The Bearded Trio - A Statement On The New Trailer And Fans #ThankYouGeorgeLucas @StarWars

I love the new trailer for The Force Awakens.  Its everything I wanted it to be and more.  It seems J.J. Abrams and the talented crew will bring the magic of Star Wars back to the silver screen since Revenge of the Sith or technically in my opinion since the theatrical release of The Clone Wars.

There is a sting in the tale with the new trailer and the positive vibes that go with it and that's the inevitable George Lucas bashing.  Over the last few days I've seen many remarks running down the STAR WARS CREATOR on Twitter and other social media sites.  Statements like 'this is how it should be done George' and 'Star Wars can be done right in the right hands.'

I've even seen a fan-made 'George Lucas special edition' version of the new trailer.  I know this is a joke and should be taken as such but when you see so many positive remarks regarding the new trailer and in the mix 'fans' bashing the STAR WARS CREATOR I can't help but feel it&#…

This Fans Reaction To Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer Is The Best Yet

We all watched the trailer for Star Wars The Force Awakens but did you have the same reaction as this fan?  I love this video.  This makes me smile and shows the joy of being a Star Wars fan.  Wait for the Wookiee impression when he sees the Falcon.

Jurassic World Trailer Watched By 5 Million In 48 Hours. 34 Million Views On Youtube To Date.

Lets bring a bit of balance to the Force and talk about that other movie trailer that was released this week, Jurassic World.  For those of you who haven't seen it yet you can view it below but I'm guessing not many have missed it judging by this stat.  5 million viewers watched the trailer in just 48 hours!  That's impressive.  Most impressive.  Also 34 million views and climbing on Universal Pictures official Youtube channel.

I have a feeling though that Star Wars The Force Awakens will beat that judging by the fact it was trending for the entire day.  Although Jurassic World has definitely done well and a good decision by Universal for bringing the trailer forward by a couple of days.

Also #JurassicWorld started trending again worldwide when The Force Awakens trailer was released.  These two movies are going to be huge.

Fan Makes Lego Version Of Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer

He stayed up until 4am but talented Star Wars fan, Snooperking from Youtube showed the determination of fans once they put their mind to it.  In an incredible short amount of time and less than 24 hours after the Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer is released we get a Lego version.

Check it out.
this took forever.... hence the upload at 4:00 AM im excited for the movie ha ha
I had nothing to do yesterday so I started once the trailer came out so i built the Falcon, The X-Wing, The speeder bike thingy, a mini tie fighter, tried to build all the sets, and get all my minifigures put together... then just filming took forever especially the the special effects... i tried stop motion in front of the green screen and that was hard and by this time it was 3am so like more than 12 hours (i took a 3 hour break somewhere) and then finally gave up and used sewing string for the X-Wing and just kind of moved my camera around the falcon, i wasn't as happy with the falcon shot but i cant work …

Jurassic World's Irrfan Khan Reveals He's In Talks With Spielberg For Another Project

Irrfan Khan is about to take the silver screen by storm when Jurassic World is released next year and it seems Steven Spielberg wants him for another project.  In a recent interview he reveals he's in talks with the director and talks about the rumours about his involvement in the Marvel universe.

What is the status of your next international film?
I will be travelling to promote the film soon. I am also in talks for another project with Spielberg.
It is said that you are going to be part of the Marvel Universe.
There are so many rumours… I don’t want to comment on anything till I confirm anything myself. I don’t want to talk about it because if things don’t go as planned, then a lot of negativity starts to spread.

Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer To Be Shown Online. Lucasfilm To Break The Internet.

The official Star Wars Twitter feed tweeted something today that will hopefully calm down a lot of disgruntled fans over the showing of the latest trailer for The Force Awakens this Friday.

Fans were annoyed at learning initially that the trailer for the new Star Wars movie set to hit screens December 2015 was only going to be shown at a select few cinemas in the US causing some fans to contemplate driving hundreds of miles just to watch an 88 second trailer.

Now, thankfully that strategy has changed thanks to the tweet below:

The Force is with you on #BlackFriday when #TheForceAwakens teaser hits @iTunesTrailers.
— Star Wars (@starwars) November 26, 2014

In fact if you head over to the website for Itunes Trailers you will see they have already put a little logo up showing the trailer coming this Friday (pictured above.)  Could Lucasfilm and Disney break the Internet? Have they done stress tests? Maybe that was their concern all along. We shall see.
