The Kathryn Bigelow-directed movie delves into the events surrounding the Algiers Motel, in which three black men and two white women were killed during a police raid, with nine other people brutally beaten. The Detroit final trailer offers to reveal “what really happened” during the 1967 Detroit race riots.

Pacific Rim Uprising teaser

Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 kaiju vs. robots movie Pacific Rim had a reported $190 million budget, but only earned $101 million at the domestic box office. Thankfully for fans of the film, it ended up making $411 million worldwide because international audiences ate it up, and after some intense number-crunching by the studio, a sequel was eventually given the green light.

Now, four years later, the first teaser trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising has arrived, and it features a quick appearance by star John Boyega. Check it out below.

Star Wars The Last Jedi

Over the weekend, Disney and Lucasfilm unveiled one of those beautiful behind the scenes sizzle reels for Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the D23 Expo. It wasn’t quite as exciting as a brand new trailer would have been, but that doesn’t mean the video wasn’t full of a bunch of new details for fans to examine frame by frame.

Below, we take a look at dozens of shots from The Last Jedi sizzle reel to see what we can figure out about the second part of the new Star Wars trilogy. While there are plenty of things we don’t entirely understand just yet, there is plenty of new footage here that does help us figure out how some parts of the story will unfold. So check out our The Last Jedi sizzle reel breakdown, and see what we figured out. Read More »

Detroit Trailer: John Boyega Gets Falsely Accused

“What happened at the motel?”

The newest trailer for Kathryn Bigelow’s anticipated drama Detroit reveals more of the story, which is based on true events that took place during the 1967 Detroit race riots. John Boyega‘s security guard, seemingly a passive, observing figure in the first trailer, takes the spotlight here, standing accused of a murder he did not commit by detectives hiding the actions of unhinged police officers.

John Boyega Hugs Adam Driver - Kylo Ren

In the world of acting, there are those stars who are only in character when the camera is rolling, and there are those who prefer to dig a little deeper and stay in character during the production, if not a bit longer. It sounds like Adam Driver belongs in the latter category, at least when it comes to playing the physically and emotionally scarred Star Wars villain Kylo Ren.

At the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren had to make the grim decision to kill his father Han Solo in order to stop the struggle in his mind that kept him from submitting to the dark side completely. Adam Driver has said that because of that, there may be more scars he’s dealing with than the one that now crosses his eye, and when he’s on set, he brings that emotional intensity to his performance.

This hasn’t gone unnoticed by fellow cast members John Boyega and Mark Hamill, and they each tried to get through that exterior in their own way during production on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Find out more below. Read More »

Luke's Lightsaber

A lightsaber is the weapon of a Jedi Knight, an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. Since the lightsaber of Anakin Skywalker that was handed down to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) was one of the driving forces of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this specific weapon has become more important than ever, especially for Rey (Daisy Ridley).

After the weapon called out to Rey and gave her a perplexing Force vision, she eventually came to wield it against Kylo Ren before returning it to its rightful owner. However, it sounds like the lightsaber may not exactly belong to Luke anymore, something that might be further explored in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

We’ll dive into that below, along with some interesting information about Luke Skywalker’s current lightsaber, the green one that he constructed sometime between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and the real reason why it wasn’t blue. Plus, for those wondering if Finn will ever wield a lightsaber again, John Boyega offers his own thoughts on the matter. Read More »

So let’s run through everything we learned, including new information on characters played by Laura Dern and Benicio del Toro, the location known as Canto Bight, and a surprising interaction between Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and General Leia (Carrie Fisher). Keep in mind that if you want to go into The Last Jedi completely blind, you probably shouldn’t read beyond this point. Read More »
