The Star Wars trailer is so awful, I'm still unconvinced it's not a hoax going around. Fan hoax trailers were more believable and exiting. — Grace Lynn (@PixelGoth) November 28, 2014Continue Reading
“The thing that I tried to emphasise in the story was that if the Kents found this boy, Kal-El, who had the power that he did, he would have most likely killed them both in short order,” Abrams told Empire. “And the idea that these parents would see – if they were lucky to survive long enough – that they had to immediately begin teaching this kid to limit himself and to not be so fast, not be so strong, not be so powerful. “The result of that, psychologically, would be fear of oneself, self-doubt and being ashamed of what you were capable of. Extrapolating that to adulthood became a fascinating psychological profile of someone who was not pretending to be Clark Kent, but who was Clark Kent. Who had become that kind of a character who is not able or willing to accept who he was and what his destiny was.”We’re still not exactly clear on the direction Zack Snyder is taking Man of Steel but Abrams said it didn’t look far off and he was glad for it. The interview inevitably turned to the topic of Star Wars: Episode VII and how the director would approach the franchise he loves so dearly as compared to Star Trek.
“I don’t know because we’re just getting started. So it’s a great question that I hope I’ll have a good answer to when I know what the answer is. There are infinitely more questions than answers right now, but to me, they’re not that dissimilar. Though I came at these both from very different places, where they both meet is a place of ‘Ooh, that’s really exciting.’ And even though I was never a Star Trek fan, I felt like there was a version of it that would make me excited, that I would think ‘that’s cool, that feels right, I actually would want to see that. “How we were going to get there, what the choices were going to be, who was going to be in it – all of those things I knew would have to be figured out, but it was all based on a foundation of this indescribable, guttural passion for something that could be. It’s a similar feeling that I have with Star Wars. I feel like I can identify a hunger for what I would want to see again and that is an incredibly exciting place to begin a project. The movies, the worlds could not be more different but that feeling that there’s something amazing here is the thing that they share.”Meanwhile, the latest Star Trek Into Darkness trailer was released this past week.

You know, I wouldn’t go back, I’d go forward. I would want to create characters that would resonate the way that they did. I mean not that I don’t want to see [the new movies], I would be excited to, but I also feel like I would want to explore a very different part of that universe.And if there was a Han Solo solo film, would he have a hand in something that meant recasting the famous character? “That I would never want to do. Some things may not be rebooted,” he said, in his most serious voice.

Billy Dee said, he has been asked, but hasn’t decided if he is going to do it or not yet.Hasn’t decided?!? Come on, Billy, please! I think I speak for all Star Wars fans when I say, we want to know what Lando’s up to? I’m hoping he retired well, got a nice place to spend the rest of his days, y’know? Who else from the original cast are you hoping will appear? Still no word on whether or not Chewbacca will make an appearance. Though I fear Peter Mayhew wouldn’t be up to reprise him, there’s no reason another couldn’t fill that furry suit, right? Source: CBM
