'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always »

"We just don't recognise life's most significant moments while they're happening. Back then I thought, 'well there'll be other days'. I didn't realise that that was the only day."
It's a useful piece of advice that's given to writers, that you need to put something on the line if you want a piece to really work. That you need to put some, and ideally a lot, of yourself into it.
Brace yourselves, I'm afraid. I make no promises that the quality of what you're about to read is much cop. But I can tell you that Field Of Dreams is an immensely important and rich film to me, one that hits me, and hits me hard every time I watch it. I think that it reinforces too »
Reports are circulating online that Darth Vader will appear in the in-production Star Wars Rogue One, the first film in the Star Wars Anthology series that is about to start shooting with Godzilla and Monsters director Gareth Edwards at the helm. The film, which is having some of its second unit stuff shot at the moment at the famous Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, officially gets underway at the start of next month with Felicity Jones, Ben Mendelsohn and Riz Ahmed starring.
The events of Star Wars Rogue One are set before the 1977 original Star Wars movie A New Hope, and revolve around a heist to steal the plans to the Death Star, something which Vader would have been a little miffed at.

Soon to start filming is director Gareth Edwards' eagerly-awaited standalone Star Wars movie, Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. This is set to be a heist film set before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, and the cast is being led by Felicity Jones, Ben Mendelsohn and Riz Ahmed. Sam Claflin is reportedly up for a role too.
Here's a tantalising nugget of information about the movie too: Darth Vader is set to appear.
The character will be pretty much at the height of his powers at this point in the Star Wars timeline, and whilst he won't be the main antagonist of this particular Star Wars film, but is said to be pulling strings behind the scenes. He will be appearing »
The next generation of Star Wars movies are intent on bringing back all of the classic characters, along with the new, to appease old and young fans alike. And even though Darth Vader met his untimely demise before becoming an Anakin Skywalker Force Ghost in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, that doesn't mean he isn't also set to return on the big screen. A new rumor claims that he will be making an appearance in the first spinoff, Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. Though, don't look for him to be the primary villain.
Darth Vader will not be the main antagonist in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. Instead, he will be pulling the strings from behind the curtain. And, according to Bmd, he will literally appear onscreen via a view screen or a holo projection, as seen in the previous movies. Disney and LucasFilm have not confirmed this to be true. »
We've gone from an original trilogy, to a prequel trilogy and now a whole new Star Wars trilogy is on the way, but more than that, the Star Wars cinematic universe is expanding beyond just the main narrative as spin-off features are planned, the first of which being Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One directed by Gareth Edwards. We already know the film is something of a prequel story, centering on a band of resistance fighters uniting to steal the Death Star plans and with that being the case it would seem plausible that a certain iconic villain would show his face, and today that assumption has come true. Bdm reports Darth Vader will be included in the film, though he won't serve as the film's main antagonist. Instead "he will be working behind the scenes, pulling strings and will appear onscreen" most likely appearing via "viewscreen or holo projection". I »

The Roots remake has found its first big star. Laurence Fishburne will portray author Alex Haley in A&E’s upcoming event series, based on the 1976 book by the real-life Haley. James Earl Jones played the role in ABC’s 1977 adaptation. More on the Laurence Fishburne Roots casting after the jump. The new Roots is described […]

"Roots" is an American family origin story based around the life and descendants of Kunta Kinte, an 18th-century African captured as an adolescent and sold into slavery in the United States. The new version will incorporate material from Haley's novel along with carefully researched new scholarship of the time.

With a double-length première episode Rebels comes flying right into the thick of the action. You might immediately be confused if you’re a stickler for the old canon, but with that being swept away it allows the Rebels team to show us a different takes on things.
Season 1 finished strongly, with our Lothal heroes coming into contact with the larger rebellion. But they’re successes mean they’ll no longer be chased down by mere local forces or anything as pitiful as an Inquisitor. No, the big guns are getting involved now, with a threat that will provide a monumental challenge.
It’s fantastic that James Earl Jones is providing the voice of Vader. The sense of legitimacy and authority he gives the character cannot be underestimated. Vader hasn’t been neutered for children; his ruthlessness is fully intact, »

Cartoons generally fall into one of two categories: those for kids and those more appropriate for older audiences. Every so often, something will come along that kids and parents (or just older fans) can enjoy together all on the same level. "Star Wars Rebels" fills that niche and is yet another reason that this is a great time to be a Star Wars fan. The first season of "Star Wars Rebels" had its growing pains, as all shows will in their first season, but by building on the storytelling success that was the hallmark of the later seasons of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars", it quickly found its groove. Merging the cobbled-together family dynamic of a show like "Firefly" and the larger Star Wars universe, it could tell stories set in a time period ripe for exploration.

