You're going to see a lot more of your favorite love team this year! In an interview with the press, James Reid and Nadine Lustre confirmed that they will be doing a new film, but have yet to learn more about their new project.

Game of Thrones has confirmed one of the biggest and most popular fan theories surrounding Jon Snow. The season finale featured a flashback (of sorts) that proves he isn't a bastard of Ned Stark. Instead, we see a much-younger Ned Stark talking to his dying sister, Lyanna, who was captured by Rhaegar Targaryen (the late older brother of Daenerys Targaryen). In short, Jon is not in any way a bastard and a definite contender for the Iron Throne.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, producer Simon Kinberg confirmed that Deadpool 2 is scheduled for filming early next year.

Pope Francis gave a press conference while aboard the papal plane to Rome on Sunday afternoon, June 26. He reflected on his three-day trip to Armenia, misbehavior of Christians, and reform in the Catholic Church. Cindy Wooden of Catholic News Service asked the Pope to comment on a statement by Cardinal Reinhard Marx, president of the German bishops' conference, which said that the Catholic Church must apologize to gay people for contributing to their marginalization. To this, Pope Francis said: "I think that the Church must not only ask forgiveness—like that 'Marxist Cardinal' said—must not only ask forgiveness to the gay person who is offended. But she must ask forgiveness to the poor too, to women who are exploited, to children who are exploited for labor."
Martial Law victims assembled at the Libingan ng mga Bayani grave set aside for Ferdinand Marcos on Sunday afternoon, June 26, for a solemn and silent protest against the burial of the former dictator at the heroes' cemetery. They filled the hole with stones bearing the names of those who were killed, went missing, or tortured under the Marcos dictatorship. Bubut Vazquez of the Bawat Bato initiative said in a Facebook post, “On each stone laid was written the name of a man/woman/child kidnapped, tortured and murdered during Martial Law. They are the real heroes who deserve to be buried here." The proposed site is right next to the Philippine flag waving on top of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and right behind the grave of former Philippine president Carlos P. Garcia.
