luke in hiding in the last jedi

Mark Hamill has been in the “pleasing fans with his mere appearance” business for 40 years, but he’s only been in the “adhering to incredibly strict and sometimes insane levels of studio-enforced secrecy” business for about four years. So yeah, it looks like Luke Skywalker accidentally let slip when the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer will slip. Oops. Looks like someone is getting sent back into exile again…

Kingsman: The Golden Circle TV Spots

Blockbuster summer may be over, but there’s still a big dose of action coming this month in the form of the comic book sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

The LEGO Movie Sequel

The LEGO Movie was an incredible and imaginative movie, and a big part of that came from the surprising journey from the animated world of the building blocks to the real world that was the source of the LEGO city known as Bricksburg. But as we saw at the end of The LEGO Movie, that city is about to get shaken up by the arrival of characters from the planet Duplo.

As anyone who ever had toys as a kid knows, Duplo is the LEGO line of toys made explicitly for younger kids. The sets are more elementary and the pieces are too big for little ones to choke on. Those toys arrived at the end of The LEGO Movie when The Man Upstairs (Will Ferrell) allowed his son to play with his highly sophisticated inter-locking brick system, followed immediately by suggesting that his little sister could get in on the fun as well.

Thankfully, that ending wasn’t just a gag played for laughs. Instead, that will be a key part of how The LEGO Movie Sequel continues the story of Bricksburg and its residents.  Read More »

26 New ‘Star Wars’ Stories Have Been Revealed

Star Wars

In April, it was announced that a new book would be released called Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View, combining 40 stories written from dozens of writers (including Rogue One screenwriter Gary Whitta, famed comic book writer Paul DiniThrilling Adventure Hour creators Ben Acker & Ben Blacker) to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Star Wars franchise.

Each story is told from the perspective of background characters from A New Hope  – “from X-wing pilots who helped Luke destroy the Death Star to the stormtroopers who never quite could find the droids they were looking for.” And with the October release date quickly approaching, Del Rey Publishing has begun unveiling some of the short stories that will be featured in this collection. Below, check out a first look at more than a dozen new Star Wars stories.
