Will WATCHMEN On HBO Be Better Than the Movie?

If you thought Jessica Chobot was going to do Nerdist News Talks Back alone today, you were very, very wrong! Why would you think that? It’s the opposite of the point of the show. Join Managing Editor Alicia Lutes, Senior News Producer Jesse Gill, and Director of Development Brendon Shulze as they discuss Han Solo’s new lack of directors, Game of Thrones’ anything but chill trailer, Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen, and a robot that goes in your b-hole!

Yesterday the nerd world was shocked to learn that Han Solo directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller had left the project, with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy issuing a statement citing creative differences as the reason. Rumors of either Ron Howard or Joe Johnston taking over are circulating the internet, so what does this mean for Han Solo. Hopefully the movie won’t be affected too much, since most of it was already shot first.

It’s the first day of summer! You know what that means. Winter is…here? Game of Thronesmost recent trailer showcases dragons, sibling drama, and lots and lots of swords. With Danaerys on her way to Westeros and the White Walkers creeping ever closer, this season is sure to keep us glued to the screen every Sunday night.

In other HBO news, creator of The Leftovers Damon Lindelof is set to helm a new iteration of Watchmen. Maybe being on TV will allow the story to be fleshed out a bit more than in Zack Snyder’s film and not become such a polarizing adaptation.

If your dream as a child was to one day have a robot up your butt then well, you’re in luck! Wait no, drop that Voltron toy! The Colonoscopy Robot will make colonoscopies safer for all parties involved. You can even pretend it’s Voltron: The Legendary Spelunker.

Want to join us for a live discussion? Tune in tomorrow and every weekday at 1:00pm PST for another episode of Nerdist News Talks Back on YouTube and Alpha, and catch up with the archives immediately thereafter!
