Movie review of 2014: Year in pictures - Oscars, Marvel, Batfleck, more

3 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It started in Wall Street and ended up in North Korea. 2014 was a year full of highs and lows in the world of cinema, with a diverse range of movies reeling in the punters, some striking visual moments that captured the present and teased the future, and several hugely saddening departures.

January

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese's collaboration The Wolf of Wall Street opens in cinemas, providing the soundtrack to 2014 with Matthew McConaughey's chest-beating humming. The black comedy became the director's highest grossing film, scooped five Oscar nominations and reminded everyone why driving under the influence is a very bad idea.

February

The world of entertainment was devastated by the tragic death of Philip Seymour Hoffman at the age of 46. The acclaimed actor, who excelled in films like Boogie Nights, Capote, The Master and Magnolia, had been working on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 at the time of his passing. »

23 December 2014 12:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we got ourselves a look at the mask for the character of Kylo Ren, and now thanks to Market Saw we’ve got some (alleged) concept art from J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens, featuring returning favourites Han Solo and Chewbacca!

Obviously Chewie is pretty much as expected, but what do you make of that look for Han?

How much of Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: Days of Future Past script made it into the movie?

23 December 2014 12:39 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn was originally set to return to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past but eventually bowed out in favour of directing another project of his, Kingsman: The Secret Service. Vaughn had written the original screenplay alongside Simon Kinberg, but it was unclear how much of his story made it onto the big screen when Bryan Singer replaced him as director. Now, in an interview with Collider, Vaughn has spoken about the movie, and how much of his original vision was retained by Singer in the final film:

“I’d say 90%.  I mean, we worked on the script [Simon] Kinsberg and I.  It was a really tough decision for me, because I pulled out just because I’d finished the Kingsman: The Secret Service script at the same time and I was like ‘My god if I don’t make a fun spy movie right now, somebody »

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Han Solo & Chewbacca Art

23 December 2014 12:27 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, fans got their first official glimpse at the wookie Chewbacca in a set video from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However, we have yet to see any of the other original Star Wars characters in action, such as Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher). Following Sith concept art that surfaced yesterday, MarketSaw has debuted two more pieces of concept art, showcasing Harrison Ford's Han Solo and his wookie companion, Chewbacca.

These images are said to be, "absolutely final iterations of concept art for Episode VII," which, if true, means that these images could closely resemble the actors themselves when we finally get to see footage or photos of Han and Chewie. The Han Solo image closely resembles concept art released back in August, so it seems likely that this is authentic. As you can see in the photos below, »

Han Solo & Chewie Concept Art For Star Wars: The Force Awakens

23 December 2014 10:36 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Seems like everyday concept art from Star Wars: The Force Awakens slips through the cracks of J.J. Abrams' super-secretive production. The latest batch, which are were posted by Market Saw, are supposedly concept art of Harrison Ford's 'Han Solo' and his furry sidekick 'Chewbacca.' If the images below are in fact real then that means Han Solo will have that old gunslinger look to him like he had in the first Star Wars film. If he actually dons that long brown coat in the film it will surely remind audiences of 'Malcolm Reynolds' (Nathan Fillion) from Joss Whedon's short-lived (thanks Fox!) television series, Firefly. Star Wars: Episode VII - Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, »

My Ten Most Anticipated Films of 2015

22 December 2014 8:05 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

No time for foreplay. Here we go:   10. Avengers: Age of Ultron (directed by Joss Whedon) Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johannson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, James Spader Upon each rewatch, The Avengers becomes a little less enjoyable for me. But I have hopes that Joss Whedon’s follow-up to that 2012 monster hit will be a little bit more thematically interesting now that introductions have been made. Spader is going to make a boss out of Ultron. 9. Kingsman: The Secret Service (directed by Matthew Vaughn) Cast: Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Michael Caine, Mark Hamill, Mark Strong, Samuel L. Jackson   Harry Hart (Firth) tries to bring Eggsy Unwin (Egerton) into an ultra-secret spy program while a madman (Jackson) is ready for mayhem. This looks like the most wacked out spy movie in a long time and I always enjoy some sharp English wit. »

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Action Figures Leak Online

22 December 2014 4:23 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past few years, some of the biggest reveals from major blockbusters have come in the form of early action figure images, leaked sometimes years before the movie's impending release. It shouldn't come as a huge surprise then that an image featuring five action figures from Star Wars: The Force Awakens has appeared online, giving us a new look at Finn (John Boyega), Kylo Ren (???), Rey (Daisy Ridley), the popular ball droid Bb-8 and everyone's favorite Wookie, Chewbacca.

