With The Last Jedi on 700 fewer screens this weekend (under 1800 in total), and with weekend box office numbers projected at about $4 million, we're reaching the point where we can just about finalize The Last Jedi's performance in comparison to the top movies all time, domestic and global. I'm running down those rankings here, and revisiting (one last time) the reasons for why The Last Jedi performed the way it did at the box office (and which was pretty darn good overall). Punch it!

With the decisions Rian Johnson made for The Last Jedi and the fates of its characters and major galactic powers (or lack thereof, as the case may be), he's potentially created a deja vu situation. For Episode IX, J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio may have no choice but to echo the events of Star Wars: A New Hope all over again (and in brand-new ways) to close out the Sequel "Trilogy." Punch it!

Fresh off their successful Rogue One Limited Edition Nissan Rogue, the folks at Nissan USA raised their game in creating customized accessory packages in honor of their partnership with Lucasfilm and in celebration of the release of The Last Jedi. To find out what went into the making of the new Limited Edition vehicles - just 3,000 in all! - I talked with Jeremy Meadows, a life-long Star Wars fan and the Senior Manager for Strategy and Integration with Nissan. Punch it!

On first blush, the Sequel Trilogy is about Rey, Finn, and Poe, as the new generation of heroes. But when you expand your viewpoint to include the Prequel and Original Trilogies, and you consider that these movies make up the "Skywalker Saga," and you factor in what we now know (or think we know) about Rey's parents, it starts to make you wonder who the main character of The Last Jedi really is. Punch it!

Writer/director Rian Johnson has said they made sure that, even though this is the "darker" movie of the trilogy, there would be lots of humor in it as well. One of the things Star Wars does best is physical comedy, and so I'm taking the time on today's podcast to compare it to other Star Wars movies on slapstick terms. Is it one of the best? And how does it hold up against its fellow middle-of-the-trilogy movies, Attack of the Clones and The Empire Strikes Back? Punch it!

Now that we've studied the Legends of Luke Skywalker, what do we *really* know about him and his life in between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens? What have we been told - via one specific character's narrative - that might be totally incorrect? And if that's the case, how would a set of incorrect assumptions flip the story of Luke and Ben Solo on its ear? Punch it!

A new update to Star Tours rolled out at Disney Parks over the weekend, and it included a trip to the Graveyard of Giants on Jakku, the battle between the Resistance and the First Order on Crait, and a final arrival on Batuu, the planet we'll all visit when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens at Disney Parks in 2019. More details about Batuu in the podcast today... Punch it!

Reveals about Canto Bight and its denizens have come to light recently, and I'm rounding up those news stories for you in today's podcast! It's not anything from spoiler social media folks - in fact, I've reached the point where I'm pretty much "spoiler averse." News from official sources? Fine. Outside of that? Not so much. Punch it!

Kylo Ren may be the obvious answer, but there are others to consider: Vader, Palpatine, Snoke, even Rey herself as a little girl. Whose "raw strength" do Star Wars fans think Luke is talking about? And what is it about "raw strength" that scares Luke, anyway? Punch it!

We got the international trailer we were looking for! Unfortunately, it didn't give much of anything away that was new or exciting. A couple new shots of characters and three words of dialogue, and that's about it. Meanwhile, the new 45-second commercial "Awake" is a lot more satisfying in terms of new sights to behold. Punch it!

For your Friday enjoyment, an extended conversation about The Last Jedi trailer courtesy of an interview I got to do for Viewpoints, a syndication radio show from north of the border (that would be Canada, folks). Plus, what's the scoop on the new photo Laura Dern shared from The Last Jedi on The Ellen Show? Punch it!

Thanks to a new IMAX display for The Lsat Jedi, folks are stirring up trouble in fandomland. Why? Because Luke is pictured on both sides of the display, one dedicated to the Light Side characters, and the other dedicated to the Dark Side characters. But what does it MEAN? That, and a the meat of a recent Andy Serkis interview, on today's podcast. Punch it!

Star Wars has always been political, whether by drawing inspiration from real-world politics to dealing with its own internal politics. Today, I'm looking back in brief at some of the political elements of previous Star Wars movies, and speculating as to how much politics will be a factor in The Last Jedi. Punch it!

Lucasfilm did something it's never done before - brought a major exhibit to New York Comic-Con. Costumes and props from The Last Jedi were on display at NYCC, and we learned more intriguing details about the Elite Praetorian Guards than anything else. But there were also some interesting tidbits about Kylo Ren, Resistance bombers, and even something about Finn that's really more about what Lucasfilm *didn't* tell us. Punch it!

