Rumour: Star Wars: Episode IX opening scenes will have a focus on Luke Skywalker

A large section of the Star Wars fanbase was left disappointed by the handling of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but despite his demise in the divisive 2017 blockbuster, Mark Hamill is set to reprise his role as the Jedi Knight in December’s closing chapter of the Disney Sequel Trilogy, Star Wars: Episode IX.

While nothing is known of Luke’s return (presumably as a Force Ghost), a new rumour has surfaced which suggests that the character of Luke Skywalker is going to be extremely important to the plot of the movie, particularly in its opening scenes.

Now, you’ll certainly need to have a pinch of salt at the ready for this one given that the source is YouTuber Mike Zeroh, but apparently some “leaked” storyboard artwork has revealed details about the first act of the movie and included the following:

PGA Awards predictions: ‘The Americans’ will continue its winning streak with a Best Drama Series victory

PGA Awards predictions: ‘The Americans’ will continue its winning streak with a Best Drama Series victory
“The Americans” is having the best farewell tour since “Breaking Bad.” After winning two Emmys, a Golden Globe and three Critics’ Choice Awards for its sixth and final season, “The Americans” is the favorite to take home Best Drama Series at Saturday’s Producers Guild of America Awards, according to our combined odds.

With 16/5 odds, “The Americans” is ahead of defending champ “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “This Is Us,” “Better Call Saul” and “Ozark.” “Handmaid’s” is the only former winner in the category.

Just like at the Globes, this is the FX drama’s first nomination in the top category at PGA. Adored by critics but under-seen, “The Americans” had largely been overlooked by awards groups in its early years (unless your name is Margo Martdinale) before breaking through at the Emmys with nominations for Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys and a Best Drama Series bid in 2016.

Adam Driver knew where Kylo Ren’s Star Wars arc was going from the start

Adam Driver, who plays Kylo Ren in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, says that he has known his character’s arc from the beginning.

One of the accusations thrown Lucasfilm’s way in recent years is that the new sequel trilogy wasn’t planned out, with each director seemingly taking the story where he wants. Adam Driver’s latest comments refute this somewhat, however, as he has revealed that he knew where Kylo Ren’s arc was going right from the start.

Speaking to Deadline, the actor said: “With Star Wars, I had one piece of information of where it was all going, and that’s where it has been in my head for a long time, and things were building towards that. It feels very theatrical, if anything. Because in the plays that I’ve done, a six-month run, on the very last day, you finally feel like, ‘Oh,

‘The Americans’ is the 1st Golden Globe series champ without a matching acting win in 7 years

‘The Americans’ is the 1st Golden Globe series champ without a matching acting win in 7 years
The Americans”‘ farewell tour continued Sunday with its first Golden Globe win — and it was a big one, Best Drama Series. It did not win either of its acting categories, for Emmy champ Matthew Rhys or Keri Russell, making it the first show to take home a series Globe without a corresponding acting award since “Modern Family” in 2012.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association often likes to pair its series wins with an acting award. For the previous six years, all of its drama and comedy/musical series champs saw at least one of its actors triumph.

2018: “The Handmaid’s Tale” and Elisabeth Moss; “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and Rachel Brosnahan

2017: “The Crown” and Claire Foy; “Atlanta” and Donald Glover

2016: “Mr. Robot” and Christian Slater; “Mozart in the Jungle” and Gael Garcia Bernal

Golden Globes: 9 Things You Didn’t See on TV
The reason that the Golden Globes are often billed as Hollywood’s best party is that it’s really the only awards show that feels like a fun wedding with tons of celebrity guests. The 76th edition of the ceremony held on Sunday night included its share of left-field surprises — such as “Bohemian Rhapsody” winning best picture, drama, over “A Star is Born” — but inside the ballroom at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the trophies almost feel like an afterthought.

The actors in attendance drink, get up, mingle, and hang out at an outdoor smoking balcony just at the back of the room. The fact that there’s so much background noise on TV isn’t an accident. The guests, particularly those not seated by the stage, are too busy talking to each to other to actually watch the show. Here are the nine biggest secrets from inside the ballroom that

The 2019 Golden Globes took place in Beverly Hills last night and there was, as always, many highlights and surprises from the first big awards ceremony of the new year. Perhaps the biggest shock was Bohemian Rhapsody taking away the best film (drama) gong, beating the likes of the applauded If Beale Street Could Talk, BlackKklansman and Black Panther. The film’s lead actor Rami Malek was also awarded the best actor (drama) award for his near-flawless portrayal of the late Freddie Mercury, frontman for legendary rock outfit Queen.

Other big winners on the night included Netflix’s Roma, which deservedly took away best foreign language film and best director for Alfonso Cuarón. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse was awarded best animated feature film, while Green Book, the comedy-drama with Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen scored best film (comedy/ musical).
