Anthony Daniels On Reprising The Role Of 'C-3Po' In Star Wars Episode VII

16 September 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

They've appeared in each of the Star Wars movies and Episode VII will be no exception as C-3Po and R2-D2 return for the J.J. Abrams helmed follow-up to Return of the Jedi. While the movie will be making good use of Andy Serkis' performance capture studio The Imaginarium, Anthony Daniels has confirmed that he will be once again suiting up as the fan-favourite droid despite the fact that he was initially offered just a voice-over role in the highly anticipated movie which drops on December 18th, 2015. The British actors makes some very interesting points here about why it's important to have him in the suit rather than relying on special effects, though it does sound as if he's grateful for technological advances which have made the suit far more comfortable. The full interview can be found over at Entertainment Weekly. Share your thoughts on all of this below! »

Directors' Trademarks: David Lynch

16 September 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Directors’ Trademarx is back! At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. This month we examine the trademark style and calling signs of David Lynch as director.

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none

Unlike the other people who have been featured in this column in the past, David Lynch is less a director and more an artist. He is a writer, a visual artist, an actor, and a musician in addition to being a director. Above all, he is an interesting personality. His style is best described as surreal, and is not for the faint of heart. His films are typically sparse in action (but frequently violent), heavy in drama, and dwell in the bizarre. As such, despite being so well-renowned for his unique perspective, his films don’t have a lot of »

Check Out Eric Tan's Limited Edition Set of 'Star Wars' Trilogy Prints

16 September 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've featured the work of artist Eric Tan before, and he's frequently featured by Mondo and more. But he also gets commissioned to do a lot of official artwork for Disney. And now that Star Wars is under the House of Mouse, he was commissioned to create three pieces commemorating the original Star Wars trilogy. All three of the original episodes, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, all get their own cool print in Tan's signature style, and they look absolutely stunning. The only downside is they are extremely limited editions, and you'll have to spend a pretty penny to get all of them. Here's all three of Eric Tan's Star Wars trilogy prints from The Disney Store (via Instagram): On his official blog (where you can see more of his artwork), Eric Tan said: "The circle is now complete! Like so many kids in the early 80’s, »

Killing Darth Maul: George Lucas' prequel trilogy mistake?

15 September 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Darth Maul was one of most exciting new characters in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Ryan argues that George Lucas got rid of him too soon.

One minute after midnight on the 3rd May 1999, a branch of Toys R Us in Brandon, Florida became a hive of activity. Having queued patiently in the dark for hours, scores of shoppers - most of them full-grown men - funnelled through the doors. Some of them stacked merchandise up in their cradled arms, while others heaped toys up in their baskets and trolleys.

It was all part of the Star Wars fever that had begun in October 1993, when George Lucas first told Variety about his plans to make three prequel movies, and continued to grow over the next six years. Lucasfilm cannily fanned the flames of anticipation itself, with the Special Edition re-release of the original Star Wars trilogy. Suddenly, the franchise seemed new again, »

Rebels Spotted on Star Wars Episode VII Set; Obi-Wan Kenobi Movie in the Works?

15 September 2014 5:31 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The latest batch of Star Wars Episode VII set photos give us a look at what appear to be members of the Rebel Alliance, and among them may be leading actors Adam Driver and Gwendoline Christie.

It had been rumoured that both would be villains in the J.J. Abrams helmed follow-up to Return of the Jedi, but based on what we’re seeing here, that won’t be the case…at least not at first! One popular theory is that the Rebels took over the Stormtroopers and their spaceships and that what we’re seeing here are the remnants of the Empire making use of some sinister looking X-Wings. It seems far-fetched, but who knows?!

Less of a theory and more of a rumour is the news doing the rounds that Lucasfilm have started developing a Star Wars spin-off which will put the spotlight on fan favourite Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi. »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

‘The Art of John Alvin’ Book Review

13 September 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Drew Struzan might be the name you first think of when someone mentions movie poster artist, but few can argue that the work of John Alvin is not a equally iconic. Alvin’s art has be collected in great effort into one tight package in The Art of John Alvin by his wife Andrea Alvin. The high quality coffee table book collects the late artist’s film poster art in their final form and in the earliest stages when he was just starting to figure out the layouts for some of the posters that would go on to be some of the most iconic of all time.

An introduction gives a brief overview of his life and his earliest experiences painting images from the films that made him fall in love with the art, like 1954’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and 1960’s Spartacus. It details his life, marriage, and sudden »

14 Star Wars Original Trilogy Easter Eggs You Need To See

13 September 2014 2:09 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lucasfilm

Last week we had a look at easter eggs hidden in the Star Wars. Today we’re turning our gaze to the original films. And boy are there some doozies in there.

