The Cannes Film Festival is currently in full swing in the south of France, and one of the movies being sold to worldwide buyers at the fest is Numb, At the Edge of the End. Vmi Worldwide has debuted the first trailer for this indie thriller, as it seeks international buyers at Cannes. The film doesn't have a release date in place yet, and it doesn't seem that the film has a domestic distributor quite yet, but that may change at the festival.
The story follows Kurt Matheson (Hayden Christensen) a war veteran with Ptsd (post traumatic stress disorder) who perceives that the end of the world is coming. After establishing a relationship with a dubious Messiah (Harvey Keitel), he leaves his normal life and begins the construction of a shelter underground, training himself in an extreme way, at the cost of losing everything. He soon makes people believe he is insane. »
With Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (not the official title) underway, we can expect to see snappers getting some pictures from the set. We had our first official look at the cast a couple of months ago, but this set photo has given us our first glimpse at Alden Ehrenreich as the iconic smuggler. Check out the photo here…
…Looking ahead to this December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi now, and the new Japanese poster for the movie has given us one more reason to be excited. According to the poster’s tag line, the second part of the new trilogy will feature “the most shocking truth in Star Wars history”. Check it out here…

It looks like the final meeting on Mustafar between Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith almost played out much differently to what we saw in the final chapter of the Prequel Trilogy, with Lucasfilm concept artist Ian McCaig revealing that George Lucas’ original plan was to have Padme attempting to end the threat of the newly-anointed Dark Lord of the Sith.
“Right behind his back, [Padme] is starting the Rebellion to overthrow him, because Padme can see the he is becoming a monster,” said McCaig (via Comic Book). “At the end, on Mustafar, when she goes to see [Anakin], she has a knife in her hands. She gets off the ship with the knife, she runs up and throws her arms around him, and he lets her. She’s got the knife to the back of [Anakin’s] neck and she’s going to kill him. »

Rogue One‘s motley crew of traitors, saboteurs, terrorists and criminals made for a fascinating departure from usual Star Wars fare, their all-too-brief on-screen appearances leading fans to speculate about the exciting adventures they’d been on prior to the events of the film. One of the biggest questions was how Cassian and his droid buddy K-2So came to travel with one another. It’s something that many fans have been wondering about and now, a new comic book is going to fill in that particular blank, telling us precisely how Cassian first encountered K-2So and liberated him from the slavery of Imperial servitude.
The full title is Star Wars: Rogue One – Cassian & K-2So Special #1, to be written by Duane Swierczynski and illustrated by Fernando Blanco. As yet, we don’t know what the meat of the story is, but we do have the cover for »

Sneak Peek your first look @ young 'Han Solo' (Alden Ehrenreich) from Chris Miller and Phil Lord's currently shooting feature "Star Wars: Han Solo" (aka "Red Cup") following 'Solo' in his early years as a 'space smuggler', co-starring Emilia Clarke ("Game Of Thrones"), opening May 25, 2018:
"...'Han Solo' was a cadet in the 'Empire' stationed in a forced labor camp where 'Wookiees' were made to do slave labor for the Empire. It wasn't long before Han developed disgust for the Empire's treatment of the Wookiee people, and his friendship with the Wookiee slave 'Chewbacca' led to Han helping in a prison break. Han and Chewbacca became partners, and the two took smuggling jobs from various people, reputable and otherwise..."

Is Mace Windu getting his own Star Wars spin-off movie? That's completely possible, as Disney and Lucasfilm have previously announced that at least one new Star Wars movie is coming every year for infinity. We know that a spin-off movie is planned for 2020, but the title and subject has yet to be announced. Could we be getting a standalone adventure about one of the greatest Jedi that ever lived? Maybe. Maybe not. But we're at least getting a prequel comic about Mace Windu.
That's right, Samuel L. Jackson's purple toting Bmf is coming to the pages of Marvel in a new 5-issue miniseries that will expand Mace's legend in the official Star Wars cinematic canon. Star Wars News dropped the exciting announcement. And we have the official PR direct from the source.
Having seen Revenge of the Sith at least 1000 times this week because of my son’s newfound obsession for it, I’ve grown to be more and more irritated with Padme. In Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones she was 100 times cooler. At least in those films you saw a little action, her bravery, and yes, her shooting a gun. But in Revenge of the Sith it’s all so mushy and lovey dovey that my son asks me to fast forward every single scene she’s in. And I don’t blame him. Her pregnancy must have hit her right in

As a parent one of the biggest blessings I’ve received this month is my 4-year-old son’s new obsession with Stars Wars. I’m pretty sure he’s watched Revenge of the Sith at least 25 times and he’s still watching it at least once a day. While watching this film might be getting a little old, it’s still 100 times better than seeing the same episode of Bubble Guppies or Team Oomizoomi over and over again. Honestly, it’s really hard to complain. Speaking of Star Wars, I just came across these gems today. If you’re a green thumb and love planting, you

