Reports have been coming in lately that the original three cast members (Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford) are all pretty much set to return to the galaxy far, far away, but we outside of them, we haven't heard much about other major returning characters. Now it appears as though Lando himself has been asked to return, and bring the sexy back, to Episode VII.
Chris Nolan has official signed on to direct Interstellar, which will be his first follow-up film to The Dark Knight Rises. Paramount and Warner Bros are working together to produce and distribute the hard science fiction tale, and now that he's signed on, an official release date has been revealed.
The very first trailers for Oblivion and After Earth came out around the same time back in December, and they looked incredibly similar. Both featured post-apocalyptic Earth setting, and had some incredibly similar visuals. Now new trailers for both films have come out once again within a week of each other, and we take a look to see if they've managed to differentiate themselves, and whether one is pulling ahead of the other.
If you had somehow forgotten that the movie adaptation of Orson Scott Card's beloved science fiction story, Ender's Game, was hitting theaters this year, you'd probably be forgiven. So far, the film hasn't had much in the way of marketing, but that's about to change. Today we've a brand new official still showing off Hailee Steinfeld as Petra, and a look at the battle school army logos.
The sequel to 2011's amazing Rise of the Planet of the Apes is set to hit theaters next Summer, and will supposedly begin shooting here in the Spring. Outside of Andy Serkis returning as the ape Caesar, not much in the way of casting has been announced. Now, at least, we'll know who will be starring in the film, on the human side of things. Full report inside.
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with a pair of actors from the just released (on blu-ray at least) Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome, in order to talk about their roles in the web-series turned TV movie and why Battlestar Galactica has so much appeal to viewers and rabid fans.
While official news on the upcoming Star Wars films has been lacking, there's been no shortage of rumors nor people attached the original films acknowledging their willingness and outright desire to come back to the high profile franchise. Everyone from prequel stars wanting another shot (or their own film) to the original actors saying they're ready to come back, there's no shortage of interest in the new films. The next person to add himself to that list is none other than composer John Williams.
As we all know Benedict Cumberbatch's role in the upcoming Star Trek sequel has been something of a mystery, one that has had fans speculating since filming first began. The evidence has been pointing in mostly one direction, and now it looks as though Entertainment Weekly has just spoiled it on their website. I won't rule out that it might be a typo...but just in case you don't want to know (though I doubt it'll be much of a spoiler) I'll tell you more about it after the jump.
Back when Star Wars Episode VII was announced, one of the first directors rumored to be helming was J.J. Abrams...who subsequently shot that speculation down. Now reports are coming in that he is now taking the director's chair.
It is a glorious time to be a nerd right now. We're getting a new Star Wars trilogy (starting in 2015), Jurassic Park 4 finally has a release date, and now word is coming in that Zack Snyder is working on ANOTHER Star Wars film that will be a standalone movie apart from the upcoming trilogy.
