The next 45 punters will get a free Star Wars Blu-ray boxset to join their purchase of the game.
Furthermore, customers will have the chance to buy the game for just 99p if they trade-in one of the following – Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, FIFA Street 4, Street Fighter X Tekken, Twisted Metal, Ninja Gaiden 3, Asura's Wrath, Ridge Racer Unbounded or Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13.
“Here at Blockbuster, we are huge Star Wars fans and we know our customers are as well,” games boss James Morton stated. “That’s why we’re delighted to be offering such fantastic deals and running this special midnight event.”

If you listen to the Forcecast podcast you will smile at what I bought today while out shopping.  Just need a Kitster figure now and my journey will be complete.

And a little bit more...

World of Warcraft Senior Producer John Lagrave admits that the recent dip in subscribers is at least partially attributable to the popularity of Star Wars: The Old Republic.

World of Warcraft is still the top banana in the MMO bunch but it's definitely seen a slide in subscriber numbers over the past year. After peaking at 12 million in late 2010, user numbers were down to 10.3 million at the end of September 2011, still a huge amount but a significant loss nonetheless. Much of that drop, according to Lagrave, has to be attributed to EA's Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO that launched in December.

"We certainly do look at [where WoW players go], and we have a very smart bunch of guys who do our analytics for us," he told Eurogamer. "Of course people are trying Star Wars - our development team are trying Star Wars! I'm one of the few people who's still playing it actually, but yeah we've seen a dip in subs.";postID=7304175223024977403
Michael Bay has defended the latest change to the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Movie.

“Paramount marketing changed the name. They made the title simple,” Bay wrote overnight on his website. “The characters you all remember are exactly the same, and yes they still act like teenagers. Everything you remember, why you liked the characters, is in the movie. This script is being developed by two very smart writers, with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles. They care VERY MUCH about making this film for the fans. Everyone on this team cares about the fans. Just give them a chance. Jonathan the director, is a major fan of the whole franchise. HE’S NOT GOING TO LET YOU DOWN.”

Here in the UK we are used to the name changing of TMNT.  When the cartoon and toys first came out in the eighties it was called Teenage Mutant HERO Turtles over here as it was thought Ninja was too violent.

As I predicted a while back Netflix has said NO to Terra Nova. It seems every time a show gets cancelled Netflix express an interest in saving the show. It stinks of easy free exposure to me. Well that's that then. Terra Nova is officially extinct

One source has claimed that the talks broke down because international buyers may have been concerned about the lack of mainstream television or cable network support for the show.

Nice excuse.

Synchronize is a tribute to the powerful effect movies can have on our imagination. This short film takes the viewer through the dream of a videostore clerk whose vision is formed by the movies he sees and hears.

Dutch film student Elise The crafted the distorted stream-of-consciousness scenario, which plops Harrison Ford in the same vision as Ghostbusters — each competing for attention in a 1980s dreamscape.

Friday was another community Q&A for The Old Republic.

Today's topics begin with a discussion about why some advanced classes, such as Commandos and Mercenaries, lack an interrupt. This wasn't an oversight, the devs revealed, but "a purposefully designed weakness in their ability arsenal" to keep them balanced in the game -- especially in PvP.

"Balance" was an answer to another issue as well, specifically the nerfs to some of the healing specs. Lead Combat Designer Georg Zoeller realized that folks were going to rail against it, but the team thought it was necessary: "I know trying to 'sell' a downwards adjustment (AKA nerf) to anyone affected is like selling the need for a tax increase to people. When you are on the receiving end of it, you're not going to be happy about it."

Other questions revolved around rage timers, looping the game's music, cross-faction communication within the same guild, and legacy system specifics.

The latest in the surge of Kickstarter-funded games is a title called The Banner Saga, to be developed by a three-man team called Stoic which worked on illustration, concept art, and combat programming for Star Wars: The Old Republic. The Banner Saga, should it reach its $100,000 goal, will be a role-playing and turn-based strategy game about Vikings, which is probably the most convincing sales pitch imaginable.

Stoic plans to make The Banner Saga DRM free, and will use crowdfunding to make the game the way they want it to be made. Additional funding past the goal will be put towards porting the title towards more platforms such as iOS, Kindle Fire, XBLA, PSN, and maybe the Vita. Localization to Europe and Japan are also possibilities, as well as general increases to the scope of the game.

The team aims to make The Banner Saga a fresh experience, with strategic combat that emphasizes tactics over grinding and brute force. The alpha battlefield looks chess-like, which will likely tie into the strategy of battles. Dialogue choices made in the game will have meaningful consequences and aim to further bond with the characters. The Banner Saga will also have a multiplayer game, although the team is focusing on single-player.

