'Star Wars Episode VIII': Director Rian Johnson Commemorates "Home Stretch" With Set Photo

8 June 2016 6:46 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens set the world on fire when it hit theaters last December. Over its first weekend, the film secured its place in the box office record books with the most successful domestic opening of any film ever. Its success also carried on in the overseas market, and by the end of its run (which, interestingly enough, only officially finished a couple days ago), it broke $2 billion worldwide, coming in at number three worldwide, behind only James Cameron's Titanic and Avatar.

What's more, the film managed to please a great majority of hardcore Star Wars fans out there, many of whom lost faith in the series during the theatrical run of the prequel trilogy back in the 2000s. Director J.J. Abrams managed to accomplish the impossible, and brought back the spirit of the series that many feared would never get back to its former glory (and yes, »

Bruce Willis: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

6 June 2016 7:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Most Bruce Willis movies right now seem to head to DVD almost immediately. We've gone through them, in search of a gem...

It’s not exactly clear when Bruce Willis went from being a big star whose name filled seats and sold tickets to being a guy whose name you see on the cover of so many direct-to-dvd and VOD outings (albeit ones that sometimes get a week or two in a cinema, in essence to promote the VOD release), but I’d like to go out on a limb here and say that Kevin Smith’s mouth might be to blame.

During one of his filmed Q&A sessions that ended up winging its way to eager fanboys and girls like myself on DVD back in the late oughts, Smith talked at length about what it was like to work on the much-anticipated fourth instalment of the Die Hard franchise, »

‘Marauders’ Trailer: Bruce Willis Is at the Center of a Bank Robbery Conspiracy

1 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

In recent years, Bruce Willis has been sleepwalking his way through a lot of action thrillers. That’s truly a shame since we know he’s still capable of doing great work in movies like Looper and Moonrise Kingdom. Sadly, a new bank heist movie called Marauders doesn’t appear to be one of his better choices, even […]

Oscar Isaac Holds Up Star Wars: Episode VIII As The “Dark Second Chapter”

19 May 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When the credits rolled on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and John Williams’ unmistakable score blared through the speakers, it was clear that J.J. Abrams had teed up the beginning of a journey – one to be told across three mainline Episodes.

With Rogue One primed to spin off from Disney’s core arc later this year, it is Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper) that will steering fans back to the future with the release of Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017, and it looks as though testing times lie ahead for Rey, Finn, Poe and the rest of the heroes (Bb-8 included).

More News From The Web

That’s according to Oscar Isaac, who spoke to Rolling Stone magazine in anticipation of the imminent X-Men: Apocalypse. Unsurprisingly, talk soon turned to the stars, where Isaac held up Episode VIII as the “dark second chapter” of Disney and Lucasfilm’s rebooted juggernaut.

Why Focus Features Ditched Horror Flicks and Returned to Its Indie Roots

14 May 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three months after a dramatic overhaul swept out one regime and replaced it with another, Focus Features is out in force at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The company is premiering Oscar-hopeful “Loving,” snapping up international distribution rights to “American Honey” with Shia Labeouf, and is reintroducing itself as a maker of indie films after a failed foray into genre and horror pictures. Under chairman Peter Kujawski, what’s old is new again.

“We’re really going back to what people still associate Focus’ name and brand with and what Focus had originally been doing, which is being a specialty company,” Kujawski told Variety.

That means leaving the films like “Sinister” and “London Has Fallen” to studio parent, Universal Pictures, and doubling down on prestige and filmmaker-driven fare such as “The Theory of Everything” or the upcoming spy thriller “The Coldest City” with Charlize Theron and James McAvoy.

Why Alden Ehrenreich Is the Perfect Young Han Solo

11 May 2016 4:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After more than 2,000 auditions and months of rumors and hearsay, Disney and Lucasfilm have finally found their brand new scruffy looking nerf herder in Alden Ehrenreich. Yes, the Hail Caesar! actor will be playing a young version of Han Solo in the Phil Lord and Chris Miller directed Star Wars spinoff tentatively titled Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. And it's hard to agrue that this casting isn't nearly perfect. Especially considering some of the other choices that have been teased over the earlier part of this year.

Though Disney has yet to release an official statement on the casting, Deadline has reported that Ehrenreich is in final negotiations to pilot the Millennium Falcon. The studio brought in seemingly every actor in Hollywood who maybe would fit the role and Ehrenreich beat out the likes of Kingsman star Taron Egerton, Transformers: Age of Extinction star Jack Reynor and even Dave Franco, »

A Slew Of Set Pics From 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' Are Here!

2 May 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Director Rian Johnson (Looper) is hard at work on Star Wars: Episode VIII- the sequel to last year's smash hit relaunch of the franchise, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The other day, we received word that principal photography was halfway done, and now- thanks to the Star Wars Direct twitter account- we've got 11 new images from the film's set.

