Ever since the title for Star Wars 8 was revealed, fans have been wildly speculating about whether or not Jedi had a plural meaning and what character or characters the title is referring to. With Star Wars Celebration going on right now in Orlando, quite a few details about the movie have been making their way online. Speaking with Good Morning America, Rian Johnson was asked about
Star Wars Celebration is happening from now through Sunday and, of all the things going on this weekend, the The Last Jedi panel is easily the most anticipated. Not only because we are going to get to see the cast and filmmakers talking about the movie, but we are finally going to get to see a trailer for the movie.
The unfortunate news was revealed during Star Wars Celebration at a panel highlighting Billy Dee Williams. During the course of the panel, which was titled Smooth Talkin' With Billy Dee Williams, the subject of whether or not he will be appearing in Star Wars: The Last Jedi came up. While the panel wasn't live streamed, many fans, like Luke Davis, took to Twitter in order to break the news to the rest of the world

In a note in the program for Alligator, the world-premiere play opening New Georges' 25th season, Hilary Bettis describes writing it in "a fever dream of alcohol, death, violence, and poverty." Alligator, the first of a planned series of collaborations by The Sol Project with off-Broadway companies to produce new plays by Latinx playwrights, carries the audience into a similar space, embracing chaos in order to map the "pain and destruction," as Bettis's note puts it, caused by the unplanned, unpredictable intersections of people's lives. Against the backdrop of the Florida Everglades in 1999, Alligator's characters struggle, compellingly if often unsuccessfully, within and against this chaos for self-realization and human connection.
At the heart of Alligator are Ty (Dakota Granados) and his twin sister
In other news, Woody Harrelson may already re-team with director Rob Reiner after their recently-shot Lbj with a “politically charged” Iraq war drama titled Shock and Awe, Deadline reports. James Marsden has also been added to the growing cast list. The drama will be penned by Joey Hartstone, who also wrote their last collaboration. The
The original series was Gene Roddenberry’s true vision of a future where humans have evolved to become more enlightened, working for the betterment of humanity. So when I started to watch, I just jumped in where I had previously left off during another binge. (Thanks, Netflix, for holding my spot!) I jumped on Season 2 episode Patterns of Force.
If you haven’t seen this episode, it is when Kirk and Spock go looking for a missing Federation researcher John Gill and discover a planet full of Nazis. The planets of the system have been in a conflict, with the Zeons being hunted just as the Jews were. Kirk is forced to take action to save lives because the Prime Directive (which prohibits interference with developing cultures) was already broken by Gill restarting Nazi Germany.
It is a profound episode, showcasing the horrors of the holocaust. Even so, in 1968 when this episode aired Jews were still banned from clubs and businesses in America, still denied jobs and opportunities just because of their faith. By using this horrific event, Roddenberry was able, along with prominent Jewish actors, to remind the public that Jews were people just like them. Did it work? On a large scale, probably not. However, if it stuck with only a few people, those people could have grown to help end the cycle of hate.
This is the power of science fiction. It uses entertainment to teach us about the mistakes of the past and shows us the potential of the future. I can only wonder how Roddenberry would have reacted to our recent events. Mass shootings on the rise, with more groups targeted for religious affiliation, the color of their skin, or their sexual/gender orientation. I want to believe that he would have looked to take a stand against this ongoing cycle of hate.
It’s true that Star Trek never had a regular cast member that was considered Lgbtq at the time, but there were storylines throughout different seasons invoking those themes. I hope that the writers of the new show can continue Roddenberry’s practice of social commentary and have a Lgbtq character be a part of the show’s cast. We need to use the horrific act of violence in Orlando to change the image and social understanding of how any human, regardless of their sexual/gender orientation, should be treated.
In the episode I watched, the missing researcher tells Kirk “Even historians fail to learn from history and repeat the same mistakes.” It is a quote to think about. We, as a culture, are failing to learn from history. The attack against Pulse, an Lgbtq nightclub, sadly proves that. Unlike the TV show, we have no heroes beaming down to save the day. We need to learn to save ourselves. As a world community, we need to declare that ending the cycle of hate is our top priority. Our Prime Directive. This attack on the Lgbt community isn’t the first attack but together, maybe we can make it the last.
If you are a member of the Lgbtq community, then you have my support. If you are an ally like me, then make sure you show your support. The world needs to know that this problem affects everyone, not just this small group of people. Together is the only way we can make the world a better place, and bring us one step closer to a utopian world of enlightenment.

The show centers on four suburban male carpooling friends whose interactions on their commute to and from work often set off the characters into interesting and comedic situations.
The Carpoolers are: Gracen, a mediator by profession, an insecurely uptight husband to a sensible real estate agent, and the father of an immature man child who has misdirected ambitions; Aubrey, an extremely stressed-out family man with a dispassionate wife and parade of children; Laird, an egotistical dentist who is recuperating from a fresh divorce; and Dougie,

Maximilian Erlenwein’s “Stereo,” which ran in Panorama Special and stars Juergen Vogel and Moritz Bleibtreu, was picked up by Korea’s Sejong. Vietnam’s A Company acquired Philipp Stoelzl’s box-office hit “The Physician,” which stars Ben Kingsley and Stellan Skarsgard.
The Lbgt boycott was staged because they didn't want to see the writer receiving any money for the sci-fi thriller, which stars Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley. However, it turns out he was never set to get any additional compensation anyway, because the original deal he signed more than 10 years ago didn't have a stipulation for any back end payments.
Other individuals close to the project stated that, while Orson Scott Card did have a producing credit, he had practically no creative input in the production. There was speculation that his deal included "escalators," which would have paid the author if

In the running for a spot in the ABCs of Death 2, this short film, M Is For Monkey is written and directed by Corey Nikolas. The film stars Derek Rombeiro as Mape and Tania “Mrs. Bunnies” Orlando as Sarah.
The film opens with Sarah dressed in a banana suit handing out fliers for a local business. She is spotted by Mape, who we soon discover is a serial killer. Mape loves bananas and wears a monkey mask when committing his crimes. Sarah becomes his next unfortunate victim—just one of a few already—and Mape has an interesting method of murder.
One thing that stands out is that there is no dialogue. None is necessary. M Is For Monkey conveys its story quite successfully with visuals alone. Rombeiro is convincing as Mape, the menacing figure obsessed with
