There are tons of examples of how creepy music can be when put into a minor key, but what happens when you change one of the most recognizable villainous songs into a major key?

Choo choo, all aboard the feels train! You may want to have an onion standing by, in case you need an excuse for the water leaking from your face.

This Gal Live Tweeted Her First Time Watching Star Wars and Got a Lot of Things Wrong

We can't be expected to know or have seen everything. There are some people who, for some reason, didn't watch an iconic movie when it came out, and are therefore clueless about it. But that's okay! I don't judge you if you haven't seen Star Wars or Harry Potter. You'd just better catch up pretty quick (look at some Star Wars memes to refresh your memory). Wouldn't want you to be as behind as this girl (I mean, she got some things right so brownie points for that). #longlivespacevoldemort. Warning: her potty mouth is worse than R2D2's.

I hope you didn't need to get anything done for the rest of the day, because you're about to be too busy fighting Stormtroopers.

Lightsaber Escape is a new game/experience built by Google that turns your smartphone, in combination with Chrome on your computer, into a lightsaber. Once you pair and calibrate your device, you're off on a quest to escape a Star Destroyer filled with Stormtroopers. They're surprisingly good shots.




Can you make it out in one piece?

We know not everyone is able to duck out of work early today to wait in line for the midnight release of Star Wars: the Force Awakens, but in just a few hours we're all at risk for seeing real, plot-affecting spoilers. Luckily for those of us who can't make it to a theater any time soon, there's Force Block, the Star Wars spoiler blocking extension for Google Chrome.

Force Block will help you avoid spoilers by alerting you to that a page you're about to visit may contain spoilers. From there, you can bail or proceed at your own risk.

May the Force Block be with all of you between now and whenever you get to see the movie.

If you were hoping Star Trek was going to take a turn back to its science-y roots, I've got some bad news for you.

If this newly married couple survived the battle of Hoth together, they can get through anything. Check out the before and after of their epic wedding photo below, and a video of the photoshopping process that went into creating it above.

This is just Mike V's speculation, but it's a pretty compelling timeline for the film. If you're avoiding potential spoilers turn away, but for those who like to speculate, here's Mikes theory:

- Poe Dameron (with BB-8) is sent by Leia to Jakku to find Rey.

- Kylo Ren and The First Order arrive on Jakku. They attack a village and Poe is captured. BB-8 escapes.

- Poe is brought to the Star Destroyer, Finalizer, that is in orbit of Jakku.

- Kylo Ren tortures Poe and uses the Force to extract information from him.

- Finn witnesses Poe being tortured. Having a crisis of conscience, Finn decides to help free Poe (Poe's blood is on Finn's helmet). Finn ends up with Poe's jacket.

- Finn and Poe both flee in separate TIE fighters, but Finn's TIE Fighter takes damage and crash lands on Jakku.

- Rey is going about her day, scavenging from the remains of the Star Destroyer, Inflictor. She encounters BB-8.

- Kylo Ren regroups with the rest of the First Order to witness the test fire of their new superweapon, Star Killer Base.

- Rey and BB-8 eventually encounter Finn.

- The First Order attack the trio and they then are aided by Han Solo and Chewbacca.

- The group uses the Millennium Falcon to escape Jakku.

- The group formally meet each other and then go to Takodana to meet Maz Kanata in her castle.

- Maz Kanata senses that Rey is Force sensitive and discusses this with her.

- The First Order is made aware of the groups location and attacks Maz Kanata's castle, leaving it in ruins. Kylo Ren looks for Rey and captures her.

- Poe and the Resistance lead a rescue party, which starts the Battle of Takodana. All are rescued except for Rey, who is taken to Starkiller Base.

- The Resistance Regroups. Maz Kanata gives Anakin/Luke's lightsaber to Leia.

- The Resistance plans a rescue of Rey as well as an attack on Star Killer Base.

- The Battle of Star Killer Base ensues.

- Kylo Ren faces Finn in lightsaber combat and emerges victorious (whether Finn survives remains to be seen).

- Rey finally accepts her Force abilities and faces Kylo Ren.

- Luke senses the "Awakening" of the Force in Rey. (Not really sure this clip goes here but it makes the most sense to me).

If Max Nicholson can make the prequels look this good with a Force Awakens inspired trailer, what does that mean for The Force Awakens? It has some amazing trailers, but what if it turns out to be as bad as the prequels did? The suspense is too much!
