It’s been six years since Angels and Demons, Ron Howard’s sequel to The Da Vinci Code, the mystery thriller based on Dan Brown’s best-selling novel. You might want to grab your parents for this one, because we have our first look at Inferno, the third film in the series featuring dad-hero Tom Hanks reprising his role as Robert Langdon along with a few new faces.
Liam Neeson is exchanging his leather jacket and kidnap rescue mission for his next film, in which he plays a gravelly-voiced CG tree monster. You don’t get to see too much of him in the first trailer for A Monster Calls, but you can hear his Tom Waits impression as he narrates with the story of an invisible monster who doesn’t want to be invisible and alone anymore. It’s like The Iron Giant, but with a tree creature.
Fan theories have become more prevalent in recent years — some fans basically refuse to accept an existing narrative as is, and reach (like, really reach) to read into something that isn’t there.

And now a handful of fans have cooked up a new, half-baked theory about Star Wars: Rogue One, a film that won’t even hit theaters until next December.

Not much is known about Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars anthology film Rogue One — it currently stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker and Diego Luna, and Ben Mendelsohn is most likely playing the villain (although the actor maintains he’s still unsure if he’s in it). We’ve also heard that bounty hunters are involved, and the latest rumor about Felicity Jones’ role in the film definitely supports that…if it’s true.

In more self-indulgent moments, I Google myself and find there are many Matt Singers in the world. There’s a folk singer, a fashion designer, a liberal blogger, and a former Canadian professional football player for the Manitoba Bisons. Though I’ve never met any of these men, their mere existence infuriates me. Who the hell are these jerks trying to steal my name? How can they be Matt Singer? I’m Matt Singer.
