Watch the first trailer for Fifty Shades Freed, a movie about joint assets
‘Mrs. Grey will see you now’

The first teaser trailer for Fifty Shades Freed, the final installment in Universal’s wildly profitable adaptation of E.L. James’ pulp romance series, is here. Thank goodness! The film was shot at the same time as last year’s Fifty Shades Darker (which The Verge’s scientific analysis found was actually 94 shades darker). These two films were directed by James Foley, following Sam Taylor-Johnson’s resignation from the franchise after the first installment.

Fifty Shades Freed is set to be released on Valentine’s Day weekend 2018, and the full trailer — which will presumably be accompanied by a sexy remix of a famous sexy song, or a new sexy song by a famous person whose “thing” isn’t exactly sex appeal yet but could be their next rebrand — is coming in November.

For now, this teaser gives us only a loose idea of what comes next for Ana Steele and Christian Grey, two weirdo lovebirds who got engaged at the end of the last film. Ana will store a wedding dress on a chandelier; Ana will be delighted to know that she now co-owns a private jet; Ana will be less delighted to learn that she co-owns a gun; and Ana will be in some sort of grave physical danger. Perhaps the physical danger has something to do with the man who lit a photo of Christian on fire in the last seconds of Fifty Shades Darker, simultaneously staring across a pond at his firework-backlit wedding proposal. It was very subtle, so it’s impossible to say for sure whether this is the case.

It is also hard to believe that this will be the last Fifty Shades film, given how much money the first two made and especially considering how long every franchise marketed to boys gets to drag on. There is one unadapted E.L. James novel told from the perspective of Christian Grey instead of Ana, but so far there are no plans to adapt it. That’s likely because it contains all of the events of the first Fifty Shades book, rewritten from the point of view of an extremely self-serious man. Damn.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi: New Image Of Luke’s Dark Look

There’s still no sign of a new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, so we have to find fresh looks of the movie where we can. The latest comes via Hungarian film magazine Cinemania Mozimánia, a new image of Luke Skywalker as tweeted by the man who plays him, Mark Hamill.

Luke, of course, has been in hiding since his attempt to train new Jedi came a cropper and led to tragedy. But with Daisy Ridley’s Rey finally tracking him down at the end of The Force Awakens, Luke is reluctantly drawn back into the clash between good and evil.

And Hamill recently talked to The Associated Press about his character’s mindset, which might explain the darker choice of robes. “Luke changed, I think, more than the other characters in the original trilogy, from callow farm boy to a Jedi in training to finally a Jedi master. What you’re talking about is what really fascinated me. Between Return Of The Jedi and Force Awakens, there’s just decades of history that’s unknown,” he says.

“So I was wondering how they’re going to handle all this. Now, obviously, with Force Awakens, J.J. (Abrams) had a full plate. It was inevitable that they would push me down the line. I was sorry I wasn’t able to work with any of the original actors again. But it’s not about us anymore. In this new one, I was saying to (Last Jedi director) Rian Johnson: ‘I need to know my backstory.” It was kind of unclear. You read where he is now and what he’s doing now and sort of have to fill in the blanks for yourself. So I did do a backstory myself. It’s not about Luke anymore, so it’s not really important. But I had to make sense of it for myself. What Rian came up with, I was stunned.”

How much of that will be revealed to the rest of us remains to be seen, but Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be in UK cinemas on 15 December.

Maz Kanata’s Role in Star Wars: The last Jedy

Over the last few days, a bunch of new information has been revealed about Star Wars: the Last Jedi and the yet-to-be-titled Episode IX. We have finally learned how Maz Kanata fits into this upcoming eighth installment, got a better look at the First Order’s black BB-unit droid, and heard some rumblings that Collin Trevorrow’s film may return to Jakku.
Maz Kanata’s Role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Lupita Nyong’o‘s performance capture Force Awakens character Maz Kanata returns for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but we’ve heard that she plays a smaller part in this sequel story. MakingStarWars finally has learned some details about Kanata’s role in the upcoming Star Wars film. According to the new report, since the destruction of her castle on Takodana, Maz has been forced to become more mobile and take more of a role in the criminal underworld.
Maz apparently helps the Resistance by pointing them toward a “mysterious new ally,” a notorious slicer (AKA hacker) named DJ, the mysterious character played by Benicio del Toro. We know that Finn and Rose go on a mission to the casino city of Canto Bight in search of this human hacker, who plays whatever side is financially beneficial to him at that moment. We’ve long believed that DJ might be an intergalactic bad guy in this film (del Toro’s early comments didn’t really help this matter), but if Maz Kanata is sending Finn and Rose to him, he can’t be all bad
Will Episode 9 Return To Jakku?
In an interview with The Everything Geek Podcast (via MSW), two extras from Star Wars: The Force Awakens mentioned that filming might return to Abu Dhabi for next year’s shoot for Colin Trevorrow’s untitled Star Wars: Episode IX. Mel Pickup (who played Athgar Heece) and DJ Mark Pickup (who played a scavenger on Jakku) claim to have heard that Lucasfilm will be returning to the sand dunes used as Rey’s home world of Jakku for the ninth installment of the Skywalker saga. Of course, this could just be baseless production-level speculation at this point, but it would make sense to return to Jakku to explore Rey’s past.

 

The 15 Best Movies to Watch in Fall 2017 Superheroes, creepy crime, and family dramas to warm your chilly, autumnal heart.

