ENDGAME Doesn’t Mean Game Over..

As 2019 comes to a close and the mourning continues for the ones we lost in Avengers: ENDGAME, one question continued to linger and one of those answers came in the form of the first trailer for MARVEL Studios: Black Widow.

The announcement of Natasha Romanoff’s solo movie excited the MARVEL universe, then ENDGAME left the movie watching public wondering about this movie and which direction we would see this character take. Luckily, the studio didn’t travel the same road as 2005’s Elektra and we are traveling back to the world post Captain America: Civil War.
The trailer drives us quickly into Natasha’s return to the world that built her and her attempts to disappear from the radar, but a life of a Red Room spy isn’t that easy and we see her reconnect with some “family”, one of them being a nostalgic Red Gaurdian (played by “Stranger Things” David Harbour).

Black Widow clearly shows the spy thriller vibe that The Winter Soldier gave us in the early phases of the Infinity Saga, but in a completely different world and it’s the world of a character that deserved a solo adventure.

No Time To Die,But Time To Say Goodbye..

007

(Douglas Porter-Staff Writer)

Bond, James Bond is back. This time he is no longer 007 and has retired from Mi6 to live out his days with his true love Madeline played by Lea Seydoux. In an art imitating life situation Bond is thrust back into the dangers of Mi6, just like star Daniel Craig had been thrust back into the Bond universe. During the press junket for James Bond 24 know more specifically as Spectre, Craig had said that it was his final Bond. But, with the fans maintaining the stance of 1 more film with Craig, and a script that enticed Craig to return to the role, Columbia announced James Bond 25: No Time to Die with Craig returning for shaken Martinis one more time. Now don’t get the notion that he is now back for more; during an interview this week Craig has confirmed that this is definitively his final Bond.

After a small sizzle reel was released online, fans speculated a trailer would be released in November as it seems 6 months before release seems to be the standard timeline for a trailer. Columbia pushed the release of the first trailer to December 4, 2019.

Premiering in the morning tandemly with 5 character posters the trailer came in at 2 minutes 38 seconds. The trailer did not bury the lead, with the opening showing Bond being chased, fired at by henchman on motorcycles and finding out he had been betrayed by Madeline. Now in the world of deception and misdirection this could be a different scene just taken out of context, but with what the trailer furthered showed us, it is very obvious Bond will have to fight one more time in order to survive. This time he will not be 007, as that title has been given to a new Mi6 agent: Nomi, a no nonsense, paid her dues, Mi6 agent.

The most anticipated character to arrive with this movie is the new villain: Safin. Safin is being played by Academy award winner, and a much loved actor of our show, Rami Malek. With Rami’s sky rocket to fame after Bohemian Rhapsody, and his titular role as Elliot Alderson on Mr. Robot coming to an end fans were wondering what he would be doing next. Taking on the role of the facially scarred Safin, put Rami in a position to be one of the top Bond villains, behind Christoph Waltz and his portrayal of Bloefield, whom coincidently also makes a return in this film.

Also returning to the movie are: Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomi Harris as Moneypenny, and Ben Whishaw as Q, a character who Bond expresses his emotions for by claiming he missed Q. I don’t want to give much of the trailer away, as I feel it needs to be seen rather that read about, but there the Bond staples in this trailer, and a lovely homage to the infamous Bond opening credits. The only remaining staple to be announced by Columbia is what famous singer or band will take on the opening credits song whos past songs have been performed by the late Chris Cornell, Jack White and Alicia Keys, Adelle, and Sam Smith.

GB 2020 spoiler – 4 words blew up the Ethereal Plane: “We’ve shot our parts.”

(Douglas Porter-Staff Writer)

On Nov, 8th Dan Aykroyd was a guest on The Greg Hill radio show, with one statement he made going viral in the Ghostbusters fan community, Aykroyd confirmed that he and the other original cast members have not only been cast in the movie but were able to shoot their parts during principal production this spring. “We’ve shot our parts. Myself, Murray (Bill), Sigourney (Weaver), and Annie Potts, and it was really exciting working on this new idea, a new take on the story…” Aykroyd said.

