The Celebrity Stormtroopers In Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Have Been Revealed

What a week it’s been for that galaxy far, far away.

From a thrilling new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker teaser trailer, to a bunch of fresh details releasing about the upcoming final chapter, Star Wars fever has once again well and truly struck back. And with Celebration still going on in Chicago, some interesting new casting rumors have begun to circulate.

As you may already know, the iconic sci-fi franchise has been filled to the brim with blink-and-you’ll-miss-it celebrity cameos. That’s right, Simon Pegg, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Edgar Wright, Kevin Smith, Gary Barlow and even Prince William and Prince Harry (whose Stormtroopers scene was cut from The Last Jedi) have all suited up for cameo roles in the super popular series. However, one question that’s been on many fans’ minds is what celebrity cameos will appear in Star Wars: The Rise Of The Skywalker?

10 Best Villain Actors Working in Hollywood Today

Tom Beasley on the 10 best villain actors working in Hollywood today…

Ask most actors what kind of role they like playing the most and they’ll tell you that they love having the opportunity to play a full-throttle, moustache-twirling villain. The old adage that bad guys have more fun is definitely true on the big screen, where it’s good to be bad on just about every level.

But not all screen baddies are created equal. There are some actors seemingly born to play the worst possible specimens of humankind – and indeed alienkind – in movies. With that in mind, Hollywood seems to have a travelling rep company of actors who can knock even the most generic of villainous roles out of the park with ease.

In that vein, let’s take a look at the 10 best villain actors in today’s movie world.

Why is Donald Trump obsessed with Bane in The Dark Knight Rises?

Is this supervillain the kind of role model we expect the Us president to adopt?

There are many superheroes an ailing American president might choose to associate with in an effort to pick up some much needed kudos. Frank Miller’s seminal graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns features a version of Superman who is in thrall to Ronald Reagan. In the film Iron Man 3, the fictional President Matthew Ellis is protected by Don Cheadle’s stars and stripes-sporting Iron Patriot. There’s even a version of the Avengers in Marvel comics that was put together by George W Bush.

With so many virtuous options available to him, it seems bizarre that Donald Trump has chosen the Batman supervillain Bane to cosy up to. Observers first noticed Trump’s fascination with Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, in which Tom Hardy’s hulking, masked brute seizes Gotham, when

Josh Trank confirms 2019 release date for Tom Hardy-led Fonzo

Josh Trank, the director of Fantastic Four, has confirmed a 2019 release date for his new film Fonzo – an Al Capone biopic starring Tom Hardy.

A film director’s career isn’t always a smooth series of events. Josh Trank has had a tough time of it lately, with his Fantastic Four movie not impressing pretty much anyone at all. Well, Trank is now back with his new film Fonzo, a drama about Al Capone starring Tom Hardy.

Confirming that the movie will be coming out in 2019, Trank took to Twitter, saying that his past failures have bought him to what he believes is the best work of his career: “Failure was a gift. It forced me to walk an honest path, and I’m way happier today than I ever was before. I have a film out later this year, starring Tom Hardy, called Fonzo that I wrote, directed, and edited.

Our new focus on development and production is about achieving global distribution, not just China.”

The development agreement was born from a long-standing personal friendship between Lee, who has previous executive roles at Idg Asia and the Weinstein Company, and Revolution’s co-executive producer Vince Totino. As well as international insight,

All 34 DC Comics Movies Ranked, Including ‘Shazam’

The DC Comics universe hasn’t quite flooded the big screen the way Marvel ones have in the past decade, but the DC brand has been hitting the big screen longer in the era of color, starting with the 1966 Adam WestBatman.” We ranked all those modern flicks, from “Batman: The Movie” to the DC Extended Universe’s “Wonder Woman,” “Justice League,” “Aquaman” and “Shazam.”

34. “Jonah Hex” (2010)

Despite the efforts of Josh Brolin and Michael Fassbender, this is one of the worst comic book movies of the modern era.

33. “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” (1987)

Christopher Reeve is by far the best Superman. But “Superman IV” is a bomb in every sense — partly because of its heavy-handedness about bombs. Nuclear bombs. The film finds Superman trying to eliminate the world’s nuclear threat, but his best intentions run afoul of a silly, badly dated villain named Nuclear Man.

Jared Leto Shares First Morbius Promo

Filming on Morbius has been underway for about five weeks now, and the production has so far yielded a fair few photos from the movie’s UK set. And in a new Instagram post, Jared Leto offers one more tease of the dark adventure to come.

The post includes a Gif-style video that shows a hooded Michael Morbius standing in the street and looking pretty static as people wander past him. Presumably, this footage was shot in the city of Manchester, which will be presented as New York in the movie itself. The promo also came with a moody message that could easily be mistaken for the tagline of a Batman film:

“Because no one else will walk this path…this place of shadows, where we do what must be done, no matter the cost. #Morbius”

New Morbius Set Video Shows The Living Vampire In Action

After Venom raked in some serious dough at the worldwide box office, it seemed as though Sony Pictures developed an insatiable appetite for Spider-Man villains appearing in movies entirely independent from the wall-crawler. In fact, not only is Tom Hardy expected to headline a Venom sequel, but production on Morbius is now also underway.

Admittedly, I’m surprised by the studio’s willingness to place such a character on marquees, but this creative decision is much easier to swallow than, say, the Aunt May spinoff they’d been contemplating a few years back. To their credit, it’s all coming together, unlike the failed Sinister Six team-up flick that also fell through (Sony’s half-baked attempt at forming their own Avengers would be an apt description).

