Looks Like Obi-Wan Kenobi Standalone is Happening; In Early Talks With Director

17 August 2017 1:58 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Obi-Wan Kenobi is finally getting his own solo film, at least, it's closer now than it has been according to a new report claiming a director is currently in talks to helm it. Will Ewan McGregor reprise his role?  Who will direct it?  Come inside for more information!

If you're an avid reader of Cinelinx.com (who isn't?) you might have read the headline and thought yourself, "Duh, that's old news.".  That's because for years we've been hot on the trail of the Obi-Wan Kenobi movies for years.  In fact, back in 2014 we reported that the ideas for the spin-off were being developed.  Three years later and it appears Lucasfilm is finally ready to begin working on making this into a reality.

An exclusive from THR, has confirmed our suspicions that an Obi-Wan movie is in the works, but hasn't quite named an actor for the titular role.  The reason »

Lucasfilm Greenlights Obi-Wan Kenobi Film; In Early Talks With Director

17 August 2017 1:58 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

It's official.  Obi-Wan Kenobi is finally getting his own solo film!  Will Ewan McGregor reprise his role?  Who will direct it?  Come inside for more information!

An exclusive from THR, has confirmed our suspicions that an Obi-Wan movie is in the works, but hasn't quite named an actor for the titular role.  The reason for that is due to the fact that this film is in early stages of pre-production.  There is no script, there are no actors, »

'Star Wars': What to Expect From an Obi-Wan Kenobi Movie

17 August 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

If there's one thing that experience can demonstrate, it's that there's a high probability that the stand-alone Obi-Wan Kenobi movie currently in development will feature the Jedi Knight taking on Tusken Raiders.

While it's currently unclear just when the Kenobi movie will be set, there are only three options that make a lot of narrative sense: the period before Kenobi's first (chronological) onscreen appearance in 1999's Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace; the Clone Wars era; and the roughly two decades of time between events in Episode III — Revenge of the Sith and the original Star »

Obi-Wan Kenobi Spinoff In The Works At Lucasfilm; Stephen Daldry To Direct

17 August 2017 12:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Star Wars universe is on a seemingly unstoppable roll at the moment, and that looks set to continue well into the future. After the smashing success of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and with a Han Solo prequel now in development, Lucasfilm has gone ahead and announced their next spinoff. And no surprises for guessing what it is.

Yes, as we all predicted, it’ll revolve around none other than Obi-Wan Kenobi and as THR tells us, Stephen Daldry is in talks to direct. From what we understand, the project is without a script and still in the very, very early stages of development. As such, it’s unclear if Ewan McGregor will pick up the lightsaber for this Star Wars offshoot, though given how keen the Scot has been in the past, we’re inclined to believe McGregor will sign on without a second’s hesitation. »

‘Star Wars’ Spinoff: Obi-Wan Kenobi Film In Works, Stephen Daldry in Talks to Direct — Report

17 August 2017 12:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The “Star Wars” universe is getting much bigger.

As long suspected, The Hollywood Reporter shares that the sci-fi juggernaut series is teeing up a brand new spinoff feature, this one rumored to focus on Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. The outlet reports that Oscar-nominated filmmaker Stephen Daldry “is in early talks for the film,” which would focus on the fan favorite, who has been played over the years by both Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

Details on the project are scarce, as “sources say talks are at the earliest of stages and that the project has no script. If a deal makes, Daldry would oversee the development and writing with Lucasfilm brass. It’s not known at this stage if Ewan McGregor will reprise his role.”

The Galactic Empire Expected To Loom Large Over Ron Howard’s Han Solo Movie

16 August 2017 1:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Long before the First Order reigned over the galaxy, there was the Galactic Empire.

Brought to power under the watchful eye of Emporer Palpatine (Aka Darth Sidious), last Supreme Chancellor of the Republic, the Empire ruled the cosmos with an iron fist, and it wasn’t until Alliance forces cobbled together a resistance effort in the form of Rogue One – which was designed to steal blueprints for the Death Star – that the pendulum swung back in the Republic’s favor. All of these events (and more!) precede A New Hope, the first Star Wars movie ever to grace theaters.

But just as Gareth Edwards broke away from the Skywalker saga to craft his own standalone story, director Ron Howard will circle back to that window of time between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope to delve into the origins of one Han Solo. Set to explore the young »

Star Wars Prequels Almost Got a Totally Different Anakin Skywalker

13 August 2017 3:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For years Star Wars fans could only dream about the events of the Clone Wars and Anakin Skywalker's fall from grace, as first introduced in the original Star Wars trilogy. The power of the dark side that seduced Darth Vader, the legendary piloting skills of Luke's father, it was all only spoken about, until George Lucas announced plans to finally bring Episodes I, II, and III to life, promising to show us the first meeting between Obi-Wan and Anakin and the fateful duel that turned the newly minted Darth Vader into "more machine than man." And George Lucas needed to find perfect actor to play the role. Which wasn't an easy task by any means.

