NERD NEWS SHOW NOTES:
Ron Howard feels bad about Solo?
Director Ron Howard has been watching the tepid turnout for his “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” too.
On Twitter Howard responded to a woman on Twitter with " “As a director I feel badly when people who I believe (& exit polls show) will very likely enjoy a movie... don’t see it on a big screen w/great sound.”
“Solo” earned $176 million domestically in its first 17 days at the box office.

'Skyrim' for Amazon Alexa is real!
What was thought to be a joke, turns out to be legit.
The game seems to play like a classic MUD, but with voice commands.
You can play by tapping Alexa's circular icon on any Amazon-installed device and saying, "Alexa, open 'Skyrim.'" You can also go to the product page and enable it on your devices.
Apple banned cryptocurrency mining!
Apple is worried about the battery drain from background cryptocurrency mining.

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.

Beaver Butt Whiskey Anyone?

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.

Again, these are not nerds, but trolls!
