Sideshow’S “Queen Of The Dead” Is Here!

10 hours ago | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Sideshow Collectibles “Queen Of The Dead” Premium Format Figure

Sideshow has always been known for their incredible ability to create works of art that capture the wonder and sophistication of some of pop culture’s most endearing characters. From Marvel Comics and Indiana Jones to Kratos, the God of War (one that personally adorns my shelves) and Star Wars, Sideshow always finds the soul of even the most tangential characters and makes them shine.

But what many don’t know, is that Sideshow is also in the business of crafting original creations. One of their most successful in-house projects has been their “Court of the Dead” collection. Conceived by Sideshow’s very own Tom Gilliland, “The Court of the Dead” is an original story and comic book surrounding the character Death and his associates. Many thanks to Sideshow for sending their newest member of “The Court” our way for a preview. »

290 days until Star Wars: R2-D2 and C-3P0 to star in animated 'Droid Tales'

11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Disney Xd has solidified itself as the destination for all your animated Star Wars needs. First with “Star Wars Rebels” and now this new limited-series event featuring everyone’s favorite droids. The Lego Group and Disney announced late last week that they will be teaming up for a brand-new animated special set in a galaxy far, far away. “Lego Star Wars™: Droid Tales” will be a limited-run of five 22-minutes episodes that retells the entirety of the Star Wars movie saga in chronological order from the perspective of R2-D2 and C-3P0.  While information about when the limited series will air is not yet available, an overview was released by The Lego Group: Following their victory celebration in the Ewok village on Endor, seen at the close of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, C-3Po and R2-D2 have gathered to regale Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca and the other »

Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales is coming to Disney Xd

2 March 2015 1:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

New Disney Xd TV show Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales will retell the entire saga from C-3Po and R2-D2’s perspective…

Of all the abandoned Star Wars projects, George Lucas’ idea for a property focused on ‘just the droids’ seemed like one that would never see the light of day.

However, Disney Xd seems to be resurrecting the concept – or creating something new along the same lines – through Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales.

The new limited series (not to be confused with 1985's Star Wars: Droids) will consist of 5 x 22-minute episodes and see C-3Po recounting tales from the iconic droids’ past after the Return Of The Jedi-closing Battle Of Endor. As this reminiscing unfolds, some kidnapping will apparently take the droids on a new adventure, while also squeezing in a retelling of the entire saga from The Phantom Menace through to Return Of The Jedi. »

'Star Wars 7' Flashback and Luke's Role Revealed?

28 February 2015 11:10 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warning! Not only will this next story include plenty of Spoilers, it should be noted that ever since director J.J. Abrams gave validity to some of the rumors floating around the internet about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, some folks have felt the need to feed more erroneous information to the masses. So while some of this story may be true, it may also contain false details. Either way, we've heard in the past that there will be flashbacks in Star Wars 7. New rumors have come to light that explain exactly what those flashbacks entail, and they do include a young Luke Skywalker. We also have more details about Luke and Rey's quest in the movie, and the rumor of an important addition to the cast. Are you ready to learn more about this epic sci-fi adventure heading our way in December?

"Star Wars" 1-6 Retold As Lego Mini-Series

28 February 2015 9:40 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Ahead of the release of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," Disney Xd has announced plans for an animated mini-series entitled "Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales" to air later this year.

The limited series will consist of five twenty-two minute episodes which will re-tell all six of the previous live-action films, from "The Phantom Menace" through to "Return of the Jedi".

The key difference is that events will be seen from the perspective of the droids C-3Po and R2-D2. Set after the Rebel Alliance victory on Endor, an accidental kidnapping leads to the pair re-telling the stories of their adventures.

On top of that, it'll all be done in Lego form like several other "Star Wars" specials in the past. No word on a broadcast date.

Obsessed with TV and Film: Best of the Week

28 February 2015 9:22 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

‘Les Loups’ is the first great Quebec film of 2015

The dark unforgiving waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the mouth of the St. Lawrence river provide the backdrop to Les Loups, a beautifully crafted melodrama. Set in a small island Quebec town during the spring thaw, a stranger arrives during the height of the controversial seal hunts. Vibrant and mysterious, many suspect that Elie, the young woman from Montreal, is not who she says and is likely a reporter or an activist bent on portraying the townsfolk in a bad light… read the full article.

'Lego Star Wars' TV Series Will Retell First 6 Movies

27 February 2015 10:19 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the first season of Star Wars Rebels coming to a close next week, fans will be left without any new Star Wars content for several months, until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18.

The movies are being retold through the eyes of droids C3PO and R2D2 in a brand new story set after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi.

