Mace Windu May Get His Own Star Wars Spinoff, Get The Details

fb share tweet share

Mace WinduThe Star Wars universe is expanding at a pace that fans have never experienced before. We’ve got Star Wars Rebels on our TVs, Star Wars: The Force Awakens heading to theaters, Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII and possibly Episode IX, and a slew of standalone movies. While we know that Godzilla’s Gareth Edwards is directing one of these, and Fantastic Four’s Josh Trank is helming another, everything else we know about them is unofficial. There have been all kinds of rumors about characters getting their own movie, and now we have another one to add to the pile, Jedi Knight Mace Windu.

Yoda, Han Solo, Boba Fett, and even Obi-Wan Kenobi are all names that have all been tossed around, but Mace Windu is an interesting proposition. The character was originally in drafts of the first three movies, but was removed and George Lucas brought him back for the prequels. He also appears in The Clone Wars animated series. Between those and his substantial presence in the Expanded Universe, there’s a lot of potential background and stories to mine (though the EU is not officially canon anymore, it is still open to be used as fodder for the new installments).

HBO Just Picked Up Westworld, Here’s What We Know So Far

fb share tweet share

WestworldWhen you hear that a classic film or TV show is being reworked, your initial reaction is usually a groan, or at least a half-hearted, “Why?” We’re often in same boat, skepticism wise (we could get into the “Why can’t Hollywood just make a new movie” debate, but that’s been done to death and is just a fact of the world we live in), but one that we’re actually pretty jazzed about is the upcoming Westworld revamp, which just got picked up by HBO.

For all of the fantastic programs the premium cable channel has on its dockets, they’ve never really done much in the way of science fiction. And given their track record of late, what with shows like Game of Thrones and True Detective, this is an enticing proposition. Yesterday, the network released this photo, as well as a series of twitchy videos via Vine and Twitter.

Forget the popular series of “How It Should Have Ended” videos, this truly is how Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy should have ended. This outtake appears on the upcoming Blu-ray for the smash hit space opera, and given the sarcastic sense of humor of the whole endeavor, it’s damn near perfect. Just when you didn’t think it was possible to love the movie any more…

Will Peter Capaldi Be Back For Doctor Who Season 9?

CapaldiPeter Capaldi’s first season as The Doctor just wrapped up a little over a week ago, and we’re a month and a half out from his first full Christmas special. But we still didn’t actually know at this point whether he’d be returning for season nine. I mean, it certainly seemed like a given, but nobody had confirmed that he had signed on the line which is dotted. Thankfully now we know, and the word is good.

SPOILERS if you aren’t caught up with Doctor Who!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Yet Another Trailer Description That’s Totally Different

fb share tweet share

star warsHey, do you remember earlier today when we heard reports about the upcoming trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Someone heard a description of the action from their sources and relayed it and we relayed it to you. (You can read about it HERE if you want, or just wait until a bit later, as we’ll get back to it eventually.) Well, as it turns out, they’re not the only ones with sources, and they’re not the only ones whose sources are talking about the upcoming trailer. This latest report, however, is drastically different from the first.

Again, I don’t if you can spoil a trailer, but I’m sure there are people that sensitive out there, so here goes: THERE ARE POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR THE STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS TRAILER.

This Is Why The Walking Dead Returned To The Past

Spoilers for The Walking Dead episode “Consumed” and others below. You have been warned.

the walking deadFrom a structure standpoint, last night’s episode of The Walking Dead was possibly the best in the series. With nearly all of its runtime devoted to Carol, the narrative skips back and forth across her timeline and through several of the show’s more iconic locations. We get a sense of what Carol’s life was like before the zombies hit, as well as a sense of what Atlanta is like now. (It isn’t good.) And it turns out all of these callbacks aren’t just one-offs, but they’re actually a sign of…something…to come.
