'Star Wars 7' Concept Art Reveals New Characters and Vehicles

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A group of Bothan spies have pulled off an incredible job, retrieving some truly beautiful new concept artwork from Star Wars: Episode VII that proves a lot of the recent rumors to be true while giving us a good look at some of the character designs, specifically the main villain and Daisy Ridley, along with a look at her rumored home and some of the vehicles that will be utilized throughout this epic space adventure. This latest art also gives us a good look at some of the aliens and ideas being put on display in December 2015.

Suffice it to say, this story contains some Major Spoilers so tread carefully. This is a pretty big reveal, and J.J. Abrams is probably on the hunt to have someone fired today. A source from Star Wars Underworld's claims that these images are legit, and they do line up with a lot of »

Brad Bird Talks Having to Pass on Star Wars Episode VII to Finish Tomorrowland

13 October 2014 5:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The New York Comic Con marked the true arrival of director Brad Bird's new film Tomorrowland upon the global conscience.  While the picture won't be out until May 22nd, we hadn't seen anything from the film at all until the trailer and poster popped up at Nycc and Bird (along with co-writer Damon Lindelof) started doing press.  During that press Bird was asked what it was like to have to turn down Star Wars: Episode VII in order to work on his new film with George Clooney.  What's even more interesting about this exchange is that it seems like Bird was also up for Episode VIII if you break down the timetable of his comments. Hit the jump for more on Brad Bird and Star Wars: Episode 7, which J.J. Abrams is of course currently shooting. The film stars John BoyegaDaisy RidleyHarrison FordAdam DriverMark Hamill, »

'Robin Hood' Remake with a New Spin Lands at Sony

6 October 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures has acquired a pitch for a new Robin Hood movie after a heated bidding war between several studio competitors such as Working Title Films and Paramount Pictures.

Cory Goodman (The Last Witch Hunter) and Jeremy Lott (Lore) brought their pitch to Sony, which was reportedly sold for a low seven-figure sum. No story details were given, except that it will be a re-imagining of the classic Robin Hood story, following the title character who robs from the rich and gives to the poor.

Universal Pictures released the most recent version of Robin Hood back in 2010, which starred Russell Crowe as the title character alongside Cate Blanchett, Max von Sydow, William Hurt, Mark Strong and Oscar Isaac. The film, directed by Ridley Scott, took in over $300 million worldwide, although it was received poorly by fans and critics alike.

Robin Hood's story has been told in countless feature and TV adaptations throughout the years, »

Satanic Sunday: Ranking Portrayals of the Devil

5 October 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s hard to nail down the personification of the ultimate evil. The Prince of Darkness deserves to be more than just a cackling, dark figure in the background or an over-the-top sleaze.  This is an angel who has been cast out of Heaven and carries a major grudge. Neglecting the depth of his pain or not seizing the opportunity to have a little fun in the exercise of his machinations is always a problem, with no discernible representation able to strike a perfect balance yet. The best contemporary performances on film leave something to the imagination and twist our perception of the iconic role just enough to make it seem fresh or threatening. What follows is a list of cinematic Satans that have made an indelible impression, ranked from worst to best.

The top 25 must-see movies of 2015

2 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…

Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein. 

What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »

Following on from yesterday's blink and you'd have missed it rumored leak of footage from "Star Wars: Episode VII," Badass Digest has posted up a new scoop which reportedly reveals a bit more about the characters played by Daisy Ridley and Max von Sydow.

Potential Major Spoilers Ahead

The report ties into the one back in July that the film apparently starts out with the discovery of a severed hand with a light saber attached to it which sets Daisy Ridley and John Boyega's characters on their adventure. Today's details say that isn't quite right:

"It isn't these characters who discover the light saber, but rather a 'blue alien guy' who brings the Jedi relic to a salvage yard where Daisy Ridley's character, reportedly named Kira, is hanging out with Max von Sydow.

The actor is playing an older 'cyborg dude' who may possibly be suffering from dementia, »
