But Williams is still composing the Star Wars: The Force Awakens score, and now he’s planning to record it in Los Angeles, making it the first Star Wars score to be recorded in the United States.

Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie dropped a little present for us on Sunday morning. They revealed the first Mission Impossible 5 trailer, along with a poster and title. That title: Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. And, actually, it’s not even the full trailer. It’s a minute-long tease for the full trailer which will hit on Monday, March 23. Still, it’s the best trailer tease you’ve ever seen. None of this 20 seconds and no footage crap.
Check out the Mission Impossible 5 trailer below. Read More »
Furious 7, directed by James Wan, opens in a couple weeks, and Universal has dropped a new clip. We saw the film last weekend at SXSW, and didn’t love it, but can’t argue with the fact that it gives some fans what they want, and acts as a respectful send-off to the late Paul Walker.
But this clip has nothing to do with the latter, and everything to do with the former. It shows off an encounter between Jason Statham, playing the film’s big bad, and The Rock, playing the film’s sweatiest law-enforcement machine. Read More »

Independence Day 2 has added an unlikely source of star power. French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg is boarding the Roland Emmerich-directed sequel, joining Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, and Jessie Usher.
A big-budget sci-fi adventure is an unusual move for Gainsbourg, recently best known for being Lars von Trier’s muse. But maybe those von Trier movies are actually the perfect preparation for Independence Day 2. After the crap she’s been through in Antichrist, Melancholia, and Nymphomaniac, killer aliens should be a piece of cake. Read More »
UPDATE: We spoke to Isaac and he clarified the intentions of his quote. Original story follows.
If J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm were a bit more open about who and what the characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens were, what follows might not be news. But right now, even though we know Oscar Isaac plays a character named Poe Dameron, we don’t know who that is. We’ve heard some rumors, and those rumors are that he’s very important to the sequel trilogy; the Han Solo of the younger generation. But those are just rumors. The fact of the matter is we don’t know who or what is important to this trilogy of films.
In a new interview, Isaac discussed Rian Johnson‘s Star Wars Episode VIII. His quote, albeit brief, could be construed as a spoiler for anyone avoiding info on who or what makes it to the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Read the Poe Dameron Episode 8 quote below, but proceed with caution.

Does Back to the Future predict 9/11? Was the 1985 film a warning about our future? Of course not. But thats the fun of this well-edited documentary short.
Last night I was at Cinefamily’s monthly YouTube Party, an event where a theater full of people gather together to take a collective trip down the rabbit hole of YouTube’s funny and weird videos with the help of the hosts and live suggestions from the audience. It’s a lot of fun, and they also have a buffet of junk food and cheap beer which makes the $5 ticket price oh so attractive.
One of the videos played at the March edition of the event was a video titled “BACK TO THE FUTURE 9-11 prediction !!! [Illuminati Conspiracy]”. Its not a new video but since the audience at the event seemed to love it so much, I thought it was worth sharing here. Watch the Back to the Future 9/11 prediction video embedded after the jump.
