Laura Dern In Star Wars: The Last Jedi

As with every sequel, there must be new additions to keep the story moving forward. That is no different with Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which not only has new characters but also a new director in Rian Johnson. These new characters will aid or hinder each other in different ways whether it’s the First Order making a power move to annihilate the Resistance or some infighting within the Resistance. Either way, it makes for some great drama. And that is all led by Johnson.

Geeks of Doom, along with fellow members of the press, got to sit down with Johnson, Laura Dern, and Kelly Marie Tran, to hear what they had to say about being the new kids on the block. Check out what they had to say below.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The last two Star Wars films have set the December weekend opening box office number bar high. Both The Force Awakens and Rogue One had record-breaking numbers and exceeded all expectations.

Still, it should come as no surprise that Star Wars: The Last Jedi has high expectations. And when I say high, I mean high. According to the latest projections, the sequel is on track to earn $200 million in its opening weekend. More on the story below.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Vulptex

Those cute and cuddly porgs may be the thing that everyone is excited about, but they aren’t the only creatures we will be seeing in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There are also those mysterious crystal foxes, which have gone virtually unnamed since we first saw them in the second trailer.

But in EW’s week-long coverage of the highly anticipated Star Wars film, we are learning more about these foxes. They actually serve a purpose other than to look cool or hope that they are real and can be domesticated. Check out what their name is and how they will be the light to guide our heroes below.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’: Admiral Holdo Creates Friction Within The Resistance

Star Wars: The Last Jedi header

Earlier this week, we got to see a handful of new photos for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and we learned quite a few things about it. Among those things is that there will be some infighting within the Resistance. The events of The Force Awakens have left the faction broken and scattered across the cosmos, and it will be up to General Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern) to put the pieces back together.

However, those same images are teasing the idea that Leia could pass down her power of leadership to Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), the Resistance’s ace pilot, and it appears that he and Holdo have very different ways of bringing an end to the war between themselves and the First Order. Find out more about Holdo’s role in the film in the full story below.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Finn vs Captain Phasma

Recent Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailers have been vague on the details of the plot of Rian Johnson’s latest film. Though we got a sense that Rey (Daisy Ridley) was on her way to becoming a Jedi, despite Luke Skywalker’s (Mark Hamill) reluctance and general pessimistic outlook for the Jedi Order, Finn (John Boyega) and Poe (Oscar Issac) journeys were just beginning. Now with the release of the film less than a month away, we can expect to see more from Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the form of TV spots. Just don’t expect them to reveal anything too spoilery. Even the TV spots are keeping some of the characters in the dark, as the latest one has Finn asking Poe what happened to Rey.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Kylo Ren

We are less than a month away from the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and you can be sure that fans are on the edge of their seats waiting to see what will happen to Rey (Daisy Ridley) and if this will truly be the end for the Jedi Order. While the teaser, trailer, and a few TV spots have given us an exciting look at the action, they’ve kept fans in the dark when it comes to releasing major plot points and major surprises.

Of course, nearly every Star Wars film is one of the most anticipated films of the year, wanting to know more about it before its release is just par for the course. And now, we will get to know a little more about the upcoming sequel with a handful of new images that detail these characters’ journeys towards their destiny. Check out the gallery and a few tidbits about the film in the full story here below.

It’s not entirely unusual to see a TV spot for a tentpole film airing during a huge sporting event like game seven of the World Series. But when it comes down to a TV spot for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it will definitely be turning more than just a few heads.

What’s more, this is a TV spot that has a ton of new footage, more than we’ve seen in any of the previous trailers or behind-the-scenes looks that have been released. Check it out below.

Michael Keaton in The Founder

The Founder
Director: John Lee Hancock
Screenwriter: Robert D. Siegel
Cast: Michael Keaton, Nick Offerman, John Carroll Lynch, Linda Cardellini, Patrick Wilson, B.J. Novak, Laura Dern
Distributor: The Weinstein Company
Rated PG-13 | 115 Minutes
Release Date: January 20, 2017

McDonald’s is about as American as apple pie, and they serve apple pie, so it goes full circle. But like any good organization, there is a history behind it. So in John Lee Hancock‘s The Founder, this is the history of how Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton) turned himself from a small town milkshake salesman into the multi-million dollar owner of McDonald’s. But this is no ordinary story of a nobody turning himself into something than just a somebody, it is a story of how Kroc did it, which consisted of backdoor deals and underhanded tactics that ripped a beloved restaurant from two humble brothers. Check out my full review of the film below.
