Mark Hamill on Star Wars Episode 7: 'It is an unexpected gift'

1 hour ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Star Wars actor Mark Hamill has described his return to the role of Luke Skywalker as an "unexpected gift".

The 62-year-old will appear in Jj Abrams's Star Wars Episode VII in 2015, having previously starred in the three original films from 1977 to 1983.

"It was certainly unexpected," he told BBC News. "I already had a beginning, middle and end. I never thought we'd come back.

"To go on to those sets that evoked so many memories. It is just astonishing."

Hamill explained that co-star Harrison Ford is recovering well after breaking his leg on set last month.

He recalled: "I was not on set. It was really terrible but I hear he's doing really well. It will take more than that to stop Harrison Ford."

Speaking about reuniting with Carrie Fisher and Ford for the new film, he said: "It was fantastic. Again - I thought even if they did a third trilogy, »

Mark Hamill has a contractually obligated beard, talks Episode VII. Internet explodes

4 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Mark Hamill was on the red carpet for Guardians Of The Galaxy premiere in London last night and the internet has exploded, predictably. Speaking to the BBC a bearded Luke Skywalker said that he thought the original Star Wars cast would never come back “We had a beginning, a middle and an end - I never thought we would come back."I still can't believe it's happening and to go on to those sets that evoke so many memories, is just astonishing.” Hamill goes onto say that it’s all about the “new generation” and that himself, Carrie Fisher and Han Solo are there to lend their support. And that the beard is “contractually obligated”. As for the story, that’s still a closely guarded secret but Jj Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan have done a great job writing it "It really has the spirit of that whole [Star Wars] universe, in other words, »

Review: 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' may be the most charming Marvel movie yet

10 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I've had several people ask me now if I think "Guardians Of The Galaxy" is the best of the Marvel movies so far. That's a hard question to answer, because I think there are many different things that I look for in a film, and none of the Marvel movies scratch the exact same itch. What's safe to say is that "Guardians Of The Galaxy" is the most charming Marvel movie so far. The primary ensemble (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel) is perhaps the most winning group of characters they've introduced in any of these movies so far, and while it's hard to figure out their dynamic when you just read their names together or even in clips, by the end of the film, this is a family that I would happily follow through any number of movies. I'm not sure I've ever seen »

New Star Wars Rebels Trailer Released at Sdcc

10 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Tonight featured the Star Wars Rebels panel at Sdcc 2014, in which members of the cast and crew were gathered together.  The panel offered up plenty of details, including a clip of the Inquisitor's spinning Lightsaber in action and even a really awesome new trailer for the show (different from what we saw earlier this week) that gives us a glimpse at some familiar characters!

A lot of the panel for Star Wars Rebels went into how the cast and crew worked together, designing the look of the show, inspiration for characters, etc.  While this is all very exciting to hear about (especially for big Star Wars fans like me), some of the coolest stuff came from the new footage on display, like this clip of the Inquisitor and his awesome Lightsaber in action: 

Other highlights from the panel include (from the official StarWars Liveblog):

‘Star Wars,’ ‘Superman’ Inspire New ‘Avengers’ Score

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

Composer Brian Tyler’s score for Marvel’s “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” will try to pay homage to the music of films like “Star Wars,” “Superman” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”

Those films “changed the game,” the composer said during the Musical Anatomy of a Superhero panel at Comic-Con on Thursday in San Diego. “It’s the template for ‘The Avengers’ coming up.”

That’s good news for fans of superhero movie music who have seen a bi-polar split between the serious sound of more recent Batman and Superman movies at DC and the triumphant and bombastic sounds of Marvel’s films.

“Marvel’s vibe is more old school, more heroic,” said Tyler Bates (“Guardians of the Galaxy”). “DC seems darker, post-apocalyptic.”

John Ottman, who recently scored “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” said the now-classic “Superman” and “Batman” scores by John Williams and Danny Elfman served as a “resurrection of the film score. »

Matthew McConaughey and Christopher Nolan surprise with 'Interstellar' trailer

11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego — After many rumors and wild media speculation, "Interstellar" director Christopher Nolan and star Matthew McConaughey surprised Comic-Con's Hall H crowd by making their first appearances at the pop culture festival. And once they hit the stage, it seemed somewhat likely that a new trailer would be screened for the audience. More intriguingly, the duo provided more details on how the movie came to be and what to expect this November. McConaughey, who had shockingly never made it to Comic-Con before, came out first to a wild standing ovation. He revealed he first met for Nolan for three hours without the movie ever being brought up or discussed. "I remember leaving thinking, what was that about," McConaughey recalled. "He liked meeting me and a week later I got the script. I liked it quite a lot and I was in." His character, Cooper, a pilot, engineer and widowed father of two children. »

The 75 refers to Batman’s 75th birthday, which was Wednesday. You can speculate all you want about that cowl, but we’re pretty sure we recognize the chin—as well as that look of intense sadness (as seen in the »

The #75 is likely a reference to Batman's 75th Anniversary, which is being celebrated at various events throughout the Con. Though, this does beat the photo he sent out yesterday.

The filmmaker sent out the following photo of Henry Cavill wielding a Star Wars light saber, with the hashtag #SuperJedi.

New Official Image Of Ben Affleck In 'Batman v. Superman' Plus Henry Cavill's Superman Wielding A Lightsaber

14 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Comic-Con launches today, which means lots and lots teases, and while it remains to be seen what Warner Bros. might unveil from "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice," a couple of pics circulating online are certainly getting fans talking. This afternoon, another look at Ben Affleck as Batman in the super sequel floated around, with photographer Clay Enos confirming via Twitter it was his pic. Why should we believe him? Well, according to his bio, he's worked with Zack Snyder on "Watchmen" and "Sucker Punch," taking character portraits and more, and it seems he's doing the same here. But leave it Snyder to take it to the next level. Last night, the director tweeted an image of Henry Cavill as Superman wielding a lightsaber (talk about knowing how to get fanboys wet). Was it just a goofy image from the director, or is he somehow suggest that he's now involved in the "Star Wars" franchise? »

New Batman Vs Superman Pic Features Hooded Superman Action

14 hours ago | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Yesterday, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" movie director, Zack Snyder, hit up his official Twitter account to drop this new photo of Henry Cavill, sporting a black hood over the Superman suit while holding a Star Wars sword, which seems pretty odd at first glance. However, the folks over at Batman News believes it might have something to do with the ultra secrecy of the film. They said, there's rumors floating about, claiming security is so tight on the set that Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) all have to wear big black robes when they’re on set and not filming a scene. So, they think that Zack's photo might have something with that plus a little Photoshop fun to include the Star Wars sword. Stay tuned. It's Comic-Con week, so who knows what else we'll see. »

Directed by James Gunn.

Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee PaceMichael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro and Peter Serafinowicz with the voice talents of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.

Synopsis:

In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan.

Guardians of the Galaxy was always going to have a hard time against the bigger boys of the Marvel Universe. They are a group that aren’t even c-level players, directed by a man with mostly TV credits and cult movies to his name and a leading cast with no big stars that the likes of Iron Man and Captain America have. But it’s a movie that has defied the odds. Every element has »
