Watch: Adrenalized Super Bowl Trailer For ‘Furious 7’ Races Online

2 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Director James Wan might be new to the “Fast And Furious” franchise, but for “Furious 7” he was all for upping the stakes of mayhem and pandemonium. "We threw cars out of the back of a plane, no joke," Wan, the filmmaker behind low-budget horrors like "Saw," "Insidious" and “The Conjuring" explained to the L.A. Times just a few days ago. "We had skydivers photographing these cars as they were falling down. It's as insane as it sounds." Yep, in case you missed the inaugural trailer for “Furious 7,” it’s nutso; an adrenaline junkie’s delight and its actually kind of easy to see why some cinephiles adore the visceral and balletic camera choreography behind these films. And like “Mad Max: Fury Road” and the new “Star Wars” films, there seems to be a return to practical, in-camera action and effects and a minimal amount of green screen »

Watch: Super Bowl Trailer For Brad Bird's 'Tomorrowland' Starring George Clooney & Britt Robertson

2 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With Disney busy cranking out movies from the Marvel machine, doing live-action reboots of their animated classics, and busy preparing years and years worth of "Star Wars" movies, it's nice to know they still have room for original movies. Especially when it's a movie from someone like Brad Bird. The director behind "The Incredibles," "Ratatouille," and "Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol" has a futuristic new flick on the way, and details have been served out in small portions thus far. But today we get another peek with a big game day spot. George Clooney and Britt Robertson are the leads in this tale, co-written by Bird and Damon Lindelof, about the unlikely pairing of older scientist and a teenage girl, and the mysterious, titular place. Here's the official synopsis:  From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s riveting, mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” starring Academy Award® winner George Clooney. Bound by a. »

Star Wars #1 Darth Vader Comic Cover Art by Greg Horn

9 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've got another spectacular piece of comic book cover art for Star Wars #1 created by artist Greg Horn. He also created another awesome variant piece featuring Luke Skywalker that you can see here. The art was posted on his Facebook page with a description and praise of another new color that he has created, much like the Attack on Titan art that he released last year. Here's an explanation about the color.

Greg Horn has done it again. Following up on his astounding invention of a never-before-seen color early in 2014, the superstar artist one-ups himself, revealing an entirely new chromatic range of hues in his new Darth Vader #1 cover for Marvel Comics. The new tints and tones are collectively called Pewvers, reproducing what the artist says is “all the colors between pewter and silver”. Physicist Edward Reich comments, “Mr. Horn’s achievements are simply unexplainable to modern science…to invent one color, »

5 must-watch February cinema releases: 50 Shades of Grey, Selma

17 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

February is front-loaded with must-watch movies with four of our five selections for the month all opening on the same day. And what a diverse mix it is - Fifty Shades of Grey sits alongside Selma and Shaun the Sheep, while there's also an eagerly-awaited Wachowskis offering and the much-discussed comedy that almost brought down Sony Pictures.

Digital Spy rounds up the five films you have to see this February...

1. Jupiter Ascending

Release date: February 6

Why you should see it: The Wachowskis' output post-The Matrix might be largely hit and miss, but whenever the siblings have something new on offer it's always worth seeking out on the biggest screen possible. Jupiter Ascending, an epic space opera starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, promises to deliver a sci-fi blockbuster that's been touted as a mix of Star Wars and The Matrix.

2. The Interview

The 100 Greatest Nintendo Games Pt. 1

21 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Nintendo celebrated its 125th Anniversary last year, with the company founded on 23rd September 1889 in Kyoto, where its headquarters remain. The company has had an extraordinary history, originally producing handmade handful playing cards and several small niche businesses (including a cab service and luxury hotels), but since 1977, Nintendo has grown into one of the world’s most prolific and beloved video game makers.

Nintendo became a household name outside of Japan in 1985 with the release of the Nintendo Entertainment System. The best-selling gaming console of its time, the Nes helped revitalize the Us video game industry following the video game crash of 1983. Nintendo has since been the most enduring and influential company in the medium and its consoles, branding and innovative game achievements have given the company a momentous status in popular culture. And so 30 years after the Nes hit North American shores, we’ve decided to compile a list »

20 Bonkers Classic Comics Adverts You Won’t Believe

31 January 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Flickr

The worst kept secret in comics is that comics themselves don’t actually make a whole lot of money. Back in the Golden Age funnybooks would sell upwards of millions of copies per issue (well, at least the big names like Batman and Superman did); nowadays, a “besteller” manages to shift something like a hundred thousand issues. Unless it’s an outlier like Star Wars #1.

Which means that, for the most part, comic book publishers are subsidised by adverts. Well, adverts and blockbuster movie adaptations. That’s why roughly 25% of your average 32-page comic will be comprised of adverts. Most of which will involve corporate synergy of some description, or at least things the target audience are interested in.

