Yesterday /Film posted a rumour regarding the plot for Gareth Edwards’ (Godzilla) standalone Star Wars movie – suggesting that the story will revolve around a team of bounty hunters hired by the Rebellion to steal the plans to the Death Star – and now the site is back with another Star Wars story, this time concerning Lucasfilm’s animated Star Wars adventures.
According to the site, Disney and Lucasfilm plans to have Star Wars Rebels running for three or four seasons before launching a new animated series that will take place in the timeline of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the two subsequent chapters of the Sequel Trilogy and feature an entirely new cast of characters. It will reportedly launch around the same time as the release of Rian Johnson’s as-yet-untitled Star Wars: Episode VIII.
This should of course be taken with a pinch of salt until we hear something official, »

As anticipation grows for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, arriving in theaters this weekend, Star Wars: Episode VIII is firming up its behind-the-scenes team. Rick Heinrichs has officially come aboard the project to serve as production designer. His previous movies include Captain America: The First Avenger and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Aside from the June announcement that Rian Johnson will write and direct both Star Wars: Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX, Rick Heinrichs is the only other confirmed crew member announced regarding these follow-ups to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We reported in August that Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley will be back for the sequels. That has never been confirmed by Disney or LucasFilm.
The gears in composer Alexandre Desplat’s head are always turning. They have to be; even with a packed scheduled — he’ll see five films hit American screens before the end of 2014 — his artistic process is still one of care and contemplation. With each new score, Desplat chisels out a sound that’s recognizably story-driven, interwoven with theme and individual from his other works. In his new film, "The Imitation Game," the composer translates Alan Turing’s life into a fractaling piano score that encompasses both the mathematician’s achievements — cracking the Nazi’s "Enigma Code" with a proto-computer known as the Turing Machine — and an emotional frustration bubbling underneath the surface. If Desplat’s espionage sounds click with Oscar voters, "The Imitation Game" would net him his seventh Academy Award nomination. He previously nabbed a spot in the top five with "The Queen," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, »

With a worldwide gross of more than $524 million, Godzilla has proven his title as King of the Monsters.

Right now is a hot time for Star Wars news. The first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is about to drop, and to add more fuel to the ridiculous amount of anticipation building inside our Jedi-lovin' hearts, a new report today claims to reveal the plot for the first Star Wars spin-off movie, due to hit theaters in 2016, to be directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla). According to Slashfilm, the spin-off will be a sort-of prequel to A New Hope in that it will follow the rebels' attempt to steal the Death Star plans from the Empire. Remember, the rebels already have the plans in their possession at the beginning of A New Hope, so this movie will show us how they got them... and apparently it will be from an unlikely group of individuals. Bounty hunters. Yup, the...

Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures' Godzilla was a monster-hit at the global box office this year, pulling in $525M. Part of what made the Gareth Edwards-directed film a box office champ was the visual effects, which were provided by the Moving Picture Company (Mpc). Below, is a four-minute video showcasing their work. Check it out. Reimagining of the 1954 Japanese Science fiction film about the destruction caused by a giant monster. When a devastating event is covered up as a natural disaster, nuclear physicist Joe Brody realises something much more sinister is to blame. Scientists Dr. Ichiro Serizawa and Dr. Vivienne Graham reveal that in 1954 a powerful monster was awakened, and though 'nuclear tests' were carried out in the Pacific Ocean to destroy it, the creature has now returned. With the Us Armed Forces -- including Joe's son Navy Lieutenant Ford Brody -- called into action, humanity fights for its »
This has been an exciting week for Star Wars fans, with the announcement about the limited release of the Force Awakens trailer, and now the rumored plot to the 2016 Star Wars spinoff film by Gareth Edwards and Gary Whitta has hit the Web. This film will be the first of three Star Wars spin off films. While the plot for Edwards and Whitta.s film isn.t officially confirmed, the rumored plot sounds incredibly exciting, and it seems to be a story worth spending an entire movie to tell. According to SlashFilm, the film will allegedly center around an intergalactic heist. More specifically, this movie will center around a group trying to steal the plans for the first Death Star. So while the story will be set in the same time period as A New Hope, it looks like we won.t be following actual members of the Rebel Alliance »
While Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been chewing up all the headlines over the past couple of weeks ahead of the much-anticipated first teaser trailer — set to arrive by the end of this week, mind you — the rumors for Disney’s upcoming spinoff films have gradually been gaining more and more traction. And the one getting the most attention of late is Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars movie, which will be the first to make its bow following J.J. Abrams’ trip to a galaxy far, far away.
But rather than continue in the modern universe, according to this unnamed source, Edwards’ spinoff is set to take place before the events of A New Hope and follow a group of Rebel fighters who chalk up a plan to complete the most audacious heist in the galaxy: steal and destroy the blueprints of the Death Star before it is built.

