Kaley Cuoco just drained the asthma inhalers of science fiction geeks across the galaxy ... by dressing up as a sexy Luke Skywalker. The "Big Bang Theory" star was at the Longines Masters of Los Angeles -- a horse jumping event -- where she brought a whole Star Wars team to a charity costume part of the program, and even had a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader. As we previously reported ... Cuoco added a new horse »

It seems that hanging out with all those geeks on The Big Bang Theory has rubbed off on Kaley Cuoco. The newly single star got her Jedi on and dressed up as Luke Skywalker when she competed at the Longines Masters equestrian event in Los Angeles on Saturday, Oct. 3. With her blonde hair tousled and looking makeup-free, the 29-year-old was accompanied by a crew of Star Wars characters – including Chewbacca, Princess Leia and Han Solo – as she competed in the charity competition. Cuoco, who announced [...] »
This week, Neil Calloway suggests some films that would work well as TV shows…
With the new series of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. now underway, the Limitless TV show having just debuted in the Us, and talk of a Game of Thrones movie being made (later denied). There’s even a TV show (the second, following a short-lived 1990 show) of the John Hughes/John Candy classic Uncle Buck coming soon. Add in the Minority Report TV show, and the just announced Lethal Weapon series and we have truly entered the age of the TV and film crossover.
The line between TV and film is growing smaller. The “small screen” is no longer seen as a step down from the cinema, largely because our TVs are no longer small, and people are watching what awful people call “content” in the same way – streaming it to their TV, laptop or tablet.

As that special time of the year grows ever nearer, adults and children alike continue to merrily cross the days off their calendars with their eyes on that huge date in December. No, not Christmas: that’s only the second most important day in December 2015, thanks to one of the biggest events in modern cinematic history.
On December 17 millions of us will be heading to a galaxy far, far away in the hope that it’ll be worth the damn effort this time around. Despite some bridges being burned with the last three movies, the prequels seem to have been put to the back of most fan’s minds, hopeful that they won’t have to make room in there for another trilogy’s worth of crap.
What are the odds of this happening? Well, quite low, in my opinion, but as Star Wars fans we would be »

Kicking things off with Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Kathleen Kennedy has been talking about the movie’s themes and how the Skywalker family play into everything. It had been rumoured that this new trilogy would focus on the offspring of Luke and Leia (not together you weirdos!), but we still don’t know the full story despite being less than 3 months away from the release of the movie. But we do know that the lineage will play a role. “The Saga films focus on the Skywalker family saga,” Kennedy said. “The stories follow a linear narrative that connects to the previous six films. The Force Awakens follows Return of the Jedi and continues that generational story… »

The item was sold on Friday (October 2) as part of Hollywood memorabilia auction house Profiles in History, which included a number of Star Wars items.
It was reported last month that the item was up for sale, earmarked between $80,000 and $120,000, and bidding for it opened on Thursday (October 1), according to CNN.
The bikini was worn by Leia when she was imprisoned as a slave by Jabba the Hutt in the film, and a few alterations were made for the look due to Fisher's weight loss during production.
The winning bidder has not been named, but will also take home six stills boasting the film's original name, "Revenge of the Jedi", with the lot.
Despite its popularity, Leia's slave bikini was not biggest seller at the auction.

Did someone just buy a very expensive Halloween costume? A “slave bikini” worn by Carrie Fisher in “Return of the Jedi” commanded a staggering $96,000 at auction on Friday, CNN reports. The winning bidder for the outfit, which was part of the online auction “Profiles in History,” was not identified. Also Read: Disney Promises Angry Consumers Princess Leia 'Star Wars' Toys for Girls Are Coming The auction for the costume, which began Thursday, had an opening bid of $80,000. In the “Star Wars” films, Fisher’s character, Princess Leia, was usually dressed in robes, but when she was captured by Jabba the Hutt she was. »

What’s going on in the world of “Star Wars” other than toy marketing blitzes, Topps trading card reveals, and other merchandizing paraphernalia? Well, there’s good news and bad news out there, though "bad" is, admittedly, very subjective. Lets start off with the good. U.K. actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw, star of “Beyond the Lights” and the severely underrated period drama “Belle,” is rumored to be in the mix for one of the main female roles in Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: Episode VIII.” Previously, it’s was reported that Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”), and Olivia Cooke (“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl”) are vying for a significant female role in ‘Episode VIII.’ Well, Latino Review adds that Mbatha-Raw is also in contention for this role role, and reveals that there may be two significant female roles in the movie, which will also include »

Latino Review broke the story which says that she's actually already auditioned for the film, and joins a shortlist that includes Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black"), Gina Rodriguez ("Jane the Virgin") and Olivia Cooke ("Ouija").
There's a twist though. The site says these actresses are all being considered for not one but two major roles in the film, meaning maybe two of those names might be scoring one hell of a new screen credit in the near future.
Some filming on "Star Wars: Episode VIII" has already taken place, but the majority of the shoot is expected to happen early next year ahead of a May 2017 release. »

