Zelda Fitzgerald: Jennifer Lawrence (Serena, above) may star as Zelda Fitzgerald in a project that's under development by Ron Howard's production company. Best known for her troubled marriage to famed author F. Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby), Zelda Fitzgerald was also a writer and in recent years has been reappraised as a unique creative talent. British TV veteran Emma Frost wrote the script. [Deadline] Han Solo: Now that we know Donald Glover will be playing young Lando Calrissian opposite Alden Ehrenreich in the Han Solo stand-alone movie, naturally we wonder about the premise. A new rumor suggests it "will tell how Lando Calrissian lost the Millennium Falcon to Han." The official Star Wars site says young smuggler and gambler Lando lost the...

Cast your mind back to the formative years of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, before the film’s official title was even unveiled, and you’ll likely recall the level of secrecy that Disney maintained for J.J. Abrams’ franchise revival. Everything from plot details to individual character names were on strict lockdown, and even to this day, fans still don’t know the true identity of Fn-2187 Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley).
Online chatter would have you believe that Finn is actually the son of smooth-talking smuggler Lando Calrissian, but the jury’s still out regarding Ridley’s Force-sensitive heroine. Will we discover Rey’s parentage in Star Wars: Episode VIII? Honestly, we still don’t know for sure, but Daisy Ridley continues to drop hints that the sequel will herald the answers we so crave.

You know what? I feel that George Lucas is paradoxically not given enough credit for his contributions to pop-culture, while at the same time given way too much credit. Thing is, projects like Star Wars and Indiana Jones were definitely his babies, and he was a driving force in what makes them so great - from the stories, to the characters, to the tone, to the...

Like Star Wars, Indiana Jones is one of those few film franchises that’s impacted virtually every American has childhood in one way or another. Be it the fedora, the whip, Harrison Ford, or the spirit of high adventure that sticks in our minds, the series is a testament of the human imagination and universal storytelling.
It was with that in mind that in 2007, we were given Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, a film while not terribly horrible, had very little in common with the other films in terms of its strength. I personally came out of that film not angry, but underwhelmed. I didn't hate the film like most seemed to, but at no point in the film did I feel a sense of wonder or excitement even remotely approaching that of the trilogy.
For better or worse, we will be getting an Indiana Jones 5, »

It’s the burning question coming out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and one that’s spawned many theories since the release of the first chapter of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy last December: just who are the parents of Daisy Ridley’s Rey?
One such theory is that Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso – the protagonist of the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – could be Rey’s mother, seeing as she’s British… she’s female… and, erm… she’s in a Star Wars movie. However, speaking to Vulture, Ridley has pretty much discounted that theory, as well as heavily implying that we’ll discover Rey’s true lineage in Star Wars: Episode VIII next year.
“I mean, I think historically [the Jyn Erso theory] wouldn’t work, because she is … Darth Vader is there … so she would ultimately be my great-grandma,” said Ridley in an interview with Vulture. “No, she would be my grandma. »

So many goodies in the cinemas candy store this upcoming Awards Season! Oh,boy, oh boy.
It’s “Good Movie Season” when we get Hollywood heavy-hitters (both top popcorn entertainment and Oscar wannabees), and the best of the film festival circuit, most recently from Toronto. Many films will have an awards qualifying run in 2016 and open officially in 2017.
While we have not seen some of these (although we have seen some trailers), some movies are sure to disappoint. That said, here is Wamg’s list of highly-anticipated films, both big blockbuster entertainment and seriously meaty cinema.

Once Disney bought Lucasfilm from George Lucas, they rapidly began working on as many of their new intellectual property-haul, as possible. Since then, we've had a new Star Wars film (Force Awakens), several Star Wars Stories in the pipeline, and a 5th Indiana Jones movie. What do all these have in common, outside of the obvious?
None of these movies are getting any input from George Lucas.
In an interview with Collider.com, Screenwriter David Koepp pulled back the curtain on the writing process for Indiana Jones 5. When asked if George Lucas had been involved in the story process, Koepp replied,
“He’s not, to my knowledge. I’ve had no contact with him.”
That's a pretty shocking »

For as long as fans have known of Rey’s existence, we’ve been wondering about her parentage, and The Force Awakens did nothing to clear things up. There’s reference to a family that’s left her behind, and this being Star Wars, the odds seem good that she’ll turn out to be related to someone we know. But all […]

When Disney bought Lucasfilm from George Lucas, everyone kept a friendly door open for him to offer his input, but he politely declined and let others take the reins on “Star Wars.” But still sitting in the franchise stable is Indiana Jones, who will return to the big screen in 2019 in a new film directed by Steven Spielberg, with Harrison Ford cracking the whip, presumably for the last time.

