Sorry this is so many days late! I promised we'd play along this year. And by play along I don't mind dress up in drag while typing but you can't see me so you'll never know but weekly posts on the best reality show on television (the Emmys sure are missing the boat float with their exceedingly conventional and stale nominations). Unfortunately "The Big Opening Part 2" which brough us another set of 7 queens, was much less cinematic in its shout-outs, so I made one up myself: Darienne Lake and June Squibb have the same designer. Pass it on!
Oh. my. god. Revelation as I typed: June Squibb would make the best Guest Judge on this show. Make that happen, Ru.
Not that no queens were compared to queens of the screen. Milk was told to "flash that Lauren Hutton smile" and Trinity K Bonet decided to go with 'something between »

Carrie Fisher isn’t one to keep her mouth shut about anything. Throughout her career, she’s spoken candidly about her struggles with addiction, body image and all the ugliness that goes along with the mega-level of stardom Fisher reached with her most iconic role as Princess Leia in Star Wars.
With a new Star Wars film in the works and the original cast heavily rumored to be returning, it only follows suit that Fisher wouldn’t keep quiet about that either. Never shy, the actress has been quoted three times already saying she and her original trilogy co-stars – Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford – are coming back for Star Wars: Episode VII.

Terry Gilliam is making a comeback this year. In July, the ex-Monty Python animator will reunite with his Flying Circus colleagues for an O2 residency. Before then, though, Gilliam returns to dystopian sci-fi with The Zero Theorem, a film whose patchwork aesthetic can't help but recall his 1985 masterpiece, Brazil.
Apt really, considering how prescient his visionary fable has become. Never mind the imminent World Cup. Gilliam's Brazil – a land where the authorities wield information as a weapon and where dreams are shackled by callous austerity – is even more pertinent to life in 2014.
What is Brazil? It's the story of clerk Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce), whose diligence in resolving a messy, fatal paperwork trail brings him into contact with Jill (Kim Greist) – the girl who haunts his dreams of combat with a giant baby-faced samurai, and who may or may not be a terrorist.
Where is Brazil? "Somewhere in the 20th century, »
Episode 18 of the Hey You Geeks podcast is a grab bag of film trailers, the Oscars, upcoming video games and in true Hey You Geeks fashion, lots of Star Wars digressions. We’re talking about the new trailers for Guardians of the Galaxy, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Transformers: Age of Extinction and Annie, yes Annie. We also discuss the Oscars and which actor we thought was most deserving of the big bald guy this year. To our surprise, Rocksteady released a trailer for a new Arkham game this week, so of course we discuss that development. Finally, our talk about the final season of Star Wars: Clone Wars coming to Netflix evolves into a discussion about Adam Driver being cast as a villain in the new Star Wars film. It just wouldn’t be Hey You Geeks if our conversations didn’t lead into a Star Wars debate. »

Of the three main stars of the original Star Wars trilogy, it has been Carrie Fisher who has been the most publicly wishy-washy on the subject of Star Wars Episode VII. On more than a couple occasions the actress has suggested that she is going to be a part of the production but still there hasn't been any kind of confirmation from the studio one way or the other. Today we have yet another similar story, though this time the news is coming from Australian comedian Jim Jefferies. Discovered by SlashFilm, Jefferies recently appeared on Sirius Xm.s Opie and Anthony Show, and at one point the conversation turned towards Fisher, who will be appearing in an episode of Jefferies' Fxx television series Legit. Talking about working with the actress, the comedian made some kind of rough comments about her appearance and then seemingly confirmed that Fisher will soon be »
While Disney and LucasFilm have still not confirmed a single cast member for Star Wars: Episode VII aside from R2D2, it's a pretty safe bet that Carrie Fisher will return to reprise her role as Princess Leia, as she has confirmed this time and again. She will be seen very shortly in an episode of Legit, playing comedian Jim Jeffries' agent. While appearing on Sirius Xm's Opie and Anthony Show, Jeffries talked about working with the actress and confirmed that Carrie Fisher will be in London for 6 months working on the J.J. Abrams directed sequel starting in April. He also made a couple of jokes at her expense.
"She's a funny lady, man. She'll be smoking cigarettes outside and as soon as she gets inside, she's straight on to the vapor. She's had some fucking hard partying in her life, I tell ya....She said to me, she »
Disney and Lucasfilm have still not announced who’ll be starring in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII, but information continues to creep out there. Besides the Adam Driver business, one member of the original cast who has no problem saying she’s returning for Star Wars 7 is Carrie Fisher. Time and time again Fisher has let […]

It's a story of two crime-fighting partners, one of whom might, after years of service, become consumed by the darkness. Sound familiar? That's the basic premise of "True Detective." But it also is a handy synopsis of the relationship between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader in the "Star Wars" saga. Once we realized that, it only made sense to wonder what "True Detective" might look like if it took place in a galaxy far, far ...

