J.J. Abrams, Jurassic World 2 Cast Ambush Daisy Ridley for Star Wars 8 Spoilers

20 February 2017 8:54 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Josh Gad is currently busy filming Murder on the Orient Express. It just so happens that the movie co-stars Daisy Ridley, who had her breakout in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will be reprising her role as Rey in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Over the last month or so, Josh Gad has been posting videos to his Instagram in which he has been pestering Daisy Ridley for spoilers. Today, he has posted yet another video and truly outdone himself, having enlisted the help of quite a few very famous people to ask her questions she most definitely isn't allowed to answer.

In the Instagram video, Josh Gad starts off by apologizing to Daisy Ridley for what has been going on over the course of the last month or so and she looks like she really isn't having it. He then promises that he has »

Star Wars 8: Is Benicio Del Toro Related to This Classic Trilogy Villain?

19 February 2017 12:27 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Big movie studios generally like to keep some level of secrecy in place when it comes to highly-anticipated movies, but when it comes to Star Wars, it is on an entirely different level. Disney and Lucasfilm only recently revealed that the official title for Star Wars 8 is Star Wars: The Last Jedi and we still haven't seen a shred of footage. There are also still a lot of unknowns with a lot of the characters in the movie, like Benicio Del Toro, who has been added to the Star Wars universe for this installment. Details on his character have been very sparse, but now it looks like we may know who he is playing, and it is potentially a very big deal.

Warning: this article may contain spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. YouTuber Mike Zeroh recently uploaded a new video to his YouTube channel that deals »

Star Wars 8 Teaser Trailer Description Leaks?

18 February 2017 11:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Has some wayward soul drifting through 4Chan actually seen the teaser for Star Wars 8? Doubtful. But a description of this leaked trailer is raising some eyebrows, as certain aspects of it fall in line with previous rumors we've heard. None of what you are about to read has been confirmed by Disney nor Lucasfilm, and must be swallowed with a huge glass of MiraLAX. That said, there may be some big Spoilers ahead, so read with caution.

The first thing that will have some Star Wars fans turning up there nose at this, is that the video descriptor comes from Mike Zeroh, a popular Youtube presence who dabbles in spoilers and speculation, some of which is often very wrong. But as we know, the first Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage is going to screen at Star Wars Celebration in April, or so we've been told. Most believe this »

International titles for Star Wars: Episode VIII reveal The Last Jedi is plural

18 February 2017 5:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

From the moment the title was announced last month, there’s been intense debate as to whether the ‘Last Jedi’ in Star Wars: The Last Jedi relates to Luke Skywalker, or if it’s referring to more than one Jedi.

Well, it seems we now have our answer, as the French, Italian and Spanish language posters have revealed the international titles as Les Derniers Jedi, Gli Ultimi Jedi and Los Ultimos Jedi, with ‘Les’, ‘Gli’ and ‘Los’ being used when the following noun is plural.

So, given that it’s plural, we’re presumably we’re talking about Luke and Rey with ‘The Last Jedi’, seeing as Yoda told Luke he was the last of the ancient order in Return of the Jedi, and Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren slaughtered Luke’s new recruits prior to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Or is it possible there »

Star Wars 8 International Titles Confirm More Than One Last Jedi

17 February 2017 8:32 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since the title The Last Jedi was announced for Star Wars 8, fans have speculated and wondered if it was plural, as the word Jedi can refer to one or many. The answer finally arrives with a number of international titles for the sequel. It has been pretty much confirmed that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is indeed plural.

