Now that the Rogue One: Scarif Dlc is available to Season Pass holders – expect the add-on to debut for all players on December 20 – developer Dice has reflected on the past, present and potential future of the rebooted Star Wars Battlefront series.
Chatting to Eurogamer, the studio’s producer Paul Keslin began by addressing the shooter’s mixed reception. When Battlefront touched down for consoles and PC late last year, early adopters bemoaned the lack of single-player campaign, with the general consensus being that Dice’s licensed title was a textbook example of style over substance. That being said, Keslin stressed that the developer has been keeping one ear to the ground ever since, and has spent the past 12 months introducing new content and gameplay mechanics to further enhance the experience.
“We’ve been listening to a lot of the feedback since launch and even post-launch as we’ve been adding new things. »

Wow! There have been some great trailers coming lately, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, Transformers: The Last Knight and Baywatch blowing up the Internet. But the latest offering from Marvel and Sony might just win the prize as best trailer of 2016. The first look footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming is simply, truly amazing. And it answers a lot of question.
The main one being that yes, Robert Downey Jr. will suit up as Iron Man to fly alongside Spidey as he swings through New York City. That money shot is saved for the very end, and it's worth the wait. Previous rumors claimed that Tony Stark would be taking on more of a mentor role, and many believed that Stark wouldn't be crawling inside his Iron Man armor. That's simply not the case.
But the coolest take away from this first Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer has to be the villains. While »
Like you guys, I'm a massive fan of all things comic book, fantasy, and sci-fi (why else do you think I do this for a living?). When it comes to stocking up on awesome gear related to everything from Doctor Strange to Star Wars, I always go to SuperHeroStuff.com, and this month, the Cbm team will once again be highlighting some cool items we've got our hands on from their awesome range of products. With Christmas now right around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to focus on the site's range of awesome holiday themed sweaters. Steve Rogers is by far my favourite member of The Avengers, and this sweater somehow manages to take the patriotic member of Earth's Mightiest Heroes and makes him festive! Throw in the awesome material and colour scheme, and it's a winner. Captain America Snowflakes Ugly Christmas Sweater Steve Rogers »
Did a group of Trump supporters slime “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” without the facts? The hashtag #DumpStarWars began Thursday morning with a group of conservative “Star Wars” fans declaring their intent to boycott the release of “Rogue One,” the upcoming standalone film that hits theaters Dec. 16. Twitter user Jack Posobiac, who is listed as the special projects director for a group called Citizens for Trump, claimed that “‘Star Wars’ writers rewrote and reshot ‘Rogue One’ to add in Anti Trump scenes calling him a racist.” Also Read: 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' -- Here's How the Death Star. »

Nearly a year after Star Wars: The Force Awakens lit up theaters, we're plunging back into the world of stormtroopers, rebels, and Jedi. With the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we'll meet new intergalactic badass Jyn Erso and follow her as she attempts to execute a top secret Rebel plan. With no planned sequel and some thematic richness behind the movie's name, it's clear that Rogue One will be a pretty big deal. As a sort of outlier, though, what purpose does it serve in the context of the other films? Is the story meant to be a prequel or sequel to the other episodes? Here's the deal: Rogue One's events take place sometime after Episode III and before Episode IV. This would mean it technically is a sequel to the second trilogy (Episode I, II, and III), but it's a prequel to the canonical Star Wars series (Episode IV, »

As Rogue One: A Star Wars Story nears its December 16 release date, one of the biggest questions fans have with regards to the film and its place within the Star Wars mythology is, well, where did all the Rogue One characters go after they stole those Death Star plans? Based on all the other Star Wars films that exist -- including the film that immediately follows Rogue One chronologically, A New Hope -- only a tiny fraction of the characters featured in Rogue One appear in future installments. Characters like Darth Vader and Mon Mothma show up in the subsequent film, but no one else does. So what gives? Is Rogue One going to end with an explanation as to why we don't see Jyn Erso...

This December’s release of “Rogue One”, the first “Star Wars” anthology film, zeroes in on the crew that stole the plans to the Death Star, focusing on the Erso family. While the story of Jyn and her father Galen will most certainly guide the narrative, one silent, constant character throughout the film will be the Death Star itself. Fans have seen the first Death Star in two particular states so far: Complete and fully functional in “A New Hope”, and at the very beginning of its construction in “Revenge of the Sith”. But what some viewers might not realize is just. »

It’s been a VFX season dominated by giants in a range of superhero, sci-fi and action-adventures. They include Mark Rylance’s 25-foot dream catcher in “The Bfg,” Christopher Walken’s King Louie in “The Jungle Book,” the heptapods from “Arrival,” the 7-foot K-2So droid from “Rogue One” and the Moon Beast and Skeleton from “Kubo and the Two Strings.”
Whittling down the preliminary list of 20 contenders to 10 for the VFX bake-off on January 7th won’t be easy. There is so much outstanding work. Yet the great hybrid achievement of Disney’s “The Jungle Book” makes it the favorite, and “Rogue One” offers a new, gritty “Star Wars” look that should provide serious consideration. Here’s a list of 10 prime contenders:
1. “The Jungle Book”

Much like last week, this weekend will be even a little lighter at the weekend box office as the studios make ready for the holiday rush, which begins next weekend with the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and WB's Collateral Beauty. As for this weekend, the lone new wide release is Paramount's holiday-themed comedy Office Christmas Party, while EuropaCorp's Miss Sloane and Focus' Nocturnal Animals each expand nationwide. Additionally, Lionsgate's Oscar hopeful La La Land will be released into five theaters before expanding next weekend while fellow awards season darling, Manchester by the Sea, continues to expand this weekend and could find itself in a tight race for a spot in the top ten. For the first time in some time it isn't clear cut as to what film will be taking the top spot at the box office. Disney's Moana would appear to be a strong »

Last year's blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced fans to a number of new heroes and villains in this galaxy far, far away, including Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and the nefarious Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson). We also got our first look at the one villain who is really pulling all the strings, the massive Supreme Leader Snoke, portrayed through motion capture by Andy Serkis. All of these characters will be returning in Star Wars 8, although it seems there will be some interesting changes when it comes to Supreme Leader Snoke.
In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we only saw Supreme Leader Snoke in the form of a massive hologram, in scenes where he's addresing both Kylo Ren and General Hux. Since we only saw him through a hologram, some fans theorized that it may only be the holographic projection that is so large, »
As if inspiring Batman to be a better hero and form the Justice League — not to mention, sacrificing himself to save humanity — wasn't enough to prove that Superman is the superhero of the year, director Zack Snyder has one final card to play: revealing that Kal-El of Krypton can bring balance to the Force.
Following up on earlier images that mashed-up his Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice with imagery from the Star Wars movies, Snyder took to social media service Vero to share a full trailer recasting the DC heroes as Jedi and Sith warriors.

With Rogue One nearly here, many are taking a look back at The Force Awakens, too often with a harsher eye than's needed. While there are some bad points to be made, Episode VII managed to succeed in the most crucial of areas that sets a precedent for all that's coming.
Things are often clearer in hindsight, as the thrill of the moment wears off, imperfections become more focused. This isn’t a bad thing, but in terms of the entertainment industry oftentimes it gets taken too far. Minor problems become focal points for full-scale takedowns and denouncements, while the good points are marginalized. This is especially true for major/beloved franchises wherein they’re so popular some people can’t seem to wait to knock them down a peg.
With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on the horizon, and preview footage garnering plenty of accolades, I’ve started »
