Billie Lourd Originally Auditioned for Rey in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

We’re only months away from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and already, it’s beginning to feel like a film that will be unbearably sad for all the wrong reasons. The loss of Carrie Fisher will be made fresh by her appearance in the upcoming film, and seeing her alongside Mark Hamill for the last time  —  one assumes, anyways  —  will be a touching moment for any fans of the Star Wars franchise. No less touching will be the opportunity for Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd to share the screen with her one last time. All in all, The Last Jedi will be the ultimate Star Wars family reunion, biological and otherwise.

‘Wonder Woman’ Writer Jason Fuchs Will Tackle ‘Robotech’ for Sony

Let’s brainstorm for a moment. A year ago, I tell you that Sony Pictures is giving $100 million dollars to the screenwriter of Pan and the director of Mama to make a blockbuster summer movie. Furthermore, this $100 million dollar movie will be based on a popular animated television series from the 1980s. What is your gut reaction? Are you surprised? Dismayed? Cautiously optimistic? Now what if I tell you the exact same thing, but instead of Pan and Mama, I mention Wonder Woman and It, two of the most critically and commercial successful movies of 2017? Just goes to show you how much things can change in Hollywood over just a few months.

Watch Rami Malek Perform as Freddie Mercury for ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’s Live Aid Concert Scene

When Rami Malek was cast as Freddie Mercury in Bryan Singer’s Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, one question was on everyone’s mind: Can he do it? Mercury was the kind of talent that comes along once a century, if that, and while Malek is no doubt a great actor, there’s a lot of pressure that comes with portraying one of the modern world’s greatest musicians. So, how is he doing it? Well, see for yourself.

Excellent: Mike Myers in Talks for a Role in Bryan Singer’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

Bryan Singer’s Queen biopic looks like it’ll get a little meta. Word on the street is that Mike Myers, who, along with Dana Carvey, immortalized the car sing-along to “Bohemian Rhapsody” in Wayne’s World, is in talks for a role in Singer’s movie about the band, which stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury.

Georgie From ‘IT’ Has Some Words for People Who Talk During Movies

The Alamo Drafthouse is a fun, chill venue full of burgers and boozy milkshakes that provides one of the most unique moviegoing experiences out there, but they’re very strict about two things: That talking and texting during the movie nonsense? Don’t do it. Just take it from Georgie, the ridiculously cherubic child from this fall’s horror sensation It.

Liam Neeson Is Officially Retiring From Making Liam Neeson Action Thrillers

Liam Neeson has a particular set of skills, a set of skills has acquired over a very long career. In recent years, those skills have frequently been put to use in films where Neeson plays fathers and former government professionals burdened by personal demons, who wear leather jackets and yell at bad guys over cell phones. But Liam Neeson is, in his own words, “sixty-f—ing-five,” and it appears that he is officially getting too old for this s—.

Composer Johann Johannsson Has Officially Left ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Completely

Johann Johannsson and Denis Villeneuve are one of those rare director-composer powerhouses that, until a few months ago, seemed inseparable. Johannsson scored Prisoners, Sicario, and Arrival, and also signed on to provide a soundtrack to Blade Runner 2049. About a month ago, it was announced that Hans Zimmer and his cohort Benjamin Wallfisch would be joining the soundtrack crew, with Johannsson perhaps taking a backseat. As it turns out, Johannsson has exited the vehicle completely.

J.J. Abrams Officially Returning for ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

We knew it wouldn’t take Lucasfilm long to find a new director for Star Wars: Episode IX. When Colin Trevorrow parted ways with the studio last week, it seemed obvious that there would be two names at the top of their list: Rian Johnson, director of The Last Jedi, and J.J. Abrams, Star Wars executive producer and director of The Force Awakens. Johnson took his name out of the running pretty early on, and now it seems as though Abrams is stepping up to the plate.
