EMPIRE – It had already been revealed that Star Wars: Episode VII would screen in IMAX cinemas, but until today it had not been officially announced that parts of the film would be shot in IMAX as well, with the following tweet from @BadRobot making it very clear indeed.
This announcement follows on from a similar trick pulled by director J.J. Abrams for Star Trek Into Darkness, which also boasted a decent chunk of extra-largesse – 50 minutes’ worth – in among the not-quite-as-big stuff.
This means that we’ll be seeing plenty of film for Star Wars: Episode VII, with the 35mm it has proudly boasted about before now being complemented by 70mm to boot – and for some stunning desert-set sequences, from the looks of things.
Other recent Star Wars news has seen two new actors being cast, which you can find out more about here, and if you feel like getting extra-excited about the new journey to a galaxy far, far away, here’s our 30 Greatest Star Wars Characters feature.
Starring veterans Hamill, Ford, Fisher, Daniels, Mayhew as well as Wars newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie and Max von Sydow, Star Wars: Episode VII will be out on December 18, 2015.
EMPIRE -In 1770, Captain Cook navigating the eastern fringes of the Australian continent mapping the coastline, counting wombats and generally dicing with death in an intrepid and largely clunge-free voyage. Two hundred and forty four years later, Jay, Will, Simon and Neil will be trying to rectify that oversight in The Inbetweeners 2 when they land Down Under with “puss-ay” in mind and a wad of Aussie dollars in their pockets. The movie has a new trailer that you can enjoy/savour/cringe in horror from below.
Boardshort wankers and bongo players beware because the foursome are touching down in Australia to pursue fauna of an entirely different kind. Alongside Gap Yah types, Bryon Bay hippies and party-hardy Aussies, all the old staples will be present and (in)correct. There’ll be jokes about Will’s mum, Simon still has girlfriend issues and Jay is one joke from prison.
Say The Inbetweeners’ creators, writing/directing team Iain Morris and Damon Beesley: “We’re especially happy with the trailer as we think it’s funny and – we promise – none of the best jokes are in it. None. We did that so that hopefully you’ll still get surprised in the cinema, and enjoy the film even more.”
James Buckley, Blake Harrison, Joe Thomas and Simon Bird are back in front of the camera, joined by recent Star Wars addition Daisy Ridley, Celeste Cotton, David Schaal, Larissa Jones and Susan Wokoma. The Inbetweeners 2 is set to bother our cinemas on August 6.
ANDOVER ADVERTISER – THE lead actress in the new Star Wars film also stars in an Andover-made movie to be screened for the first time next month.
The local production Scrawl was filmed on the town’s streets and at Sparsholt, and features Star Wars’ actress Daisy Ridley.
Earlier this month, Daisy was named the new female lead for Star Wars VII and although her role has not yet been confirmed by Disney and Lucasfilm, she is set to act alongside Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.
But before her Hollywood debut, the 21-yearold, who has also appeared in Channel 4’s Youngers and has made guest appearances in Casualty and Silent Witness, filmed around Andover for Andover College’s student production of Scrawl.
Daisy came on board for the project two years ago while she was filming Casualty, and the horror film is set to be shown to students and supporters of Andover College next month. It will then be sent to festivals across the world in the hope that it will pick up accolades.

HEY U GUYS – When British actress Daisy Ridley was announced as being part of Star Wars Episode VII, many moviegoers responded with a resounding, “Who?!” As one of the principal members of the cast, she will likely have a major role in the J.J. Abrams helmed movie, but is very much an unknown compared to the rest.
She does have some impressive television credits though, and will next be seen in British independent horror movie, Scrawl. Written and directed by Peter Hearn, the movie will be featured at the Andover Arts Festival in June before being submitted to film festivals during 2014/15.
Written and directed by Peter Hearn, Scrawl was shot over a three week period in the South of England in 2013 as well as extra days throughout 2014. It also stars Mark Forester-Evans (The Cave), Elizabeth Boag (Metro 7 bis/Chasing Robert Barker) and Nathalie Pownall (White Box/Twin Suns).
