New Trailer for Star Wars Release Throwback '5-25-77' Indie Comedy

5-25-77 Trailer

"How much do you want to be a director, Patrick?" "Do you NEED to be one?" MVD Entertainment has revealed a brand new official trailer for the Star Wars opening day movie 5-25-77, from filmmaker Patrick Read Johnson. Yes, this is the long lost, still-never-released (until now!!) nerdy Star Wars coming-of-age flick that has been in the works for more than a decade. We first posted a trailer for it back in 2009, when it was still called simply '77, now it's ready to shine all these years later. 5-25-77 is a coming-of-age comedy inspired by the true story of a nerdy, alienated, hopeful filmmaker named Pat Johnson about growing up, falling in love, and becoming the very first fan of the movie that changed everything, Star Wars. Starring John Francis Daley as Pat Johnson, with Austin Pendleton, Colleen Camp, Neil Flynn, and Justin Mentell. I've been waiting to watch this!! I'm so glad it's finally opening as we've been reporting on it since 2009. This time it really feels like the final, FINAL debut is happening. On VOD this October - check it out.

All for the Rebellion - Second Trailer for Diego Luna's 'Andor' Series

Andor Trailer

"We've chosen a side - we're fighting against the dark." Strap in! This looks like one of the best Star Wars streaming series yet. At Disney D23 this weekend - another official trailer was launched for Andor, the new spin-off series from Rogue One focusing on the rebel spy character Cassian Andor. It's arriving later in September - in just a few weeks. Set five years before the events of Rogue One, the series follows rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion. It's showurn by writer Tony Gilroy - which might be why it has such a revolutionary edge. Diego Luna returns again as Andor, with a cast featuring Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, as well as Genevieve O'Reilly as Mon Mothma; plus Forest Whitaker back as Saw Gerrera, veteran of the Clone Wars and the leader of a militant insurgent group. I'm really digging the revolutionary vibe of this whole series, about the brewing Rebellion and some of the people involved. It isn't easy to try to take down an entire Empire from the inside.

Watch This: 'Star Wars' Mashed Up with Shots in 'Top Gun: Maverick'

Star Wars Top Gun

"Trust your instincts! Don't think, just do." Kosinski's long-awaited, highly anticipated sequel Top Gun: Maverick is THE hit of the year, still playing in theaters and loved by almost everyone that has seen it. But everyone that has seen it has also probably recognized the similarities between the third act bombing run in Maverick and the original 1977 Star Wars movie Death Star trench run. It's almost an exact copy, though I'm sure Kosinski would say it's an homage, a tribute, to one of the greatest fighter jet movies of all time - Star Wars: A New Hope. (Who else loves X-Wings?!) One of the Star Wars YouTube channels made this comparison video playing multiple scenes back-to-back to show how similar they are. And yeah, it's super obvious that Top Gun is lifting from Star Wars, but you know, that's okay with me. I love all these movies.

Star Wars Making Of Doc 'Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi's Return' Trailer

Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi's Return Trailer

"It's a surreal world to be a part of… Coming back to it after all these years was very meaningful to me." Disney has revealed an official trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi's Return, the next making of doc to premiere following the series being available for streaming. They've been doing this with all the Marvel series already, launching the doc after the series is out, and now they're dropping this one for the Obi-Wan series. "This special explores the return of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to the screen, as well as Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen to their classic roles. Director Deborah Chow leads the cast and crew as they create new heroes and villains that live alongside new incarnations of beloved Star Wars characters, and an epic story that dramatically bridges the saga films." Of course it's a spoiler by now to reveal that Hayden is back as Anakin/Vader, but if you haven't seen the series yet now is the time to catch up and then watch this doc to see how they made it. Unfortunately most many people were disappointed by this series, and this doc won't change those feelings even though it really wants to try. Take a look anyway.

Star Wars Movie 'Rogue One' Returning to IMAX Theaters This Month

Rogue One

"I Am One With the Force and the Force Is With Me." Good news, Star Wars fans! Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is returning to theaters later this month. Disney has confirmed that they will re-release Rogue One in select IMAX theaters only starting on August 26th, 2022 as part of a promotion for the upcoming steaming series Andor, which brings back many of the classic Rogue One characters (except for Jyn Erso, of course). The IMAX re-release will also include an exclusive look at footage from the new series. Andor will debut streaming on Disney+ starting on September 21st (watch the full trailer) so this the perfect time to relaunch this "one-off" Star Wars movie on IMAX screens to bring more attention to this upcoming series - which looks superb so far. It's a packed month for IMAX debuts - Spielberg's classic E.T. just opened on IMAX screens on August 12th, and Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will show on IMAX on August 19th. You must check at your local IMAX to see if they'll be showing Rogue One (or something else).

Watch: 'Star Wars: Licorice Pizza' Trailer Focuses on Anakin & Padme

Licorice Pizza Meets Star Wars

"Are you an angel?" Check out this trailer remake for Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, put together by video editor Nelson Carvajal. This new version focuses on the relationship between Anakin & Padme, in comparison to the relationship between Alana & Gary in PTA's Licorice Pizza. "This age gap controversy had me thinking about a similar scenario," Nelson explains in his intro. "Anakin is very much a child and Padmé is an adult. No sexual line is ever crossed. Yet because it is a prequel and we know their eventual romantic fate, the age gap is very underlined. But does that make the movie immoral? I don't think so either." He's cleverly pushing back against the moral police from the film criticism world, who've been getting louder & louder the last few years. So why not add the Licorice Pizza trailer music with this footage?

Star Wars Eclipse Trailer

A whole new era for Star Wars! Lucasfilm unveiled a cinematic trailer for their new Star Wars Eclipse video game currently in early development. This was first revealed during the Video Game Awards show last night, and is an impressive trailer that plays more like a movie than a game. Set during the High Republic era, Star Wars Eclipse is an intricately branching action-adventure game that can be experienced in many ways, and puts the destinies of multiple playable characters in your hands, created in collaboration between Quantic Dream and Lucasfilm Games. If this was a trailer for a movie, we'd all be losing our shit right now. WOW! Not only is it an exciting trailer with the drumming and all kinds of crazy footage. But there's Yoda! And lightsabers! And big armies! And space battles! This is the kind of thrilling step-a-new-direction Star Wars needs to take. If only this was a movie! We have to post this trailer just because you have to see this. Even though it's a video game, this really does feel like something that should be seen in a cinema. Enjoy.
