The Star Wars universe is not an easy place to live. A galaxy far, far away tends to be embroiled in massive conflicts. Even when one major enemy is defeated, another soon takes it place.The Separatists are defeated and the Clone Wars end, only for the tyrannical Galactic Empire to form in the wake of victory. The Empire is destroyed, only for the First Order to rise from the Empire's ashes. Oftentimes the only thing that can make such life bearable is romance.Through the years Star Wars has told tales of many romantic couples. These tales have been spun not only in the movies, but also through television shows, books, comics, and video games.Some of these couples are the beating hearts of the galaxy's best stories. Others had potential that fizzled out, and a select few were misguided from the start.This list will only look at couples that have actually happened or officially begun. That means that disappointing as it may be, popular fan ships that haven't actually happened yet, such as Finn and Poe Dameron (Stormpilot) or Rey and Kylo Ren (Reylo), are not included here. Reylo came incredibly close to officially happening in The Last Jedi--and may very well happen in Episode IX--but as of now is not eligible for the list.Whether a romantic couple is canon or now relegated to Star Wars Legends, all have played significant roles in either enhancing or hurting the overall universe. As such, both canon and Legends couples will be explored here.With love in the air, it's time to unveil the 8 Couples That Hurt Star Wars (And 12 That Saved Them). The post appeared first on
Hank Pym's new laboratory in Peyton Reed's is comprised of erector sets, car parts, and various other materials. In the upcoming sequel, Michael Douglas' character uses the Pym Particles to shrink his new building (and lab) down to the size of a luggage bag - but that's not all that's new.Pym's new lab is a representation of how different he is compared to other scientists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The lab has a mixture of standard building materials and support beams that resemble parts of an erector set, stereo knobs, and bread bag clips, all of which offer a glimpse into Pym's innovative mind, particularly how he's able to repurpose just about anything to meet his needs on the fly.Related: During the Ant-Man and The Wasp set visit, Screen Rant had the chance to speak with production designer Shepherd Frankel, who contrasted Hank Pym's way of doing things with that of Tony Stark, saying, "Hank Pym does not need Stark Industries science to do his work. He's an engineer. He's a physicist. You give him a box of stuff and he can kind of collude things together, assemble things together, 'cause he is constantly trying to figure out how to do what he needs to do."These elements of Pym's character were at the forefront of the designers' minds as he and the rest of the production team constructed Hank Pym's new lab. In doing so, the designers created an unpolished vision for the lab, something that is constantly being improved upon and reconstructed: "...you see a lot of exposed ideas and his brain, his journal is in three dimensional form on tables - You can feel like it's being built as he goes."Frankel goes on to describe a space meant to be a treat for the audience. Beyond the "pretty standardized" control room, the scale undulates from oversized objects like erector set-inspired support beams and "things like springs that you have in your car or motorcycle in the corners that become the reinforcement engineering that a box that is shrunken down and being taken around." With highly reflective surfaces, undersized objects (normally large objects shrunk down to be worked on), strategically positioned on tabletops, and a low ceiling, the intent of the new lab is to disorient. Frankel's purpose with all this was to create a space that makes the visitor begin to question themselves, "What size am I? Am I big or am I small?" And for him, that's part of the fun, especially since this is a movie about people who can shrink in size.In contrast to the first movie, in which they refrained from doing anything oversized, this time around they chose to go big and couple it with the macro photography, which was quite successful in the first film, to create, "a visual delight and visual journey for the audience.” In the end, the production design team constructed an incredible space and a place that embodies the character of Hank Pym, and one in which the cast and audiences can fully immerse themselves.More: The post appeared first on
Richard Greenberg - noted opening title designer and visual effects producer for classics like and - has died at the age of 71. It's a sad day for Hollywood, as the man responsible for helping to create some of the most iconic opening credits sequences in history has passed on, according to A specific cause of death for Greenberg has yet to be reported, but he's been confirmed to have died on June 16, in New York City.Greenberg broke into the movie business thanks to an award-winning short film he made entitled Stop, which caught the attention of Pablo Ferro, title designer for such varied hits as Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, Beetlejuice, and Philadelphia. In 1977, Greenberg teamed up with his brother Robert to create the company R/Greenberg Associates, which worked on opening titles and/or visual effects for modern classics like Die Hard, Ghostbusters, Goodfellas, and the latter of