Say goodbye to bloated summer blockbusters, and say hello to a Rodarte-helmed drama, Wonder Woman’s return, Channing Tatum in a cowboy hat, and Ryan Gosling in futuristic shearling. Phew! Here are the best 19 movies to see at cinemas this fall.

Dolores (September1)
Activist Dolores Huerta worked with Cesar Chavez to found farm-workers’ unions—yet her name isn’t tremendously well known. This documentary highlights her contributions, including comments from Hillary Clinton and Gloria Steinem, and showcases Huerta’s own positive and persistent point of view: She may be 87-years-old, but she’s still fighting.

IT (September8)
With a September 8 premiere date, there’s plenty of time to decide whether this adaptation of the Stephen King horror classic can/will take pride of place in a Halloween line-up. Even pre-release, viewers seem to have decided it is worthy of checking out: The trailer broke viewing records, beating The Fate of the Furious for most views in a single day. Numbers aside, the film is certainly not likely to change anyone’s opinions about clowns.

Woodshock (September 22)      

  Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy collaborate with muse Kirsten Dunst in a very different kind of project. In the fashion siblings’ directorial debut, Dunst stars as a woman in the grip of drug-induced paranoia. The result is as gorgeously dreamy as you’d expect. Game of Thrones’ newest fashion plate, Pilou Asbaek, also stars.

Stronger (September 22)                  

    Jake Gyllenhaal puts everything into his portrayal of Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, in this true story based on the runner’s memoir about the tragedy and what followed.

Battle of the Sexes (September 22)   

Depending on which way you look at it, Battle of the Sexes could be exactly the satisfyingly feminist historical smackdown you need right now, or a depressing reminder that, wow, there really have always been and will always be men who don’t believe women are capable of anything great. We’re also curious about how the friction between Emma Stone’s Billie Jean King and Steve Carell’s Bobby Riggs will play out.

Unrest (September 22)                      

  When Jennifer Brea first fell ill, doctors couldn’t identify what was happening to her. And when the diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome finally came her way, she discovered many in the medical—and wider—community were dismissive of the condition that kept her in bed, in pain, and sometimes unable to speak. She discovered others in the same boat and documented the process herself: This revealing film is the result.

Blade Runner 2049 (October 6)        

  Even though just the mere idea of Ryan Gosling wearing a shearling jacket in the future is very appealing, the reality is so much better. Of course, that’s not the only important element of this year’s Blade Runner (although it is very important); the film looks to be an utterly stylish, suitably apocalyptic sequel to the 1982 sci-fi film. With Robin Wright, Jared Leto, and Harrison Ford onboard, this October release is bound to do justice to the original.

Mother! (October 13)

If all you know about this movie is the bizarre poster featuring Jennifer Lawrence proffering her torn-out heart, you’re not alone. There’s no fall movie release more mysterious than this Darren Aronofsky horror offering, despite its high-calibre cast (Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris also star). Our guess? It’s going to be just a little gory.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer (October 27)                                                            

Nicole Kidman reunites with The Beguiled co-star Colin Farrell for yet another odd, tense, disturbing psychological thriller. The Lobster director Yorgos Lanthimos is bringing to screen the story of a cardiologist’s strange relationship with a teenage boy, Martin (Barry Keoghan). And if you think that trope will play out predictably, think again. Add in a small but blistering role for Alicia Silverstone, and this is a film that will make fall feel that much colder.

Thor: Ragnarok (November 3)          

Why do we have to wait until November to see this glorious romp of a movie? I’ll be applying metallic makeup every day until Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, and Mark Ruffalo unite on screen to take us to the end of the world. If this trailer is anything to go by, Taika Waititi’s vision of the apocalypse looks like Blade Runner and a M.A.C. counter collided in space, and we’re here for it.

A Bad Moms Christmas (November3)

 “Remember when the holidays were actually fun?” Rhetorical question or not, it’s one lots of beleaguered parents—hell, anyone who spends holidays with their family—will relate to. If you need to let off a bit of steam ahead of the Christmas season, do it with bad moms Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hah

Wonder (November 17)

Wonder will leave you sobbing, and not just because it stars both Owen Wilson and Julia Roberts. They’ll play the Pullmans, parents of Auggie—whose facial differences draw out the best and worst in others when he attends school for the first time in fifth grade. The R.J. Palacio book it’s based on is a complete cryfest, and by the looks of the trailer, the big-screen adaptation is going to require a good stack of tissues, too. (Also, hello, Daveed Diggs!)

Murder on the Orient Express (November 10)

Kenneth Branagh’s Belgian accent, gigantic grey mustache, and directorial prowess aside, it’s unlikely there’ll be a false note in this new version of the Agatha Christie mystery. An outstanding cast—featuring Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer, Olivia Colman, Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe—will keep audiences on their toes as they attempt to keep up with Hercule Poirot as he investigates the devilish twists and turns that lead to murder.

Justice League (November 17)  

          The superhero train isn’t stopping any time soon. Which is fine with us—even though Wonder Woman only obliterated our movie screens a short few months ago, we’re ravenous for more. Gal Gadot will return as the beloved superhero in Justice League, which brings Wonder Woman together with Batman (Ben Affleck), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller).

Call Me By Your Name (November 24)

 People are already brushing up on the André Aciman novel this beautiful coming-of-age film is based on; after rave reviews at Sundance, it’s likely to capture audiences on a bigger scale when it’s released in November. Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer star as two young men drawn to each other one heady summer in the north of Italy.