It seems to be a Hollywood tradition – one studio develops a high-profile project, so another studio puts a rival version into production. Think, apocalyptic dramas Deep Impact and Armageddon, or upcoming biblical epics Noah and Exodus. The sudden determination to deliver a new adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is no exception, and has thrust two separate versions into production. The difference is, only one can now boast Idris Elba in the role of diabolical tiger, Shere Khan.
The rival projects reside at Warner Brothers and Disney, but Uncle Walt’s version is currently in the lead. With accomplished director Jon Favreau (Iron Man) at the helm, their Jungle Book, a mix of live-action and visual effects, has assembled a formidable creative team to achieve the desired vision. The behind-the-scenes talent is being supervised by Academy Award winning VFX guru Rob Legato (Avatar, Titanic) and includes production designers »

Today Netflix unveils the final 13 unaired episodes of The Clone Wars animated series, along with all five previous seasons, marking the first Star Wars title to be released on the streaming service. Production on the Emmy-winning Cartoon Network series was shut down by Disney after the company took control of the Star Wars empire last year. The company then promptly ordered a promising new animated series, Star Wars Rebels, which is coming this fall to Disney Xd. »

Exclusive: Idris Elba is in final negotiations to perform the role and provide the voice of the killer tiger Shere Khan in Disney’s live-action take on The Jungle Book. Directed by Jon Favreau, the film is a mix of live action and VFX that is being overseen by Rob Legato, whose VFX credits include Avatar, The Wolf Of Wall Street, Hugo and Titanic, the latter two of which won him Oscars. The studio has bolstered its creative team by setting as its production designers Alex McDowell (Man Of Steel, Rise Of The Guardians) and Chris Glass heading a team of concept artists that includes Michael Kutsche (Alice, Oz, Maleficent), Iain McCaig (Star Wars), and Justin Sweet (Chronicles Of Narnia). The story team is headed by Iron Man‘s David Lowery, who’s working around the clock with seven full-time illustrators, with Legacy Effects participating in creature design and rigging. »

"Community" and "Arrested Development" may seem like a far cry from the souped-up blockbuster action of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but for the sibling directing team of Mark and Anthony Russo, there's less of a difference that you might think. The duo -- best known for directing and producing those aforementioned TV comedies -- called the shots on the upcoming "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." The Russos discussed the Marvel sequel on a visit to the film's L.A. set last fall, where they were directing a piece of a big action scene featuring Cap (Chris Evans) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie). As comic book fans themselves, getting the call from Marvel exec Kevin Feige was a dream come true. "Winter Soldier" departs from 2011's "Captain America" The First Avenger" in several significant ways, especially its darker tone, inspired by '70s political thrillers. After directing the George Clooney indie comedy »

Andy Naylor reviews South Park: The Stick of Truth...
Cartoon spin-off games, much like their movie counterparts, meet with mixed success. More often than not you get a poor tie-in that is designed to cash in on the popularity of the source material – see last year’s awful Family Guy game for a prime example of this. These games are usually written and made by, at best, mediocre writers and developers. On very rare occasions, something of great quality will surprised us all and fill us with glee - The Simpson’s games from 2007 was one of these surprising instances. However, even that strayed somewhat from the show. As enjoyable, and true to the source material as it was, it wasn’t quite the cartoon. It was a 3-D platformer set in The Simpson’s universe. Today, South Park: The Stick of Truth is released and you may »

While everyone eagerly awaits Star Wars: Episode VII, fans have a new reason to get excited. Roger Christian's long lost fantasy short film Black Angel will become available for the first time ever this year, possibly through iTunes or Netflix and may be part of a DVD re-release of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back.
What's so special about this particular short? While it doesn't tie directly into the Star Wars mythology, the 1980 film was shown in theaters with the original May 21, 1980 release of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back in select localations. It was the directorial debut of Star Wars art director Roger Christian and was thought to have disappeared forever, until the film was rediscovered in December 2011.
There are few directors who polarise audiences quite like Wes Anderson. While there are many who love and admire the work of the American auteur, there are also those who aren’t quite as enamoured by his whimsical, creative approach to filmmaking. However his latest production, The Grand Budapest Hotel, may just a defining piece for him, as though certainly faithful to his cinematic fervour, and full of the quirks and nuances that make him so popular – it’s an emotionally driven piece, and perhaps somewhat more tender than we’ve ever seen before.
When in Berlin, where this picture opened the prestigious film festival, we had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with Anderson to discuss his latest piece. Just upon walking into the room, instantly you see the man behind the camera, as there’s a sophistication and elegance to his well-kept appearance, matching that of the hand-crafted universe that he creates. »
