Carrie Fisher Gets Top Billing on New The Rise of Skywalker Poster
A new poster for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has just been released, and its included credits posthumously give Carrie Fisher the top billing in a touching tribute to the franchise star. On what would have been Fisher's 63rd birthday, the poster was released along with the final trailer for the anticipated sequel. The new one-sheet shows us a variety of characters from the movie in various poses, and most of us can agree that it's a pretty awesome poster. Better yet, a closer look at the credits on the bottom lists Fisher's name first after the title, giving the late actress the top billing for her posthumous role as General Leia Organa. Following Fisher's name is Mark Hamill, who will be playing her storyline brother Luke Skywalker, in what will be his final time in the iconic role.

Sadly, Carrie Fisher left us in 2016, passing away way too

Trump Tunes In? Tweets Rebuke Of Bill Maher Guest During HBO Show

  • Deadline
Updated: President Trump tweeted a rebuke directly at a guest of Real Time with Bill Maher after apparently tuning-in to the HBO show on Friday during an especially savage anti-Trump episode. The Commander-in-Chief’s social media sniping was aimed not at the firebrand host but at Susan Rice, the former National Security Advisor under President Obama.

On air, Rice had methodically flayed the Gop incumbent for the ineptitude of his foreign policy moves and the long-range consequences of Trump’s most recent geo-political misadventures. Rice, plugging her new book, also said that Trump’s polarizing presence in the American political arena has made the country more vulnerable to foreign influence.

“What Putin’s genius is, is he understands that we are so divided internally,” said Rice, who was also U.N. Ambassador. “And I argue in my book, Tough Love, that our domestic political divisions are, in fact, our greatest national security vulnerability.

Robert Forster, Oscar-Nominated ‘Jackie Brown’ and ‘Twin Peaks’ Star, Dies at 78
Robert Forster, a character actor best known for “Twin Peaks” and his Oscar-nominated performance in Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown,” has died. He was 78.

The New York native, who suffered from brain cancer, died Friday in his Los Angeles home.

Forster made his first impression on Hollywood audiences in back-to-back movies set in the Army, the first being in 1967 playing the free-spirited, birthday-suit-loving Army private Ellgee Williams in John Huston’s “Reflections in a Golden Eye,” starring Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor. The next year, he played a half-breed scout in “The Stalking Moon” opposite Gregory Peck.

In the years that followed, Forster had roles in films like “The Lady in Red,” “The Black Hole,” “Delta Force” and “Peacemaker,” but it was Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown” that gave his career a boost… and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Colin Woodell Joins Kaley Cuoco’s HBO Max Series ‘The Flight Attendant’
The Purge alum Colin Woodell is set for a key role opposite Kaley Cuoco in HBO Max’s thriller drama series The Flight Attendant, starring and executive produced by Cuoco.

The Flight Attendant is a terrifying story of how an entire life can change in one night. Cassie (Cuoco), a flight attendant, wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man – and no idea what happened.

Woodell will play Buckley, an out of work actor and “whisky connoisseur,” whose boozy charm & go with the flow attitude is very attractive to Cassie.

Produced by Cuoco’s Yes, Norman and Berlanti Productions, the upcoming eight-episode Warner Horizon Scripted Television series is based on the novel by New York Times bestselling author Chris Bohjalian, adapted by Steve Yockey.

Greg Berlanti, Cuoco, Sarah Schechter, Steve Yockey, Meredith Lavender and Marcie Ulin are executive producers. Yes, Norman’s Suzanne McCormack is co-executive producer.

Air Force One Sequel Air Force Two In Development, Harrison Ford Returning

Here’s some unexpected news: a sequel to the 1997 action film Air Force One is in development, entitled Air Force Two. The project will apparently see Harrison Ford returning to the role of Us President James Marshall as he once again attempts to rid a plane of terrorists, or so we presume. Directed by Wolfgang Peterson, the original is a fondly remembered action movie mostly famous nowadays for Ford growling “get off my plane” to Gary Oldman’s terrorist leader (and some laughable CGI). So why on earth are they developing a sequel now?