Since the teaser trailer was surprised revealed earlier this year, casting rumors have been trickling in over the last few months. Some vague confirmations have bled through, but never an official announcement from Sony. Ernie Huson revealed in a Cameo video that he was shooting his part. Through other interviews both Annie Potts and Sigourney Weaver  mentioned that they were also part of the film. Claims of Bill being seen on the set of Calgary also spread, but nothing more was ever seen other than a pic of the 3 remaining Ghostbusters having dinner together.

So while this is still not an official statement from Sony, this is the closest we have gotten to an actual real notion the our beloved OG cast is back and will be in GB 2020.

Final Farewell to Fred Andrews

(Doug Porter – Staff Writer)

Riverdale Season 4 premiered on the CW on 10/9/2019 and was the standalone episode that was used to honor Luke Perry’s role as Archie’s father Fred Andrews. Luke Perry passed away on in March of a stroke. His death cause ripples in the Hollywood community with many people coming out and saying lovely things about Luke’s influence on their lives. As Luke was a multi-season cast member of Riverdale, people were wondering how the Riverdale writers would handle Luke’s abesence in future episodes.

luke-perry-riverdale-fred-andrews

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed in the final episodes of Season 3 that they would be postponing any mention of Fred’s disappearance as 1. he had already completed his scenes for season 3 and 2. they did not want to rush a monumental storyline to try and shoehorn it into the final episodes of the season. Instead they took the seasonal hiatus to really map out a great first episode to address Fred’s departure from the show. It was announced that while there were some open ended items from season 3 that would be addressed this season, episode 1 title “In Memoriam” would be a stand alone episode with little to no mention of season 3. This epsiode was meant to give Luke Perry his much deserved departure, honoring Luke.

Refraining from using potential spoilers, the death of Fred Andrews in the storyline was handled ver gracefully, and envokes alot of emotions as Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, Reggie, and Kevin handle the loss of a man they always viewed as a father in their lives. The emotional character arcs were also given for Archie’s mother, and FP Jones who was Fred’s lifelong friend. The town also honored Fred, with a very poignant showing of appreciation who at one point in the show was poised to become the Mayor of Riverdale.

 

The acting in this episode was far and above the normal acting you receive from this cast. It was very obvious that the production of this episode was made with time, compassion for the cast and crew, and very much thought out. While the actors did a phenomenal job showing their characters dealing with the emotion in a character centric way, it was very obvious in their eyes and the breaks in their voice at certain times that this episode was a monumentally emotional challenge to get through. Close friend of Luke, Shannon Doherty also made an apperance as a stranger who has a very pivotal role in this episode.

riverdale-season-4-cast-mourning-slice

There were many stories that came out about the kindness and gentle nature of Luke Perry. One story in particular has always resonated with me. KJ Apa and Luke Perry had become very close on set, a very father/son relationship. KJ being very young, away from home, and always busy as he is the main character of the show, Luke took it upon himself to help KJ feel like he had someone in his life to look out for him. KJ became very much a part of Luke’s family, and Luke would personally stay in contact with KJ’s family in Australia to keep them updated on their son. KJ has been very quiet about Luke’s death, issuing very few statements about the loss of his dear friend. Hollywood has taken that in stride, and has never pushed KJ to speak about a life altering situation in any interviews.

I will leave you all with this piece of advice: take the time to keep in touch with your loved ones. There will always be hectic chaos in your life. But those loved ones may not always be there in the end. It is important to express your love and appreciation for those around you, as there could come a day when they are taken from you. Something as simple as text message could do wonders with your loved ones.

A Fantabulous Trailer For Birds Of Prey..

