Let’s See What Hints We Can Find in These 28 Screenshots from the ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Trailer (Photos)
“Game of Thrones” Season 7 is just a few short weeks away. In HBO’s first major trailer for the season, we’ve gotten a ton of glimpses at what to expect — starting with a full-scale war with the Lannisters taking on the rest of Westeros. We’ve poured through the rest of the trailer to see what hints can be gleaned. Cersei (Lena Headey) went darker than she ever has before at the end of Season 6, and she’s clearly taking her battle queen approach even further this season. The opening image of the trailer: a shadowy Cersei preparing for war. »

‘Twin Peaks’: Former Series Star Joan Chen Pitches Her Character’s Wild Return to David Lynch
David Lynch’s wildly anticipated “Twin Peaks” revival is kitted out with plenty of talented faces — over 200, both old and new — but there’s still a handful of original stars who were not tapped to return for the Showtime series. One of them is Joan Chen, who played Josie Packard during the show’s original run (and, incidentally, was the very first face to appear in the series’ very first episode, way back in 1990).
Chen, however, is eager to change that, and The Hollywood Reporter shares a compelling — and kind of wild — letter from the actress that she sent to Lynch, asking for her role to be reprised. Given that Chen’s character ended her “Twin Peaks” run as a drawer knob, it’s obviously written from a unique perspective.

John Boyega Says Finn Will Have a “Massive Adventure” in “The Last Jedi”
We don’t have a ton of detail into the plot of Star Wars: The Last Jedi yet but obviously there’s plenty of speculation. One thing we do know is that Luke Skywalker will be a central character and we can expect to see a ton of Mark Hamill. We’re pretty sure he’ll be “mentoring” in some kind of way in the film. Other than that it’s really mostly fan theories that are going around. However, recently John Boyega who plays Finn revealed something about his character.
