The sci-fi worlds Ridley Scott, ‘The Martian’ writers dream of calling home

39 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Movies can transport us to sci-fi worlds with immerse viewing experiences. But when the lights come up at the end of the movie, it’s back to the real world. There are some futures that sound like sci-fi now that might be reality soon though. And there are other less likely sci-fi scenarios that we’ll never get to really experience (sorry, everyone with Avatar blues — we’re not going to Pandora). Mars, though, is within reach. But it’s not Mars that the creative minds behind The Martian dream of visiting — especially not Andy Weir, author of the book on which the successful Matt Damon-starring movie is based. At an event today on the 20th Century Fox lot featuring a panel of Weir, director Ridley Scott, and screenwriter Drew Goddard, moderator Adam Savage (MythBusters) brought up the possibility of the The Martian filmmakers traveling to Mars themselves, Weir »

'Star Wars' Producers Face Criminal Charges Over Harrison Ford Accident

1 hour ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted in theaters under an umbrella of stellar reviews and much love from long-time fans. But it didn't arrive without incident. And perhaps the most troubling aspect of the whole production was when actor Harrison Ford, who reprises his role as iconic space smuggler Han Solo, broke his leg on set. The production team behind The Force Awakens is now facing criminal charges over the ordeal.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens wasn't very far into its production at Pinewood Studios when news broke that Harrison Ford had one of the Millennium Falcon's hydraulic doors come crashing down on his ankle. The incident put the 73 year-old actor out of commission for weeks, delaying his scenes. This caused quite a few headaches for the production team. But it doesn't sound like the trouble is over.

Star Wars Production Company to Be Prosecuted Over Harrison Ford's Accident on Set

5 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Harrison Ford broke his leg on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in June 2014.

But on Thursday, the U.K.'s Health and Safety Executive (Hse) informed Foodles Production Ltd. (a subsidiary of Disney) that it would be prosecuted for the incident.

Force Awakens fever is still gripping the film industry two months after the release of the seventh Star Wars entry, and the world of cinema-centric books is just as Snoke-obsessed.

Dk’s Star Wars visual dictionaries are, quite simply, must-owns. (Even the three prequel editions are fascinating.) And the Force Awakens Visual Dictionary might be the best yet. Author Pablo Hidalgo goes deep, providing everything you wanted to know about Jakku (but were afraid to ask), offering insight on briefly seen characters like Max Von Sydow’s Lor San Tekka, and breaking down exactly why the “crossguard blades” of Kylo Ren’s lightsaber are a necessity.

New Lego Star Wars TV Series Coming To Disney Xd

Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures will introduce "all-new heroes and villains" to the galaxy far, far away, but since Darth Vader and The Emperor also feature on the poster below it's safe to assume we'll see a few more familiar faces pop up too. Obviously this one will be aimed towards the younglings, but the synopsis does sound fairly interesting.

Chewbacca and Captain Phasma Deleted Scenes Revealed in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits Blu-ray and DVD this spring, we've already been assured by director J.J. Abrams that we're not getting an extended director's cut. But we will get to finally see some of the deleted scenes from the blockbuster sequel. While we've been told about a few of these moments before, editors Mary Jo Markey & Maryann Brando have now offered even more insight into what we might see when Star Wars 7 hits home in April.

Many believed that Gwendoline Christie's Captain Phasma would be the breakout character, and become a fan favorite on par with Boba Fett. But once the movie debuted this past December, it was obvious her screen time had been scaled way back. While the First Order Stormtrooper leader will have a much more substantial role in Star Wars: Episode VIII, we'll probably get to see more of her in just a few short months. »
