Could Matthew Vaughn Direct ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′?

Posted: 05 Nov 2012 01:26 PM PST

By now the world knows of Disney acquiring Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. After the deal was made, Disney announced that they wanted to release Episode 7 in 2015 and one Star Wars related film every two years after. Many created these wish lists of directors to helm Episode 7, but so few were to point out Matthew Vaughn's name. Now there is a rumor that Vaughn is the leading candidate to direct the film. While we have yet to receive confirmation of such news, Collider was able to uncover some interesting developments.

Of course there are just a handful of directors many wished were directing the film, but I find it hard to believe that Joss Whedon has the time to squeeze Episode 7 into his schedule when he is busy working on The Avengers 2. Same goes for any other A-list director that is busy working on a film that is set to be relased between 2014 and 2015 [...]

Movie Review: Flight

Posted: 05 Nov 2012 10:26 AM PST

Flight starring Denzel Washington

Directed by Robert Zemeckis
Written by John Gatins
Starring Denzel Washington, Kelly Reilly, Don Cheadle, John Goodman, Bruce Greenwood, Melissa Leo
Paramount Pictures
Rated R | 139 Minutes
Release Date: November 2, 2012

Airline captain William "Whip" Whitaker (Denzel Washington) wakes up in a hotel room with flight attendant Katerina Marquez (Nadine Velazquez, FX's The League).

Amidst a landfill of empty glass bottles and crushed aluminum cans, Whip smokes a joint and downs the half-empty bottle of beer on his nightstand.

Katerina navigates the wreckage, casually searching for her clothes. Her perfect nude form tip-toes around the room as Whip gets his bearings. Hungover from a sleepless night of sex, drugs, and reckless room service abuse, the still-drunk Whip opens his bloodshot eyes, rolls up a $100 bill, and snorts a couple lines of coke to shake the cobwebs.

Seconds later, Whitaker is a sharp-dressed man in his pilot uniform, strutting through the airport. Scheduled to commandeer a commercial aircraft from Orlando to Atlanta this morning, the captain takes his seat behind the controls with rookie copilot Ken Evans (Brian Geraghty). Whip chases black coffee and aspirin discreetly with vodka and orange juice and lets Evans fly the plane while he takes a nap.

Near Atlanta, the plane enters a steep dive, jolting Whip awake. After exhausting all other options, the liquored-up Whip rolls the plane into an inverted position (flying upside-down) to bring it out of the nosedive, then maneuvers the plane right-side up just before crash-landing in a field. The media hails Whitaker as a hero (reminiscent of Capt. Sully Sullenberger), but there's the troubling matter of a toxicology report that, if made public, could ruin Whitaker's heroic reputation [...]

The Geeks Of Doom Round Up 21: John Dies At The End and The Pierces

The Geeks Of Doom Round Up continues with our 21st episode. This week, Andy gives us the run-down of the upcoming adaptation of the David Wong story, John Dies At The End, starring Rob Mayes, and directed by Don Coscarelli. Later, Greg brings on some creepy music from The Pierces called "Secret."

Later in the show, we take a look at the news that Disney has acquired Lucasfilm, and will be releasing Star Wars Episode VII in 2015. We drill down into the news and analyze why George Lucas decided to sell his company when he did. We also have a glance at a new 90-minute Halo 4 movie, entitled Forward Unto Dawn available for online viewing and will also be included in the Limited Edition release of the game [...]
