New cast members includes Kelly Marie Tran , Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, and Academy Award nominee Laura Dern
Star Wars: Episode VIII is being produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski serves as executive producers .
Anybody else hoping that Rey gets a double sided light saber ( In PINK ) ?
Star Wars: Episode VIII is scheduled for release December 15, 2017.
Benicio Del Toro is apparently up for the part to play a villain in a galaxy far, far away. The Wrap says an offer has gone out to the Academy Award winner to play the villain in director Rian Johnson’s upcoming Star Wars: Episode VIII.
Very little is known about the eighth “Saga” chapter of the franchise other than that Johnson is attached to both write and direct. And thats really all we do know, because Episode VII is so shrouded in secrecy that we don´t even know what where or who on that movie either except for what the trailer has shown us. Del Toro recently starred as The Collector in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. He was also rumored to be up for the villain role in Abrams Star Trek Into Darkness back in 2011.
Del Toro is an actor with range, having appeared in movies like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Traffic, 21 Grams, and the scene stealing Fenster in The Usual Suspects . The Star Wars sequel trilogy could turn out to have some memorable on-screen villainy for real.He’ll flip yo’. Flip yo’ for real.
Starring Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Anderson, Christina Chong and Miltos Yerolemou, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will debut in theaters on December 18.

Lionsgate has debuted the first official trailer for Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve’s new thriller Sicario. Coming off a hot debut at the Cannes Film Festival this year . Emily Blunt stars as a FBI agent who is enlisted by an elite government task force official to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Other cast includes Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Jon Bernthal and Victor Garber. An impressive cast to say the least.
I will be watching this one for sure . Lionsgate will release Villeneuve’s Sicario in theaters starting September 18th this fall.
