Pulp Empire: Tarantino Style Fan-Edit of Empire Strikes Back — Full Movie

26 minutes ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Pulp Empire is a fan-edit of The Empire Strikes Back but done in the style of Quentin Tarantino. Brilliantly edited and sound mixed by Njvc, Pulp Empire is an amazing labor of love. He is really channeling Tarantino's style and has really compressed the storyline for the whole movie.

Fan-edits still sit in a fair-use legal grey area, so please only watch these if you have legal copies of all six Star Wars movies and copies of every Tarantino movie soundtrack. Odds are these will get pulled at some point so watch them while you can.

The whole movie is about 89 minutes long. I recommend watching the trailer first to give you a sense of the style.

Star Wars Episode VII Adds Game of Thrones Swordsman to the Cast

59 minutes ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Much to the delight of fans, Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie (better known to viewers as Brienne of Tarth) has already been cast in Star Wars Episode VII, but now another familiar face from the hit HBO series has been added to the J.J. Abrams helmed follow-up to Return of the Jedi.

Miltos Yerolemou played swordsman Syrio Forel, and he trained the young Arya Stark to effectively wield a blade in King’s Landing. He’s an accomplished swordsman away from Westeros as well, so him being added to a movie which will see characters swinging around lightsabers is very exciting news indeed!

Though his roe in Star Wars Episode VII is described as not being a major one, you have to imagine that Abrams won’t waste the opportunity to put his incredible skills to good use in the highly anticipated movie.

Star Wars: Episode VII adds Game Of Thrones swordsman

9 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Miltos Yerolemou trained Arya Stark in Game Of Thrones. Next stop? Lightsabres in Star Wars...

There can't be too many casting announcements left where Jj Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII is concerned, but here's one. Miltos Yerolemou, who popped up in the first season of Game Of Thrones, has joined the now-shooting new Star Wars adventure.

Yerolemou played Syrio Forel in the show, notable for teaching Arya Stark about the ways of swordfighting. His role in the new Star Wars film is not expected to be a big one, but it is likely to involve waving a lightsabre around. He joins another Game Of Thrones alumni, Gwendoline Christie, in the new Star Wars cast.

Production continues on the film, which is due in cinemas in December 2015.

Star Wars Episode VII Returning To Skellig Michael in Kerry

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

Not so long ago, we were only a few bushes away from J.J. Abrams, Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley as they shot some scenes for Star Wars Episode VII, on Skellig Michael off the south west Kerry coast. As far as we were concerned, they got what they needed and it was back to Pinewood Studios to continue the shoot. But now, the rumour mill grinds (is there a day that it doesn’t when it comes to Episode VII) yet again and Latino Review are reporting that the movie is due to shoot once more on Skellig Michael, this November. Speculation is rife as to what role Skellig Michael will play in Episode VII. But one of the more popular notions is that it will serve as a location for the Sith Homeworld and this is where Luke Skywalker has been held captive. Another point of note is that »

Game Of Thrones Actor Miltos Yerolemou Joins Star Wars: Episode VII

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in June, Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie was cast in Star Wars: Episode VII, and now we’re hearing that she won’t be the only one from Westeros to travel to a galaxy far, far away. According to BBC News, Miltos Yerolemou has landed a role in the hotly anticipated blockbuster as well.

Yerolemou is known for playing expert swordsman Syrio Forel on the first season of Game of Thrones, who trains young Arya Stark. While one could easily see him taking those skills to the next level by wielding a lightsaber, BBC News cautions that he’s landed a small role in the film. That’s all we know about it, however, so fan speculation is bound to run wild with this one.

