    The best part was his Woody Allen impression.

    Haha man that’s crazy! People literally bled, burned, & broke to make Star Wars.

    There you go! The guy has a broken back and wears a brace for months, but no one is the wiser – JJ knows how to keep a secret!
    Prepare to be surprised when TFA comes out.

    JJ breaks his back and we’re still siinging the praises of how great practical effects are? Some people are so dense.

    that ankle injury sounds pretty bad!

  • July 31, 2015 at 9:35 pm

    Likely an avulsion fracture of the L4 Spinous process (where the muscle pulls so hard it pulls a piece of the bone off, or a compression fracture that (partially) flattens the bone.

    A reminder: From the SW7N Cantina rules:

    5- “CRITICISM” vs. “BASHING” – This is a STAR WARS website by the fans for the fans. It is presumed you are a Star Wars fan, and that like all Star Wars fans you have aspects of the series that you really like, and other aspects of it that you might not like. While thoughtful criticism is part of healthy discourse, there is a fine line between criticism and outright bashing. When criticism becomes inflammatory, insulting and disrespectful to other fans, it impinges upon their right to discuss and express their enjoyment of everything Star Wars. This is, of course, unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

    This site is intended for the social enjoyment of ALL who enter. We must all be mindful of this, and refrain from creating an environment in which forum members feel uncomfortable in expressing themselves. If you are here simply to bash the Star Wars franchise and its fans, then take it to another website where that kind of behavior is considered acceptable. It has no place here, and will be grounds for permanent banning.

    Be respectful and considerate of other forum members’ opinions, even if you disagree with them, and we’ll all get along just fine.

    6- Of course, we all know that disagreements will occur. However, each and every forum member is expected to be respectful in their disagreements. Uncontrolled arguments (regardless of who may have started said argument) will result in a temporary ban, and continual disrespectful arguments may result in a permanent ban.

    Haha I wonder if he got in trouble with the studio execs for not promoting MI:5

    • August 1, 2015 at 2:38 am

      doubt it. they played the clip. the film was mentioned. he did his job.

  • August 1, 2015 at 12:54 am

    The actors from the PT constantly talked about how difficult it was to act against green screen. Why wasn’t anyone complaining about their repetitions mentions of blu/green screen acting?

    • August 1, 2015 at 4:31 pm

      People can say what they want, but it is my opinion that one the big reasons there is any annoyance over talk of the effects process is that some feel it is a slight to the way the prequels were made in the main. Which it may very well be. I think, watching the teasers, what excites me more than effects is there seems to be some emotional resonance and energy from the characters blended with the effects.

      What was off about the prequels, to me, was that the scenes with actors seemed static and lifeless juxtaposed with all cgi scenes where the camera seems jittery and acrobatic. It’s almost like two different directors were at work. A perfect example of this were the scenes on geonosis where there are just clones and battle stuff going on, no actors. It just seems like a different movie at times. Just my opinion though.

        Thank you for your input young one, your insight defies your years… Now get out of my way…

    Finally, a story focused on Jar Jar. He’s the new Sith lord. Henceforth, he shall be known As Supreme Leader Snoke. Muahahaha

    • August 1, 2015 at 2:40 am

      the same Jar Jar joke that Simon Pegg did a year or two ago with Abrams.

  • August 1, 2015 at 1:03 am

    I always found Stewart to be a prick tbh and John Oliver is far funnier but he must be a fan of the films considering he emceed one of the celebrations awhile back and has had Lucas on his show many times.

  • August 1, 2015 at 5:48 am

    Oh, so JJ can leak info about hurting his back, but never release a proper synopsis for TFA? Way to make yourself look like a hero while saying nothing meaningful about Star Wars.

    • August 1, 2015 at 6:47 am

      The guy is only human, the moment he releases a proper synopsis it will be torn apart by the rabid fans and the movie will judged/condemned before it’s even released… He must be sh^tt^ng his pants, this will most likely define his career.

  • August 1, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    Look at these Jews having a blast haha

    • August 1, 2015 at 6:39 pm

      Dude, they’re Jawas, have some respect…

  • August 2, 2015 at 12:22 pm
