It’s a great scene, Mark.

Mark Hamill can’t watch emotional final scene with Carrie Fisher

Mark Hamill can’t watch his final Star Wars: The Last Jedi scene with his longtime movie sister Carrie Fisher – because it really was the last time they saw each other.

Hamill’s character Luke Skywalker is reunited with his sister, Princess Leia Organa, for a touching scene towards the end of the sequel, which was filmed shortly before Carrie’s death at the end of 2016.

And when the film came out a year later, suddenly the siblings’ fond farewell on the big screen took on an emotional new meaning.

Hamill admits he still has no idea why he kissed Fisher on the forehead in the scene – as it wasn’t in the script.

“I didn’t decide it and say, ‘Can I do this…?’” he explains to Entertainment Tonight. “I don’t know if we rehearsed it or not, but it just happened. I was standing up and they weren’t ready for it. They said, ‘No, do that again’. And we did it for a second take, and like I said, it was just spontaneous.”

That scene has now become “really momentous” for him as he was literally kissing Carrie goodbye – as well as his character’s sister.

“I can’t watch that scene,” he adds. “It’s just, you know, takes me out of the movie completely. I’ll get over it, but she’ll be forever missed and she’s irreplaceable.”

Fisher died in December, 2016 after suffering a massive heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles.


Does this mean Cap dies? Or someone else does?!? Can’t wait to see the films and find out for myself!!

Chris Evans Says He’s Done With Marvel After ‘Avengers 4’

Marvel Studios has been incredibly open about the upcoming two ‘Avengers’ films marking the end of an era. While they’re definitely not closing up shop and stopping production of Marvel Cinematic Universe films after the untitled ‘Avengers 4’ hits theaters in 2019, they have been clear that the landscape of the MCU will be different than what fans have seen so far. One of those big changes has been the assumed departure of actor Chris Evans, aka Captain America.

In a new interview with the New York Times, Evans pretty much guarantees that’s the case. “You want to get off the train before they push you off,” he said. The report makes it brutally clear that he is speaking about the MCU, and his role in it, in particular. The article says Evans “expects that planned reshoots in the fall will mark the end of his tenure in the familiar red, white and blue super suit.”

Can’t get much more definitive than that.

As mentioned above, this is something that fans have been expecting, but secretly hoping wasn’t true. Captain America has risen from a silly WWII-era character with a stupid costume to become the heart and soul of the MCU. This is, without a doubt, because of Evans’ performance as Steve Rogers. While Tony Stark gets all the funny lines, and the flashy suit of armor, Captain America, as played by Evans, is the perfect mix of “aw shucks” and badassness. He’s always been the real hero of the Marvel Universe.

Now, the real question is who takes over for Evans as the heart of the MCU? If Marvel Studios follows the comics, both Falcon, played by Anthony Mackie, and The Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan, have picked up the shield and become Captain America. But perhaps that’s not Marvel’s plan at all.

With the emergence of “Black Panther” as a phenomenon, maybe the King from Wakanda will take the reins of the superhero universe. And with Brie Larson in “Captain Marvel” coming in 2019, maybe we don’t need a Captain America anymore. Maybe a Captain Marvel will do just fine.

For Evans, now the only issue is how everyone he meets will think of him as Captain America. For better or worse, this is the role that will no doubt shape his career. But apparently, he’s not worried about being mobbed on the streets for the rest of his life.

“People don’t recognize me at all,” he said. “I can look them right in the eye — it’s like I’m invisible.”


Here’s a movie I hope never happens. Let’s just leave the series alone.

Steven Spielberg Reveals ‘Indiana Jones 5’ Production Start Date

Steven Spielberg has teased the production start date for “Indiana Jones 5,” saying that he will start filming the next adventure next spring.

According to multiple media reports, the director confirmed at the Rakuten TV Empire Awards on Sunday night that he will begin production next April in the United Kingdom.

“It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK,” Spielberg said during his acceptance speech, according to “The actors, and the crew, the chippies, the sparks, the drivers — everybody who has helped me make my movies here, and will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back in April 2019 to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie right here.”

Previously dated for July 19, 2019, the film was pushed to open on July 10, 2020. Spielberg is set to return to direct and executive produce star Harrison Ford. The “Star Wars” actor will be 76 when the movie starts shooting, and 77 when it opens. The project was announced in 2016.

Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will return to produce. The films have grossed roughly $2 billion at the global box office.

For now, Spielberg will next release “Ready Player One” on March 30. He most recently directed “The Post,” which was nominated for two Oscars and won the AFI Award for Movie of the Year.


