A whole bunch of new images from Jj Abram's Star Wars: The Force Awakens - and they offer some clues as to the film too...
A whole host of fresh photography from Star Wars: The Force Awakens landed over the weekend (well, it was May the 4th on Monday), and director Jj Abrams had lifted some of his trademark veil of secrecy.
The shots appeared in Vanity Fair's Star Wars special issue, and there's also the first image of Game Of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie's character. She's going to be playing Captain Phasma in the movie, and she's described as "a member of the First Order - the film's new version »
We already know that the first standalone Star Wars Anthology movie, which goes by the name of Rogue One, will be arriving in cinemas at the end of 2016. Godzilla's Gareth Edwards is directing, and Felicity Jones has signed up to star.
At the end of last week, we learned too of a change of personnel with regards the second Star Wars Anthology film, that's due in cinemas in 2018. Chronicle and Fantastic Four's Josh Trank had been due to direct that one, but he departed the projected, and the search is on for a new director.
Note: The above image is fan art and not official art from the upcoming untitled movie It's been rumored for quite awhile now, but today -- on Star Wars Day, of all days -- we bring word that the second standalone Star Wars movie due out in 2018 will be a Boba Fett origin story. The Wrap broke the news only hours after that film's initial director, Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic Four) departed the project to pursue other ideas. So while the film awaits a new director, we can start speculating as to what kind of origin story this actually is. Here's video of Boba Fett's initial 1978 screentest -- his real origin story. That's because we've already seen stuff with Boba Fett as a kid, adopted by his father Jango Fett -- who has a much...

Star Wars Day aka May the 4th Be With You lived up to its name today thanks in whole to a wonderful collection of images, video and information about Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens shared by Vanity Fair in conjunction with renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz.
A cover story by Vf confirmed what had been rumored for several months now starting with the chrome stormtrooper first glimpsed in the latest Star Wars Episode 7 trailer. This caped trooper is played by Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth on HBO's Game of Thrones) and is known as Captain Phasma, a first officer of the New Order.
The picture was simultaneously tweeted by Peter Mayhew, the actor behind Chewbacca, in a humorous tweet.
Also confirmed is that Adam Driver will be played the villainous Kylo Ren. Up until now we had only seen Ren with his helmet on. »

The character has been the subject of rumours ever since Disney and Lucasfilm announced a series of stand-alone (now known as the Anthology) Star Wars films to run in between The Force Awakens and the other main episodes of the new trilogy. Now, according to The Wrap, we’re not far from official confirmation that the galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunter’s origins will be the subject of the film targeting a 2018 release.Until there is an official confirmation, however, we’re duty bound to sound the Rumour Alert Siren. But given all the chatter, it seems certain that some aspect of Fett will be explored, beyond his limited screen time in the original trilogy (you know, introduced in Empire Strikes Back seeming like a cool badass with a funky ship, then apparently killed off in Return Of The Jedi via a series of mishaps that Buster Keaton would »
In the bad old days of “Whiz! Bam! Pow!” TV-and-movie superheroes — which yielded cut-rate, campy artifacts like those “Captain America” TV movies or Roger Corman’s unreleased version of “Fantastic Four” — a massive spectacle like “Avengers: Age of Ultron” seemed unimaginable. Yet the technology that has made such blockbusters feasible has, creatively, become a curse as well as a blessing.
Computer-generated imagery, or CGI, makes all things possible. While the 1978 “Superman” used the memorable slogan, “You will believe a man can fly,” that claim has never been truer than it is now.
The ability to mount enormous battles featuring multiple super-powered characters, however, has become its own trap. And while the results can be visually astounding, the movies regularly feel as lifeless and mechanized as the technology responsible for bringing those visions to fruition.
The why of it remains something of a mystery, but the outcome is frequently a hugely »

Perhaps this is damage control after the exit of Josh Trank. Perhaps this is the producers simply saying, "Don't worry, we got this". Still. If this manages to turn out to be true then this is a Star Wars film that the fans have been asking for. A Boba Fett origins movie. You know. After Mace Windu cut his dad's head off. Obviously. Maybe this is The Wrap looking to get out ahead of everyone else. Disney did not confirm or comment to their claim. A Boba Fett origin story has long been rumored as a possibility. Someone in The Wrap's camp has enough to go on now to claim it to be true. With this report it looks more and more that every Anthology film will be...

