Star Wars Day: And Then There Were Seven

Star Wars The Force Awakens Title Card

I have had a tough time this year coming up with a topic for this most important date, May The 4th, aka Star Wars Day. So I’m going to just speak from the heart about the tragedy that befell my family thanks to my own selfishness and thoughtlessness. Beware, for this could happen to you, too!

A year ago, I wrote a piece about how my daughter had recently discovered and become enamored with Star Wars, or at least the six films we had at that time. I fixated, yes I chose that word correctly, on her love of the franchise and how I felt vindicated in raising this amazing little mini-me. I spoke longingly of that which once was and my hopes of what might be. All of this happened over half a year before the new film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, came to theaters near us all. I wrote how I respected creator George Lucas for his vision, if not for his revisions. I did all of this before I saw the new film. The new film that Disney created.

Star Wars Day May the 4th package

Greetings, and Happy Star Wars Day to you all.

Over the years, “May the 4th” has taken on a life of its own. What began as a pun on the famous Star Wars quote “May The Force be with you,” has now become a global holiday that has spilled over into non-geek sectors. Every major retailer is offering deals in honor of this observance, and even people who aren’t mega-fans of the franchise were on social media bright and early this morning to wish others a “Happy Star Wars Day.”

Chris Miller Teases ‘Star Wars: Han Solo’ Film With Photo Of Signature Weapon

Star Wars Han Solo and Chewbacca Image

There are some things you can count on Han Solo having with him at all times: a vest, charm, wit, and of course let’s not forget his trusty blaster. The legendary Star Wars character will be getting his own film as a part of the Star Wars Anthology Films or what some may know right now as the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Anthology Film. Directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the solo film has yet to find a lead actor to play the pilot of the Millennium Falcon, “the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.”

Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) is the current frontrunner, with Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction) and Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Eddie The Eagle) also in consideration. Considering today is May 4, otherwise known as Star Wars Day, aside from the usual celebrations, there are a couple of teases that are being dropped here and there, and one of them has just been dropped on Twitter by Chris Miller, who posted an image of Solo’s signature weapon with an interesting hashtag. Check it out here below.

Book Review: The Map of Bones by Francesca Haig
Olympus Athens   |  @   |  

Map of Bones Header

The Map of Bones (The Fire Sermon #2)
Hardcover | Kindle Edition
Written by Francesca Haig
Gallery Books
Release Date: May 3rd, 2016

In the dystopian future, mankind turned his Earth to ash. Once the radiation had dissipated, civilization began to multiply once again. The human body found its Darwinian way to ensure survival. How? Every birth resulted in twins – one, a perfect specimen, better than any humans who had come before. The other had a deformity – some obvious and grotesque, and some hidden. It is now a world of Alphas and Omegas. The perfect Alphas could reproduce (twins, always), and the Omegas were barren. And the biggest catch of them all? If one twin died, so did the other. Their mortality was inexorably tied together. Cass is an Omega psychic who wants to bring down her twin Zach and the Alpha council, before they destroy what’s left of the Omegas and of Earth. Francesca Haig‘s new novel, The Map of Bones, is the 2nd installment of this incredibly unique premise.

More below.

The Russo Brothers Confirm ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Films Will Be Retitled

Avengers: Infinity War Title Card

In 2014, Marvel made a huge announcement about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe saying that Phase 3 would end with a two-part Avengers film appropriately titled Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Part II. Most believed that the project was following the tradition of closing trilogies being split into two films. With the amount of characters involved throughout the entire three phases, it would probably be best to split it into two films so that the characters got their justified screen times. Now with the Captain America: Civil War press tour pretty much completed, The Russo Brothers are talking about Avengers: Infinity War, and have dropped one very revealing detail.

According to them, the Part I and Part II titles are “misleading.” More on the story here below.

‘The Blues Brothers’ Animated Series May Not Be As Bad As You Think
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

The Blues Brothers header

What started out as a sketch on Saturday Night Live, The Blues Brothers became one of the best comedies to feature rhythm and blues musical acts. Starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as “Joliet” Jake and Elwood Blues, respectively, the 1980 film had the two characters in a tale of redemption where they embark on “a mission from God” to save from foreclosure the Catholic orphanage in which they were raised.

Unfortunately, John Belushi died in 1982, but somehow a sequel was developed and released in 1998. Despite having the creative and performing core group return, the sequel never quite lived up to expectations and turned out to be a commercial and critical failure.

However, Aykroyd is going to develop an animated series based on the two films. But it is not as bad as it sounds thanks in part to the creative team that is involved. More on the story below.
