28 August 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lionsgate, a premier next generation global content leader, is teaming with the publisher and creators of Borderlands, and renowned producers Avi Arad and Ari Arad to adapt Gearbox Software's critically-acclaimed blockbuster video game Borderlands into a tent-pole feature film, the parties announced today.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’: Watch John Boyega Wield a Lightsaber in New Teaser

27 August 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A new teaser has debuted for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” featuring John Boyega’s character, Finn, wielding a blue lightsaber as he appears to face off with Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren in a continuation of the much-discussed scene from the first “Force Awakens” trailer, which introduced the concept of a crossguard lightsaber to a galaxy far, far away.

The video dropped on Instagram as a demonstration of the platform’s newly introduced landscape and portrait orientation options for photos and videos.

Driver’s enigmatic character has inspired plenty of speculation in the lead-up to the release of “Episode VII,” with reports revealing that his character is not a Sith in the vein of Darth Vader or Darth Maul — instead, Kylo Ren is a member of an order known as the Knights of Ren, and according to director J.J. Abrams, he built his unorthodox weapon from scratch.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller on Using Their 'Superpowers' for 'The Last Man on Earth' and Making a More Whimsical Season 2

18 August 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Before "The Last Man on Earth" premiered, very few people knew what to expect from the new Fox comedy. It appeared to be about exactly what the title suggested, only Will Forte's "last man" was a slovenly, inventive goofball. Promos only showed him blowing up cars or making friends out of tennis balls (all balls, really). The actual plot was a mystery, which ended up adding to the level of intrigue around the show. Letting an audience's imagination sell a series is a dangerous ploy, and it takes a skilled team behind the camera to be as creative as the millions tuning in for Episode 1. The pilot didn't disappoint, which speaks volumes to the vision of directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. The imaginative duo known for "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs," "21 Jump Street" and "The Lego Movie" partnered with Forte to develop the story of Phil Miller »

D23: 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Panel with Harrison Ford and Cast

16 August 2015 2:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday was another big day for Star Wars fans. Disney held their biennial D23 convention in Anaheim, and sure enough, Star Wars: The Force Awakens was part of the festivities. It was known going in that there wouldn't be a new trailer. The third trailer doesn't arrive until this fall. No new clips were shown, and there was no behind-the-scenes footage to be shared. Instead, attendees were given the official Star Wars: The Force Awakens poster painted by legendary artist Drew Struzan, which made this one trip to that galaxy far, far away that will be remembered for a lifetime!

Even though he had nothing new to show fans, director J.J. Abrams showed up to regale the audience with tales from Jakku. He arrived with the new heroes from the movie, John Boyega, who plays Finn, Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey and Oscar Isaac, who plays X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron. »

It’s packed edition of The Week in Star Wars with a poster, images and first TV spot for The Force Awakens (not to mention some toy stuff), a first look image and cast details for Rogue One, details about Han Solo’s Anthology movie, Colin Trevorrow confirmed for Episode IX, George Lucas revealing his inspiration for Jar Jar Binks and more…

…Speaking of Kylo Ren, director J.J. Abrams shared some information about him saying, “the movie explains the origins of the mask and where it’s from, but the design was meant to be a nod to the Vader mask. [Ren] is well aware of what’s come before, »

All the Star Wars news you may have missed from D23 Expo

15 August 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The force will awaken in just 125 days, but Star Wars fans didn't learn anything new about the film at Disney's D23 convention on Saturday.

Audiences at the biannual fan expo were, however, informed that Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is set to direct Star Wars: Episode IX and saw a first glimpse of the cast of Gareth Edwards' anthology film Star Wars: Rogue One.

But Star Wars: The Force Awakens, out Dec. 18, remains cloaked in secrecy. Director J.J. Abrams, stars Harrison Ford, Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, Lupita Nyong'o, and John Boyega were on hand to wave at the screaming audience in the 7,500-seat auditorium, but revealed no new footage or information about the film.

Ford, who appeared with the cast at Comic-Con in July, spoke briefly when the audience screams died down.

Expect a 'high teens, low 20s' Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars spinoff

15 August 2015 4:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As the release of The Force Awakens draws ever closer, talk has turned to one of the saga's spinoff films - namely the Han Solo origin movie.

Thanks to producer Kathleen Kennedy, we now know that the movie will feature a young Han Solo, maybe in his "high teens [or] low 20s".

Speaking to EW, Kennedy said: "There's got to be a reason for the standalone film to be.

"Obviously the thing that Star Wars has always done so well is it doesn't spend a lot of time explaining the stories that have come before.

"We don't want to do that either. We don't want to spend time going back and answering a lot of questions that, quite frankly, I don't think people want answered.

"I think the key here is that we are identifying an event or events in Han Solo's life that gives you some idea of who he »

Kathleen Kennedy Talks Approach Of 'Star Wars' Han Solo Pic, And Fate Of Josh Trank's Spinoff Movie

14 August 2015 7:59 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There's a quite a bit to talk about in the "Star Wars" universe, not only with "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" arriving in a few short months, but also the "Anthology" series spin-offs that are also coming. Next year, Gareth Edwards will deliver "Star Wars: Rogue One," and the plan had been for Josh Trank to follow in 2018 with his own anthology picture. However, the "Fantastic Four" mess saw him removed and/or exit that job (depending on who you ask) and a spin-off Han Solo movie directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller was put into its place. While speaking to EW, Kennedy revealed the approach to the Han Solo movie, and the fate of Trank's movie. “There’s got to be a reason for [the stand-alone film] to be.

Star Wars: Boba Fett Anthology movie pushed to 2020

13 August 2015 11:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Star Wars Anthology film that was to be directed by Josh Trank is still on the cards...

