A new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is coming on Monday, October 9. A teaser trailer released today shows Rey wielding a lightsaber, which is interesting. Now, director Rian Johnson has spoken up to say that, while he enjoys the trailer, you may want to avoid it if you're hoping see The Last Jedi with fresh eyes come December.
That already basically goes without saying, as a trailer for anything–even a video game about a big, mean goose–will spoil something for you. But movie trailers these days can sometimes give too much away. And Johnson's specific language–“absolutely avoid it”–seems to suggest that this new trailer could have some kind of big reveal. We don't know for sure, but we'll find out soon, as the trailer it set to drop during Monday Night Football tomorrow evening on Disney's sports channel ESPN.
I a legitimately torn. If you want to come in clean, absolutely avoid it.
But it’s gooooood….. https://t.co/Y29K5yz8i4

A trailer for Castle Rock, the new Stephen King TV show worked on by Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams' production company Bad Robot, has arrived. The short-but-sweet trailer sets up the psychological thriller series. The show is set in the “Stephen King multiverse,” and you'll spot references to some of King's best-known works in this trailer such as It, Cujo, and Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption.
Castle Rock is described as a “first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.”
The show stars Bill Skarsgard, who recently won praise for his portray of Pennywise the clown in the King movie It. Sissy Spacek, who played Carrie in the 1976 Stephen King movie of the same name, also appears in Castle Rock. The show premieres in 2018, exclusively on Hulu.
This isn't the first time Abrams and King have teamed up for a Hulu series, as ..
Just days after The New York Times published a huge feature about American film executive Harvey Weinstein reportedly paying off sexual harassment accusers, his company, The Weinstein Company, announced today that he has been terminated.

Nintendo Switch-exclusive fighting game Arms is getting a new update soon, and it will seemingly include a new character. Check out the trailer above and you'll catch a glimpse of what appears to be a mecha version of Spring Man from the base game.
In addition, the new update will add Badges that unlock when you complete certain challenges, such as winning your first Grand Prix or playing a number of matches with one character. Nintendo only says the free update is coming “later this month;” we'll let you know when a precise release date is announced.
The last couple of Arms updates have included a new character, Lola Pop, and two new stages: Sparring Ring and Via Dolce. Nintendo has continually added new Arms content since launch, with previous free DLC adding another fighter called Max Brass and including a new set of training exercises.
In other Switch news, Nintendo has reportedly increased production of the hybrid console to 2 million units per month in light of its high..
We got some hands on with the new English version of Code Vein. With a longer demo we were able to explore a little more of the area, find some new weapons and kill some new monsters.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was a surprise hit when it launched in 2014, and we even named it our Game of the Year. Three years later, its sequel, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, is about to launch.
It's already been the subject of controversy: DLC honoring Michael Forgey, a developer who passed away last year, came under fire after there were indications that a portion of the profits wouldn't go to Forgey's widow and children. Publisher Warner Bros. later apologized and made the DLC free for everyone. Shadow of War's microtransactions have also been criticized, as the first game didn't include them.
Otherwise, however, Shadow of War seems to be going down well with critics. We awarded the open-world game a 7/10 in our review. “It tries to be larger than its predecessor … yet it leaves you wanting less,” wrote Justin Haywald. “But at its core, it's a fun experience with brilliant moments that provide fascinating insight into some of the untold stories of M..
With the second season of one of Netflix's most well-known shows, Stranger Things, releasing later this month, the streaming service has announced changes to its subscription prices in the United States. Some but not all of its subscription options are now more expensive for US customers.
The standard $10 per month option increases by $1 to $11, while the 4K-supporting $12 tier jumps up $2 to $14. At least for the time being, the basic $8 plan will remain at its current price. These prices are in effect for new customers as of today, while those who already subscribe will see the higher charges in an upcoming billing cycle, according to a Netflix statement shared with CNET.
“Starting Oct. 19, members will be notified at least 30 days in advance, based on billing cycle, on when they will see the price change,” the company said. “Members will be notified with an email and also see a notification within the service. The price change will roll out to members over the course of the nex..