Admiral Ackbar, who was first introduced in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, has become one of the more popular side characters over the years despite only one movie appearance to date. He helped win the raid on the second Death Star. And he's notorious for saying 'It's a trap!' A line of dialogue that has been uttered by others in the franchise, but never with such gusto. It's no secret that director J.J. Abrams is bringing the character back in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But what many may not know yet is that the same actor will be reprising this high ranking Mon Calamari rebel. And certain aspects of the production just don't sit right with the longtime puppeteer.
At this time, there are still very few plot details that we know about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And an official synopsis has yet to be released. »
Following on from the news that Sarah Michelle Gellar is voicing an Inquisitor in Star Wars Rebels, executive producer Simon Kinberg has been speaking to The Nerdist about the upcoming second season, during which he was asked about the possibility of characters from Rebels appearing in the likes of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story or other future movies.
“There’s certainly potential for it. And as a fan of everything that Lucasfilm’s doing, it’d be fun to see different characters pop up across different stories,” states Kinberg. ” But the thing we’re really focused on is just making sure there is real continuity, that it is a unified universe from a story perspective, where anything that happens in Rebels is canon, in the same way as the original movies or prequels, The Clone Wars, and the movies going forward. There’s just a lot of care that »

Back in March it was announced that Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar has joined husband Freddie Prinze Jr. in the second season of Star Wars Rebels, although her character was being kept under wraps. However, Buzzfeed has now revealed that she’ll be portraying an Inquisitor known as The Seventh Sister.

Movie posters are there to sell the movie. But some of them sell the movie too well, making you think a bad film will be a really, really good one.
To celebrate those rare moments when the publicity succeeds where the movie doesn't, here are just ten examples of great posters for terrible films.
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 57%
The teaser poster for the second coming of Star Wars was screaming-in-the-street exciting when it first hit bus stop billboards. Intriguingly, there's no mention of hyper-annoying sidekicks or intergalactic tax systems anywhere on it. Hmm.
2. Cobra (1986)
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 13%
So masculine it made men pregnant, the poster for action disasterpiece Cobra drips with virility. Alas, the film dripped with so much blood that the first cut earned an X rating, forcing reshoots that made an already preposterous plot crumple like a crisp packet in Sly's massive manly fists. »
The Force is strong in their family. Freddie Prinze Jr. joined the Star Wars universe over a year ago as the voice of Jedi Kanan Jarrus in Star Wars Rebels. Now his real life wife, Sarah Michelle Gellar, will face off against her husband as a sinister lackey of Darth Vader.
Gellar joins the cast of Star Wars Rebels Season 2 as Seventh Sister Inquisitor. Wielding a dual-blade lightsaber and retractable mask, Seventh Sister is swift on her feet and gifted with her weapon. To make the character even cooler, Gellar gives her a menacing voice befitting a character whose sole purpose is to hunt down and destroy Jedi and the Rebellion.
Below you can watch a new featurette with Gellar talking about Seventh Sister and her thoughts about the Star Wars saga as a whole. There's quite a new of new Star Wars Rebels Season 2 footage mixed in including Seventh »
Last month, just a few weeks before production started in Ireland on Star Wars: Episode VIII, a report surfaced that claimed actresses Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) and Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) are all on the short list for the female lead role, although that was never confirmed. Today we have a new report from Latino-Review, which claims there are not one, but two female lead roles, with Gugu Mbatha-Raw also listed as a contender. The three previously mentioned actresses are all still in contention for both roles, along with Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Unfortunately, no details were given for these roles, but a report from August claimed that writer-director Rian Johnson is seeking a "strong" female lead, who is rumored to be related to either Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) or Han Solo (Harrison Ford). Those details have yet to be confirmed, and »
Star Wars fever is running at an all-time high, with Star Wars: The Force Awakens arriving in theaters this Christmas. And while average, everyday fans have to settle for action figures and branded soda cans to celebrate their love for the franchise, the rich actually get to own a piece of Star Wars history. One such lucky fan with a very well-endowed wallet snatched up a piece of memorabilia that may be the most coveted keepsake in the whole galaxy.
Yes, Princess Leia's iconic slave bikini costume from Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi went on the auction block this week, and it fetched a pretty penny. Worn by Carrie Fisher in the 1983 trilogy ending sequel, the skimpy metal and clothe bathing suit went for $96,000. It is the same outfit the actress can be seen wearing during the opening Jabba the Hutt barge escape scene, where Leia chocks Jabba to death. »
As we inch closer and closer to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it's easy to forget the circus that surrounded the casting. It seems like every day we heard this actor or that actress was on Lucasfilm's list for some role. And if you miss those crazy days of rampant speculation, don't worry, there are plenty more Star Wars films on the way, and while we've already seen it a bit with Rogue One, which is currently filming, the process is starting again in earnest with Star Wars: Episode VIII. The latest rumor -- and we stress rumor -- to make the rounds comes courtesy of Latino Review. According to their industry sources, British actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw is in the running to play the female lead in director Rian Johnson's Episode VIII. She joins three other names who were previously reported to be on the shortlist, »

In his latest Star Wars column, Latino Review’s Dave Gonzalez includes two very interesting updates for Looper director Rian Johnson’s still untitled Star Wars: Episode VIII – one of which adds a new name to the shortlist of actresses that are up for the female lead role in the movie.
According to him, Belle actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw is vying for one of the leads alongside Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin), Golden Globe nominee Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl star Olivia Cooke. Yes, I said one of the roles – because the second update suggests that these ladies are actually all in the mix to portray two different characters.
We don’t have any details on either role, but both are said to be “substantial.” Apparently, Mbatha-Raw has definitely auditioned, but beyond that we have no idea which of these actresses are emerging as the frontrunners. »

As if that earlier Star Wars Episode VIII shortlist — which included Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany, Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez, and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘s Olivia Cooke — weren’t intriguing enough, a new report claims there’s one more name in the mix. Gugu Mbatha-Raw is reportedly also in the running for film. Read all about the Star Wars Episode […]
