26 February 2015 9:51 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier in the week, it was revealed that original Star Wars actor James Earl Jones will return to reprise his iconic role as Darth Vader in the Star Wars Rebels season finale Fire Across the Galaxy.

10 sequels that ignored previous films

26 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.

We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.

News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).

Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »

11 of action cinema's great movie villain pairings

25 February 2015 8:11 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From early Bond to 21st century sci-fi, here's Ryan's pick of 11 unforgettable villain pairings from action cinema history...

You're generally lucky if a movie has one genuinely great villain in it, let alone two. This is probably because creating a villain takes great acting and writing - it's one thing to create a preening character who stomps around a story doing unpleasant things, but creating a villain who's three-dimensional, witty, scary and above all memorable requires considerable skill.

Every so often, a movie comes along which gives us not one, but two classic villains, with the personality of one complementing the other. A familiar dynamic was once laid out by Steven Spielberg: one is smart and eloquent , while the other is the tougher, more violent of the pair. It's a template that we've seen time and again in cinema, but it's only occasionally that both characters leap from the screen. »

Star Wars Rebels: Darth Vader returning for season finale

25 February 2015 12:40 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new Star Wars Rebels trailer has teased the return of James Earl Jones as Darth Vader in the season finale. See it here…

Those who have taken the time to invest in Star Wars Rebels - the Disney Xd animated series which bridges the gap between Revenge Of The Sith and A New Hope - have found plenty to enjoy.

Amongst other fan-pleasing moments, we’ve had a brief appearance from Obi-Wan, Anthony Daniels reprising C-3Po, the return of Billy Dee Williams as Lando, and a cameo from James Earl Jones as Darth Vader way back in the premiere episode.

Now, it looks like the suited-up and currently evil Anakin Skywalker will be returning for the season finale entitled Fire Across The Galaxy. We’ve assumed this because he appears in the trailer, which you can see here…

Fire Across The Galaxy premieres in America on Monday the 2nd of March. »

Star Wars: Return of the Legends

13 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Writing couple paragraphs of last week’s S7AR Wars about a fan-restored Blu-Ray quality version of the original trilogy, I considered becoming a collector of various “despecialized” cuts of the original trilogy I learned were floating around the internet.

Then, I got an e-mail from El Mayimbe with some images and info that made me think I might not have to dig through the annals of the internet to get a Blu Ray copy of the un-Special Star Wars trilogy. Maybe I don’t have to turn to the likes of internet smugglers and pirates to get the original Original Trilogy fix.

Disclaimer - Gonna show you these, but then talk about how they aren’t real. Ready?

Got sent these mockups of the original trilogy Blu Rays with the “Legends” banner from a designer who claimed to have made them at the request of Lucasfilm.

Anna Chlumsky Takes Lessons Learned on ‘My Girl’ to Broadway

13 February 2015 6:05 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

When Veep premiered in 2012, most people were surprised (and excited) to see child star, Anna Chlumsky, all grown up and cursing up a storm on HBO. Three seasons later, the 34-year-old actress has been twice nominated for an Emmy for her role as Amy Brookheimer, the determined and sometimes ruthless Chief of Staff to Vice President Selina Meyer.

Having already marked her territory in both film and TV, Chlumsky is taking on Broadway with her debut in You Can’t Take It with You, a slapstick play that has her testing her ability to keep a straight face.

Q&A: How John Lithgow Embraced His Age and Scored the Role of His Career

Despite all the recent success, Chlumsky still hasn’t forgotten the little things she’s learned along the way, such as the acting tricks Jamie Lee Curtis and Dan Aykroyd, her then-adult co-stars, taught her on the set of My Girl.

