22 Rare Star Wars Polaroids From 'Return Of The Jedi'

These days, Star Wars can be a bit of a polarizing series. Many fans moan and groan about the deterioration of storytelling, how they feel rushed, and how there are tons of unresolved plot lines - not to mention straight up plot holes. Instead of lamenting the new, why not celebrate the old? The original Star Wars trilogy starring Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford is nearly always worthy of a revisit. And what better way to revisit than with a gallery of rare Polaroids from Return of the Jedi? Polaroids were utilized to preserve continuity by prop stylists, wardrobe, and the script supervisor. Generally, these photos would be destroyed after production, so we're lucky to have this amazing behind-the-scenes look at production. We've put together some of our favorites, but you can enjoy a whole lot more over at vintag.es .

Tumblr User Shares Brilliant Theory For Why Violet Should've Won Wonka's Chocolate Factory

Until now, our favorite hot button theory about Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory has been that Grandpa Joe is the true villain of the film and the Roald Dahl book it's based on. This Tumblr thread from user evayna changes all of that. In the film, the impoverished Charlie ends up winning the f*cked up competition, thus inheriting Wonka's fortune and position as the world's most deranged and masochistic candy maker. Evayna believes that this honor should have been bestowed to the gum-chewing Violet Beauregarde, and she's got some solid evidence to back this theory up. We're 100% sold.

While they don't provide much insight regarding the future monster champion, they're a fun taste of how damn opinionated fans are when it comes to kaiju characters. March 26th had better hurry up.

Because it seems like Bruce is trying to achieve both.

Page Six reported the incident, prompting Twitter to do what it does best—roast the hell out of the doer of the Bad Thing. We've collected some of the best tweets that cleverly use the titles of movies starring Willis to put a punny spin on all the fuss.

It's said that you learn something new every day. Well, today we learned that Nicolas Cage was slated to star in a Tim Burton-helmed Superman film. The movie, titled Superman Lives sounded like the breath of fresh air that the franchise needed. But due to production company drama, the plug was ultimately pulled. These costume tests from 1997, however, give us a taste of the awesomeness that might have been.

Chris Evans To Voice 'The Human Buzz Lightyear' And Twitter Has Questions

On Thursday, Chris Evans expressed excitement over Pixar's announcement of 'Lightyear' coming out in 2022. He followed up with an intriguing tweet clarifying that he will be the voice of Buzz Lightyear the human, not the toy. Twitter discussed the implications of this and many were left confused and desperate for answers. Is this the origin story of the fictional Buzz Lightyear character that the toy in 'Toy Story' is based on, or is there a real Buzz Lightyear astronaut within the 'Toy Story' universe that this movie will be a sort of biopic for? And if the latter is true, does that mean the 'Toy Story' universe has sci-fi qualities (other than talking toys) we never knew about? Much to consider.

We've collected some highlights from the hilarious thread. Hopefully Chris Evans will follow up with some even more confusing clarification tweets soon.

This is the origin story of the human Buzz Lightyear that the toy is based on | Ben Dukes @BenDukes Replying to @ChrisEvans 000 So.. this is NOT the real fake Buzz Lightyear, but the fake real Buzz Lightyear that the fake Buzz Lightyear was based on. Got it.
