This new Star Wars film development
Marvel’s Kevin Feige is helping develop a new Star Wars film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Disney’s co-chairman Alan Horn revealed to them that Feige is being brought on to help Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy. They’re not the only ones working on a new Star Wars movie, though, as Game of Thrones' showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff and Rian Johnson are also busy creating something in the Star Wars universe. That’s on top of Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian for Disney Plus, which is being launched in November.

Canon has unveiled a new entry-level camera - the EOS M200 - to succeed its popular M100 model. This mirrorless camera will be available next month for £499, and offers 4K video, Canon’s latest DIGIC 8 processor and an improved autofocus. It has eye-detection and dual pixel autofocus to help you avoid blurry photos, along with a touch-enabled, selfie screen and a 24.1 megapixel APS-C sensor (the same as in the M100).
This A Quiet Place 2 first look
This week, we got our first look at the sequel to A Quiet Place after director John Krasinki posted a photo on social media. The photo was posted to celebrate that filming for A Quiet Place 2 wrapped this week. The photo shows him walking holding hands with his wife and co-star Emily Blunt, who will be returning as Evelyn Abbott for the second film. We don’t yet know if John Krasinki’s character Lee will return (in flashbacks or otherwise), but A Quiet Place: Part II is set to be released on May 15, 2020.

That Whisky with 'magic' labels
London’s Whisky Show is set to take place this weekend, and The Whisky Exchange has pulled out all the stops for it. It is releasing a collection of Scotch Whiskies with ‘magic’ labels that you can only read under UV light. With every purchase from The Magic of the Cask collection you get a UV torch, which is an industry first apparently. Don’t worry if you’re not going to the show, the collection will be put on The Whisky Exchange website after the event, with prices starting at a somewhat painful £84.95.
