The news that Brown was in talks for the role broke last month. However, the actor’s reps confirm to Variety that the deal has now closed.
Brown joins previously announced stars Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, and Jacob Tremblay. Holbrook, who replaced Benicio del Toro in October, will be playing a soldier, while Rhodes and Key will play ex-marines, and Munn will portray a scientist.
Shane Black is directing from a script by himself and Fred Dekker. John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon, who produced the original, are returning to produce the latest installment. Plot details have largely been kept under wraps.
Brown has certainly had a moment over the past year, »

Josh Gad is currently busy filming Murder on the Orient Express. It just so happens that the movie co-stars Daisy Ridley, who had her breakout in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will be reprising her role as Rey in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Over the last month or so, Josh Gad has been posting videos to his Instagram in which he has been pestering Daisy Ridley for spoilers. Today, he has posted yet another video and truly outdone himself, having enlisted the help of quite a few very famous people to ask her questions she most definitely isn't allowed to answer.
In the Instagram video, Josh Gad starts off by apologizing to Daisy Ridley for what has been going on over the course of the last month or so and she looks like she really isn't having it. He then promises that he has »
Big movie studios generally like to keep some level of secrecy in place when it comes to highly-anticipated movies, but when it comes to Star Wars, it is on an entirely different level. Disney and Lucasfilm only recently revealed that the official title for Star Wars 8 is Star Wars: The Last Jedi and we still haven't seen a shred of footage. There are also still a lot of unknowns with a lot of the characters in the movie, like Benicio Del Toro, who has been added to the Star Wars universe for this installment. Details on his character have been very sparse, but now it looks like we may know who he is playing, and it is potentially a very big deal.
Warning: this article may contain spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. YouTuber Mike Zeroh recently uploaded a new video to his YouTube channel that deals »
When it comes to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it seems that you can’t go more than a day or two without a new rumor hitting the web. That’s especially true in recent weeks, as we inch closer to not only the film’s release, but also its first trailer, which will be shown at Star Wars Celebration in April. Given that we’ve seen next to nothing from the Rian Johnson-helmed movie yet, the upcoming trailer is a massive deal and already, speculation in regards to what we may get from it has been kicked into overdrive.
Now, fuelling the hype train even more is YouTube user Mike Zeroh, who just earlier brought us some interesting news on Benicio del Toro’s mysterious character. This time around, however, he’s got a scoop on the trailer, as he believes he knows what it’ll show off. »

While J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and even Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to some extent, fell victim to numerous leaks during production, Disney tightened up security tremendously for Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and even though the film is now only about 10 months away, we still know next to nothing about it. Plot details are scarce and a number of the roles haven’t been revealed yet.
One of the more mysterious casting additions throughout production has always been Benicio del Toro. Fans have put forth theory after theory all trying to figure out who the esteemed actor might be playing, but no one’s cracked the case just yet. Until now, that is.
YouTube user Mike Zeroh claims to have stumbled upon something very interesting, as he tells us that del Toro was originally listed on Wikiwand.com as playing Vikrum Fett. »

From the moment the title was announced last month, there’s been intense debate as to whether the ‘Last Jedi’ in Star Wars: The Last Jedi relates to Luke Skywalker, or if it’s referring to more than one Jedi.
Well, it seems we now have our answer, as the French, Italian and Spanish language posters have revealed the international titles as Les Derniers Jedi, Gli Ultimi Jedi and Los Ultimos Jedi, with ‘Les’, ‘Gli’ and ‘Los’ being used when the following noun is plural.
So, given that it’s plural, we’re presumably we’re talking about Luke and Rey with ‘The Last Jedi’, seeing as Yoda told Luke he was the last of the ancient order in Return of the Jedi, and Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren slaughtered Luke’s new recruits prior to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Or is it possible there »

Soundtracked by Del Shannon's "Runaway," the trailer sets up the film's plot – although "plot" is a loose construct in Malick's recent films – as Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara portray a pair of indie rockers that fall in love in the Texas capital. Complicating matters is Michael Fassbender's smooth-talking music mogul and a waitress played by Natalie Portman, with »
Music, sex, rock ‘n roll….”Song To Song” (formerly titled “Weightless“) doesn’t sound like your average Terrence Malick movie, and perhaps that’s what makes this latest entry from the suddenly prolific director so intriguing (don’t forget, he’s already wrapped his next movie, the WWII pic “Radegund“). But some things remain the same, including his bonkers ensemble.
Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., Angela Bettis, Bérénice Marlohe, Florence Welch, and Holly Hunter all star in the movie set against the backdrop of the Austin music scene, where relationships collide.

With its March 17 theatrical release fast approaching from Broad Green Pictures, Terrence Malick’s third feature in three years — after Knight of Cups and Voyage of Time — Song to Song has finally graced us with a trailer.
The Austin-set drama is but a part of what’s been an active few years for Malick. In addition to shooting three narrative features, the filmmaker produced twin documentaries (Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience and Voyage of Time: Life’s Journey), approved a Criterion restoration of his 2005 film The New World (with The Tree of Life rumored to arrive this summer), and even appeared in person for a rare on-stage conversation. (And, best of all, yet another new feature may be premiering by year’s end.)

