The rumor is that Star Wars Resistance will launch on Disney XD in October.

Wonder Woman Visits Children's Hospital

In case you didn't love Gal Gadot enough already...

The Inova Children's Hospital in Falls Church Virginia just received a visit from Diana Prince herself.

The visit was in full costume.

This took away time from filming the Wonder Woman sequel, but we're fine with that.

I'm not crying, there's something in my eye!

Stan Lee Drops $1B Lawsuit Against POW Entertainment for "Stealing" His Name and Likeness.

The nerd icon and comic book creator previously claimed that he was tricked into signing over his name and likeness.

Stan Lee has dropped the $1 billion lawsuit just short of two months after it was filed.

“The whole thing has been confusing to everyone, including myself and the fans, but I am now happy to be surrounded by those who want the best for me," Lee said in a statement. "I am thrilled to put the lawsuit behind me, get back to business with my friends and colleagues at POW, and launch the next wave of amazing characters and stories!”

WEDNESDAY

 

Lando Calrissian Confirmed For Star Wars: Episode IX.

Between Lucasfilm attacking fans, Solo being way below box office predictions, and the rumor that stand alone films might be put on hold, Star Wars fans are in a desperate need for good news.

After being rumored for months, it can now be confirmed, Billy Dee Williams will indeed be returning as Lando Calrissian for Star Wars Episode IX.

The Hollywood Reporter released this scoop, but with no added details.

Could this be Lucasfilm's way of testing the waters for a Lando movie?

Would you want a Lando movie?

THURSDAY:

 

Kevin Smith Partners With Rivit TV on Comedy Pilot ‘Hollyweed’

Kevin Smith's fans to get his 'green' comedy greenlit!

The show is called “Hollyweed” and was first made in 2016.

Rivit TV however may bring it to life with the power of fandom.

Fans can watch the piolet for free, but then decide if they pay for the show to continue.

Is there anyone more connected to their fans then Kevin Smith?

“Two years ago we shot a pilot for a show called ‘Hollyweed’ and tried to take it out the traditional way but had no luck,” Smith said. “Cut to now, and we get to bring it back to life. Thanks to the good folks at Rivit TV, we raised it from the dead, it’s crazy. Rivit TV was smart enough to take this show and leave it up to my fans.”

“Hollyweed” will be the first pilot for Rivit TV’s new concept and is now available at the rivittv.com.

It's also Smith's first major speaking role, so he is not playing 'Silent Bob' here.

Also in the show are Donnell Rawlings, Ralph Garman, Adam Brody, and of course Jason Mewes.

Mystery Marvel Movie Gets New Release Date

Marvel has always been very clear about what movies were going to be released next.

They have always told us well in advance what shows could be found and where we could find them.

They communicate with fans better than most.

But no one knows about Phase 4m.

However if you look at the nine nine spots on the release date calendar, one of the untitled movies just got a new release date.

Now this is just speculation, but a July 30, 2021 movie has just been moved up to February 12, 2021.

Phase 4 kicks off next year with Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5, 2019.

So much mystery for Phase Four, but please post your predictions below!

FRIDAY:


 

Pow regains control of Stan Lee's Twitter Account.

This is two days after the lawsuit against Pow (Purveyors of Wonder) was dropped.

"We also take very seriously our responsibility as guardians of the Stan Lee brand and legacy. One major hallmark of this legacy is the open, honest and direct relationship Stan has always had with his fans. To help Stan continue the tradition started with Stan’s Soapbox, POW’s social media team created and has for years solely managed therealstanlee Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts, as well as the Facebook page realstanlee, with Stan’s participation and approval."

"But, recently access and management of the Twitter account was temporarily out of our (and Stan’s) control. That situation has now been rectified. Stan Lee’s social media accounts are once again being exclusively managed by POW with Stan’s participation."

https://io9.gizmodo.com/pow-regains-control-of-stan-lees-twitter-account-prom-1827520534

The Game Of Thrones cast was given disappearing scripts.

The battle against spoilers has been brought to a new level.

Cast members were not even given physical scripts.

Scripts were instead given through an app and would disappear after they had a chance to memorize their lines.

Logan director suggests what went wrong with The Last Jedi.

