In just two years, the talk of the impending summer may not be a Marvel superhero but a new “Star Wars” film.
Variety and the Associated Press report that Disney Studios head Alan Horn said today that the seventh “Star Wars” movie, being directed by J.J. Abrams, would be a summer 2015 release with the other movies due in 2017 and 2019.
Horn, who appeared at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, said the studio will alternate films in the new trilogy with spin-off films drawn from the same universe.
The latest "Man of Steel" trailer raises the question of just what that "S" stands for -- in his world, it means something else. But the movie looks terrific with a knockout cast and rich questions about identity and hope.
The next Oscar telecast is still 10 months away but it has a pair of producers with familiar faces and names.
Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will be back for a second time, Academy President Hawk Koch announced today. The Academy Awards will air on March 2, 2014.
In a statement issued by the Academy, Koch said: “Craig and Neil have the overwhelming support of the Academy’s Governors to produce the Oscars again in 2014. In order to establish continuity with this year’s enormously successful show, we felt it was important to give these consummate professionals the green light now to begin creating another great evening.”
No word on who might be hosting the next time around.
