Star Wars: The Force Awakens Han Solo and Chewie

Over the weekend Star Wars: The Force Awakens broke a couple of records, and you might have already heard, including Jurassic World‘s all-time biggest domestic opening weekend record.

Because Disney-owned Marvel was cool enough to congratulate Universal Pictures on breaking the record earlier this year, topping previous record-holder Marvel’s The Avengers, it seemed only fair that Universal return the favor. And that’s exactly what they’ve done. Just as Marvel tweeted out a congratulatory image of Chris Pratt riding a Tyrannosaurus rex holding Thor’s hammer Mjolnir in front of the Avengers team, Frank Marshall has tweeted out an image of the T-rex presenting droid BB-8 with a medal.

You can check out the congratulations image below.

David Fincher almost directed Star Wars Episode VII

Before J.J. Abrams got the gig to direct Star Wars: Episode VII, there were many other directors on the rumored short list, from Brad Bird, Andrew Stanton, and Jon Favreau to Zack Snyder, Joss Whedon, and Guillermo Del Toro. Fan speculation and the Internet only fueled the rumor mill. Even Rian Johnson was one of the frontrunners, that is, until he got the job to direct Episode VIII and Episode IX. There were so many names, but Disney ultimately decided to let Abrams direct, with Johnson directing the final two episodes of the trilogy.

Now that Abrams is already months into production for Episode VII‘s December 2015 release, Gone Girl‘s David Fincher is talking about how he was close to directing the highly anticipated sequel. Hit the jump to see what he had to say about not accepting the offer to direct Episode VII.

Star Wars: A New Hope Stormtroopers

About this time last month, we started to see some revealing new concept images of Han Solo and the starships of J.J. AbramsStar Wars: Episode VII. We also saw that the Stormtroopers would look slightly different than the standard ones we saw in episodes IVVI. Leaked images from the sky above have also hit the web. Then there was the Omaze online charity campaign, where we saw our first look at the new X-Wing and practical effects. And if that wasn’t enough to get you excited, Bad Robot is engaging in a playful Twitter war with Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

But despite the Omaze campaign and the leaked images, we still don’t know much about the film. We do know that the vital characters from the original will return to reprise their roles. But as to what will cause a disturbance in the force this time, that remains to be seen. Until then, we will be getting more leaked images. A new set of leaked concept art has just hit the web, and it shows that the stormtroopers could be sporting a sleek chrome look. In fact they are being called Chrome Troopers. Hit the jump to check it out.

Darth Vader In The Death Star

Director J.J. Abrams has made it a hobby to leave little nods and hints in images and videos he’s posted on the Bad Robot Twitter feed, that may or may not indicate things we might see in Star Wars: Episode VII.

In one of the latest images posted—a simple handwritten note making a joke about the new watch Apple just announced recently—Star Wars fans will recognize a very familiar pattern in the background.
