Greg Grunberg says Star Wars: The Force Awakens is all about “the story and family”

26 June 2015 3:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there is one thing Star Wars: The Force Awakens has done well (despite its heavily publicised production) is keeping its story a secret. We’ve had two trailers already, but we don’t actually know all that much about the plot of J.J. Abrams’ new adventure in a galaxy far, far away.

One of its stars Greg Grunberg however has given some details about the theme of the movie in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“I can only say that practical effects are as important—if not more important—than the special effects,” the actor said. “And it’s all about the story and family. I mean that’s what J.J. is all about. And these new characters, these actors are unbelievable. They’re so well cast. We got our script pages, only the scenes that we were in. Not even what was being shot that day! »

Earlier today we brought you some images from Star Wars: The Force Awakens featuring Greg Gunberg’s character along with a couple of returning favourites from Return of the Jedi [see here], as well as a likely Photoshopped image of Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker [see here].

First look at Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

19 June 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this week, we brought you our first look at Princess Leia in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (before Disney made us take them down), and now we have our possible first look at her brother Luke Skywalker.

The folks over at TheForce.net have posted the below image which shows Mark Hamill as Luke with his grey beard and metallic hand. They don’t say where they got the image from, so this is far from official.

Possible Spoilers – Pictures of more returning characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens; Greg Grunberg’s role revealed?

19 June 2015 6:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – possible spoilers below…

Since the announcement of the movie, we’ve known that the likes of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia would be back for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but there have been plenty of rumours about other possible returning roles (but not Lando it would seem). Well, starwars7news.com believes it can confirm two returning characters, along with information on a new one.

If you’re a fan of Return of the Jedi, you are in luck. According to the website, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will see the return of Nein Nunb and Admiral Ackbar. Check out the photos below that the site claims are 100% legit:

Obviously we don’t know if this is true or just a wild Bantha chase, but the website is very sure these are genuine. And to back that up, they have the first image of Greg Grunberg in the movie, »

Early draft of Star Wars reveals who really shot first

9 June 2015 1:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It is one of the larger debates within the Star Wars Universe (although most fans are on the same page). Who shot first? Han or Greedo? Well, according to a recently discovered early draft, it was definitely Han. The scoundrel!

The script was discovered by Kristian Brown of the University of New Brunswick’s library, who stumbled upon the early draft while digitising their library. No one is quite sure how this script ended up at that particular library. “I’ll tell you one thing, right now,” Brown told CBC News. “Based on the script, I can tell you 100 per cent, Han shot first.”

Well, that puts that to rest.

The scene in question is set in the cantina in the original Star Wars. While Greedo is explaining to Han about Jabba the Hutt’s desires to capture him, Han gets the jump on Greedo and shoots him dead. In the 1997 re-edit, »

C-3Po’s new look revealed for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Following our first looks at Han and Chewie from the second Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, we’ve now got our first glimpse at a new look for C-3Po thanks to some leaked merchandise photos. Looks like the protocol droid needed a new arm since the original trilogy, but couldn’t find a suitable gold replacement. Either that, or he’s borrowed a new limb from Tony Stark…

Richard Johnson, British Star Of Stage, Screen And Television, Dead At Age 87

6 June 2015 8:50 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Richard Johnson (far right) in the 1963 supernatural masterpiece "The Haunting" with Claire Bloom, Russ Tamblyn and Julie Harris.

 

By Lee Pfeiffer

Cinema Retro mourns the loss of our friend, actor Richard Johnson, who has passed away at age 87. Johnson was a classically trained actor, having attended Rada and was also one of the founding members of the Royal Shakespeare Company. His acting career was interrupted by service in the Royal Navy during WWII but Johnson resumed his profession at the end of the war. He alternated between playing small parts in feature films and leading roles in stage productions. In 1959, he got his first significant screen role starring with Frank Sinatra and young Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson in the WWII film "Never So Few".  He was initially offered the role of James Bond but turned down the opportunity. He later told Cinema Retro that he had no regrets because »

Actor Richard Johnson Dead at 87 – Starred in The Haunting and Lucio Fulci’s Zombie

6 June 2015 7:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

R.I.P Dr. Markway. I recently watched British actor Richard Johnson as Bulldog Drummond in Deadlier Than The Male, a tough and stylish Bond pastiche from 1967 with an odd Avengers twist. His Drummond was suave and sophisticated and I wasn’t surprised to read that Johnson was (one of many to be) considered for 007. And I was thinking just last night when I was watching Insidious 3 that I wished I was instead watching a better-crafted, genuinely creepy horror story like The Haunting (1963), which starred also Johnson. The actor had a varied career, starring in diverse  roles ranging from Caius Cassius opposite Charlton Heston in Julius Caesar (1970) to Dr. Menard in Lucio Fulci’s unforgettable Zombie in 1979. Richard Johnson died in London yesterday at age 87.

From The BBC News:

British actor Richard Johnson, whose career spanned film, theatre and TV, has died aged 87, his family has said. Johnson made »

Ewan McGregor to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for a new trilogy of films?

3 June 2015 3:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Star Wars rumour mill is in full churn-out mode today with some new speculation coming from the chaps over at Schmoes Know. Looks like Disney aren’t just planning Star Wars spin-off solo movies outside of their main-story trilogy, they also want to create a whole new trilogy featuring a familiar face.

According to the website, Disney are in talks with Ewan McGregor for an “unknown project”, and their source is telling them the project is new trilogy of movies with him reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Star Wars prequels. Their source claims that this new trilogy of films would take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and would see Obi-Wan watch over a maturing Luke Skywalker with appearances from Owen Lars and Darth Maul.

This appears to be speculation at the moment, but if true would suggest that Disney have Nine »

Andy Serkis playing Supreme Leader Snoke of the First Order in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

28 May 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For months, one of the mystery roles in Star Wars: The Force Awakens has revolved around Andy Serkis. Who exactly he would be playing and would he once again don a motion capture suit has been a question on everyone’s mind. After the first trailer was released last December it was revealed the dialogue spoken throughout is actually from Serkis, confirming some theories that he could be playing a Sith Lord.

Some of those questions have at last been answered today as Andy Serkis was announced to be playing Supreme Leader Snoke of the First Order. With this announcement also came a picture of Serkis in a full motion capture suit sitting in a Emperor Palpatine-like pose.

Already the name Snoke has been gaining attention online with some people suggesting Snoke is a fake name to keep the real one hidden from the public for a while longer. »