Now that Mister J is away, Harley is ready to play and there will be some heavy collateral damage. As theaters prepare for the Joker’s solo screen outing, the clown prince’s better half has a new trailer of her own and she has brought some new friends along for the ride.

The ladies of Gotham have united and DC continues to think outside of the box. Margot Robbie is back as Harley Quinn, she is swinging a mallet and looking to move on from the dysfunctional fractured relationship that the world witnessed in 2016 “Suicide Squad”. As you can tell from the trailer, she is ready to make friends and the comic book masses can look forward to some of Gotham’s most dangerous women, such as Huntress and Black Canary. Also, “Birds Of Prey” has brought to life the villain known as Black Mask and Ewan McGregor will step into those tailored evil shoes.

“Birds Of Prey And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn” looks to continue a new path for the DC cinematic universe and hits theaters 02.07.2020

When the world is in Crisis, just bring everyone back, and we mean EVERYONE!

From April 1985 to March 1986 the DC Comics world was turned upside with the legendary comic-crossover event “Crisis on Infinite Earths”. In an effort to bring the DC Multiverse into one cohesive singular universe, Marv Wolfman conceptualized a first of its kind crossover that changed the very DNA of DC Comics until 2011 with the launch of “The New 52”. Wolfman’s goal was to make the DC universe more appealing to the mass consumer and set out to cut down the complicated mutiverse theory and remove alot of unneeded characters and worlds DC had created over its 47 year run. The pinnacle of this crossover was seeing multiple versions of some the famous DC characters interacting for the first and last time.

With the DCEU dominating the ratings for CW, the creative heads have decided to bring the popularity of DC’s biggest comic book event into their TV universe. CW announced in May that they had begun work on what is to be the biggest TV event of the year, if not the decade, with all 5 of their shows taking part in this momentous event. Airing in the final weeks of 2019 into the opening weeks of 2020 , each show will be a single part of the 5 part storyline:

– Supergirl – Sunday, December 8th (8/7c)
– Batwoman – Monday, December 9th (8/7c)
– The Flash – Tuesday, December 10th (8/7c)
– Arrow – Tuesday, January 14, 2020 (8/7c)
– Legends of Tomorrow – Tuesday, January 14, 2020 (9/8c)

Casting announcements have been steadily coming in since August with some very notable actors in the DCEU coming back to either reprise their “original” role, or taking on a new role in their characters hierarchy. Notables names returning are: Brandon Routh who will be playing a duel role of Kingdom Come: Superman and his Legend’s character The Atom.

Voice over legend Kevin Conroy will be playing his first live action iteration of Bruce Wayne, along with ’66 Batman alum Burt Ward in an unknown role. Erica Durance will be reprising her role as Smallville’s Lois Lane, and other notable Smallville alum Tom Welling will be reprising his role of Clark Kent. Is this the time we could finally see Tom Welling break the Smallville rule of: “NO TIGHTS! NO FLIGHTS!”?

All other main cast members within their respective shows will also be appearing, leading to what Arrow producer Marc Guggenheim has referred to as: “The Holy Grail of DC comic book stories, in my opinion,” also adding “We cannot screw this up.”

One More Shift For The Clerks..

cerksIII

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

Jay and Silent Bob are about to get rebooted, but Dante and Randal will soon be clocking in one last time. As “Jay And Silent Bob ReBoot” gets closer to its cinematic release, the man behind the dynamic duo unleashed some news about the on screen team that started it all…

