john boyega the last jedi

It’s been two years since Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and people still – still! – can’t seem to move past it. And I’m not just talking about fans of the franchise who lurk in the dark corners of the internet: John Boyega himself is still talking out here about it (although he’s being asked about it in interviews, so that’s different than if he were just firing off these quotes unprompted).

In a new profile, Boyega calls The Last Jedi “a bit iffy” and says he “didn’t necessarily agree with a lot of the choices in that”. Read More »

The Matrix 4 cast

The Matrix 4 cast continues to grow.

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s casting of Frozen and Mindhunter actor Jonathan Groff, a new report today says actor Toby Onwumere (pictured, left) has also joined the highly-anticipated sci-fi sequel. Onwumere was a part of the ensemble cast of the Wachowskis’ ambitious Netflix series Sense8, so this will mark a reunion between him and Lana Wachowski, who’s directing this project without her sister Lilly.

Kavalier and Clay and A Really Good Day

After years of failed attempts to reach the big screen, Michael Chabon‘s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay is finally getting its long-awaited adaptation – not as a movie, but as a television series on Showtime.

Chabon and Ayelet Waldman, the husband and wife pair of acclaimed authors and television producers, have signed a new production pact with CBS TV Studios, and the CBS-owned Showtime is developing both a Kavalier and Clay TV show as well as a series based on Waldman’s A Really Good Day, which will star Veep actress Anna Chlumsky.

Rey's bloodline

Despite J.J. Abrams‘ recent comments praising Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I still find myself wondering if he plans to tweak anything Johnson established in that film with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. But one thing he definitely will not be changing is the idea that you don’t have to come from a specific bloodline to be able to tap into the Force. Read Abrams’ recent comments below. Read More »

mcu multiverse

I remember walking out of the theater after a screening of The Avengers, shaking my head in awe at how Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and his team of collaborators managed to weave seemingly disparate worlds together into a coherent story. But that was back in the first phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the scope and ambition of Marvel movies have expanded exponentially since then.

So how will Feige and Co. continue to keep things fresh as they surpass 25 movies in the same universe? The answer, it seems, is to take the action beyond a single universe. Read Feige’s latest quote on the future of the MCU below.
