Take a Virtual Tour of Disney’s Star Wars Theme Park, Galaxy’s Edge

They already unveiled the massive model of the Star Wars Land coming soon to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, but today at Disney’s D23 convention, the Mouse House gave even more details about this expansion, coming some time in 2019. Most importantly, they gave the thing a name: Henceforth, it is officially called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. (The name covers both the Disneyland and Disney World versions.) You will be forgiven if you continue to call it Star Wars Land.

Get Ready Pitches, Here Comes the ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ Poster

Pitch Perfect has become of the unlikeliest (and therefore more welcome) Hollywood franchises in recent years. The series combines the college hijinks of something like Animal House with the competition of an underdog sports movie like The Bad News Bears, and throws in just a dash of Christopher Guest comedy. The first movie was a particular delight, and while the second film didn’t quite recapture the magic, I’m hoping the third film, Pitch Perfect 3, will wrap up the series with style.

Get Ready for a New Spin on Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Movies

It’s happened to all of us. You’re watching the movie, and you’re into it, and then... a character makes a catastrophic mistake. They run upstairs when they should go out the front door. They bring the Transformer back to life rather than leaving it in a dump where they found it. They break quarantine when they’ve been screaming for the last 20 minutes how now matter what happens, they can’t let the virus escape. And you sit there, squirming in your seat, because there’s nothing you can do about it.

Watch the Bat-Signal Light Up Los Angeles in Tribute to Adam West

In the most fitting tribute imaginable, the Bat-Signal lit up the skies of Los Angeles last night, in honor of the late Adam West, the first Batman of television, and one of the most beloved versions of the iconic Dark Knight (or the “Bright Knight,” as West liked to describe his more upbeat version of the character). West died of leukemia late last week; he was 88 years old.

‘The Conjuring’ Franchise to Spin Off Into ‘The Crooked Man’

When the history of this era’s horror movies is written, James Wan deserves his own chapter. Wan has had an enormous influence on the genre for the last decade, as one of the creators of the Saw, Insidious, and Conjuring series. Though he’s branched out his directorial pursuits (he made the tremendous Furious 7 and is now hard at work under the sea on Aquaman), he’s also lending a creative hand on the ongoing universification of The Conjuring, which now has now less than three parallel spinoff series in various stages of production at Warner Bros.

Remembering Adam West, the First Best Batman

My 18-month-old daughter is suddenly very into superheroes. Every night before bed we do story time; this week she’s become obsessed with a board book called My First Batman Book. Since she likes when I sing the words of her books to her, I naturally began singing the theme to the classic 1960s Batman as part of our nightly ritual. And she liked that so much that this morning, for the very first time, I showed her the old show’s opening credits.
