I find it hard to believe Harrison Ford's box office revenue is behind anybody's, even Samuel Jackson's.

EDIT: I guess it's all the Marvel movies for Jackson.
and jurassic park, and coming to america, and patriot games
Ford was also in Patriot Games.

Looking at it, Samuel Jackson has had roles in a lot of box offices hits. Put them up together in leading roles and it isn't close, though.

1. Fisher - assuming by prime you mean always wear her gold bikini

2. lightsaber

3. Probably Obi in his heyday

4. Falcon

5. Bats

6. No opinion

7. None of those really didn't make sense. There may have been better ways to tell the story. The trade federation had multiple ships, but only one was in control of the droids. And my understanding (again, filming issue) was invading the planet was illegal and shortly afterwards the Senate intervened.

8. I say dead. Only thing dumber than him being alive was Darth Maul being alive.

9. Robotic hand on R2D2

1. Carrie - and it's not even a debate!

2. Lightsaber - I'd cut my hand off for sure

3. Anakin - Force powers, be a d-bag all day, Padme lovin to wrap up the day.

4. X-Wing - The boss for an entire month!

5. Batman - Waits for Predator to engage Jango and he hacks the self destruct on Predators arm.

6. Who? - I'm not nerdy enough

7. High Ground - Lucas wasn't even trying anymore.

8. Alive - R.I.P. Sarlacc Pit

9. Han and Leia's love theme playing while the Falcon evades tie fighters.




Seriously though... the ONLY answer to #1 is Carrie Fisher!!!!

In Attack of the Clones, its the three creatures in the gladiator style arena on Geonosis that are attacking Padme, Annakin, and Obi Wan on the pillars.

Mid-day poll update - Rey actually doing better against Luke than Kylo is against Han. Think we'll have both a consolation and a championship round tomorrow.

I can't believe none of the soundtrack has leaked/been released yet.

So the halberd type thing the stormtrooper has that is going to take on Finn when he is wielding a lightsaber, is that sort of like the staff type weapons General Grevious's bodyguards had in ATOC?

The electrical field generated by the halberd thing obivsouly interferes with the lightsaber.

I think the answer to that question is simple then... it's the praying mantis thing... he's the only one that didn't get completely punked until Obi-Wan got his lightsaber back! The other 2 went down like chumps.

Pick 9 for the day (I was sort of thinking the voting was the Pick 3 but guess I was wrong)

1. In her prime, do you take Carrie Fisher or Natalie Portman?

2. You can either have a lightsaber or Boba Fett's suit of armor - and neither one ever wears out - which do you take?

3. You can be one character for 24 hours - with all of their powers / access to ships / etc. For instance, if you pick Yoda, you've got the full-on Force; if you pick Han, you get the Falcon and hanging out with Chewie; If you pick Anakin, you can act like a b* ll day but still go home to get some Nabooty. Who do you want to be?

4. Which of these modes of transportation would you choose? A) The Millenium Falcon for 1 week. B) An X-Wing for 1 month. C) Luke's landspeeder for 1 year. D) A tauntaun for 20 years.

5. Batman, Jango Fett, and the Predator are all dropped in the Central American jungle from Predator I (sans Arnold, Apollo Creed, and Painless). Which one of them is alive at the end of the day?

6. Reek, Acklay, or Nexu? Which is the coolest?

7. Which of these things made the least sense in the prequel plots? A) The Trade Federation blockades Naboo with its ships, but when Padme, et al, returns to liberate the planet, there's only one ship there. B) When Padme, Anakin, and Obi-Wan get free in the Geonosis arena, two other Jedi throw Ani and Obi spare lightsabers. Padme meanwhile finds a spare gun laying in the arena untouched. Who put it there? C) The high ground is the way to defeat the Chosen One.

8. Boba Fett, alive or dead?

9. Best moment of the TFA trailers so far for you.



8. Why the F does Boba Fett go out like a b*tch in ROTJ?

Yes, the consensus was that it was a prudent and wise decision. Very appreciated by the fans of Texags.

Because he is a *****. Maybe it's because when I first watched them, I watched the first 3 in a row (like 1996) but I think that because of that, he doesn't seem as cool as he would have if I had been waiting for years in between the movies.

Plus I hated him in the Clone Wars. He was so whiny. And in the Clone Wars, we find out that he isn't even that special, there are tons of other people just like him, the Mandelorians. So the fact that he has a badass jet pack and ship isn't that original anymore either. Finally, thanks to the prequels, he is literally nothing more than an advanced storm trooper.


Moral of the story, give me Han or Luke any day of the week.

Am I missing something on Warwick Davis? There's no way in hell he's worth $10 billion, right?

Edit: Nevermind, I guess they're counting all the Harry Potters.


So, I guess Jar Jar Binks is more valuable to the Star Wars franchise than Darth Vader.

It was around Christmastime 2012 when Michael Arndt, Lawrence Kasdan, Simon Kinberg, Pablo Hidalgo and Kiri Hart converged for the first time in an office at Big Rock Ranch in Marin the 1,000-acre spread George Lucas built next to his beloved Skywalker Ranch to carry out an initial brainstorming session. Over the next month, they began creating the framework forEpisodes VII, VIII and IX as well as such spinoffs as Rogue One.

How cool would it have been to be part of these meetings?
