Ciara McAvoy: The Hollywood Interview

Sweet Painting Lady: Ciara McAvoy Resurrects the Art of the Movie Poster

By Alex Simon

“Art is not just a part of my life. It Is my life. It gives me breath. We are eternally entwined.” This is the mantra of Scottish artist Ciara McAvoy, a painter renowned for her stunning oil work, which the Glasgow-born artist has used to create some of the most iconic movie posters in modern times. Inspired by her French grandfather, a pre-ww II portraitist who gained fame at Montmartre, McAvoy’s interest in drawing and painting film-related subjects began after her first viewing of Star Wars as a child.

“I started drawing at eight and painted and sold my first oil, entitled Cops, when I was only twelve years old, so I guess I can say that I was born to be an artist," McAvoy recalled in a 2014 interview with David Bateman of Stv Glasgow. »

Star Wars Rebels: Why you should look forward to Season Two

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church on why you should look forward to Star Wars Rebels season two…

It goes without saying the Star Wars franchise has been undergoing a renaissance with the upcoming release of The Force Awakens. Excitement has just been mounting more and more with each trailer, press release and interview that has surfaced. Lately the Star Wars franchise has really expanded beyond the big screen and onto television with the much-loved animated series The Clone Wars and, more recently, Star Wars Rebels, a series that takes place in between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

When Rebels was first announced, many fans feared it would be a “Disneyfied” version of Star Wars now that Disney owns Lucasfilm (many were also sore over Clone Wars’ cancellation). There’s also the fact the word ‘prequel’ still causes any Star Wars fan to sweat with anxiety. Over time Rebels proved to »

5 Star Wars Video Game Ideas EA Should Revisit

19 May 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The dry spell of Star Wars video games is coming to an end this year with the release of Battlefront and Disney Infinity 3.0.  While these games are sure to fill the void and scratch the itch Star Wars gamers have had for years, there are still some games we’d love to see made under the new regime.

Star Wars is about to explode on the scene in ways it hasn’t in over a decade.  With the new series of films kicking off later this year, plus the end to the dry spell on games set in the galaxy far, far away.  For many Star Wars fans, the video games were the ultimate way to immerse themselves in the epic story and live out their dreams of battling the forces of evil (or crushing rebellions).  Sadly, however, it’s been awhile since we’ve been able to do so with any new titles. »

218 days until Star Wars: Did Darth Vader #5 just set the stage for Palpatine's immortality?

14 May 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Did you know that Emperor Palpatine didn’t die at the end of “Return of the Jedi”? In the original Expanded Universe lore, the Emperor could not be killed by a mere betrayal by his apprentice. One anticipated since the moment Anakin Skywalker pledged himself to the Dark Side. No. Originally Palpatine had an endless supply of clone bodies waiting for him to transfer his essence/soul into upon death. While all that was wiped away when Disney merged the Star Wars storylines, parts of the process remained canon. In “Revenge of the Sith,” Palpatine lays down some Sith mythology about Darth Plagueis and his ability to save others from death through midichlorian manipulation. It’s only a hop and skip from that to “manipulate the Force to live forever.” Which makes this reveal in Darth Vader #5 all the more interesting. Image Credit: Marvel Entertainment.

George Lucas: 25 Things You Didn't Know About the 'Star Wars' Guru

14 May 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

George Lucas didn't just create the "Star Wars" universe. The filmmaker, who turns 71 on May 14, pretty much created the cinematic universe we live in now, the ones whose cornerstones include the Thx sound system at your multiplex, the Pixar movies that have dominated animation for the past 20 years, and the Industrial Light & Magic special-effects house, whose aesthetic has ruled the Hollywood blockbuster for nearly four decades. He's the pioneer of the effects-driven action spectacle and the conversion from celluloid to digital, the two trends that, for better and worse, have defined Hollywood's output for nearly 20 years.

