Dying of the Light protest

Yesterday we saw the trailer for Dying of the Light, the new film directed by Paul Schrader from his own script, with Nicolas Cage and Anton Yelchin starring as intelligence agents. But there’s some troubled backstory to the movie, and it isn’t really Schrader’s film now. He was locked out of the edit as the producers took over final cut and added their own score. Nicolas Winding Refn, who is on the film as exec producer, called the process “artistic disrespect.” Now the creators have lodged a creative Dying of the Light protest.

Schrader can’t talk about it because of the non-disparagement clause in his contract. So he, Refn, and his stars have posed wearing shirts bearing the text of that contract. Those images accompany a statement from the director, released today.  Read More »

new Unbroken trailer

Angelina Jolie takes her second turn as director with Unbroken, which adapts the book by Laura Hillenbrand to tell the story of Olympic competitor and WWII hero Louis Zamperini (Jack O’Connell). The film’s first trailer focused quite a bit on Zamperini’s upbringing, but this new Unbroken trailer focuses primarily on the war and its aftermath, during which Zamperini and two other Air Force crewmen survived the crash of their plane, only to be picked up by the Japanese Navy.

Transferred through a set of Japanese POW camps, Zamperini and Russel Allen Phillips were held captive from 1943 until the end of the war in 1945, during which time they experienced horrific treatment, some of which is seen briefly in this trailer. Read More »

First Look: Darth Vader In ‘Star Wars Rebels’

Darth Vader Rebels

When the second episode of Star Wars Rebels co-starred C-3PO and R2-D2, you realized they weren’t shying away from recognizable characters. The story of Kanan, Ezra and the rest of the Rebels will primarily take place parallel to anything going on with Obi-Wan Kenobi, the young Skywalkers and more but the Empire is the Empire. And if the Rebels are fighting against it, they’re really fighting against two people: The Emperor and Darth Vader.

But, as we know from the original trilogy, The Emperor is mostly behind the scenes. Vader is his who, at the time of Rebels, is “hunting down and destroying the Jedi.” He’s the boss of The Inquisitor, the primary villain in the series so when Rebels goes to the masses on October 26, Darth Vader will make a brief cameo.

But you already knew that. Below, see what Star Wars Rebels Darth Vader is going to look like. Read More »
