Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Finalizer uses the same crystals as lightsabers to power its weapons.

Image
StarWars.com has released some really interesting information on the "Finalizer", the massive Star Destroyer like ship seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This new ship was commanded by General Hux and Kylo Ren throughout the film.

The information that was released involves the weapons located on the Finalizer and will excite fans and make them look at the items in a new way.
"The powerful flagship shared by General Hux and Kylo Ren, the dagger-shaped Finalizer is nearly twice the length of an Imperial-era Star Destroyer. The first of the new Resurgent class constructed in violation of treaties with the New Republic, the Finalizer’s heavy weapons are augmented by two starfighter wings, a hundred assault craft and a full legion of stormtroopers. Her turbolasers are more powerful and faster to recharge than Imperial-era weapons, a product of kyber crystals harvested in the Unknown Regions." The shocking piece of information here is that the turbolasers are powered…

See all the Easter eggs and references in the second Deadpool trailer.

Image
Mr Sunday Movies dives into the second Deadpool trailer that was released yesterday and delivers all the Easter eggs and references that he could find. There were a few things that I missed when I watched the trailer so this video helped out a lot.
"Deadpool Trailer 2 Easter Eggs, References and Things Missed! With new red band and green band trailers released let’s take a look at some of the nods to the comics, the X-Men films and other Marvel Easter Eggs that hint at surprise cameo's.  So what kind of Easter Eggs are we talking here? There’s quite a bit of of stuff relating to the Weapon X Program, a mutant experimentation initiative that has given us some of the most popular comic book characters of all time, including Wolverine.  And speaking off, details leading up to this trailer lead me to believe Hugh Jackman will make a small appearance in the film on top of the two X-Men we see in the film, Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Colossus, acting as a mentor for the younger …

New documentary dissects what makes Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films so good.

Image
Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films may get a bad rap because of the third film but in my opinion the first two were absolutely great. Raimi brought us the superhero films that we had been waiting for for a long time way before Marvel Studios started pumping out their films.

A new documentary has been released by "Moviebob" that focuses on the first two Spider-Man films and dissects just why they are actually that good. This video is a part of his "Really That Good" series and fans out there should really give it a chance and check out it.
"Welcome to a NEW kind of film-criticism series, built around the radical premise that just because "everyone knows" a movie is a classic doesn't mean it stops being worth a deeper look.  Superheroes dominate the blockbuster landscape now, but it wasn't long ago that no one knew just how big they could get - until Sam Raimi's groundbreaking SPIDER-MAN and it's equally-impressive sequel showed Hollywoo…

New photos of Colossus from the upcoming Deadpool film reveal a new actor taking the role.

Image
It appears as though Serbian actor Stefan Kapicic has taken over the role of Colossus at the last minute in the upcoming Deadpool film and he looks amazing! Two new photos have been released by Entertainment Weekly along with a great info with Kapicic.

Answering a question about whether he performed motion capture for the character of Colossus as well as lending him his voice, Kapicic stated,
"Tim Miller’s idea of Colossus was to be bigger and stronger than everyone else, so for the motion capture they needed an extremely tall man. I’m 6-foot-4, but he wanted Colossus to be over 7 feet, so they used a stunt double to recreate his height, and he did very good job there. Tim also wanted Colossus to sound as close as possible to the comic book character’s background, so he had me to come in, since my voice was what he envisioned for Colossus, who has an authentic Russian accent. My character’s voice gives him the past history as Piotr Rasputin once you hear him speak. This made him…

JJ Abrams talks about why Kylo Ren idolizes Darth Vader.

Image
*Spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens*

Trailers and advertisements for Star Wars: The Force Awakens didn't hide the fact that the film's new villain Kylo Ren idolized Darth Vader but the film itself doesn't dive too deep into why that idolization is there.

Director J.J. Abrams spoke with IGN and delivered an explanation for this that fans may be interested to hear.
"“Kylo Ren idolizes Darth Vader, not Anakin Skywalker. He idolizes what Vader represents and what Vader was trying to do. And the idea that Vader didn’t succeed, if you look at it from Ren’s point of view, he was seduced by the enemy and failed because of that seduction. So the idea is that Ren wants to complete the thing that Vader started.”" In the film it is revealed that Kylo Ren is really Ben Solo, Han and Leia's son and Darth Vader's grandson. Abrams takes a moment to talk about how Ben Solo, who was training under his uncle, Luke Skywalker, wound up turning to the Dark Side of the …

See every Easter egg and reference in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Image
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is absolutely dominating at the box office and fans are loving it. One of the things that fans usually love are Easter eggs and reference in a film. However, did JJ Abrams pack a little too many into The Force Awakens? Mr Sunday Movies attempts to answer that question with his new Easter eggs and references video for the film and there are a lot.
"All the Easter Eggs, references and cameos from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’re talking Easter Eggs and nods to the original Star Wars Trilogy, the prequel trilogy, JJ Abrams tropes and some cameos you wouldn’t believe (that you’ll probably believe).  A lot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens pulls directly from A New Hope including the Starkiller super weapon being pretty much a bigger Death Star, Jedi mind tricks and a hero stranded on a desert planet to just name a few. Then we get into how Finn’s Stormtrooper number harkens back to Princess Leia’s imprisonment, limb loss and how a stack of original Ralph…

JJ Abrams explains why Kylo Ren had to commit that devastating act in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

*SPOILERS AHEAD for Star Wars: The Force Awakens*

-----------------------

------------------------------------

Star Wars: The Force Awakens contains one of the most gut wrenching moments in the Star Wars franchise. During a confrontation between Han Solo and Kylo Ren (who turn out to be father and son), Kylo embraces the dark side of the Force and kills Han. It was not the death that Han deserved as such an iconic character in the franchise but it is what JJ Abrams gave to fans. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly director JJ Abrams and co-writers Lawrence Kasdan and Michael Arndt spoke about why it was important for Kylo to do this and why it was important for Han Solo's story.
"“Star Wars had the greatest villain in cinema history. So, how you bring a new villain into that world is a very tricky thing,” Abrams told the crowd. “We knew we needed to do something f—king bold. The only reason why Kylo Ren has any hope of being a worthy successor is be…
