by Mike Sampson September 15, 2014 @ 8:22 AM
So far, we have heard rumors that two of the three planned 'Star Wars' spinoffs were to follow Boba Fett and Han Solo. Then there was the mysterious third spinoff, which we haven't much concrete information on. Until now. A recent report suggests that despite earlier reports that the spinoffs wouldn't follow any Jedi or Sith characters, Lucasfilm is currently working with artists and a writer to develop an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie.

'Mortdecai' Trailer: Johnny Depp, and This Time He Has a Wacky Mustache!

Although the trailer doesn't sell any of the plot of 'Mortdecai,' it does sell Johnny Depp's newest weird character: a snobby art dealer who appears debonair but is actually a bit of a bumbling oaf. Depp doesn't wear any silly hats this time around, but he does have a silly mustache and a wacky accent, so everything balances out in the end.

Danny Boyle's 1996 dark dramedy 'Trainspotting,' based on the Irvine Welsh novel of the same name, follows a group of friends in a low-income area of 1980s Edinburgh, Scotland, as they try to kick their heroin habit.

Eighteen years later, we revisit the cast of this edgy classic and see what they're up to now.

Samuel L. Jackson Says 'Star Wars: Episode 7' Director J.J. Abrams Hasn't Contacted Mark Hamill

'Star Wars: Episode 7' has been rumoring the return of original cast members since the project was announced, but as the film is taking a new direction now that J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan have taken over scripting duties, it's possible that the original cast may no longer have a role in the production. Former Jedi Samuel L. Jackson has spoken to Mark Hamill about returning as Luke Skywalker, and revealed that Hamill hasn't spoken to Abrams.

'Star Wars: Episode 7' Will Feature the Return of Obi-Wan Kenobi

by Jacob Hall August 16, 2013 @ 9:58 AM
If you were wondering how closely 'Star Wars: Episode 7' would be tied to the previous films in the franchise, the answer is it's looking very much like "at the hip." We've just learned that the evil Emperor Palpatine would be making a return in J.J. Abrams' long-awaited sequel, and now it looks like another supposedly dead character is set to show up. After all, it really wouldn't be a 'Star Wars' movie without some kind of appearance from Obi-Wan Kenobi, right?

'Jack the Giant Slayer' Review

Warner Bros.
The third row of an IMAX screen is a sufficiently disadvantageous perspective to give you a taste of the way the hero of 'Jack the Giant Slayer' sees the world. From that angle, even regular-sized humans loom ominously overhead; you can imagine how big the giants look. But that's about as impressive as the surprisingly crummy 'Jack' gets.
