Star Wars: The Last Jedi New Promotional Image Shows Off New Character

6 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The countdown to the second installment of LucasFilm’s new Star Wars trilogy continues. The Last Jedi will be in theaters in just a few short months. Lucasfilm, as secretive as always has not been forthcoming with many details. While The Last Jedi has no official presence at Sdcc we do have a new promotional image. A close up shot of Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley), and one of the better looks at the new character Rose, who is played by Kelly Marie Tran.

In the photo, Finn can be seen wearing the jacket of Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron, who curiously is not featured in the photo. Rey adorns a smoky gray outfit and is holding Luke’s old lightsaber, positioned in a fighting stance. Kelly Marie Tran’s character, Rose, is also shown and is thought to be a maintenance worker in the resistance.

Venice: New Films by George Clooney, Guillermo Del Toro, Stephen Frears Expected to World Premiere (Exclusive)

21 July 2017 6:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – George Clooney’s “Suburbicon,” Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” Stephen Frears’ “Victoria and Abdul,” and Paolo Virzi’s “Ella and John,” starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland, are among the titles strongly tipped to world premiere at the upcoming 74th Venice Film Festival.

Also expected to make their worldwide bows on the Lido are Paul Schrader’s “First Reformed,” Andrew Haigh’s “Lean on Pete,” and Lucrecia Martel’s “Zama.”

Less than a week before the official announcement, the buzz on the Venice lineup remains somewhat muted, though some locked-in titles have surfaced, including Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing,” which will open the fest. There’s also certainty over the absence of some titles – especially “Blade Runner 2049” and Darren Aronofsky’s “Mother!”, both high-profile movies that had been considered as possibilities.

Suburbicon,” starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Josh Brolin, and Oscar Isaac, looks set to be the second Paramount picture to launch from »

Julia Roberts drama 'Homecoming' lands at Amazon Studios

19 July 2017 3:53 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Universal Cable Productions and Anonymous Content to produce.

Amazon Studios has prevailed in the race to secure global rights to the upcoming psychological thriller series Homecoming starring Julia Roberts.

Sources confirmed to Screen that Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail will direct and serve as executive producer on the half-hour drama being produced by Universal Cable Productions and Mr. Robot producer Anonymous Content.

Amazon is understood to have ordered two seasons of Homecoming, which is based on a fiction podcast by Gimlet Media about caseworker at a top secret government facility and a soldier.

Roberts would play the caseworker in what has become another TV project on her to-do list after HBO made a development deal last month for Annapurna Television’s limited series Today Will Be Different.

Podcast creators Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg are adapting the screenplay from the source material, which starred Catherine Keener and Oscar Isaac.

Esmail is producing via his Esmail Corp alongside »

Rian Johnson compares Star Wars: The Last Jedi to the Original Trilogy

19 July 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens was an enormous success at the box office, one of the biggest criticisms aimed at the film was that it adhered to closely to the plot of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. And, with December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi said to be taking the characters down a darker route – as well as reportedly revealing “The Most Shocking Truth In Star Wars History” – there has been some concern that the next movie will attempt to be the Empire Strikes Back of the Sequel Trilogy.

The Empire comparison is one that isn’t lost on director Rian Johnson, and speaking to Fandango, the filmmaker has acknowledged that there are some similarities, although he also compares the tone to that of The Force Awakens and Return of the Jedi:

‘Homecoming’ Creator Eli Horowitz on Turning the Hit Podcast Into a TV Show and Starting Over in Season 2

19 July 2017 9:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One of things that makes “Homecoming” great is what it can’t show you.

As one of the driving creative forces behind the most popular scripted series in podcasting, Eli Horowitz explains that it took a while to figure out how to make that limitation work to his advantage. Horowitz created “Homecoming” alongside Micah Bloomberg, with whom he also wrote and directs every episode of the series. As the show releases the premiere of its second season on Wednesday, he thinks they’ve finally started to figure out how this world operates.

“In audio, certain things are harder: establishing the setting, establishing who’s talking, giving each scene its own texture,” Horowitz said, in a recent IndieWire interview. “At first those seem like obstacles or limitations: chores you have to do. What we’re starting to get better at is using them as creative prompts. How can set this in »

Will Luke Skywalker Wield A Lightsaber In Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Mark Hamill Weighs In

18 July 2017 9:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The lightsaber, an elegant weapon for a more civilized age, has been a cornerstone of the Star Wars universe ever since George Lucas first introduced moviegoers to that iconic galaxy far, far away in ’77.

It’s a legacy that continued through the release of The Force Awakens, too, which reached its conclusion just as Daisy Ridley’s Rey delivered her lightsaber to its rightful owner: Luke Skywalker. Mark Hamill’s Jedi Master spent much of J.J. Abrams’ franchise reboot in a self-imposed exile, and we understand that absence will have huge ramifications for Luke’s budding relationship with Rey come December. She’s the student to his all-powerful master, essentially, and though Luke Skywalker believes it’s time for the Jedi to end (!), it appears as though a fair portion of Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be devoted to Rey’s intense training regime aboard Ahch-To, the far-flung planet »

Rian Johnson says Luke and Rey are “the beating heart” of Star Wars: The Last Jedi

17 July 2017 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the Star Wars: The Last Jedi panel at D23, during which we got a behind-the-scenes sizzle reel for the hotly-anticipated blockbuster [watch it here], director Rian Johnson is out doing the media rounds, discussing everything from the meaning of the title (once again) to the heart of the blockbuster during an interview with Good Morning America.

According to Johnson, “It’s tough to talk about [the title] without talking about it in the context of the movie. [It doesn’t] necessarily have multiple meanings, but its meaning evolves over the course of the film. It’s tough to talk about without getting into the story, but for me, I guess what it ultimately comes down to is that first question of, ‘What is the deal with Luke Skywalker?’ Luke and Rey are kind of the beating heart of the film, I guess, [as is] their relationship. So The Last Jedi in all the things that it means is tied up in it. »
