Twelve O'Clock High (1949)
Overall, these plot details spell certain doom for one new beloved member of the Star Wars family while hinting at love for another, which may come as disappointing news for GLAAD and all those hoping to see two space bros get it on inside an Exogorth while hiding from the dreaded First Order.

Attendees at Star Wars Celebration Europe were lucky enough to be among the first to clap eyes on the second trailer for this year's Star Wars: Rogue One. The rest of us will have to wait an unspecified amount of time before that promo appears on YouTube or in cinemas. Still, the celebration's live feed still provided a few new morsels of information, including the latest Rogue One poster and a sizzle reel containing behind-the-scenes footage and glimpses of a few new characters.
Then there's Star Wars: Episode VIII, the 2017 sequel to The Force Awakens. Writer-director Rian Johnson took ther stage at the Future Film Maker panel to talk about his forthcoming movie, and while he didn't drop anything revelatory - we still don't know what its official title is,

Episode VIII is due out in time for the Star Wars 40th anniversary. Here's what we know so far, plus a bit of speculation about its events.
Nb: The following contains potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and speculation about Episode VIII.
"In the middle act of a movie or a book or anything else, not much happens. It sort of evolves the story, makes the plot more complicated." - George Lucas on The Empire Strikes Back
Disney may have had a lot riding on Star Wars: The Force Awakens - essentially, the future of an entire franchise - but next year's Episode VIII brings potentially nail-biting risks of its own. It will, after all, have to follow on from the success of The Force Awakens - currently the third biggest film of all time in terms of ticket sales - and will also draw
In an interview taped for the Filmspotting podcast, Johnson chatted about his childhood love of the "Star Wars" movies, revealed the cinematic influences he plans on including in the flick, and discussed his unlikely selection as the newest member of the "Star Wars" filmmakers club.
"The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy," Johnson said of agreeing to the offer to direct "Episode VIII." "I wanted to to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see."
The "Looper" director also joked that with his less-well-known pedigree, it must have been "a clerical error" that saw him land the gig, adding, "There's
Disney/Lucasfilm has thus far this year announced three new directors for Star Wars movies. Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards are each going to be doing standalone spin-off films. But it's Looper helmer Rian Johnson who will be picking up from Jj Abrams and putting Star Wars: Episode VIII - and possibly Star Wars: Episode IX - together.
Chatting to the Filmspotting Podcast, Johnson admitted his absolute delight at landing the Star Wars job. "The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy. I wanted to to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see".
Admitting that he's early in the process of making his new film, Johnson is currently hard at work at Lucasfilm, and
This is a personal list, and as such, won't please everyone. I accept that, but I wanted to look at the films that have best represented flying for me over the years.
I've also excluded helicopters in exchange for a festival of fixed wings. But as a person who loves aircraft and flying of all kinds, these are the ones that made me feel the need. The need for speed...
The Dam Busters (1955)
Gosh, what a place to start. For the most part, the film's an historically accurate retelling of the ultimate daring-do of WWII. Richard Todd plays the unflappable Guy Gibson, who lead the amazing 617 Squadron on their secret mission against the dams of the Ruhr valley.
Using the Barnes Wallis (played by Michael Redgrave) utterly inspired bouncing bomb,
There are movie marathons. Syfy is busting out its greatest hits in the giant monster oeuvre on Friday, followed by "Star Trek" movies all weekend. TCM and AMC are showing nothing but military movies, including classics like "All Quiet on the Western Front," "From Here to Eternity" and "Patton."
If marathons are your thing, you've got everything from "Firefly" and "Doctor Who" to "House Hunters" and "How It's Made." And if you're a sports fan, while the NBA playoffs are on hiatus, you can still watch a ton of baseball, the 2011 French Open or the annual Memorial Day race the Indianapolis 500.
Smiles of a Summer Night (Criterion Collection) I was going to try and finish watching this one before posting this week's titles, but it just ended up getting too late so I will return to it tomorrow and post a full review. I, however, am still going to lead with it because it is still an Ingmar Bergman film and I am a decided fan of Bergman, particularly Persona, The Seventh Seal, The Virgin Spring and one film I really want Criterion to issue on Blu-ray, if only for Sven Nykvist's cinematography, Fanny and Alexander.
