David Fincher Reveals Why He Didn't Direct 'Star Wars 7'

16 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 2012, many names were rumored for the covet job of directing Star Wars: Episode VII. And one of those names was David Fincher. Doing press for his thriller Gone Girl this past week, the director confirms that he actually did take a meeting with Kathleen Kennedy, saying that he considered the job for a split second, but ultimately passed.

Talking with Total Film, David Fincher describes his experiences with Disney and Lucasfilm, his idea for the movie, and why he decided he wasn't a right fit for this universe.

David Fincher wanted to make another movie that looked like Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. It would have been dark in tone. And it would have been told through the eyes of droids C3PO and R2D2, whom he views as slaves.

David Fincher reveals for the first time:

27 September 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will Han, Luke and Leia be returning to Endor? That sounds more and more likely as a new report reveals a huge fight sequence took place in the forest. Star Wars: Episode VII is continuing to shoot in various areas around the globe, with Total-Geeks describing one scene that is set in the Whales location Forest of Dean, where a large woodland battle featuring thousands of extras took place.

The sequel shot in the Forest of Dean for a little over a week, with director J.J. Abrams and his cast and crew staying at the Celtic Manor Resort, a luxury, five-star hotel. They were shuttled back and forth between a location known as Puzzlewood, where stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and Pip Anderson all participated in the shoot.

Kathleen Kennedy reportedly visited the set a number of times, and quite a few business meetings took place inside the hotel. »

Maps To The Stars Review

26 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

He may be an acquired taste for some, but you’re always guaranteed an experience with a David Cronenberg movie. And yes, some of those experiences can leave alot to be desired. However, with Maps To The Stars, the director is firing on nearly all cylinders. Centralised around two main plots, which interweave with each other and a secondary story line that also manages to connect in when required, Maps To The Stars is quite the rollercoaster. The movie delves into the heart of Hollywood, as Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore) desperately tries to remain current while Benjie Weiss (Evan Bird), a huge child star, starts battling his demons. That’s the core of the story, but the real heart of it all lies around Mia Wasikowska’s character, Agatha as she turns up and after befriending Carrie Fisher (playing herself here) becomes Havana’s personal assistant. In a nutshell, everybody »

Star Wars Episode VII Concept Image Depicts Epic Lightsaber Duel

26 September 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Another day, another image from Star Wars: Episode VII, but this one just happens to be the best thing I've seen from the movie so far.  It depicts a lightsaber duel under the Millenium Falcon with a Darth Vader-like figure fighting a Rebel with a green lightsaber.  It's epic looking, and for a second I get excited but then I remember the prequels and how flat they were visually (not to mention narratively).  Then I get excited all over again because there's no way this will be like that, right? They can't possibly make the same mistakes can they? Yesterday we saw the Chrome Troopers (as a follow up to the new Stormtroopers and the costume designs for Han Solo).  But now we have this gorgeous image, besotted somewhat by an ill-conceived watermark on the part of the hosting site.  Hit the jump to take a look at the new »

New York Film Festival preview: 10 films that can make it anywhere

26 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The film-festival circuit this time of year is not unlike presidential-primary season. Venice or Telluride are sort of like the Iowa caucus, an important first step for a film to generate some name recognition and Oscar buzz—but not exactly the setting for a coronation. Toronto is the traditional Oscar-campaign battleground, a sort of New Hampshire primary that often separates the contenders from the pretenders. Last year, Toronto unofficially nominated 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, and Dallas Buyers Club, and those films went on to collect major awards.

But this year, the races still remain wide open after the first new rounds, »

First Look At ‘Chrome’ Stormtroopers In Star Wars Episode VII?

25 September 2014 10:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Thanks to the website Indie Revolver, we potentially have our very first look at the concept art for the new ‘chrome’ Stormtroopers in the J.J. Abrams directed Star Wars: Episode VII. The design has hints of the old white Stormtroopers, but with a more sleek, rounded design, which I kinda dig.

Ir also have a look at a concept design detailing a light saber battle in a mountain terrain with the legenardy Millennium Falcon in the background. Whether we’ll see this in the film in another issue, but you’ll have to agree that this looks epic! Epic! Check it out below.

The film will star Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o and Max von Sydow. It will arrive in cinemas on 18th December, 2015.

Maps To The Stars review: Cronenberg tackles celebrity culture

25 September 2014 6:29 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: David Cronenberg; Screenwriter: Bruce Wagner; Starring: Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Evan Bird, Robert Pattinson, John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Carrie Fisher; Running time: 111 mins; Certificate: 18

David Cronenberg movies rarely fail to provoke strong and conflicting feelings from the viewer, whether it be the compelling alienation of Cosmopolis or the involving revulsion of Eastern Promises. His latest offering Maps To The Stars is no exception, offering a scintillating study of the repercussions of suppressing traumatic episodes and boasting engrossing portrayals from Julianne Moore and Mia Wasikowska.

Famed for his venereal 'body horror' movies, Cronenberg positions Hollywood as a diseased, festering and parasitic entity. Alongside the celebrity culture it promotes, it bears a sickly yet addictive quality to the fascinating array of characters we encounter, especially those seemingly inspired by real-life famous figures.

