It will come as no surprise to anyone that I am a HUGE Star Wars fan.
The Force Awakens was a breath of life into a fandom that has never truly died.
Since 1977 Star Wars has been a part of me. Han Solo was always my hero. Princess Leia was my heroine who showed me that I didn’t actually need a man to stand up for myself.
The fandom may have gone quiet for a few years and the prequels (although not bad) didn’t quite hit the mark but Christmas 2015 was the turning point.
Fandom got a slap in the face, was told to wake up and smell the roses. Star Wars was back and is set to be an even bigger part of our lives for the foreseable future.
We all had an Awakening. For me, in more ways than one.
With the Force Awakens came an obsession that has only gone from strength to strength over the last year and a half.
Kylo Ren…… or more precisely….. Adam Driver.
The more I found out about him, the more I watched him in things, the more I fell in love with him.
He’s amazing. There simply is no other word for him.
Such a humble and giving man and I continue to love him from the ears that are fighting for dominance on his head right down to his big feet!
The reason for this post is to apologise in advance for the spewing forth of everything Adam related over the next few months.
This past weekend saw the release of the teaser trailer for The Last Jedi that is due this December.
We finally got a glimpse of what Kylo’s scar is going to look like.
The Kylo snippets from the teaser were so tantalisingly quick it was frustrating.
So it’s now official, It’s out of the starting gate and all the hype leading up to the actual movie has officially started. There will be one, if not two more full trailers coming over the next few months followed by the press tours which mean a lot of new photos and interviews to enjoy!!
Adam also has another film due around the end of August.
Logan Lucky with Daniel Craig. In which, two brothers played by Adam Driver and Channing Tatum, attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina.
Adam Driver, Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig, Sebastian Stan and even Domhnall Gleeson’s little brother Brian Gleeson… all in one movie.
I’m hoping a trailer will be dropping for this one very soon!!
Along with interviews and press tour and photos.
So my apologies (although I’m not actually sorry) are for not shutting up about Adam for the foreseable future.
I will be posting interview snippets and every photo I can lay my hands on alongside trailers and film clips.
BRING…. IT…. ON!!!
And just so I can hopefully convert some of you to the god that is Adam, I also want to leave this here for you to look at.
This is what makes adam so special.
Forget Star Wars.
This is Adam’s first love. His charity, Arts in the Armed Forces.
His short lived experience as a Marine was their loss but our gain!!
