Thanks to modern journalism, we already know quite a bit about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, including character names and background info, new aliens and villains, and even new spaceships we’ll see in the upcoming spinoff. The only thing that hasn’t been extensively covered as of yet is the film’s mysterious title, which is no longer a mystery thanks to director Gareth Edwards.

Don’t call it a comeback. No, really — you may think that ’90s darling Alicia Silverstone hasn’t been doing much acting in recent years, and while that’s partially true, you just haven’t been looking in the right places. The actress appears to be choosing more interesting roles as of late, and after recently appearing in the James Franco festival fave King Cobra, she’s turned her sights to one of our most compelling modern filmmakers: Yorgos Lanthimos.
Set photos — both official and otherwise — from the set of Thor: Ragnarok continue to hit the internet, and the latest batch feature the return of another familiar face, though he’s not looking quite how you remember him. With most of Ragnarok taking place in Asgard and its various unearthly realms, it’s kind of surprising to see Anthony Hopkins in costume on the streets of New York City, looking like he’s in need of some spare change. (And a change of clothes. And a shower.)
If you want to ignite a seething debate on Twitter just publish a list. Last week the #Fav7Films hashtag took film Twitter by storm, and now a new list of the 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century has catapulted another heated conversation into the spotlight.
Do you like music? How about romance? What about both of those amidst gorgeous sceneries? Then ‘La La Land’ will probably be your most anticipated movie of the year. If not, just watch the new teaser trailer for an express ticket to swoon city.
2016 has been the year of pop culture surprise releases — some, like Lemonade and 10 Cloverfield Lane, have been pretty great, which makes us even more hopeful for Blair Witch. Originally marketed as The Woods, the sneaky sequel to the found footage horror classic is set to hit theaters next month, taking audiences back to where it all began…but judging by these new TV spots, heading back into the woods of Burkittsville seems like a pretty terrible idea (in a good, spooky way, of course).
Vice Principals Season 1 may be ending next month, but HBO NOW’s September slate also includes the series premiere of the network’s latest comedy offering, High Maintenance. For those interested in catching up with (or revisiting) newer films, HBO’s big September movie additions include The Revenant and Steve Jobs.
Paramount has yet to confirm a release date for Martin Scorsese’s new film, Silence, which may or may not hit theaters during awards season. The iconic director’s latest is a period drama based on the Shūsaku Endō novel of the same name, and stars Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver — and although we’ve seen a few stills from the film, the studio has yet to release an official trailer, making Silence and its potential late-2016 arrival all the more intriguing. Adding to that curiosity is a new report suggesting that the forthcoming drama may be Scorsese’s longest film to date.
Empire Magazine gave us a look at the Rebels and Imperial Military in their alternate ‘Rogue One’ covers. Now Star War‘s latest droid has his very own cover.
It won’t be too much longer (November, to be exact) before we see the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but to help tide you over, James Gunn has debuted some new concept art — okay, concept art isn’t a trailer, but this particular image does offer a sneak peek at a particularly ferocious new alien villain battling the core Guardians crew, including a ridiculously adorable Baby Groot.
