Although the week was much shorter here in the U.S. because of Thanksgiving, there was actually quite a bit of news, rumors and, of course, that trailer for Captain America: Civil War. On that note, we actually did a breakdown of what's actually going on in the trailer; if that was TL;DR for you, the movie will essentially see the Avengers politically divided due to the "Sokovia Accords."

Meanwhile, there was plenty more Star Wars news, while HBO revealed when to expect Game of Thrones season 6 to air. And did the image HBO released with the announcement reveal a big spoiler? (If you know what I'm talking about, it won't come as much of a surprise. Jon Snow is one of the show's most popular characters, and the way season 5 ended sure left a lot of fans with a bitter taste in their mouths.

The crazy thing to me right now is how close we are to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Only three more weeks and we'll find out whether or not the wait was worth it. I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt right now and say it's going to rock. But you never know based on a few trailers and TV spots.

Official Wonder Woman movie picture

Batman v Superman hasn't been released, but already Warner Bros. is teasing the release of Wonder Woman. The character, who is being played by Gal Gadot, is set to appear in next year's superhero showdown, but her solo flick will shed more light on the character's origins. Along with the picture, the full cast was also revealed, and it includes Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremmer and Lucy Davis.

Minions mini-movie is a delight

The Minions will never stop being adorable, and in the latest mini-movie, they're on their A game. I wasn't a huge fan of the full-length Minions feature, and this short story shows why they're so much better suited in small doses. That being said, I have no doubts we'll see another Minions movie—or at least a Despicable Me with a heavy Minions presence. Until that happens, it's back to basic in "The Competition."

Captain Phasma appears in new photo

Much of the attention has been on characters Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren. But let's not forget another new character will be introduced come Dec. 18, and that's Captain Phasma. It doesn't sound like Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie), will have an enormous role in The Force Awakens, but they sure made a point to make sure she stands out with her chrome armor. Check out the cool picture below. Chances are she'll be surrounded by death and destruction for the majority of the film.

Tremors TV reboot staring Kevin Bacon

I'm dead serious when I say Tremors is an excellent, entertaining, funny, amazing and thrilling piece of Hollywood history. It's one of those rare gems that is much better than it has any right to be, and doesn't try to over-complicate things. Just a simple movie with monsters and a town trying to survive. Hopefully the TV show retains the original movie's spirit, and doesn't try and make it too serious. [HollywoodReporter]

Fantastic Four sequel probably won't happen

To the surprise of nobody, it looks like 20th Century Fox has pulled whatever plans it had for a Fantastic Four sequel. Everyone knows by now that the Fantastic Four reboot was an unmitigated disaster, so barring some kind of miracle, we all pretty much expected Fox to re-think sequel plans. That being said, we could see these characters appear in another movie in an ensemble movie, or perhaps the rights will be handed back to Marvel. [DarkHorizons]

Star Wars rated PG-13

Citing "sci-fi action violence," Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA. Only one other Star Wars film has been rated PG-13, and that was Revenge of the Sith, which is considered to be the prequel trilogy's best offering. Judging by the trailers and TV sports we've seen from The Force Awakens, it's easy to see why such a rating was given. There are a lot of explosions and people getting shot, and I'm sure that's not all we'll see come Dec. 18.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens TV spot is all about the Dark Side

Disney has released yet another Star Wars TV spot, and this time it focuses on the exploits of Kylo Ren, the franchise's new baddie. What's cool about it is not only do we get a tiny bit of new footage, but we get to hear Supreme Leader Snoke talk a bit more. Spooky! Check it out to hear his voice, and for a better look at Starkiller Base.
