Benicio Del Toro Confirms Star Wars: Episode VIII Villain Role

13 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  Actor Benicio Del Toro just confirmed to Spanish outlet  www.rac1.org that he will indeed play the villain in Star Wars: Episode VIII and that filming starts in March.  The news comes after Del Toro previously told reporters last month that "he thinks" he'll take the role. The only other actor mentioned for the role was Joaquin Phoenix.  However, Phoenix recently gave an interview where he stated that the reason he turns down blockbuster roles is because 75% of the script is, "a description of some asteroid going through space."  Perhaps Joaquin made this comment in reference to the Star Wars script he just read? Rian Johnson is writing and directing the sequel to J.J. Abrams' The Force Awakens.  Joining Del Toro will be Donnie Yen, and Oscar Isaac - who will be reprising his role as Poe Dameron.  Casting is underway for a new female lead and the »

New Star Wars: The Force Awakens Banner Spotlights The First Order

20 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Our three new heroes are going to have their work cut out for them in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, because the saga is also introducing a trio of formidable looking antagonists in the form of Kylo Ren, General Hux, and Captain Phasma - who you'll notice is sporting a bow-caster type weapon similar to the one Chewbacca uses. This new banner is likely just the first indication of a new wave of promotion set to kick on as we head towards "Force Friday", so keep your eyes peeled. Starring original cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and franchise newcomers, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o and Max von Sydow, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to be released on December 18th, 2015. »

Cate Blanchett is playing Lucille Ball. Here's who should play her costars.

2 September 2015 2:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I'm almost done gawking at the fact that Cate Blanchett will star in a Lucille Ball biopic written by Aaron Sorkin. It's shocking. It's more like a Mad Lib to me than a news story, still.   The Sorkin element is actually the most surprising part. I guess he has some mansplainin' to do. While we think about whether Blanchett has the comic chops to play Lucy Ricardo (since she certainly has the glamor factor necessary for the real Lucille Ball), let's offer up suggestions to play her castmates Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley. Oscar Isaac as Desi Arnaz Arnaz, who was almost six years younger than Ball, began "I Love Lucy" in his mid thirties. That's a perfect fit for Isaac, who's 36. Considering Isaac's, um, sharp tone in "Drive" and believable musicianship in "Inside Llewyn Davis," I'd say he's the obvious frontrunner here. Margo Martindale as Vivian Vance Sure, »

Promo Art For Star Wars: The Force Awakens Spotlights Elite Stormtrooper

2 September 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Continuing on its promotional campaign for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney has today debuted a fresh batch of artwork for J.J. Abrams’ upcoming sequel that highlights the film’s Elite Stormtrooper and a Speeder mid-flight.

Essentially, the concept art is in effort to drum up excitement for this weekend’s Force Friday, which will herald a whole host of toys and merchandise for Episode VII. In fact, today’s trio of stills arrive mere days after promotional material drew attention to both sides of the Force, including stylized action shots of Daisy Ridley’s Rey, Chewbacca and the loveable droid that is Bb-8.

Don’t let the title fool you, though, Force Friday is primed to be a weekend event in all but name, with the first wave of toys expected to be formally revealed – or, should we say, »

Oscar Isaac Likens X-Men: Apocalypse Role To Playing God

2 September 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Oscar Isaac may have shown HBO and its legions of viewers a hero in Paul Haggis’ compelling political drama, but for 20th Century Fox’s high-profile juggernaut X-Men: Apocalypse, the star is very much situated on the other end of the moral spectrum.

That’s because he’ll be embodying the titular villain – a glowering, 5,000 year old mutant primed to unleash Old Testament levels of destruction upon man and mutantkind alike. Awakening from his prolonged slumber, Isaac’s menace assembles the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to complete his world-shaking plan, and in a recent interview with The Playlist, the actor touched upon what it’s like to portray a character who holds absolute power.

Now that principal photography has wrapped up on X-Men: Apocalypse, we’re beginning to learn much more about the story and the film’s impressive ensemble, and here’s what »

Promo Art Featuring Star Wars: The Force Awakens' 'Elite Stormtroopers' Surfaces

2 September 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Some stores are already selling Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise, and that means that certain toys and artwork is being revealed sooner than Lucasfilm would probably like. The latest features the reveal of the Elite Stormtroopers, a group who will apparently feature heavily in the movie as part of Chrysler's marketing deal with Disney. The First Order looks set to be quite different to the Empire of old, and all of these new Stormtrooper factions should give The Force Awakens a fresh feel...and shift a sh*t ton of merchandise too of course. What do you think? Starring original cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and franchise newcomers, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o and Max von SydowStar Wars Episode VII is set to be released on December 18th, »

If Oscar Isaac's Goal With This Interview Was To Convince Me He's Smart, Mission Accomplished

1 September 2015 12:26 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As an actor, Oscar Isaac has been getting a lot of attention over the last year, and for good reason. This year he already starred in Ex Machina, Mojave, and the HBO miniseries Show Me a Hero. Later in 2015 he has Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and next year he will take on the X-Men as X-Men: Apocalypse’s eponymous antagonist. However, if you’ve been following his interviews, it’s clear that the man takes his craft seriously, but his latest quotes prove just how smart he actually is when it comes to understanding his projects. When asked by The Playlist about what he took away from his roles in X-Men: Apocalypse and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Isaac got deep by citing naturalism, Stanley Kubrick, greek tragedies, and kabuki theatre. Don’t take my word for it, check out his exact words: »

Oscar Isaac Says Portraying X-men: Apocalypse Villain Is "Basically Playing God"

31 August 2015 8:25 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse is among the many 2016 comic book movies that have recently wrapped principal photography. So, when The Playlist and Paste Magazine caught up with Oscar Isaac in anticipation of his new HBO series Show Me a Hero, the sites asked the Guatemalan actor about his titular supervillain role in the mutant ensemble. "You use different tools, different approaches," said Isaac, when The Playlist asked what he learned from portraying Apocalypse in the upcoming X-Men sequel. "...It was great because there’s an embodiment of such big ideas, you’re not working in the realm of naturalism. And just because something's natural doesn’t mean that it's interesting — and I think Kubrick knew that very well. Sometimes it’s fun to push performance into other places that is not just about the same kind of verité thing. You can go to heightened places in a Greek tragedy »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens expected to shift $5 billion of merchandise in first year

31 August 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We all know that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to rake it in at the worldwide box office, with predictions of a $600 million + global opening weekend, and now analyst Tim Nollen has told The Hollywood Reporter that tie-in products for the hotly-anticipated blockbuster could pull in around $5 billion in sales within the first twelve months.

“The Force Awakens could generate $5 billion in consumer merchandise sales in its first year of release, assuming it does better than Cars 2’s $3 billion,” states Nollen. “This would easily net Disney about $500 million in licensing and retail revenue. Cars 2 sold more than $2.8 billion worth of merchandise in its first year alone in 2011, and the original Cars movie sold approximately $10 billion worth of merchandise in its first five years of release. Taking into account the strength of the Star Wars franchise, which has altogether sold over $20 billion worth of licensed goods in its lifetime, »
