BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The first spinoff Star Wars film now has a title. Rogue One will be the first official solo, standalone Star Wars film, according to reports just released by Disney.
With J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the final stretch, so much of Disney’s attention will turn to the first of the planned solo, standalone films that had been farmed out to upcoming talents.
There are three well-known names that are supposedly being looked at by Marvel to direct 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok. Here are the frontrunners and what their chances are for joining the project.
With the names of actresses like Rooney Mara, Felicity Jones and Tatiana Maslany coming up as possible leads for one of the standalone Star Wars films, we thought it would be as a good a time as any to come up with 5 female characters on which the first film could focus. So, let’s see how well a lightsaber can break a glass ceiling and get to the list!
As we get closer to the release of Star Wars: Episode 7 this December 18, we’re still waiting ever so patiently to hear more about the first Star Wars spin-off film from Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards. However, recent comments from Disney CEO Bob Iger have caused some to speculate that they might not be what Star Wars fans are expecting.
The Star Wars spinoff movie looks as though it has found its lead actress, and you've probably never heard of her.
The original Star Wars trilogy was pretty damn light when it came to female characters, but the new generation of films looks to completely change that record.
We’re still months away from having our first Star Wars movie in theaters in years. I’m thinking a new trailer might drop soon, maybe even with some dialogue that clarifies the direction Kinberg and Abrams want this new franchise to head.
Discussion about a set of Star Wars spin-off films, is just one more reason to get excited for 2016. But, unfortunately, some bad news ahead for the first standalone film.
In case you hadn’t heard, Paul’s name was loosely attached to the solo Star Wars movie that Godzilla director Gareth Edwards will direct for Disney. Some took the next step and connected Paul’s name to the part of young Han Solo – even though we don’t even know that Solo will be a character in this movie.
2015 is the year that Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens hits theaters. Hopefully this year will also bring the answers to some very important Star Wars questions.
J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens should give us a pretty good sense of what to expect from Rian Johnson's Star Wars: Episode VIII and Episode IX, but the films that really remain complete mysteries are the films in between - a.k.a. the spin-0ffs. These three projects have the potential to be set at any point in the Star Wars timeline and could follow an infinite number of stories.
The 2016 Star Wars spinoff film by Gareth Edwards and Gary Whitta will most likely center around this important, intergalactic heist. We've got the rumored plot for you here.
Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla successfully rebooted the long-dormant monster franchise, wiping away the tainted memory of the Roland Emmerich effort and returning the King of the Monsters to his rightful place atop the creature food chain.
Godzilla 2 is expected to be a monster mash, with the scaly legend doing battle with (or teaming up with) Ghidorah, Mothra and Rodan, amaking this something of an update of Destroy All Monsters, or possibly Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster, where Godzilla teamed up with the other two to take on the tri-skulled baddie.
More importantly, he showed a secret file from “Project Monach” that revealed the secrets to be uncovered in the next film, a nice treat for a movie that's years and years away. As it turns out, Godzilla has some new threats to worry about. And by new threats, I mean very very old threats.
Gareth Edwards went from directing a small indie film to rebooting a gigantic franchise in the space of a couple short years. Now the rising filmmaker is about to become a part of a galaxy far, far away from what he's used to, thanks to his new gig on the first Star Wars standalone film. So how does this effect his duties on the newly minted Legendary Pictures franchise?
J.J. Abrams is currently hard at work on resurrecting the Star Wars franchise, having just recently started working on Star Wars: Episode VII, but he is now no longer the only director working to bring the legendary sci-fi franchise back to the big screen. Gareth Edwards, who experienced monster box office success last weekend with the release of the new Godzilla reboot, has become the first filmmaker hired to helm one of the Disney and Lucasfilm's planned Star Wars spin-off movies.
It was more than a year ago that crowds at San Diego Comic Con got their first look at Godzilla, a new take on the classic monster movie with Monsters helmer Gareth Edwards behind it. Since then Godzilla has returned to Comic Con and brought a teaser that actually includes the cast, but only now is that first tease now available online for all of us to see
The teaser doesn’t really give much of an indication one way or the other. I like the ominous tone, and the visual of a giant tentacled creature being driven away on a truck will get me every time. But just watching military men slowly walk through the dust and stare off at something that I can’t see isn’t that intriguing.
The truth is that we know very little about the film's plot, but what we do know is that the movie has one absolutely stacked cast, including Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston.
Say what you will about promising a giant lizard movie would be realistic, but Edwards proved with Monsters he could make a genre movie low-to-the-ground and character-based, and it's exciting to hunk of how he might do it on a larger budget too. The new Godzilla movie is set for release May 16; are you as enthusiastic about it as we are?
After months of rumors without anyone confirming anything, Legendary Pictures finally rose from the sea and admitted the company is making a Godzilla remake. The announcement came after the Pacific Rim presentation ended, and the news was greeted with raucous approval from the crowd in Comic Con’s Hall H.
today in Hall H, after the Pacific Rim presentation ended, a surprise trailer for Godzilla screened for the thrilled audience. They also announced that Gareth Edwards, who formerly made the indie Monsters, will be directing the Godzilla remake-- then Edwards himself took the stage in front of an ecstatic crowd
Gareth Edwards’ Monsters was a modest hit back in 2010, burning up the film festival circuit (with a memorable stop in Austin for SXSW) and earning decent box office overseas. The film – about a man and woman trying to cross a forbidden area of Central America that had been restricted due to the presence of lethal creatures – was made on a shoestring budget but made overnight stars of Edwards and his leading man, Scoot McNairy.
