How to Throw a Star Wars Halloween Party

by Jenn Fujikawa

It’s the spookiest time of year, when mynocks fly high and dianogas creep low. Halloween and Star Wars are a perfect fit — just incorporate creatures and strange treats to transform your festivities into the scariest party in the galaxy. Here’s how.

star-wars-halloween-1

This dark side party is definitely all about a dark theme so play it up with a black-hued backdrop, tablecloth, and tulle. Make a party banner by printing out “Trick or Treat” in Aurebesh and adding a few black and gray pom poms for texture.

No Halloween party is complete without treats. It’s easy to take normal everyday snacks and transform them by using beakers, jars, and glass to make them look positively frightening. Add chalkboard signs to make sure your guests know exactly what they’re eating and a few white pumpkins for a muted color.

tauntaun-entrails dianoga

Licorice whips make perfect dianoga tentacles…just imagine being slowly pulled under the surface by black licorice. Terrifying! Gummy worms are an ideal stand-in for tauntaun entrails, which are actually pretty tasty.

lightning-dewback

If Force lightning was really made of rock candy, being attacked might not be so bad.

mason-candy-jars

Give mini Corellian ships a black paint job to create your own ominous canisters out of mason jars. Place the painted toys on top of jars to create creep-worthy containers then fill them up with rancor jerky, silver gumball Death Stars, and sandwich cookie TIE fighter wings.

wampa-bones

When in doubt, add a monster to the mix! A glass cloche is the perfect way to display your beloved Star Wars creatures. This poor one-armed wampa is surrounded by “bones” — which are actually pieces of sweet coconut strips.

Get inventive with your own favorite treats to trick your party guests into having a creepy dark side party this Halloween!

Newswire: Roxane Gay and Yona Harvey join Marvel Comics for World Of Wakanda

by Esther Zuckerman

Making steps toward remedying contentious behind-the-scenes diversity issues, Marvel Comics has tapped essayist and novelist Roxane Gay and poet Yona Harvey to write for Black Panther companion series World Of Wakanda, the New York Times reports. The news comes shortly after the company faced criticism for announcing a black female Iron Man written by a white man, Brian Michael Bendis. “Since Marvel’s founding in 1939, it appears that not a single black woman has penned a comic for [the company],” Ira Madison III wrote at MTV News. “That is insane.”

Gay’s story concerns Ayo and Aneka, a romantically involved couple who were formerly part of Black Panther’s all-female bodyguard team, the Dora Milaje. The Bad Feminist author is co-writing the comic with Ta-Nehisi Coates, who is penning the superhero’s ongoing series to great acclaim. Meanwhile, Harvey’s story is about Zenzi, a character familiar to readers ...

Newswire: Thom Yorke is surprised people still care about Radiohead

by Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya
Mstrox

me too

In an interview with Q Magazine, Thom Yorke basically said he didn’t think anyone would give a shit about a Radiohead return, which seems like a pretty big slap in the face to the fans left high and dry when the band’s first North American tour in years sold out insanely fast. Those dolphins who love Radiohead are offended, too. Yorke just didn’t think people—or dolphins, for that matter—would really care about A Moon Shaped Pool, the band’s first release after a five-year break, even though the album was hyped before it even dropped.

“We expected the opposite,” Yorke told Q Magazine. “I cherish the band, but I don’t expect anyone else to.” But A Moon Shaped Pool debuted at No. 1 in England and currently holds the No. 4 slot on the Billboard Hot 200 in the US. Sure, half a decade ...

Newswire: Don’t go see Hamilton with Art Garfunkel, or Shonda Rhimes will kick your ass

by William Hughes

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton is the hottest thing on Broadway right now, drawing sold-out crowds, and luring in everyone from high school kids scrounging for tickets to the Hollywood elite. But cast member Leslie Odom Jr. told a story on The Tonight Show last night that proves that big-name musical celebrities can be just as annoying to sit by in the theater as the rowdy teens at your local megaplex.

Talking to Jimmy Fallon, the Tony-nominated actor—who plays Aaron Burr in the hip-hop-filled story of America’s first Secretary of Treasury—recounted his own experience watching the show, after scoring tickets to see it during a vacation from his run. Sitting in the V.I.P. section of the audience, Odom was seated near Art Garfunkel, who proceeded to make a nuisance of himself, singing along with the show, talking, and apparently in a state of some intoxication.

Newswire: Billy Corgan is scared of the “hashtag generation” going after his free speech

by Sam Barsanti
Mstrox

Billy Corgan straight up looks like a Mike Myers character now.

Billy Corgan built a successful music career on being an angsty rock ‘n’ roll boy, and in recent years he has leveraged that angst into a website about cars or something, a producing gig with TNA Wrestling, and a memoir that may or may not cover the entirety of human history. Despite all that success, though, Corgan is still just a rat in a cage. He has fears and anxieties like any other normal person does, and he recently appeared on a popular radio show to discuss them with a guy who knows all about fears and anxieties (because he constantly invents them): High-profile conspiracy theorist/asshole Sandy Hook truther Alex Jones.

Corgan was on the show to promote a vaguely defined documentary he’s working on about the history of America, explaining that he interviewed a bunch of people across the country who all expressed the surprising idea that ...

Newswire: Captain America’s Civil War squad drops by Kimmel to share a clip and some trivia

by Danette Chavez

In keeping with his newly-established tradition of featuring Marvel exclusives, Jimmy Kimmel’s lined up many of Captain America: Civil War players to appear on his talk show this week. Monday night’s episode featured Chris Evans, Paul Rudd, Anthony Mackie, and Sebastian Stan, otherwise known as (most of) Team Cap. The charming foursome showed up with a previously unseen Civil War clip, in which Scott Lang meets Steve Rogers for the first time.