There were hundreds of screen tests before Lucas enlisted young Jake Lloyd to play the future Darth Vader in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. To say the performance wasn't well received is putting »

The Cinematic Universe Fascination: A Bigger Picture Obsession

12 August 2017 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on Hollywood’s fascination with the shared cinematic universe…

Marketing, labelling, packaging. It’s everywhere. In cinematic terms it’s more important than ever. Everything is governed by men with clipboards. Or the modern equivalent. I suppose it’s all tablets now. I’m a cave dwelling Cro-Magnon man, so I wouldn’t know but there’s an inherent need to have terms. What used to be “franchise” building is now “Universe” building. Franchise sounds too clinical. Too much like a money printing exercise. Universe implies creative expression I suppose. The desire to build a world which will just so happen to give studios the ability to home a number of films as opposed to just one.

Does the term “universe” mean that studios are focusing less on bottom line and more on creativity? Well…no. In fact the coining of this term which seems to have rapidly »

Is Star Wars: The Last Jedi Too Dark for Kids?

11 August 2017 9:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Chances are, if you grew up in the late 70s, Star Wars was the first time you ever saw severed limbs on screen. If you grew up a child in the 90s, you endured the slow crippling burnt flesh that saw Anakin Skywalker forever confided to a suit of black armor, turning him into a totalitarian monster in Revenge of the Sith. Star Wars has always been a dark place to inhabit, especially for kids. But the franchise has always been in inclusive affair, and was meant for youngsters first and foremost by child at heart George Lucas. With some recent official news breaking in terms of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the story it tells, many parents are wondering if the next sequel in the Skywalker saga is too dark for younger children. Director Rian Johnson has answered that question.

We live in different times. No less scary »

Actors Almost Cast in Star Wars Movies

10 August 2017 4:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When it comes to the Star Wars movies, it's hard to imagine anyone else in the iconic roles of heroes like Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia. Even the Star Wars prequels most aggressive critics will admit that Ewan McGregor shined as Obi-Wan Kenobi, the character fans of the galaxy far, far away first encountered as embodied by the late Sir Alec Guinness. But as with any film, the casting process is, well, a process. And there have been plenty of legendary actors who almost made their way into this galaxy from a long time ago and very far, far away.

Most fans know that Kurt Russell was among the actors considered for the role of everyone's favorite scruffy nerf herder, Han Solo. He even screen tested with aspiring Luke Skywalker William Katt, who would later star as television's Greatest American Hero. Karen Allen auditioned for Princess Leia, a »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Will Not Kill Off Leia

1 August 2017 6:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Carrie Fisher’s tragic passing last year left Star Wars fans around the world heartbroken, and ever since, one of the biggest questions has been how will Lucasfilm handle the actress’ untimely death moving forward? We know that she’s set to feature in The Last Jedi, and holds a fairly large role in it, from what we hear, but what comes after that?

Leia Organa – once a Princess, now a General – is a legend of cinema, and an icon of Star Wars lore. She’s a talisman held closely by generations of fans and she’s one of the core team members from the very beginning of George Lucas’ Star Wars adventure, four decades ago. The prequels – 1999’s The Phantom Menace, 2002’s Attack Of The Clones and 2005’s Revenge Of The Sith – struggled greatly without her, and there was an almost tangible relief within the fandom when the closing »

Woody Harrelson Confident That Han Solo Will Be “One Of The Funnier” Star Wars Movies

31 July 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Long before Disney’s Han Solo anthology film became embroiled in production woes – Phil Lord and Chris Miller out; Ron Howard in – the creatives involved in the Star Wars spinoff consistently compared it to a swashbuckling Western and even a heist movie, and we’re now hearing that it could become one of the funniest entries in the franchise yet.

Similar to how Rogue One carved out room between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Ron Howard’s origin story will whisk viewers back in time to uncover the backstory behind the galaxy’s greatest smuggler, where Alden Ehrenreich will be playing the young Han Solo. Flanked by a cast that includes such A-listers as Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Donald Glover (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and Woody Harrelson (War For the Planet of the Apes), we know that Howard is directing from a screenplay penned by Star Wars mainstay Lawrence Kasdan and his son, »

Twin Peaks season 3 episode 12 review: Let’s Rock

31 July 2017 4:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joe Matar Jul 31, 2017

Lengthy conversations abound in this week's Twin Peaks. Is David Lynch pulling our proverbial leg?