which scored Greenberg an Oscar nomination.During that time, he also personally designed the iconic opening titles for Richard Donner's Superman and Ridley Scott's Alien, including the instantly recognizable - and still used - Alien franchise font. In 1991, Greenberg ventured out to Los Angeles, where he formed a new company with Bruce Schluter called simply Greenberg/Schluter. Robert Greenberg would stay on as head of R/Greenberg Associates, a position he occupies to this day. Greenberg/Schluter would go on to design the opening credits sequences for such major moves as the Lethal Weapon sequels, Independence Day, and While Richard Greenberg is best known for his work with opening titles and visual effects, he also tried directing a few times. In 1989, Greenberg helmed the dark comedy Little Monsters, starring The Wonder Years' Fred Savage as Brian, an 11-year-old boy who learns of a secret interconnected world In recent years, some have pointed out the plot similarities between Little Monsters - which has amassed a small but loyal cult fanbase in the decades since its release - and Pixar's although there is no direct evidence one film influenced the other.Greenberg also directed the 1990 episode called "The Sacrifice," starring Kevin Kilner and Kim Delaney as lovers who plot to murder Delaney's rich husband. They succeed, but things are complicated when noted genre villain Michael Ironside shows up claiming he has evidence of their crime. The episode aired as part of season 2, and is fairly well regarded by fans.Greenberg is survived by three children, two sons and a daughter. His work truly made a mark on Hollywood, and will continue to be remembered by fans for decades to come.Rest in Peace Richard Greenberg: 1947 - 2018Source: The post appeared first on
Comic fans and movie critics alike went absolutely mad over Batman v Superman, but if you think that's becoming a more and more common phenomenon... the movie's cinematographer agrees. At the time Zack Snyder's stylish sequel divided fans, with most critics citing it as the lowest point yet for the heroes, and the genre. But since then, tensions and reviews have only gotten more heated.More recently, fans made , proving beloved franchises are just as likely to turn critics against them as the fans, or earn praise just as easily. It's a strange time to be a fan of geek blockbuster - so strange, even has given up trying to understand reviewers at all.RELATED: Speaking in an interview with , the insights offered into Fong's work on Batman v Superman inevitably led to a discussion of the public reception. Not in terms of the box office success - bringing in $870 million - but the divisive response from fans, as well as a critical lambasting. While Fong says that Snyder got the worst of the response, hearing some give his own work and crew a pass turned out to be the "weirdest" reaction:Everyone has their opinion. Does everyone have to love the movie? Of course not... visually I feel like me and my crew killed it, so when you hear things about it, it kind of hurts. To be honest the weirdest thing... I've never really talked about this. But the weirdest thing, and this has happened a lot, I'll have a stranger come up and say, 'Batman v Superman really sucked... but don't worry, what you did was great. It looked really good. It wasn't your fault.'And I listened to that for a while and was like, 'Okay, well thanks.' But then the more I thought about it I thought I'm not going to accept that. Because everyone's working towards a common goal, right? And Zack's my brother, I'm not gonna go 'YEAH!' you know, 'HE did a horrible job... but I didn't! I just did MY job! That's right!' I don't accept that. If you make a baby together you're proud of that baby. You can't divide that up.It's probably worth considering the weighting of a movie review when a film is 'rotten,' but the crew responsible for how the movie looks is praised - since film is a visual medium, first and foremost. But regardless of where one lands on the movie, or Man of Steel or even Justice League (neither of which Fong worked on, despite the occasional troll on social media), the resulting fan base confirms Snyder's and Fong's work was appreciated.And as we've noted before, one online fan contest shows how . Fans who, from their perspective, embrace the film for many of the ways it's distinct from the rest of a largely formulaic 'superhero' genre. A formula that - at their own peril, critically speaking. Fong has nothing but love for Snyder and fans of his own work, but admits that when it comes to understanding critical reception... he's at a loss. These days, not just for his own films:I'm not going to pretend I understand anymore [Laughs]. Because I don't. You know, [critics] see a film... The films I like, no one seems to like, and the films I don't like, everyone likes. So there's a disconnect for me. I can't even pretend to understand how it all works.More movie fans should take his lead, and accept that it's not a critic's job to tell audiences what they love or hate. Let us know if you share Fong's opinion of the impossible-to-rationalize movie review scene in today's cinema landscape, and be sure to check out .MORE: Source: The post appeared first on

Jane Fonda will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival, it was announced today by Moore, the festival’s founder and president.
Billy Dee Williams son, Cory Dee Williams, has weighed in on the Lando appearance in Star Wars 9.
