Things We Saw Today: We Wish These Star Wars-Inspired Cars Were Real
A U.K. car company imagined what kinds of vehicles our favorite Star Wars characters would drive–and the results are pretty cool. I kind of want to own the one inspired by the stormtrooper uniform, or the Millennium Falcon. (via The Daily Dot)
- Tom Holland confirmed that the new Spider-Man movie will be filming mostly in Atlanta–due to the fact that it’s a lot cheaper to build a New York set than it is to actually film there. “We probably will end up here [in New York] for one week or two.” O RLY? (via Comic Book Resources)
- Daisy Ridley says J.J. Abrams called her acting “wooden” on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Granted, this was early on in production and she had just landed her first big acting job–but still, that was way harsh, Tai. (via UpRoxx)
GODS OF EGYPT makes me value Abrams' STAR WARS choices more. Makes me cheer more for Coogler's CREED. We all deserve icons in our own image.

Selma director and all-around amazing person Ava DuVernay dropped some truths on Twitter in the aftermath of the Gods of Egypt studio apology regarding their whitewashing. There’s so much to be excited for with Star Wars, not the least of which is the diversity in the cast.
- Daniel Radcliffe is officially jealous of Eddie Redmayne’s costumes in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: “I got jeans and a zip top for 10 years and you’ve got a great coat already?” (via Variety)
- Suffragette actress Carey Mulligan admitted that we probably won’t see her starring in a big Marvel-like franchise any time soon: “With these types of franchise films there’s always the conversation of starring in more than one film and I’m not interested in playing the same character in more than one film. What’s appealing to me is playing different characters.” (via Deadline)
