Closing any chapter in your life can be emotional, but that’s especially true when it’s the chapter that changed everything. And Game of Thrones did just that for Gwendoline Christie.

If you sat down to watch The Darkest Minds without knowing it was based on a book, that information would become abundantly clear about 10 minutes into the film. Almost every scene, especially early on, feels slightly detached from the last, as if some cohesive thread was cut to squeeze a 500-page book into a 100-minute movie -- which, if we're being honest, is almost certainly the case. The result is an interesting, beautiful-looking movie that gets increasingly frustrating as plot lines are left in the dust, relationships are forced together, and surprises are clearly telegraphed.
After Star Wars Rebels came to an end earlier this year, we knew the next chapter of Star Wars animation was close, and now we know exactly what it is. And it's extremely exciting. The new chapter in Lucasfilm's world is leaving behind the age of the Rebellion to tell a new saga set in the run-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Captain Phasma's exit in The Force Awakens is one of the movie's most questionable scenes. If you'll recall, Finn, Han Solo and Chewbacca dumped her into one of Starkiller Base's trash chutes, and then destroyed the planet.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is less than two months away, and while it may seem like we know almost nothing about it, that's not exactly true. There's not a ton of official information about the film, but over the past year, between the trailers (including the newest one), set reports, and rumours, we've been able to piece together a lot about Episode VIII -- and we've collected it all here for you. Potential spoilers ahead!
This year's Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel was pretty unique. In past years, the season is usually over by July so the panel mainly looks back. This year, though, with the current season just starting, there wasn't much the panel could talk about or show. So it became a pretty free-flowing, all-over-the-place conversation -- with a few noteworhy moments.