View this post on Instagram

3 CLERKS! Thanks to the good folks at @zscentertainment and @leeloomultiprops, I got to see Randal! #JeffAnderson, @jaymewes, and I spent Saturday signing stuff and catching up, seeing so much movie merch that’s been made over the last 25 years (hit the Leloo site for sweet signed skateboards)! But even better than that? We talked about making a movie together. It’ll be a movie that concludes a saga. It’ll be a movie about how you’re never too old to completely change your life. It’ll be a movie about how a decades-spanning friendship finally confronts the future. It’ll be a movie that brings us back to the beginning – a return to the cradle of civilization in the great state of #newjersey. It’ll be a movie that stars Jeff and @briancohalloran, with me and Jay in supporting roles. And it’ll be a movie called CLERKS III! To be great is to go on. To go on is to go far. To go far is to return. And we’re all gonna return to the scene of the crime! This won’t be the old script we almost made a few years back: this is a completely new screenplay that I just started writing last night! And so far, it’s like a dream come true! After mending fences with @benaffleck earlier this year, I was hoping for a chance to do the same with Jeff – so huge thanks to Leeloo Multiprops for getting us all in the same room. But the biggest thanks ever go to Jeff, for being receptive to the idea at all. This means I’m gonna get to play with my two favorite inaction figures again: Dante & Randal! Two weeks from the debut of @jayandsilentbob Reboot (on @fathomevents screens 10/15 & 10/17, link in my bio), I’m ecstatic to announce our imminent return to Quick Stop! So I assure you: we’re open! #KevinSmith #clerks3 #jaymewes #jayandsilentbob #danteandrandal #quickstop #leeloomultiprops #indiefilm #clerks

A post shared by Kevin Smith (@thatkevinsmith) on

Clerks III is showing life and, more importantly, another friendship from the View Askewniverse has returned. The details of the initial rift between Kevin and Jeff has never really seen the light of day, but that is something between two friends and it’s great to see them reconnect, let alone seeing them return to that garden state of mind.

As of this post, the script is still in the early stages and no production date is in view, but the usual suspects seem to be ready to return to the Quick Stop.

Oh Captain, Our Fucking Captain

Sid Haig was the most intimidating interview I had ever had the pleasure of conducting, mind you that I am using intimidating in the most positive meaning of the word. During the early days of Nowhere California, we crossed paths with Sid at the 2013 Days of the Dead Convention and my anxiety stepped forward as I tried to figure out how to approach this larger than life presence.
As a fan, I knew I wanted to simply shake the man’s hand and thank him for his talents. As a rookie podcaster, I needed to figure out the best way to approach this icon and hope to pick his brain, even for a few moments. It would be easy to say that his role as Captain Spaulding was the nerves inducing factor, but that would be partially true, it was the over 6 decades of film work that would make some of the most seasoned journalist speechless and I’m standing there hoping that I would remember how my mouth works.

