EGP Website Article Image 17

Hannibal may have unfortunately been cancelled earlier in the year, but actor Mads Mikkelsen is still a busy man. He was recently revealed to be part of the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story cast and now it’s rumoured that he’s about to enter talks to play a villain in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange film.

The report indicates that Mikkelsen, best-known for his roles as Hannibal Lecter in Hannibal and Le Chiffre in the James Bond film Casino Royale, has not been given an official offer to appear in Doctor Strange yet but that one will be presented very soon.

Confirmed cast members include Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One.

Thoughts on this rumour? Which Doctor Strange villain would you like to see Mads Mikkelsen play?

Note: Rogue One is currently filming and filming is rumoured to wrap up in late October, whereas filming on Doctor Strange is officially starting in November so it’s possible for Mikkelsen to be in both films.

Report- Amazon Reportedly Developing a Galaxy Quest TV Series

EGP Website Article Image 13

A new report suggests that Amazon Studios is looking to sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest (released in 1999) into a TV series. Paramount Television are said to be partnering up with Amazon to develop the series.

Several crew members who worked on the original film are confirmed to return. The crew members include the following- Dean Parisot (director of the original film) returns to direct and executive produce), Robert Gordon (co-writer of the original film) will serve as the writer and an executive producer on the pilot episode and Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein (executive producers on the original film) will return as the executive producers of the TV series.

While the film featured a stellar cast (including the likes of Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman), there is currently no word on whether any of the original cast will be asked to return as the series is still in early planning stages. As it’s being made for TV it will probably look for an entirely new cast.

New Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Teaser Released

EGP Website Article Image 10

 

Anticipation for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is already at an insane level, and it just got even more insane. We’ve already had two teaser trailers (the second released at Celebration Anaheim in April) but a new teaser has just been released. This teaser is much shorter in length but still contains enough footage to get people talking.

If you’re looking to avoid any The Force Awakens spoilers, you should probably not watch this teaser as the ending spoils something major (if you didn’t see Drew Struzan’s The Force Awakens poster for D23 attendees). Therefore, this is your official SPOILER alert warning.

The teaser features new footage and footage we’ve seen before, as well as (what appears to be) a new score from John Williams. The new footage features Rey and BB-8 on a green planet and one of the new trio holding a lightsaber. Note: We won’t say who it is so only look if you really want to know before the release of The Force Awakens. The lightsaber being held appears to be the old lightsaber of Luke Skywalker though.

Thoughts on the teaser? Are you excited for the release of The Force Awakens?

EGP Website Article Image 8

The return of Star Wars to the big screen this year is a big deal for many, but for a lot of people the return of the popular Star Wars Battlefront video-games is just as big of a deal. Even though the game is still not due out until November 17th, there is massive hype surrounding the first DLC for the new Battlefront.

Not only is the first DLC, “The Battle of Jakku”, related to this year’s Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens release but the events of the DLC are canon to and tie in directly with the film. To preview the DLC, EA have released two pieces of concept art and a description for the DLC. Note: One of the pieces of concept art was shown at the D23 Expo prior to its official release).

EGP Website Article Image 9

EA’s description of the DLC reads: “

Taking place in the aftermath of the Rebel victory in the Battle of Endor, players will experience the events that created the massive, battle-scarred landscape of Jakku shown in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

DICE concept artist Anton Grandert previewed the DLC further, saying this about the highly anticipated DLC:

“There’s a David and Goliath theme to this. The epic, huge super structures of the Star Destroyers contrast against the tiny but brave Rebel soldiers fighting the Imperial forces.

We wanted to portray a battle completely surrounding you, in every direction. Debris is falling from the sky, telling the story of battles above. On the surface of the planet you can see ground troops as well as X-wings, all taking part of the fight”

Fans who have pre-ordered Battlefront can play the DLC on December 1st, but everyone who hasn’t pre-ordered will have to wait until December 7th when it is made free to the public.

Thoughts on the preview? Are you looking forward to playing the first DLC when it’s made available?

EGP Website Article Image 5

Even though Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is getting closer by the day, Star Wars fans shouldn’t forget that more Star Wars films are on the way after it is released. The first of these is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a spin-off film which will cover the Rebels stealing the Death Plans as mentioned in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

At Disney’s very own D23 Expo recently, the cast, crew and official logo for Rogue One were all revealed and it was confirmed that filming on Rogue One had begun. With new filming means new leaked set photos with filming currently rumoured to be taking place at Cardington Sheds in Bedfordshire, England.

If you don’t want to know anything about Rogue One this is your SPOILER alert warning:

A stone façade can be seen in the first pictures which looks similar to the stone structure seen in the cast picture. The final picture appears to have a wooden cut out of an X-Wing which could definitely indicate that Rogue One is being filmed there.
