Mark Hamill Address Theories

A new fan theory his kicked around online based on previous posters for Star Wars, which claims that Luke Skywalker will be the villain when it comes to December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Mark Hamill addresses fan theory that Luke Skywalker is evil in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Throughout the marketing campaign for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there have been several pointers hinting at a turn to the Dark Side for Luke Skywalker; there’s the red theme, the lighting on his face on the theatrical poster, the fact a new IMAX theater standee has him alongside Kylo Ren, General Hux and Captain Phasma, and even comments from Mark Hamill himself stating that “anything is possible”.

Well, we now have a new fan theory pointing towards an evil Luke Skywalker based upon the posters for the previous Star Wars movies, which have a villain looming in the background – much like Luke Skywalker is in The Last Jedi poster…

Well, Hamill has now taken to Twitter to offer a humorous respsonse to the theory, stating that Luke has always been a villain “from a certain point of view”…

Mark Hamill Pokes Fun At All Those “Evil Luke” Conspiracies Swirling Around The Last Jedi

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ask any Star Wars fan worth their salt to identify the true hero of Lucasfilm’s original trilogy and they’ll likely gravitate toward Luke Skywalker, the Tatooine farm-boy-turned-Jedi-Master who helped topple the Galactic Empire and their totalitarian regime.

But from another point of view, Mark Hamill’s series stalwart actually straddles the line between hero and villain, and that’s something the actor addressed just recently via Twitter. As the conspiracy theories continue to engulf Star Wars: The Last Jedi – seriously, we’re beginning to lose track – Hamill has tackled what is arguably the most contentious of the bunch: Luke Skywalker going rogue and converting to the dark side.

To recap, a vocal corner of the Internet believes Kylo Ren will be responsible for Luke’s descent into villainy, while there are those who believe Mr. Skywalker is on the verge of becoming a Gray Jedi – that is, a »

Mark Hamill Gets Nostalgic While Detailing The Last Jedi’s Irish Shoot: “I Got The Chills”

23 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You can go ahead and thank The Force Awakens for putting Skellig Michael on the global stage.

Located off the coast of County Kerry, Ireland, that rocky, primordial outcrop initially doubled as Ahch-To in J.J. Abrams’ franchise revival, and with Star Wars: The Last Jedi looming large, it won’t be too long before Rian Johnson whisks us back to Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.

It’s purportedly the site of the last Jedi Temple, which goes some way to explaining why the great Luke Skywalker has spent so long in exile. But when detailing The Last Jedi‘s Irish shoot in a recent interview with Joe.ie (via ComicBook.com), Mark Hamill admitted that stepping foot on Skellig Michael conjured up a feeling in him that he hadn’t felt since the original Star Wars trilogy.

I remember, I had this feeling that rushed over me when I was »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi promo art offers first look at the Space Horses

17 October 2017 1:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Star Wars News Net, we have our first look at some new creatures from Star Wars: The Last Jedi called fathiers (a.k.a. Space Horses). These alien creatures are found on the world of Canto Bight, where they race for gambling purposes – and by the looks of the promotional artwork, Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) will be making use of their speed, presumably during their rumoured chase sequence with the First Order.

Lff 2017: ‘Brigsby Bear’ Review

17 October 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Kyle Mooney, Mark Hamill, Jane Adams, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh, Michaela Watkins, Ryan Simpkins, Alexa Demie, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Claire Danes, Chance Crimin, Beck Bennett, Andy Samberg | Written by Kevin Costello, Kyle Mooney | Directed by Dave McCary

Saturday Night Live alumnus Dave McCary makes his directorial debut with Brigsby Bear, an engaging and smartly judged indie comedy-drama that mixes elements from several different movies but still manages to feel entirely original.

SNL’s Kyle Mooney (who co-wrote the script with Kevin Costello) plays twenty-five year-old James, who grows up in an underground desert bunker with his “parents” Ted (Mark Hamil) and April (Jane Adams). Kyle’s only entertainment is Brigsby Bear, a children’s fantasy TV show about a talking bear who protects the universe and dispenses weekly life lessons like “curiosity is an unnatural emotion” and “trust only the family unit”.

Turning to the dark side: is Luke Skywalker really the villain of Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

16 October 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In the new poster for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Mark Hamill’s character looms menacingly in the background – just like his dear old dad Darth Vader used to

When giant Snoke told us last time out that there had been an “awakening”, most Star Wars fans assumed the alien overlord must be referring to Daisy Ridley’s proto-Jedi Rey and her madcap Force visions. But it’s becoming increasingly obvious in the run-up to Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi that disturbances in the Force are more insidious and potentially wide-ranging.

