Thank you from the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

19 December 2014 6:14 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams gave fans their very first look the new film with a video from the set. Though it put many of us ease with its use of real sets and props, it was actually designed to promote the charity initiative “Force for Change” and raise money for the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef). A second video was released later, which gave us all a fantastic look at the new X-Wing (with pilot!). Now, a third video has arrived and it features Abrams offering his thanks alongside the gratitude of the entire Episode VII cast and crew. You might notice one or two well known characters…

Unicef’s current network of 14 Innovation Labs help create sustainable solutions to critical issues facing children around the world in the areas of nutrition, water, health, and education. The funds raised through “Star Wars »

Andy Serkis talks Star Wars: The Force Awakens

18 December 2014 1:08 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Not much is known about the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Last month we got to see the first trailer which got fans very excited, but the cast of the film are keeping their mouths shut on any details about the film.

Whilst on the red carpet for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, actor Andy Serkis spoke to Entertainment Weekly, revealing a few minor details about who he is playing, but still not giving a great deal away.

We heard Andy Serkis’ voice in the trailer and he was asked if it was altered in anyway to cover it up, he said: “That is the character, there’s no digital manipulation. That’s just me.”

He was then asked about the rumour of having multiple roles in the film to which he responded: “Not true at all, I can say I only play one character. »

Mark Hamill on Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer and practical effects

14 December 2014 12:19 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A fortnight ago, we got our first glimpse of Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy with the release of the first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with J.J. Abrams opting against showing any returning characters from the original movies in favour of giving us the briefest of introductions to the new cast members. Speaking to Yahoo!, Mark Hamill has admitted that this came as little surprise to him, as the movie is shifting the focus away from the likes of Luke, Han and Leia to a younger crop of characters:

“This is about the new generation of characters; I think that’s the most important thing. It’s the opening act of a whole new approach to the storytelling. So I never thought that the stories would be – first of all, I never thought I’d be involved in it again, period. And then when George [Lucas] said »

You're Killing Me: 8 lessons from horror's (mostly) horrible 2014

14 December 2014 9:31 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With a slew of major commercial (and often critical) hits like "The Conjuring," "Insidious: Chapter 2," "World War Z," "Warm Bodies" and the terrific "Evil Dead" remake, 2013 was a great year for horror. 2014? Eeh...let's just say the business of fright was a little weak. And it wasn't just the numbers, which were bad enough - only 4 horror films broke $50 million domestic this year as compared with last year's 9 - but the quality of the films themselves that disappointed. If we're being honest, the number of truly worthwhile mainstream horror films this year can probably be counted on one hand. So what did we learn from horror's (mostly) horrible 2014? Below are 8 lessons we'll be taking away. Lesson #1: Even in a down year, horror remains the most consistently profitable genre Judging strictly by budget-to-worldwide gross ratio, the only true flop this year was the bloated Aaron Eckhart reboot "I, Frankenstein, »

11 December 2014 1:05 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Wars theme park attractions will be based on new movies

11 December 2014 9:24 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since Disney purchased Lucasfilm, it was only a matter of time before the Star Wars theme park attractions at Disney World were going to expand.

Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger spoke about the expansions and plans in an interview saying, “there will be a much larger Star Wars presence in our parks globally. But we want to do this big, which takes time, and to do it right… I didn’t want someone to say, ‘I just saw the movie and there’s nothing in that movie in this [attraction].’ We waited to see what this film would have in it.”

