We were all but certain that Darth Vader would make an appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but now, thanks to a new cover story from Entertainment Weekly, we finally have official confirmation from Lucasfilm.
On Tuesday morning, dozens of entertainment and film publications from around the web shared reports of their visits to the set of Justice League. Countless details and clarifications were uncovered, but we’ll do our best to weed out the chaff and cut straight to the most important things we learned from the set visits.
As June comes to a close, we’re officially approaching the halfway point in 2016. More importantly, this also means we’re halfway through another year of shows and movies rotating in and out of the Netflix content library. All in all, this first half was a success, packed with original content despite the fact that the Netflix library has shrunk by 40% over the past four years.
So what does Netflix have on offer for this coming month?
There’s about a year and a half of waiting left for Star Wars fans looking forward to Episode VIII. There’s not even a first trailer available for the upcoming movie, or a teaser for that first trailer. But until then we’ve got alleged script leaks to keep us entertained, and a new report seems to reveal who Rey is. More →
Last week’s Game of Thrones episode brought us one of the most ambitious battles in the series, a fight between bastards that reached epic proportions. Sure, there are some holes in the plot, but the resulting action is simply spectacular. HBO pulled out all the stops on this one to offer the viewer a glimpse of what it’s like to experience a medieval battle.
A behind-the-scenes video explaining how HBO creators and director imagined and shot the battle reveals that it’s not all computer-generated imagery. Sure, CGI was used for plenty of special effects including effects not seen before in the series, but many of the brilliant scenes in the ninth episode of season 6 were shot using actors, horses, and real props. Mind you, major spoilers are about to follow, so avoid the clip if you haven’t seen Sunday’s Battle of the Bastards episode yet.
In this new movie, we’ve got a house that offers shelter to humans with special powers, a mysterious professor type of character and a bunch of evil things happening all around. Add to that some of Tim Burton’s well-known darkness and creepiness, and you end up with a movie that seems to be Burton’s weird take on the X-Men. Only this isn’t an original creation from Burton, and it’s not an X-Men movie either.
If you haven’t seen last night’s episode of Game of Thrones, watch it right now! If you’re busy with something annoying like your job and you can’t watch it right now, be sure to stop reading this post because it’s packed full of spoilers. Season 6’s ninth episode is definitely one to remember. More →
Between the unbelievable finish to the NBA Finals and the budget-blowing ninth episode of Game of Thrones’ sixth season, it’s understandable that more people aren’t talking about the teaser trailer for HBO’s Westworld.
Like it or not, the season finale of Game of Thrones is almost here. We’re less than a week away from the conclusion of season 6, and we’re in for a very long episode intended to bring us answers to some of our most burning questions — but also to offer teasers of what’s to come in next year’s seventh season. The first trailer for episode 10 is already out, but you should avoid watching it if you haven’t seen episode 9 yet; there are some major spoilers lie ahead. More →

We didn’t have that many new trailers in our last week’s new movie trailers roundup, but that’s about to change. You’ll find below no less than 13 new trailers, including a few movies that you won’t want to miss when they hit cinemas this year. And don’t forget, Pixar’s Finding Dory is playing in a theater near you starting today.
Jimmy Fallon took the reins on The Tonight Show over two years ago, but every once in a while, Jay Leno will drop by to help out with the monologue.
With the election cycle in full swing, it’s honestly not that hard to believe that Fallon could use an occasional assist. After all, there are only so many Donald Trump jokes you can make before you run out of breath.
