Um.... Attn - Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) Fair warning, the video probably isn't the Pokémon film that , since it's just a grainy looped clip of Pikachu - wearing his deerstalker cap like a true detective - dancing adorably for a full hour and 42 minutes. Congratulations, Pokémon fans, we've all been Pikachu-style! The "pirated" upload of the movie even includes 60 seconds of what seems like an actual opening sequence, until it follows up with Pikachu's aerobics routine (which I unashamedly watched the entirety of). Honestly, this is truly the kind of content we want and need. We bet even Blake Lively for the film. If you can't find any joy in watching a CGI fluff-monster getting down to a throwback beat and doing the running man, I just don't know what to tell you. Fans is eerily similar to the one from , which prompted Jordan Peele . The movie hasn't been released yet (it comes out in theaters on May 10), but if it's anything like this "leak," we're pretty sure it's going to be a hit. Enjoy the dancing machine that is Detective Pikachu ahead!

Mr. Robot may be morally ambiguous, but there's no ambiguity when it comes to the morality of Rami Malek's latest role - he's playing a certifiable bad guy. The cast and details of 's final Bond film, (yes, seriously, there have been 25 of them), were , and one of the most exciting details revealed was that the Bohemian Rhapsody star is taking on the role of the villain. Though we'll have to wait until April 3, 2020, to see him in action, Malek has revealed a bit about the baddie he'll be portraying. Malek was previously in talks to star as the villain before, but it was initially reported that with of Mr. Robot, the Emmy-winning series that he stars in as the titular character. Malek's team successfully negotiated his shooting schedule to accommodate both projects, though uncertainty struck again after director Danny Boyle, who cast Malek, left the project. Eventually, it was confirmed that the shooting schedule would work out, that new director Cary Joji Fukunaga still wanted Malek on board, and that the Oscar-winning actor would be heading over to the dark side. Related: After the big news was made public, Malek to discuss his upcoming role in the iconic franchise. Though the movie only recently began filming, the actor already knows "quite a bit" about his character, but during the interview, he played it coy.

He did, however, cite some examples of former Bond villains he is looking to for inspiration: , who played Raoul Silva in Skyfall, as well as Christoph Waltz, who played Ernst Stavro Blofeld in Spectre. Malek also praised his new costar Daniel Craig for his previous work as Bond. "I think Daniel has just done such an astounding job with just making him in a way relatable," he said, later adding, "It'll be very interesting to go up against that man . . . but I'm gonna give him a run for it." Unfortunately, he also revealed that this would be Craig's last time playing Bond, so Malek will really have to bring his A game when it comes to playing the villain. As he confirmed in his , "I'm very much looking forward to joining the whole cast and crew very soon, and I promise you all I will be making sure Mr. Bond does not have an easy ride of it in this."

, aka the Hound, is a complicated one that stretches back years on . The pair hadn't met for several seasons, until they finally share a scene again in the fourth episode of the final season, "The Last of the Starks." In referencing Sansa's past, the Hound calls her "little bird." It's a nickname that Sansa has heard before, from more than one place. In her early days as Joffrey's fiancée in King's Landing, Sansa is often referred to with different kinds of bird imagery. Cersei calls her "little dove" in the days when she's pretending kindness towards Sansa; it's used as a term of endearment, but one that's a little bit condescending, too. , at the time, is Joffrey's personal bodyguard, and although he doesn't intervene much when Joffrey abuses Sansa, he appears uncomfortable with it and does, at one point, rescue Sansa from an angry crowd. The Hound gives Sansa his own variation on Cersei's nickname in the season two episode "Blackwater." In the episode, he abandons his loyalty to the Lannisters with disgust and gets out of King's Landing. Before he leaves, he tracks down Sansa and offers to get her out and take her back to Winterfell. She rejects his offer and, when he gets angry, tells him defiantly that he won't hurt her. "No, little bird. I won't hurt you," he says, before walking away. In that moment, it's almost an expression of fondness or admiration. He's just finished telling Sansa that "the world is built by killers," seemingly lumping himself in with them, and yet her reaction shows that she still believes that he won't hurt her, showing her faith in the decency of people. Unlike Cersei, whose version of "little bird" seems to position Sansa as a pretty little bird in a cage, the Hound's seems to begrudgingly respect her innocence in the face of horrors. When he sees her again as an adult woman and Lady of Winterfell, she's not a "little bird" anymore, but , and although , there can be no doubt that these days.

Warning: Game of Thrones spoilers throughout this video. Proceed with caution. It's hard to believe, but the final season of is actually starting to wind down. We're more than halfway through the six episodes promised in season eight, and there are still so many questions left unanswered. The show's cocreators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss sat down with Jimmy Kimmel on Friday night, and, sadly, they didn't put to rest. Kimmel asked Benioff and Weiss, "Are we for sure done with White Walkers?" to which Benioff replied, "Yeah, we're not gonna answer that." Well, that could mean even more possibilities going into these last few episodes. In addition to dodging Kimmel's queries, Benioff and Weiss also gave some insight into a few behind-the-scenes details. For instance, they like to personally call an actor or actress if their character is set to die. At Kimmel's request, Weiss "called" Jason Momoa as an example. Don't worry, he's definitely doing fine. "I'm Aquaman now," Momoa shot back, before hanging up the phone. Watch the full video above to see the hilarious encounter go down, and find out which cast member is the most adept at learning GOT's fake languages. Hint: he plays one of Daenerys's most loyal defenders.