Amongst the wreckage that is the Star Wars prequel trilogy, there are a few notable moments that truly stand out as the worst. Jar Jar Binks tops the list, with Darth Vader's tortured 'Nooooooooooo!' and Anakin's sand speech not far behind. But also on this list is the death of Padme Amidala, who died of a broken heart. It wasn't always meant to be, though. And in the original Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith ending, George Lucas had something much better planned for the birth mother of twins Luke and Leia Skywalker.
Even though she is one of the most acclaimed actresses working today, and a huge fan favorite amongst genre nerds, Natalie Portman has never been treated fairly when it comes to her big geek franchises. Thor basically scrubbed her from existence, and in the Star Wars canon, the fierce leader was brought down by her emotions. »
Even though Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith is the best of the prequel trilogy in the Star Wars saga, it’s still a far cry from measuring up to the original trilogy. One of the biggest issues with the final chapter in the story of how Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) became Darth Vader is how […]

While nothing has been confirmed, there has been talk over the past few years that LucasFilm may be bringing back Ewan McGregor to play Obi-Wan Kenobi in a new Star Wars spin-off. Some fans were hoping this might be confirmed during Star Wars Celebration last month, but that wasn't the case, as fans keep holding out hope for a stand-alone movie about the iconic Jedi knight. Obi-Wan Kenobi himself, Ewan McGregor, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, where he was asked yet again if he would love to return for a Star Wars spin-off. Here's what he had to say below, joking about how many times he's been asked about an Obi-Wan spin-off.
"It's got to the point where I've been asked, and I don't mean any offense, I've been asked this question so many times, and I answer the questions when I'm asked them, because I was brought up like that, »
One cheesy, pain-filled 'Noooooooooooo!' Is getting changed to a more dignified 'No!' in the latest pages of a Marvel comic that chronicles Darth Vader's early career as a Sith Lord. This 'fixes' one of the more embarrassing scenes in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, and even provides some insight into what happened in the moments directly following one of Star Wars most slammed moments in history.
George Lucas is no stranger to changing Star Wars, so he shouldn't wince too much now that some of his own material is being reworked for the official canon. But Anakin Skywalker becoming Frankenstein, complete with his extremely cringe-worthy exclamation, is one of the most hated things about the prequel trilogy, perhaps only second to Jar Jar Binks.
With The Last Jedi on the horizon, a couple new Star Wars book releases over the last few months have offered some interesting teases of what's (potentially) to come, and added other key details into the new canon. As such, it's time to break it all down and get a grasp on the current "State of the Galaxy."
Obviously, I’m a little behind on this one as a couple of big novels have launched since our last State of the Galaxy update. However, that means there’s plenty to talk about, but if for some reason you haven't checked out these books and still want to be surprised, I'm going to be blasting full bore into spoiler territority.

I’ll keep this short, as word of this landed online before the book launched, but it’s an important revelation for a major (whether »

The most fearsome villain in the entire galaxy returns for an all-new series! Yes, this June prepare for Darth Vader #1 – the all-new ongoing series from superstar writer Charles Soule (Poe Dameron, Astonishing X-Men) who teams with chartbusting artist Giuseppe Camuncoli (Amazing Spider-Man) to chronicle the epic rise of one of the greatest villains in all of fiction!
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. Now, in a story set directly after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, he must take his first steps into a darker world as…Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith!

The Dark Lord of the Sith returns this June as Marvel launches its second Darth Vader comic book series, with writer Charles Soule (Poe Dameron, Astonishing X-Men) and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli (Amazing Spider-Man) picking up the story in the immediate aftermath of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith to chronicle the epic rise of one of the greatest villains in all of fiction.

If you’ve ever imagined a world in which Tommy Wiseau’s (in)famous delivery of “Oh hi, Mark” was directed toward Mark Hamill, look no further. The folks at PistolShrimps have put together a video in which the writer/director/star of “The Room” finds himself in a galaxy far, far away. Watch below.
It begins with Wiseau replacing Daisy Ridley in the final scene of “The Force Awakens,” asking Luke Skywalker how his sex life is and playfully tossing him a football, before he jumps to “Revenge of the Sith” and tells Anakin he’s tearing him apart — a declaration that the future Darth Vader repays with some Force Lightning. Wiseau even appears opposite Luke in the trailer for this December’s “The Last Jedi,” again throwing that football and getting a worse punishment than Anakin gave him. »

Even Superman celebrates Star Wars Day!
Henry Cavill‘s adorable pooch, Kal, was completely in the spirit of “May the Fourth Be with You” as the actor showed his fans Thursday on Instagram, when his dog jumped around to “Battle of the Heroes” from Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
“Jedi Training,” Cavill, 33, wrote. “#Kal #MayThe4thBeWithYou.”
Cavill has called Kal his “traveling bear” on Instagram as his social media feed has become full of cute photos featuring his new best friend.
“These past few days have been very busy with travel to new destinations for my next job. What »

Last week, a new report claimed that two Han Solo spin-off character names had been unearthed, although they were never confirmed and it isn't known who is actually playing these characters quite yet. Today another unconfirmed report reveals three more character names, along with the three actors who are portraying them. Although there aren't any specific character details that go along with these names, if you want to avoid any potential Spoilers, stop reading now.
While these names have yet to be confirmed, Making Star Wars reports that these characters are Rebolt, portrayed by Ian Kenny, Moloch played by Harley Durst and Moloch's unnamed henchman, played by Tien Hoang. We reported about Ian Kenny's casting back in March, but this is the first we're hearing of Moloch and Moloch's Henchman, and the inclusion of Harley Durst and Tien Hoang. It isn't known if they are playing creatures in costumes »
