'Star Wars 7' to Include Jabba the Hutt's Crime Family?

30 January 2015 5:06 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been a hot minute since we've actually heard any good rumors about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as the Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off gears up for production this spring. While it was earlier reported that Disney and Lucasfilm may be courting Michael Fassbender to play Boba Fett in that sci-fi solo adventure for the bounty hunter (not confirmed), we're now hearing that J.J. Abrams may have landed a more sinister presence for his own film, which kick starts a new trilogy. While Jabba the Hutt will have been dead for nearly thirty years at the start of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it looks like other members of the Hutt syndicated crime family will actually be involved in the storyline.

The Hutts are a family of gangster who reside on Tatooine, and they have ties that reach all the way back to Anakin Skywalker, »

'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Super Bowl Trailer

30 January 2015 9:49 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just two days left until Super Bowl Xlix, 20th Century Fox has debuted their full Super Bowl trailer for the highly-anticipated Kingsman: The Secret Service featuring brand new footage. While it's only a 30-second spot, there's plenty of action crammed into this small amount of space for director Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of the Mark Millar comic book. This thrill-packed trailer is set to the Rob Zombie song "Ging Gang Gong De Do Gong De Laga Raga."

Kingsman 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. Colin Firth stars as Harry Hart, who gives his juvenile delinquent relative Eggsy (Taron Egerton) the chance to turn his life around and become a Kingsman agent. Samuel L. Jackson also stars as the nefarious Valentine, whose evil »

Tatiana Maslany rumoured to have landed a role in Star Wars spin-off

30 January 2015 9:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was reported last week that  Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Felicity Jones (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Kate Mara (The Fantastic Four) were testing out for roles in Gareth Edward’s Star Wars spin-off. Well, the folks over at Total Geek seem to found out who got the part.

According to the website, Maslany landed a role in the movie. There are no details of her character (if she has one), but confirms that this is for the 2016 spin-off and not Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Perhaps coincidentally, Maslany has recently pulled out from doing an Off-Broadway show due to “scheduling conflicts”.

Before we get to the Star Wars spin-off we first need to get through Star Wars: The Force Awakens which is set for release »

Thanks to The Daily Mail, we’ve got our first look at Devon Graye (Dexter) as the new version of The Trickster in the DC superhero show…

Graye is set to feature as Axel Walker, a copycat of the original Trickster James Jesse, with Mark Hamill reprising the role he played in the 1990s Flash TV series. The episode will see Jesse reluctantly teaming up with Barry (Grant Gustin) and Detective West (Jesse L. Martin) to track down the imposter and put an end to his city-wide attacks.

'Star Wars 8' and 9 Dates Confirmed; More Trilogies Planned?

29 January 2015 5:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We have long known that this year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens kickstarts a whole new trilogy, to be followed by Star Wars: Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX, not to mention new spinoff movies. It has long been assumed that Disney is aiming for a 2017 release for Star Wars: Episode VIII and a 2019 debut for Star Wars: Episode IX, but now we have confirmation from Disney CEO Bob Iger himself. David Gremillion from Get Your Geek On is a Disney stockholder, who received an annual report from the company that included this quote from Bob Iger, which confirms a 2017 release for Star Wars: Episode VIII and a 2019 debut for Star Wars: Episode IX, and that the Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off will hit theaters at some point in 2016. Here's what he had to say, adding that Star Wars: »

Review: Kingsman: The Secret Service

29 January 2015 3:59 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Is it possible to have a conversation about British culture - and its perceived idealism's in film - without mentioning James Bond? The valor, the silk-induced accent, the martini (shaken, not stirred, of course) - no matter what you draw on, one thing is certain... Mr. Bond oozes class, and has been representative of her Majesty's fine isle for as long as people took interest.

Skip forward to 2015 and things have changed. Mr. Bond - now in his eighth reincarnation - is evolving around his audience. Given the success and popularity of darker, more perturbed action heroes (such as Christopher Nolan's Batman, or Zack Snyder's Watchmen), so to has James bittered. Articulation and swagger are met in equal measure with substance abuse and insomnia, resulting in a spy that's as crazy as he is co-ordinated...and we love it!

