If there was a reason to sign up for Disney+ then it would be for Star Wars TV show The Mandalorian, which co-creator Jon Favreau has just confirmed Season 2 is coming.
The Mandalorian just finished its first season on Disney+ with Favreau tweeting the Season 2 of the show would be coming in Fall 2020. Favreau tweeted out a picture of what looks like a near-nude Gamorrean, a green-skinned, pig-nosed species that was featured in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi as guards at Jabba the Hutt's palace.
Favreau was a co-creator on The Mandalorian and while he wrote some episodes of the first season, he was too busy to direct an episode. Favreau was busy filming The Lion King at the time, but has said that he wants to direct an episode of Season 2 of The Mandalorian.
Ryan Reynolds has given the world an update on the process of Deadpool 3, now that Disney acquired Fox -- and Marvel Studios.
After the Disney-Fox merger, people were concerned over what would happen to the next Deadpool movie. Fox had the rights, but Disney owned the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- of which Deadpool was hard to fit in, and vica versa, because of various legalities. But now? Well, it's all water under Disney's gigantic bridge
During a recent appearance on Live! With Kelly and Ryan, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds was asked about Deadpool 3 and we have some news to share. Reynolds said: "Yeah, we're working on it right now with the whole team. We're over at Marvel now, which is like the big leagues all of a sudden. It's kinda crazy. So yeah, we're working on it".
It looks like we just learned another fact about the human race -- where we took our first footsteps, with new research suggesting humanity's earliest footsteps took place in a pre-historic wetland called Makgadikgadi-Okavango, south of the Great Zambezi River.
The ancestors of Homo sapiens started over 200,000 years ago according to the researchers, where Botswana, and even parts of Namibia and Zimbabwe are just south of the where modern day humanity's first footsteps took place. Climate change is being blamed as to why the ancestors of modern day humans moved some 70,000 years ago -- forcing them to migrate out of Africa and then spread throughout the planet.
Previous fossil evidence led researchers to believe that modern humans started out in eastern Africa, but new DNA evidence is showing that the Botswana/Africa region is where it all started. Vanessa Hayes, lead study author at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and the University of Sydney explains: "It has been clear for some time that anatomically modern humans appeared in Africa roughly 200,000 years ago. What has been long debated is the exact location of this emergence and subsequent dispersal of our earliest ancestors. We've been able to pinpoint what we believe is our human homeland".
A new Japanese trailer for the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie, has revealed an adorable baby Sonic. Check it out below.
The trailer which has been released onto Paramount Japan introduces us to Sonic's home planet, where he is doing what he does best, running fast, and doing awesome courses. Even though this trailer is only a short minute, we get to see Sonic as a baby, and boy is he cute!
Is baby Sonic cuter than baby Yoda? If you didn't know, the Sonic The Hedgehog movie underwent a redesign of the character Sonic. This decision was made after the first trailer for the movie was released, and fans were appalled at what their favorite blue hedgehog looked like. The redesign has been finished, and we have Sonic Mania's lead designer to thank for the accurate representation we have now. The Sonic The Hedgehog movie will be racing onto cinema screens on February 13th.
The Witcher has been released, and despite the controversial opinions on whether it's good or not, I think most people would be able to agree that the fight scenes are great.
Vladimir Furdik, who played the dreaded Night King in HBO's goliath show Game of Thrones has released a behind the scenes video of a fight scene in The Witcher TV show. The above video is a behind-the-scenes look at the stuntmen rehearsing the choreography scene to make it look as smooth as possible, and I must say they have done a fantastic job of it.
Since the release of The Witcher TV show, many fans of the series have either gone back to CD Projekt Red's Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, or new fans have decided to pick it up because the game has had a massive influx of players. The showrunner for The Witcher TV show has stood strong in the face of the controversial reviews that are being posted online, more on that story here.
I can't think of a Rick and Morty episode where everything just goes smoothly, in fact, I don't think there's even one. So when everything does go smoothly, it feels really strange and weird.
Above we have an example of just that. Created by Paul Robertson and Tom Walker for Adult Swim, we have Mr. Poopybutthole's Beautiful Day. The title of the one minute video spoils the clip, as the creators aren't lying when they tell you that Mr. Poopybutthole does have a beautiful day.
We see Mr. Poopybutthole and his family taking a nice road trip to a secluded ranch near a lake. They walk on in and start enjoying themselves by playing some cards and sitting by the fire. Mr. Poopybutthole puts his kid to sleep over a nice bedtime story and then goes and sits with his wife. Hearts start to race when Rick pokes his head out of a portal, but he doesn't do anything to mess with Mr. Poopybutthole. Instead, he watches and nods in approval as if he is checking on him to make sure he's alright.
The showrunner for the hit Witcher TV show, Lauren S. Hissrich, has slapped down critics who are comparing her show to David Benioff and D.B. Weiss's Game of Thrones.
If you haven't been jumped into Netflix's Witcher TV show and are wondering if its worth a watch, maybe this article will help you out. I'm going to give you a solid picture of what the reviews are currently looking like at the time of writing this. The Witcher TV show has a 57% critics (44 reviews) on Rotten Tomatoes. While that doesn't sound too exciting, it has a public score of 92% (6,850 reviews).
Hissrich also drew this very same comparison (while not mentioning the numbers), and said in the above Tweet, "Who do I care about? "Professional" critics who watched one episode and skipped ahead? Or REAL fans who watched all eight in one day, and are starting their rewatch?".
The time has finally come! Netflix has released the Witcher TV show onto their streaming platform and you don't have to wait for episodes either.
If you didn't know by now with all the headlines, as well as the social media posts, Netflx has just released the Witcher TV show on their platform. All eight episodes are available to watch right now and each of them are about an hour long each. So if you were planning on to binge the whole season, you can. Just put away about eight hours of your day and sit back and enjoy the show.
If you aren't caught up with Witcher news, check out the final trailer that was released about two weeks ago, it shows off some pretty awesome fight scenes as well as some cool cinema shots. On a positive note, Netflix has already greenlit season 2 of the Witcher, so after you have finished the first season, don't stress about there not being another one as its already on its way. If you need a link to the Witcher TV show, one can be found here.
At the moment, we are currently on a short break from Rick and Morty Season 4, so to make the wait just that little bit easier, Adult Swim has released some shorts.
Before I get into what is shown in each of these videos, I must warn you that if you aren't up to date with Season 4 Episode 5, then these videos will be spoilers of some episodes. I'd advise you to go and watch the episodes before checking out these videos, as I believe you will enjoy them much more after you have seen the episodes.
Moving on now to the contents of the above video. This video is from Season 4 Episode 3, 'One Crew over the Crewcoo's Morty' where the whole episode is one big rip on Heist movies. In the video, we watch Heist-o-Tron attempt the greatest heist of all time - steal a planet's core without its inhabitants knowing.
Deadline has reported that Paramount Pictures has announced that the Jackass film-franchise will live on with another movie.
This will mark the fourth movie in the Jackass franchise, with the first being released back in 2002. Since then, there have been three more movies released, which in total bring the franchises gross to more than $335 million at the box office. Of course, this wouldn't be a Jackass film if the creator, Johnny Knoxville, wasn't involved. He will be returning for the fourth film.
So what will the fourth movie be about? Exactly what the other ones are about. Knoxville and his friends all playing pranks on each other and performing a variety of dangerous and strange stunts that should definitely not be performed at home. Jackass 4 will be arriving on the big screen on March 5th, 2021.
