#TheForceAwakens: Character Names Revealed via Trading Cards

With the teaser trailer still fresh in our collective minds, and beyond a myriad of memes, parodies and fanart since then, comes the REVEAL of some of the film characters' NAMES via "trading cards"? How awesome is that?

Entertainment Weekly has the exclusives, which features a series of images presented like a set of "vintage" trading cards (ala "Topps"), with the following numbers (of which director J.J. Abrams alluded to the numbers themselves being "significant"):

• #11 — BB-8 on the move

• #53 — Poe Dameron in his X-Wing

• #67 — Kylo Ren ignites his Lightsaber

• #74 — Rey on her Speeder

• #76 — Finn on the run

• #81 — Stormtroopers prepare for battle

• #88 — X-Wings in formation

• #96 — The Millennium Falcon

How highly anticipated a film can be, with only a 88-second teaser revealed thus far … fascinating … nevertheless, I imagine a flurry of google-searches with the names "BB-8", "Poe Dameron" (Oscar Isaac), "Kylo Ren" (???), "Rey" (Daisy Ridley) and "Finn" (John Boyega), for the foreseeable future, until the film premieres December 18th, 2015 … #MayTheForceAwakenYou :)

"My World Is Fire And Blood" - Trailer for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD

It's a wondrous thing; how my excitement for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD was at the peak of pine-tingling anticipation when the teaser was unveiled circa San Diego Comic Con, but interest has since dipped tremendously immediately viewing this new 2 and a half minute trailer for the George Miller-directed feature film "reboot", featuring Tom Hardy in the role Mel Gibson made his own. Tough shoes to fill, I am sure. But of course, that is just my own personal "attention span" waning … other folks might feel differently, perhaps?

My take-away for this trailer: "Everything is dependent on oil", stated the newscast narration, and we see a whole lot of gasoline explosions from crashed vehicles, innit? But then again, Max did say: "My World Is Fire And Blood" …

LE PETIT PRINCE: (French) Trailer & Teaser Poster

WHAT-IS: "The Little Prince (French: Le Petit Prince), is an upcoming French 3D computer animated fantasy film based on the 1943 novel The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The film is directed by Mark Osborne and the script is written by Irena Brignull. Leonardo DiCaprio is the executive producer of the film. The film stars Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Rachel McAdams and Jeff Bridges. The film will be released in France on 7 October 2015." (Wikipedia)
Featured above is the French edition trailer, while below is the French teaser poster. Looks to be fun, and a long time coming too, IMHO!

"The Little Prince (French: Le Petit Prince; French pronunciation: ​[lə.pə.tiˈpʁɛ̃s]), first published in 1943, is a novella and the most famous work of the French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900–1944).

The novella is both the most-read and most-translated book in the French language, and was voted the best book of the 20th century in France. Translated into more than 250 languages and dialects (as well as braille), selling nearly two million copies annually with sales totalling over 140 million copies worldwide, it has become one of the best-selling books ever published."

Official Trailer for "Terminator Genisys"

I have nothing "bad" I'd like to mention about seeing the trailer for "Terminator Genisys". I do not even need to state "reserve judgment". I just want to hold unto the excitement and breathelessness I felt while watching the above video, and hope to be entertained by the movie when it premieres.

The joy of discovery with the first film. The epicness of Judgement Day forever etched in my internal "favourite movies"-list. The gnawing itch that which was the Rise of the Machines. The "huh" of Salvation. I take it all in. They make my viewing landscape of the franchise that much ... "richer" ... and in a warped way, I want to be "enriched" further, even if it might mean via the greyed hairs of of an "old" Terminator hahaha

"Terminator Genisys" premiers July 2015.

STORY: "The year is 2029. John Connor, leader of the resistance continues the war against the machines. At the Los Angeles offensive, John's fears of the unknown future begin to emerge when TECOM spies reveal a new plot by SkyNet that will attack him from both fronts; past and future, and will ultimately change warfare forever." (IMDb)


And The 24th James Bond Film is titled: "SPECTRE"

And the title of the 24th "James Bond" 007 movie is: "SPECTRE", with Daniel Craig reprising his role as "James Bond", while Sam Mendes (who did "Skyfall") directs. The following cast has also been announced:

Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser
Andrew Scott as Denbigh
David Bautista as Mr Hinx
Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra
Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann

"Spectre is the fictional terrorist organization introduced in the novel Thunderball, and represented on screen beginning in Dr. No.

The name stands for SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. The organization’s leader is Ernst Stavro Blofeld — the guy with the white cat who has been played by a few different actors over the years. A messy rights battle kept Blofeld and Spectre out of Bond films for many years. That issue was set right last year, clearing a path for their return to Bond films produced by EON Productions.

Principal photography for Spectre begins Monday. The shoot is expected to hit London, Italy, Morocco, Mexico, and Austria. Spectre opens November 6, 2015."

"Suicide Squad" Casting Update

Jared Leto – The Joker
Will Smith – Deadshot
Tom Hardy – Rick Flag
Margot Robbie – Harley Quinn
Jai Courtney – Boomerang
Cara Delevingne – Enchantress

What? No "Cat Man"? Hey, I Like Cat Man, okay? :)

This is the reported cast for Warner Bros' full length feature film "SUICIDE SQUAD", to be directed by David Ayer and will begin shooting next April in Toronto, according to Variety.

"Villains" take center stage in this DC comicbook (Codenamed "Task Force X") to silver screen outing, and just the cast alone gives me an excited chill down my spines for the sheer possibilities, even over "Batman v Superman", but hey, that's just my personal reference. Me? Ima thinking how awesome the characters'll be made toys - especially via Hot Toys - without having to even see the costumes designs! LOL
"Based on the DC comicbook, the story centers on the team of supervillains who are given a chance at redemption by the government. The catch: Their mission will probably kill them all."
All Comicbook Character Images in Montage above are fanarts by the following folks (linked to uncropped images):