Iger went on to confirm that plans are already in place for new attractions based on the upcoming slate of Star Wars movies, pushing aside the previous plans based on the old saga. “We couldn’t tell them what was new,” Iger said. “I slowed it all down so »

William Friedkin on why he is beating the drum for 'The Babadook'

9 December 2014 1:12 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For a first time director to attract the attention of an icon of cinema is a heady experience. So imagine the feelings of Jennifer Kent, the Australian director of the new low budget, independent horror film The Babadook, when she saw this tweet from none other than William Friedkin, director of The Exorcist himself: I've never seen a more terrifying film than The Babadook. It will scare the hell out of you as it did me. — William Friedkin (@WilliamFriedkin) December 1, 2014 Since that first tweet, Friedkin has made beating the drums for The Babadook something of a personal cause celebre, continuing to champion it online and introducing a midnight screening last weekend at La’s Vista Theater. We spoke with William Friedkin by phone to find out how this little film had captured his attention. Hitfix: How did you discover The Babadook?

George Lucas hasn’t watched the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer

8 December 2014 5:48 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having shattered all kinds of records since its release online, it seems everyone has watched the trailer for Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens…

Well, everyone that is except Star Wars creator George Lucas, who has told Page Six that he’s yet to see the teaser, and doesn’t plan to watch it any time soon.

“I don’t know anything about [the teaser],” revealed Lucas. “I haven’t seen it yet. It’s not in the movie theater. I like going to the movies and watching the whole thing there. I plan to see it when it’s released.”

Lucas apparently then went on to say that he’s “not really” curious about what J.J. Abrams has in store for the first chapter of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy.

SNL recreates the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer

7 December 2014 3:36 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After the many satires and spoofs surrounding the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer it seems Saturday Night Live are also riding the wave and have delivered their own humorous take on the teaser.

Seeing as the original trailer doesn’t include any appearances from iconic actors Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, SNL decided it was about time to give Star Wars fans their idea of what the returning stars may be like. The spoof pokes fun at the age of the returning characters, showing Leia in reading glasses, an aging and confused Han Solo, a Luke Skywalker struggling to walk and a Chewbacca who’s forced into wearing a dog’s surgical cone.

Unfortunately the video isn’t fully available in the UK, but you can watch some highlights below or if you live in the right area you can watch the whole thing on the NBC website. »

Oscar Isaac talks about Star Wars: The Force Awakens

6 December 2014 9:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of days ago we heard from Oscar Isaac about his upcoming role as En Sabah Nur in the 2016 mutant superhero sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, but before then he’ll will be venturing to a galaxy far, far away in J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens, and the actor has shared a few comments about the first instalment of Disney’s hotly-anticipated sequel trilogy during a chat with IGN…

“There was just so much love poured into it and so much care. The thing is, when you rely on the latest technology to tell your story — and that’s it — that dates. It can date badly. Whereas, when you actually make the stuff, I think there’s something about that that is a little bit more ageless. It was totally like living out a childhood dream. Being on those sets and being surrounded by those people — talking to Anthony Daniels, »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ main trailer will reportedly be attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron

2 December 2014 1:22 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The internet is still getting over the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens which was unveiled last week. After causing a great deal of excitement, fans are eager to know when the next trailer for Episode VII will be unveiled, offering up more footage from our return to a galaxy far, far away.

With the film still over a year away it seems it will be a few months before we get our first look at new footage, with Slash Film reporting that the first full trailer will be shown in front of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron in May, as well as Tomorrowland, Disney’s mysterious project which is also set for release in May.

So, looks like we have a bit of a wait on our hands before we get to see more Star Wars

Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer fast becoming the most watched of all time

2 December 2014 2:48 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This past Friday the world finally got to witness the first teaser trailer from the hotly anticipated new Star Wars movie from director J.J. Abrams and since then it’s been pretty difficult to browse social media without seeing some sort of reference to it, whether it be lame criticism, fangasms or hilarious parodies. It’s now officially stolen the best first week viewings of 2014 from previous titleholder Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In just five days The Force Awakens trailer has already smashed through the 58.2 million view mark on Youtube. Age of Ultron could only rack up 50.6 million in its first week.

According to the whizz kids over at Zefr – the technology firm behind the numbers – The Force Awakens is on course to become the most viewed trailer ever. Despite a close fight from Jurassic World – which hit 53.9 million in it’s first week respectively – the 88 seconds of new Star Wars »