CLICK HERE For Nowhere California Presents Our Conversation With Sid Haig 11m26s

“Josh and I were very lucky to meet this man at one of our first cons, The Days of the Dead Con. He was very generous with his time, a true gentleman. He gave us a very funny and wonderful interview. Sid has left a beautiful body of work and another bright shining star appears in the heavens,” Philip Morgan, one of the original guys from Nowhere, commenting on the passing of Sid.
As you can hear from that conversation and Phil’s comments, Sid treated us like this was second nature for us and helped us feel like we belonged. That is a trait that could be considered rare in any aspect, let alone a convention, but Sid was definitely a rare individual.
Sid Haig’s first film credit is listed in 1960 and the most recent Rob Zombie’s “3 From Hell” could be one of his last completed film roles, it was his recent work with Rob Zombie that brought him into a new generation and let a new breed of film nerds dive into his past work, which could be looked at as a visual history/evolution of Hollywood.
Rob and Sid first worked together for the music video for “Feel So Numb” off of Zombie’s 2001 album “The Sinister Urge”, this lead to Rob casting Sid in the iconic role of Captain Spaulding in the “House of 1,000 Corpses” Captain Spaulding and the entire Firefly clan became a new generation’s horror icons, this spotlight led Sid into becoming a convention staple and gave fans the ability to hold court with the man behind the clown make-up.
“I remember running into Sid Haig at San Diego Comic Con as he was exiting the autograph upper level. I didn’t want to jam a camera in his face so I opted to simply say “I loved your work with Rob”. Sid simply said “Hey thanks man!” in that southern drawl of his. He turned and asked my name and we chat for bit as we caught an elevator down. His last words to me were “Did you wanna grab a pic or something before I split?” I thanked him and said the conversation was better than any photo. He shook my hand and I left genuinely impressed with how personable and human the fearsome Captain Spaulding turned out to be. Gonna miss ya Sid,” these are the words of Nicholas Dye. He wanted to share this memory of Sid and this is a memory that rang throughout the night and into this morning.
It was an understatement that the fans loved Sid and the lucky fans that would get a chance to talk to Sid knew he loved us back. The floors at most conventions could be a slow moving cattle call, but there are always must visit tables and Sid’s was one of those. Sid was ready for any fan and it seemed like money never was that important as he was ready to take pictures with anyone for free and has donated some of his money earned at conventions to charities.
“Whenever a legend in any capacity is taken from us, it’s hard to put the words together that express just how heartbroken we are. Sid was not only a Horror icon but a Hollywood icon in his own right. Sid saw a second resurgence in his career after “House of 1000 Corpses” and being thrust back into the spotlight showed people this man who’d been in the acting game longer than most of his fan base had been alive. Sid was a staple in the Horror convention circuit, and that is where I was first able to meet this wonderful man. The one aspect of Sid’s appearances that set him apart from others was he only charged for his autograph. If you wanted to come up and say hi, he was very welcoming. Wanted to take a picture with him using your own camera, absolutely free, so long as you didn’t make him stand up. Sid was always a great conversationalist and had the ability to enthrall all those around him with great stories. I remember my 3rd Days of the Dead convention I approached his table to discuss having him do a small interview for our convention coverage. “Don’t ask me for a fucking interview anymore,” was his response. I felt utterly defeated. I had finally annoyed the man himself and I will forever be on his bad side. “Just hit the damn button and we will do an interview, I like you guys so you don’t need to ask anymore,” he said in the same tone as someone who tells a college student they don’t need to ask to go to the restroom anymore. It was at that moment I knew we had become a memorable presence at the Horror convention scene, cause if Sid Haig liked us, then everyone else can fuck off! I will always have a spot in my heart for Sid, and I am happy he is finally at peace. I wish his family well, and if there is some kind of an afterlife, I know Sid is up there asking someone to go to lunch with him,” these are the words of Douglas Porter and his thoughts on this icon that we were lucky enough to cross paths with.

The 2016 Days of the Dead convention was the last time I crossed paths with the man, there was a signing event at Dark Delicacies for the Holliston Season 2 Blu-Ray, but the convention was our last conversation with the man and my last chance to pick the brain of a true Hollywood legend.
The conversation might have been brief, but I enjoyed every moment of it and I still was in awe by that moment in my podcasting life and the reality of Sid Haig liking us, let alone remembering us is still an absolute honor. In 2013, we stepped on that convention floor as nobodies and left feeling like we belonged. In 2016, we entered that convention as an actual force and still felt like fans that could hold court with the captain.
In Hollywood, the label of legend can be stuck to a lot of people and there are some names that do not deserve that honor, Sid sure as hell deserved that status. He has his DNA attached in almost 7 decades of filmmaking and the film nerds of the world should consider ourselves lucky to have that vault to look through.

Thank you Sid for sharing your talents with the world. Oh Captain, Our Fucking Captain.

 

D23, Star Wars, And You!