The actor joins an expanding and mysterious cast of newcomers to the Star Wars franchise, including Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years »

Star Wars: Episode VII Recruits Miltos Yerolemou

19 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There's one Westeros resident already in the cast, in the shape of Gwendoline Christie, but J.J. Abrams and his Star Wars: Episode VII casting team have not finished recruiting Game Of Thrones actors. Miltos Yerolemou has, according to the BBC, scored a small role in the new film.Though production on the latest Star Wars has been underway for months (pausing recently to reconfigure schedules after Harrison Ford’s leg was broken on set), Abrams and co. are apparently still bringing actors aboard to supplement the cast, which already includes Ford, Christie, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Anthony Daniels, Max Von Sydow, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong'o, Oscar Isaac, Christina Chong, Crystal Clarke and Pip Anderson.Details on Yerolemou’s role have yet to be revealed, to almost no-one’s surprise. But while you might remember him best as Syrio Forel, who taught Maisie Williams »

Game Of Thrones’ Miltos Yerolemou Joins Star Wars: Episode VII

21 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Those darn limeys don't observe Labor Day, and it's for the best since they've got some new Star Wars: Episode VII casting.  According to the BBC, Miltos Yerolemou, who played swordsman Syrio Forel on Game of Thrones, has joined the upcoming Star Wars sequel in an undisclosed role, although it will probably be a minor one.  Yerolemou is probably best known to American audiences for his performance on Game of Thrones, but he's also played other roles that involve sword fighting, so don't be surprised if you see him wielding a lightsaber. Yeromelou is the second Game of Thrones alum to join Episode VII following the casting of Gwendoline Christie back in June, although Lucasfilm declined to comment on his casting.  In case you've never seen Yerolemou on Game of Thrones or just want a refresher, hit the jump.  Star Wars: Episode VII opens December 18, 2015, and also stars Mark Hamill, »

A Familiar Face From Game Of Thrones Joins Star Wars Episode VII Cast

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

Miltos Yerolemou had a memorable role in the first season of Game of Thrones as Arya Stark's mentor, and now BBC News reports that the actor has joined the cast of Star Wars Episode VII. He taught Arya how to properly wield a blade and is in fact an accomplished swordsman away from Westeros as well, so it would be a huge surprise if those skills aren't put to good use in the J.J. Abrams helmed follow-up to Return of the Jedi. However, the site cautions that his role won't be a major one (though that doesn't necessarily mean we won't see him using a lightsaber at some point...). He of course joins fellow Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie, and just because his role in this instalment is a small one, there's also nothing to say that he won't return for a bigger part in Rian Johnson's Star Wars Episode IX. »

‘Star Wars Rebels’ 3-Minute Short: Ezra vs. Tie Fighter Pilot

22 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Star Wars Rebels – the upcoming Disney Xd animated series – takes place during the reign of Emperor Palpatine between Episode III (Revenge of the Sith) and Episode IV (A New Hope) of the live-action Star Wars movie trilogies. Disney and Lucasfilm have released a collection of 3-minute clips that introduce the main heroes on the show – and the fourth (and final) one, titled “Not What You Think”, is now online. You can watch it, above.

Ezra Bridger (voiced by Taylor Gray) steps into the spotlight for the newest Star Wars Rebels clip; part Luke Skywalker, part Disney’s Aladdin, the character is poised to serve as the series’ protagonist. As illustrated by the clip above, Ezra has a distinct independent streak; he might have little love for the Galactic Empire, but he starts out the series as someone who’s less concerned about ...

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Tops Weak Labor Day Box Office, Summer Stumbles to Close

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

Hollywood didn’t have much to celebrate this Labor Day. The holiday is traditionally a slow one at the box office, and this one was no exception, providing one final death rattle on a summer that was largely D.O.A.

In its fifth week of release, “Guardians of the Galaxy” prevailed over two modestly budgeted newcomers, “November Man” and “As Above, So Below,” to hold on to the top spot on domestic box office charts with $22.2 million over the four-day holiday. Its domestic total now stands at $280 million and the film will likely hit $300 million stateside by the time it ends its run.

“‘Guardians’ is just rolling right now,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “It’s unconventional, it shatters expectations and there’s a real story to it.”