While discussing and the future of the franchise, Simon Pegg reveals that the series isn't slowing down and indicates that Mission: Impossible 7 is a possibility.In this summer's Mission: Impossible sequel, Pegg will be reprising his role as Benjamin "Benji" Dunn, after first making his appearance in the third movie.Fallout follows IMF agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) as him and his team face serious consequences after a mission goes wrong. Accompanied by , including Dunn and Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames), as well as former MI6 agent Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) and IMF secretary Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin), Hunt is forced into a race against time. Fallout also stars Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, Sean Harris, and Michelle Monaghan, with director Christopher McQuarrie being the first director in the series to helm more than one Mission: Impossible movie (the previous being his first). And even though the series has reached its sixth installment with Fallout, Pegg opened up about the future of the series, as well as the likelihood of a seventh movie.Related: In an interview with, Pegg, who has been part of the Mission: Impossible family for 12 years so far, revealed various tidbits of information regarding Fallout's overall tone, as well as the future of theseries. He explained that - especially compared to previous installments - Fallout will be significantly darker than other entries in the series, adding that he'll also be playing a much more active role with his character this time around. Then, when asked about a possible seventh movie, Pegg pointed out that the franchise "shows no signs of slowing down," adding, "I imagine that at some we'll be doing mad things again, so, yeah... never say never."Even though Fallout will mark the first time the franchise has used the same director twice, Pegg noted that McQuarrie may as well have channeled a completely different directing style than what he brought to Rogue Nation. He explained that McQuarrie was "at pains to make it feel different," adding that, "the look of it is different; the lighting, production design - it's gonna feel like another, different movie."While one of the most unique elements associated with the Mission: Impossible series was the fact that it incorporated different directors for every installment, doubling down on McQuarrie could turn out to be a positive move in the end given how successful - both critically and commercially - the last movie was. Plus, having formed a strong relationship with Cruise (he also directed Cruise in the first adaptation), their comfortability and familiarity with each other could prove to create a more fluid filmmaking experience, potentially resulting in a more satisfying final product. Furthermore, as long as Cruise continues to be able to perform all the necessary stunts, then there's no real reason to end the Mission: Impossible franchise just yet.More: Source: The post appeared first on
Australian director Cate Shortland is reportedly the top contender to take the helm of Marvel's long-awaited Black Widow movie.
Jamie Bell is reportedly in talks to play a key role opposite Taron Egerton in the Elton John fantasy musical, . Beginning with his breakthrough role as a ballet prodigy from a working class British family in the acclaimed 2000 drama Billy Elliot, Bell has become has mainstay on the big screen over the past 18 years, amassing an impressive acting resume including the Peter Jackson films King Kong and The Adventures of Tintin, as well as the Doug Liman-helmed sci-fi hit , not to mention the indie sensation Snowpiercer.Now, on the heels of latest big screen turn in the critically acclaimed drama, Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool, Bell is about to tackle the role of the legendary lyricist who helped legendary artist Elton John rise to rock music stardom in the 1970s, and who remains the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer's chief song collaborator to this day.Related: According to , Bell is in talks to play Bernie Taupin in the musical biopic Rocketman. In addition to chronicling John's life as a student at the Royal Academy of Music, his hit-making years in the 1970 and '80s and his recovery from drug and alcohol addiction in the 1990s, the film will also reportedly focus on John's and Taupin's enduring songwriting partnership. Together John and Taupin have created such classic hits as "Your Song," "Bennie and the Jets," "Goodbye Yellowbrick Road," "Someone Saved My Life Tonight," "I'm Still Standing," and of course, "Rocketman."In some ways it shouldn't come as a huge surprise that Bell was cast as Taupin in Rocketman, given that the film's script is being penned by Billy Elliot screenwriter Lee Hall. Considering that John and Hall worked together on the stage musical version of Billy Elliot, Hall no doubt brought some clout with him to Rocketman, and it's not completely out of line to guess the writer had some input into the decision by (who recently took over directing ) to cast Bell.No matter how the filmmakers arrived at the casting decision, it's great to see someone of Bell's caliber take on the pivotal role of Taupin in Rocketman. A rare, behind-the-scenes figure who has rightfully attracted just as much attention as his famous musical counterpart, Taupin deserves his due on the big screen, and Bell possesses the charisma to make the role of the lyricist a memorable one. The bonus for both Egerton and Bell is that, since John is one of the producers of the film, he'll likely be available to give tips on the performances. And, hopefully, the piano man will invite his longtime writing partner along for some set visits to effectively help write a recreation of their storied history together.More: Source: The post appeared first on
