Crafting a Modern Mythology: The Truth About Mad Max

1 hour ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

When Mad Max returned to the big screen earlier this year, it impressed fans and critics the world over, but left many wondering where it fits in with the other films, continuity-wise.  With the blu-ray hitting shelves, I'm here to let you know...it doesn't matter.  Mad Max is more than a man, he's a mythological hero. 

Movie buffs these days seem absolutely obsessed with film continuity these days.  Perhaps it's the climate of the industry as of late.  In a world where just about every major movie studio has a "universe" of films all interconnected (initially started by Marvel), I could see why some people have a tough time wrapping their minds around the concept of films able to stand apart from one another.  

Recently, it seems those kinds of movies are few and far between, but in those instances fans reach (Hard) to make connections where none seem to be. »

Watch: Supercut Highlights The Visual Symmetry In The First 6 'Star Wars' Films

4 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opens this Christmas, it will undoubtedly be a surreal experience for George Lucas. It will be the first live-action “Star Wars” film released without Lucas at the helm. As we wait to see what J.J. Abrams does with the first installment of the franchise's new era this December, let’s look backwards and marvel at what Lucas was able to accomplish.

Will Ferrell & Mark Wahlberg in Trailer for 'Daddy's Home' Comedy

4 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If you're interested, Paramount has debuted a trailer for Daddy's Home, a comedy starring Will Ferrell as a new step dad married to Linda Cardellini, and Mark Wahlberg as the "real father". The other day while updating our Release Schedule, I noticed this film was listed for Christmas Day, but there's not much talk about it. Well, here is the trailer, and you'll know why there's not much to say. It looks really bad. Plus, I don't know about everyone else, but this Christmas I'm planning to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens a few more times. If not Tarantino's The Hateful Eight. Anyway, if you're curious to see what Daddy's Home is all about - here you go. Featuring Thomas Haden Church, Paul Scheer and Alessandra Ambrosio. Enjoy.

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

See Full Gallery Here

Continuing on its promotional campaign for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney has today debuted a fresh batch of artwork for J.J. Abrams’ upcoming sequel that highlights the film’s Elite Stormtrooper and a Speeder mid-flight.

Essentially, the concept art is in effort to drum up excitement for this weekend’s Force Friday, which will herald a whole host of toys and merchandise for Episode VII. In fact, today’s trio of stills arrive mere days after promotional material drew attention to both sides of the Force, including stylized action shots of Daisy Ridley’s Rey, Chewbacca and the loveable droid that is Bb-8.

Don’t let the title fool you, though, Force Friday is primed to be a weekend event in all but name, with the first wave of toys expected to be formally revealed – or, should we say, »

Boba Fett escapes his fate in stunning, high-quality 'Star Wars' fan trailer

5 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Rumors are still flying around Boba Fett getting his own stand-alone Star Wars movie. The “Anthology” is tentatively set for 2020, though no other details have been released. The most prevalent theory is the film will be an origin story for the galaxy’s most infamous bounty hunter. To me, that angle would be an odd retread as Fett has appeared in the cartoon “The Clone Wars” as a child. Director Eric Demeusy seems to agree. In his recent short film “Star Wars: The New Republic Anthology,” Demeusy envisions a different tale. One where Fett emerges* from the Sarlacc pit after three decades, only to discover the galaxy has changed significantly. Even as a fan trailer, the amount of skill and technical effort is on point! *As C-3P0 points out, the Sarlacc digests victims slowly over 1000 years. This indicates that somehow the creature is also keeping its food alive. Star »

Oscar Isaac Likens X-Men: Apocalypse Role To Playing God

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

Oscar Isaac may have shown HBO and its legions of viewers a hero in Paul Haggis’ compelling political drama, but for 20th Century Fox’s high-profile juggernaut X-Men: Apocalypse, the star is very much situated on the other end of the moral spectrum.

That’s because he’ll be embodying the titular villain – a glowering, 5,000 year old mutant primed to unleash Old Testament levels of destruction upon man and mutantkind alike. Awakening from his prolonged slumber, Isaac’s menace assembles the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to complete his world-shaking plan, and in a recent interview with The Playlist, the actor touched upon what it’s like to portray a character who holds absolute power.

