Star Wars Rogue One X-Wings

Apparently plenty of you rebelled over the weekend as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the number one film, grossing over $290 million worldwide. Many critics were overjoyed by Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars spinoff praising it for being new by mixing in the old — the new being focusing on the untold story of how the plans to the Death Star were stolen, the old being seeing digitized classic characters from the original trilogy. But the old also included some unused footage – that many of us didn’t even notice at the time – from the original 1977 film Star Wars: A New Hope. Check out the full story below. Minor spoilers follow. There’s your only warning.

Before we can speculate how she will appear, we have to warn you that MAJOR SPOILERS will follow after the jump. I repeat, MAJOR SPOILERS are ahead, so you’ve gotten your warning.

While spinoffs have a reputation of being written off as a cash grab scheme, the Star Wars universe has a wealth of material to work with. When it was first announced that there would be spinoffs, many wondered what or rather who they could be about. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, will be the first of those planned spinoffs. The film centers on a group of rebels who embark on the fabled mission to steal the plans to the Death Star. As storied as those troubling reshoots and issues with the script were, Rogue One is highly entertaining.

Star Wars Rogue One Creatures

Practical effects are coming back in a big way, and we have Star Wars to thank for that. The drive to have real physical effects gives a film a bit more believability, and we saw a lot of that in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now, Lucasfilm will continue that tradition in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

With the film just two weeks away from release, we are getting a new look at how they brought the creatures to life in a brand new behind-the-scenes featurette. From the stars of the film to director Gareth Edwards to the very people who created these creatures, find out more on what it was like to shoot the film with practical effects.

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Scribe Tony Gilroy To Make $5 Million Off Rewrites

Rogue One A Star Wars Story Empire header

Sometimes one man’s controversy is another man’s $5 million paycheck. At least for Tony Gilroy. As you may recall, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was embroiled in a lengthy controversy when the film entered a summer-long reshoot session that required the aid of Gilroy doing rewrites for the film. Normally, a reshoot for any film, especially one of this size, is not really a cause for concern, but because Disney and Lucasfilm were not pleased with the film’s tone, and that a rumored 40% of the film needed to be reshot in order to address some of its major issues, like tone.

Now that the reshoots are fully behind us and Rogue One is already having its press tour, we can look forward to seeing if these reshoots helped or hurt the first Star Wars spinoff. Regardless of what happens, though, Gilroy is getting a nice paycheck out of all of this. One that amounts to $5 million. More on the story below.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Jyn Erso vs Tie Fighter

It’s been no secret that Disney CEO Bob Iger isn’t expecting Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to have the same opening numbers that Star Wars: The Force Awakens had. Still, from an optimistic point of view, it could have stellar numbers because it is a part of the Star Wars franchise and the first of the many spinoffs we will get throughout the coming years.

Now box office projection numbers are coming in, and it puts Rogue One‘s opening numbers pretty high. According to reports, they could be as high as $130 million. More on the story below.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Before the year comes to an end, Disney and Lucasfilm will release Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first spinoff in the Star Wars cinematic franchise. It seems fitting that the film will center on the untold story of how a group of rebels obtain the plans to the Death Star. We’ve seen plenty of trailers showing us just how different the tone will be from the saga films. Director Gareth Evans takes audiences to a ground war, where rebels and stormtroopers battle through all sorts of terrain whether that’s in the slums or storming the beaches.

Now, just a few weeks before the film is released, we are getting another trailer. And this isn’t just a compilation of scenes we have seen before. It’s an international trailer and there is all sorts of new footage to check out. One thing that stands out is the fact that Jyn is holding what looks like a Kyber crystal. Check it out below.

‘xXx: Return Of Xander Cage’ Trailer: Vin Diesel Turns Adrenaline Rush Dial To 11

xXx Return of Xander Cage

Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for xXx: Return of Xander Cage starring Vin Diesel as the title character. Diesel makes a return to the role after taking a brief (if you could call it that) hiatus. It is the second sequel of the franchise, with the first, directed by Rob Cohen, being released in 2002. It was then followed up by its mediocre sequel, xXx: State of the Union, in 2005, where Lee Tamahori took Cohen’s place as director and Ice Cube took on the title role from an absent Diesel.

So after nearly a decade of “development,” Diesel is back as Xander Cage, and he is facing a threat unlike any other he has faced before when four deadly action junkies like himself come across a very dangerous weapon. So it is up to Cage and his new recruits to stop them. Check out the trailer below.
