Benicio Del Toro All But Confirms He's the Next 'Star Wars' Villain

just now | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Benicio Del Toro is in very early discussions to play a villainous role in Star Wars: Episode VIII, according to The Wrap. No other details were reported, and no official confirmation has been made. Update: While speaking to the Spanish site Rac1.org, Benicio Del Toro all but confirmed he was starring as some kind of villain in the follow-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, currently going by Star Wars Episode VIII. "Star Wars is coming up, we will see how that turns out. I think we start shooting in March," he says adding, “Ehhh, the thing is, they don’t let me talk too much about it. I’m like the villain. But we’ll see.” This lines up with what we already knew -- that he was in discussions to take on a villainous role in the...

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Bb-8 Sphero Toy Is Amazing

52 minutes ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During yesterday's landmark unboxing event that unveiled the new toys for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Sphero finally showed-off their consumer version of the popular ball droid Bb-8. Today, the company released a new two-minute video, which breaks down some of the features of this toy, which will surely be one of the hottest items for sale during Force Friday. While an official price hasn't been revealed yet, Entertainment Weekly reports that Bb-8 is expected to retail for approximately $150. Here's what Sphero had to say about Bb-8 on their official blog.

"Meet Bb-8 - the app-enabled Droid whose movements and personality are as authentic as they are advanced. Bb-8 is your very own Astromech Droid, and his traits begin to shine the second he wakes up. He is playful, personable, and true to the Star Wars&#8482 galaxy. Bb-8 has something unlike any other robot - an adaptive personality that changes as you play. »

Feast Your Eyes On Over 90 Images Of Ralph McQuarrie's 'Star Wars' Concept Art

1 hour ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Though the first time I saw the "Star Wars" trilogy was decades ago, the imagery certainly still resonates in my head, even while I watch (and rewatch, and rewatch…) the trailers for the globally anticipated "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Though George Lucas is credited as the creator and driving force behind the trilogy, it’s the essential illustrations of conceptual designer Ralph McQuarrie that give strength to the fictional universe (and the Force). Read More: Watch: New Teaser Trailer And Images For ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Commissioned by Lucas, McQuarrie worked on all three of the original films, not to mention that he came up with the idea for Darth Vader to wear a breathing mask (so he could breathe in space, naturally) and the designs for Chewbacca, C3PO, and R2D2. Take a look at some of these paramount illustrations below, and find out why »

Benicio Del Toro Confirms He's Filming Star Wars VIII in March

1 hour ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

After proclaiming his confidence in being a part of Star Wars: Episode VIII last month, Benicio Del Toro has pretty much confirmed his involvement with the film now, even going so far as to reveal when he starts filming.  Come inside to see his quotes!

Back in July, rumors about Benicio Del Toro portraying a new villain in Rian Johnson's Star Wars: Episode VIII popped up.  Then he played coy about it in an interview last month, and now this month, he's gone ahead and confirmed those rumors.  Either Disney/Lfl has told him it's okay to say something, or he just doesn't care.  Either way, we're finally getting something.  

Del Toro was doing an interview with the Spanish publication Rac1, in which they asked him about what he has coming up on his schedule for future projects, to which he replied (translation initially stems from StarWars7News):

'Star Wars 7' Poster Assembles the First Order Villains

1 hour ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The great unboxing of 2015 is finally over! It was 18 hours of straight up toy madness in anticipation of Force Friday, which kicks off across the country tonight, with a tidal wave of Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise set to drain your pocket book. Now that we've seen the toys, we can get back to all the movie marketing materials, starting with a very cool international poster. It features the First Order Troops, lead by the new trio of villains, Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma and General Hux.

Though, it must be noted, some are saying this is a fan-made poster. If that's the case, it's an exceptional job. It appears to give us a new look at Domhnall Gleeson's General Hux, one we haven't seen before. And one that is quite hard to fake. So, even if this has been cobbled together by some lonely basement dwelling future poster maker, »

Benicio Del Toro Confirms Star Wars: Episode VIII Villain Role

3 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  Actor Benicio Del Toro just confirmed to Spanish outlet  www.rac1.org that he will indeed play the villain in Star Wars: Episode VIII and that filming starts in March.  The news comes after Del Toro previously told reporters last month that "he thinks" he'll take the role. The only other actor mentioned for the role was Joaquin Phoenix.  However, Phoenix recently gave an interview where he stated that the reason he turns down blockbuster roles is because 75% of the script is, "a description of some asteroid going through space."  Perhaps Joaquin made this comment in reference to the Star Wars script he just read? Rian Johnson is writing and directing the sequel to J.J. Abrams' The Force Awakens.  Joining Del Toro will be Donnie Yen, and Oscar Isaac - who will be reprising his role as Poe Dameron.  Casting is underway for a new female lead and the »

'The secrecy has been ludicrous': Star Wars actor Anthony Daniels on the new film and his life as C-3Po

3 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The first time the actor saw C-3Po, he felt kinship – and went on to play the android in all six Star Wars movies. Ahead of The Force Awakens, he talks about being censured by Disney, working with Jj Abrams and playing the worrywart robot once more

At the end of the hour that I spend with the actor Anthony Daniels, he reaches unprompted into his bag and removes a severed head. The pale gold exterior is tarnished and distressed. The static dots of its pupils stare out from behind tiny grilles. The mouth, an oblong slit like a tiny letterbox, conveys alarm. It is, unmistakably, C-3Po, the finicky, worrywart droid whom Daniels has played in all six Star Wars films, and plays again in the latest instalment, The Force Awakens, which is due out in December.

Fans’ expectations for the new film are stratospheric for several reasons. The »
