Thankfully, we do have one more Star Wars: The Force Awakens tidbit, which hints that we may be seeing more of the iconic Mark Hamill very soon. Earlier today, Omaze posted a new video with director J.J. Abrams, on behalf of their successful Force For Change campaign, which raised over $7 million for Unicef. The end of this video teases that Mark Hamill may appear in a new video arriving sometime next week.
If you've been following Star Wars: The Force Awakens over the past few years, you have noticed a distinct lack of Mark Hamill's beloved character Luke Skywalker in any of the footage and photos released thus far. J.J. Abrams himself has teased that he has been purposefully holding back this Jedi warrior from the fans, »

At just 25 years of age, Jennifer Lawrence is easily one of the hottest stars in Hollywood, with two blockbuster franchises under her belt, The Hunger Games and the X-Men prequels. With the final Hunger Games movie, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, currently in theaters, and her X-Men trilogy coming to a close next year with X-Men: Apocalypse, many are wondering what's next for this talented actress. Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with Jennifer Lawrence, who revealed that she is planning on making her directorial debut soon, with a dark comedy entitled Project Delirium.
"I'd also like to direct a comedy. I have wanted to direct as long as I've wanted to act. I just don't talk about it because I'd rather just do it. I've signed on to direct something called Project Delirium - it's based on this article about mental warfare in the '60s, like an acid experiment gone terribly wrong. »
'Men in Black 4' Has a Female Lead; Will Smith May Return
8 hours ago
Back in September, producers Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald revealed that their languishing sequel Men in Black 4 will actually reinvent the entire franchise, with plans for a new reboot trilogy. The producers also revealed that original stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will likely not be back to reprise their roles as Agent J and Agent K, but very little is known about the story at this time. The producers recently spoke with BBC News Beat, where Laurie MacDonald revealed that they are eyeing a "prominent" female character to become a new agent.
"There will be a prominent woman in black in the fourth [film]."
Back in May 2013, screenwriter Oren Uziel signed on to write the screenplays for both Men in Black 4 and 22 Jump Street, which was released last year. Leaked emails from the Sony hack revealed that the studio was considering a Jump Street and Men in Black crossover, »

9 hours ago
This week is Thanksgiving, pushing us full force into the holiday season. And to celebrate, Adam Sadler is bringing an early present for everyone! No matter what your religion is, you've probably enjoyed listening to his iconic Chanukah Song. Now, he's updated it. And there are some surprising and hilarious new inclusions.
As the title might suggest, this reworked Chanukah Song is the fourth version that Adam Sadler has released over the past 21 years. And as you can see, he's not really into celebrating the catchy holiday theme on its anniversary, instead surprising fans unexpectedly with his revised take on the classic. He opens the new video by gleefully telling those in the audience that he is about to introduce a fourth list of Jewish individuals. Not all of them, whom, mind you, should be celebrated.
Probably the biggest laugh in this new version of the Chanukah Song comes when he mentions Jared from Subway, »

There is a lot to process in this footage, including our first glimpse at Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther, and a continuation of Ant-Man's end credit sequence, where Cap and The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) have finally tracked down Bucky Barnes, a.k.a.

11 hours ago
Back in September, production got under way on Warner Bros.' The Conjuring: The Enfield Poltergeist, which started with an actual priest arriving to bless the set. Last month, we got our first look at the Warrens, played by returning stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, in new set photos from director James Wan. Earlier this week, the filmmaker took to his Twitter and Instagram pages again to share even more photos from the set, featuring Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga and our first look at co-star Simon McBurney.
Production started in Los Angeles this fall, but the shooting has now shifted to London, with James Wan sharing photos of the cast outside of Marylebone Station.

