Scott Foundas: Well, the cat is really out of the bag now. After weeks of intense blogosphere speculation about the fall festival season and palate-whetting gala announcements from the New York Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival kicked things into high gear this morning when it announced more than 40 titles that will comprise the festival’s Gala and Special Presentations categories come September. It’s a typically starry list, full of A-list names in front of and behind the camera, some very obvious Oscar bait, and a few Toronto stalwarts to satisfy the requisite quota of local Canadian talent, including Atom Egoyan, who makes a bid for a comeback (after the career-pummeling one-two of “Devil’s Knot” and “The Captive”) with “Remember,” starring Christopher Plummer as a Holocaust survivor trying to track down the former Nazi guard responsible for murdering his family.
Egoyan’s film is listed by the »

One Star Wars fan has gone to great lengths to show how much the beloved film series has changed over the years.

With each home video release, Lucas made alterations, some more noticeable than others. YouTuber Mercelo Zuniga has put together a definitive guide to the changes in an hour-long series of videos.

Sherlock actor Jonathan Aris may have landed a role in the Star Wars Anthology movie from director Gareth Edwards. Star Wars: Rogue One was recently added to Aris' bio page over at Spotlight, an official site actors use as a resume, and apparently he'll be playing a character named "Senator Jebel." Although it has since been removed from his page, BBC's Lizo Mzimba... Read More »

During the San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel announced that The Dark Lord of the Sith is set to headline a big crossover between the publisher’s Star Wars books entitled Star Wars: Vader Down, and thanks to ComicBook we’ve got a look at the first two covers from the event…
Meanwhile, Marvel has also revealed that it expects to shift between 225,000 and 250,000 copies of the first collected edition of the main Star Wars title – which is a huge number compared to the usual Marvel trade paperbacks, which sell between 30,000 and 50,000.
“When Star Wars #1 was released at the beginning of the year we were thrilled at the reception and the record-setting sales numbers. Once again, Star Wars continues to skyrocket the Marvel name even higher with the anticipated pre-order print-run between 200K and 250K units for Star Wars Vol 1 Tpb,” said David Gabriel, Svp Print, Sales and Marketing. “This is an unheard of number, »

When an animated film based on 1988’s graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke was announced at Comic-Con this year, the majority of fans instantly decided that they wanted to see Mark Hamill (Star Wars) voice The Joker in the film. Even Mark Hamill himself kept his “fingers crossed” for the role.
According to Collider, Hamill has not only been officially cast as the film’s Joker, but he has already recorded all of his voice acting as well.
While Luke Skywalker may always be Hamill’s most iconic role, The Joker is a not-too-distant second. He has voiced the character for numerous Batman-related projects over the years, including the incredibly popular Batman: Arkham video game trilogy (Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Knight), Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman: The Animated Series. In fact, the actor has been playing the character since 1993.

A little bit of fresh Star Wars casting news for you here. Jonathan Aris, an actor best known for playing Anderson in the Sherlock episode The Empty Hearse has become the latest addition to Gareth Edwards' upcoming Star Wars movie.
Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One is set to start filming in the UK in the next couple of months, and according to his Spotlight page (effectively his online curriculum vitae, to be used by casting agents), Aris has landed the role of Senator Jebel in the upcoming movie.
No official confirmation has been forthcoming, nor do we expect it to be for some time. Here's the snapshot of Aris' Spotlight page, »
It's news to nobody that the original Star Wars trilogy is impossible to (legally) get hold of right now. Whilst there have been rumours that Disney is looking to put the original theatrical cuts of Star Wars out on Blu-ray, we've seen nothing substantive on that, and the rumours have quietened down in recent times.
Currently, the versions of the Star Wars movies that are available on Blu-ray are further digitally altered versions of the Special Editions that first surfaced in the 1990s. But they've undergone a few additional changes ever since then.
With production set to begin very soon on Disney and LucasFilm's Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, the BBC reports that Sherlock actor Jonathan Aris has joined the cast. The actor's Spotlight profile, a website where actors and filmmakers can post their resumes, revealed that he is playing "Senator Jebel" in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. That listing was later removed from his page, so it's unclear if this is the confirmed character or not.
If, in fact, the actor has signed on for the Star Wars anthology movie, he will join a cast that includes Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed, Sam Claflin, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn and Forest Whitaker. The story centers on a group of Rebel Alliance soldiers who embark on a mission to steal plans for the original Death Star. The plot is set between the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and »
Ah, emojis... you love 'em, you hate 'em, and you can't stop using them. Emojis work because they force us to think more visually and express ourselves with imagery, which is part of the reason why they're so addictive. It's fun to see why our friends and family use emojis and how they use them (and why they shouldn't be using them -- stop sending me random flower-puppy emoji combos, mom), and you can't help but break out a fist-bump whenever Star Wars introduces a new set of emojis on Twitter. I mean, c'mon. How would you describe your favorite movie using only emojis? While in Vienna, Austria attending the premiere of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation for Fandango, I asked Simon Pegg (who plays computer genius Benji...

