What I Learned This Week .. April 28, 2017

Another week has come and gone my good friends. Here is what I found interesting about it, and would like to share with you.

(1) Hot off the success of the latest film in the franchise, "The Fate of the Furious" co-stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are getting a spin-off. Yippe-ki-yay.

(2) Everyone puts together a list of their favorite (or just basic) list of big wide release movies coming out over the summer. But, the folks over at /Film published a list of Indie movies. Check it out and see if any of these might interest you in addition to, or instead of, a popcorn film.
(3) What do you get when you combine "Dr. Who" with "Mr. Men?" Oh, something quite clever I'm sure.
(4) Space is just cool! Well, stuff like this is cool. The alien menace that waits for us outside of the galaxy that will one day reveal themselves and take over our planet is not cool. But, then Doctor Who shows up and saves the day and that is also cool. Anyway, as I was saying, this is cool!
(5) It's been 7 years since the last "Chronicles of Narnia" movie came out, but there is finally light at the end of the tunnel for those of us who are fans of this series.

(6) I've been a fan of the Marvel movies since they started what they call "Phase 1" with "Iron Man" in 2008. This article over on Collider gives us a small, if not cryptic, look into what the head honcho is thinking about the future of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
