Oscar-winning 'Apollo 13' sound mixer set for career achievement honor

29 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Whether you knew it or not, you've been listening to sound mixer David Macmillan's work for years. There's early stuff, like "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," "Birdy" and "SpaceCamp" (yes!). There's recent stuff like "Twilight," "Hancock" and "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin." And there's the Oscar-winning stuff scattered throughout, like "The Right Stuff," "Speed" and "Apollo 13." The guy is a legend in the field, so of course he's a great fit for the Cinema Audio Society's (Cas) Career Achievement Award. Macmillan began his career over half a century ago as an apprentice in Canadian television before eventually connecting with Francis Ford Coppola. The "Godfather" director was in the process of building American Zoetrope in San Francisco and hired Macmillan to run the company's mixing facility. From there, his career took off. He has more than 80 feature films to his credit, the three aforementioned Oscars (he won every time he was nominated), collaborations with Oliver Stone, »

Required Reading: Adult Adolescence and ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’

15 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “The Death of Adulthood and the Rise of Pleasure, or Why Seth Rogen is More Serious Than Woody Allen” — Adam Sternbergh’s response to A.O. Scott’s thought-catalyst on maturity, pointing out the age-old element of these discussions and the kernel at their core. “Cultural essays about the death of adulthood are often Trojan horses for a different complaint: the death of seriousness. These essays read as modern analogues to the mid-20th-century jeremiads about middlebrow, which were, similarly, taking people to task for not being sophisticated (i.e., adult) enough in their cultural tastes.” “The Darkness of Kristen Wiig” — Noah Gittell at Esquire finds seriousness in the funny woman’s latest films (and in her earlier funnier ones). “How Julia Roberts became an icon by playing the Girl Next Door” — Matt Singer »

Will 'Star Wars 7' Return to Dagobah?

12 September 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Previous Star Wars: Episode VII rumors have claimed that the movie will visit old locations from the previous movies, including Hoth, Endor, and Tatooine. Now, a new rumor is throwing Yoda's exile planet of Dagobah into the mix. Stop reading now if you don't want to know how the planet plays into the proposed storyline.

Last week, new details emerged about how Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) fits into the Star Wars: Episode VII storyline, from a tipster who reportedly read the second draft of J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan's screenplay. It was hinted that Luke may be swayed towards the Dark Side of the Force.

Today, we have a new report from This Is Infamous that reveals more details about Luke Skywalker's character arc. It's been widely reported, but never confirmed, that the story centers on John Boyega and Daisy Ridley's characters, who find a severed hand with »

Several months ago, a poster on the web boards 4Chan posted numerous unconfirmed plot details regarding "Star Wars: Episode VII" which supposedly came from the second draft of J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan's script.

'Star Wars: Episode VII' Resumes Filming as Harrison Ford's Leg Heals

29 August 2014 6:57 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Not even a broken leg can keep Han Solo down. Production on Star Wars: Episode VII has resumed this week at London's Pinewood Studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter, following Harrison Ford's on-set injury (allegedly involving Han Solo's Millennium Falcon) and subsequent surgery, which put the sequel on a two-month filming hiatus.

Ford, who was healed enough to take the Als Ice Bucket Challenge last week, will reprise his role in the film, along with original cast members Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. »

A Villain Potentially Returns In New "Star Wars"

23 August 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Potential Spoilers Ahead

A year ago came a report that an evil character from previous "Star Wars" films will appear in at least one of the upcoming new "Star Wars" trilogy films despite his apparent death. That character? Emperor Palpatine.

The report came from Latino Review who has just published another one today saying a similar thing but with a bit more information:

"Two independent sources have recently written to us to confirm something we had heard back when production first began. Even though Star Wars: Episode VII (as well as the following two sequels) will feature its share of new villains, the person pulling the strings, the real puppet master, the big bad of the trilogy is none other than Emperor Palpatine.

A lot can happen during the fall of an Empire, and maybe the moments we took to see our heroes party with the Ewoks was a forced »

Rumor: Evil Character To Return For Star Wars VII

22 August 2014 11:21 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

This may seem like deja vu. A year ago, Kellvin from Latino Review reported that Emperor Palpatine was going to appear in the new Star Wars films, and today he is saying the same thing. Now, before any of you freak out, remember that the script a year ago was written by Michael Arndt, but today that script has been heavily changed by J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan. I believe most, if not all of Arndt's material was tossed. Though, it seems that J.J. and Kasdan liked Arndt's idea of bringing Darth Sidious back from the dead. I mean, if he really died after Darth Vader tossed him like a ragdoll. "My source told me that The Emperor "100%" will appear in Star Wars Episode VII and VIII. Don't look for confirmations from this from Ian Mcdiarmid, because he's not portraying the Emperor this time. Will this big bad resemble »

'Star Wars Episode VII': Sorting out the truth, rumor and speculation so far

18 August 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It is a fascinating moment to be a "Star Wars" fan. Right now, there is arguably more energy being expended on all things "Star Wars" than ever before. I remember the feeling in the early days of development on what became "Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace," when there were just rumbles of a possible new film or even *Gasp!* a new trilogy of films. Hell, I remember when the Special Editions were just a rumor. I remember when a friend of mine called and said, "They're not a rumor. I have something to show you." He came by my house with a videotape, and on that videotape was the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: A New Hope - The Special Edition," the very first new "Star Wars" footage in what had been fourteen years at that point. It was mind-blowing. It made me reassess »

9 Biggest Star Wars 7 Rumours Right Now

18 August 2014 6:37 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lucasfilm

Here’s what we know for sure about Star Wars Episode VII so far: they started filming on May 16 of this year and it’ll be released on December 18, 2015. Jj Abrams will direct from a script by him and Lawrence Kasdan. It’s got a pretty great cast, with both new actors and returning stars from the original trilogy. It will be set thirty years after Return Of The Jedi. And, er, that’s about it, so far as official information goes. Abrams is being his usual coy self, playing his cards close to the chest, with character and plot details pretty thin on the ground so far. Life finds a way, however, and between speculation and possibly legit leaks, we actually have a pretty good idea of what’s going to be going down in a few months from now, in a cinema not so far away…

Who’s next in line for Star Wars director duties?

12 August 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gavin Logan looks at which directors could be in line for a Star Wars movie….

It’s now been almost two years since Disney officially acquired LucasFilm and with it the rights to the Star Wars universe. George Lucas said in his statement that he always believed that Star Wars could live beyond him and that the time was right for the torch to be passed to a new generation of filmmakers. First up was J.J. Abrams, fresh off his successful reboot of Star Trek. Abrams, while not exactly young and new to the industry, has a certain Spielberg-esque quality about the way he makes movies and seemed like the perfect fit for relaunching the Star Wars franchise. Once Abrams was nailed down and he and Lawrence Kasdan began reworking Michael Arndt’s script, little or no other details were announced despite incessant rumours flying around the internet.
