Screen Gems has released some new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies images. Directed by Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) and based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the story follows Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) as they try to navigate societal pressures of the landed gentry and fend off hoards of zombies. Speaking to EW, Steers explained how he was approaching the film more as a spin on Jane Austen than a B-movie. “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” says Steers. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” [caption id="attachment_481321" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Screen Gems[/caption] That’s a difficult line to walk.

If Dice and EA’s Star Wars Battlefront is the pixelated appetiser in November, then J.J. Abrams’ hotly-anticipated The Force Awakens is irrefutably the main course the following month. Yes, December is shaping to be a magical period for long-time fans of a galaxy far, far away, though given that there is a thirty-year interlude between the events that occur in Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, there’s still plenty of stories to be told in this most beloved universe.
Bundled under Disney’s Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens – a shotgun blast of novels, comics and Ya fiction all releasing in December – is Star Wars: Shattered Empire, and today we bring you a synopsis for the upcoming prequel comic book that sheds some light on the hitherto-mysterious plot.

The reports also say that several of the Star Destroyer sets and models have been brought over from The Force Awakens to be re-used on Rogue One.

Barely 24 hours have passed since EA and Dice kicked off its closed alpha for Star Wars Battlefront and already a flurry of information and gameplay clips have found their way online. Inevitably, both parties have been scouring the Internet in an attempt to curb the leak – particularly gameplay footage, which gets yanked from YouTube within seconds of begin uploaded.
That doesn’t necessarily mean that every inkling of information has been locked behind closed doors, though, with a fresh batch of high-res screens emerging earlier today. Showcasing the beautiful yet arid vistas of Tatooine, the images themselves are a marvel to behold, and underline just how loyal Dice is remaining to the source material in its hotly-anticipated title.

In recent weeks, Star Wars rumors have been spread around the internet about the possibility of us at some point in the future seeing a trilogy of movies centered specifically around the adventures of the great Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Once again, fact-based dramas will dominate awards buzz. There are at least 14 with scheduled dates, and another three possibilities for this year. Six of these earn the highest possible praise: People from rival studios like them.
That roster includes “Black Mass,” starring Johnny Depp as Boston mob kingpin Whitey Bulger; “Concussion,” about the NFL’s efforts to deny the repercussions of players’ repeated concussions; “Spotlight,” with Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams as the Boston Globe reporters who uncovered child abuse in the Catholic Church; “Trumbo,” about Dalton Trumbo and the House Un-American Activities Committee; “Truth,” the Dan Rather-George W. Bush scandal pic; and “The Walk,” about high-wire artist Philippe Petit, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

If the sequel was a late 20th century phenomenon, ushered into being thanks to the likes of James Bond, The Godfather and Planet Of The Apes, then the soft reboot is a peculiar product of the 21st.
Unlike a conventional remake or reboot, which often abandon characters, plots and settings in favour of an entirely new approach, the soft reboot is less drastic. Jj Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek movie is a prime example; it casts new actors in the roles of the Original Series’ famous roster of characters - Chris Pine replacing William Shatner as Kirk, Zachary Quinto replacing Leonard Nimoy as Spock, and so on - and sends them »
