Movie power rankings: 'Star Wars' rules the galaxy once again
Where do 'Skyfall,' 'Flight' and 'Terminator' end up?
Now...witness the power of this fully armed and operational film franchise. With news and rumors flooding in pretty much everyday, "Star Wars" is all Hollywood seems to be thinking about ever since it was announced that Disney bought Lucasfilm and was going ahead with "Episode VII." Now that Oscar-winning screenwriter Michael Arndt ("Little Miss Sunsine," "Toy Story 3") is in charge of the trilogy treatment, rumors continue to fly about who will direct the first installment. Matthew Vaughn ("X-Men: First Class") and Colin Trevorrow ("Safety Not Guaranteed") are among the names rumored to be under consideration and less likely names such as J.J. Abrams and Brad Bird are also in the rumor mill. Whatever happens, expect Han, Luke, Leia and the rest of your rebel friends to dominate Movie Power Rankings for a long time.
