A few days ago, a special screening of 'Return of the Jedi' was held at Entertainment Weekly's CapeTown Film Festival and audiences found themselves treated to a special appearance by Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill. Over the course of two Q&As, the beloved actor spoke about his involvement in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and the 'Star Wars' franchise as a whole confirming some information we already unofficially knew and revealing a bit more about the new trilogy.
For some 'Star Trek' fans, it was a slap to the face when director J.J. Abrams stopped going where no man has gone before and decided to journey to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. How will they feel when they see Abrams discussing how great 'Star Wars' is with the chief engineer of the Enterprise, Montgomery "Scotty" Scott (aka Simon Pegg)?
The past week has seen no shortage of jokes concerning Martha Stewart joining Match.com, but there was no way SNL wasn't going to get in on this action. After all, what kind of comedy variety show would it be if it didn't let one of the cast members break out a Martha Stewart impression?
Everything we knew about the upcoming 'Jurassic Park 4' could fit in a thimble, but now director Colin Trevorrow has dropped a quietly huge piece of information about the film: it'll take place on Isla Nublar, the setting of the original 1993 'Jurassic Park.'
Director JJ Abrams is infamous for keeping details on his projects on the down low, so many people have already begun speculating what will go on with the production of 'Star Wars Episode 7.' If there's one thing we learned from watching the production of the prequel trilogy, it's that 'Star Wars' fans are as passionate as they are nosy and if there's one thing we've learned from 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' it's that Abrams plays things close to the vest. A recent interview with LucasFilm honcho Kathleen Kennedy shed some light on this whole situation.
Although last night's episode of SNL was filled with hit-and-miss sketches, one of the best moments was easily the strangest thing in the entire episode. The sketch imagines the Weather Channel creating its own soap opera and the results are about as strange (and often, as funny) as you'd imagine.
Marvel has released the first 'Iron Man 3' clip and to our surprise, it's not an action sequence or a big special effects moment. Rather, it's an intense, dialogue driven scene that's a platform for the real star of the show: Mr. Robert Downey, Jr. Watch it for yourself below.
You can't imagine two films more different than 'The Croods' and 'Olympus Has Fallen,' but right now the two of them sit on top of the box office chart, both temporarily linked by the fact that a bunch of people apparently wanted to see them this weekend. It's the first time in forever that two films have opened to over $30 million at the same time...but it wasn't golden for all of the new releases.
Saturday Night Live doesn't often tackle religion, but when it rains, it pours! You may have already seen the instantly viral 'Djesus Uncrossed,' but have you seen the fake advertisement for a service that assists Popes with their retirement plans? It manages to combine relevant comedy with a spot-on commercial parody, effectively killing two SNL birds with one stone. Check it out below.
When it was announced that 'Transformers' director Michael Bay was going to produce a reboot of the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' franchise, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth across the great expanse of the internet. Then there was the title change, removing "teenage" and "mutant" from the equation (at least on the surface). Then there was the script leak and the reveal that the Turtles were now aliens. Then there was the announcement of Jonathan Liebesman as director. To say that fans were unhappy would be an understatement -- things got so ugly that Bay had to personally address them on his blog.
But the film is still moving forward. In fact, it looks like it may start shooting in April.
'Taken' was the surprise hit of 2009, a January dump that inexplicably made nearly $150 million in the United States and transformed Liam Neeson into an instant action star. Three years later, 'Taken 2' has arrived in theaters on a primo release date and with an advertising campaign that probably cost more than the entire first movie. Well, it looks like the hype was worth it. The first film may have been a sleeper, but the second adventure of Liam Neeson's kidnap-prone family has opened like a true blockbuster.
