    The black stripes aren't a design feature, they're obviously censoring parts of the AT AT.

    Confirmed - Episode 7 to be rated R.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned the quote, "If I weren't crazy, I'd be insane." -The Joker, might be a Mark Hamill hint.

    I was thinking of it more as an homage than a hint, but you could be right.

    Uh, you meant post-WWI tanks designs... right? [face_laugh] (Cause every tank needs a gun port for a solider to shot out of while traveling at 4mph)

    Unless by basic design you just meant treads, guns and armor which is far too generalistic imho to be accurate... especially since most Modern Tanks are all versions of the Panzer or Tiger mixed with the slanted armor of the T-34 (arguably 3 of the most important tank designs of all time)

    Not something worth bragging about but I was right about the push from May 2015. [face_thinking] Now, I can see this getting moved to May 2016.... [face_thinking]

    My Predictability Meter reads 45% chance of another delay happening.....45% and rising.

    IMHO, there's no way they'll move the release date back another five months. They settled on December because they felt it was a realistic option, and any further moves would create a lot of bad buzz.

    They won't move it. They didn't really move it the first time, since they never announced a release date before. Disney promised their shareholders 2015, so 2015 it will be.

    And really what would be the point in moving the date again? They start filming this spring and after they're finished with that they'll still have more than a year of post-production time to finish it up. How is that not enough time?

    Nice signature by the way.

    I am not basing it on anything, just a feeling (one that's usually spot-on). *shrug*

    It's a hint at the new movie's title. Star Wars Episode VII: Stormtroopers on Vacation.

    Doesn't affect SW since it wasn't going to be released in the summer 2015 anyway. However, this ensures it shouldn't be pushed to the summer 2016. Now we have Superman/Batman, Finding Nemo, Independence Day 2, Pirates 5 and Amazing Spiderman 3.

    Yeah, I think if this means anything it means we can definitely squash all the Episode VII pushed back to 2016 talk.
