Watch 'Star Wars 7' Luke Skywalker Panel with Mark Hamill Live!

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 14 hours 57 min ago

When Star Wars Celebration kicked off Thursday morning with the opening panel, one of the "surprise guests" in attendance was Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, who showed up along with his Star Wars: The Force Awakens co-stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew. Today, Mark Hamill returns to the Celebration with his own panel at the Anaheim Convention Center from 7:00pm PM PT to 8:00 PM PT. In case you couldn't make the trek to Anaheim, we have the whole panel streaming live, right here.

Of course, Mark Hamill needs no introduction to Star Wars fans, since his portrayal of Luke Skywalker is the stuff of legend for fanboys. The actor was just 20 years old when Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope hit theaters in May 1977, having appeared in just a handful of movies and TV shows. He solidified his place in pop culture fandom by returning for Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, and now again with this year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Unfortunately, we haven't seen Luke in either of the trailers that were released, but we did get to hear him. Hopefully he'll shed more light on Luke's place in this new story.

What do you think Mark Hamill will reveal about Luke Skywalker during tonight's panel? Do you think he will give us some much-needed intel on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens story? Let us know what you think, and check out the live stream below:

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes to theaters December 18th, 2015 and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.

'Tron 3' Will Follow Quorra and Sam in the Real World

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Sat, 18/04/2015 - 22:51

Tron 3 was in the planning stages well before Tron: Legacy hit theaters in 2010, but five years passed before the sequel moved forward. Everything started to come together quite quickly once it was announced, with director Joseph Kosinski set to return along with leads Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde. In a recent interview with Collider, Olivia Wilde claims that the only delay on the movie was breaking the story. They needed to get it right before they prematurely told everyone it was happening. She then confirmed that the sequel will pick up shortly after the events seen in Tron: Legacy, with a story that revolves around her character Quorra existing in the real world alongside Sam Flynn. About the screenplay she says:

"I love this character of Quorra so much and I've built her with Joe Kosinski and we took her such a long way from what was written to what we made. I mean, I fought for her to be this kind of androgynous child and that's so not what you typically see in these movies, so I'm so grateful that the producers let me play with her and make her this strange little being. And I'm really excited to see what happens to that character when put into the real world. I think it's an interesting concept. I'm fascinated by all discussions of AI, and especially now today and now with virtual reality becoming something that's like a personal device, I think it's the time to tell this story."

Olivia Wilde went onto confirm that the movie will shoot this October. She also explains more about the seeming delay on Tron 3. She states:

"I think there's a lot of people really excited to make it happen within Disney and in the world, and we've been dreaming of making it since we finished Legacy so I would be thrilled. The delay has only ever been story, finding the right story. It hasn't been anything else. There's never been a time where we wanted to go and then schedules got in the way. It's only been like, 'That's not the right story.' So, in the past year, the right story kind of came together and we felt, 'Oh, this actually - this might be the right one to tell.' And, you know, there's still a lot to be done before it could actually happen, but the fact that there's a goal of this year to start is really exciting."

Olivia Wilde wouldn't reveal any more about the storyline, or talk about what dangers Quorra may face in the real world. She did say there was a script completed, and that she has read it. At this time, Disney has yet to officially announce Tron 3. But trust us, it's definitely happening. Are you as excited about it as Olivia Wilde?

Tron 3 comes to theaters in 2016 and stars Olivia Wilde, Cillian Murphy, Garrett Hedlund, Bruce Boxleitner, Cindy Morgan, Nathan Corddry. The film is directed by Joseph Kosinski.

'Howard the Duck' Movie May Happen at Marvel Says George Lucas

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Sat, 18/04/2015 - 22:16

One of the funnest parts of Guardians of the Galaxy was when Howard the Duck showed up at the end for his post-credit cameo. No one was expecting it, and fans loved to see the talking space mallard return from obscurity. Ever since, there have been murmurs that Marvel might actually make a standalone Howard the Duck movie sometime in the future. Someone who absolutely agrees with that idea is producer of the original 1986 movie George Lucas.

Howard the Duck was one of the biggest bombs of the 80s. Though, it has since grown a pretty healthy cult audience. Speaking with Stephen Colbert about the calamity that was the 1986 Howard the Duck, George Lucas places all the blame on the costume, but goes onto say that he 'believes' Marvel will bring the duck back for his own solo adventure:

"You can't put a dwarf in a duck suit and make it work. I have a feeling that Marvel is gonna redo it because of the technology we have today. The thing about art is that it's based on technology. [At the time], they said it couldn't be done, and they were right.

Though its coming on a full year since we first saw Howard the Duck reintroduced to audiences as part of the MCU, Marvel has not acknowledged or even teased a standalone movie. Director James Gunn has also denied those rumors in the past, saying it was just something fun he wanted to do for his movie, and it held no implications for anything planned in the future. Howard the Duck has since returned in a new Marvel comic book series, which you can currently pick up at your friendly neighborhood comic book story.

