'Star Wars' Buzz: 'The Last Jedi' Title Clarified, Jar-Jar's Fate Revealed, 'Rogue One' VFX Broken Down
Not so long ago, in a galaxy not at all far away... more Star Wars updates came along, and we share them with you here:
The Last Jedi is Plural
When Rian Johnson and Lucasfilm announced the title of this year's new Star Wars movie, also known as Episode VIII, fans were quick to wonder if Jedi was meant as singular or plural in that context. The word could be either, of course, and so "the last Jedi" might have meant Luke Skywalker or Rey or someone else. Or it might have meant all of the above or just some of the above. Finally, thanks to the official German translation of the title [via /Film], we have our answer: the Jedi referred to in the title concerns multiple characters. Which ones, however, is still a lingering...Read More

'Logan' Is One of The Smartest, Sweetest and Most Badass Comic Book Movies Ever Made
The opening scene in Logan tells you exactly what kind of movie you're about to watch. It pulls no punches, only claws, and by the end of it curse words are thrown, limbs are torn off, our hero is a bloody and disheveled mess, and we've just witnessed a moment in a Wolverine movie unlike any moment in any Wolverine movie thus far.
Meet Logan, Hugh Jackman's final farewell to a character he's played for 17 years across nine different movies (including cameos), a feat that culminates in a wildly violent R-rated spectacle that delivers fans the Wolverine movie they've always dreamed of watching. It's gutsy and quite possibly the riskiest film we've ever seen from a major studio when it comes to a brand as big and powerful as Wolverine and the X-Men...Read More
Update: Another New 'Power Rangers' Trailer Brings Our the Zords
Update 2/17/17: Another new Power Rangers trailer has hit online. It's short, but gives us new footage of the colorful team coming together. Check it out at the bottom of this post.
Previously: So far the marketing for the Power Rangers movie has been kind of shy about showing off. We got to see the character intros and how they all come across their suits, but the first trailer didn't have any big, full-body shots of the Rangers fighting in those suits. There were definitely no shots of their Zords (which is the name of the vehicles they pilot) or the bad guys they'd be fighting. Basically, we had no sense of it as an action movie, just as a drama about teens that come into superpowers.
But now the second trailer shows all of that stuff off and then...Read More
Comics on Film: Can the Now-Shooting 'Avengers: Infinity War' Possibly Live Up to the Hype?
When the Marvel Cinematic Universe began with 2008's original Iron Man film, few people realized that the first appearance of Nick Fury in the inaugural Marvel Studios post-credits scene would've led to something so monumental. It's actually kind of hard now to think about a superhero film climate without the massive shared universe's presence, since it's existed for nearly a decade by now.
In 2008, the big superhero movies that arrived that summer were the aforementioned Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, and that was also the summer that gave us The Dark Knight. We were only two years removed from entries like X-Men: The Last Stand and Superman Returns, with both of those franchises being in precarious positions by the time the MCU debuted. Now, though, we...Read More
Female Directors Buzz: Acclaimed Indie Director to Helm 'Marie Curie' Graphic Novel Adaptation
The filmmaking industry still has a long way to go when it comes to greater opportunities for women and people of color. We're always happy, though, to see progress being made, bit by bit.
Last year, Ava DuVernay was hired to direct Disney's A Wrinkle in Time, becoming the first woman to helm a movie with a production budgeted at more than $100 million. Earlier this week, Niki Caro became the second woman to receive that responsibility when she was named director of Disney's live-action version of Mulan.
Disney isn't the only company to hire women as directors of major motion pictures. Marjane Satrapi (above, top), a graphic novelist, illustrator and author, codirected her first movie in 2007, an adaptation of her graphic novel Persepolis that was nominated...Read More
Movie News: Sam Raimi May Direct Bermuda Triangle Movie; Watch Monstrous 'Kong: Skull Island' Clip

Two other projects are also in development about the region, known for the mysterious disappearance of planes and ships. [Heat Vision]
Jurassic World 2: Veteran character actor James Cromwell (Still Mine, above) has joined the cast of Jurassic World 2. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are reprising their roles, but no other character details have been released so far. The sequel begins filming later this month, aiming for theatrical release on June 22, 2018, under the direction of J.A. Bayona...Read More