Watch George Lucas Reveal 11 People Who Could Have Played Darth Vader In Hilarious Video

9 February 2015 8:07 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This may come as a shock, but James Earl Jones was not the first person to audition for the role of Darth Vader in Star Wars, nor was he George Lucas. first choice. We know, that.s pretty much blasphemy at this point, but this comes from the mouth of Lucas himself. During a recent ceremony honoring James Earl Jones, the father of Star Wars made a special appearance to reveal the 11 other names he considered for Vader -- and while he may be joking at Jones' expense, the video is definitely worth a watch just for the clever cameos that are sprinkled throughout: This clip screened at The Musical Celebration Of Broadway, which this year was honoring James Earl Jones and his career. He.s currently celebrating his production You Can.t Take It With You, which will be on Broadway until February 22, if you care to get tickets. »

3 Major Star Wars Characters Could Appear in Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Premiere

6 February 2015 1:43 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Star Wars Rebels hasn't skimped on bringing in classic and fan-favorte characters into the show, and new reports have come in that the second season premiere will feature Three returning characters.  Come inside to find out who! 

One of the things I've enjoyed most about Star Wars Rebels, is just how deftly they've handled cameos for other Star Wars characters.  Where they could easliy feel forced into the show to make fans excited, the showrunners have done an excellent job in making everything flow naturally and apart of the overall story.  It's nicely done, so it's always great to hear about More classic characters returning.  We already know that Lando will be back for more, but our friends at MakingStarWars broke the news that 3 classic characters will pop up in the show's second season premiere.  

I overheard exactly who was in the opening of Star Wars Rebels Season II by someone from Lucasfilm. »

But as part of the honour, George Lucas made a special guest appearance via video to show off some of the “long lost” audition tapes for the iconic role – including original Darth Vader choice Angela Lansbury!

(Real) George Lucas Shares (Fake) Lost Darth Vader Auditions

5 February 2015 10:17 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I was going to say that George Lucas doesn’t show his humorous side so often but he’s so utterly deadpan in this video that maybe I’ve misread the man and he’s actually taking the mickey all of the time. That would certainly explain a few things.

Explain, but not exactly excuse.

Now, this clip, which comes from Vulture, was apparently screened as part of the New York Drama League’s feteing of James Earl Jones. What better way to celebrate that fine actor that than demonstrate how completely preposterous the Darth Vader dialogue sounds coming out of anybody else’s mouth.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will do well to find a villainous presence one half as commanding as the Jones-Dave Prowse combo. Lucas might have gotten a lot of things wrong, but the pairing of the Green Cross Code man and Lt. Lothar »

Alan Cumming Pretty Sure Alicia Will Get Laid on The Good Wife

3 February 2015 9:26 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Good Wife is never short on risky twists, but even its stars aren't sure how the show's going to pull off the tricky exit of Kalinda, one of the show's central characters. Alan Cumming, who plays the tense, manipulative Eli Gold, caught up with Vulture at the Drama League's 31st annual Musical Celebration of Broadway honoring James Earl Jones to give us the skinny on what's in store for Tgw. "Seriously, I don't know how they're going to get rid of Kalinda," he confessed. "The script I've got as of today is like the 16th episode or something, and a certain big thing happens, but, uh, you know, we're six more from the end, so. I often think that, like, Oh my God, they've shot their loads, and then there's five more episodes to go, and [I] think, Oh, holy shit! What are they going to do? I like it, »

Star Wars: Rebels, and why you should be watching it

30 January 2015 6:36 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It may go out on DisneyXD, but Star Wars Rebels is far more than a kid’s show according to John Moore...

There's an obvious reason geeks should watch new animated series Star Wars: Rebels, which is this: it's Star Wars

It has the look, the feel, and (perhaps most importantly) the music that we know and love... What’s more it also has some nascent signs of the character interplay and humour that made watching the Ot cast aboard the Millenium Falcon such good fun - but if that isn’t enough for you, then read on...

No, really, it’s Star Wars

While Rebels hasn’t yet shown the oft-sadistic streak and darker tone of The Clone Wars (and is unlikely to - I doubt you’ll see troopers gleefully releasing people to die in the vacuum of space while making jokes about it, as that show »
