May the 4th be with you.

Seems fated that I finally finish my report on Celebration and post it on this day. :mrgreen:

I'm curious as to just what films the Star Wars trailers have been attached to. I thought Avengers 2 would have been a prime candidate--wouldn't Disney want to promote their own film? It certainly would have made more sense to show the Star Wars trailer than the trailer to that Vin Diesel witch hunter movie.

I've heard that different trailers are playing with it all over...nothing seems contractually attached.

We did get Tomorrowland with the Avengers I saw, though.

A fun past time has been watching reaction videos to the recent trailer. Here's one from when it first screened at Celebration.

We got Star Wars with our Avengers 2 (in 3D, no less, but didn't look as good as the Jurassic 3D)--
No Tomorrowland, though, just the Big Budget Director Hired Adam Sandler one, and didn't get Vin Diesel as a Witch Hunter, but got Dwayne Johnson, Earthquake Rescue....Okay, you tell 'em apart.

Yeah, I wonder who determines what trailers go in front of a given movie… I saw Avengers at two different theater chains (AMC and Cinemark/Century) and saw the same trailers (Vin Diesel: Witch Hunter, Wreck-It Sandler, Jurassic Star Lord, Monochromatic Four, Clooneyland, and Thomas the Tank Engine.)

What's going on here? Did she say there're rats?

(I've actually only seen the first Gremlins.)

It's almost like everyday during Celebration Ray Park would pause at least once during his autograph sessions to give all of the fans a show. :mrgreen:

StarWars.com has an exclusive interview with photographer Annie Leibovitz setting up the forth-coming Vanity Fair magazine issue that will preview her photographs from the set of Episode VII. The interview also revealed the name of Andy Serkis' character: Supreme Leader Snoke.

(I'm calling it early, but why does that make me picture some alien version of Stephen Fry from the Hobbit movies? :? )

With the purchase by Disney, it obviously meant SW was going back to Marvel. And this year has seen the first batch of new books, all under the official canon. I read the first issue of the Princess Leia mini and liked it (Mark Waid is a very good writer and I think he did a fine job setting up the story and staying faithful to the SW universe). So I'd say check out the new Marvel books and see what you think.
