Those darn limeys don't observe Labor Day, and it's for the best since they've got some new Star Wars: Episode VII casting. According to the BBC, Miltos Yerolemou, who played swordsman Syrio Forel on Game of Thrones, has joined the upcoming Star Wars sequel in an undisclosed role, although it will probably be a minor one. Yerolemou is probably best known to American audiences for his performance on Game of Thrones, but he's also played other roles that involve sword fighting, so don't be surprised if you see him wielding a lightsaber. Yeromelou is the second Game of Thrones alum to join Episode VII following the casting of Gwendoline Christie back in June, although Lucasfilm declined to comment on his casting. In case you've never seen Yerolemou on Game of Thrones or just want a refresher, hit the jump. Star Wars: Episode VII opens December 18, 2015, and also stars Mark Hamill, »

Miltos Yerolemou had a memorable role in the first season of Game of Thrones as Arya Stark's mentor, and now BBC News reports that the actor has joined the cast of Star Wars Episode VII. He taught Arya how to properly wield a blade and is in fact an accomplished swordsman away from Westeros as well, so it would be a huge surprise if those skills aren't put to good use in the J.J. Abrams helmed follow-up to Return of the Jedi. However, the site cautions that his role won't be a major one (though that doesn't necessarily mean we won't see him using a lightsaber at some point...). He of course joins fellow Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie, and just because his role in this instalment is a small one, there's also nothing to say that he won't return for a bigger part in Rian Johnson's Star Wars Episode IX. »
If you’re good with a sword and appeared on Game of Thrones, apparently there’s a fair shot you can end up in a galaxy far, far away. Months after Thrones star Gwendoline Christie joined the cast of J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars Episode VII, she’s now joined by another cast member. Miltos Yerolemou, who played Syrio Forel, the season one […]

The fourth and final Star Wars Rebels short film has debuted, offering new insight into the character of Ezra, an orphan who may be the Rebellion's greatest hope. In Not What You Think, Ezra finds a downed Tie fighter on the plains of Lothal. The young rebel opens the ship's hatch, pretending to help the ungrateful Imperial pilot, and leaves with a few souvenirs. Check out this latest footage, and then get ready to return to that galaxy far, far away later this fall.
Scheduled to premiere in October 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, Star Wars Rebels will be followed by a series on Disney Xd channels around the world.
Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. »
Star Wars Rebels – the upcoming Disney Xd animated series – takes place during the reign of Emperor Palpatine between Episode III (Revenge of the Sith) and Episode IV (A New Hope) of the live-action Star Wars movie trilogies. Disney and Lucasfilm have released a collection of 3-minute clips that introduce the main heroes on the show – and the fourth (and final) one, titled “Not What You Think”, is now online. You can watch it, above.
Ezra Bridger (voiced by Taylor Gray) steps into the spotlight for the newest Star Wars Rebels clip; part Luke Skywalker, part Disney’s Aladdin, the character is poised to serve as the series’ protagonist. As illustrated by the clip above, Ezra has a distinct independent streak; he might have little love for the Galactic Empire, but he starts out the series as someone who’s less concerned about ...

Hollywood didn’t have much to celebrate this Labor Day. The holiday is traditionally a slow one at the box office, and this one was no exception, providing one final death rattle on a summer that was largely D.O.A.
In its fifth week of release, “Guardians of the Galaxy” prevailed over two modestly budgeted newcomers, “November Man” and “As Above, So Below,” to hold on to the top spot on domestic box office charts with $22.2 million over the four-day holiday. Its domestic total now stands at $280 million and the film will likely hit $300 million stateside by the time it ends its run.
“‘Guardians’ is just rolling right now,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “It’s unconventional, it shatters expectations and there’s a real story to it.”
For the major studios, back to school time represents a reprieve. The summer box office »

For your Labor Day viewing enjoyment, Disney Xd has released a new Star Wars Rebels short. The animated series will take place about 14 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith and centers on the fledgling rebellion as the Empire hunts down the last of the Jedi Knights to secure rule of the galaxy. This new short gives us an introduction to Ezra Bridger (Taylor Gray), who shares the same irreverent attitude of Sabine and Zeb. I'm curious to see how the show will develop and differentiate these characters, and how their playful jabs at the Empire will stack up when faced with powerful foes like Agent Kallus and the Inquisitor. Hit the jump to check out the new Star Wars Rebels short, "Not What You Think". Star Wars Rebels premieres on Disney Xd this October, and also features the voices of Freddie Prinze Jr., David Oyelowo, Jason Isaacs, »

It’s easy to think you know an actor through the characters that they play, or even to assume you know something about an actor by the sheer fact that they’re an actor. Particularly when someone is often type-cast, it can sometimes be hard to swallow when you find out something that changes how you see a big name. For instance, when a huge star like Tom Cruise became an insane scientologist, or when you find out that awesome badass action-star Vin Diesel has been an avid Dungeons and Dragons fan for 20 years, or even the knowledge that Pam and Jim aren’t a couple in real life (weep), can change your perspective on an actor you took for granted as their character(s).
Sometimes our favourite actors’ rise to fame has been shaky, unintended, or even baffling, such as Danny Trejo’s movement from drug counselor to world-class badass. »

