"You know, it's not like a long journey didn't happen but what amazes me is how little has actually changed from the first cut other than tightening. Little changes to the final battle, that was really it. I think that what I ended up finding about the final battle was I was hitting emotional points for Diana that I really wanted to hit but I felt a craving for some other kinds of emotional gratification »

20 hours ago
The Alamo Drafthouse is considered one of the most revered movie theaters in America, which has become well known for its hard-line stance on in-theater talking that has lead to a string of fan-favorite anti-talking PSA videos. The theater certainly isn't afraid to push the envelope, even if it brings a few trolls out of the woodwork, which was the case recently when the Austin, Texas theater announced a "women only" screening of Warner Bros.' Dceu adventure Wonder Woman. While the screening was praised by many, it also lead to a number of males voicing their frustration on the theater's social media pages. Here's the official description of this screening from the Alamo Drafthouse website.
"The most iconic superheroine in comic book history finally has her own movie, and what better way to celebrate than with an all-female screening? Apologies, gentlemen, but we're embracing our girl power and saying »

20 hours ago
Alright, it's the 40th anniversary of Star Wars and we are going to celebrate with a little bit of controversy. Last week we reported that comedian Jamie Stangroom was on a quest to find the actor who portrayed the clumsy Stormtrooper from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope and is responsible for one of the most legendary movie bloopers of all time. The scene in question has a battalion of Stormtroopers entering a room, with one of them hitting their head as he enters. Stangroom's documentary, The Empire Strikes Door is attempting to tackle the issue of there being three actors taking credit for the blooper over the years. And now one of them, Laurie Goode is making the rounds claiming that he is indeed the Stormtrooper ahead of the release of Stangroom's mini-documentary.

The Jetsons Movie Lands Sausage Party Director
21 hours ago
After gestating in development for years as a live-action adaptation, Warner Bros.' animated adaptation of The Jetsons is now moving forward. The studio's Warner Animation Group has brought on Conrad Vernon, who most recently directed Sony's R-rated Sausage Party, to take the reins of this animated movie. The filmmaker has been brought on to develop the project, with an eye towards directing it himself. It isn't clear if he will be working with another writer or if he will write the script himself.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, with the filmmaker coming aboard keeping this project firmly entrenched within the Warner Animation Group banner. That wasn't always the case, though, with the studio previously trying to put together a Jetsons live-action movie for many years, with directors such as Adam Shankman and Robert Rodriguez attached to the project, with the later working from a script by The Goldbergs creator Adam F. Goldberg. »
Why Luke's Lightsaber Is Green in Return of the Jedi
21 hours ago
Many fans believe that a Jedi's lightsaber color has to do with their powers or personality. But that's not the case. Especially when it came time for George Lucas to pick out the color for Luke Skywalker's new lightsaber in Return of the Jedi, after he lost his father's old blue one in Empire Strikes Back. The bright green blade had nothing to do with Luke's prowess, nor just how strong he was with the force. There was a much more pragmatic process behind the decision.
Luke's original lightsaber meant a great deal to the young Jedi. But he could never call it his, as it didn't exactly call out to him. And he didn't make it himself. He was gifted the lightsaber by Obi-Wan Kenobi in 1977's A New Hope, which celebrates its 40th Anniversary today. In the Star Wars canon, that lightsaber isn't considered 'Luke's lightsaber'.

During a Q&A session following a recent screening of the black and white version of Logan, dubbed Logan Noir, director James Mangold said he would be "shocked" if the studio didn't develop the character further, hinting that she could surface in another X-Men movie down the road.
