16 Celebrities Who Lied About Their Age

The entertainment business can be pretty cruel to all those folks in front of the camera.

Hollywood loves to put a shelf life on their on-screen stars, and for the few that stay on top despite the years, all sorts …

What Happens Between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens?

When George Lucas returned to making Star Wars movies, he chose to go back in time to tell the story of Anakin Skywalker before the events of the original trilogy, but that didn’t mean fans were deprived of further adventures of Han, Leia, Luke, and other Star Wars favorites from the original trilogy. The former Expanded Universe stretched several decades beyond the Battle of Endor, telling the story of the classic heroes, their children, and even a number of brand new characters not featured in the movies.

While George Lucas himself never actually considered the Expanded Universe as canon, that stance was made …

8 Couples Who Broke Up And Kept Working Together (And 7 That Didn’t)

Sometimes these actors just need to put on a brave face, finish a project together and smile for the camera.

16 Things About X-Men Movies That Make NO Sense

The incredibly successful X-Men movie franchise has had its ups and downs, but overall, it has remained a staple in pop culture that gave us wonderful cinematic moments, unforgettable superhero performances, and a lot of X-Men stories for us to chew on. With the news that Disney will buy Fox and get Marvel Studios the cinematic rights to properties such as X-Men and Deadpool, we can only guess where this franchise will go.

Talk Show Host Spoils Star Wars: The Last Jedi Live on TV

Warning, this article – as well as the included video – spoils a major plot development in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

With the latest chapter in Lucasfilm’s space opera saga set to hit theaters tonight, the cast has been deployed to just about every show out there, as part of Disney’s massive promotional push for the sequel. While one could argue that Star Wars doesn’t even need promotion at this point, Disney and Lucasfilm obviously won’t take any chances. In this case though, they’re likely to have wished this particular show got skipped.
