Star Wars: The Last Jedi Vanity Fair Covers Revealed

For the franchise’s 40th Anniversary this week, Annie Leibovitz photographed the cast of Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm‘s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Vanity Fair has revealed four different covers.

The first cover features Daisy Ridley’s Rey and Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker on the planet Ahch-To. The second shows the three First Order heavies – Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson), and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). Driver tells the magazine that Kylo Ren’s wounds go much deeper than the fearsome new scar on his face. The third cover features Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Finn (John Boyega), BB-8, and Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran). And the last cover has the late Carrie Fisher as Leia.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper) and continues the storylines introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, welcoming back cast members Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis. New cast members will include Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.

The sequel is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski. Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in regular and IMAX theaters on December 15, 2017.

Entertainment Weekly’s First Look At Thor: Ragnorak

Sometimes even superheroes need makeovers. And let’s face it: Thor’s hair was always a little too Nelson-circa-1990. So in Thor: Ragnarok, out Nov. 3, audiences will see the Norse god get his signature blond locks shorn. “It was nice not to have to sit in the makeup chair for that hour each morning,” Chris Hemsworth says. “It felt like a rebirth for me as the actor but also as the character.”

Marvel’s third solo outing for Thor is a fresh start in more than just follicular ways. “I have a belief that if you’re lucky enough to get to part 3 of a franchise, it is your obligation not to fall to threequel-itis,” says Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. The latest entry finds Thor battling not only the Goddess of Death, Hela (Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett), but also his frenemy the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) when the pair find themselves on a desolate planet called Sakaar.

When Hela is accidentally unleashed from her prison, she is not psyched. “She’s been locked away for millennia getting more and more cross, and then, with a mistake, she gets unleashed and she ain’t getting back in that box,” says Blanchett, who worked with legendary stuntwoman Zoë Bell (Grindhouse) and learned the Brazilian martial art capoeira to prep for the role. Her attack on Thor sends him to Sakaar where he is forced to become a gladiator and realizes he’s no longer super special. “[Sakaar is] basically where every wormhole across the universe dumps out its trash, so you get people from all walks of life with all sorts of incredible abilities and powers,” Hemsworth explains. “No one cares what prince or king Thor may have been in another world. Also, his strength is pretty easily matched with those he finds himself amongst.” Case in point: Sakaar’s most successful (and popular) fighter is The Hulk.

Still, despite a title that references an end-of-days-type battle in Norse mythology, Ragnarok marks a decidedly more comedic installment for the series, thanks in large part to director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows). “Taika has such a quirky, left-of-field sense of humor, which forced all the characters and the tone of the whole story to head in a new direction,” says Hemsworth. “Each day we were like, ‘Are we pushing it too far? Are we allowed to have this much fun?’

Now the Ragnarok team just has to see if the Marvel audience is open to such a recalibration. “I think sometimes people mistake a tonal shift as ‘We’re just going to make some ridiculous broad comedy where no one gives a s— what happens and everyone gets stoned and sits around talking about saving the universe,’ ” Waititi says. “We want people to care what happens and care that the hero succeeds. I think tonally it’s like a slight shift. I don’t feel nervous — I feel good about it.”

This Week’s Entertainment Weekly Cover: Your First Look At Stranger Things 2

c4jyi0lxuaealq9-jpg-large

It was the series to watch. It was the topic to tweet. And it was the Halloween costume to wear. Netflix’s Stranger Things dominated the globe in 2016. “It’s really permeated the culture,” says David Harbour, who plays tortured town sheriff Hopper. “People love the characters so much, and they have such an emotional response.” A hodgepodge homage of ’80s classics like The Goonies, E.T., and It, Things, created by twin brothers Ross and Matt Duffer, won over fans with its tale of a small Indiana town rocked by the opening of an interdimensional portal and the arrival of a mysterious super-powered girl named Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).

Things garnered critical acclaim — including a SAG Award for Best Ensemble in a Drama Series — generated massive internet conversation (dispatched supporting character Barb landed her own hashtag, #JusticeForBarb), and launched its young, unknown cast into worldwide stardom. Says Brown, “I went to Manila last year; there were people camping outside the hotel, crying, and literally hyperventilating. I was like, ‘Why do you like me so much? I’m just boring old Millie.’ ” Quips Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, “I always joke around with the Duffers, ‘Why couldn’t you make the first season just okay?’ It’s like how they never expected Barb to be a hit — they never expected the show to be as successful.”

Now the Things cast and crew need to live up to all the hype when they return in October. “That is the new challenge of season 2: quieting the cultural noise that surrounds our show,” admits executive producer Shawn Levy (Arrival). Still, the Duffers are confident that they’ve crafted a worthy successor to the first season. “It’s a balance of the comfort you’re familiar with but then trying to take it in new directions,” says Ross Duffer. “That’s what we’re trying to strike with season 2.” They’re also working hard to keep the majority of these Stranger developments under wraps. Despite having security tighter than Hawkins National Laboratory, this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly has your exclusive first look at the top secret Stranger Things 2.

The 100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time

1

There’s never been a creative boom for TV like the one we are living through right now. Ever since The Sopranos changed the game at the turn of the century, we’ve been in a gold rush that gives no signs of slowing down. What better moment to look back and celebrate the greatest shows in the history of the art form?

So Rolling Stone Magazine undertook a major poll – actors, writers, producers, critics, showrunners. Legends like Carl Reiner and Garry Marshall, who sent us his ballot shortly before his death this summer. All shows from all eras were eligible; anybody could vote for whatever they felt passionate about, from the black-and-white rabbit-ears years to the binge-watching peak-TV era. The ratings didn’t matter – only quality. The voters have spoken – and, damn, did they have some fierce opinions. On this list you’ll find vintage classics and new favorites, ambitious psychodramas and stoner comedies, underrated cult gems ripe for rediscovery, cops and cartoons and vampire slayers. You’ll find the groundbreaking creations of yesteryear as well as today’s innovators. (There was nothing like Transparent or Orange Is the New Black or Game of Thrones a few years ago, but who could imagine this list without them?) The list is guaranteed to start plenty of loud arguments – but the beauty of TV is how it keeps giving us so much to argue about.

Entertainment Weekly’s Summer Movie Preview Issue Features 4 Captain America: Civil War Covers

1

Marvel Studios has spent eight years building a universe. Now it’s time to blow it up.

The heroes of Captain America: Civil War are doing what most burned-out, overworked professionals do when faced with unrelenting crisis: They’re turning on each other. This year’s Summer Movie Preview from Entertainment Weekly splashes the battle across four separate covers, with exclusive new photos and details showing how Marvel Studios pulled off its story of hero vs. hero.

“This is an argument and a struggle with your family, for your family, and against your family,” says Chris Evans, who has now played the super-soldier Steve Rogers in six Marvel films (counting a cameo in Thor: The Dark World.) Normal people may not settle their quarrels by hurling each other through walls, but the actor says the emotional deathmatch in Civil War is just an exaggerated version of an ultra-tense holiday dinner. “I think it’s much more relatable, much more akin to [disputes] we have in life,” Evans says. “Arguments with your family can be far worse than struggles with your enemy.”

The double sized issue will feature 4 covers as seen below and will be on newsstands this Friday.
