Go Behind The Scenes Of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ In This New Video

Everyone believed the Star Wars panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con would be a major event, but no one knew exactly what to expect. The cast was present–including ‘The Legacy Players,’ Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford–as was director JJ Abrams, and somewhere in the middle a behind-the-scenes video from the production of Episode VII was revealed. Twitter was buzzing with talk about the clip and within an hour of the event the footage was made available online. Who needs religion when you have JJ Abrams, am I right? God can’t compete with that kind of turnaround time.…

Stan Lee Has An ‘Avengers 2′ Cameo (Of Course)

I fear the day the world is without Stan Lee. He may be the closest thing to a universal grandfather figure we will ever know. He’s great in everything, and that includes his role in Punisher: War Zone.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron is the next big Marvel project, and over the weekend Stan Lee confirmed to the attendees at London Film and Comic Con that he too will be joining the already star-studded cast. He declined to give away any specifics regarding where or how he will appear in the film, but he did have a quippy remark ready …

‘Black Mass’ Set Photos: First Images Of Johnny Depp As James ‘Whitey’ Bulger Surface Online

Earlier today we wrote to you about a new documentary about James ‘Whitey’ Bulger being released nationwide in June. In that post we also mentioned the possibility of seeing multiple biopics on Bulger enter production in the years ahead, and less than three hours later an email hit our inbox confirming that very thought.

Right now, somewhere in the world, Johnny Depp is dressed as Whitey and working away on a new movie titled Black Mass. The film takes its title from a book on Bulger’s reign released several years back, and from the looks of it will span …

Watch the Trailer for the Green Day Documentary, ¡Cuatro!, Release on September 24

After a really long wait, the punks in Green Day finally released a new teaser trailer for their new documentary, ¡Cuatro! The documentary follows Green Day during the creation process of their new album trilogy, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré!, and how they took a more stripped down, raw approach to writing and recording. For the past two albums, the band has taken to writing in the studio a lot more (because frankly they can afford that), but Green Day this time around got back to their roots and wrote the three albums in a small room, together.

The teaser for …
