Berlin: ‘Tracer’ Keeps Korea’s Cj on Track of Success in Vietnam

7 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Featuring a female detective who infiltrates a dangerous gang in order to get close to the kingpin, “Tracer” is typical of how contemporary films from Vietnam are becoming more commercially savvy, challenging stereotypes and engaging record audience numbers in the still emerging country.

The thriller is being launched at the Efm in Berlin by Korea’s Cj Entertainment, which is handling international sales and which will release the picture in Vietnam in April.

Cj’s theatrical exhibition giant sister company Cj-cgv became a top player in Vietnam in 2011 when it acquired the largest and most modern cinema chain in the country. Since then the box office has expanded to over $100 million per year and local films have flourished alongside certain Hollywood blockbusters.

In response to growing competition and the expansion of the market, Cj has become increasingly involved in Vietnamese distribution – certain Korean-language titles do well – while also taking the more laborious local production route. »

It's official! Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is getting it's own Force Friday. The 2nd annual event was officially announced at Toy Fair 2016. Just like last September, when the first Force Friday unleashed a tsunami of toys and other Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise into stores, this next epic event will be tailored around the arrival of the first-ever Star Wars spinoff, which hits theaters in December.

This epic event is going to hit retailers hard on September 30, 2016. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story revolves around a group of rebel soldiers who go on an impossible mission to steal plans for the original Death Star. On Force Friday, all major retailers will open their store and online doors at 12 am sharp, allowing fans to get their hands on all the latest action figures, books, Legos and whatever else is being planned for this galactic adventure.

Berlin Film Review: ‘The Patriarch’

12 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Seen through the eyes of a Maori teen on the brink of manhood, “The Patriarch” plays like a classic Western as it proudly expands the still-limited canon of essential films about New Zealand’s tribal people, telling of a young man who dares to stand up to both his domineering grandfather and The Man at a time when equality and respect were in short supply for natives. Adapted from “The Whale Rider” author Witi Ihimaera’s most personal novel, “Bulibasha: King of the Gypsies,” this well-crafted (and wisely retitled) 1960s family saga marks a return to Maori roots for “Once Were Warriors” helmer Lee Tamahori, who went off and made a series of blockbuster action movies, including “Die Another Day” and “The Edge,” before landing in director jail with “The Devil’s Double.” What better way to regroup than by tackling such a sincere homage to his homeland, which blends »

Batman v Superman, Mystery & Over Promotion

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Samuel Brace on Batman v Superman, mystery and over promotion…

Mystery is a great thing. Mystery is often the seed of both wonder and the desire to understand. What we don’t know, what we haven’t figured out, is what leads us to learn more. This mystery, this lack of knowledge, is the very thing that drives us to turn up. When we’ve seen all the cards, once the mystery is revealed — even just a little — that desire to know, the excitement of the revelation, isn’t quite as powerful, sometimes it keeps us away completely. We as people, have an unrelenting desire to consume knowledge. We are determined to know that which we don’t. After all, mysteries are there to be solved. When it comes to film or fiction in general, there is no greater incentive to show up than the allure of the nebulous eventually becoming definite. »

The Force Awakens Apparently Syncs Perfectly With Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon

13 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Pink Floyd’s album Dark Side Of The Moon is arguably one of the best rock albums of all time. In addition to the transformative and alternative nature of the album itself, Dark Side is also known for having a strange connection to the world of film. It was discovered decades ago that playing the album whilst watching The Wizard of Oz would result in 40 minutes of perfectly synced and eerily appropriate coincidence. Well, it appears that this is also the case for the latest film in the Star Wars saga.  A reddit user called knnl somehow got his hands on a home copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and noticed a ton of crazy coincidences when experimenting with playing Dark Side Of The Moon. You apparently have to start the album after the famous Star Wars crawl, where the First Order’s shuttles fly over »

Cool Stuff: We’re Finally Getting the Lego Hoth Playset ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ Deserves

14 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

There are a slew of incredible Lego Star Wars sets out there, but for some reason The Empire Strikes Back hasn’t really properly been given its due diligence in building brick form. Specifically, with the exception of a Snowspeeder and At-at, the playsets recreating scenes from the opening battle on Hoth have been lackluster at […]

First Luke Skywalker 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Toy Revealed

14 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Today kicks off New York Toy Fair 2016, and that brings along with it a sneak peek at the first ever Luke Skywalker toy based on his likeness in the blockbuster hit sequel Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Leading up to the movie's release in December, Luke was the only old school character not included in any of the promotional material. And two months after the release of the movie, we have yet to see any toys based on his new appearance. Until now.

