More Potentially Major Spoilers For Star Wars Episode VII Revealed

14 September 2014 7:05 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Making Star Wars, J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII will indeed feature a throwback to the prequels as one of the characters will be a descendent of Count Dooku! The character played a major role in Attack of the Clones when it was revealed that he was working alongside Darth Sidious. Dooku later met a rather grisly end in the epic opening of Revenge of the Sith, but he clearly fathered some children sometime before that as the site's source reveals that the movie will feature, "an aristocratic family 'line' involving Episode 7’s bad guys. And as I said before, I firmly believe its the line of Dooku. Details and characters might have changed but the idea of an aristocratic villain with a heritage going back to the Clone Wars has been there from pre-production and as far as I know it’s still a major part of the story. »

Liam Neeson Updates on the Possibility of Qui-Gon Jinn in future Star Wars Movies

7 September 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Doing the press rounds for his latest man-on-a-mission movie, Scott Frank’s A Walk Among the Tombstones, Liam Neeson updated us on the possibility of returning to that galaxy far, far away.

With Jj Abrams spearheading Disney’s much anticipated continuation of the Star Wars Universe many familiar names have been thrown through the cameo rumour mill, with the possibility of seeing dead Jedi more plausible than most.

The posthumous presence of Neeson’s Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn was felt in Attack of the Clones during Anakin’s massacre of the Sandpeople, and at the end of Revenge of the Sith Yoda told of Qui-Gon’s discovery of immortality. So, could we see Neeson returning as a Force Ghost alongside Yoda? Not in Episode VII according to the actor.

Neeson told Stefan Pape that while he’d love to return to Star Wars he’s not been asked to appear in Episode VII. »

V For Vendetta’s James McTeigue Signs On To Direct Alien Sleeper Cell

5 September 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Wachowski’s golden boy, James McTeigue, has joined a new project from a new studio – Alien Sleeper Cell. Doesn’t that title give you the most delightful chills? Alas, it’s got nothing to do with xenomorph Alien franchise.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will capture the same tone as The Bourne Identity and TV show The Americans. But in an alien invasion-style set-up. Consider us intrigued!

While there’s scant details about Alien Sleeper Cell, it’s known that McTeigue will direct the flick from a script by up-and-comer Morgan Davis Foehl. Foehl just completed work on Michael Mann’s Cyber script. As it stands now, new production outfit Scanbox Studios are currently putting together financing and brokering international deals for the pic. Prime Universe Films’ Adrian Askarich who recently finished work on Fox’s Hitman: Agent 47 will co-produce, and Felipe Linz will join as executive producer. »

'Star Wars 7': Is Skellig Michael Island the Sith Homeworld?

29 August 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As per usual, this story is rife with Star Wars: Episode VII plot information that could be considered a Major Spoiler! Continue at your own risk...

A few more Star Wars: Episode VII story details have been leaked by Latino Review, and first thing they do is clear up the rumor that the main villains will be called Sith Inquisitors. It is believed that they will not go by that name in the movie. Though, there will be a number of Sith and one of them may be a cyborg. But not the cyborg shown in a recent piece of concept art.

This is where there story takes an interesting turn. As we've heard in recent weeks, the concept art which reveals one of Star Wars: Episode VII's main villains is not a cyborg Sith Inquisitor as previously reported. It is actually Emperor Palpatine, also known as Darth Sidious. »

'Star Wars 7': Will Emperor Palpatine Return?

23 August 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

(Is Bringing Back Another Classic Villain?)

We've heard this rumor before. That Ian McDiarmid will be reprising his role as Emperor Palpatine (aka Darth Sidious) in Star Wars: Episode VII. But now Latino Review is confirming from two different sources that the character will indeed return, though he may not be played by Ian McDiarmid, who took over the role in 1983's Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and returned to play him in all three prequels, beginning with Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace in 1999, and continuing in 2002's Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and 2005's Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.

Major Spoilers to follow...

While The Sith Inquisitors are said to be the primary villains in Star Wars: Episode VII, Darth Sidious will be revealed as the puppet master behind the scenes. And throughout Star Wars »

Exclusive: New Set Pic from Star Wars: Episode VII Goes Back to the Desert

18 August 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

After the deluge of Star Wars: Episode VII information that landed this past Friday, there's still more on the horizon (thankfully).  Today, we got our hands on a new picture of the set currently at Pinewood Studios, showing that some desert scenes are still being shot for the production.  Come inside to check out the new image and see for yourself!  

Filming should be starting up again shortly for Star Wars: Episode VII, which has currently been on a planned hiatus from filming, and more information is expected to be released this week (wink, wink), but in the meantime, we've got a pic from the set for you to gander at (which we received courtesy of a fellow Star Wars fan Jason, who runs his own fan site):

Filming on Episode VII started in the desert, but filming on location there only lasted for a couple weeks, so many »

Star Wars” ignited Hollywood’s digital revolution when George Lucas made 1999’s “Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace” the first movie played on digital projectors and 2002’s sequel “Attack of the Clones” the first movie shot entirely digitally.

Are CG characters now the main attraction in blockbusters?

21 July 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark wonders whether we're now at the point where CG characters matter more than human ones to Hollywood...

Feature

This article contains spoilers for Godzilla and Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Also, there are some mild spoilers for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, but nothing you haven’t seen in the trailers.

