Rumoured plot for Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars spin-off movie

24 November 2014 9:09 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the news of the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuting this coming Friday in select IMAX cinemas in the Us, some plot rumours have surfaced about the spin-off movie, set for release in 2016 and to be directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla).

According to /Film and their “several sources”, the movie will take place before Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and will see a group of bounty hunters hired to take on the ultimate job – steal the plans for the Death Star. Think Suicide Squad meets Ocean’s Eleven.

One of the other rumours to go along with this story is that the protagonist will be one of the new additions to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, suggesting that it would be a younger version of Max Von Sydow’s character. They also claim the movie will possibly feature The Millenium Falcon, »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer reportedly arriving on Friday

22 November 2014 11:12 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past we’ve heard several rumours about the impending trailer for Disney and Lucasfilm’s hugely-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens; there’s been the obligatory alleged trailer description, along with reports that it will make its debut in cinemas with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies on December 17th. However, it seems we may not have to wait that long…

According to a rumour on Reddit, Disney is looking to launch the first trailer this Friday with a special even that will see it shown before every movie in 100 U.S. theaters this weekend, starting on Friday. Apparently said theaters have been told that Big Hero 6 has to be shown at the earliest showtime on each of those days, with the studio no doubt looking to boost the takings of its animated Marvel adaptation by capitalising on the Star Wars fever.

Rumoured trailer description for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

17 November 2014 10:29 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well I think this wins award for the most tenuous headline for today, but Badass Digest claim they have been given a scoop on the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and have posted a description of it, which you can read below.

Now, of course, this is just a rumour and may or may not be real. Bear that in mind.

If my sources are correct (and this is a big If. These sources have been mighty reliable in the past, and if they’re wrong I believe they’re wrong honestly, ie they’re not bullshitting me), it’ll be short. And when I say short, I mean one minute long. It’s going to have The Force Theme played on woodwinds, softly, over flashing images of the main leads, each fading to black. There’s no dialogue, just reveals of the characters. And then »

9 Actors Who Could Be Big Movie Stars Next Year

28 October 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This year's edition of the 100 Most Valuable Stars in Hollywood had some notable debuts — including Shailene Woodley at No. 24, Kevin Hart at No. 40, Chris Pratt at No. 68, and Lupita Nyong'o at No. 82 — but who's the likeliest to leap on the list in 2015? We talked to studio executives and sifted through next year's release calendar to find nine major talents (some already better-known than others) whose cinematic choices could soon make them household names, and let's just say the British are definitely coming. Get in on the ground floor!John BoyegaThe 22-year-old Brit first impressed in 2011's scrappy sci-fi vehicle Attack the Block, but his next foray into that genre will be one of the biggest movies of all time: After meeting with just about every young actor in town, J.J. Abrams cast Boyega as the male lead in Star Wars: Episode VII. (And »

Star Wars: Episode VII scene description and set photos featuring Stormtroopers

22 October 2014 4:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to fan site Making Star Wars, we’ve got a pair of new set photos from Star Wars: Episode VII, which – if you squint and look very, very closely – just about shows the white blur of an Imperial Stormtrooper. Take a look at the images, followed by a scene description below…

Some images are from the lot where they seem to be dumping a lot of trees, vines and rocks which I believe must be props, the other 4 are from the area around the blue screens, the castle/megaliths/ruins…and a Stormtrooper, well, just about.

Unfortunately they’re not quite as vivid as we’d have liked, but with a bit of zooming you should definitely be able to make out the Stormtrooper. There were 4 I think in this area, running through the explosions, I think I remember another 4 or so coming from the opposite direction, but that was not all… »

Adam McKay on rewriting Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man script

18 October 2014 3:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After the shock departure of Edgar Wright following years of development on Ant-Man, Marvel Studios brought in Peyton Reed (The Break-Up) as his replacement in the director’s chair, while Adam McKay (Anchorman) also signed on to rework the script by Wright and his writing partner Joe Cornish (Attack the Block). Filming on the Phase Three movie is now of course well underway, and Collider has caught up with McKay, who has spoken about his work on the film, as well as how much of Wright’s original script has made it through to the final product. Here’s what he had to say:

“[Paul Rudd] called me when Edgar Wright stepped away from the project and told me what was going on. I went and met with Marvel, and I was a little dubious just because I’m friends with Edgar and I didn’t know what the story was, and »

'Fury' Review: 10 Things You Should Know About the Muddy Brad Pitt Action Movie

14 October 2014 3:32 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

War is hell. This much we know is true.

