    How The 'Avengers'-Izing Of Blockbusters Is Killing Movies

    Is it enough to just make one movie anymore? In the wake of Marvel’s audacious world-building in an assembly line of completely indistinguishable adventure movies, the studios would answer no. What used to be one series of movies has become a web, one that involves various other series’ and offshoot...

    J.J. Abrams Admits ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ Secrecy Went Too Far; Talks Reluctance To Rush 'Star Wars' Release Date

    Considering the hatred that grew for it this year, it's very possible you care for J.J. Abrams’ mystery box signature trait much less than we do.

    Samuel L. Jackson Says Mark Hamill & Ewan McGregor Haven't Been Contacted By J.J. Abrams For 'Star Wars 7'

    Before we get into this it's probably worth reminding everyone that when it comes to "Star Wars," at this point, nobody really knows anything except J.J. Abrams, Lawrence Kasdan, George Lucas and probably Michael Arndt, who is likely sworn to secrecy about whatever work he did on "Star Wars: Episode...

    ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Sets December 2015 Release Date; Brad Bird's 'Tomorrowland' Pushed To 2015

    There's still no title, and it seems even J.J. Abrams is a bit punchy about delivering the movie in time, but mark your calendars as Disney has gone ahead and slated "Star Wars: Episode 7" for a late 2015 release.

    Watch: Rediscovered & Deleted 'Jedi' Scene Touches Upon Moral Implications 'Star Wars' Didn't Want To Address

    It's a testament to the enduring legacy of George Lucas' "Star Wars" series that we're still talking about these movies and that they’re still being pored over, some 30-odd years after the the original films dropped.

    We recently got to chat with the lovely and talented Saoirse Ronan about her upcoming young adult adaptation "How I Live Now" (review here), which is kind of like what would have happened if Terrence Malick had directed "Red Dawn" (more from that interview soon).
