When Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise first hit shelves a few months before the movies arrived in theaters, they were given a special day for fans to run out and buy anything they could get their hands on: Force Friday. However, when Star Wars Episode 9 merchandise hits shelves, it will be an even bigger deal.
Disney has just announced plans for Triple Force Friday on October 4, 2019. As has become customary for milestone chapters in the Star Wars saga, this serves as the launch of the first Star Wars Episode 9 merchandise. But it will also be accompanied by the first round of products inspired by The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars series coming to Disney + later this year, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a new video game.
And in a surprising turn, Triple Force Friday won’t be the only major merchandise launch for Disney. On that same day, an onslaught of Frozen 2 products will be available in stores for the first time with a global launch called Frozen Fan Fest. It fits in perfectly with Force Friday because the combined launch feels…forced. Read More »
Kevin Smith‘s breakthrough indie comedy Clerks takes place entirely at two locations. One is the Quick Stop Groceries, where Dante (Brian O’Halloran) works, even when he isn’t supposed to be there that day. The other is RST Video, the video rental store where Randall (Jeff Anderson) wastes his day away. But it sounds like one of those locations is getting replaced in Kevin Smith’s forthcoming comedy sequel, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Read More »
Back in the fall of 2017, Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson would be at the helm of an entirely new Star Wars trilogy. Since then, we haven’t heard anything about the project other than the first movie might arrive in 2020. That’s largely because he’s been busy bringing together an incredible cast for his murder mystery thriller Knives Out. But a new rumor recently emerged that gave another reason for the lack of updates on the trilogy.
Last night, in a story that has since been deleted, the pop culture news site Super Bro Movies reported a rumor that Rian Johnson was no longer working on his own Star Wars trilogy. It’s a rumor we’d admittedly heard circulating around Hollywood, but it was not something we could corroborate. The story spread like wildfire, but thankfully, it didn’t last long, because Rian Johnson doused the flames with a dose of truth. Read More »
We all assumed it was supposed to happen, and now we know for sure. Tom Cruise really was supposed to step aside as the Mission: Impossible lead after Ghost Protocol to make way for Jeremy Renner. That all changed, however, when Christopher McQuarrie was brought in to handle rewrites. Now, of course, it’s almost impossible to think of Mission: Impossible without Cruise. But such a reality came very close to happening.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The weekend box office numbers are in, and even though the animated sequel The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part took the top spot, it performed well below expectations.
The LEGO Movie 2 was expected to open with at least $50 million last weekend, but it only ended up with a haul of $34.4 million. That’s roughly half of what The LEGO Movie earned in its opening weekend back in 2014. Is this a case of franchise fatigue for the building brick property? Or did the marketing for the sequel just not appeal to audiences this time around? Read More »
