Phasma and Hux Come Out of Hiding in Latest Peek at The Last Jedi

23 September 2017 1:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Captain Phasma survived her fall down the garbage chute thanks to evil ball droid Bb-E9, and General Hux managed to escape the Starkiller Base explosion at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, safely bringing Kylo Ren back to Snoke on his Mega-Star Destroyer. Now we have a look at both characters as they return in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And these guys are ready to bash some Resistance fighter brains in.

While we still don't have a second trailer to pour over and scrutinize, Lucasfilm and Disney did provide quite a few high-res images from the upcoming Skywalker saga sequel. Most of these photos were first released as part of Entertainment Weekly's Force Friday coverage this past September. But there are a few new surprises to be found here, including a new look at Hux, Phasma and Chewbacca.

There are some great behind-the-scenes photos of director Rian Johnson »

‘Hellboy’ Whitewashing Controversy: 5 Japanese Actors Who Could Take on the Embattled Role

29 August 2017 9:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Early last week, white British actor Ed Skrein joined the cast of Neil Marshall’s upcoming “Hellboy” reboot, a casting choice that was immediately derided for its whitewashing of Skrein’s character, a Japanese-American Marine named Ben Daimio (whose family tree includes no less than a famous Japanese spy and war criminal, who also appears in the John Arcudi and Mike Mignola comic book series). In short order, Skrein did something wholly remarkable: he dropped out of the project after learning about Daimio’s heritage.

In an official statement, the actor made it clear that he believed the choice was what was “right,” noting that portraying the part in “a culturally accurate way” was clearly important for audiences (Skrein also pointed to his own “mixed heritage” family in the statement, which you can read here). In a »

Rey Is Ready for Jedi Training in New Star Wars 8 Photo

29 August 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Stephen King's It is coming in just a few weeks, and is perhaps the most anticipated movie of the fall season. But Star Wars: The Last Jedi is without a doubt the most anticipated movie of the year. And this Thursday at midnight, a whole new world of Star Wars merchandise will be unleashed as part of Force Friday 2. As we stand on the cusp of this monumental event, we get another new image from the movie. This time, we see Rey, at the ready, about to start her Jedi training.

The photo comes to us courtesy of Yahoo movies. We don't learn much of anything. And it doesn't show us what we already know. Toys have confirmed the fact that Rey will begin her tutelage under Master Jedi Luke Skywalker in this sequel to The Force Awakens.

Things won't go according to plan. The fact is, Luke is »

Star Wars 8 Funko Pops and Porg Toys Unveiled

15 August 2017 4:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If the Porgs weren't invented for printing money, then Lucasfilm is really fooling us, because the aquatic Ahch-To fowl really seem to be heading up the marketing push that happens this September for Force Friday. If there was any doubt, Hasbro will be unleashing a life-sized plush interactive Porg in just a few weeks, and it could be one of the hardest things to get your hands on. It's become obvious that Chewbacca is pals with these sea creatures who inhabit Luke's isle of exile. Does he also enjoy eating them? That is a question for another day, as we pour over the first images from Funko Pop for their line of new Last Jedi vinyl figures, which appropriately enough feature Chewbacca and a Porg.

There's going to be so much Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise flooding the market in the next couple of weeks, that fans won't know what to do with themselves. »

These Guys Were Almost Han Solo in Star Wars, Not Harrison Ford

12 August 2017 12:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Lucasfilm announced plans for a standalone Han Solo prequel, there didn't seem to be an actor in Hollywood who didn't want a crack at playing the younger version of the character made famous by Harrison Ford. Producer Kathleen Kennedy and the film's original directing team looked at a slew of actors between the ages of 17 and 34. At one point, the short list reportedly included Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Jack Raynor, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Emory Cohen, and Blake Jenner, before the role was ultimately given to Alden Aron-Reich. But the search for the original Han Solo was just as wide searching, and possibly a little more difficult to nail down, with quit a few Hollywood icons targeted for the role.

