Similarly to how the Battlefront of 2015 featured downloadable content based on Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One, in a neat usage of synergy, Dice’s upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II will include characters from The Last Jedi as part of the sequel’s ambitious plans to encompass all three eras of Disney’s galaxy far, far away.
One pre-order incentive for the licensed shooter allows early adopters to unlock exclusive themed looks and abilities upgrades for select Heroes, and thanks to a leaked image unearthed by Reddit, today heralds a peek at Rey and an unmasked Kylo Ren as they’ll appear in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

In my decade of writing on the internet I’ve seen more than my fair share movie and television themed bedrooms. Plenty of these bedrooms have come equipped with a Star Wars theme, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a “girls” themed bedroom integrate Star Wars so incredibly well. I quoted “girls” because for all I know boys like to have a pink room as well. I’m not here to judge. In fact I’d take a bedroom like this. The colors pop like crazy and the homemade Death Star wall decoration and Tie desk really stand out. The girl, Emmie,

Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams supposedly had some input on where the series would go in subsequent movies, but it sounds like The Last Jedi writer and director Rian Johnson isn’t getting that same opportunity. As reported by Comicbook.com, a fan recently asked Johnson on Twitter if he wrote a “story treatment” for Episode IX, and he responded by saying that he actually hasn’t been involved in writing for the sequel at all:
@mattpeto That’s old info, I haven’t been involved in writing IX.

This far away from the release of The Last Jedi, it’s hard to tell if this is a good or bad thing, but it’s probably not an indication that Disney lacks confidence in Johnson’s Star Wars movie. If anything, it probably just means that the studio now has ...

After announcing last year that the Chronicles of Narnia franchise will be "restarted" with the new movie The Silver Chair, the producers have finally found their director. Joe Johnston has signed on to direct this fantasy adventure, marking his first movie since the 2014 thriller Not Safe For Work. No cast members have been set at this time, but this story will feature characters from the original C.S. Lewis novels, who haven't been featured in any of the previous movies.
Variety broke the news today, which comes eight months after producer Mark Gordon joined forces with Sony's TriStar Pictures, eOne and The C.S. Lewis Company for this restart. David Magee came aboard to write the screenplay in 2013, although the studios haven't set a release date or a production start date at this time quite yet. Here's what producer Mark Gordon had to say about bringing Joe Johnston in to direct The Silver Chair. »
After suffering a major heart attack on the flight, she died a few days later at the age of 60, making her performance in the latest season of the U.K.-based series her final role.
“She and I are together in the sitting room, and she starts talking about a TV show that she’s watching called ‘My Children Are Schizophrenic,’ and that whole little ramble about the show was off the top of her head,” Horgan explains of the scene. “And every time she did it, we’d call cut and the whole place would crack up laughing.”

Rian Johnson will bring us his entry in the Star Wars universe this December from a script that’s been lauded by the likes of J.J. Abrams and others who’ve read it. That’s high praise, and Johnson’s work was supposedly continuing into the story treatment of Episode IX. Turns out that is no longer the case, as Johnson has confirmed he has done no work for the...

There’s something quite perfectly pitched about the release of The Circle. First, in a landscape overflowing with headlines proclaiming that “this is the Blank we need right now”, an adaptation of Dave Eggers’ cautionary tale about the dangers of a life consumed by an over-reliance on one’s digital footprint remains ever prescient. Second, it’s anchored by Emma Watson, coming off the back of the phenomenal success of Beauty and the Beast, and she’s joined by John Boyega, his first role since his charming breakout turn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Finally, it’s arriving on the edge of the summer season, aiming to engage our brains before they get pummeled into submission by a parade of shiny effects-driven epics »

With a different director from sequel to sequel, it would have been great synergy for Lucasfilm to get the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi to write the script treatment to its follow-up, Star Wars Episode 9. In fact, that’s what was reported back in June 2014, when it was announced that Rian Johnson […]

A billion dollars and some great reviews later, and Disney/Lucasfilm must be pretty delighted that John Knoll decided to pitch them the idea for a “Star Wars” spin-off that turned into last year’s blockbuster “Rogue One.” I mean, sure, you could have stuck the “A Star Wars Story” subtitle onto “Queen Of Katwe” and it probably would have made hundreds of millions of dollars, but “Rogue One” was a rare prequel and spin-off that felt truly satisfying, and was about as successful a launch to non-Skywalker stories within the universe as you could ask for.

Soon after the dust settled from The Force Awakens, and the Internet slowly began to pull itself together once more, J.J. Abrams was quoted as saying that the screenplay for The Last Jedi – then known as simply Star Wars: Episode VIII – was so good, so compelling, that he wish he had the chance to direct December’s upcoming sequel himself.
Of course, that onus has since been placed on Rian Johnson, director of Looper, Brick and various episodes of Breaking Bad. And though early rumors claimed Johnson had a hand in writing the script for Star Wars: Episode IX, the filmmaker took to Twitter earlier this week to set the record straight. First spotted by Cbm, one curious fan asked Rian Johnson if he penned an early treatment for Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow – the creative driving force behind Episode IX – to which he replied:

Ben Robins on Guardians of the Galaxy and its exploitation influences…
Exploitation is a bit of a nasty word no matter the context, and in the movie world, it usually means something cheap and in many cases, derivative. It’s never properly been defined, and doing so here without page after page of background would prove tough, but the term, in a nutshell, is usually used to describe low-brow ‘B-movies’ that rip-off or ‘exploit’ mainstream heavy-hitters. After Steven Spielberg’s Jaws there was Michael Anderson’s Orca, and Joe Dante’s Piranha. After The Italian Job there was everything from Death Race 2000 to Vanishing Point (that was in itself, lovingly rejigged for Tarantino’s 2007 exploitation send-up Death Proof). They make just enough from the cult crowd but very rarely breach the dominant markets. Unless, of course, the film’s name is something stupid enough to go viral, like Sharknado. »

With the great critical success of Mad Max: Fury Road, it came as no surprise that there was a lot of talk of more adventures from George Miller’s universe. However, since then, we’ve not heard much else. In a recent interview Miller has revealed that there are plans in place for a trilogy saying, “We dug down deep into the subtext, the backstory of all the characters, and indeed the world…and without really thinking about it, we wrote two other screenplays just as part of the bible of the stories. Somewhere, if the planets align, there will be two other films.” Read more here.

Industrial Light & Magic’s John Knoll, who served as visual effects supervisor on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, also conceived the film's original story — and now he's at it again, telling The Hollywood Reporter that he’s “tinkering” with another Star Wars-related idea.
“I have another idea I’ve been tinkering with,” he said after participating on a Rogue One Super Session during the National Association of Broadcasters Show. “It’s maybe 75 percent there. I haven’t pitched it to [Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy]. It’s another Star Wars thing.”
