Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 Key Art

If you’re not watching The Star Wars Show, Disney’s official weekly Star Wars weberies, you should be. This week’s edition opens with a funny video from the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII featuring director Rian Johnson and Chewbacca. But not only that, the show has revealed the key art for Star Wars Celebration Europe, which features both the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens/Episode 8 and the new cast for Star Wars: Rogue One. Sure, this might have been more cool if that Rogue One art didn’t leak online last week, but its still cool seeing this cast in this layout including a full reveal of Ben Mendelsohn as Director Krennic. But the art (and show) gives us our first look at a new model of AT-At and a new rank of Stormtrooper. Find out the names and more, after the jump.

Big Trouble Remake

A year ago we learned that The Rock would be starring in a big screen remake of Big Trouble In Little China, but we haven’t heard much about it since then. Sometimes when you don’t hear about a film project for a long time you just assume that it could have fallen into development heck. I thought this might be the case with The Rock’s Big Trouble remake, especially since the action star keeps getting attached to so many new projects, like the Jumanji remake and the Robert Ludlum cinematic universe. I mean, how much time does this man have?

But according to Dwayne Johnson, the film is still in the works. Find out what The Rock said, after the jump.

Zero Days Trailer

Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney‘s (Taxi to the Dark Side) new movie Zero Days premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival and has been playing the film festival tour before it hits theaters this July. The film is about the world of cyberwar. The title is a reference to the concept of a zero day vulnerability, which is a hole in software that can be exploited by hackers. Once the flaw becomes known, the software’s author has zero days in which to plan and advise any mitigation against its exploitation.

We’ve seen many movies about these kind of things, and in today’s technology driven world, its a real threat. Magnolia Pictures has released a new Zero Day trailer, which you can watch after the jump.

Thor and Hulk

Even though the cast has been officially announced, we don’t know a hell of a lot about Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok. We know that the new cast is amazing (Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, c’mon). Cate Blanchett playing the film’s mysterious and powerful new villain Hela gives us some clues. And we also know that Mark Ruffalo will be reprising his role as Bruce Banner and The Hulk for this third installment of the Thor franchise. But we didn’t expect Thor: Ragnarok to be an action-comedy about the god of thunder and a gama-rey exposed scientist traveling across space, fighting evil baddies. According to Mark Ruffalo, thats exactly what the film is.

Lesbian couple in Finding Dory

Disney has been known to be a very progressive company (having brought the first openly gay sitcom character to network television in 1997 on the Ellen show) but they have recently come under fire from GLADD for not featuring even one gay character in the 11 feature films they released last year. There is no denying it, there is a lack of representation of gay characters in Disney’s big screen movies.

Fans recently petitioned the studio to give Elsa a girlfriend in Frozen 2, GLAAD called upon the studio to include LGBT characters in the Star Wars universe while the filmmakers and producers at Marvel have been very encouraging of the idea of bringing an openly gay character to the MCU. And while we might have to wait a bit longer to see an openly gay major character in one of those universes, I was happy to see what might be a lesbian couple in this morning’s Finding Dory trailer.

Comixology Unlimited

I have a love/hate relationship with Comixology. I love it because I can get all the comics I want without having to leave my home. I hate it because the amount of money I’m paying for comic book subscriptions have reached an all-time high. But today Comixology announced a new service called Comixology Unlimited that promises to be the Spotify or Netflix for comics (but we’ve heard that claim before). So what is this new digital comic book subscription service and why should or shouldn’t you get it? Find out the details, after the jump.

Now You See Me 2 clips

I’ve been itching to see Now You See Me 2 since I screened the first 15 minutes of the film at CinemaCon and a bomb scare in the theater somehow made the rest of the movie disappear. The trailers are compelling, although the CG-ness of some of the illusions still has me hesitant. Lionsgate has released two new clips from the upcoming magic heist sequel. Watch them now after the jump and tell me if they make you any more excited for the Jon Chu-directed thriller.

animated garfield movie

Alcon Entertainment has secured the rights to produce a animated feature film based on the iconic comic strip Garfield. Unlike the previous 20th Century Fox films, this new movie will be fully CG-animated as opposed to CG/live-action hybrid. Also the inclusion of Garfield creator Jim Davis as executive producer seems to suggest that the new movie will be closer in tone to the original comic strips and animated television series. Read the full press release after the jump.

Star Trek Beyond Set Visit

Last Summer, I visited the set of Star Trek Beyond in Vancouver, Canada. Find out what I learned on set, including how over 50 new alien species were created for this film in honor of Trek’s 50th anniversary, how director Justin Lin has put an end to JJ Abrams’ “camera hand jobs” (yes, you just read that right) and much much more.
