Star Wars: Mark Hamill on Being Luke Skywalker, ‘Episode VIII’

15 July 2016 5:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, kicked off proceedings at Star Wars Celebration Europe at London’s ExCel Centre on Friday with an admission.

“People say, “Give us a detail about ‘Episode VIII,’ ” he told the packed crowd. “I know you’ll love the irony that I am contractually forbidden to do so.”

When we last saw Luke Skywalker at the end of “The Force Awakens,” he was hiding out in a Jedi Temple on the aquatic planet Ahch-To. Rey (Daisy Ridley) tracks him down and hands him his lightsaber. Then, the movie ends — Hamill doesn’t utter a single word of dialogue in the film. Director J.J. Abrams called the moment “this great long drum roll up to seeing this guy,” but Hamill revealed he was initially skeptical.

“I was nervous,” he continued. “Say I turned and people groaned? But I want to do all movies like that — 30 seconds work and second billing. »

New "Flash Gordon"- Sex and Violence On 'Mongo'

13 July 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, a popular 'genre' director has agreed to develop a sex/violence update of "Flash Gordon", based on the 1930's newspaper comics hero by Alex Raymond, that inspired the creation of "Star Wars" by George Lucas.

Director Matthew Vaughn ("Kingsman: The Secret Service") has been approached by Fox to kick-off the new film series.

According to actor Sam Jones, who played 'Flash Gordon' in a 1980 feature, "Matthew Reilly, VP of production at Fox Studios, acquired the screenplay rights to 'Flash Gordon' last year, and he hired John Davis and his staff to write the script. They’re looking to bring out a sequel...

"I met with Matt and we are in talks about that. I’m very excited. A lot of people over the years, including Stephen Sommers and Neil H Moritz, have acquired the screenplay rights, but for whatever reason they did not »

Colin Firth pictured on the ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ set

12 July 2016 1:51 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We all thought that Colin Firth met his maker in the very first Kingsman movie, but it looks like we presumed wrong. The British Oscar-winner has just been snapped on the set of the sequel, which is now shooting under the watchful eye of Matthew Vaughn.

We previous saw a teaser poster featuring the words “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” prompting speculation that a return for Firth was on the cards.

Now we may have the proof from co-star Pedro Pascale’s Instagram – or could it be a twin brother? Who knows? Take a look.

Colin Firth Returns In "Kingsman 2" Set Pics

12 July 2016 12:43 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite his apparent death in the first film, the casting of Colin Firth in the upcoming sequel "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" made it quite clear that his Harry Hart character would be back in the Matthew Vaughn-helmed follow-up to the spy action-comedy.

20th Century Fox obviously have little issue with it as a potential spoiler. Previously they released a teaser poster confirming Firth's return and now some set photos have gone up on social media from fellow cast members Taron Egerton and Pedro Pascal. The new photos show off a returning Firth in the film which is has been shooting ahead of a 2017 release. Halle Berry, Mark Strong, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum and Elton John also star.

Colin Firth Returns as Harry Hart in New Kingsman 2 Set Photo

11 July 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after 20th Century Fox released their surprise blockbuster Kingsman: The Secret Service, talk of a sequel started to surface. Director Matthew Vaughn teased last spring that he had some ideas for the sequel, even hinting that Colin Firth's character Harry Hart may return in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, despite being seemingly killed off at the end of the first movie. Back in April, a new poster teased the return of Harry Hart, but we haven't gotten a glimpse at the actor since production began. Thankfully, Pedro Pascal has offered our first look at Colin Firth from the set.

Over the weekend, Pedro Pascal shared a photo on Instagram, which features the actor hiding behind Colin Firth, with the caption "Hide behind Harry." Unfortunately, the photo doesn't come with any details about how this Kingsman agent was brought back to life, but the poster from this spring featured the »

Colin Firth Will Indeed Return For Kingsman: The Golden Circle

11 July 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated and, sure enough, Colin Firth will be back as Harry Hart for Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Word of Firth’s return first surfaced a few months back, when Taron Egerton posted a teasing photo that included Hart’s signature spectacles. Flying in the face of expectation – the way in which The Secret Service ended led fans to believe that Hart was firmly en route to meeting his maker – director Matthew Vaughn has opted to welcome back the charismatic Firth for another whirl, and an Instagram post from Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal all but confirms Hart’s role in the action sequel.

Colin Firth Spotted On The Set Of Kingsman: The Golden Circle Looking Alive & Well

11 July 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We learned back in April that Colin Firth would indeed be returning for Matthew Vaughn's highly anticipated Kingsman sequel - Kingsman: The Golden Circle - but, considering his character Harry Hart met an untimely demise in the first installment, it's been a bit of a conundrum in recent months as to how exactly he would make his return from the land of the (presumed) dead. Even today, the jury's still out on the circumstances behind his eagerly awaited resurrection, but we do have our first official look at Firth on set in costume sporting Harry's trademark eyeglasses. The photo was posted on Instagram by one of his new co-stars, Pedro Pascal (Game Of Thrones), who is playing a character by the name of Jack Daniels, over the weekend.

