Talking STAR WARS Romance, That SPIDER-MAN Poster, and Plinko!

Talking STAR WARS Romance, That SPIDER-MAN Poster, and Plinko!

For all its explosions, its lightsaber fights, its jumps to hyperspace, and its talk of Wookiees ripping off people’s arms, Star Wars is actually a pretty sweet, love-laden series. Sure, it may lean in a little too willingly on the occasional inappropriate brother-sister kiss, but the franchise has got a good deal of genuine romance and bona fide platonic affection in its holster. Like, for instance, General Leia slapping her right-hand-man Poe Dameron in the face over and over.

Before we get to see at least one of Carrie Fisher’s mighty slaps come The Last Jedi (unfortunately, not all of them made the final cut), the gang at Nerdist News Talks Back is digging into this heavily anticipated moment and the rest of Star Wars‘ unique displays of affection for a particularly heartrending episode. Hosts Dan Casey and Kyle Hill are joined by Nerdist Music Editor Matthew Grosinger to run down some of the sweetest moments we’ve seen in that galaxy far, far away.

Next, we move onto Spider-Man: Homecoming, which itself has dropped an interesting new trailer

…and a less-than-impressive new poster.

Leave it to Marvel Comics fans to spin something like that into radioactive gold.

And finally, we turn our sights to a real life hero: the young man who finally broke that Plinko record on The Price is Rightand who, in turn, brought a level of joy to the viewing public not gleaned in ages. Watch as the boys at Nerdist News Talk Back dig deep into this unparalleled phenomenon of human elation.

Any thoughts on Plinko giggles, Spider-Man posters, or Star Wars lovin’? Let us know!