This review contains spoilers.

See related  American Horror Story renewed for seasons 8 and 9 American Horror Story: Roanoke might be its best season yet American Horror Story season 6: Roanoke Chapter 10 Ryan Murphy: celebrating a showrunner who never holds back

3.12 Let's Rock

My going theory on Twin Peaks: The Return was that David Lynch alternates between gentle, plot-developing episodes and punishing dives into existential postmodern horror. But Part 12 defecates all over my theory, because I do believe this was the least horrific episode yet. There wasn’t a bit of blood or vomit! That said, it was still punishing, but in a completely different way.

A major feature of The Return has been drawn-out scenes of stilted conversations and Part 12 really pushes the viewer’s tolerance on this front. This episode »

"Darth Vader" - More Machine, Than Man

29 July 2017 7:12 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Marvel Comics' "Darth Vader" #4, available August 2, 2017, is written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Giuseppe Camuncoli, with covers by Camuncoli and Rafael Albuquerque:

"...the first mission for 'Vader' doesn't go so well. 

"The 'Dark Side' is a way of power. But no one said it would be easy..."

In Marvel's "Darth Vader" #1, also written by Soule and illustrated by Camuncoli, with covers by Jim Cheung, Mark Brooks, Adi Granov, Phil Noto, John Tyler Christopher and Skottie Young:

"...when 'Anakin Skywalker' fell, both to the pull of the dark side and to the blade of 'Obi-Wan Kenobi', he rose back up, more machine than man. Having lost everything that he once held dear, the one who was prophesized to bring balance to the 'Force' instead chose a darker path.

Rian Johnson Hopes Star Wars: The Last Jedi Will Give “Emotional Satisfaction” To Carrie Fisher’s Fans

17 July 2017 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s no escaping it – the death of Carrie Fisher is a loss that will be felt deeply by large swathes of Star Wars fans for as long as Disney makes new films set in that galaxy far, far away. Indeed, it’s the ongoing rebooted franchise that makes her sudden absence so keenly felt by so many people. For the time being, this weight is being shouldered for the most part by director Rian Johnson who, by virtue of nothing more than tragic circumstance, finds himself at the helm of Leia Organa’s last movie – Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The Top 25 Box Office Blockbusters of the 21st Century

13 July 2017 7:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No subjective “best” list here, this one is based on stats. As the 21st century turns 16, we’ve got the 25 biggest-grossing domestic blockbusters to date.

Check the stunning list below, which is unlike any previous period in movie business history. (We’re using adjusted totals to account for changing ticket prices. Box Office Mojo’s top 200 all-time adjusted list is here.) Here’s what we learned by doing the numbers:

The 21st Century Has Delivered Many of the Biggest Hits in History

25 of the 100 all-time biggest-grossing films have come from the first 16 years of this century. 1984 to 2000, the era that perfected the modern blockbuster and mass release of movies, brought 17. So the 21st century has been an era of major hits.

But oddly, the first current-century films on the all-time-grossers list places #11: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” And “Avatar” is #14. (This is where adjusting becomes essential — unadjusted, the ten »

Great Job, Internet!: This full-length remake of Revenge Of The Sith is charmingly shitty

10 July 2017 9:44 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

There are many good projects that can be completed over five days. You could completely clean out your garage, or start a garden. You could read a book or two, or make serious headway on starting one. You could beat a game you’d been putting off forever. If you have four friends, some facility with After Effects, and access to an enormous house, you could hit your friends with sticks and shit in an almost shot-for-shot remake of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith.

It’s not the full thing, which clocks in at (ugh) two hours and 20 minutes, but it’s surprisingly comprehensive and maybe a little tighter, using John Williams’ original score with new vocal performances and sound effects. The fight scene against Count Dooku is supplemented with cartoony kung-fu thwacks; since there are only five actors, many roles are played by the same »

Last Jedi Leak Reveals New Friend for R2-D2?

8 July 2017 9:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Has Star Wars: The Last Jedi gone to the birds? That's the rumor that's been circling for some months now. But what exactly are these birds and what do they have to do with R2-D2? A new fan-rendered sketch shows off a scene that is expected to be a favorite. Though it is just a fleeting moment of whimsy and humor.

Making Star Wars has this latest rumor, and they have been pretty accurate so far with their set leaks. One of the things they've often reported on is the Porgs of Ahch-To. These are referred to as sacred birds that inhabit Luke Skywalker's Jedi exile planet. They are said to have a nest with at least a dozen newborn hatchlings inside. The latest news is that Chewbacca and R2-D2 get a few fun moments with these water fowl before whiney Kylo Ren and his Knights show up to ruin the party. »
