While they tell tales of Death Stars and daddy issues, the “Star Wars” movies are also stories about duality: how goodness and evil can coexist — on the same planet or inside the same person — and what happens when they collide on an intergalactic scale.

These themes are revisited once again in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” the eighth episode in the science-fiction saga that George Lucas started in 1977. “The Last Jedi,” which opens on Dec. 15, is the first to be written and directed by Rian Johnson (“Brick,” “Looper”). It follows the resounding success of “The Force Awakens,” directed by J. J. Abrams in 2015, about two young heroes, a scavenger named Rey (Daisy Ridley) and a renegade stormtrooper named Finn (John Boyega), caught up in the search for Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

The new film continues where “The Force Awakens” left off, as Rey and Luke are about to meet on the planet Ahch-To, and it promises a further exploration of their relationship to the sullen evildoer Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and his nefarious master, Snoke (Andy Serkis). It also features the final performance in the series from Carrie Fisher, who played Leia and who died last December.

At a running time of some two and a half hours, “The Last Jedi” continues the adventures of Finn and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and their adversaries Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson). Somehow it finds room for the new characters Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) and Vice Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern), and a wide-eyed alien species called porgs. [Source]

This past March, after shooting “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “Detroit” and “Pacific Rim: Uprising” almost back-to-back-to-back, John Boyega didn’t immediately jump onto the next studio tentpole that came his way or consider taking a vacation. Instead, he went back to his roots to recharge. He starred in a new incarnation of Georg Büchner ‘s “Woyzeck” in London’s West End to “just get warmed up again.”

“Theater is a great opportunity where you can mix day-to-day work with the training,” Boyega says. “You go back to learning about your voice, about pitch, about diction. You go back to the basics of what an actor is, and the basic training for me was just trying to get both at a time I was really busy.”

The 25-year-old actor had just five days off between Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars” installment and Kathryn Bigelow’s historical drama “Detroit,” which came out in August. At no point during our interview did Boyega ever roll his eyes, but when asked if it was hard to transition so quickly between such starkly different projects his answer seemed to convey a similar reaction.

“They are so distinct. It’s a no-brainer, really. Space. Detroit,” Boyega says with a slight smile. “Some actors make it sound more complicated than it really is, man. You have a set project with two different narratives. The costumes and creative team are different. They are also distinctly professional in their own rights, that makes it an easier transition for you.” [Source]

Six of the season’s top stars — also including John Boyega, Gary Oldman, Sam Rockwell and Willem Dafoe — sound off on everything from dealing with nerves (“I’ve worked with people who vomit every night”) to fending off aggressive suitors (“There are predators absolutely everywhere”).

Actors are used to pretending they’re other people. But what if they were able to switch lives, or at least jobs? “[I’d do] some brand of daily journalism, like a column,” says Tom Hanks, 61, who plays legendary newspaper editor Ben Bradlee in The Post. “Goings-on about town, that kind of thing. I’d like that.”

James Franco (The Disaster Artist), 39, also likes writing, which he has done in numerous forms. John Boyega (Detroit), 25, opts for architecture; Willem Dafoe (The Florida Project), 62, for being a cook or a farmer; Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour), 59, for continuing his offscreen passion: “My hobby is 19th century wet-plate photography. I could do that until the end of time.” But Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), 49, says he has no other options, except “pumping gas. I got no plan B. I don’t have any skills, man.” [Source]
