A new television drama series based on the book by Lily Koppel, ‘The Astronaut Wives Club’ focuses on seven women who were key players behind some of the biggest events in American history. As America’s astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, the lives of their young wives were transformed, seemingly overnight, from military spouses to American royalty. As their celebrity rose, and tragedy began to touch their lives, they rallied together. ‘The Astronaut Wives Club’ premieres Thursday, June 18 at 8:00 pm ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.

In honor of the second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015), Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm have provided us with hi-res stills from the feature. You can find the newly released stills in our gallery below, but what’s especially awesome to note is that some of the stills appear as both their cropped film ratio as well as both IMAX and 4K formats which show even more of the background.
Today at the Star Wars Celebration event in Anaheim, California, Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm debuted the second teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015), which you can find embedded below.

Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan & Abrams, features a cast including actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow.

Today at the Star Wars Celebration event in Anaheim, California, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015) director JJ Abrams announced that one of the settings for the film will not be Tatooine has others have suspected, but a new location known as Jakku.
We have learned earlier today that as part of the promotion for the film, Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm registered a domain name for the film titled PlanetJakku.com. At this time, the site is dormant but Abrams teased that we may be learning more about the location very soon, so it is likely the site will be turned into a viral marketing website.
Yesterday, Marvel released details for the upcoming original motion picture soundtrack for Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015) which will be available to own digitally on April 28 and on physical CD on May 19 (now available for pre-order).
In all, 28 tracks from the score were release (listed below). And while one track isn’t actually in the film (Danny Elfman’s ‘Heroes’), we were greeted with another surprise when a copy of the soundtrack landed on our virtual doorstep: a 29th track. It’s scored by Elfman and its overly complicated title is: ‘New Avengers – Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and it clocks in at 3:09, making it one of the longest tracks on the score. We have reached out to Hollywood Records for clarification and will update with additional information as it becomes available to us.
