first day of new Star Wars shooting

The only thing some Star Wars fans want more than Episode VII is for Fox and/or Disney to re-release the original Star Wars trilogy in its pre-Special Edition form. Rumors have come and gone about Disney planning just such a release, and each time they’ve been hampered by logic and lack of evidence. Fox has distribution for the original Star Wars, for one, and holds distribution rights to the other 2/3 of the original trilogy through 2020. Could Fox work with Disney on a re-release? Yes. Will they? That’s a very different question. And then you’ve got to factor in the slim chance of the pre-Special Edition versions being officially given new life.

But still, a new Italian ad for Disney’s digital portal service is bringing the rumor back up again. Is there any more reason to believe it now than there was the last time this concept cropped up? Read More »

LOL: ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Honest Trailer

Transformers 4

The Screen Junkies team isn’t always mean. When they’re genuinely impressed by a movie, they’re honest enough to say so. But if I’m being honest, it’s more fun to watch them rip a deserving target to shreds. And the Transformers: Age of Extinction Honest Trailer is truly a delight to behold.

The video tears into all the obnoxious, nonsensical, and downright stupid aspects of the Michael Bay-directed extravaganza, and even delves into some eye-rolling errors you might have missed. Hit the jump to watch the Transformers Age of Extinction Honest Trailer.

the stand split

Warner Bros. has worked on a new version of The Stand for a few years, using Stephen King‘s post-apocalyptic novel as a basis for work by a few different creative teams. Most recently Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars), a lifelong fan of King’s work, came on board to write and direct a single-film adaptation of the novel. A single film — even a three-hour R-rated one — seems insufficient to properly adapt the novel which felt heavily condensed when done as a 360-minute mini-series for television. Now King himself suggests that we could see The Stand split into more than one film, though he’s cautious about saying too much.  Read More »

William Shatner Star Trek

After some initial denials, William Shatner confirmed last week he’d been contacted about Star Trek 3. So now the question is what exactly he’ll be doing in the movie, and a new report claims to have some of the juicy details.

Meanwhile, Leonard Nimoy, who’s rumored to appear alongside Shatner in the next film, has finally issued a response. Or maybe we should cal it a non-response, since it neither confirms nor denies anything.

Hit the jump to for William Shatner Star Trek 3 cameo details. Read More »

Ewan McGregor Star Wars obi wan kenobi stand alone film

UPDATE 10/6/14: A few weeks back, we ran the below story about a possible Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars spin-off being in the works. Now, that rumor has expanded to not only give an idea of what the story could be, it might even be more than one movie. The update is after the jump.

As little as we know about Star Wars Episode VII, we know even less about the Star Wars stand-alone films. We know Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank and directing the first two. We’ve heard they may be origin stories and rumors have run rampant of all the various characters that might be featured. Han Solo and Boba Fett are two of the best bets, but Yoda has been mentioned too, possibly a side character in Episode VII and now another name has entered the mix. A new rumor has hit that Lucasfilm is developing an Obi Wan Kenobi stand alone film. Out of all of those rumors, this is the one that makes the most sense. Read More »
