Welcome to another week! Because it’s a few short weeks until the end of the year, we have a retrospective for you today, with more to come in the next few posts, along with behind-the-scenes footage from Creed, a farewell to Deadspin, hypothetical casting of a perfect Christmas movie, an interview with Carrie Fisher, and more:

  • First, check out a 2015 retrospective from Ben Zuk at /Film.
  • If you’re excited about the new film Creed and want more of it, ScreenSlam released eleven minutes of raw, behind-the-scenes footage from the critical darling, boxing film.
  • Two of our favorite working critics, Tim Grierson and Will Leitch, bid a fond farewell to Deadspin.com, where the pair worked for four years, providing influential, entertaining, and cutting edge work.  We’re excited to see what Grierson and Lietch bring to their new home, The New Republic.
  • Jenna and Allie of Flick Chicks offer their ideas for casting their dream Christmas movie using existing movie characters. Head on over to their film blog to share your ideas and read other awesome movie conversations.
  • Finally, Carrie Fisher’s interview with Good Morning America is a reminder of why we should all bow down at Princess Leia’s feet.

Check back next week for more of the best movie stuff from the rest of the Internet!
