Adam Driver back in space
Most of you may have discovered Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, grandson of Darth Vader, introduced in the new Star Wars trilogy produced by Disney.

Planet of the Dinosaurs
If this scenario reminds you of anything, it’s because on paper it’s a sort of inverted Planet of the Apes.
