Hump day is looking shinier than ever here at Movie Morsels, now that we’ve finally got a new still of Gwendoline Christie as Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ chrome-plated Captain Phasma, as well as a new image of Poe Dameron. Plus, our first featurette from Suicide Squad, the latest on Star Trek Beyond, and more!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
We’ve been seeing a lot of Rey, Finn, and BB-8 lately, and of course, the looming shadow of Kylo Ren, but not as much of The Force Awakens‘ other new characters, Captain Phasma and Poe Dameron. Fortunately, Empire magazine has new exclusive photos of the First Order’s Captain and the hotshot heroic pilot. Check ’em out…
Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Max von Sydow. It opens everywhere on December 18th.
During the recent shooting of Suicide Squad, a handful of photos surfaced of Jared Leto’s Jokermobile. Now, via a Fox news affiliate in Florida, we’ve got our first featurette from the film, focusing on that eye-catching purple roadster…
Starring Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, Scott Eastwood, Jay Hernandez, Karen Fukuhara, and Cara Delevingne, director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad lands on August 5, 2016.
Star Trek Beyond
If you like your Enterprise as large as possible, we’ve got great news — Star Trek Beyond will get an IMAX release when it opens on July 22, 2016. Director Justin Lin, who’s had some experience with the format via the Fast and Furious films, comments, “IMAX provides a one-of-a-kind moviegoing experience to audiences all over the world. I am excited to bring the newest journey into the Star Trek universe to its screens.”
Star Trek Beyond is (of course) the third film in Paramount’s reboot of the original Trek, and stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Idris Elba, and Sofia Boutell.
