When George Lucas’ Star Wars premiered in 1977, the movie quickly became a phenomenon. On its 40th anniversary, The Onion looks back on the franchise’s defining moments:
AUSTIN, TX—Actor Matthew McConaughey announced Tuesday that he has accepted a 6, maybe $7 million offer to star in Whatever. "I'm happy to do Whatever. You know I'm easy, brother," McConaughey said of his upcoming role as a laid-back dude. "As long as the beer is cold and I can take my shirt off, I'm in. Well, all right." Whatever, slated for release either late this year or next, will be directed by this one guy with whom McConaughey has worked before, and will also star Kate Hudson.
