Into the Woods
Wondering what it'll look like when Rob Marshall goes back to his Chicago-style musical roots with Disney's adaptation of the Broadway hit Into the Woods? We can't see the whole thing until December 25, but you can catch a glimpse right now courtesy of the first trailer, released today. Here's the official synopsis:

STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII Director Rian Johnson Teases Overall Direction of the Film Last month we got the utterly fantastic news that Rian Johnson will be writing and directing Star Wars: Episode VIII, (in addition to crafting a treatment for Star Wars: Episode IX).  Johnson’s Looper is such an incredibly strong film that I have to imagine there will be a certain amount of quality gained from this if he’s allowed a reasonable amount of control over the project.  While details are still thin on Episode VIII (let’s face it, they’re still thin on Episode VII so I wouldn’t expect this to get better anytime soon) this is a sign that Lucasfilm and Disney are at least somewhat conce

'Star Wars: Episode 7′ Set Photos: Luke Skywalker Heads to Skellig Island Though Comic-Con 2014 offered nothing of J.J. Abrams' 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' the first installment of the brand-new trilogy continues filming to meet its December 2015 release date. From the deserts of Abu Dhabi to London's Pinewood Studios, production now sets up shop on Ireland's remote Skellig Michael Island to film scenes involving Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker, and we have the first photos of the locale!

The only time I got into Hall H at Comic-Con was to see Kevin Smith's panel for Tusk, which is kind of the big show. It's an Evening With Kevin Smith in his home turf. He opened with the story of visiting J.J.

Pirates
It had to navigate some awfully stormy seas to get here, including reported script problems that bumped it off Disney's schedule and away from its original summer 2015 release date, but Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is finally in the dock, and with new directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg at the helm, it's now scheduled to set sail on July 7, 2017.

Supernatural To Sing – 200th Episode To Be Meta And Musical As Supernatural starts up it’s 10th season, it’s all heading for it’s 200th episode. Accordoing to E-online, that episode (fifth of the new season) will be a bit different for the series. Following in the footsteps of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Grey’s Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother, the anniversary episode will be musical-ish. I say “ish” because the show’s executive producer Jeremy Carver didn’t come out and call it a musical. What he did say was, “We’re going pretty meta.

J.J. Abrams Reveals 'Star Wars: Episode VII' X-Wing

Xwing
We can't (yet) see what our old friends Luke, Han, Leia, and Chewbacca are up to on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, but we've already been granted a sneak peek of R2-D2 -- and now, director J.J. Abrams has thrown back the curtain on our first look at the return of the X-wing fighter. The ship, piloted by Rebel insurgents in their battle against the Empire, seems set to be making a return to action in Episode VII, at least judging from the glimpse we get via Abrams' new "Force for Change" video.

Star Wars: Episode VII X-Wing style vehicle revealed Brilliantly, wonderfully, JJ Abrams is using the focus and excitement we all have for the next installment of the Star Wars saga as a force for good (or a Force For Change as he calls it) by creating videos from the set that help raise money for charity via some rather exciting prizes. Traditionally, JJ has held back information during the making-of period of his movies, so it's really exciting he's using these videos to offer glimpses of the set for fans, with the main purpose of supporting UNICEF. It's basically the nicest Jedi mind trick we've ever seen.

Planes: Fire and Rescue
Sorry for the lateness, folks! It’s been a busy week on this end—fortunately, it looks like we aren’t missing much: while last weekend was a brief break from the run of mediocre summer titles hitting theaters, it seems the break is over, as this weekend brings a horde of poorly-received releases to the box office.