This Chewbacca action figure appears to debunk recent reports that the iconic character will have a robotic arm, since there doesn't appear to be any bionic appendages on the wookie. The first figure on the far left has not been confirmed as Kylo Ren, the cloaked figure wielding the unique lightsaber from the first trailer. We never see what the character's face and/or mask looks like in the trailer. »

First look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens action figures, new concept art leaks

22 December 2014 1:37 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve got our first look at Hasbro’s action figure line for next December’s hotly-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with Rebelscum posting a leaked image of five unpainted figures…

So, that looks to be Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Bb-8 and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew). As for the figure on the left, is that Kylo Ren, the mysterious, lightsabre-wielding villain glimpsed in the trailer? It could well be… well, according to Indie Revolver it may well be, with the site posting the following piece of concept art which its claims belongs to the character…

More Leaked Star Wars: The Force Awakens Concept Art Featuring 'Kylo Ren'

22 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

J.J. Abrams' mystery box has once again sprung a leak, this time with more concept art from Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. The focus is on Kylo Ren, the mysterious villain who we first caught a glimpse of (from behind) in the first teaser trailer for the December 18th, 2015 movie. As you may recall, we have actually seen concept art of a lighsaber battle taking place as a fire rages and the Millennium Falcon hovers overhead, so I would guess that this piece has been taken from that scene. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer up any clues about who might be wearing this suit... Also below in case you missed it earlier is the other piece of concept art featuring Kylo Ren's mask.  Starring original cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and franchise newcomers, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, »

'Star Wars 7' Sith Concept Art and Toys Revealed

22 December 2014 8:16 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Leave it to the toys for our latest big Star Wars: The Force Awakens reveal. An action figure prototype image offers our first look at John Boyega out of his Stormtrooper outfit. We also get a better look at Daisy Ridley as Rey, and Chewbacca, who is not sporting a bionic arm as previously reported. Best of all, we get to see new Sith Villain Kylo Ren in his Darth Vader-inspired helmet. They are all joined by the ever popular ball droid Bb-8.

The site Chinese Star Wars is responsible for this latest image. While it hasn't been confirmed that this is, in fact, Kylo Ren, Indie Revolver, who has leaked quite a bit of concept art over the past year, confirms that this is the new Sith villain, rumored to be played by Adam Driver. They have a nice piece of concept art, which reveals the character's helmet. »

First Look At Star Wars: The Force Awakens Action Figures

22 December 2014 5:43 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Chewbacca (apparently he won't have a robotic arm after all) and Bb-8 should need no introduction, but what about the other three? Well to the left of the little droid appears to be a figure of Daisy Ridley's character, Rey, and next to her is what looks to be Jon Boyega's Finn, but out of his Stormtrooper gear and in some civvies. Finally we have the mysterious masked man (woman?), who resembles a character from some of the leaked concept art that's believed to be the person we see wielding the Lightsaber in the trailer, Kylo Ren. Another theory is that it might be whoever Gwendoline Christie is playing, as she's rumoured to be some sort of imperial inquisitor type. What do you guys think? Starring original cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and franchise newcomers, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, »

Hamill Talks Trickster Return on "Flash"

21 December 2014 10:11 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The CW's new take on "The Flash" has been enjoying bringing back various cast members from the 1990s TV series. John Wesley Shipp has been in the new show since the pilot, playing the father of the current Barry Allen (Grant Gustin). In a recent episode, Amanda Pays returned to reprise the role of Dr. Tina McGee albeit a somewhat frostier version of the character.

Word came the other week though of an unexpected return - Mark Hamill as the villain The Trickster. Hamill took on the role of the colorful baddie in the CBS series, and is again reprising the role here albeit in a very different way. According to reports, he'll play a long incarcerated version of the villain whose help is sought when a copycat takes up his former criminal identity.

