Spider-Man ride concept art

If you’ve ever thrust your wrist forward while pretending to shoot a web from it, Disney’s upcoming Spider-Man ride is going to try to give riders that sensation courtesy of some new technology. We’ve known for a long time that a new ride was in the works, but thanks to a recent panel at New York Comic Con, a couple of Imagineering executives revealed that it will give each guest the feeling of having Spider-Man’s web-shooters on their wrists as they try to wrangle some Spider-bots that have gotten out of control.  Read More »

Star Wars Triple Force Friday Locations

This week brings Star Wars Triple Force Friday to shelves across the world. But the debut of the first merchandise from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order isn’t getting quite as big of a launch as the previous iterations have seen.

Lucasfilm has announced the retail locations in the United States and Canada that will be hosting special Triple Force Friday launch events, including the customary midnight openings. However, there are significantly fewer locations participating this year, making this feel like it’s far less exciting of an event than it used to be.  Read More »

Clerks 2 - Jay and Silent Bob Weed Strains

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot isn’t getting a traditional theatrical release like its predecessor, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Instead, the comedy sequel from writer/director Kevin Smith will be released as a Fathom Event on both October 15 and October 17, 2019. If you can’t make it to the theater on either of those days, you might try your hand at attending one of the many Reboot Roadshow dates that will be hosted all over the United States. And since the movie is getting an unconventional release, it makes sense that the marketing leading up to the event is just as unique.

If you’re looking to get your hands on a nickel bag of weed before you take in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, you might be interested in picking it up from the duo that inspired Bluntman and Chronic themselves. Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes will be selling three new strains of weed inspired by Jay and Silent Bob at the Herbarium in Hollywood, California. And after you get your smoke on, you might want to take a deep dive into the making of Kevin Smith’s totally weird horror movie Tusk. Read More »