Although Lucasfilm continues to attack fans for the continued fall of the Star Wars franchise, a highly respected director and producer had some wise advice.

James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Wolverine) recently tweeted, “Let movies be free, the same way comics’ve been. Superman didn’t look the same in 1952 as they did in 78 or 99. Encourage filmmakers to follow passion/story over universe building which is just a way to hook you for more dollars. Nolan never could have made Batman Begins if making a sequel.”

He then quickly followed that up with “Perhaps not in a film called Episode ___, however.”

District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp directing new Robocop movie.

They claim that Robocop Returns will not be a re-boot, but a sequel to the original Robocop movie.

But wasn't there already a sequel to that first Robocop movie?

So isn't this the definition of a reboot?

The Joaquin Phoenix Joker origin story is now officially confirmed by Warner Brothers.

However, it will be directed by The Hangover director Todd Phillips.

It is said to be completely different from past DCEU releases.

The good news is that it doesn't have Jared Leto.

The $1,200 Whisky Flight!

It’s available at The Bar at the Baccarat Hotel in New York City.

Have you ever had whisky that costs $400 per ounce?

The flight is comprised of Dalmore 40 Year Old, Dalmore 35 Year Old, and Dalmore 25 Year Old. Add up the expressions and you get a nice even 100 years of whisky.

The flight includes three different ages of Dalmore whisky.

The 40 year old, a 35 year old, and a 25 year old.

Only 750 bottlings of Dalmore 40 are released annually, and 1,000 of the 25 and 35, so this stuff is rare.

To read a very well done review of the flight, check the link in the show notes above.

The new Deadpool Blu-Ray comes with a Children's book.

Since this is Deadpool, do we need to say that this kids book is totally not for kids?

It's 24 pages long and is actually called Deadpool 2: A (Not Suitable for) Children’s Book.

Deadpool 2 Blu-Ray will be released on August 21, 2018.

https://www.cbr.com/deadpool-2-blu-ray-nsfw-childrens-book/

 

Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ Movie Lands Director Cate Shortland.

Despite recent controversy, Scarlett Johansson will still star in the new Black Widow movie.

They met with 70 potential filmmakers before choosing Cate Shortland as director.

while this will be her biggest production so far, Marvel has a history of finding lesser known directors, and making them huge.

There is no release date because Marvel is tight lipped about anything after Avengers 4.

NERD NEWS:

 

MONDAY:

 

Kaley Cuoco Gets Married Again.

The Big Bang Theory actress married professional equestrian Karl Cook.

She wore a bridal cape and jumpsuit, yes a cape.

The pair tied the knot on a ranch near San Diego.

“He lets me wake up in the morning and say, ‘I want to go and rescue rabbits.’ And he’s like, ‘All right, let’s get a coffee and let’s go.’

Avengers 4 Title Announced!

Someone actually bothered to check the resume page kept by Avengers 4 cinematographer Trent Opaloch, for some reason.

It may be lucky that they did, as Omega Underground reports that Opaloch gave away the movie's real title: Avengers: End Game

https://www.maxim.com/entertainment/avengers-4-cinematographer-leaked-avengers-end-game-2018-7

 

DC Comics Spoiled Batman and Catwoman's Wedding in the New York Times.

The New York Times ran a story about the upcoming Batman #50.

It's due out Wednesday with writing by Tom King and art by Mikel Janin, with colors by June Chung and lettering by Clayton Cowles, along with a bevy of guest artists.

The article reveals that Batman isn’t getting married this Wednesday.

Batman and Catwoman, the legendary hero/anti-villain pairing, is not meant to be.

At least not in the canon DC Universe, that is.

TUESDAY:

 

All Of Modern Doctor Who Available Online.

The good news is that all ten seasons of modern Doctor Who is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.

The bad news is that it is just for those in the UK.

This includes all specials, Christmas episodes, 50th anniversary, mini-episode The Night of the Doctor, etc.

Yes, the full eras of the past four Doctors.

This would be a brutal non-stop 7 day binge session.

JJ Abrams Star Trek cast to be in Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek.

What's keeping Disney from dismissing Kathleen Kennedy from Star Wars.

Rumors continue that Disney's Bob Iger is trying to get rid of Kathleen Kennedy.

