Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer


The Galaxy is on the brink of a major war being won by dangerous rulers and only a few fighters stand between the Emperor and his unrelenting army which is constantly surging peaceful plants. The destruction and invasion of any planet who won't agree to the Empire's stringent regulations is all but destroyed.

Jyn Erso is one such rebel fighter who is willing to go to any lengths to fulfil her mission, often landing her in trouble with her seniors but her independent demeanour means that she might be a perfect candidate for an imperative mission - the failure of which could mean the end of the galaxy as its citizens know.

Jyn and a small team of fellow rebels must steal plans for the Emperor's newest and deadliest weapon, The Death Star.

Gareth Edwards "Biggest Regret" Was Cutting Original Godzilla Actor Akira Takarada's Cameo


Gareth Edwards Akira Takarada

Following a set of strong reviews, and with a stellar name behind it, ‘Godzilla’ is set to stomp on the competition this weekend to reign supreme at the box office. But director Gareth Edwards still has regrets, namely the cutting of Akira Takarada’s cameo in the movie.

Takarada starred in the original, 1954 movie, but his involvement in the Godzilla franchise actually stretches to six appearances in total, as the monster remains one of the most rebooted characters in cinema.

'Godzilla' Is More Growling Than Roaring Success, But Still... [Trailer]

It's going to be a big weekend for Godzilla: the monster action reboot has been teasing its entrance for months with irresistibly gloomy and stylised posters and trailers, whetting our appetite for an early summer movie with brains and bite. If that wasn't enough, the film has been earned a strong base of enthusiastic (but realistic) reviews that are sure to convince the more reluctant moviegoer that Gareth Edwards retake of the well-trodden tale is worth parting with cash for.

Still burned by the memory of Roland Emmerich's 1998 disaster of a disaster movie, many fans and critics didn't have particularly high hopes for a reboot even 15 years later. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson take centre stage as father-son duo Joe and Ford Brody who find themselves up against not Godzilla but some weird spider-dino hybrids called MUTO in this super smashy-smashy flick.

Prepare For One Big Visual Foreplay From Gareth Edwards' 'Godzilla'


Gareth Edwards Bryan Cranston Aaron Johnson

With less than a month to go before Godzilla remerges on the big screen, director Gareth Edwards is getting ready to present his version of the famous monster and it promises to be unlike any other incarnation. In the latest featurette for the film, Edwards discusses why his Godzilla has a more dark and serious tone than perhaps we would expect from a movie about the famous Kaiju.

Edward’s is hoping to avoid any of the traps that previous Godzilla filmmakers have fallen into, when presenting the monster on the big screen. Instead of going the campy or overblown route, reliant too heavily on special effects, Edwards's Godzilla is dark, serious and owing much more to the original Japanese version.
