GAME OF THRONES Star Rejects That Sansa Pregnancy Fan Theory

Since this season of Game of Thrones has, in many storylines, moved past the events of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels, an insane number of fan theories have popped up online and gained traction as some fans desperately grasp to figure out future plot points. One of these was a theory about how when Ramsay Bolton raped Sansa last season, he impregnated her and she's been carrying his child within her ever since.

Devotees of this theory have pointed to several things as "proof" that they're correct: lines in earlier episodes about how Sansa can still feel what Ramsay did to her, Sansa sewing herself a new dress, Sansa not eating the food at Castle Black, etc. And in last week's "Battle of The Bastards," Ramsay uttered a line that those fans latched onto as the latest example of a hint of proof: "You can’t kill me, I’m part of you now." Now, thankfully, one of the show's actors — Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos Seaworth — has spoken out and rejected this theory in an interview with The Huffington Post:

“Unless [Ramsay's] got one of those ‘Game of Thrones’ pregnancy sticks, he’s not gonna know,” said Cunningham. “I think, I would imagine, it’s open to whatever you want it to be, but I think he’s saying he’s put himself into her head. That’s what I took from it. She’s never gonna get rid of him because of what he’s done to her. He knows what he’s done to her. It was off camera, what he was doing to her, but we all know what it was. But I think he’s placed himself in her soul for all the wrong reasons.”

Over at Vanity Fair, Joanna Robinson has an excellent breakdown of why this theory doesn't hold any water:

Let’s apply a little logic: at the end of Season 5, Sansa took a huge tumble from the walls of Winterfell, then plunged her traumatized body into an icy Northern river. Let’s say a fetus did survive that. Even accounting for the sped-up travel time on the show, it’s now been months since Theon left her side. (It takes a long time to travel from Winterfell to the Iron Islands to Volantis to Meereen. Here’s a map; see for yourself.) Even if she’s a late shower, after all this time, she would certainly know if she were pregnant. And, given Sansa’s boiling hatred for Ramsay, I’m pretty sure she would have availed herself of the Westerosi version of the morning-after pill: Moon Tea.

Sounds like this is one fan theory that can finally be put to bed. What are your favorite/most ridiculous fan theories about Game of Thrones this season?

BROOM-HILDA Rights Purchased For Big Screen Adaptation

What can I say? This is like reporting that Ziggy is getting his own movie. It's not often that comic strip characters transition to the big screen, and even more rare for one as obscure as overweight alcoholic witch Broom-Hilda. Granted, a lot of cities do still run the comic strip, but I don't believe it has nearly the reach of Garfield or Marmaduke. Still, Deadline reports the rights to the character have been purchased by producers Gilbert Adler and Jason A. Rosenberg, who are hoping to kickstart a film franchise.

Adler is the same guy who was behind the successful run of Tales From The Crypt on HBO and has produced films like Tales From The Crypt on HBO and has produced films like Superman Returns and Constantine. In regards to the film he wishes to make, Adler had this to say:

When you look at the comic strip, it looks like maybe it’s for a young audience, but we look at it differently. This is about a witch who has varying powers, but has a problem with weight. And if you look around, doesn’t everyone? And we thought, well that’s it.

Adler went on to say he'd like to create a film that's both for a wide audience as well as heartwarming. For whatever reason, I can't stop picturing Melissa McCarthy dressed as a witch.

I'll be honest, I had to look Broom-Hilda up as it's been a good while since I've read the Sunday comics. I found this cartoon, which seems a little raunchy for its time, but it has its moments. Check it out below.

KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES Trailer: Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot Kick Ass as a Spy Couple

The idea of seeing Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot teaming up as a pair of spies sounds pretty damn intriguing to me...but add Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher as their goofy neighbors who are trying to figure out their secrets, and it suddenly becomes a different movie entirely. Instead of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Superbad director Greg Mottola's new comedy Keeping Up With The Joneses looks like something more along the lines of the Tina Fey/Steve Carell movie Date Night.

