Will Smith’s ‘Collateral Beauty’ to Open Against ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’

8 February 2016 6:06 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” has some new competition on Dec. 16 — Will Smith’s drama “Collateral Beauty.”

Warner Bros. announced Monday that it has moved “Chicken Soup for the Soul” out of the Dec. 16 slot into 2017 and replaced it with New Line’s “Collateral Beauty.” The “Star Wars” spinoff is the only other title scheduled for release that day.

David Frankel is the director of “Collateral Beauty,” which is being co-financed by Village Roadshow. Smith is starring along with Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Naomie Harris and Michael Pena.

Producers are Anthony Bregman, Bard Dorros, PalmStar CEO Kevin Frakes, Allan Loeb and Michael Sugar. Smith will portray a successful New York advertising executive who experiences a deep personal tragedy and retreats from life entirely, prompting his colleagues devise a drastic plan to help him recover.

“Rogue One” is directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz, »

Star Wars: What Do Boba Fett, Imperial Costumes and Eels Have To Do With 'Rogue One?'

5 February 2016 1:50 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This is a column about speculation, spoilers, rumors, hearsay and analyzing the Star Wars Universe. Spoilers, real or imagined, might be found within.  

Let's start by congratulating ourselves : big claps to The Force Awakens for making all that money. I’m not going to be able to say it more concisely than the official press release:

Today, in its 50th day of release, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to cross the $900 million mark at the domestic box office. It is the only film in history to reach this milestone.

In addition, on Saturday (53rd day of global release), Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to reach the $2 billion mark worldwide, becoming only the third film ever to do so and just the second to do it in original release.

We did it, Star Wars fans and creators, we revived the property once again! This time, maybe »

Colette vs. Mary Magdalene

5 February 2016 8:39 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Here's Murtada speculating very early on the 2017 Oscar race.

There’s usually a real life person in the best actress lineup. It’s not as prevalent as it is in best actor - 4 this year. But we do have Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence). Last year there were Jane Hawking (Felicity Jones) and Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon). Recently we got everyone from Philomena Lee (Judi Dench) to Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and Edith Piaf (Marion Cotillard) and most famously The Queen (Helen Mirren) and her 80s nemesis Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep). Now we have two more possible candidates for the 2017 Oscar race as two interesting biopics were announced this week with two actresses well known to the Academy. French writer Colette (to be played by Keira Knightley) and Jesus disciple Mary Magdalene (Rooney Mara). 

Colette in 1920s

Colette is the more intriguing figure, at least to this non-believer. Born in 1873 she was a journalist, »

Star Wars Rogue One: 10 Big Questions From What We Know So Far

5 February 2016 4:04 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lucasfilm

Thanks to the mostly-positive reaction to The Force Awakens, anticipation is building in earnest for the next cinematic Lucasfilm release, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It’ll reach cinemas remarkably soon, on 16th December this year, yet very little has been revealed about what the spin-off-prequel will actually look like.

It’s known that the movie will focus on the Rebel plot to steal the plans to the first Death Star, teeing up the events of George Lucas’ original 1977 Star Wars movie (the one that is now dubbed A New Hope). Beyond that, nobody knows much about what Gareth Edwards, Felicity Jones and their cohorts are plotting. It’s a mysterious movie, by all accounts.

So, while everyone patiently waits for a Rogue One trailer (or even just a few more images), here are the ten biggest questions that need answering about the movie…

 

10. Are They Rebels Or Bounty Hunters? »

Here's How 'Rogue One' Pays Tribute to 'Star Wars: A New Hope'

2 February 2016 7:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The heroes in Star Wars love to disguise themselves as villains, and it's a trope that goes all the way back to the 1977 original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. In that movie, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker wear Stormtrooper armor to save Princess Leia from her holding cell on the Death Star. And throughout the franchise, in both the movies and the animated TV series, we've seen other characters follow suit. Now, in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a couple of the heroes will once again be hiding out in Imperial garb to get their job done. And it will be a direct nod to A New Hope. Only this time, there is a little twist.

According to Making Star Wars, there will be a scene in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story where Felicity Jones and Diego Luna's Rebel characters have to go undercover and don disguises. »

The Week in Star Wars – Ewan McGregor talks The Force Awakens, Boba Fett in Rogue One, more movies after Episode IX, Kevin Smith’s role in The Force Awakens revealed and more

31 January 2016 9:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Your weekend edition of The Week in Star Wars has a look at the costumes for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Harrison Ford presenting Star Wars Land, more movies after Episode IX and writer-director Kevin Smith’s role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is finally revealed…

We’re kicking things off this week by looking – get this – past Star Wars: Episode IX. When Disney first announced they’d purchased the rights to make more Star Wars movies, they initially announced a new trilogy to take us up to 2019, which was then followed up announcements for spin-off (or Anthology) movies in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (with rumours of a Boba Fett one in there too). It was assumed by the fanbase that this new trilogy would then mark the end of Star Wars. No so, says Disney’s Bob Iger. »

Lego presentation hints at Boba Fett appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

31 January 2016 3:23 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We already know that Darth Vader is set to feature in this year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now it seems that Lego may have revealed another fan favourite Original Trilogy character will appear in the Anthology movie.

During a presentation at Nuremberg Toy Fair – where several Rogue One costumes are also on display – The Lego Group unveiled some of its Star Wars plans for 2016, with Rogue One accompanied by an image of what appears to be Slave I, which is of course the ship of the fearsome bounty hunter Boba Fett.

Now, this is of course far from confirmation that Boba Fett will feature in the movie, but it’s been said there will be a big focus on bounty hunters, so it’s certainly within the realm of possibility. »

Proof That Boba Fett Is in 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'?