Their source also says the Millennium Falcon is somehow involved, but Han Solo is not a character in the film. Also a main character of this film will be introduced in 'The Force Awakens'. Secondary sources of theirs suggest their story has "a few strings of truth, »

How about we take a break from all the news about Star Wars: The Force Awakens to talk about one of the Star Wars spin-off moves that is currently in development. /Film came across some information regarding the plot of the Star Wars standalone film that is being directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Gary Whitta. If you don't want to know anything about this, then I suggest you steer clear of the rest of this article.
Apparently, the 2016 Star Wars movie is going to tell a story about a group of people who will pull off the "ultimate heist in a galaxy far, far away." I'm a huge fan of heist movies, so a heist movie set in the Star Wars universe sounds awesome! Now, what does the heist entail? According to the report, the group is going to steal "one of the most important linchpins in »

Now SlashFilm has learned from a variety of sources that the first Star Wars spin-off will focus on one of the most important plot points in the saga's history.

Following the news of the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuting this coming Friday in select IMAX cinemas in the Us, some plot rumours have surfaced about the spin-off movie, set for release in 2016 and to be directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla).
According to /Film and their “several sources”, the movie will take place before Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and will see a group of bounty hunters hired to take on the ultimate job – steal the plans for the Death Star. Think Suicide Squad meets Ocean’s Eleven.
One of the other rumours to go along with this story is that the protagonist will be one of the new additions to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, suggesting that it would be a younger version of Max Von Sydow’s character. They also claim the movie will possibly feature The Millenium Falcon, »

You can see the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer this weekend, but we can now look even further ahead as a new rumor has surfaced regarding Gareth Edwards' Star Wars spin-off plot. These spin-offs have the unique ability to take place anywhere in the Star Wars timeline. The new episodes will be tethered to each other and must take place post-Return of the Jedi, and that's fine, but the spin-offs can do what Star Wars does best: build its universe. I would put Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic right next to A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back as my favorite Star Wars story. I want to see behind all the corners and know what's going on beyond the saga of the Skywalkers. The rumor for the Star Wars spin-off hints at a very cool plot that's unlike anything we've seen before, »

If this information turns out to be true, there will be some massive Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk:
First off, LucasFilm would not comment on these rumored plot details, so it remains to be seen how long it will be before we know whether or not this story is true. Some sources acknowledged that this story "is possible" and that "it has a few strings of truth," but it may not be the whole truth. However, if confirmed, this Star Wars spin-off could get even more buzz leading up to its December 16, 2016 release.
The story reportedly centers on a group of bounty hunters who are trying to pull »

SlashFilm are usually reliable when it comes to scoops (they got that news about the release of the trailer debut for The Force Awakens right), so don't be afraid to start getting excited about Godzilla director Gareth Edwards' 2016 Star Wars spinoff. According to the site, it's going to focus on a group of bounty hunters hired by the Rebel Alliance to steal the plans of the first Death Star. That obviously means the movie will be set before A New Hope, but this is a pivotal moment in Star Wars history as it kicked off the events of the Original Trilogy. In terms of the approach to the movie, the site reveals that we should, "think the Seven Samurai or Suicide Squad meets Ocean’s Eleven in the world of Star Wars." They have some other interesting details too though, including the fact that the Millennium Falcon is somehow involved, »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…
Variety’s Maane Khatchatourian covers James Gunn’s Facebook comments regarding shared movie universe building:
“The director implies that franchises like “Star Wars,” “Iron Man,” “The Dark Knight” and even “Transformers” and “Twilight” are in the clear because they were conceived as single films and only grew into movie series following audience demand. “But these days studios are trying to grow trees without a strong seed,” he wrote. “Execs and producers and sometimes even directors are focused on the big picture, without perfecting the task directly in front of them — making a great movie.”
Read Gunn’s full comments here.
It is interesting how James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy, has criticised the one thing that ensured the success of his film. Of course, had Guardians of the Galaxy been produced by a different studio without the connections to the Marvel universe, »

As of now, there are already two Star Wars spin-off films lined up after Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives next December. Godzilla director Gareth Edwards is already signed to direct the first one, arriving just one year after Episode VII, and Lucasfilm has already lined up Chronicle director Josh Trank to be at the helm of whatever spin-off will follow Episode VIII from Looper director Rian Johnson. However, is there a chance that another spin-off is in the works? The Better Angels director A.J. Edwards partook in a Reddit Ama and was asked about potential involvement in the revival of the Star Wars franchise. Read on! Now we're pretty sure that Edwards was just joking around (sarcasm is hard to detect in text, especially online), but the director responded, "Talking about it, not able to say a lot yet. It will focus on Mace Windu." Aside from the »