‘The Phantom Menace’ and the goodness of Star Wars nostalgia

27 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A long time ago…in 1999, the pop culture zeitgeist was caught in a Star Wars maelstrom. Writer-director George Lucas and his crack creative team had gone back to the well that made space opera cinema what it is known and appreciated as today by producing the first Star Wars movie in 16 years. Yes, it was difficult to fathom, but the legion of Star Wars fans the world over had waited over a decade for a new film. Not since 1983’s Return of the Jedi, which concluded what is today commonly known as the ‘Original Trilogy’, had they rejoiced in a new cinematic adventure. This new endeavor was to not to be a sequel, but rather a backstory that would relate how Anakin Skywalker, once a proud Jedi Knight and defender of justice, was encouraged to renounce his altruistic ways, embrace the dark side of the Force, and become Darth Vader, »

11 of action cinema's great movie villain pairings

25 February 2015 8:11 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From early Bond to 21st century sci-fi, here's Ryan's pick of 11 unforgettable villain pairings from action cinema history...

You're generally lucky if a movie has one genuinely great villain in it, let alone two. This is probably because creating a villain takes great acting and writing - it's one thing to create a preening character who stomps around a story doing unpleasant things, but creating a villain who's three-dimensional, witty, scary and above all memorable requires considerable skill.

Every so often, a movie comes along which gives us not one, but two classic villains, with the personality of one complementing the other. A familiar dynamic was once laid out by Steven Spielberg: one is smart and eloquent , while the other is the tougher, more violent of the pair. It's a template that we've seen time and again in cinema, but it's only occasionally that both characters leap from the screen. »

The Calloway Way – Why The New Alien Movie Might Disappoint

22 February 2015 5:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway is wary of Neill Blomkamp’s Alien film…

When Neill Blomkamp released some of the artwork for his proposed Alien film, I was impressed – concept art for science fiction films is often better than the films themselves – and mentally filed it in my “great unmade films” drawer. It sat there alongside the Gladiator sequel scripted by Nick Cave, in which Russell Crowe’s character is resurrected and fights in various battles throughout history, Return of the Jedi directed by David Lynch (he was offered it, and turned it down because he did not want to helm a science fiction film where he was not in control of the material; ironically his next film would be an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. I cannot imagine what Lynch’s version of Jabba’s Palace would look like) and the unmade Jurassic Park sequel that featured dinosaurs, obviously, »

Star Wars Battlefront will reportedly tie in with Star Wars: The Force Awakens

21 February 2015 11:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s one of the most anticipated video games of 2015, but so far we know very little about EA’s upcoming Star Wars Battlefront, save from what little information we’ve been able to gather from the E3 2014 behind-the-scenes trailer, and a piece of concept artwork showing Rebel Commandos on Endor. Well, the folks at Making Star Wars claim to have uncovered some details about the game, and specifically how it might tie in with J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens.

- Star Wars Battlefront will feature segments in which you play as both the good guys (Old Republic, Rebellion and Republic) and bad guys (Separatists and the Empire). It was specifically stated that there will be a small portion of prequel trilogy content. You will participate in a couple of battles from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the space battle above Coruscant from the beginning of Revenge of the Sith. »

Holding Out For a Heroine: On Being a Woman and Loving Star Wars

19 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a little girl in possession of a good imagination must be in want of a heroine. At least, this was the truth of my childhood. Like many people of my generation, my early pop culture intake was a healthy mix of Disney (this included an extensive library of worn-out VHS in the classic white plastic clamshell packaging), Saturday morning cartoons (from DuckTales to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Japanese imports repackaged for North American kids (Power Rangers, Speed Racer). But my one true love was science fiction. And anyone familiar with my work on this website could probably guess that this love begins and ends with Star Wars. Or really, it begins with Princess Leia.

I don’t remember my first viewing of the original trilogy; it exists in my memory as a constant presence. And like any healthy child weaned on TV and movies, »

When ‘Star Wars’ Changed

16 February 2015 4:28 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I could barely contain my excitement. Star Wars, a film I had probably watched maybe 20 or 30 times was going to be re-released theatrically. My parents weren’t big movie fans, but my uncle had offered to take me and my best friend to see it. A fitting choice considering it had been my uncle who introduced me to the Star Wars universe. He gave me the trilogy box-set after I had watched his copy of Batman (1989) so many times that I could quote lines by heart. As much as I loved Batman, Star Wars completely overwhelmed my five year old self. I loved movies already at a young age, but this was a phenomenon that the entire world could tap into.

A New Hope was now dubbed the “The Special Edition” and the picture was rumored to have millions of dollars in special effects added following it’s 20th anniversary. »
