Click here for details about seeing all 6 films before The Force Awakens!

Story by Matt Cummings

If the new poster and second trailer (click HERE to see the date) for The Force Awakens has whetted your appetite to revisit the Star Wars universe, you'll want to read on. It appears that all six original films will be shown together at a Star Wars Marathon Event. Much like the build up to 2012's The Avengers and Age of Ultron, audiences will be given a chance to re-live (or live for your first-timers) the original movies in the theaters.

According to the press release at StarWars.com, moviegoers will be treated to a 2D presentation of The Phantom Menace and conclude with the opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 3D. In addition, ticketholders will also receive a lanyard featuring exclusive marathon art. The event will happen on December 17.

In addition, several theater chains are offering exclusive items if you attend their showings. Here are the major players:
Regal Cinemas: Hosting an event called Star Wars Saturdays, from December 19 to January 9, the first 500 guests to see the film in IMAX will receive a collectable ticket featuring unique art. New art will be revealed each week.

AMC Theatres: Each Sunday from December 20 to January 10, guests who purchase an IMAX 3D ticket will receive an AMC-exclusive Star Wars print from artist Dan Mumford, with posters released each week. In addition, Walt Disney World will host an Opening Night Event on December 17, where participants can see the film at AMC Disney Springs 24 and then celebrate together at a private after-hours party at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Tickets are available online only at AMCtheatres.com/StarWarsWDW.

Cinemark: Cinemark will be giving RealD 3D Star Wars glasses to those who buy a Marathon Event pass, or by attending the first show of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Thursday 12/17 in Cinemark XD. Fans can also get the glasses with the purchase of a Star Wars concession combo, coming in November.

Alamo Drafthouse: Drafthouse's advanced ticketing process will get you two exclusive, limited Star Wars: The Force Awakens collectible items: an officially licensed Mondo-designed pint glass and the first ever, double-sized collector’s issue of their very own magazine, BIRTH. MOVIES. DEATH., celebrating 40 years of the Star Wars saga!

Fandango: Making sure they remain relevant through the process, Fandango ticket buyers will be automatically entered into a sweepstakes for the chance to win a trip to the film’s world premiere. Additionally, ten runners-up can win a collectible “Dark Side” or “Light Side” prize pack.

Get Ready For THE MARINE 5: BATTLEGROUND

WWE® STUDIOS AND SONY PICTURES WORLDWIDE ACQUISITIONS TO PARTNER ON
THE MARINE 5: BATTLEGROUND

Starring Six WWE® Superstars The Miz®, Maryse Ouellet, Heath Slater, Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel and Naomi.

 WWE® Studios and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions (SPWA) today announced that the two studios will partner on the upcoming action film, The Marine 5: Battleground. Directed by James Nunn (Eliminators), the film will feature WWE® Superstars The Miz®, Maryse Ouellet, Heath Slater, Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel, and Naomi. The film will begin production on May 31st in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

The Miz ® returns as Jake Carter, an ex-Marine who served in the Middle East and is now saving civilian lives stateside as an EMT. After responding to an emergency call in an abandoned parking lot, Carter finds himself protecting an injured man from a ruthless biker gang. With the odds stacked against him, Carter utilizes his unique Marine skills to stop the bikers’ rampage before any more innocent blood is…

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Featurette “Legacy”

Watch the new “Legacy” featurette, as Kevin Feige joins other filmmakers and the cast of Marvel Studios’ AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR to chronicle the growth and success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from its auspicious beginning with “Iron Man” in 2008 to the upcoming tour de force “AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.”

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.



Anthony and Joe Russo direct the film, which is produced by Kevin Feige. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Trinh Tran, Jon Favreau, James Gunn and Stan Lee are the executive producers. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay. “Avengers: Infinity…

David Leitch Directing Hobbs & Shaw Spin-Off

As Universal guns the engine on the first planned spin-off from the Fast & Furious franchise, the studio has pinpointed the person it wants to wrangle Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham for the film. John Wick and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch is directing the film.

It makes sense that a film featuring the two would demand a director who has proven they can bring action scenes to life, and Leitch – who moved from stunt co-ordination and second unit work to co-direct the first Wick with Chad Stahelski – has certainly shown he's got the flair for it.

Chris Morgan has written the script for the new film, which doesn't yet have a name, but should boast Johnson's Luke Hobbs and Statham's recently redeemed Deckard Shaw on their own mission, minus any candy asses. Universal wants this one in cinemas for July next year, and so it needs the wheels to hit the road quickly.

Leitch's most recent job was directing Deadpool 2, which opens in the UK on 16 May and has jus…
