Captain Phasma was one of the characters people were looking forward to most in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” only to be disappointed by the amount of screen time she had on screen.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will rectify that. Director Rian Johnson said in an interview:

“Gwendoline Christie is one of my favorite people, and you get to see her in action which I think is going to be really fun. That character is just so damn cool looking. Like, okay, let’s see what we can do with her. Let’s put her in action and see what happens.”

The anticipated sequel starring Daisey Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Mark Hamill and Carrie Fischer hits theaters Dec. 15.

Here’s the first trailer for “Inside Llewyn Davis” from Joel and Ethan Coen.

The film stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Adam Driver, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman and more. Looks amazing (but don’t all Coen brothers’ movies?)!

Screenwriter William Monahan wrote one of my favorite films bar none, “The Departed”. He also wrote “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” and the upcoming “Oblivion”. Now he’s getting a chance to write and direct “Mojave”, a thriller which, from FirstShowing.net:

“The story involves a man who escapes into the desert and finds a “doppelganger-like antagonist” and gets caught in an intense whirlwind of violence and crime. In our modern culture the phrase “doppelganger” is used to mean “lookalike,” but its folklore origins often associate it as being a paranormal double of someone else”

Jason Clarke (“Zero Dark Thirty”) and Oscar Isaac (“The Bourne Legacy”) will play the leads.