Sounds like the show is in a pickle, Rick!! :D

According To Creator Dan Harmon, The Future Of Rick And Morty Is In Jeopardy

For those of you Rick and Morty fans who have been wondering what is going on with Season 4 and the future of the season, Dan Harmon has offered an update and it’s not good. After a disgruntled fan complained to Harmon for not working on the new season of Rick and Morty, Harmon confirmed that Adult Swim hasn’t officially picked up another season of the show yet. Here’s what the fan tweeted to Harmon:

“Quit wasting time and go finish the next R&M season, you lazy alcoholic. Run the Jewels can get the animators to make a music video, but we’re waiting on them for the next season? Nah, we’re waiting on you to finish writing it, like that fuckin book.”

Then Harmon replied with the following:

I hear ya, tough spot. On one hand, it can be challenging, especially with crippling lazy alcoholism, to write a show that hasn’t been ordered by a network. On the other hand, the thought that fans like you pay the price…I mean…I’m gonna grab a drink

It’s strange and a shame that Adult Swim is dragging their feet on this. Rick and Morty is a wildly popular show! How have they not greet lit a Season 4 yet!? I don’t have an answer for you. I’m just as confused as the rest of the fans.

The first three seasons have been so freakin’ funny and entertaining. I hope someone eventually pulls their head out of their ass to push Season 4 forward, but even if that happens, since no work has been done on it, it’s gonna be a long ass time before we see any new Rick and Morty episodes.

In the end, I’d rather wait for new episode than not have any new episodes at all.


After my untimely demise you can use my likeness in ads for Swiss Chalet, Pibb, Twizzlers, Dr. Pepper and just about anything. If someone asks, why not!!

Stars are rewriting their wills to include CGI do’s and don’ts

Hollywood stars can now be digitally recreated so convincingly, that actors are reportedly specifying in their wills what they’ll permit their images to do — long after their death.

“We can recreate dead actors,” Mike McGee, co-founder of the special effects company Framestore, told The Daily Telegraph.

“Actors alive now are already selling their image rights for films which will be made when they’re dead,” McGee says. “In their will, they have decided what constraints they want.”

Framestore recently set up a commercial for a chocolate bar using a digital recreation of Audrey Hepburn, after her sons approved it.

But some actors don’t want to leave their post-mortem script decisions to chance or their families.

The technology is advancing at breakneck speed, McGee says. New developments might pair digital representations of dead actors with artificial intelligence, he says.

“If you add it all together, they [dead people] can begin to have new consciousness,” he says. “It’s only a small step to interactive conversations with holographic versions of dead celebrities or historical figures.”


Rest in peace, Mike MacDonald. You were hilarious. One of the best ever!!

Canadian comedian Mike MacDonald dies at 62

Canadian comedian Mike MacDonald died Saturday at the age of 62.

The comedian’s brother, JP MacDonald, confirmed MacDonald’s death to CBC News on Sunday, saying he died at the Ottawa Heart Institute due to heart complications.

Comedy organizations and local talent expressed their grief Saturday night on social media, saying that Canada lost a legend.

The renowned comedian touched many lives, said Howard Wagman, owner of Yuk Yuks Ottawa, where MacDonald used to perform.

“Mike MacDonald was pretty much the first Canadian superstar in our business,” Wagman said, his voice heavy with emotion. “We’re talking about 40 years and countless comedians that emulated and learned from him, he was a ground breaker, he was an original, he was truly Canadian.”

Born in France, MacDonald grew up on military bases around the world. When his father retired, the family settled in Ottawa where he attended Brookfield High School.

He moved to Toronto in the late 1970s to kick off his career as a comedian, performing at shows across the city.

During his 40-year career, he travelled across North America and appeared on numerous shows, including Just for Laughs, Late Night with David Letterman, The Arsenio Hall Show and the Comedy Club All-Star Show.

Long known as one of Canada’s top standup comedians, he wrote and starred in three CBC specials of his own, including Mike MacDonald; On Target; My House! My Rules; and Happy As I Can Be.

“He connected so well with an audience,” Wagman said. “One of the key things to standup comedy is having a connection with the audience. If they are not in your head, if they are not with you, you cannot sell.”

The comedian’s health trouble began in 2011 when he was diagnosed with Hepatitis C and waited months for a liver transplant, which he received after an outpouring of support from fans. He returned to the show world shortly after.

“When the career spans 40 years, there are different incarnations of who he was,” said Wagman. “The early days were nothing like what the last decade was like.”

MacDonald battled drug addiction and bipolar disorder in his adult life. He spoke publicly about his difficulties and performed at shows like Stand Up for Mental Health in Ottawa.

