Suppose you’re not the usual Star Wars fan.

It is nearing two years since Universal Parks and Resorts announced that it would be teaming up with Nintendo to build a theme park based on some of gaming’s best known characters and stories. First revealed in May 2015, it came at a time when the new consoles at the time weren’t doing too well in terms of sales and Amiibos were some of the best selling Nintendo products. Now, with the success of numerous Pokémon games throughout the year and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild eagerly anticipated, it seems like the perfect time to get people excited about visiting a real life Nintendo adventure.

Amongst the army of swirling rumours about the future shape of Disney’s Star Wars Universe, few have been more intriguing than the prospect of a spin-off trilogy focussing on the adventures of Obi-Wan Kenobi. The series, it was said, would take place between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. It would chronicle the journey of the young Jedi Knight as he picks through the wreckage of a collapsing Republic, eventually choosing his hermetic existence Tatooine. Disney never commented on the truth of these claims, although our slim hopes were encouraged by Ewan Macgregor’s apparent willingness to reprise his role. Today we got another hint about when we might next see Obi Wan, and it could be sooner than we thought.
Kevin Smith has been on a roll in the small screen. In addition to his talk shows, Comic Book Men and Geeking Out, he’s been guest directing episodes of The Flash and Supergirl. It looks like Smith caught the TV bug and wanted to continue by adapting a classic movie as a TV series. Fans of the 1980’s cult classic The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension recently got excited as the director revealed that he was working with MGM and Amazon on adapting a TV series based on the original film. It looks like that excitement was a little premature.
In the whole of the first three Jurassic Park movies, there was one man that the production of Jurassic World depended on to be their through line from the earlier films to the new entry in the franchise.

Bayona? Jurassic World 2‘s producer seems to think so! (more…)
Don’t call it the first part of a four-part crossover event. The “it” in the previous sentence refers to Supergirl’s fall finale, “Medusa.” Every TV and internet ad touted “Medusa” as the first part of a mega-crossover connecting Supergirl with The Flash (Tuesday), Arrow (Wednesday), and Legends of Tomorrow (Thursday), pitting the CW’s DC superheroes against an intergalactic, world-conquering alien menace/existential threat, the Dominators. Unfortunately, the Dominators don’t make an appearance in “Medusa.” They don’t even get a shout out from a single character. On the plus side, we do get seven or eight seconds of Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin) and comrade-in-superhero-arms, Cisco Ramon/Vibe (Carlos Valdes), dropping into Supergirl’s (Melissa Benoist) National City apartment via a space-time portal/wormhole moments before the credits roll and a “To Be Continued … on The Flash” title card.
