That "interview" was with a Reylo nutcase who won a charity auction. I don't think you know how much of Hollywood vernacular is blowing smoke about projects that will never, ever happen.

"Reylo nutcase"? gently caress off with that sort of sexism, thanks.

A Death on the Nile/Knives Out sequel double bill would get me back in the cinema again.

I'm curious if the basic format of the sequels will be the same as the first film--Blanc gets anonymously called in on a mysterious death--and it'll just be new actors and a new situation....or if we'll get a bigger plot departure/new structure. Johnson loves to play with genre conventions and expectations, and since he's never done a sequel to his own work before, I don't know where this one is gonna go

Filming in Greece gives the next film a distinctly Agatha Christieís Poirot kind of feel. So I hope they get the same sort of thing where every actor under the sun is clamouring to be in it.

The living cast of The Last Jedi does a Greece-set Agatha Christie-style with Daniel Craig still doing his Foghorn Leghorn accent.

I'm pretty certain that $150 million isn't needed to make a Knives Out sequel but I guess now they can go out and cast like, Tom Cruise or whoever they want to hire for ridiculous money.

No itís not. Thereís shippers of all walks of life. Some ships are dumb. You can make fun of it.

Reylo is a dumb ship, because itís out of character for both and it made an already dumb movie even dumber.

Even if Johnson gives himself $50 million per film, that's still leaves $100 million per film for production costs which is more than double the budget of the first one.

It's literally the central relationship of the entire trilogy. How is it "out of character" when that's a core facet of BOTH characters' arcs over every single movie they're in? Reylo paying off in TRoS is one of the few good decisions that film made, even if it's undone 12 seconds later by killing off Ben for no reason

Though I do appreciate that the "Reylos" got a payoff and a fuckoff at the same time when Ben/Kylo kissed Rey and then immediately died. In the theater I watch it in, there was laughter at that moment.

First was Trevorrow, when he was let go, they kicked around the idea of asking Johnson to come back, but he was working on Knives Out and the word from the Disney side of things was "no delays", so they went with Abrams since he was available to take over immediately

I donít even understand what these words mean? Is it that because itís a movie nothing that happens means anything so you canít question it? He is a very bad dude in the context of the movie and wanting Rey to gently caress him anyway because he feels bad at the end isnít doing a feminism.

Literally Ben's ENTIRE character arc is about how conflicted he is and how he is dealing with feelings of neglect and abandonment and legacy....not to mention the abuse by Snoke. And, critically, Rey in interested in, and wants to help. Ben--but she's not gonna get involved until he fixes himself. "I wanted to take your hand. Ben's hand", as in Not Kylo Ren. As in, I'm not gonna take you in and try to fix you, you gotta do that yourself.

in the span of like three days Kylo:

-kidnapped rey and strapped her to a torture chair
-killed her newfound father figure
-grievously injured her friend
-tried to kill her
-nearly killed her newfound mother figure
-invaded her dreams
-refused to stop actively killing her friends
-forced her new mentor to sacrifice himself so the handful of friends she had left could escape (from him)

like really when you lay it all out it's kinda mystifying as to why she'd want him anything but dead
