Star Wars: Underworld Live-Action TV Show Finally Coming in 2018?
Right off the top, we need to make it very clear that this may not mean anything, but at the same time, this could also potentially be something for Star Wars fans to get excited about.

But, the series was ultimately shelved for budgetary reasons. Now, the IMDb page for the series has a premiere date listed as December 15, 2018. On the one hand,

Is Boba Fett the Next Star Wars Spin-Off After Han Solo?

  • MovieWeb
Many fans were disappointed to learn this past month that a Boba Fett teaser trailer had been completed and was ready to debut at the 2015 Star Wars Celebration. It was scrapped just before the big event, though, due to Fantastic Four director Josh Tank being fired. The movie, which was supposed to follow this month's Rogue One, was indefinitely shelved, and the teaser was locked in the Disney vaults. Well, it sounds like that first look footage might get dusted off in time for Star Wars Celebration 2017 if a new rumor is to be believed.

My Entertainment World is now listing Boba Fett: A Star Wars Story as being in production. Though, Disney nor Lucasfilm have officially confirmed this spin-off is happening. Yes, it definitely once was, but everything in terms of an official announcement from the studio is being put on hold. It's possible that Boba Fett has a cameo in Han Solo,

The Sexual Revolution Is Here in 'Masters of Sex' Season 3 Trailer

  • Moviefone
It's 1966 and the sexual revolution is heating up - thanks, in part, to the stunning sex study completed by Bill Masters and Virginia Johnson.

Season 3 of Showtime's "Masters of Sex" begins five years after last year's finale, with collaborators/lovers Bill (Michael Sheen) and Virginia (Lizzy Caplan) ready to take their published study on the road.

Still in the picture is Bill's wife, Libby (Caitlin Fitzgerald), though she seems to have undergone her own sexual awakening over the years. As the trailer shows, she was always curious about "what it felt like ... with you" - meaning Libby!

This season introduces a major new character played by former "Good Wife" star Josh Charles. Daniel Logan is a businessman looking to sell the "smell of sex" in a bottle, and his relationship to the couple - particularly Virginia - becomes complicated. We'll also meet Virginia's parents, as played by Frances Fisher and Michael O'Keefe.
