VFX reel showcases Ilm’s digital effects work on Star Wars: The Force Awakens

9 September 2016 2:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite all of the talk of a return to the practical effects focus of the Original Trilogy in the build up to the release of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the visual effects wizards at Industrial Light & Magic still had their work cut out on the film when it came to digital effects.

Although you’d never guess from watching it, there’s actually more CGI in The Force Awakens than Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, and Ilm has now released a fascinating ‘Behind the Magic’ VFX reel showcasing their rather fantastic work on the J.J. Abrams-directed blockbuster, which is definitely worth five minutes of your time; check it out here…

Star Wars: The Force Awakens sees J.J. Abrams directing returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) and »

Snatch is getting a TV remake, starring Rupert Grint

23 August 2016 1:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Aug 23, 2016

Guy Ritchie's Jason Statham and Brad Pitt-starring film Snatch is heading to TV. Rupert Grint will star...

Guy Ritchie's 2000 movie Snatch is the latest film to get a TV remake. (We'll add it to our list of movie-to-tv projects in due course.) The original film, of course, starred the legendary Jason Statham alongside a bloke named Brad Pitt

Collider reports that the TV take on Snatch will star Harry Potter's Ron Weasley actor Rupert Grint. He'll play Charlie Cavendish, who's been described as “dynamic, frustratingly chaotic, and utterly posh.”

Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible II, Taken 3, Fear The Walking Dead) is attached to play Vic Hill. Ed Westwick of Gossip Girl has signed up to portray Sonny Castillo. Fans of the film will notice that these are brand new characters names, not recastings of the old crew.

Here's the synopsis, which, again, isn't »

Hot Toys Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/6th scale Finn (First Order Stormtrooper Version) collectible figure

19 August 2016 12:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hot Toys has unveiled a batch of promotional images for its 1/6th scale Finn (First Order Stormtrooper version) collectible figure from Star Wars: The Force Awakens; take a look here…

Originally trained since birth to serve the First Order as a Stormtrooper, Fn-2187 was deeply affected by the death of his squad mate and the innocent villagers during the attack of Tuanul on the desert planet Jakku. The skirmish has awakened his conscience and drove him down a different path, one that proved both heroic and dangerous and picking up a new name – Finn.

The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of John Boyega in the film featuring a newly painted head sculpt, a sleek First Order Stormtrooper armor with weather effects and helmet with the iconic blood mark, blaster rifle and blaster pistol, and a hexagonal figure stand with the First Order’s emblem.

Mark Hamill confirms rumour about the original opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

4 May 2016 2:39 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in the summer of 2014, a rumour emerged from Birth.Movies.Death suggesting that the then-titled Star Wars: Episode VII would begin with a shot of Luke Skywalker’s severed hand and lightsaber floating through space before landing on a planet. Of course, as we all know, that opening was absent from Star Wars: The Force Awakens; however, Mark Hamill has now confirmed to The Sun that an early draft of the script did begin with that sequence:

“I can tell you now that in the original opening shot of 7, the first thing that came into frame was a hand with a lightsaber, a severed hand that enters the atmosphere, and then the hand and bone burns away and goes sticking into the surface of Jakku, and this alien hand comes in, don’t know if it was Maz but it was an alien hand who takes the lightsaber way, »

J.J. Abrams says Rey’s parents aren’t in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, then backpeddles

16 April 2016 11:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s the big mystery coming out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens – just who are Rey’s parents? Many fans have their theories on the matter, but one put the burning question direct to J.J. Abrams during a Q&A at the Tribeca Film Festival.

“Rey’s parents are not in Episode VII,” said Abrams, somewhat uncomfortably. “So I can’t possibly, in this moment,tell you who they are. But I will say, all I would say is, it is something that Rey thinks about, too.”

With Abrams seemingly dismissing the prospect of Rey being a Skywalker, then director then clarified his comments to EW, stating that: “What I meant was that she doesn’t discover them in Episode VII. Not that they may not already be in her world.”

So… who do you think Rey’s parents are? Does J.J. Abrams even know? Or has he left »

J.J. Abrams reveals Mark Hamill’s role in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens table read

5 April 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you were probably left wondering why Lucasfilm bothered to bring Mark Hamill in for the cast table read when his character Luke Skywalker had no lines in the movie. Well, as you’d expect with a J.J. Abrams movie, it was partly to retain the movie’s secrets, but the director has also revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Hamill had another important role to play:

“It was partly trickery,” states Abrams. “We knew, obviously, that he didn’t speak in the film. And because we knew we were going to take pictures, and people knew he was in the movie, we needed to have him there. “It wouldn’t have been right notto have him there. But it also wouldn’t have been right to have him there and not participate.”

Abrams went on to reveal that Hamill agreed to read out the stage directions from the script, »
