There are so many directions to go with possible 'Star Wars' spin-offs, and though one of the most appealing things about 'Star Wars - Episode 7' is that it wouldn't be more back-story, there's a rumor we may get stand-alone adventures from some of the characters in the universe. And word is that Yoda might get his own movie.
'World of Warcraft' is coming to the big screen, and 'Moon and 'Source Code' director Duncan Jones has been tapped to helm the project for Legendary Pictures. Though most video game film adaptations are lousy, this could be the best one yet.
For the last couple years we've seen almost all of the classic horror films of the 1970's and 80's get the remake treatment. 'Gremlins' was one of the rare holdouts, but it looks like its defenses are failing as the latest rumors suggest we may get a new 'Gremlins' film.
For whatever reason, 'Star Wars' fans petitioned the White House wanting the United States to make a Death Star. That the country our the government has no interest in making one is no surprise. But the Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget Paul Shawcross responded to the petition in the nerdiest way possible.
Stuntman turned director David R. Ellis has passed away at the age of 60. He was prepping his next movie when he died suddenly of unknown causes. Though Ellis would never be considered an auteur, his no-nonsense approach and eye for good schlock made him one of the best B-movie directors in the business.
Currently, the big Consumer Electronics Show (or CES) is taking place, and we've been hearing some interesting stories coming out of it, but the coolest thing so far is this new trailer for Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim.' Though it features the same narrative and much of the footage from the last trailer, what's new is even more monster and robot mayhem.
Though 'Brave' was a welcome respite, Pixar has gone sequel crazy, as their previous two films were sequels and this summer we're getting a prequel in 'Monsters University.' But the studio is also working on three non-sequels for the future, and have released images from each of them.
Charles Durning, one of the great character actors of the modern era, has passed away at the age of 89 from natural causes. If the name doesn't ring a bell, his work should as he's been a reliable supporting player in cinema and television for decades.
Christmas has come a little early for 'Star Trek' fans, as J.J. Abrams' sequel 'Star Trek into Darkness' has given Empire Magazine some new stills from the movie. They suggest that the big summer movie will have action, and costumes.
If things went according to plan, Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' would be hitting theaters next week on Christmas Day, and we might be having a conversation about how Leonardo DiCaprio could be up for both the Best Actor and Supporting Actor Oscar. Instead, the picture moved to May, and we're a little less than six months away from its release. But now there's a new trailer to hold us over.