has received the treatment, but with a 1990s twist in some newly released fan-art. Directed by the partnership of Half Nelson's Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the blockbuster starring Brie Larson in the title role isn't due to hit screens until 2019. But that hasn't stopped some fans from already humorously envisioning how that might look.It's no secret that Captain Marvel will be set in the early-'90s, which was even . Featuring some earlier iterations of such established characters as Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), and Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), the film is set to offer a glimpse at a never-before-seen time-period within the MCU, particularly when Carol Danvers finds herself at the center of an intergalactic conflict between two alien races. It's a plot that could potentially be adapted from the Secret Invasion story from the comics. And now, fans are already starting to imagine what the movie's '90s-themed promotional material would look like.Related: Reddit user, , edited a promotional to demonstrate what else Captain Marvel (and audiences) could be confronted with over the course of her adventure, featuring such nostalgia-bait as Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Nirvana performing at MTV Unplugged, Friends, and even Tamagotchis. Check it out below.Pop culture references are nothing new to the MCU, with Tony Stark offering everyone a nickname, from Thor's Point Break to Hawkeye's Legolas; even Steve Rogers manages to understand some of them. Most notably, the references come into play in , when the titular captain maintained a helpful list of movies, music, and television shows he needed to catch-up on.The parallels between Captain Marvel and Captain America will undoubtedly not end there, especially with the former rumored to be assuming a more of . Comparisons between Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman are equally inevitable, since both films portray strong, female leads outside of the established era of the wider franchises as they deal with otherworldly threats. It's a fact that will no doubt fuel further debate and arguments between those who insist on pitting Marvel and DC against each other.With wildly differing tones, however, both movies and heroines are sure to be distinct. And, though there is nothing to suggest that Captain Marvel will be as similarly displaced in time as Steve Rogers, it's hard to imagine that the filmmakers will pass on such an obvious opportunity to for all its comedically and nostalgically worth.More: Source: The post appeared first on

With its varied characters and deep plotlines, the franchise has remained a favorite since its launch by the creative mind of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby back in 1963.

The Devil's Rejects and House of 1000 Corpses sequel has wrapped filming and arrives next year.
Not unlike the game's committed fanbase, even the developers behind want a sequel to the video game. That said, the likelihood of a sequel remains to be seen. Released in 2010 by Remedy Entertainment, Alan Wake is a psychological action-adventure video game based around the title character's attempt to solve his wife's murder.With a unique gaming and narrative structure that divides the plot into six different episodes, Alan Wake thrusts Alan into a mystery that utilizes darkness, light, and a survival horror approach that incorporates a blend of reality and events stemming from his latest novel that seemingly come to life. Though there has been talk of a sequel to the game (with the developers going so far as to use the foundation of a scrapped sequel for another one of their games, , which itself ), nothing official has been set in motion. Now, the developers have said that they want a sequel to Alan Wake just as eagerly as the fans.Related: During the PlayStation showcase at E3 2018, spoke with Remedy Entertainment's Mikael Kasurinen about the company's latest game, , a supernatural third-person action-adventure. The conversation eventually turned to past games from Remedy, leading to a discussion about a potential Alan Wake sequel. Kasurinen explained that, even though Remedy owns the rights to Alan Wake and is excited about the prospect of a sequel, he can't confirm or deny any details regarding the series' future. He said:“So, we own the Alan Wake IP, yes. I just want to say right away that it’s very dear to us and close to our hearts. We all love Alan Wake at Remedy and I think all of us want to see a new Alan Wake game. I just want to say that out loud. Unfortunately, I can’t speak to it anymore than that. We’ll see what happens with Alan Wake next, but we all want to see it happen, absolutely.”While there have never been any official sequels to Alan Wake, that's not to say that the story has ended completely. Following the initial release of the game, two additional episodes were released as downloadable content to continue the story, as was a live-action web series titled Bright Falls (named after the town in which the game is set). There was even a novelization of the game written by Rick Burroughs, a book called The Alan Wake Files included in limited editions of the game, as well as an in-univere spinoff game called Alan Wake's American Nightmare. That said, the supplementary material did not fully satisfy the game's cliffhanger ending.Remedy is currently focusing all of their attention on Control right now.However, the upcoming game appears to be following a similarly mind-bending aesthetic to Alan Wake, which might be enticing for gamers looking to fill that void. But still, an Alan Wake sequel has been a longtime coming, so, hopefully, Control's potential success might convince Remedy Entertainment to give their original blockbuster game another shot.More: Source: The post appeared first on
