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

16 hours ago | 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

20 hours ago | 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 »

As if the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Last Jedi couldn't get any higher, LucasFilm has shared a new still from the movie announcing that we only have 2 more months to go until the movie finally hits theaters. 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.

In anticipation for trailer, LucasFilm released 2 teaser videos ahead of the new trailer and now they've started a countdown for the movie.

LucasFilm did the same thing, but with short clips back in September when The Last Jedi was officially 100 days away and now they've shared a new picture of Rey, holding her staff on Ahch-To, overlooking the water from »

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 »

5 reasons to see Blade Runner 20495 reasons to see Blade Runner 2049Scott Goodyer10/11/2017 2:28:00 Pm

Blade Runner 2049 is now playing and a definite must see on the big screen for many reasons.

The movie stars Ryan Gosling who plays Officer K, a young Blade Runner whose discovery of a long-buried secret leads him to track down former Blade Runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who's been missing for thirty years.

If you're on the fence about seeing it, check out our list below of reasons you need to see this long-awaited sequel!

1. The Blade Runner Universe

For many fans of the original 1982 masterpiece, we fell in love with the futuristic world that depicted a dystopic Los Angeles in 2019. Director Ridley Scott and Cinematographer Jordan Cronenweth at the time made a world that was dark and bleak yet beautiful.

Rian Johnson reveals Lucasfilm spoiler policy for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

11 October 2017 11:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rian Johnson, the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, has revealed the spoiler policy of Lucasfilm for the upcoming movie.

The build up to The Last Jedi has gotten everyone talking, and, as is normally the case for a film of this size, fans have had to contend with any spoilers that might be contained in the movie’s marketing material.

Lucasfilm has already set out their stall for what they consider to be a no-go area with regards to The Last Jedi, as Rian Johnson has revealed to Yahoo the process that was undertaken to decide what would need to be left out of the various trailers.

“A year ago, maybe even more than that, my producer Ram [Bergman] and I sat down with the folks at Lucasfilm and said, ‘Ok, this is what we’re going to reveal here and there, and this stuff we’re never going »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi director on what inspired him to create Porgs for the film

11 October 2017 9:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of the second trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the internet officially has Porg fever. In case you missed it, at one point the trailer depicts Chewbacca flying the Millennium Falcon alongside a screaming Porg, which has made the weird seal-penguin-thing the topic of many a conversation this week.

So where did the idea of Porgs come from? In a universe full of bizarre alien species, the Porgs aren’t too strange, but we’ve been burned before with “comical” additions to the Star Wars universe  (cough Jar Jar cough). So why include them?

What is their purpose? Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson reveals that Porgs were inspired by the native Puffins that lived on the island they were filming on:

“I was like, ‘Oh, this is part of the island, we need to find the Star Wars version of this. »

This Fan-Made Poster For Star Wars: The Last Jedi Is Something Special

11 October 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If there’s one thing the Internet isn’t lacking, it’s fan-made posters based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Even before Sunday’s momentous reveal, in which Lucasfilm and Disney took over Espn’s Monday Night Football to direct everyone’s attention to the ongoing Skywalker saga, the impassioned Star Wars community has produced one memorable one-sheet after another. But the latest piece, which finds its way to us via Cbm, is something truly special.

Drawn up by Marvel Comics artist Phil Noto, the image (which can be seen in the gallery below, along with a few others) is arguably one of The Last Jedi‘s best posters to date, and that’s even when you count those hilarious, meme-worthy portraits that replace every major character with a porg. Because porgs are so hot right now.

Well, here’s some rather splendid news for fans of Batman: The Animated Series, as Warner Bros.’ Gary Miereanu has announced that the beloved show is being remastered for a Blu-ray release in 2018.

No further details were revealed, and it’s unclear at this point whether Warner Bros. is planning to release the series in volumes, as it did with the DVDs, or deliver a bumper box set of the original series and its successor The New Batman Adventures.
