The production is set to begin previews Sept. 21 before its Oct. 13 opening at the John Golden Theatre, the same venue where the play originally opened in 1977.

22 April 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I haven't been to a Broadway show in a few years, but this is one that I'd definitely pay the high ticket fee to see. Via a tweet from New York theater journalist/critic Jonathan MandellJames Earl Jones and Cicely Tyson will be sharing the same Broadway stage, starring in a revival of D.L. Coburn's "The Gin Game," at the Golden Theatre, with previews set to begin on September 21. Directed by Leonard Foglia, the production will officially open October 13.

"Star Wars: Rebels" Season 2 Trailer

20 April 2015 2:55 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite being part of canon, there's not a huge interest in the animated "Star Wars Rebels" series.

It's surprising really - reviews for the show were quite good, and the show's ratings are fairly solid, but the show hasn't been discussed in the zeitgeist the way you would think it would. Those involved though are getting another chance to hook you in with the Disney Xd show's second season.

Appearing at a panel for the show at "Star Wars Celebration" over the weekend, producer Simon Kinberg confirmed that James Earl Jones will return to voice Darth Vader throughout 'Rebels'.

He also says the new season is bigger and with higher stakes. He tells Collider: "The story gets bigger, the stakes get higher as it should. I feel like we’re moving into our 'Empire Strikes Back' era for the characters - where they’re really challenged. The first year was 'A New Hope'. »

Star Wars: Rebels – first trailer for season two, starring Darth Vader

20 April 2015 12:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here’s your first chance to get a glimpse at Star Wars: Rebels season 2, in this very action-packed trailer, featuring familiar faces…

At the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim over the weekend, fans were treated to an early screening of the premiere episode of Star Wars: Rebels season 2. Us folk at home will have to settle for the trailer, though.

Thankfully, it’s fairly epic as promo materials go, bringing the crew of The Ghost into direct contact with some more familiar faces from The Clone Wars and the chosen one himself, Darth Vader (voiced once more by James Earl Jones).

Have a look for yourself here…

More news on Star Wars: Rebels as we hear it. Hopefully we'll have a release date soon.

Star Wars Rebels Season 2: Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg Reveal 8 Things to Know

19 April 2015 6:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The ‘shared universe’ looms large over the Star Wars franchise. The concept that everything is interconnected, that everything is a part of the same far away galaxy -- all these varied stories taking place in one singular setting, building off one another... Case in point: Star Wars Rebels, in many ways a direct sequel to Clone Wars, fills in the gap between between the new and old film trilogies. The first season of Rebels successfully introduced a bevy of new players into the expanding Star Wars universe (Hera, Kanan, Ezra...). Now in its second season, creators/executive producers Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg hope to introduce these newfound characters to some perennial favorites -- from Clone Wars (Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex) & from the trilogies (Darth Vader himself). It’s another notch in the synergetic belt of Star Wars. At the press conference for the second season of Star Wars Rebels, »

First Trailer For Star Wars Rebels Season 2

19 April 2015 5:05 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Since replacing Star Wars: Clone Wars on small screens, Star Wars Rebels has ploughed its own successful furrow into the sprawling galaxy far, far away. The show is returning for a second season and a new trailer was unveiled at a panel for the show at Star Wars Celebration. Take a look...Set in the years between Revenge Of The Sith and A New Hope (yes, yes, we know, it’s just Star Wars to so many of us), the show features the adventures of a rag-tag group of rebels – some young, some veterans – who work as Robin Hood types to undercut the growing Empire and help the needy in their home system.Their actions have not gone unnoticed and now the Emperor has decided to put his gloved fist down, dispatching the one and only Darth Vader (voiced, as is law, by James Earl Jones) to take them out. »

'Darth Vader' & 'Ashoka Tano' Clash In Star Wars Rebels Season 2

19 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

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, as you'll see from the brilliant trailer below, 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 »

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Trailer Thrills with Vader, Return of Captain Rex

18 April 2015 2:08 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While all eyes are understandably on Star Wars: The Force Awakens to breathe new life into the Star Wars franchise, we actually got our first taste of new original content under Kathleen Kennedy’s Lucasfilm last fall with the debut of the animated series Star Wars Rebels. Created by Simon Kinberg and Dave Filoni, the show takes place five years before the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, when the Rebel Alliance is still a small, secretive grass roots campaign and the Empire is very much in control. Much to my surprise, the show absolutely won me over. Its tone perfectly toes the line between playful and sincere, with just the right mix of heart, action, and humor to make this a winning entry in the Star Wars saga. Today at Star Wars Celebration, the first trailer for Star Wars Rebels Season 2 was revealed, and clocking »

Listen to Darth Vader's "I am your father" in 20 different languages

15 April 2015 2:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Darth Vader's "I am your father" line is probably one of the most recognisable movie quotes, especially when associated with James Earl Jones's iconic tones.

