x Many fine actors came unstuck in the Star Wars prequels. The majority are objectively talented performers like Natalie Portman and Samuel L. Jackson, who simply came unstuck when faced with the terrible dialogue. That same factor also made certain actors that much worse, with Hayden Christianson’s Anakin at the bottom of the barrel terrible. In fact, there’s only a handful of people in the expansive cast who came out looking good, and they’re Liam Neeson, Ian McDiarmid and, best of all, Ewan McGregor. Widely considered to have had the best luck delivering the leaden dialogue, McGregor provided an emotional anchor for the films, doing his damnedest to make us believe in the growing rift between him and Anakin. Now, with The Phantom Menace reaching its 20th anniversary this year, the actor’s looked back at the film as part of Vanity Fair’s “25 Most Influential Movie Scenes of the Past 25 Years” list. The scene in question … [Read more...] about Ewan McGregor Explains How Reactions To The Star Wars Prequels Have Changed

x From Pulp Fiction to Jurassic Park, the ever-prolific Samuel L. Jackson has been in a ridiculous number of major films, a lot of which remain frequent pop culture reference points many years later. It therefore seems inevitable that the fictional worlds inhabited by the actor would inadvertently collide sooner or later, such is the case with the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home. This year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel will see Nick Fury finally cross paths with Peter Parker and his friend Ned, both of whom, as Homecoming makes clear, are fans of the Star Wars films. And seeing how Jackson features in three of those movies in the role of Mace Windu, the question has been raised on Reddit of what exactly Spidey will think when he meets the spitting image of the Prequel Trilogy Jedi in the new film.

The Star Wars franchise is full of some of the most recognizable sound effects to ever grace the big screen. Now, thanks to an unearthed video from 1980, the sounds that make up the Millennium Falcon failing to make it to hyperspace have been revealed. As is the case with nearly all other sound effects, the iconic ship's sounds are made up of from more than one source and then mixed together to create something brand-new and unique. Hardcore Star Wars fans can probably already hear the iconic sound in their heads and don't even need to pop in The Empire Strikes Back for reference. A New Hope sound engineer Ben Burtt demystifies the Millennium Falcon failed hyperspace sound in a quick two-minute video. To make the noise, Burtt relied on five different sounds to achieve what he was hearing in his head. The inertia starter of an old 1928 biplane, an air jet recorded in a dentist's office, the sound of an Arclight motor starting and stopping, the sound of a motor located in the turret of … [Read more...] about Vintage Star Wars Video Explains the Sounds Behind the Millennium Falcon
3 seconds ago The Super Bowl is this Sunday and for movie fans, that means trailers. Many of the year’s biggest movies will look to make a splash with trailer debuts during the big game while the whole country is watching. 2019 has no shortage of huge movies we want to see trailers for, but since we’ve already seen the first trailer for Avengers: Endgame, there’s no question which movie trailer we’re most itching to see next. While a contest of good versus evil is taking place on the field, will we get our first glimpse at the final battle between light and dark in a galaxy far, far away?

Nothing is confirmed at this point so we are left to speculate, but while I think it is safe to say that we all want to see something from Star … [Read more...] about Do We Even Need A Star Wars: Episode 9 Super Bowl Trailer?
EPISODE 9 begun filming in a secret location in the UK and it's expected to wrap in February 2019. But when is the trailer set to be released? Here is everything you need to know... When will Star Wars 9's trailer be released? Though fans are fully aware that Episode 9 won't hit cinemas until December 2019, many are chomping at the bit to catch a glimpse of any footage from the film. Filming doesn't wrap up until February, so provided there is enough footage to rustle up a trailer - it could be hitting our screens imminently. Some have speculated that the first trailer will be debuted at the Super Bowl on 3rd February - which would make sense as it is a huge international stage.
