    This is a series of three alternate fan-made posters for Star War Episode VII designed by DeviantARTist AndrewSS7. Will the actual movie posters look this good? I doubt it. Of course, I've been wrong before. Like when I camped out to see all three prequels. Keep going for ... / Continue →

    This is a Star Wars Episode VII movie poster as imagined by UK designer Old Red Jalopy for MTV News using photos of the recently announced cast. Is this what the actual poster will look like? Probably not. Are we all going to dress up as our favorite characters and go see th... / Continue →

    This is the Death Star painted on a lady's butt. I'm not sure if she did it herself in the mirror or if somebody helped. I'm also not sure why it's painted on both cheeks. Maybe one is supposed to be a front view and the other a back view. I don't know, I don't what the hel... / Continue →
