Empire Building: The Making of The Empire Strikes Back

17 December 2010 2:43 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the recent passing of director Irvin Kershner, Trevor Hogg explores the development of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back...

“For many fans and cinephiles, Empire is the best of the Star Wars movies, dark and enigmatic – the film noir of the saga,” writes author J.W. Rinzler in the introduction of his latest effort The Making of The Empire Strikes Back – a detailed exploration into the production of the science fiction-fantasy film; together with The Godfather: Part II it is considered to be the gold standard for movie sequels. However, the critical and box office success of the acclaimed second installment, which established American filmmaker George Lucas as an independent studio mogul and caused him to rebuild his special effects company Industrial Light & Magic, was far from being a forgone conclusion. “Many Ilm veterans cite it as the toughest film of their careers,” observed Rinzler of »

Alien Prequel is Only One Movie, Official Announcement Soon

8 December 2010 5:20 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Last week we reported on the rather unfortunate rumor that the release dates of Ridley Scott’s highly-anticipated Alien prequels had been pushed back, which meant that we wouldn’t be seeing the films until 2013 and 2014.

However, those who were disheartened that they’d have to wait an additional 12 months to see the first Alien prequel can breathe a sigh of relief as those rumors of delays have now been stamped as “false.” Not only that, but the prequel (which we confirmed is actually only one movie) has reportedly been given a new title (which may not be accurate), as well as possibly…

Mark Wahlberg Turning Sci-fi Short ‘The Raven’ Into a Feature Film

8 December 2010 8:32 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

He may not be taking part in The Crow reboot, but evidently there’s another big, black bird in Mark Wahlberg’s future. He will produce and possibly star in The Raven – a feature-length adaptation of a six-minute short film released last winter by up-and-coming filmmaker Ricardo De Montreuil.

Not to be confused with James McTeigue’s upcoming Edgar Allen Poe project of the same name, Montreuil created his film in the hopes of receiving some attention from Hollywood. It took eight months of negotiating, but now The Hollywood Reporter is confirming the involvement of Wahlberg and his producing partner Steve Levinson.

The Raven is set in a future where Los Angeles has been transformed into a police state and robot drones are…

Mark Wahlberg Talks About Seth MacFarlane’s ‘Teddy Bear’

8 December 2010 7:41 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In October, we reported that Mark Wahlberg had signed on as the lead in Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s feature-length directorial debut, Teddy Bear (or Ted). The movie is a “Hard R” comedy revolving around a man and his beloved childhood teddy bear, voiced by MacFarlane.

Knowing MacFarlane’s style, there will be nothing cute and cuddly about the teddy bear in Teddy Bear. More than likely, the film will push the limits of good taste and surely contain moments of “I can’t believe he just said that” comedy.

In a recent interview with MTV for his new film The Fighter, Mark Wahlberg talked about the raunchiness of Teddy Bear and also expanded on the movie’s plot. Check the pertinent quotes below, or skip ahead for the video interview.

The Hobbit Cast Adds Seven More – Including Cate Blanchett

7 December 2010 5:11 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Hobbit is officially on safe ground after being mixed up in MGM’s protracted financial ordeal. The long-awaited project received the official green light back in October and from then on actors have been joining the cast left, right and center.

Today comes news of more actors joining The Hobbit cast, some of whom you’ll be familiar with – from both in and outside of the Lord of the Rings universe – and some you most likely won’t be familiar with it at all.

Warner Bros./New Line Cinema have announced via press release that well known actors Cate Blanchett, Sylvester McCoy (formerly Doctor Who himself), Mikael Persbrandt (Everlasting Moments, Day and Night) and Ken Stott (Rebus) have joined The Hobbit cast. Blanchett will reprise her role from the Lotr trilogy as…

Mark Hamill Talks ‘Star Wars’ & ‘Batman: Arkham City’

7 December 2010 7:58 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Mark Hamill can keep a secret. He told us so last night at the Los Angeles premiere of director David O. Russell’s new film The Fighter; starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Amy Adams.

The actor was at the event in support of two of the the film’s writers, Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasy, who also co-wrote (with Hamill) the screenplay for the film adaptation of Hamill’s Dark Horse comic book, The Black Pearl. Johnson also partnered with Hamill on the original comic, which was released in 1996. Hamill is set to direct the modestly-budgeted film.

We had the chance to speak with the actor about the upcoming sequel to the Batman: Arkham Asylum video game, entitled Arkham City; what he loves about his role…

'Batman' Remake Looks Like 'Lego Batman' Meets 'Super Mario RPG'

6 December 2010 12:40 PM, PST | MTV Multiplayer | See recent MTV Multiplayer news »

While Batman pushes ahead with his "Arkham Asylum" sequel "Batman: Arkham City" on its way and whatever presence Sony Online Entertainment chooses for him in "DC Universe Online," some loyal enthusiasts have just wrapped up a 14-year stint remaking the Caped Crusader's 24-year-old "Batman" game for the Zx Spectrum.

The isometric 3-D title from Ocean Software was extremely trippy, and you can still check it out on the remake project's page at Retrospec.sgn.net (via Destructoid). The unauthorized, yet more colorful version names its creators as Tomaz Kac, David Vassart, Infamous and Cheveron, though in 1986 is was first created by Bernie Drummond and Jon Ritman.

The short, stocky Batman walking around in the game looks a lot more like the hero of "Brave and the Bold" than he does like the one from "Arkham Asylum," but the Batcave you have to explore as you search for parts of your »

Mark Hamill Cast in Comic Book Film Adaptation of New-gen

1 December 2010 3:26 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A.P.N.G. Enterprises has announced that they will be developing a big screen live-action adaptation of the comic book New-Gen, and Mark Hamill (Star Wars) has already been cast in an undisclosed role. 

