Star Wars The Last Jedi Vanity Fair Cover

Since the official 40th anniversary of the original Star Wars is coming this week on May 25, it looks like we’re going to get some special sneak peeks at this year’s continuance of the sci-fi saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The first teaser trailer arrived during Star Wars Celebration in Orlando last month, but now fans are hungry for even more. They’ll get it this week, as Vanity Fair has announced they’ll have a batch of photos from the set of the movie arriving on Wednesday, May 24, just as they did for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

To tease the arrival of these photos, Vanity Fair has released four different Star Wars: The Last Jedi covers that provide new looks at Rey (Daisy Ridley), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), General Leia (Carrie Fisher), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Finn (John Boyega), General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and new character Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran).

game of thrones season 7 images

A few months ago, we heard that the dragons in Game of Thrones season 7 would be the size of 747 jet airliners. Now, a batch of images from the penultimate season of HBO’s flagship series have revealed the dragons and they don’t appear to be quite as big as 747s. However, they’re still big enough to stomp an entire army into red goo and burn their remains into a fine ash, so let’s not get too caught up on the little details.

This photo is one of several Game of Thrones season 7 images to arrive today and the others show off the other corners of Westeros: snow, scheming, and scowling. The usual.

Production is underway down in Australia on the first big screen adaptation of the DC Comics superhero Aquaman.

Why We're Killing Gunther header

I miss Taran Killam. Saturday Night Live has found itself in the spotlight because of the insane political climate we’re living in right now, but to me, the show has felt like it’s been missing something without his buoyant presence. While it seems like the comedian has disappeared off the face of the earth for moment, there’s good news: he’s been making his feature directorial debut on a film called Why We’re Killing Gunther, in which he co-stars with a little-known Austrian actor named Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The action-comedy doesn’t have distribution yet, but it’s being sold at Cannes right now and a first look image has been released. Grab your own handgun and join the standoff below.

The Greatest Showman photos

Hugh Jackman showed the world he was a true song and dance man when he hosted the Oscars back in 2009, and not long after that performance, 20th Century Fox gave the greenlight to the actor’s passion project: a biopic called The Greatest Showman about famous huckster and circus magnate P.T. Barnum. Commercial director Michael Gracey was hired to direct, but he had one suggestion for the project, which was originally pitched as a straightforward biopic: “I said, ‘If you’re going to call it The Greatest Showman, you should play to your strengths and we should make it a musical.’ That ridiculous remark cost me seven years of my life.”

It’s safe to say Jackman has been a little busy during that time, but the movie is finally set to come out later this year, and EW has given us our first look at it with a batch of new images. Check out the first The Greatest Showman photos below.

The Orville Trailer

Star Trek has been lampooned countless times, whether it’s by Saturday Night Live, Futurama or the outstanding Galaxy Quest. Now it’s getting an indirect kind of spoof, if you will, in the form of a new FOX TV series from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

The Orville is a new one-hour sci-fi comedy series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of the titular spaceship and its crew as they traverse the universe, dealing with the kind of workplace problems that come from having a crew composed of aliens and humans from different planets all aboard a single spaceship. FOX debuted The Orville trailer at their upfronts presentation today, and you can get a glimpse of the promising new show below. Read More »

Paul McCartney in Pirates of the Caribbean

We’ve known since last year that Pirates of the Caribbean was bringing another legendary rock star into the high seas franchise after having Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards play Jack Sparrow’s father previously. This time, it was the British imported band The Beatles having one of their members turned into a pirate, and now we get to see what he looks like.

Paul McCartney took to Twitter this weekend to reveal a first look at his character in the form of a character poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. If you were looking forward to Paul McCartney wearing eyeliner, you will not be disappointed.

Apostle synopsis

Director Gareth Evans earned a lifetime of support from me with his impressive martial arts film Merantau and his astounding work on The Raid movies, so it’s safe to say I’m very much looking forward to seeing what he does with his newest film, Apostle. The fact that he’s cast Dan Stevens (Legion) in the lead role and has people like Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex) and Lucy Boynton (Sing Street) in supporting parts is just icing on the cake.

This morning, Evans released the first official image from the movie – which has a bit of a There Will Be Blood vibe to it – along with the official synopsis, both of which you can find below.

inhumans tv series

Marvel comic book readers have spent the past few years becoming familiar with the Inhumans whether they wanted to or not as the publisher has steadily pushed them to the forefront of their superhero universe. Now, they’re looking to bring this odd superhero team to a wider audience with an ambitious television series, which will premiere in IMAX theaters later this year before the rest of the season airs on ABC.

Our first look at the central cast of Inhumans has been revealed and while they are recognizable enough, these characters have certainly undergone a significant redesign on their way to the screen.
