By now, you probably know all about some of the cameos in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, like Daniel Craig’s secret appearance and the actors behind the voice of BB-8. But there are a couple more hidden cameos you most likely didn’t notice — as it...

‘Jane Got a Gun’ Trailer: Natalie Portman Needs a Gunslinger

After suffering delays, director changes, casting changes, more delays and a studio bankruptcy, Jane Got a Gun is finally coming to theaters. Natalie Portman stars in the new western as a desperate woman who seeks the aid of an old boyfriend to help defend her homestead from the men who previously held her captive. The latest trailer for the film doesn’t do it much favors, between the generic heavy rock music and the generic DTV action flick font — but the actual footage still looks enticing, at the very least.

Jane Got a Gun has had a very, very troubled production — from the departure of director Lynn Ramsay to cast changes and release delays, the film started to feel like one long, unfortunate practical joke, and it was unclear if we’d actually ever see this film hit theaters. With the recent collapse of Relativity Media, the uncertainty only grew, but The Weinstein Co. has swept in to save Natalie Portman’s western and given it a 2016 release date…for now.

Danny Boyle Says ‘Trainspotting’ Sequel Is His Next Movie, Finally, Maybe

by Britt Hayes September 7, 2015 @ 12:22 PM
Danny Boyle has been teasing us with the promise of a Trainspotting sequel for years, to be based on Irvine Welsh’s novel Porno, itself a sequel to Welsh’s source material for Boyle’s original film. The director has talked up the sequel so much with no actual momentum that it hardly feels like a possibility, but Boyle is at it again, and this time he says the Trainspotting followup is his next movie.

Ewan McGregor Doesn’t Like the Cruciform Lightsaber Either

by Matt Singer January 27, 2015 @ 12:14 PM
By far, the most divisive element of the first ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailer was the debut of the new cruciform lightsaber. Some folks thought it looked totally cool, and others felt that it was an implausible and unrealistic weapon (as opposed to the regular lightsaber, which is totes plausible and realistic).