First came last week’s final trailer for the middle part of the new Star Wars trilogy, in which Ridley seems to be cosying up to Adam Driver’s sinister Kylo Ren. And this week there’s been plenty of talk online to the effect that Luke Skywalker himself might finally be set to turn to the dark side, »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Is Officially 2 Months Away

15 October 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Star Wars fans from all over the world were treated to the new 2-and-a-half minute trailer for The Last Jedi and it did not disappoint.

Is Rey a Palpatine or Kenobi in The Last Jedi?

14 October 2017 10:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The final trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi sent the internet into a bonafide tizzy. Fans were apoplectic at the scene where Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), flying his bad-assed Tie Interceptor, seems to target his mother, Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) on her ship. Then at the trailer's culmination, the idea that Rey (Daisy Ridley), in a quest to find her place in the madness, would entertain following Kylo Ren. These are all misdirects meant to whip up fan fervor. It's obvious from the quick cut edit that the last scene takes place in two different settings. Lucasfilm is all about clever marketing. Just as in the trailer for The Force Awakens, nothing from the actual film was given away. Besides, Star Wars fans would march on Lucasfilm with sharpened plastic lightsabers if Kylo Ren killed Han Solo and Princess Leia. He may have targeted her, but there isn't a »

J.J. Abrams Told Daisy Ridley To Treat Star Wars Like A Religion

13 October 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking a job on a Star Wars film must be simultaneously thrilling and terrifying. On one hand, the movie is all but guaranteed to be a success, you’ll get a chance to appear in one of the most iconic franchises of all-time and, if the whole acting career doesn’t work out, you can make a living on the convention circuit signing glossy headshots. On the other hand, though, screw this up and it’ll follow you to your grave, as hardcore franchise fans will not forgive anyone for messing with their baby.

All that’s probably why J.J. Abrams gave some pointed advice to then-newcomer Daisy Ridley when she was cast as Rey in The Force Awakens. In a recent interview with Vogue, she laid out what he said:

“Understand the scale. This is not a role in a movie. This is a religion for people. It changes »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Fan Theory Suggests Kylo Ren Is Actually Tempting Luke To The Dark Side

13 October 2017 5:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In keeping with tradition, Lucasfilm incorporated some neat parallels into the new and likely final trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

For instance, Kylo Ren’s ongoing descent into villainy was juxtaposed with Rey’s moral dilemma, while Luke Skywalker’s crippling fear was a far cry from the bold, booming voice of Supreme Leader Snoke, who can be heard uttering that chilling line: “When I found you, I sensed raw, untamed power. And beyond that, something truly special.”

And though one might assume that Andy Serkis’ grossly disfigured alien is offering some guidance to Kylo Ren, subsequent fan theories have asserted that Snoke is actually talking to Daisy Ridley’s Rey, as he begins to court her over to the dark side. Chalk that up as innocent conjecture for the time being, but with more than two months still to go before The Last Jedi‘s December release, »

David Fincher Apologizes to Adam Driver for Negative Star Wars Comments

12 October 2017 12:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 2014, Sony Pictures' emails were hacked and all hell broke loose, leading to a wealth of trash talking and backstabbing. One particular email exchange that came to light was between director David Fincher and former Sony bigwig Amy Pascal, which detailed their reactions to Adam Driver being cast as Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Pascal simply replied "Wtf," while Fincher took it a step forward and flat out called the decision to cast Driver a "terrible idea." As it turns out, the subject still comes up, 3 years later and David Fincher can't stop apologizing.

David Fincher is framing that his message was just intended to be "flippant" and he even asked for Steven Soderbergh, who directed Driver in Logan Lucky, to apologize on his behalf while Driver was on the set of the movie. Though Fincher is unsure if Soderbergh felt it was necessary to do so. »

Luke Shows His Dark Side in Massive Last Jedi IMAX Standee

11 October 2017 1:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With 64 days and a few hours left until the first screenings of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we learned yesterday that there will be many IMAX exclusives given away during Thursday night screenings, depending on which theater you go to. Today, IMAX has revealed a brand new theater display, which will supposedly be placed as a frame, of sorts, to the theater entrance, with each side featuring a look at the "light" and "dark" side of the iconic Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). While there is no indication as to what "side" may prevail in this highly-anticipated movie, this theater display poses some interesting questions.

This image debuted on IMAX Twitter, which revealed it will be on display in "select IMAX theaters," although no further details were given. The image on the left side features the "light" side of Luke Skywalker, where he's seen looming over heroes new and old such »
