Andy Serkis Says Colin Trevorrow’s Exit From Star Wars Was An Agreeable Parting

33 minutes ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With his own directorial debut – the biographical drama, Breathe – about to arrive in cinemas, prolific performer Andy Serkis is making himself available to the press for promotional purposes. As a cast member in some of the biggest movie franchises currently being made, however, those conversations inevitably stray into non-Breathe territory – and one such topic to be covered is his role as Supreme Leader Snoke in the Star Wars saga.

When the mysterious villain first appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he sent fans into a frenzy of speculation – wondering who he is, and where he comes from. While Serkis himself has stated that he does indeed have the answers to those questions, he is also, understandably, sworn to secrecy by Lucasfilm.

Though the character features prominently in the latest trailer for The Last Jedi, it’s the fact that Star Wars: Episode IX will now be helmed by »

Carrie Fisher Delivered a Cow Tongue to the Producer Who Sexually Assaulted Her Friend

7 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Carrie Fisher may no longer be with us, but her legacy in Hollywood continues to inspire. Fisher’s friend, television producer and director Heather Ross, is one of the many women revealing her own experiences with sexual assault in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. She told Tucson radio program “The Morning Mix” that after an unnamed “Oscar-winning” producer at Sony assaulted her, Fisher went on a revenge mission of her own to defend her friend by hand delivering a cow tongue to her assaulter.

“It was a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli with a note that said, ‘If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box,'” Ross said. “It felt validating to know that this woman, who I love as a friend, was not just a fake Hollywood friend. »

16 October 2017 1:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Carrie Fisher has been a beacon of hope for many who couldn't speak up for themselves out of shame or fear and she continues to do so even after her death. One of Fisher's close friends, screenwriter Heather Ross, recently told a radio station about her own experiences with sexual misconduct in Hollywood while stating that Carrie Fisher took it upon herself to exact revenge on the Academy Award winning Hollywood producer in Ross' honor. The way in which Fisher threatened the producer falls in line with her strength as well as her sense of humor.

Heather Ross called into a Tucson, Arizona radio station to talk about the Sony executive that sexually harassed her back in 2000. The terrible story begins like many of the stories surrounding Harvey Weinstein. Ross explained the encounter in vivid detail, stating that the high powered producer molested her while she was in his parked car. »

Carrie Fisher's Dog Watching Star Wars 8 Trailer Will Break Your Heart

14 October 2017 1:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last Monday night marked a huge event for Star Wars fans all over the world with the release of the brand new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer. The unexpectedly dark sneak peak was a welcome sight, while scenes featuring Carrie Fisher's General Organa packed an emotional wallop that many weren't expecting, except for perhaps the littlest "biggest" Star Wars fan in the galaxy. Gary, Carrie Fisher's French bulldog, was photographed watching his mom in General Leia's costume for the last time and it is a tearjerker.

The picture was posted on Gary's official Instagram account and featured a caption that said, "Just watched the new trailer of The Last Jedi and my mom looks more beautiful than ever."

Star Wars: Lucasfilm Has Already Mapped Out Snoke’s Backstory

14 October 2017 10:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Supreme Leader Snoke may be comparable to Emperor Palpatine in that Andy Serkis’ humanoid alien has been angled as the ultimate big bad of Disney’s current Star Wars saga, but whereas the prequels outlined every step of Palpatine’s rise (descent?) into Darth Sidious, Rian Johnson has vowed to exercise some restraint when it comes to Snoke and his place in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

What we do know, though, is that he’s the master puppeteer pulling the strings behind the First Order – the modern incarnation of the Galactic Empire, essentially – and prefers to command his troops from afar. That’s a strategy we saw unfold in The Force Awakens, when Snoke relayed instructions via a floor-to-ceiling hologram. Turns out the villain has been housed up in his Mega Star Destroyer, the Supremacy, all along, but everyone involved in the film has assured us that he’ll »

Is Rey a Palpatine or Kenobi in The Last Jedi?

14 October 2017 10:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The final trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi sent the internet into a bonafide tizzy. Fans were apoplectic at the scene where Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), flying his bad-assed Tie Interceptor, seems to target his mother, Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) on her ship. Then at the trailer's culmination, the idea that Rey (Daisy Ridley), in a quest to find her place in the madness, would entertain following Kylo Ren. These are all misdirects meant to whip up fan fervor. It's obvious from the quick cut edit that the last scene takes place in two different settings. Lucasfilm is all about clever marketing. Just as in the trailer for The Force Awakens, nothing from the actual film was given away. Besides, Star Wars fans would march on Lucasfilm with sharpened plastic lightsabers if Kylo Ren killed Han Solo and Princess Leia. He may have targeted her, but there isn't a »

J.J. Abrams Told Daisy Ridley To Treat Star Wars Like A Religion

13 October 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking a job on a Star Wars film must be simultaneously thrilling and terrifying. On one hand, the movie is all but guaranteed to be a success, you’ll get a chance to appear in one of the most iconic franchises of all-time and, if the whole acting career doesn’t work out, you can make a living on the convention circuit signing glossy headshots. On the other hand, though, screw this up and it’ll follow you to your grave, as hardcore franchise fans will not forgive anyone for messing with their baby.

All that’s probably why J.J. Abrams gave some pointed advice to then-newcomer Daisy Ridley when she was cast as Rey in The Force Awakens. In a recent interview with Vogue, she laid out what he said:

“Understand the scale. This is not a role in a movie. This is a religion for people. It changes »

Luke Shows His Dark Side in Massive Last Jedi IMAX Standee

11 October 2017 1:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With 64 days and a few hours left until the first screenings of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we learned yesterday that there will be many IMAX exclusives given away during Thursday night screenings, depending on which theater you go to. Today, IMAX has revealed a brand new theater display, which will supposedly be placed as a frame, of sorts, to the theater entrance, with each side featuring a look at the "light" and "dark" side of the iconic Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). While there is no indication as to what "side" may prevail in this highly-anticipated movie, this theater display poses some interesting questions.

This image debuted on IMAX Twitter, which revealed it will be on display in "select IMAX theaters," although no further details were given. The image on the left side features the "light" side of Luke Skywalker, where he's seen looming over heroes new and old such »
