Fandom News

Movie & Television News

  • Star Wars Forces of Destiny Season 2 is now available online if you haven’t watched them already.
  • Beyond Star Wars, there’s a trailer out for a new Johnny Knoxville movie that might be pretty funny. It’s called Action Point. Looks like this is combining the elements of the Jackass movies, but this time there’s a narrative. It’ll be out in June.

  • Andrew Garfield is starring in a conspiracy theory comedy called Under the Silver Lake. It will also be out in June.

If you like political thrillers, there’s Backstabbing For Beginners, though I’m not sure if this one is going to be good or not. It does have Ben Kingsley. It will be out next month.

  • Sicario: Day of the Soldado has a new trailer.

  • There’s a star studded comedy called Tag which actually looks like it might be good. It’ll be out in June.

  • An Ordinary Man looks kind of interesting. This looks like a much better Ben Kingsley film. It will be out next month.

  • Melissa McCarthy is upping her game with something more serious in Can You Ever Forgive Me? This one will be out in October.

  • If you like Aussie horror movies, there’s Boar. It’ll be out in Australia in October, no US release date yet.

  • For some good old American horror, there’s the Wildling. It will also be out next month.

  • Last but not least, the new Infinity War trailer.

Toy & Collectible News

  • With the deadline for Hasbro’s sail barge drawing nearer, they’ve started upping their promotion for the possible project with a Q&A, an assembly video, and an image gallery. Jedi News has even more images which you can check out here.
