Han Solo Movie to Expose a Big Secret, Timeline Revealed

54 minutes ago

Oh, boy! This could go over like a lead balloon. But it seems Han Solo: A Star Wars Story may be taking a page out of the Indiana Jones playbook. Possibly as an ode to Harrison Ford, who is being replaced by Alden Ehrenreich in this second spin-off since Lucasfilm was acquired by Disney. And keep in mind, this isn't some lofty rumor. This comes directly from the mouth of Disney CEO Bob Iger, who is in charge of this entire operation. Apparently Han Solo isn't really Han Solo's name. But we'll learn how he got this name in the upcoming movie, set for release in summer 2018.

As many well know, Indiana Jones' real name is Henry Jones Jr., and that he took on the name of his family dog when he got into archeology. That has always rubbed some fans the wrong way. Now, it appears that Han Solo »

True Meaning Behind Snoke's Name Revealed in Star Wars 8?

2 hours ago

Without a doubt, Snoke is going to be a major player in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it's expected that he'll be vanquished in Star Wars 9. But the mystery swirling around this character is deep and wide, and fans barely know anything about the guy. Today, a new rumor has surfaced that suggests his name actually means something, and is an acronym that hints at the true tale being told in these new Star Wars sequels.

Yes, perhaps this sounds a little outlandish and could be nothing more than some flight of fancy dreamed up by a bored Internet troll. But it's interesting to consider none the less. Is Supreme Leader Snoke's name really an acronym that extends and helps explain the mystery behind his appearance? Reputable Star Wars expert Mike Zeroh claims to have the facts. Even if his reporting is sometimes lofty and unsubstantiated.

Star Wars 8 recently underwent reshoots in Dubrovnik, »

Three Billboards Trailer: Frances McDormand Vs. Woody Harrelson

3 hours ago

Fox Searchlight Pictures has debuted the first red band trailer and poster for the upcoming Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which doesn't have a release date in place at this time. This dark comedy marks the return of Irish filmmaker Martin McDonagh, whose films In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths have both achieved cult status. With his third feature film, Martin McDonagh heads to the Midwest, to tell the tale of a mother who uses some unique tactics to find justice for her slain daughter.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police. »

Why James Gunn Hates the Howard the Duck Movie

3 hours ago

James Gunn may have given Howard the Duck a new lease on life when he reintroduced the character back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his first Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014. But he absolutely hates the 1986 movie produced by George Lucas. And there is one really specific reason why, outside of it being an awful adaptation of the once very popular Marvel mallard.

Howard the Duck made his infamous return in the Guardians of the Galaxy post-credit scene. And ever since, fans have been hounding Marvel for a stand-alone spin-off featuring the anthropomorphic water fowl. That hasn't happened yet, and it's unclear if Howard will return in this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But director James Gunn has made one thing clear, and he doesn't mince his words. The original Howard the Duck 'sucks'!

Released in summer 1986, Howard the Duck arrived in theaters as a huge bomb. »

Leaked Deadpool 2 Concept Art Shows Brad Pitt as Cable?

4 hours ago

Who will play Cable in Deadpool 2? That has been an ongoing guessing game ever since the first movie debuted over a year ago. In the months since, we've heard plenty of big names tossed about. Yesterday, it was reported that Michael Shannon was 20th Century Fox's top choice. Though, Brad Pitt was also in the mix. Some speculated that Michael Shannon was being sold in the media as the front runner to force Pitt's hand in signing. Now, today we get supposedly leaked concept art from the set which shows Pitt as Cable.

This art is rumored to have leaked from the Deadpool 2 production offices on the 20th Century Fox lot. And they are shared by fan art maestro Boss Logic, who doesn't exactly know where these arrived from. As the man has started to make a living off his own art, these weren't made by him, and don't feature his signature look. »

Woody Harrelson Is Not Playing Garris Shrike in Han Solo

4 hours ago

Disney and LucasFilm's highly-anticipated Han Solo spin-off started production in London last month, with the studio releasing the first official photo, featuring Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, along with Emilia Clarke and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, whose characters have not yet been confirmed. The photo also featured Woody Harrelson, who confirmed in an interview just a month before filming started, that he is playing the iconic character Garris Shrike, who first appeared in the 1997 novel The Paradise Snare, and was seen as a criminal mentor to Han Solo in the years before A New Hope. Now it seems that the actor may be playing the same character, but with a different name.

