Lucasfilm announces the release dates for Star Wars: Episode IX and Indiana Jones 5

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lucasfilm and Walt Disney have made two major announcements for a pair of hugely anticipated films. Star Wars: Episode IX has finally been given a release date, as has the much discussed and long rumoured Indiana Jones 5.

Whereas Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi have been released during the holiday season, Episode IX is getting a traditional May release like its older predecessors. Colin Trevorrow’s final film in the new trilogy will be released on May 24th, 2019. However, The Last Jedi was also scheduled for release this May before being pushed back so it is possible we could see the same thing happen with Episode IX.

The film will close out the Sequel Trilogy and will likely see the return of new stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver, but Mark Hamill’s appearance in the film is still »

Steven Soderbergh explains why he came out of retirement for Logan Lucky

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite announcing his retirement from feature directing following 2013’s Side Effects and Behind the Candelabra, filmmaker Steven Soderbergh is back behind the camera this year for the heist caper Logan Lucky, and during an interview with Entertainment Weekly he has explained what drew him to this latest film.

“I was sitting there on [The Knick] set, realizing that this is the job that I should be doing,” said Soderbergh. “This is my job. I should be directing stuff. Nobody’s waiting around for my paintings. So I kind of flipped a switch. I got reconnected with what I like about the job… I wasn’t really thinking about movies… until this script came in over the transom. If it hadn’t, I think everything would be TV oriented.”

“On the most obvious level, it’s the complete inversion of an Ocean’s movie,” he continued. “It’s an anti-glam version of an Ocean’s movie. »

That Rihanna/Lupita Nyong’o Movie Could Actually Happen, If Ava DuVernay and Issa Rae Have Anything to Say About It

24 April 2017 3:41 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Is a viral tweet being made into a movie? A picture of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o sitting next to each other caught the attention of many last week, including a Twitter user going by simply “k” who suggested that “Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scans.” The “12 Years a Slave” star took notice (“I’m down if you are,” she tweeted at Rhianna), as did her potential co-star: “I’m in Pit’z,” responded the singer-turned-actress.

Each of these tweets proved massively popular, and so a dream team was assembled in would-be viewers’ hearts: Ava DuVernay (“Selma,” “13th”) as director, Issa Rae (“Awkward Black Girl,” “Insecure”) as screenwriter. Both have expressed their interest on Twitter — “Lights set. »

Rumour: Luke Skywalker’s necklace holds a secret in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

24 April 2017 3:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The center of many conversations regarding Star Wars: The Last Jedi tends to be around why Luke Skywalker feels the Jedi order must be come to an end. While we don’t have an answer as to why yet – and likely won’t until the film is released – we do now have an interesting nugget of information about Luke Skywalker, which could potentially reveal a major plot point for Episode VIII.

Earlier in the year it was reported by Making Star Wars that Luke Skywalker had kept a piece of the Kyber crystal from Darth Vader’s lightsaber, and now the site is going one step further by stating Luke wears a necklace with a “red crystal protruding from the bottom of it” in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The site also goes more into detail explaining that: “If Luke Skywalker has the last Darth Vader Kyber crystal, someone like »

Steven Soderbergh talks up his return to directing with Lucky Logan

24 April 2017 12:39 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Steven Soderbergh has been off our screens as a director since 2013 when he directed the HBO feature Behind The Candelabra. He has, in the years since however, acted as producer, director of photography and editor on Magic Mike Xxl and directed every episode of the Clive Owen TV drama The Knick. Following the initial ‘directing retirement’, Soderbergh returns wielding a megaphone for the forthcoming heist film Lucky Logan later this year.

The film stars Daniel CraigChanning Tatum, Adam Driver, and Riley Keough and revolves around the world of three siblings who plan a heist at the Charlotte Motor Speedway just before the biggest race of the year. The filmmaker sat down to talk to Entertainment Weekly about his next film, which has a lot of similarities to arguably his most famous work, the Ocean’s Eleven trilogy.

Last Jedi Isn't Repeating Empire Strikes Back Says Director

23 April 2017 12:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For more than a week now, fans all over the world have been rewatching and picking apart every single frame of the first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Since Disney and Lucasfilm had been very quiet on the details about the movie up to that point, there was an awful lot of excitement, but there has also been some concern that this movie will just be repeating the story beats of The Empire Strikes Back. Director Rian Johnson has put that theory to bed, albeit in a pretty snarky way.

