Ewan McGregor Explains Why He Nearly Turned Down ‘Star Wars’

Over the past few years, there has been a small but noticeable attempt to rehabilitate the image of the Star Wars prequels in popular culture. Last November, for example, the A.V. Club published an article on why the Star Wars prequels don’t deserve our hatred. Similar pieces have been published in The Mary Sue, USA Today, and many other websites and online publications. It just goes to show that there is a lid for every pot, no matter how misshapen that pot may be.

‘Jurassic World 2’ Will Start Filming Next March

One of the peculiarities of the modern studio system is that we often know the date a movie will be released long before we know the date when a movie will actually go into production. For example, we’ve known since last year that Jurassic World 2 would be released in June of 2018, but here it is, the end of 2016, and we’re just now learning the timeline to actually make the darn thing. Production schedules, like box office gross, sometimes have a logic all their own.

The First ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Trailer Is a Lurid Dystopian Dream

This past weekend, Paramount Pictures kicked off the publicity tour for its upcoming Ghost in the Shell adaptation with a global launch party in Tokyo. Cast and crew were on hand to talk about the film; exhibitions of the film’s art and costume designs were on display for those in attendance. For the rest of us, something even better was announce: the first theatrical trailer for Ghost in the Shell is here, and it is not exactly short on style.

There Are Whole Seconds of New Joker Footage in This ‘Suicide Squad’ TV Spot

Look, all things being equal, I really didn’t mind Jared Leto’s take on the Joker in Suicide Squad. Yes, the constant news items about what latest “crazy” thing he did to get in character were pretty annoying, and yes, the number of people who seem to think that Joker and Harley Quinn’s relationship is something to emulate is downright disturbing, but Leto seemed like a perfect fit for the gloomy and angst-ridden universe that Warner Bros. has created for its DC Comics characters. At another studio, he’d be woefully out of place. In this one? He’s fine.

Jeremy Renner Might Skip ‘Mission: Impossible 6’ for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

While there are any number of things to love about this weekend’s theatrical release of Arrival — and we do offer a few of them in our review of the film  —  one thing that doesn’t always find its way into the buzz is the career rehabilitation of Jeremy Renner. Renner has spent so much time the past few years playing interchangeable action figures that we almost forgot his talent as an actor. It’s been a long time since he’s been this likable.

David Yates Confirms He Will Direct All Five ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Films

Fans love consistency. That’s part of what has made the Marvel Cinematic Universe such a hit: each movie has the same comfort level as our dogeared childhood copies of Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew novels. Even when the names behind the camera change, we can be assured of the same familiar faces, the same balance of humor and solemnity, the same polished veneer regardless of character. But while Marvel may choose to have multiple directors adhere to their famous house style, it seems that Warner Bros. has gone a different route with the Harry Potter universe: just have one person shoot the whole darn thing.

The Final ‘Star Wars’ Episode Will Be Shot on 65mm Film

With TV becoming ever more cinematic, movies feel the need to do what they can to make going to the theater an experience that can’t be gotten anywhere else. That’s why many directors have been pushing for the advent of larger film stock that can be converted to formats like IMAX, to give blockbusters the all-encompassing scope they require for their grandiose stories. The Star Wars saga is the next series to get the treatment, as director Colin Trevorrow says he’s going to shoot Episode IX on 65mm film.
