Have you ever wondered what you would look like suiting up in the good ol' white and black of an Imperial Stomtrooper? Short of the buying your own suit—the going rate is between $500 and $700 on eBay—or an above average Photoshop job, there are few ways to get that authentic Stormtrooper feeling.
But now (via io9), you have a chance to create a Stormtrooper action figure with your very own face. At Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida for a limited time, you can purchase a 3-D printed Stormtrooper action figure modeled off of a scan of your face. The figure will cost you $100 and about 10 minutes of your time to complete the 3-D face scan. (No matter how excited you might be, try not to smile too much. Stormtroopers have to be serious.)
The offer only lasts for a limited time. You'll have to get to Hollywood Studios during "Star Wars" Weekends 2013, which are the weekends of May 17, May 24, May 31, and June 7.
The viral campaign for the new season of "Arrested Development" is picking up steam, and today Ron Howard tweeted out the sweetest morsel yet. Tobias Fünke has created a series of green screen videos for an internet audition tape.
According to the doctor-actor, these audition videos will give directors like James Cameron the opportunity to see him, like his acting, and simply insert Tobias anywhere that he pleases.
Check out the audition reel after the jump!
Be sure to check out his official site, where Tobias also shows off a few different characters like an action hero and a cowboy, so that he can be inserted in a wide variety of places. There's also an ad on the site for a juice company that Tobias did an ad for. ManGo juice is "like having a Mango in your mouth."
The new season of "Arrested Development" premieres all at once on Netflix on May 26.
"This Is The End" is shaping up to be one of the most insane movies of 2013, and also one of the ones we're most excited for. The cast of the film tease what craziness lie in wait for unsuspecting viewers in a new featurette for the movie.
"It's really a movie about the group dynamic between friends," Seth Rogen said. "But what it's really about is the end of the world happens and a bunch of friends barricade themselves in a house together, and then all their problems kind of come to the surface."
We are now outrageously close to the premiere of a whole new season of "Arrested Development" on Netflix. As you prepare to binge watch all 15 episodes in one sitting, more sneak peeks have popped up online as the stars promote the new episodes.
Portia De Rossi stopped by Jimmy Fallon last night to talk about "Arrested Development" and share a clip from the new season it. In it, we see Ed Helms return as the real estate agent who Lindsay tried to seduce in the show's original run. Based on this clip and the preview we saw earlier in the week, thing are looking good for the Bluths.
The new season of "Arrested Development" goes live on Netflix on May 26.
Like most summer tentpole movies, the promotional material for "After Earth," the upcoming sci-fi adventure starring the father-son duo of Will and Jaden Smith, has focused almost squarely on the action elements of the film. Essentially, it's been a lot of space ship crashes and Jaden Smith running through the jungle away from highly evolved human killers.
While director M. Night Shyamalan's hot streak is more than a decade in the rear-view mirror, there was a time when he excelled at putting quieter moments on the screen, in between shocking revelations. In the first clip from "After Earth," we get such a moment that drives home the stakes of the film.
Jaden's character Kitai Raige must retrieve a homing beacon from the tail end of their crashed ship, since it appears that his father, the perfectly name Cypher Raige, is unable to.
International man of mystery boxes J.J. Abrams stopped by "The Daily Show" to have a little chat with Jedi hopeful Jon Stewart last night, and the late night host was able to pry some actual information from the secretive director.
The two geeked out over both "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" during the two parts of an extended interview, and during the most interesting part of the segment, Abrams shared his perspective on how the two series differed. "'Star Trek' was overtly an allegory of today, where 'Star Wars' always felt like more of an epic. It didn't even feel like science fiction to me, which sounds crazy, but 'Star Wars' never felt like a sci-fi thing, where 'Star Trek' did," he said. "We tried to make a 'Star Trek' movie that doesn't suffer from—. The original show was static because they couldn't afford to go anywhere or do anything. We had a slightly larger budget."
From the sounds of it, Abrams views the two properties as inherently different, so this should come as welcome news to those who feared that there would be too much overlap between the diametrically opposed franchises and fan bases.

"As I Lay Dying," James Franco's adaptation of the classic William Faulkner novel, is all set for its Cannes debut, but you can get a sneak preview thanks to the first trailer, which premiered online today.
Also, it's the "Casino Royale" opening as told in Legos in today's Dailies!
To create this sparkling version of the 1920s in "The Great Gatsby," director Baz Luhrmann dove deep into history to discover how that world could possibly speak to the audiences of today. Part of that research has been made available on an interactive web site, but there's still more to come.
We have an exclusive look at some of the yet-to-be released chapters, which includes an extensive studio of 1920s slang terms and never-before-seen photos.
Kristen Wiig made a welcome return to "Saturday Night Live" as the host of this past weekend's episode. Aside from reprising some of her favorite characters, Wiig starred in some original segments that made it really apparent how much we miss her.
The stand-out from the group was obviously "Aw, Nuts! Mom's A Ghost," a commercial for a new show on the Disney Channel. In the sketch, Wiig plays mom to the show's two rambunctious leads, who just so happens to die a terrible death in Korean, only to return as a water ghost.
We'll let the video above take it from there. Come back, Kristen, America misses you!
There are two things you should know about "The Kings of Summer," if you haven't already heard of it. First, back when it was called "Toy's House" at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, it was a huge crowd pleaser and one of the favorites of Park City.
Second, it stars some serious comedy talent that you might know from NBC's Thursday night line-up, including the awesome husband-wife duo of Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally from "Parks and Recreation" and Alison Brie from "Community."
In this exclusive clip from the film, which opens in theaters on May 31, Offerman and Brie play a father and daughter, who get some Chinese take-out. Much to the chagrin of Offerman's character, the wontons that come with the food are too big to eat, leading to a confrontation with the delivery man.
The preview gives you a quick look at the brand of humor working here and a better idea of why "The Kings of Summer" won over so many audience members at Sundance.