Rian Johnson is quite active on social media and, on a fairly regular basis, will engage with fans and even answer some question they may have. Recently. Someone on Twitter suggested that Star Wars 8 is just going to copy The Empire Strikes Back and said, "Nothing new here." Rian Johnson didn't seem to like that suggestion. Here is his response. »

Robert Pattinson: From Bedhead to Bushy Beard

23 April 2017 5:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

He’s taken one of the most fascinating and unconventional routes with his stardom.

The thinkpiece-industrial complex is running at full speed this spring to update the cinephile community’s consensus of major stars. In case you’re behind, adjust your opinions to reflect the following changes: Reese Witherspoon is still good, Kristen Stewart is now really good, Anne Hathaway is great because her haters were sexist, and Nicole Kidman is underappreciated despite receiving an Oscar nomination this very year.

One star whose evaluation has yet to appear from the hot take factory is Robert Pattinson, who features in two theatrical releases this April, Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert (quickly dumped in theaters and VOD over two years after its 2015 Berlin premiere) and James Gray’s The Lost City of Z. Five years ago, the cultural ubiquity of “R-Pattz” was so enormous that the future President of the United States tweeted about him six times »

Oscar Isaac talks Star Wars: The Last Jedi and filming with Carrie Fisher

22 April 2017 3:36 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Oscar Isaac was absent from Star Wars Celebration last weekend due to a scheduling conflict, the actor has taken the opportunity to discuss his upcoming return as Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Last Jedi during various promotional images for his new film The Promise.

“[Poe] will be challenged, in a very intense way that will reveal a lot more about his character,” he told Movieweb. “The characters that you know already: their specific character flaws or their weaknesses get tested. And out of that, I think, you get to see a bit more of who they are. The best way to learn about somebody is to see them in a crisis.”

Speaking to Business Insider, Isaac also talked about shooting an action scene with the late Carrie Fisher, stating that: “It was basically my first day [on set] and we did about 25 takes total. Half of them were on me and »

Newswire: Adam Driver sports a prosthetic hand in the first look at Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky

21 April 2017 5:09 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

After a few years spent down in the grimy, self-surgery-filled trenches of TV, Steven Soderbergh finally got back to the world of film this year, tapping Channing Tatum, Riley Keough, Adam Driver, and Daniel Craig to star in his backwoods heist comedy Logan Lucky. Now, Entertainment Weekly has the first photo from the film, showing off Tatum’s easy charm, Keough’s laid-back style, and—oh shit, does Adam Driver have a rubber hand?

Apparently; that’s just one of the reveals Soderbergh made about the film, which he’s describing as an “Ocean’s movie that’s up on cement blocks in your front yard.” He also talked about working with Nascar to ensure the film’s plot—in which Tatum, Keough, and Driver attempt to rob the box office at the Coca-Cola 600—was properly authentic, and finally admitted that his self-imposed retirement to work on his painting ...

New Image from ‘Logan Lucky’ Arrives as Steven Soderbergh Talks New Distribution Plans

21 April 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Steven Soderbergh is back — although he never really went away. The filmmaker hasn’t helmed a movie since 2013’s Behind the Candelabra, but that didn’t stop him from directing 20 episodes of The Knick on Cinemax and serving as executive producer on Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience and Amazon’s Red Oaks.

Now Soderbergh is returning to the big screen with Logan Lucky, a heist film starring Adam Driver, Channing Tatum, Seth MacFarlane, Daniel Craig, Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank, Katherine Waterston and Sebastian Stan, revolving around the Coca-Cola 600, an annual 600-mile Nascar race held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina during Memorial Day weekend.

Soderbergh sat down with Entertainment Weekly and dropped several details about the film (along with a new photo), including what drew him back to filmmaking and the unique way Logan Lucky will be distributed, via Bleecker Street and Soderbergh’s own Fingerprint Releasing. “I »

‘Logan Lucky’: Steven Soderbergh Says His First Film in Four Years Is ‘An Anti-Glam Version of an Ocean’s Movie’

21 April 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As retirements go, Steven Soderbergh’s lasted just a little longer than Terry Funk’s. That’s in part because the prolific writer/director never stopped working after “Behind the Candelabra,” even if his masterful work on “The Knick” aired on the small screen rather than the silver one. He’s returning to feature filmmaking with this summer’s “Logan Lucky,” which he says he decided to direct because he “couldn’t bear the thought of somebody else getting to do it.”