The original Star Wars films (A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi) themselves are over thirty years old, but they still fresh today. And we’re not talking about relentless updates either; the films boast incredible designs and an incredible sense of world building. And, of course, an abundance of easter eggs.

In the pre-cgi days hiding things in film was a lot harder. Nowadays all it takes is five minutes of a programmers time, but when everything was models each hidden in-joke had to be flawlessly executed. This would make you think that the original trilogy would be much lighter on easter eggs than the more recent films. And while a »

"Star Wars" Gets Familiar Faces & Setting?

12 September 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Greg Grunberg is teaming up with his childhood friend J.J. Abrams again, the former dropping a tweet indicating that he's set to have a cameo in the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII".

Grunberg has been with Abrams for sometime. He was a regular on the Abrams-produced "Felicity" and "Alias," had a cameo as the pilot of the ill-fated Oceanic Flight 815 in "Lost," and had small appearances in "Mission: Impossible III," "Super 8" and even "Star Trek" (he was the voice of James Kirk's stepfather). Here's his tweet:

Yes @smgulz it Is safe to assume I have a role in #StarWarsEpisodeVII - If I say more than that, Jj will have me killed.

Greg Grunberg (@greggrunberg) September 11, 2014

Onto today's speculative rumors. It is safe to assume that planetary locations from the original "Star Wars" trilogy are set to be revisited in the upcoming films.

Will 'Star Wars 7' Return to Dagobah?

12 September 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Previous Star Wars: Episode VII rumors have claimed that the movie will visit old locations from the previous movies, including Hoth, Endor, and Tatooine. Now, a new rumor is throwing Yoda's exile planet of Dagobah into the mix. Stop reading now if you don't want to know how the planet plays into the proposed storyline.

Last week, new details emerged about how Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) fits into the Star Wars: Episode VII storyline, from a tipster who reportedly read the second draft of J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan's screenplay. It was hinted that Luke may be swayed towards the Dark Side of the Force.

Today, we have a new report from This Is Infamous that reveals more details about Luke Skywalker's character arc. It's been widely reported, but never confirmed, that the story centers on John Boyega and Daisy Ridley's characters, who find a severed hand with »

More Possible Details On 'Luke Skywalker' In Star Wars: Episode VII

12 September 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's hard to know what to believe when it comes to Star Wars spoilers, because even if the info is coming from a usually reliable source, multiple script changes and director J.J. Abrams and his "mystery box" shenanigans often lead to a lot of false "scoops" floating around on the interwebs. But that being said, one thing that's common in pretty much everything we've heard about the character of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is that he's been Awol since Return Of The Jedi, and will pop up again on some remote, deserted planet. But will he be there against his will or by choice? What of the suggestion that he may be inching towards dark side of the force by the end of this movie? This Is Infamous claim to have a few answers. Possible Spoilers ahead. "From what I’ve been told, Luke hasn’t been missing for a full 30 years, »

Sketches of Daisy Ridley's Character in Star Wars: Episode VII

12 September 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

As you've already heard, actress Daisy Ridley is rumored to be playing Han Solo and Princess Leia's daughter in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. Thanks to Jason Ward from Making Star Wars, we have a detailed description of the character along with some sketches showing us what the character might look like.

The concept designs you see here aren't actually from the film production. These were drawn by Ward who has seen the official concept design of the character, and he provided the following description:

"I had trouble with the loose free-flowing scarf, so I didn’t depict it. She has a ton of detail and gadgets on the costume, so please forgive me for any ambiguities. The pants reminded me of Boba Fett’s pants (they’re not). The knee pads, chest and scarf are a dark blue. The pants are grey. Her arms are a white 'bone' looking padding, »

How George Lucas brought Star Wars to the screen

12 September 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

George Lucas' 1974 rough draft of Star Wars is now a Titan comic book. Ryan charts the script's evolution from page to screen classic...

It's like Star Wars, but refracted through a strange lens. Here's Han Solo, but he's green, like the Toxic Avenger, and has gills. Here's Luke Skywalker, but he's a powerful general with a white beard and a flinty look in his eye.

All this can be found in what is now commonly called The Rough Draft of The Star Wars, originally written by George Lucas back in 1974. A kind of mid-point between the somewhat vague ideas Lucas first had for his space fantasy movie earlier in the decade, and the fourth draft - which was used as the shooting script for the 1977 film - The Star Wars is a jarring document from the franchise's early history.

Last year, Dark Horse produced an eight-part series of comics based on The Rough Draft, »
