11 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you're Star Wars lover - or even just a casual fan - it's scary to hear that Han Solo crashed his Millennium Falcon. So celebrities and fans alike were relieved upon getting the news late Thursday that Harrison Ford, 72, would make a full recovery after sustaining a head injury when his vintage plane went down in a Los Angeles-area golf course. Even William Shatner - who wrote a full Twitter tribute on Sunday for the late Leonard Nimoy - gave a shout-out to Ford, who sustained a 5-to-6-inch gash on his scalp after making an emergency landing on the Penmar Golf Course, »

New rumours of Luke Skywalker’s role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and flashback sequences

2 March 2015 5:36 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – Potential Spoilers Below

We’re less than 300 days away from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but the reports and rumours are still coming in thick and fast. We’ve already had rumours that Darth Vader would be in the film in some capacity (possibly in a flashback) and now we have new rumours that back those claims up.

According to Making Star Wars, Robert Boulter (not announced in the cast list as of yet) has joined Star Wars: The Force Awakens to play a young Luke Skywalker in a flashback sequence. This would play into the opening of the movie, in which Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) go to Rose’s Bar, owned by Rose (Lupita Nyong’o) who is a puppet similar to Yoda.

Below is a breakdown of the flashback:

'Kingsman' Deleted Scene Features a Young Michael Caine

24 February 2015 1:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service is well on its way to being one of 2015's early box office hits, already taking in more than $155 million worldwide in just over one week in release. We reported last week that director Matthew Vaughn is already formulating ideas for Kingsman 2, but today we have images from one Kingsman: The Secret Service deleted scene that sadly wasn't included in the theatrical cut. U.K. visual effects house Jellyfish Pictures has posted two intriguing photos from a scene involving Michael Caine's Arthur, that made him look 40 years younger through VFX. Here's an excerpt from the Jellyfish website.

"Jellyfish worked on the VFX for the movie including a complex sequence involving Michael Caine looking 40 years younger."

While no specific details were given about the scene, Kingsman: The Secret Service comic book creator Mark Millar confirmed that the scene was set in 1975, and that it was cut because director Matthew Vaughn thought, »

24 February 2015 10:41 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since the first 88-second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted in late November of last year, fans have been chomping at the bit to see even more footage. Director J.J. Abrams took a break from his post-production work to host a party over the weekend at his Bad Robot offices in Santa Monica, California, where he revealed that he is grateful for fans who want to know when the next trailer will debut, and said that they have conversations every day about when fans will see the next footage. But he doesn't actually answer the question, instead explaining Disney's release strategy:

"First of all, I'm always grateful that people would be asking. But the truth is like we haven't shown anything. We don't want to be coy but we have almost a year until the movie comes out, so we have to be smart about what we say and when. »

23 February 2015 1:44 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From "The Good TheBad And TheUgly.Ca, Sneak Peek '...the good, the bad and the ugly..." in director Matthew Vaughn's "Kingsman: The Secret Service", starring Colin Firth:

Michael Stevens for 'The Good' :

"Based on the 'graphic' graphic novel series by Mark Millar of "Kick-Ass" fame, director Matthew Vaughn's amusing take on the spy-film genre, takes delight in adapting the story of a gentlemen-run clandestine organization that recruits a 'Marty McFly'-like son (Taron Egerton) of a top field agent killed in the line of duty...

"...into a "My Fair Lady" transformative, ultra-competitive training program...

"...while a global threat emerges from a lisping, tech criminal named 'Valentine' (Samuel L. Jackson).

"Colin Firth as 'Agent Harry Hart' aka ''Galahad', steals most of the film's thunder...

"... as a slimmer, dapper version of brolly-swinging Brit super spy 'Steed' from the 1960's "Avengers" TV series...

"...with deadly gadgets and expert fighting skills, »

J.J. Abrams Confirms Some 'Star Wars 7' Rumors Are True

20 February 2015 8:57 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Star Wars: The Force Awakens was announced way back in 2012, rumors and spoilers about the film's characters and story have flooded the internet. There have been so many, it's hard to keep them all straight, or remember what they are. While most have been written off as flights of fancy from over-eager fans, J.J. Abrams confirms in a new interview that some of the spoilers and rumors that we've heard over the past couple of years are, in fact, very true!

Speaking with The BBC, J.J. Abrams wouldn't acknowledge which past rumors have hit it right on the nose, or which ones are too outrageous to believe. He did express how much he appreciates them, as they show an interest from a hungry fan base. And without that, he wouldn't have a film. He even admits that he's enjoyed the occasional spoiler in the past:

'Suicide Squad': Leto Calls Joker a Shakespearean Disaster

20 February 2015 6:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson, Mark Hamill, Cesar Romero and even Cameron Monaghan, in some short degree with his portrayal of Jerome on Gotham, have all left an indelible mark on the legacy of Batman's most iconic villain The Joker. So it's no wonder that Jared Leto, who will next portray the Clown Prince on the big screen in Suicide Squad, sees the role as a 'big challenge'. That's almost an understatement, and he has a legion of fans watching his every move.

Speaking with Billboard, the actor finally opens up about taking on the monumental character as DC and Warner Bros. dive deep into their cinematic universe. Let's just hope he's not taking it too seriously. When describing The Joker, Jared Leto views the villain as a carefully constructed piece of art. He explains:

"The opportunity to take on this nearly Shakespearean character - that's what graphic novels and comic books are becoming, »
