Welcome back for this week's edition of Fark's Headlines of the Week, where we bring you some of Fark's funniest and most creative headlines from last week. We have another great crop of headlines this week, and as always, a reminder that these headlines come from your votes. So hit that thumbs-up button in the thread header when you see something you like, and you might just see it here next week.

Also, since no one reads this blurb anymore, I'll just say that I can't decide whether I'm anticipating Ghost in the Shell or Logan more. Luckily they don't come out the same week, so I don't have to decide.

Probably Logan - I've only seen a couple of the X-Men films but it sounds like Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman are hanging up their mutant powers so I should try to catch this one.

I can't decide - trailers for both are farking phenomenal with great actors and immersive special effects. I find it odd they're releasing movies with this kind of potential in March instead of waiting for the traditional release as a summer blockbuster in June or July.