Recently talking with IGN, Hamill is as surprised as anyone he got the call to return:

Mark Hamill on returning to the role of The Trickster in The Flash

21 December 2014 5:46 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

2015 is shaping up to be a big year for Mark Hamill. Not only is he returning as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but he’s also set to reprise the role of the the DC supervillain The Trickster (a part he played back in the early 90s) in The CW’s rebooted series The Flash. Speaking to IGN, Hamill shared a few thoughts on his upcoming return to the character:

“Well listen, it’s really in the embryonic stages. We discussed it over the phone. I like these guys, what they’ve already done with the show. I’m a fan. I had watched all seven or eight episodes that they had at the time. When they asked me to be a part of it, the last thing I was thinking was that I would be returning to that specific role, but I think you’re »

'Flash': Mark Hamill Talks About His Return as Trickster

20 December 2014 3:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mark Hamill is experience what some may refer to as a comeback. And 2015 promises to be a big year for the actor. Not only will he reprise his iconic role next December as Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, he'll also appear in the Valentine weekend release Kingsman: The Secret Service, which is already receiving stellar reviews from advanced screenings. But it's the return of an unexpected character that will serve as the cherry on top. Mark Hamill never thought he'd be playing The Trickster a second time, a character he originated on The Flash TV series that ran on CBS in 1990. But The CW reboot has asked him to suit up again. And now, he's talking with IGN about the experience.

The CW is actually having a lot of fun with the original Flash cast. John Wesley Shipp, who played the 90s Barry Allen, is back as Barry's dad in the new Flash. »

Adam Driver Talks 'Star Wars 7'; New R2D2 Image Debuts

19 December 2014 5:35 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Is Adam Driver playing Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens? While we don't see the actor's face in the teaser trailer, we do meet this lone Sith wondering through a snowy landscape. It's possible that the actor is playing the main bad guy, whose journey is said to mirror Luke Skywalker's. But we won't likely know the truth until closer to the release date. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor did discuss the grounding of characters in this new sequel. And he compares it to what we saw in 1977's Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.

"I always think back to the original movies and to those quieter moments where Luke is out in A New Hope, and there are the two suns setting. It is the equivalent, basically, of a farm boy dying to get out of his small town and do something bigger. »

Second 'Kingsman: Secret Service' International Trailer

19 December 2014 5:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Early press screenings are calling Kingsman: The Secret Service one of 2015's funnest movies. And the recent trailers don't deviate from that. 20th Century Fox has released a new international trailer. And it shows off just how fun the movie can be.

Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn, Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Firth, Mark Hamill, Michael Caine, Mark Strong and newcomer Taron Egerton, Kingsman promises to be a nice alternative to the romantic dramas other studios have planned for this coming Valentine's weekend. Will you be able to convince your loved one to see it? Let's hope so:

Kingsman: The Secret Service comes to theaters February 13th, »

Rare 1977 Star Wars Set Footage

19 December 2014 4:38 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It amazes me that I still come across stuff that I've never seen from George Lucas' original Star Wars films. The Internet is truly a magical tool of greatness. Thanks to Eyes On Cinema we have some rare and extremely cool behind-the-scenes footage from the set of Star Wars: A New Hope. There's no audio for the video, but don't let that stop you from watching it! Here's a description of what the video contains:

The first half of the (silent) clip shows a 30-something George Lucas conferring with cinematographer Gilbert Taylor before discussing a scene — cut from the final film — in which Mark Hamill (Luke Sykwalker), Garrick Hagon (Biggs Darklighter) and Koo Stark traipse around the Tatooine settlement of Anchorhead. The second half of the clip shows crew members operating the Wed-15 repair droid — a much fancier version of the Wed-15-77 that Luke and his Uncle »

Mark Hamill as The Emperor! Rainn Wilson is Chewbacca! Photos from the Live-Read of 'The Empire Strikes Back'

19 December 2014 4:30 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Mark Hamill finally went over to the dark side of the Force. Jason Reitman's live-read of The Empire Strikes Back last night brought two surprise guests to the roster of actors recreating the Star Wars sequel. Hamill, who was once Luke Skywalker himself (and will be again) joined the group to play none other than The Emperor. Hamill, an acclaimed voice actor who has done countless animated shows, also read the lines for Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett, doing spot-on imitations of each, while The Office's Rainn Wilson, sporting a bushy beard and lumberjack-style checked shirt, played Chewbacca -- and only Chewbacca. »
