First Official Look At Kara’s New Costume In Supergirl Season 5 Revealed

Thanks to an Instagram post from Melissa Benoist last week, we discovered that the Girl of Steel would be sporting a radical new appearance in Supergirl season 5. Not only has she got a new hairstyle, but Kara Danvers has swapped her classic red skirt for an all over blue outfit. Set photos gave us a further glimpse of the costume and now, The CW has provided us with the best look yet at the new, improved Supergirl in this awesome promo image seen below.

Released today at the show’s Comic-Con panel, it depicts the heroine striding through National City with pandemonium apparently going on around her. The main focus of the image, though, is of course her new togs. Some have complained about the lack of the red skirt outsetting the balance between the two colours, but in this photo the bold blue really works. We’re definitely getting

‘Avengers: Endgame’ to Top ‘Avatar’ on Sunday as Highest Grossing Film of All Time

  • The Wrap
Like Thanos, this was inevitable. In its 13th week of its release, Disney’s “Avengers: Endgame” is set to overtake “Avatar” as the highest grossing film in box office history, ending the James Cameron film’s nine-year reign atop the global charts.

Marvel announced the record-breaking achievement would take place on Sunday at its panel at San Diego Comic-Con.

As of Friday, “Avengers: Endgame’s” global gross stood at $2,789.2 million. This is just $500,000 behind the lifetime global gross of “Avatar” of $2,789.7 million set back in 2010, and “Endgame” will close this gap by tomorrow.

Even when adjusted for inflation, “Endgame” sits among the top 10 highest grossing films of all time, standing among some of cinema’s greatest event films like “Star Wars,” “Doctor Zhivago,” and “The Ten Commandments.”

The road to this new record was a far different one than what “Avatar” took. Back in 2009, “Avatar” was set for a December

Kevin Smith Says The Final Shot Of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Will Melt Your Mind

Though Lucasfilm doesn’t have a panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, filmmaker Kevin Smith was on the scene to relay some promising intel about the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Last year, the Clerks helmsman and podcaster paid a visit to the set of the Sequel Trilogy finale, where he claims to have witnessed some things that brought tears to his eyes. But while Smith’s mind is no doubt full of valuable Star Wars spoilers, there was one key moment during the production that he chose to avoid.

Speaking to IGN this weekend, Smith was asked if he’d seen the film’s final shot, to which he responded:

“I have not seen it, but I was on set. I went to London at one point and visited the set, [director] J.J. [Abrams] invited me, because I had the heart attack. When I had the heart attack,

New Star Wars Comic Will Explore How Ben Solo Became Kylo Ren

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: 2019 has all the makings of a banner year for Disney and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars franchise.

From Galaxy’s Edge to The Mandalorian to a little-known sequel called The Rise of Skywalker, it feels as though the Powers That Be are truly pulling out all the stops as they prepare for a historic year in Star Wars history. Up first was the launch of the Galaxy’s Edge theme park back in May – word is the Millennium Falcon ride has already flown 1 million passengers through hyperspeed – before The Mandalorian makes its big premiere on Disney Plus in November.

But closer to Christmas we have the release of Episode IX, The Rise of Skywalker, and it seems Disney has plans for several tie-in comics to stoke excitement for December 20th. Among them is the official four-part Allegiance series, which serves

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Promo Art Offers Best Look Yet At Knights Of Ren

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has its work cut out in wrapping up all the loose threads of the Sequel Trilogy so far and one of the biggest is just who exactly are the Knights of Ren? Kylo’s stooges have been referenced and glimpsed in flashback before now, but both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi failed to clarify much about this mysterious dark order. From what we know though, it sounds like the Knights are a big part of Episode IX and this new promo art for the movie gives us our clearest look at them yet.

The cover to the upcoming book, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – The Visual Dictionary, has been released, revealing that it side-steps highlighting any of the main cast and instead has one of the Knights as its cover star. As you can see in the gallery below, the Knights

One of the great mysteries in the modern era of Star Wars is finally going to be unraveled in a brand new comic book from Marvel, which is set to be released ahead of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. As announced at San Diego Comic-Con during the Lucasfilm Publishing panel, author Charles Soule is penning a new four-issue miniseries titled The Rise of Kylo Ren that will not only give us some back story on Ben Solo and how he became the force of evil we've seen in the movies, but we're also finally going to get some backstory on the Knights of Ren.

The title of the forthcoming miniseries is Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker - Allegiance.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker - Allegiance is written by Ethan Sacks and Luke Ross. No story details have been provided during Comic-Con, but they are expected to be announced soon, along with an official release date.

Margot Robbie Has Never Seen a Star Wars Movie and It Drives People Nuts
Margot Robbie, one of the most sought-after and beloved actresses working in the business right now, has never seen a Star Wars movie. Not just one of the new Disney era Star Wars movies, mind you. But not any movie in the history of the franchise. And that's something she doesn't intend on changing, at least not in the foreseeable future.

