Star Wars: J.J. Abrams Wants the Theatrical Cuts of the Original Trilogy Released

Star Wars: J.J. Abrams Wants the Theatrical Cuts of the Original Trilogy Released

As the premiere for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker draws closer, director J.J. Abrams has opened up about his desire to see the original cuts of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi released. The last official piece of physical media to contain the theatrical cuts of Episodes IV-VI  was the 1995 THX VHS box-set. Since then, fans have been at a loss trying to find the original cuts to watch and/or show to those who’ve never seen them before. Talking to NowThis, Abrams explained that he tried asking Lucasfilm about the possibility of an original cut release, but hit a bit of a brick wall. “I’ve been told that, for reasons that I quite don’t understand, that that’s not necessarily possible,” he said.

Here's How Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Will Handle Rey's Lineage

Here's How Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Will Handle Rey's Lineage

We’re less than a week out from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and while director J.J. Abrams has spoken about what he’s called Rian Johnson’s “unconventional approach” to The Last Jedi, Rise of Skywalker co-writer Chris Terrio has opened up about the creative process for crafting the final chapter in the Skywalker Saga. Talking to Rolling Stone, Terrio discussed trying to blend together the ideas about Rey’s origins that Abrams started in The Force Awakens and the story Kylo Ren told her in The Last Jedi, about her parents being junk traders.

Watchmen: American Hero Story Wasn't a Shot at Zack Snyder

Watchmen: American Hero Story Wasn't a Shot at Zack Snyder

HBO’s Watchmen is not only one of the year’s most acclaimed new series, but it’s filled with fun Easter eggs that harken back to the original graphic novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. On top of that, there are also a few punchy peculiarities that come with this alternate world – like the “show within a show” called American Hero Story that’s supposed to be a tell-all about Hooded Justice and The Minutemen. A few episodes have showed us clips from the faux series, which was a loving nod to producer Ryan Murphy’s TV empire (Murphy himself almost cameo’d as the creator of Americvan Hero Story). The series not only gets the actual history wrong (as we’d learn who Hooded Justice really was in Episode 6, “This Extraordinary Being”), but some fans noticed that an action scene, showing Hooded Justice’s debut, fighting bad guys in a store, was filmed in a hyper-stylized, ultra-violent way that seemed, at the time, like a dig at Zack Snyder’s Watchmen from 2009.

Xbox chief Phil Spencer recently said that the next generation Xbox – at the time known as Project Scarlett – would be named in accordance with its purpose. So we speculated wildly. But now we have the official name: Xbox Series X. With that in mind, we went back to our staff to speculate about what that official name tells us about Microsoft’s new big black obelisk.