During the world premiere of Justice League: Gods and Monsters at Comic-Con, Bruce W. Timm revealed that the next DC Universe Original Movie will be an adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke. He also announced that the animated movie will feature, "an original 15-minute prologue that helps set up the story, giving even longtime fans something new to look forward to." No voice cast members were announced at the time, but today Collider reports that Mark Hamill has signed on to voice The Joker.
The actor revealed on his own Twitter page earlier this month that he had his "fingers crossed" for the opportunity to come back and voice The Joker. The actor had previously voiced the nefarious villain in Batman: The Animated Series and the Batman: Arkham video game series. While unconfirmed by the studio, this report reveals that the actor has already started recording his voice work for Batman: The Killing Joke, »

Fans rejoice! Mark Hamill will indeed provide the voice for The Joker in DC's animated take on Alan Moore's The Killing Joke, which is due out next year. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor had already expressed interest in reprising the iconic role for the movie, but sources have confirmed to Collider that it's definitely going to happen - in fact, word is he's already recorded his voice acting!

Have you ever wondered exactly how many changes Lucasfilm made to the original “Star Wars” trilogy during the special editions? Marcelo Zuniga has. From the big changes like Han shooting first and Jabba’s palace turning into a music video to tiny changes you probably didn’t even register, Zuniga has created a compilation of Every change to the original trilogy from 1977 to 2011. Some scenes have changed multiple times over the years. Sequences that were cut altogether are added back in or stitched together to create a hybrid. Extra shots are added. Exposition is changed. Backgrounds are extended, CGI added, characters revived from the cutting room floor or regulated to the waste bin of yesteryear. It’s all here. If you’ve got an hour — or 15 minutes here and there — take a journey through the years below! “Star Wars: A New Hope” Part One - Opening credits to Jabba threatens Han. »

The movie, based on the Graeme Simsion novel, centers on a socially awkward genetics professor who devises a science-based survey to find the perfect mate — only to see those theories splintered when he meets the spontaneous Rosie Jarman (played by Lawrence), who possesses the opposite qualities.
Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, who teamed on “(500) Days of Summer,” have revised Simsion’s adaptation of the novel. “The Lego Movie” co-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were initially interested, but have opted to take on Disney’s Han Solo “Star Wars” standalone movie.
Paramount announced Monday that it will release Linklater’s baseball comedy — formerly titled “That’s What I’m Talking About »

Discussions are just getting under way, but Linklater’s schedule is currently open and the studio has been looking to attract a big name for the gig ever since The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller left the project for a Star Wars spinoff focusing on a young Han Solo.
The adaptation of Graeme Simison’s novel centers on a genetics professor who’s more adept at navigating complex scientific data collections than his social life. When he comes up with a scientific survey designed to find him his perfect mate, the professor believes he’s sidestepped the risks that come with dating. His world gets shaken up, however, when he falls hard for a woman named Rosie »

As we're only a week or so away from Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One going into full production, it shouldn't be much of a surprise to hear more about casting. Today brings word that Sherlock actor Jonathan Aris has joined up as a Senator in the film. Come inside to learn more.
Technically speaking, this is a rumor at the moment, as Disney/Lucasfilm Still can't talk about Rogue One until the new Mission Impossible movie hits theaters, but in all likelihood this is legitimate. The BBC spotted the information on Jonathan Aris' Spotlight Page. The site is essentially an online CV for actors/agents people to use and connect, so it's a pretty official thing, people wouldn't want to lie on. Plus the site was pretty spot on with casting news just prior to The Force Awakens starting up production. So there's precedent for this being the real thing. »
