‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ International Titles Clear Up Some Confusion

When Lucasfilm initially revealed Star Wars: The Last Jedi as the full title for Episode VIII, rampant nerdy speculation ensued over what it might mean. Since “Jedi” could be either singular or plural, the title of Rian Johnson’s upcoming sequel implied a few possibilities — Luke could (obviously) be the last Jedi, or maybe it’s Rey, or maybe it’s both of them (and maybe others?). Thanks to the official international titles for the film, and a little assistance from social media, we now have an answer.

No, Arnold Schwarzenegger Probably Won’t Cameo in ‘The Predator’

Ever since the news broke that Shane Black was making The Predator, many of us wondered what exactly we were supposed to call it. It’s not a reboot, because it features new characters in a new environment, and it’s not exactly a sequel either, since none of the characters from the original seem to be returning. Some thought Arnold Schwarzenegger would cameo to tie this movie in with the rest, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.

‘Logan’ Director Cut Mutant Cameos Because They Were Too ‘Awkward’

Early on, you might’ve expected Hugh Jackman’s final bow as Wolverine to go out with a bang, like a giant farewell party where all his old and new friends are there to wave him off into the sunset. But that wouldn’t be quite fitting for a loner like Logan (and it sounds more like an X-Men movie), whose upcoming sequel really emphasizes the “solo” in solo outing — so don’t go in expecting to see a bunch of cameos from other mutants in the X-universe.

Original ‘Batman’ TV Show Star Burt Ward’s First Day of Shooting Sent Him to the ER

Nowadays, actors are often straight-up forbidden from doing their own stunts so that they don’t suffer from any lasting injuries. Some, like Tom Cruise, have the star-power needed to convince a director he wants to be strapped to the side of a jetliner while it takes off, but most of the time it’s the stunt-doubles doing all the work. Not so for Burt Ward, who played sidekick Robin in the original 1960’s Batman TV show. He recounts a time during production during which he had to perform a stunt so dangerous he was sent to the emergency room.

Mel Gibson Might Direct the ‘Suicide Squad’ Sequel

The DC Extended Universe may have lost Ben Affleck as a director (and maybe as a star too), but Warner Bros. is looking to gain another big name for its roster. The studio is currently courting Mel Gibson to helm the Suicide Squad sequel, which is definitely not a sentence anyone expected to write today.

‘Hurt Locker’ and ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Writer Mark Boal Prepping 2016 Election Script

As a lifelong journalist, Mark Boal has always been an accomplished chronicler of modern American war, but he only got famous for it when he took his act to the movies. Boal earned an Academy Award for writing The Hurt Locker and then scooped up a nomination a few years later when he re-teamed with Kathryn Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty. The partners-in-war-crime will reunite for a film set during the 1967 riots in Detroit, but you can’t keep Boal away from hot-button geopolitical issues for long. Today brings the news that for his next trick, Boal will tackle what’s shaping up to be one of the greatest crises in American history.
