Production started on Disney and LucasFim's Han Solo spin-off back in February, and, as expected, we haven't gotten many sneak peeks from the set, aside from the first official cast photo, and an Omaze video, where directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller revealed a unique alien creature. While production continues, one of the stars, Emilia Clarke teased in a recent interview that this upcoming movie is even more secretive than her hit series Game of Thrones. While she couldn't divulge anything about the plot, she did have this to say about her co-star Alden Ehrenreich, while teasing that it's scarier talking about this movie, than it is about Game of Thrones.
"I genuinely can't tell you anything other than Alden (Ehrenreich, who plays Han Solo) is magnificent, and it's a delight to do something on that level with really cool actors and nice people. But it's even scarier talking about that than Game of Thrones. »

Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.
The film opens in UK cinemas shortly after its Sundance London debut on June 9th. Check out the brand new trailer below.

Harrelson, who is currently in London this week promoting Lost in London and will be seen in the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes, plays a middle-aged man, estranged from his wife and has absolutely no concept of other people’s personal space in the trailer. On finding out he has a daughter who was put up for adoption entices her to play stalker, but not before she gives him a good handbag hiding, in order to get to know and go totally Dad crazy when he sees her being bullied. It’s classic loopy Harrelson in a role that has such warmhearted intentions but goes »

As part of its summer blockbuster preview, Entertainment Weekly caught up with War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves and star Andy Serkis to discuss the film, which picks up two years after Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and sees Caesar leading his apes into a brutal conflict with the humans, led by Woody Harrelson’s Colonel.
“It finally cracks Caesar,” said Reeves, referring to Caesar’s confrontation with The Colonel. “It sets him on a revenge mission. The movie goes from being this grand war movie to an almost Josey Wales-like Western.”
“The Colonel comes across as someone who’s psychotic,” adds Serkis. “But he is fighting for the survival of humanity, as Caesar is fighting for the apes.”

After two wildly successful movies, 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes and 2014's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, 20th Century Fox is getting ready to unveil the third installment in this hit franchise centering on the powerful ape Caesar, played by Andy Serkis. While we wait for the next trailer to debut, director Matt Reeves and star Andy Serkis shed some light on this movie in a new interview. This action-packed sci-fi thriller will focus on how both the apes and humanity engage in a war for their own livelihood.
Entertainment Weekly caught up with both Matt Reeves and Andy Serkis as part of their summer movie preview. When we first met Caesar, he was just one ape among many, who was raised by James Franco's character Will Rodman. Now he is a fully grown ape who has evolved into a family man and commander »
Simon Kassianides was ready for a change.
The University of Edinburgh graduate had been planning on a career in finance, but when that didn’t feel fulfilling to him the Brit decided to open an organic, fair-trade coffee shop.
“I had the shop for about a year and a half, a producer would come in and we would talk about movies,” says Kassianides. “One day he just said, ‘Why don’t you come make coffee on set?’ ”
From there, Kassianides — whose parents are Greek — began working as an office and production assistant.
“While doing that I was spotted,” he says. »

We had heard some weeks ago that the young Han Solo anthology movie would reveal the true name behind the legendary character before he took up the moniker he would become famous for.
Speaking to MTV, Kennedy reaffirmed that the movie won’t reveal how Solo got his name, but what Iger actually meant is that the galaxy will learn who Han is through his adventures in the film.
“I’m not sure that that’s entirely what Bob meant. There’s more to Han Solo’s name, but it’s not that it’s not his name. It’s obviously his name. It will always be his name,” Kennedy said.
Well, that’s that sorted then. Panic over.

With so many of our favorite working actresses in key potential Oscar roles this year this season is either going to be tremendously exciting or crushing disappointing.
The Supporting Actress Chart Is Up
Answer me these questions three:
Who you think we're underestimating? Which performance on the chart are you most anxious to see? Do you think any of the 4 time nominees (Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, and Michelle Williams) move to 5 nominee status this year? 5 is actually such a major threshold that's really hard for people to break into. Only 29 women, if I'm counting correctly, have done it with Julianne Moore and Amy Adams being the most recent inductees to that exclusive club). With maybe 2 exceptions (Geraldine Page and Thelma Ritter) everyone who's ever managed 5 has been a rather huge movie star of their day, »