The team plans to utilize its two-thirds balance of artists to give the game the feel of playable concept art. Art Director Arnie Jorgensen cited animated film Sleeping Beauty as inspiration for the game’s nostalgic look. The Kickstarter campaign also packs some serious artistic heat in its pledge rewards. The $80 reward is a 24 x 36 inch poster, $100 is a very gorgeously designed t-shirt, $250 is an actual animation cel from the game, $600 is a 12 x 36 framed landscape, $1,200 is a 3-dimensional shadowbox, and $5,000 is the chance to become a rotoscoped and animated viking in the game. While the highest tiers are clearly for serious fans only, it only goes to show how important art design is to Stoic.

A free multiplayer version of The Banner Saga will be released this summer for PC and Mac, and the first part of the single player will be available for purchase soon after.
THE Queen was given a private screening of War Horse yesterday after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sang the film’s praises.
Director Steven Spielberg flew in for the special showing at Windsor Castle, where one of the plush state rooms was transformed into a cinema.
A giant projector screen was set up in the vast wood-panelled Waterloo Chamber, with surround sound and seating for about 100 people in luxury ­upholstered armchairs.
William and Kate returned from the glittering premiere on the eve of the Duchess’s 30th birthday in January giving it rave reviews but, despite it coming out months ago, the Queen has been too busy to see it.
The royal “premiere” was ­arranged so household staff could also enjoy the movie, with its ­director on hand to answer any questions about what went on behind the scenes.
A royal source said: “The Queen loves horses and is a keen supporter of the military so it was only natural that she should want to watch War Horse.”

The film, starring Benedict Cumberbatch (pictured above), Tom Hiddleston and Emily Watson is based on the children’s book by Michael Morpurgo about farmhand Albert, who tries to track down his beloved horse Joey after it is shipped away to serve in the First World War.
Acclaimed by critics, the film proved a hit at the box office, ­raking in £110million and was nominated for six Oscars and five Baftas.
Six hundred current and former members of the military and their families attended the star-studded premiere in London’s Leicester Square, where the royals’ co-star on the red carpet was the film’s equine lead, the chestnut colt that played Joey.
Afterwards the couple hosted a champagne reception at the Queen’s Gallery in Buckingham Palace for 100 selected guests including the director, cast ­members and wealthy donors who paid £10,000 each to attend. All proceeds went to the charitable foundation set up by Princes William and Harry, of which Kate is now also a patron.

Spielberg, 65, whose wife is the actress Kate Capshaw, later told how enthusiastic the royals had been about the movie and revealed how Kate’s tears had welled up during some of the scenes.
He said: “I was sitting next to her and all I know is at one point my wife, who was sitting to my right, right in front of my face she passed a Kleenex…
“I saw the Kleenex go across my face, arrive and stop but I didn’t want to intrude on her ­experience watching War Horse so I never glanced over. ­According to my peripheral vision her eyes were dabbed.”
Like the original 1982 book, the film focuses on the atrocious ­conditions horses were forced to endure during the Great War.
Between four and eight million perished on both sides and at times as many as 1,000 a day were arriving in France from Britain to replace those lost.
The Monarch is famously ­passionate about horses and has owned a number of thoroughbred racehorses.
Despite turning 86 next month, she still rides and last Easter was photographed with her grandchildren Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, during a hack through Windsor Great Park.

star wars lego official r2-d2 droid set
Lego and Star Wars fans often go hand in hand, which is why we're sure the imminent arrival of an official Lego Star Wars R2-D2 set will be welcome news for many a brick-stacking, droid-loving geek.
Wired spotted the 1ft tall droid over at, which states that the 2,100-piece set can be picked up for £150 when it hits shelves in May.
The fully assembled Lego R2-D2 droid features a retractable third leg as well as a cutting disc and interface arm, both of which are hidden behind a built-in door.
Check out the video of Artoo in action below and get saving. You know you want to.

The first official Doctor Who photograph of Jenna-Louise Coleman has been released.

Doctor Who: Jenna-Louise Coleman first look
The British actress, who is best known for her previous role as Jasmine in Emmerdale, was recently announced as the latest female sidekick for the Time Lord.

In the image - revealed on BBC America's Tumblr page - Coleman can be seen wearing a multi-coloured jumper and standing in front of the legendary TARDIS.