Ever since the title The Last Jedi was announced for Star Wars 8, fans have speculated and wondered if it was plural, as the word Jedi can refer to one or many. The answer finally arrives with a number of international titles for the sequel. It has been pretty much confirmed that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is indeed plural.
This means that Luke Skywalker, Rey, Ben Solo and even Snoke can all be the last of the Jedi. Which makes it a little less fun in trying to figure out who the actual last one may be. Now, it's a wide open mystery. All of these characters are confirmed to return in the movie. And The Last Jedi is still more than 10 months away, and we haven't even seen the first teaser trailer yet. That will arrive during Star Wars Celebration in April if we're to believe the hype. »
Legendary filmmaker Terrence Malick’s latest offering Song to Song (formerly titled Weightless) is set to open in North American next month, and Broad Green Pictures has now released the first poster for the film featuring Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling, and Rooney Mara; check it out below and take a look at the first official image here…
Update: And here is the first trailer…
“In this modern love story set against the Austin, Texas music scene, two entangled couples — struggling songwriters Faye (Rooney Mara) and Bv (Ryan Gosling), and music mogul Cook (Michael Fassbender) and the waitress whom he ensnares (Natalie Portman) — chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.”
Song to Song is set for release on March 17th and features a cast that also includes Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Haley Bennett, Val Kilmer, Benicio del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., and Bérénice Marlohe. »

While we know that Daisy Ridley’s Rey is going to spend much of Star Wars: The Last Jedi training and adventuring with Luke Skywalker, it’s really anyone’s guess as to what roles John Boyega’s Finn and Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron will play in Episode VIII this December, but thanks to Making Star Wars we may have some details as to the adventure Finn will find himself on for the Resistance.
Now, when it comes to Star Wars rumours, a lot of sites churn out speculation (and outright fabrication), but Making Star Wars has proven itself to be extremely reliable, so there’s a good chance this information is accurate. There’s nothing majorly spoilery here, but if you don’t want to know anything about The Last Jedi before its release, you should stop reading now.

Update: See the trailer here.
The first of two new Terrence Malick films this year will premiere in less than a month, and arrive in theaters in almost exactly four weeks. While we’re still waiting on the trailer for Song to Song, Broad Green Pictures have now unveiled its first poster ahead of an SXSW premiere. The film was recently rated R for “some sexuality, nudity, drug use and language,” and this colorful one-sheet features our main four leads behind an LP — fitting for the music-heavy project.
It’s definitely starring Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman, and Cate Blanchett, and maybe also featuring Haley Bennett, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., Angela Bettis, Bérénice Marlohe, Florence Welch, and Holly Hunter. We’ve heard the trailer will be out as early as next week, so check back soon. In the meantime, see the poster and synopsis below. »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson (who has been extremely secretive of the project, as he should be) recently took to Tumblr to share a set photo from the film showing off a line of Stormtroopers marching in formation. Oddly, one of them has his helmet lifted up…
Johnson also teased the film’s presence at Star Wars Celebration coming up in April, saying “We’re coming to Orlando for a Star Wars Celebration panel on April 14th, and I cannot wait. See you there!”
It is very well possible that Celebration will be the time and place we first get footage of the hotly anticipated next chapter in the beloved saga.

The Star Wars world had a pretty rough go last year. Not only did we lose Carrie Fisher all too soon, but Kenny Baker, who brought R2-D2 to life in all seven Star Wars movies prior to Rogue One also passed away. As sad as his passing was, R2-D2 is still going to continue to be a part of a galaxy far, far away in the future, starting with Star Wars: The Last Jedi later this year. It has now been revealed that 57-year-old actor Jimmy Vee will be filling those very big shoes and portraying R2-D2 in Star Wars 8.
According to Express, Jimmy Vee, who starred in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and has also worked quite a bit in Doctor Who over the years will now be the man responsible for bringing R2-D2 to the big screen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. He actually »
Vee, who also worked uncredited on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, released a statement which reads: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to have worked alongside the legendary Kenny Baker. Kenny was a fantastic actor and taught me all the ‘tricks’ on how he brought R2-D2 to life which I will continue to portray in his honor. I’m so excited to be a part of the Star Wars universe and can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve been working so hard on for the last year.
We're thrilled to announce that #OhSoSmall actor @RealJimmyVee is the new #R2D2!

As excitement builds for our first peek at Star Wars: The Last Jedi, rumours have been doing the rounds that, much like the marketing campaign for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker will be absent from the teaser trailer. Well, according to Star Wars News Net, that is not the case after all, and Luke will reportedly be one of the featured characters in the heavily-anticipated teaser for The Last Jedi alongside Leia (Carrie Fisher), Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley).
There are rumors that Luke will not be in the first #TheLastJedi teaser. We heard the contrary. Luke, Leia, Finn and Rey will be there…

With Star Wars Celebration 2017 just a couple of months away, it is all but assured that we will be seeing our first footage from Star Wars 8 in the relatively near future. Details about the next installment of the Skywalker saga have been kept under wraps in a big way, but Disney and Lucasfilm have to give fans a teaser at some point and the question becomes, what or who will we see in the first teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi? We may now have some idea and the good news is, Luke is going to be in it.
The folks at Star Wars News Net recently took to Twitter in order to share some very important and welcomed information with their fans. It turns out there have been some rumors circulating that the first teaser for The Last Jedi wouldn't feature Luke Skywalker in it, which would serve as a major disappointment. »
We probably won't be seeing any kind of footage from Star Wars: The Last Jedi for a couple of months, until Star Wars Celebration rolls around, but ever since the reveal of the title, there has been a lot of talk surrounding the next installment of the Skywalker saga. As much as people are excited to get some significant time with Luke Skywalker and to see Carrie Fisher's last turn as Princess Leia, they are probably equally as excited to see what happens with Rey and Kylo Ren. It looks like one of the things we may be is exploring is a "mysterious connection" between those two.
Recently, Lucasfilm updated the official Star Wars website. Specifically, they added a couple of interesting bits to both Rey and Kylo Ren's databank entries. While it was quite obvious to many Star Wars fans that the two shared some kind of »
