Doctor Who spinoff Class premiere

Good news, Whovians: we now know exactly when Class will be in session. U.K. fans will be able to catch the Doctor Who spinoff starting October 22 on BBC Three. U.S. fans, unfortunately, will have to wait a bit longer, as Class won’t hit BBC America until spring 2017.

Whenever it reaches your country, though, you can count on the Doctor himself to help get the party started. Peter Capaldi is confirmed to appear in the Class series premiere, which is called “For Tonight We Might Die.” Patrick Ness (A Monster Calls) created the series and is executive producing with Doctor Who‘s Steven Moffat and Brian MinchinRead More »

Hitler In Transformers The Last Knight

Transformers: The Last Knight has already been confirmed to use King Arthur in some capacity, with Liam Garrigan playing the most famous medieval hero of all time. But it turns out the franchise’s foray into history doesn’t end there.

Thanks to some controversy stirring up across the pond while Transformers: The Last Knight shoots at Winston Churchill‘s former home of Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, we have word that Hitler and the Nazis will have some kind of role in the movie. Also, it turns out the prehistoric flares of the Transformers franchise that emerged with Dinobots in Transformers: Age of Extinction will have some little additions in this sequel as well.

This Is How ‘Moon’ and ‘Mute’ Are Connected

mute composer

Yesterday, we were pleased to report Duncan Jones will finally start shooting Mute next week. The director was hoping to make the Berlin-set sci-fi movie his directorial debut, but he spent years struggling to get it financed. During those years, though, he met Sam Rockwell, who read Mute when Jones was aiming to make it his first movie. The director wanted the actor to play the villain, but Rockwell was interested in another role. They couldn’t agree on which part he was right for, but that meeting ultimately led to Moon, which will be referenced in Mute.

When the director tweeted yesterday that the two films are related, some people were left wondering how, but for the past few years, Jones has been discussing a Mute and Moon connection, and a part of it is the Sam Rockwell. Below, learn more about that cameo and the potential Moon-iverse.

Dave Filoni Star Wars Rebels season 3 interview
The third season premiere of Star Wars Rebels will air over the weekend. As you probably know, fans went crazy when it was revealed that Grand Admiral Thrawn had been resurrected from Legends and has rejoined the Star Wars universe canon as the season’s big villain. The morning after the episode was screened at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016  I was lucky to get a chance to sit down with Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni and talk about the upcoming season.

We talk about a wide variety of topics, including where we are now in the Star Wars timeline, how Ezra has made so much progress since we last saw him, when we will finally get some X-Wings in the rebellion, his thoughts on The Force Awakens, if it’s possible to actually kill off a good guy or turn them to the dark side on a kid show, if Darth Vader or more Inquisitors will appear in Season 3 of Rebels, the idea of Force neutral characters, how Saw Gerrera ended up in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Wedge Antilles new canon backstory, if Rebels will end before A New Hope begins, the process of adapting Grand Admiral Thrawn back into canon, and much more. Some of these answers have been broken out into stories on the site already, but there is also a wealth of material never published before as well.

And don’t worry, the interview is season three spoiler free. Read our complete Dave Filoni Star Wars Rebels Season 3 interview, after the jump.
