‘Star Wars: Episode 8’ Director Rian Johnson Shares New Photos From the Set

Okay, before you get too excited, you should know that while these are most definitely new photos from the set of Star Wars: Episode 8, they don’t reveal anything mind-blowing. They’re just a couple of great photos shared by Rian Johnson, featuring a familiar piece of aircraft, a console and a mysterious First Order operative. The director released the photos to celebrate the halfway point in production, which means we’re that much closer to learning more about the upcoming sequel.

Original ‘Ghostbusters’ Will Return to Theaters This Summer

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot won’t be the only Ghostbusters movie hitting theaters this summer. If you’re itching to revisit Ivan Reitman’s 1984 comedy classic, then you might want to wait until June, when the original Ghostbusters returns to the big screen. The special re-release honors both the 32nd anniversary (sure, why not) of the film, as well as the release of Feig’s reboot, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.

It will cinematically haunt your soul, revealing the true insidious nature of your nostalgia like no horror you have ever known before. And with that Herzog-ian thought, we move onto today’s news: New Line is developing a movie based on Three’s Company.

Alamo Drafthouse CEO Tim League Has a Predictably Great Response to Texting in Theaters

The Alamo Drafthouse is built on a simple concept: great movies, good food, and most important of all — don’t talk or use your cell phone in the theater, or they will not hesitate to kick you out without a refund. Drafthouse CEO Tim League has devoted his brand to focusing on why we go to theaters in the first place, which is to watch movies, despite what some movie-goers and major corporate chains would have you believe. Following AMC’s briefly disastrous flirtation with allowing people to text in their theaters, League delivered a very thoughtful response, but if you’d rather watch a TL;DR version, you can see his predictably great reaction to this ill-conceived concept in the video above.

Erik Bauersfeld, Voice of Admiral Ackbar in ‘Star Wars,’ Has Died at 93

You may not immediately recognize the name Erik Bauersfeld, but you are undoubtedly familiar with his most famous line. The actor was the voice of Admiral Ackbar in Return of the Jedi, helping to popularize the alien’s signature phrase, “It’s a trap!” Bauersfeld has passed away at the age of 93, and though he’ll be remembered most for his role in Star Wars, the actor also worked with great directors like Guillermo del Toro and Steven Spielberg.

‘Batman vs. Superman’ Breaks a Bunch of Opening Records With $424 Million Worldwide

All those negative reviews predictably had zero effect on audiences, who flocked to see the long-awaited showdown between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel.

‘Star Wars: Episode 8’ Production Codename Revealed

Not too long ago, there was a rumor going around that Rian Johnson had a secret production codename for Star Wars: Episode VIII — a totally believable rumor, given that most major films shoot under secret titles and the practice is fairly common. Episode VIII’s codename is secret no more, as Carrie Fisher (and her insanely adorable dog, Gary Fisher) has revealed the sequel’s production title, and, like most codenames, it’s one you never would have guessed.

Like Sinister before it, Blumhouse Productions’ new horror film also boasts a famous leading man — this time Kevin Bacon — coping with something supernatural that’s tormenting his family. The Darkness incorporates Native American mythology, a creepy kid and some mysterious black handprints in the company’s latest bid to spook you senseless. And if that doesn’t sound too appealing, The Darkness comes from Greg McLean, the director of beloved Aussie horror flick Wolf Creek.