If a Howard the Duck remake were to happen, we wouldn't see it until 2020 at the earliest, which is only five years away. Is Howard's return being planned for Marvel Phase 4? Maybe he'll get a second cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy 2? We just don't know!

Howard the Duck was released August 1st, 1986 and stars Lea Thompson, Jeffrey Jones, Tim Robbins, Ed Gale, Chip Zien, Tim Rose, Steve Sleap, Peter Baird. The film is directed by Willard Huyck.

'Star Wars Rogue One': Is Ben Mendelsohn in or Out?

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Sat, 18/04/2015 - 21:38

As Star Wars Celebration continues to rage on in Anaheim, California, the one movie we've yet to hear anymore about is the first official spinoff titled Rogue One. While we know Felicity Jones is the lead and that Gareth Edwards will direct, we don't know anything about the story at this point. Gareth Edwards is showing up for a Star Wars Celebration panel along with second spinoff director Josh Trank on Sunday. So maybe we'll learn more there. Today, Coming Soon caught up with actor Ben Mendelsohn, rumored to be the male lead in Rogue One. Sadly, he had little to add to the conversation except enthusiasm for the project.

Last seen in this year's adventure yarn Black Sea and this past week's thriller Lost River, Ben Mendelsohn is heavily rumored to be one of the main characters in Rogue One. He seems to love that idea, and would sign on in a heartbeat. But he claims the rumors we've all heard are not true. He says:

"All I can say is that I've heard these rumors myself and I would be thrilled if something like that were to come to pass, and I can say with all truthfulness that there's nothing definitive to those rumors. So who knows?"

The thing we've learned about all of this recent blockbuster casting is that actors will lie. Its very possible that Ben Mendelsohn is signed on. But its hard to get too excited about it just yet, as we have no idea what character he'd be playing, or what his role in the mystery story will even be. Asked if he'd blindly jump into the movie, or if he would have to read a script before accepting the part, he states:

"I'm a huge fan of it, but I don't know. I'm not sure."

The actor goes onto tease that everyone will know if he auditioned for a role and if he landed it shortly after it actually happens. This was all said with a smile and nod of the head. We're sure to hear more about Rogue One as Star Wars Celebration continues, so stay tuned for the director's panel taking place between 11am and 12 pm (PST) tomorrow (at this time, it doesn't look like this will be streaming live, but that may change)!

Rogue One comes to theaters December 16th, 2016 and stars Felicity Jones. The film is directed by Gareth Edwards.

'Guardians 2' Codename Is 'Guardians 3000', What Does It Mean?

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Sat, 18/04/2015 - 20:31

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 has a production codename. As revealed by Production Weekly, it is Guardians 3000. While it isn't know if this will remain as the official title of the movie, it certainly has kicked up a lot of speculation amongst fans. What could the title possibly mean, and who is it in reference too?

It turns out that the title Guardians 3000 is quite relevant to the Marvel comic books upon which Guardians of the Galaxy is based. While it connects to the ongoing mythos, there's also the fact that Marvel currently has a standalone Guardians 3000 comic book series separate from their main Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. It showcases the 'original' members of the interstellar superheroes. Does this mean we might see anyone from Adam Warlock, Galactus, Nova, Odin, Quasar, Rick Jones, the Silver Surfer and/or The Watcher in the sequel? We have no idea, but anything is possible!

Its far too early to read anything too heavily into this latest title reveal, and it may just be a placeholder sent out by Marvel to keep fans guessing as to what comes next. This title does hint that we'll see more new characters arriving alongside Star-Lord and his team, which has long been hinted at. The current Guardians 3000 line-up consists of Yondu (who was introduced in 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy and is played by Michael Rooker), Vance Astro (a.k.a Major Victory), Martinex, Charlie 27 and Starhawk. If we go by the original comic book canon, the first team was established in 1969, and is actively trying to save the universe in the 31st Century. As the new movie series takes place in our own current timeline, its likely that there won't be continuity between the sequel and comics.

It's speculated that the film will most likely bring in Vance Astro, who is an unfroze contemporary U.S. Air Force pilot-turned-intergalactic hero of the future. In the 31st Century, he is usually the defacto leader of Guardians of the Galaxy, and is armed with psychokinetic powers. Considering that he is an earthling in the comics, we can probably rule him out as Star -Lord's dad, who has already been revealed as an alien. Unless they drastically change his backstory for the MCU. One person that could definitely be Quill's father is Starhawk. When Peter's mother describes his father, she calls him an 'Angel'. This fits with his current appearance in the Guardians 3000 comic book. And director James Gunn may have already planted a great Easter egg, with Starhawk showing up in the 8-bit video game that was included with the special features on the Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-ray.