Apparently nobody wants her job because Kathleen Kennedy has created a house that's divided.

Her fierce supporters (that she put in place), against the loyalists to the brand itself (that were there before Kathleen).

A Thanos-inspired subreddit is about to ban more than 100,000 members.

The moderators behind r/thanosdidnothingwrong, a forum dedicated to the Avengers’ arch-nemesis, will ban half of its members on July 9 in honor of Thanos’ ultimate goal: destroying half of the world’s population to protect survivors from starvation and overcrowding.

Infinity War makes it very clear this isn’t the best way to handle major problems afflicting our very survival, but some fans have clung to Thanos’ theory.

That means taking his word as gospel and annihilating half of the subreddit’s virtual population.

THURSDAY:

 

Avengers: Infinity War Blu-Ray Includes 30 Mins Thanos Backstory?

It seems that a 30 minute bacstory for Thanos hit the cutting room floor before theatrical release.

It is rumored that the footage will be released as part of the Blu-Ray release.

Well, more than a rumor since it was said by Jim Starlin, who was the writer of The Infinity Gauntlet!

He says that the footage won’t just be included as deleted scenes, but will be incorporated back into the film and presented as an Extended Cut either on the initial Blu-ray release or perhaps a special edition that’ll be released before Avengers 4 hits.

New 'Firefly' Series Announced.

Boom Studios has acquired the rights to create and publish comic books based on Joss Whedon’s Firefly.

The first Firefly story told at Boom begins in Firefly #1 and is written by Greg Pak with art by Dan McDaid.

The story focus on the War of Unification, the war between the Alliance and the Independents in which Malcolm Reynolds and Zoe Alleyne Washburne fought together on the losing side, an experience that defined their characters throughout Firefly’s run.

Boom is also publishing a series of Firefly Legacy Edition collections, reprinting the Dark Horse Comics Firefly stories.

Firefly #1 goes on sale in November.

Ahmed Best was the actor who played Jar Jar Binks

He recently tweeted that fans were so nasty that he considered suicide.

Best made the announcement Tuesday, in a tweet pic of himself and his son on a bridge.

"This was the place I almost ended my life. It’s still hard to talk about. I survived and now this little guy is my gift for survival."

He never mentioned "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" specifically, but did mention "20 years" ago, which lines up to his role as Jar Jar Binks.

He's previously said the negative reaction from the public included death threats.

Jack Daniel's will no longer sponsor the Iditarod.

The maker of Jack Daniel’s whiskey has dropped its long-running sponsorship of Alaska’s Iditarod sled race, the company said on Wednesday.

The move by Louisville, Ky.-based Brown-Forman followed a tough year for organizers of the 1,000-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race who have faced financial hardships, the loss of other sponsors and its first-ever dog doping scandal.

Jack Daniel’s decided to go a different direction by shifting most of its marketing efforts to a partnership with the National Basketball Association, company spokesman Svend Jansen said in a statement.

Of course the entire point of superhero movies is to unplug from reality, but if when things get too crazy it can make even that a challenge.

So have you ever raised an eyebrow over how Captain America survived being frozen?

Marvel has used science to back up the character's survival, and apparently the Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. in Las Vegas actually features an explanation for the character's survival. In the Captain America section of the area, it says:

Physical examination of Capt. Rogers revealed that while thickened, his blood's water was not frozen. Blood tests revealed that his blood contained excessive amounts of glucose as a result of his liver processing his glycogen stores, thus lowering the freezing temperature of blood-borne water and creating a 'cryoprotectant'. This process is similar to that of Water-Bears (Tardigrades) and hibernating Wood Frogs who metabolize glycogen in their liver to circulate copious amounts through their body to reduce the osmotic shrinkage of cells and stop from freezing. This, however, has never been seen before in humans.

Do you find this plausible enough?

'The Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan Asks Fans To Stop Showing Up At His House Unannounced.

The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan is having a hard time with fans showing up at his house uninvited.

The actor, who previously starred in Supernatural and the Watchmen movie, took to Twitter on Tuesday to request his fans stop showing up at his house as if they're old pals just to knock on the door. In the words of his Negan character, it's "not cool."

