AndrewSS7 has put together this great poster for Disney and Lucasfilm’s ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ which will be directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Michael Arndt and is scheduled for an unspecified 2015 release. Andrew’s description for the poster is as follows: “All posters are going to feature some after-episode-VI scenes. On this one you can observe Millenium Falcon and some X-Wings [flying over Endor?] being damaged after the Battle of Endor. Hope you like it, and stay tuned to see all the next posters from me!”
Last week it was announced that ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ will shoot at Pinewood Studios. All of the six previous live-action Star Wars movies have included UK production, in such famed studios as Elstree, Shepperton, Leavesden, Ealing and Pinewood. Production is already moving in to Pinewood in preparation for the early 2014 shoot with crew also being assembled. Casting is underway. Two sequels for ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ will follow in 2017 and 2019.
Last week 20th Century Fox announced that they’ve pencilled in a July 3th, 2015 release date for ‘Independence Day 2.’ Out and about on the promotional campaign for his latest summer blockbuster, ‘White House Down,’ director Roland Emmerich has now dropped a few hints to NY Daily News about what to expect from the much-anticipated sequel cast wise. “Will Smith can not come back because he’s too expensive, but he’d also be too much of a marquee name. It would be too much. We have like maybe half of the people that you know would know from the first film (in the script) and the other half people who are new.”
Alongside Will Smith, the 1996 original ‘Independence Day’ starred the likes of Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Randy Quaid, Mary McDonnell, Brent Spiner, James Duval and Vivica A. Fox. With the film set to start shooting early next year, expect to hear who might return for the sequel shortly. Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich are penning the script.
With filming now underway on ‘Hercules’ in Hungary, Dwayne Johnson has took to his Twitter account to tease his look in the film. Johnson captioned the above image with the following: “Hair/make up trailer – HERCULES. Asked how I got my shoulder slice scars. From a satisfied woman w/ long ass nails ;)”. Furthermore, Johnson also Tweeted this following look at some of Hercules’ weaponry, adding: “HERCULES. We have the best film designers in the world. Respects the mythology w/ great detail.”
’Hercules’ also stars Golden Globe-winner Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and Academy Award-nominee John Hurt. Rounding out the main cast is Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Aksel Hennie and Reece Ritchie. Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand) is directing the film.
