Star Wars Rebels Gets New Posters, Sdcc Information, and Villain Details

11 July 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While we have to wait another year before getting a new Star Wars movie, fans still have something to look forward to when Star Wars Rebels lands on televisions this Fall (as in just a few months).  As such, Disney/Lucasfilm are pushing the new animated series hard at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and have released a slew of information over the last couple days.  Come inside to see a new video introducing David Oyelowo as an Imperial villain, the full Sdcc Panel schedule for the show, and a swanky Rebels poster. 

While the wait for Star Wars: Episode VII seems insufferable (at least to some of us), we can take comfort in the knowledge that new Star Wars stories will be coming our way soon in the form of the Rebels TV series.  With the show set to debut in a few months, Disney is pushing their marketing »

7 Things We Learned From Boba Fett Actor's Reddit Ama

10 July 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jeremy Bulloch, the man behind the mask of Boba Fett, put a bounty on our hearts during a charming Ama on Reddit, where he touched on everything from his favorite moments on the Star Wars set to the cult of Boba Fett and the extra jet pack he would've added to the bounty hunter's already badass costume.

Boba Fett movie would be terrific, says original actor Jeremy Bulloch

10 July 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The actor who played Boba Fett in the original Star Wars movies has spoken in depth about the character.

Jeremy Bulloch, who starred as the popular bounty hunter in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, has taken part in a Reddit Ama with fans about his character.

Talking about his inspiration for playing Boba, he said: "I always remembered that Clint Eastwood, in A Fistful of Dollars, he and Boba Fett had the same sort of cape.

"He stands up and he's looking at someone and takes a draw of a cigarette, all done in slow motion, and that's how I felt Boba Fett should be: all done in slow motion. He has time, he's never rushing around. His movement it's very literal and that's what he does. He does his job very well and then moves on."

Boba Fett's First Real Appearance Was at a County Fair in 1978

9 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I'm not sure how many of you know this, but Boba Fett's first appearance wasn't in the 1980 film Empire Strikes Back. It also wasn't in the 1978 animated segment of the Star Wars Holiday Special as Vader’s right-hand man where he is holding the trident looking weapon. 

Boba Fett's first appearance was live when he marched in the San Anselmo Country Fair parade on September 24th, 1978. According to Star Wars.com:

Parades are usually high school bands and Corn Princesses and floats, not flamethrowers and jetpacks and helmets. So what and why was Boba Fett in a parade in a small city twenty miles north of San Francisco? For one, San Anselmo was home to the famous house at 52 Park Way, which was the galactic core of Lucasfilm at the time. So once the annual fall parade came around, it seemed to make perfect sense. Why not?

'Star Wars: Episode VII' Not Included in LucasFilm's Comic-Con 2014 Line-Up

8 July 2014 5:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Comic-Con 2014 just a few weeks away, many fans thought San Diego would be the first place footage or full-costumed cast photos from Star Wars: Episode VII would debut, even though director J.J. Abrams is currently in the midst production. Sadly, today, Disney and LucasFilm confirmed their Comic-Con plans, which included a brief statement confirming that Star Wars: Episode VII will not be featured in any way at the con.

"With Star Wars: Episode VII creators deep in production in anticipation of the film's December 18, 2015, release, Lucasfilm will not be featuring the movie at Sdcc."

We can always hope for the element of surprise, which hasn't served fans well in the past. No previous Con or event has served to provide a first look at Star Wars: Episode VII just yet.

However, LucasFilm and Disney did reveal several other Comic-Con events for Star Wars fans to partake in during the annual San Diego convention, »

Merch: Check Out Sideshow Collectibles' Life-Size Darth Vader Figure

8 July 2014 5:38 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In before the "how much for the blonde?" comments. This replica is based on the Sith Lords' appearance in Return Of The Jedi and stands 7 feet tall, weighing 105 lbs. You can own your very own Darth Vader for $7,999 (or $719.90 per month for a year), but if someone was that desperate to have something like this in their home, surely a male mannequin and a deluxe Vader costume would be a much cheaper option? Anyway, the figure comes with "a cinematic light-up display case, with interchangeable hands for various hand gestures, a hand-tailored quilted suit, screen-accurate armor and sequencing electronics in the chest box and belt." »

10 Great Fireworks Scenes from Movies

4 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Happy 4th of July everyone! It's not hard to imagine that my favorite part about this holiday is the fireworks! I love lighting them up and watching them go off. I even attempted to make my own at one point… I'll never do that again. As a tribute to this patriotic American holiday celebrating our independence, I've put together a top 10 list of great fireworks scenes from the movies. 

