If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then William Friedkin and company must have been blushing throughout the 70s, as opportunistic producers around the globe seized on The Exorcist and churned out a slew of copycats.  Italy especially just couldn’t stop ripping it off for years—nearly a full decade later, cash-ins like Satan’s Baby…

Daniel Craig denies playing a Stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, “why would I ever bother doing something like that?”

11 July 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There was a rumour a couple of months ago, started by Simon Pegg, that 007 himself Daniel Craig had a small cameo role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as a Stormtrooper. It was assumed that Pegg was joking, but that didn’t stop the rumour spreading.

But in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Craig seemed to put a stop to all the speculation.

“Why would I ever bother doing something like that?” Craig said. “Fucking hell! Pffft. Play an extra in another movie?”

To be fair Craig, it is Star Wars. So we guess that settles that, but let’s not forget that Pegg himself denied any involvement in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and was then confirmed to play an alien at San Diego Comic Con.

The San Diego Comic-Con ventured to a galaxy far, far away tonight as Lucasfilm showcased its upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a hotly-anticipated Hall H panel. They weren’t giving too much away, but here’s a rundown of what details were revealed, along with some images of the panel…

Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy, director J.J. Abrams and writer Lawrence Kasdan got things underway, with Abrams confirming that there is a cut of the movie, which they are fine tuning at present.

“There is nothing normal about getting to direct a Star Wars movie. I’ve been a fan since I was a little kid,” said Abrams. “I sat down with John Williams to show him scenes from »