Well, if Ford’s reprising his role as Marshall, term limits mean there’s no realistic way he could still be the actual Us President. However, perhaps a clue to how his life has developed may be in the title of the film. You see, Air Force Two is the air traffic control name of the

Gemini Man Review: Will Smith Movie Better Off Left in Past

Will Smith faces his younger self in Gemini Man, but it is a literal '90s high-concept that's dead-on-arrival in this high frame rate mess.

twitter

tumblr

While watching Gemini Man, I was taken back to the ‘90s, although not necessarily for the reasons you think. Sure, the movie stars one of that decade’s biggest names, and it’s definitely based on a relic from a pitch meeting of that era, but the real nostalgia here is for the point-and-click puzzlers it so eerily resembles with its deadly photography.

If you’re too young to have been blessed with classics like The 7th Guest or Tim Curry’s Frankenstein game, back in the day they hired Hollywood talent to act before blue screens that would be filled out with digital photographs of real sets. The characters were real, their conversations had conviction, but they were doomed by uncanny valley visuals and stilted presentation.

Ang Lee: A Visionary Director Comes Face-To-Face With 3D’s Dimming Prospects
Exclusive: Disappointment was written all over the face of filmmaker Ang Lee last week as he walked through a Los Angeles restaurant peering into the dimly lit corners in search of his waiting audience. The audience, in this case, was an interviewer eager talk to the three-time Oscar winner about his latest project, Gemini Man, the Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media production that opens Thursday with ambitions that go beyond the usual box-office imperatives.

With his 13th feature film, Ang Lee is trying to save 3D and reinvent it at the same time. Most directors have passion projects but Lee is a visionary pursuing a passion projection. It’s a pursuit that began with his brilliant Life of Pi (2012), continued with Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk (2016), and probably won’t stop with Gemini Man.

The quest has been fascinating at times but frustrating throughout. The latest frustration arrived in

Indiana Jones: 10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About The Temple Of Doom

After Lucasfilm saw massive success with Raiders of the Lost Ark, a sequel was quickly put into development. The film was called Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, which was released three years after the original film. Temple of Doom was actually a prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark, starting off in Shanghai in 1935. The film wasn’t as well-received as the original, but has still gotten positive reviews over the years.

Harrison Ford reprises his role of Indiana Jones, but is also accompanied by two other characters named Willie Scott (Kate Capshaw) and Short Round (Ke Huy Quan). This year marked the 35th Anniversary of The Temple of Doom but there are still some things you might be unaware of. Here is Indiana Jones: 10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About The Temple Of Doom.

Alden Ehrenreich Expected To Return As Han Solo In Future Star Wars Project

Alden Ehrenreich had a nearly impossible task to accomplish when he signed up to play Han Solo in Ron Howard’s underwhelming anthology film. Harrison Ford had only exited stage left three years before Ehrenreich took control of the Millenium Falcon, but it’s safe to say, especially when looking at its box office performance, that the wound had not healed.

With that said, despite its failures, Ehrenreich was one of the more well-received components of Solo and it looks like the House of Mouse agrees. And that’s because according to sources close to We Got This Covered – the same ones who told us about Ewan McGregor’s return as Obi-Wan back in May – the 29-year-old actor is expected to reprise his role as the infamous Star Wars grifter.

This will come as good news to the great many people who’ve supported the 2018 spinoff and campaigned for a sequel.

Ten Best: Lego Video Games… so far!

  • Nerdly
Here we go. Video games have been a large part of my recreational life since I was a young nipper and I was mashing the buttons of my Sega Master System joypad. Lego games have been something I’ve enjoyed for a long while too, and I always enjoy piking them up and playing them in local co-op. It’s a ton of fun. They’re very re-playable due to the sheer amount of collectables on offer, from bricks to barrels to characters to vehicles. You can complete the story and then go back to each level, pick your characters, and play all over again, unlocking new areas and new people to play as. How cool is that? Now, I know they’re not for everyone, but I dig the Lego games, and in a day where platform games aren’t as regular, I think they do a damn good job.

Blade Runner: 10 Things That Make No Sense

Ridley Scott's tech-noir Blade Runner provides a lot for viewers to unpack. It isn't solely comprised of the dreamy cinematography of flying cars weaving through skyscrapers and rain-soaked neon streets. It postulates that as humanity continues to advance to each new technological triumph, it doesn't stop to question the necessity of such actions, merely that the ends justify the means. Enter Replicants, artificial life forms that look so close to humans no one can tell the difference.
