Cast Members Share Their Favorite Harry Potter Spells And Classes

8 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’d be nice if some of the things that were possible in the Harry Potter movies could make the transition over to real life, wouldn’t it? When asked, a couple of the actors, Tom Felton and Warwick Davis, went into a little detail of what classes they would like to take and which spells they found the most interesting and the most useful.  It’s easy to see how any of them would be tempting but you can also admit just which would be a little Too tempting and possibly dangerous if used in the wrong manner. After all magic isn’t

It looks like the fan favourite Dark Horse Comics characters Tag and Bink are set to join the official Star Wars canon, with Ron Howard taking to Twitter to reveal that the duo will appear in the upcoming Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, where they will be portrayed by screenwriter Jon Kasdan and first assistant director Toby Hefferman.

Ron Howard (@RealRonHoward) October 14, 2017

If you’re unfamiliar with Tag & Bink, the duo were created by Kevin Rubio (director of the fan film Troops), and are the Rosencrantz & Guildenstern of the Star Wars universe, crossing paths with every major character in the Saga as they influence the events of both the Original and Prequel trilogies. You can read about the characters over at Wookieepedia.

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. »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi IMAX display teases a turn to the Dark Side

11 October 2017 4:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the release of the new trailer on Monday, it seems like we can expect the Star Wars: The Last Jedi marketing floodgates to open. Yesterday we got an IMAX poster for the hotly-anticipated second chapter of the Sequel Trilogy, and now we have a look at an IMAX theater display, which seemingly teases a potential turn to the Dark Side for Luke Skywalker…

The above image was shared to Twitter with the caption “Light side or the dark”, and you will of course notice that Luke is present on both sides, and is looking rather Sith Lord-like on the First Order side, where he’s joined by Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma and Snoke’s Praetorian Guards.

Rumours and speculation of a turn to the Dark Side for Luke Skywalker have been circulating since before the »

10 Future A-List Actors Who Made Horror Movies

10 October 2017 2:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We all have to start somewhere, right? Despite its history of cinema classics and major box office success, the horror genre is often maligned as somehow less worthy of respect than other types of films. For whatever reason, it's not as easy to get an A-list actor to headline a horror movie as it should be. But beggars can't be choosers. Plenty of Oscar-nomintaed thespians had no problem making horror flicks on the way up. Today, we're looking at 10 future A-List actors who made horror movies before they became big time celebrities.

Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger

There may be no greater example of the phenomenon we're talking about here than the fourth film in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, which starred two future A-list actors and is demonstrative of the shrewd and cynical strategies of Hollywood. In 1994, relative unknowns Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger had already been in Dazed and Confused »

The Flickering Myth Reaction to the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer

10 October 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing team share their thoughts on the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Last night (or in the early hours of this morning, for those of us in the UK), Disney and Lucasfilm unleashed the second trailer for December’s massively-anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Despite Rian Johnson’s recommendation that fans avoid the trailer, the Flickering Myth writing team – and pretty much everyone else in the world – couldn’t resist this latest peek at the galaxy far, far away, and here’s what we made of it…

Ben Robins: Loving the focus on the force and Jedi in this one, and getting a very different vibe from it too. Even down to the lighting, everything seems a lot fresher and in some cases, weirdly smaller than Star Wars: The Force Awakens which is very exciting. As expected, pretty much zero plot given away too which is always nice, »

New Trailer drops for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

10 October 2017 8:48 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday evening, during halftime of Monday Night Football, a brand new Trailer dropped for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Episode VIII in the Saga, this film builds upon the massive and record breaking success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Remember, that movie is the biggest one of all time, at least domestically at the box office. Could The Last Jedi be even bigger? Believe it or not, there’s a good chance that that’s the case. You can see the new Trailer at the bottom of this post, but before that…it’s time to discuss what next is going down a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. Once again for those living under a rock where this franchise isn’t a part of pop culture, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the next installment in the main portion of the Star Wars Saga. It »

Director Rian Johnson says you might want to avoid the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer

9 October 2017 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re just a few short hours away from the release of the second trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and director Rian Johnson has taken the unusual step of advising fans to give it a miss, particularly if they want to go into the movie spoiler-free. Johnson took to social media to post the following…

I a legitimately torn. If you want to come in clean, absolutely avoid it.

But it’s gooooood….. https://t.co/Y29K5yz8i4

Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) October 8, 2017

The first trailer gave very little away, so judging by Johnson’s comments, this next one may go down a different route and could potentially feature a few details and/or reveals that some fans would prefer to experience for the first time this coming December. Still, you’d have to imagine it’s pretty unlikely we’re going to get anything like a Rey’s parents reveal, »

Disney and Lucasfilm debated the fate of Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

8 October 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having pushed for it during the production of 1983’s Return of the Jedi, Harrison Ford finally got his wish to see Han Solo killed off when he returned to the Star Wars Saga for 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It was certainly a bold move from Lucasfilm and director J.J. Abrams to dispense with one of the franchises’ most iconic characters – and it seems there was some internal discussions with Disney as to whether or not it was necessary to have Han die.

“We had a big debate about Han Solo,” Disney CEO Bob Iger told Vanity Fair. “Should he die or not? It was a decision made by Kennedy and Abrams, but I got involved.”

Despite Han’s death in The Force Awakens, we will of course be seeing the character back on the big screen next year, albeit as a younger version, as Alden Ehrenreich steps into »
