New picture of Asajj Ventress from USA Today. Oh, and one thing I missed in yesterday’s L.A. Times article:
…and voice actors, including Samuel L. Jackson, reprising his Mace Windu character, and Anthony Daniels as the familiar voice of C-3P0.
Whoops. You win again, apathy! Err, TFN.

Jumper topped the box office this weekend, adding fuel to the fire that the combined power of Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson can propel a movie to do well even if the reviews are bad and there’s no giant all-powerful franchise backing it up. Or, maybe people just like sci-fi tinged action movies starring pretty boys and handsome badasses. Will we ever know?
Did anyone see it? Opinions?

Another week, another toy convention. AICN reports from the Nuremberg Toy Fair:
Finally STAR WARS: no doubt, it has still the Force. The new action figures and Lego looked fantastic. And for us Europeans it was great to got the confirmation that CLONE WARS ANIMATED movie – the first three parts of the new tv-series – will indeed be shown in our theatres in September as well – so not only in England. That will give a huge boost to all the toys that will be released this year, guaranteeing the future of that (or any other) brand or franchise.
Nothing we haven’t heard before, but at least the reports seem to be consistent…
Meanwhile, Samuel L. Jackson told MTV he’s ready and willing to revisit Mace Windu for the series. Make the call, George!

There are some videos as well as still shots from the teleporting-mutant movie Jumper with Samuel L. Jackson and Hayden Christensen, which comes out in a couple of weeks. Jackson twirls a mean taser! I wonder if he learned that by playing with lightsabers.

Yesterday was a big day for Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson fans, as the first trailer for Jumper was released. The movie is based on the book by Steven Gould, which means even Boing Boing got in on the squee action.

IGN lists their top ten cool Star Wars nerds. Honorees include Conan O’Brien, Seth Green, Kevin Smith, Samuel L. Jackson and… Oh, screw it, go read.
In other list news, Princess Leia’s buns top movie hairdo poll, beating out Marge Simpson, Audrey Herburn and John Travolta. That, my friends, is cultural permanence.

Surprisingly, there’s no Star Wars on QuigSpot’s list of the ten most obnoxiously over-quoted movies, unless one counts the whole ‘Anything with Samuel L. Jackson’ thing.
Now, maybe I hang out with too many geeks, but there are a few movies missing from this list: What about The Princess Bride? Spaceballs? The Big Lebowski? The collected works of Kevin Smith? What overused movie quotes could you live without?
It’s not a quote exactly, but one thing I don’t miss about scavenging for the weekly video posts is getting blasted with the motherbleeping Main Theme every other video. It’s practically an instant back-buttoner for me these days.

AICN claims that Marvel is writing Nick Fury into Iron Man. And guess who they say is taking on the role of the infamously badass superspy?
Okay, seriously: Samuel L. Jackson. Mind, the source is AICN, and the information is unconfirmed, but who better?
You caught me in a transitional period
