Star Wars Episode VII

All good things come to those who wait…

After months and months of speculation and endless casting rumors, we now finally have an official casting announcement for director J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII. Of course, it comes as no surprise that the original cast is returning (especially after having been spotted in London recently where Episode VII will begin filming). But this announcement also contains a list of other names added to the cast – some of which would be considered “unknowns,” meaning they’re not incredibly famous actors (not uncommon for a Star Wars film), and others that are definitely more well-known, and quite a surprise to say the least! Hit the jump for the official press release!

THE-HOBBIT-FAKE-BOFA-TITLE

Last week a rumor hit that the third film in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit Trilogy, There and Back Again, might get a new title, following a report that the title The Hobbit: Into the Fire was recently registered by New Line.

As it turns out, Peter Jackson himself revealed to the world through his Facebook page that indeed the title of the third film has changed, but not to Into the Fire. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is now the title of the third film, rather than The Hobbit: There and Back Again. Read what Jackson had to say about the change, as well as some brief details on the Extended Edition of The Desolation of Smaug below!

Chris Carter made his mark in television history in a big way with The X-Files and Millennium back in the 90s. Gale Anne Hurd became one of the biggest producers in film with The Terminator, Terminator 2, and Aliens, and more recently in television with AMC’s The Walking Dead. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the two TV/film legends have teamed up to create a new series for AMC titled Area 51. Seems right up Carter’s alley. Hit the jump for details!

Ninja Turtles Teaser

Attention, 80s kids! Our first real look at this summer’s new live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is now online in the first teaser for the film. Produced by Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan Liebesman, this film will be the first Ninja Turtles live-action movie to feature the title characters using CGI and motion-capture effects, and I have to say, it looks both quite realistic – and also kind of creepy. Judging from the teaser, however, it does look like they are definitely pushing for the dark and gritty feel of the original comics, while still capturing the light-hearted essence of the original cartoon and movies. Forgetting the live-action sequels of the 90s, the first film proved that this concept can work quite well. Let’s hope they finally pull it off again. Hit the jump to watch the teaser!

It’s here. The first official full-length trailer for director Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla film has hit the web, and it has everything a fan could want, and yet still doesn’t show us much of the monster – which is great. We want to be teased mercilessly until the film’s debut in May.

In the new trailer, we mostly see more destruction, with Bryan Cranston’s character exhuding ominous warning via voice-over, coupled with the classic soundtrack from 2001: A Space Odessey (I know that sounds weird, given that this is not a space movie, but trust me, it works). The first teaser was great, but this one’s even better and will get you pumped. Hit the jump to watch!

About every few months, another interview with David Duchovny, Chris Carter, or some other cast or crew member of The X-Files surfaces discussing the possibility of a third film in the franchise, particularly one that would conclude the ever-popular “alien colonization” mythology storyline that the TV series first set into motion in the early 90s.

This time, we’re back at it with Gillian Anderson, who recently commented on the matter in an interview with IGN, saying that it’s possible the third film would not be about the alien mythology, and that, if the film happens, it probably won’t be until 2016. Read on for more!

Capture

One of the most incredible aspects of both The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit films are the musical scores composed by Howard Shore. These films would definitely lack the emotional impact they currently have if the films didn’t have that musical foundation to stand upon. The various themes Shore has created have stood the test of time, and he’s still working hard at creating new themes that are hopefully just as memorable.

In Peter Jackson’s latest production video, we get to take a look behind the scenes of orchestrating new music for Middle Earth, including themes for the characters Tauriel and Smaug. Hit the jump to watch!
