Director J.J. Abrams recently revealed that the upcoming sequel "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will limit the film's relationship with the six previous chapters and will only include some "essential" references to move on with Episode 7.
"We used to have more references to things that we pulled out because they almost felt like they were trying too hard to allude to something. I think that the key is—and whether we've accomplished that or not is, of course, up to the audience—but the key is that references be essential so that you don't reference a lot of things that feel like, oh, we're laying pipe for, you know, an animated series or further movies," Abrams told Vanity Fair.
"It should feel like things are being referenced for a reason," he went on to say. more >>

On this week's episode of "NCIS: New Orleans," Baitfish murders someone close to the NCIS team to send a message to Pride, prompting a citywide manhunt for the elusive criminal.
At Chris' house, he discovers that his girlfriend, Savannah, has been shot and killed. He tells Pride that he went out to buy some wine and when he came back, he found her dead on the kitchen floor. Loretta and Merri work on the body, and Merri tells Pride that they have found Paul Jinx's—aka Baitfish—fingerprint on the body.
Loretta tells Pride that the body has been dragged to the window, and at first Pride puzzles over this, and when he figures it out, he shouts at everyone to get down, and someone outside opens fire on the team. Chris runs outside to look for the shooter, but all he finds is an abandoned AK-47. more >>
This week on "NCIS," the NCIS cyber case turns into a united global effort after evidence confirms "The Calling," an international terrorist group that recruits children through the internet, has been getting S-bombs off the black market.
Last week, the team investigated the murder of Navy Ensign Janine Wilt, who was killed after she blocked a chat room to protect a high school student. That student, Brad Simek, was tracked down by the team on a bus with a homemade bomb. Gibbs almost talked him out of it, but the boy ran to the back of the bus and the bomb exploded.
The show starts with Bishop and McGee blaming themselves because they think that the incident could have been prevented if they were able to track down Brad sooner. Ducky examines Brad's body and finds a tattoo on his arm. Gibbs sees a young boy, and when he makes eye contact with Gibbs, the boy runs away. more >>
If there's anything that we have learned so far on "Dancing With the Stars" this season, it's the fact that no one is guaranteed to be safe. After Willow Shields' shocking elimination last week, fans now know that it's not enough to have high scores—votes make a huge difference as to who stays and who goes in the competition. This Tuesday was a tension-filled night for the celebrity contestants as two weeks of combined scores and viewer votes came together to determine the fate of the remaining six couples.
After a reprise of Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy's perfect scoring Paso Doble, the frontrunner was the first to find out that she was safe.
"I feel like we kind of figured out that going classical is our forte," said Willis. "So I hope that I can just keep improving on that." more >>
