Hear what the Porgs from Star Wars: The Last Jedi sound like

28 minutes ago

Earlier this month we got our first look at the Porgs – small, puffin-like creatures who live with Luke Skywalker on the planet of Ahch-To in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Reaction to the new creatures was somewhat mixed – “they’re the new Ewoks!” – and now we have a video of a Porg toy which lets us know what the little fellas sound like; check it out here via Star Wars News Net…

Cute? Annoying? I guess we’ll have to wait until December to find out for sure…

Tom Holland to star in Beneath a Scarlet Sky

48 minutes ago

Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland is set to reunite with producer Amy Pascal on an adaptation of Mark Sullivan’s novel Beneath a Scarlet Sky, which has been acquired by Pascal Pictures. The bestselling book is described as “triumphant, epic tale of one young man’s incredible courage and resilience during one of history’s darkest hours.” Here’s the official synopsis from Amazon:

Pino Lella wants nothing to do with the war or the Nazis. He’s a normal Italian teenager—obsessed with music, food, and girls—but his days of innocence are numbered. When his family home in Milan is destroyed by Allied bombs, Pino joins an underground railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps, and falls for Anna, a beautiful widow six years his senior.

In an attempt to protect him, Pino’s parents force him to enlist as a German soldier—a move they think will keep him out of combat. »

2017 Has Been A Bad Year For Blockbusters, And That’s No Surprise

1 hour ago

If Hollywood had stopped making bad films, they would have made more money…

2017 probably isn’t the year to say that the Hl Mencken line about nobody losing money underestimating the public isn’t true, but it certainly looks like it no longer holds for the film industry.

Amidst the wailing and gnashing of teeth from studio executives with the news that 2017’s summer crop of blockbusters have failed to bust any blocks, there is the hope that maybe people have finally realised that the general public might go and see franchise films, remakes and comedy reboots of bad TV shows, they won’t go and see just Any old franchise films, remakes and comedy reboots of bad TV shows.

With studios looking likely to have their worst summer in ten years, the finger of blame is being pointed at an over dependence on stale movie ideas and big budget »

Marvel’s The Defenders Season 1 Episode 3 Review – ‘Worst Behavior’

2 hours ago

Ricky Church reviews the third episode of Marvel’s The Defenders

The third episode of The Defenders takes it biggest leap yet in assembling the team as all four of them come together for the climactic fight scene. It was an entertaining episode that highlighted each hero’s differences in their personalities and how they operate. There were a couple great scenes between the heroes, one in particular, as the threat begins to really loom large over the show. That said, though, there were a couple choices that dragged this episode down a bit.

Starting ‘Worst Behavior’ off with an extended flashback with Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra and Elodie Yung’s Elektra was an interesting choice. It was essentially a 10 minute plus training montage for Elektra as Alexandra and The Hand brought her back from death as a blank slate. This is the most amount of screen time Yung has gotten in Defenders so far, »

Detroit – London Press Conference Report

4 hours ago

Recent events in Charlottesville hung over the room at the London press conference for Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit.  But they were far from being the elephant in the room that nobody would talk about.

Director Bigelow, along with cast members John Boyega, Will Poulter, Jack Reynor and Hannah Murray, tackled questions head on about the relevance of the events depicted in the film.  Set in Detroit in 1967, it covers the riots in the city and the murder of three young African Americans.  The film’s historical accuracy and attention to detail in telling the story was of equal importance to director and cast alike, with John Boyega relating how he met Melvin Desmukes, who he portrays in the film, and Bigelow describing how the real Julie (played on screen by Hannah Murray) was on set with her every day during filming.

We can add a Jabba the Hutt movie to Lucasfilm’s Star Wars spinoff plans

12 hours ago

A couple of days ago it was announced that Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) is in talks with Lucasfilm about directing a Star Wars Anthology movie based upon the untold adventures of Obi-Wan Kenobi, which was followed up by reports suggesting that Boba Fett and Yoda spinoffs are also in active development.

Well, it looks like we can add another project to the list, and yes, it’s a prequel based around an existing character – this time the feared gangster Jabba the Hutt. The report comes by way of Variety, although there are no further details about the potential spinoff.

Given that Jabba is already established as a crime lord by the time of The Phantom Menace, a spinoff movie could potentially take place at any time from the late Republic period through to the Original Trilogy. And if course, it also opens up the possibility of using characters »