MacDonald died in an Ottawa hospital with family by his side, Wagman said.

A host of comedy organizations and Canadian talent paid tributes to the late comedian on social media Saturday night.


I was on my way to see TOMB RAIDER when I decided that I’d rather go home and stream MUPPET GUYS TALKING instead. That documentary is amazing and you can find it at Enjoy!!

Black Panther tops Tomb Raider to claim fifth weekend at box office

Wakanda forever — and for the fifth weekend in a row.

Disney and director Ryan Coogler’s superhero blockbuster Black Panther is on track to rule the box office once again, earning an estimated $27 million this weekend at 3,834 theaters in the U.S. and Canada. That figure should be enough to hold off Warner Bros. and MGM’s new Tomb Raider reboot, which will bow with about $23.5 million — but the weekend’s big surprise is Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate’s faith-based drama I Can Only Imagine, which is poised to outperform expectations with an estimated $17 million from 1,629 theaters, putting it in third place.

After 31 days in theaters, Black Panther will have grossed about $605.4 million at the domestic box office, making it the seventh film ever to pass the $600 million mark in North America. It’s also the first movie since 2009’s Avatar to top the box office for five consecutive weeks. Overseas, Black Panther has grossed about $577.1 million, putting its worldwide total at a hefty $1.18 billion.

The 18th installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe stars Chadwick Boseman as the titular superhero, a.k.a. T’Challa, who leads and protects the secretive, technologically advanced nation of Wakanda. The cast also features Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Andy Serkis, and Letitia Wright. Black Panther has garnered glowing reviews and an A-plus CinemaScore.

As for Tomb Raider, the weekend’s No. 2 film, $23.5 million (at 3,854 theaters) represents a somewhat soft opening for a movie that reportedly cost about $90 million to make and is intended to breathe new life into the 22-year-old franchise, which began as a popular video game series.

Directed by Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug (The Wave), Tomb Raider stars Alicia Vikander as the globetrotting treasure seeker Lara Croft, a role previously played by Angelina Jolie. Jolie’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider opened with $47.7 million in 2001, while her Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life opened with $21.8 million in 2003.

Reviews for the new Tomb Raider were lukewarm, though many praised Vikander, while moviegoers gave it a so-so B CinemaScore. The film fared well internationally this weekend, taking in about $84.5 million in 65 territories.

With its strong showing in third place, I Can Only Imagine will outpace Disney’s high-profile fantasy A Wrinkle in Time, earning about $16.6 million in its second weekend, and Fox’s well-reviewed gay teen romance Love, Simon, opening with about $11.5 million.

Directed by Andrew Erwin and Jon Erwin and starring J. Michael Finley, I Can Only Imagine recounts the story behind the MercyMe song of the same name, the best-selling Christian single of all time. The movie received an A-plus CinemaScore from audiences, which bodes well for word-of-mouth prospects.

Love, Simon also notched an A-plus CinemaScore, while its opening is in line with industry projections. Greg Berlanti, the CW superhero mastermind, directed the movie, which is based on Becky Albertalli’s YA novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Nick Robinson stars in the story of a closeted gay teen dealing with blackmail and the tribulations of high school.

According to ComScore, overall box office is up 2.2 percent year-to-date. Check out the March 16-18 figures below.

1. Black Panther — $27 million
2. Tomb Raider — $23.5 million
3. I Can Only Imagine — $17 million
4. A Wrinkle in Time — $16.6 million
5. Love, Simon — $11.5 million
6. Game Night — $5.6 million
7. Peter Rabbit — $5.2 million
8. The Strangers: Prey at Night — $4.8 million
9. Red Sparrow — $4.5 million
10. Death Wish — $3.4 million


Rest In Peace, Mr. Hawking.

Why Stephen Hawking was so important to science

On Wednesday morning, renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking died at the age of 76. His contributions to science changed the way we look at the universe.

Born in Oxford, England, Hawking was a mediocre student as a child but went on to revolutionize physics and cosmology — the study of the origin and evolution of the universe.

But he did something perhaps even more challenging: he brought such deep thinking about how the universe began and where it’s going to the general public in his bestselling book, A Brief History of Time, which was later turned into a documentary.

Hawking became a fixture in pop culture, with appearances on television shows such as The Big Bang Theory, The Simpsons and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

While Hawking may be a household name, many people aren’t necessarily familiar with his contributions to science.

Here are a few of his most important ideas:

– Hawking radiation
Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity, published in 1915, suggested the existence of black holes — an object whose gravitational pull is so intense that once something passes a region known as the event horizon, there’s no escape.

Over the years, the theory of black holes gained favour as further research supported their existence.

