There is no question that LucasFilm’s first two Star Wars movies under the Disney regime, 2015′s Star Wars: The Force Awakens and last year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story were massive hits, with both movies taking in just over $3 billion worldwide combined. This means that Disney has already earned back three-fourths of the $4 billion it spent to acquire LucasFilm back in 2012, and while both movies are certainly critically-acclaimed, there are still many fans who feel both films are just re-hashes of the original Star Wars trilogy. It seems that the Honest Trailers team feels this way, and with the release of the Rogue One Blu-ray and DVD last week, they decided to tear this Star Wars spin-off a new one.
Screen Junkies debuted this new Honest Trailer today, which does contain plenty of SPOILERS if you still haven’t seen Rogue One quite yet. This new six-minute video kicks off by referencing this past season of Comedy Central’s South Park and the “Memba Berries” that played a big part in the storyline. Throughout the season, the argument was made that The Force Awakens wasn’t actually a great movie, but it merely serviced fan nostalgia in such a way that made people believe it was great. Narrator Jon Bailey mentions right off the bat that this new slate of Star Wars movies seems intent on re-hashing the original trilogy, an argument which has plenty of evidence to support it in this video.
This video also points out that this is the first Star Wars anthology movie, with LucasFilm making it clear that they want to avoid any connection to the prequel trilogy that was much maligned by fans and critics alike, while joking that the $200 million budget is the most money ever spent to fill a plot hole. The story takes place before A New Hope, revealing how the Rebel spies stole the Death Star plans, which were placed inside the beloved droid R2-D2. But, as this video points out, the process of getting those plans inside R2-D2 was quite convoluted, involving a number of different data transfers and file formats. This video even jokes about Jyn Erso’s (Felicity Jones) not-so-rebellious nature, while teasing that the droid K-2SO (Alan Tudyk) has more personality than any of the human characters, poking fun at the rest of this Rebel team.
The Galactic Empire is not spared from this takedown, with the narrator pointing out that “various old dudes,” such as Director Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) and Grand Moff Tarkin (Peter Cushing) all squabble for bragging rights over who created the Death Star. The narrator also comments on how two new flavors of Stormtroopers are put on display, although their change in attire does not correct their usual ineptitude, while joking that this movie sets up the Stormtroopers’ “weakness to sticks”, later exploited by the Ewoks in Return of the Jedi. While the narrator does admit that Rogue One is “one of the most beautiful Star Wars films to date,” he adds that it feels like the world’s biggest budget fan film, while pointing out a number of Easter Eggs such as the Guardians of the Whills, blue milk and the return of two guys from the Mos Eisley Cantina scene in A New Hope.
The video comes to a close with an examination of the iconic Darth Vader scene, as the narrator points out that James Earl Jones sounds much older, although that epic lightsaber hallway scene is, “the most badass Star Wars moment put to film.” Still, while that lightsaber battle was quite impressive, it doesn’t make sense from a continuity standpoint, since his next lightsaber battle in the timeline would be with Alec Guinness’ Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope, a scene where Vader seemingly doesn’t have the same amount of impressive skills he did in the hallway scene. The video also points out the numerous bits of footage that were shown throughout the film’s marketing campaign, but weren’t shown in the actual movie, which some fans didn’t exactly approve of. Take a look at the Honest Trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story below.
We are about to be absolutely spoiled with Star Wars news over the next handful of days, thanks to Star Wars Celebration taking place in Orlando starting this Thursday. But that doesn’t mean the party can’t get started a little early. It turns out that Guillermo Del Toro has met with Lucasfilm about some ideas for a Star Wars movie, but don’t get too excited just yet.
The Pacific Rim director recently spoke with Collider about all manner of things relating to his career, including his new movie The Shape of Water and Trollhunters season 2. At one point Guillermo Del Toro was asked about his potential interest in directing a Star Wars movie and, while he was very hesitant to give a committal answer (for good reason), he did reveal that he has talked with Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm special effects guru John Knoll about some story ideas. Here is what he had to say.
“I will not comment on this, because then somebody will say, ‘Oh, Guillermo’s doing [Star Wars]!’ and I look like a kook. Neil Gaiman once said that, ‘I’d love to write Doctor Strange with Guillermo,’ and then all of a sudden on my IMDb I had ‘Doctor Strange’ [listed]. But saying all of that as a caveat, I would say there’s some characters that are great, and I have talked to Kathy Kennedy and John Knoll about ideas. But you know, I want to do my sh*t. I want to do my sh*t, I want to do it first, and I’m veering a lot towards animation. I love animation.”
