The season finale of Westworld is just a couple days away, and soon we’ll get to see how many of the ever-growing list of theories about the show actually turn out to be true. The most recent episode of Westworld already confirmed one major theory that has been kicking around since the season premiere, and the finale will likely confirm or debunk the popular but controversial theory that Jimmi Simpson‘s character William is actually a younger version of Ed Harris‘ character The Man in Black.
While we wait for the 90-minute season season finale to hit HBO on Sunday, series executive producer J.J. Abrams stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to tease what he calls a “crazy” conclusion to the first season, and he even brought a clip from the finale to hold us over.

As children of the 1990s get more and more nostalgic for the decade that is now over a decade old itself, we’re bound to see movies studios and TV networks going back to the well for more film and TV revivals. One such project is Space Jam 2, the sequel to the Warner Bros. Pictures live-action animated hybrid that had NBA superstar Michael Jordan team up with the Looney Tunes for an intergalactic basketball game.
Space Jam 2 has been rumored for years, but the rumors became more solid when director Justin Lin became attached to the project with NBA player and Trainwreck star LeBron James on board to lead the movie. Many are skeptical this will ever happen, so in the meantime, Foot Locker created a commercial that acts as a sort of mini-Space Jam 2, but with NBA player Blake Griffin stepping up to play the Monstars this time.

Even though Sam Worthington is the star of the highest grossing movie of all time, James Cameron’s Avatar, he’ll never quite be the box office draw as an actor like Will Smith. But it looks like he’ll try to follow closely in his footsteps on the dramatic side of things by starring in a movie that is basically his own Collateral Beauty.
The Shack, based on The New York Times bestselling novel of the same name, follows a father (Worthington) who falls into a deep depression after his daughter is abducted on a family vacation and found murdered in a remote cabin in Oregon. But one day, he receives a mysterious letter calling him back to the cabin, and what he finds may be exactly what he needs to get his life back on track.

Because some movies actually shoot on location instead of on a sound stage, fans have a chance to visit the real life settings of some of their favorite movies and TV shows. However, this can create some frustration with those in charge of maintaining said locations that are constantly visited by tourists. Case in point, the Tanner family home from the sitcom Full House.
The house of the Tanner family from ABC’s sitcom Full House actually exists in San Francisco. The interior isn’t anything like that of the actual house, but it’s the exterior with the red door that fans have been anxious to snap a photo of whenever they’re in The City by the Bay. Unfortunately for fans, the house hasn’t looked the way it does in the show for years now, and the owner of the house was not keen on the couple hundred people per day who would stop by the house for a picture. But now checking out the Full House home just got a little easier. Read More »
