Future Star Wars Spin-Off Movies

Last week Star Wars fans heard the worrisome but unsurprising news that any future installments in the Star Wars Story spin-off banner from Lucasfilm were on hold. The news came in the wake of the less than satisfying box office performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story, which was meant to kick off an entire franchise of movies following young Han Solo. However, Lucasfilm released a statement saying that report was “premature” and “speculative,” and multiple Star Wars movies were still in development that hadn’t been officially announced. So what’s the deal here?

New details about future Star Wars spin-offs have emerged, and it sounds like the situation lies somewhere in between. A report indicates that Lucasfilm isn’t slowing down development of any future Star Wars movies, but “they are licking their wounds.” Let’s dive into what that means, including the status of previously reported future Star Wars spin-off movies focusing on Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett.

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Box Office

Jurassic World raked in a huge $208 million in the summer of 2015, landing one of the best opening weekends of all time (the only non-Disney distributed title in the top 10). That means Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom had a lot to live up to. But the sequel had a satisfying debut with the fourth biggest opening weekend of the year, and Universal’s second biggest debut ever, coming in behind only Jurassic World.

Get the full rundown of the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom box office below. Read More »

Spider-Man Far From Home

Any fan who closely follows the development and marketing of Marvel Studios movies knows that Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland has a real problem with spoilers. The actor is so notorious for letting information slip that Benedict Cumberbatch has even made a habit out of stopping him from giving the game away. Well, now Tom Holland has given up a new detail about the forthcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel.

Tom Holland is appearing at ACE Comic-Con in Seattle, Washington this weekend, and in an Instagram video he wanted to apologize to fans for not having any major details to reveal about his future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He merely confirmed that a Spider-Man sequel was in the works while acknowledging that he didn’t know how that was going to work since Peter Parker is dead and all. Then he showed off the fact that he had the script on his iPad, and the title of the movie was right there.

The Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is called Spider-Man: Far From Home, and we already know why. Read More »

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

This week we remember the 90’s Ska explosion, get it in our heads to knock over an arcade, spend our summer skating in the city, take a detour in Ukraine, and think about Elvis Presley’s impact beyond just his music. Read More »
