Carrie Fisher's Dog

During the press junket for Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in 2015, actress Carrie Fisher brought along her trusty canine pet and therapy dog Gary Fisher, and the little guy became something of an internet sensation. The French bulldog appeared on red carpets, did the talk show interview circuit, and stayed by Carrie’s side at all times, his constantly-lolled tongue providing joy to all who laid eyes upon him.

Gary found a new home with Fisher’s assistant after the actress and writer passed away late last year, but now we’ve learned that he’s being added to Star Wars canon – Carrie Fisher’s dog is portraying an alien character in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. See what he looks like in a photo below.

Get Out fan theories

It’s been obvious for years that comedian/actor/writer Jordan Peele was a talented guy. But I don’t think even Peele himself could have expected his debut feature film, Get Out, was going to become one of the best and most talked-about movies of 2017.

In a new video, Peele answers fan questions about the movie and responds to some Get Out fan theories, including one that wonders whether the entire movie is the delusion of Rod the TSA agent. (Spoiler alert: it’s not!)

man of steel aquaman

The world (or ocean) of the DC Extended Universe may be a lot smaller than we anticipated. The shared cinematic universe was born fairly recently, launched from Zack Snyder‘s 2013 Superman origin movie, Man of Steel. But it turns out Snyder was laying the ground for Justice League and beyond, with a secret (so secret you don’t even see it!) cameo from none other than Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman.

Jurassic Park Goonies Easter Egg

It’s been 24 years since Jurassic Park hit theaters, and while the movie has been examined in-depth over and over again plenty of times since then, it appears one possible Easter egg may have gone unnoticed until now.

In Jurassic Park, Seinfeld star Wayne Knight plays the sneaky, weasel of a Jurassic Park employee named Dennis Nedry who is being paid millions to steal dinosaur embryos so an unknown competitor could create their own dinosaurs. It turns out that in addition to concealing dinosaur embryos in a faux shaving cream can, he may also be the source of a Easter egg hiding in plain sight referencing the Steven Spielberg project The Goonies.

Find out about the Jurassic Park Goonies Easter egg below. Read More »
