As Star Wars Celebration enters its final day the last big panel on the deck deals with the first "standalone" film. Producer Kathleen Kennedy, Lucasfilm's vice president of development Kiri Hart, and director Gareth Edwards took to the Celebration stage at the event to discuss what's being referred to as an "anthology film," and to reveal a brief teaser. We already knew that Star Wars: Rogue One would feature Felicity Jones in a lead role and had been circling Ben Mendelsohn for a part and that Alexandre Desplat would score the picture with Chris Weitz doing some work on the script that was originated by Gary Whitta. So what else did we learn from the Celebration panel?

Kennedy said they discussed the proper term for the films a lot. The stand-alone films were part of George Lucas’ idea. »

I'm not sure why Fox would choose to release a new Fantastic Four trailer on a Sunday afternoon, but I have to assume it's because director Josh Trank is going to be on the tips of everyone's tongues during the Star Wars Celebration as he was supposed tobe on hand to talk about the Star Wars spin-off film he's directing (then he didn't show up). That said, Fox has decided to make this trailer their big reveal as if offers great looks at all of the film's heroes including Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as The Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch and, yes, Jamie Bell as The Thing. Additionally, we're getting our first look at Toby Kebbell as Victor Domashev, aka Dr. Doom.

In one of those odd moments of synchronicity, just as fans were learning that Josh Trank would not be at the panel at Star Wars: Celebration where he was supposed to discuss his upcoming movie in the "Star Wars Anthology" series, the new trailer for "Fantastic Four" arrived online. This is the trailer where fans are finally going to get to see the things they've been curious about, and it gives some indication of what you can expect from the finished film. I'm still not sure what to think. The things I've been hearing about the film from source after source after source make me nervous, but there are things I like about this trailer. It's mainly just small things, interplay between the cast or the way they handle Reed's stretching as an effect, but that's all you can ever really take away from a trailer. More than anything, »