George Lucas hasn't done a whole lot since selling Lucasfilm to Disney back in 2012. But when it was announced that Indiana Jones 5 was happening, it seemed like his old buddy Steven Spielberg would be pulling him in, since they have worked together on the other four Indiana Jones movies. It is starting to seem like that won't be the case this time around though.
In a recent interview with Collider, screenwriter David Koepp revealed that, to the best of his knowledge, George Lucas won't be involved. Being that David Koepp was hired to write the script for Indiana Jones 5, he would probably know if the Star Wars creator would be helping out in some way. Here is what he had to say when Collider asked about George Lucas' potential involvement.
"He's not, to my knowledge. I've had no contact with him."
Historically speaking, the Indiana Jones movies »
With the financial success of Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens (and for the most part, a pass from fans), the hot new Hollywood trend appears to be not asking George Lucas for any help. When asked by Collider whether the bearded one was coming on board for Indiana Jones 5, screenwriter David Koepp replied. “He’s not, to my knowledge. I’ve had no contact with him.”
Lucas, the man who wrote and directed American Graffiti and Star Wars as well as helped bring Industrial Light & Magic into the world, is also widely regarded these days as the guy who ruined Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and your childhood for good measure. Lucas was not involved at all with last December’s The Force Awakens, and it would appear he’s just fine leaving Jones behind as well. (With the previous four Indy adventures, Lucas would come up »

After the personal lesson I learnt last week with regards to distinguishing between ‘filler’ and what I just didn’t personally find that interesting, I went into this week’s episode with renewed interest and a much more open mind.
Perhaps it was karma. Perhaps it was balance in the force. Perhaps it was sheer coincidence. But this week I was given a fantastic episode that really had nothing to do with the current Original Trilogy time period. Its main achievement was to tie up a story arc from several decades ago. Filler? I don’t think so.
I’ve always wondered how much not seeing The Clone Wars beyond Season 1 (I know I know I’m a heathen and need stringing up) would damage my view of Rebels. As both are creations of Dave Filoni we should expect there to be crossover, »

It certainly seems like a no-brainer plot point, since it was officially confirmed that Donald Glover would be co-starring in the Han Solo movie as a young Lando Calrissian, but there is now a persistent rumour that a significant plot point in the film will be the story of how Lando came to lose the Millennium Falcon to Han Solo.
First things first – the casting of Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian is both perfect, and a work of genius. Not only does he have the acting talent, and the comic timing, but fans have long been waiting for the actor to be handed a role in one of the big franchises currently being constructed. Add to that the fact that the Han Solo movie is probably one of the most anticipated films in development, and we have a very exciting project on our hands.
Secondly, the reason that the Han »

Broadly speaking, as a tentpole film inches closer and closer to release, eager fans begin pouring over all the minute details, searching for clues and, frankly, any indication of how the finished product stacks up – you know, before the actual review embargo lifts. One such metric that is so often the topic of conversation ahead of launch is running time, with the underlying assumption being that any movie that clocks in at over two hours and 30 minutes really needs to justify its length.
Potential pacing issues aside, those preconceptions tend to be unfair in the sense that a lengthy running times doesn’t always equate to a better quality experience, or vice versa. Think of how The Wolf of Wall Street manages to keep you locked in for a bum-numbing three hours, and you’ll begin to realize »

Something that Kellvin and others have long predicted, that makes me groan, is that the young Han Solo movie will focus on how our favorite scoundrel won the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian. I'll reiterate later why the thought of that makes me cringe, but for now let me share why it would appear that this theory is actually true.
A very trusted writer, who works for the extremely reputable outlet The Hollywood Reporter, took to twitter to reveal what his sources have told him about the Young Han Solo movie:
A couple of sources tell me the #HanSolo spin-off will tell how Lando Calrissien lost the Millennium Falcon to Han.

Lucasfilm announced today that Donald Glover, an acclaimed actor, award-winning writer, and Grammy-nominated artist, will be playing the part of Lando Calrissian in the still-untitled Han Solo Star Wars film, helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Glover will join Alden Ehrenreich — previously cast as Han Solo — in bringing two iconic Star Wars characters back to the big screen, but at a time in their lives previously unexplored. This new film depicts Lando in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld — years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to [ Read More ]
