2021 Grammy Nominees Include ‘Joker’, ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’, ‘Eurovision Song Contest’, and More
The 63rd annual Grammy Award nominations were unveiled this morning, and since the music industry’s biggest award show is on a different timetable than awards shows like the Oscars or the Emmys, it can often feel like the Grammys are extremely far behind when it comes to pop culture. Case in point: composer Hildur Guðnadóttir‘s Oscar-winning […]

Billie Eilish Earns Grammy Nomination for ‘No Time to Die’ Despite Bond Film’s Delay Into Next Year

Billie Eilish Earns Grammy Nomination for ‘No Time to Die’ Despite Bond Film’s Delay Into Next Year
Billie Eilish’s nomination for the new James Bond theme, “No Time to Die,” breaks with long-held Grammy precedent: it appears to be the first nominated in the “best song written for visual media” category for a movie that won’t open for months.

The song was released during the 2019-2020 eligibility period, on Feb. 13, in anticipation of an April release of the movie. But the Covid-19 pandemic forced a delay to November, then another to April 2021, so the Eilish song is out there but no one has seen the movie for which it was written.

Eilish is co-credited with her brother Finneas O’Connell for the title song, which peaked at No. 16 on the Billboard charts in America and debuted at No. 1 in Great Britain. They released a video (directed by veteran Bond title designer Daniel Kleinman) on Oct. 1, just before the film’s release got bumped again.

Star Wars Finally Reveals What Makes A Jedi Master, Luke Doesn’t Qualify

Star Wars Finally Reveals What Makes A Jedi Master, Luke Doesn’t Qualify
A new canon Star Wars book has finally revealed what it means to be a Jedi Master and surprisingly, Anakin Skywalker and his son Luke don’t make the cut.

In a sense, the story of that galaxy far, far away is the eternal clash of light against darkness, embodied by the in-universe forces of the Jedi and the Sith. The two respective parties operate like a religious sect, each with their own version of a hierarchy. Though up to now, the lore hasn’t exactly established what these seemingly random ranks indicate, especially in the days of the Empire and the Sequel Trilogy. After all, in that period, the Order was all but destroyed, so the last remaining Jedi Masters played fast and loose with the Jedi Code.

Now, however, thanks to a new reference book, titled The Star Wars Book, we’ve learned a lot about these unexplored

Kathleen Kennedy Supports John Boyega After His Criticism Of Star Wars

Kathleen Kennedy Supports John Boyega After His Criticism Of Star Wars
With the notable exception of The Mandalorian, every single Star Wars project during the Disney era has suffered from some kind of creative or behind the scenes turmoil, and there’s even been backlash levelled at the hit streaming exclusive over the last couple of weeks after Baby Yoda was accused of genocide and Gina Carano continues to exist.

Whether it be Obi-Wan Kenobi getting scrapped and reworked from the ground up when the crew was ready to go, director Gareth Edwards being locked out of both reshoots and post-production on Rogue One, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller departing Solo with just three weeks of shooting remaining or the countless filmmakers that have boarded the franchise only to leave very shortly after, fans generally tend to point the finger of blame at Kathleen Kennedy.

John Boyega Reveals He Had A Transparent Call About Star Wars With Kathleen Kennedy

John Boyega Reveals He Had A Transparent Call About Star Wars With Kathleen Kennedy
Over the years, it’s become increasingly clear that not even the folks within Lucasfilm actually have a proper vision of what Star Wars should be. Of course, the fact that Disney didn’t have any concrete plans for their Sequel Trilogy and just made the story up as they went along doesn’t help matters, either.

This has actually been an important critique of the last two movies in the Skywalker Saga. And amid all this continuous backlash, one name keeps popping up again and again. I mean, it’s not news that a lot of Star Wars lovers think Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy is at fault for involving alleged Sjw propaganda in the Sequel Trilogy. There were even reports that George Lucas blames her for the division among the fans.

Still, the producer has done a lot to push for more diversity in that galaxy far, far away.

