Meet New Star Wars Droid K-2So in the Latest Rogue One Photos

22 August 2016 12:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Empire Magazine revealed two new covers for their upcoming print issue featuring characters from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The first cover showed Jyn Erso and her team of Rebels, while the second offered a closer look at the main villain, Ben Mendelsohn's Director Orson Krennic. The publication promised a new subscribers' cover debuting on Monday, and, true to their word, that image has been revealed, featuring none other than the new droid, K-2So.

K-2So was actually featured on the first Empire magazine cover, seen towering over Jyn Erso and the rest of her Rebel team, but this image gives us a much closer look at this "military enforcer droid," which is voiced and performed in motion capture by Alan Tudyk. This subscribers cover is designed as a "technical drawing" for K-2So, and at the bottom it says this is a "Classified Document" of the Imperial Army. »

Rogue One Villain Director Krennic Invades the New Empire Cover

19 August 2016 3:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, Empire Magazine revealed some of the Star Wars Rebels from the upcoming spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on the cover of their upcoming issue. The publication also teased that a second cover image would debut today, with a third arriving on Monday. True to their word, Empire has unveiled a new cover, featuring Ben Mendelsohn's Director Orson Krennic along with some of his Deathtroopers.

It isn't known who will be featured on the third Empire cover, but we'll bring you that image as soon as it surfaces. We first learned about Director Krennic a few months ago, through a preview of LucasFilm's official companion book to the movie. This book revealed that Krennic serves as the military director of the Empire, to defend the Galactic Empire against the Rebels mission to steal the Death Star plans.

The cover also features another look at the droid K-2So, voiced and performed through motion capture by Alan Tudyk. This cover image also puts into perspective just how »

Hey, Steven Bochco, tell us how you really feel about David Caruso!

In the überproducer’s new memoir, Truth Is a Total Defense, the NYPD Blue co-creator chronicles the events that led up to the controversial departure of Caruso in Season 2. And it ain’t pretty.

On Thursday, Disney and Lucasfilm released the second trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, December’s hotly-anticipated first standalone movie set in the galaxy far, far away [check out the trailer here if you want to watch it again]. Our writing team was overwhelmingly blown away by the first teaser, but has that excitement carried over to the main trailer? Here’s our reaction…

Chris Cooper: This really gives me the feeling that it’s Star Wars made by people who grew up with it. We get all the props and the right look, but with a new style. A style that at several points here looks stunning. Jyn facing down a Tie. The eclipse. How the Star Destroyers are shot. Beautiful. Really looking forward to this.

Inside Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Get Down,’ The Best $120 Million Netflix Ever Spent

11 August 2016 9:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Baz Luhrmann has always had ambition. From his sweeping Cannes debut “Strictly Ballroom” to his wholly reimagined take on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby,” he’s always been known for an uncompromising vision.

And whether you’re taken aback by Luhrmann’s manic, melodic, cinematic constructions or addicted to his propulsive filmmaking style, it should come as no surprise that his first foray into serialized storytelling is as wild as it is ambitious.

Labeled “among the most expensive [TV series] in history” by Variety’s Cynthia Littleton (and only pseudo-refuted by Luhrmann in THR’s follow-up story), “The Get Down” was, indeed, a lengthy production featuring many moving pieces, a non-traditional episodic structure and a young, largely untested cast. But it was not a project Luhrmann entered into lightly — nor were its challenges driven by the wrong reasons. Luhrmann was steering the ship the whole way, making decisions based on »

The Get Down Season 1 Review

10 August 2016 10:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast. 

Decadent, dazzling, disorderly, and altogether more than a little dizzying, Netflix’s The Get Down (its biggest original series to date, as well as one of the expensive television shows ever made) is unmistakably a work of Baz Luhrmann, who’s been drawn to theatrical romance and aesthetic excess like a moth to flame since his directorial debut. Its gluttonous premiere clocks in at a mammoth 92 minutes, resplendent with pop-pastiche posturing and far too many characters all clamoring for attention within its larger-than-life setting (1977 The Bronx by way of an adrenalized, Nwa-influenced West Side Story). And the subsequent two episodes made available for review, though considerably tighter than their predecessor, still suffer from its commitment to an epic sprawl it can never quite do justice.

Still, Luhrmann’s ambitions are written plainly across every frame of the series. Each installment includes one if »

Riz Ahmed discusses his character Bodhi Rook in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

10 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story set to arrive on Thursday [watch a teaser here], Riz Ahmed has been speaking to Entertainment Weekly about his character Bodhi Rook, a former Imperial pilot who has defected to the Rebellion.

“A character like Bodhi is not born into the life of a soldier,” states Ahmed. “He’s a pilot working for the Empire, doing his job, getting on with it. But when you put ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, it can freak them out. It can inspire deep passions. So I’m gonna defend Bodhi.”

“Everyone in this Star Wars movie has got quite a complex past”, he continues. “They have a lot of baggage and history to it. That’s part of what makes it an interesting, nuanced movie. It’s taking characters with interesting backgrounds, whether it’s warrior monks, or ex-assassins, or long-distance truck drivers, and you’re assembling this pack of misfits. »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story director Gareth Edwards discusses the planet Jedha, a “holy land” for followers of the Force

9 August 2016 7:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a new trailer set to arrive this week, Gareth Edwards has been speaking to Entertainment Weekly about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, with the director offering up some insight into the planet Jedha, which is set to feature heavily in the film and is described as a “holy land” for those who follow the Force.

“The Force is basically in Star Wars like a religion, and they’re losing their faith in the period that we start the movie,” states Edwards. “We were trying to find a physical location we could go to that would speak to the themes of losing your faith and the choice between letting the Empire win, or evil win, and good prevailing. It got embodied in this place we called Jedha.”

“It’s a place where people who believe in the Force would go on a pilgrimage,” he continues. “It was essentially taken over by the Empire. »

Gareth Edwards Talks About The Jedi Mecca Jedha In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

8 August 2016 1:24 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

By the time Star Wars: A New Hope begins, the Force and the Jedi are in pretty bad shape. The likes of Han Solo and much of the Empire have for years dismissed the "religion" as old and hokey, as is evidenced by many lines in the film. Given this fact, and the fact that the characters in the upcoming anthology film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story are not Jedi, it was pretty much assumed that there'd be little or no connection to the Force this time around.

Looks like I was wrong...sort of. In a recent report from Entertainment Weekly, the outlet discussed a planet by the name of Jedha with Rogue One director Gareth Edwards. After re-iterating the fact that in A New Hope, the Force is nothing more than religion, Edwards said:

“We were trying to find a physical location we could go to that »
