Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Daisy Ridley as Rey

Star Wars: The Last Jedi immediately follows the events of The Force Awakens, with Rey looking to Luke Skywalker to train her in the ways of the Force, while the Resistance is in shambles as the First Order begins to make major power moves. However, there is still a lot we don’t know about the film. Luckily director Rian Johnson, along with stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis were at a recent press conference to talk as much about the film as they could without spoiling anything.

Geeks of Doom sat down with fellow journalists to talk to the cast and crew of the film, and discovered a few interesting things about the relationship between Kylo Ren and General Hux, moving on without Han Solo, and how the theme of “never meeting your hero” plays a role in the film. Check it out below.

Deadpool 2 Teaser: Ryan Reynolds As Bob Ross

Yes, Disney has bought 21st Century Fox. So most of their entertainment assets will belong to the mouse. That means that X-Men and Fantastic Four can now play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s sandbox. Whether or not they will remains to be seen.

But for those who were worried that Disney would tone down some of the more adult comic movies such as Deadpool, you can relax. Disney CEO Bob Iger says he intends to keep Deadpool as an R-rated movie. More on what he had to say about that and the future of rated-R Marvel movies below.

Woody Woodpecker

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has released a trailer for Woody Woodpecker, a live-action movie based on the cartoon character of the same name.

Most old favorite cartoon characters have been given or are getting some type of movie adaptation, and a Woody Woodpecker movie has been in the works for quite a while now. Back in 2011 Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio behind the Despicable Me movies, Minions, The Secret Life of Pets, Sing, the upcoming Grinch Who Stole Christmas movie, and more, was set to make a Woody movie. That ultimately didn’t work out, and it eventually became this live-action movie.

The Shape of Water

The SAG Awards honor and recognize the best the performances of the year, and are often seen as an early indicator of who will win the Academy Awards for Best Actor and Actress, and Best Supporting Actor and Actress. Basically, each guild has their own awards ceremony to honor those within the industry and guild. And now that awards season is in full swing we are about to get to see more and more names being nominated for their work.

Following yesterday’s Golden Globe nominees, comes the SAG nominations.

Check out the nominations below.

Deadpool

We’ve been hearing whispers that the mega-deal between The Walt Disney Company and 21st Century Fox could happen as soon as Thursday, and this morning it became official: Disney has purchased Fox for around $52.4 billion. Disney is also inheriting around $13.7 billion of debt, making the total cost of the deal about $66 billion. In the deal Disney is acquiring all entertainment properties and more, while the Fox Broadcasting news and sports assets will be spun off to shareholders under a new company.

On the entertainment side of things, this now means Disney owns and controls all of Fox’s brands and titles including the X-Men and Deadpool franchises, the Avatar movies, the original Star Wars trilogy, The Simpsons and other Fox shows as well as all of the FX Network series, and even Fox’s stake in Hulu, which now gives Disney controlling interest in the streaming service (making their own planned streaming service even more interesting).

You can find more details below.

Alex Garland's Annihilation

Based on the earlier looks at Annihilation, Ex Machina director Alex Garland‘s upcoming film promises to be very thought-provoking if not perplexing. For one thing, Paramount and producers are worried that the film may be too smart for the average audience. In fact, this has led to some conflicts that have occurred on set.

It’s not clear what the end result will be, at least not until the film is released, but a new trailer should provide some clarity about the film. Or at least it should try to. Check it out below.

15:17 To Paris trailer

Heroes often say that they were just doing their job or what they’ve been trained to do. But that should not take away from the fact that what they did is truly extraordinary. Because no matter what they did or how many lives they saved, they were at the right place at the right time. That has been true many times, and it has also served as an inspiration for films. Like when three U.S. soldiers aboard a train to Paris risked their lives to stop a terrorist from killing passengers.

Now their selfless act will be retold by Clint Eastwood in The 15:17 to Paris. Check out the first trailer for the film below.

Star Wars The Last Jedi starring Kelly Marie Tran and John Boyega

Star Wars films have made more than an impact in film and pop culture, they have also paved the way for major revolutions. These films have opened the doors for young girls to accept their roles as heroes, or in this case Jedi. They don’t have to play the role of the damsel in distress, now they can be fearless warriors fighting the good fight. And we will see more of that now that there are a lot more powerful female characters in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Whether it is Rey (Daisy Ridley) training to become a Jedi, General Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern) overseeing military strategies for the Resistance, or Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) infiltrating the First Order, young girls have a lot more characters to look up to.

Geeks of Doom was invited to sit down with their fellow journalists to talk about the incredible changes that have been happening in the past few years and how having more female characters have given their young female fans someone to cheer for and quite possibly be inspired by. Check out what they had to say below.
