It’s Day 2 of Disney’s D23 in Anaheim, and the company’s mega-movies are front and center.

Horn’s preview in front of 6,800 often-delirious fans drew on Hollywood’s gaudiest roster of hitmakers.

Mark Hamill Hasn't Seen Star Wars Since the Special Edition Released in 1997

Mark Hamill Hasn't Seen Star Wars Since the Special Edition Released in 1997
Mark Hamill, the man behind Luke Skywalker, hasn't seen the original Star Wars in more than 20 years. The actor has revealed that the last time he watched the classic 1977 sci-fi movie that made him famous was in 1997, when the original trilogy was re-released in theaters. And the only reason Hamill did so at the time was because his kids wanted to see it on the big screen for themselves.

The reveal was made by Mark Hamill on Twitter. George Lucas famously tinkered with the original movies, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, adding in digital effects and changing some things, for the Special Editions. Responding to a fan who asked how often Hamill watches Star Wars, the actor revealed it's pretty infrequently, as the last time he did was when Lucas' infamous re-release came out. Here's what Hamill had to say.

Roman Polanski movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Chinatown,’ ‘Rosemary’s Baby,’ ‘The Pianist’
Roman Polanski celebrates his 86th birthday on August 18, 2019.

In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 15 of his greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Apocalypse Now: Final Cut Review

Some movies demand to be seen on the big screen. I’m thinking of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Lawrence of Arabia, Andrei Rublev and yes, Apocalypse Now. And in the case of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 masterpiece, now you can do just that.

Playing in AMC theaters everywhere, the latest cut of the Vietnam War story can now be cherished in IMAX with the latest in Dolby Atmos sound. Just when you thought this nightmare couldn’t seem any more real, Apocalypse Now: Final Cut comes along to blow your mind in a whole new way.

By this point, most of you will know how it opens. Martin Sheen’s Captain Willard is laying in bed; his chest hair as dense as the Vietnam jungle. Staring at the fan spinning above him, we hear the sound of helicopter wings playing over The Rolling Stones’ “This is the End.” Only, it’s the beginning.

Film Review: ‘Zz Top: That Little Ol’ Band From Texas’

Film Review: ‘Zz Top: That Little Ol’ Band From Texas’
Settling in to watch “Zz Top: That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” you may have a burning question that applies to almost no other rock documentary, and that is: Who, exactly, are these guys? The ones behind the beards?

If you’re old enough, of course, you probably know that Zz Top started out, in 1969, as a trio of wild-and-woolly cowboy rockers who played their own brand of dirty amped-up tin-shack blues. When their first hit, the lascivious redneck boogie “La Grange,” was released in 1973, there had arguably never been a sonic blast that raw, rough, and nasty on the rock charts (though “Whole Lotta Love” and the opening riff of “Spirit in the Sky” paved the way for it). Zz Top didn’t sound like a “popular” band. They sounded like the kind of band you hear in a scuzzy Texas roadhouse, or maybe on a backwoods campus.

A Lucasfilm Executive Has Been Busting Star Wars Myths On Social Media

Star Wars is arguably as popular now as it has ever been, with the mythology of the long-running franchise passed down through generations after over forty years of movies, spinoffs, television shows, holiday specials, video games, and countless billions in merchandise. It’s an impressive feat for Star Wars to remain so culturally relevant despite having existed since 1977, and with numerous movie trilogies and Disney Plus shows in development, the brand isn’t going anywhere for a long time.

The Ultimate Indiana Jones Gift Guide

Indiana Jones has been a legendary part of pop culture and cinema history for almost four decades, beginning in 1981 with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas's masterpiece Raiders of the Lost Ark. Taking its cue from '30s comic strips and Saturday matinee serials with heroes like Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers, the two innovative filmmakers set out to recreate the rollicking adventures of their youth. What they created was a timeless classic with high-speed chases, pithy one-liners, and one iconic leading man in Harrison Ford.

The franchise grew to include several sequels, taking the noted archaeologist and treasure hunter all around the world in search of mystical artifacts. With lush locations, top-notch special effects from the team behind Star Wars Industrial Light and Magic, and a great cast of memorable characters, a legacy was cemented that fans have enjoyed for generations.

Indiana Jones 5: 10 Scrapped Ideas From Previous Sequels It Should Use

Although it’s been delayed a bunch of times and Harrison Ford isn’t getting any younger, the fifth Indiana Jones movie is happening. Steven Spielberg is returning to the director’s chair, George Lucas is attached as an executive producer, and they’re just waiting for the right script. Spielberg and Lucas have always been notoriously picky about the scripts for Indy movies, so there are dozens of drafts for the previous sequels filled with brilliant ideas, storylines, and concepts that were entirely scrapped by the final version.

Here Are All The Fox Films That Disney Saved After The Merger

Though Disney’s recent acquisition of 21st Century Fox has seemingly led to the axing of quite a few projects, there are still plenty of upcoming films that look to have survived the transition, many of which are scheduled to hit theaters in the next couple of years.

For one thing, you have Underwater, the story of a crew of underwater researchers who must fight for their lives after an earthquake devastates their subterranean lab. With a cast that includes Kristen Stewart, T.J. Miller, Jessica Henwick and Vincent Cassel, the film is slated to come out on January 10th, 2020.

After that, Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn returns to the helm for The King’s Man, the confusingly titled prequel to the popular spy series.

Film Feature: HollywoodChicago.com Remembers Rutger Hauer

Chicago – Cult character actor Rutger Hauer passed away late last month, but the mark he made with his array of performances carried through two generation of admirers, even receiving the honor of Best Dutch Actor of the (20th) Century in 1999. He died on July 19th, 2019, in his native Netherlands. He was 75.

He was born in Breukelen, the Netherlands, to actor parents. After a couple stints in the military, he graduated from the Academy for Theater and Dance in Amsterdam in 1967, and made his TV debut two years later when director Paul Verhoeven cast him in the Dutch medieval action drama “Floris.” His film debut came in 1973 with “Turkish Delight,” and he performed mostly in Dutch films during the 1970s, including work with Verhoeven again on “Solider of Orange” (1977) and “Spetters” (1980).

Although Hauer made one international English language film previously, his American debut came in 1981 with “Nighthawks.” His was unforgettable one

Star Wars Fan Theory Suggests That Rey’s Parents Will Appear In The Rise Of Skywalker

Even though it’s set to release in a few months, there’s still so much we don’t know about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The third and final installment in the much-beloved Sequel Trilogy is set to pit the Resistance against the First Order once more, with the never-ending conflict between the Jedi and the Sith reaching its climax. After complaints about The Last Jedi‘s plot and character arcs hit an all-time high, Lucasfilm decided to hand the franchise back to J.J. Abrams, who helmed The Force Awakens.

While The Last Jedi itself wasn’t a terrible movie by any means – our very own Matt Donato rather enjoyed it – some took issue with the trek out to Canto Bight, the lack of development for Supreme Leader Snoke and the reveal that Rey’s parents were insignificant nobodies. The latter really soured moviegoers, considering it was teased