Take a gander:

Nearly all of the photos include the Millennium Falcon, which likely means that the scenes being worked on here will include the iconic ship's new captain, Rey (Daisy Ridley). We know next to nothing about the film's plot, but we do know that she'll be spending some time with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) who, is rumored, to be training her in the ways of The Force. Might this set be the rumored "Jedi Temple" that we've heard so much about? That mysterious tree has me intrigued, too. »

'Star Wars: Episode VIII': Rian Johnson Releases New Set Photos

29 April 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ever since the blockbuster success of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," all eyes have been narrowing in on "Brick" and "Looper" director Rian Johnson to see what he has in store for the widely anticipated followup, "Star Wars: Episode VIII." While we've gotten some glimpses of the set and behind-the-scene training sessions from members of the cast and crew (take a look at a lightsaber-weilding Daisy Ridley here), Johnson has taken to his Tumblr blog to officially celebrate the production's halfway point with two awesome black-and-white set photos. One shows a crew worker cleaning off the window of an X-Wing, while the other teases some of The First Order's tech boards.  Oscar Isaac: Why Shooting 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' 'Feels like we're making an independent film' Unsurprisingly, plot details surrounding "Episode VIII" are being held under lock and key, so it's anyone's guess as to what happens now that Rey has found Luke. »

Star Wars 8 Director Shares New Set Photos, Shoot Halfway Done

28 April 2016 5:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters, it was revealed that Disney plans on releasing a new Star Wars movie every year, indefinitely. Fans will get to see the first spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on December 16 of this year, with Star Wars: Episode VIII following on December 15, 2017. Production started on Star Wars: Episode VIII in February, and today marks a very special day in the filming process, with director Rian Johnson revealing two new photos from the set, along with news that production is halfway complete.

The photos don't reveal too much, with an unspecified crew member using a microfiber sham to clean off the cockpit of what appears to be an X-Wing ship in one image, while cleaning off a control panel in another. We don't get a great look at the actor who is in the cockpit of the X-Wing. This »

Tyler Perry’s 34th Street Films has tapped Black List scribes Jim Kehoe & Brian Kehoe to direct its R-rated action-comedy script “Top of the Food Chain.”

The script, penned by the Kehoes, is described as “City Slickers” meets “The Revenant” and follows a group of suburban men who head to the isolated wilderness to spice up their pedestrian lives, but soon realize how ill-equipped they are when they find themselves being hunted by a massive predatory bear.

Perry, Ozzie Areu and Matt Moore will produce “Top of the Food Chain” for 34th Street Films with David Kang, producer of “The Comments” and the recent viral short, “Power/Rangers.” Chris Cowles of Dmg Entertainment will also produce and Dmg’s Chris Fenton and Dan Mintz will executive produce.

Noah Segan Joins Next "Star Wars" Cast

21 April 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Actor Noah Segan has joined the cast of Rian Johnson's "Star Wars: Episode VIII" for Disney and LucasFilm says Birth.Movies.Death. Production on the film kicked off in February.

Segan, whose role is being kept under wraps for now, joins newcomers to the series including Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran.

Segan is something of a good luck charm for Johnson, having appeared in all three of his previous films - "Brick," "The Brothers Bloom" and "Looper" along with the acclaimed "Breaking Bad" episode "Ozymandias" which Johnson directed. "Star Wars: Episode VIII" is currently slated to hit cinemas on December 15th 2017.

In related news, IGN has some more from filmmaker J.J. Abrams' Tribeca Film Festival interview this past week during which talk of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" came up.

Abrams revealed that Harrison Ford's injury actually proved a blessing - the several »

Rian Johnson adds Noah Segan to his ‘Star Wars VIII’ cast

21 April 2016 7:04 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rian Johnson will next year release his biggest feature film to date, the eighth film in that little known Star Wars franchise. The film will be the director’s fourth feature, and follows the success of Brick, Brother’s Bloom and Looper. It’s a bold choice from Disney, but when you have a catalogue of films as strong as Johnson it isn’t really a risk.

Along his journey to the big leagues Johnson has always seemed to stay grounded and often the cast and crew of his films are made up of his closest friends and relatives. His cousin Nathan Johnson has scored his movies whilst his other cousin Zachary Johnson has created some very cool artwork. Johnson also has two actors whom he keeps going back to, having met on the set of Brick Johnson formed a tight bond with both Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Noah Segan. The »

Star Wars 8 Brings in Director Rian Johnson's Lucky Charm

20 April 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When production started on Star Wars: Episode VIII back in February, Disney and LucasFilm released an updated cast list, which included the primary cast from Star Wars: The Force Awakens along with a few franchise newcomers like Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran. Naturally, we knew that more cast members would be confirmed at some point during the production, but, two months into shooting, we haven't seen any official announcements. Today we have word that director Rian Johnson has in fact cast another actor, Noah Segan, although his actual role remains a mystery.

The news comes from Birth.Movies.Death, where Noah Segan actually contributes as a writer at times, aside from his acting work. Those who are familiar with Rian Johnson's work will certainly recognize Noah Segan, since he has starred in all three of his movies, Brick, The Brothers Bloom and Looper. He even »