For the major studios, back to school time represents a reprieve. The summer box office »

New Star Wars Rebels Short Is “Not What You Think”

1 September 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For your Labor Day viewing enjoyment, Disney Xd has released a new Star Wars Rebels short.  The animated series will take place about 14 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith and centers on the fledgling rebellion as the Empire hunts down the last of the Jedi Knights to secure rule of the galaxy.  This new short gives us an introduction to Ezra Bridger (Taylor Gray), who shares the same irreverent attitude of Sabine and Zeb.  I'm curious to see how the show will develop and differentiate these characters, and how their playful jabs at the Empire will stack up when faced with powerful foes like Agent Kallus and the Inquisitor. Hit the jump to check out the new Star Wars Rebels short, "Not What You Think".  Star Wars Rebels premieres on Disney Xd this October, and also features the voices of Freddie Prinze Jr., David Oyelowo, Jason Isaacs, »

20 Little Known Facts That Will Make You See Famous Actors Differently

1 September 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s easy to think you know an actor through the characters that they play, or even to assume you know something about an actor by the sheer fact that they’re an actor. Particularly when someone is often type-cast, it can sometimes be hard to swallow when you find out something that changes how you see a big name. For instance, when a huge star like Tom Cruise became an insane scientologist, or when you find out that awesome badass action-star Vin Diesel has been an avid Dungeons and Dragons fan for 20 years, or even the knowledge that Pam and Jim aren’t a couple in real life (weep), can change your perspective on an actor you took for granted as their character(s).

Sometimes our favourite actors’ rise to fame has been shaky, unintended, or even baffling, such as Danny Trejo’s movement from drug counselor to world-class badass. »

"Star Wars" Staffers Rank The Lightsaber Battles

1 September 2014 1:35 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The editorial staff of the official "Star Wars" website, StarWars.com, have decided to rank the top ten one-on-one fights in the first six "Star Wars" movies. Each of the lightsaber battles was ranked on "inventiveness, choreography and emotional impact".

What will surprise people will be the top choice. The Darth Maul fight in "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" is about the only sequence from that film commonly lauded, and it came in at number one. That it beat out the more iconic battle between Luke and Darth Vader in "The Empire Strikes Back" in second place will certainly ruffle some feathers.

Meanwhile the final battle between Luke and Vader in "Return of the Jedi" came in fifth, with the two battles at the end of "Revenge of the Sith" (Obi-Wan vs. Anakin, Yoda vs. Palpatine) coming in third and fourth.

Doctor Who, Ep. 8.02, “Into the Dalek”: Excellent character work outweighs familiar third act

Doctor Who, Season 8, Episode 2, “Into the Dalek”

Written by Phil Ford and Steven Moffat

Directed by Ben Wheatley

Airs Saturdays at 9pm Et on BBC America

This week, on Doctor Who: The Doctor doesn’t like soldiers, Clara is a master of the quick change, and Mr. Pink is a reader

Dalek stories are tricky. As monsters, they’re one trick ponies, but they’re also iconic and massively popular, so they’re trotted out every season or so for the Doctor to face*. They’re the Doctor’s oldest enemy (the First Doctor faced off with them in his second story), and frankly, the series ran out of new ways to use them a very long time ago. In season one of NuWho, Robert Shearman revitalized the creatures with his fantastic script for “Dalek”, but since season two, their appearances have mostly been a series of diminishing returns, »

Amazing Star Wars Fan Restoration Removes All Of George Lucas' Mistakes

31 August 2014 7:37 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As popular as Star Wars is, I'm not sure there's a franchise out there that has dealt with more controversy and backlash. There are certainly those out there who unconditionally love every frame of every movie in the two trilogies, but there are also those who not only endlessly rant about the prequels, but also the Special Editions of the original trilogy that were made in the late 1990s. The latter were created after George Lucas set out to try and capture what he described as his original vision for the movies, using the help of more advanced CGI, but many die-hards felt that all of the extras and changes did little more than clutter up the screen and take away the original impact (not to mention the rage over Greedo shooting first). Because of all this, years have been spent begging for high-definition versions of the original theatrical releases »