It's also the fodder for prestige action movies like "Fury," about a small team of men who pilot and maneuver the titular tank in the waning days of World War II, where Hitler's Germany acted like a scared and wounded dog -- all teeth and matted fur and ferocious intent. Brad Pitt leads the platoon, which is stocked handily with fine actors like Jon Bernthal, Logan Lerman, Shia LeBeouf (who lost a tooth and cut his face for the role) and Michael Pena.

Instead of a world-saving mission, these good ole boys are more interested in just surviving until the war officially concludes (a task that seems doable until, well, things go to hell). But does this rise out of the flames of war, triumphant? Or burn before it reaches the finish line? Read on to find out!

William Hurt Joins Jesse Owens Biopic Race

1 October 2014 3:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Focus Features have added veteran actor William Hurt to the cast of their Jesse Owens biopic, Race. The actor will take on the role of Jeremiah Mahoney, the president of the Amateur Athletic Union, who spearheaded efforts to boycott the 1936 Olympics.

The movie, penned by Frankie And Alice writers Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel, is based on the real story of American athlete, Jesse Owens. Now a legend, the movie will tell his backstory before he became a four-time Olympic gold medalist and track-event pioneer. On board to direct is noted TV director Stephen Hopkins (Californication, House Of Lies). The film, which has the distinct aroma of award-bait, has already accrued a solid cast, despite undergoing a shuffle in its line-up earlier this year.

Along with Hurt to flesh out the call sheet for the sports biopic are Jeremy Irons (Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Margin Call), Carice Van Houten »

First look at Star Wars: Episode VII footage?

1 October 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

From the moment that Disney announced its purchase of Lucasfilm, we’ve been inundated with rumours about the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. First it was potential directors and cast members, then came the alleged plot details and concept art, and now a video has surfaced claiming to include the first footage from the hotly-anticipated sequel.

The footage in question originated on YouTube, but was quickly yanked and the posting account closed, however some screencaps have survived courtesy of Techno Buffalo, which reportedly shows shots of ‘Luke’s Refuge’. We’ve no idea if this is legitimate or not, but here are the screenshots…

David Fincher on meeting with Disney and Lucasfilm about Star Wars: Episode VII

30 September 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before J.J. Abrams secured the job of kicking off Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy, numerous filmmakers were linked with the director’s chair on Star Wars: Episode VII, including  David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club), who has spoken about meeting with Disney and Lucasfilm during a promotional interview for his new film Gone Girl.

“I talked to [Kathleen Kennedy] about it, but I think that it’s a different thing from… I don’t know what Disney-Lucasfilm will be like,” Fincher tells Total Film. “It’s tricky. My favourite is The Empire Strikes Back. If I said, ‘I want to do something more like that,’ then I’m sure the people paying for it would be like, ‘No! You can’t do that! We want it like the other one with all the creatures!’ “I always thought of Star Wars as the story of two slaves [C-3Po and R2-D2] who go from owner to owner, »

25 September 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may be a movie that is shrouded in secrecy, but that hasn’t stopped a plethora of leaks about Star Wars: Episode VII flooding the Internet, including various shots of the Millennium Falcon and X-Wings as well as images of Adam Driver as a rebel pilot. Today’s “leaked image” comes from Indie Revolver (who also posted alleged Stormtrooper and Han Solo concept art) who claim this is an exclusive look at the chrome helmet design for the Stormtroopers. Take a look at the image here…

Update: And here’s a second image…

Along with some alleged concept art featuring a lightsabre battle next to the Millennium Falcon…
