Believe it or not, the "Star Wars
" hype machine is just getting warmed up. The latest wave of rumors, teases and promotion is just the beginning of what you'll be hearing about the series over the next few years. Much of the latest buzz surrounds the fact that Disney seems intent on not just creating a new trilogy -- starting with the J.J. Abrams-directed "Episode VII" -- but also expanding the franchise to include stand alone films. Can fans really expect spin-off movies focusing on such beloved OT characters as Han Solo and Boba Fett? It would appear so

As for the rest of this week's list...
February 16, 2013
1. "Star Wars" (Last week: Not ranked)
2. "Identity Thief" (Last week: Not ranked)
Neither bad reviews nor blizzards could stop the Melissa McCarthy comedy from a $34 million opening
What we know is that most of "The Avengers"
and the cast of "Chicago" are reuniting for the big night. What we still aren't sure about is who will win in certain key categories.
4. "Argo" (Last week: Not ranked)
Are "Breaking Bad's" Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen ("Martha Marcy May Marlene") joining Aaron Johnson
in the latest spin on the atomic age monster movie?
Warner Bros. hasn't exactly taken the easy route in bringing the DC superhero team to the big screen, and the latest word is that the film needs a new writer
after the studio decided to axe the version by Will Beall ("Gangster Squad") . That can't be a good sign.
This is just getting ridiculous. Is Benedict Cumberbatch playing Khan
10. "A Million Ways to Die in the West" (Last week: Not ranked)
Although neither one is know for comedy, Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried are joining
Seth McFarlane's comedy western.
