Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso Revealed in Star Wars: Rogue One

16 July 2016 11:31 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many fans were disappointed last night when the second Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer didn't debut on ABC during the Force Awakens behind-the-scenes documentary. Instead, they got the same sizzle reel from the Star Wars Celebration panel, although with a few new seconds of extra footage not shown overseas. To make up for it, today we have the first reveal of new Star Wars character Galen Erso, played by Mads Mikkelsen. The father of Jyn Erso, we have to yet see this character in any of the previous footage or images released thus far.

Mads Mikkelsen was on hand at yesterday's Rogue One panel, where he described his character as a scientist, and is said to have once created something 'so beautiful' for the entire galaxy. In this first look image, Galen doesn't appear to have seen the best of days, and is wearing a worn and dirty »

Concept artist Iain McCaig says Han Solo spinoff is “by far the best Star Wars script”

1 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an appearance at an Art and Industry of Imagination conference in New Zealand, Lucasfilm concept artist Iain McCaig spoke briefly about the script for the upcoming young Han Solo movie, and was full of praise for the Star Wars Anthology project.

“[It’s] by far the best Star Wars script, and one of the best scripts period, that I have ever read,” said McCaig. “I laughed, I cried, I did all the things you should do when reading a good script. You’re in for a treat.”

Now, it should also be noted that McCaig is part of Lucasfilm and worked on the prequels along with last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so he’s not really going to come out and say “the story is as dull as The Phantom Menace and the dialogue as stiff as Attack of the Clones.” However, there’s certainly some stellar talent involved in the project, »

Samuel L. Jackson and George Lucas Think Mace Windu Is Still Alive, But Does It Matter?

30 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

One of the better characters created in the Star Wars prequels was Mace Windu, the Jedi master played by Samuel L. Jackson. If you forgive him for that awful “This party’s over” line from Attack of the Clones, he’s actually a pretty bad ass Jedi. But unfortunately, Mace Windu died at the hands of the […]

This Iconic Character Finally Uses the Force in Star Wars 8?

9 June 2016 2:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After getting exactly one minute of screen time in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Luke Skywalker is confirmed to be a major driving force in the next sequel, which doesn't have an official title yet. He will play Jedi master and mentor to Rey in Star Wars: Episode VIII, stepping into fill the giant void left by the death of Han Solo. While he'll essentially be a key supporting cast member billed only behind the three new heroes, another classic character is still getting the shaft when it comes to screen time. But what precious little scenes we get to spend with former Princess turned General Leia Organa, the fact that we'll finally get to see her do something truly awesome might make up for it.

Leading into The Force Awakens, many wondered and theorized over whether or not Leia had become a Jedi after all these years. Yoda did once say there 'was another'. »

Why You Shouldn’t Be Worried About Harry Styles Appearing In Dunkirk

29 May 2016 3:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks forward to the former boy band star appearing in Christopher Nolan’s next film…

This week the first set photos of Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming war film Dunkirk emerged, as well as the news that Tom Hardy had signed up to appear in the film. He joins a cast that includes Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy and Harry Styles.

There was some dissent when Styles – better known as a member of One Direction than an actor – was announced as part of the cast. It’s an unusual move, but it’s exactly the sort of thing that Christopher Nolan does.

While Nolan obviously has a regular troupe of actors he uses in different films – Murphy, Hardy, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway and Christian Bale have all appeared in his films more than once – he also makes some unexpected casting choices.

Nolan has a habit of resurrecting the »

Star Trek Continues: A Great Web Series and a Great Homage

28 May 2016 8:07 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With the debut today of the sixth episode of the excellent web series Star Trek Continues, Cinelinx looks at one of the most outstanding fan-fiction projects being produced today, as it reaches its third year. This show is not only a superb tribute to the original Star Trek, it’s a well-made and entertaining series in its own right.

 Any fan of the original Star Trek TV series should enjoy this impressive follow-up, which continues the Five Year Mission of the USS Enterprise. It picks up after the last episode of the original show “Turnabout Intruder” (The final scene of which is recreated in a short video vignette that precedes the series) and chronicles the 4th year of Captain Kirk and his crew going where no man has gone before.

 The creative minds behind Star Trek Continues have been putting out original episodes online since May of 2013. The latest release »

When Yoda Could Return To The Star Wars Universe

18 May 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The new Star Wars trilogy is underway, but as Star Wars: The Force Awakens easily showed, there are still plenty of ties to the original trilogy. The latest movie treated fans to appearances from Han Solo, Leia Organa, Chewbacca and Luke Skywalker, and all but one of those folks (sorry, Han) will be returning next year for Star Wars: Episode VIII. Now there’s talk that wise old Jedi Master Yoda might make an appearance from beyond the grave. With Star Wars: Episode VIII deep into production, Indie Revolver has heard that Yoda’s voice actor and original puppeteer Franks Oz reportedly recorded new audio for the movie and is not doing any visual work, though that could be subject to change. Yoda has been a CGI character in the live action movies since 2002’s Attack of the Clones (they even replaced The Phantom Menace’s »

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Top Gun’ premiered, ‘Seinfeld’ killed Susan

16 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

30 years ago today, Navy fighter pilot hotshots Maverick, Iceman, and Goose first flew across big screens around the world. It was on May 16, 1986 that Top Gun opened in theaters. Already well on his way to becoming a household name thanks to 1983’s Risky Business, Tom Cruise became a certified movie star with the release of Top Gun. It was also the first hit for director Tony Scott, who went on to direct other action flicks and thrillers like Crimson Tide, Man on Fire, and Déjà Vu (which reunited him with Top Gun star Val Kilmer) before his death in 2012. Top Gun, a slick, upbeat, Reagan-era ode to masculinity, boasted a memorable soundtrack (with Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” and Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”), impressive dogfights, an endlessly quotable though often goofy script, and, upon its release, immediate box office success. It became the highest grossing movie of 1986. Also on this day, »

Joe Corallo: Isn’t It Midnight?