The Sandlot

This is by far one of the most American 4th of July scenes ever put on film. You've got a group of kids playing baseball in the 1950s on the 4th of July. 

An American Tail

Behold, the Giant Mouse of Minsk! This scene is both thrilling and incredibly scary. It's such a cool fireworks scene though.

To Catch a Thief

Alfred Hitchcock was a filmmaking genius, and this scene features fireworks going on in the background as Cary Grant »

Boyhood review

4 July 2014 7:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Director Richard Linklater excels himself with his latest drama, Boyhood. Here’s Ryan’s review of a one-of-a-kind piece of filmmaking...

The mind boggles at the risks director Richard Linklater must have taken in order to make Boyhood. This is a drama shot over the course of more than a decade, following the same group of actors as they mature and change with each passing year. The passing of time - and how it affects relationships - is something Linklater flirted with before in his Before trilogy, but never to the groundbreaking extent seen here.

Boyhood is told from the perspective of six-year-old Mason (Ellar Coltrane), an imaginative, somewhat distracted boy more fascinated by the world around him than his homework, which he often leaves crumpled up in his school rucksack. His mother Olivia (Patricia Arquette) has little to do with Mason's father, Mason Senior (a brilliantly louche Ethan Hawke »

Watch: Retro Hour-Long PBS Special on Original 'Star Wars' Trilogy

3 July 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

With a rumor lingering that Star Wars: Episode VII could end up being delayed to 2016 (we're betting that won't happen), we're not sure how long we'll really be waiting to see the continuance of the space saga. We're not counting on a big presence at Comic-Con this year at all, but maybe the title will be revealed in San Diego just to hold fans over. In the meantime, how about a retrospective look back at the making of the original Star Wars trilogy created by George Lucas? The Playlist has found an hour-long PBS program that dives behind the scenes of the first three films, and Lucas is pretty prominent in the special. Watch! Here's From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of a Saga, now in one single video (via Centropolis): This special is definitely worth your time, complete with narration from Mark Hamill. This program actually aired »

Crowdfunding Friday: The Art Of Ralph McQuarrie

3 July 2014 1:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A Kickstarter campaign aims to fund a book devoted to Ralph McQuarrie, the artist who first brought the Star Wars universe to life...

Feature

Next December, Star Wars: Episode VII will bring one of the most loved and lucrative franchises back to our screens. But it's worth remembering that, although Star Wars is now a colossally successful property worth millions, its path to the silver screen was by no means an easy one.

In the mid-1970s, George Lucas was still a young filmmaker with two successful but modestly-budgeted movies under his belt. Lucas' idea for his third film was a sci-fi fantasy so outlandish, and so potentially expensive to make that studio executives all over Hollywood simply couldn't see the value in it. Pitches to United Artists and Universal Pictures came to nothing, as Lucas struggled to describe the film he'd hatched in his head.

Watch: Vintage 1-Hour PBS Documentary 'From Star Wars To Jedi: The Making Of A Saga' Narrated By Mark Hamill

2 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As rumors continue to swirl around "Star Wars: Episode 7," and whether or not it'll make its planned December 2015 release, let's take a trip back to a simpler time, one where the only thing you had to worry about was how much waiting in line you'd have to do for the next entry in the George Lucas-created saga. And for those who grew up in the late '70s and early '80s, where seeing a movie like "Star Wars" was imperative especially since the home video release could be a long, long time away, this one-hour documentary is a good example that speaks to the appetite for the series long after final chapter (at the time) had played out in cinemas. Produced for PBS, "From Star Wars To Jedi: The Making Of A Saga," narrated by Mark Hamill, first aired on December 3, 1983, seven months after "Star Wars: »

Carrie Fisher's Daughter Billie Lourd Joins 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

27 June 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Billie Lourd, the daughter of Carrie Fisher and Creative Artists Agency chairman Bryan Lourd, has joined the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII.

Latino Review's report does not reveal which character she may be playing, but it may be just a cameo appearance. The 21-year-old Billie Lourd does not have any acting credits to her name, so if this report is true, she will be making her feature film debut in the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII, which is set 30 years after Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi.

It's worth noting that the Star Wars: Episode VII script, co-written by director J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan, reportedly features the offspring of Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), so it's possible that Billie Lourd may be playing Princess Leia's daughter. Naturally, that has not been confirmed, but stay tuned for more »
