It is anticipated the new James Bond movie will be one of 2015's biggest hits.

Star Wars 360 video sends you speeding on Jakku

This morning the first 360-degree immersive Star Wars: The Force Awakens experience was released - and what a doozie it is. This experience comes in the form of a 360-degree Facebook video, created with the technology described in our first ILMxLAB feature. Here you'll be jamming along the sands of Jakku on the speeder you saw in the first couple of teaser trailers for the new movie. You're driving as Rey would, and if you listen closely, you'll hear that the droid BB-8 is along for the ride as well. Watch out for desert marauders while you're out there.

Star Wars original theatrical cuts tipped for re-release

Star Wars original theatrical cuts tipped for re-release

This evening the re-release of the original Star Wars movies - the theatrical cuts of the movies, that is - has been tipped. Not announced by Lucasfilm or Disney, but tipped, by film director John Landis.

DC Comics’ next big movie will star Booster Gold

DC Comics’ next big movie will star Booster Gold

The effect Guardians of The Galaxy has had on the big movie business becomes more apparent each new oddball movie that's announced. Today, that movie has two superheroes by the names Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. Unless you read DC comic books regularly - and have spanned off into the strange worlds of justice league affiliates aplenty - you might not know Booster Gold or Blue Beetle. But we do. Thanks to the cartoon series Batman: The Brave and The Bold, we know Blue Beetle and Booster Gold all too well!

Pacific Rim 2 movie has been halted, may be cancelled

In October 2013, we heard word that a Pacific Rim sequel had been written thanks to an outpouring of fandom for the flick, and that it was just awaiting a green light to enter the official production stage.

Unfortunately, things have changed and the sequel has been delayed indefinitely.

That vision is now taking the network directly to mobile, where it will practically be putting it at odds with Netflix agian. And probably with some EPIX's new distribution partners as well. EPIX will soon be launching a mobile app that not only will give direct access to its long list of blockbuster films and comedy videos, but will also allow users to download that content on their device for watching later, even without an Internet connection.

Video shows Star Wars Prequels “rhyme” with original trilogy

Video shows Star Wars Prequels “rhyme” with original trilogy

A video showing the intense visual similarities between the original Star Wars trilogy and each successive prequel has been released. This video was made by a creator by the name of "whoispablo", a rather big Star Wars fan and certainly someone who isn't part of the "We hate the Prequels" club. Here you'll see George Lucas suggest of the prequels: "you see the echo of where all is gonna go. It's like poetry, they rhyme", followed by proof.

Latest Star Wars The Force Awakens photos show tiniest details

Today we've been passed a set of photos and cut-out images from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, most of them new to our eyes. These images will be used in merchandise for the film in the near future - you might even see some of these pictures popping up in stores near you on products like posters and wall-clings later this month. For now though, what better way to make use of the lot of them than to hyper-analyze and otherwise turn the lot into wallpapers for your phone and tablet?
