Another great week over here at the Moviepilot office! We've been kept very busy with all the casting news and analysing the Star Wars: Episode VII teaser (rolling robots!).
Due to the great feedback we received last week about the weekly wrap up we've decided to follow up with the best posts of this week (as voted by your Community Team) which you may have missed!
1 - Throwback Thursday in Middle Earth
1977 was a simpler time. The first Apple computers were for sale, A BMW cost $8000 and The Hobbit was an animated movie. Long time MP contributor Jordan Redding has put together a great comparison post with a then and now of all your favourite characters from The Hobbit. Smaug has probably changed the least.

5 - The Great DC Universe Theory
We've got awesome fan theory from Iron Angel about recently cast Suicide Squad and their influence on Dawn of Justice. This post gets very deep into the text and is meticulously researched so make sure you know your DC lineup before commenting!

6 - More Heartbreak for Bond?
Pablo Cuevas is sensing a lot of foreboding from the teaser for Spectre and, honestly, he seems to be onto something. If you've seen On Her Majesty's Secret Service, you may see a couple parallels with the trailer.

7 - Paddington Bear is Back, But Not in the Way You'd Think.
Matthais has brought us the mash up we didn't know we needed, blending the childhood favourite with the Terminator Genisys trailer. However strange you find it, please keep in mind that it is for (in the creators own words) for educational purposes only.

10 - Real Life Badassery
Start your weekend right by reading about legendary lady spy, Phyllis Doyle, who was an inspiration for Marvels own Peggy Carter. Doyle parachuted behind enemy lines for revenge, I don't want to give too much away, but, basically, you will never be as cool as this lady.
