this movie’s tickets have begun cropping up on online marketplaces at astronomical prices, it just may be cheaper for Americans to plan a road trip North of their border, and catch the movie at one of their Canadian friends’ homes.

I’ll have to come back, but it will be I have Han Solo in my crosshairs and I’ll be about to kill him or about to kill the Princess or about to kill somebody that we care about. The top two films of all time at the global box office, Avatar and Titanic, both feature a healthy dose of romance, an ingredient traditionally (if stereotypically) regarded as key to attracting female filmgoers. And Rey sitting in a tent in the desert with this dreamy look, it reminded me of how George Lucas wrote the intro for Luke Skywalker in “Star Wars” where he said he was a farm boy who was bored beyond belief and yearned for adventure among the stars.

Wonderful, wonderful intro with that voice of “Who are you?” That doesn’t sound like Princess Leia or even Gwendoline Christie’s Captain Phasma. I think part of this is the reptuation the games have earned for their mammoth cut scenes, which probably put a big percentage of people off even if the new game doesn’t have them, but it’s also simply that a slow-paced, complicated stealth game just isn’t the sort of thing that’s going to sell like an undemanding game like Assassin’s Creed or Call Of Duty. During the Star Wars celebration last April, John Boyega, the actor who plays Finn was asked if he was indeed a Stormtrooper since the first scene of the first-ever trailer showed him. But really, if you’re just a businessman who doesn’t actually care about games then making a really expensive game that’s never going to be a blockbusters actually doesn’t make sense.

Don’t get me wrong, The Phantom Pain is my favourite game of the year but it is actually possible to see how this big implosion at Konami happened, without just assuming everyone that works there is an idiot or a game-hating monster. Black, black, and black—except when he’s young Anakin Skywalker, which is when he moves from tan (when he’s just a child) to, in some pretty clear foreshadowing, brown mixed with black.

And at worst if you play it and it’s terrible you can put it on eBay or take to CeX at the end of the week and you will of most likely lost £7-£10. Meanwhile, no one really needed to tell us that Kylo Ren was evil: We just looked at his black robe and red lightsaber (another dead giveaway) and instinctively we knew it. Pre-ordering the game makes it more exciting (don’t quote me on why but it just does!) I’m not sure if this has been covered in the past as a Hot Topic, but I recently picked up some of the games I was targeting in the January sales from Asda for a tenner each.

If you read the new comics from Marvel titled, “Shattered Empire,” Kes Dameron and Shara Bey were revealed to be husband and wife with a son named Poe. I managed to cross Mortal Kombat X and Resident Evil Revelations 2 off my list, but still have The Witcher 3, Mad Max, and Transformers: Devastation in my sights. So was Yavin destroyed much like Alderaan in “Star Wars: A New Hope?” In the first trailer cut for “The Force Awakens,” Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker voices over “The Force is strong in my family.

Of course, all you have to do to figure out whether Robot Hand, aka Luke, is still a Jedi or whether he’s become a Sith is to figure out the color of the robe. Abrams likes to talk up the concept of the Mystery Box—unlabeled boxes with unknown contents, with the idea being that the mystery is more enjoyable than the revelation. They’ve gone to all this trouble of creating a completely new system that works like nothing else before and since and… I don’t think it’s either better or worse. If I had to come down on one side or the other though I’d have to admit that the fact I’ve hardly paid anything extra for access to 200+ songs is probably actually pretty good.

In the run up to Star Trek Into Darkness, the marketing team refused to confirm the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch’s character, and in fact Abrams and others lied directly to journalists, saying he wasn’t who everyone thought he was: Khan. If I was a Guitar Hero pro that kept practising and practising the same one I might feel differently, but I’m not and I assume the majority of other people probably aren’t either. In the lead up to the release of Super 8, viral teasers showed a sort of literal mystery box, in this case the car of a freight train, from which something was trying to escape.

In “Shattered Empire,” Leia senses Darth Maul who looked to have kicked the bucket in “The Phantom Menace” only to return during the Clone Wars as half-humanoid, half-cyborg as he was cleaved in half by Obi Wan Kenobi. I’m not going to bat at the hornets’ nest that is the ending of Lost, but arguably the same thing is also true of that show (which Abrams helped create) as well as Cloverfield (which Abrams produced). I don’t know if you want to count this as Inbox magic, considering it’s probably not quite the comeback the reader was hoping for, but Konami is planning to make a new Bomberman game… for mobiles. It’s Halloween this weekend and as it’s been a while since we’ve run a horror-themed Hot Topic, we’re asking what’s the scariest video game you’ve played – from the past two generations.

To avoid going over old ground you can only name games made for the Xbox 360 era of consoles and the current era (plus PC games from late 2005 onwards). That can include remakes if you really must, but we’re most interested in what you think of recent survival horror games, especially considering the recent mini-renassiance for the genre. But it doesn’t have to be an actual survival horror game to scare you, so feel free to name any game that’s freighted or freaked you out during the same period.
