    Download the new GODZILLA one-sheet teaser posterHot off this morning's release of the new GODZILLA teaser trailer, Legendary Pictures has unveiled the new GODZILLA teaser one-sheet poster design for the film. Combining the HALO combat jump into the swath of destruction Godzilla is wreaking upon San Francisco as seen in the trailer, this new poster effectively illustrates the epic scale of Gareth Edwards' serious, darker tone take on the creature feature, harkening back much more to the original 1954 Toho film. Get the poster.

    Kenobi/Palpatine Episode VII rumors

    TSWS.com on Palpatine, Kenobi and film delay Episode VII rumorsIt's been a busy week on TheStarWarsSaga homestead and a slow week for actual hard STAR WARS news, so it's time to address the one-two-three punch of rampant rumors regarding EPISODE VII casting… specifically the source-thin web traffic about Ewan McGregor and Ian McDiarmid reprising their roles in the upcoming new film. Given that Lucasfilm has yet to even confirm if EPISODE VII is even close to finishing pre-production let alone starting production filming, both the film industry and fan galaxy are adrift in the STAR WARS news doldrums and speculation is running particularly rampant. TheStarWarsSaga.com sorts out the facts from the bantha biscuits in their latest article.

    No STAR WARS news from D23 Expo

    Disney declines to flex Star Wars muscle at D23 ExpoDespite what fans and followers expected and predicted, Disney declined to seize their first opportunity to show off their newly-acquired STAR WARS brand and shared little if any actual news to attendees at the D23 Expo this weekend. From nearly the opening moments, Disney CEO Bob Iger practically squelched all hope that any STAR WARS news would issue forth from the Expo, and Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn couldn't do more than confirm EPISODE VII would arrive in theaters for Summer 2015. TheStarWarsSaga.com summarizes what little STAR WARS was seen and shared at D23 with our own analysis of why we didn't learn more.

    FilmEdge reviews Disney's PLANES

    FilmEdge.net reviews Disney's PLANESThis Friday, Disney's PLANES wings into theaters with a familiar but family-friendly tale told in the clouds above the world of CARS and with similar results. This underdog story of a cropduster yearning to compete in a globe-spanning air race is accessibly simple for young viewers to latch onto while the aerobatic visuals occasionally lift PLANES above being a mere remake with vehicular substitution. PLANES got an upgrade from direct-to-DVD release and its plot simplicity shows the difference from Disney/Pixar first class efforts, even if director Klay Hall's lofty visual style makes good use of its aerial settings in a way CARS never could.

    'Orange Harvest' hints drop at D23 Expo

    Disney drops STAR WARS theme park hints with Orange Harvest at D23Early press arrivals at D23 Expo like ComingSoon.net have sensed an intriguing disturbance in the Force on the convention floor in the shape of several curious crates marked "Orange Harvest" that are clearly STAR WARS-related. As devoted fans well know, "Blue Harvest" was the production code name used in 1983 during location filming of RETURN OF THE JEDI, so this callback to that clue with Orange Harvest is unmistakable, especially with the tag line "Speculation Beyond Imagination" referencing JEDI yet again. But why Orange, you may well ask? Read more.

    EPISODE VII to begin filming in August?

    Rumor control: is STAR WARS EPISODE VII filming this August?There are definitely some strange aspects to this rumor mixed in with fairly logical details that could easily be true, so it's tough to categorize this one beyond the category of "possible." Earlier today a rumor surfaced that STAR WARS: EPISODE VII has apparently booked stage and facility space at Pinewood Studios just outside of London under a somewhat suspicious fake production pseudonym. Is this a blend of facts and unfounded rumor, or is it a true disguise name for EPISODE VII to start filming in London next month? Read more at our STAR WARS site.

    Review: Disney's THE LONE RANGER

    FilmEdge.net reviews THE LONE RANGER Johnny Depp teams up with director Gore Verbinski once again, recruiting Armie Hammer to join their galloping voyage across the wild west in THE LONE RANGER, Disney's quirky, sometimes quite surprising take on the venerable western icon hero of TV and radio fame. Their retelling of the Ranger's story tinkers with historical accuracy to forge a larger film legend more suited for the competitive summer box office battles. A much-needed tightening of the story's gun belt would save THE LONE RANGER from its overblown action finale. Read FilmEdge's full review online now.

Seeking clues to the lightsaber's theft, Kinane stumbles onto a pair of dueling Han Solo impersonators (Kumail Nanjiani and Seth Green) who mistake Kyle as a casting agent for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII.

    Review: MONSTERS UNIVERSITY

    FilmEdge.net reviews MONSTERS UNIVERSITYTurning back time to see the friendship of Mike and Sulley blossom against the odds, Pixar's prequel story MONSTERS UNIVERSITY certainly passes the test of light summer entertainment but doesn't really advance or deepen this continuing tale — not that this will matter much to family audiences just seeking some fun. MONSTERS UNIVERSITY gets an A in animation, scenic design and technical wizardry as expected, but their choice of a prequelized plot costs the film a few good marks by not finding a more ingenious, original way to revisit Mike and Sulley: The Early Years.

    Review: Disney/Pixar's BRAVE

    FilmEdge reviews Disney/Pixar's BRAVEAn enjoyable cast of talented voice artists supported by sumptuous animation design and visuals highlight Pixar's venture into the Scots highlands, but BRAVE plays out as a timid, less original tale than most produced in Disney/Pixar's lengthy string of hits. Not that such storytelling timidity will impact this film's box office take over the summer with family audiences, but older audience members who enjoy watching Pixar draw and digitize the cutting edge of feature animation storytelling may find BRAVE landing short of that mark of innovation.

    Review: HONDO debuts on Blu-ray

    FilmEdge reviews the rarely seen John Wayne western HONDO on Blu-ray On June 5th, the rarely seen John Wayne classic western HONDO makes its high-definition widescreen debut on Blu-ray. Co-starring Academy Award nominee Geraldine Page, Lee Aaker, Ward Bond and James Arness, this unconventional Wayne film blends intriguing, stereotype-defeating drama with good old fashioned shoot 'em up action. Originally produced as a 3D film but rarely seen in that format, HONDO makes its long-awaited Blu-ray bow in digitally restored 2D that has the film looking better than you've ever seen it.

    Burton stumbles in DARK SHADOWS

    FilmEdge reviews DARK SHADOWSFilmEdge was looking forward to seeing just how Tim Burton and star Johnny Depp, two reported devotees of the 1960s Gothic soap opera, would update and expand upon the melodramatic mystery of DARK SHADOWS. Even the Superfly-soundtracked trailer didn't throw us off completely, even if it threw a curve ball directly past our expectations. What we didn't expect was one of Burton's weakest films to date, a grand visual feast cramped by an inattentive, bland script. There are some bright points in this fang-out-of-water tale thanks to Depp's subtle performance touches (nods to Jonathan Frid's original Barnabas abound) and Danny Elfman's superb score, but the question remains can the actor's likability alone pump enough box office blood into the film to make it a hit in the wake of Marvel's THE AVENGERS? Find out in FlimEdge's review of DARK SHADOWS.
