Han Solo and Darth Vader returning for more Star Wars movies

7 July 2015 2:53 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Though everyone thought Disney would keep all things Star Wars-related for their own convention, D23, San Diego Comic-Con hasn’t even started yet, and news regarding Star Wars’ future is already dropping.

The Lego Movie directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord are developing a stand-alone Han Solo movie. The film  –  hopefully starring Harrison Ford – would be a part of the “Star Wars Anthology” of films that also includes Star Wars: Rogue One, starring Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), and an origin story of bounty hunter Boba Fett, which was previously to be directed by Josh Trank (Fantastic Four).

Speaking of Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, news broke earlier today that Darth Vader will make an appearance alongside Jones, Sam Clafin (The Hunger Games), Diego Luna (The Book of Life), Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises), and Forest Whitaker

Director Gareth Edward’s Rogue One will focus on »

11 Biggest Movies Coming to Comic Con 2015

4 July 2015 12:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Next week, some of the biggest movies and TV shows Hollywood has to offer will head a few hours south to San Diego for Comic-Con 2015, which runs from Thursday, July 9 to Sunday, July 12. Last week, before the official Comic-Con schedule was released, we tried to break down some of the surprises that the studios and networks may have in store for fans, since many of the big events at every Con aren't found on the official schedule. This year will surely be no exception, and several of the studios are even feeding into this, with the lineups for Open Road Films and 20th Century Fox still shrouded in mystery. We can speculate on what movies these studios will showcase until the cows come home, but we won't know for sure what exactly will be on display until everyone has been seated in Hall H for each presentation. Last year, the »

‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ Bows at No. 1 on Home-Video Sales Chart

17 June 2015 6:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The surprise theatrical hit “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” a spy film that opened back in February but kept a steady beat at the box office and has now grossed more than $128 million, easily topped the national home video sales charts for the week ending June 14.

The 20th Century Fox release bumped Paramount’s “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water” from the top spot on both the Nielsen VideoScan overall disc chart, which tracks combined Blu-ray Disc and DVD sales, and Nielsen’s Blu-ray Disc-only chart.

“SpongeBob” settled in at No. 2 but according to Nielsen data only sold about one-third as many discs as “Kingsman,” which is loosely based on the popular comic book “The Secret Service” and was directed by Matthew Vaughn.

“Kingsman” generated 51% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray, according to Nielsen, compared to 36% for “SpongeBob,” down from 44% in the animated comedy’s first week in stores. »

Spectre (2015) Movie Featurette: Daniel Craig & The Day of the Dead

16 June 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Spectre The Day of the Dead Vlog. Sam Mendes‘ latest Spectre (2015) movie featurette entitled “Day of the Dead Festival” has been released. In the video, Sam Mendes, the director, talks about the location and occasion for the set-piece, and Jany Temime, costume designer, talks about the culture of the Mexican festivity. Anna Terrazas, the costume supervisor in Mexico, talks about the problems they encounter, and Kenny Crouch, also costume supervisor, talks about the massive amount of extras that needed to be prepared. Naomie Donne, make-up designer, praises the workflow and hands-off approach to the production design.

I’ve decided to keep my expectations tailored, according to the latest Sam Mendes/Daniel Craig James Bond outing. While half of us really adored that film and thought it was a perfect throwback, whilst maintaining a pristine modernity and fusing those two together, and half of us thought it was an imbalanced mix-up »

Film Review: ‘The Book of Life’

14 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The visuals outshine the story in “The Book of Life,” a lively animated tale that mixes age-old myths with today’s toon tropes. But what lovely visuals they are. The feature debut of smallscreen animator Jorge R. Gutierrez (co-creator of Nickelodeon’s “El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera”) proves to be perfectly charming in relaying the tale of a lopsided love triangle set against the backdrop of Mexico’s Day of the Dead holiday. And yet it hardly matters what the characters are saying (or occasionally singing) when their warmly handcrafted appearance keeps stealing the spotlight. Opening domestically three weeks after Focus/Laika’s “The Boxtrolls” and three weeks ahead of Disney’s “Big Hero 6,” “Book” should have time to carve out its own space in the family entertainment marketplace and could become a significant sleeper worldwide, especially if Latin audiences respond to the pic’s universal, yet culturally specific, »

Variety has revealed that Gareth Edwards has cast his male lead for the ‘about to start shooting’ Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, the stand-alone Star Wars movie from Lucasfilm.

13 May 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

'Pinocchio' Joins Disney Roster of Live Action Retooling of Animated Titles (Video)

8 April 2015 4:14 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The latest entry in Disney's push to own the fairy tale universe--as studio label Marvel does its comic book heroes-- is a live-action version of the 1883 Carlo Collodi children's classic "The Adventures of Pinocchio," about a wooden puppet who wants to be a real boy. The relationship between lonely good-hearted wood carver Geppetto and his mendacious creation is at the center of the story. Peter Hedges ("Pieces of April") has a take on the story, reports Deadline, which has been retold on film many times (Roberto Begnini is pictured), including Disney's 1940 version and the 1967 animated musical. As usual there's another version in the works; Guillermo del Toro is developing  a stop-motion 3D movie with the producer of "The Book Of Life" who plans to co-direct from a script co-written with Matthew Robbins.  "Pinocchio" joins the lengthening Disney live action remake roster.  1998 animated musical “Mulan," produced »

Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves And Jim Carrey Join Texan Cannibal Love Story The Bad Batch

20 March 2015 5:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Clear your schedules, because the most interesting film to head our way in 2016 just got more interesting. Sure, we’re all on the edge of our seats, wanting to see the next huge offerings from the DC and Marvel stables – but what if there was something happening that was so original, so exciting and so promising, that it actually presented itself as a viable alternative to all that comic book fare? Well, here it is: The Bad Batch.

Last year, Ana Lily Amirpour was the talk of the festival circuit, with her feature film debut A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. The award-winning Iranian vampire film set tongues wagging at Sundance and, very quickly, the British-born Iranian-American writer-director was defying the Hollywood odds and lining up her next high profile project – a feat that is sadly still a rarity for directors that are also female.

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 DVD Set Slays Home Video Sales Charts

25 February 2015 6:58 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s eagerly awaited fourth-season set of hot TV series “Game of Thrones” debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts the week ending Feb. 22, a banner week for new releases in which the top five sellers are all newcomers.

Bowing at No. 2 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart was Universal Pictures’ “Dumb and Dumber To,” the belated sequel to the 1994 slapstick classic that reunites original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and earned a respectable $86.2 million in U.S. theaters.

Sony Pictures’ controversial “The Interview” debuted at No. 3 on both charts, a ranking observers surmise might have been higher had the film not been available earlier via streaming (it became available on Netflix on Jan. 24) and online purchase. The comedy, about two journalists told to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after getting an interview with him, »
