According to The Hollywood Reporter, the next Star Wars anthology films after Han Solo’s may be about Obi-Wan Kenobi. Their sources claim Stephen Daldry is in early talks with Lucasfilm to head up the project.
Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm and announced the Star Wars anthology films series, there has been speculation about an Obi-Wan Kenobi installment. It seems an obvious idea as the actor who played the character in the prequel trilogy (Ewan McGregor) is currently about the right age to reprise the role for a story set between Star Wars 3 and Star Wars 4. McGregor has said, “it would be fun to do.”
Of course, this is little more than rumors at this point and may never happen. If it does, it will be at least a couple of years out since there is not yet a script.

Yesterday, Bethesda Game Studios announced the upcoming release of Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition. This edition of the game will collect the base game as well as all downloadable content released for it but no new material.
Fallout 4 was originally released on November 10th, 2015. This new edition will be releasing just under two years later, on September 26th of this year.
Of particular interest to many fans is the Pip Boy edition of the game, which come with a life-sized replica of the Pip Boy device from the Fallout games. There was a similar limited edition of the initial release but it sold out very quickly.
Are you a fan of the Fallout series? Will you be buying this edition of the game or do you already have everything included? We’d love to hear from you on the comments or on social media.
A few hours ago, Deadline broke the news that Tim Miller has been named director for a film adaptation of Neuromancer currently in development. Tim Miller is possibly best known as director of 2016’s Deadpool.
This is potentially exciting news but some are quick to point out some version of a Neuromancer film has been in development off and on for nearly the past 30 years. It’s also worth noting this project does not yet even have a writer involved, so there isn’t even a script.
Do you think Tim Miller is the correct choice for the job? Do you think the movie will even be made, or is the property cursed? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
Neuromancer is, of course, William Gibson’s 1984 debut novel and is considered by many to be the genre-defining cyberpunk novel. It was the first novel to ever win the Nebula Award, Phillip K. Dick Award, and the Hugo Award.
The second episode of the third season of the sci-fi comedy animated series Rick and Morty will air today, July 30th. This comes after the first episode of the season aired unannounced during Adult Swim on April 1st of this year.
Fans are understandably excited as it has been more than a year since the second season ended. There were even rumors season three would never happen as well as many rumored start dates that didn’t come to pass (often originating in or being spread by members of the somewhat imfamous Rick and Morty Schwiftposting Facebook group.)
Season Three, episode two airs on Cartoon Network as part of the Adult Swim block of programming at 11:30PM EST. The trailer for this season can be found below.

At the Stargate 20th Anniversary Panel at San Diego Comic Con, MGM announced a new Stargate series is coming. This series will be called Stargate Origins.
Not a lot of information was given during the panel but we do know a few things. First is Stargate Origins begins filming next month. Next is the lead character will be Catherine Langford. If you remember the movie, Catherine Langford was the woman who hired Daniel Jackson to look into the Stargate in the original movie and it was her father who discovered it. This brings into question where the series falls in the continuity of the franchise as Stargate SG-1 established Catherine did not travel through the Stargate until much later in life. It is possible Stargate Origins is a reboot and the previous three series will no longer be considered canon.
We will try to bring you more information as it becomes available. Until then, what are your thoughts? Are you looking forward to this new Stargate series or would you rather SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe be allowed to stand as they are?
This trailer (included below) shows much more than the initial teaser, giving us a further look at the animation and hints of the story.
In a Twitter poll conducted after last month’s news, we found more of our followers are fans of the 1997 Starship Troopers film than not. Where do you stand? What did you think of the sequels? Are you looking forward to Traitor of Mars? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
Warner Bros has released another trailer for the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, Blade Runner 2049.
Blade Runner 2049 has a star-studded cast, led by Ryan Gosling and the returning Harrison Ford. It is due to be released on October 6th of this year.
The original Blade Runner was somewhat loosely based on the classic Phillip K Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? While there were sequels to that novel (and somewhat to the original film) written, this film is not following their path.
What do you think of the new trailer? Are you looking forward to this movie?

Whittaker will be taking over the role of the Doctor from Peter Capaldi. Her first appearance will be in this year’s Christmas special on December 25th.
At the end of last week, Entertainment Weekly brought us another first look. This time, it was at the upcoming film adaptation of the Ernest Cline novel Ready Player One.
Ready Player One (the novel) was released in 2011. It depicts a grim future where the world may be on its last legs and many people have dedicated their lives to a contest taking place within an online game. Built upon 80s pop culture references, the book has found a wide audience and is particularly popular among cyberpunk fans.
Steven Spielberg is directing the film adaptation, which is expected to release in spring of 2018.