The tweet in full reads:

Dear people that think it’s a solid plan to come to our house, take pictures, drive up to house, knock on door... it’s not a good plan. It’s rude and creepy. Respect our privacy please. And... you’re being recorded.

FRIDAY:


 

Kevin Smith Is Trying to Find Comic Book Men a New Network.

AMC pulled the plug on the program in late June, but there's a chance it could continue if it's picked up. For now, nothing is certain.

The show centered around Smith and his friends Brian, Walter, Mike, and Ming who all hang out at a comic book store owned by Smith himself.

The reality-TV show ran for an impressive seven seasons equaling 96 episodes before it was canceled last week.  

Smith may be fishing his show around to other networks but so far none of the networks have bitten.

2 weeks ago, half a bourbon warehouse collapsed. Now, the other half is down.

Perhaps it was only a matter of time, but the remaining half of a Kentucky bourbon warehouse, which collapsed two weeks ago has come crashing down.

The second half of the building has collapsed, sending another 9,000 barrels of liquor crashing down along with it.

The Barton 1792 Distillery in Kentucky, which can store up to 20,000 barrels, was undergoing repairs at the time of the first incident back in June.

Barrels from that collapse still haven't been cleaned up because of worker safety concerns, CNN affiliate WLKY reported. It's not clear what caused either collapse.

Caught In Tariff War, U.S. Distillers Fear Losing Out On Global Whiskey Boom.

U.S. whiskey distillers are fretting over the steep new tariffs they're facing around the world.

They're being punished as U.S. trading partners retaliate against the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum.

Now, the distillers fear that a long boom in U.S. whiskey exports could be coming to an end.

Kentucky bourbon has experienced a huge revival over the past decade — thanks in large part to U.S. trade initiatives that have opened up global markets, says Eric Gregory of the Kentucky Distillers' Association.

DEADPOOL Creator Rob Liefeld Got In Trouble For Asking Russell Crowe To Audition To Play Cable.

Last year, Rob Liefeld Tweeted Russell Crowe about the possibility of auditioning to play Cable in the Deadpool sequel.

Now, the writer has revealed that this Tweet got him in hot water with the studio.

"One night before I went to bed, I didn’t know Russell Crowe was on Twitter, and I stupidly tweeted to Russell Crowe – not ever thinking he’d answer me – and I go ‘Hey Russell, you should read for Cable!’ That didn’t turn out very well, I got yelled at a lot, because I woke up – because he’s in Australia – to Russell Crowe saying ‘Read for it?!’ And my manager said ‘Yeah, Russell Crowe doesn’t read for parts Rob, you kind of insulted him. I’m like ‘I’m sorry! They just haven’t picked Cable yet so I’m just putting it out there.’ And then my phone rings, so some Fox people may or may not have yelled at me for an hour."

NERD NEWS

 

Monday:

Why Lucasfilm is wrong to keep attacking fans.

Remember the Ghostbusters Reboot that failed?

When people brought up the weak script,

They were accused of being racist and sexist.

Yet people couldn't stop raving about how well done Wonder Woman was.

Fans are still talking endlessly about how great Black Panther was too.

Luke Cage gets endless praise,

While Iron Fist Received endless jokes about poor writing.

So is it really misogyny and racism ruining Star Wars?

Or is it weak writing, arrogant directors, and a CEO with a chip on her shoulders?

Now people talk about how weak the writing of The Last Jedi was,

and they are again accused of being racist and sexist.

We see a trend here.

It's not because of sexist and racist fans,

But a lack of quality.

This was a 100% original commentary piece by NDW host Mark Carras.

Will Lucifer Season 4 be all about sex and violence?

When Chloe arrived at the LUX penthouse to confront her partner in crimesolving about his flirtatious nature, “Lucifer came out naked,” co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich reminds.

And ideally, “We didn’t want to see anything crazy, but we wanted to see the ‘back’ of him,” she reports with a chuckle. “After all, everybody has a butt.”

In addition to possibly laying eyes on a demonic derriere, Henderson ventures, “Our blood can be a little more real, our horror can be a little more horror-y” on Netflix.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Movie May Skip Theaters.

The Boba Fett spinoff project is still being developed.

But Lucasfilm has doubts about standalone movies for Boba Fett, Lando, Darth Maul, and many others.

