John Boyega’s Finn takes center stage in a new 30 second spot previewing “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The new footage shows off Finn’s journey from storm trooper to hero, which include stops at partnering up with Harrison Ford’s Han Solo, escaping certain danger alongside Daisy Ridley’s Rey and of course, wielding a lightsaber – one that looks suspiciously like the one Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) used in the original trilogy. The new “Star Wars” still remains mostly mysterious, but all will be revealed on December 18, 2015.Read More
After months of speculation, an official list of cast members for “Star Wars: Episode VII” was finally announced earlier this week. Although we still don’t know what kind of characters the cast will play, nor the official title of the film, it has also been confirmed that the Expanded Universe storylines and characters will not be part of the story. That pretty much leaves an empty canvas full of possibilities. Until we receive any hint of the plot, here are 7 things that we want to see in “Star Wars:Read More
George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have plans to continue their lucrative “Indiana Jones” franchise with Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role at least one more time, but they also have a contingency plan, according to the newest rumor going around courtesy of Latino Review. The LR guys report Disney have a specific start date in mind for “Indiana Jones V,” and if a new film starring Ford as Indy won’t come together by then, they are prepared to recast the role with a young actor able to relaunch the franchiseRead More
Suddenly everywhere Dutch actor Michiel Huisman has somehow found room in his schedule to fit in one more project. Variety reports the new “Game of Thrones” star will join Blake Lively, Ellen Burstyn and Harrison Ford in romantic drama “The Age of Adaline.” Huisman will play love interest to Lively’s character, a 29-year-old woman who miraculously stops aging after surviving a near fatal accident: “Over the 20th century she embarks on an epic, but isolated worldwide journey, keeping her secret, until she meets a man who forever alters her life.”Read More
There are so many ways an adaptation of “Ender’s Game” could have gone wrong. The book is beloved and genre fans are notoriously hard to please. Entrusting the fate of a big budget blockbuster to child actors is always a gamble. Space-set sci-fi movies can end up looking generic and indistinguishable from others. Etc. Etc. So it’s a pleasant surprise to be able to say that Gavin Hood exceeded expectations on his adaptation of the Orson Scott Card sci-fi classic, a cool, fun and original-looking film that doesn’t delve tooRead More
Hailee Steinfeld took Hollywood by storm when she came out of nowhere to land the lead in the Coens’ 2010 Western remake “True Grit” and ended up being nominated for an Oscar for her very first role at age 14. She’s laid low since, but in 2013 she’s back with a vengeance and this Friday she’ll be seen opposite Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford in “Ender’s Game,” the long-gestating adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s sci-fi classic. The film turned out fantastic, avoiding all the pitfalls it had laid before itRead More
“Ender’s Game” has been a long time coming. The Orson Scott Card book, first published in 1985, is a sci-fi classic and the author has been trying to get it made into a movie since pretty much its publication. While one incarnation after another fell apart, in 2011 it all seemed to fall into place. Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the “Twilight” franchise, picked it up, attached director Gavin Hood (who adapted the screenplay himself despite Card having given it a go himself over the years) and cast rising youngRead More
The child soldier angle of “Ender’s Game” gets hammered home hard in the first clip released today from Gavin Hood’s adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s seminal sci-fi novel. Asa Butterfield plays Ender Wiggins, who lives in a futuristic earth that’s been invaded by aliens called Formics. Ender is one of the chosen youngsters attending Battle School, where they are trained to wage virtual battles against the aliens. Ender is seen here looking barely old enough to be standing at attention in front of Harrison Ford‘s Hyrum Graff, given a promotionRead More
Asa Butterfield is caught in action in these brand new stills and IMAX poster for upcoming sci-fi adventure “Ender’s Game.” The photos also include a better look at the incredibly talented Hailee Steinfeld, who plays Petra, as she works tensely on the ship guided by Butterfield’s character Ender. Based on the seminal sci fi novel of the same title by controversial figure Orson Scott Card, the Gavin Hood directed film follows a young boy with special talents who is sought out and sent to a military school in space toRead More
Summit has released two new propaganda-style posters for Gavin Hood‘s “Ender’s Game” that asks the viewer to choose between humanity versus an alien domination. Just the latest in a string of upcoming young adult novel adaptations, “Ender’s Game” has the potential to follow in the footsteps of successful franchises such as “The Hunger Games” and “Harry Potter.” Although it has received negative buzz over its author’s anti-LGBT activism, the film’s premise combined with its stellar cast – which includes Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigial Breslin, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis andRead More
