Rian Johnson has shared a few photos from the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII — nothing too revealing, of course, but as the director nears the end of production on the upcoming sequel, his latest photo offers something a little more intriguing. It’s not particularly revelatory, but the image does feature an article of clothing that looks mighty familiar.
Each installment of the Fast & Furious franchise finds some way to top its predecessors, whether it’s dropping cars out of planes or driving them in, through or across buildings. The development meetings for these movies must be filled with all kinds of crazy ideas, and you can see two of those concepts play out in a couple of new videos from the set of Fast 8. If you were wondering when we might see Fast & Furious on ice, that time is now (or next spring, when the film hits theaters).
Shane Black’s The Nice Guys is currently in theaters, and while you have plenty of viewing options this weekend, making time to see his dark crime comedy should be your chief priority. While making the press rounds for that film, Black has been talking up some of his other projects, past and present, including his idea for another Lethal Weapon sequel that he never got to make.
Robert Downey Jr. recently surprised fans when he revealed that Sherlock Holmes 3 is not only still on, but it could very well begin filming this fall. And now the franchise’s producer has chimed in, reiterating Downey Jr.’s optimism about potentially heading into production this year, while also revealing that it might not be the last sequel in the series.
In news that may come as a disappointment to fans of the Assassin’s Creed video games, it appears that Justin Kurzel’s big screen adaptation of the series is primarily set in present day. As most fans of the games will tell you, the best, most exciting and immersive stuff happens in the sequences set in the past. But the film could still be good, right? Michael Fassbender certainly thinks so, but he’s kind of paid to think that.
The Force Awakens was a pretty epic return to the world of Star Wars, and it’ll be interesting to see how Rian Johnson follows it up with Episode VIII. We’ve seen a few set photos (though nothing particularly revealing), but with the sequel not hitting theaters until December 2017, it’s going to be quite a while before we see anything substantial. While John Boyega isn’t at liberty to say too much about Episode VIII, he does offer a couple of pieces of info that should help you manage your expectations.
It was reported last week that foreign distribution rights were being shopped around Cannes for Martin Scorsese’s long-developing mob drama The Irishman — a project that’s been gestating for so long that we started to think it might not ever happen. But STX Entertainment has snatched up the rights to distribute the film overseas, which means that The Irishman is finally happening after all.
Last night, J.J. Abrams participated in a Q&A with Chris Rock at the Tribeca Film Festival, where topics ranged from superhero films to lens flares to — inevitably — Star Wars: The Force Awakens. When asked if Rey’s parents are in the film, Abrams basically said no, sending fans into a speculation spiral as they crossed Han Solo, Luke and Leia off their lists and prepared to begin a new chapter in their theorizing. But then Abrams clarified his comments in a later statement, taking us right back to where we started with this whole crazy speculation game.
You may not immediately recognize the name Erik Bauersfeld, but you are undoubtedly familiar with his most famous line. The actor was the voice of Admiral Ackbar in Return of the Jedi, helping to popularize the alien’s signature phrase, “It’s a trap!” Bauersfeld has passed away at the age of 93, and though he’ll be remembered most for his role in Star Wars, the actor also worked with great directors like Guillermo del Toro and Steven Spielberg.
Hey guys, remember Star Wars? The Force Awakens hits DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, with enough special features to keep you occupied until Rogue One arrives later this year — but lest you forget, Episode VIII is currently filming for a 2017 release, and director Rian Johnson has shared a new photo from the set teasing the return of a certain spectacled and wise alien played by one Lupita Nyong’o.