Now that principal photography has wrapped up on X-Men: Apocalypse, we’re beginning to learn much more about the story and the film’s impressive ensemble, and here’s what »

The Force Awakens: A Marketing Masterpiece

5 hours ago | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

In a world where the internet is hit with information dumps, whether they be interviews, convention panels or six-minute trailers, on a regular basis, we have become used to knowing vast chunks, if not the entirety of plots before ever seeing the most hotly anticipated blockbusters. Avengers: Age of Ultron made more sense in the multiple trailers I saw on YouTube than it did in theaters.

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens, however, we have been given very little. What trailers we have seen show mere snapshots, with almost nothing that allows the audience to tether them together. Any information we have has been carefully selected and told to us. Recently we saw a few seconds of new footage showcasing John Boyega wielding a light saber. Everybody went insane. Meanwhile, we learned the “lineup” of the upcoming Marvel Civil War, and nobody could care less. Disney has us on »

Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks to Leave Disney, Possibly for Universal

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

DreamWorks will not renew its current distribution deal with the Walt Disney Co., which expires in August, sources have confirmed to Variety.

The Disney deal dates back to 2009, but since then Disney has acquired both Marvel and Lucasfilm, underlining its focus on branded, tentpole films.

Disney will release two more DreamWorks films, both directed by Steven Spielberg, before the deal expires: Tom Hanks’ Cold War thriller “Bridge of Spies” on Oct. 16 and “The Bfg” on July 1.

The Bfg” is a co-production with Disney that will be Spielberg’s first Disney-branded film. All of the previous films from DreamWorks have been released under Disney’s Touchstone banner.

Sources also indicate that DreamWorks is most likely to wind up with a distribution deal at Universal while emphasizing that no agreement has been reached. They noted that Spielberg has kept his offices on the lot, even after the Disney deal was struck, and »

Promo Art Featuring Star Wars: The Force Awakens' 'Elite Stormtroopers' Surfaces

6 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Some stores are already selling Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise, and that means that certain toys and artwork is being revealed sooner than Lucasfilm would probably like. The latest features the reveal of the Elite Stormtroopers, a group who will apparently feature heavily in the movie as part of Chrysler's marketing deal with Disney. The First Order looks set to be quite different to the Empire of old, and all of these new Stormtrooper factions should give The Force Awakens a fresh feel...and shift a sh*t ton of merchandise too of course. What do you think? Starring original cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and franchise newcomers, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o and Max von SydowStar Wars Episode VII is set to be released on December 18th, »

Two of Your Favorite TV Actresses Might Be in the New Star Wars

6 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Big news: The Wrap has got the scoop on the actresses on the short list for the new Star Wars movie! Wait — didn't we just do this a few months ago? Well, that was for Star Wars: Rogue One, and this is for Star Wars: Episode VIII, but you're forgiven for the confusion: Both short lists include Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany, who lost out to Felicity Jones for Rogue One, and is back again to be considered alongside the likes of Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl's Olivia Cooke for a major role in Episode VIII. All three have reportedly been scheduled for "chemistry reads" with John Boyega, which sounds like it's maybe a love-interest part, but who knows? And if Maslany doesn't get this one, no worries: There are Star Wars films scheduled for every year until 2019, which »

Why Joaquin Phoenix Has Zero Interest In Ever Doing A Marvel Or Star Wars Movie

7 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Inherent Vice star and self-proclaimed Oscar hater Joaquin Phoenix was considered for the lead role in Marvel.s Doctor Strange. By now you hopefully know that the part ultimately went to Benedict Cumberbatch, and Phoenix is totally fine with that. In fact, he says he.d rather stay away from all of those Marvel movies, and even the upcoming slate of Star Wars films.  Speaking with Time Out New York for a recent interview, the actor said,  I.ve flirted with several of those films, having meetings and getting close, but ultimately it never felt like they.d really be fulfilling. There were too many requirements that went against my instincts for character. I.ve been spoiled. I.ve never had to make those compromises. I.ve not met a director yet with one of those films where we go through the script, they say: .You know what, fuck this »
