The In the Heights movie cast continues to grow, as Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu sets out to bring Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s other Broadway musical to the big screen. Jimmy Smits, Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Stephanie Beatriz, and several other actors have been added in the past few days. Hamilton veteran Anthony Ramos stars in the movie, which is based on Miranda’s Tony Award-winning musical.

In the 18 days that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was in theaters in 2016, the movie rounded up enough box office dollars to be the second highest grossing movie of the year. That’s most impressive, even if it’s not entirely unexpected from a Star Wars movie, and with more money pouring in everyday, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we’re still learning new things about the movie whose production has been under a microscope ever since extensive reshoots were done last summer.
Following recent details on which scenes were reshoots, and how a unique pre-production process created a cut of Rogue One composed of footage from other movies, a whole slew of new photos from the set have been revealed, showing off more of the deleted scenes that fans like us are so desperate to know about. There’s one shot in particular that makes me wonder just what the scene in question would have entailed.
Check out the Rogue One deleted scene images and much more after the jump. Read More »

Even though Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will focus on an entirely new crew of characters as they attempt to steal the plans to the first Death Star, there will still be some familiar characters that Star Wars fans will have no problem recognizing. We already know that Darth Vader is making a return in the spin-off that takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, and now we have confirmation of another character we’ve seen on the big screen before returning as well. But this one comes from the prequel trilogy.

Last month, HBO cancelled Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese’s Vinyl after already having renewed it for a second season. But if you’re mourning the loss of your window into the 1970s New York music scene, fear not — Baz Luhrmann‘s The Get Down is arriving in just a few weeks. Though to be fair, this 1970s New York-set music drama looks pretty damn different from that other 1970s New York-set music drama.
The Get Down unfolds at the dawn of punk, hip-hop, and disco, following the “young, scrappy, and hungry” types at the forefront of those movements. The cast is loaded with intriguing up-and-comers like Justice Smith, Herizen Guardiola, Shameik Moore, and Skylan Brooks, most of whom are trying to make it in music one way or another. Watch the first The Get Down trailer after the jump, but be warned it may make you really frustrated that you can’t watch the show right freakin’ now. Read More »

Get the details on who Smits will be playing in the 24 Legacy cast below, along with everything we know about the series so far. Read More »

Rick Famuyiwa’s Dope had a lot going for it, but one of the very best things it did was introduce the world to Shameik Moore. The relative unknown immediately won us over with his charming, moving performance, and had us eager to find out just what he was going to do next.
As of today, we have our answer. Moore is part of the sprawling ensemble cast of Baz Luhrmann‘s new Netflix drama The Get Down, about the rise of hip-hop, punk, and disco in 1970s New York. Which, yes, sounds a lot like a certain other drama premiering on HBO next month — but the perspective couldn’t be more different, and in any case we live in an age where streaming and DVR allow us to watch as many ’70s music dramas as the industry is willing to churn out. The Get Down looks like a must-watch no matter what other shows exist out there. Watch The Get Down trailer after the jump. Read More »

As we anxiously wait to hear who’ll get to helm the next Star Wars, it seems there’s at least one name we can definitively rule out. Man of Steel helmer Zack Snyder says that he, for one, doesn’t want the coveted gig. The (understandable) reason? It’s just a lot to take on.
“I don’t think I’d be interested in [directing it],” he said in an interview with the LAT. “I’m a huge Star Wars fanatic. I just think doing seven, eight, and nine is just a slippery slope. It’s a whole other mythological experiment I’m excited to see, but it’s a lot of effort.”
After the jump, Jimmy Smits might be open to returning, while Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light & Magic saves Disney a ton of money.
