This season of Saturday Night Live isn’t exactly the best season. And while their digital shorts creators Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer and Andy Samberg,are long gone, the SNL team still manages to churn out creative videos in their absence. The Hobbit Trilogy’s Martin Freeman hosted the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live, and starred in their digital sketch where the actor reprised his role as Bilbo Baggins in a parody of The Office set in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth. Bobby Moynihan was Gandalf, while Taran Killam did a hilarious portrayal of Gollum that might give Andy Serkis a run for his money.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Chracter Names Revealed On Trading Cards

star-wars-banner

Normally we’d learn about characters through the source material, a plot synopsis, or straight from the cast or crew. But given that everyone is so tight-lipped about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, trying to get information like names of the characters is next to impossible. We already know that the film is canon, and will see the return of Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO, and more iconic starships. Plus the Sith. But since the trailer dropped a few weeks back, we don’t know who John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, or Oscar Issac is playing. We also don’t now who the Sith with the broadsword is – maybe it is Adam Driver. And we cannot just keep calling the rolling droid a soccer ball.

Now in a very cool move, EW has revealed the names of the characters seen in the trailer on trading cards. Okay, they aren’t actually trading cards, however, these images resemble the trading cards of yesteryear, and even us the Star Wars designs. Hit the jump to see them all. [Read more…]

That “The Walking Dead” Spoiler and the Death of Viral Marketing

viralheart

As soon as the east coast airing of the mid-season finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead ended this past Sunday, the various social media accounts associated with the program posted a huge spoiler to the dismay of millions of fans around the world who had yet to see the episode. This has happened before, but not for The Walking Dead. NBC spoiled the death of Danny Matheson during Revolution. The stars and producers of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. live tweet every episode – even the Executive Editorial Director of Marvel’s Digital Media Group, Ryan Penagos, gets in on that action. Is this to build hype or is there something much more sinister and scolding behind this behavior? Could this be the end of viral marketing? Find out after the jump. [Read more…]

This is pretty much the Black Friday for moviegoers. The trailer debut for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has just been announced. Sources say it will be revealed in nine theaters, and it will be played before every movie shown. We don’t know exactly when it will be made available online. It’s a great movie marketing strategy, since the Friday after Thanksgiving is generally the busiest for various business, including movie theaters. Based on the information released, the nine theaters that will show this are exclusively Regal Edwards Theaters. Now there is a chance that it could expand to a few more, but for now, take the list of locations after the jump as the only theaters you will be able to see the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
