STAR WARS TRAILER.

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY REACTS TO THE STAR WARS TRAILER.

Same, Matt. Same.

In non-Star Wars news:

Ayn Rand’s Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows (The Toast)

“F— That F—er”: Hollywood Sounds Off, Ranks New York’s Top Film Critics in Anonymous Survey (The Hollywood Reporter)

Steven Lloyd Wilson at Pajiba has a great breakdown of the recent Hugo Awards nonsense.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw has joined the cast of Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast as the feather duster Plumette. Ian McKellen Tweeted about the film’s first table read, which means things are ramping up… but conspicuously absent from the cast list is someone to play Lumiere. I’m not bothered. Thawing Jerry Orbach from his cryogenic deep freeze, where he’s chilling (haha) alongside Papa Walt, takes time.

Netflix makes Daredevil available to visually impaired with audio descriptions. With the Tribeca Film Festival going on I have kind of a busy weekend, and that’s great! Because I love Tribeca and I love movies. But part of me really wants to lock myself in my apartment and not venture outside until I’ve finished Daredevil. With everything else that’s going on, I’ve managed less than one episode a day over the last week. My binge watching skills need some work. (Entertainment Weekly)

Archaeologists Unearth 18th Century Dildo (Jezebel)

Sony Pictures Japan is planning a PG-12 cut of Chappie (which I really liked) without director Neill Blomkamp’s approval. Sony, don’t. That’s Harvey Weinstein shit. (Indiewire)
