We’re less than six months away from the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, with ongoing hints and theories about the next film in the saga making us more than a little excited.

Trailer for HBO's Doc 'Unmasking Jihadi John: Anatomy of a Terrorist'

"How can I get treated like this, you know?" HBO has unveiled the official trailer for a documentary titled Unmasking Jihadi John, in full with the subtitle: Anatomy of a Terrorist. The film is the latest directed by award-winning documentarian Anthony Wonke, who also made the behind-the-scenes doc film The Director and the Jedi about Rian Johnson making Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This time he focuses on a very different topic. From BAFTA-winning producer and investigative journalist Richard Kerbaj, Unmasking Jihadi John: Anatomy of a Terrorist examines what propelled British citizen Mohammed Emwazi's journey down a violent path despite Us and British authorities being aware of his extremism. It's a damning look at the making of a terrorist and what might've driven him to such extremes. This looks chilling and fascinating. Here's the official trailer for Anthony Wonke's doc Unmasking Jihadi John, from HBO's YouTube: Mohammed Emwazi, aka 'Jihadi John',

Jumanji 3 is on its way – Welcome (Back) to the Jungle

  • HeyUGuys
When any movie is a hit you can almost hear the studio execs clamouring for the next one in the series to be greenlit. Sometimes it’s a great idea and turns out even better than the first movie like The Godfather Part 2, at other times it doesn’t (looking at you Jaws II – not to mention the various other sharkfests that came in its wake).

So now we’re starting to get more information about the next in the Jumanji series, Jumanji: The Next Level, we’re waiting with huge anticipation to see if it can repeat the success of 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Crew Were Reportedly Asked To Stop Bashing The Last Jedi

It’s been nearly two years since Star Wars: The Last Jedi made its way into theaters, scoring strong reviews and going on to become the ninth-highest-grossing movie of all time. Yet, for a lot of people, it’s a bit of a black sheep, often breaking away from many of the familiar aspects of the franchise and taking some bold steps forward which rubbed fans the wrong way.

In fact, it’s not only the fans who weren’t on board with Rian Johnson’s divisive film, as it seems a lot of the crew members who worked on the project also felt unsure of the creative choices the director made. A new rumor over on 4chan – in other words, take this with a grain of salt – says that there was so much bashing of The Last Jedi on the set of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker that

Here’s What To Binge On Netflix Once You Finish Stranger Things Season 3

The third season of Stranger Things dropped on Netflix last Thursday, so odds are you’re already finished with it. Now that it’s over though, what’s there left to watch on the streaming service? Well, We Got This Covered has…got you covered.

Here are six shows worth binging once you return from the Upside Down:

The Oa

As far as premises go, The Oa is arguably the closest series on this list to matching the Wtf vibes of Stranger Things. Its plot follows Prairie Johnson, a young blind woman who returns from a seven-year disappearance with strange new abilities, including the capability to see again. Brit Marling, who portrays Prairie, also serves as the creator and executive producer, and Sound of My Voice director Zal Batmanglij helms every episode in its two seasons, giving The Oa a distinct, controlled feel.

Sense8 was unceremoniously cancelled after only two seasons,

Daisy Ridley Explains How Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Will Avoid The Last Jedi Backlash

It’s been nearly two years since Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuted in theaters to rave reviews, eventually becoming the ninth-highest-grossing film of all time. Yet, to certain fans, the movie is a bit of a black sheep, pointedly breaking away from many of the familiar aspects of the series and taking the saga in a bold new direction.

Now, actress Daisy Ridley says that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will continue that tradition of moving onward, while also tying into the deeper Star Wars legend. On her recent appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, she explained that Chris Terrio, who penned the upcoming entry’s script, is a huge fan of the franchise and definitely did his homework before he even wrote a single word:

“I think it’s really great, I really do. Chris Terrio had Star Wars bibles. He was doing his work. Everything

With less than six months to go until the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, we’re getting a lot of hints about some of the movie’s most closely guarded secrets. Some of the more substantial buzz in the last few weeks has been about Rey’s parents and connection to the history of the franchise.

Will Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker’s Final Battle Involve Force Ghosts?

The end of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi saw Darth Vader forsake the dark side and send his mentor, Emperor Palpatine hurtling down a shaft to his apparent death. But as with any good franchise, appearances can be deceiving, and death isn’t always the end.

Fans were certainly a little taken aback to hear the distinctive cackle of the erstwhile Sith Lord over the end of the trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Nevertheless, the prospect of the series’ ultimate villain returning for the final chapter in the Skywalker Saga is certainly a tantalizing one, but the hows and whys are currently up for debate.

After all, no one is quite sure how the Emperor is going to appear again. He was last seen on screen in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, promising to teach Anakin the secrets to immortality. So,

Daisy Ridley Explains How They Did The Throne Room Fight In Star Wars: The Last Jedi

It’s safe to say that so many fans were disappointed in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Despite its critical success, a lot of the Star Wars community felt that the Rian Johnson picture was jumbled and ruined a lot of what was brought to the table in The Force Awakens. But there was one scene that was universally praised for its vibrant colors, beautiful cinematography, and unexpectedly new depictions of violence.

Yes, we’re talking about the throne room scene, in which Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) join forces to take on Supreme Leader Snoke and his band of not-so-merry henchmen.

As we prepare for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker later this year, we can only wait and hope that we’ll be given another epic battle like that one. And during a recent interview with the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Daisy Ridley hinted that
