Disney CEO hints at more 'Star Wars' films beyond 2021

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 4 days, 13 hours ago

After purchasing the 'Star Wars' brand back in 2012, the Disney corporation made it clear that it wanted to continue the feature film franchise immediately, starting with Star Wars: Episode VII and then continuing with stand-alone features such as this year's 'Rogue One'. But how much life does the series have beyond Episode IX? Potentially a lot.

In a new article published in Variety, Disney Chief Bob Iger confirms that he's recently met with the keeper of the 'Star Wars' flame, Lucasfilm CEO Kathy Kennedy to "map out 'Star Wars' movies from 2021 and beyond" and that the studio is "looking beyond that date [2021] for ways to exploit the Jedi Knights and space adventurers that populate the fantasy film series". In the same article, it's revealed that Iger recently confirmed to a Goldman Sachs investor conference that they've found the writer for the as-yet unnannounced, but could-be Boba Fett standalone feature which is planned to hit cinemas in 2021.

 

For fans of that Galaxy far, far, away, it seems the stars shine quite brightly.

'Pacific Rim' surfaces on 4K Blu-ray next month

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 5 days, 9 hours ago

While fans of the 2013 monster action flick 'Pacific Rim' still have a way to go until the sequel hits theatres, at least they have one more event to look forward much, much sooner... so long as they have a 4K TV and an UltraHD Blu-ray player.

Starting next month, 'Pacific Rim' is set to be released on 4K UltraHD Blu-ray combo pack across the world, which includes the film remastered for 4K with HDR and Dolby Atmos audio, alongside a standard 1080p Blu-ray, director's commentary and an hour of extra features. Unfortunately, the film's 3D presentation will be absent from the pack, as well as the second Blu-ray disc of extra features - so you might want to hang onto those.

 

'Pacific Rim 4K' hits stores in the U.S. on October 4 in the U.S. and on October 19th in Australia. Look for our in-depth TweakTown review later next month!

Delorean owner summoned to court for driving over 88MPH

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 week, 3 days ago

We all know what happens when you drive a Delorean over 88 miles per hour - you see some serious shit. Well, at least in the 'Back to the Future' universe. But that hasn't stopped one owner of the classic vehicle from testing it out for himself. Except he had the long arm of the law on his tail.

According to the Daily Mail, Nigel Mills from Essex was clocked by a police speed gun travelling at 98MPH, but while the man is a self-confessed fan of the time travel series which the Delorean famously appeared in, he told media that he "was not trying to time travel." While Nigel was summoned to appear in a Magistrates' Court for his alleged crime of speeding, luckily for him the case was thrown out when the two police officers who clocked his vehicle didn't make an appearance.

 

The reconstituted DeLorean Motors factory announced plans earlier this year to take the car back into limited production using vintage parts.

New 'Star Trek' series 'Discovery' delayed by 4 months

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 week, 4 days ago

'Star Trek' fans looking to boldly go once again after the release of this year's 'Star Trek Beyond' need to be patient for just a little while longer.

According to Variety, CBS has confirmed that the hugely anticipated return of 'Star Trek' to the small screen will now premiere in May 2017, delayed from the originally announced January premiere. Speaking on the delay, executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller said that "Bringing 'Star Trek' back to television carries a responsibility and mission: to connect fans and newcomers alike to the series that has fed our imaginations since childhood. 'Star Trek' deserves the very best, and these extra few months will help us achieve a vision we can all be proud of." The delay comes as no surprise considering that filming isn't set to kick off until November in Toronto, Canada.

 

The new series will be set 10 years before the events of the original 1960's 'Star Trek' series, in the original timeline as opposed to the Kelvin timeline of the newly rebooted feature film series.

'Mad Max' goes low-def in 'Black & Chrome' edition

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 week, 4 days ago

While last year's Blu-ray version of the multi-award winning thrill ride 'Mad Max: Fury Road' didn't come with the promised black and white version of the film advocated by director George Miller, Warner Bros have made good on their promise and will release the experimental 'Black and Chrome' version of the movie to Blu-ray later this year.

Coming to Blu-ray in the U.S. on December 6th, the "surreal" version of the film comes on a two disc set accompanied by the previously released theatrical version of the film. Miller has previously called this version of the film as his preferred vision, describing it as "something about it seemed more authentic and elemental". Detailing how it came to pass, Miller continued "I asked Eric Whipp, the colorist, 'can I see some scenes in black and white with quite a bit of contrast?' They looked great. So I said to the guys at Warners, 'can we put a black-and-white version on the DVD?' There wasn't enough room... on another version with commentary and other features."

 

The Blu-ray also comes with a new introduction recorded by Miller.

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Sep 12, 2016 5:16 am

Last year's mega-success 'Jurassic World' not only rejuvenated the sleeping 'Jurassic Park' franchise, it also rocketed up the charts to become the third highest grossing film of all time. And now there's another two films on the way!

During an interview with Latino Review, JA Bayona said that "the whole 'Jurassic World' is a trilogy that Colin Trevorrow has envisioned. We're writing the second chapter, and it's very interesting where he's leading the story... ee are still six months ahead of shooting, and so far, so good. It's very exciting right now".

 

'Jurassic World' 2 is set to hit screens on on June 22, 2018 worldwide, but no date has yet been set for the third film - although 2020 is looking pretty good right about now.

Mel Gibson slams 'Batman v Superman', wasteful budgets

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Sep 7, 2016 1:53 am

Actor turned director Mel Gibson has never shied away from controversy, and while on the campaign trail for his new film 'Hacksaw Ridge' he's taken aim at excessive Hollywood budgets and one superhero film in particular.

Speaking from this year's Venice Film Festival, Gibson eloquently described this year's 'Batman v Superman' a "piece of shit", the director went on to confirm he's "not interested in the stuff. Do you know what the difference between real superheroes and comic-book superheroes is? Real superheroes didn't wear spandex. So I don't know. Spandex must cost a lot."

 

Continuing with the financial theme, Gibson continued with a bit of truth speak about ballooning Hollywood budgets saying "I look at them and scratch my head. I'm really baffled by it. I think there's a lot of waste, but maybe if I did one of those things with the green screens I'd find out different. It seems to me that you could do it for less. You're spending outrageous amounts of money, $180 million or more, I don't know how you make it back after the tax man gets you, and after you give half to the exhibitors."