The doubt comes from the disappointing results of Solo A Star Wars Story.

However, as many of these projects were already in motion, it is now rumored that these might be made for the upcoming Disney streaming service.

Why Hodor Actor Didn't Like Ed Sheeran's Game Of Thrones Cameo.

Sheeran showed up in the Season 7 premiere as a Lannister solider, speaking to Arya Stark while sitting by a campfire with fellow soldiers.

Speaking to Huffington Post, Nairn revealed he isn't a fan of these celebrity cameos on the show, as he thinks they take viewers out of Game of Thrones' rich world.

“I’m not a fan of the cameos in Game of Thrones," Nairn said. "I don’t like them. I think it’s stupid. I don’t mind going on the record on that. I just think it takes you right out of the world. Especially Ed Sheeran. I was like, ‘Why is Ed Sheeran here?’"

Some are saying that director James Wan’s Lighter version of ‘Aquaman’ is a shocking change from the past.

Warner Bros. Is Cracking Down on Harry Potter Fan Events.

The news comes out of a report this weekend by the Associated Press, focusing on the recent de-Potterization of a Quidditch tournament/festival at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Organizers for the event were one of several recently contacted by Warner Bros. to be told that new guidelines for fan events meant that no names or terms from the Potter franchise could be used outside of an official capacity by Warner itself.

The events can still go on, but more as generically wizard-y gatherings rather than explicitly Harry Potter themed.

On a recent episode of Kevin Smith's Fatman on Batman podcast, Avengers: Infinity War screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely gave serious praise to an overlooked Marvel villain.

The Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing (or  more commonly known as MODOK)!

"I've wanted to put M.O.D.O.K. in, and it's very hard to go, 'Here's the supporting character: The giant head. And then we're gonna get on with the story. We just came to him for information.' You kinda gotta design the whole movie around the guy with the giant head. But I have love for M.O.D.O.K. and I also think, properly done, he'd be f**king terrifying."

Any Modok fans out there?

Disney raises its bid for Fox to $71 billion!

That's more than the $65 billion Comcast offered a week ago.

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' director Rian Johnson taunted a campaign to remake the movie.

A campaign has started online to remake "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," claiming that a group of producers will provide the budget.

An ever growing number of fans have voiced their disdain for the movie since its release in December.

Amazon might save Lucifer!

Last month Fox canceled the show Lucifer.

According to new Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, the streaming service has held conversations about potentially giving new life to Lucifer.

“We were talking about Lucifer,” Salke said. “I’m not sure where we are on that. I know that international, especially the UK group, was really bullish on that show, I haven’t checked in on that today (Thursday), but I heard conversations were ongoing on that yesterday.”

HBO’s Watchmen TV series has been filming in Macon, Georgia.

Sets haven’t exactly been a secret.

We’ve already seen some photographs of the alternate world the show is creating, which exists in the same superhero-filled and science fiction-tinged timeline we visited in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ rightfully iconic comic book miniseries.

A /Film reader who lives in Macon snapped some new photos of the re-dressed city.

What’s on display is especially interesting if you’re familiar with the source material.

These images should be considered potential spoilers, so consider this your one and only warning.

Stan Lee's Business Manager Arrested on Suspicion of Filing False Police Report.

The man Stan Lee recently said is the only person who represents him in any of his affairs was arrested Monday on suspicion of filing a false police report, the Los Angeles police department confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

Keya Morgan was arrested around 1 p.m. and taken in to custody by the LAPD's Hollywood Division.

His bail was set at $20,000.

He is due back in court July 2.

Police did not release the exact details of the arrest, but it may have something to do with a report earlier this month that Lee was allegedly confronted at his home by two gunmen who demanded money from the 95-year-old Marvel icon.

The beaver-specific scent that is in this craft bourbon is called castoreum.

It's in everything from natural foods to fruit flavorings to cigarettes.

The Food and Drug Administration lists castoreum as a "generally recognized as safe" food additive.

Tamworth Distilling and Mercantile's "Eau De Musc," which is a limited-release, is sold in a 200 milliliter bottle for $65.

George Lucas' Star Wars sequels would've been all about midi-chlorians?

