The Evolution of Santa in Movies Infographic

 

Christmas time is here once again, and if you’re a good little boy or girl, you’ve already got everyone on your list exactly what they wanted. Now that all the shopping is done, do you just kick back unentertained, drinking copious amounts of egg nog in silence? No… you spend the rest of December watching Christmas movies, of course!

Santa has always been a significant part of almost any Christmas movie: he has a specific concept of good and evil, he always prefers faith over skepticism, and he can even be duplicitous—is he out to help us or is he out for himself? The best Santa movies have these kinds of themes that get to the heart of our holiday mythos. On the other side of the [chocolate] coin, there are the Santa movies where he goes to Mars or he gets his sleigh stuck in the sandy beaches of Florida. No matter which type of Christmas film you prefer, we think you’ll enjoy this chronological look at Santa Claus’ cinematic exploits in this very merry infographic.

Star Wars Limb Loss Header

 

The Star Wars saga is filled with tons of visually dazzling battle scenes, the most common being lightsaber duels. The most popular weapon in the galaxy has been on full display many times during the films, and seeing as though its blade is a full-blown plasma beam, you better believe it can cut through anything. Therefore, a lot of lightsaber duels result in injury or even death due to dismemberment. Here's a look at each amputation in the Star Wars saga: who lost what at the hands of whom, and where...

Besides the dark, sloping helmet of Darth Vader, there are few things more villainous and iconic in the Star Wars universe than Boba Fett. Officially introduced in the second film of the original trilogy, The Empire Strikes Back, the rollout of Boba Fett to the already ravenous fandom in the late 1970s was a carefully orchestrated affair. Before the film, Fett appeared in cartoons, action figures, and even in a small-town parade. Lucasfilm clearly intended for Fett to be a memorable character. There is no stronger evidence to this fact than the many revisions the character went through before his debut in Empire. See how the galaxy’s most fearsome bounty hunter arrived at his influential look with this evolution of Boba Fett...

Katniss Evolution of Costumes

 

Let's be real about Katniss for a second: the girl can rock all kinds of looks. From combat boots to sky-high stilettos, she transforms from a tomboy to the belle of the ball in the blink of an eye. She even manages to look like a trendsetter in her mother's drab blue dress on the day of The Reaping. It's safe to say that jumpsuits are a staple in Katniss' closet because jumpsuits are both sporty and elegant, just like Katniss! We know that she'll wear the red battle suit in the final movie, but we're also wondering, what other outfits will the Girl on Fire unveil? Will there be more stunning jumpsuits? Will she wow us by wearing any more couture dresses from the Capitol? Will her trusty Mockingjay pin stay with her ‘til the very end? Our questions keep piling up as the anticipation mounts! It's safe to say that we are Hunger Games fanatics and we'll gladly admit that we're obsessed with Miss Everdeen's wardrobe. If you're just as pumped for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 as we are, take a look at our infographic. We hope that it will keep you satisfied until the release on Nov. 20th!

The Galaxy Far, Far Away: A Tour of the Star Wars Universe

 

The main Star Wars galaxy was much like our own Milky Way: one hundred-thousand light years across with hundreds of millions of stars. And also like ours, many of those stars had planetary systems, some habitable or otherwise useful. (Mining natural resources, for example, or hiding children from their Sith Lord fathers.) You may know them from the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, or even the new Battlefront video game. So without further a-dewback - yes, that happened - let’s travel from the Core World of Coruscant through the most iconic Mid Rim and Outer Rim...
