6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Star Wars News Net, we have our first look at some new creatures from Star Wars: The Last Jedi called fathiers (a.k.a. Space Horses). These alien creatures are found on the world of Canto Bight, where they race for gambling purposes – and by the looks of the promotional artwork, Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) will be making use of their speed, presumably during their rumoured chase sequence with the First Order.

Kathleen Kennedy Calls for Zero Tolerance Policy in Response to Weinstein Abuse Allegations

11 hours ago | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Kennedy: lucasfilm.com

Lucasfilm prez and producer Kathleen Kennedy delivered the keynote speech at Elle’s Women in Hollywood Event last night and used her platform to acknowledge — and condemn — the elephant in the room. “A demand is growing for action to prevent further civil and human rights abuses in the future,” she observed, per The Hollywood Reporter. Kennedy added that “increased awareness of the belittlement, objectification, and predation long-endured by women who work in film will certainly be one result of the exposure of what Harvey Weinstein did.”

In addition to voicing her support for the women who have come forward and shared their stories about Weinstein, Kennedy stressed that “predators must come to feel they can’t count on power or wealth or fame to shield them.”

The “Star Wars” producer outlined several tactics Hollywood should adopt to combat its culture of abuse. She recommended “zero tolerance policies for abusive behavior, and a secure, reliable, unimpeachable system in which victims of abuse can report what’s happened to them with a confident expectation that action will be taken, without placing their employment, reputations, and careers at risk.”

Kennedy also suggested that individuals from all professional walks of life come together to create a commission “charged with the task of developing new, industry-wide protections against sexual harassment and abuse.” Her vision would see feminist activists, labor and management representatives, law experts, activists, sociologists, psychologists, and film and TV execs join forces to overhaul Hollywood’s current system of addressing misogyny — which usually involves turning a blind eye.

“The commission should be fully funded by our industry in order to address the task at hand in a thoroughgoing, comprehensive fashion,” Kennedy continued. “The goal of this commission would be to transform our industry in regards to sexual harassment and abuse in the workplace.”

In her own speech, Women in Hollywood honoree Jennifer Lawrence endorsed Kennedy’s idea. “If we build this commission, this community of support where anyone can come to us and ask questions, I will give my all to it,” the Oscar winner stated.

Kennedy has received eight Academy Award nominations throughout her career, and has produced over 90 projects, including “Persepolis,” “Jurassic Park,” “Back to the Future,” and “Schindler’s List.” One of Kennedy’s upcoming credits is the much-anticipated follow-up to 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “The Last Jedi.” The Daisy Ridley-led sequel hits theaters December 15.

You can read Kennedy’s entire Women in Hollywood speech over at THR.

Kathleen Kennedy Calls for Zero Tolerance Policy in Response to Weinstein Abuse Allegations was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Fan Creates ‘Jurassic Park’ Sequel We All Would Have Paid To See

21 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We don’t usually post that many fan trailers here on the site, but we thought we’d make an exception for this one. A hugely talented fan has put the following trailer together for a potential Jurassic Park II using footage from the original 1993 movie and what looks to be some from the Bruce Willis-led Tears Of The Sun, his hugely under-rated 2003 movie, directed by Antoine Fuqua. Watch the Jurassic Park 2 fan trailer in the player at the bottom of the post.

Pitched at what appears to be Jurassic Park by way of Predator, the trailer alludes to a film we’d certainly stand in line to see.

Of course, back in 1997 we were ‘treated’ to a very lackluster sequel to Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original, adapted from the source material by Michael Crichton. The Lost World: Jurassic Park, far from set the world on alight, even though it »

Rian Johnson reveals Lucasfilm spoiler policy for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

11 October 2017 11:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rian Johnson, the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, has revealed the spoiler policy of Lucasfilm for the upcoming movie.

The build up to The Last Jedi has gotten everyone talking, and, as is normally the case for a film of this size, fans have had to contend with any spoilers that might be contained in the movie’s marketing material.

Lucasfilm has already set out their stall for what they consider to be a no-go area with regards to The Last Jedi, as Rian Johnson has revealed to Yahoo the process that was undertaken to decide what would need to be left out of the various trailers.

“A year ago, maybe even more than that, my producer Ram [Bergman] and I sat down with the folks at Lucasfilm and said, ‘Ok, this is what we’re going to reveal here and there, and this stuff we’re never going »

New Jurassic World 2 Poster Arrives, Trailer Coming in December?

11 October 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Not that anyone thought Jurassic World wasn't going to be a hit, but the fact that the sequel is now one of the highest-grossing movies ever released is something that caught a lot of people off guard. So, we're getting a follow-up next year and, while we all wait for the trailer, a brand new banner for Jurassic World 2 has been unveiled. The new poster comes to us from the Brand Licensing Expo in London and features the return of the T-Rex, Chris Pratt's Owen Grady and his pal, Blue the velociraptor.

Universal Pictures hasn't officially released this banner, but it was shared on Instagram by by a fan. The banner features the previously revealed logo for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom at its center. On the left is the famous T-Rex from the original Jurassic Park, who many fans have taken to calling Rexy over the years, looking her usual amount of intimidating. »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi director on what inspired him to create Porgs for the film

11 October 2017 9:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of the second trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the internet officially has Porg fever. In case you missed it, at one point the trailer depicts Chewbacca flying the Millennium Falcon alongside a screaming Porg, which has made the weird seal-penguin-thing the topic of many a conversation this week.

So where did the idea of Porgs come from? In a universe full of bizarre alien species, the Porgs aren’t too strange, but we’ve been burned before with “comical” additions to the Star Wars universe  (cough Jar Jar cough). So why include them?

What is their purpose? Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson reveals that Porgs were inspired by the native Puffins that lived on the island they were filming on:

“I was like, ‘Oh, this is part of the island, we need to find the Star Wars version of this. »

The Flickering Myth Reaction to the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer

10 October 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing team share their thoughts on the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Last night (or in the early hours of this morning, for those of us in the UK), Disney and Lucasfilm unleashed the second trailer for December’s massively-anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Despite Rian Johnson’s recommendation that fans avoid the trailer, the Flickering Myth writing team – and pretty much everyone else in the world – couldn’t resist this latest peek at the galaxy far, far away, and here’s what we made of it…

Ben Robins: Loving the focus on the force and Jedi in this one, and getting a very different vibe from it too. Even down to the lighting, everything seems a lot fresher and in some cases, weirdly smaller than Star Wars: The Force Awakens which is very exciting. As expected, pretty much zero plot given away too which is always nice, »

How Hans Zimmer changed modern film scores

10 October 2017 6:41 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Allison Oct 11, 2017

Big film scores have changed over the past decade - and Hans Zimmer may be the reason why...

For every movie-going generation, there is a film score composer who ascends above all others and comes to encapsulate the sound of their era. In the 1940s and 1950s, the brooding and mysterious tones of Bernard Hermann would define a generation of suspense cinema. Decades later, it was John Williams who ushered in the blockbuster era with a series of bold and iconic melodies, from Jaws through to Superman, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Jurassic Park. Today’s cinema has its own musical zeitgeist. When future archaeologists uncover the buried ruins of our civilisation, they may well refer to it as the 'Hans Zimmer period'.

Hans Zimmer is a movie composer of singular acclaim. He is one of the only such artists with the clout to fill concert arenas across the world, »
