Star Wars Top 10 - Monsters! [video]

"In this installment of the 10, we’re picking the best creatures of Star Wars, from Tatooine terrors to Hoth horrors.

For this list, we're focusing on monsters from the Star Wars films and Star Wars: The Clone Wars only, ranking them on design, impact, and scare factor."

Top 10 Star Wars monsters:
"10. Nexu - Kicking off our list is the Nexu: a hideous mix of feline and rodent. This smaller, quicker, more animal-like creature brings an unnerving eye-level element to Star Wars monsters. Pro-tip: avoid close-encounters.

9. Dianoga - The first real creature seen in a Star Wars movie, the dianoga is a slimy, tentacled menace with a taste for Jedi trainees. The dianoga’s ability to stay hidden makes it even more frightening: You know it’s lurking, watching, and waiting for the perfect moment to strike.

8. Brain Worm - If you can’t tell by its name, the brain worm is the hands down winner in the creepy department. This slithering parasite enters a host through the nasal passage and then takes control of their mind and body. Think that’s bad? You don’t want to see how it leaves.

7. Sando Aqua Monster - The sando aqua monster is one of the biggest creatures in the galaxy, and a fierce predator. Featuring a massive tail, two strong arms, and a big, big mouth, it’s completely awe-inspiring.

6. Acklay - A huge, snarling, crab-like thing, the acklay has sharp claws, pointed fangs, and is rather…ill-tempered. If you’re ever battling one, it’s best to use a weapon other than a pike. You might make it angry.

5. Space Slug - The aptly-named Space Slug illustrates the danger-is-everywhere element of Star Wars, and how once you think you’re safe, you’ve probably just run into — literally, in this case -- a much bigger problem.

4. Sarlacc - From its hideous teeth-lined ridges to its sickening squeals to other…unsavory…qualities, there’s no creature in the galaxy like the Sarlacc. Located in the deserts of Tatooine, the Sarlacc waits for prey to cross its path -- or for someone to get on Jabba’s bad side.

3. Zillo Beast - With a name that recalls a very famous movie monster, the Zillo Beast is a huge creature accidentally unleashed during a Clone Wars battle. While there’s a tragic element to the Zillo Beast and its movements are graceful, it is still awesomely powerful and can do a lot of damage.

2. Wampa - Quiet. Strong. Deadly. The wampa, a hulking behemoth covered in white fur, stalks the snowy Hoth landscape looking for prey -- and eats multiple-course meals. If your tauntaun smells something, head in the other direction. Fast.

1. Rancor - It feasts on Twi’lek dancers and Gammorrean Guards. Its roar is deafening. And it’s Jabba the Hutt’s favorite pet. Ranking number one on our list is the rancor, the most famous of all Star Wars monsters, and a classic movie monster in its own right. The rancor’s design is a total triumph -- familiar yet uniquely Star Wars at the same time -- and simultaneously impressive and horrifying. If there’s one place in a galaxy far, far away that we don’t want to visit, it’s the rancor pit -- and that’s why we think the rancor is the best Star Wars monster."

Leaked clip from Marvel event shows an argument from Avengers: Age of Ultron between Captain America and Iron Man that could lead to Civil War! [video]

It appears that a lot more was shown at the Marvel mystery event than we first initially thought. We know that Marvel released names and dates of all nine Phase 3 films, concept art and info on Black Panther, an official synopsis for the television series Agent Carter, and what Thanos wearing the Infinity Gauntlet looks like. Also, you can watch the announcement of the nine films as well as the Avengers: Infinity War promo trailer here.

An all new, never before seen clip was shown from Avengers: Age of Ultron that shows a discussion turned argument between Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, and Tony Stark, aka Iron Man!

I've posted the video below but please be warned that this is an unreleased clip and will contain spoilers for the film Avengers: Age of Ultron. If you do not want to be spoiled stop reading here.





We learn several important things from this clip.

  • Thor has gone AWOL (absent without official leave). 
  • Scarlet Witch shows each of the Avengers a vision that is meant to weaken their resolve by showing them something dark. However, it may not have worked on Captain America.
  • Tony Stark and Bruce Banner, aka Hulk, were working on something that would possibly end the need for the team. Could this have been Ultron? 
  • Iron Man does not trust Captain America and the feeling goes both ways. Cap even ripped a log in half with his bare hands out of frustration!
And most importantly:
  • Listen to the dialog at the end of the clip. The battle lines have officially been drawn that will lead to Captain America: Civil War!
What do you think about this clip? Is this the beginning of the Civil War tension? What do you think about this argument? How about Cap ripping that log in half?! I cannot wait for this film and to see how this argument plays out!

Entertainment Weekly offers a first look at Terminator: Genisys with Game of Throne's Emilia Clark and Doctor Who's Matt Smith!

Entertainment Weekly has just released the two covers for their next magazine issue and it features a first look at the upcoming film Terminator: Genisys. The covers feature Emilia Clark (Game of Thrones) as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney (Spartacus) as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) as John Connor, and Matt Smith (Doctor Who).

Film synopsis:
"The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected."
 Further plot points on the story. *Spoilers*
"Sarah Connor isn’t the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton’s steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991’s T2. Rather, the mother of humanity’s messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she’s been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger’s Terminator—an older T-800 she calls “Pops”—who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who’s great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion.
“Since she was 9 years old, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen,” says Ellison. “But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, ‘That’s not what I want to do.’ It’s her decision that drives the story in a very different direction.”"
Wow. That is a pretty interesting twist! Fans of the original series may be able to rest calmly however as former Doctor Who star Matt Smith says:
"“It’s like going on tour again if you’re Pink Floyd—the audience always wants to hear some of the old songs,” says Matt Smith, the former Doctor Who star who plays a close ally of John Connor. “There are enough nods to the past that people will feel satisfied.”"
I have to admit that I was not excited about this film but I may want to check it out. If only for curiosity's sake. How do you think the story sounds?

An all new, and amazing, Star Wars book an been written by author Brandon Alinger titled Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy that is bound to get every Star Wars fan and Star Wars cosplayer excited!

Along with photos of the costumes there is concept art and some fantastic information on them. This is truly the most thorough look at the costumes to date.

Below you can watch a trailer for the book that shows some footage of the costumes being photographed and hear Brandon Alinger talk about what went into making the book.
"Get a behind-the-scenes look at Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy in this special trailer, as author Brandon Alinger visits the Lucasfilm Archives at Skywalker Ranch to research and photograph actual outfits and gear used in the classic films. 
The book features detailed histories and information on costumes for both major and minor characters, from Darth Vader to Tusken Raiders. Perhaps most significantly, however, are the photographs included. “They’re shooting things that have never been photographed in this way before,” Alinger says. As a result, the tome reveals exciting new visual details, and tells the story of how costume pieces were made and fit together to create the iconic costumes of a galaxy far, far away."

This is a book that I am definitely interested in picking up! How about you?
