Given that producer Rick McCallum maintained a consistent level of communication and exposure throughout his tenure at Lucasfilm -- shepherding the “Star Wars” special editions and prequel trilogy to fruition -- it was a bit of a surprise to see his recent retirement notice come under such quiet circumstances. Originally revealed via third-party on the ForceCast podcast, his departure has now been given an official statement, as well as an interesting possibility for the future.

While critics' reactions to Peter Jackson's long-awaited “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” should start dropping today (the first quasi-review has tilted toward the positive), it's up to the film's marketing team to continue the slow intriguing reveal, and that means showing off one of the J.R.R.

If all goes according to plan, three massive geek movies are coming in 2015: "Star Wars: Episode 7," "The Avengers 2" and "Justice League," which equals non-stop rumors for the next little while. In fact, it was just last week that we dealt with the quick rise and fall of the "Joseph-Gordon-Levitt-is-the-new-Batman" rumors and now, "Justice League" may or may not have picked its villain.

We remain continually impressed by the extent to which J.J.

But Abrams' mystery box can't stay shut forever, even for a guaranteed hit like next summer's blockbuster, and the floodgates are soon to open, with a trailer on its way next week, and nine minutes of IMAX footage from the film set to play before "The Hobbit; An Unexpected Journey" next week.

Earlier this year there were rumors that Quentin Tarantino's slavery Western "Django Unchained" was running over three hours. Given the screenplay was around 170 pages, this wasn't entirely a surprise, and test screenings essentially confirmed the unofficial running time. But then Tarantino himself recently said he didn't want the movie to be over three hours long and had been wrestling with whiddling his latest epic down to size.
