Greg Grunberg says Star Wars: The Force Awakens is all about “the story and family”

26 June 2015 3:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there is one thing Star Wars: The Force Awakens has done well (despite its heavily publicised production) is keeping its story a secret. We’ve had two trailers already, but we don’t actually know all that much about the plot of J.J. Abrams’ new adventure in a galaxy far, far away.

One of its stars Greg Grunberg however has given some details about the theme of the movie in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“I can only say that practical effects are as important—if not more important—than the special effects,” the actor said. “And it’s all about the story and family. I mean that’s what J.J. is all about. And these new characters, these actors are unbelievable. They’re so well cast. We got our script pages, only the scenes that we were in. Not even what was being shot that day! »

Legacy's Tom Davis: 'Everything is down to the scripts in British films'

23 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Actor and comedian Tom Davis has said that British films should not try to compete with Hollywood when it comes to spectacle.

Davis stars opposite Attack The Block's Franz Drameh in new movie Legacy and told Digital Spy that Brit movies need to rely on strong scripts.

"There is some really great fresh talent - I'm doing Ben Wheatley's film Free Fire at the moment," he said.

"But I think it's really hard to compete with films that have millions and millions put towards them - that straight away is a bit of a stumbling block.

"I think when it comes to British films, everything is down to the scripts - as long as the core's strong… that's the thing. Maybe for the times, the scripts maybe need to be that little big stronger.

"The story's got to work - and if it works - people will find it. »

First look at Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

19 June 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this week, we brought you our first look at Princess Leia in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (before Disney made us take them down), and now we have our possible first look at her brother Luke Skywalker.

The folks over at TheForce.net have posted the below image which shows Mark Hamill as Luke with his grey beard and metallic hand. They don’t say where they got the image from, so this is far from official.

Possible Spoilers – Pictures of more returning characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens; Greg Grunberg’s role revealed?

19 June 2015 6:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – possible spoilers below…

Since the announcement of the movie, we’ve known that the likes of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia would be back for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but there have been plenty of rumours about other possible returning roles (but not Lando it would seem). Well, starwars7news.com believes it can confirm two returning characters, along with information on a new one.

If you’re a fan of Return of the Jedi, you are in luck. According to the website, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will see the return of Nein Nunb and Admiral Ackbar. Check out the photos below that the site claims are 100% legit:

Obviously we don’t know if this is true or just a wild Bantha chase, but the website is very sure these are genuine. And to back that up, they have the first image of Greg Grunberg in the movie, »