YouTube user Matteo Di Pastena has created a supercut of the famous Star Wars line, playing it back-to-back with the scene's translation into 20 different languages.

With translations ranging from Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese and Italian, it quickly becomes apparent that each voice actor chose to deliver the line in their own unique way.

Deliveries range from the intense (German), to dark (Brazilian), but it's when the video gets to the Hebrew translation that things seem to change massively.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens will be released in cinemas on December 18.

Revisiting Clear And Present Danger: the best Jack Ryan film

30 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

An intelligent, dense political thriller in the middle of summer? We visit Harrison Ford in Tom Clancy's Clear And Present Danger...

This article contains spoilers for, er, Clear And Present Danger.

How many times have you walked out of seeing a big summer blockbuster movie, and felt like you'd been treated like a grown-up? Christopher Nolan movies, whether you like them or not, treat you with that level of respect. But when it comes to major thrillers, there's generally something about them where you feel you've been shortchanged.

It's why it puzzles me that Clear And Present Danger doesn't get a lot more love. From the day I saw it for the first time back in 1994, and on every viewing since, I've really loved this film. I love that it isn't afraid of a dense plot, isn't afraid of putting a big movie star on the poster yet finds time for supporting characters, »

How many have you seen? 12 of Disney's worst straight-to-video sequels

14 March 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sequels and spinoffs are all the rage on the big screen these days, but the news that Disney is moving forward with a Frozen 2 still comes as something of a surprise considering the studio has been reticent to pump out theatrically-released follow-ups to its biggest hits - only The Three Caballeros, The Rescuers Down Under, Fantasia 2000 and Winnie the Pooh are part of the Disney Animated Canon.

However, throughout the '90s and '00s Disney had a lucrative side-business in direct-to-video sequels that were turned around quickly and cheaply and made the studio a fast buck. Many execs felt that these cheapened the originals and John Lasseter put the brakes on them, although the recent Tinker Bell films (branching out from Peter Pan) have their roots in this release model.

Digital Spy revisits 13 of Disney's most unnecessary straight-to-video sequels below:

'Friday the 13th' Special: What happened to the Final Girls?

13 March 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The "Friday the 13th" franchise's crop of Final Girls are known for their keen survival instincts onscreen, but the careers of the actresses who played them? Not quite as impressive. When was the last time you heard the name "Amy Steel"? Dana Kimmell? Melanie Kinnaman? In celebration of Friday the 13th, here's our brief rundown of the post-"F13" careers of every Final Girl in the (original) franchise, from Adrienne King to Lexa Doig. "Friday the 13th" (1980) Adrienne King (Alice Hardy) After briefly reprising her role in the film's 1981 sequel, King became the victim of a stalker (the man ultimately pulled a gun on her). Shaken by the experience, she didn't return to acting until the 2010 low-budget horror/sci-fi film "Psychic Experiment." "Friday the 13th Part 2" (1981) Amy Steel (Ginny) Steel actually has two claims to fame in the horror genre, as she also starred in the 1986 pseudo-slasher "April Fool's Day. »

'The Good Wife' creators Robert & Michelle King on guest wish list: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, ... (Exclusive Video)

10 March 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

There are three open slots in the Emmy race for Best Drama Series, which means things are looking up for CBS's "The Good Wife." The broadcast drama has an on-again, off-again track record with the TV academy, something of which creators Robert and Michelle King are well aware. "We would pay every voter $10 for a nomination," the Kings joke on the Paley Festival red carpet at the Dolby Theatre (watch below). "Ten dollars!" -Break- Christine Baranski: I've become very gracious losing Emmys for 'The Good Wife' "The Good Wife" is known for its impressive roster of guest stars, but who do the Kings hope will pop up next on the show? "We've gotten close to John Lithgow a couple of times," but the scheduling couldn't be worked out, they admit. Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and James Earl Jones round out their list.

Star Wars Actor Ford Injured in Plane Accident in Los Angeles Area

5 March 2015 4:43 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

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 »