There's hysterical Lohan-esque actress Havana (Moore), desperate to portray her famous deceased mother in a movie, and Benjie (Evan Bird »

Earlier this week, former 007 star Roger Moore revealed that he visited director J.J. Abrams on the Star Wars: Episode VII set, where he teased that they were filming scenes that involved, "something with a lot of mountains and snow." Many fans jumped to the conclusion that this was Hoth, the ice planet from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, but that may not be the case. It's believed that this snowy and mountainous land is, in fact, a different planet, »

10 Fun Facts About Tom Hanks' The Burbs

25 September 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Art by Paul Ainsworth

Director Joe Dante's 1989 horror comedy The Burbs is one of my favorite Tom Hanks films. I watch it a handful of times throughout the year, and it's almost always on a rainy lazy Sunday afternoon. With Halloween closing in on us, I thought now might be a good time to start focusing my "Fun Facts" lists on horror films, and I decided to start with The Burbs because it's awesome. So, here are 10 fun facts that you may or may not know about this classic film.

Ray Peterson was supposed to be killed by Dr. Klopek in the original script. That all changed once Hanks was cast in the role. Apparently, the studio didn't think the audience would appreciate witnessing his death on screen, so the ending had to be rewritten. It would have been a much darker film had Hanks' character died. Several alternate »

'Star Wars 7' Chrome Trooper Revealed in New Concept Art!

25 September 2014 12:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, we got our first look at the new Stormtrooper and Snowtrooper helmet designs for Star Wars: Episode VII, which is continuing to shoot in London. We have also heard rumors about new "chrome troopers" that will be appearing in this highly-anticipated sequel, although it was never clear how they fit into the story. Today, Indie Revolver has our first look at these Chrome Trooper helmets, along with details on who these imposing characters may be working for.

Check out the images below, then read on for more details:

New Concept Art Reveals Star Wars: Episode VII Chrome Trooper

25 September 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Remember last month when some genuine concept art from Star Wars: Episode VII started popping up, revealing the new Stormtroopers and the costume designs for Han Solo?  Well the same source is at it again, as they’ve now revealed a Chrome Trooper image by way of even more concept art.  Thankfully this isn’t incredibly spoilerly, but it’s neat to see how director J.J. Abrams is making the franchise his own by tweaking some very familiar designs.  The Millennium Falcon remains unchanged, wisely, but this new concept art shows a chrome-plated version of Stormtrooper that should pair nicely with the traditional white.  What makes the Chrome Trooper so special?  We’ll have to wait until December 18, 2015 to find out. Hit the jump to take a look at the Star Wars: Episode 7 Chrome Trooper images.  The film stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Harrison Ford, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, »

New plot details and first look at the Chrome Stormtrooper helmet from Star Wars: Episode VII?

25 September 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may be a movie that is shrouded in secrecy, but that hasn’t stopped a plethora of leaks about Star Wars: Episode VII flooding the Internet, including various shots of the Millennium Falcon and X-Wings as well as images of Adam Driver as a rebel pilot. Today’s “leaked image” comes from Indie Revolver (who also posted alleged Stormtrooper and Han Solo concept art) who claim this is an exclusive look at the chrome helmet design for the Stormtroopers. Take a look at the image here…

Update: And here’s a second image…

Along with some alleged concept art featuring a lightsabre battle next to the Millennium Falcon…

The wesbite also claims that they have some new ideas on the plot of the movie, but stress that they would never post rumours as “truth” or “fact”. So make of this what you will.

24 September 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Oscar Isaac has insisted that there is nothing "cynical" in Star Wars Episode VII.

Isaac will have a role in Jj Abrams's highly-anticipated sequel alongside original trilogy stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.

Star Wars Episode 7's Millennium Falcon teased in new video

Anthony Daniels says Star Wars Episode 7's C-3Po won't be CGI

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Isaac revealed that Ford is fully healed from his recent on-set injury.

"They're such funny people. Carrie is hilarious and doing such cool work. Harrison is back," Isaac said. "He went on hiatus for a little while, but he's 150% back.

"It's pretty amazing to see him bounce back. He looks incredible."

The actor continued: "Everyone's having a really good time. Jj sets that tone. There's a lot of enthusiasm and it's being done with a lot of heart. There's nothing cynical about the way we're doing this.

Oscar Isaac Talks 'Episode VII,' Working with 'Star Wars' Cast

23 September 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Always good to see someone in Star Wars: Episode Vii doing press for other projects. Both because I'm glad to see a promising group of new blood for the Star Wars universe, but because inevitably someone along the press-tour way will ask them about Star Wars.

This time it's Oscar Isaac promoting a movie called Two Faces of January. Isaac plays a guy scamming a living in Greece who runs into Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen. It takes place in the 1960s, it sounds very interesting.

But, Entertainment Weekly also asked him about the Star Wars and working with the original cast, getting him to mention being on set with multiple Storm Troopers. Neat!

Have you had much interactions with the original trio of Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill on or off-screen?

Yeah, I have. Both. They’re such funny people. Carrie is hilarious and doing such cool work. »

Oscar Isaac Talks 'Star Wars 7' Stormtroopers and Original Cast

23 September 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite a preponderance of rumors, conjecture and unconfirmed information floating around about the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII, there isn't much we really know about the sequel, aside from which actors have been cast, and that production is still under way at Pinewood Studios in London. Oscar Isaac is one of the many newcomers to the franchise, and there has been plenty of speculation as to who he may be playing after the full cast was revealed in late April, with one rumor suggesting that he is portraying the son or another descendant of Harrison Ford's Han Solo.

Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with Oscar Isaac, who doesn't confirm exactly what character he's playing, although the actor does reveal he has scenes with original Star Wars cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. Here's what he had to say, when asked if he's had interactions with the »
