ABC clarifies previous comments on a live-action Star Wars TV show

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in August ABC sent Star Wars fans into a bit of a frenzy when network executive Channing Dungey appeared to confirm that talks were underway with Lucasfilm about bringing the galaxy far, far away to the small screen.

As it turned out, it seemed that Dunning has spoken a little too soon as ABC Television President Ben Sherwood played down the report, stating that Lucasfilm has “a lot of movies to make” before we can start thinking about a TV show, and now Dungey has reiterated those comments in an interview with EW.

“That was sort of a conversation at TCA that got blown way out of proportion. We have had some conversations in general about wanting to find a way to bring something from the Lucas Star Wars Universe to ABC, but that’s far into the future. The focus at the moment for Lucas is on the »

Sony Animation Goes Diverse with Miles Morales as Spider-Man and Lin-Manuel Miranda Musical ‘Vivo’

2 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sony Pictures Animation, which has fallen on hard times in recent years, highlighted diversity and female empowerment as part of its comeback at Wednesday’s slate preview in Culver City. The biggest news was confirmation that Miles Morales, the mixed race web-slinging teen (African-American and Hispanic), will star in the untitled “Spider-Man” feature coming December 21, 2018.

Morales, created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli to succeed the late Peter Parker in the comics, has already become a TV animation staple on Disney Xd’s “Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors” (initially voiced by Donald Glover).

The animated “Spider-Man” marks a return to Spa for Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”), who directed “The Lego Movie” and are currently making the “Han Solo” standalone “Star Wars” feature.

In a pre-recorded video message from London, Lord said, “What inspired us the most is that anyone can wear the mask. »

‘City of Tiny Lights’ Trailer: Riz Ahmed Searches For Missing Girl in Pete Travis’ Modern Noir

4 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Riz Ahmed first made waves in Michael Winterbottom’s “The Road to Guantanamo,” but his Hollywood claim to fame was in last year’s HBO crime drama “The Night Of,” which earned him a Golden Globe and SAG nomination.

Now, after starring in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” Ahmed is returning to theaters in “City of Tiny Lights,” directed by “Dredd” helmer Pete Travis. Set in West London, the story is co-written by Patrick Neate and is based on his novel of the same name. Described as a “unique portrait of contemporary London as a teeming multicultural metropolis where nothing is as it seems,” it follows the actor as Tommy Akhtar, a London detective who goes searching for a missing girl after a high-class prostitute seeks his help.

The modern noir also co-stars “Penny Dreadful” actress Billie Piper as Shelley, Tommy’s long-lost love, as well as Cush Jumbo and Roshan Seth. »

Epic Star Wars Saga Trailer Will Get You Hyped for Episode 8

5 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a 10-year drought of Star Wars movies, fans were finally transported back to that same galaxy far, far away last year with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was followed by the spin-off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just last month. Both movies were huge hits at the box office, ushering in a new era of Star Wars fandom that will keep growing and growing. There will be plenty of fans who keep revisiting the original trilogy and the prequels, but instead of a marathon movie session, one enterprising YouTube user has broken down the story told through all eight movies, in one two-minute video.

YouTube user Dylan Trost took it upon himself to cut together footage from the first seven movies, plus a few bits from Rogue One, to succinctly break down these epic movies in two minutes and 17 seconds. While the footage isn't necessarily in chronological order, »

‘Curse Words #1′ Review

7 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Charles Soule | Art by Jordan Boyd, Ryan Browne | Variant Cover by Skottie Young | Published by Image Comics

Wow! Where do I begin with Curse Words. Another new number one from Image Comics and once again I was sat feeling pretty damn happy and excited (one might think I only review the books I like). Right… think about Jk Rowling sitting in a cafe absolutely off her face whilst writing Harry Potter and you are slightly close to Curse Words.

This book is big, bold and bloody beautiful. On paper Curse Words didn’t sound like my cup of tea, you know being wizards and whatnot. However upon flicking through and seeing Ryan Browne’s (God Hates Astronauts) art and how vibrantly striking it was… I had to read this. Sprinkle in some very strong Charles Soule (Daredevil, Death of Wolverine, Star Wars) dialogue and a cracking story of »

2017 Could Be the Year of the Rescued Movie Franchise

8 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In other words: sequels are back, baby!

Last year saw the Death of the Sequel. So many follow-ups to hit movies and new installments of popular franchises bombed hard. Many of them surprisingly. Outside of some extreme exclusions, such as Finding Dory and Captain America: Civil War, it was a bad year for familiar characters. Enough that I listed 15 properties I believe expired (in current form) in 2016.

Well, it’s a new year and a bright new day for film series. Looking ahead at the next 12 months (present included), there are more sequels, prequel-sequels, spinoffs, and other types of franchise continuations, and a lot of them look really good. Sure, last year we were excited for the Jack Reacher, Bourne, and even Independence Day sequels, but this time it’ll be different.

Inspired by a comment made by Joanna Robinson on last week’s A Storm of Spoilers podcast about this potentially being Marvel’s best year »

10 Actors Who Were Recreated With Special Effects In Movies

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following the tragic untimely death of Carrie Fisher, Lucasfilm now has a difficult time on their hands in terms of filling the gap she leaves in their plans for Star Wars: Episode IX. Given the fact that computer trickery was used to create a young Princess Leia in Rogue One, many thought that a similar method would be used in future movies. Surprisingly, however, Lucasfilm has confirmed that they will definitely not be completing Fisher’s scenes with CGI.

