Star Wars: Ranking The Lightsaber Battles From Worst To Best

1 hour ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Episode VII: The Force Awakens is only months away from its release (just saying that gives this fanboy chills) and the rumor mill has raged with what the galaxy far far away holds in store for us.

Expectations were already set high with Jj Abrams at the helm, but when the teaser trailer was released excitement hit hyperspace. Surprisingly, a moment of controversy arose towards the middle when a dark figure (presumably the movie’s primary villain) drew a lightsaber with a very… unique design.

Opinions warred between fans, some in favor, others abhorrent, of what is now called the cross-guard lightsaber. The irony here is that it’s not the first time Star Wars injected a new lightsaber – Darth Maul’s double-blade – and most swords have cross-guards in reality.

The teaser ended on a black screen, only the ghostly sound of a lightsaber powering up before fading into silence. »

The Next Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Is Attached to Avengers: Age Of Ultron

7 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When will we see a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer? Mark May 1st on your calendars, if you haven’t already. We’re hearing that the new trailer for J.J. Abrams’ highly anticipated sequel is definitely attached to every copy of Avengers: Age of Ultron that will play in theaters, giving it a guaranteed massive audience. Of course, Disney owns both Marvel and Lucasfilm so this is was an obvious place for the next trailer to play (and at the beginning of the summer movie season, no less), but if there were any doubts, those can safely be put to rest. [caption id="attachment_374028" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Disney[/caption] The new trailer will first premiere at the Star Wars Celebration convention, which runs from April 16th to 19th, and Age of Ultron’s international release starts rolling out on April 22nd, so the question is when Disney/Lucasfilm will decide to »

Video Games That Should Be Movies

11 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Annoyed by the poor quality of existing video game movies, we decided to take the matter into our own hands and come up with our own ideas. This is a list of what we came up with.

Earlier this month, we showed you that there are a lot of video game-based movies on their way to theaters. This surely will become a trend that will continue for the next few years. There are countless properties available to use as inspiration, and therefore, it's only a matter of time before someone figures out how to make a great video game movie. Until that time comes, we have to wait patiently. In order to occupy our minds, we asked our contributors to pick a video game that they think would make a great movie and then to create a pitch for that movie. The below list is what we came up with. »

'Spectre' Producers on Blofeld, Idris Elba as 007, and Who's Singing the Theme Song

13 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Over the weekend, we were in Mexico City on the set of the next James Bond outing "Spectre." This film marks the fourth time that Daniel Craig has inhabited the role of 007 and the second collaboration between Craig and his "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes. During the last phase of our trip, we were offered a special treat: a roundtable sit down with the longtime shepherds of the James Bond franchise: producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. Broccoli is, of course, the daughter of 007 producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli and is Wilson's step brother (Wilson wrote several of the 007 movies, including "The Living Daylights," which also partially took place in Mexico).

The trailer for "Spectre" having premiered just hours before, we had a lot of questions for the producing team (and surprisingly, they only refused to answer some). In our conversation, they teased the connection between "Skyfall" and "Spectre" (and to »

BBC drama boss to join Jj Abrams' Bad Robot

15 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

BBC drama controller Ben Stephenson is to join Jj Abrams indie Bad Robot to lead its television division.

Screen’s sister publication Broadcast revealed in February that Stephenson was in talks with the Los Angeles-based company.

His move ends a 10-year association with the BBC.

A date for his departure is yet to be confirmed, although he is expected to relocate to California at some point later this year. A hunt for his successor will begin immediately.

Stephenson said he was ready for a new challenge and described Star Wars director Abrams as “one of the world’s greatest writers, directors and producers”.

He added: “The BBC is a remarkable institution - there just isn’t a more creative, stimulating organisation to work for in the UK. Whilst it’s a massive wrench to leave, I cannot wait to begin a new adventure in La with Jj.”

Abrams said: “His love of great TV, his passion »

Celebrating cinema's 15 less famous killer robots

15 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Never mind The Terminator and Ed-209, what about Eve, Hector or Warbeast? Here's a pick of 15 less famous killer robots from the movies...

"They say Zapp Brannigan single-handedly saved the Octillion system from a horde of rampaging killbots!" enthused Leela in classic the Futurama episode, Love's Labour's Lost In Space.

It was, reflected the alcoholic, cigar-smoking robot Bender, "A grim day for Robotkind", before adding as an afterthought, "Eh, but we can always build more killbots."

Killer robots are a longstanding staple of science fiction cinema, and if we were to compile the list of the best and most celebrated, it would probably read pretty much like everyone else's - The Terminator, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Sentinels from X-Men: Days Of Future Past would all get a mention.

But what about the less famous killer robots from film history - the ones that have been largely eclipsed by »

Batman V Superman: Ranking The Character Designs From Worst To Best

16 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’s release is a little under a year away, but Zack Snyder’s movie is already getting treated to a similar level of feverous speculation as 2015’s biggest hitters. And, even with the start of a third Star Wars trilogy and a sequel to the third biggest movie of all time on the near horizon, it’s really not hard to see why people are getting excited over seeing Ben Affleck get the s**t beaten out of him by Henry Cavill.

Of course, Dawn Of Justice isn’t only seeing DC’s two big hitters duking it out on the big screen for the first time, but also laying the foundations for Warner Bros. attempt to ape Marvel at the shared universe game. On top of the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel (as well as their expansive supporting »

Stars sent their well wishes to the actor after news of the crash broke.