Danish developer Playdead confirms that two of the best video game platformers of recent years are headed to the Nintendo Switch next week. These ports are representative of the widespread availability of Limbo and Inside on modern gaming platforms, with versions currently available for multiple devices, including iPhone, Xbox One, and PS4.Inside first released on PC and modern consoles in 2016, with one-week exclusivity on Xbox One. It’s the follow-up to Playdead’s critically acclaimed Limbo, a black-and-white 2D platformer that originated on the Xbox 360’s Live Arcade. Limbo set sales records and was eventually ported to virtually every platform available, inclusive of Linux and Android versions.Related: While the developers made fans wait an impressive seven years for a follow-up game, Inside was welcomed with open arms by gamers and critics, who praised the art direction, puzzle-platforming, compelling yet muted plot, and dramatic presentation of a dystopic world featuring themes of mind control. Japanese gaming magazine posted a tweet this morning stating that the games were priming for release on the Nintendo Switch, and themselves followed up to confirm the news.Numerous debuts and upcoming games were announced for the Nintendo Switch during and following E3 2018. While it still seems that the lauded on the platform, as a free download and a (the full game releases on June 22) were some notable highlights.Unbeknownst to gamers, news of Playdead’s own ports were following close behind. Limbo’s distribution history might make the port sound significantly less surprising than that of Inside, which is available on far fewer platforms. However, it should be noted that, since coming out in 2010, Limbo has actually never been released on any version of Nintendo’s hardware, marking these ports as the first Nintendo appearances for the studio.As for Playdead’s newest untitled game, little information has been revealed since its announcement last year, aside from a few images depicting a lonely, snow-covered environment. With this most recent news, at least a precedent will exist and the game may share its release on the Switch platform.Inside and Limbo’s murky, downcast themes introduce some well-needed variety among Nintendo’s sunnier options, and will hopefully lead to strong sales. The two games are set for release on June 28, so interested gamers should mark their calendars.More: Source: Playdead/ The post appeared first on
The first trailer for director Robert Zemeckis' Welcome to Marwen puts Steve Carell in action figure form.
The writers of have spent years teasing MODOK in the MCU - and they're not done suggesting the villain. As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand on the big and small screen, almost all of the classic heroes and villains have appeared in some form or another. But one major rogue who's yet to arrive has two very vocal champions. Back in 2011, Captain America: The First Avengers co-writer , allowing Steve Rogers to battle one of his most iconic foes.Though the design of MODOK is quite unusual, Markus and his writing partner Stephen McFeely still think he could easily fit into the grounded world of the MCU. After all, the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise has greatly expanded the aesthetic palette Marvel can work with. Regardless of any obstacles, however, the duo have remained insistent about the character's involvement in a future film. In 2014, the was almost in the movie and reaffirmed their desire to bring him aboard someday. Could 2019 be the year?RELATED: The podcast, hosted by Kevin Smith and Marc Bernadin, spoke with Markus and McFeely about which villains they still want to bring into the MCU, and who almost made the cut for . According to Markus, MODOK was once again in contention, but the prospect of introducing the unique villain was too much to deal with.I've wanted to put M.O.D.O.K. in, and it's very hard to go 'here's the supporting character the giant head'.' And then we're going to get on with the story. We just came to him for information. Like you kind of have to design the whole movie around the guy with the giant head.Avengers: Infinity War was a busy film, but its balance of characters and story kept it from feeling bloated. Part of that was due to a main focus on Thanos and some periphery attention given to the Black Order and the mindless Outriders. Still, a return for the Red Skull was worked in, though that didn't require nearly as much explanation as setting up a whole new villain. But to plague the Avengers during their darkest hour, with Thanos only coming into play later in the film. If that's the case, then the creepy MODOK could emerge from the chaos. Markus said:I have love for M.O.D.O.K. and I still think properly done he'd be terrifying. Like you look all the way down the hall and like this huge head comes around the corner and starts coming and...oh, it would be awesome.MODOK would certainly be a frightening presence if executed properly, and Avengers 3 opened up all sorts of doors for the MCU. The "grounded" nature of the universe has expanded to include a lot of fantastical concepts, and A.I.M. already exists in some form. With that in mind, the science terrorist group could reform after their defeat in Iron Man 3 and use the loss of Earth's heroes to create MODOK. The villain and his creators could then be explored further in a future Iron Man, Captain America, or Avengers film, any of which Markus and McFeely would likely be happy to write if it includes MODOK. We'll have to wait and see if that happens, but Avengers 4 isn't far away now and could finally make the writing duo's longtime dream come true.MORE: Source: The post appeared first on
