Mark Hamill Goes to the Dark Side at Jason Reitman’s Live Reading of ‘The Empire Strikes Back’

19 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Welcome to the first live screening of ‘The Interview!’”

So teased Jason Reitman at the start of Thursday’s live reading of “The Empire Strikes Back” held in downtown Los Angeles. The event, part of Film Independent’s Live Read series, was moved from its previous home at Lacma to the larger Ace Hotel Theatre due to audience demand.

“We needed a few more seats for this one,” quipped Reitman, who directs the events.

Costumed characters dressed as Stormtroopers and X-Wing Pilots entertained fans outside the historic theater, while a fully-motorized R2-D2 posed for photos inside the lobby as John Williams’ classic theme music played in the background.

But it was the surprise appearance of beloved Star Wars icon Mark Hamill, reading the roles of Obi-Wan Kenobi and The Emperor, that brought the audience to its feet for a spontaneous standing ovation.

“I hope I pass the audition,” Hamill joked as the applause continued. »

THR has released an official list of the most viewed trailers of 2014. And you may be surprised to see which movie came in first. While a lot of your are probably guessing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was actually Fifty Shades of Grey that took top honors. While Star Wars: The Force Awakens had the best start of the year, grabbing 58.2 million views in its first five days of release, it was Fifty Shades of Grey that won the race with its four month head start. The trailer has been viewed 93 million times on Youtube since its July 24 release. Don't feel too bad for Star Wars 7, though, as it came in second place with 81 million Youtube views since its debut over Thanksgiving weekend. In third place was Avengers: Age of Ultron with 78 million views. Here is the full top 20 list of most watched trailers followed by the trailers themselves. »

New Wild Card Trailer a Vast Improvement; Looks Like Jason Statham’s Best Movie In Years

12 December 2014 10:44 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I like Jason Statham.  I especially like him in other people's movies because, as a rule, the sub-genre that's basically come to be known as "Jason Statham movies" isn't really my thing.  I get the appeal, it's just not for me.  But Wild Card (while still not exactly in my wheelhouse) looks like it has more personality than your standard Statham fare.  For one, it's got a better cast.  And, with a script by the legendary William Goldman (who, to be fair, had seen better years prior to writing Dreamcatcher with Lawrence Kasdan), it looks like it has a lot more personality than some of his other films.  This new trailer is also light years better than the international one released a few weeks ago. Hit the jump to check out the Wild Card trailer.  The film, directed by Simon West, also stars Michael Angarano, Milo Ventimiglia, Dominik García-Lorido, Anne Heche, »

I haven't seen it yet."

Trailer Trashin': The Galactic Saga Continues in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

6 December 2014 8:06 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Yes, dear readers, I must again apologize for making you go so long between installments of this column. But I’m finally back, because last week brought us a trailer far too big to ignore. Without further ado, join me as I examine the first look at what’s sure to be one of next year’s biggest films, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Premise: Set approximately thirty years after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983), the film will star a trio of new leads along with returning actors from the previous installments.

My take: Like most children of the 1990s, I grew up loving the Star Wars trilogy. A New Hope (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Return of the Jedi were some of my favorite films when I was a kid, and played a huge role in the development of my current love of cinema.

Is Andy Serkis Tackling Multiple Roles In Star Wars: The Force Awakens?

1 December 2014 2:17 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After Disney effectively broke the Internet on Friday morning with the release of the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fan chatter began in earnest. Analysis, theories, grumbles… you name an angle and a topic and it’s been thoroughly decimated with a fine-toothed comb by die-hard Wars fans.

One of the biggest mysteries to arise however, concerned the identity of the voiceover artist. Many pegged it as Benedict Cumberbatch, whose name was linked to the sequel in the early days, but failed to materialise in later publicity. Luckily, a couple of intrepid sites received solid intel verifying that the actor lending his voice to the sinister voiceover was none other than cast member, Andy Serkis.

Since it was announced that Serkis was cast in the film, many naturally assumed his part would be of the mo-cap variety. After all, he’s made a name in creating »

John Boyega Responds To The Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Reaction

30 November 2014 2:57 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

I think it's fair to say the majority of us dug the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser (personally I'm still watching it repeatedly), and actor John Boyega clearly shares in the huge amount of enthusiasm and anticipation it has generated among fans. He's taken to Instagram to post this message. Though the majority of it is highly positive, he does seem to address those that have taken issue with certain things in the trailer...perhaps even the very small amount of racist asshats who've voiced their displeasure in seeing a black guy play a Storm Trooper.   With love xxx Фото опубликовано @jboyega ноя 11, 2014 at 1:37 Pst Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters December 18, 2015.
