Michael B. Jordan Confirms Rocky Spin-Off Movie, Talks Star Wars, Fantastic Four And More
Hollywood seems to be very eager to make Michael B. Jordan the next big thing. First garnering notice for his work in the low-budget superhero movie Chronicle, the young actor earned rave reviews earlier this year for his starring role in Sundance Winner Fruitvale Station, and since then has been rumored for some major upcoming projects.
Star Wars, Marvel And The 5 Films Gravity Is Forcing To Step Up Their Game
No matter what happens, at least in the short term, movies set in or around outer space are going to be compared to Gravity. “Sure, it looks OK, but it’s not Gravity.” Unfair? Maybe. But it’s reality. So what are the five upcoming sci-fi projects that should be a little bit concerned by the success of Cuaron’s Gravity?
George Lucas Is 'Constantly Talking' to J.J. Abrams About Star Wars
Lucas’s son, Jett, talks about his dad’s ongoing involvement in the developing series. He talks about his dad being “torn” on the matter of handing the franchise over to new creators (not just to Abrams, but to other directors who’ll be able to now play in this sandbox)
Saoirse Ronan's Star Wars Episode VII Audition Included Lightsabers
What do you picture in your mind when you read about the plethora of actors allegedly going in for auditions on J.J. Abrams cloaked-in-secret Star Wars: Episode VII? Does it involve actors miming an escape from a Sarlacc pit or acting as if they’re standing aboard a ship that’s being attacked? Surely Abrams & Co. aren’t letting actors run around with lightsabers, are they? They are!
J.J. Abrams Apologizes For Constant Use Of Lens Flares
"I was showing my wife an early cut of Star Trek Into Darkness," he said, "and there was this one scene where she was literally like, ‘I just can’t see what’s going on. I don’t understand what that is.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I went too nuts on this.’”
Star Wars: Episode VII Auditioners Include Saoirse Ronan And A Possible New Chewbacca
We might be falling into a trap by making slightly misguided assumption. The Star Wars universe is vast, and just because a character in Abrams’ new movie might be tall doesn’t mean it HAS to be Chewbacca.
Star Wars: Episode VII May Be Shot On IMAX Cameras
With the 3D trend visibly dying out, movie theaters and studios are looking for even more ways to get people to actually leave their houses to go to the movies, and thus far the hippest new thing is IMAX. The large format that used to be limited to planetariums has been used to dazzling effect in films like The Dark Knight Rises and the upcoming Gravity, and more and more filmmakers are adopting it to make their big-budget spectacles all the more spectacular. Will J.J. Abrams be the next to jump on board?
David Oyelowo And Michael B. Jordan Now Rumored For Star Wars: Episode VII
David Oyelowo of Lee Daniel’s The Butler and Michael B. Jordan of Fruitvale Station have taken meetings about the film. Of course a meeting is far from a guarantee in casting, but Jordan is said to have met personally with Abrams, which is a bit more promising.
J.J. Abrams Wants Star Wars: Episode VII To Feel 'Real'
He throws the word “real” around a lot. Which is fine. It backs up this sentiment that Abrams is going to counter the digital chilliness of Lucas’ prequel trilogy with the promise of practical effects.
Star Wars: Episode VII Eyeing Saoirse Ronan For Mystery Role?
Virtually none of the rumors about Star Wars: Episode VII have been confirmed, but a few have been repeated so many times they're starting to feel more true, like buzz that the original cast will return or that a teenage girl will be among the main new characters. It's that second rumor that seems most interesting on the heels of a new rumor
How To Make Star Wars Episode VII Good: The Experts Speak Out
What do they suggest? Stay away from members of the Original Trilogy! Or, make them the ONLY members of the cast. Fair enough. What else? Find a balance between light adventure and dark mythology. Return to the gravity of the first trilogy. That's all.
Star Wars Spin-Off Movies Could Be Origin Stories
Honestly, this is kind of a disappointing direction for this idea to go, as history has proven that the terms "Star Wars" and "prequel" do not get along. I can't speak for everybody, but I don't want to watch a movie about when Han met Chewbacca - I want to see them in their pre-Rebel Alliance days when they were getting by as smugglers and setting records on the Kessel Run.
See The Secret Star Wars Easter Egg From Into Star Trek Into Darkness
See that hunk of metal in the circle there? Don't you dare call it a hunk of metal, or a stupid little short-circuit or any other kind of C-3PO insults. That's R2-D2, being sucked out of the U.S.S. Enterprise and into space in the middle of the Vengeance's attack in Star Trek Into Darkness. Yes, R2-D2 in Star Trek. It's a crazy world we live in
Star Wars: Episode VII Casting Rumor Gets Possible Confirmation From Lucasfilm
We've been waiting patiently for a glimpse behind the scenes of Star Wars: Episode VII, but we admit, we didn't quite expect it to happen like this. Latino Review's El Mayimbe has dug up a post from a different Star Wars fan site, Obi Wants To Know Me, where a Lucasfilm employee appears to be looking for fan reactions to a a recent rumor-- one that started at Latino Review, it's worth noting-- that Alex Pettyfer and Rachel Hurd-Wood were in the running for roles
