Channing Tatum, Adam Driver And Daniel Craig Go Full Speed Ahead In ‘Logan Lucky’ Trailer

10 hours ago | ET Canada | See recent ET Canada news »

The all-star cast of “Logan Lucky” has more horsepower than a fleet of Hennessey Venom GTs. “21 Jump Street” star Channing Tatum and “Star Wars” villain Adam Driver team up as brothers executing an elaborate robbery during the Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The two team up with a very Southern Daniel Craig to […] »

Why Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was Better Than you Think

11 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Regardless if you’re a die hard Star Wars fan or a casual watcher of the franchise, the overall feeling is that the prequels that were devised to explain the original trilogy were worse than horrible. Some think that they were fine the way they were, while others believe that much more could have been done to make the supposed beginning to the franchise much, much better. No matter what you believe, there are several reasons why the first film “The Phantom Menace”, was much better than you might have thought. Here are five reason Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was

The Skywalker Twins May Reunite In Star Wars: The Last Jedi

13 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this week, Vanity Fair very nearly brought the internet to a screeching halt when they debuted their Star Wars: The Last Jedi cover story, which arrived with a handful of absolutely gorgeous photos and a treasure trove of trivia and tidbits about the upcoming film and the franchise as a whole. Of course, it also fuelled a lot of speculation and one of the things that got people talking the most was that shot of Mark Hamill and the late Carrie Fisher.

From what we know, Luke Skywalker will spend a good chunk of the movie training Daisy Ridley’s Rey, but fans have been wondering for a while now if we’ll perhaps get to see him join the fight as well, giving him an opportunity to reunite with Leia. It’s something which hasn’t been confirmed just yet, but does seem likely, and adding even more »

Great Job, Internet!: Breaking down what Logan has to say about the aging superhero genre

13 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Anyone taking a cursory glance at the movies released in a given year can tell you that the popularity of certain genres tends to come and go in waves. A few decades ago, people liked cowboy movies or hard-boiled detective stories. After that it was Star Wars rip-offs, then supernatural teen romances. These days, it’s obviously all about superhero movies, but is it possible that the superhero genre is on the way out? A recent video from The Nerdwriter hints that it might be, using Logan and Hugh Jackman’s history in the X-Men series to illustrate what happens to a movie genre when it gets old.

The video does this by relating Logan to the changes that the Western genre went through over the years, hitting on some of the film’s more overt metaphors in the process—Logan having to fight an evil version of himself seems »

Lego Star Wars – Jakku Quadjumper (75178) Review

15 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gary Collinson reviews Lego Star Wars’ Jakku Quadjumper set…

Summer is here, which means a brand new wave of Lego Star Wars sets! And, with the Star Wars: The Last Jedi tie-in sets not arriving until later in the year, The Lego Group has taken the opportunity to revisit Star Wars: The Force Awakens for a couple of brand new offerings, including the 457 piece Jakku Quadjumper (75178).

What’s a Jakku Quadjumper, I hear all but the most ardent of Star Wars fans ask. Well, it’s the ship that Rey and Finn attempt to make their escape in as they flee the Jakku marketplace, only for the First Order to blow it to smithereens, forcing them to turn their attention instead to a rather iconic piece of garbage, better known as the Millennium Falcon.

One big plus from the Jakku Quadjumper is the choice of minifigures, particularly for those who »

John Williams Receives an A Cappella Tribute at Harvard — Watch

17 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You’d be hard-pressed to name an honor that John Williams hasn’t won. The “Star Wars,” “Harry Potter,” “Indiana Jones” and “Jaws” composer has won five Academy Awards, four Golden Globes, seven BAFTA Awards and 23 Grammys; his 50 Oscar nominations are second only to Walt Disney. He just added another feather to his cap, however, as Harvard has seen fit to grant him an honorary doctorate in music.

The occasion was marked by a tribute performance from the Din and Tonics, an all-male a cappella group from the school. Their medley included selections from “Superman,” “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” and “Star Wars,” among others; even if you find a cappella excruciating, it’s a cool tribute.