Sure Disney has done a horrid job with the Star Wars franchise, but it sounds like George Lucas would have done even worse!

Essentially, he was planning to lean into the stuff that fans really hated about The Phantom Menace, specifically midi-chlorians and the “scientific” explanation for the Force.

Do you think this would be worse, as bad, or better?

‘Stranger Things’ Star Millie Bobby Brown Leaves Twitter After She Becomes Subject of Homophobic Meme.

The page went missing after multiple images of the actress were turned into anti-gay tweets, culminating in a meme that gained steam on the social media platform.

Brown, who is only 14, became the subject of a series of Photoshopped images depicting her as homophobic, as well as a hashtag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown, which first appeared in November and resurfaced in June — coinciding with the beginning of Pride Month.

Although we at Nerds Drink Whiskey believe this to be an extremely small group of people, and not true nerds, we believe that this toxic behavior shouldn't be tolerated.  

Again, these are not nerds, but trolls!

Chris Hemsworth says Avengers 4 is 'even more shocking' than Infinity War.

The fourth (and technically still untitled) Avengers movie is due out May 3, 2019.

“If you were shocked by [Infinity War], I think the second one is even more shocking, for other reasons entirely,” Hemsworth told Esquire in a new interview.

Patrick Stewart may be hinting at a role in CBS All Access' Star Trek: Discovery TV series, possibly as Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

The fan favorite captain of the USS Enterprise-D on Star Trek: The Next Generation hasn't been a part of the franchise since the final TNG film, Star Trek Nemesis, released in 2002.

After Nemesis flamed out at the box office, and Star Trek: Enterprise was unceremoniously canceled in 2005, the Star Trek franchise went into hibernation until J.J. Abrams launched his blockbuster reboot in 2009, starring Chris Pine as a younger Captain James T. Kirk.

However, Star Trek was completely absent from television until Star Trek: Discovery premiered in 2017.

Shadowhunters won’t return for a fourth season.

Based on the Mortal Instruments novels by Cassandra Clare, Shadowhunters starred Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, an aspiring artist who learns she’s a human-angel hybrid destined to help protect the New York City streets from all manner of creatures that go bump in the night.

Season to date, Shadowhunters is averaging barely 400,000 total weekly viewers, down sharply from Season 2 and ranking fifth ranking all current Freeform programs.

The supernatural drama will wrap things up in the spring of 2019 with a 12-episode run — aka Season 3B, titled Shadowhunters: The Final Hunt — that will include a two-hour series finale event.

Does anyone want a Jared Leto Joker standalone movie?

Jared Leto will reprise his “Suicide Squad” role as DC Comics supervillain the Joker in a standalone movie.

Variety said that Leto, 46, will both star in and serve as an executive producer of the untitled spinoff film for Warner Bros.

The trade magazine noted this will be separate from Todd Phillips’ upcoming Joker origin movie, part of a Warner Bros. division specializing in origin-story films and for which Joaquin Phoenix has been assigned to play the role.

Jack Daniel's and the impact of trade war!

The maker of Jack Daniel's says tariffs are making it difficult to plan for the future.

The company, Brown-Forman (BFA), reported strong revenue and profit growth for the fiscal year that ended in April, and expects to report more gains ahead.

But it said competition in the developed world, coupled with "potential retaliatory tariffs on American spirits" means that it's "difficult to accurately predict future results."

US bourbon is one of the products targeted by foreign governments in retaliation for the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the EU, Mexico and much of the rest of the world.

Curiosity Rover Finds Ancient 'Building Blocks for Life' on Mars.

NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has identified a variety of organic molecules, the carbon-based building blocks of life as we know it, in 3.5-billion-year-old Red Planet rocks, one of the papers reports.

"These results do not give us any evidence of life," stressed study lead author Jennifer Eigenbrode, a scientist at the Solar System Exploration Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

"But there is a possibility that [the organics] are from an ancient life source; we just don't know," Eigenbrode told Space.com. "And even if life was never around, they [the molecules] tell us there was at least something around for organisms to eat."

HBO has officially greenlit a follow-up pilot to its acclaimed international hit Game of Thrones and it sounds just as massively ambitious as the original series.

The network has ordered a prequel drama from writer Jane Goldman and author George R.R. Martin.