We'll have to wait until at least late 2016 to discover exactly what Guardians 3000 is in reference to and if it is, in fact, the official title. You should be reminded that all of the Marvel movies up until this point have had code names. And there isn't too much stock put into their meaning, though you can see how they definitely relate to the titles:

Rasputin (Iron Man 2)

Manhattan (Thor)

Frostbite (Captain America: The First Avenger)

Group Hug (The Avengers)

Caged Heat (Iron Man 3)

Thursday Mourning (Thor: The Dark World)

Freezer Burn (Captain America: The Winter Soldier)

Full Tilt (Guardians of the Galaxy)

After Party (Avengers: Age of Ultron)

Bigfoot (Ant-Man)

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 comes to theaters May 5th, 2017 and stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista.

'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Gets November 2016 Release

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Sat, 18/04/2015 - 18:56

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk has been given a November 11, 2016 release date from TriStar Pictures, which puts the military drama in theaters for Veterans Day. Based on the acclaimed novel by Ben Fountain, the movie will be a groundbreaking, cinematic event and stars Garrett Hedlund, Steve Martin, Kristen Stewart, Ben Platt, Vin Diesel, Chris Tucker and Joe Alwyn. Director Ang Lee plans to redefine the possibilities of cinema with the film, engaging the audience with an advanced cinematic experience.

Ang Lee will use state-of-the-art Sony cameras while shooting Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, utilizing native 3D and high resolution. He will also make history with a frame rate that seemed impossible just months ago. Ang Lee hopes to create a new way for audiences to experience drama with the heightened sensation a soldier would really feel on the battlefield and on the home front.

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk tells the true-life story of Bravo Company and 19-year-old private Billy Lynn, who survived a harrowing Iraq battle captured by news cameras. Billy and his squad are brought home by the US administration for a promotional tour, culminating at the spectacular halftime show of a Thanksgiving Day football game, all while facing an imminent return to the war. Almost the entire movie takes place during the day of the game, with flashes back to the underlying events and Billy's heroism.

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk is currently shooting with producers Marc Platt, Ink Factory's Stephen Cornwell, Rhodri Thomas and Simon Cornwell, and Ang Lee. Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk is a partnership between TriStar, Studio 8, Bona Film Group and Film4. At this time, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk has no direct competition on November 11. But the Marvel movie Doctor Strange opens the week before. And the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will open the following week.

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk comes to theaters November 11th, 2016 and stars Garrett Hedlund, Steve Martin, Kristen Stewart, Ben Platt, Vin Diesel, Chris Tucker. The film is directed by Ang Lee.

Billy and his squad are brought home by the US administration for a promotional tour, culminating at the spectacular halftime show of a Thanksgiving Day football game, all while facing an imminent return to the war. Almost the entire movie takes place during the day of the game, with flashes back to the underlying events and Billy's heroism.

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk is currently shooting with producers Marc Platt, Ink Factory's Stephen Cornwell, Rhodri Thomas and Simon Cornwell, and Ang Lee. Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk is a partnership between TriStar, Studio 8, Bona Film Group and Film4. At this time, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk has no direct competition on November 11. But the Marvel movie Doctor Strange opens the week before. And the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will open the following week.

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk comes to theaters November 11th, 2016 and stars Garrett Hedlund, Steve Martin, Kristen Stewart, Ben Platt, Vin Diesel, Chris Tucker. The film is directed by Ang Lee.

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Clip Teases 'Avengers 2' Crossover

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Sat, 18/04/2015 - 17:29

There are only 2 episodes of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. left before Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters everywhere. And as expected, the latest clip from this week's upcoming episode The Frenemy of My Enemy is clearly setting up a crossover between the show and the blockbuster sequel. Agent Coulson and his team are planning a strike against Hydra...Which is leading them right to Baron Wolfgang von Strucker!

In The Frenemy of My Enemy, a dangerous new alliance is formed! Coulson and Hunter must turn to the last person anyone would ever expect...And that is Grant Ward! As the war between S.H.I.E.L.D. factions continues, Skye and Lincoln will also find themselves drawn into this conflict. The Frenemy of My Enemy was written by Monica Owusu-Breen and directed by Karen Gaviola.

In this latest clip, we see Agent Fitz being chased down by rogue agents. But he leads them right into the side of Coulson's cloaked jet. As Coulson and Fitz take flight, Fitz is reunited with Mike Peterson (aka Deathlok), who sits in the pilot's seat. After thanking Coulson for his tips on evading his tail, Coulson explains that they are gong to need find Skye. They don't have any leads, but Hyrda might. Hydra has a new head by the name of Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, who is researching powered people. Coulson's research claims he is very obsessed. The team needs to break into Hyrda...And their only hope is Ward!

This, of course, is leading up to the Avengers big raid on Strucker's castle in the opening action scene of Avengers: Age of Ultron! Take a look at this exciting crossover clip, and then check out the first photos from next week's episode The Dirty Half Dozen, which will lead right into Avengers 2 when it debuts on April 28!