Guillermo Del Toro has had his name attached to quite a few projects over the years that either never came to be or never really were in the first place, so it is completely understandable that he doesn’t want to fuel a fire that isn’t necessarily burning. At least not yet. He has also had several big franchise projects, like Justice League Dark, get away from him in the past. So it is also understandable that he is more interested in doing his own thing, as opposed to playing around with such a huge franchise that doesn’t really belong to him. Though, it is hard not to get a little bit excited over the prospect of Guillermo Del Toro doing a Star Wars movie.
At the moment, every currently announced Star Wars movie has a director attached. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are filming the Han Solo movie as we speak and Colin Trevorrow is set to direct Star Wars Episode IX. But there is an as-of-yet unnamed anthology Star Wars movie set for 2020, which will need a director. We very well could find out more about this project at Star Wars Celebration this week, but it is rumored that Lucasfilm is committed to doing an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie with Ewan McGregor, and they are still looking at doing a Bounty Hunter movie with Boba Fett as one of the main characters. That seems like something that would possibly fit Guillermo Del Toro pretty well, assuming he ever decides it is something he wants to do and Lucasfilm decides they want him to do it.
Guillermo Del Toro has enough to keep him busy right now and he clearly isn’t interested in tackling a story in a galaxy far, far away. At least not anytime in the immediate future. But he has at least toyed with the idea enough to chat with Kathleen Kennedy and John Knoll about it, so you never know. Disney is going to be making Star Wars movies for a long time and they could eventually circle back and get Del Toro to direct one.
Just a few weeks after Sony Pictures handed out a new Baby Driver release date, the studio has debuted a thrilling new international trailer that should appease both comedy and action junkies alike. This action-comedy marks the long-awaited return of beloved writer-director Edgar Wright, with Baby Driver representing his first film in four years, since 2013′s The World’s End. If the critical reception this movie has already gotten is any indication, the director is most certainly back and better than ever.
A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. When he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James), Baby sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom. Sony Pictures International debuted this trailer on their YouTube channel earlier today. The all-star cast includes Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Jon Bernthal, Eiza Gonzalez, Flea and Sky Ferreira.
This film made its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, where it received glowing reviews. It also caused Sony to re-evaluate its release plans for Baby Driver, shifting its release from August 11 to June 28. In its previous August release date, it would have faced the horror sequel Annabelle: Creation, while being sandwiched between Sony’s highly-anticipated The Dark Tower (August 4) and Open Road Films’ The Nut Job 2 and Lionsgate’s The Hitman’s Bodyguard (August 18). Now in its new Wednesday release date, it is quite more competitive. The movie has no direct competition on June 28th, but it opens just five days after the highly-anticipated Transformers: The Last Knight on June 23, and two days before a packed weekend on June 30 that includes the animated sequel Despicable Me, the Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler comedy The House and the horror-thriller Amityville: The Awakening.
Director Edgar Wright revealed in a December interview that he wanted to craft an action movie around music, adding that Ansel Elgort’s title character uses his personalized playlist to drown out the ringing in his ears, caused by tintinus. The director also teased that music plays an important role in the film, although he stated that he wouldn’t reveal the track list for the soundtrack until they’re much closer to the film’s release. The filmmaker added there will be around 35 tracks used in the movie, which range from world-famous songs to obscure tracks that reflect the title character’s eclectic taste in music.
Edgar Wright directs this action-comedy from his own screenplay, which he had been developing since 2008. The filmmaker had been developing this project alongside Marvel’s Ant-Man, which he had been slated to direct, before he parted ways with the project in 2014, just before filming was about to get under way. Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner produce alongside Edgar Wright’s longtime producing partner Nira Park, with James Biddle, Liza Chasin, Rachel Prior, Adam Merims, Leo Thompson and Michelle Wright executive producing. Take a look at this new international trailer for Baby Driver below.
With the success of both Deadpool and Logan, doing R-rated adaptations seems to be an emerging trend. So far, this has largely been relegated to the world of comic book movies, but it looks like it may be expanding to the world of video game adaptations as well, assuming producer Adi Shankar gets his way. So what video game does he want to turn into a violent, R-rated movie? Naturally, it is Mega Man.
The producer, who worked on movies like The Grey and Dredd, recently spoke with WPG about some of his currently in-the-works projects, as well as some things he would like to see happen in the future. It turns out that one thing he really wants to do is bring Mega Man to the big screen, which is reasonable enough, given the popularity and longevity of the video game series. Only, he sees it as a “hard-R” movie. Here is what he had to say.
“I’d love to do a hard-R Mega Man.”
So, at least for now, this is just something he would like to do and isn’t actually working on at the moment. But Adi Shankar is working a lot these days and it wouldn’t be that hard to believe he could maybe get this Mega Man movie going at some point. Though it is hard to imagine what need there is for the movie to be R-rated, but since he didn’t elaborate on his idea or his take for the Mega Man movie, we can only wonder. He did say that he doesn’t have any interest in pursuing projects he doesn’t understand and that he only wants to develop projects based on things he loved as a kid. He takes things like this seriously.
