VIDEO: Fan-made anime is the Star Wars + Robotech lovechild you always wanted!

THIS needs to be a real thing! At the moment, it looks to be a piece of an unfinished whole--one that I hope is eventually completed by the extremely talented Otaking77077. The fast-action dogfights between Imperial TIEs and Rebel X-wings are made even more exciting by an imposing, original soundtrack.

I've always loved the way traditionally drawn Japanese animation realized laser blasts, smoke plumes, and tracer fire effects. Here is the perfect marriage of that imitable style, combined with what appears to be some cell-shaded 3D models (computer graphics). That's my guess anyway. I've asked the creator to clarify how it was made. If it's not a blend of both--and truly all hand drawn--then it truly is a remarkable feat. Either way, it's pretty flippin' amazing!

Hat tip to Phil over at Battlegrip for this one!

It's already my favorite movie ever. Even though it hasn't even come out yet. Shut up. You love it too!

Guardians of the Galaxy Poster is pure space fantasy!

I'd posted this earlier today on Google+, but it's just too cool to resist. That is some sweet space opera art!

TRAILER: Chris Nolan's INTERSTELLAR launches!

Matthew McConaughey reaches beyond the solar system to save us all.

"We must reach far beyond our own lifespans. We must think--not as individuals--but as a species."

Concept art: Lucasarts' abandonded Darth Maul game

Here's some incredible character designs and concept art from Lucasarts' cancelled Darth Maul video game. Game Informer's full, seriously strange tale of the game's demise has convinced me once and for all that the franchise is in better hands at the Mouse House.


And yes, that last pic is Darth Talon, from the far future of Dark Horse's Star Wars Legacy.
