Cantina Talk: Finally, a Complete Guide to All of The Last Jedi‘s Easter Eggs

It’s hard to believe that it’s only been a few weeks since the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a movie that busted up the box office and has kept fans in heated debate ever since. Yet there's another Star Wars movie on the horizon (just months away!) and it's time it got everyone's full attention. Before that happens, though, there are a few bits of lingering Last Jedi business that need to be addressed. Read on. The Last Jedi Adds Some More Material (But Not Onscreen) The Source: An official announcement from Lucasfilm Probability of Accuracy: It’s totally legit. The Real Deal: So apparently, there was more to Star Wars: The Last Jedi than appeared onscreen—but fortunately for fans, it's not going to remain a secret. Writer/director Rian Johnson is working with novelist Jason Fry to create all-new scenes for the book’s forthcoming novelization, as well as rescuing deleted scenes from the cutting room floor, to firmly place them in the canon. Amongst the things audiences didn’t see in theaters but will read about: Han Solo’s funeral. Prepare your tissues for March 6; you'll get to read all about it then. A Complete Guide to All of The

Why 2018 Is Gonna Be The Weirdest Year For Superhero Films

As it has done, and as it will do until the end of time, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is gonna kill it in 2018. They’ve got Black Panther (YES!), Infinity War (a slightly more reserved YES), and Ant Man And The Wasp (a very curious YES? from the back of the room). But outside of the MCU’s “Please don’t blow this, guys” slate, 2018 is gonna be a bizarre year for superhero films. You know those people who openly complain about how you can’t watch one of these without having seen the previous six in the series? “How could I possibly keep up with all of this shit?” they cry into the night, stumbling through alleys and Facebook comment sections. Well, 2018 was carefully crafted to make such a person’s head physically explode, in a non-metaphorical way. “Wait, why doesn’t this Spider-Man movie have Spider-Man in it?” There’s An X-Men Horror Movie And … A Last Stand Reboot? Sort Of? The Disney / 21st Century Fox merger is happening, but we’ll still be getting non-MCU X-Men films for a while, which means we’ll be getting more and more chances to prove that really any movie genre can be improved if

An activist starts a GoFundMe campaign to help kids in Harlem see ‘Black Panther’

(CNN)On the list of 2018’s must-see movies, “Black Panther” reigns supreme. “I knew I wanted to do something for the children, especially of Harlem, because it was a community primarily of color,” Joseph, 29, told CNN. “I said to myself, how can I get as many children as possible to see this film and see themselves as a superhero or a king or queen?” “Representation and inclusion are legitimately essential pillars to creating dreams for yourself,” he added. Within 10 days, the campaign has tripled its original goal of $10,000. More than 700 people have donated including Chelsea Clinton, director J.J. Abrams and ESPN anchor Jemele Hill. The money will go toward purchasing tickets and refreshments for the children and chaperones. Anything left over will help support the Boys and Girls Club. “You don’t have to have a lot of money to make change,” said Dominique Jones, executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Harlem. “I really think that Fredrick is the real example of a superhero.” “Black Panther” has been one of Marvel Comics’ most vital characters for 50 years. The film adaptation stars Chadwick Boseman as T-Chala (a.k.a. Black Panther) as he returns to Wakanda (hence

Star Wars Surprise: Jedi Are Celibate!

Despite seven (going on eight) movies and myriad books, comics, and animated series, there are still a lot of unknown mysteries when it comes to the Jedi of the Star Wars universe. The Force-sensitive folks are so fascinatingly unknowable that people are constantly asking the internet for explanations for their many secrets. We here at WIRED spend a lot of time Googling for answers, but when we have access to an actual Jedi, we’re always going to go straight to the source for our answers. So when the opportunity presented itself to ask Mark Hamill (aka Luke Skywalker) some Jedi questions, we consulted the internet and brought the best to his attention. What did he say? Well, for one, Jedi are celibate. “I think so,” he said. “Otherwise I’d have a girlfriend by now.” Was he kidding? Perhaps. The rules around what Jedi are allowed to do in this regard have always been murky. Anakin and Padmé's relationship got them in trouble, but that was more because the future Darth Vader got attached to Queen Amidala of Naboo, not that they got down. Yet because Jedi are supposed to be focused on bringing balance to the Force, it's easy to

Alohomora! Harry Potter game hits your phone next year with Jam City

Niantic’s much-anticipated Harry Potter follow-up to Pokémon GO is coming next year, but Harry Potter fans who want their first taste of Hogwarts on mobile don’t have to wait, because Harry Potter is coming to the Los Angeles-based mobile gaming studio, Jam City. Through a partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Jam City has gotten a license to develop a new mobile game, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, that lets players create their own character and enroll in Hogwarts. The new game will not only let players enroll in Hogwarts, but they’ll get to train their characters in all of the magical classes and extracurricular activities the school has to offer. Want to become an Auror? Take Defence Against the Dark Arts. Worried about dueling skills? There’s a Dueling Club feature that will let gamers test their mettle against each other. And for fans of Slytherin’s favorite professor, potions classes are also on the curriculum. Jam City said that most of the iconic professors from the Harry Potter stories reprise their roles in the game — including Professor Dumbledore. The companies have been pretty quiet about the details of the game, which we hear will be set in a time that pre-dates

Stop comparing Barry Allen in ‘Justice League’ and ‘The Flash’ – the multiverse has room for both

When Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment made the somewhat controversial choice to keep their superhero movies and TV shows separate — ruling out any crossovers between their big and small screen projects — they were clearly differentiating themselves from Marvel’s interconnected “Cinematic Universe.”  (Never mind that, while ostensibly all taking place in the same continuity, the heroes from Marvel’s TV shows have yet to play any meaningful role, or even merit a namedrop, in Marvel’s movies — that’s a gripe for another day.)  Instead, DC views its properties as a “multiverse,” in which two versions of Superman can coexist peacefully because each story takes place in an alternate dimension: Tyler Hoechlin embodies the Man of Steel on The CW’s Supergirl, while Henry Cavill dons those iconic tights on a parallel earth — a narrative shortcut that comic book publishers have used for years to excuse the conflicting continuities and characterizations of their heroes across their various titles.  We all know the precocious Bruce Wayne played by David Mazouz on Fox’s Gotham definitely won’t grow up into the same Batman portrayed by Ben Affleck, which frees the writers on each project to take creative liberties with their characters without having to

In Justice League, the Men Are Finally the Eye Candy

Maybe if the staff of People saw Justice League before they chose their Sexiest Man Alive, we couldve been spared Blake Shelton. Justice League is surprisingly enjoyable, even though its a goddamn mess story-wise. But the best part of the film is the men that theyve gathered around Gal Gadots Wonder Woman. She once again proves a skilled warriorand the Amazons also show up to do their fighting thingbut the men in this movie are pretty much just there to look attractive. If thats all you need to convince you to see Justice League, then by all means, run to the nearest theater. First, theres Henry Cavill. Cavill has always looked like a snack (a smorgasbord even) in these films, but its even more gratuitous in this film. When Superman is brought back from the deadwhich duh, Cavill has been on the films entire press tour so killing him off in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was the dumbest idea Zack Snyder has cooked upits like a gift from the gods. Theres been talk of Cavills mustache being removed with CGI, but his chest hair is there in its full glory as Superman returns from the dead shirtlessfor no