This is somewhat shocking as using special effects has always been the go-to method of resurrecting a sadly departed actor in the movies. Though some criticize the process for its dubious ethics and a general feeling of the uncanny valley, it has delivered a lot of success in many instances and for the most part, audiences seem to be alright with it.

And so, with the issue once again becoming »

Even though she routinely works with A-listers — Brad Pitt, Amy Adams and Tom Hardy among them — Nina Gold prefers to cast projects with unknowns. "It's so exciting watching them develop and have some fresh ideas," she says. And it's how she discovered Daisy Ridley and John Boyega for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens as well as pretty much everyone on Game of Thrones (she considers Emilia Clarke her most memorable recent discovery, as Clarke "came pretty fresh from drama school," she says).

EA Play Returns For A Second Year Running, Publisher Skipping E3 Once More

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Whatever its reasons are for doing so, EA has decided to once again skip E3 this year, preferring instead to continue showing off its new games as part of a near-concurrent event dubbed EA Play. Scheduled to take place from June 10-12, this year’s iteration of the exhibition will be held at the Palladium in Hollywood, California rather than the Club Nokia venue used in 2016. As was the case last time, the entirety of EA Play will be streamed live to the public through the usual channels which, the publisher says, promises to provide (via Polygon) “deeper looks into EA’s upcoming games and experiences.”

So, what exactly can we expect to see shown off over the event’s three-day duration? There is, of course, the obvious dedication to EA’s vast library of sports titles that will no doubt take up a chunk of »

‘T2 Trainspotting’ Exclusive: How the Screenplay Convinced Danny Boyle to Resurrect a Cult Classic — Watch

9 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Few movies leave the viewer as bewildered and blown away as Danny Boyle’s 1996 “Trainspotting.” That’s probably the reason it has evolved over the last decade from a cult classic into a right of passage for all coming-of-age cinephiles. You can’t go grow up loving movies these days and miss the mayhem that heroin addict Mark Renton gets into with his circle of friends (or that ceiling-crawling baby), which makes the prospects of the upcoming sequel all the more exciting and risky. Can a follow-up really capture the magnetic chaos of the original? The cast and crew are here to assure you, “yes.”

Listen to 1977 Star Wars Audience React to Death Star Explosion

22 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

On May 25, 1977, cinema as we know it was changed forever, when 20th Century Fox released a movie called Star Wars. Fans entering theaters that day didn't know this at the time, but they still came out in droves to see Star Wars on the big screen, as they would do in the years to come for The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. A few years back, a fan released an audio recording from inside a theater where Star Wars was playing in 1977, which was later synced up to footage from the film. The end result offers fans rare audio inside one of the first ever Star Wars screenings back in 1977.

On May 25, 2013, a YouTube user named William Forsche uploaded a video that contained five minutes and 23 seconds of audio that he recorded from inside a 1977 screening of the very first Star Wars movie, A New Hope. That »

Sundance: 13 Must-See Films That Have the Indie World Talking

23 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Sundance Film Festival has been the launching pad for some of the greatest indie films ever made. The likes of “Reservoir Dogs,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” and last year’s “Manchester by the Sea” all got their starts at the mountainside festival. That track record of finding new talent and fresh stories is what keeps studio executives and fan lovers flocking to Park City. So as Sundance gets ready to kick off on Thursday, hope springs anew.

There are a number of films that are already generating massive buzz, sight unseen. They range from Oscar contenders to crowd pleasing comedies to ripped-from-the-headlines documentaries. If they live up to the hype, all of them should score big paydays. Here’s a look at the films that are most likely to spark all-night bidding frenzies.

Great Job, Internet!: This breakneck supercut breaks down the many mysteries of Rogue One

18 January 2017 3:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Despite still being pretty good, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story upset a good chunk of fans by presenting a final product that didn’t really sync with what was in the trailers. Sure, footage is always getting cut as a film’s opening approaches, but why would it remain in the marketing? This new supercut from the website Looper helps explains not only the whys of that situation but also of several other behind-the-scenes curiosities.

In just six minutes, the video reveals the truth behind the film’s origins (a visual effects supervisor came up with the idea), its lack of an opening crawl (it would be redundant), and just how exactly it matched the dusty visual tone of A New Hope (thank Quentin Tarantino). Watch the whole thing below.

There’s also an extended section on K-2So actor Alan Tudyk’s work on the film, which included »

White Men Still Can't Jump

18 January 2017 1:07 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

In a world where reboots, remakes, and sequels never stop rising, the creators of Black-Ish are the minds behind the most recent remake coming soon to a theater near you.

Franchise films are tailor made to continue on and on and on. Well after they are wanted or needed. When a story runs dry, scrap it and start form the beginning. That seemed to be Hollywood's motto for quite awhile. Recently it's not just franchises that get that treatment, but any film that had an audience is acceptable to be remade brought to a millennial audience. No classic is safe. Therefore this week we have been given the most recent to join the ranks of reboots, and that is White Men Can't Jump.

That's right, the 1992 sports classic staring our recent inductee Star Wars universe Woody Harrelson, and the one and only Wesley Snipes is coming back to the big screen in a new way. »
