The Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer May Arrive Thanksgiving Week

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

We’ve been hearing quite a few rumblings lately about the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer debuting sometime fairly soon, but it turns out the teaser might be arriving much earlier than anticipated.  Like, next week earlier.  Director J.J. Abrams and co. wrapped production on the upcoming Episode VII a few weeks ago and the film doesn’t open until theaters for over a year, but this is one of the most anticipated movies in recent memory, so it’s no surprise that Disney and Lucasfilm are keen on giving a brief first look to fans a bit early.  If a new report is to be believed, the first footage from the Star Wars sequel will arrive Thanksgiving week in the form of a Force Awakens teaser trailer.  More after the jump. Word of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer release date first surfaced over on reddit. »

Starry Eyes’: The feel disturbed movie of the year

This film is at its very core a success story. A very demented, gory, horrifying and darkly comical success story – one with tinges of satanic cult horror wrapped in psychological terror. The plot follows a young aspiring actress, Sarah, as she is called back to audition for a horror film that is being produced by a mysterious production company that pushes her to her limits – a dark exchange for fame and fortune… click here to read the article. 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I’ is all prologue

In a previous review of the second instalment of The Hunger Games series for this website, I expressed some dismay that Catching Fire didn’t really have a conclusion to speak of, with its cliffhanger ending reminding me less of The Empire Strikes Back and more of The Matrix Reloaded orPirates of »

14 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While he is done with with Star Wars, that doesn’t mean we won’t be getting some work done by George Lucas in 2015.

Disney and LucasFilms released the first trailer for the animated feature, Strange Magic, which was written by Lucas. The film is inspired by William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Tale and features the voice work of Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Sam Palladio, Meredith Anne Bull, Alfred Molina, Elijah Kelley, Bob Einstein, and Peter Stormare.

While taking a little from Shakespeare, the film follows goblins, elves, fairies and imps embark on a musical adventure in hopes of getting a powerful potion.

‘Guardians’ Director James Gunn: Shared Movie Universe ‘Business Model Is Flawed’

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

If you’re worried about the recent influx and potential resulting unwieldiness of shared movie universes, you’re not alone. “Guardians of the Galaxy” writer-director James Gunn is just as concerned.

Gunn took to Facebook to voice his skepticism about studios “trying to grow franchises from non-existent films or middling successes.”

“Listen, I love big (a–) shared universes in movies, as well as huge franchises,” he wrote in a Facebook post titled “Carts Before Horses & Hollywood’s New Love of Shared Universes.” “But I’m a little worried about the numerous shared universes being planned by the studios, without having a strong base film to grow from — or in some cases, No base film to grow from.”

The director implies that franchises like “Star Wars,” “Iron Man,” “The Dark Knight” and even “Transformers” and “Twilight” are in the clear because they were conceived as single films and only grew into movie series following audience demand. »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer reportedly arriving on Friday

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past we’ve heard several rumours about the impending trailer for Disney and Lucasfilm’s hugely-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens; there’s been the obligatory alleged trailer description, along with reports that it will make its debut in cinemas with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies on December 17th. However, it seems we may not have to wait that long…

According to a rumour on Reddit, Disney is looking to launch the first trailer this Friday with a special even that will see it shown before every movie in 100 U.S. theaters this weekend, starting on Friday. Apparently said theaters have been told that Big Hero 6 has to be shown at the earliest showtime on each of those days, with the studio no doubt looking to boost the takings of its animated Marvel adaptation by capitalising on the Star Wars fever.

'Star Wars 7' Trailer to Premiere Next Weekend in 100 Theaters?

18 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If we're to buy into the hype, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is poised to have the biggest teaser trailer of all time. Every day, we hear a new rumor about its impending premiere, though nothing has been confirmed by Disney or LucasFilm. While many believe the (very short) trailer will hit soon, no one really knows when or where it will debut. A new rumor claims that it is opening next weekend in 100 theaters nationwide.

