It's happened: they've officially announced the cast of 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' We knew that original trilogy stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher would be returning to the roles that made their careers, but it's the new cast members that have us really excited. It's going to be nice to see Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Leia Organa reunited on the big screen, but it's going to be truly exciting to see what characters director J.J. Abrams will create from scratch.
The new cast members are a fantastic combo of established character actors, on-the-rise stars, living legends and complete unknowns. But, just in case you aren't familiar with them we've assembled a basic primer. Here's what you need to know about each of the new additions to the 'Star Wars' universe!
'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' hasn't even hit theaters in the United States yet and they've already started trying to sell us on the home video release. But, before we can say "Hey, hold your horses! We'll contemplate picking up the physical media after we've seen the movie!", they go ahead and reveal the special edition Blu-ray set and it is a thing of hideous, baffling beauty. Behold the 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' deluxe edition, which is housed inside the cranium of Jamie Foxx's Electro.
After nearly a month on top of the box office, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' got taken down by a bunch of funny ladies. 'The Other Woman' effortlessly took the top spot, sending Marvel's latest superhero adventure to the number two slot and making the other new releases of the week look bad.
When you follow movie news as closely as we do, you learn to roll your eyes at terrible ideas and move on. There's not point in getting worked up when a truly awful project is announced because getting worked up over every bad idea that comes out of Hollywood would mean getting worked up every single day of the year and we just don't have the energy to deal with getting worked up so often (whew).
But, today is a special day. Today, they've gone and announced movies based on Disneyland's 'It's a Small World' ride and popular Easter candy, Peeps Marshmallow Treats. Today, they have gone too far.
There is no easy way to finish 'Fast and Furious 7' without being somewhat insensitive toward the tragic death of series lead Paul Walker, but the cast and crew found the best and most noble solution imaginable. We already knew that Walker's brothers were going to join the production to help finish the film as body doubles, but they officially arrived on set and it looks like this plan is going to work.
There's no way the set of 'The Expendables 3' wasn't a fascinating place to be. After all, you don't put personalities as varied and eclectic as Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Harrison Ford in one place without generating at least a few stories worth sharing. A new batch of images from the set of the upcoming action film makes us wish we could have been a fly on the wall for a few days. What exactly would Antonio Banderas and Wesley Snipes say to each other?
This weekend saw a neck-and-neck race for the first spot at the box office, with the animated 'Rio 2' offering strong competition for last week's champion, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' When the dust, debris and feathers settled, the one starring the superhero took the first slot, but there is no shame in a second place that strong.
It really doesn't feel like 'SNL' unless there's a commercial parody video, which have been the show's bread and butter for decades. Last night's episode had the first memorable fake ad in awhile, offering a look at the thankfully fictional CNN pregnancy test.
In a move that should surprise approximately no one, the 'Divergent' film franchise will now be four films instead of three, with 'Allegiant,' the third book in Veronica Roth's best-selling series, now being adapted into two films. Just when you thought young-adult dystopic science-fiction stories were on the way out ...
Like 'Iron Man 3' and 'Thor: The Dark World,' the question was never whether or not 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' would take the number one spot at the box office, but rather how much it would earn while sitting pretty at the top of the list. Also, like its "Phase 2" predecessors, the second Steve Rogers adventure proved that people are still punch-drunk in love with the Avengers characters.
Like so many comedy shows, 'SNL' has occasionally felt like a boy's club, with the guys getting much of the best material, crazier characters and more memorable sketches. This has shifted in recent years and now the women of the show are allowed to get just as weird and nasty as their male counterparts. In a way, it all feels like it's been building up to this. Are you ready for "Dongs All Over the World"?