As ubiquitous as Lucas and his creations loom in our cinematic dreamscapes, there's still a lot that most people don't know about him, from how he got his start to the famous folks who mentored him or were mentored by him, from the size of his fortune to what he plans to do now »

Diego Luna In Talks For Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One

13 May 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Gareth Edwards is in the process of adding another actor to his cast for Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. According to Variety, Diego Luna is now in talks for one of the lead roles alongside Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed and Ben Mendelsohn. Edwards showed up at the Star Wars Celebration convention in California recently to offer some more details about the movie, which will be set between Revenge Of The Sith and A New Hope, and features a group of rebel fighters pulling off a daring plan to steal the schematics for the first Death Star. Luna appears to be close to a role as one of those brave rebel types, serving alongside Jones and Ahmed, while Mendelsohn will be bringing his intensity to the main villain. Edwards is reportedly looking to build a larger ensemble for this one, with its mission dynamic resembling something more like The Dirty Dozen »

13 May 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One has added yet another cast member with Diego Luna signing on for the highly-anticipated spinoff. Actor Ben Mendelsohn, who has long been rumored to to star, has now been confirmed to play the primary villain. They join a cast that already includes Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed and Sam Claflin.

The story revolves around a group of rebel fighters who embark on a mission to steal plans for the original Death Star. The story will take place between the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, but closer chronologically to the latter film. Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed and are all said to be playing rebel fighters, but it isn't known who Sam Claflin is playing quite yet.

Production is scheduled to begin this summer at Pinewood Studios in London, under the direction of Gareth Edwards. »

Director Gareth Edwards's spinoff of the upcoming Star Wars trilogy will follow a band of rebels attempting to hijack the Empire's Death Star.

Diego Luna Joins 'Star Wars: Rogue One', Ben Mendelsohn to Play Film's Villain

13 May 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Diego Luna has joined Felicity Jones in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, the Star Wars spinoff to be directed by Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards. Luna will play a co-lead alongside Jones as members of a group of solders who steal the plans for the Death Star. The news comes from Variety that also seems to confirm earlier word that Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler) and Ben Mendelsohn will also star with the latter serving as the film's primary villain. Big shocker there, Mendelsohn and Christoph Waltz ought to star in a documentary on how to get typecast as a villain. The film takes place between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope and it would stand to assume the mission to steal the plans is successful based on the events of the original Star Wars. Star Wars: Rogue One hits theaters on Dec. »

Diego Luna Joins 'Star Wars: Rogue One'

13 May 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You'd have to go all the way back to 2013's "Elysium" to mark the last time we saw Diego Luna on the big screen, and while he's been busy producing and directing a handful of films, he's returning to multiplexes in a major way. Variety reports that the actor has joined Felicity Jones and Riz Ahmed in "Star Wars: Rogue One." He'll be playing one of the rebels who plot to steal the plans for the Death Star in the film that's set between "Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge Of The Sith" and "Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope." And while the trade also lists Ben Mendelsohn as the villain of this film, the actor has been playing very coy about it.  "I can say that I’ve heard the rumors too, that they are very exciting rumors, but that I can in true honesty say that »

Hunting Elephants | Review

Beasts of Burden: Levi’s Slapstick Heist Film Runs Amuck

For his sophomore film, Israeli director Reshef Levi inserts Patrick Stewart alongside the likes of Sasson Gabai, Moni Moshonov, and Moshe Ivgy for a comedic bank heist in Hunting Elephants. While there’s mild amusement to be had amongst this group of sassy old codgers, the whole endeavor feels a bit forced. Snippets of characters directly addressing the camera frequently distract as Levi and co-writer Regey Levi cut across timespans in attempt to give the scenario added depth. Reinforcing stereotypes rather than playing with them, Levi’s broad scenario feels tonally akin to something like Last Vegas (2013) but entrenched in more archaic stagnation.

Daniel (Zvika Hadar) is a security guard at a bank. While explaining to his twelve year old son Jonathan (Gil Blank) how the new security system works, replete with all the proper codes needed to gain entry, »
