Why You Shouldn’t Care Where Kylo Ren’s Scar Is

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway takes aim at those getting worked up over a slight change in make up…

I’m a huge Star Wars fan; I love the films, I’ve been known to defend elements of the prequels, and I’ll not really trust anyone who proudly boasts that they’ve never seen any of the films.

Having said that, I’m failing to get worked up in any way about the fact that, compared to The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren’s scar has moved in the trailer for The Last Jedi. Frankly, 90% of the people who watched and enjoyed The Force Awakens won’t notice, and if you did notice, you probably have too much time on your hands. If it ruins your enjoyment of the film, then you definitely have too much time on your hands.

It’s a fantasy film set a long time ago in a galaxy, »

Oscar Isaac talks Star Wars: The Last Jedi and filming with Carrie Fisher

16 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Oscar Isaac was absent from Star Wars Celebration last weekend due to a scheduling conflict, the actor has taken the opportunity to discuss his upcoming return as Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Last Jedi during various promotional images for his new film The Promise.

“[Poe] will be challenged, in a very intense way that will reveal a lot more about his character,” he told Movieweb. “The characters that you know already: their specific character flaws or their weaknesses get tested. And out of that, I think, you get to see a bit more of who they are. The best way to learn about somebody is to see them in a crisis.”

Speaking to Business Insider, Isaac also talked about shooting an action scene with the late Carrie Fisher, stating that: “It was basically my first day [on set] and we did about 25 takes total. Half of them were on me and »

When You Really Get Down To It, Who was Luke Skywalker and What was Star Wars?

17 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

There are tons of fan theories out there on Star Wars and essentially every single one of its films.  Some we like to toy with and some we take pretty seriously.  I still think my favorite theory in all of Star Wars theories is the one about Jar Jar Binks actually being a Jedi.  It makes complete sense when you read it and you’ll appreciate Phantom Menace a little more.  While the way he talks is unbelievably irritating, knowing that just about everything he does is front for his master abilities makes it kind of cool. Speaking of theories, my

Avatar Sequel Release Dates Delayed Until 2020

17 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Some people truly believe that director James Cameron keeps pushing back the release dates on his four upcoming Avatar sequels, hoping the world implodes before he actually has to make them. Perhaps that is the case, as Avatar 2 has once again been delayed, with the other three subsequent sequels also getting new release dates. We were originally supposed to see a new Avatar movie in 2013. That won't happen until 2020.

James Cameron and his crew gathered to announced the new release dates on Facebook. Last we heard, Avatar 2 was keeping its 2018 release date, with Fox promising that wouldn't change. Unfortunately, they were unable to keep that promise. As Avatar 2 will now hit theaters on December 18, 2020. And it will immediately be followed a year later by Avatar 3, which now arrives on December 17, 2021. There will be a break before the final two movies, with Avatar 4 premiering three years »

Did Alden Ehrenreich Edge Out Harry Styles for Han Solo?

17 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The upcoming “Star Wars” standalone film about young Han Solo almost had a major meeting of fans: those in love with the franchise, and those in love with Harry Styles. The pop star, formerly of the boy band One Direction, hinted that he read for the part that wound up in the hands of “Hail, Caesar!” star Alden Ehrenreich. Styles appeared this weekend as a guest of popular UK chat show host Graham Norton, where the men played a game called Dead Pan. It required a tight close up of Styles’ face as Norton read various tabloid headlines written about him. »

Rian Johnson Shuts Down Claims Of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Copying Empire Strikes Back

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a great film. No one can deny that. It introduced a whole new generation to that galaxy far, far away and also relaunched the franchise on the big screen in a wholly satisfying manner. However, longtime fans will have no doubt noticed the many similarities between the J.J. Abrams-directed flick and A New Hope, especially when it came to the general plot beats and themes running throughout the movie.