The film is still in the very early stages of development, but New-Gen co-creator J.D. Matonti is set to direct and executive produce the film. Fellow co-creators Chris Matonti and Julia Coppola will serve as producers. Hamill previously recorded an online behind-the-scenes feature for New-Gen.

I haven't read the comic book, but it sounds like it could make for a pretty awesome flick. According to Variety the story centers on twin brothers who discover their identity while fighting a futuristic war, but there's much more to it than that.

Here's a more detailed explanation of the story:

Once a peaceful utopian society, New-Gen was forever changed when the megalomaniac mad scientist, Deadalus, unleashed nanobots into the populous as »

Luke Skywalker Returns in New-gen

1 December 2010 11:27 AM, PST | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Mark Hamill, the actor primarily known as "Luke Skywalker" from the Star Wars movies and secondly known as The Joker in nearly every modern day animated version of the Batman story, will do something he hasn't done in a long time: star in a live-action movie. Hamill is the star of New-Gen, based on the A.P.N.G. comic book series (distributed by Marvel), is about twin brothers who discover their secret identity while fighting crime in a futuristic society. The project will also become a "3D-motion comic available as a cross-platform gaming product" (sound cool -- but what the heck is that?!).  

The project has Hamill written all over it. Hamill has made a Massive career in voice-over since his light saber days and has additionally made a strong mark in the comic book space (check his resume here).

Mark Hamill to star in 'New Gen' comic adaptation

30 November 2010 8:13 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Star Wars' lead Mark Hamill is to headline a cross-platform adaptation of the comicbook series New-Gen Universe, including a theatrical feature release.

A.P.N.G. Enterprises' comic centres on a future society in another dimension, where the societal harmony between humans, 'strange creatures' and robots is torn apart by a battle over nanotechnology between two super-powered scientists. Gabriel, one of the feuding scientists, consigns Deadalus (the other) to the 'Underworld' and sends his infant twin children to Earth, where they are destined to be separated and only learn later of their identity. The children and other creatures develop "NanoPowers" in the Association for the Protection of the New Generation (A.P.N.G.), and are destined to war against Deadalus after his transformation into the evil Sly, a tyrant with the power to transform worlds.

Sounds like the most epic project Mark Hamill will have undertaken since Return Of The Jedi »

[TV] Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!: The Complete Series

29 November 2010 12:23 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Scooby-Doo holds a special place in the heart of anyone who grew up in the 80s or 90s. Whether it was one of your top Saturday morning cartoon contenders or the last-ditch option when the ones you liked ended, everyone and their grandmother has seen at least one episode of this Hanna Barbera classic. Now, after quite a few season releases and plenty of single-disc 4-episode samplers, Warner Brothers has seen fit to give us a complete series set, and they’ve had the brilliant sense to box it in a semi-functional replica of the gang’s Mystery Machine. You can’t argue with the packaging, so really the only criticisms to be leveled at the series are for the preservation of the colors, the animation, and the show formula itself.

If you’ve never seen and episode of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! before, consider this next paragraph to be »

Will Friedle chats about his time in the Batcave

25 November 2010 12:49 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The popular voiceover actor took time last week to speak about his days as the new Caped Crusader in preparation for this week's release of Batman Beyond: The Complete Series, a nine-disc limited edition DVD set that presents nearly 20 hours of animated action spread over 52 episodes, as well as including all-new bonus featurettes and a 24-page, 8”x 12” collectible booklet.

Batman Beyond: The Complete Series centers on Terry McGinnis, an ordinary teenager ... until his father is mysteriously murdered. Suspecting foul play at his father's company, Wayne/Powers Corporation, Terry meets Bruce Wayne and learns of a secret identity hidden for decades. Now too old to don the cape and cowl as Batman, Wayne refuses to help – so Terry does what any brash young kid would do: steal the Bat-suit and take matters into his own hands! Vowing to avenge his father's death, Terry dons the high-tech suit tricked out with jetpacks, »

Op-Ed Article: Bring Frank Miller’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ to the Big Screen

Bring Frank Miller’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ to the Big Screen

By Brian Heaton

When “The Dark Knight Rises” is released in 2012, it likely marks the end of Christopher Nolan's tenure at the helm of Batman films. The director has said the story is a conclusion and it is fair to assume Nolan and lead actor Christian Bale will wrap up their involvement in Gotham City. If that happens, it is the perfect time to bring Frank Miller's legendary graphic novel, “The Dark Knight Returns” to the silver screen.

As great as Nolan's vision for Batman is, he has also put some major restrictions on the Bat Universe. The two major ones are his emphatic statement against the use of Robin and the refusal to include other superheros. While I agree with Nolan regarding those two things for this particular set of Batman films, I'd also like »

Vintage 1978 Star Wars Spoiler from the Man Who Played Darth Vader, David Prowse

8 November 2010 5:48 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Hey Gang! Apparently there was a major Star Wars spoiler revealed back in 1978 before The Empire Strikes Back was released in theaters.

David Prowse, the man who played Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy, told a cheering crowd at Berkeley, California that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker's father! This was two years before Empire Strikes Back was released in theaters! 

Here's a description of the newspaper clipping above that pretty much spoiled everything for anyone that read the paper. This is how spoilers and rumors spread back in the day before the internet, only it didn't get around as fast.

[M]y mother was good to keep an eye out for Star Wars news – and when this particular item showed up in our local paper, she cut it out for me. I still have it to this day. And, it was my first introduction to spoilers. In late 1978, David Prowse »