A few weeks ago, it was confirmed that Jump Street and The Lego Movie directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord were to direct the second planned Star Wars Anthology movie, which will deal with a younger Han Solo. That's slotted in for release in 2018, and in turn it's taken the place of the Boba Fett origins films, that Josh Trank was originally mooted to direct.

You probably know the story by now, that Trank departed the project during production of his Fantastic Four movie, and Lucasfilm hasn't as yet announced a replacement. The original plan had been for Trank to showcase a teaser reel of material during the Star Wars Celebration event earlier in the summer.

But still, the Boba Fett film is still an active project. Lucasfilm has pushed it back until 2020 at the earliest though. »

A Few Details of the Young Han Solo Movie Emerge, Plus: More Evidence for a Boba Fett Movie

13 August 2015 9:22 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Entertainment Weekly is continuing their unveiling of key Star Wars info ahead of this weekend's Disney expo, and this time they're all about the young Han Solo movie that'll be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. But perhaps even more interesting is the overlap between EW's chat with Lucasfilm honcho Kathleen Kennedy and The Verge's big piece on the technology Lucasfilm is creating concurrent with the new movies. First, the Han Solo news we know for sure, and then what the new tech Lucasfilm is developing may mean for the rumored Boba Fett movie.   No one is even close to being cast as Han Solo This part is pretty cut and dry: They haven't cast anyone and "aren't even close in that department."

13 August 2015 5:51 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While yesterday was all about Star Wars The Force Awakens, today we have Lucasfilm boss and current Star Wars producer Kathleen Kennedy talking up one of the most anticipated of the stand-alone Anthology films on their way, discussing with Entertainment Weekly some details of the Han Solo film.We know already that Lego Movie/Jump Street duo Christopher Miller and Phil Lord are directing the film, and that Lawrence Kasdan is on script duty with son Jon. So we can expect a funny, knowing, character-based film. But what about other specifics?  Like the rest of us, she and the filmmakers don’t want to tear away all the mystery from the smuggler’s past. “Those are exactly the questions we’re asking,” Kennedy says. “There’s got to be a reason for the stand-alone film to be.

How Old Is Han Solo in 'Star Wars Anthology' Prequel?

13 August 2015 4:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, Star Wars: The Force Awakens filmmakers J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy and writer Lawrence Kasdan shared new details about Harrison Ford from the set. As you may well know, LucasFilm recently announced the Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo Movie, which has Phil Lord and Chris Miller set to direct, with a May 25, 2018 release date already in place. Entertainment Weekly has even more details today about this highly-anticipated spinoff, with Kathleen Kennedy revealing the approximate age range they are looking for in a young Han Solo.

"He'll definitely be probably in the high teens, low 20s. We're not introducing you to a 10-year-old Han Solo."

The character will be approximately 15 years younger than Harrison Ford was when he played Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. When the Han Solo anthology movie was officially unveiled last month, the announcement stated that this movie will »

How Old Han Solo Will Be In The Star Wars Prequel

13 August 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As we learned a few weeks ago, Lucasfilm and Disney are currently developing a Star Wars prequel about Han Solo's early years. Set to be the second "Anthology" movie in the franchise, and directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the movie will tell us how the brash, rogue smuggler came to become who he was before the days of Luke, Leia and Obi-wan. What has remained unclear about the project, however, is exactly how old the character will be in the story. That question now has an answer: late teens, early 20s. As part of their big recent Star Wars spread, Entertainment Weekly recently had the opportunity to chat with Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy about the development of the Han Solo prequel movie, and it was during their conversation that she revealed just how old we can expect the lead character to be when the story begins.

13 August 2015 2:07 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

With Josh Trank's Star Wars movie pushed back as Lucasfilm look for a new director, 2018 will now see the release of Phil Lord and Chris Miller's untitled Star Wars Anthology movie focusing on Han Solo. Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back) is writing the screenplay with his son, and the project has been very much a mystery.

While Kathleen Kennedy wouldn't reveal any plot details, she did confirm that they're still some time away from casting an actor to play the beloved character and promised that they're setting out to explore ket moments of his past. "There’s got to be a reason for [the stand-alone film] to be," she says.

Zach Galifianakis Will Take on The Joker as 'Lego Batman' Finds Its Villain

13 August 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We already knew Will Arnett and Michael Cera would be joining forces to take down baddies as the voices of Batman and Robin, respectively, in The Lego Batman Movie, but we didn't know who the blocky yellow pair would be trying to take down -- until now. According to The Hollywood Reporter Zach Galifianakis is in talks to voice The Joker in Warner Bros.' forthcoming spinoff, which means my idea of turning the movie into an "Arrested Development" reunion and having David Cross or Tony Hale voice The Joker is all but dead, but it's okay, life goes on. I've grown a bit sour on Galifianakis in recent years, given the mostly one-note comedic range he has displayed since breaking out in 2009's The Hangover, but I liked him quite a bit in Birdman and I'm hopeful he can turn this role into something fun. The good news is »

Zach Galifianakis Is the Joker in 'Lego Batman Movie'

12 August 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one month after Michael Cera signed on to provide the voice for Batman's sidekick Robin, The Lego Batman Movie has found its main villain. Variety reports that Zach Galifianakis is in talks to voice The Joker in this animated adventure. Will Arnett reprises his role from last year's blockbuster The Lego Movie as The Dark Knight.

No specific plot details have been released yet, but producer Chris Miller said in November that this animated superhero movie will span every era of Batman filmmaking. With that being said, it's certainly possible that practically every Batman villain could be featured in this animated spinoff. It isn't known what other classic Batman characters are being eyed for The Lego Batman Movie, but there certainly are plenty to choose from.

Chris McKay, who served as the animation co-director and animation supervisor on The Lego Movie, is directing from a screenplay by Seth Grahame-Smith »