Vision Returns In Latest Avengers: Infinity War Set Photo

5 hours ago

Filmmakers Anthony and Joe Russo made headlines last year when they claimed their highly-anticipated superhero ensemble Avengers: Infinity War will feature upwards of 67 characters. The filmmakers later backed away from that exact figure, but it at least gave fans an idea of how many heroes to expect, with the directors also teasing that this movie will unite practically the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. While we still don't have a full cast list for Infinity War quite yet, we've slowly but surely been getting confirmation of individual characters, and today we have a set photo that confirms Paul Bettany's Vision is returning.

The photo first surfaced on Reddit, which reveals that the photo was taken on the Edinburgh set of Infinity War. The photo was taken from a distance, but it's clearly the Vision costume, although it isn't immediately clear if it's actually Paul Bettany in the costume, or his stunt double. »

CHiPs Review: A Fun Ride Full of Nudity, Violence and Big Laughs

5 hours ago

CHiPs is hilarious. I laughed myself silly from start to finish. Dax Shepard has breathed glorious life into the tired and stale buddy cop genre. This is no easy feat. Think of how many god awful movies and television shows have the buddy cop premise. It's a wasteland of terrible. Not this time. As both writer and director, Shepard deserves the lion's share of credit for pulling off this film. His co-star, Michael Pena, is absolutely fantastic. But Shepard needs to take the victory lap. Chips is tremendously entertaining, a much better film than expected.

Shepard stars as Jon Baker, a beat-up former motocross champion; earnestly trying to be an La bike cop. He thinks it'll win back his horrendous, soon to be ex-wife (Kirsten Bell). The government believes a rash of armored car robberies is being perpetrated by dirty cops. Michael Pena co-stars as a hard-charging, insanely sex-addicted FBI agent. »

New Justice League Footage and Poster Arrive, Trailer Coming Saturday

It's been teased for months. This Saturday, it's finally here. Warner Bros. and DC Films will drop the first official trailer for Justice League. The teaser premiere comes on the one year anniversary of 2016's superhero adventure Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. To get things going this morning, Warner Bros. and DC have unveiled a little bit of new footage along with the official Justice League teaser poster.

Warner Bros. and DC aren't playing by the same rules as Marvel when it comes to promoting their upcoming releases. And with reason, as they're trying to secure their stronghold in the cinematic superhero landscape. Where Marvel waits until after the release of their latest big movie to promote the next one, DC is jumping the gun a bit, attempting to sell Justice League before Wonder Woman gets a chance to find its audience or bring in any reviews.

19 hours ago

Ghost in the Shell is getting ready to hit theaters in a little more than a week, but for those of you who are feeling a little impatient, you can check out the first five minutes of the movie online right now. Paramount decided to give fans a little taste of what's to come by releasing the clip online today, and it is very heavy on the action. Despite the controversy surrounding her casting, it also seems like Scarlett Johansson is kicking some serious butt as Major and looking good doing it.

Paramount initially debuted the clip during a Facebook Live streaming event but they later released a slightly extended version of the clip to their YouTube channel. In the video, we see Major hanging out on a rooftop listening in on an important meeting that has to do with "cyber enhancement." Things quickly get out of hand and the bullets start flying. »

20 hours ago

Last week, Sony Pictures handed out a 2018 release date for their new Venom spin-off that will expand the studio's Spider-Man universe, although it will not be connected to Spider-Man: Homecoming.

20 hours ago

Back in October, Emmet/Furla/Oasis revealed that it had greenlit the sequel Escape Plan 2, with original Escape Plan star Sylvester Stallone returning to star, although there is no word yet whether or not Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back as well. Shooting got under way in Atlanta, Georgia this week, and earlier today, Sylvester Stallone sent out the first video from the set, revealing his bloodied face, along with his co-star Dave Bautista and new cast member Jesse Metcalfe. What's perhaps the most intriguing part of this video, though, is a mysterious robot, that Sylvester Stallone would only say figures into the ending of the movie.

Sylvester Stallone shared this video on Instagram just a few hours ago, where he tried to see if he's taller than co-star Dave Bautista or not. This video also gave us our first look at Jesse Metcalfe, who just recently joined the cast of this action sequel. »

21 hours ago

Rainn Wilson, the man who is responsible for bringing Dwight Schrute to life on The Office, wants to play the next Bond bad guy.

The actor recently spoke with Cinemablend about his upcoming role as Gargamel in Smurfs: The Lost Village. During the course of the conversation, it somehow came up that he would actually love to play a villain in a James Bond movie, even though he understands that it would be a long shot. Here is what he had to say about it.

"Boy I would love to play a Bond villain one day but I highly doubt that's gonna happen. I highly doubt the producers of Bond are gonna go, »