During a promotional interview with IGN to discuss her upcoming film Chaos Walking, Daisy Ridley was once again asked about the possibility of another Star Wars outing, and while she didn’t definitively rule out a return to the galaxy far, far away, the actress did state that she was “totally, totally satisfied” with the conclusion […]

Star Wars: Daisy Ridley says The Rise of Skywalker gave Rey a perfect ending
We're quickly approaching the first anniversary of the release of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, which brought the nine-film Skywalker Saga to an end, but as we know, Star Wars will never really end. There are plenty of new Star Wars movies in development from folks such as Rian Johnson, Kevin Feige, Taika Waititi, J.D. Dillard, and more; not to mention the TV shows…

Daisy Ridley Says Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Gave Rey The Perfect Ending

Daisy Ridley Says Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Gave Rey The Perfect Ending
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker concluded the saga that George Lucas started all the way back in 1977 just like the marketing campaign had promised. Though for a lot of fans, the ending left much to be desired in terms of narrative and character resolutions.

Many Last Jedi loyalists didn’t even care to admit that J.J. Abrams’ flick was anything other than fan service to mend Disney’s reputation after Rian Johnson’s divisive middle act. Others, meanwhile, criticized Episode IX for its convoluted and fast-paced script. But one element in particular that managed to rile up a lot of people was Rey’s ultimate fate. As the movie revealed in its closing moments, she adopted the family name of Skywalker, despite sharing no ties, blood or otherwise, with any of them.

Apparently, though, Daisy Ridley thinks her character received the perfect ending, saying the following about it

Why Are ‘The Mandalorian’ Episodes So Short?

Why Are ‘The Mandalorian’ Episodes So Short?
The Mandalorian,” the first ever live-action “Star Wars” TV show, has made a lot of “Star Wars” fans very happy over the course of the first two seasons, and on top of that everybody is rightfully obsessed with Baby Yoda. But not every aspect of this series has delighted viewers. There’s been some frustration with folks about the show’s episode lengths. They’re pretty short!

The series premiere episode last year dropped at a svelte 39 minutes — or 36 if you subtract the credits. Then the second episode landed a week later and it was even shorter — listed at 32 minutes, with a running time of about 27-and-a-half minutes when you subtract the credits and the recap of the previous episode at the beginning.

Season 2 began with an episode that made some folks think that the new episodes would be longer, coming in at 55 minutes total, or 47 minutes without the extra

Watch: Tom Holland And Daisy Ridley Star In First Chaos Walking Trailer

Watch: Tom Holland And Daisy Ridley Star In First Chaos Walking Trailer
You’d think that a science fiction action movie starring Spider-Man‘s Tom Holland and Star Wars‘ Daisy Ridley, from Edge of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman would be an easy sell. Well, Chaos Walking indicates that’s not necessarily the case.

The pic is an adaptation of Patrick Ness’ 2008 YA novel The Knife of Never Letting Go, set on a planet only populated by men who believe a virus has killed all women (it’s also given everyone psychic powers). A wrench is thrown into the works, however, when Holland’s character encounters Ridley’s – the first female he’s ever seen – and the pair set out to discover the shocking true history of their world.

Sounds fun, right? Lionsgate agreed, announcing the casting in 2016 and beginning principal photography in 2017. It wrapped in November of that year, though executives got cold feet when test audiences hated

James Bond: John Boyega would play 007 if Steve McQueen directs
With Daniel Craig set to bid farewell to James Bond with the upcoming No Time To Die, it will soon be time for a new actor to play the secret agent. There is certainly no shortage of candidates for the gig, which is no surprise as most actors would give their left arm for the chance to play the part. One such actor is down to play James Bond, John Boyega (Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker),…

Black Panther 2 Will Reportedly Feature A Shot Of Chadwick Boseman With No Mask

Black Panther 2 Will Reportedly Feature A Shot Of Chadwick Boseman With No Mask
The idea of using an actor or actress that’s no longer with us in a movie is a very sticky ethical question, and usually depends upon the nature of the project. For example, Carrie Fisher was integral to the plot of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and there was enough footage left over from her previous two efforts to make it work, but bringing Peter Cushing’s Moff Tarkin back to life in Rogue One 22 years after he died was definitely unnecessary and more than a little unsettling.