Lang can’t really keep his cool around Captain America or Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), telling them both that they’re “awesome,” but stopping just short of referring to the beginning of a beautiful friendship. This leads Kimmel to wonder how well everyone has gotten to know each other, considering Civil War took five months to shoot. Evans displays the most extensive knowledge of the group (which is kind of fitting), correctly answering questions about Mackie ...

Great Job, Internet!: Read This: Batman and Robin have been mistaken for gay since the beginning

by Joe Blevins
Mstrox

"mistaken"

When Batman adopted a young ward named Dick Grayson and renamed him Robin back in 1940, it had a number of positive effects on his career. His comic-book sales doubled, his public image was softened considerably, and he finally had someone to talk to while he was solving all those complicated cases. But the change had another long-term effect on the franchise: For the next 76 years (and counting), Batman and Robin would be mistaken as being gay. Glen Weldon, the author of The Caped Crusade: Batman And The Rise Of Nerd Culture, sorts through all of this supposed Bat-subtext in a piece for Slate called “A Brief History Of Dick.” Weldon makes it very clear at the outset that the Dark Knight and his faithful sidekick are heterosexual. Nearly every important artist and writer behind the character, from Bob Kane to Frank Miller, agrees on that. One major exception ...

omg

The long-awaited, oft-discussed Beetlejuice sequel has already been written and green-lit by Warner Bros., presumably following the third and most necessary incantation of the Ghost With The Most’s name. That’s according to Showbiz Spy, which tracked down Tim Burton to ask him to comment on the sequel that Winona Ryder mentioned was definitely in the works back in August. The director gave a promising update on the project:

“The film is a go and has been approved by the Warner Bros. team, we have talked with the cast members we wanted for the film and they are all on board, this includes both Winona and Michael. We have the script in hand everything is in place all we need to do now is get ready to start filming.”

Spider-Man is swinging into a trailer.

The new trailer for Captain America: Civil War Marvel promised us would drop today has, indeed, dropped. And speaking of dropping in: As Marvel has also been teasing for a while, after a sober discussion of the rights and responsibilities of superhero-dom also touched upon in previous trailers for the film, just when everyone’s getting ready to meet face-to-face in an all-out superhero brawl, in swings Spider-Man to lighten the mood while putting Captain America in web handcuffs. This particular clip also marks the friendly neighborhood debut of Tom Holland as the webslinger, in advance of his appearance in yet another Spider-Man origin story next year.

Great Job, Internet!: This Christmas, replace your yule log with 5 hours of a burning Darth Vader

by Rob Dean

Two things are fast upon the world—the holiday season and the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As both prepare to overtake the world’s consciousness, the holidays have begun to infiltrate commercials, websites, and entire TV networks while the Star Wars epidemic reaches a fever pitch with celebrities and Facebook profile changes. But why separate the yuletide spirit from the growing excitement of the return of a beloved intellectual property? One YouTube user has found a way to combine them both for everyone’s Star Wars/holiday needs (and no, it has nothing to do with the wretched TV special).

Benjamin Apple has created a yule-log video for Star Wars enthusiasts to enjoy throughout their holiday season by creating a five-hour-long video of Darth Vader’s corpse roasting on a funeral pyre. Now enthusiasts can simply cue up the video and enjoy 300 minutes of a villain ...

This looks real good

Terra-da-loo, The A.V. Club! Netflix has released the first full trailer for With Bob And David, giving Mr. Show fans their first glimpse at the catchphrases they’ll be spouting until Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, and friends launch another sketch-comedy series a decade from now. As promised, several familiar faces from the original show appear in the trailer, with the addition of famous friends Paget Brewster, Scott Aukerman, and Keegan-Michael Key. Also familiar are the show’s bare-bones sets and goofy wigs, proving that streaming is the new Mondays at midnight on HBO.

Whether Durlyn ever got to fuck that fish is not addressed, but Netflix has to save something for With Bob And David’s debut on November 13.

Newswire: Kung Pow: Enter The Fist is getting a sequel for some reason

by Danette Chavez
Mstrox

THIS IS GREAT NEWS

Although we’re still not entirely certain that Kung Pow: Enter The Fist was actually a movie, its creator has decided to put together a sequel. Steve Oedekerk—who wrote, starred, and directed this so-called “film”—announced last week at Dragonfest that he is moving forward with the sequel that’s sort of been thirteen years in the making.

Much like everyone else, Oedekerk has no idea what a Kung Pow sequel would even be about, which means he might just string together a bunch of Dubsmash clips and call it a day. But the lack of a plotline certainly didn’t deter him from releasing the first one. Anyway, since his other works include Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls and The Nutty Professor as well as both entries in the blasphemous Almighty series, Oedekerk might as well revisit the old cow-udder fight sequence.

LEGO Movie directors on board for a young Han Solo film

by Dunc
Mstrox

In today's "Don't Really Give a Shit About This One" news...

lord-miller800

The second Anthology film will feature a young Han Solo film, and The LEGO Movie’s Christopher Miller and Phil Lord are at the helm, StarWars.com announced today.

The screenplay, by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, focuses on how Han Solo became “the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina.” The film is set for a May 25, 2018 release.

I’d say to gird yourself for the casting speculation, but we already know how that goes…

According to The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news just before LFL did, the Han Solo film is not the one that Josh Trank was working on, though obviously it’s occupying the same slot now. That film was rumored (though never confirmed) to be about Boba Fett.
