The latest Nicolas Cage effort (hitting select theaters on 2/6) may not be on your radar, despite the inclusion of Hayden Christensen, but if this genre has any pull for you, you might want to check it out.
The directorial debut of long-time stunt coordinator and frequent second unit director, Nicholas Powell, Outcast should have the recipe for a wild ride locked up. Now, the trailer may not be showcasing the best the film has to offer (or, it might be actually), and anything that looks and feels remotely like this sort of throwback to ’80s cheese could also swing toward unwatchably awful, but sometimes these things turn out to be entertaining gems.
I’m not incredibly keen on the trailer’s lost metaphor line, “There blood will be on our swords,” which apparently aims at spinning a common turn of phrase into something deeper, and instead makes it meaningless, but you can’t have everything. »

It's baby's first road trip! New parents Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen were spotted making a pit stop while taking a cross-country trip in an Rv with their baby girl Briar Rose Christensen and Bilson's parents. The casually dressed lovebirds, who left Los Angeles yesterday, were snapped by shutterbugs making a quick stop to refuel and grab some snacks at a gas station along their journey. Hayden kept it cool in a zip-up hoodie and jeans while his leading lady stayed comfy in sweats and a long-sleeve shirt while carrying their purchases back to the Rv. The longtime couple kept their little girl's arrival secret until Nov. 6. "Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson welcome »

Not the biggest week for Star Wars this January, but what are you going to do? It’s actually funny that it feels like not-a-big-news week when we got a ton of Original Trilogy goodness since we last spoke. Star Wars: Rebels brought Lando back into the fold and Marvel brought us Star Wars #1 on Wednesday: the biggest selling comic of the decade, already.
Let’s talk about Star Wars #1 for a minute, just because I’m excited that potentially 1 million of you read the issue along with me this week. I was very pleased with the direction this is all going in.
First off, it’s great to see Luke between blowing up the Death Star and the Wampa cave. The beginning of Empire Strikes Back starts off great for a serial, but as a continuation of the character arcs that eventually lead to Death Star »

With the mind shattering news that Disney was going to be bringing Star Wars back to the big screen in 2015, geeks across the globe rejoiced. Finally, after 30 years, they were going to find out what their heroes from that galaxy far, far away, had been up to in those long, dark, Hayden Christensen infested years.
It was also announced that, in addition to the main storyline, Disney planned to produce stand alone movies. Wait, what?
Both Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards have signed on to direct the first two installments in this spin-off series. Although no official word has been reported as to the focus of these films, speculation and rumour (something any self respecting Star Wars fans prides themselves on) are rampant.
With such a rich tapestry of characters and storylines, the possibilities literally seem endless. While it would appear that there are some plots that seem to »

Watch Nicolas Cage overact in this new trailer for his upcoming adventure film Outcast. He plays "The White Ghost" in the film alongside Star Wars prequel trilogy star Hayden Christensen. The movie looks like it could be fun to watch. It's one of those movies that you'd want to watch with a group of friends. The over-the-top acting from Cage will only make the film that much more enjoyable!
The story begins when "the heir of the Imperial throne becomes the target of assassination by his despised older brother. The young prince’s only hope is the protection of his sister, and the reluctant aid of war-weary Crusader, Arken (Christensen), who must overcome his own personal demons and rally the assistance of the legendary Crusader-turned-bandit, Gallain (Cage), to return the prince to his rightful place on the throne."