This means that Luke Skywalker, Rey, Ben Solo and even Snoke can all be the last of the Jedi. Which makes it a little less fun in trying to figure out who the actual last one may be. Now, it's a wide open mystery. All of these characters are confirmed to return in the movie. And The Last Jedi is still more than 10 months away, and we haven't even seen the first teaser trailer yet. That will arrive during Star Wars Celebration in April if we're to believe the hype. »

Rumour: Details on Finn’s mission in Star Wars: The Last Jedi revealed

17 February 2017 7:51 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While we know that Daisy Ridley’s Rey is going to spend much of Star Wars: The Last Jedi training and adventuring with Luke Skywalker, it’s really anyone’s guess as to what roles John Boyega’s Finn and Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron will play in Episode VIII this December, but thanks to Making Star Wars we may have some details as to the adventure Finn will find himself on for the Resistance.

Now, when it comes to Star Wars rumours, a lot of sites churn out speculation (and outright fabrication), but Making Star Wars has proven itself to be extremely reliable, so there’s a good chance this information is accurate. There’s nothing majorly spoilery here, but if you don’t want to know anything about The Last Jedi before its release, you should stop reading now.

Rian Johnson shares Star Wars: The Last Jedi Stormtrooper set photo

15 February 2017 11:20 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson (who has been extremely secretive of the project, as he should be) recently took to Tumblr to share a set photo from the film showing off a line of Stormtroopers marching in formation. Oddly, one of them has his helmet lifted up…

Johnson also teased the film’s presence at Star Wars Celebration coming up in April, saying “We’re coming to Orlando for a Star Wars Celebration panel on April 14th, and I cannot wait.  See you there!”

It is very well possible that Celebration will be the time and place we first get footage of the hotly anticipated next chapter in the beloved saga.

Exclusive: Naomie Harris on how Moonlight brought her to tears

15 February 2017 6:42 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

It’s quite hard to sit through Barry JenkinsMoonlight and not feel deeply moved the material, but that’s speaking as an audience member. For Naomie Harris – who plays the mother of Chiron, and the only character to appear in all three chapters – she admitted even she was reduced to tears, simply upon reading the screenplay.

Speaking to HeyUGuys, Harris explained, “I don’t read scripts and analyse them, are whether all the elements are right, I just read it and think, ‘Do I have an emotional response to this?’ and by the end of reading Moonlight I was in tears and so deeply moved. I thought, if I feel this way just from reading the script, it’s going to be an incredibly special movie”

The talented British actress – and Oscar nominee, for this very role – also went to speak about her initial apprehensions taking on this role, »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Finds Its New R2-D2 Actor

14 February 2017 10:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Star Wars world had a pretty rough go last year. Not only did we lose Carrie Fisher all too soon, but Kenny Baker, who brought R2-D2 to life in all seven Star Wars movies prior to Rogue One also passed away. As sad as his passing was, R2-D2 is still going to continue to be a part of a galaxy far, far away in the future, starting with Star Wars: The Last Jedi later this year. It has now been revealed that 57-year-old actor Jimmy Vee will be filling those very big shoes and portraying R2-D2 in Star Wars 8.

According to Express, Jimmy Vee, who starred in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and has also worked quite a bit in Doctor Who over the years will now be the man responsible for bringing R2-D2 to the big screen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. He actually »

Jimmy Vee succeeds Kenny Baker as R2-D2 for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

14 February 2017 8:59 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the sad passing of Kenny Baker last year, Lucasfilm has now officially announced that Jimmy Vee will be taking over the iconic role of R2-D2 for December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Vee, who also worked uncredited on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, released a statement which reads: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to have worked alongside the legendary Kenny Baker. Kenny was a fantastic actor and taught me all the ‘tricks’ on how he brought R2-D2 to life which I will continue to portray in his honor. I’m so excited to be a part of the Star Wars universe and can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve been working so hard on for the last year.

We're thrilled to announce that #OhSoSmall actor @RealJimmyVee is the new #R2D2!

As one of the early entries into Phase Three, Doctor Strange marked a defining milestone for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in that it not only propelled the timeline forward in the aftermath of Civil War, but it also opened up the more fantastical realms of the McU to the moviegoing masses. It’s only fitting, then, that the film’s home video release comes packing a raft of Marvel-related extras for Doctor Strange and beyond.