'Father of the Bride': Steve Martin and Kimberly Williams. Top Five Father's Day Movies? From giant Gregory Peck to tyrant John Gielgud What would be the Top Five Father's Day movies ever made? Well, there have been countless films about fathers and/or featuring fathers of various sizes, shapes, and inclinations. In terms of quality, these range from the amusing – e.g., the 1950 version of Cheaper by the Dozen; the Oscar-nominated The Grandfather – to the nauseating – e.g., the 1950 version of Father of the Bride; its atrocious sequel, Father's Little Dividend. Although I'm unable to come up with the absolute Top Five Father's Day Movies – or rather, just plain Father Movies – ever made, below are the first five (actually six, including a remake) "quality" patriarch-centered films that come to mind. Now, the fathers portrayed in these films aren't all heroic, loving, and/or saintly paternal figures. Several are »

Star Wars: Rebels is back, with nods to the original films, and some menacing villainy from Darth Vader himself. Here's Cameron's review...
This review contains spoilers.
2.1 The Siege Of Lothal
Season one of the latest Star Wars animated spin-off series came to an exciting and memorable end earlier this year. Not to mention a damn good one too. The Rebels gang had been joined by fan favourites from The Clone Wars, Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Clone Trooper Captain Rex, and one of the franchise's most iconic characters ever, Darth Vader.
It was a surprised-filled finale which took Star Wars: Rebels to new heights, and one wondered if the show could keep up the heart-stopping momentum. Thankfully, this one hour opener (well, a Us hour - it’s just over forty minutes) demonstrates aptly that these animated adventures have got much to offer. So much more.

“Star Wars Rebels: The Siege of Lothal” launches the animated program’s second season heading into Comic-Con and in advance of the next eagerly awaited live-action chapter of the franchise, and brings with it a major event for a little Disney Xd series: Darth Vader, with James Earl Jones providing the Sith Lord’s voice. Once again hewing closely to the spirit and template of the original, the show continues to revel in the latitude afforded by animation to dole out bountiful helpings of action, garnished with considerable wit and a welcome sense of fun.
Taking place between the events of “Revenge of the Sith” and the movie since rechristened “A New Hope,” the series centers on a ragtag crew of rebels, whose number includes the Jedi knight Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.) and the hotheaded youngster he’s seeking to train, Ezra (Taylor Gray). Their band – united at the »

Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels will not only feature James Earl Jones returning to voice Vader and Ashley Eckstein reprising the role of Ashoka, but Buffy the Vampire Slayer herself Sarah Michelle Geller joining the cast as a mysterious character many believe will turn out to be a young Princess Leia. Plus, we'll be seeing some more familiar faces from the Clone Wars such as Captain Rex. Though Ahsoka will play a "significant role" in the series moving forward, don't expect her to pop up every week. Like Vader, the character will be used sparingly to maintain some mystery and excitement for the episodes in which they are featured. Continuing the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga, "Star Wars Rebels" unfolds between the events of Star Wars Episodes III and IV and tells the story of the motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost who together face »
Ovation TV has partnered with the Actors Hall of Fame Foundation to air the Actors Hall of Fame induction ceremony — marking the first time the event will be televised.
“This will not be a ‘traditional award show.’ There are enough of those already!” said Actors Hall of Fame president Rusty Citron, who made the announcement with Liz Janneman, Ovation’s exec VP of network strategy. “We wanted to partner with Ovation TV because, as the foremost arts broadcast network, they understand that an actor who has achieved this level of success deserves the respect and honor worthy of their accomplishments.”
The special, which will air in October, will honor 15 as-yet-to-be-announced actors for their career achievement in film, TV and theater. Past recipients have included Gene Hackman, Meryl Streep, William H. Macy, Morgan Freeman, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Kirk Douglas, Angela Lansbury, Julie Andrews, Anthony Hopkins, Robert DeNiro, James Earl Jones and Hal Holbrook. »

Here's Disney Xd's trailer for The Siege Of Lothal, the Darth Vader-starring double bill that will kick off season 2...
Star Wars: Rebels season 1 did great work to tie together the prequel trilogy and the original saga, while interlinking characters and events from The Clone Wars, too. The best part, though? That it managed to be a hugely entertaining series despite this intricate game of connect-the-dots.
Season 2 is coming soon, so Disney Xd have released a new teaser for The Siege Of Lothal, the two-part opening salvo for the new run. James Earl Jones returns once more to voice the animated Darth Vader, in case you needed another reason to check out the series.
Here's the new teaser...
The Siege Of Lothal airs on Saturday the 20th of June, on Disney Xd.

Disney Xd has just released a teaser trailer for the season premiere of Star Wars Rebels Season 2, which will be double the length of a standard-issue episode of the Disney Xd series. The teaser gives a glimpse at Darth Vader, voiced once again by James Earl Jones, preparing and then finally enacting the Siege of Lothal, a major event in this timeline. Of course, we only got our first glimpse at Vader in the series proper at the end of last season as one of Emperor Palpatine's most trusted agents; Vader did appear, briefly, in the Star Wars Rebels film Spark of Rebellion. In the series, he joins Agent Kallus, voiced by David Oyelowo, and Grand Moff Tarkin, voiced by Stephen Stanton, as the Emperor's most trustworthy commanders to squash the rebellion, after the death of The Inquisitor. The trailer puts special focus on the entrance of Darth Vader and »
