Angela Bassett joins Black Panther

It’s almost as if the cast of Marvel’s Black Panther is too good to be true. Then there’s a report that says not only is it true, it’s getting better as we speak. The film, which already stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, and Florence Kasumba, will now add Angela Bassett (American Horror Story) to the cast. 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.

Movie Review: Arrival

Arrival

Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 116 Minutes

“Where do they come from? What do they want?”

First contact, the introductory meeting between humanity and extraterrestrial life, was a common theme in the work of H. G. Wells, most notably in 1898’s The War of the Worlds and 1901’s The First Men in the Moon. The term itself, however, wasn’t coined until 1945, with American author Murray Leinster’s novelette, “First Contact.”

Since then, filmmakers have been fascinated by what that pivotal moment would be like, from The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) to Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), Independence Day (1996), and Contact (1997). Most recently, we’ve seen first contact — combined with the message from space trope — in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, and Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

Following the release of the final poster for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Disney has unveiled the final trailer for the highly anticipated film. The story follows a band of rebels, led by Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) as they attempt to steal the plans to the Death Star. Based on the look of the poster alone, one could say that this will be a very diverse film lead by a strong female character.

As previous trailers have suggested, the first Star Wars spinoff will bring a ground-war perspective to the franchise. Now this latest trailer reinforces that notion. Check it out below.

Michael Giacchino Replaces Alexandre Desplat To Score ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’

Rogue One Star Wars Jyn Erso vs Tie Fighter

It’s not as though Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is not used to changes. This past summer, the Star Wars spinoff went through a series of reshoots, with Tony Gilroy providing much of the rewrites to the script. At the time, the film had already completed principal photography, and rumors of 40% of the film were quickly shot down. While reshoots are just a part of any blockbuster tentpole, it has had a bit of a negative impact. In the wake of these reshoots, Oscar-winning composer Alexandre Desplat will no longer be composing the score for the film. But all is not lost as he will be replaced by another Oscar-winning composer, and one who is familiar with Disney and science fiction. A new report says Michael Giacchino will now conduct the score for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

More on the story below.

Rogue One Droid Header

Droids are an essential part of the Star Wars saga, and I am not sure if that universe could actually function without them. Now with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story being one of the first of the standalone stories to explore the universe outside the saga, it’s going to be exciting to see the new characters that will be joining the expansive universe.

We already got a small look at the characters of Rogue One just a few months back, and confirmation that Darth Vader would make an appearance in the film as well. One of those new characters that stand out is the towering droid K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), and it appears he won’t be the only new droid out in the film. In fact, he will be joined by another droid that looks vaguely familiar. More on the story, as well as a video and image, below.