Now available on Digital HD, Strange‘s bonus content features an exciting preview of Marvel’s Phase Three, and one such film to receive the spotlight is Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther.

14 February 2017 2:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As excitement builds for our first peek at Star Wars: The Last Jedi, rumours have been doing the rounds that, much like the marketing campaign for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker will be absent from the teaser trailer. Well, according to Star Wars News Net, that is not the case after all, and Luke will reportedly be one of the featured characters in the heavily-anticipated teaser for The Last Jedi alongside Leia (Carrie Fisher), Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley).

There are rumors that Luke will not be in the first #TheLastJedi teaser. We heard the contrary. Luke, Leia, Finn and Rey will be there…

Last Jedi Trailer Will Feature These 4 Star Wars Characters?

13 February 2017 2:38 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Star Wars Celebration 2017 just a couple of months away, it is all but assured that we will be seeing our first footage from Star Wars 8 in the relatively near future. Details about the next installment of the Skywalker saga have been kept under wraps in a big way, but Disney and Lucasfilm have to give fans a teaser at some point and the question becomes, what or who will we see in the first teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi? We may now have some idea and the good news is, Luke is going to be in it.

The folks at Star Wars News Net recently took to Twitter in order to share some very important and welcomed information with their fans. It turns out there have been some rumors circulating that the first teaser for The Last Jedi wouldn't feature Luke Skywalker in it, which would serve as a major disappointment. »

Rey and Kylo Ren Connection Confirmed, Will Star Wars 8 Reveal They Are Family?

13 February 2017 10:17 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We probably won't be seeing any kind of footage from Star Wars: The Last Jedi for a couple of months, until Star Wars Celebration rolls around, but ever since the reveal of the title, there has been a lot of talk surrounding the next installment of the Skywalker saga. As much as people are excited to get some significant time with Luke Skywalker and to see Carrie Fisher's last turn as Princess Leia, they are probably equally as excited to see what happens with Rey and Kylo Ren. It looks like one of the things we may be is exploring is a "mysterious connection" between those two.

Recently, Lucasfilm updated the official Star Wars website. Specifically, they added a couple of interesting bits to both Rey and Kylo Ren's databank entries. While it was quite obvious to many Star Wars fans that the two shared some kind of »

John Williams Wins 5th Grammy for Force Awakens, Goes to Work on Last Jedi

13 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Grammy Awards aired last night, although some of the awards were handed out Sunday afternoon, before the live telecast. One of the awards that was given was to John Williams, who won Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media, beating out Ennio Morricone for The Hateful Eight, Thomas Newman for Bridge Of Spies, Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto for The Revenant, and Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein for Netflix's Stranger Things. Ennio Morricone actually beat out John Williams at the Oscars last year. We also have word that John Williams has already starting working on Star Wars: The Last Jedi score, 10 months before the movie hits theaters.

Robert Meyer Burnett revealed on Twitter that John Williams celebrated his 85th birthday on Thursday by conducting an orchestra session for the score of The Last Jedi. Composing the score is traditionally one of the very last steps in making a movie, »

John Williams has begun scoring Star Wars: The Last Jedi

12 February 2017 2:34 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

 

In terms of behind-the-scenes talent, composer John Williams remains one of the few constants in each and every Skywalker saga Star Wars film. From A New Hope to The Force Awakens, Williams has left viewers humming his themes long after they’ve left the theater for nearly four decades, and he’s not looking to stop yet.

It’s no secret that Williams is returning to score this year’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as previous updates confirmed that he was well into the writing process, but according to a tweet from producer Robert Meyer Burnett, he’s already begun conducting.

Burnett first tweeted about a Last Jedi scoring session that took place in Los Angeles yesterday and then followed it up a few hours later by claiming that Williams was, in fact, orchestrating and director Rian Johnson “wants to use the score for editing.” Check out the tweets below… »