The first Force Awakens Luke Skywalker figure is actually part of the incredibly popular Funko Pop line. These vinyl figurines are a phenomenon unto themselves. And over the last few years, we've seen plenty of characters introduced as part of their Star Wars line-up. Later this year, we'll be getting another wave of figures and bobble heads directly based on those characters seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. »

'Star Wars': Does Han Solo Have a Brother, and Is It One of These Guys?

12 February 2016 6:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, a new report claimed that Disney and LucasFilm had narrowed down their final candidates to play the iconic Han Solo in their upcoming Star Wars Anthology adventure. The finalists included Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Jack Reynor, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Emory Cohen and Blake Jenner, who were part of a much larger field of candidates who were mentioned in a separate report from December. Today we have a new report from Star Wars News Net that claims two more actors are up for the role, who weren't previously mentioned, Taron Egerton and Alden Ehrenreich. But there may be an unexpected twist that no one saw coming!

Last year, Taron Egerton mentioned that he would love to play Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo, but he wasn't among the several actors mentioned who had auditioned for the role. Others who reportedly tested to »

12 February 2016 5:37 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

What happened before Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Those events are about to be recounted in humorous fashion. This may come as a surprise to many, but we're actually getting a prequel TV series that reveals the events leading up to the destruction of the Starkiller Base. Though be warned, we're not sure how accurately these events are being depicted.

Disney Xd has released the first clip from this series of shorts. It's called Lego Star Wars: The Resistance Rises. And the first episode is titled Poe to the Rescue. The animated series will feature popular heroes and villains from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While we'll have to wait for the premiere on Monday, February 15 (8:00 p.m. Est) on Disney Xd, this 90 second clip gives us a good idea of what we can expect to see.

Maz Kanata Finally Gets a 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Action Figure

12 February 2016 3:02 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been in theaters for almost two full months, and Hasbro hasn't even begun to scratch the surface on its action figure line. There are quite a few prominent characters from this sci-fi sequel that haven't been given their own toy yet. But that is about to change in a big way. And one key player in the story is finally getting her own action figure. But there's a catch!

Yes, to get the coveted Maz Kanata action figure, you're going to have to shell out a few more bucks. Because she is only available as part of an exclusive play set. The diminutive force-sensitive bar owner comes dressed in her Castle fatigues. The toy is being unveiled as part of New York's annual Toy Fair convention, which is taking place this week, starting Saturday, February 13. Lupita Nyong'o plays the 1,000 year-old mystic, and the release »

Star Wars: New Troopers, New Spaceships

12 February 2016 12:30 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This is a column about speculation, spoilers, rumors, hearsay and analyzing the Star Wars Universe. Spoilers, real or imagined, might be found within.   

We’ve transitioned out of the period where Rogue One is shooting and into the period where Star Wars: Episode VIII has begun. And, in a cryptic fiscal statement from Dinsey, Bob Iger says that Star Wars: Episode IX has started production as well.

When talking about Rogue One, Iger said "This is the first of a set of planned stand-alone stories...we're already in preproduction on our next one, for release in May of 2018." Which, of course, is Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. Or whatever You’Re calling it, that’s what I’m calling it. The whole “A Star Wars Story” thing is still very silly. It’s a very silly way to work around taking the episode title out of the saga stories. »

Disney Xd has announced that a new animated Star Wars comedy series will be joining Star Wars Rebels this Spring/Summer with the premiere of Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, which will introduce all-new heroes and villains in exciting adventures with many familiar Star Wars characters.