Of course, this is hardly a new phenomenon after CGI and camera tricks were used to complete Oliver Reed’s performance in Gladiator and Laurence Olivier bizarrely played the villain in 2004’s Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow despite passing away in 1989, but advances in visual effects technology mean that the lines could soon become impossibly blurred.

First ‘Chaos Walking’ Poster Teases Tom Holland & Daisy Ridley’s Adventures in Dystopia
It feels like we'd never reach this point, but we finally have a poster for Lionsgate's Chaos Walking. It's been more than three years since filming on Chaos Walking began, with a relatively standard production process extending into years of additional work — primarily reshoots — so Patrick Ness's science fiction novel The Knife of Never Letting Go could finally come to the big screen. Chaos Walking is directed by Doug Liman and stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley. (Both actors filmed the movie pre-Spider-Man: Far from Home and pre-Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, …

First Chaos Walking Poster Has Daisy Ridley & Tom Holland Trying to Escape the Noise

First Chaos Walking Poster Has Daisy Ridley & Tom Holland Trying to Escape the Noise
The long-delayed Chaos Walking movie has revealed its first poster. The sci-fi flick stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley and has been on Lionsgate's schedule for some time now. Delays such as this are often not a great sign but, be that as it may, the studio spent a lot of money on this adaptation and it needs to make its way out into the world at some point. If this poster is to be believed, that time will be soon.

Not much information can be extracted from the poster. It features the heads of Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley's characters along with planets, forest and fire. It looks very much like a poster for a YA movie adaptation. Chaos Walking is based on the acclaimed novel The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. So it is on-brand. Beyond that, it comes with the tagline, "No one escapes the noise.

Fantastic Beasts Missed the Boat on Embracing Gay Representation

Fantastic Beasts Missed the Boat on Embracing Gay Representation
There’s no fixing the first two Fantastic Beasts movies in the Harry Potter prequel franchise. They’re narratively muddled, lack inspiring central characters, have concerning things to say about the rise of fascism, and notably refuse to make Dumbledore explicitly gay. However, with the third film in the franchise looking to recast Grindelwald, and with Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen rumored to be in talks for the role, the franchise has a chance to right itself when it comes to at least that last issue. But, with noted Terf Rowling reprising her role as both screenwriter and executive producer for the as-of-yet untitled film, a question presents itself: should it? Or, in other words: at this point, is poor representation better than no representation when it comes to a situation like Fantastic Beasts?

It’s hard to debate this sort of thing before the fact. We don’t know what

Disney Has Reportedly Talked With Chris Evans About Star Wars Role

Disney Has Reportedly Talked With Chris Evans About Star Wars Role
Chris Evans may have only recently bowed out as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Captain America after playing the star-spangled superhero for close to a decade, but that doesn’t mean he’s turned his back on blockbuster franchises entirely. Of course, the actor was very reluctant to accept the role in the first place for fears of being typecast so early in his career, but after agreeing to sign on the dotted line at the third time of asking, his decision has proven to be hugely vindicated.

Throughout his tenure as part of the McU, Evans alternated between his mega budget comic book projects and smaller character-driven pieces that would test him as an actor like biographical crime drama The Iceman, dystopian thriller Snowpiercer, self-directed romance Before We Go and touching feel-good story Gifted. Since bowing out of the world’s biggest franchise, though, he’s only been seen

2021 Oscar Predictions: Best Sound [Updated: November 11]

2021 Oscar Predictions: Best Sound [Updated: November 11]
The motion picture academy has made it a little easier to predict the winners this year by combining Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing into one new category: Best Sound. Both sound mixers and sound editors will be recognized in the new category. Up to six statuettes will be awarded to one production sound mixer, two supervising sound editors and three re-recording mixers.

It can be difficult to differentiate the sound mixing of a film from the sound editing. While the members of the sound branch are experts in the two fields, the rest of the Oscar voters may not be as versed. Sound editing is the art of putting together the various pieces of the sound track Sound mixing adjusts the overall sound and score levels throughout the film. (Scroll down for the most up-to-date 2021 Oscar predictions for Best Sound.)
