Star Wars: The Phasma Menace

19 December 2014 3:07 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

House-Keeping! Barring significant Star Wars news (and I’m not sure what the bar for “significant” is, but I’ll know it if I see it) this is gonna be the last S7AR Wars column of 2014. At a scant 30 entries old, we’ve crossed the barrier where the newest Star Wars movie is now Less than a year away.

I’m going to take the time to actually attempt to finish Tarkin. James Luceno is great with details, but it doesn’t make for fast reading. Darth Plagueis also improved upon The Phantom Menace, so it had a connection to the canon made it interesting to read. I haven’t connected to Tarkin climbing the Imperial ranks yet. I hear there’s some Plagueis shout-outs in the book, which could just be because it’s the same author as the abandoned EU novel, Or it could be setting us »

Bag O' Links: Pitt, Cruella, Annie, Viola, Lisi, Potter, Etc...

19 December 2014 9:25 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We haven't done a link roundup in so long this one is super-duper-quadrupled size. Please to enjoy these articles or catch up with this news...

Farewell

Nyt, BBC, Variety remembers the great Italian actress Virna Lisi who has died at 78 years of age. Best known stateside for the Jack Lemmon comedy How To Murder Your Wife (1965), and maybe that iconic Esquire cover by George Lois (left) which has been homaged ever since, this baby cinephile right here writing to you first fell for her in the French film Queen Margot (1994). She was brilliant as the most ruthless of royals. She won the Cannes prize for Best Actress for her supporting role which probably didn't make Margot herself Isabelle Adjani too happy but they were at odds in the film, too. 

Randomness

Guardian doesn't like the new Annie but what makes that little orphan so durable in pop culture?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Director J.J. Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, Chewbacca, and More Say “Thank You” for Donations

19 December 2014 6:43 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back in May when Star Wars: The Force Awakens started filming, director J.J. Abrams announced the "Force for Change" campaign, which invited fans to donate to support Unicef in exchange for prizes and even a chance to have a cameo in the movie.  The winner of the cameo was announced in August, but even if you didn't win, you still helped raised over $5 million dollars to support Unicef programs.  And for that, Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy, crew members, R2-D2, and Chewbacca say "Thank you."  I suppose C-3P0 was off somewhere being an ungrateful jerk, whining about something or other.  Fucking Threepio. Hit the jump to check out the Star Wars: The Force Awakens thank you video.  The film opens December 18, 2015, and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Harrison Ford, »

Thank you from the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

19 December 2014 6:14 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams gave fans their very first look the new film with a video from the set. Though it put many of us ease with its use of real sets and props, it was actually designed to promote the charity initiative “Force for Change” and raise money for the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef). A second video was released later, which gave us all a fantastic look at the new X-Wing (with pilot!). Now, a third video has arrived and it features Abrams offering his thanks alongside the gratitude of the entire Episode VII cast and crew. You might notice one or two well known characters…

Unicef’s current network of 14 Innovation Labs help create sustainable solutions to critical issues facing children around the world in the areas of nutrition, water, health, and education. The funds raised through “Star Wars »

18 December 2014 1:08 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Not much is known about the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Last month we got to see the first trailer which got fans very excited, but the cast of the film are keeping their mouths shut on any details about the film.

Whilst on the red carpet for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, actor Andy Serkis spoke to Entertainment Weekly, revealing a few minor details about who he is playing, but still not giving a great deal away.

We heard Andy Serkis’ voice in the trailer and he was asked if it was altered in anyway to cover it up, he said: “That is the character, there’s no digital manipulation. That’s just me.”

He was then asked about the rumour of having multiple roles in the film to which he responded: “Not true at all, I can say I only play one character. »

Andy Serkis Addresses Recent Rumors About His 'Star Wars' Character(s)

18 December 2014 7:44 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A few weeks back, a rumor began making its way around these here interwebs that Andy Serkis would be playing not one but two roles in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The rumor came from a report by Jedi News, and it claimed that he'd be both a mo-cap character and a flesh-and-blood person in the film. Entertainment Weekly did some digging, while chatting with the actor, and got him to address the rumors.

According to Serkis, it's all hogwash. He says the rumor that he's playing multiple characters is "not true at all." He then asserts, "I can say I only play one character."

Speaking of his character, he says that not only was his voice in the trailer not digitally modified, but that what's heard are actual lines spoken in the film. He didn't record narration. That's no "trailer voice over." What we heard in that teaser »

Andy Serkis Is Only Playing One Character In Star Wars: The Force Awakens

17 December 2014 1:40 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the biggest mysteries to spin-off from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer revolved around the voiceover. Namely, who the heck is it? Once the man behind that sinister tone was identified as none other than Mr. Mo-Cap, Andy Serkis, the rumour mill continued to churn out further speculation.

First up, we heard from Jedi News that the talented thesp would be tackling not one, but two major roles in the anticipated sci-fi spectacle. As exciting a prospect as that was – because Serkis is a phenomenal performer in every aspect – it seems it could have been a load of tripe.

In an interview with EW (via Collider), the actor addressed the rumours that he’d be turning in a performance-capture bit along with a live-action role:

“No that’s not true at all. I can say I only play one character.”

So, now that we know »
