Patrick Stewart Imogen Poots Stephen King Anton Yelchin Jj Abrams John Goodman Natalie Dormer Sarah Wayne Callies

This year is quite the year for horror. We've already seen a good handful of epic chillers and it's not stopping there. Stephen King's 'Cell' is the latest movie to be announced for release later this year, but here's a look at what we've seen so far and what's to come this summer. 

Green RoomMeet the band in exhilarating horror 'Green Room'

1. Green Room - Patrick Stewart as a ruthless psychopath determined to murder a punk band may seem an unlikely concept but that's what makes this nerve shredding horror (directed by Jeremy Saulnier of 'Blue Ruin') so grippingly intense. When a band shows up at neo-Nazi bar for a show, they unwittingly find themselves witnesses to a brutal murder - and now they're next on the hitlist. Alongside Patrick Stewart, the movie also stars Joe Cole from 'Peaky Blinders', '28 Weeks Later' actress Imogen Poots and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Anton Yelchin.

'Star Wars' fever has been rife all year, but nowhere was it more infectious than at the world premiere of 'The Force Awakens' yesterday (December 14th 2015). Packed with fans, celebrities as well as the stars of the movie, this was a film event of titanic proportions.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' made it's premiere in Los Angeles, though the night became so busy that it had to be spread from the Dolby Theater to the TCL Chinese and El Capitan as well. The director of the previous movies George Lucas showed, to the delight of new director and major fan J.J. Abrams. Lucas previously described having to attend the premiere as being like a divorced father at his grown child's wedding, but in this case it seems stepfather Abrams couldn't have been more right for the continuation of the 'Star Wars' project.

Discussing those who have criticised the film for casting Boyega as a black stormtrooper, Abrams said: 'All I know is John Boyega is extraordinary in the new movie. I think the people who are complaining about that probably have bigger problems than there's a black stormtrooper.’

Harrison Ford Opens Up About Near-Fatal Plane Crash


Harrison Ford Jimmy Kimmel Star Wars Jj Abrams

Harrison Ford has spoken for the first time about his miraculous escape from a plane crash seven months ago, after a vintage light aeroplane he was piloting crash-landed on a golf course on the outskirts of Los Angeles.

It was only thanks to Ford’s impeccable skills and execution that he managed to walk away relatively unscathed, and what happened would have been fatal under almost any other circumstance, crash investigators revealed soon after the accident back in March.

The 73 year old appeared on a special Star Wars / Halloween edition of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ – dressed as a hot dog, natch – and spoke about his recollections of the incident, as well as the new movie.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer


It's been thirty years since the Rebel Alliance; led by the noble Luke Skywalker, the intrepid Princess Leia and the lionhearted Han Solo; finally defeated Emperor Palpatine of the Galactic Empire, alongside his redeemed assistant Darth Vader. The second Death Star was reduced to rubble, and the galaxy was free from a tyrannous evil once more. If only that were true. For there can never be good without evil, and sure enough another Dark Lord, Supreme Leader Snoke, has arisen to take the Emperor's place, with even more brutal plans for the civilians across the stars. But this time there are also new heroes, better equipped to deal with the ever looming terror thanks to an example set by the now ageing former Han, Luke and Leia. They are now preparing to help a vindicated former stormtrooper named Finn, an independent scavenger called Rey, and Poe Dameron who is a Resistance X-Wing pilot.
