Video: Josh Gad Recruits An All-Star Cast To Pry ‘Star Wars’ Spoilers From Daisy Ridley

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

It appears that Josh Gad persistently trying to pry Star Wars: The Last Jedi spoilers from Daisy Ridley will be an ongoing thing. For the first and second videos, it’s just been him trying to get answers to his questions. When that was going nowhere, he enlisted the help of his Murder on the Orient Express co-star Dame Judi Dench. The video seemed to have the answers to his questions, but it cut off at the right moment.

Obviously we aren’t getting anywhere with Gad leading the questioning, so he’s recruited some extra help. Let’s just say there is a bit of a crossover going on with stars and filmmakers from Murder on the Orient Express, Jurassic World, The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Hamilton, and even Star Wars: The Force Awakens questioning her. And no, I’m not talking about Daisy Ridley, herself. Check out who else wants to know more about Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the video below.

J.J. Abrams Brings In Anna Foerster To Direct ‘Lou’
eelyajekiM   |  

Bad Robot

There has been growing frustration over the lack of quality female directors not being given the chance to direct tentpole films. There may be a few exceptions, but when Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy says things like “We want to make sure that when we bring a female director in to do Star Wars, they’re set up for success. They’re gigantic films, and you can’t come into them with essentially no experience,” it is easy to see why the call for female directors to helm blockbuster films is getting louder.

So rather than just be vocal during the campaign or wait around to do something, J.J. Abrams, and his Bad Robot production company are bringing in Outlander director Anna Foerster to helm a drama called Lou. Find out more about this film below.

Movie Review: Star Trek Beyond: A Sequel That Truly Soars
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Star Trek Beyond header image

Star Trek Beyond
Director: Justin Lin
Screenwriters: Simon Pegg and Doug Jung
Cast: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Idris Elba, and Sofia Boutella
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 120 minutes
Release Date: July 22, 2016

It’s been three years since we last left Captain James Tiberius Kirk and his young, hip, sexy rebooted USS Enterprise crew sifting through the charred rubble of the embarrassingly-flawed and intelligence-insulting Star Trek Into Darkness. When the first J.J. Abrams-directed Star Trek feature was released in 2009, it thrilled me as both a lover of well-executed blockbuster entertainment and someone who has grown up enjoying the adventures of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and company because its creative and commercial success ensured that future generations would have their own Enterprise to follow into the cinematic cosmos. Into Darkness pretty much undid every detectable trace of that progress in the span of a mere two hours.

The thought of the sequels that would inevitably follow filled me with the sort of trepidation one often experiences as they prepare to enter an old house that has been abandoned since the previous owners were horribly murdered twenty years ago….
