Star Wars The Last Jedi image 09

So now that we’ve watched the first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi a few hundred times (or more) and got a tease of the panel from Star Wars Celebration today, it’s time for some good ol’ fashioned photos.

As we all know, The Last Jedi is the second installment of a brand new trilogy, but director Rian Johnson isn’t being as secretive about the plot as his predecessor J.J. Abrams when he directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, Johnson is being as vague as possible so not to spoil the entire thing, but he did reveal that The First Order will be making “Big Moves” that could strengthen their place within the Galactic Senate. Check out what he had to say below, plus a few new photos from the trailer that dropped this morning.

As with every home entertainment release for a major Marvel Studios’ film, bonus features will include a small preview of upcoming films. No, there won’t be any new footage; instead, we’ll be seeing concept art that gives us an idea of what to expect.

That is no different in Doctor Strange, whose bonus features include sneak peek concept art from Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther. Check out the images below.

Angela Bassett joins Black Panther

It’s almost as if the cast of Marvel’s Black Panther is too good to be true. Then there’s a report that says not only is it true, it’s getting better as we speak. The film, which already stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, and Florence Kasumba, will now add Angela Bassett (American Horror Story) to the cast. More on the story below.

Blu-ray Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D Collector’s Edition
Empress Eve   |  

Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D Collector’s Edition title

Star Wars: The Force Awakens
3D Collector’s Edition Blu-ray
Writer: Lawrence Kasdan & J.J. Abrams and Michael Arndt
Director: J.J. Abrams
Cast: Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Max von Sydow, Gwendoline Christie
Studio: Walt Disney Pictures
Release Date: November 15, 2016

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was one of my favorite movies of 2015, and is a film I’ve written a lot about here — bottom line, I love it! Does it have its flaws? Sure, but nothing that I feel hampers the enjoyment of watching it. While there are those who feel it’s a retread of the original trilogy, I believe that it’s a worthy addition to the Star Wars universe.

The film was released in Blu-ray back in April and included a host of bonus features that delved into the making of the sequel. But, sadly, it didn’t include feature-length audio commentary, which is an extra I love on home video releases, especially for an extravaganza like this. Now, Disney has released The Force Awakens as a 3D Blu-ray Collector’s Edition that does include commentary from J.J. Abrams, which to me makes this set worth getting. It also includes the original bonus features, along with several all-new featurettes. So, if you don’t already own this, definitely grab this collector’s edition.

Movie Review: Queen Of Katwe
eelyajekiM   |  

Queen Of Katwe

Queen Of Katwe
Director: Mira Nair
Screenwriter: William Wheeler
Cast: Madina Nalwanga, David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Kabanza, Taryn Kyaze, Ivan Jacobo, Nicolas Levesque, Ethan Nazario Lubega, Ronald Ssemaganda, Nikita Waligwa, Edgar Kanyike, Esther Tebandeke
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 124 Minutes
Release Date: September 23, 2016 (Limited) | September 30, 2016 (Nationwide)

Looking past all the animated features, Marvel superheroes, and Star Wars films, Disney has also been making a name for itself telling inspiring sports stories. Queen Of Katwe is just one of those films that we rarely see from a major studio, but when they put it out, you can be sure they have made every effort to make sure that it will strike an emotional chord or, in this case, make the right moves. For this film is no ordinary based on a true story about any sport, it’s about a young girl who makes it out of the slums of Uganda by playing the game of chess. A mind game so to speak where your next move could be your last. But there is also so much more to this than just moving pieces on a board. The reality is that this film is driven by themes of family and perseverance, overcoming those terrifying obstacles called real life, and realizing that even though there will be some losses, you can still come out a champion. My full review below.
