Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s theatrical release is just a few days away on December 20th, and there’s been plenty of promotional items released, but none as cool-looking as these Coca-Cola bottles, which feature Rey and Kylo Ren. Not just any bottles, these have lightsabers that illuminate when the labels are touched, thanks to flexible OLEDs.
A total of 21 vehicles from the person collection of the late Paul Walker is headed to Barrett-Jackson’s 49th Annual Scottsdale Auction that runs from January 11-19, 2020. They include a Nissan GT-R R32 race car, 1995 Ford Bronco, and a large collection of BMW M3s, including five 1995 BMW M3 Lightweights of which only 125 were ever made. Walker is best know for playing Brian O’Connor in the legendary Fast and the Furious franchise.

Manufactured by John DeLorean’s DeLorean Motor Company from 1981 through 1983, the DMC-12, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, is best known for its gull-wing doors, brushed stainless-steel outer body panels, and fiberglass body structure with a steel backbone chassis. However, many auto enthusiasts were disappointed with its lack of power and performance, that is until…after 1985 when it became immortalized as a time machine in the Back to the Future movies.
Released in 1999, “The Matrix” is a science fiction film directed and written by the Wachowskis. It starred Keanu Reeves as Neo and takes place in a dystopian future with most of the population locked away in a virtual reality created by artificial being to distract humans while using their bodies as an energy source. One thing you may not have known is that Will Smith was originally the first choice to play Neo, but had to turn down the role to make “Wild Wild West”. Thanks to deepfake technology, we can now see what he would have looked like in the film.