One year ago, Fox Searchlight Pictures sat primed for awards season with a sure-fire contender in Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation.” On the heels of a pricey pick-up at the Sundance Film Festival, riding the ongoing wave of a diversity rally cry, the distributor that had claimed the best picture trophy two out of the previous three years was poised to dominate.
To say the least, none of that panned out as planned. And there was little else remaining in the quiver. Searchlight was ultimately left with a Toronto acquisition (Pablo Larrain’s “Jackie”) and an uncharacteristically modest showing on the circuit.
But the mini-major has been busy lining up its players for a 2017 comeback. Over the last several weeks, Searchlight has set release dates for three films in the thick of the season: “Battle of the Sexes,” from “Little Miss Sunshine” duo Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, »

It looks like the upcoming movie War for the Planet of the Apes is going to be getting a prequel in the form of a comic. Boom! Studios has announced a comic series that takes place after 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and right before War for the Planet of the Apes. The first issue of this prequel series will land just two days prior to the release of the movie, and the kind folks over at Screenrant have provided exclusive photos of two alternate covers for issue #1, which will be available July 12th:
Also included in the big reveal was a synopsis for the prequel:
“In this prequel to the upcoming blockbuster film from 20th Century Fox, San Francisco lies in ruin as the war for survival between man and ape rests on the shoulders of one solitary soul.”

Woody Harrelson has long proven himself to be a multi-talented actor with a decades-spanning career — first achieving fame with the massively popular sitcom Cheers, and going on to do everything from radical violent fare like Natural Born Killers, to comedies like White Men Can’t Jump.

Of all the roles that Bill Murray has played in his career, Ernie McCracken is easily in my top five. The funny thing is that Bill Murray is rarely if ever upstaged in a movie. I’m not saying anyone upstaged Murray in Kingpin but I will say that something did: His hair. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as hard in the theater as I did during the final showdown between he and Woody Harrelson in that film. Speaking of the final showdown, there’s a little known fact about the last 3 strikes that Bill Murry rolls. According to Uproxx’s

Last month, Disney CEO Bob Iger made some interesting comments about the highly-anticipated Han Solo spin-off, revealing that fans will learn how Han meets his Wookie partner Chewbacca, and that it will follow Han between the years of 18 and 24. The Disney head also dropped quite a big bombshell that has had fans up in arms ever since, revealing that Han Solo isn't actually this smuggler's real name. Thankfully, during Star Wars Celebration this past week, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy said that Han Solo's name will not change.
Ever since Bob Iger made this revelation in late March, some fans have theorized that this Han Solo movie will reveal his real name to be Han Ren, which would explain why his son Ben changed his name to Kylo Ren when he turned to the Dark Side before the events of The Force Awakens. This fan theory has yet to be confirmed, »
A lot regarding the upcoming Han Solo spinoff film has been questionable. Yes, we all love Han Solo. We love his smooth-talking, his swagger, and his street savvy. It’s no accident that he ended up being one of the most beloved Star Wars characters of all time. The fact that LucasFilm is actually going back and re-visiting him was quite the risky move.
So far, all the talent in place seems promising. We have Lawrence Kasdan co-writing the script, we have Phil Lord and Chris Miller at the helm, and we have Alden Ehrenreich taking on the role of the scoundrel himself. However, last month, there was an investors call, and on it, Bob Iger reportedly said, according to reporter Ben Fritz, that the film would follow Han finding the Falcon, meeting Chewbacca, and “getting his name.”
Han Solo movie will follow him from age 18 through 24 and show him finding the Falcon, »

Early this year, after crafting memorable characters for the better part of four decades, Woody Harrelson jumped behind the camera for his directorial debut, and it was anything but conventional. Lost in London premiered as a live feature film event, streamed in theaters around the world, all captured in a single take on location in Central London.
Starring Harrelson, Owen Wilson, and Willie Nelson, the film is loosely based on the director’s own experience of one crazy night as he attempts to get back to his family. This journey is thwarted by run-ins with the law, friends, and royalty. If you didn’t get a chance to see the film as it was captured live, it’s now being released theatrically across London, fittingly, next month. The first trailer has also arrived, which hints at a more cinematic feel than we would’ve guessed, and can be seen below. »

Back in January of this year, Woody Harrelson wrote, directed and starred in Lost in London, the first motion picture to be shot and screened live in theaters. The comedy is now coming to UK cinemas for a limited release this May, and you can take a look at a trailer for the film right here…
A comic re-staging of one crazy night in Soho in 2002, Lost In London follows Harrelson, playing himself, as he struggles to get home to his family after a scandal threatens to ruin his marriage. Run-ins with royalty, friends and the law all seem to conspire to keep him from succeeding. Funny, charming and finally quite moving, Woody’s film ultimately proves much more than a dazzling technical exercise.
Lost in London opens at Picturehouse Central on May 1st and select UK cinemas from May 5th. »