Motolla is a solid director with a nice resume, and I'm guessing he didn't have any problem pulling some excellent comedic moments out of this talented cast. We'll see how it all comes together when the movie hits theaters on October 21, but in the meantime, check out the trailer and let us know what you think in the comments.

JEEPERS CREEPERS May Be Based On An Episode of UNSOLVED MYSTERIES

Thanks to this video by Marko Polo, I may have trouble sleeping tonight. Turns out there is strong evidence to support the idea that the movie Jeepers Creepers was based on a true murder that happened in Michigan in 1991. If you believe the video, the film is based on the story of Dennis Depue, who murdered his wife Mary and then fled the state. The event was covered by Unsolved Mysteries and Depue was caught the night the episode aired after his girlfriend and friends reported him to authorities. Depue ended up committing suicide in his car after the pursuit came to a halt.

What makes the stories similar is the way the killers were discovered, which involves investigating an abandoned building. Why the hell anyone would do that in real life is beyond me, but I guess it had a happy ending in Depue getting caught so all's well that ends well. Thanks to Bloody Disgusting for giving me nightmares!

Character Names and More Details Leak For Syfy Show KRYPTON

We have more information for you regarding Syfy's Superman prequel Krypton via TV Line. We already knew the series would be starring Seg-El, who is the father of Jor-El and the grandfather of Superman. Today we learned that Superman's great-grandfather Ter-El and his great-great-grandfather Val-El will also be in the show. Val-El apparently alludes death by escaping into the Phantom Zone, so that's interesting...

Other characters of note show that the House of Zod will be present, with the character Alura Zod making an appearance. We also learn that Dev-Em will be in the show. For those not familiar, Dev-Em becomes the rival to Superboy and eventually transitions into a good guy in the 30th century on Earth.

I'm really curious as to how this show will turn out! Right now I'm hoping I'll be pleasantly surprised, but it seems like a tall order for Syfy to fill. Then again, they surprised me earlier this year with The Expanse, so I do have some hope reserved for the series.

More ROGUE ONE Character Details Revealed

Following EW's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story cover from earlier this morning, the outlet has released some new character details about the people who will appear in the new prequel film. Some of this information leaked about a month ago, but this report provides confirmation and even more specifics about the characters we'll see in the new movie. Let's break it down, shall we?

First up is Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones). She's described as having a knowledge of the galactic underworld that the Rebel Alliance is desperate to utilize. 

“She’s got a checkered past,” says Lucasfilm president and Rogue One producer Kathleen Kennedy. “She has been detained [by the Rebellion] and is being given an opportunity to be useful. And by being useful, it may commute her sentence… She’s a real survivor. She becomes a kind of Joan of Arc in the story.”

Next is Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna). He's an intelligence officer meant to counteract Erso's explosive nature, and he's seen plenty of action on the battlefield. He's described as "committed, steady, and practical."

“He conveys a fair amount of experience and the reality of what it’s like to do this every day, to try to figure out how to resist the Empire effectively and intelligently,” says Kiri Hart, Lucasfilm’s chief of story development. “It’s not easy.”

Then we have Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen). Pronounced "chi-RUT," the character isn't a Jedi but he subscribes to their belief system and "has used his spirituality to overcome his blindness and become a formidable warrior."

“Chirrut falls into the category of being a warrior monk,” says Kennedy. “He very much still believes in everything the Jedi were about.” He maintains that belief even though the Jedi are no longer there to protect the galaxy. As director Gareth Edwards puts it: "This idea that magical beings are going to come and save us is going away, and it’s up to normal, everyday people to take a stand to stop evil from dominating the world.”

Chirrut's buddy is Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen). What a perfect Star Wars character name, huh? He's loaded up with armor and his relationship to Chirrut is likened to that of Sancho Panza to Don Quixote.

“He understands Chirrut’s spiritual centeredness, but he doesn’t necessarily support it,” Kennedy says. Baze goes along with this Force business because “it’s what his friend deeply believes,” she adds.

Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed) is the Rebel squad's lead pilot, who has a short-tempered but some mad aerial skills.

“He flies a lot of cargo, one of his key jobs,” Kennedy says. “And he tends to be a little tense, a little volatile, but everybody in the group really relies on his technical skills.”

