Everything in the Star Wars universe after Return of the Jedi is now a mystery. With the canon reset and stories from the Expanded Universe now set as “Legends,” we have no idea how the universe reacted to the fall of Darth Vader and the Emperor. The trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens have given very vague hints; now more pieces to the puzzle have been revealed thanks to Star Wars Uprising.
That’s the title of a new mobile game that will launch this Fall, which takes place very soon after the destruction of the Death Star. Players can choose various allegiances and go on adventures in a world where most of the galaxy has been rocked by the success of the Rebel Alliance.
Below, see images from Star Wars Uprising, read more about it and watch a trailer which has a fascinating Star Wars narrative. Read More »

The first The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 poster hinted at a brutal end for the villainous President Snow. But Katniss and the rebels still have a lot more work to do before they can deliver that final blow.
In the first image from the film Katniss and a few of her trusted comrades are armed and suited for battle. And as for when we’ll get to see even more of the highly anticipated sequel, it seems we’ve got a little something coming our way next week.

I’m always fascinated with the stories of movies that never were (like Darren Aronofsky’s vision of Batman). So much work in Hollywood never makes it to the big screen. From pitches to development, to years of scripts, casting, and even screen tests, films have a long road before cameras begin to roll. And we only occasionally see remnants of these unmade productions.
Most common are abandoned scripts which have leaked online over the years (like Frank Darabont‘s draft of Indiana Jones 4). Sometimes we get costume tests and concept art, like has happened with Tim Burton‘s Superman Lives. But other times we get a glimpse into the pitching process, be it a video like Kevin Tancharoen’s ‘The Hunger Games’ Pitch Trailer or concept art for an idea that never made it into development. And sometimes a filmmaker posts abandoned concept art and it sparks the fire and a movie is reborn (as is with Neill Blomkamp’s Alien film).
Splice/Cube/Hannibal director Vincenzo Natali has been posting some of the early concept art and pitch work that was created for some of his unmade movies, including Neuromancer, Stephen King’s It, Swamp Thing and Predator. Take a look at the Vincenzo Natali Neuromancer It and Predator concept artwork after the jump.

Just this past week, we learned a documentary is in the works that will chronicle the abandoned attempt by director George Miller to adapt the DC Comics superhero team Justice League for the big screen. Now the team behind the documentary is getting some buzz started for the project by revealing art via Twitter.
What claims to be the official Twitter account for the documentary, tentatively titled Miller’s Justice League Mortal, has revealed three pieces of concept art created when the film was still developing several years ago. Two pieces feature Wonder Woman in action, while the other shows what Aquaman potentially could have looked like. Check out George Miller’s Justice League concept art after the jump. Read More »

Last year, we saw Matt Damon in astronaut mode in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (above). And now The Bourne Identity star is returning to space with The Martian, the adaptation of Andy Weir‘s novel of the same name. Alien director Ridley Scott is at the helm of the sci-fi drama which follows an astronaut (Damon) who was part of the first team to walk on Mars. But when a dust storm catches his crew off guard, he ends up left behind on the planet, with no way to signal his astronaut colleagues, or mission control back on Earth, that he’s still alive. I guess that’s what he gets for trying to leave Matthew McConaughey behind in Interstellar
Earlier this year we got an unconventional first look at the set of The Martian thanks to a Super Bowl bet that Damon made with author Andy Weir. (Find out more about that here.) But now we actually have an official first look photo from the film with Damon in full astronaut gear.
UPDATE: A couple more of The Martian first look photos have surfaced, and we’ve added them after the jump. Read More »