Mel Brooks says MGM is interested in Spaceballs 2

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been teased since the release of the first movie back in 1987, and it seems that Mel Brooks still hasn’t given up hope of making Spaceballs 2: The Search For More Money a reality, with the filmmaking stating that the renewed interest in Star Wars may pave the way for the long-awaited sequel.

Speaking at a Q&A for Young Frankenstein, Brooks said that: “Well, you know, I’m doing it. MGM is slightly interested in doing it because of Star Wars, Rogue One, The Force Awakens, the new Star Wars explosion. They think maybe, so we’re talking.”

So… will there be a Spaceballs 2?! #MelBrooks says… pic.twitter.com/Ei89hTJLD7

Brooks has been talking up the possibility of Spaceballs 2 for a couple of years now, but sadly it doesn’t seem to be any closer to coming to fruition.

Millennium Themed Falcon Piano is One of a Kind

If you are a Star Wars fan and you like to play piano that it really doesn’t get much better than this.  I have to say that in all my years of actually playing piano I’ve never seen an instrument that looks like this.   About the flashiest I’ve ever seen when it comes to pianos is probably something you’d see Liberace playing.   However, in this day and age anything is possible.  Even channeling Han Solo and Chewbacca. The Millennium Falcon Inspired Piano built by the Player Piano team for use in their Ultimate Star Wars Medley Video, which you can

Epic Luke Skywalker Tribute Video Celebrates The Last Jedi

27 May 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The plot of Star Wars: The Last Jedi is still a little hazy, but one thing we know for sure is that we're getting a lot more Luke Skywalker. Mark Hamill will reprise his iconic Jedi role in this eighth chapter in the Skywalker saga. There are plenty of rumors about what his true role will be. But none of them have been confirmed. Today, we get an epic video that celebrates the legacy of Luke Skywalker, as fans continue to celebrate Star Wars' 40th Anniversary this weekend.

This massive video clocks in at under ten minutes. It was thrown together by those fine folks over at Heroes Fan Productions and released on Youtube. The team behind this glorious character trailer left a pretty lengthy message about their intent. Take a look at what they had to say.

Darth Vader learns that he is indeed the father of Luke and Leia after a paternity test in a short viral video told with subtitles.

Proof Rey Is Reincarnated in The Last Jedi?

27 May 2017 11:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will any of the mysteries surrounding the new characters introduced in The Force Awakens be revealed in Star Wars: The Last Jedi? We know that Snoke's big unveiling won't happen until Star Wars 9. But what about Rey's parentage? Her backstory? Anything? Well, Lucasfilm has officially confirmed that Rey gets to keep Luke's old blue lightsaber, which once belonged to his father Anakin Skywalker. That should come as no surprise. As we've seen Rey using the lightsaber to train in the first Star Wars 8 teaser. And she's brandishing it on all of the merchandise that has been released thus far. But it's what Lucasfilm Story Group creative executive Pablo Hidalgo recently said to Vanity Fair that has some fans raising their eyebrow. Could a long-standing rumor about Rey be true?

When The Last Jedi began production last year, rumors started to spread that Rey is reincarnated. And that will be the big reveal in the movie. »

Star Wars 8 Lego Sets Reveal Snoke's New Look, Evil Bb-8 and More

27 May 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following a week of big Last Jedi reveals, we have some more cool intel for this impending Star Wars sequel. Lego sets that will be hitting stores this September, as part of the annual Force Friday event, have leaked. And the two biggest takeaways are a new look for Snoke and Imperial Bb-8 doppelgangers going by the name Bb-9e.

