Episode IX story

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now playing in theaters everywhere, which means it’s time for us to pivot onto the next Star Wars chapter! The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams will be returning to helm Star Wars: Episode IX, and news recently broke revealing Abrams pitched the story for the next Star Wars film to Disney CEO Bob Iger today. This all but confirms that any development on the new Star Wars from Colin Trevorrow‘s time attached to the project is being tossed out to make way for whatever Abrams has up his sleeve.

Leaving Netflix January 2018

The time is running out on 2017, and also on several movies on Netflix. As a new month and new year arrive in a few weeks, Netflix will clean house, sweeping several films into the gutter like so much wasted New Year’s Eve confetti. So if you’ve been letting the following films sit around in your queue unwatched, now would be a good time to finally give them a watch. Because once January comes, these films are gone forever, never to return again! Unless they do.

Below, check out the list of the best TV shows and movies leaving Netflix in January 2018.

Bright clip

Bright! It’s definitely a real movie from the director of Suicide Squad and the writer of Victor Frankenstein! Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are mismatched cops in a world of magic. Smith is the tough, no-nonsense human cop, and Edgerton is his Orc partner. Can these two cops from opposite worlds learn to get along? Maybe this new Bright clip will answer that question.

John Boyega Star Wars spoiler

There’s an unspoken rule when TV personalities interview movie stars on live television: it’s bad form for a TV host to drop a spoiler into the middle of a conversation. But that’s exactly what happened when Star Wars: The Last Jedi star John Boyega appeared on This Morning and co-host Holly Willoughby blurted out a pretty significant surprise live on camera and caught the young actor totally off guard. Watch the John Boyega Star Wars spoiler reaction below. (And this should go without saying, but if you haven’t seen the movie yet, don’t keep reading this.)

Laura Dern on Star Wars

After a grueling day of over 12 hours of press for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Laura Dern nursed a cup of coffee and settled in for an extended chat with a very different crowd: the Film Society of Lincoln Center. The event took place at 8:00 P.M. on Thursday, December 14, meaning everyone in attendance had deliberately foregone taking in the first showing of the new Star Wars movie.

But there was still plenty of chatter surrounding her role as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, the flashy topper on not only a great year, but a great set of years. After a relatively quiet first decade of the 2000s, Dern has reestablished herself as a titan of both the small and silver screen. In 2017 alone, she won an Emmy for her fierce portrayal of Renata Klein in HBO’s Big Little Lies, reunited with her longtime collaborator David Lynch in Showtime’s Twin Peaks: The Returnand now features prominently in what will almost assuredly become the year’s top grossing film.

While the Film Society of Lincoln Center dedicated an entire day of programming to some of her early works (Joyce Chopra’s Smooth Talk, David Lynch’s Wild at Heart and Alexander Payne’s Citizen Ruth), her 90-minute talk focused exclusively on her work over the past few years. The wide-ranging discussion covered how she landed some of her recent roles, her experiences working with an eclectic set of directors and some of her thoughts on the industry at large.

star wars the last jedi tv spot spoilers

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is in theaters now, so you know what that means – it’s time to start thinking about Star Wars: Episode 9, due out in theaters on December 20, 2019!

I’m joking, of course. The Last Jedi is a full meal of a movie and one that should keep us talking for a long time to come. But we can’t forget that this is part two of a series and that Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams is returning to cap off the trilogy he started…and The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson has left him in a very interesting place.

So let’s talk about it. And, of course, major spoilers follow.

Star Wars The Last Jedi box office

The Force is definitely strong with Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Aside from being a creative success with wildly positive reviews, it’s also well on its way to becoming a box office juggernaut, pulling in $45 million domestically in Thursday night preview screenings. That’s still not quite at the level of 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which reinvigorated the franchise after a decade-long slumber, but analysts are predicting that The Last Jedi could earn as much as $100 million on its opening day alone.