(Douglas Porter.Staff Writer)

This weekend, Anaheim CA was the host to the annual D23 Disney Expo. Sprawled across the Anaheim Convention Center D23 is the Comic Con of Disney Studios. The 3 day event covers many aspects of the ins and outs happening within Disney. It has also become a showcase for many of the Disney properties and has become the host of many award ceremonies that Disney uses to honor what they have termed as “Disney Legends”. Much like Hall H in San Diego, Disney uses a large part of the convention halls, to
premier upcoming Disney Films, TV shows, and Documentaries. The main focuses of this year’s D23 were the launch of the new Disney streaming service, Disney+. The service will be launching November 12 th and will be the home of the past and future Disney media. New and Past movies, and TV shows will be hosted on the service, and subscribers to the service will also be able to add-on packages, unlocking things like ESPN, and other Disney owned subsidiaries. The other focus of D23 was the ever growing universe that is Star Wars.

ap-disney-lucasfilm-16_9

Disney purchased the hibernating giant that is Lucasfilm from George Lucas on October 30 th , 2012 for the sum of $4.05 Billion dollars. Since the purchase Disney has begun to put Lucasfilm in hyperdrive.
They have created 4 movies (The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, Rogue One, Solo: A Star Wars story) with the 5 th movie, The Rise of Skywalker premiering December 20 th . They have produced 2 television shows
(Star Wars: Rebels, and Star Wars: Resistance), as well as countless web shorts. They retconned all current novels and comics to bring the “expanded universe” to a close, so that they could keep a linear story continuity in place to help control the new Disney narrative of Star Wars.

Disney begun their Star Wars announcements on Friday with Kathleen Kennedy (CEO, Lucasfilm) presenting the upcoming projects in a very Steve Job like format to the audience. The first announcement was for the 3 rd television series by Disney titled, The Mandalorian. The Mandalorian is a story set 5 years after the events of The Return of the Jedi. The story will follow the title character, simply dubbed “The Mandalorian”, played by veteran actor Pedro Pascal as a bounty hunter traversing the galaxy far from the reaches of the “New Republic”. This new show, written and produced by newly
awarded “Disney Legend” Jon Favearu will be more of a “a version of a show that took place after Return of the Jedi, after the revolution, after everybody’s done celebrating because the Empire is gone,” he said. “And then chaos reigns because there’s no central government in the galaxy and so it degrades into a world where, like the old Samurai movies and the old Westerns, where the gunfighters are roaming and people are fighting for their own safety.”

Rounding out the cast is former UFC fighter turned action movie starlet Gina Carano, veteran action movie actor Carl Weathers, actor/filmmaker Werner Herzohg, Breaking Bad villain Giancarlo Espisito, and New Zelander actor/filmmaker Taika Waititi who will be providing the voice of fellow bounty hunter, IG-11. Disney/Lucasfilm have been very selective of what they have shared in regards to the
show in the past, but they debuted a poster for Season 1 of the show:

d23-the-mandalorian-poster.jpg

They also premiered the first trailer for season 1:

Following on the tails of The Madalorian, Kennedy brought out actors Alan Tudyk and Diego Luna, 2 of the stars of the Star Wars standalone film Rogue One. Disney had previously announced a series following the adventures of Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), and K-2SO (Alan Tudyk) but details have always been very scarce. Sadly, details were not abundant on Friday, as the only pieces of information that were given is that its definitive place in the canon timeline is concurrent with the timeline of other post
Revenge of the Sith stories known as “The age of Rebellion”, and that the series will begin shooting in London next year. Alan Tuydk did offer up what he felt was a great title for the show: “Kay-Too Fast, Kay-Too Furious: A Cassian Andor Story.”

The biggest news to come out of Friday was the confirmation of a rumor that has been floating around the Star Wars community in one fashion or another since the completion of the prequel trilogy in 2005. News this week reinvigorated the rumors of an Obi-Wan Kenobi story, with such industry papers as The Hollywood Reporter, and Vanity Fair picking up the story as well. Kennedy doing her best to be settle, set up the audience to bring out one more actor, although by the amount of cheers that occurred before
she even mentioned the actors name, the audience was pretty clued into what was happening. That actor of course was young Obi-Wan Kenobi himself, Ewan McGregor. McGregor asked Kennedy to, infront of all the witnesses in the building, ask him if he is playing Obi-Wan Kenobi again. With resounding applause Kennedy asked this question to McGregor, who followed up with a simple yet Star Wars history defining, YES!