In the last decade or so, computer generated characters have taken a quantum leap forward in blockbuster cinema. You can probably mark the transition around the time that Yoda went from being a Jim Henson creation to a digitally rendered sprite in Star Wars: Episode II, but bigger technological leaps have followed, particularly in performance capture.

Andy Serkis has been a big ambassador for this, earning a reputation as a Boris Karloff figure for the digital age in the process and a loyal core of fans who still insist that he deserved an Oscar for his turn »

Why People Can't Enjoy the VFX in The Star Wars Prequels

14 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

George LucasStar Wars Prequels did a lot of things for the special effects industry, being among the first films to feature thousands of digitally enhanced shots, while also introducing the idea of the first CG supporting cast members.  But for all the good they did for the industry in moving VFX forward, many fans have decried the Prequels’ use of computer images throughout the trilogy.  Today, with our look at CGI in movies, I’m taking a look at why the Prequels; use of CG hasn’t sat well with people and caused so much uproar. 

Each month the Cinelinx staff will write a handful of articles covering a specified film-related topic. These articles will be notified by the Movielinx banner. Movielinx is an exploration and discussion of our personal connections with film. This month we investigate characters in film that are not made of flesh and bone, but »

Boba Fett Movie May Have Hired A Very Familiar Face

2 July 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Has the identity of the actor playing Boba Fett in a standalone Star Wars movie been sitting underneath our nose this whole time? We have been drifting along with the assumption that the solo, spinoff Star Wars movie that Godzilla director Gareth Edwards will helm will focus on Boba Fett. Picking up that baton and running with it, Inquisitr.com dug around and landed on the IMDb page for an announced "Untitled Star Wars Project." They have Gareth Edwards slotted as the director. They have Gary Whitta down as the screenwriter. And they list Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett. Well. Alrighty then! Temuera Morrison is no stranger to the Star Wars universe, having played Jango Fett in George Lucas. Star Wars: Episode II . Attack of the Clones, as well as Commander Cody in Episode III . Revenge of the Sith. He.s lent his voice to Boba Fett and Jango Fett »

Star Wars: Episode VII Rumors: Mercenaries, Sith Witches, and Fallout from Harrison Ford’s Injury

25 June 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Star Wars: Episode VII rumor mill continues to churn away as new plot details have possibly surfaced.  But before we get to those, let's get to some production rumors following Harrison Ford's leg injury.  According to the less-than-reliable New York Post, Oscar Isaac's role is being expanded to make up for less Han Solo.  However, another source tells the Post, "'The basic story line will not change that much.' The source said no characters were being dramatically expanded, but 'the order of filming scenes could be shifted' to work around Ford’s absence."  This seems far more likely, and the source adds that "Shutting down the movie is impossible," and I believe that as well.  I'm not sure the movie's insurance would cover such a shutdown, and even if it did, Disney seems determined to hit the release date no matter what.

Rachel and Hayden Wrap Up Their Monthlong Caribbean Vacation

20 June 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen returned to Lax after a nearly monthlong trip to Barbados on Thursday. Rachel ditched her bikini and opted for a comfy sweater at the airport instead, adding a Skywalker hat that gave a fun nod to Hayden's role as Anakin in Star Wars: Episode II. The couple spent their tropical vacation staying superclose, snapping pictures, lounging in the sand, and even stealing a few kisses. Their Caribbean extravaganza kicked off over Memorial Day weekend, when the mom-to-be bared her belly in a Beach Riot bikini during a day on a boat as well as a black Marysia two-piece for some snorkeling. (Actress Lupita Nyong'o wore a white version of the suit in Hawaii!) News of Rachel's pregnancy made headlines late last month, and though neither Rachel nor Hayden has confirmed the news, a source close to the couple has said, "They've both talked about this »

S7AR Wars: A Verdict On People Vs. Lucas

30 May 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Remember back not so long ago when Revenge of the Sith came out and the old Star Wars fandom despaired? The culmination this despair seemed to be the 2010 documentary The People Vs. George Lucas that asked the question: ‘Just how much is a creator allowed to do whatever he wants to a creation the fans think was turned over to them a decade ago?”

It’s an interesting question, especially for someone like me who begrudgingly stood in line for Revenge of the Sith in May 2009 because I’d started standing in line for Star Wars movies in 1997 with the Special Edition releases and the completionist geek inside of me needed to have stood in line for every theatrical Star Wars release I was alive for (I lapsed on Clone Wars, guys, so...streak broken). I remember standing in line for Revenge of the Sith and knowing the only good »

Required Reading: Leonardo DiCaprio as Darth Vader and Franchise Fatigue

28 May 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “Old News: What were movie fans talking about on May 27, 1999?” — Matt Singer at The Dissolve jumps in the time machine to inspect the rumor that Leonardo DiCaprio had met with George Lucas about playing Anakin Skywalker, noting that it’s a particularly saddening alternate reality: “But still: Is there anyone today who wouldn’t swap Christensen for DiCaprio if they could (except for maybe Christensen and DiCaprio)? Even with the exact same script, how much better does Attack Of The Clones get the second you put DiCaprio in the Anakin role? 20 percent? 30 percent? That’s got to be one of the most depressing what-ifs in recent casting history. And yet, at the time, the fact that it didn’t happen was greeted in some circles as good news. A »
