Star Wars: The Last Jedi Script

Many Star Wars fans seem to be divided when it comes to their feelings on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The film is quite a departure from what many have come to expect from the saga that started all the way back in 1977, and that’s largely why so many fans either love it or hate it. But there’s one Star Wars tradition that was kept intact, despite many fans initially thinking it was axed as one of the many decisions director Rian Johnson made in in a movie that feels decidedly different from the chapters that came before it.

In every Star Wars movie, at least one character says “I have a bad feeling about this” or some variation on that line. However, upon first inspection, Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t appear to have this line anywhere in the movie. But let’s not forget that there are many characters in the Star Wars galaxy who don’t speak English. And it turns out the traditional line was given to one of them in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi script. Read More »

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.)

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

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.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Jimmy Kimmel Live

“This is not going to go the way you think.” – Luke Skywalker

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens, director J.J. Abrams sought to prop up and revitalize the most popular film franchise in movie history, to preserve its qualities in amber for a new generation. The Force Awakens was very concerned about what you, the moviegoer and fan, thinks about Star Wars. It wants to please you. It wants to be comfort food. And it’s very, very good at that.

But with Star Wars: The Last Jedi, director Rian Johnson wants to burn Star Wars to the ground. Not because he harbors ill will toward it, but because he loves it. He loves it so much that he wants to cleanse the garden and allow something fresh and new to grow. The Last Jedi is not concerned about what you, the moviegoer and fan, thinks about Star Wars. It wants to challenge you and make you question what Star Wars is and what it can be
