I want to get the basics out of the way first. If you don’t like or want spoilers don’t read on. I will tell you the point of a person reading a book and then sitting down to write up about what they didn’t just read when there is one. Seems like a waste of time to me.
Dark Disciple is thus far the best of the new, in-canon, Star Wars novels. It is so by a healthy margin and I was aware of it probably 1/3 of the way through my reading of it which is a great feeling to have but in turn allows entry for trepidation as you become aware of your desire to not be let down by the conclusion. Because of this, though not the only reason, I found myself being very satisfied if the story would have ended at a couple of »

Backed by a live orchestra and a receptive crowd, Back to the Future celebrated its 30th anniversary in some style at last night's (July 4) Royal Albert Hall performance.
The time-travel comedy is one of those rare films that feels just about perfect. Robert Zemeckis's fluid, faultless direction doesn't have a frame out of place, and the script is a tight-as-a-drum masterclass in setup, pay-off and ticking-clock suspense.
Musically, the roaring guitars of 'The Power of Love' and 'Johnny B. Goode' lend the film rock 'n' roll edge, so it's easy to forget just how great Alan Silvestri's score is. As far as film music goes, Silvestri's familiar Back to the Future theme is easily on par with John Williams's formidable hat-trick of Star Wars, Superman and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
In this Amblin era blockbuster scores weren't afraid to be big, bold and adventurous. The hummable, »
Kicking things off with only a couple bits of The Force Awakens news (which is bound to explode this coming week with Disney heading to Comic-Con this week to promote the film), and a couple of toy displays have given us some new details on the new First Order and their legion of Stormtroopers. The tyranny of imperial rule sparked rebellion, and the Stormtrooper legions were scattered in the aftermath of the Empire’s fall,” the packaging reads. “Now, the rise of the First Order ushered in the next chapter in the Stormtrooper’s legacy as a new era of ruthless brutality begins.” Read the rest of the packing here, and check out a promo »

While we often lament some of the films that end up stuck in development Hell, never to become realized on the big screen, there are some films we should all be glad never came to fruition.
Sometimes they don’t get it! We all know that the film industry is a business and they want to make money, but Hollywood doesn’t always realize that the best way to do that is to make a good film. Sometimes, Hollywood’s habit of taking a known property and stretching them out to absurd proportions proves that they just don’t get the point. Fortunately, there are times when someone recognizes a bad idea and puts on the brakes. Below is a list of 14 films where someone was smart enough to notice that they were making a pile of trash and threw in the towel.

Next week, some of the biggest movies and TV shows Hollywood has to offer will head a few hours south to San Diego for Comic-Con 2015, which runs from Thursday, July 9 to Sunday, July 12. Last week, before the official Comic-Con schedule was released, we tried to break down some of the surprises that the studios and networks may have in store for fans, since many of the big events at every Con aren't found on the official schedule. This year will surely be no exception, and several of the studios are even feeding into this, with the lineups for Open Road Films and 20th Century Fox still shrouded in mystery. We can speculate on what movies these studios will showcase until the cows come home, but we won't know for sure what exactly will be on display until everyone has been seated in Hall H for each presentation. Last year, the »
As a kid, you can’t be picky where you find your fix of sci-fi and horror. Sometimes it’s the big screen, but often (for me, anyway) it was that living room landmark, television. I remember being seven and watching a Western where a couple of guys are on vacation at a resort where you can be a cowboy and have gunfights with androids (Sci-Fi, sweet!). And then…bad things start to happen. The androids break down, and now they’re killing the guests (ooh, Horror!). My head reeled from this magical swirl, a mesh of circuitry and chaos. Welcome to Westworld (1973), and its parent resort, Delos. Their slogan: Have we got a vacation for you.