K-2SO is a tough, no-nonsense droid seeking redemption for his past mistakes, played in motion capture by Alan Tudyk. Edwards refers to him as "the antithesis of C-3PO."

“Kaytoo is a little bit like Chewbacca's personality in a droid’s body,” Edwards says. “He doesn’t give a s--- about what you think. He doesn't fully check himself before he says things and does things. He just speaks the truth.”

Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) is Jyn's estranged father, a scientist compared to nuclear icon Robert Oppenheimer who has information both the Empire and the Rebellion want.

In addition to the already-confirmed appearance of Darth Vader, the Empire will be led by Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn), an intelligent, effective villain attempting to gain power through political intrigue. His main intention is to "use his squad of Deathtroopers to pulverize the Rebel uprising and ascend into the Emperor’s graces – while hopefully avoiding the wrath of his enforcer, Darth Vader."

Forest Whitaker's character is being kept under wraps until later today, but the outlet hints that Star Wars completists will recognize his past immediately when we find out his name. Stay tuned for more on this later this afternoon.

Also worth noting here: in a big interview with THR, Disney CEO Bob Iger commented about the Rogue One reshoots:

I've seen Rogue One. I've seen not only an edited picture but I've seen significantly more footage than was even in that picture. That's actually going to be a fine film.

While I certainly didn't expect him to say anything approaching, "That movie is in serious trouble," some fans may read into him describing the movie as "fine" as opposed to a more exciting adjective. Take from all of this what you will, but despite the rumors, I'm very excited about this film.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16, 2016.

INDIANA JONES 5 Will Not Be The Last Film in The Franchise

Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford are currently in the process of developing a fifth Indiana Jones film for Lucasfilm and Disney. I couldn't be more excited to see Jones back in action and embarking on another adventure. As we all suspected, Indiana Jones 5 won't be the last film to be made in the franchise! Disney is planning on keeping it alive for years to come. During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Disney Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger talked about the Indiana Jones franchise and explained that part five just won't be a one-off: 

“Not like Star Wars, but we hope… right now, we’re focused on a reboot, or a continuum and then a reboot of some sort. Well, we’ll bring him back, then we have to figure out what comes next. That’s what I mean. It’s not really a reboot, it’s a boot — a reboot. I don’t know. We [got] Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in the film. But then what’s the direction? I’ve had discussions about what the direction is, [but] I don’t want to get into it. I don’t think it reaches the scale of the universe of Star Wars, but I see making more. It won’t be just a one-off.”

There's a lot of cryptic wording in that statement. But if Disney is looking to push the Indiana Jones franchise further, it could include multiple sequels that follow the original saga as well as a universe expansion of prequels and spin-offs that could involve other characters. I think it would be cool to see a Henry Jones Sr. spin-off film that follows the adventures of Indy's dad, who was previously played by Sean Connery. I guess another thing that could happen is that introduce a new character that can take on the mantle of Indiana Jones in future films.

Spielberg recently talked about the character, explaining that he didn't plan on killing him off: 

“I think this one is straight down the pike for the fans. The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison [Ford] at the end of it.”

I guess there's a reason for that. Disney and Lucasfilm may want him to come back for some more adventures, but it's yet to be seen how many adventures that will be. I'm curious to find out what exactly Disney is planning to do with the franchise. One thing is for sure, and that's that Ford is excited to jump back into the role. In a previous interview, he said:

“The opportunity to work with Steven again on this character which has brought pleasure to so many… Not to mention me. It’s fun, it’s great fun to play this character. It’s great fun to work with Steven, I’m looking forward to it.” 

Are you excited about the possibility of Indiana Jones being blown up into a big franchise with multiple films? Or are you happy with the slow rate of producing sequels? With Disney and Lucasfilm leading the charge, it makes sense that they would want to pump this adventure franchise up. As long as they don't bring back his kid, Mutt, I'm good. 

Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will be back to produce Indiana Jones 5 and writer David Koepp (Jurassic Park, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) is on board to write the script. The movie is set for a July 19, 2019 release date.
