“Stick a fork in it: Solo: A Star Wars Story is pretty much officially a flop. Its performance hasn’t improved since its unimpressive debut and shows no sign of getting a boost. Moreover, judging from the fallout, the movie had more of an impact amongst conspiracy theorists than anyone else. Want proof? Read on.

Is Kathleen Kennedy Leaving Lucasfilm?

The Source: Random online gossipmongers

Probability of Accuracy: Not even slightly true.

The Real Deal: Lets start with something thats quite clearly wishful thinking on the part of a number of Star Wars fans: For the last couple of weeks, there have been rumors that Kathleen Kennedy is stepping down as Lucasfilm president, with Marvels Kevin Feige being named as her potential replacement. This is, to be blunt, complete and utter banthawash. (Look, we’re trying to keep it clean and on-topic.)

“The Walking Dead‘s Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) is officially done with the show, but he’s poised now to leap into a spin-off trilogy of movies. It looks like there may be similar plans in the works for another AMC series: Breaking Bad.

Creator Vince Gilligan is reportedly working on a two-hour movie set inside the Breaking Bad universe. Don’t get too excited yet, as the news comes from unnamed sources speaking to The Hollywood Reporter.

It’s not clear if the movie is intended for television or theatrical release, though Lincoln’s spin-off trilogy is notably bound for AMC. The network could have designs on turning more of its top series into made-for-TV movies.

It’s also not yet known if Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul will participate in any way. There are certain limitations on continuing their stories from the show, as anyone who watched Breaking Bad no doubt realizes. A prequel featuring the duo seems similarly unlikely, given how the series opens and introduces them……………………………………………………”

“The first image of Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers is here and it will brighten your day.

Tom Hanks will be playing Mister Rogers in an upcoming untitled biopic, and seeing him in that iconic red cardigan and blue sneakers is heartwarming. Take a look:

The Mister Rogers biopic, which is slated to come out in October 2019, is inspired by the life of Fred Rogers, the inspirational and inimitable host of the children’s TV show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Specifically, the biopic will look at Rogers’ relationship with journalist Tom Junod, who wrote a profile of Rogers for Esquire in 1998.

Rogers created the show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood which for years taught children and adults alike how to be more kind to each other and take care of themselves. The show impacted so many people in the decades that it aired, delivering innumerable tidbits of wisdom until its final episode in 2001.

Rogers passed away in 2003, leaving behind an unmarred legacy of promoting happiness, self-care, and empathy to the world.

The biopic is being directed by Diary of a Teenage Girl director Marielle Heller and was slated to start production this fall.