The 29-year-old actress has been making the rounds with her co-stars Brad Pitt and Leonard DiCaprio to promote Once Upon a Time in Hollywood as of late. In the movie, Margot Robbieplays actress Sharon Tate. During a recent interview, she revealed that there are quite a few classic movies she hasn't seen, and Star Wars is right at the top of the list. Here's what she had to say about it.

J.J. Abrams Is Confident Fans Will Love The Sith Troopers In Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

While Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker won’t be in attendance at Sdcc 2019 this weekend – Disney tends to reserve its heavy-hitters for the annual D23 event in August – the hotly-anticipated sequel will still enjoy a presence at the comic book extravaganza, as the good folks at StarWars.com recently unearthed details of the Sith Trooper.

Drenched in a blood-red armor not dissimilar to the one worn by Snoke’s Praetorian Guards, these troopers look like the real deal, and while it’s unclear how much screentime they’ll enjoy during The Rise of Skywalker, writer-director J.J. Abrams is confident that fans will love their design and overall aesthetic once it’s projected onto the big screen.

Expect further details to be shown once Lucasfilm drops some behind-the-scenes footage later this weekend, but for now, here’s a tantalizing tease from Abrams himself:

J.J. Abrams can’t wait for fans to see the Sith Troopers in action in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

J.J. Abrams, the director of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, says that he can’t wait for fans to see the Sith Troopers in action.

Whenever a new Star Wars film comes out, there are always myriad details to look forward to and this often includes new enemy types and variations. In The Rise of Skywalker, we are being introduced to the Sith Troopers – a red and ominous variant of the First Order Storm Troopers.

What will these guys get up to in the film? We don’t know but director J.J. Abrams told StarWars.com that he can’t wait for fans to see them at Sdcc where they will be on display: “The materials, the color, the lines, there was something about the aesthetic of it that just felt absolutely right. I cannot wait for people to see the work that everyone’s done.”

Daisy Ridley reveals her emotional and “dramatic” last day making Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Daisy Ridley, one of the stars of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, has shared details about her emotional and “dramatic” last day of filming.

The sequel trilogy of films has been quite the journey so far, truly changing the lives of its relatively unknown cast prior to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. One can imagine that finishing up making the trilogy with The Rise of Skywalker was a big moment as a result.

This is just how Daisy Ridley describes her final day on the film, telling People’s Couch Surfing: “I just can’t remember it, I remember [director] J.J. [Abrams] making a speech and I sort of remember a couple things he said, like I’m always on time, which I appreciate him saying and then he went to pass me the mic and I was the last person to wrap.

Rise of Skywalker Sith Trooper Unveiled at Comic-Con
The Sith Trooper is officially in the building. When Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters this Christmas, fans will be treated to an all-new iteration of the classic Stormtrooper. This never-before-seen warrior is called a Sith Trooper, and there is already plenty of merchandise heading our way based on its likeness. While we saw some of those toys in a previous post, the official armor straight from the set was unveiled this evening at Comic-Con.

The Sith Trooper's role in The Rise of Skywalker hasn't been explained at this time, but we can assume that they have some connection to Emperor Palpatine, who will be returning in some way, shape or form. This particular armor is bright, bloody red. And it stands out from a mile away, as now displayed on the San Diego Comic-Con convention area floor.

Sith Trooper Revealed From ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” revealed a new storm trooper uniform Wednesday at San Diego Comic Con as part of a special exhibit celebrating the evolution of the storm trooper design.

Dubbed the Sith trooper, the new uniform sports all-red armor plates with a matching red and black blaster. Also decorating the armor is a slightly more textured pattern, although the overall design is reminiscent of past clone troopers from films such as “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith.”

Star Wars has also announced a toy version of the new character design, which hints at a host of new red and black weapons for the troopers.

The Lion King Set To Make A Royal $150 Million This Weekend

Disney’s live-action remakes might not always earn the best reviews, but they certainly rake in the cash. Aladdin wished up nearly $1 billion worldwide back in May, for example. Given this trend and the enormous affection folks have for the original movie, then, The Lion King remake was always fully expected to make a killing at the box office. And sure enough, predictions are pointing to the film having one impressive opening weekend.

According to Variety, The Lion King is all set to open to a $150 million debut once it arrives in cinemas this Friday (July 19th). In fact, some analysts are suggesting it could earn as much as $180 million over the same period. These figures practically guarantee that Jon Favreau’s CGI reboot will find itself among the biggest openings of 2019. There’s no beating Avengers: Endgame‘s $357 million, but Captain Marvel‘s $153 million could easily be toppled by Simba.
