We love getting excited about movies. And part of that involves reading all the rumors and gossip behind the projects we’re looking forward to. We post about what we’re interested in. We have a lot of Star Wars posts on the site because some of us are very excited about the project and like speculating about the latest rumors and details.
We often post rumors and information that could be considered possible spoilers. We are very careful about giving readers proper spoiler warnings, leaving all the spoilerish details out of the headlines and below the jump.
We love movies and we don’t want to ruin them for anyone.
This may surprise some of you, but we don’t post everything — there is lot of information we avoid in our coverage because we don’t want to completely spoil a big reveal or twist. Of course, its sometimes difficult to know if a rumor or plot tidbit is a big reveal — we try to assess every piece of information individually as it comes up to the best of our abilities and through the context of the information we have at hand.
A massive amount of Star Wars Episode VII rumors have leaked this week, and we have and will continue to cover them (again, on a case by case basis). But one potentially huge spoiler was posted on the Star Wars fan blogs last night that we won’t touch.
I mention this because I want you to know its out there. I’ve already seen a bunch of sites pick it up and I suspect that many sites will pick up the information in the coming days.
I would urge other sites not to post this one. Don’t be a dick. Think about what you’re posting and if you think its worth posting, please consider how you present it — Be considerate to those who might not want to know this kind of information.
Some headlines could be too revealing, and you might even see some people talking about it on social media. Please count this as your spoiler warning. I’m not sure if this new bit of information is real, but if it is, it should be considered the biggest of possible spoilers.
I’m not spoilerphobic at all. I believe you will still enjoy a movie even if you know everything that is going to happen. I have watched Back to the Future hundreds of times and still enjoy it each time. You read the Lord of the Rings books and knew everything that was going to happen, but they’re still some of your favorite movies, right? To me, surprises are usually gimmicks. I believe if the enjoyment of a movie hinges solely on a surprise then the movie probably doesn’t have a good enough story. All of that said, this new rumor is a potentially huge spoiler, of the “end of the movie” kind, and I wish I didn’t know about this one.
You have been warned, so now you know to avoid it.
For those of you who want to read the latest rumors and speculation, I hope you can continue to consider /Film a safe site to do that without fear of encountering spoilers like this one.

A day without Star Wars rumors is like a day without sunshine. Earlier today, we ran a few of the latest and like any good virus, a bunch of others have sprouted up around them. The most interesting has to do with the the home of Daisy Ridley‘s character, referred to on set as Kira. Multiple sources confirm not only where she lives, what she lives inside, and it’s probably a good size spoiler.
The second has to do with the role played by Max Von Sydow. We know he’s cast in the movie, but we haven’t heard much about who he’s playing outside of speculation. A new report has an idea, and it’s not at all what anyone guessed. Read more about the latest Star Wars 7 rumors below. Read More »
When last we left the role of Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange, Joaquin Phoenix was in “final talks.” That was in late August, but Marvel has yet to make an official announcement about the casting. So we wait. Now, a new name is in the mix, reportedly contacted after Joaquin Phoenix wouldn’t make things final. That name is Ethan Hawke, the star most recently seen in Boyhood.
Hawke starred in director Scott Derrickson‘s 2012 hit, Sinister, so he has a relationship with the director. He also has that wise gravitas needed for the role. But is this real? We explore the Ethan Hawke Doctor Strange rumor after the jump. Read More »
Trying to figure out the plot to Star Wars Episode VII is like putting together a messed up puzzle. There’s no guide, people are forging pieces, and we don’t know what connects to what. Even pieces we think are correct could potentially be total crap. We won’t have a real idea until we learn the title and see some footage, both of which are likely several months away.
Still, the impossible construction of the secretive plot is fun and today two new rumors enter the mix. One details a potential early scene in the film and a second calls into question several plot points we’ve pretty much accepted as fact. Read both the new Star Wars 7 rumors below. Read More »
It looks like the Luigi’s Flying Tires ride in Disney California Adventure’s Cars Land might be very short lived. A new report claims that the ride will be closed in January with a quick turnaround to replace it with another Cars-themed attraction. What happened? Could this be the shortest lived ride in Disney history? Find out, after the jump.

If the pattern of Marvel’s last couple team-based movies holds, Avengers: Age of Ultron will likely be a gigantic affair, in terms of production scale, promotion, and (hopefully) reception. And with Avengers 3 known to be in the pipeline for a likely 2018 release, expectations will run high for that film to surpass everything Marvel has done before it. So could Marvel follow in the wake of other studios and split the final chapter of this set of Avengers stories into two parts? It’s unlikely, but below we’ll discuss a report that claims exactly such a plan is under consideration.
Along with the two-film rumor, there’s a slightly more credible report floating around, saying that the Age of Ultron trailer will arrive with Interstellar.

Looks like there might be more firings on the set of Star Wars Episode VII. Weeks after the site Indie Revolver posted some incredibly spoiler-filled images reportedly from the highly anticipated film, everyone heard J.J. Abrams let go of some people. Today, that site has released a few more images and while they aren’t as spoilerific as the ones from a few weeks ago, they do potentially ruin the look of some of the new Storm Troopers and maybe even one of the lightsaber action scenes.

Earlier this week we got word that Roberto Orci wanted William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy back on board for Star Trek 3. According to that report, the current version of the script calls for the two to appear in a scene together, for the first time since 1991′s Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
Naturally, all the talk got old-school Trek fans buzzing. However, all that excitement may be premature, because Orci and Shatner have now spoken up to clarify that nothing is set just yet. Hit the jump to read about the William Shatner Star Trek 3 rumors.
