This weekend is Star Wars Celebration in London and we’ve already got some exciting tidbits of information. Admittedly, it’s just some behind-the-scenes footage but it reveals the world of Rogue One and some new looks at the variety of characters we’ll be spending time with come December 2016.
Gareth Edwards is directing so naturally the film looks gorgeous and epic in scope. There is constant mention of practical effects and sets because people are still worried about over-whelming CGI. There’s a happy middle-ground and it looks like Star Wars might be the series that delivers on it. Edwards also brings up riding the fine line between honoring what came before and breaking new ground. I appreciate that. We might have the best Star Wars yet.
And here’s the official poster:

Next week is San Diego Comic Con and as such the rest of the roundup will be devoted to getting you prepped for that event with other first looks.
We’ve got some new pictures courtesy of Entertainment Weekly showcasing Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, a look at Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor, and Patty Jenkins directing. Rumor has it we’ll see Wonder Woman footage at SDCC. Here’s to hoping.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 is high on the anticipation scale for 2017 blockbusters, but there hasn’t been much of anything to decipher what it’s actually about. There still isn’t much to go on but there’s a piece of concept art to show the new team lineup. The original team are joined by familiar faces of Yondu, Nebula, and new character Mantis. Also, a baby Groot!
THE DARK TOWER
I’m about to dive headfirst into the world of Stephen King’s Dark Tower book series for the first time. It’s an exciting prospect since the film is officially a sequel of sorts to the original book series. For the uninitiated, it’s difficult to make heads or tails of the images. Head over to Entertainment Weekly to check them out.
KONG: SKULL ISLAND
We’ve got another look at the upcoming Kong: Skull Island as Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson wade through the bones of a giant creature. In other news, King Kong will also reportedly be the largest version we’ve ever seen.
Stay tuned to Audiences Everywhere for SDCC and all the best movie news.
