Star Wars Episode 7 Set Photos

Over the last week, we’ve seen a bunch of ariel photos of the Star Wars Episode VII captured from Greenham Common set whilst filming the GAMA bunkers. The photos have shown a few X-Wing including a black-colored model, as well as the Millennium Falcon which JJ Abrams later released an official video of. We’ve also seen photos of some of the actors in costume, including a possible reveal of Adam Driver’s role in the movie. Now some new set photos have appeared online, giving us a much much closer view of the props and sets. Also word has come out that the production may have ordered a “DroneShield” to try to prevent these kind of photo leaks.

Interstellar

Great directors can get their actors to go to the ends of the Earth for them. In Interstellar, Christopher Nolan inspires his to go beyond.

Well — not literally, since we assume the film was still shot on Earth. But the film definitely sends them off-planet. And so does the new Interstellar ad, which shows star Matthew McConaughey in a strange alien landscape. Hit the jump to see the new Interstellar poster.

Update: We’ve now got two new Interstellar posters. One shows a vision dramatically different from the ice planet image. We’ll assume it isn’t a spoiler, given the fact that the shot is front and center on a new poster.

interstellar game app

Paramount Pictures has released an app to promote Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar:

The app takes players on a journey through solar systems designed by players, featuring realistic physics conceptualized by Kip Thorne, the film’s scientific advisor and noted theoretical physicist. Players create their own unique solar system with planets, moons, asteroids and more, and travel through other player-created systems in the Endurance, the ship from the film. See how far you can pilot the Endurance without running out of fuel or losing time relative to Earth. Sling-shot through solar systems using real-world physics and gravitational forces. Use wormholes to jump to new systems and survive the ultimate challenge of traveling past a black hole.

Sounds cool right? Find out more about the new Interstellar game app, after the jump.

As a writer, Alex Garland has been behind some of our favorite sci-fi films of the past several years including Sunshine, Never Let Me Go, and Dredd. But it’s only now, with Ex Machina, that he’s trying to make one as a director.

He’s already got a great cast assembled for the project, including Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, and Alicia Vikander. Now a trippy new image of Vikander as a half-formed android has arrived to give us a better idea of what exactly Garland has in mind. Get an eyeful at new Ex Machina images after the jump.

kate mara the martian

The Martian was originally an e-book by Andy Weir, then it became a screenplay by Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) and now that script is the basis for a film directed by Ridley Scott. The concept is a perfect elevator pitch: an astronaut stranded on Mars must survive after a dust storm forces his crew to evacuate, thinking him dead. Matt Damon plays the main astronaut, but this isn’t quite a one-man show. The early presence of the rest of the crew, along with flashbacks and other narrative devices offer roles for many other actors. Now Kate Mara (House of Cards) has been offered a role, and Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire) is in final talks for a part. Read More »
