Could 'Rogue One' Characters Appear in Other 'Star Wars' Movies?

just now | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

As Rogue One: A Star Wars Story nears its December 16 release date, one of the biggest questions fans have with regards to the film and its place within the Star Wars mythology is, well, where did all the Rogue One characters go after they stole those Death Star plans?  Based on all the other Star Wars films that exist -- including the film that immediately follows Rogue One chronologically, A New Hope -- only a tiny fraction of the characters featured in Rogue One appear in future installments. Characters like Darth Vader and Mon Mothma show up in the subsequent film, but no one else does. So what gives? Is Rogue One going to end with an explanation as to why we don't see Jyn Erso...

Can 'Office Christmas Party' Topple 'Moana' for #1 at the Weekend Box Office?

1 hour ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Much like last week, this weekend will be even a little lighter at the weekend box office as the studios make ready for the holiday rush, which begins next weekend with the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and WB's Collateral Beauty. As for this weekend, the lone new wide release is Paramount's holiday-themed comedy Office Christmas Party, while EuropaCorp's Miss Sloane and Focus' Nocturnal Animals each expand nationwide. Additionally, Lionsgate's Oscar hopeful La La Land will be released into five theaters before expanding next weekend while fellow awards season darling, Manchester by the Sea, continues to expand this weekend and could find itself in a tight race for a spot in the top ten. For the first time in some time it isn't clear cut as to what film will be taking the top spot at the box office. Disney's Moana would appear to be a strong »

Will Snoke Be Played by a Giant Puppet in Star Wars 8?

2 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last year's blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced fans to a number of new heroes and villains in this galaxy far, far away, including Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and the nefarious Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson). We also got our first look at the one villain who is really pulling all the strings, the massive Supreme Leader Snoke, portrayed through motion capture by Andy Serkis. All of these characters will be returning in Star Wars 8, although it seems there will be some interesting changes when it comes to Supreme Leader Snoke.

In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we only saw Supreme Leader Snoke in the form of a massive hologram, in scenes where he's addresing both Kylo Ren and General Hux. Since we only saw him through a hologram, some fans theorized that it may only be the holographic projection that is so large, »

What If 'Star Wars' and 'Batman v Superman' Collided?

2 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

As if inspiring Batman to be a better hero and form the Justice League — not to mention, sacrificing himself to save humanity — wasn't enough to prove that Superman is the superhero of the year, director Zack Snyder has one final card to play: revealing that Kal-El of Krypton can bring balance to the Force.

Following up on earlier images that mashed-up his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with imagery from the Star Wars movies, Snyder took to social media service Vero to share a full trailer recasting the DC heroes as Jedi and Sith warriors.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Succeeded Where it Mattered Most

3 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Rogue One nearly here, many are taking a look back at The Force Awakens, too often with a harsher eye than's needed.  While there are some bad points to be made, Episode VII managed to succeed in the most crucial of areas that sets a precedent for all that's coming.  

Things are often clearer in hindsight, as the thrill of the moment wears off, imperfections become more focused.  This isn’t a bad thing, but in terms of the entertainment industry oftentimes it gets taken too far.  Minor problems become focal points for full-scale takedowns and denouncements, while the good points are marginalized.  This is especially true for major/beloved franchises wherein they’re so popular some people can’t seem to wait to knock them down a peg.  

With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on the horizon, and preview footage garnering plenty of accolades, I’ve started »

Zack Snyder Mashes Up ‘Batman v Superman’ and ‘Star Wars’ Into Fan Trailer

4 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Though it received a tepid critical reaction and a disappointing box office performance, Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” still made history by being the first film to feature two of America’s most iconic superheroes on the same screen. Now, Snyder is already prepping the DC Extended Universe’s next film “Justice League,” which will feature Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Aquaman and more. But before that, Snyder has made a mashup fan trailer between “Batman v Superman” and “Star Wars,” which he posted on the social media site Vero. Watch “Dark Side Knight v SuperJedi: Dawn of the Alliance” below, which features a mix of “Star Wars” soundbites and imagery from the franchise amidst the “Batman v Superman” landscape.

Power Rangers: New Poster & Image Show Off Zords & Rita Repulsa

4 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Image via Lionsgate

Next year, we’ll be getting the long-awaited Power Rangers film. It’s been quit a while since this franchise has been in its heyday, but that’s not to say that it hasn’t been around — in fact, since the ‘90s, it’s pretty much been around non-stop, though one’s familiarity with the franchise may be indirectly proportional to their age. In other words, you probably grew out of it. But that’s not to say you can’t indulge in a little bit of nostalgia. We live in an era of nostalgia. From Star Wars to Star Trek to Transformers and Creed, our culture is obsessed with re-capturing those nuggets of an older age.

Of course, it remains to be seen as to whether or not this latest iteration of Power Rangers is any good, but the shots and teaser we have seen thus »

Star Wars X-Wing Blocks Hollywood Boulevard Ahead of ‘Rogue One’ Premiere

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

Don’t expect to drive down Hollywood Boulevard near Vine St. anytime within the near future — unless, of course, you’re in a spaceship.

In anticipation for the “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” premiere on Saturday at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, an X-wing starfighter has been spotted near the entrance of the venue.

