Take this one with a fairly large grain of salt, but Making Star Wars is reporting that the first Star Wars spinoff film will begin shooting soon at Pinewood Studios, meaning that it will overlap a bit with the production of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Here’s where it gets interesting, though. They go on to say that the film will revolve around Han Solo, and apparently, Aaron Paul is currently attached to one of the lead roles.
Of course, none of this has been confirmed by any official sources and as of now, it only exists as a rumor. In fact, a report from /Film a while back actually noted that the spinoff Would Not revolve around Han Solo, so who knows what’s really going on here. For now, the only things we can be sure of are that the film will be directed by Gareth Edwards »

Apart from showing off the Millennium Falcon and some aggressive Tie Fighters, director J.J. Abrams and the rest of the folks at Disney and Lucasfilm have avoided teasing the appearance of original trilogy castmembers in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. Those who follow Star Wars Episode 7 spoilers on the Internet are clued in to the return of Harrison Ford as Han Solo, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia and others, but the general public by and large has no clue.
A new reminder about those old friends not so long gone has leaked to the Internet during the past several days. It comes in the form of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Han Solo and Chewbacca concept art that, if accurate to the final production version of the characters, isn't too different from how we remembering last seeing the scoundrel »
Yo, B**ch! According to sources for Making Star Wars the first Star Wars standlone film, which will be directed by Gareth Edwards ("Godzilla") and written by Gary Whitta ("After Earth"), will focus on Han Solo. This is a contradiction to the report from Slash Film, a few months ago, that said Han would Not be involved in Edwards' film. Making Star Wars also said the film's working title (codename) is "Luminac Industrial Goods," production will overlap Rian Johnson's Star Wars VIII and looks like Aaron Paul ("Need For Speed") could be involved. He's best known for playing 'Jesse Pinkman' on AMC's Breaking Bad. Oh, and before anyone freaks out there is No information connecting Aaron Paul to the role of 'Han Solo.'

While searching for something to post on Movie Poster of the Day on Christmas Eve, I took a look at the poster for Bob Clark’s A Christmas Story, which I hadn’t paid much attention to before. On closer inspection I recognized it as a pretty perfect pastiche of Norman Rockwell, with its meticulous depiction of a domestic scene in medias res, and down to its details like its circular frame within a frame, its white background, and the parallel black lines mimicking the Saturday Evening Post masthead.
The association with, or subversion of, America’s favorite purveyor of whimsical Americana makes perfect sense in light of the poster’s tagline about the "Original, Traditional, One-Hundred-Percent, Red-Blooded, Two-Fisted, All-American Christmas” and the artist, Robert Tanenbaum, even took his parody a step further by signing his illustration in the style of Rockwell’s trademark stenciled signature.

While there is no evidence that he will be playing a younger version of Han Solo, it is rumored that Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is set to headline the Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off. This will be the first franchise movie made after Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and is believed to revolve around the space pirate and his co-pilot Chewbacca. Though, there is no confirmation on any of this from Disney or LucasFilm, and is only being considered a rumor for the time being.
Making Star Wars delivered the news, which they claim comes from a source that has already given them legitimate Star Wars: The Force Awakens set photos and other information. As often been rumored, It is believed that the first spinoff will revolve around Han Solo, though its doubtful that Aaron Paul will be playing that specific character. Making Star Wars »
For those who think James Bond has gotten a little too serious in his old age, “Kingsman: The Secret Service” brings the irreverence back to the British spy genre, offering a younger, streetwise variation on the 007 formula while gleefully pushing audiences’ favorite elements — sartorial taste, killer toys and cracked-out supervillains — to hyperbolic extremes. Based on Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’ 2012 comicbook series and directed by Matthew Vaughn in much the same pop, over-the-top style as his earlier “Kick-Ass,” Fox’s franchise-ready one-off at first poses as a more teen-friendly option, before taking a hard turn into decidedly R-rated territory.
For nearly three-quarters of its running time, “Kingsman” could pass as a flip PG-13 alternative to the increasingly gritty turn the genre has taken in the wake of Jason Bourne — a fact it acknowledges outright when debonair operative Harry Hart (Colin Firth) and cuckoo billionaire Richmond Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson) talk spy-movie aesthetics. »

In 5th place in our top 10 films of 2014? That'd be The Lego Movie. Here's why it's awesome...
Over the past few weeks, Den of Geek writers have been voting for their favourite films of the year. In 5th place? The Lego Movie. And here's why...
Everything about The Lego Movie takes you by surprise.
It’s a big corporation-funded effort that hates corporations. It’s based on a best-selling toy that comes with pages of detailed instructions, but it’s about the joy of throwing those instructions away. It’s a celebration of the creativity of the individual, but it makes a song of conformity, Everything is Awesome, so catchy that we all end up happily singing it. It tells us, in what must be the ultimate oxymoron, that absolutely every one of us is special. And it is brilliant.
But the strange thing is that it’s not even that innovative. »

In Big Eyes, Jason Schwartzman plays a typically Jason Schwartzman-ish character: he’s Ruben, the gallery owner who haughtily dismisses Walter and Margaret’s work. “Good God, it’s a movement,” he grumbles when the Keanes make it big without his help. But for all of Schwartzman’s experiences playing pompous types onscreen, Schwartzman stresses he’s not one in […]

Movie trailers give eager audiences a chance to see what a film might be like and decide whether or not it’s something they’re interested. It’s one of the biggest and most crucial aspects of any film’s marketing, and as the year draws to a close, I thought I’d take a look back at the best/most effective trailers released in 2014.
I love movie trailers! It’s one of the things I look forward to most on upcoming films, and I’ve always looked at them as an art form in and of themselves. Crafting a good trailer that’s effective and powerful is difficult, but when it works there’s nothing better. They can spark our interest, get our hearts racing, and even convince us to see something we originally had no interest in. As such, I enjoy looking back at the various trailers throughout »

Despite the lack of a major British tentpole release like Skyfall or Harry Potter, 2014 was still a good year for U.K. film. Teen comedy The Inbetweeners 2 followed on the success of the franchise's first outing of fart jokes and sexual references to become the U.K. box office’s second-biggest title of the year with $55 million, just $1 million short of The Lego Movie. Meanwhile, the new Star Wars movie, which was shot in the U.K., drew global buzz, with its first trailer released late in the year. The Brits put in another solid showing

Making a trailer is never an easy feat, regardless of the film being promoted. Nearly everyone has a story of a flawed trailer that does the opposite of its job, whether it’s by giving away the entire story of the film being promoted, or by poorly using a song. However, a memorable trailer can detach itself from the film it’s tied to to become its own creation, something to be admired on its own merits. Below are the 30 best trailers released in 2014, a selection that includes everything from Westerns to Horror, proving that any movie is capable of producing a good trailer.
30) The Homesman international trailer #1
This trailer wastes no time drawing the viewer in, using distant landscape shots to establish the harshness of the land, emphasised by the way the humans appear particularly tiny. The score adds to the effect, setting the stage for the plot of the story to get introduced. »

Clank-clank. That sound you hear is the cinematic dumpster carrying out all the rotten films of 2014. For every Boyhood, there was Jersey Boys. . . and a Girl on Fire in Mockingjay who spent her time filming war propaganda in a bunker. So before we get excited about all the possibilities for 2015 (did you hear about the new Star Wars?), here's a nod to the flicks that made Us wince, squirm, eye-roll. . . and check our iPhone mid-screening to see Kim Kardashian's new [...] »
