Josh Mantonelli writes: Just wondering on your thoughts about Simon Pegg’s Star Wars prequel rant today. Yes, you’re allowed an opinion, but I find it quite disrespectful that LucasFilm or Disney would allow this guy to have any involvement with the franchise considering his continued attacks on George Lucas. He’s had too many strikes. Time to stand up for GL who gave us something we cherish so much. Especially when the guy spreading so much hate is one of the Star Trek: Into Darkness crew, a film that is on par with Attack of the Clones. Anyways Thanks and keep up the good work!

Taylor Huston writes: Hey guys! Love the show so much. Thank for all that you do. I have a question involving the movie Serenity. With Joss Whedon having become more popular than ever due to his work on the Avengers movies, do you think that Serenity came out at the wrong time? A part of me feels that most of the reason why Serenity failed at the box office is because Whedon wasn’t as well-known back then as he is today, and that if the movie had been made after his time with the Avengers, then it could have gotten more attention and maybe even made a sequel possible. What are your thoughts on this?

Tyler Hall writes: Hi guys. Thanks for being part of my daily routine! What do you think is the ideal running time for a trailer? I know teasers are shorter, but if they wanted to, could a movie release a 7-10 minute trailer? Or would it be against some trailer regulations?

Tyler Owens writes: Hello Collider Crew, Thank you for all that you guys do. I writing about that you guys just reporting on the new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer more than likely being attached to Star Wars Episode 7. I know you have talked about a lot of times that it doesn’t matter if a trailer is attached to a movie because it’ll be online a couple days before, but I think it does play a big deal because what about all the people who aren’t that plugged into the movie community like we are and are just learning about this movie when they are watching Star Wars. Thanks so much!
