In the least surprising news of the week, it has been made official that Ron Howard will direct the Han Solo Star Wars spin-off for Lucasfilm, taking over duties from the recently departed Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

The news came with an official statement from Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy.

“At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago,” said Kennedy. “With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step in to direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie. Filming will resume the 10th of July.”

Watch the UK trailer for Wakefield, starring Bryan Cranston

11 hours ago

Signature Entertainment have debuted the UK trailer for the upcoming Bryan Cranton-led drama Wakefield. The film, which debuted at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival back in September of last year, arrives on the home formats in the UK in July. Watch the Wakefield UK Trailer below.

Wakefield UK trailer lands online ahead of a direct-to-digital/ DVD release.

Have you ever just wanted to walk away from it all? And how would your friends and family cope in your absence if you did? Those questions and more are asked in the strikingly original Wakefield, debuting at this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival before arriving on digital platforms on July 28th and DVD from July 31st courtesy of Signature Entertainment.

Successful suburbanite Howard Wakefield (Bryan CranstonBreaking Bad, Trumbo) takes a surprising detour from family life when it all starts to get too much: He vanishes without a trace. Hidden in the attic of his carriage house garage, surviving by scavenging at night, Howard secretly observes the lives of his wife, his children and his neighbours as they learn to live with his unexplained disappearance. But has he left his family, or has he left himself?

A fraught meditation on marriage and identity, Wakefield features a tour de force performance from a never better Cranston in a film that won wide praise following its debut last year at the Toronto International Film Festival. Based on a short story from the legendary American novelist E.L Doctorow and brought to the screen by acclaimed writer/director Robin Swicord (The Jane Austen Book Club, Memoirs Of A Geisha), Wakefield features supporting performances from Jennifer Garner (Dallas Buyer’s Club, Juno), Beverley D’Angelo (Entourage, Cougar Town) and Jason O’Mara (The Good Wife, Marvel’s Agents Of Shield), but make no mistake – this is Cranston’s film, featuring a truly towering performance from one of the most important actors working in film today.

We reviewed the film at Tiff last year, and you can check it out right here.

Everything We Know About ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ So Far

12 hours ago

The recent X-Men movies have been a massive success for 20th Century Fox. Kicking off with X-Men: First Class in 2011, then X-Men: Days Of Future Past three years later, and then last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, the films have grossed a whopping $1.6 billion over the three movies, so it comes at no surprise that the studio are pushing ahead with a fourth film in the series, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which is set to roll into production soon. We thought we’d assemble everything we know about the planned superhero movie so far. Check it all out below.

The Cast

We’ll kick things off with the cast. The good news is that the likes of Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) are all returning for the fourth movie in the series, as will James McAvoy, who once again will play the role of Charles Xavier/ Professor X. Sophie Turner will be playing the role of Jean Grey/ Dark Phoenix are rumours suggest that Jessica Chastain will play the villain in the movie (these rumours are as yet unconfirmed).

Chastain would play the role of Lilandra in the movie. According to the official Marvel Wiki, Lilandra is ‘a member of the royal family of the extraterrestrial Shi’ar Empire, Princess-Majestrix Lilandra Neramani was born on the Shi’ar homeworld known as the Aerie. The eldest heir to the Shi’ar throne was Lilandra’s older sister, Cal’syee. However, for her crime of killing her mother and one of her sisters, Cal’syee was denied the throne and exiled into space. Cal’syee’s younger brother D’ken was appointed majestor (emperor) instead.’

James McAvoy seemingly confirms Jessica Chastain casting. Writing; “P.S I’m not confirming Jess Chastain. Just teasing” #XMenDarkPhoenix pic.twitter.com/gVZleqKeYm

— X-Men Updates (@XMenUpdates) June 17, 2017

Chastain’s addition to the cast would lend it some considerable weight, and we hope her involvement in confirmed in the coming few days.