The effect that San Diego Comic-Con can have on a movie is a strange thing; the excitement generated from footage seen at the show can turn a project into a must-see — within a certain demographic, at least — or, alternatively, into a target for derision and snark, should the Comic-Con hive mind decide that it's not something that lives up to their collective expectations. This year, there are a couple of high-profile projects that run the risk of disappointing fans, and thus watching their buzz go sour: Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Batman v

We have news on Star Wars Rogue One filming: It has started! Yes, the Gareth Edwards-led movie, which will be the first Star Wars stand-alone movie, has kicked off shooting at Pinewood Studios, just outside of London. There are various reports suggesting that it just the second unit that have begun putting stuff before the camera, but there are others that Felicity Jones has also shot her first scene.
Making Star Wars and Star Wars Aficionado say that ‘loads of trees are being brought into the studio’ to shoot a ‘jungle landing’ scene, and some of the Star Destroyer sets and models have been brought over from The Force Awakens to be re-used on Rogue One. Blimey, this excites me.

We've known for quite some time that Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One will be shot at London's Pinewood Studios this summer, but a production start date has never been confirmed. Two separate reports have surfaced this week claiming that shooting is already under way, with star Felicity Jones filming her first scene. Making Star Wars reports that several trees have been brought into the studio for a scene involving a ship's landing in the jungle. But not all of these landing scenes will be shot at Pinewood. There has also been some second unit shooting done with a number of ships including Star Destroyers, along with "some stuff" that looks like it could be the Death Star, but that has yet to be confirmed.
A separate report from earlier this week claims that shooting on Rogue One has been under way for the past three weeks, while confirming that jungle scenes are currently being shot. »
When Comic-Con comes around each year, not only is there an overwhelming rush of blockbuster news, but there’s also a huge drain on our wallets.

Screen Gems has released some new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies images. Directed by Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) and based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the story follows Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) as they try to navigate societal pressures of the landed gentry and fend off hoards of zombies. Speaking to EW, Steers explained how he was approaching the film more as a spin on Jane Austen than a B-movie. “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” says Steers. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” [caption id="attachment_481321" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Screen Gems[/caption] That’s a difficult line to walk. You don’t want to be stodgy with a ridiculous premise, but at the same time, »

If Dice and EA’s Star Wars Battlefront is the pixelated appetiser in November, then J.J. Abrams’ hotly-anticipated The Force Awakens is irrefutably the main course the following month. Yes, December is shaping to be a magical period for long-time fans of a galaxy far, far away, though given that there is a thirty-year interlude between the events that occur in Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, there’s still plenty of stories to be told in this most beloved universe.
Bundled under Disney’s Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens – a shotgun blast of novels, comics and Ya fiction all releasing in December – is Star Wars: Shattered Empire, and today we bring you a synopsis for the upcoming prequel comic book that sheds some light on the hitherto-mysterious plot.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone seeing as though the film is out next year, but reports are coming in that second unit production has already begun for Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. These reports have come from the Bothan spies from Making Star Wars and Star Wars Aficionado and even suggest that Felicity Jones has already shot her first scene.
The production has begun at Pinewood Studios in London (where they filmed Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and several trees have been brought into the set to film a jungle landing and bombardment sequence. The reports also say that several of the Star Destroyer sets and models have been brought over from The Force Awakens to be re-used on Rogue One. One report also claims that some sets from The Force Awakens are being re-dressed to act as the Death Star.

Barely 24 hours have passed since EA and Dice kicked off its closed alpha for Star Wars Battlefront and already a flurry of information and gameplay clips have found their way online. Inevitably, both parties have been scouring the Internet in an attempt to curb the leak – particularly gameplay footage, which gets yanked from YouTube within seconds of begin uploaded.
That doesn’t necessarily mean that every inkling of information has been locked behind closed doors, though, with a fresh batch of high-res screens emerging earlier today. Showcasing the beautiful yet arid vistas of Tatooine, the images themselves are a marvel to behold, and underline just how loyal Dice is remaining to the source material in its hotly-anticipated title.
