(SPOT.ph) Busy day, Spotters? We quickly recap 10 things you might have missed while you were off the radar.
Are you still frustrated at how the Inception ending left you hanging? Director Christopher Nolan has finally discussed how it ended...sort of. In a graduation speech given at Princeton University, he urged the graduates to "chase [their] reality" and continued, "I want to make the case to you that our dreams, our virtual realities, these abstractions that we enjoy and surround ourselves with they are subsets of reality."
He then compared his statement to the Inception ending, saying, "The way the end of that film worked, Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Cobb—he was off with his kids, he was in his own subjective reality. He didn’t really care anymore, and that makes a statement: perhaps, all levels of reality are valid [...] But the question of whether that’s a dream or whether it’s real is the question I’ve been asked most about any of the films I’ve made. It matters to people because that’s the point about reality. Reality matters."
Cesar Montano continues to remain mum about his rumored relationship with Miss Philippines Earth 2009 Sandra Seifert. In an interview with PEP.ph, he denied having a baby with her, saying, "Lagi na lang may [bundle of] joy. 'Pag meron kang Diyos, laging may joy. Kasama 'yon." He didn't directly respond, however, to questions on whether he was dating her. The two were recently spotted in the audience of the May 26 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The upcoming DC film Aquaman has found its new director in Furious 7's James Wan. The movies star Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones), who will first appear as the ruler of Atlantis in 2016's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. His solo film is set to hit theaters in 2018.
After decades of supposed extinction, two amphibian species were rediscovered by a team of scientists who were on a research expedition in Palawan.