That’s from a new Entertainment Weekly interview about the film, a caper starring Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough and Daniel Craig. Soderbergh says that, despite any superficial similarities to a certain heist trilogy he directed, “Logan Lucky” is actually “the complete inversion of an ‘Ocean’s’ movie. »

Expect Rey, Finn And Poe To Be Put To The Test In Star Wars: The Last Jedi

21 April 2017 9:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s only during times of adversity where we reveal our true sense of character – at least, that’s how the old saying goes, and Oscar Isaac believes that adage can be applied to Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Ever since the official title was revealed back in January, Rian Johnson’s blockbuster sequel has been pitched as a much darker, slightly more intense film than its next of kin, The Force Awakens. That’s a shift in tone that shone through The Last Jedi‘s inaugural teaser, in which Daisy Ridley’s Force user started to wrangle her Jedi abilities under control. Dark and difficult times lie ahead for Rey, though, and that’s something Oscar Isaac echoed during an interview with The Guardian.

Isaac, who’s currently in the midst of The Promise‘s press tour, recently touched on the “intense” scene he shared with the late, great Carrie Fisher. »

Why Kylo Ren Has a Different Scar in Star Wars 8

20 April 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The long wait for the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer finally ended last week when it debuted at Star Wars Celebration, and was soon widely revered around the world. While Star Wars fans are among the most passionate of any franchise, they are also the most detail-oriented, with many scouring through every single second of footage to find the most subtle of clues. One eagle-eyed fan noticed something quite peculiar in this new trailer, involving Kylo Ren's (Adam Driver) scar, with director Rian Johnson addressing and explaining why the scar looks different from The Force Awakens to The Last Jedi.

Towards the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren engaged in an epic lightsaber battle with Rey (Daisy Ridley), who proved to be a much more worthy adversary than he imagined. Rey ultimately got the best of Kylo Ren, leaving the villain with a nasty scar »

Director Rian Johnson Weighs In On The Subtle Change To Kylo Ren Ahead Of Star Wars: The Last Jedi

20 April 2017 9:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

By now, you’ve surely clocked eyes on the official first teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Disney and Lucasfilm lifted the lid on Rian Johnson’s blockbuster at last weekend’s Celebration event in Orlando and since then, not a day goes by without a fresh wave of rumors spilling onto the interwebs.

The latest purportedly offered some context to Ahch-To’s alien wildlife and a heartfelt reunion (more details here), but today’s news item comes directly from the horse’s mouth: Rian Johnson.

Taking to Twitter (via Cbm), The Last Jedi‘s writer-director confirmed what many had already assumed: the scar on Kylo Ren’s face is slightly different to the one seen in The Force Awakens. Adam Driver’s mercurial warrior appears very briefly in the trailer, seen staring down the beam of his crossguard Lightsaber. But it didn’t take long for eagle-eyed fans »

Rian Johnson explains why Kylo Ren’s scar is different in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

20 April 2017 4:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi may only be two minutes, but that hasn’t stopped fans from pouring over every screenshot they can for details on the film. One shot in particular has raised some questions, though not necessarily about the film’s story.

The trailer briefly shows Kylo Ren brandishing his lightsaber as he prepares for a fight, but intrepid viewers have noticed something different about him: the scar he received from Rey at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is slightly different, moved closer to the right side of his face rather than the middle.

For a closer look at the change in his injury, here are shots from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi to compare:

Director Rian Johnson was asked on Twitter why the scar was changed – whether it was a continuity error or simply for aesthetic. Johnson explained »

Here's the Luke and Han Reunion Force Awakens Refused to Give Us

19 April 2017 4:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week during Star Wars Celebration, Mark Hamill was perhaps one of the only Star Wars icons who was there for all four days, whether it was hosting panels like his Carrie Fisher tribute or Hamill Himself, or just signing autographs for fans. During the massive Star Wars 40th Anniversary panel that kicked off the entire weekend on Thursday, no one was surprised when Mark Hamill stopped by, but many were quite shocked when Harrison Ford arrived, making his first appearance ever at Star Wars Celebration. Mark Hamill shared two candid photos from Celebration reuniting with his longtime friend Harrison Ford, a reunion that sadly was deprived from fans in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, along with another where he was photographed with Hayden Christensen from the prequel trilogy.

Mark Hamill posted two slightly different versions of essentially the same photo on Twitter, with both Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill »
