‘Star Wars’ Extras Become the Leads in New Documentary ‘Elstree 1976′

8 May 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I think it was Andy Warhol who said that everyone associated with Star Wars will be world-famous for 15 trillion minutes. Maybe I made that up, and maybe I have a personal reason for knowing it’s not necessarily true of everyone associated with George Lucas’s game-changing movie, but it does at least seem that Star Wars mania allows for anyone involved in the first or any subsequent installment to be an icon of sorts for the millions of fans out there. Even Jake Lloyd and Ahmed Best are embraced by many at conventions. And according to a new documentary in the works, plenty of extras can show up to events and have a line of people waiting to get their autograph. Of course, almost every extra appearing on screen in the original Star Wars movie plays a character with a name and maybe even an action figure. Very few are recognizable by name and most aren »

Star Wars: 10 things you never knew about the galaxy far, far away

8 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Filming is about to commence on Star Wars: Episode VII, Jj Abrams's hotly-anticipated sequel that picks up the story 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi.

With almost 40 years of history - encompassing films, TV, comic books, video games and novels - there's a wealth of interesting facts and information about the vast universe hatched by George Lucas.

Here are ten fast facts we've discovered from a galaxy far, far away…

1. Inspired by the swashbuckling Flash Gordon adventures that began in the '30s, a young George Lucas initially wanted to bring that serial to the big screen, but found the rights to the character difficult to untangle. From there he began to fashion his own space epic - a project that would eventually become the Star Wars we know and love.

However, things could have been a lot different as Lucas's first draft script was »

Watch Topher Grace's 'Star Wars' Prequel Edit Trailer

28 February 2014 11:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

That '70s Show star Topher Grace wanted to learn how to edit film, so as an exercise, he took it upon himself to make a one-film cut with footage from the three Star Wars prequels, which includes Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. What resulted was an 85-minute sci-fi adventure that is lean, mean and has been quite enjoyed by those who've seen it. It was never meant to be released outside Topher Grace's circle of friends, but that might have changed after a couple years being asked repeatedly about it. We don't have a confirmed release date for Star Wars: Episode III.5, but we may finally get to see it as Topher has cut together and released a teaser trailer, which helps to remind fans why »

Blasts from the Past: Famous Kids' Auditions

27 February 2014 9:39 AM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

YouTube isn't just a great place to find cat videos and people making fools of themselves. It's also a great place to reminisce.   Here are five auditions by children who made their marks in film.   Jake Lloyd - Star Wars Episode I:  The Phantom Menace (1999)   Jake Lloyd was about 7 years old when he went out for the role of young Anakin Skywalker in the prequel to the original Star Wars trilogy. He won the multi-country audition process that spanned 3 years and involved more than 3,000 children. Although Lloyd had previously worked on other films, most notably Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Jingle All the Way (1996), the role of the boy Vader seemingly so defined him (and, unfortunately, led to a lot of harsh childhood teasing) that he...

Jingle All the Way 2 is Happening - Without Arnold

11 February 2014 7:49 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A sequel to the greatest Christmas film of all time is finally being made, without its original star.

It's Turbo Time again. But not the Turbo Time you remember. That Turbo Time is gone forever, like a a fart from Ted the Reindeer in the winter wind.  Admit it: Jingle All the Way is a guilty pleasure that is best consumed in secret every holiday, like cheap boxed wine. Even now, the classic lines from that film are running through your head with a bad Austrian accent tied to it. 

If you felt a great disturbance in the Force today, it was because millions of Jingle All the Way fans screamed out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. It came as news broke that Twentieth Century Fox and WWE Studios (yeah, there's a movie studio for a fake sport) were teaming up on a Jingle All the Way sequel. It »

Fox’s Gotham Now Has Its Penguin, Alfred And Gordon’s Fiancee

11 February 2014 12:12 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox is quickly moving forward with casting its eagerly anticipated series Gotham. This weekend, The O.C. and Southland star Ben McKenzie landed the role of James Gordon, prompting numerous jokes of a young Commissioner pushing off baddies by yelling, “Welcome to the G.C., bitch!” Now, four more (and relatively unknown) actors are joining the series’ principal cast. Most notably, Sean Pertwee (pictured above) is on board as Alfred, the trusted Wayne family butler, and Robin Lord Taylor will fill the shoes of Oswald Cobblepot, better known as The Penguin.

Sean Pertwee has quite a history, touring with the Royal Shakespeare Company back in the 1980s before turning in work as a gruff character actor in sci-fi flicks like Event Horizon, Soldier and Equilibrium. Recently, Pertwee lent his voice to video games Killzone, Fable II and their respective sequels. According to Variety, Pertwee’s Alfred Pennyworth will be “fiercely protective »

'The Lone Ranger' joins list of movies nominated for both Razzies and Oscars

16 January 2014 11:58 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

On Wednesday, The Lone Ranger received multiple Razzie nominations, including the notorious Worst Picture nod. The next day, The Lone Ranger was nominated for an Oscar, for best makeup.

This isn’t the first movie to get nods from both ends of the spectrum. Since the Razzies first began back in 1981, 47 movies have been nominated for both “awards”– some even for the same exact person or song. Here’s a look at the club The Lone Ranger just joined:
