“I don’t wanna take up a ton of your time, but I’m gonna kill myself. I just thought an adult should know.”
“The Edge Of Seventeen could be the teen movie we’ve been waiting for”, said Vanity Fair. The coming-of-age dramedy starring Hailee Steinfeld as a high schooler who has to cope when her best friend falls for her brother is currently available on Blu-ray from Universal.
Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson).

There has been many a droid in the long history of Star Wars but a new rumour suggests that the Han Solo movie will feature a female droid to accompany our heroes.
In what would be the first significant role for a female droid in the series’ history, Hollywood insider site, The Tracking Board, reports that Phoebe Waller-Bridge is to take on the part.
Of course Star Wars doesn’t always assign gender to its droids, but having one feature prominently in this picture will certainly change the dynamic.
Starring Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) in the leading role as the famous smuggler, the Han Solo film is directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord and also features Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, »

Depicting teenage angst with such pinpoint accuracy one wonders why it’s never been handled precisely this way before, The Edge of Seventeen was not only one of the best directorial debuts of last year, but one of my favorite films of 2016 — period. Writer-director Kelly Fremon Craig‘s script — which never dumb downs or generalizes the high school experience — is brought to life perfectly by Hailee Steinfeld in her finest, most emotionally honest performance yet.
With the film now arriving on Blu-ray/DVD today, I had the chance to speak with Craig to discuss capturing the high school experience, the underlying sadness of the film, two of my favorite scenes in the third act, the box-office reception, her favorite film of last year, and much more. Check out the full conversation below.

Hollywood makes plenty of movies about teenagers, but few of them authentically capture the emotional rollercoaster of adolescence. But “The Edge Of Seventeen” gets it just right. The charmer earned plenty of critical love last fall, and now its coming to home video, and we want some lucky readers to take home their own Blu-ray copy.
Starring Hailee Steinfeld, Woody Harrelson, Kyra Sedgwick, Blake Jenner, Haley Lu Richardson, and Hayden Szeto, the story follows Nadine and Krista, inseparable best friends attempting to navigate high school together…until Nadine discovers her older brother and Krista have been secretly dating behind her back.

Let’s kick things off this week with Star Wars: The Last Jedi and although Josh Gad and Judi Dench have been unable to get answers about the mystery behind the title [see them try here and here], Disney’s Bob Iger has shed some light on the subject. After seeing an advanced screening of the movie, Iger said it was “a great chapter in the iconic Skywalker family saga”. Now, does this confirm that Rey is in fact Luke’s daughter, or is this a hint that Mark Hamill will be the focus of the film..?

Teen comedies can be annoying, but every year seems to bring a good one. What work nicely are thoughtful movies that acknowledge the modern problems of teens in such a highly sexualized world, and place the sexual aspects in a non-exploitative context. I have been entertained and moved by Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick in Election, Ellen Page in Juno and Thomas Mann and Olivia Cooke in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. This year’s The Edge of Seventeen is a bright writing-directing »

Thandie Newton might be going from a futuristic western theme park to a galaxy far, far away. Variety reports that the “Westworld” actress is in talks to join the cast of the upcoming “Star Wars” Han Solo standalone film.
Details of her character were not revealed, but if she jumps on board the project, Newton will join Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and “Fleabag” actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the untitled Han Solo movie will be the second in the series of films that fall outside of the Skywalker family saga. Set before the the events of “A New Hope,” the film will follow Solo and his scoundrel days before meeting Luke and Leia.
Newton recently received a Golden Globe and SAG Award nomination »

The cast of Han Solo continues to grow, with Westworld star Thandie Newton in talks to join the impressive ensemble. As per usual, there’s sadly no word on who she will be playing, and with the Expanded Universe no longer canon, we can’t even look there for any major clues.
This is a great bit of casting, though, and Newton is riding high after her recent stint in the HBO series mentioned above. Next up for her is Xavier Dolan’s The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, while season two of Westworld also begins shooting later this year. Han Solo will be squeezed in somewhere, but this doesn’t necessarily reveal the significance of her role.
With Disney shifting the focus to Star Wars: The Last Jedi in April to coincide with this year’s Celebration, chances are that it will be a »

