Easter Egg Countdown - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (video)

The first ever anthology film from the STAR WARS universe, ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY was somewhat of a gamble, but paid off big time for Lucasfilm when it hit theaters in December last year. Rounding up a rag-tag group of galactic outlaws, soldiers and a quirky robot, the story basically took a few lines of dialogue from A NEW HOPE and made an entire movie out of them, filled...

I feel as though I've lost count of all the Robin Hood projects in development at the moment, but the first reimagining of the Robin Hood legend which we'll be setting our sights on will find Taron Egerton starring as the heroic outlaw.

Rogue One began life as a concept for the live-action Star Wars TV series

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY originated as an idea from Industrial Light & Magic's chief creative officer John Knoll, who thought that the story of how the Rebels stole the plans to the Death Star would make for an exciting movie. However, the seeds of ROGUE ONE were actually planted further back than I had realized, to when George Lucas was still in the midst of shooting STAR...

Back in June of 1994, I traveled with my family to San Francisco to walk the busy strip of San Francisco California's Fisherman's Wharf. While there, I was fortunate enough to attend a Games of Tomorrow event where one of the earliest working virtual reality units was on display.

*Spoilers for ROGUE ONE below.* Alright, so I think I’m in the majority when I say I think the best scene from ROGUE ONE was where Papa Vader lights up his saber and gives a ton of rebel soldiers a personal colonoscopy. But one of many revelations about the film coming from Gary Whitta reveals Vader was almost limited to merely one kill in the original draft of the...