30 January 2016 8:29 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Aside from the main plot, we know precious little about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The first spinoff revolves around a group of Rebel soldiers who set out to steal plans for the Death Star. Aside from that, no official characters have been revealed. We know the cast, but not whom they are playing. Then there are the rumors that a number of iconic Star Wars characters will appear at some point in the movie. Darth Vader is said to have a sizable role. And a young Han Solo is expected to make a cameo. But now, we have what could be proof that another original trilogy character may be showing up in some capacity.

Yes, it sounds like Boba Fett is going to be showing up at some point in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, even though the character is heavily rumored to be getting his own »

Forest Whitaker's 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Character Revealed?

30 January 2016 10:01 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While we've heard some character names bandied about for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we have no confirmation as to whom anyone of the ensemble cast is playing. Today, we have some inside intel on this first Star Wars spinoff, which reportedly gives us a full character profile on the role being played by Forest Whitaker. And he sounds like a very interesting guy.

Suffice it to say, the rest of this story does contain some Spoilers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. So read on with caution. At first glance, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story doesn't really fit in with anything else Forest Whitaker has done in his career. He's a more serious actor who doesn't usually gravitate to franchise fare. But perhaps he's arrived here due to the fact that the characters in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story are pretty solid, and all a »

Rumoured details on Forest Whitaker’s character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

30 January 2016 8:46 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month, the folks at Making Star Wars posted some rumours about Mads Mikkelsen’s role in the upcoming Anthology movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now the site is back with some minor details about Forest Whitaker’s character.

According to the report, Whitaker’s character is said to be a good guy, who could also be a bounty hunter. A battle-hardened veteran, he has lost a leg and has a robot prosthetic, as well as needing a cane to walk. He also wears a cape, while “his costume is a hodgepodge of different things (think of someone you might see at Maz’s castle).”

'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Costumes Arrive at Nuremberg Toy Fair

28 January 2016 8:30 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just before we rang in the new year, production on the first Star Wars spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story wrapped. Now the long wait begins for the first footage. A rumor surfaced earlier this month that the first official trailer will debut in theaters with Captain America: Civil War, but even if that's true, we still have a few months before we get our first look at this anticipated adventure. Thankfully, Entertainment Weekly spotted a number of photos featuring the official costumes from this spinoff, which have surfaced from the Nuremberg Toy Fair.

Unfortunately, these photos don't reveal much about the actual story itself. Rogue One is set between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, centering on a group of Rebels who hatch a mission to steal the original Death Star plans. There have been rumors »

With spoilers, we take a look at the latest rumours surrounding the villains in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story...

Nb: The following contains potential spoilers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Scroll below our Jedi Squirrel at your peril.

From rank-and-file Stormtroopers to the imposing Darth Vader himself, villains have long been the engine that drives the Star Wars universe. Sure, Luke Han and now Finn and Rey might be the ones we root for, but it's the antagonists that give them something to fight against and, in many cases, provide the franchise with its most powerful imagery - it's no coincidence that the features of Darth Maul and Kylo Ren have been used to promote The Phantom Menace and The Force Awakens respectively.

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens still in theaters, we just have 11 more months or so until the next Star Wars movie, the first spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This adventure is set between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, following a group of Rebels who embark on a mission to steal plans for the original Death Star. As of now, that is practically all we know about the story so far, but last week, a rumor surfaced that the iconic Darth Vader will be present in this adventure, but now we have another report from JoBlo that sheds new light on his role. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Rogue One will have “more realistic” alien characters than Star Wars: The Force Awakens

21 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Disney pushing a return to more practical-based effects for its Star Wars universe compared to the CG-heavy approach of the prequels, creature designer Neal Scanlan has been talking to MTV about the alien characters set to inhabit Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, stating that director Gareth Edwards has been pushing for more realistic and emotive creatures than we saw in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“In the world of Force Awakens, there was a real mixture of all different kinds, very much like the original Cantina sequence [in A New Hope],” said Scanlan. “Working with Gareth now on Rogue One, he sees these aliens as being much more part of the human [world]. They co-habitate, they work together and so it’s pushed us very much to create characters that are more realistic. They move more realistically, they’re able to emote more than maybe the characters that we did for .

Star Wars: 13 Biggest Rumours You Need To Know (Jan 21st)

21 January 2016 12:43 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lucasfilm

There are stories about what will happen. They may be true. They may be complete rubbish; a million voices crying out utter bulls*it.

Before Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there were A Lot of rumours. Some of them hit like Luke Skywalker firing at the Death Star (see: Han Solo dying); some were close to the mark (Kylo Ren and Rey being siblings); and others had all the accuracy of a Stormtrooper who’s just banged his head (the vast majority of Luke theories).

However, like the Empire and planet destroying weapons, the internet is definitely trying again. The Force Awakens may have been the most hyped film of all time, but it’s really just the beginning. It has reignited the saga, and now there’s going to be a new Star Wars movie every year until the Earth dies (or at least 2019).

There’s the standalone »

Rumour: Christopher McQuarrie brought in to “save” Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

18 January 2016 3:29 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in October it was rumoured by that Disney and Lucasfilm had enlisted Oscar-winner Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) to polish the script for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The original report claimed that McQuarrie spent a couple of weeks working on the original script by Gary Whitta (After Earth) and Chris Weitz (Cinderella). However, Birth.Movies.Death is now claiming that his involvement was actually much more than that, and that he was brought in early in the shoot to “save” the project as Lucasfilm felt that the script still wasn’t in the right place.
