We’re getting quite excited now. A new Star Wars movie will arrive in cinemas in just over two months time. Star Wars: The Force Awakens will kick off a new trilogy in the saga, and we’re also promised three spin-off films, the first of which will arrive in just over a year’s time with Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars story.
Speaking with Costco Connection, Kennedy, who is president of Lucasfilm, had this to say.
“The saga films focus on the Skywalker family,” she said. “The stories follow a linear narrative that connects to the previous six films. ‘The Force Awakens’ follows ‘Return of the Jedi’ and continues that generational story. The Anthology films offer opportunities to explore fresh characters, »

Just three months after signing on to direct 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated superhero spinoff Gambit, filmmaker Rupert Wyatt backed out of the project two weeks ago. The departure was attributed to a shift in the Gambit production schedule, which was supposed to begin in November, but was then changed to March 2016, which reportedly conflicted with an unspecified project. Today, The Hollywood Reporter claims that the split happened because 20th Century Fox started questioning whether or not the filmmaker was truly committed to the project.
Ironically, just weeks before Rupert Wyatt signed on this past June, a report surfaced that actor/producer Channing Tatum was having trouble finding a director for Gambit. He reportedly approached his Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller, along with Darren Aronofsky (Noah), Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption) and J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year). All of those filmmakers passed on the project. But even after Rupert Wyatt signed on, »
"Jurassic World" arrives on home video in a few short weeks, enabling nitpicking superfans to continue to complain about the mega-smash hit movie that, in my opinion, was one of the best blockbusters of the year (so far), coming in second behind "Mad Max: Fury Road." Colin Trevorrow updated the "Jurassic Park" franchise for a new era, but also kept the same spirit of the series, while putting his own mark on the material. It's not an easy feat, especially for someone leaping from indie moviemaking to a major tentpole. At any rate, I'm digressing a bit, because what we're here to talk about are a batch of deleted scenes that have landed online.

Colin Trevorrow has some big films on his “to-do” list. The Jurassic World director has been tapped to direct the next Jurassic installment, as well as conclude the new Star Wars trilogy with Episode IX. Before he starts on these colossal projects, Trevorrow has a pet project he’s finally getting started.
The Book of Henry is a film that the director has wanted to make for some time now. The plot details of the film are being kept a secret. What we know is that the film will be based on an original script by novelist Gregg Hurwitz. He is a New York Times Bestselling author of fifteen novels as well as an acclaimed comic book writer (Wolverine, Punisher, Batman and others). His latest novel, Orphan X, is due in January and the film rights have already been purchased by Warner Bros.

For every success story like Colin Trevorrow and his billion dollar breaking transition from "Safety Not Guaranteed" to "Jurassic World," there are countless others who couldn't quite make the indie leap. Sometimes it's the scale of the project that's overwhelming or the machinations of studio politics that does them in, but it's not an easy journey to make. However, Matt Sobel is going to give it a try.

The project has some heavy talent behind it with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg producing, and Jack Thorne ("How I Live Now," "This Is England," "Skins") penning. »

In this week’s edition of The Week in Star Wars, we look at a rather dubious rumour about Hayden Christensen returning to the Star Wars Universe, John Boyega, Domhnall Gleeson and Gwendoline Christie talk The Force Awakens and more…
Kicking things off as we usually do on The Week in Star Wars by looking at the latest from The Force Awakens. And this week John Boyega sat down to talk about his role as Finn and said that his story mirrors that of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo: “When I read the script I cried, and I’m not really a big crier. I’m more like a frog-in-the-throat kind of guy, who’ll try to hold it in and make sure I don’t let it all out. Finn is dope. His story is so epic. It’s a story that’s never been seen before, but it »

Colin Trevorrow is still at least a couple of years away from starting work on Star Wars Episode IX, and so in the meantime, he’s working on The Book of Henry for Focus Features. The cast of the movie has already attracted Naomi Watts (The Divergent Series), Jaeden Lieberher (St. Vincent), and Jacob Tremblay (Room), and now three more very impressive casting additions have been made in the form of Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy), Sarah Silverman (A Million Ways to Die in the West), and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad).
Following the success of Jurassic World (now the third highest grossing movie of all-time), it perhaps shouldn’t come as any sort of surprise that Trevorrow has attracted such a great cast for his next project. The plot of the movie is being kept under wraps for now, but the screenplay was written by best-selling novelist Gregg Hurwitz, »

Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy), Sarah Silverman (I Smile Back) and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) have joined the cast of the film, alongside the previously announced Naomi Watts (Birdman), Jaeden Lieberher (St. Vincent) and Jacob Tremblay (Room).
The plot of the film, written by best-selling novelist Gregg Hurwitz as an original screenplay, is being kept underwraps at the moment, but the story is said to be “a dark family dramedy centering on a mother and her genius son.”
Director Trevorrow is one of the hottest Hollywood directors working right now, aided by the monumental success of Jurassic World, which has so far grossed over $1.65 billion at the worldwide box-office. It is also just $8.6 million away from topping James Cameron’s Titanic »

Stealing Time involves... Read More »

With Naomi Watts, Jaeden Lieberher and Jacob Tremblay already booked in to star, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is adding to the cast of his next film, The Book Of Henry. Sarah Silverman, Lee Pace and Dean Norris are all now aboard. Unlike his dino-centric franchise hit, Trevorrow is keeping things small and decidedly quiet with Henry, which was written by novelist Gregg Hurwitz. Nothing is known about the plot of the film, which isn’t adapted from anything and has a shoot starting soon in New York. “Book Of Henry is a remarkable piece of screenwriting that has stuck with me for years,” Trevorrow has said of the screenplay. “I feel very fortunate to be able to tell this story. It is a true original.”Silverman has been working steadily on film recently, including the upcoming I Smile Back and the Lonely Island comedy music Connor4Real. Pace, last »

Jurassic World became 2015’s biggest movie when it grossed over $1.6 billion at the worldwide box office earlier this year, and while there are those who believe Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to top that, the movie becoming the third highest grossing release of all-time definitely ensures the franchise is back and here
