Pirates of the Caribbean 6

This past summer, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales came and went without much pomp and circumstance. The sequel only has 30% at Rotten Tomatoes, and while it has a 4.7 rating from critics (which is the more important number at the review aggregator website), that’s still not a warm reception. So will we be seeing any more Pirates of the Caribbean movies?

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is putting a positive spin on the box office for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which performed nearly $70 million under the last film at the domestic box office, and the fourth film was already $68 million behind the previous sequel. But despite his upbeat attitude about the sequel’s performance, it sounds like Walt Disney Pictures will have to wait to see how Dead Men Tell No Tales does on home video before they proceed with a new adventure.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Benicio del Toro Star Wars Character

Yesterday, Star Wars fans flocked to all sorts of retailers to get their hands on the first merchandise from Star Wars: The Last Jedi for the Force Friday II celebration across the world. We featured a whole list of the coolest toys you could get in stores yesterday, and one of those toys has revealed an interesting detail about a certain character who has been shrouded in secrecy.

Benicio del Toro has been said to play a character referred to as “DJ” by director Rian Johnson and the crew. However, Johnson has also indicated that “DJ” is not the character’s actual name. Thanks to a Funko POP Vinyl figure that was released on Force Friday II, we now know what those initials stand for. Find out what we learned about the Benicio del Toro Star Wars character below.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Trading Cards

It’s Force Friday II, meaning everything related to Star Wars is getting a huge push today as the first merchandise from Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits shelves. While director Rian Johnson has indicated that all the merchandise hitting shelves doesn’t contain any spoilers fans should be worried about, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some interesting details to be gleaned in other areas.

In honor of Force Friday II, the Star Wars Card Trader app from Topps released a new batch of Star Wars: The Last Jedi cards, and while most of them are simply cool images of characters, there is something of note that appears in one of them. More importantly, and perhaps slightly spoilery, another set of cards from the tangible Topps collectible Star Wars gives some vague indications of certain story elements from The Last Jedi.

New Ant-Man Suit

A few days ago, in honor of Jack Kirby’s birthday, a photo from the set of Ant-Man and the Wasp gave us our first look at Evangeline Lilly suited up as the latter of those two titular Marvel superheroes. At that point, we had yet to see Paul Rudd back in action as the superhero we last saw turn into Giant-Man in the middle of a big brawl in Captain America: Civil War before being arrested and placed in The Raft by the government. But that changes today.

Thanks to a video posted to the official Facebook page for The Avengers, we have our first look at the new Ant-Man suit that Paul Rudd will be wearing in a future film. However, because of the nature of the video itself, we’re not sure if the suit is one we’ll see in Ant-Man and the Wasp, The Avengers: Infinity War or The Avengers 4. In fact, it could be all three of those movies. Read More »

Star Wars LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon

Along with today’s slew of Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise revealed in honor of Force Friday II, there was another major announcement when it comes to to collectibles from a galaxy far, far away.

After teasing the arrival of some kind of huge Star Wars LEGO set, today the building brick company announced the forthcoming arrival of a new Millennium Falcon LEGO set as part of their Ultimate Collector’s Series line of huge, extremely detailed building sets. It’s officially the largest and most expensive LEGO set that has ever been produced, and you don’t even want to know how much it’s going to cost.

Porg merchandise

The Ewoks made their play for cutest creatures in the Star Wars galaxy in Return of the Jedi, but Star Wars: The Last Jedi will introduce a new species that gives the ferocious cub-like critters a run for their money. Porgs, the cuddly new penguin-esque creatures that are native to the island of Ahch-To, are the hot new shit in Star Wars-ville, and a cursory glance through social media shows that people are going nuts for these little things.

So here at /Film, we’ve taken on the Very Important Task of rounding up all of the porg-related merchandise that has emerged from Force Friday II, the day in which a ton of new Star Wars toys and products are unleashed upon the world. Wha–what’s that? Why, no, nothing else going on in the world right now could possibly be more crucial or relevant than this. I’m glad we agree on that!

Michael Rooker Falls Asleep in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Blooper

Director James Gunn has a special bond with his Guardians of the Galaxy co-star Michael Rooker. Even before the two worked together on Gunn’s directorial debut Slither in 2006, the filmmaker was a fan of the character actor’s work, and since then the two have sparked a bromance. That’s why James Gunn has no problem sharing an embarrassing outtake from the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 involving Michael Rooker

Believe it or not, the scene in question features Michael Rooker actually falling asleep in the middle of a take, so much that you can hear him snoring. But in order to talk about this scene, we have to put out a spoiler warning. So if you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, do not proceed any further. You’ve been warned! Read More »

Star Wars The Last Jedi - Executioner Stormtrooper

We’re about to get an onslaught of Star Wars: The Last Jedi goods thanks to the arrival of Force Friday II on September 1. The celebratory day will see the first merchandise from the Star Wars sequel hitting shelves, including action figures, LEGO sets, books, shirts, stickers and more. One of those toys hitting shelves on Friday has provided insight into one of the new characters we’ll see: a new kind of First Order Stormtrooper.

Throughout our constant updates regarding Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we’ve heard about a new First Order Stormtrooper referred to as The Executioner. We first heard about this Stormtrooper back in October, and since then we’ve actually seen them in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi sizzle reel (as seen in the image above). However, what we didn’t know was what this division of Stormtroopers was tasked with doing, especially with that lethal new clawed staff. But now we know more about the Executioner Stormtrooper, including their official name.

Get the details below, but beware of possible spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Read More »

Star Wars The Last Jedi Photos

Force Friday II is under two days and retailers will soon unleash a barrage of Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise for fans to examine while they bide their time until the next movie. We already know we’ll be getting a glimpse at a new character from Rian Johnson’s sequel, but before that, a couple new images from the movie have arrived online featuring Mark Hamill looking rather ominous as Luke Skywalker and Daisy Ridley as Rey, doing her best to train and prove to the Jedi Master she sought out that she’s got what it takes.
