Rounding up yesterday’s big news stories…
Wonder Woman Villain Revealed
Warner Bros. has been doing a good job of keeping Wonder Woman’s big villain under wraps, but following news this weekend that the character (who shall not be named here, if you want to avoid spoilers) will be portrayed by David Thewlis, and now we’ve had our very first look at the big bad, albeit in action figure form; check it out here.
The Predator Isn’T For Pussies
Filming on Shane Black’s The Predator kicked off production yesterday, with Black taking to Twitter to confirm that he’s aiming for an R-rating as “PG-13 is for pussies”. Black also shared a first cast photo featuring Sterling K. Brown (The People v. O.J. Simpson), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele) and Jacob Tremblay (Room). Take a look at the photo here. »

Josh Gad and Daisy Ridley are currently in production on the upcoming remake of The Murder on the Orient Express. So, Gad decided to use his friendship (and proximity) to the Star Wars star to try and pry out a few coveted spoilers about Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.
The efforts began in earnest in late January when he invited Ridley into his trailer on the pretense of discussing their film, and then ambushed her with Star Wars questions.

"I had an important question to ask you, I'm so sorry. I meant to call you last night, but it's about today's scene," Gad asks off-screen as he films his co-star on his phone. "Um, who are the last Jedi? Like, is it one [Jedi]? Or is it more than one?"

With Disney's beloved Star Wars spin-off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story winding down at the box office, many fans are wondering when the Blu-ray and DVD announcement will be made. While we still haven't heard anything official from Disney and LucasFilm yet, that announcement may be coming soon, with new reports claiming that this blockbuster will debut on Blu-ray and DVD April 4. There has even been some early artwork that has leaked, but it is not the final artwork and may be changed when the Blu-ray and DVD is officially released.
Star Wars News Net reports that there have been a number of hints that Rogue One may be released on Blu-ray and DVD April 4. The first clue was the announcement of Titan's book titled Rogue One: A Star Wars Story The Official Mission Debrief, which debuts on March 28 and was said to "coincide with the movie's home release. »
Our confidence in this Rogue One: A Star Wars Story release date is virtually 100 percent at this point. In addition to now multiple retailers prematurely publishing the date, Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released on April 5th, 2016 with the Digital HD release coming the Friday before. Expect the Rogue One Digital HD release on Friday, March 31st.
Disney has yet to jump on the 4K bandwagon so don't expect Star Wars: Rogue One on 4K Uhd Blu-ray. However, a Blu-ray 3D version is a safe bet so expect that to be announced alongside the Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD versions in the near future.

Daisy Ridley may have been new to movie stardom circa Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but by now she’s an old pro at dodging questions. Watch as shrugs that she doesn’t think Rey’s parentage is really “so important,” or coolly deflects further inquiries with “curiosity is a wonderful thing.” Unfortunately for her, though, fans and journalists aren’t the […]

This week’s episode of Star Wars Rebels had a lot of mythology and introduced some massive changes to the DisneyXD animated series. Let’s take a look at some of executive producer Dave Filoni‘s comments on this big change, including the implications of possible returning characters and the big question: Will we get a Star Wars […]

Josh Gad’s latest attempt to learn spoilers about the new “Star Wars” film is the best one yet. Even with the help of a few famous faces, like Chris Pratt (who would rather talk about the huge movie franchises he is a part of instead of talking “Star Wars”), Bryce Dallas Howard, Penelope Cruz, and […] »

Gad – who is currently filming the Murder on the Orient Express remake with Ridley – has been peppering the British actress with questions about Star Wars: Episode VIII, even enlisting some other famous faces to help out.
In his first attempt – recorded and released on social media – Ridley came by Gad’s trailer clad in her robe.

Over the weekend we brought a Hasbro toy gallery to you from the New York Toy Fair that took place. The toy company is releasing lines of Star Wars toys, Transformers toys, and Marvel franchise toys that should be coming out some time in the spring. But it gets better. Star Wars has expanded their 40th anniversary figures with retro Kenner-style packaging for their 6″ Black Series action figures. According to Nerd Approved: The first wave of releases will include Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and R2-D2 followed by Chewbacca, C-3Po, the “Death Squad Commander” (Kenner’s original

