Simon Pegg Star Wars

Back during the production of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, rumors swirled that J.J. Abrams had brought his Star Trek franchise star (and now sequel co-writer) Simon Pegg into the galaxy far, far away for some kind of cameo in the movie. That rumor was confirmed when Pegg popped up in the Comic-Con sizzle reel from this past summer, wearing a big fat suit, apparently playing some kind of alien.

Now you can finally see what he looks like thanks to a new The Force Awakens featurette from the Disney Channel that focuses on Rey (Daisy Ridley). However, if you’re one of those fans who doesn’t want to see anymore footage, you may want to steer clear, because there are some new snippets of footage, both from the movie and behind the scenes. You’ve been warned! Read More »

Then, the film was criticized for its prominently white cast. Considering Gods of Egypt is, you know, based in Egypt, it’s a puzzling, if not completely surprising, choice that all the major leads — Gerard ButlerNikola Coster-Waldau, and Brenton Thwaites — are white.

After the jump, read what Lionsgate and director Alex Proyas have to say about the Gods of Egypt whitewashing.

the conjuring 2 photos

Director James Wan has posted a new batch of photos from the set of his sequel to The Conjuring and now we can’t help but wish this movie was titled An American Exorcist Couple in London.

Dumb jokes aside, these images do give us a tiny taste of the upcoming sequel, which is actually called The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist and is set in England in the mid-1970s. Originally shared on Wan’s Twitter and Instagram pages, these photos show off the cast in period costume, Marylebone Station transported a few decades into the past, and even a tease of the film’s Christmastime setting.

You can check out the Conjuring 2 photos for yourself after the jump.