If you’ve been following along with recent news pertaining to Morbius, then you’ve probably had a chance to view some photos emerging from the set.

‘Venom’ Squeezes Plenty Of Black Ink For Sony: No. 6 In 2018 Most Valuable Blockbuster Tournament

  • Deadline
When it comes to evaluating the financial performance of top movies, it isn’t about what a film grosses at the box office. The true tale is told when production budgets, P&A, talent participations and other costs collide with box office grosses and ancillary revenues from VOD to DVD and TV. To get close to that mysterious end of the equation, Deadline is repeating our Most Valuable Blockbuster tournament for 2018, using data culled by seasoned and trusted sources.

Venom had his villainous turn in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, but a solo effort was a tougher. Filmmaker Gary Ross took a shot at it, but the Marc Webb-directed reboot The Amazing Spider-Man took precedence. Finally, Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer and Tom Hardy found the handle around May 2017. Hardy wages an existential battle with the parasitic Venom throughout the movie, and the movie wasn’t that easy behind the scenes,

“Imagine a world evolved, designed and built to be experienced without sight; we did and it yielded a world — the world of ‘See,’” actor Jason Momoa said at an Apple keynote that previewed the launch of the commercial-free, paid-subscription streaming-video Apple TV+ service platform. “See” was among its upcoming shows highlighted in a sizzle reel presented at the Steve Jobs Theater in California.

Gotham Season 5 Episode 10 Review – ‘I Am Bane’

Martin Carr reviews the tenth episode of Gotham season 5…

There is something anti-climatic about ‘I Am Bane’ that makes it feel like an extended set up for the imminent season finale. Re-unification is happening, water supply purity is back to normal, yet there still exists one large spanner in the works. Old adversaries return, new ones are showcased while kidnapping, experimentation and hazy close ups attempt to instil dread.

When the latent comedy duo of Penguin and Riddler are attempting to escape in submarines, Barbara is going into labour and Doctor Strange is modifying everyone in sight Gotham feels predictable. Being pushed through the corridors brandishing weapons on the run from a new and improved Bane, this show really returns to those comic book roots as plausibility diminishes. If the Gcpd goes up in smoke, gets tear gassed or villains run rampant one more time I may lose my patience.

Gotham Season 5 Episode 10 Review: I Am Bane

Another Batman big bad joins the fray as Gotham prepares for the final No Man's Land battle.

This Gotham review contains spoilers.

Gotham Season 5 Episode 10

“I Am Bane?” You sure are, pal. Well, a Gotham facsimile anyway. This week, as Gotham speeds towards a finale, Bane makes his debut. Now, whether this Eduardo Dorrance version of Bane is the actually, for real Bane that Batman will face (and get his back broken by) is still up in there; it has to be said that this Shane West portrayal of the man who might break the Bat certainly has a Bane like feel. Well, a Dark Knight Rises Bane, anyway. Man, what do people have against lucha masks?

The coming of Bane to No Man’s Land begins with the Us military arriving and getting ready to open up Gotham City. In a Gilligan’s Island level yoinks, the presiding General

The star, 38, jokingly said he had been cast as the next 007 in a response to a tweet from an MTV News reporter, who wrote, “Between Robert Pattinson being cast in a Christopher Nolan movie and Bill & Ted 3 being officially announced, I feel like all my kids got into college today.”

Bane has a lot to say in this week’s Gotham, so it’s a damn good thing he’s more intelligible than Tom Hardy. (But just in case, the Cc button up there is your friend.)

In the Batman prequel series’ antepenultimate episode, airing Thursday at 8/7c on Fox, Gordon and Bruce — on the precipice of Gotham’s reunification — find themselves face-to-face with Eduardo Dorrance (played by Nikita‘s Shane West), who is newly transformed after receiving a very special sort of TLC from the ominous and mysterious Theresa Walker (Defiance‘s Jaime Murray).

Spider-Man And Carnage Feature In Epic Fan-Made Venom 2 Trailer

Even though I thought last year’s Venom movie left a lot to be desired, I’d definitely see a sequel. Much like how excitement surrounded seeing Eddie Brock’s first solo outing on the big screen, so, too, will there likely be a lot of hype surrounding a full-on Carnage in the followup.

If you saw the Sony-Marvel blockbuster, then you’re aware of how Woody Harrelson laid the groundwork for the next flick by showing up during the mid-credits scene. Granted, he was there as Cletus Kasady only, but said teaser was enough to get True Believers pumped.

So, now that we know Harrelson will unleash havoc as Carnage next time around, some fans aren’t wasting time showing us what the future may hold. Already, there’s been fantastic art imagining what the iconic villain may look like on celluloid, and now Billy Crammer has

Christoper Nolan Sets John David Washington, Robert Pattinson & Elizabeth Debicki to Lead His New Action Blockbuster

Update: Robert Pattinson is also in talks to join the cast, co-leading alongside John David Washington, reports Collider. Meanwhile, Variety reports Elizabeth Debicki has landed the other leading role. An older male co-star will also be part of the ensemble.

See the original story below.

When it was announced earlier this year that Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk follow-up had been set for a July 17, 2020 release, the jokes already started if Tom Hardy or Cillian Murphy would be the first to be cast in the project. Well, today brings our first announcement of the ensemble and it’s going to be a first-timer in the Nolan universe.

Variety reports that John David Washington–who had a major 2018 with Monsters and Men, The Old Man & the Gun and, most notably, BlacKkKlansman–has been set to lead the film. Rumors circulated recently that it would be a romantic thriller that was North by Northwest meets Inception,
