Star Wars: The Last Jedi Director Weighs In On Singular Or Plural Question

When Lucasfilm announced the official title for Episode VIII–The Last Jedi–fans immediately wanted to know if Jedi should be considered singular or plural, as it can mean both.

Alan Wake, Quantum Break Dev Confirms New Project, Codenamed P7

What's next for Alan Wake and Quantum Break developer Remedy? As part of its latest earnings report (via PlayStation Lifestyle), the Finnish studio shared some further insight, including the confirmation of a new “game project” that is codenamed P7.
That the game exists is about all we know. However, Remedy did say that its goal for it is to release it on a “wider range of platforms,” which suggests it won't be exclusive to any one system.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi — Mark Hamill Talks About Luke And His Journey

We finally saw more of Luke Skywalker in the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Now, actor Mark Hamill has discussed Luke's journey in the new movie and more. Speaking to Fandango, Hamill said Luke is a “completely different person” in the new movie.
“He had an arc [in the original trilogy], and I think [Carrie Fisher] and [Harrison Ford] admitted their characters were pretty much the same throughout, but Luke was always changing,” Hamill said. “Now we have this 30-year gap between the films, so a lot of it is conjecture. It's not specifically my story– Rey is now the protagonist.”
Also in the interview, Hamill talked about how it took him some time to warm up to The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson's ideas for Luke.
“I think you'll find some things that'll surprise you,” he explained. “They certainly surprised me. I said to Rian, I think I fundamentally disagree with everything you've decided for me. Now having said that, I have to accept it, get m..

Bloodline Season 3 Trailer And Premiere Date Revealed

The end is nigh for Bloodline. Netflix today released the first trailer and announced the premiere date for the show's third season, which is expected to be its last.
All 10 episodes of Season 3 will premiere on May 26, which is Memorial Day weekend in the US.
Bloodline follows the Rayburns, a family in Florida who hide horrible secrets and are continually lying to keep their deeds under wraps. Season 2 ended with a dramatic cliffhanger, so fans of the series will be happy to see the show come back and hopefully offer a satisfying conclusion.
Although this trailer makes it clear that Season 3 is expected to be Bloodline's last, series creators Todd Kessler, Glenn Kessler, and Daniel Zelman have said they had five or six seasons mapped out. A report from last year suggested that future seasons could air outside of Netflix, though nothing is confirmed.
Another element to this story is that Florida, where the show is set and where it films, cut its entertainment tax incentive pr..

One of the benefits of an EA Access subscription is that it lets you play at least a portion of upcoming games before they are released publicly. In many cases, the early access period begins five days before launch. But for Star Wars: Battlefront II, EA Access members can start even sooner.
A post on the Battlefront II pre-order website shows that EA/Origin Access subscribers can begin playing on November 9, which is eight days before the game's November 17 release date. Progress carries over to the full game for players who decide to pick it up.
The early access period for 2015's Battlefront started on November 12, five days before the game's official release date. The early play period had a time limit (10 hours) and it can be expected that Battlefront II's early access period will have a playtime cap of its own.
EA/Origin Access subscriptions are available for $5/month or $30/year. The latter is the more economical choice if you are sure you want to subscribe..
