Having retired from the Star Wars franchise, George Lucas has previously stated that he was yet to watch the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However, he has now revealed that he caught the trailer while attending the cinema, telling Page Six: “I saw the trailer. I saw it in a theater because I don’t watch movies online.” When asked if he liked it, he smiled. “Yeah, it was intriguing.”
Meanwhile, Lucas also spoke to Cinema Blend about his initial vision for the Sequel Trilogy (you may recall that Michael Arndt had written treatments for the three films when Lucas was still in charge of the Saga, with J.J. Abrams subsequently rewriting Episode VII’s script with Lawrence Kasdan, and reportedly shifting the focus from new characters to the old guard):
“The ones that I sold to Disney, they came up to the decision that »

Before it was announced he’d be returning to the world of The Flash to reprise his role as The Trickster, it was revealed that Mark Hamill would be picking up the lightsabre once again to play Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
“The déjà vu of walking onto the Millennium Falcon again and remembering all these details that they’ve got exactly right from old photographs and old blueprints…I can’t describe the feeling,” Hamill told Extra (via Cbm) promoting his new movie Kingsman: The Secret Service. “Even now it seems surreal to me. It seems hard to believe that it’s actually happening.”
When asked about Star Wars creator George Lucas (who recently had some harsh words about The Academy), Hamill said “seeing [George Lucas] this happy, he’s almost unrecognisable. Because when I was with him [on the original trilogy], he was fretting over all the details, so he »

Fox has played Dr. Nikki Alexander on the BBC One crime drama since 2004, but told Digital Spy that the next two episodes, which involve the death of a suspected paedophile and the case of a missing young girl, were the toughest ever to shoot.
"It's quite a hard-hitting one," she revealed. "I hope it's dealt with authentically because I felt very invested in it. There were some scenes... I think they were the hardest scenes I've had to do in Silent Witness."
The 18th series of Silent Witness will continue with two more two-parters, with the first concerning the Russian mafia and the second described by Fox as "a really good thriller in Essex nightclubs, dealing with criminal drug dealers".
"It's quite an energetic, raw one," she said of the finale. »
The 18th series of BBC's enduring forensic crime drama reaches its midpoint tonight, with the first of another gripping two-parter.
In this pitch-black opening act, a suspected paedophile is found dead in a playground and it's not long before the team links his murder to the case of a missing young girl.

Catastrophe: Channel 4, 10pm
The Daily Mirror is reporting that unknown British actress Amybeth Hargreaves has been cast as an Imperial Stormtrooper in the hotly-anticipated first chapter of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, which stems from a listing on Hargreaves’ Spotlight UK page.
If true, then it seems the Empire must have implemented a new equality and diversity policy following the death of the Emperor, with black actor John Boyega also playing a stormtrooper, as seen in the first trailer.

Warwick Davis was very keen to get a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens last year, and while appearing on The One Show on BBC One, the Return of the Jedi star has shared a couple of selfies with two familiar Star Wars characters on the set at Pinewood Studios.
As things are being kept top secret we can assume that Davis was given permission to show these two photos which hardly give away any details about the film. We already knew that Chewbacca was making a return but the selfie with what is clearly Darth Vader is interesting. There have been rumours that Vader would appear in the film but it is more likely that the costume was available on set for being so iconic. Or maybe Davis has just spoiled the return of the Dark Lord of the Sith….

Since the Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast was officially announced last April the internet has been flooded with potential rumours and ramblings concerning who is playing who (or what). While most of these rumours haven’t been confirmed some concept art that was leaked in recent months can help add some depth to the early character descriptions.
Before you read on I must stress that this is very much spoiler territory but also that it is currently only a rumour and hasn’t been confirmed by anyone involved with The Force Awakens.
Fan site StarWars7news are reporting that their Episode VII source has seen concept art regarding Max Von Sydow’s character and it differs from previous rumoured descriptions.
Possible Spoilers Below…
Contrary to previous descriptions Von Sydow’s character has “no cybernetic implants upon his face” or make-up of any kind. He’s wearing a dark »

It was news that broke the Internet a few years back when Disney purchased Lucasfilm for a whopping $4 billion, announcing a new trilogy of Star Wars movies including several spin-offs. But prior to their announcement, Lucas himself was working a new trilogy that he intended to write and direct for release in May 2015.
However, when the offer came through, the decision was easy for Lucas to make.
“It’s better for me to get out at the beginning of a new thing and I can just remove myself,” Lucas told USAToday, promoting his new movie Strange Magic. “The time is more important to me than the money.”
Lucas laments that a new trilogy would have taken another decade off his life, which he wants to spend with his wife and newborn. However, he says he »

The 40-year-old actress - who has played Dr. Nikki Alexander on the show for 10 years - loves taking four-year-old Rose, who she has with former partner Jeremy Gilley, to work with her because she is made so welcome. She said: ''Rose is very much part of the show - as soon as she was born she had a room which the props guys kitted out with toys. She still comes on set which works very well with the juggle - and it is a juggle for any parent. You need »