Inspired by BB-8 on the Run - which, when you consider it, you discover that Tuanal can't have been too far away from Rey's AT-AT home - and by the fact that every important abandoned child in Star Wars has had someone benevolent and nearby to help with their upbringing. So, the question is, who was that for Rey? I put out a poll, and the results may shock you. Plus, an overseas movie chain may have revealed the runtime of The Last Jedi. Punch it!

Rian Johnson and Mark Hamill have been two of the loudest proponents of keeping the runup to The Last Jedi as spoiler-free as possible. So of course they would be the two folks picked to be primarily interviewed for the traditional Empire Magazine (three years in a row is a tradition, right?) cover story on the coming Star Wars movie. But there are a couple of surprises in the article, to be sure - including at least one item which confirms a leak that had been kicking around the internet for a while. Plus, on a side note, I think I've realized who the Knights of Ren really are. Punch it!

In the Sphero app (for controlling the BB-8, R2-D2, and BB-9E droids), there's a whole series of datascreens that reveal information about Supreme Leader Snoke's flagship, "Supremacy." I'm digging into those reveals today, and connecting them to what's depicted on the BB-8 mega-playset that opens up to reveal a First Order facility. (There's a throne room for Supreme Leader Snoke, more locations within the space, and depicted appearances by Rose, Finn, and Rey.) Punch it!

Turns out the similarities in the promotional timeframes from Rogue One weren't as easy to apply as a template to The Last Jedi. With yet another Force Friday promo partner announced yesterday, all the momentum is clearly on driving awareness for the event, and not for the movie directly - which is what a trailer would be for. So, what's different this time around? And what can we expect for the rest of the year? Punch it!

The "Find the Force" character scavenger hunt app within the official Star Wars app promises to let you unlock (and do photo/video AR stuff with) 15 characters from The Last Jedi. We've been promised new characters, and they've fulfilled it by having the Porgs as their early unlock preview. (Yes, I know - not exactly a "character," from a certain point of view.) And Admiral Ackbar has also been confirmed. Who else will we meet, and what might we learn about them? Punch it!

Whereas the original Star Wars had 31 wipe transitions, Empire had 42, and The Force Awakens only had 14, The Last Jedi is bringing up the rear with 12 wipe transitions, according to writer/director Rian Johnson. What does that mean for the structure of the movie? What could that tell us about the opening sequences? And does it mean that we won't see Luke and Rey at the very beginning of The Last Jedi? I've got the answers to those questions right here. Punch it!

Look, Snoke is Snoke. So let's start there. We've been given an idea of where he comes from, and who in the known Star Wars galaxy seems to have discovered his existence first. Beyond that, the whole existence of the First Order and its origins suggests a couple of options about Snoke's own origins, and how he hooked up with the First Order.

Yesterday, I talked with you about the First Order's AT-M6 "gorilla" walker revealed on the Star Wars Show, and today I'm going over the details of the Dreadnought - that's the giant 7.7 kilometer/4.5 mile long First Order ship packing two massive orbital auto cannons. Lucasfilm design supervisor Kevin Jenkins reveals that it was designed for a particular sequence, and I've got some thoughts about what that might be... Punch it!

On the Star Wars Show on Wednesday, two new vehicles from The Last Jedi were revealed! I'm talking about one of them today, the AT-M6 - that would be the All Terrain MegaCaliber Six for those of you interested in such things. The reveal, and the related interview with Lucasfilm design supervisor Kevin Jenkins, has implications for everything from ways to combat it in specific, to design decisions for the Sequel Trilogy in general, and more. Punch it!

Earlier this year, I theorized that one of the biggest challenges Luke would have in The Last Jedi is coming to terms with the guilt of what happened with Ben Solo and the destruction of the fledgling Jedi Academy. In the fall 2017 Movie Preview cover story on The Last Jedi in Entertainment Weekly, Rian Johnson and Mark Hamill give interviews which suggest I was pretty on the money with this one. Punch it!

Rian Johnson notes that, structurally, J.J. Abrams essentially handed Johnson a situation that already had a number of structural parallels to The Empire Strikes Back. So Johnson set about making it different. Here's a look at some of the similarities we've seen so far, along with some of the more noticeable differences. Punch it!

On today's podcast, I'm reviewing the reveals; piecing together a theory based on those reveals and what we learned from the D23 Expo; and considering the possibility that he's a character we've met previously in the new Star Wars canon - specifically, in the Aftermath novels.
