New ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Trailer Available Now

This holiday season will see another Star Wars film dominating the release schedule. Unlike last year’s Star Wars: Episode 7 – The Force Awakens, whose fan anticipation was the highest since Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace in 1999, Rogue One has already been plagued by script rewrites and unscheduled reshoots. This was in part owing to the lack of direct relevance to any of the original series characters, but also to fan polls that suggested disappointment with earlier plot lines. Nevertheless, production has pushed on and the second trailer for the new film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was just released this week. Rogue One is based on a story by John Knoll (Star Wars: Episode 6 – Return of the Jedi, Avatar) and Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli, After Earth), which was adapted to a script by Chris Weitz (About a Boy, The Golden Compass) and Tony Gilroy (The Bourne Ultimatum, House of Cards) about the Rebel Alliance’s plan to steal the plans to the Death Star, laying the grounds for the epic trilogy that follows with Star Wars: Episode 4 – A New Hope (1977). Director Gareth Edwards (In the Shadow of the Moon, Godzilla) helmed the project with actors Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything, The Amazing Spider-Man), Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt, Casino Royale), Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler, Jason Bourne), Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises, The Place Beyond the Pines), Alan Tudyk (I Robot, Dodgeball), and Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland, Lee Daniel’s The Butler). Oscar nominee James Earl Jones (Field of Dreams, The Lion King) is also returning to provide the voice of Darth Vader, whose presence in the film will likely hold the biggest intrigue for fans of the series. Check out the new trailer right here on MADE, and enjoy the weekend!

Stephen Hawking Biopic ‘The Theory Of Everything’ Is Now Playing In Theaters


The new biographical drama about the relationship between Stephen Hawking and his wife Jane, titled The Theory of Everything, can now be seen in limited release in a theater near you. Adapted by screenwriter Anthony McCarten from the novel Travelling to Infinity by Jane Hawking, the film is a dramatic depiction of the couple’s 30-year relationship, beginning in the early years and following along as they have children and as Hawking’s physical health deteriorates as the result of his battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. The film stars Eddie Redmayne (My Week With Marilyn, Les Miserables) and Felicity Jones (The Invisible Woman, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) as Stephen and Jane Hawking and is directed by James Marsh (The King, Shadow Dancer). According to Hawking the film is mostly on par with the reality of their lives, give or take a few minute details and the actual amiability of their relationship, but as I mentioned before you won’t be able to find it in every theater in the area. Here are a few theaters in the Chicago area that are showing the movie:

AMC River East 21 (322 E. Illinois Street)
Landmark Century Centre Cinema (2828 N. Clark Street)
Century 12 Evanston (1715 Maple Avenue)
