    Kathleen Kennedy Says 'Star Wars' Spinoff Characters Won't Tie Into Main Saga, J.J. Abrams Says No IMAX For Ep. 7

    Even as we're in the mix of the awards and festival season, at the end of the day, while prestige is nice, money is actually something you can hold on to and put into the bank. And as such, the focus at the major studios still tends to be on their tentpoles and blockusters, and increasingly these da...