In 1974, Hawking shocked the physics community by theorizing that some things can escape a black hole before crossing the event horizon. Subatomic particle pairs — such as photons and neutrinos — near that point of no return could result in one particle being ejected. This became known as Hawking radiation.

Interestingly, Hawking initially didn’t believe it possible. He only came to that conclusion when he tried to prove a young student, Jacob Bekenstein, who had initially made the suggestion, wrong.

– The black hole debate
In 2014, Hawking released a paper titled Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes in which he surprised the astrophysics community by suggesting black holes weren’t so black after all. He challenged his initial theory from 1974 that suggested nothing could escape a black hole after crossing the event horizon. His new paper said light may be able to pass through the point of no return area and leak information in the form of matter.

However, he theorized that what comes out of it would not resemble what went in. So, for example, if a Tesla Roadster with a mannequin behind the wheel went into a black hole, the scrambled atoms that might come out would be unrecognizable.

– Big bang
These days, the big bang theory is the widely accepted scientific explanation of the origin of our universe, but there was a time when the idea seemed preposterous. Even British astronomer Fred Hoyle, who coined the term in 1949, didn’t believe the theory.

In 1970, Hawking, along with fellow physicist Roger Penrose, suggested the universe began with a singularity, a location where space and time are indistinguishable. It’s as if a black hole went in reverse. Their research supported the theory that the universe began with a big bang.

– Theory of everything
While Hawking’s theories revolutionized the way physicists think about the universe, he never won a Nobel Prize because his theories haven’t been proven. For example, even if energy is released from a black hole, its temperature would be so low it would be difficult to measure.

At one time, Hawking had hoped to find a theory that could explain all the physical aspects of the universe, one that could unite the theory of general relativity (the study of the very large aspects of our universe) and quantum theory (the study of the very small).

But in 2010, Hawking admitted that science may never be able to find the “theory of everything.”

While the renowned scientist is gone, it’s likely that his theories will be discussed for a long time yet.


He’s 100% right!!

Matt LeBlanc convinced ‘Friends’ reunion ‘would not be funny’

Matt LeBlanc is convinced a Friends reunion is dead, because all the characters have moved on with their lives.

The actor, who played dim-witted Joey Tribbiani on the classic TV show, insists the series was a hit because it dealt with young people in between school and life – and going back to the characters now would not be funny.

“I’ve talked to the writers about it,” he tells TV talk show host Steve Harvey. “That show was about a very finite period in your life when you’re like… between 20 and 30, when you’re outta school but life hasn’t really started yet, and your friends are your family and you’re kinda finding your way.

“When that period is over, it’s over. All the characters have gone their separate ways…”

LeBlanc admits he still meets fans of the show, who ask him about plans for a reunion with castmates David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, and Jennifer Aniston, and reveals many people want to know what he thinks his beloved TV character would be doing now.

“Nobody wants to see Joey at his colonoscopy,” he laughs.

LeBlanc took five years off after the success of Friends and spin-off Joey so he could focus on raising his daughter and creating his dream home on a ranch north of Santa Barbara, California.

He has found TV success again as the host of British car show Top Gear and as the star of a new U.S. sitcom Man With a Plan. He also played a comical version of himself in hit cable comedy Episodes.


I’d love to see this film, but I doubt that it’ll ever get made.

Arnold Schwarzenegger: Eddie Murphy onboard for ‘Triplets’

Arnold Schwarzenegger cannot wait to start filming the long-gestating Twins sequel with Danny Devito and Eddie Murphy.

The Terminator star previously revealed Murphy was interested in joining the cast for the follow-up to the 1988 buddy comedy movie, in which he and DeVito portrayed unlikely siblings separated at birth, although they were still waiting on the final script to be delivered.

Now Arnold has confirmed the screenplay is complete, and all three actors are ready to jump into action for Triplets.

According to, he shared the news during a recent panel discussion at the South by Southwest music and film festival in Austin, Texas, explaining Murphy will play the third brother.

Teasing fans about how filmmakers will explain the physical differences between the triplets, he said, “(It will be a) funny thing that happens in the mixing of the sperm (sic).”

The news emerges almost a year after Schwarzenegger claimed both Eddie and original director/producer Ivan Reitman were involved in the franchise sequel, with the project expected to move into production in the coming months.

“It’s just around the corner,” he told last May.

A start date has yet to be announced, but the film will mark Murphy’s first since 2016’s dramatic comedy Mr. Church.

The Shrek star has cut back on his screen work in recent years, but he is also poised to reprise his classic role as Detective Axel Foley in a fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie after revisiting the character for a 2013 TV film of the same name.