Ad agencies have got their comic book game down in the 21st century, but it was not always so. Before car companies and TV channels put down cash for those precious interstitial pages, »

10 Major Star Wars Characters Who Didn’t Really Do Anything

31 January 2015 9:10 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lucasfilm

In the history of motion pictures, rarely has a single franchise established so many iconic and enduring characters as Star Wars. Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Rick Deckard, Bob Falfa and all the others became famous international screen stars off the back off this ground-breaking collection of films.

And if you’re willing to overlook the quite obvious fact that, aside from the first two movies, the entire franchise is basically a garish, nonsensical pile of toss then it just reaffirms how beloved and popular the Star Wars characters have turned out to be. That’s right: despite the majority of these movies being the visual equivalent of a mental breakdown, the familiar faces within this galaxy far, far away have endured with an almost reassuring popularity.

Interestingly though, it shouldn’t escape the more eagle-eyed of you that throughout this violent bunch of children’s films, some of our »

For our last battle, we asked you to choose between the trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World, and Terminator: Genisys. Despite being the shortest of the bunch, our first glimpse of J.J. Abrams' return to the galaxy far, far away mopped the floor with the other two! Will one of these three trailers come out on top by such a landslide? I know who my money's on, but vote away and let us know your reasons below. »

Hot Toys Star Wars Interrogator Droid

31 January 2015 6:03 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

"And now, your Highness, we will discuss the location of your hidden Rebel base."

Hot Toys is going Star Wars crazy, and they've been releasing a ton of extremely cool Star Wars 1/6th scale action figures, and the Darth Vader figure will come with the perfect companion piece. It's the Interrogator Droid that the Sith Lord used on Princess Leia. I honestly never thought I'd see a Hot Toys collectible of this thing. I guess we should never underestimate the force of Hot Toys. Who knows what we'll see next! This goes to show that anything can happen.

Hey Star Wars fans, we have a great news to share with you all! We are delighted to reveal the latest prototype of the Interrogator Droid, the “frightening” accessory for the Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope: 1/6th scale Darth Vader Collectible Figure. »

'Star Wars 7' to Include Jabba the Hutt's Crime Family?

30 January 2015 5:06 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been a hot minute since we've actually heard any good rumors about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as the Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off gears up for production this spring. While it was earlier reported that Disney and Lucasfilm may be courting Michael Fassbender to play Boba Fett in that sci-fi solo adventure for the bounty hunter (not confirmed), we're now hearing that J.J. Abrams may have landed a more sinister presence for his own film, which kick starts a new trilogy. While Jabba the Hutt will have been dead for nearly thirty years at the start of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it looks like other members of the Hutt syndicated crime family will actually be involved in the storyline.

The Hutts are a family of gangster who reside on Tatooine, and they have ties that reach all the way back to Anakin Skywalker, »

25 years of Disney: How Darth Vader, Iron Man, Elsa and Pixar's geniuses helped the company conquer the world (again)

30 January 2015 2:30 PM, PST | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

We're only a month into 2015 but already the competition for the year's biggest movie looks like a two-horse race. Will it be Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the second assembly of Marvel's all-star superhero team? Or will it be Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the hugely anticipated third coming of George Lucas's space gospel? Both movies are expected to break a billion dollars at the box office, but one major player doesn't much care which one wins the race: the Walt Disney Company. Technically, both movies are theirs. »

6 Great Insights From George Lucas at the Sundance Film Festival

30 January 2015 2:20 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It may sound weird now, but when George Lucas made "Star Wars," he was taking a big risk. In Park City for the Sundance Film Festival yesterday, Lucas joined Robert Redford and moderator Leonard Maltin for a panel discussion entitled "Visions of Independence." While Lucas' name may be synonymous with commercial success, he made a number of salient points that reflected his independent past. Here are some of the highlights. Check out Matlin's recollections from moderating the event here. Lucas was initially opposed to commercial cinema.Initially inspired by the experimental film scene in San Francisco during the late 1960s, Lucas had no interest in making big studio projects. "I wasn’t really into dramatic filmmaking at all," he said. "We hated the establishment. I didn’t like the studios. I was very much against all that." Some of that skepticism is still with him today.

Lando Will Be Back for More Star Wars Rebels Adventures

30 January 2015 12:38 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Billy Dee Williams made his return to the galaxy far, far away recently in an episode of Star Wars Rebels, in which he reprised his role of Lando Calrissian much to the delight of Star Wars fans.  While some have assumed Lando could pop up in future episodes of the animated series, I got the scoop directly from the man himself.  You haven't seen the last of Lando.  

A few weeks ago, the crew from Star Wars Rebels met up with smooth-talking Lando Calrissian (in the episode titled "Idiot's Array") and cool things happened.  It was a great episode and has been the case with all their cameos on the show so far, was integrated nicely and fit within the world they've established.  Easily the most exciting thing was hearing the man himself, Billy Dee Williams reprise his iconic character for the series.