Olsen Twins Not Returning for 'Fuller House'
11 hours ago
After months of waiting for a definitive answer, we now have one. The beloved character of Michelle Tanner will not be making an appearance on the new Netflix Full House reunion series. Former co-star Lori Loughlin, who will reprise her role as Aunt Becky in Fuller House, confirmed the news with The Huffington Post
Episodes of Fuller House have already taped in front of a live studio audience. And the half hour comedy will debut sometime in 2016 on the streaming service. But it will be without, arguably, the original show's most popular set of twins. While they were offered a chance to return, both Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen declined to participate. Perhaps it's because they would have had to share the role once again, something they haven't done since leaving the show in the 90s.
The pair portrayed the youngest member of the Tanner family for 8 seasons, and even »
Is 'Spider-Man' in the 'Captain America: Civil War' Trailer?
12 hours ago
Last night, stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. appeared on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where they revealed the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War. Naturally, fans have been poring over the footage ever since, looking for any clues or possible Easter Eggs hiding in plain sight. The folks at Culture Buff have put together a slow-motion video featuring one key scene in the trailer, where they posit that the new Spider-Man (Tom Holland) is briefly seen.
The scene in question comes at the 1:33 mark of the trailer, where The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) is seen leaping off a building, before deploying his wings and flying over a bystander on the ground. This mystery person can clearly be seen wearing a red shirt or jacket, leading to the speculation that this individual may be the new Spider-Man. Since we don't know what the new Spider-Man's costume looks like yet, »
'Star Wars' Prequel Trilogy Was Almost Directed by These 3 Iconic Filmmakers
12 hours ago
One of the numerous reasons many fans are excited for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, in theaters December 18, is that they were so disappointed in the prequel trilogy, 1999's Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and 2005's Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, and George Lucas isn't involved this time around. Unlike the original trilogy, where George Lucas only directed Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, the filmmaker directed all three prequels, but, as it turns out, he originally didn't want to take the helm. Director Ron Howard recently appeared on MTV's Happy Sad Confused podcast, to promote his new film In the Heart of the Sea, where he revealed that George Lucas had approached him to direct the prequels, along with two other legendary filmmakers.
"He didn't necessarily want to direct them. He »
'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Is Rated PG-13 for Action and Violence
12 hours ago
With just 23 days left until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, not too many people have actually seen the film, aside from a terminally ill fan who was granted a private screening, just days before he passed away. And we know a few select members of the cast and crew's family have enjoyed a screening. Today, we learn of at least one other person who has now seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a member of the MPAA ratings board, who according to Box Office Mojo, has given the film a PG-13 rating, for "sci-fi action and violence." This news doesn't come as much of a surprise, given that most big-budget movies of this ilk are PG-13. But at least now we know for sure.
Matt Damon Gets Bloody in Latest 'Bourne 5' Set Photos
12 hours ago
Back in September, principal photography got under way on Universal Pictures' long-awaited Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel, a.k.a. Bourne 5, with producer Frank Marshall sharing the first photo of Matt Damon as Jason Bourne. Production is still under way, with new photos arriving from the Kreuzberg, Germany set, thanks to We Got This Covered and several other sources. While all of these photos feature Matt Damon in action, one of them reveals his face has been bloodied quite badly, despite the smile on his face.
We last saw Matt Damon as Jason Bourne in 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum, which wrapped up a trilogy of adaptations based on Robert Ludlum's spy novels. After that adaptation hit theaters, Matt Damon said that he wouldn't come back for another follow-up unless director Paul Greengrass came back, and they had a story they both wanted to work on. Matt Damon revealed this fall that the script, »
Here's Why You Need to See 'The Hateful Eight' in 70mm
15 hours ago
On Christmas Day, director Quentin Tarantino will roll out his eighth feature film, The Hateful Eight, in a limited "roadshow" presentation in 70mm. Fans will have two weeks to see this revenge Western in 70mm, before it debuts nationwide with digital projection on January 8. Fandango has released a seven-minute featurette that explains the importance of this 70mm presentation, and offers some history on the roadshow format, which hasn't been used for years.
One advantage of seeing the 70 mm roadshow is fans will get a longer cut of the movie than they'd see in the nationwide release. Quentin Tarantino revealed last month that the 70mm version will include six minutes of extra footage, a trademark of classic roadshow presentations such as Gone With the Wind, Ben-Hur and many more. We also hear from Samuel L. Jackson, who explains that the 70mm presentation gives viewers an image that is twice as large as a traditional movie. »

'Creed' Review: Rocky Delivers a Knockout Blow
17 hours ago
Creed, quite simply, is a winner. It is a fantastic film that will stir your soul. Boxing dramas can be hideously contrived. Creed is formulaic at times, but its great strength is that it surpasses convention. Creed builds relationships, establishes depth, and takes the audience on a journey that is profoundly uplifting. We also get to see a legendary actor and movie persona at their best in decades. Creed is not Rocky VII. It is a continuation of the story with a new character as the focus. Director Ryan Coogler, who stunned the world with his gripping debut - Fruitvale Station, delivers a knockout blow with Creed.
Michael B. Jordan stars as Adonis "Donnie" Johnson, the illegitimate youngest child of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), who was killed fighting in Rocky IV. Orphaned as a child. He bounces from foster homes and juvenile detention, until his adoption by Apollo Creed's »
