It's Finn and a Lightsaber!

The Star Wars hype train just keeps chugging along as another teaser for The Force Awakens has been released. And it was on Instagram of all places showcasing a few new scenes, chief among them, newcomer John Boyega as Finn wielding a lightsaber.

A video posted by Star Wars (@starwars) on

And here's a look at those new scenes.

A new look at the First Order as some high ranking officials look out over their massive army of Stormtroopers.

A new shot of Daisy Ridley as Rey looking back in shock with BB-8 in the background.

The all too familiar Kylo Ren and his much debated tri-blade lightsaber make a return appearance.

But this time it looks like Finn is in the forest ready to fight him with his own lightsaber. Or maybe since it's blue, it's the Skywalker lightsaber? Who knows?

Man, what a tease... Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens December 18th.

Connecticut ComiCONN 2015

This past weekend I went to Connecticut ComiCONN. Last year, it was a one day event at Webster Bank Arena. This year, they expanded to three days at Mohegan Sun, and it was a great decision. While the convention itself has gotten much larger, it's still not the utter crowded chaos that New York Comic Con is, and that ultimately is a good thing. It was a well organized event and Mohegan Sun is an excellent venue. I'll admit, by midday Saturday, I was getting kind of "conned-out." But I took a breather in the casino, played some slots, had a couple of drinks, and after that I was ready to head back in. I guess you can't really nerd out for three days straight. So here are some of the highlights of my Connecticut ComiCONN experience.

It's the Batmobile! The car from the 1966 series was on display along with a few cardboard cutouts of the Dynamic Duo.

Deadpool Teaser Trailer

The Deadpool teaser trailer brings teaser trailers to another level. Not showing anything from the actual movie, it's just Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool sitting in a chair narrating that the actual trailer is coming out tomorrow. But he does it in such a Deadpool way by taking a shot at Ryan Reynolds himself and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, that you just have to see it to believe it.
