Director Rian Johnson Teases The Star Wars: The Last Jedi Opening Crawl With An Image From The Editing Bay

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

Yesterday, we finally found out that the next installment in the main Star Wars saga would be subtitled The Last Jedi, and director Rian Johnson has now teased the movie's opening crawl with a new behind-the-scenes Instagram post, which he captioned: "Felt so good to drop this into the cut this morning." The pic doesn't actually provide us with any hints as to how the crawl will begin (aside from the main title, obvioulsy), but it's still a cool little tease, and might well be an indication that some more substantial reveals are on their way.   Felt so good to drop this into the cut this morning.

6 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, LucasFilm finally made it official, announcing that Star Wars 8 would now be known as Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The full title will likely be the precursor to the first trailer, which has been rumored to debut in the first quarter of this year, with some believing it will debut during Star Wars Celebration in Orlando this April. To help pass the time between now and then, director Rian Johnson took to Instagram earlier today, revealing that he placed the title into the movie today for the first time. Here's what he had to say in a brief statement.

"Felt so good to drop this into the cut this morning."

The Instgram photo was taken from the edit bay, where fans can only see the very top of the crawl, reading "Episode VIII The Last Jedi." We can also see an R2-D2 model tucked away into a corner, below one of the speakers, »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser Poster Has Arrived

23 January 2017 11:54 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, Disney and Lucasfilm finally unveiled the official title of Star Wars 8, which is already causing controversy amongst the franchise's many fans. Now, we have the official Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser poster, which shows off the title along with the December release month. Nothing else is revealed by this poster.

Except that the iconic Star Wars logo is Sith red this time instead of New Hope yellow, which accompanied The Force Awakens teaser poster when it arrived way back in 2014. Many have believed that Star Wars: The Last Jedi would be curbing from The Empire Strikes Back in its story telling. But the red letters are giving the movie a distinct Return of the Jedi vibe that has left some fans scratching their heads.

Other fans are perplexed by the title itself. Who is the last Jedi? Wasn't Luke Skywalker training new Jedi? Luke Skywalker »

The Title For Rian Johnson's Star Wars: Episode VIII Has Now Been Officially Revealed As The Last Jedi

23 January 2017 7:12 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Lucasfilm has just officially announced that "the next chapter of the Skywalker saga" will be titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and unveiled the teaser poster below. Ever since J.J. Abrams' The Force Awakens began its theatrical run fans have speculated about what the next instalment in the saga could be called, and more recently several rumoured titled did the rounds - but as far as we know nobody guessed it'd be anything like this. You'll notice the poster utilises a red font, which while not as common as the usual yellow, is not a first - though up until now it has been reserved for the final film in the previous trilogies. As for the title itself, though it may seem fairly self-explanatory, "The Last Jedi" doesn't necessarily refer to just one character. What do you guys think? Sound off below. Star Wars: The Last Jedi will star Mark Hamill, »

Only 17% of Rogue One Dialogue Is Spoken by a Female Character

20 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A lot has been made bout the fact that both Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One have female lead characters, but a new study shows that might not be all it's cracked up to be. While both of these latest entries in the Star Wars franchise do have strong women as protagonist, both movies are still quite male heavy. Even lopsided. A new study shows that only 17% of the dialogue in Rogue One is spoken by one of the movies few female characters.

Jyn Erso led Rogue One to becoming the highest grossing movie in the U.S., no small feat that Felicity Jones helped push the movie to the top the box office as the face of this first Star Wars anthology movie. The prequel was also praised for its diverse cast. But diving deeper into the story elements, and what actually happens on screen shows »

Film Review: Gravity of Poetic Dreams Carry Weight in ‘Paterson’

20 January 2017 8:12 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – What is more ordinary than a man alone with his thoughts, and then applying those thoughts to paper in the form of poetry? “Paterson” is a celebration of such ritual, and other dreams in the working class. It never panders, it never makes the “hero” that heroic, but it does challenge him in an ordinary sense, to work it out as meaningful poetics.

Rating: 5.0/5.0

This is a quiet and low-keyed film, directed by independent icon Jim Jarmusch (“Broken Flowers”), but it resonates with the power of words and purpose. The main character is a bus driver, but his status in life is not determined by what he does, but how he lives. He is devoted to his wife, who also dreams – not of words, but in the ideal of finding her passion in life. This is a concise character study that fires on emotions and intellectual stimulation, not because »