These Lego sets also confirm the return of the At-at Walkers. We'd previously heard that these new machines would be called Gorilla Walkers due to their simian-upgrades, which include a huge flaw fix that no longer allows the Walkers to be taken down by any old Jedi with a really long spool of wire. These new At-ATs are actually called the 'First Order Heavy Assault Walker', and as you can see in the Tweets below, they come with some cool new Mini-Figs that include Rey in a look we've already seen, »

Sprawling cinematic universes have done boffo box-office business. “Star Wars,” Marvel comics, DC superheroes, and classic monster tales have all been mined for movie multiplex magic — with awesome auds turning out serious coin for congloms. Now another under-exploited IP may be ready for the silver screen — the song catalog of Simon & Garfunkel.

What began as an apparent joke on Twitter by “Baby Driver” helmer Edgar Wright has turned into an apparent joke on Twitter by Edgar Wright and a bunch of other people. On Friday, Wright tweeted, tagging fellow filmmaker Marc Webb, “I have ‘Baby Driver’ out in June & @MarcW has ‘The Only Living Boy In New York’ in August. Where is the ‘So Long Frank Lloyd Wright’ movie?”

Weird Al Celebrates Star Wars 40th Anniversary with Rare Yoda Demo

26 May 2017 6:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There were many ways to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars yesterday, but none quite as fun as a good old-fashioned "Weird Al" jam. Al shared his 1981 demo for his hit Star Wars parody song "Yoda" from the Dare to be Stupid album released in 1985. The demo first popped up on the Dr. Demento Radio Show in 1981 and it had the instrumentation Al was using at the time, meaning that the song is performed on an accordion and uses hand farts and a suitcase for percussion. The song was written after Al saw The Empire Strikes Back and is told through the eyes of Jedi-in-training, Luke Skywalker.

"Weird Al" released the demo for "Yoda" on his official YouTube account for the 40th anniversary of A New Hope and also to promote his epic box set that contains all of his 14 studio albums and a separate album of rarities. The »

There's No Romance in Last Jedi, But Poe and Finn May Hook-Up Later

26 May 2017 4:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Last Jedi director Riann Johnson revealed this week that there will not be an epic love story in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This may come as a shock to fans expecting an onscreen romance between Finn and Poe, or Rey and Finn, much like Han Solo and Leia's in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Even Attack of the Clones worked as a love story with varying degrees of success. It looks like we might have to wait until Star Wars 9 to see the romance between Chewie and Maz Kanata. Anything is possible...

While speaking to Vanity Fair, Johnson explained that there wouldn't be any major romances that are the equivalent of Solo and Leia's love. Johnson says this.

"[There will be] no one-to-one equivalent of the Han-to-Leia, burning, unrequited love. In our story, that's not a centerpiece."

Ok, we get it. Johnson really is trying »

Next year will be 10 years since Robert Downey Jr. made his surprise cameo as Iron Man to usher in the age of the combined McU. Kevin Feige talks about ten years of Marvel movies and his goal to bring all the Marvel super heroes into the McU. 

Marvel studios president and the supervising mind behind the McU, is not resting on his laurels and still has plans for the McU which includes bringing the X-Men and Fantastic Four to the combined cinematic universe. He spoke to ComingSoon.Net about his plans.

Feige said, “It sort of blows my mind when I think about that. We’ll have 20 films in ten years. We’re now working on how we mark that occasion. How we celebrate it. I have a very fun memory of the tenth anniversary of Star Wars when I as in junior high school. Now Star Wars is 40 and »

Big Snoke Mystery Won't Unravel Until Star Wars 9?

26 May 2017 3:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is drawing nearer and nearer, and fans are being given more and more reasons to get excited about this next entry in the Skywalker saga. The movie has to accomplish a lot, but it can't accomplish everything. And not everyone we want to see will get a ton of screen time. It turns out Rian Johnson has already revealed one key character who won't be getting much to do in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And it sounds like the big mystery behind Snoke won't unravel until Star Wars 9.

Warning: there are potential spoilers ahead for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Vanity Fair recently ran a huge cover story on the sequel, revealing a whole lot about the upcoming follow up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Vanity Fair's David Kamp decided that the piece they ran wasn't quite enough, so he landed on Reddit »