With filming already under way on Disney and LucasFilm's latest Star Wars spin-off, Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, the cast continues to be filled out. Today we have word that Westworld star Thandie Newton has entered negotiations to join the cast. As is the case with most of the recent casting additions, no details were given as to which character Thandie Newton may be playing, but her casting may hint at a recent character rumor.
Variety broke the news on today's casting, which comes just two days after the site broke the news that Fleabag star/creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge will join the cast as a CGI character that is said to be quite important to the film. Unfortunately, the site has no details about Thandie Newton's character, but back in October, a report claimed that three actresses of color, Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Zoe Kravitz (Mad Max: Fury Road »
It was only the other day we heard that Fleabag actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge might be joiningthe Han Solo Star Wars Anthology film, but now Variety is reporting yet another name for the film. Westworld‘s Thandie Newton is apparently in talks to join the ensemble cast.
Newton starred as the robotic host Maeve in Westworld. She became a central and fan-favourite character in the show as Maeve began a journey of self-discovery in order to escape the park. Newton was recently nominated for a Golden Globe and two SAG awards for her performance in the show’s first season. She’s scheduled to reprise her role later this year when Westworld‘s second season begins production. Right now, though, Newton will begin production of The Death and Life of John F. Donovan in March.

Variety is reporting tonight that Westworld star Thandie Newton has boarded the upcoming Han Solo spinoff in an undisclosed role. She’ll join Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke, among others. Not a bad cast, eh? Coming off a terrific turn in HBO’s hit sci-fi series, we imagine the actress will have a decent sized part here as she’s hotter than ever right now, but unfortunately, there are no further details on her casting at the moment.
This news comes only days after we heard that Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s spinoff had added Flebag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge. It seems that things are really starting to come together for the film now as it puts together the final pieces of its very impressive cast, and we can’t wait to see how it all turns out.
Newton is yet another great addition to the flick, »

There’s no information on which part Newtown might play, but she’d be joining a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. (Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge is also apparently in talks for a role.) Han Solo is currently scheduled to come out some time in 2018. »

The Han Solo cast just keeps getting bigger and better. Thandie Newton is reportedly orbiting the Star Wars spinoff, which also stars Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, and Woody Harrelson. The news comes just one day after we learned that Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) was also in talks. Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie) are directing.

The untitled “Han Solo” hits theaters May 25, 2018.
Produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Allison Shearmur, the Star Wars spinoff takes place before the original “A New Hope,” similarly to the recent spinoff, “Rogue One,” which has amassed over a billion dollars worldwide.

Coming off her critically acclaimed and SAG/Golden Globe nominated turn as Maeve in HBO's Westworld, Variety reports that Thandie Newton is in negotiations to join the upcoming Han Solo spinoff in an undisclosed role. This follows the news that Fleabag actress Pheobe Waller-Bridge has also signed on to play a filly CG character, who is actually said to be the franchise's first female droid. Newton shot to fame after a brief appearance in Interview with The Vampire, and has since appeared in the likes of Crash, The Pursuit of Happyness, and Run Fatboy Run. The still untitled Han Solo movie recently commenced production and is set to hit theaters on May 25, 2018. The film will also star Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Alden Ehrenreich as the budding space smuggler of the title. »
“That is his biggest crime, conflating those two words. A refugee is someone who seeks refuge; it is someone we need to help,” Gere told a news conference at the Berlinale on Friday. “The number of hate crimes in the U.S. went up enormously when Donald Trump began running for president. There are leaders who spread fear. It’s happening here, too.”
Gere spoke after a screening of his competition film “The Dinner,” an intense drama about two families dealing with a horrifying crime committed by the sons and, in a larger sense, with issues of anger and politics.