The Director

Following on from Matthew Vaughn, who helmed ‘First Class’, and Bryan Singer, who took the reigns of ‘Days Of Future Past’ and ‘Apocalypse’, Simon Kinberg will direct Dark Phoenix. Kinberg is a talented individual who has a long-standing relationship with the X-Men franchise. He has written X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse and was a producer on all of those movies, as well as X-Men: First Class, Deadpool and this year’s massive hit Logan. He will also co-produce the upcoming X-Force, Gambit and The New Mutants. X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be his directorial debut, but will all of his experience, the franchise is in very good hands.

‘Dark Phoenix’ will be produced by Simon Kinberg, Hutch Parker, Lauren Shuler Donner and Bryan Singer.

In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s World #1 Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the ‘Battle Of The Sexes’ and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world.

As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles.  The fiercely private King was not only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, as her friendship with Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough) developed.  And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family and wife Priscilla (Elisabeth Shue).  Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.

Battle Of The Sexes also stars also stars Sarah Silverman (Masters of Sex), Bill Pullman (The Equalizer) and Golden Globe® nominee Alan Cumming (The Good Wife).

‘American Crime Story: Versace’ photos land online

15 hours ago

Some new America Crime Story Versace photos have arrived online. The brand new Showtime series, which arrives on our screens in early 2018, is actually titled The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, and stars the likes of Edgar Ramirez as the famous fashion designer, Penelope Cruz as his daughter Donatella, Ricky Martin as Versace’s lover Antonio D’Amico, and Darren Criss as serial killer Andrew Cunanan.

The Verscace photos come courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, who have debuted the shots on the cover of their new issue.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story is the follow-up to the hugely successful, massively popular The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, which premiered in 2016. That series garner a mass of awards nominations and aired on the BBC in the UK, the network which we assumed Versace will debut on sometime next year.

Ryan Murphy, Brad Simpson and Nina Jacobson are executive producers on the new series, and one of its stars, Penelope Cruz, spoke to EW about filming in Versace’s former home, Casa Casuarina.

“It was very moving, sometimes disturbing,” said Cruz. “We all felt a very powerful energy. It just made me have more passion to tell this story.”

Murphy apparently pitched the Versace story before ‘O.J.’ aired.

“I kept going back to Versace because it was different from O.J. tonally,” Murphy told the magazine. “It was a manhunt and it takes place all over the country.” 

“The more I had read about it, the more I was startled by the fact that Cunanan really was only allowed to get away with it because of homophobia,” added Murphy. “There was this great apathy about it, and I think part of that was because it seemed like gay people were disposable in our culture.”

Bookies Offering Odds on the Next James Bond!

20 hours ago

When it is looking highly likely than any Hollywood actor or film character is going to be replaced, as opposed to being killed off, you can bet your bottom Dollar that many betting sites, Sportsbooks and bookmarkers around the globe will be very eager to cash in on such things.

That is certainly the case in regards to the current actor playing the role of James Bond, that being Daniel Craig, and as he will soon be leaving that role not only are there plenty of actors being possibly pencilled in to replace him, many betting companies are offering a betting market on who is likely to replace him as the next 007.

Everyone will of course have their own opinion on who would be best to replace him, and the much loved actress Diane Keaton has gone on record as saying James Norton should be the next James Bond!

What we would encourage you to do if you do fancy placing something of a speculative bet on who will be the next actor to play James Bond is pay a quick visit to bokubettingsites.uk, by doing so you will find a listing of the most trusted betting sites, all of which offer high valued welcome betting bonuses, payout quickly when you win and have some of the most diverse betting opportunities anywhere online!

You will of course need to know the current odds on those actors, actresses and other people who you would never dream of becoming the next 007 are, and with that in mind we will take a look below at the current red hot favourites to replace Craig, and also take a look at some of the more unlikely people to take over from him!

To start with let’s see some of the more ridiculous and outrageous people some betting companies are offering odds on to become the next James Bond.  There are four people who all have odds of 500 to 1 attached to them and they are a mix of sports stars, politicians and singers, those being Robbie Williams, P. Diddy, William Hague and David Beckham!

Whilst there is probably no chance what so ever of any of the above people replacing Daniel there are some people who are at the top of the betting markets that are having some quite substantial amounts placed on them.

