Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has hit theatres and nearly his $300 million for its worldwide opening box office gross. Not bad for the first Star Wars spin-off of the Disney era. (Let’s pretend that the Clone Wars animated movie never happened and move on.) While there is a wide range of opinions about the film, it does show that there is a market for more Star Wars outside the Skywalker family saga. So where to next? Maybe this Star Wars travel guide can help us find some interesting places to focus future A Star Wars Stories on.
If there’s one way to create jobs, it’s through massive construction projects. Sure, the Imperial government spent scads of money to create those jobs but that might be nothing compared to the long-term costs of operating a Death Star. Maybe the Rebels were in cahoots with the Imperials to help them create construction jobs because X-Wings can’t melt main reactors. Anyway, with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story coming out today, here’s a look at the cost of running the Death Star.
I don’t know if you noticed but the first Star Wars anthology movie is coming out this week. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is hitting theatres on Thursday (or Friday depending on your location) and it’s a new telling of how the Rebels obtained the Death Star’s plans. But there’s more to the Death Star than a superlaser capable of exploding a planet nearly instantly. To find out more about the Death Star, we have this handy infographic for you.
Last week, we asked if you could survive in the Marvel universe but how many superheroes and perspective superheroes are concerned about that? After all, most superheroes will sacrifice everything for the greater good and blahdy, blahdy, blah. What many superheroes, including but not limited to the likes of Iron Man/Tony Stark and The Doctor (yes, the one from the BBC TV series), are more concerned about is their look. So just how have various heroes changed their looks over the years? This handy infographic will give you a little guide.
It seems like we’re hearing about more Marvel movies every other week and new Marvel movies feel like they’re coming out every other month. This month, it’s Doctor Strange which isn’t a high-profile Marvel property but they’ve managed to create a critical and commercial smash hit. So just how would you or I fare in the rather extensive Marvel universe. Well, there’s a handy flowchart infographic to help you find out.
Since I think we all need a little time to recover from the bullshit and the politics
in the back of the last 18 months, let’s give you something else to take your mind off of life. I post a lot about great wrestling podcasts but a lot of them are built around the basis that you’re already a fan. What if you’re a new fan or want to become a fan? That’s where How2Wrestling comes in. Hosted by Kefin Mahon, host of The Attitude Era Podcast, and Jo Graham, Kefin’s girlfriend and new wrestling fan, How2Wrestling teaches you how to get into wrestling, how to understand wresting and how to enjoy wrestling.
So to give you something fun to listen to and to take your mind off the fate of the world, let’s listen to five of the best and my favourite episodes of How2Wrestling.
Who would have thought that comedians getting coffee and driving around in cars would be such a hit? Then again, any show starring Jerry Seinfeld, a bunch of high-profile friends (including President Obama) and classic cars. It’s basically Top Gear without the lunatics destroying tires, clutches and the environment.
Over the course of eight seasons and 53 episodes, there have been 56 cars featured on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Just what has Seinfeld to say about the classic cars on his show? Our friends at Instamotor compiled the information for our perusal in a handy infographic.
