Rogue One Trailer Shot - Jyn Erso Tunnel

We’ve covered quite extensively the many changes that were made to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story after reshoots took place last summer. We’ve chronicled the many shots that were featured in marketing that didn’t end up in the movie, and we’ve even heard from the editors about which sequences in the final cut came about as a result of reshoots. Now we have word straight from director Gareth Edwards as to why one of the more prominent shots from the first Rogue One trailer (Jyn Erso in an Imperial tunnel, seen above) didn’t make it into the movie at all. And you might be surprised to learn as to why it even existed to begin with.

Find out why the Rogue One trailer shot above didn’t make it into the movie. Read More »

Pacific Rim 2 Set Photo

Right now, Universal and Legendary Pictures have Pacific Rim: Uprising (a new title that was announced last month) in production, and that means set photos have been cropping up online every now and then. Due to copyrights, we can’t really post any of them for you to see, but that changes today thanks to an Instagram post.

The Pacific Rim 2 set photo in question appears to reveal Star Wars: The Force Awakens co-star John Boyega on set wearing the signature Jaeger pilot suit that we’ve previously seen worn by Charlie Hunnan, Rinko Kikuchi and Idris Elba. Though it appears the suit design has been changed up a bit.

Check out the Pacific Rim 2 set photo after the jump. Read More »

mute first look

We first heard about Duncan JonesMute back in 2009, shortly after he had finished blowing us all away with his stunning science fiction debut, Moon. Since then, Jones has helmed two other movies, the very good Source Code and the noble misfire Warcraft, but his Berlin-set sci-fi noir has always hovered in the margins of every news post. When was he finally going to get around to making this one?

Then things started to come together. Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, and Justin Theroux joined the film. Moon composer Clint Mansell hopped on board. And then shooting started, with Netflix signing on to release the film straight to their streaming service at some point in 2017. Now, the first images from the film have arrived as the final piece of evidence: yes, Mute is actually happening. Finally and for real.
