Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, the first Star Wars spinoff, is starting to take shape, with a growing cast that includes Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed, Sam Claflin, Diego Luna, and Forest Whitaker already set to star. The story has been confirmed to center on a band of resistance fighters who unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans, but there is still very little we know about what roles these actors are playing. Today on Meet the Movie Press, El Mayimbe dropped a new rumor that reveals Felicity Jones is playing the daughter of Boba Fett.
El Mayimbe himself even stated that this piece of information is a rumor which has not been confirmed, so it could turn out to be completely false. Then again, Boba Fett has long been rumored to have some sort of presence in this spinoff, so it wouldn't be surprising to learn »
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 »
One of the biggest dangling threads in "Jurassic World" is the fate of Dr. Henry Wu. I thought it was fun casting to bring B.D. Wong back for "Jurassic World," but when I saw the film, I was surprised by just how much screen time they gave him and how clearly he's turned the corner from "bright guy hired by Hammond to do something fantastic and ethically questionable" to "mad scientist screwing his theme park bosses while coming up with some sinister applications for his work." What surprised me more was that they let him live. After all, "Jurassic World" is unafraid to kill even the most peripheral character in violent and preposterous manners, so why wouldn't they kill the man responsible for creating the just-plain-evil dinosaur that's running around eating everyone? The obvious answer is that they still need him, and sure enough, "Jurassic World" makes it clear that Dr. »

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!
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!

Benicio Del Toro has been offered the main villain role in Star Wars: Episode VIII by Disney and LucasFilm. The Wrap reports that discussions are in very early stages, but the actor is Disney's top choice for the role. Neither Disney nor LucasFilm had any comment about the potential casting, and no details were given for the character.
If Benicio Del Toro does sign on, he will be the first confirmed cast member for Star Wars 8, which will be written and directed by Rian Johnson. It is believed that Star Wars: The Force Awakens stars John Boyega (Finn), Daisy Ridley (Rey) and Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) will reprise their roles in Star Wars: Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX, but that has yet to be confirmed. Production is expected to begin early next year, with the studios already setting a May 26, 2017 release date.
A deal is still far away from coming together and who exactly Del Toro will be playing is unknown, but insiders say the studio was going after A-list talent for the role, also meeting Joaquin Phoenix for the role.
Del Toro was previously considered for the bad guy in another major franchise: Khan in “Star Trek Into Darkness.” Though negotiations fell through, Del Toro recently appeared as »

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. »

The main attraction for Day Two of San Diego Comic Con was the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel. Thousands lined up to get into the cavernous Hall H, the biggest of the venues at Comic-Con and the long hours of waiting around paid off in spades. Not only did the fans become the first ones to experience the new behind-the-scene footage, but they also got to witness first hand the return of Harrison “Han Solo” Ford, making his first public appearance since his terrible plane crash. And if that wasn’t enough, at the end of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel, director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy invited all 7,000 fans in attendance to a secret live orchestra concert! They literally escorted everyone out of Hall H and guided them a few blocks away to an outdoor venue, and gave everyone a Hasbro toy Lightsaber! »

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.
I don't want to be the herald of spoilers by describing anything seen in the footage before you get a chance to check it out yourself. Watch it below once »

San Diego (AP) - The cast and filmmakers of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" debuted a new behind-the-scenes reel and teased some new information at Comic-Con about the highly secretive film to a rapturous Hall H audience.
Ford, making his first public appearance since his plane crash in March left him hospitalized and injured, assured the audience and host Chris Hardwick that he was fine. The already excitable crowd exploded when Ford, the last to be introduced, walked out.
Seated next to Hamill, the gruff Ford was not hesitant to talk about his reluctance to revisit the world of "Star Wars" and the character of Han Solo.

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 »
