Rebel fighter Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) is the intelligence officer in the Alliance who tries to keep Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s bounty hunters and rebels together. During the film’s panel at the ongoing Star Wars Celebration, Luna didn’t make Andor sound very well-liked, but he did say the character has one friend he can trust. That friend is K-2SO, a droid played by Alan Tudyk.
Below, learn more about the droid, whom Tudyk compares to “old people.”

Before he shot off to that galaxy far, far away, Diego Luna spent some time down here on Earth directing his latest picture. Mr. Pig stars Danny Glover as Ambrose, an elderly pig farmer whose business is falling apart. His last remaining pig is Howie, whom he intends to sell to the son of a a family friend. So Ambrose and Howie set out on a little road trip, but it’s not long before things start going south.
Maya Rudolph plays Ambrose’s daughter Eunice, who finds herself in the uncomfortable position of having to be there for a father who was never there for her. Mr. Pig debuted at Sundance earlier this year and has been making the festival rounds ever since. Watch the first Mr. Pig trailer below. Read More »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been flying under the radar, waiting for everyone to fully exhaust themselves on Star Wars: The Force Awakens before revealing itself. And oh boy, has it revealed itself. The first trailer is here and it’s a doozy, filled with all kinds of incredible imagery, promising characters, and, for the lack of a more elegant phrase, really cool stuff. And you know what that means – it’s time for a frame-by-frame trailer breakdown.
One word of warning: this article will dive into various internet rumors that have circulated this project for the past year. Some may be true. Some may not. I recommend bringing a pinch of salt along for this particular journey. If you want to know nothing about the film, you should probably turn around now.

Is there anyone out there demanding a Flatliners remake? Probably not. The original 1990 film is fine, a perfectly adequate supernatural thriller that goes down easy enough and then vanishes from the brain without leaving a last impression. In a weird way, this actually makes it the ideal movie for the remake treatment – there is no reason to film new versions of beloved, classic movies when there are plenty of great concepts attached to forgettable movies floating around, awaiting resurrection.
The last we heard from Flatliners, the delightful Ellen Page was attached to lead the film. Now, she has her first co-star in the form of Diego Luna, the talented Mexican actor known for his work in films like Milk, Elysium, The Terminal, and Y Tu Mamá También. Oh yeah, he’s also in some upcoming movie called Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

When talking about A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night last year, I said that director Ana Lily Amirpour is someone we’re excited to watch going forward. And we’re evidently not the only ones with confidence in her work. Her next film, The Bad Batch, is backed by Megan Ellison and Annapurna Productions, which immediately puts Amirpour in great company. The film already had Jason Momoa as a core member of the cast. And now The Bad Batch cast can announced a bunch of new names, including Jim Carrey and Keanu Reeves. Read More »
