Star Wars: The Last Jedi might have ended with Rey and Finn hugging it out after spending the entire movie apart, but I've remained afraid that something would drive them apart again. Luckily, we can all rest easy. John Boyega has confirmed that the rebellious duo are stuck like glue from here on out.

Pacific Rim is kind of a weird movie. People either are totally apathetic to it, or love it to death. The sequel, directed by Steven S DeKnight rather than Oscar winner Guillermo Del Toro, doesn't quite have the same cult factor to it – but if you're looking for some ridiculously over the top city-smashing, robot on monster action, this is the film for you.
Video: The two Pacific Rim Uprising trailers we've had so far have promised more of everything we loved from the first film. More giant robots, more giant monsters, that sort of thing. But they have been a bit scant on something else we want more of: Rinko Kikuchi's returning hero from the first film, Mako. This new trailer from Japan at least gives us a little bit of that.
Video: Our latest look at the next chapter in Pacific Rim's robot-vs-monster punchup is here, and it's promising to bring us plenty of new action with the film's next generation of Jaegers. But it also gives us some more intriguing hints as to just why the Kaiju have returned, stronger and deadlier than ever.
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.
Days removed from seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I still can't believe it's a real movie. I can't believe what writer-director Rian Johnson did: He took all of our preconceived notions of what a Star Wars movie is and evolved them. The movie is genuinely shocking at times - multiple times - but it also feels fully authentic to the Star Wars universe. And this is why The Last Jedi is so good, even if there are a few hiccups along the way.
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. It was an ignominious moment for Phasma, and one that Last Jedi director Rian Johnson nearly made much worse.
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!
We knew already that Charlie Hunnam wouldn't be returning for the sequel -- but the fate of his fellow star Rinko Kikuchi was left nebulous, even as we were introduced to the next generation of mecha pilots for the sequel, lead by John Boyega. But the film's new official synopsis reveals that Mako Mori is back in action.
Last year while the next Star Wars was filming at Pinewood Studios in London, the galaxy far, far away was visited by Princes Harry and William. Instantly, rumours cropped up that the visit was more than just a set tour -- and now, it seems John Boyega has confirmed that's the case... except we might not see the royal Star Wars moment after all.
Joe Cornish's Attack the Block isn't just one of the best sci-fi action movies of the last decade, but given... let's say recent events, maybe now would be a really fun time to re-watch a movie that's quickly become a breeding ground for the future major stars of scifi film and TV.
Over a week has passed since Star Wars Celebration but some of the super cool happenings are still coming to light. This story of a young Jyn Erso, for example, as well as this video of John Boyega sneaking up and surprising fans. Check it out.
