'Star Wars: Rogue One' Casts 'Sherlock' Star Jonathan Aris

27 July 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production set to begin very soon on Disney and LucasFilm's Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, the BBC reports that Sherlock actor Jonathan Aris has joined the cast. The actor's Spotlight profile, a website where actors and filmmakers can post their resumes, revealed that he is playing "Senator Jebel" in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. That listing was later removed from his page, so it's unclear if this is the confirmed character or not.

If, in fact, the actor has signed on for the Star Wars anthology movie, he will join a cast that includes Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed, Sam Claflin, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn and Forest Whitaker. The story centers on a group of Rebel Alliance soldiers who embark on a mission to steal plans for the original Death Star. The plot is set between the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and »

Top Ten Tuesday – Comic-Con 2015

21 July 2015 12:02 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Another San Diego Comic-Con International has come and gone. This year was a great year for films, friends, and fun! Check out my Top 10 cinematic moments from this years con. Also, be sure to share your favorite moments from this year. I’d love to hear from you! Now, let’s get started!

10. Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Let me start off by saying that I have not been looking forward to this film. I’m not stoked on the new batsuit, and disagree with their casting of Lex Luthor, simply because I feel as though the character should be older. Having said that, this is the best trailer that I have seem thus far, and I really hope that they prove me wrong. Check out the all new trailer that debuted in Hall H and let me know what you think!

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens': What We Learned at Comic-Con

16 July 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In the days leading into Comic-Con, Star Wars: The Force Awakens fans got some rather disheartening news. There would be no new trailer or footage from the movie shown during the massive Hall H panel on Friday night. Some thought it was all a ruse. "How could they hold a Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel, on Star Wars Day (traditionally every Friday at Sdcc), and Not show new footage?" Someone probably said and/or thought in the aftermath of this crushing news. Fans were assured that the panel would still be insightful and entertaining, and, guess what? Those assurances were not false by any means. It's true, director J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy and writer Lawrence Kasdan didn't unveil a new trailer or any actual footage from the movie itself, but they did reveal a fascinating behind-the-scenes video that shed plenty of new light on the production. »

A crashed First Order Tie Fighter on the desert sands of the planet Jakku isn't the only thing sizzling hot in today's Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Comic-Con behind-the-scenes footage reel.

Director J.J. Abrams, producer and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and writer Lawrence Kasdan brought Hall H to thunderous applause along with stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford with a nearly four-minute behind-the-scenes look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It was the perfect answer to earlier confirmation that Lucasfilm and Disney would not followup the awesome second Star Wars Episode VII trailer with a third at the big San Diego show.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Video Offers Amazing Behind-the-Scenes Look

11 July 2015 2:26 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

You may have heard that Star Wars: The Force Awakens descended upon Comic-Con today for a panel presentation in Hall H. All that we knew going into the panel was that director J.J. Abrams, producer and LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan would be present to discuss the highly-anticipated sequel, with the tantalizing tease of "special guests" also showing up. What we didn't know is that the entire main cast would arrive, with John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford taking to the Sdcc stage, with the filmmakers also presenting a wonderful three-minute behind-the-scenes video from the set.

The video gave us our first official look at Carrie Fisher's Princess Leia, who has not been featured in the first two trailers released thus far. The video also confirmed a long-believed rumor that Simon Pegg, who starred »

‘Star Wars’ panel feels the Force

11 July 2015 1:33 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

As has happened so often in recent years, a Disney-owned property delivered a Comic-Con show-stopper as Jj Abrams rounded off Friday’s Star Wars love-fest by inviting the entire 6,000-plus capacity of Hall H to a live concert.

The ensuing waterside performance by the San Diego Symphony behind the convention centre was a fitting finale to an evening of surprises in the company of old and new members of the storied sci-fi franchise that delighted the attending horde.

When news broke several weeks before Comic-Con that there would be no Marvel Studios presentation this year, there were ominous rumblings about the perceived lack of big hitters on show in San Diego.

Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: The Mockingjay – Part 2 panel on Thursday put paid to that notion as will, one presumes, Saturday’s scheduled sessions from Warner Bros, Fox, Quentin Tarantino and Legendary.

However there is nothing to match the panache, sheer fun and »

‘Star Wars,’ Harrison Ford Bring the Force to Comic-Con

10 July 2015 10:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star Wars” returned to Comic-Con with a rousing Hall H panel that proved the franchise is still a force to be reckoned with, nearly 40 years after the first movie’s release.

Fans who camped outside the San Diego Convention Center were treated to a behind-the-scenes making of “The Force Awakens” as well as a surprise concert after the Hall H panel. But it was Star Wars’ rich cinematic legacy that stole the show on Friday night. Well, that and Han Solo.

In a rare emotional moment, Harrison Ford, after receiving a standing ovation, fought back tears as he expressed his gratitude for the series.

“The original Star Wars was the beginning of my working life,” he said, visibly moved. “I was very happy to be a part of the story and the cast again.”

It was Ford’s first public appearance since crashing his plane in March, which left him hospitalized. »

Comic-Con 2015: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Panel

10 July 2015 8:55 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After all the rumours about potential announcements, a line snaking towards Hall H that seemed to stretch all the way to Dagobah and to have started roughly when the original Star Wars was in cinemas, it was finally time for co-writer/director/producer J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm boss/producer Kathleen Kennedy to bring Star Wars: The Force Awakens to Comic-Con. And despite a panel that seemed to look back as much as forward, the definite highlight was an excellent peek behind the scenes of the new film, which you can watch below. Along for the panel with Abrams and Kennedy were an assortment of faces old and new to the franchise, with co-writer Lawrence Kasdan brought out first. “There is nothing normal about getting to write a movie with Lawrence Kasdan,” admitted Abrams about his experience so far. “I’ve sat down with John Williams to show him scenes »