Again, this is nothing more than a rumor. The hard truth is that we may or may not even get a trailer this year. Though, its looking more and more likely that we will. While Disney was reportedly going to premiere their Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer in theaters only, attached to prints of The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, that was soon debunked. At least according to sources around the Internet. »

Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer Coming Next Week?

22 November 2014 12:14 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A day doesn’t go by without some new Star Wars Episode VII rumour exploding all over the internet. The rumour mill is grinding extra hard though with the trailer. First it was rumoured to be attached to The Hobbit: Battle Of The Five Armies. Then that rumour turned into something else entirely, where Disney was going to show it in 100 movie houses attaching it to every movie. And now the latest rumour is that it could arrive just in time for Thanksgiving! Might be the best excuse you’ll get to pull yourself away from some black Friday deals for 90 seconds!! »

'Strange Magic' Trailer: Here's Your First Look at a Weird New Movie from George Lucas

21 November 2014 7:45 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

On November 11, 2014 the world got its first look at Strange Magic, a new animated movie conceived and produced by George Lucas. Normally a new Lucasfilm entry would be cause for celebration, but this reveal was odd because it was the first exposure for a movie coming out barely two months later on January 23, 2015. That's usually not a very good sign, but we lovers of Star Wars and Indiana Jones and Willow kept hope that maybe this would be another Lucas gem. Well today the first trailer for Strange Magic hit and now the very delayed reveal makes a bit more sense. It's not that this looks outright bad, it just looks like it's all over the map. Is it a hidden-fantasy-world action movie like Epic? Is it a pop-culture-filled comedy with musical numbers like Shrek? Who...

Thorin's Regal Armor in The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

21 November 2014 5:18 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is less than a month away, and I eagerly await its 45 minute end battle sequence. The UK based Empire Magazine has released the cover for their January issue online. The cover features the 6' 2" Richard Armitage looking very short as Thorin. He's wearing "Regal Armour" (UK spelling of armor) that's gold, geometric, and 100% hardened dwarven badass.

Peter Jackson finally ends his 17 year long odyssey adapting J.R.R. Tolkien's works for the screen. Other than The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun (what's with the long titles?), which is already in post production, Jackson has not announced what he's doing next. I vote Star Wars: The Old Republic, but that's just my wishful thinking.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will be in theaters December 17th (USA). »

Alberto Iglesias’s Exodus: Gods And Kings Soundtrack Available Digitally on Dec 9; CD Dec 16

21 November 2014 2:28 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

For the upcoming epic action-adventure Exodus: Gods And Kings, acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator) has recruited three-time Academy Award nominee Alberto Iglesias to compose the film score.  The soundtrack will be from Sony Classical digitally on December 9 and on CD on December 16.

20th Century Fox releases Exodus: Gods And Kings in theaters everywhere on December 12.

When it came to the music for his visually stunning movie, Ridley Scott has opted as much for delicate arrangements as orchestral bombast – a noteworthy decision considering the truly monumental production. Strings, choir, featured soloists and soulful vocals complement Iglesias’ trademark composing style in this breathtaking score.

Iglesias provides the biblical material a historic yet modern feel. Given the challenge of maintaining the upper hand in such a large project, the highly versatile Iglesias skillfully masters the gap between subtle emotion and martial brutality.

X-men: A Hint As To Who Might Be Up For 'Apocalypse' In The Next Movie

21 November 2014 1:19 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The latest episode of Meet The Movie Press (which is hosted by Mark Reilly from Schmoes Know.com) featured a chat with Steven Weintraub, Aka Frosty, from Collider.com. The pair discuss everything from Suicide Squad to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the entire show is well worth a listen. But around the 32:00 mark, The Wrap's Jeff Sneider calls in with a scoop...kinda! If you recall, it was Jeff that broke the names of the six young actors being looked at for Jean Grey and Scott Summers in Bryan Singer's follow up to X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and although he hasn't got any new info in regards to that, he has heard something about who might be in the running to play the villainous Apocalypse. He won't say any names right out, but he does drop a hint about one: "We heard him say »