Now, with Star Wars: The Last Jedi looming on the horizon, people are starting to wonder if Rian Johnson will follow a similar path and draw heavily from The Empire Strikes Back. After all, it’d be tempting to do so, given that film’s status as one of the greatest sequels ever made. And with the teaser trailer for the upcoming Star Wars movie depicting something a lot darker and more somber than The Force Awakens, »

Fox Gives All 4 Avatar Sequels Release Dates, For Reals This Time

21 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

James Cameron's long gestating Avatar movie sequels have seen their fair share of release dates over the years, but today, 20th Century Fox has announced a slew of New dates for the films, stretching all the way out to 2025.  Come inside to learn more!

I've been reporting on Avatar 2 release dates virtually since the creation of this website (back when we originally called ourselves TheMoviePool)...so it's been a long and winding road.  Hell, just last April, almost exactly a year ago, Fox made a similar announcement where they gave us release dates out to 2023, along with the announcement of a 5th film.  In the time since then progress seems to have actually been made, with filming set to begin on Avatar 2 this Summer.  

While things are moving forward, it's not moving quick enough, so Fox has set all New release dates for movie-goers to mark on »

Harry Styles Doesn’t Deny That He Auditioned to Be the New Han Solo in Star Wars

21 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Harry Styles acted coy when asked if he auditioned for Han Solo in an upcoming Star Wars movie.

On The Graham Norton Show, Styles played along with the host’s “Warren Beatty Deadpan Challenge,” in which he would try to verify wacky headlines about the hunky singer, including having a “sexual relationship” with Barack Obama, by judging his reaction.

Dressed in red and black trousers, Styles pursed his lips about the potential audition, not conclusively confirming or denying the rumor. Immediately, Norton exclaimed, “That might be a yes!” to which Styles smiled and swatted away.

It would not be his first acting foray. »

Jar Jar Binks to Return in Star Wars Battlefront 2 Game?

21 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During Star Wars Celebration, the new video game Battlefront 2 was unleashed. And it showed off various new characters, three story generations, and some single player action that was sorely missing from the original outing. While Yoda and Darth Maul both made their presence known, one character was suspiciously absent, even though the game delves into the Phantom Menace era. Where was Jar Jar Binks? Fans are clamoring to know whether or not everyone's favorite (or most despised) Gungan, the infamous Jar Jar Binks, makes an appearance as a playable character in the game as well.

In a new interview with Euro Gamer, primary developers Steve Blank and Matt Webster were quite coy regarding Jar Jar's presence. It sounds like we will probably be getting a playable version of Jar Jar that fans can put through all kinds of holy hell. But the team behind the new game aren't confirming that yet. »

Oscar Isaac Remembers Intense Star Wars 8 Scene with Carrie Fisher

21 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While we're still unsure whether or not General Leia will come face-to-face with her son Kylo Ren after he killed Han Solo, or if she'll reunite with her twin brother Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi, one thing is for certain. Leia and Poe will have a few scenes together. In a recent interview, Oscar Isaac, who plays ace X-Wing fighter Poe Dameron, opened up about his time spent on set with the late Carrie Fisher. And even though we don't really know much about Poe yet, these scenes shot between them should be intense and emotional for the audience.

Carrie Fisher's untimely passing last year had every Star Wars fan wondering if the beloved actress would ever return to the franchise. Fisher had already filmed her scenes for Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The question was whether she would be digitally recreated for Star Wars »

The Most Disappointing: Saw Gerrera in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

22 April 2017 6:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on Rogue One’s Saw Gerrera…

Disappointments are the product of anticipation. The more excited you are about something, the more likely it won’t live up to your expectations. Soaring heights soon turn to flaming fuselage. No one is going to be disappointed by The Fate of the Furious because not even fans of the franchise have high expectations. You may want to see the eighth Fast & Furious film, but I’m guessing there’s very little in the movie that wouldn’t deliver exactly what you were expecting. This is why franchises like Fast & Furious and Transformers never generate a lot of passion or anger. Sure, you might have been upset after seeing the original or Revenge of the Fallen, but after that you knew you were never going to get a remarkable Transformers movie with Michael Bay and his creative team at the helm.