Coleman was born in Blackpool, Lancashire. She attended Arnold School in Blackpool where she was Head Girl and gained straight A's in her A-levels. Whilst discussing her role on Emmerdale, Coleman states that part of her regretted not having a conventional university experience stating "part of me feels sorry I'm missing that but I'm living the life I want." Whilst filming Emmerdale she initially shared a flat with actress Julia Mallam, who played Dawn Woods.
While at school Coleman was a member of a theatre company, 'In Yer Space' with whom she performed at the Edinburgh Festival in the play Crystal Clear. She won an award for her performance, whilst the play was also received favourably.

The actor revealed that he turned up to auditions for the Phantom Menace a little worse for wear.Ray Winstone

The actor revealed that he turned up to auditions for the Phantom Menace a little worse for wear.
Ray Winstone has revealed that he missed out on the chance to star in the Star Wars franchise after turning up drunk to auditions.
The hardman actor could have starred alongside Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor in The Phantom Menace, in the role of the father of the princess, but he turned up for the meeting with director George Lucas a little worse for wear.
Talking to Total Film, the actor said, "It didn't go well. Had words and that was that. But that's OK. I've worked for George since and he was fine. He didn't remember. Or if he did, he didn't take it to heart.
"I was up for the Princess' father, or something like that. I was p**sed (drunk) anyway. I'd been out all night and I turned up and he knew I was wrong for the part as soon as I walked in, but instead of saying that, he relayed the message to me through someone else and I took umbrage at that."
Winstone finally did work with Lucas on Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull 

A BURGLAR who stole more than £4,000 worth of goods from three houses in the space of two weeks has been sent to prison.
Christopher Spry, 44, of Gigant Street, Salisbury, broke into a house in Woodbury Yard on January 16 and stole jewellery, cash and watches to the value of £1,500.
On January 28 he stole 11 Star Wars Clone Wars figurines worth £550 from a house in North Street and the following day he broke into a house in Woodbury Lane and stole items, including a laptop and jewellery, worth £2,500.
Recorder Richard Onslow sentenced him to 12 months in prison when he appeared at Salisbury Crown Court on Friday.
DC Tom Ellerby of Wiltshire Police said after the sentencing: “Spry was caught as a result of swift movement from Salisbury’s priority crime team after inquiries.
“I hope the multiple victims of his burglaries receive a measure of closure now that he has been brought to justice. We will continue to target and bring to justice people who commit these offences. I would like to take this opportunity to remind people to secure their doors, windows and locks at all times and keep valued possessions out of the sight of opportunistic individuals.”

After the announcement that LEGO Minecraft was real, and that even a LEGO Lord of The Rings game could be on the cards, as well as the announcement that LEGO Batman 2 is coming, you could be forgiven for thinking that maybe LEGO are going all out with the gaming sphere.
It seems that the next project on the cards is a LEGO series of toys that are inspired by BioWare’s MMO gameStar Wars: The Old Republic – which is currently having a free to play weekend.
From the 28th July, UK fans can get their hands all over the plastic blocks and build themselves a Red Talon Starfighter, or a Fury Class Interceptor. The models are priced at £39.99 and £79.99 respectively.
These aren’t the first set of Star Wars LEGO to come to market, with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, The Clone Wars and sets based on both film trilogies being released.

With patch 1.2 on the horizon, most Star Wars: The Old Republic players have questions, which makes it a good thing that the game is still hosting a weekly community question-and-answer session to give players answers to those questions. This week, we've been granted a confirmation that more character slots are being planned, an assertion that new crafted items will still use existing high-end materials, and the promise that a "barber shop"-style feature is in the planning stages (even if it's not in 1.2).

That last answer leads into a discussion of how the development team prioritizes updates, the pace of those updates, and what players can expect as each update goes live. As outlined in the answer, the big question is how much work any given feature is expected to take, which has to be juggled so that big features are coming out regularly without forcing development to stagnate. That means that some features have to wait for future updates -- but it seems like the team is still well aware of these issues just the same.

