Colin Trevorrow asked Rian Johnson to add “one little thing” to Star Wars: The Last Jedi

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in May, Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson revealed that he’d asked J.J. Abrams to make one small change to the ending of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in order to set the stage for Episode VIII, and now Star Wars: Episode IX helmer Colin Trevorrow has said that he’s asked a similar favour of Johnson.

“There was one little thing,” Trevorrow tells the Happy Sad Confused Podcast (via Dark Horizons). “It wasn’t an adjustment, it was just ‘Could you shoot this one extra thing while you’re in this place on this day?’ And he did, which was great. But, y’know, it’s part of the collaborative process that exists – everyone is in communication. There’s such a genuine want to get this right from everybody, and I think that one of the misconceptions is that there’s some kind of great corporate overlord that is dictating this story to everybody, and that’s what it’s going to be because that’s going to sell the most toys. The reality of it is that it’s a small group of people, but it’s actually, y’know, kind of large when you think about it – and none of them are corporate, all of them are creatives and all of them are genuinely, very sincerely, wanting to do the work of their lives in order to realize this.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set for release on December 14th in the UK and December 15th in the States and sees returning cast members Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix), Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke), Peter Mayhew and Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar), Mike Quinn (Nien Nunb), Simon Pegg (Unkar Plutt), and Warwick Davis joined by new additions Jimmy Vee (Pan) as R2-D2, Kelly Marie Tran (Ladies Like Us) as Rose, and Benicio Del Toro (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Laura Dern (Jurassic Park). »

Emmys 2017: TV’s Top Showrunners Pick Their Favorite Shows

21 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Every awards show reflects the tastes of its voting pool. The Golden Globe Awards are voted on by obscure journalists from outlets no one has ever heard of. The People’s Choice Awards are voted on by people.

But the Emmys are voted on by the group whose opinion is most trusted by the folks who make television — other folks who make television. Those are the individuals who understand not only that making a great piece of television is hard, but also why it’s hard.

Showrunners, being the persons in charge, are the TV professionals who have the most holistic view of the craft. »

Carrie Fisher's Brother Todd Reacts to Actress' Autopsy: 'It's No News That Carrie Did Drugs'

20 June 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Todd Fisher does not believe that the results of his sister Carrie Fisher's autopsy should negatively affect her legacy.

On Monday, the L.A. County Coroner released its full autopsy, which showed that cocaine was among the drugs in the actress' system when she died in December at age 60. However, investigators could not determine what impact the drugs in her system may have had on her death.

"I would tell you, from my perspective that there’s certainly no news that Carrie did drugs," Todd told Et after the autopsy results were revealed. "If you want to know what killed her, it’s all of it."

New trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi classified

20 June 2017 10:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Time to get excited Star Wars fans, as it seems a new trailer for December’s hugely-anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi is on the horizon, with the BBFC officially classifying a second trailer, running at 1 minute and 31 seconds.

It’s unclear when the trailer will arrive, but typically they’re with us within a couple of weeks of classification and there are some big releases incoming, including Transformers: The Last Knight and Spider-Man: Homecoming, which it could potentially be attached to. That being said, Disney’s D-23 Expo is also taking place next month between Friday July 14th and Sunday July 16th, so it’s possible that Disney and Lucasfilm could hold off until then.

In the meantime, you can revisit the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi here.

Update: The folks at Trailer Track believe it may just be a condensed version of the teaser trailer. »

Every “Star Wars” director hopes to leave a personal stamp on the franchise while taking the story to new heights, but the filmmakers who are tasked with bringing each new movie to the screen are more like friendly collaborators than competitors.

Here’s what Trevorrow said in a recent interview with MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast:

Carrie Fisher's autopsy report shows the actress had cocaine among other drugs in her system when she was died in December. However, investigators could not determine what impact those drugs found had on her death.

The L.A. County Coroner released its full autopsy on Monday, and it revealed that Fisher may have taken cocaine approximately 72 hours before her flight on Dec. 23.

Carrie Fisher had cocaine, methadone, heroin and ecstasy in her system when she died in December, according to an autopsy report released Monday.

The coroner’s report listed sleep apnea as the primary cause of death, with drug intake as a contributing factor. The report stated that Fisher’s family objected to a full autopsy, and coroner’s investigators had access to limited toxicology specimens. The conclusions were based on toxicology results and an external examination of Fisher’s body.

Fisher died on Dec. 27, four days after going into cardiac arrest on an airplane arriving at Lax from London. The report states that Fisher’s assistant was on the plane with her. The assistant reported that she was awake and normal at the beginning of the flight, but had “multiple apneic episodes, which was her baseline” during the flight. At the end of the flight, she could not be awoken. »
