Star Wars Celebration is happening right now, and it’s bringing us our first look at Star Wars Episode IX. There’s a new droid! Poe Dameron looks super f-cking hot! Carrie Fisher returns thanks to unused footage! All of the main characters are in love with each other so ship your hearts out! And, because we’ve turned movie titles into A THING, we’ve all been waiting to find out what the subtitle of Star Wars Epsidoe IX will be, and it is… “The Rise of Skywalker”. Full Story

With the new Star Wars Episodes bringing back original trilogy characters—and steadily killing them off—it was only a matter of time until they called on the smoothest dude in the galaxy far, far away and brought back OG Lando Calrissian.

That is, they have put the spin-offs on ice for the time being. Collider reports that the “Star Wars Story” branch of films has been suspended indefinitely. Full Story

Going into the weekend, the projection was a $130-150 million four-day Memorial Day weekend, and coming out of the long weekend, the estimate is $84 million for the regular three-day weekend, and $103 million with the extra day tacked on. Full Story

A jaunty new trailer has been released to encourage us to take our Star Wars fan service with grace and good cheer, but the most this trailer musters for me is: I like that editing beat with the buttons after “Push it!”, and also the voice of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s droid (she is the creator of Sandra Oh's project Killing Eve Full Story

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver were photographed in New York on Friday working on Noah Baumbach’s new film. A Noah Baumbach film is a good reset for Scarlett.