Now that we know the title of the next “Star Wars” movie, everyone wants to know what actually happens in “Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.” And who better to ask than Daisy Ridley, one of the new faces of the revitalized sci-fi franchise? That, at least, seems to be the mentality of Josh Gad, who’s on a mission to get answers from the actress. Watch his latest attempt below.
“Please don’t say you’re setting me up this time,” she says in the video, which looks to have been shot on Gad’s phone; that he used portrait mode, rather than landscape, suggests the actor would be on the dark side of the Force if he were ever to appear in “Star Wars.” Gad assures her he isn’t tricking her again, which is of course a lie. »

Disney’s takeover of the Star Wars has seen bigger roles for women and people of colour, in a sophisticated cinematic universe that looks more like the one we live in
It’s pretty obvious that George Lucas, for all his statements to the contrary, does not particularly enjoy watching from the sidelines while other film-makers lead Star Wars into a brave new era. In the wake of The Force Awakens taking the global box office by storm in December 2015, the saga’s creator unwisely quipped to Us talk show host Charlie Rose that he had sold his “kids … to the white slavers that take these things” – referring to Disney’s October 2012 purchase of all rights to the long-running space opera – and criticised Jj Abrams’s film as a “retro” effort. It felt like a low blow from a film-maker whose own efforts to reinvent Star Wars, the execrable prequel trilogy, »

Josh Gad is currently busy filming Murder on the Orient Express. It just so happens that the movie co-stars Daisy Ridley, who had her breakout in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will be reprising her role as Rey in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Over the last month or so, Josh Gad has been posting videos to his Instagram in which he has been pestering Daisy Ridley for spoilers. Today, he has posted yet another video and truly outdone himself, having enlisted the help of quite a few very famous people to ask her questions she most definitely isn't allowed to answer.
In the Instagram video, Josh Gad starts off by apologizing to Daisy Ridley for what has been going on over the course of the last month or so and she looks like she really isn't having it. He then promises that he has »
It’s already February, and we have few to no details regarding the next entry of the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. For comparison, by November of 2014, we’d already seen a teaser of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which eventually released on December 18, 2015. In short, we’re about four months past that moment. Admittedly, it’s all a bit expected. The Force Awakens was the first flick of the franchise since 2005, and a continuation of a story fans have been waiting for for thirty years. By comparison, The Last Jedi is merely the next chapter, and as such, Disney and Lucasfilm need to save their cash monies for a date closer to its release.
But that hasn’t stopped eager fans like us from trying to pull details from every little scrap of information the studio releases — just look at all the theories that have »

I can imagine that these days, Daisy Ridley spends most of her time dodging questions about Star Wars. Every interviewer is hoping to get that tiny morsel of exclusive information that will reveal just a little bit more about her character or the upcoming film(s). Luckily for her, she's Very good at not giving anything away! That's not going to stop Josh Gad, however, who has lulled Daisy Ridley into a... Read More »

The running gag from Josh Gad and Daisy Ridley on trying to extract secret Star Wars information from Ridley reached its apex earlier this month when Gad recruited Dame and legendary actress Judy Dench to grill Ridley with Star Wars related questions. Honestly we’re not 100% sure how long Gad can keep this up but since “The Last Jedi” isn’t set to release until December, we’ve got plenty of time for more material. Either Josh Gad didn’t get all the answers he wanted, or he wasn’t allowed to hear them, as he amped up the interrogation this week by bringing

In case you didn’t realize it, this year will mark the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. Surely the excitement will be much higher towards the end of the year when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters, but there’s a lot of time between then and now. Fans need something to hold them over, and […]

The original 1996 movie, based on Irvine Welch's 1993 novel, defined a drug generation in the UK. With an electrifying soundtrack, a memorable group of characters and filled with moments that contributed to the pop culture of the cinema world, Trainspotting was definitely one of a kind. Not to mention a talent of a cast: Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Ewen Bremne and Kelly Macdonald.
Well, 20 years later... the original crew is back as Renton (McGregor) returns to his home town after "choosing life" and abandoning his misfit friends. In honour of T2: Trainspotting, we have compiled our own little list of long awaited sequels.

With the news that Disney is going to be blowing us away with a Star Wars theme park and that there will also be an Avatar theme park in our future, it got me thinking. “What other movies or TV shows would make a great theme park setting?” While there are plenty of attractions and rides out there from particular movies that already exist, I chose 10 shows and movies that I felt could have their own standalone parks. The worlds are big enough. There are enough locations and characters, and it would be pretty cool to be immersed in
