9 Reasons to Be Excited for Star Wars: Rogue One

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney and Lucasfilm are getting ready to go full-steam ahead on getting the hype train moving for their next Star Wars movie. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is due out in December, and because it is a Star Wars movie, there will be months of press, details slowly leaking out and mounting anticipation for the follow up to The Force Awakens. But Rogue One is going to be a very different type of Star Wars movie, and Disney has their work cut out for them to help the mainstream audience understand that.

The studio recently got a lot of excitement built up thanks to a massive amount of coverage about the movie from Entertainment Weekly, which got a lot of people on board. Prior to all of the new details that were revealed about Rogue One in that EW spread, we didn't know all that much about the movie. »

It’s official: Han Solo won’t be in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It has been rumoured for some time (though it never seemed likely) that Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo could feature in the first Star Wars spin off movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Well, we can now finally put that rumour to rest.

“I’m not sure I’m allowed to do this but I think I should. I can put to bed, Han Solo is not in the movie,” director Gareth Edwards told Extra TV.

Well, that’s that then. Unless of course he’s lying…

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is the first film in the new standalone movies from Lucasfilm. It tells the story of how a group of unlikely heroes unite to undertake a daring and seemingly impossible mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.

San Sebastian: ‘Smoke & Mirrors,’ ’May God Save Us,’ ‘La Reconquista’ Make Competition Cut

14 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Two of Spain’s most anticipated titles of the year – Alberto Rodriguez’s true-life Spanish espionage expose “Smoke & Mirrors” and Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s serial-killer procedural “May God Save Us” – will world premiere in main competition at the 64th San Sebastian Festival.

Also competing at the highest-profile film event in the Spanish-speaking world: Romantic dramedy “La Reconquista,” a first big fest bow for Jonas Trueba, an engaging, audience-friendly arthouse auteur..

Starring Liam Neeson, Sigourney Weaver and Felicity Jones, Spaniard Juan Antonio Bayona’s “A Monster Calls” will celebrate its European premiere at San Sebastian, screening out of competition, as announced last week.

Presented Thursday in Madrid, the 11 Spanish features selected for this year’s San Sebastian invite several off-the-cuff conclusions. First, eight are world premieres: The large spread of fresh films from Spain remains one of San Sebastian’s biggest lures.

Again, Spanish producers used to think thrice before premiering »

Newswire: Sorry everyone, but there won’t be any Han Solo or Hayden Christensen in Rogue One

27 July 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The Star Wars Celebration that took place in London earlier this month gave fans a more in-depth introduction to Alden Ehrenreich, who was recently crowned the new/young Han Solo. Unfortunately, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller didn’t actually reveal any details about the Star Wars spin-off, but there was a lot of talk of various Star Wars cast and crew members making appearances in the new films. Episode VIII director Rian Johnson has a cameo in Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One, with Lord and Miller set to appear in some capacity in Johnson’s Star Wars movie.

Other guest appearance rumors have cropped up, naturally, including the possibility of a young Han Solo zipping past Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones). But according to Star Wars Underworld, Rogue One director Gareth Edwards actually shot down the idea at the Star Wars Celebration, telling reporters that “I’m not sure if I »

Toronto Film Festival 2016: What Films Will Contend For Oscar Gold After Tiff Premieres

26 July 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Toronto Film Festival, which runs September 8-18, announced its lineup today with a ton of potential Oscar contenders — but it’s not the only showcase that some of them will have in the fall. Tiff has been sensitive of late about Labor Day weekend rival Telluride’s annual panoply of unannounced Oscar contenders. However, the two film events work in concert, as the earlier well-curated festival — attended by a small coterie of influencers — builds buzz for the later, sprawling Tiff, with its larger mass of junket media, including the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the Golden Globes.

Gareth Edwards discusses Rogue One: A Star Wars Story alien creatures Pao and Bistan

21 July 2016 3:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the Star Wars Celebration sizzle reel for Rogue One, we got our first glimpse of two alien creatures from December’s Anthology movie, affectionately dubbed by fans as “Bigmouth” and “Space Monkey”, and now director Gareth Edwards has offered up some details on the two characters, who are actually called Pao and Bistan.

“There was this great design of this creature that’s mouth would open really wide, and he looked like he was really good at giving orders and shouting at people during a battle,” said Edwards with regards to “Bigmouth”, a.k.a. Pao. “I was like, ‘We’ve got to give him that moment in the film,’ and so [Pao] was born out of that.”

As for Bistan, he’s a gunner on a new gunship/troop transport vehicle, the U-Wing: “It’s not necessarily a character that we get to know, but I think he has a very memorable, »

New Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer Leaks From Star Wars Celebration

19 July 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Much to the surprise of no one, it appears that the new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the very same one that was showcased behind-closed-doors at Star Wars Celebration Europe, has leaked online.

Remember, it’s a bootleg, so expect a fairly shaky experience. Nevertheless, it certainly chimes with last week’s trailer description, culminating in the reveal of Darth Vader. Well, we say reveal; James Earl Jones’ scenery-chewing big bad is glimpsed in a reflection of what we assume to be the shiny floor of the Death Star itself. But make no mistake, that iconic, rasping breathing apparatus can be heard loud and clear.

In branching off from Disney and Lucasfilm’s core saga, director Gareth Edwards has been tasked with lending Rogue One: A Star Wars Story an identity of its own, effectively diving deep into the period betwixt Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

Part and parcel of that creative approach will be to put some distance between Edwards’ Anthology movie and the Star Wars movies of old – The Force Awakens included – and could result in Rogue One cutting out a key element of this most prized universe: the opening crawl.

Appearing at last weekend’s Star Wars Celebration Europe, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy was quizzed about the crawl, which looks set to be left on the editing room floor come December: “You know, we’re in the midst of talking about it, »
