Four years after announcing his retirement from feature filmmaking, Steven Soderbergh is set to return with a brand new heist movie, Logan Lucky, which he says is a “complete inversion” of his well-known Ocean’s trilogy.
The first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuted this morning, and…wow, we’re gonna need a minute (or 20) to process, especially with Luke Skywalker’s suspenseful voiceover. We were promised we’d get to hear Mark Hamill speak, and speak he does — throughout most of the trailer, ending with a fairly chilling line: “It’s time for the Jedi to end.” But what does that mean?! Is Rey the eponymous last Jedi, or is Luke? That’s something we probably won’t know until December. For now, join us as we try to break it all down and take a closer look at the most thrilling (and possibly telling) moments with GIFs and screenshots from the trailer.
If all you Star Wars fans are still alive out there, congrats for surviving one of the most exciting Fridays in ages! The cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi showed up at Star Wars Celebration Orlando this afternoon and unloaded a galaxy full of exciting reveals.
HBO’s Girls may be saying goodbye next Sunday, but don’t expect everyone to attend the farewell. Half the title Girls apparently won’t take part in the sixth season (and series) finale, as this past week’s “Goodbye Tour” lives up to the name.
After six years, Hannah Horvath might finally be the voice of someone’s generation. That’s the understatement of Girls’ first series finale trailer, as the sixth year for Hannah, Jessa, Marnie, Shoshanna, Adam and Elijah comes to an end next week.
Earlier this week, Leos Carax fans and lovers of weird films in general were overjoyed to learn that the director’s musical, titled Annette, is officially happening with (we thought) Rihanna and Adam Driver set to star. But now it appears that only...
Have you seen Holy Motors? If not, add it to your to-watch list post-haste. French filmmaker Leos Carax’s bizarro collection of connected vignettes follows a odd man named Mr. Oscar as he goes about his day enacting a series of elaborate role playing scenarios, from a facially-scarred hitman to a hair-eating troll to a motion-capture technician creating an alien phantom. I’m not selling it all that well, but trust me when I say there’s a reason it usually ends up in conversations about the finest films of our young millennium. And continue trusting me when I tell you that news of another feature project from the less-than-prolific Carax is ample reason to prick up your ears and pay attention.
Terry Gilliam’s Don Quixote movie, the production history of which could itself best be described as the very definition of the word “quixotic,” has officially begun production this week. The film has been in the works since its ill-fated first attempt in 2000, and Gilliam has been hard at work trying to make it happen ever since.
Logan Lucky marks Steven Soderbergh’s return to directing after coming out of “retirement” after his 2013 movie Side Effects, and as such it’s one of the most anticipated movies of this year. Today is a great, great day, because not only do we get our first official look at Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, and Adam Driver’s characters, but we also get a release date that’s two months earlier than expected!
In the world of Star Wars fandom, the simplest, smallest things can have major implications, inspiring exhaustive speculation over their potential meaning — like, for instance, Lucasfilm’s recent updates to Kylo Ren and Rey’s official character bios. Those pages were quietly updated sometime in the last few months to include phrases that convey a direct connection between the two characters; one that seemingly goes beyond their on-screen encounters in The Force Awakens. But what does it all mean?
