It was all the way back in the first half of June when Harrison Ford had a bit of an accident on-board the Millennium Falcon while shooting Star Wars: Episode VII. Thanks to a malfunctioning hydraulic door, the legendary actor broke his foot, and reports said that he would possibly be off his feet for as many as eight weeks. This was very obviously bad news for the cast and crew of the upcoming sci-fi epic - but the good news is that Ford is now on the mend. The folks at the New York Daily News have gotten their hands on a photograph of Harrison Ford in Santa Monica, California walking without either a cast on his leg nor crutches under his arms. While there was a bandage around his ankle, the actor was seen getting into the pilot seat of his personal helicopter and apparently wasn't walking with »
When he first learned about the Marvel superhero flick Guardians of the Galaxy, Peter Travers reflexively reached for his handy Scum Bucket. But now our trusted critic is eating his own words, saying the film "might be the most fun I've had so far this summer at any movie."
The Rise of 'Guardians of the Galaxy's Rocket Raccoon
In his latest video review, Travers can barely hold back his giddiness when talking about Guardians, a surprisingly fun and hilarious adaptation of the comic franchise that he dubs "the orphan child of Marvel. »

Just another rote space adventure. It’s not actively awful, but there isn’t a single damn thing in the least bit surprising or memorable about it. I’m “biast” (pro): love the Marvel films
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
I know: Blasphemy!
But look: It’s a bunch of 80s stuff jammed up into a package that’s only just barely distinguishable from its progenitors, and only that thanks to “awesome” CGI FX that can cram more crap onscreen than your brain knows what to do with. Okay: that’s some 90s and early 2000s stuff, via George Lucas and his Add approach to “awesome,” which has no focus and no point and considers those lacks a virtue becauselook at all the spaceships! »

Pegg was spotted on the Star Wars set in Abu Dhabi last month, while his Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Benedict Cumberbatch seemingly hinted at San Diego Comic-Con that the Hot Fuzz actor might appear in Abrams's new film.
Asked about the rumours, Pegg told Vulture: "Well, Jj uses me in different roles, and we're good friends.
"The film is cleverly cast with these amazing, unknown actors."

Harrison Ford broke his ankle in mid-June, forcing the Star Wars: Episode VII schedule to shuffle Ford's scenes to the latter end of principle photography. Ford has been healing well but should have about another month of recovery left. A recent photo via @PaulRMQ shows that he's now off of crutches and looking healthy. (Found on Jedi News)

Despite the fact that J.J. Abrams stated he wouldn’t be casting any Star Trek alumni in Star Wars: Episode VII, we’ve heard on a few occasions that Simon Pegg is set for a “secret role” in the hotly-anticipated first chapter of Disney’s sequel trilogy.
Pegg was reported to have visited the Dubai set to film his scene(s), and over the weekend his Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Benedict Cumberbatch apparently confirmed the Cornetto Trilogy star’s involvement during an interview at Comic-Con. Well, Pegg has now responded to those rumours during an interview with Vulture:
“J.J. uses me in different roles, and we’re good friends. I feel like my face in Star Wars would pop people out of the movie. Look, I love Star Wars, and I don’t want people to watch and go, Oh, there’s Simon Pegg’s face. The film »

During a Comic-Con interview with MTV last week, Benedict Cumberbatch hinted that his Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Simon Pegg has a mystery role in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII, adding to the numerous, unconfirmed rumors about this highly-anticipated production. Here's what Benedict Cumberbatch had to say below, when asked if he himself had been seriously considered for a role.
"J.J. and I are friends, so yeah, possibly. But I think J.J. is very good at creating something original out of something known, and I think apart from his continuing use of Simon Pegg - and who can blame him, frankly - it made sense not to do it."
Naturally, Simon Pegg's role has not been confirmed yet by Disney or LucasFilm, but last night, Vulture caught up with Simon Pegg, who would not confirm nor deny rumors of his Star Wars: Episode VII involvement. »
A few days ago it was reported that Star Wars: Episode VII was heading to the stormy shores in the South West of Ireland, specifically the secluded island of Skellig Michael, approximately 12km off the coast of County Kerry. Rumours ran rampant – like every single thread of Episode VII news – about who or what was going to be filmed.
It’s thought to be a second unit but that doesn’t mean that some of the big names won’t be making an appearance. Last night a few images popped up online of the production crew setting up, take a look below.
And while there’s is no actual pictures of J.J.Abrams or any of the original trilogy cast, some of the Hamill family have been captures on camera. Below are Mark Hamill’s wife Marilou, daughter Chelsea and two sons Griffin and Nathan arriving at Portmagee harbour. »

Chris Pratt’s always been a great actor, but with Guardians of the Galaxy, he’s suddenly become a legitimate movie star, playing the coolest intergalactic rogue to grace movie screens since Harrison Ford last wore striped trousers and a waistcoat.
We recently caught up with Pratt at the junket for Guardians of the Galaxy, where we discussed his newfound success, The Guardians’ place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and ‘maniac’ James Gunn’s vision.
Guardians of the Galaxy is released this Wednesday in the UK, you can see our 4* review here and all our coverage of the movie here including Premiere interviews and the press conference in full.

San Diego — After years of false starts, Daniel Radcliffe finally made it to Comic-Con. The "Harry Potter" star was never able to physically make it to the massive pop culture festival while shooting the iconic film series because their production always conflicted with the convention's July dates. The 25-year-old actor doesn't necessarily have more free time on his hand these days, but he made his inaugural visit to talk about his upcoming fantasy thriller "Horns." Radcliffe took some time to speak to HitFix about his new movie, his first Comic-Con and a "never say never" in the video interview at the top of this post. What was most surprising was Radcliffe's initial revelation that he'd already explored the convention but in costume. "I went around as Spider-Man and took some photos with people," Radcliffe admits. "It was quite fun. It was like that and Halloween are the only time I »

“It was certainly unexpected,” he said. “I already had a beginning, middle and end. I never thought we’d come back.”
The legendary actor also said he was thrilled to step foot on “sets that evoked so many memories.”
“I thought even if they did a third trilogy, we wouldn’t be involved because it is really about the new generation of characters,” he said.
When the franchise was revived in 2002, Skywalker was only seen as a toddler in “Revenge of the Sith.”

In the non-stop madness that is Comic-Con, many American journalists missed an intriguing revelation from the UK premiere of "Guardians of Galaxy" on Thursday. Mr. Mark Hamill has a very scraggly beard. Hamill, as you most likely know, is in London to shoot "Star Wars: Episode VII" and - shockingly - Disney let him run wild on the "Guardians" red carpet. And, of course he spilled some details about the new movie, joking that the beard was "contractually obligated" and that he's thinking of asking the actors playing a "new generation of characters" for advice. Hamill's beard was also front and center on Friday at Comic-Con when he made a surprise appearance in a video during 20th Century Fox's Hall H presentation. The 62-year-old actor helped director Matthew Vaughn, supposedly stuck in London because he's sick, introduce a clip from the new spy thriller "Kingsman: The Secret Service." Hamill plays Prof. »
