Rogue One: A Star Wars Story character descriptions for Moroff, Pao and two new Stormtroopers

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to the folks at Making Star Wars, we’ve got a few new character descriptions for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, featuring two of the film’s alien supporting characters, along with a couple of Imperial Stormtrooper classes; take a look…

Moroff (Gigoran species)

Moroff seeks out combat zones to sell his brawn and firepower to anyone who might need it. The mighty Gigoran mercenary figures there’s money to be made for a towering heavy gunner.

Pao (Drabata species)

An amphibious Drabata, the fierce commando Pao charges into battle with a full-throated battle cry of “Sa’Kalla!” He joins the Rogue One team on its historic mission to secure the Death Star plans.

Scarif Stormtrooper Commander

Specialist stormtroopers stationed at the top-secret Imperial Military headquarters on Skarif, Shoretroopers patrol the beaches and bunkers of the planetary facility.

Hovertank Driver

Imperial combat drivers operate the Empire’s arsenal of armored repulsor vehicles. »

Valene Kane playing Jyn Erso’s mother in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve known for a while that Mads Mikkelsen is playing Galen Erso, the father of Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso, in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now we know who’s playing her mother too, with actress Valene Kane (The Fall) revealing that she’s set to portray Lyra Erso in December’s Anthology movie.

“I grew up watching Stars Wars and I didn’t believe it was happening until I was filming in Iceland,” said Kane in an interview with told Belfast Live. “[The film] has a really edgy independent vibe.”

Given that Kane shot her scenes in Iceland (and the fact she’s four years younger than Felicity Jones), we can assume that she’ll feature in flashback scenes with a young Jyn Erso and will presumably only have a minor role in the film.

How Red Dwarf: The Movie failed to become a reality

22 September 2016 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at Red Dwarf: The Movie, and how it never got made…

In 1998, BBC decided to pull the plug on Red Dwarf after its eighth series. The final series, aired in 1999, climaxed with an episode titled “Only The Good”, which ended with the words ‘The End’, before being replaced with ‘The Smeg It Is’. And that would be correct, as this was not to be the end of the road for Lister, Rimmer, Cat, Kochanski and Kryten, as co-creator Doug Naylor had big plans for the future of Red Dwarf – he was going to make a movie.

Initially Naylor had planned to do a ninth series of the show, but the BBC rejected his proposal. While it’s not known exactly why the series was turned down, the official Red Dwarf website noted that they now had more than 52 episodes of the show in the can, »

Emotional 'Star Wars' fan film will have you feeling sorry for stormtroopers

21 September 2016 3:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over the years we've gotten to know more about those nameless, faceless Star Wars stormtroopers. Attack of the Clones filled us in on their predecessors, clone troopers, who we also learned more about in the animated series The Clone Wars. And well we really got to know one in The Force Awakens. But this new fan film delves deeper. At first I was like, "There's not a lot to this," but then I was like, "Ohhhh, there's a lot to this." I don't want to say much more before you give it a watch yourself. Written and directed by Benjamin Eck, costumes for the cast were provided by 501st Legion members Taylor Fiore and Rudy Contreras. Here's how the short is described: The film takes place in the rear of an Imperial Walker moments before the doors open onto the battle of Jakku. The story centers around three Stormtroopers, cramped, »

Disney’s Moana gets a new international trailer

19 September 2016 3:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new international trailer has arrived online for Walt Disney Pictures’ next animated offering Moana, which features the voice talents of Dwayne Johnson and newcomer Auli’i Cravalho; watch it below after the official synopsis…

Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one today knows why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds.

Moana is set for release on November 23rd in »

Has the Toronto Film Festival Gotten Too Big for Its Own (or Anybody’s) Good?

19 September 2016 8:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

How big is too big? That’s the question the team behind the Toronto International Film Festival really ought to be asking themselves as the festival, now in its 41st year, draws to a close: The event — the largest of its kind in North America, and arguably the world — hosted more than 1,200 screenings of 296 features this year.

With that many movies in the mix (more than double the Sundance lineup, and fully six times the official selection at Cannes), no outlet — not even Variety — can see and review everything, potential buyers don’t know what to check out, and publicists find it virtually impossible to bring attention to small, deserving films that get steamrolled by the sheer volume on offer.

Naturally, in an event of Tiff’s scale, there are bound to be masterpieces:

Michael Giacchino replaces Alexandre Desplat as composer on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

16 September 2016 1:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like the extensive reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has led to scheduling conflicts for composer Alexandre Desplat, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that the Oscar-winner is no longer available to score the film.

Stepping in as Desplat’s replacement is another Academy Award-winner in Michael Giacchino, who has worked extensively with Disney in the past on the likes of Up, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Cars 2, Inside Out, Zootopia, John Carter, Tomorrowland and the upcoming Doctor Strange.

Giacchino will not have the distinction of becoming the first composer aside from John Williams to score a Star Wars movie. He is also a huge Star Wars fan, and made a cameo as a Stormtrooper in last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was directed by his friend J.J. Abrams.

Entire Star Wars Movie Saga Heads to TNT and TBS in $200M Disney Deal

14 September 2016 12:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Get ready for some old-school binge watching, because all of the Star Wars movies are coming to TNT starting this weekend. Turner Inc., who owns TNT, TBS and several other cable networks, have made a massive deal with Disney in order to secure the broadcast rights for 10 Star Wars movies. Turner had to make a separate deal with 20th Century Fox, who still owns the rights to Star Wars: A New Hope. That brings the total to 11 Star Wars movies the company now has the rights to.

Deadline reported on Wednesday that Turner had made the deal with Disney for around $200 million. The deal includes the Star Wars prequel trilogy, as well as The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. It will also include the next three yet-to-be-released movies, which will be Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars Episode VIII and the upcoming untitled Han Solo spinoff movie. »
