There are few film franchises quite as beloved as Star Wars, as the galaxy far, far away continues to dominate popular culture. George Lucas’ colorful space opera has been entertaining moviegoers for decades, resulting in generations of hardcore fans. And while every frame is dissected and discussed by the fandom, there are still many lingering questions and fan theories. Luckily for us, one such question has recently be answered. Namely, how did Rey manage to best Kylo Ren in a lightsaber duel during The Force Awakens?
This reaction, blunt as it may be, sounds pretty in line with what some of the public has been saying about the star-studded clip reel, which includes other notable personalities like Kristen Wiig, Jamie Dornan and Armie Hammer. But while Joe Rogan hits hard and fast above, he did provide more details on why he feels that way in particular.
At first glance, any place at Walt Disney World being open seems strange, but when you think about it, golf is one leisure activity which lends itself to social distancing. It’s a game that can be played alone or in a group that usually doesn’t exceed four, and it requires a significant distance between each small group. It also gives you the ability to go outside and get some sun, which is something most of us could probably use at this point. I haven’t played golf in years, but right now, it sounds like an absolutely fantastic thing to do. Though I’m guessing the best part of golf, hanging out at the bar after it’s over, probably isn’t available, and at the very least it’s not recommended.
I’m not saying that Zack Snyder is overly focused on his DCEU contributions as of late, but the director’s last six posts on his Vero social media page are all about either Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, or his unreleased version of Justice League. And Snyder, after being “quiet” on the page recently, is back to sharing with some regularity. His latest? A shot of Silas Stone (Joe Morton) and Ryan Choi, aka Atom, working hard at S.T.A.R. Labs. Check it out:
The first signs of the coronavirus were seen in China and after several months of isolation and distancing, the massive nation seemed to have things under control. Over the past couple of weeks, life seemed to be slowly returning to normal, with several of the country’s movie theaters having already reopened. However, the decision has now been reversed and all movie theaters are once again closed, with no explanation.
Coronavirus has brought the entertainment industry to a screeching halt. Upcoming blockbusters were pushed back as theaters closed, and film sets have been shut down indefinitely. It’s still unclear how all of these delays will affect the next few years of releases, but Marvel fans will be happy to see that The Eternals is still moving forward. Namely, because the company handling the visual effects has their staff working from home, and therefore about to continue their efforts. Scanlin VFX made this announcement via social media, check it out below.
It’s a deeply emotional scene. The last lesson passed down from a teacher to a student. And Tilda Swinton ends up being the ideal choice to play an ethereal, knowledgeable being like The Ancient One on screen. There’s so much about her character that we still don’t know, and it’s kind of a blessing when we saw her resurface in Avengers: Endgame thanks to time travel. I also feel like she can contribute to the Doctor Strange sequel, because magic! But you knew, in this scene, that Strange would continue to learn from The Ancient One even long after she was gone, because her wisdom was that influential.
Between confirmed deleted scenes, and concept art there is a fair amount of Star Wars; The Rise of Skywalker that was once an idea, but didn’t end up in the final version of the film. This, along with other rumors, have led to many believing there’s a mysterious “J.J., Cut” of the film, a previous, significantly different, version, that is sitting in a vault somewhere never to see the light of day. While we know that some of these early ideas did survive simply the idea the phase, it’s far from clear how much was actually filmed.
Skurge’s Shake Weight Actually Belongs To Taika Waititi
As a director, Taika Waititi is often known for his sight gags. The comedy-friendly director likes to incorporate odd and humorous images into his films, and Thor: Ragnarok is certainly no exception. One such example is the scene where Skurge, played by Karl Urban, is seen holding a shake weight with menacing intensity. While one would think that this is simply any old shake weight, it is apparently the one owned by the director himself. At least, if you take him at his word. As he admitted in the commentary track, Waititi bought a shake weight while working on 2011’s ill-fated Green Lantern and kept it throughout the years, apparently. When it came time in incorporate the device into the movie, Waititi went into his own collection and included it in the movie. Of course, it’s possible Waititi is being tongue-in-cheek. It’d certainly be fitting. But we want to believe it is the truth. Plus, why wouldn’t it be?
As the Marvel star has detailed on her Instagram today, she has been social distancing in her home alongside her family since March 18 – two days after her controversial words. She said that at the time of her first post, her community had much looser directives, only asking people to not gather in groups of 250 people or more and to wash their hands frequently. Along with Evangeline Lilly, many of us have experienced a rapid shift in measures in the past week.