Colin Firth back from the dead for Kingsman 2

11 July 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A memorable death in the first instalment of Matthew Vaughn’s spy caper does not appear to have prevented the actor returning for a sequel

Last year’s Kingsman: The Secret Service was notable for many things. The enormous box office (£319m worldwide). The divided critical opinion. The 38 complaints set to the BBFC, mostly taking issue with a protracted scene in which Colin Firth’s debonair spy-maker massacres scores of people in a church. And his character’s death soon after – apparently for good, presumed a bit of a blow for the sequel prospects.

But director Matthew Vaughn has subsequently hinted he might try to revive the character, and a promotional poster released in April for the new film featured his glasses, with the line “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated”. Now, the rumours appear to have been confirmed: Firth has been pictured on the set, in what »

First Photos of Sofia Boutella In Full Costume From 'The Mummy' Set

11 July 2016 6:14 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Just Jared posted over thirty-five photos from the set of director Alex Kurtzman's The Mummy starring Tom Cruise. In the photos, we see the first appearance of actress Sofia Boutella as the titular villain in full costume and makeup. Apparently she is controlling a group of people in the scene. 

Boutella had a break-out role in director Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Circle and will next be seen in director Justin Lin's Star Trek Beyond alongside Chris Pine and Idris Elba.

The Mummy is planned as the first film in a series of interconnected monster films as Universal hopes to build a cinematic universe out of its vault of classic creature features. 

Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, »

'Kingsman', 'Spectre' top 2015 BBFC complaints

1 July 2016 3:44 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Family animation Minions also received double digit complaints from members of the public.

Kingsman: The Secret Service and latest James Bond outing Spectre topped the 2015 list of film complaints received by ratings body the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), according to the organisation’s annual report.

Matthew Vaughn’s comic book adaptation Kingsman received 38 complaints from members of the public, with the primary reason being the level of violence in the 15-rated film, with one scene set in a church (featuring Colin Firth attacking a group of churchgoers) causing particular offence.

The BBFC comments that it saw an incomplete version of the film which would have received an 18 classification, and provided advice on how to reduce its rating by shortening moments of strong violence and not dwelling on pain or injury.

The organisation notes that one particular crude sex reference drew multiple complaints, but was left in the film due to comic context.

Editorial: Fox meet Marvel

30 June 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Fox’s treatment of Marvel properties is unacceptable.  There, I’ve established how I feel. Now, let’s run down why it’s so exciting that one day we may see them work with Marvel in a capacity similar to Sony. To put it bluntly, it feels like Fox is just in it for the money. I’m aware of how capitalism works, but the difference between someone who cares about what they are doing and someone rifling through your pockets is glaringly obvious. Many of you will disagree, but let’s take a peek back in time. We’ll begin with X-Men.

In 2000, a time before Sam Raimi’s first Spider-Man film, X-Men was a triumph.  Not many people cared about the fact that Hugh Jackman looked nothing like the comic book version of Wolverine. It was just cool to see a man with claws tearing through stuff. But, »

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Adds Vinnie Jones

29 June 2016 9:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite being quite a ways into production, Kingsman: The Golden Circle still continues to add members to its cast, with the latest coming in the form of the always reliable Vinnie Jones. The actor has worked with director Matthew Vaughn before, back on Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, so it’ll be nice to see them back together again, as those two films were both excellent.

No word on how big of a role he’ll have here (though coming on board this late, we assume it won’t be huge), but we can definitely see him as one of the villains. Perhaps as a henchman of some sorts for Julianne Moore’s big bad? Time will tell.

Jones joins an already stacked cast that includes the aforementioned Moore alongside Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, Elton John and many, many more. When »

Jones and Vaughn last collaborated on Snatch, and, before that, Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, both of which Vaughn produced. 

Jones was also in X-men: The Last Stand, which was originally going to be directed by Vaughn, until Vaughn opted out because he didn't think he had enough time to make a proper X-Men film. Brett Ratner stepped in and proved that Vaughn was right, and there was not enough time to make a decent X-Men film.

Kingsman 2 Reunites Vinnie Jones and Director Matthew Vaughn

29 June 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past few months, the 20th Century Fox sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle has been releasing a number of unique posters which have confirmed new cast members such as Channing Tatum, Elton John and Jeff Bridges. These posters have even revealed the return of Colin Firth, though his character Harry Hart was presumably killed in last year's blockbuster Kingsman: The Secret Service. Today we have word that Vinnie Jones has joined the cast, reuniting him with director Matthew Vaughn.

Vinnie Jones teased on Twitter earlier this week that he was filming scenes for Kingsman 2, although it seems a few of his followers didn't believe him. The actor went on to prove that he was in fact on the Kingsman: The Golden Circle set by posting a few videos and new photos of the actor alongside director Matthew Vaughn and co-star Julianne Moore. Unfortunately, the actor wouldn't shed any »