Though previously rumored, there now appears to be added weight to reports that the upcoming second of the "Star Wars: Anthology" spin-off films will put the focus on the original trilogy's iconic bounty hunter character Boba Fett.
The report comes from The Wrap which says the film is still targeting a 2018 release despite the loss of director Josh Trank recently. A representative for Disney had no comment though.
In the "Star Wars" universe, Boba Fett is a Mandalorian warrior trained by his father-figure Jango Fett. He became a notorious bounty hunter throughout the galaxy, his travels leading him to work for the Empire.
In other "Star Wars" news, filmmaker J.J. Abrams has revealed that he's considering putting in a little easter egg in the upcoming "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". That fan reference? The bones of a certain Gungan. He tells Vanity Fair:
"I have a thought about putting »

Earlier today, Vanity Fair released photos from the ’Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ set. But not all the characters were revealed. Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, and ’Game of Thrones’ star Gwendoline Christie didn’t put in an appearance with the group. But anyone who watched the trailer already recognized this menacing saunter. Whether in Westerosi armor or the chrome of the First Order, Gwendoline Christie oozes presence. Meet Captain Phasma. Or should I say “Captain Phas-tastic”!? Image Credit: Vanity Fair. Photo by Annie Leibovitz. No other information was released about Christie’s character. We don’t even get a peek at her look for the movie. But with that shiny armor and that intricate cloak, clearly she’s no ordinary stormtrooper. »

While Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One will be with us next year, its follow up, due out in 2018, has been making the news in a big way this week, due to Josh Trank leaving the project. Now, attention turns once again to the now directorless spin-off, with The Wrap reporting that the movie will focus on fan favourite bounty hunter, Boba Fett. This has been a turn of events that has being rumoured for quite a while now (it would be a stupid move not to exploit such a beloved character), and while the outlet says it will be an origin movie, Boba Fett’s origins have already being explored in Attack of the Clones. Most likely, if it does go ahead, the movie will follow the galaxy’s favourite bad ass on an adventure leading up to his appearance in The Empire Strikes Back. It’s all a rumour at this stage, »

Happy Star Wars Day everyone! After new images and details from Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted online earlier today [see here and here], The Wrap is now reporting that the second spin-off in the Star Wars Anthology series is set to focus on the origin and backstory of Boba Fett.
Due for release in 2018, the second Anthology movie was to have been directed by Chronicle and Fantastic Four director Josh Trank, although he exited the project this past week and the film is now seeking a new director before it goes before the camera sometime next year.
The character of Boba Fett first appeared on film in the second Star Wars film The Empire Strikes Back and also appearing in Return of the Jedi before featuring as a young boy alongside his father Jango Fett in the middle chapter of the prequel trilogy, Attack of the Clones. It is expected that the »

The Wrap is reporting that the 2018 Star Wars spinoff film, which was originally set to be directed by Josh Trank before he was fired, will tell Boba Fett’s origin story. While definitely exciting, this news isn’t particularly surprising given that we knew an origin film for the character was in the works. We just didn’t know when we’d be seeing it.
Unfortunately, no further details were given, so it’s unclear when exactly the story will take place and whether or not the entire thing will focus on Fett’s origin or if his backstory will simply be worked into a larger plot arc. We already know that the character is the offspring of clone trooper template Jango Fett, but aside from that, we don’t have too many more official canon details on him. And honestly, a lot of people feel that it should stay that way. »

Director Josh Trank may have exited the second of the so-called Star Wars anthology films (or he was forced out), but that doesn.t appear to have caused Lucasfilm to pump the brakes at all. Today brings news that the film will tell the origin story of fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett. According to The Wrap, their sources tell them that the plot does indeed revolve around the notorious villain, supporting one of the rumors that has been making the rounds for months. Since almost the moment these standalone movies were announced, Boba Fett has been one of names most mentioned in conjunction to them. Some thought it was just wishful thinking, but if this does in fact turn out to be true, and we.re talking about Star Wars, so who knows, this news will make a lot of people happy. Boba Fett is most known as the intergalactic »
For as long as we've been hearing about Star Wars spinoff films it has been presumed one would center on the bounty hunter Boba Fett, first seen in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back and almost immediately becoming every kid's favorite evil character. Well, now we have confirmation from The Wrap that the film will indeed center on Monsieur Fett and will set out to tell his origin story. Of course, this news comes only days after director Josh Trank left (was firedc) from the project as rumors swirl regarding the reason, including erratic behavior on the set of the upcoming Fantastic Four which allegedly caused producer Simon Kinberg to suggest going a different direction. readmore postid="175684" Kinberg is closely involved with the spinoff film, which, along with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One, will be outside the new trilogy of Star Wars films beginning with J.J. Abrams »

Josh Trank was recently dumped by Disney and Lucasfilm from the still untitled Star Wars Anthology movie, but it's still moving ahead even without a director currently at the helm. According to The Wrap, whoever takes over will get to tell the origin story of Boba Fett! It's going to be an origin story for the iconic character, presumably taking place some time after the events of Attack of the Clones. After all, the "adventures" of Boba as a kid wouldn't be all that exciting! There had been rumours that Rogue One (which stars Felicity Jones, Ben Mendelsohn and Riz Ahmed) would revolve around bounty hunters, but it seems as if it will be this movie which delves into that world. There's no word on who's set to replace Trank or who will play Fett, so be sure to share your thoughts on who the right people for the job are below. »
