Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un Will Meet in June
A year ago, would this have seemed possible? Both the US President and the leader of North Korea will meet for their first-ever face to face summit in Singapore in June. The US policy appears to be that they hope to encourage Kim to disarm his nuclear arsenal – while North Korea warmly suggests that the occasion will be an ‘historic event’. The move comes just days after North and South Korea finally declared an historic truce after decades of tension.

Iron Man’s Suit is Missing
LAPD detectives are currently investigating the theft of the original Iron Man suit – used in the 2008 Jon Favreau movie and worn by Robert Downey Jr – as a burglary investigation into the theft of the $325,000 prop from a facility in Pacoima becomes international news. It’s timed just around the launch of the recent cinematic triumph, Infinity War – though sources assume the theft could have taken place as early as February this year.

Solo: A Star Wars Story Premieres
It’s not the first Star Wars spin-off, but it’s perhaps one of the most ambitious moments in the canon – the prequel looks at bounty hunter Han Solo and wookie companion Chewbacca’s adventures before he got embroiled in the Skywalker saga – and, on the back of the official premiere, the buzz so far is rather positive.

Brooklyn Nine Nine is Cancelled
You can often tell how much a show is loved once it’s cancelled – and, even at the time of writing, social media petitioning continues as Fox pulls the plug on the Andy Samberg police sitcom Brooklyn Nine Nine after five seasons. Despite ratings alleged to have been flagging at the bottom of Fox’s radar, both stars and fans have come out in force to celebrate the show – while rumors surrounding whether or not it will be picked up by Hulu, Netflix or TBS reverberate.