10 May 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This past Thursday I went with my columnist of choice, Molly, to take in all that Captain America: Civil War had to offer. There were thrills, chills, and carefully crafted and choreographed spills. Molly and I also went and saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice the day they came out. Well, technically those were all the day before they came out. The official release dates for all those movies was the Friday of the week. So how come they were in theaters the day before?

Because we don’t have midnight movie premieres anymore.

Personally, I think that sucks. For years, going to a midnight release was exciting for me. Sure, it often led to a miserable Friday at work, but it was worth it. Waiting on a line with lots of fans, the chatting with strangers about the shared love of Star Wars, »

Boba Fett was originally going to be the main villain in Return of the Jedi

7 May 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite only having a handful of scenes in The Empire Strikes Back, and a rather feeble death at the hands of the Sarlacc in Return of the Jedi, the bounty hunter Boba Fett has gone on to become one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars universe. And had George Lucas stuck to his original plan of making twelve movies, we’d have seen a lot more of Boba in Episode VI, where the idea was to have him as the main villain.

“Originally Boba Fett was set up in Empire as a character, and the third movie’s plot was going to be more about Boba Fett, rescuing Han Solo and all of that,” states Craig Miller, former fan relations officer for Lucasfilm during the 1970s. “Boba was gonna be the main villain… That was set up, why he was taking Han Solo away, why there was »

TVLine has learned that both of D.J.’s Season 1 suitors — Steve and Matt, neither of whom received roses during the finale’s Bachelor spoof — will have new women on their arms in Season 2, including one who looks frighteningly familiar.

Star Wars: Don't Worry, The Plot To Episode VIII Hasn't Leaked

22 April 2016 9:43 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It’s time to circle back to Star Wars: Episode VIII Aka Space Bear for the week, because The Guardian decided to pick up a Reddit thread about a possible plot breakdown for the film. First things first: No, this isn’t how we’re expecting the movie’s plot to leak. Certainly not now while production is still going on, it makes no sense.

Reddit is a great community resource, but it hasn’t had a good win-percentage with people claiming to be insiders, then spilling a bunch of “plot points” before disappearing from the internet. This happened for The Force Awakens in many, many ways. You might even recall that one time I did a whole column on a fake trailer write-up that we eventually discovered was fake when the guy who did it was bragging about it on other forums.

Diego Luna's 'Star Wars: Rogue One' Character Name Revealed?

4 April 2016 5:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's rumored that we won't get the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer until Captain America: Civil War hits theaters this May. And it's looking like we won't get any confirmation about the characters in this next Star Wars movie until that time. But thanks to Making Star Wars, we might now know the name of Diego Luna's role, rumored to be a Rebel spy who infiltrates the Imperial Senate.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story takes place prior to the events seen in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, with a group of Rebels on a heist mission to steal plans to the first dreaded Death Star. So far, no character names have been revealed for the movie. Many believed that Diego Luna was playing Luke's friend Biggs Darklighter. While they have similar looks, it sounds like Diego Luna is playing a completely new character. »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is almost as divisive as the movie’s title. ‘Who would win in a fight, Batman or Superman?’ can now be joined in the pantheon of nerdy debates by, ‘What the hell was going on in that film?!’

Star Wars: More on Leia & Laura Dern and Clueless Snoke

25 March 2016 2:04 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I genuinely feel lucky to be able to take a step away from Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice this week to re-focus on Star Wars, even if only for a day to see what happened this week. 

We’ll begin with The Force Awakens stuff, since we’re about a week away from when we’ll all be able to own it legally, and no, I’m not going to elaborate on the illegal side, because lame.

I don’t think I’ve learned anything from illegally obtained The Force Awakens screencaps this week that I couldn’t have waited for, so nothing from that is going to be covered. However, Disney has been pushing the DVD release by pushing some teaser video of the special features. My two favorite ones are the Maz Kanata one and the trailer for the deleted scenes.

Happy #MazMonday! @StarWars #TheForceAwakenshttps://t.co »

'V for Vendetta': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Controversial Film

16 March 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"V for Vendetta" has only come to look more prophetic in the decade since its release on March 17, 2006.

The adaptation of the Alan Moore/David Lloyd graphic novel, starring Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman as a vengeful anarchist and his protege fighting a fascist government in a near-future England, proved to be the biggest critical and commercial success for producers the Wachowskis since "The Matrix." It also popularized the Guy Fawkes mask that has been a favorite of real-life protesters worldwide.

As iconic as the movie became, "Vendetta" ran into numerous obstacles during its production -- and many controversies upon its release. Here are ten things you need to know about the fan-favorite.

1. After making three "Matrix" movies, Andy and Larry Wachowski (now Lilly and Lana, respectively) dusted off a screenplay for "Vendetta" they'd written years earlier, before they had the clout to make it. Wanting a break from directing, »
