A wizard is never early, nor is he late. He reprises his most famous role precisely when he means to.
Before The Last Jedi confirmed or denied any of our post-TFA plot speculation (no spoilers here, though!), the internet positively drowned in fan theories, ideas about Snoke, Rey, Phasma, and every little thing in between (were those really the ashes of Kylo Ren's enemies, or were they just, like, incense or something?).
It's hard to make good TV about Silicon Valley and its predecessors. Especially a drama. Watching a bunch of nerds talk about coding and CPUs is appealing to a only a painfully small fraction of the population -- but someone definitely thought that same thing about advertising before Matthew Weiner trundled into AMC and pitched Mad Men. That show proved even the most boring subject matter could be riveting with the right approach.
A few weeks ago, Columbia Sportswear announced a high-end, limited edition line of jackets based on The Empire Strikes Back. They sold out instantly. But we got our hands on one and had a question: What would it look like if this jacket, and all Star Wars merchandise, was sold like it was high fashion?
It's always been years. Three years between Star Wars movies. Sixteen years between trilogies. Then it shrank - it took 10 years to get The Force Awakens after Revenge of the Sith, and since then Star Wars movies have been a mere year apart. But now, for the first - and probably last - time ever, we'll have two new Star Wars films in only six months.
Video: One of the main reasons that so many Star Wars fans are so insistent on shipping Finn and Poe Dameron is the very simple fact that John Boyega and Oscar Isaac are two very handsome men. But for every Finn/Poe shipper out there, there's someone who'd rather just voice their thirst for the actor straight up.
As a recovering teenage girl, I'm not one to besmirch (non-Twilight) movies made for young women. I saw She's All That in theatres, OK, I get it. Which is why when I saw the trailer for Every Day, a body-swapping drama, I was intrigued. However, there's one unexplained detail that leaves me kind of horrified.
We've already seen one bird-based hero of DC's new live action Teen Titans show. So why not two more?
Few people had a closer relationship with Carrie Fisher than her dog, Gary, who was a fixture alongside the actress on the red carpet, as well as onstage at events. Gary was in attendance with Fisher's former assistant Corby McCoin last night for an LA showing of the latest Star Wars film (in X-Wing pilot cosplay, no less), during which the dog's ears repeatedly perked up during the scenes featuring General Leia.
At this point, it shouldn't be at all surprising that The Simpsons managed to accurately predict a wild bit of IRL news that none of us ever saw coming, but yes: The Simpsons totally called Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox.
One of the biggest mysteries that Star Trek: Discovery left unanswered by the end of its midseason break -- other than, is everyone on this ship crazy or good now, I can't tell - is just what's happened with Voq, the mysterious Albino Klingon who could be a secret spy within the Federation. This poster either hints at that, or is just hilariously bad.
The Russo Brothers, directors of Captain America: Civil War as well as Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel, just purchased the rights to The Electric State, an illustrated novel by Simon Stålenhag. Andy Muschietti, director of It, is in talks to direct, and Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, writers of the Russo's Marvel movies, will adapt the screenplay.
Today's announcement of Disney and Fox's monumental deal raises a lot of questions. For example: What are the regulatory implications of dismantling one of Hollywood's biggest film studios? But another question has to do with one of Marvel's filthiest characters, Deadpool, who's since become a valuable Fox asset. Well, we can (probably) rest easy, as it looks like Disney plans on keeping Wade Wilson's potty mouth around.
