Much has been made of the climactic lightsaber “battle” in Rian Johnson’s divisive Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Even in a film that divided opinion on its treatment of long-held Star Wars traditions — wearing scary masks and keeping the bad guy alive until the final movie in the trilogy — the battle between Yrlo Ren and Luke Skywalker on the salt planet of Crait was perhaps the most-discussed.

The crux of the Skywalker-Ren showdown is one of confusion. What the hell? Jedi can just appear wherever they want like holograms? Some thought it a cool way to underline the impact of Luke’s legacy, some thought it a weird plot hole (spoiler: it was the first one).

Whatever you think, there was certainly little within the established Star Wars canon that suggested what Luke did — even as the most powerful Jedi of all-time — should even be possible. That is, until director Rian Johnson shared a series of tweets that, once and for all, refuted the notion, pointing to a Lucasfilm-approved book called The Jedi Path, published in 2010. The book set a precedent for something called the “doppelgänger” under “Advanced Force Techniques.”

Anyway, don’t take my (or Rian Johnson’s) word for it: you can own The Jedi Path right now. It’s available on Amazon Prime, along with another book, Book of Sith.

You can buy The Jedi Path and Book of the Sith for $33.48.

It’s a small price to pay to get a head-start on all the crazy new Jedi powers that debut in J.J. Abrams’s Episode IX, due out in December 2019.

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.