And so, when the concept of the British spy »

Kingsman: The Secret Service Review – Kick-Ass With Spies, Literally

27 January 2015 3:43 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Rating: ★★★★

Kingsman: The Secret Service sees director Matthew Vaughn reteam with co-writer Jane Goodman to adapt a Mark Millar comic riffing on a beloved genre. So it’s Kick-Ass, just for spies then? Those jokey summaries really write themselves.

But witticisms aside, that really is what Kingsman comes across as. The same pervasive self-awareness runs through the film, and if you strip down both movies’ narratives of their respective genre there are some astonishing similarities. Like, spoiler-level similarities. An action beat in Kingsman even mirrors a now-iconic move from Hit-Girl.

There’s no 22 Jump Street winking to suggest this is intentional, but rather than seeing the writing team fatigued and repeating the same tricks, hewing to type affords them a broader creativity. So yeah, Kingsman is Kick-Ass with spies. But as big budget spy movies are much more fertile and epic ground than superhero comics, that leaves »

Kingsman: The Secret Service review

26 January 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A Colin Firth action sequence, a Mark Hamill cameo and a lisping Samuel L. Jackson. What's not to love?

Some people sit back and complain about the state of comic book movies, and then carry on making films in the same vein. For the third time in his career, director Matthew Vaughn has actively gone out of his way to do something about it.

The first such occasion was the commendably Daily Mail-baiting Kick-Ass, a film that beneath its energy, ideas, music and fruity language had real substance to it, and plenty of rewatch value. Oh, and an 18 certificate. I fondly remember such things.

Then his X-Men film, X-Men: First Class, put character firmly at the fore, at least until the special effects moved in for a large chunk of the final act. In both cases, there was a real sense that Vaughn had taken the films on because there »

Kingsman The Secret Service review: Heaven is a place on Firth

26 January 2015 1:39 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Matthew Vaughn; Screenwriters: Matthew Vaughn, Jane Goldman; Starring:Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Samuel L Jackson, Michael Caine, Mark Strong, Mark Hamill, Samantha Womack; Running time: 128 mins; Certificate: 15

'Colin Firth vs Scum'. In an alternate reality, we'd like to think this movie was given that iconic title. Especially as its most joyous scene involves the former Mr Darcy tackling a pub full of rampaging thugs armed with just an umbrella – and without even one of his immaculately groomed hairs coming out of place or a single expletive emitting from lips that wouldn't scowl if you offered them a blank cheque. The Firth doesn't do disheveled or uncivilised, for as we learn from his character - 'manners maketh man'.

We also discover that the creative forces behind Kick-Ass maketh another belter that puts a dynamic twist on a well-worn genre. Boasting immense performances from Firth as an aristocratic agent and »

Most Anticipated Blockbusters of 2015 (That Aren’t Already Hyped to Death)

25 January 2015 5:57 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Especially when it comes to big-budget genre blockbusters, hype has become an inseparable part of movie culture. Trailers, teasers and teasers for trailers, along with a steady drip-feed of news, rumors and inside reports, all these are well-handled tools in Hollywood’s ever-increasing mastery of getting you primed and ready to slap down your money. Add the fact that more and more Hollywood blockbusters are based off beloved properties or tied to ongoing series and yearly top-ten lists of the most anticipated blockbusters or summer movies of the year can tend to look a bit samey. Oh really, you’re excited for Star Wars Episode 7? Well of course you are, it’s Star Wars Episode 7. Saying you’re excited to see it is like saying you enjoy oxygen or puppydog kisses.

Most of the most anticipated movies of the year, quite frankly, don’t need any more hype than they already have. »

Kingsman: The Secret Service Review

24 January 2015 11:57 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Matthew Vaughn

Cast: Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton

Certificate: 12A

Running Time: 129 minutes

Synopsis: A veteran secret agent takes a young upstart under his wing.

Mark Miller and Matthew Vaughn (the team who brought audiences the blood-stained joy of Kick-ass) are back with Kingsman: The Secret Service, a new take on the spy film that is riotous fun and full of surprises.

When a spot opens up, each of the Kingsman spies are asked to nominate a potential candidate to take on that position. While most nominate someone of a higher class, wealth and position in society, one nominates the son of a former colleague – after getting him out of jail that is. Eggsy is persuaded to try out but the fish-out-of-water dynamic certainly presents a few challenges and as his relationship with his mentor grows, his hidden potential starts to reveal itself.

First off, there is an incredible ensemble cast to consider. »