Since the release of the original Star Wars film in 1977, a slew of names have surfaced as prospective would-be Millennium Falcon piloting smugglers who were nearly cast »

Director & Screenwriters Revealed for Film Adaptation of Zombie Novel Eat, Brains, Love

9 August 2017 5:16 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Not long after acquiring the release rights to the buzzed-about Tragedy Girls, the studio Gunpowder & Sky is now taking a big step forward with their film adaptation of Jeff Hart's romantic zombie comedy action road trip (sounds fun, doesn't it?) novel, Eat, Brains, Love.

Deadline reports that Gunpowder & Sky has lined up Rodman Flender to direct the film adaptation of Eat, Brains, Love from a screenplay that will be written by Mike Herro and David Strauss.

Originally published in 2013, Eat, Brains, Love follows two high schoolers who are infected with a zombie virus, eat a good portion of their friends, and end up fleeing from the government and their teen psychic who is sent to capture them.

A play on words from the title of Elizabeth Gilbert's novel Eat, Pray, Love, Hart's "rom-zom-com," as fans of Shaun of the Dead might refer to it as, was followed by a »

Revisiting the film of Stephen King's The Lawnmower Man

27 July 2017 10:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rebecca Lea Aug 7, 2017

The film that Stephen King insisted his name be taken off. It's The Lawnmower Man...

The film: Dr Lawrence Angelo (Pierce Brosnan) is at the forefront of research, using virtual reality and drug combinations in an attempt to increase intelligence in primates. When it all goes wrong, he turns to an intellectually disabled man, Jobe (Jeff Fahey), and promises him intelligence in return for his role as a human test subject. Naturally, it all goes a bit awry when Jobe succeeds beyond Angelo’s wildest dreams. Oh and Dean Norris adopts a weird, clipped accent and is nefarious.

The true story behind Dougray Scott playing Wolverine in X-Men and why Hugh Jackman took over

28 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at a time when Hugh Jackman was not Wolverine

There was a lot of buzz and excitement in 1999. People around planet earth were excited to see what the new Millennium would bring; while big companies panicked that the Y2K bug would kill all their hard work and shut down the working world. For Dougray Scott, 1999 was set to be the year that changed his career. He had been handpicked by Tom Cruise to play the villain in M:i:2 and he was set to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer’s X-Men.

The adaptation of the popular Marvel Comics property had been a long one. In 1984 Marvel writers Gerry Conway and Rob Thomas wrote a screenplay for production company Orion Pictures (Platoon) who had optioned the film rights. But when the company fell into financial troubles the rights went over to Carolco Pictures (First Blood) who began »

Harrison Ford Avoids Another Near-Miss Plane Crash

15 February 2017 4:08 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The actor best known for playing Han Solo in the Star Wars films almost had a potentially fatal plane crash earlier this week. NBC is reporting, that after air traffic control informed Ford to land on a runway at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, Ford mistakenly landed it on a close by taxiway (a violation of Faa policy), flying dangerously close to a parked American Airlines Jet with 110 passengers and 6 crew members on board. The 74 year old Ford, was heard asking the air traffic controllers, "Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?”

It should be noted that both Ford's publicist, Ina Treciokas, declined to comment and that a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, Ian Gregor, couldn't confirm if it was indeed Ford piloting the single-engine plane. However, the spokesman did confirm that the pilot had the proper landing instructions and read them back to control.

Top 20 New Year TV episodes

1 January 2017 11:49 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Wesley Mead Jan 2, 2017

As the New Year arrives, we salute a few favourite TV episodes depicting this momentous time of year...

New Year is a time for reflection on the past and resolution for the future, an opportunity to consider what you’ve achieved and what you’re yet to work on. It’s also a time to stay up well past midnight, partying the night away with friends and family, potentially embarrassing yourself in the process. That dichotomy ensures that the New Year is fertile ground for television, and the finest comedies and dramatic series use the moment to allow for contemplation amidst the alcoholic excesses. Here are twenty New Year episodes that offer an entertaining take on the aeons-old celebration - from emotional character pieces to geeky genre takes and old-fashioned barrages of seasonal comedy.