Major road closures on Hollywood Boulevard between Ivar Ave. and Vine St., as well as between Vine and Argyle Ave. have ensued due to the spaceship’s landing and the premiere. Here’s a full list of closures from the Hollywood Property Owners Alliance. The starfighter has also caused a major splash on social media, as Star Wars fans jostle to catch a glimpse of the model.

So, there's an X-wing in Hollywood. No big deal. #StarWars #RogueOne #XWing pic.twitter.com/YnlYfxyJvW

The first official Star Wars spinoff is one week away and while I'm sure you've seen more TV spots than you could shake Yoda's stick at, we do have a clip from the film that gives us an idea of how the title came to be thanks to Riz Ahmed's Empire pilot-turned-Rebel, Bodhi Rook!

Rogue One Chinese Trailer Delivers Explosive Star Wars Action

5 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In just a few short days, LucasFilm will hold the world premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in Hollywood, and we showed you yesterday that the studio is bringing out the big guns, with a massvie X-Wing ship parked on a closed-off Hollywood Boulevard. While we wait for more from the premiere on Saturday, LucasFilm has debuted a new Chinese trailer, to get fans ready for the Chinese release on January 7, 2017. The studio's first ever spin-off has been tracking well with box office analysts, although it most certainly won't open as high as Star Wars: The Force Awakens last year.

Box office analysts started tracking the movie last month, which is reportedly set for an opening weekend of roughly $130 million. While that is certainly a far cry from Star Wars: The Force Awakens' record debut of $247.9 million last December, it's still an impressive opening for a »

Watch Zack Snyder’s ‘Batman v Superman’ / ‘Star Wars’ Mashup

6 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Like Star Wars, but wish it were a little more like Batman v Superman? Zack Snyder has you covered. The DC director has taken it upon himself to mash up the Batman v Superman trailer with Star Wars, reframing the conflict as “Dark Side Knight v Superjedi.” It’s a cute little exercise, but one that’s bound to ruffle some feathers […]

Great Job, Internet!: Zack Snyder mashes up Star Wars, Batman, and Superman, proving he can ruin anything

7 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Hack auteur Zack Snyder recently released a mashup of this year’s insufferable, borderline-unwatchable Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and last year’s sufferable, totally watchable Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the result sparkles with Snyder’s signature shitty incoherence and portentousness. In the trailer, clips of his film feature new Lucasfilm elements—here a Millennium Falcon, there a Vader helmet—with an audio montage of mostly Star Wars quotes. It begins with a striking image of the Death Star looming above Metropolis, but soon it turns dark. Snyder dark. He originally uploaded the video to the social media app Vero, but for now, here’s a YouTube link:

“False Jedi” is scrawled across Superman’s chest, in thrilling homage to the overwrought talk of gods and men that suffused Snyder’s long, dark-blue opus. The Star Wars quotes, at first seeming to suggest a weird alternate plot »

A few days ago Zack Snyder posted a Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice / Star Wars mash-up image to social media, and it turns out it was actually a screenshot from a trailer he’s been working on entitled Dark Side Knight v Superjedi: Dawn of the Alliance, which he’s now released online; check it out here…

If rumours are to be believed, we may also get a glimpse of Snyder’s next DC project Justice League, with talk that a trailer could be attached to next week’s release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. »

The 16 Best Breakthrough TV Performances of 2016

7 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Riz Ahmed, “The Night Of

The British actor had a small role in “Nightcrawler” on the big screen, but he makes a huge splash on HBO’s anthology drama as Nasir “Naz” Khan, the young man whose night out with a captivating woman goes awry when he discovers her stabbed and he’s accused of her murder. Ahmed is hypnotic in his stillness and silences, but one look at his expressive eyes, and it’s clear that Naz is taking everything in as he learns to navigate the world of prison politics and legal strategy. One can’t help to root for him because he’s clearly innocent… isn’t he? Therein lies Ahmed’s genius, his ability to play both sides so that the viewer oscillates between sympathy and dread that we have gotten it wrong. We can’t wait to see what he does in the Star Wars universe for “Rogue One. »

Coming Distractions: Star-crossed, royal lovers inhabit A United Kingdom trailer

7 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Though one might be tempted to roll their eyes at yet another Hollywood period piece romanticization of a real-life story of a couple on opposite ends of a racial divide, perhaps we should start building up our tolerance for films like A United Kingdom once again. After all, in a world where white nationalists are advising the president and even the casting of multi-ethnic actors in Star Wars movie is grounds for a boycott, every little bit of pushback has its value. Even when it’s got the sweeping cinematography and lush melodramatics of your average Merchant Ivory knock-off.

Directed by Amma Asante (Belle) from a script by Guy Hibbert (Eye In The Sky), David Oyelowo stars as Sir Seretse Khama, prince of Bechuanaland. As fate would have it, the future first president of Botswana falls into a star-crossed romance with a London office worker with the very British name »

Watch 'Rogue One' Star Riz Ahmed's Epic 'Star Wars' Rap on 'Fallon'

8 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Rogue One star Riz Ahmed has moonlighted as a rapper throughout his acting career. On Wednesday, he combined both interests in an epic Star Wars-themed freestyle on The Tonight Show. Using the show's random word generator, Ahmed was given three Star Wars words — "Yoda," "Darth Vader" and "Lando Calrissian" — to work into the verse.

"The beat's stripped back, like it's wearing a toga/ The Roots do a lot with a little just like Yoda," Ahmed rapped. He then worked in a couplet about a cheeky rendezvous between Jimmy Fallon »
