We’re already insanely excited for DC’s upcoming Birds of Prey film, which stars Margot Robbie, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. And now that excitement increases with the casting of everyone’s favorite Jedi Master.
For a movie that never actually got officially announced, it feels like we’ve been hearing about the prospect of a Star Wars spinoff film starring Ewan McGregor as the galaxy’s favorite Jedi-in-Exile, Obi-Wan Kenobi, forever. That’s mainly thanks to all the times people have peppered McGregor with questions about his…
Remember the first time you tried alcohol? How it was gross and off-putting but eventually it got better? Later, maybe you grew to like it but you always knew something wasn’t right about it? That was the first (admittedly strange) thing I thought of after seeing Disney’s Christopher Robin, a movie that starts weird,…
What happened to Danny Torrance after his father tried to kill him in The Shining? Stephen King tackled that very question in his 2013 novel Doctor Sleep—and now, Ewan McGregor is in talks to play Danny in the film version of the story.
Come for Ewan McGregor shrieking “POOH!?” in the most chipper accent possible. Stay for the absolute adorableness of Pooh and friends going on their greatest quest yet: to save Christopher Robin from... a mid-life crisis?
I wasn’t ready to see a live-action Winnie the Pooh this morning. I just wasn’t.
You can go to any website and find a list of all the winners from Sunday’s 75th annual Golden Globes. But we’re io9 and Gizmodo. We don’t cover many of the major films or TV shows nominated. So, below, we’ve just curated the ones you, the readers of our sites, would actually care about.
Disney and Lucasfilm have yet to formally announce if an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is going to happen, but Sideshow Collectibles is more than happy to give us a sneak peek of what the character might look like if the film gets made.
Well, it’s finally happening. The Hollywood Reporter says that Stephen Daldry, the Oscar-nominated director behind Billy Elliot and The Hours, is in early talks to direct and develop a script about Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ewan McGregor, however, is not yet attached.
After that fantastic teaser trailer, we’ve been patiently waiting for something, anything, in the way of information for the upcoming live-action musical version of Disney’ Beauty and the Beast. We finally have it.
And you cannot blame the guy. He has been asked about it a billion times, he said he had no problem returning, and now people think he’s pushing for a movie. So count him out.
Total Film asked a wide variety of actors and directors if they'd like to be involved in J.J. Abrams' upcoming Episode VII. As it turns out, yes, most actors would like to be part of a movie that will likely make $1 billion... except for Jason Statham, who is far too important to lower himself to Ewok-level.
We don't know what to do with Bryan Singers' Jack The Giant Slayer. It's shooting for fun and epic but landing somewhere in strangely silly. This longer trailer finally shows off the giant's land and the evil villain Stanley Tucci (flanked by a bunch of human remains). The best part is when the giants roll up Ewan…
"Choose life, choose a career..." blah blah blah, you don't have to do any of that tonight, just choose to watch this movie. Trainspotting is one of the best book-to-movie adaptations ever. Ev-er. The characters from Irvine Welsh's novel are brought to life with perfection.
What does it take for an uptight science geek to get the hot girl? Apparently, it's all about geo-engineering. Ladies love it when you terraform the Earth!
Paul Torday's Salmon Fishing in the Yemen was one of our favorite examples of a book that's secretly science fiction — about a fisheries scientist who undertakes the mad, ambitious project of introducing salmon to the Yemen. Including all of the bioengineering (and regular engineering) that goes into that.
He's a chef and she's a scientist — what starts out as a opposites-attract movie swiftly changes course as people all over the world fall victim to a disease which nullifies their sensory perceptions. The first sense to go is smell, then taste, then hearing...you get where we're going. And while the world goes mad,…
What happens when you meet your one true love right before the whole world falls apart? Ewan McGregor and Eva Green's mysterious new flick Perfect Sense, directed by David Mackenzie, is two parts love story, one part post-apocalyptic horror.
Salmon Fishing In The Yemen by Paul Today completely blew me away with its story of a scientist who's hired to introduce salmon into the wadi, so the Yemenis can go fly-fishing. Now it'll be a movie starring Ewan McGregor.
