Tommy Lee Jones, over the course of his career, has played the stoic bureaucrat who has had to stop our hero (be it Will Smith, Harrison Ford or Chris Evans) from saving the day. Now, he.s putting Matt Damon in his eyesights as part of the still-unnamed Jason Bourne sequel, with Paul Greengrass at the helm. Variety reports that Tommy Lee Jones has joined the next Bourne adventure, co-starring alongside Matt Damon, who returns to the series after sitting out 2012.s The Bourne Legacy. The trade notes that Jones will play "a superior officer at the CIA," which puts him at the tail end of a long line of character actors playing stuffed shirts in the Bourne series, including the great Joan Allen, Brian Cox, David Strathairn, Scott Glenn, Albert Finney, Chris Cooper and Stacy Keach. Seriously, that.s an amazing repertory of angry, bitter old actors who hate »
One Star Wars fan has gone to great lengths to show how much the beloved film series has changed over the years.
The changes go as far as back as the beginning of the series, when different versions of Episode IV were sent out to theatres, and further changes have come in the years that followed.
With each home video release, Lucas made alterations, some more noticeable than others. YouTuber Mercelo Zuniga has put together a definitive guide to the changes in an hour-long series of videos.
Simon Pegg can't say a thing about his character in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but he has quite a bit to say about his experience shooting the film - and his own Star Wars geekdom. We first caught a glimpse of a partially costumed Pegg in the latest footage from the franchise reboot, which debuted at Comic-Con earlier this month. So, when we chatted with the actor just a few days ago in Vienna, where he was premiering Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, we asked if he could tell us anything about his character. He couldn't. Well, could he give us a single adjective to describe him? Nope. Ok, so could he tell us what it was really like to be on the set? Thankfully, yes. "I mean, seeing it for the first time [as a kid] and coming out and being so utterly changed by it, it was »
Star Wars famously takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, and this week we found out about a parallel universe of casting in the film series. Neil Calloway looks at the actors who didn’t star in films, but could have…
The news that Michael Jackson wanted to play Jar Jar Binks in the Star Wars prequels is bizarre, and I can’t quite decide whether he would have improved the character or completely ruined the franchise with his appearance. Perhaps the most interesting part is that Jackson wanted the character to be created with make up and prosthetics – he worked with make up genius Rick Baker on the video for Thriller – rather than the CGI preferred by Lucas. There are many, many issues with the Star Wars prequels, but one of them is the over reliance on computer effects on practical effects. So maybe »

'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always »

The closing chapter of the Lethal Weapon movie saga was a film that, tonally, was a long way away from the movie that started the series.
In the original Lethal Weapon back in 1987, the character of Martin Riggs - as played by Mel Gibson - was on the verge of suicide, working uneasily alongside Danny Glover's Roger Murtaugh. By the end of Lethal Weapon 4, as the song Why Can't We Be Friends played out, it was all happy families. With babies. Riggs had a wife and child, any hints of suicide were long gone, and the film feels a lot more like a comedy than an action thriller.
Another San Diego Comic-Con International has come and gone. This year was a great year for films, friends, and fun! Check out my Top 10 cinematic moments from this years con. Also, be sure to share your favorite moments from this year. I’d love to hear from you! Now, let’s get started!
Let me start off by saying that I have not been looking forward to this film. I’m not stoked on the new batsuit, and disagree with their casting of Lex Luthor, simply because I feel as though the character should be older. Having said that, this is the best trailer that I have seem thus far, and I really hope that they prove me wrong. Check out the all new trailer that debuted in Hall H and let me know what you think!