George Lucas (left) and Colin Powell appeared together Tuesday at the Building a Grad Nation Summit at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel (Photo courtesy of America’s Promise Alliance).
"Star Wars" director George Lucas and former secretary of stateColin Powell are both education activists and appeared together Tuesday to conclude the Building a Grad Nation Summit at the MarriottWardman Park Hotel. Before getting to the meat of his speech, Powell, a founding chairman of the America's Promise Alliance, the event's sponsor, had some business to attend to.
He would like a lightsaber, thank you very much.
Powell began by mentioning, fondly, a trip he once took to visit Lucas atSkywalker Ranch. "This is where all this creative geniuses are dark rooms," Powell laughed. "It was back there where I saw them playing with the lightsabers, do you remember the lightsabers?...and it was so fascinating to have these lightsabers displayed for me."
Then Powell went in for the kill. "In fact, this morning I went online to see if you could buy a light saber and you can, and it's beautiful, but it was $286," he said. "I said to myself, 'I know George, he'll give me one.' Where is it George? No?"
Alas, no light saber for Powell, but Lucas did tell the audience what inspired him to form Edutopia, The George Lucas Educational Foundation, which culls the best teaching methods from around the country and disseminates them nationally.
"I was at a city school...and I didn't learn much and I didn't like it much and I didn't get good grades, it didn't fit me and it didn't fit the way I think," Lucas said. That all changed when he went to junior college. "[I] went on to find out that, low and behold, something impossible to believe — they actually teach you how to make movies in school," he explained. "I found my passion and took off like a rocket."

Ken Dobson of Chiseldon with the distinctive markings he found in a log he was cutting up

PENSIONER Ken Dobson got an extra-tree-restrial shock when he was cutting wood at the weekend.

Ken, who is in his 70s and lives with wife Janet in Chiseldon, couldn’t quite believe his eyes when he blew off sawdust and saw the face of 80s movie phenomenon ET emerge from beneath.

The face is almost identical to that of the star from the popular Steven Spielberg film, whose catchphrase “ET phone home” captured the hearts of movie-goers around the world.

Those kind people at The Old Republic have decided to do ANOTHER free weekend pass this weekend.  If you haven't tried TOR yet then now's your chance.  Here's what they have to say

Over the last weekend, people had the opportunity to take part in the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Weekend Pass Free* Trial. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and we are incredibly grateful to everyone who took part. However, we also understand that not everyone has had the opportunity to play the game. To that end, we are excited to announce that individuals who did not take part in the first Weekend Pass Free Trial will have another opportunity to live out their very own Star Wars™ saga, for free, with the second Star Wars: The Old Republic Weekend Pass Free Trial! Participants in the previous Weekend Pass Free Trial and any other free trials are not eligible for this upcoming Weekend Pass Free Trial period.

Like with the first Weekend Pass Free Trial, players will be able to experience the opening chapter of each of the eight character classes in the game. You will have the opportunity to explore each class’s Origin World, and may even have the chance to visit their faction’s Capital World. In addition, Weekend Pass Free Trial players will have the chance to face off against other players in PvP Warzones, or join with their friends to play through an early faction-specific Flashpoint.

The Weekend Pass Free Trial opens Thursday, March 22nd at 12:01AM CDT / 5:01AM GMT and ends on Monday, March 26th at 2:00AM CDT / 7:00AM GMT. To learn more, visit and come back on March 22th to create your account, download the game, and begin your free trial! Some in-game restrictions apply. Visit the Weekend Pass Free Trial FAQ for more details.

A North East creative firm are set to see their work go global, when their designs for the front cover and online trailer for the latest series of Star Wars novels are finally unveiled.

Later this month Lucasfilms Ltd is due to release ‘Apocalypse’ , which will signal the end of a four year illustrations project for Keltie Cochrane, who designed the covers for all nine novels in the series, as well as the animated trailer.

Keltie Cochrane were headhunted to pitch for the design by Random House New York and Lucasfilm Ltd in San Fransisco, and were eventually chosen for their unique approach and innovative ideas.

Keltie Cochrane creative director Ian Keltie said: “We are very privileged to have worked with Star Wars; it’s been a dream come true.

“The brand being so huge worldwide has been a fantastic profile builder, however it has also meant there was an immense amount of pressure on us to deliver something that the dedicated fans would appreciate.

By not taking the traditional sci-fi art approach which fans have previously been used to, the firm was quickly able to gain the support of Lucasfilm Ltd, who were keen to take the novels in a new direction.

Keltie continued: “Having received some wonderful feedback from people all around the world who have followed the storylines of Star Wars for the past 30 years, I really couldn’t ask for a greater feeling of satisfaction in my job.

“A hidden gem to the project was that in order to create the artwork I was given the passwords to the Star Wars image vault which is full of the original photography and behind the scenes imagery, which I had to promise to never share – I felt honoured to be part of a privileged few with something that was so special to so many people.”

During the project, Ian and his colleagues were given the opportunity to visit Lucasfilms in San Fransisco and see original costumes, props and artwork from Star Wars.

Proudly describing the project as “an overwhelming experience” Ian concluded: “We are really looking  forward to the unveiling of the final book and hope it helps to start a new chapter for us with more exciting projects in the future.”