The network has released an official description of the show’s story line.

Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.

Since the eighth and final season of GoT is coming next year, the soonest we can see a successor series is 2020.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy stepping down this Fall?

The repercussions from The Last Jedi debacle continue it seems.

Rian Johnson created the most divisive Star Wars productions since Disney took over.

Solo did horrible at the box office.

And let's face it, The Force Awakens doesn't look as great as we first thought.

It seems the pressure is just too much and she will step down in September.

Do you think she's to blame?

‘Happytime Murders’ Creators Respond To ‘Sesame Street’ Lawsuit With Actual Puppet Lawyer.
His name is Fred, and he represents the puppet film “Happytime Murders.”
Sesame Workshop, the creators of Sesame Street, filed a lawsuit last week against the producers of the upcoming film “The Happytime Murders,” claiming trademark infringement over their tagline “No sesame. All street.”
“The Happytime Murders” is a raunchy R-rated movie produced by The Jim Henson Company that stars Melissa McCarthy. It is set in a world where humans and Sesame Street-style puppets coexist. 
The film’s creators, STX Entertainment, sent HuffPost a response to the lawsuit that they said was crafted by their puppet lawyer Fred, Esq. They included Fred’s photo as well.
“Happytime Murders” is released to theaters Aug. 17.

Who's to blame for Solo failure?
Solo only grossed $83 million over the Memorial Day weekend. 
“The Force Awakens” made over $2 billion, “Rogue One” raked in almost $1.1 billion, and “The Last Jedi” grossed $1.3 billion.
Yet fans who saw Solo are overwhelmingly positive. 
The Last Jedi has become the proverbial punching bag. 
Was the disappointing Solo box office merely backlash for mess that was The Last Jedi?
Does the blame fall at Rian Johnson's feet?
Will the Rian Johnson trilogy fail even more?

Are the re-boots as cursed as the Comics character created by James O’Barr?

Creative and financial differences was the reason given.

The Avenger That Can't Be Trusted To Keep A Secret.
Mark Ruffalo is “without a doubt” the worst at keeping secrets.
“But he’s also the person I probably love the most. He’s just the most — just one of the kindest people you’ll meet. And so, completely forgivable every time he gives away some plot point. He could get away with murder. Anyone else, it might be highly scrutinized and punished, but he’s beyond forgivable.”
Ruffalo famously let out a major Avengers: Infinity War spoiler last summer at D23 Expo when he went to say “half” of the characters in the then-upcoming crossover epic die, only to quickly correct himself and let slip “everybody dies.”

Suntory Hibiki 17 Whisky Discontinued!
Forbes reports that the Suntory Hibiki 17 will be discontinued as of September 2018.
From September 2018 the Hibiki 17 will gradually be removed from the core range, and production will stop.
The Hibiki 12 Year-Old was sadly discontinued in 2015
Due to several awards, both the price and demand for the Hibiki 21 has risen. 
We found the Suntory Hibiki 17 for $140, while the 21 was about $251.
We featured the Hibiki 17 on Nerds Drink Whiskey in July of 2016, and it has remained an all time favorite.
We mourn the loss of this great whisky. 
For Forbes (much more in depth) version of this story:

What we know about Bill And Ted Face The Music so far:
It's thankfully NOT a reboot!
The story is about them not writing the song that saves the world yet.
Bill's daughter Thea and Ted’s daughter Billie help them.
They now have a 24 hour deadline to write that song.
They try to steal the song from their future selves. 
They're middle aged, their wives (the princesses), are now working double shifts at Denny’s, and they're poor.
The humor is not cynical, snarky, or dark. So they still have a sense of innocence. 
The budget is not that big.
They still want to 'Party on dudes!'
They still want us to 'Be excellent to each other.'

Rock legend and icon Bob Dylan will launch his own series of three whiskeys. The band news? It's being done through Angel's Envy, the most boring whiskey we have ever reviewed on this show. Will Mr Dylan's whiskey be as bland and uneventful? Should he have stuck with his original brand name of "Bootleg whiskey" instead of his new name "Heaven’s Door Spirits?" Time will tell if the straight rye, straight bourbon, or the “double-barreled” whiskey will be as tasty as his music has.