Last week, a news story on Fox News broke out about a parent who was upset about Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Figure series toy of Princess Leia from Return of the Jedi in her “Slave Leia” outfit. The story was picked up on several news outlets, which has now prompted Leia herself Carrie Fisher to giver her thoughts on the matter.
Taking to Twitter, Fisher didn’t understand why the outfit has caused controversy now when it didn’t “40 years ago” and that while she did have a chain round her neck, she used it to kill the creature than enslaved her.
You can check out Fisher’s badly worded tweets below:

Brooding former Wolfman and expert mumbler Benicio Del Toro dipped his toe into intergalactic waters via Guardians Of The Galaxy. But if director Rian Johnson has his way, he’ll be consolidating his cosmic status with a part in Star Wars Episode VIII.
Disney have enough on their plate keeping Episode VII under wraps in the run up to its release in December, but as the next chapter begins casting the star’s name has reportedly been thrown in the ring.
While it would be easy to assume he’s going to be wanted for the Dark Side of the Force… well, actually it’s not likely he’s playing an Ewok is it, so odds are he’ll be Sithing it up alongside cast members Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.

Even though Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still more than five months away, casting is beginning for the follow-up chapter, Star Wars: Episode VIII. Sources tell THR that Benicio Del Toro is a contender for a role, likely that of a villain, for the Lucasfilm/Disney movie, which will be directed by Rian Johnson. Del Toro is said to have an offer, although whether a deal can be made remains unclear. Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac and John Boyega are expected to return for the movie, as are certain legacy actors (Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill). The release date is

Star Wars: The Force Awakens made a huge splash at Comic-Con last week, debuting an amazing behind-the-scenes video before bringing out the entire main cast in Hall H. Director J.J. Abrams confirmed that the new trailer won't debut until sometime this fall. While we wait for that footage to arrive, star John Boyega revealed an intriguing new photo on his Instagram account. The photo features the actor in full costume as Finn, brandishing a unique new blaster, alongside everyone's favorite Wookie, Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew). There will be potential Spoilers that follow, so read on at your own risk.
The photo was originally leaked online as part of a Russian Lego catalog, but the image was promptly removed before it re-surfaced on John Boyega's Instagram page. The photo offers a look at what appears to be the new Stormtrooper blaster, which has been upgraded significantly from the original Star Wars trilogy, »

In the days leading into Comic-Con, Star Wars: The Force Awakens fans got some rather disheartening news. There would be no new trailer or footage from the movie shown during the massive Hall H panel on Friday night. Some thought it was all a ruse. "How could they hold a Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel, on Star Wars Day (traditionally every Friday at Sdcc), and Not show new footage?" Someone probably said and/or thought in the aftermath of this crushing news. Fans were assured that the panel would still be insightful and entertaining, and, guess what? Those assurances were not false by any means. It's true, director J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy and writer Lawrence Kasdan didn't unveil a new trailer or any actual footage from the movie itself, but they did reveal a fascinating behind-the-scenes video that shed plenty of new light on the production. »
Leaked pictures from two new Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lego sets have revealed new characters who will appear in the film.
Star Wars Lego site From Bricks To Bothans posted a few images of two upcoming sets: Poe’s X-Wing Fighter and the Millennium Falcon.
For the Millennium Falcon set, a list of minifigures included are shown at the bottom of the box. While most of the minifigures are already known characters, such as Han Solo, Chewbacca, Finn, Rey and Bb-8, two never before seen characters are also part of the set. The first of which is an anonymous Kanjiklub gang member, and the other is a character named Tasu Leech.
The images of the X-Wing set show that droid Bb-8 is probably »

Fans have been trying to piece the Star Wars: The Force Awakens story together ever since it was announced way back in 2012. The film is finally complete, with a finished edit of the movie. And still, after all this time, we only have a very vague outline, cobbled together from two trailers, a number of photos and behind-the-scenes information from director J.J. Abrams and his cast and crew. While Disney and Lucasfilm has been quite liberal in dolling out images of an aging Han Solo and Chewbacca, played once again by Harrison Ford and Peter Mayhew, there is very little we know about their personal history over the course of the last thirty years, since we last saw them in 1983's Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi.
Even though the Rebel Alliance succeeded in blowing up the Death Star and defeating the evil galactic Emperor, the »
