It's been a hot minute since we've actually heard any good rumors about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as the Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off gears up for production this spring. While it was earlier reported that Disney and Lucasfilm may be courting Michael Fassbender to play Boba Fett in that sci-fi solo adventure for the bounty hunter (not confirmed), we're now hearing that J.J. Abrams may have landed a more sinister presence for his own film, which kick starts a new trilogy. While Jabba the Hutt will have been dead for nearly thirty years at the start of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it looks like other members of the Hutt syndicated crime family will actually be involved in the storyline.
The Hutts are a family of gangster who reside on Tatooine, and they have ties that reach all the way back to Anakin Skywalker, »
Kim Nguyen (“War Witch”) is directing the movie, which is a Canadian co-production that features the involvement of Montreal-based company Max Films. Production is scheduled to begin in mid-March as soon as Maslany wraps “Orphan Black.”

We're only a month into 2015 but already the competition for the year's biggest movie looks like a two-horse race. Will it be Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the second assembly of Marvel's all-star superhero team? Or will it be Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the hugely anticipated third coming of George Lucas's space gospel? Both movies are expected to break a billion dollars at the box office, but one major player doesn't much care which one wins the race: the Walt Disney Company. Technically, both movies are theirs. »
It may sound weird now, but when George Lucas made "Star Wars," he was taking a big risk. In Park City for the Sundance Film Festival yesterday, Lucas joined Robert Redford and moderator Leonard Maltin for a panel discussion entitled "Visions of Independence." While Lucas' name may be synonymous with commercial success, he made a number of salient points that reflected his independent past. Here are some of the highlights. Check out Matlin's recollections from moderating the event here. Lucas was initially opposed to commercial cinema.Initially inspired by the experimental film scene in San Francisco during the late 1960s, Lucas had no interest in making big studio projects. "I wasn’t really into dramatic filmmaking at all," he said. "We hated the establishment. I didn’t like the studios. I was very much against all that." Some of that skepticism is still with him today. "I grew up »

Billy Dee Williams made his return to the galaxy far, far away recently in an episode of Star Wars Rebels, in which he reprised his role of Lando Calrissian much to the delight of Star Wars fans. While some have assumed Lando could pop up in future episodes of the animated series, I got the scoop directly from the man himself. You haven't seen the last of Lando.
A few weeks ago, the crew from Star Wars Rebels met up with smooth-talking Lando Calrissian (in the episode titled "Idiot's Array") and cool things happened. It was a great episode and has been the case with all their cameos on the show so far, was integrated nicely and fit within the world they've established. Easily the most exciting thing was hearing the man himself, Billy Dee Williams reprise his iconic character for the series.
The man hasn't missed a beat and »

Disney and LucasFilm's Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off is starting to come together, although we still don't have any confirmed plot details at this time. Last week, a report surfaced that the story will follow both Han Solo and the bounty hunter Boba Fett, with the production gearing up to start shooting in Mexico. Today, we have a new report from iKwiz, which reveals that Michael Fassbender is the front runner to play the bounty hunter Boba Fett. It isn't known if the actor is in negotiations, or if a formal offer has been presented to the actor at this time.
The story is reportedly set before Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, and it's being speculated that the plot focuses on the relationships between Han Solo, Boba Fett and other criminals, which could be The Hutts. While we don't have any further details on the story, »
Jurassic World: A new photo from Jurassic World gives a peek -- through smoke -- at a new dinosaur that will be featured in the movie, rumbling toward theaters on June 12. The beast is identified as Indominus Rex, described as "the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World." Concept art for its paddock is presented below. We may get a closer look when the next trailer debuts on Sunday during the Super Bowl. [Screen Crush] Star Wars: We know Star Wars: The Force Awakens will open in theaters on December 18, to be followed by the first spin-off movie on December 16, 2016.

With E3 coming in June and a release window set for this holiday season, the marketing for Star Wars: Battlefront has yet to even start. EA•Dice gave IGN an exclusive interview with Design Director Niklas Fegraeus and a piece of concept art that features two Rebels attempting to flank an At-st.
The Star Wars universe is vast and many of those locations have been on display in previous incarnations of the Battlefront series. Fegraeus talks a bit about how we might see those locations adapted:
“The scale of our maps and modes offer a great variety. We have actually made the decision to specifically tailor certain maps to certain game modes and what we get from that is not only incredibly varied scales, but also gameplay that will allow players to live out some of their most memorable Star Wars battle fantasies.”
Battlefront will use the advanced Frostbite »

Since 1977, fans have dreamt of visiting the world of Star Wars, of setting foot on the sands of Tatooine, the snow of Hoth or swamps of Dagobah. 99.9% of fans never get that chance, as production on the movies is so secretive. But a select few get to visit the set during filming. And for […]

Ever since Disney announced that it was planning to release standalone "spinoff" Star Wars films in between the releases of the upcoming Sequel Trilogy films beginning this December with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, speculation has run rampant. While it.s generally believed that signature Star Wars names like Han Solo, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Boba Fett would be the focus of some of these side projects, the latest rumors seem to point to women stepping into the spotlight. With the names of actresses like Rooney Mara, Felicity Jones and Tatiana Maslany coming up as possible leads for one of the standalone films, we thought it would be as a good a time as any to come up with 5 female Star Wars characters on which the first film could focus. We're using only in-movie characters, since the Expanded Universe was essentially torpedoed by the new Star Wars overlords »
Almost a couple years ago, back in the spring of 2013, before Star Wars: The Force Awakens even had a title and the film was still slated rumored for a summer release in 2015, Disney revealed at CinemaCon that they were planning on releasing a new Star Wars film each year, alternating between episodes in the new trilogy and standalone films in between them. Now here we are in 2015, and Star Wars: Episode VII isn't arriving until December 18th this year, followed next year by the first standalone film (which is starting to find a cast already) from director Gareth Edwards. Now we have further confirmation for future plans. Disney CEO Bob Iger just addressed shareholders recently and talked about the progress of Star Wars and their plans for the future. Get Your Geek On (via SlashFilm) has the quote from Iger: "As one of the few people allowed to visit the set during filming… »

We’ve been relishing the chance to be in Park City again this year for Sundance, despite the fact that for the first time in the festival’s history no movies are being screened on 35mm. That said, some already incredible movies have received awards and much deserved buzz. Most notable among them is Don Hertzfeld’s animated World of Tomorrow, which won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Short Film.
But we’ve also been watching the buyers, because for those of us who couldn’t make it out to Utah this year, we have an invested interest in actually seeing these movies some day. Here’s a list of some of the more notable deals that were struck. Indiewire has a full list of films and buyers.

Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer reviewMore from Week in geek
The annual Super Bowl broadcast invariably features a torrent of TV spots promoting the movies that Hollywood hopes will be massive at the multiplexes in 2015.
