Star Wars Day: From A New Hope to The Rise of Skywalker, the Correct Chronological Order to Binge-Watch Major SW Movies as Per Timeline

May 4 has arrived, and as every geek knows, it is Star Wars Day! And most of the geeks should also know this that May 4 has nothing to do with any of the movies that’s about space warfare happening in a galaxy far far away or with its creator George Lucas! It’s only the ‘May the 4th’ sounds similar to the iconic Star Wars phrase ‘May The Force (Be With You)’ so the date has been celebrated as Star Wars Day. Star Wars Day 2020: Date, History And Significance of the Franchise and Why They Say ‘May The 4th Be With You!’.

While most of us might be home quarantive why not use the occasion to binge-watch all the major Star Wars movies? With a fun twist that is! Instead of watching them as per their release – i.e. from A New Hope to last year’s The Rise of Skywalker – let’s watch them as per the timeline in which these movies fit themselves in the Star Wars lore. Ready?

Sunny Leone Birthday Special: From Aahat to Mega Scorpions, 4 ‘Scream Queen’ Movie Appearances of the Diva You Surely Missed! (LatestLY Exclusive)

Sunny Leone Birthday Special: From Aahat to Mega Scorpions, 4 ‘Scream Queen’ Movie Appearances of the Diva You Surely Missed! (LatestLY Exclusive)

The incredibly beautiful Leone is an actress, a philanthropist, a working mother, and a movie producer. She started her career an actress in porn industry, and then thanks to a stint in a season of Bigg Boss, Sunny, originally named Karenjit Kaur Vohra, found mainstream acceptance in Bollywood, getting to play the main lead in Pooja Bhatt’s Jism 2. The movie was a big success, and Sunny Leone went on to deliver a bigger hit in Ragini MMS 2.  Special: These Cute Family Pictures Of the Actress With Daniel, Nisha, Noah and Asher Are Frame-worthy!

Now you might remember Ragini MMS 2 for the “Baby Doll” song and its horrex (“horror+sex”) formula. This was also Sunny Leone’s first horror film, thus making her a legit Scream Queen, later appearing as a cameo in the sequel series Ragini MMS Returns. But this franchise is not her only horror quotient.

On the occasion of Sunny Leone’s birthday, we look at her more obscure Scream Queen appearances that you probably missed!

Aahat

Do you remember Sunny Leone appearing in a special episode of the SET show Aahat? She played an actress named Leila who finds herself stalked by a Freddy Krueger like entity in the reboot take of the iconic horror series. Sunny Leone Birthday Special: A Versatile Style Capsule of Her Chic, Glamorous and Ethno-Cool Moments From Homegrown Labels!

I Eat Your Skin

This 2019 Australian horror film feels more like a movie shot on hand-held camera with some very bad acting. Here’s what the IMDB premise reads for the film – “A group of international photographers journey to photograph a rare bird in the Philippines. When one of them finds a corpse clutching a strange talisman, he becomes host to a vengeful spirit and begins to prey on his fellow travelers.” But there is an even bizarre story about this. This movie is a recycled version of an old adult movie of the actress called Black Shama, that was made even before Leone entered Bollywood!

Pirate’s Blood

An Indo-American production, this horror adventure thriller has a mix of Indian and American actors, and is about a vengeful pirate’s ghost and a treasure trail. Sunny Leone is one of the treasure seekers, and the movie sees her getting stripped a couple of times, trying to seduce her disinterested partner and then killed by a zombie.

Mega Scorpions

A pretty B-grade creature flick the genre which we usually watch downing a few beers, Mega Scorpions is about a bunch of scorpions who grow monstrously big and kill a bunch of humans. Sunny Leone appears towards the rear end of the film, in the epilogue and she doesn’t last really long. Credited in IMDB as ‘Hot Tub Hussy’, her brief appearance involves appearing in a towel, disrobing herself to appear nude and then get killed brutally by a scorpion.
