By now, unless you’re hiding away on Jakku, the Google Arts & Culture Face Match App has dominated your social media feed more efficiently than the Empire’s invasion of the Rebel Base on Hoth. But, what happens when you show the faces of characters from a galaxy far, far away to the lauded and addictive app? Well, it turns out the algorithm of Google Arts & Culture thinks that Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker is King of Rock n’ Roll. That’s right, the Hayden Christensen is Elvis Presley, according to the Google algorithm.

The vast majority of Star Wars characters manage to find a likeness similar to their own visage when you snap pictures of them. But, Anakin is a special case. Though it’s no the first result in our Anakin Skywalker face match, a portrait of Elvis Presley from the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery is the second image that matches with Anakin Skywalker’s. What do Anakin and Elvis have in common? Well, a lot. Both were very talented, and both had a downward spiral that was somewhat tragic. However, of the two of them, we’d rather have Elvis whisper sweet nothings to us romantically.

Here’s how a few other Star Wars characters turned out on the Face Match App.

Mother and daughter: Leia and Padme

Queen Amidala and Princess Leia

Strikingly, both matches for Leia and her mother, Padme Amidala are self-portraits. Which, is fitting for both of these independent women.

Rey and Kylo Ren

Both Rey and Kylo Ren’s art history matches feel accurate. And yes, it feels easy to imagine Kylo Rn as being a young man with apples, back when he still went by Ben Solo.

Han and Finn, both connected to LA.

Han Solo and Finn

While Han looks decidedly older when matched with his art history double, Finn looks just about as cool as he should. Though, we don’t think calling Finn “random,” is quite right.

Obi-Wan and Ahsoka

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano

Obi-Wan certainly looks like himself in art museums, while Ahsoka seems to have the highest portrait match of any of the Star Wars characters we tried.

Which brings us back to father and son Skywalker. Luke certainly looks like himself, but Anakin as Elvis is still blowing our minds.

Also, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that multiple attempts to do face matches with Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Jar Jar Binks, Admiral Ackbar and Jabba the Hutt all failed. Which suggests that perhaps, George Lucas’s most original artistic creations, are in fact the characters who are perpetually hidden behind some kind of mask.

It’s only Tuesday, but the latest batch of Fortnite: Battle Royale challenges have already leaked. We actually covered the initial news (and the mystery behind it) last week, but with Season 6 challenges quickly approaching here’s a quick guide on what you can do to prepare for the update (presumably version 5.3).

Monday is normally the day when Epic Games gives a tease of what’s coming in the next update for Fortnite: Battle Royale. While the company has yet to tweet or post about the update on the game’s subreddit, the update will likely happen Tuesday morning and include some interesting content.

Tuesday’s patch for Fortnite: Battle Royale will include new content and fixes to the game. One of the pieces will cause a big change to the game while the rest will be welcome additions for players.

Slender Man is the first feature film based on the wildly popular Slender Man creepypasta stories, but the movie’s abrupt ending suggests that the filmmakers don’t intend on producing a sequel. What we got instead a message that seems to put the franchise in an identity crisis.

Warning: Slender Man spoilers ahead.

Shark movies have an important place in film history. Jaws, the first-ever summer blockbuster, changed the film industry forever. Despite having a much bigger shark in it The Meg will certainly not make as big a splash as Jaws. The new action movie is perfectly dumb in the best possible way, though in an unexpected twist, the giant shark is really itself just bait to get moviegoers to see a Jason Statham movie.

Epic Games’ Fortnite: Battle Royale Summer Skirmish Series had a rocky start, but the weekly esports competition vastly improved over the course of four weeks. In Week 5, the event will go back to a duos tournament, but this time around, players will be awarded for a more aggressive playstyle.

On Thursday, Epic revealed the format for the Week 5 Summer Skirmish Series, which it calls King Pin. Fifty teams of two will compete in eight matches. They will receive points for each elimination they rack up, but what makes things interesting are the bonuses. A duo can receive double their points in the next match if they score seven or more eliminations or triple the points if they earn a Victory Royale. With this format, the team that strategizes and wins multiple matches could handily beat out the competition if they score plenty of kills or all their efforts to earn a Victory Royale could be for naught if they die right away in the next match.
