Week in Geek #101: Boba Fett, National Treasure, Fury Files, Silence and Elon Musk | Fanboys Anonymous
Welcome to another edition of WEEK IN GEEK here at Fanboys Anonymous—a rundown of some of the events, news and stories that went down over the past few days in the geek culture spectrum.

This week in geek culture Fanboys Anonymous nerd recap

Here are some of the topics I felt like voicing my opinions about:

The Fury Files

A show coming to Disney+ is going to be an animated motion comic portfolio type of thing called Fury Files, diving deeper into characters. I feel like that's some easy content that they are doing in the lull, and it's not the most important thing in the world, but it's still kind of neat and it's good they're putting in that effort.

Elon Musk + Tom Cruise + Space = Movie???

Musk and Cruise are teaming up to film a movie in space. In space. IN SPACE. IN....SPACE.

Does Cruise think "Well, if I can't die from these Mission: Impossible movies, I might as well try space" or something?

This is pretty awesome, in some ways. I hope it happens and that it goes well.

Temuera Morrison Coming to The Mandalorian Season 2

Is he Rex, or is he Boba Fett, or is he both? That seems to possibly be the case. All three scenarios are quite awesome. It would be great to have some confirmation that Fett survived the Sarlacc Pit and that Rex was still kicking after Return of the Jedi

National Treasure
A third movie is still in the works, supposedly, as well as a Disney+ television series with a young cast that hasn't been confirmed to be a reboot, sequel or anything else in particular.

I liked those two films. They're silly, but they were fun. I'm definitely down for seeing a third and a possibly spin-off, if they can be done well. I'll at least check them out, for sure, so they have my endorsement at this level.

The Silence of the Lambs Sequel TV Show

They're making a TV series that's a sequel to The Silence of the Lambs (but not just an adaptation of Hannibal, I guess, nor a continuation of that series). I don't know. I have to assume this is going to fail, but I do like those movies, so I need to see something out of it before I fully judge it. After all, the last series with Mads was pretty great, for the most part. Maybe this will have its positives, too.