The editorial staff of the official "Star Wars" website, StarWars.com, have decided to rank the top ten one-on-one fights in the first six "Star Wars" movies. Each of the lightsaber battles was ranked on "inventiveness, choreography and emotional impact".
What will surprise people will be the top choice. The Darth Maul fight in "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" is about the only sequence from that film commonly lauded, and it came in at number one. That it beat out the more iconic battle between Luke and Darth Vader in "The Empire Strikes Back" in second place will certainly ruffle some feathers.
Meanwhile the final battle between Luke and Vader in "Return of the Jedi" came in fifth, with the two battles at the end of "Revenge of the Sith" (Obi-Wan vs. Anakin, Yoda vs. Palpatine) coming in third and fourth.

Doctor Who, Season 8, Episode 2, “Into the Dalek”
Directed by Ben Wheatley

Dalek stories are tricky. As monsters, they’re one trick ponies, but they’re also iconic and massively popular, so they’re trotted out every season or so for the Doctor to face*. They’re the Doctor’s oldest enemy (the First Doctor faced off with them in his second story), and frankly, the series ran out of new ways to use them a very long time ago. In season one of NuWho, Robert Shearman revitalized the creatures with his fantastic script for “Dalek”, but since season two, their appearances have mostly been a series of diminishing returns, »

As popular as Star Wars is, I'm not sure there's a franchise out there that has dealt with more controversy and backlash. There are certainly those out there who unconditionally love every frame of every movie in the two trilogies, but there are also those who not only endlessly rant about the prequels, but also the Special Editions of the original trilogy that were made in the late 1990s. The latter were created after George Lucas set out to try and capture what he described as his original vision for the movies, using the help of more advanced CGI, but many die-hards felt that all of the extras and changes did little more than clutter up the screen and take away the original impact (not to mention the rage over Greedo shooting first). Because of all this, years have been spent begging for high-definition versions of the original theatrical releases »
Are these really the 10 best fights in the Star Wars universe? To a certain extent, we have to trust the source. The staff at StarWars.com decided that they would debate the Top 10 battles in the first six Star Wars movies, editing them into the montage above. They are ranked on inventiveness, choreography and emotional impact. Watch the list below, and then we will discuss. Did you make it all the way to No. 1? Did you see how they chose a battle from Star Wars: Episode I . The Phantom Menace?! Listen, I get that Darth Maul is an incredibly cool visual villain, with his double-sided lightsaber and that peaceful way he pauses in between battling two Jedi masters in Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson). It.s a solid battle sequence, and one of the only thrilling sequences in the deadly-dull The Phantom Menace. And this »

I love “Doctor Who.” Ever since discovering it in my Netflix queue years ago (Christopher Eccleston is still my Doctor) this silly, sentimental show about a mad man in a box has enthralled me. But I — like many fans — worried that lately the wheels had been coming off. Too many cliches and consequence-free actions and terrible treatment of women. Not to mention an infinite number of reset buttons. But from the looks of tonight’s episode, “Into The Dalek,” it truly feels like writers heard the fans…and they’re beginning to patch up the holes this season. ******************* We begin where we’ve begun before. The Daleks are in pursuit of a spaceship, intent on exterminating all those inside. Flying through an asteroid field, the human pilot desperately tries to keep the ship from crashing while also trying to keep her co-pilot conscious. In the end she fails, and the »

The Daleks return and do battle with Peter Capaldi in Into The Dalek. Here's our spoiler-filled review...

8.2 Into The Dalek
"Am I a good man?"
No episode of Doctor Who is easy. Dalek stories? They carry a heavier burden of responsibility than most. As iconic a part of the show as the Tardis, these are the creatures that are supposed to be - but rarely are - the Doctor's deadliest foe. They can blitz away Cybermen without a second thought. They have weapons that can kill in the time it takes to admire a fiftysomething man's eyebrows. They make the BBC lots of cash through toy sales. And yet it's rarely a Dalek episode that's called out as a series highlight (Remembrance Of The Daleks the most recent towering exception, Dalek running it close).
Into The Dalek stakes one hell of a claim, »
As a kid, the cantina scene in Star Wars was mind-blowing, because that single scene contained more aliens than I had ever seen in an entire movie. The scope of the world opened up for me as I imagined all the planets these aliens came from.
Chanoy got their hands on seven minutes of what looks like the rough assembly of the cantina scene. The quality is pretty bad and the sound cuts out several times, but as a fan, I found it super interesting to watch. We’ve also got a few photos and preproduction art via Movies.com.
Star Wars changed the world on May 25, 1977 (USA). »

What a summer at the movies! The galaxy got guarded. The future days went past, like some sort of extinct age. The planet of the apes stopped rising and started dawning. Our stars had a fault. And also: Lucy!
Hollywood had a rough season at the box office in summer 2014, with overall box-office receipts falling precipitously from last year’s flurry of mega-grossers. Going into this weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy, the highest-grossing film at the summer box-office, has earned about $256 million–which would have made it the fifth highest-grossing movie of summer 2013.
