New Star Wars 8 Trailer Description Leaks?

1 hour ago

Some of you just can't help yourself. Despite Mark Hamill teasing a new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer drop in just a few short days, you all want to know right this very second exactly what it will show, and how much Rey vs. Kylo Ren action you'll be getting. Well, not much if we're to believe the latest leak. Supposedly someone has seen the very short second trailer for Star Wars 8. And there aren't any big spoilers revealed, as expected. Except that, yes, perhaps Luke Skywalker really is wearing his dead father's Kyber crystal around his neck.

That seems impossible, as it has been officially confirmed that Darth Vader's old red lightsaber was destroyed when Lando blew up the Death Star at the end of Return of the Jedi. Perhaps Luke is wearing his own green lightsaber Kyber crystal. It is red in appearance. Which happens after a Sith Lord bends the crystal, »

Gambit Movie Details Reveal a Big Heist and Mr. Sinister

2 hours ago

The Gambit movie, despite a great many setbacks, is still reportedly in development at Fox. Channing Tatum is still attached and seems quite enthusiastic about it, but after director Doug Liman left, things changed quite a bit. They decided to take the project back to square one, which may not be a bad thing since the successes of Deadpool and Logan will allow for them to take more chances. With all of that said, some rumored plot details for the Gambit movie have arrived online and they are pretty insane.

Splash Report brings us these rumored plot details for the Gambit movie, which promises that the movie will essentially be Ocean's 11 within the X-Men universe. The plot also promises that fan-favorite villain Mr. Sinister will finally be making his big screen debut, assuming this plot does in any way resemble what we ultimately see when the movie eventually gets made. »

Uncharted Movie Wants Bryan Cranston

2 hours ago

Sony has been trying for years to get the Uncharted movie off the ground, but they have a solid team in place right now. Shawn Levy (Real Steel) has been tapped to direct and, earlier this year, it was revealed that Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland is going to play a young version of Nathan Drake. Now, it sounds like Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston is circling the long-awaited video game adaptation in an unspecified role.

The news comes courtesy of That Hashtag Show, who report that Sony is currently pursuing Bryan Cranston for a "large supporting role" in the Uncharted movie. While there's no word on who Cranston is going to play, it is possible he could be playing Victor Sullivan. The age gap between Cranson and Tom Holland could make that tricky, but there's no arguing that he would probably kill the role. That Hashtag Show also notes »

Piracy is nothing new in Hollywood, but it continues to be a big issue. One of the most recent movies to fall victim to piracy is Cult of Chucky, the forthcoming seventh installment of the Child's Play franchise. The movie recently leaked online in its entirety and director Don Mancini, as one might expect, is none too happy about it. Unfortunately for those who leaked Cult of Chucky online, Universal's lawyers aren't thrilled either.

Mohammed al-Hathri, a secretary and educational chief in Saudi Arabia was fired after Star Wars character Yoda was spotted in a text book next to a Saudi King.

Education minister Ahmed al-Eissa has described the incident as an unintended mistake while also announcing that new versions of the textbook were already being produced to fix the Jedi Master error.

Rey Reunites with Han Solo and Chewbacca in New Star Wars Animated Short

9 hours ago

One reason fans are angry that J.J. Abrams is returning to director Star Wars 9? Because the rest of the Star Wars team has had to do some huge recon to fix various plot holes the filmmaker left in the wake of The Force Awakens. One way Lucasfilm is doing this is with a series of animated shorts called Star Wars Forces of Destiny. And an upcoming installment plans to explain how and why Rey was so proficient at flying and fixing the Millennium Falcon.

This animated short will also reunite Rey with Han Solo and Chewbacca. As the mighty trio were only ever together in The Force Awakens timeline before Han Solo's untimely death at the hands of his own son, Kylo Ren, this latest short could very well be considered a 'deleted scene' that fixes some of the plot holes fans have questions ever since Star Wars 7 was released »