“If I’m not a fan of something and I don’t organically understand what is cool about it, then I’m simply not going to get involved. Even though I have one foot in the door in Hollywood, I’m not trying to rape and pillage culture for profit. I’m trying to take the things I loved as a kid and bring them to life in an interesting way.”
If nothing else, an R-rated Mega Man movie would be interesting. Adi Shankar has a history with doing gritty, R-rated versions of things. He is currently working on an animated Power Rangers TV show that is said to be more gritty and he also famously did some shorts that were very much a hard-R; Punisher: Dirty Laundry and Power/Rangers. Both of those shorts featured big-name talent and both of them were met with praise from fans in addition to some opposition from the rights holders, since they were done without permission. But these shorts have proved that he does gritty and bloody very well. So maybe he really could pull off an R-rated Mega Man movie?
In case you aren’t familiar, Mega Man started as a video game series back in 1987 and has spawned a ton of sequels and spin-offs over the years. To date, the series has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. The story centers on an android named Rock, who was created by a scientist named Dr. Light with the help of his assistant, Dr. Wily. Eventually, Dr. Wily reprogrammed all of Dr Light’s robots, which become a violent threat. So Rock is then converted into a battle robot to defend the world from Wily’s violent robots, becoming Mega Man.
That premise doesn’t seem overly deserving of an R-rated adaptation, at least not in the way that things like Deadpool did. A cartoony looking blue android destroying robots with an arm cannon could easily be done as PG-13, or at least one would think. Maybe we’ll get to hear more about this in the future but for now, you can look forward to Adi Shankar’s Castlevania series, which is set to arrive on Netflix later this year.

UPDATE, WRITETHRU: Netflix’s epic period series The Crown leads the BAFTA TV Awards nominations with five, receiving four mentions in the acting categories and one for Best Drama Series this morning. That showing was largely expected. But in a surprise today, the BBC’s Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning adaptation of John Le Carré’s The Night Manager was a near shut-out. It squeaked in one nomination, for Tom Hollander’s creepy-yet-tragic factotum Corky, in Best Supporting Actor. The series does have six BAFTA Craft Awards nominations, but many expected more love for the Tom Hiddleston/Hugh Laurie/Olivia Colman-starrer. BAFTA favorite Colman did pick up a mention this morning, however, as Best Actress in a Comedy for BBC Three’s Fleabag.
For The Crown, Claire Foy was nominated in Leading Actress, Vanessa Kirby in Supporting Actress and John Lithgow and Jared Harris in Supporting Actor. Joining the series in the Best Drama category are Masterpiece/ITV’s The Durrells, BBC One’s Happy Valley, and BBC One’s War And Peace.
Other notable mentions include BBC Two’s The Hollow Crown: The Wars Of The Roses in Miniseries and its Leading Actor Benedict Cumberbatch. The one-off Sherlock special from early 2016, The Abominable Bride, has three Craft mentions, but none today.
Picking up International Series nods are HBO’s The Night Of, FX’s The People V OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, Netflix’s Stranger Things and, in a repeat, Amazon’s Transparent.
As with its seven BAFTA Craft Awards nominations for The Crown, today marks another coup for Netflix. BAFTA tweaked its rules last year to adapt to a changing landscape. Notably, under the old rules, series like The Crown, The Night Manager or War And Peace wouldn’t have been eligible due to their funding models which would have instead relegated them to the International Series category. But a rule that previously stipulated 50% of the funding for a series came from the UK was kiboshed and the primary criteria is now that creative control of a project reside in Britain. Another new stipulation is that the worldwide premiere broadcast has to have been in the UK, although in cases where a series bows day-and-date (ie on Netflix), it qualifies.
The BAFTA TV Awards will be held at London’s Royal Festival Hall on May 14 (Craft Awards are April 23). See below the original post for the full list of today’s nominees.
PREVIOUS: The nominations for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts TV Awards are being announced this morning in London. The Craft Awards nominations, which were announced at the end of last month, are generally a good guide for the main TV nods, however, with landmark BBC natural history series Planet Earth II leading below-the-line mentions, today’s nominations should offer a change-up as these races skew more towards drama, comedy and entertainment. Series to keep an eye on here are expected to be Netflix’s epic period drama The Crown and the BBC’s John Le Carré adaptation The Night Manager as well as The Weinstein Co’s BBC One Tolstoy adaptation, War And Peace. We’ll be updating the nominees as they are announced, so check back for updates. Sue Perkins will host the TV Awards on May 14.