The story is now being touted as a Disney+ series, as compared to the long rumored movie trilogy, and there were no details given at the panel other than the confirmation of McGregor’s attachment and that the series which has its entire first season fully written will begin filming next year. The new current timeline was tweeted by Ryan Penagos, Vice President and Creative Executive of Marvel New Media.

This new timeline also confirms the official titles for each era of the series. Prequel stories, such as the trilogy films and the Clone Wars TV show, take place during the “Age of Republic” Stories between Solo: A Star Wars Story and Return of the Jedi take place at the “Age of Rebellion” Rounding out the end of the timeline everything from post Return of the Jedi which ends with The Rise of Skywalker exist within the “Age of Resistance”.

Disney also teased some episode 9 news with the release of the first “official” poster. There has been a teaser poster released previously but this is one is the first main poster to be made. This will be the poster that begins being placed in prominent locations in theatres nationwide.

rise-of-skywalker-poster-d23

Saturday was the big episode 9 day with the main panel stage being taken over for The Rise of Skywalker. Kathleen Kennedy, and J.J. Abrams were joined by cast members: Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, Keri Russell, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Naomi Ackie. However, much like the Cassian/K-2SO announcement, there was not much in the way of details shared beyond what we already now. J.J. told a very heartwarming story about Carrie Fisher,
which included him discussing her influence on him making the decision to return to helm The Rise of Skywalker. New cast member Keri Rusell the star of the J.J. Abrams tv show Felicity, shared some of her excitement of being part of the Star Wars saga. Hitting the point home with a nice quip about her son now finding her cool. The panel completed with a First-Look “sizzle” reel of footage from The Rise of Skywalker. Many news outlets broke the story of the footage, going into great detail of what was seen,
as Disney did a great job preventing this footage from leaking online. Disney, ever the media buzz generator did upload the footage to the official Star Wars YouTube channel early Monday morning.

The footage does a great job in furthering the point that this film will be the conclusion of the multi-generational story of the Skywalker saga. Disney announced earlier this year that The Rise of Skywalker will be the definitive conclusion to the 9 movie series, as they have no intention of further telling the Skywalker story. But instead intend to move the series outside the Skywalker saga and being to tell new stories occurring in all parts of the timeline. Disney did not include Star Wars media in their Sunday programming, but focused more on the theme park and upcoming hotel’s future. A trailer for the 2 nd
ride for Galaxy’s Edge, The Rise of the Resistance was shown and subsequently leaked online. At the time of writing this article, Disney has not released the trailer on any official source, and has not made movements to have the leaked footage removed from YouTube.

As the release date approaches, we here at Nowhere California will be sitting down once more to discuss all of what has been released prior to the premier of the movie, and give our opinions, theories, and emotional stories that are tied to the youth defining franchise. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premiers in theatres nationwide December 20th,2019 with early bird screenings beginning on December 19th,2019.

The Talented Life Of Anton Yelchin Remembered In New Film..

Anton Yelchin was born in 1989 and tragically taken from this world in 2016, but this talented individual’s impact is still being felt to this date. You can quickly look through Anton’s Imdb listings and realize he was wise beyond his year, as his talents are forever linked to some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Anton was a talent in every aspect of his life and his hobbies beyond acting were known by a random few, until now and that is in thanks to the new documentary “Love,Antosha”

“Love, Antosha” is the new documentary from director Garret Price and this is a rare portrait of a young talent that easily transcended the typical ideals of young Hollywood, by constantly raising his game in front of and behind the camera. This story is presented through movie clips and home movies, these images are punctuated by the people that worked and knew Anton recounting their friendships with a young talent gone way too soon.
This film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to glowing reviews and has been labeled as “heartbreaking” and a reminder of how one person can impact so many lives in an unfortunate short time.

“Love,Antosha” will be entering theaters on August 2.
