Collider Jedi Council - Mark Hamill Confirms Original Opening of The Force Awakens
Today is May 5, 2016 and it’s another Collider Jedi Council hosted by Kristian Harloff, with John Campea, Tiffany Smith and John Rocha.
 
Chris Miller Teases Young Han Solo Movie
 
The council starts by looking at the recent tweet Chris Miller gave the fans in preparation of his next movie (and Phil Lord’s), Young Han Solo. The image is a simple one, Han Solo’s iconic blaster laying on a table. The council discuss whether this is anything, with some commenting on how it actually got them very excited
 
Mark Hamill Confirms Original Opening of The Force Awakens
 
Before The Force Awakens opened, a rumored was going around that had many, including the council, convinced it was nothing but a hoax and oh, so very bad. That of a supposed opening that featured a severed hand holding a lightsaber floating in space. No way. Turns out, it was true. Mark Hamill spoke about the original opening, confirming it was there but ultimately cut. Thankfully. The whole panel agreed – it was a stupid idea that didn’t “feel” like a Star Wars opening.   
 
Riz Ahmed Talks Rogue One 
 
The actor talked with Entertainment Weekly about the level of detail involved in the making of Rogue One and shared his first memories of the Star Wars universe. He said that he didn’t follow the storyline but remembers the images (from the original) and they were seared onto his brain. On set, he felt it was a bunch of trippy set pieces for him.
 
Anakin Reference Cut from The Force Awakens 
 
J.J. Abrams revealed in an interview that he wanted the flags found in Maz Kanata’s castle to be an Easter Egg haven for fans of the series. In the flags we saw a number of things that were call backs to the original movies. A big one being Boba Fett’s flag. Turns out there was a flag seen in the trailers that was from Anakin’s pod in Phantom Menace. But later it was cut out of the original release because, as J.J. said, he didn’t want to include podracing references.
 
The Force Awakens Cantina Song Now Available
 
Many fans asked for it and yesterday, they got it. Lin Manuel Miranda and J.J. Abrams released the original Jabba Flow, the song that was performed in Maz Kanata’s Castle, in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Miranda and Abrams didn’t only write and produce the song, but they also performed the track; which is available now on iTunes.
 
What’s the Deal with Canon?
 
Here now is the segment called What’s the Deal with Canon – a discussion on everything in the world of canon that isn’t one of the movies, be it Episodes or Star Wars’ Story. 
 
In this segment, a very special Bloodline (non-spoiler) review followed by the special interview Kristian had with the author of Bloodline, Claudia Gray! After the interview, the panel discuss the interview, and the book. Giving their thoughts on the first novel set close to the events of The Force Awakens. After, they look at a report of a new Star Wars video game in the works. Because, we need more video games set in the Star Wars Universe. 
 
A Short Time Ago, In a Tweet Far, Far Away…

Collider Movie Talk - First Look At Power Ranger Reboot New Suits

On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (May 5th, 2016) Kristian Harloff, John Campea, Dennis Tzeng, and Jon Schnepp discuss the following:

-First look released of the Power Rangers

-Russell Crowe cast as Dr. Jekyll/Hyde in The Mummy

-Director Josh Boone teases characters from New Mutants

-Andrew Garfield teams up with It Follows director for noir thriller

-Arnold Schwazenegger to star in comedy Why We’re Killing Gunther

-Daisy Ridley and Naomi Watts cast in Hamlet reimagining

-Opening this Week (Brought to you by AMC Theatres)

-Mail Bag

The first image of the new Power Rangers reboot costumes has been released by Entertainment Weekly, giving fans their first glimpse at the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers look after their heroic transformations. Per EW, the costumes are described as “translucent extraterrestrial armor that crystallizes around their bodies.” 

Deadline is reporting that Russell Crowe is joining the growing legion of A list stars taking part in Universal Pictures’ shared universe of monster movies. The Gladiator star is in early talks to play a role Deadline calls “Jekyll-like” opposite Tom Cruise in The Mummy. The trade says it is unclear whether this could lead to a future spinoff or not. Alex Kurtzman is directing the Jon Spaihts written script with Chris Morgan overseeing the whole monster’s universe with Kurtzman at Universal. 

20th Century Fox is preparing to dig deeper into their X-Men Universe with writer/director Josh Boone’s upcoming superhero film, X-Men: The New Mutants. The core team was created by Chris Claremont and artist Bob McLeod in the 80s, with mutant names unfamiliar to the general movie-going audience; but very familiar to the die hard fans. Taking to his Instagram account yesterday, Boone revealed the line-up of New Mutants we can expect to see that include Magik, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Cannonball, Sunspot, and Warlock. 

BUY OR SELL

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Andrew Garfield is attached to star in Under the Silver Lake, a crime thriller written and to be directed by David Robert Mitchell, the filmmaker behind the highly acclaimed horror movie It Follows. Details are being kept under wraps, with the only information available about the project described as a modern-day noir crime thriller set in Los Angeles. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam will make his directorial debut on the action comedy Why We’re Killing Gunther, with Arnold Schwarzenegger tapped to headline. Schwarzenegger will star alongside Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam in a plot revolving around “a group of eccentric international assassins who become fed up with Gunther, the world’s greatest hitman (who also happens to be an arrogant show-off), and decide to kill him. 

In a report from Deadline, Daisy Ridley and Naomi Watts are in final negotiations to star in Ophelia, a re-imagining of the Shakespeare classic, Hamlet, as told through the eyes of the play’s famously doomed heroine. The project is based on the award-winning novel by Lisa Klein that has Claire McCarthy directing from a script by Mad Men writer Semi Chellas. The story will be set in the 14th century but spoken in a contemporary voice which will put Ophelia center stage.
