Rogue One gets title re-brand and first cast photo

17 August 2015 1:22 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The D23 Expo over the weekend delivered tons of Star Wars news, including the confirmation of Colin Trevorrow directing the third film in the new sequel series. We also got word that the first stand-alone Star Wars movie, Rogue One, will now be called Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, rather than The Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One.

Director Gareth Edwards or indeed any of the cast were present at the show, as they are currently shooting the film over in Pinewood, but an official cast photo was released.

Take a look at this.

Check out the full cast list as displayed at the Expo below.

D23 Expo 2015 – D23 Expo, the ultimate Disney fan event, brings together all the past, present and future of Disney entertainment under one roof. Taking place August 14-16, this year marks the fourth D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center and promises to be the biggest and most spectacular yet. »

Official Cast Photo For Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

15 August 2015 4:09 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A while back, we got word that the first Star Wars spin-off would take us back to a time before A New Hope, chronicling the daring rebel mission to relieve the Empire of the plans to the Death Star. Not only that, it would come to our screen under the name Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. Well, D23 has thrown us a curve ball, and director Gareth Edward’s (Godzilla) entry into the Star Wars universe now has a slightly different name, now being called Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. O.k., we were always just going to call it Rogue One or Star Wars: Rogue One so this doesn’t really matter, but it’s still a strange one. Anyway, with that head scratcher out of the way, the official cast list has being released, and beyond those we already knew were involved, namely Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, »

Why Guillermo del Toro Dropped Justice League Dark

19 July 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After spending years developing the project, Guillermo del Toro made a big move a few weeks ago when it was announced that he would no longer going to be making the DC Comics film Justice League Dark. At the time of this breaking news, no official reason was given for the break - but now the director has gone on record about the situation, and has revealed that it's all because of Pacific Rim 2. The Daily Beast caught up with the Crimson Peak director last week at San Diego Comic-Con, and it was during their interview that the filmmaker explained his departure from what would have been his fourth comic book adaptation after Blade II, Hellboy, and Hellboy II: The Golden Army. He explained that Justice League Dark is in a good place right now, but that he simply couldn't make the timing work. Said del Toro, Warners liked »

Sdcc: Wesley Snipes has met with Marvel about another Blade movie

9 July 2015 3:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wesley Snipes, star of all three Blade films, revealed during an interview with Deadline that he has met with Marvel Studios about reprising his role as the vampire-human hybrid for a future Blade project.

When asked about making a fourth film based on the character, Snipes said, “[Blade 4] is controlled by Marvel and we did have a really productive and a wonderful meeting and we discussed a number of things. I don’t know where it’s on their schedule at this point, that hasn’t been decided. I guess it’s still up in the air.”

Snipes was also asked if he would be interested in joining the Marvel Universe in another way, to which he replied, “That’s a possibility too. I’ve always been a fan of these pieces and adaptations, and [it’d] be nice to be a part of the family again. But if we don’t [do] a »

Watch: Two New Trailers for Guillermo del Toro's 'Crimson Peak'

13 May 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Guillermo del Toro can be a bit hit and miss, I haven't been much of a fan of his Hellboy movies (though I did somewhat enjoy the first one) and Pacific Rim was, well, we'll leave Pacific Rim alone, but I have loved some of his earlier work, films such as The Devil's Backbone, Cronos and Blade II, so here's to hoping Crimson Peak delivers in the vein of earlier del Toro as opposed to his later studio features. One thing that has me thinking positively is the fact his latest supernatural horror is rated R and it also doesn't hurt he's got Jessica Chastain and Tom Hiddleston starring. Today a new trailer for the movie arrived, offering a new peek at the movie in which Mia Wasikowska plays an aspiring author torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. We meet her in »

New sci-fi feature ‘Robot Fighter’ takes to the dunes of Star Wars

20 April 2015 3:38 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

In the week that possibly the biggest teaser trailer of the year hits (for Star Wars: The Force Awakens), a new science-fiction film takes to the very same dunes featured in the classic Return of the Jedi – as actress and producer Tracey Birdsall’s new film Robot Fighter is currently lensing on many of the same locations as Jedi; notably the Salton Sea, Yuma, Arizona.

Robot Fighter isn’t without its Star Wars ties, thematically either. Director Neil Johnson’s space chronicle fixes on the overthrow of humanity by Artificial Intelligence and the determined rebel who goes up against the droid empire.

Starring alongside Birdsall is Star Trek III : The Search for Spock’s Stephen Manley, Daz Crawford (Blade II), Livvy Stubenrauch (Frozen), Erin Bethea (Fireproof), Tim McGrath, Ashley Park and Aaron Jacques.

Robot Fighter, the first in a  potential new sci-fi series, will be released in 2016.

Trailer Trashin’: Guillermo del Toro Returns to Horror in Crimson Peak

18 February 2015 8:25 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. I hope you all had a good Valentine’s Day weekend, and that a lot of you got out to see Kingsman: The Secret Service, which is totally awesome. This coming Sunday also brings us the 87th Academy Awards, during which I’ll be both hoping Michael Keaton wins Best Actor for Birdman, and cursing the Academy for not giving a Best Animated Feature nomination to The Lego Movie. But in this meantime, this week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ is our first look at one of my most anticipated films of the fall, Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak.

Premise: In the aftermath of a family tragedy, a young author is torn between the love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers. »
