Oscar Isaac Talks 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and Going After X-Men's Apocalypse (Exclusive)

19 March 2015 4:38 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A few days ago at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, we got to sit down with Oscar Isaac, the charismatic star of "Inside Llewyn Davis" and last year's amazing (and amazingly under-seen) "A Most Violent Year." We were there to chat about his new movie, the deeply brilliant sci-fi film "Ex Machina," wherein he plays a mad scientist and tech billionaire who recruits an underling (played by Domhnall Gleeson) to test out some cutting edge new artificial intelligence and things go awry. It's awesome and we'll be bringing you lots more from the movie (and our interview with Isaac) in the weeks ahead.

But while we were chatting, I couldn't help but bring up the fact that he will soon be seen in a little art house movie called "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," directed by some guy named J.J. Abrams. So I quizzed him »

Die Hard, Pulp Fiction: What's your favourite Bruce Willis movie?

19 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Many happy returns to Bruce Willis, who celebrates his 60th birthday today (March 19)!

Ever since finding fame in the '80s thanks to sitcom Moonlighting and explosive action movie Die Hard, Bruce has been a regular on our screens, appearing in films great, good, not-so-good and Cop Out.

With John McClane himself celebrating the big 6-0, Digital Spy staff reminisce about their favourite Bruce Willis movies, while you can vote for your personal favourite in the poll below...

Die Hard - Morgan Jeffery (TV Editor)

There's a million reasons to love 1988's Die Hard - the colourful supporting characters like Al (Reginald VelJohnson), Ellis (Hart Bochner) and Argyle (De'voreaux White), action cinema's greatest ever villain in Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), Michael Kamen's brilliantly '80s score...

But the big reason is Bruce. Sure, New York cop John McClane was a tough guy, but what Willis brought to the part »

Apparently J.J. Abrams Is Frontrunner To Direct Star Wars: Episode IX

18 March 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The final movie in the new Star Wars trilogy isn't set to hit theaters until 2019, but that hasn't stopped Latino Review from doing some digging and coming up with the name of a potential director for it. According to them, J.J. Abrams is looking likely to return to helm Star Wars Episode IX after Rian Johnson (Looper, Brick) handles the middle instalment, which is due for release in 2017. Apparently Disney/LucasFilm are very pleased with what Abrams delivered with The Force Awakens, and despite rumors of behind-the-scenes disagreements, it seems he's the man they want in charge of Episode IX. Of course, we'll have to take this as a rumor too for now, and there is a lot that can change before cameras start rolling on this project, but we'll keep you posted if we get any updates. »

J.J. Abrams rumored to direct Star Wars: Episode IX

18 March 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Old reports about the future installments in the ever-expanding Star Wars film franchise – which will soon consist of one film every year – made it seem that Star Wars: The Force Awakens helmer J.J. Abrams would be handing over the keys to the beloved saga after only one film. Now, we’ve learned that that may not be the case.

Looper helmer Rian Johnson was once rumored to be writing and directing both Episode VIII and Episode IX, which hit theaters in 2017 and 2019, but the latest official announcement from Disney only provided confirmation that Johnson would be taking the helm of Episode VIII. Now, Latino Review is reporting that Abrams is the frontrunner to direct Episode IX, “despite his absence from the production team on the next installments, his commitment to other ongoing franchises and early rumors of disagreements between him and the Disney Team.”

Reportedly, those at Disney who »

J.J. Abrams is Rumored to Return to Direct 'Star Wars: Episode IX'

18 March 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Even though Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn't slated to arrive for nine months, and we only just confirmed Looper director Rian Johnson would be at the helm of Star Wars: Episode VIII, coming in May of 2017, that's not stopping the rumors from starting on who will be at the helm of Star Wars: Episode IX. After all, Disney wants a new film from the galaxy far, far away arriving every year (like Star Wars: Rogue One in 2016) for the foreseeable future, so why wouldn't they be planning ahead? And Latino Review has the first rumor of a frontrunner director for Episode IX as The Force Awakens helmer J.J. Abrams. Again, this is just a rumor for now, and since it's so early, take it with a huge grain of salt. As of now, I'm inclined to believe that while the studio may want Abrams back for Star Wars: Episode IX, »

12 March 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens hitting in December this year, and the first official Star Wars spin-off coming a year later in December of 2016, we've assumed that the winter month would always be the timeframe for new films in the galaxy far, far away to get released. However, StarWars.com has confirmed information from a call between Disney CEO Bob Iger and Disney shareholders where it was revealed that Star Wars: Episode VIII, which has been confirmed to be directed by Looper director Rian Johnson, will arrive on May 26th, 2017. May was previously the month of Star Wars, so the change isn't surprising. There were rumblings that J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy originally wanted Disney to push Star Wars: Episode VII to May of 2016, but the studio definitely didn't want to wait that long for their cash cow to start giving milk.
