We have now less than two months to wait until the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, folks! Let’s celebrate with the film’s new international poster. Also in today’s Movie Morsels, the latest on X-Men Apocalypse, another Alice Through the Looking Glass tease, a Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 clip, and more!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The latest chapter in the Star Wars saga has itself a new international poster today. While it’s not dramatically different from the J.J. Abrams-directed epic’s domestic poster, there are a couple of interesting little differences, with fewer elements and Han and Leia pushed to the foreground…
Star Wars: The Force Awakens — starring Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Max von Sydow — opens everywhere on December 18.
We’ve got a new X-Men: Apocalypse update from director Bryan Singer, who, straight from his editing suite, assures us the film’s first trailer will arrive very soon.
Comicbook.com has also reported that the film is heading back to Montreal for some additional shooting in January, with Hugh Jackman possibly donning his claws once more as Wolverine.
Alice Through the Looking Glass
Hot on the heels of the first tease for Disney’s Alice in Wonderland sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass, comes a second tease for the film, indicating the first full teaser trailer will arrive soon…

Directed by James Bobin and produced by Tim Burton, Through the Looking Glass stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Rhys Ifans. It opens on May 27, 2016.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2
Katniss Everdeen tells a gleeful Johanna Mason of her plans to kill President Snow in the latest clip from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2. Unfortunately, we can’t embed it for you to watch here, so head on over to Facebook now to see it.
The fourth and final Hunger Games film, Mockingjay — Part 2 lands on November 20, and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Donald Sutherland.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy redefine weather-beaten in two new posters for their western thriller The Revenant, directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu and based on Michael Punke’s 2002 novel about real-life frontiersman Hugh Glass. Will Poulter and Domhnall Gleeson co-star in the December 25 release.
The Six Billion Dollar Man
Yes, you read that correctly. Apparently the cost of cybernetics technology has increased dramatically in the last forty years, and ’70s TV fave The Six Million Dollar Man is being reimagined as The Six Billion Dollar Man. Mark Wahlberg will star in the title role. Damian Szifron, who helmed the recent Wild Tales, will direct the film, which starts shooting in 2016 for a release on December 22, 2017
