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.
The 'Twilight' films may have reached their (seemingly) definitive conclusion back in 2012 with 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,' but the series lives on as a massive piece of modern popular culture. We can't talk about vampires and werewolves ever again without someone making an Edward or Jacob joke. Supernatural romance is bigger than it has ever been before. And then there's the fact that the franchise's success continues to inspire countless imitators.
We only remind you of this because yes, it's still okay to make fun of the 'Twilight' movies in 2014 and the latest hilarious video from the folks at Bad Lip Reading does just that.
We heard the rumors that the third of Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' trilogy would be undergoing a title change and today, it came to pass. What was once 'The Hobbit: There and Back Again' is now 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.' What was once pleasant and sentimental is now battle-hardened and filled with promises of action. Take from that change what you will.
'Jurassic Park 4' quietly began filming a little over a week ago and the first images from the set have begun to trickle out. Those hoping to catch a glimpse of a T-Rex or a velociraptor will have to wait a little while longer, but there's enough subtle goodness in these three photos to get any fan excited.
'Super Troopers' was a modest success when it was released back in 2001, but time has been kind to it. The film steadily became a cult favorite and by the later half of the decade, you couldn't even walk into a college dorm room without tripping over a copy of the DVD. Although the Broken Lizard comedy troupe has gone on to make other movies with mixed success, fans have been eagerly anticipating the return of these hilariously incompetent cops in 'Super Troopers 2'.
Robert Downey Jr. may be relatively new to Twitter, but he's taken to it like a duck to water as he's made fans happy by tweeting a photo from the set of 'The Avengers 2.' Downey has a penchant for charming self promotion that would put even Tony Stark to shame.
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.
All of the trailers for 'Godzilla' have put emphasis on tone, showcasing the aftermath of epic monster rampages and giving us tons of close-ups of people whose days have been pretty much ruined. But this new TV spot does something a little different, selling the human story behind all of the chaos and destruction. Oh, and it does so while offering our best look yet at Godzilla himself.
Whenever a big movie comes out, the stars make the press rounds, appear on talk shows and generally do everything in their power make sure you know the name of their film and the day it is hitting theaters. Although this often involves hearing the same canned answers time and time again, it sometimes means you get to see some of your favorite actors pop up in unexpected places. In this case, 'Neighbors' stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron teamed up with the cast of 'Workaholics,' delivering more of the hit Comedy Central show and giving them a chance to plug their upcoming movie.
When it was revealed that the sequel to 'Man of Steel' would actually be 'Batman vs. Superman', fans were both excited and concerned. To some, it sounded like the best thing ever. To others, it seemed like desperation after Superman's epic return didn't do 'The Dark Knight'-sized business. However, director Zack Snyder has officially gone on record explaining why the Caped Crusader will be in the film ... and it turns out that he's been thinking about this for awhile.
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?
