Ok, guys, brace yourselves for the most bracing, gripping, tantalizing, galvanizing, ineffably world-altering news you’re likely to hear or read or speak all day (ok, given, it’s a slow news day so all of that could change if news leaks that Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be cast in his 3,000th movie of 2013, in which case that will become the biggest entertainment news...

It's been about a year since the Disney shocked the world, or movie geeks at least, by purchasing LucasFilm. Immediately after that staggering news, the studio announced that they would begin development on a brand new Star Wars trilogy with J.J. Abrams at the helm of the Episode VII.

While it seems that the box office is almost entirely dominated by superhero films, we are likely approaching a point of Star Wars pop cultural saturation.  In addition to the wildly anticipated Star Wars Episode VII (the first of an all-new sequel trilogy) as well as a slew of one-off character spin-off films, we are also getting a Star Wars TV...

We're still waiting for some sort of official casting announcement for Star Wars: Episode 7, which will be coming soon (the film is supposed to start shooting in early 2014).

History’s greatest monster (aside from Jimmy Carter), J.J. Abrams, recently took time out from his busy schedule of taking once-beloved science fiction franchises and making flashily brain-dead reboots of them (spoiler: seriously, super-Khan-blood to cheat any form of death?  Really?) to talk about his approach to directing Star Wars Episode VII.

Saoirse Ronan is one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood, if the completely unverifiable rumor mill that loudly fuels the internet like a gigantic hamster-wheel is any indication: not only was she reportedly up for—and then reportedly passed—on the role of Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age of Ultron (the sequel to one of the most financially successful films in human...

As we wait for the hard facts to slowly, oh so slowly, leak like drips and drabs from the production of unfortunately J.J. Abrams-directed Star Wars Episode VII (Will Ryan Gosling star?!?  Will the Skywalker and Solo kids show up?!?), we must now subsist, like beggars, on the rumor-crumbs that drift down from the table of actual fact.  And today’s tasty breadcrumb?  The possible...

Though the film should be coming into shape shortly, Star Wars: Episode 7 has been the subject of a lot of rumors, but very few official announcements. The thought was that it would come out mid-May -- as all other Star Wars movies have -- and would battle against a crazy amount of competition (like The Avengers: Age of...

Over the weekend, J.J. Abrams took time out from diluting preexisting sci-fi film franchises to speak at the Produced By Conference in Los Angeles, where, of course, Abrams’ involvement as the director of Star Wars Episode VII came up.  And, as always, Abrams made a point to be as relatively vague and ambiguous as possible when discussing his approach to the film.