The four people who may just land the role, and it will be a very profitable role of course include Tom Hardy whose odds are 4/1, Aidan Turner whose odds are 5/1 as are the odds associated with Idris Elba, and someone else attracting a lot of money include Tom Hiddleston whose odds are currently a fairly generous 6/1.

Now do keep in mind betting companies are not stupid and as such the very second it becomes public knowledge who the next actor will be to replace Daniel Craig their betting markets will be suspended and then closed, so if you do fancy placing such a bet get your bets placed sooner rather than later.

It is however also worth considering placing a  bet on a woman to replace Craig, for there is no guarantees that a man has to play that role, and with that in mind let us now move on to giving you an overview of some women who are mention on quite a number of betting site betting markets!

You will get some massive payout even when betting just a small amount of cash if you place a bet on Helen Mirren landing the role for her current odds are huge at some 175/1, however those odds do of course reflect her chances! If you fancy the chances of Gillian Anderson landing the role the odds attached to her are currently 90/1!

If you do have an interest in both Hollywood, movies in general or anything to do with actors then always keep in mind you will find plenty of unique betting opportunities when you look for them online, and many betting sites offer a range of daily novelty bets.

Just make sure you do not get too tempted by some of the enormous odds being offered one some of those novelty and unusual betting opportunities, for the odds available are always going to reflect the chances of those bets winning!

You will also find that there are quite a number of betting sites that will give you a free no risk type of bet when you sign up to their betting sites and as such if you do fancy having a weird or whacky type of bet then consider making use of some of those free bets, as they will not cost you anything to make use of them, and you never know, with some luck you may just win!

New ‘Saw’ movie gets a new title and logo

21 June 2017 9:01 AM, PDT

For those that are unaware, there is a new Saw movie in some stage of production, due for release later this year. Up until now it has been called Saw: Legacy, but that looks to have changed now to simply Jigsaw.

Due to arrive in cinemas on October 27th Stateside (and UK cinemas a week earlier on October 20th), just in time for Halloween, the film revolves around various dead bodies that begin to turn up all over the city, each meeting their demise in a variety of grisly ways. All investigations begin to point the finger at deceased killer John Kramer, the Jigsaw of the title, and the villain from the previous seven movies.

The horror film is directed by the Spierig brothers (Michael and Peter) and stars Laura Vandervoort (BittenSmallville) and Hannah Anderson (Shoot the MessengerLizzie Borden Took an Ax).

There aren’t too many other details about the film, or indeed if Tobin Bell will return as Kramer, but we do have a flashy new logo courtesy of the studio that has just popped up online. Check that out above.

6 Things That Must Happen In ‘Top Gun 2’

21 June 2017 8:35 AM, PDT

Top Gun 2 is right around the corner. Actually, we should be referring to the film as Top Gun: Maverick, which is the the ‘official title’ revealed by Tom Cruise back last month in an interview just before The Mummy hit cinemas. Of course, the least said about Universal’s first Dark Universe title the better, as the film only managed to pull in $58 million in its opening weekend Stateside. Reviews were poor and the public stayed away sadly, but while it has still managed to pull in around $300 million globally, sources say it will cost the studio around $95 million after publicity costs are added to the film’s reported $125 million budget.

Tom Cruise is being blamed, rightly or wrongly, for his involvement for the film’s dire box-office take, but we’re guessing that he’s not all that bothered considering the films he has in the pipeline. The Cruiser is currently hard at work on Mission: Impossible 6 and, after shooting a bunch of action scenes over in Paris, has moved on to New Zealand to polish off the film’s massive intercontinental shoot. There’s also American Made, an action-drama based on real events, a film directed by Doug Liman, due for release later in the year. Following that should be Top Gun: Maverick, but little has been said yet about the high-octane big-budget Jerry Bruckheimer movie, set to shoot next year.

Here at Thn Towers, we’ve been scratching our heads and thinking what this sequel absolutely must contain to win over the fans, and less importantly, those darned critics.

Get The Right Director

So, obviously a biggie, and a no-brainer. Sadly, the first film’s director is no longer with us. Tony Scott would have celebrated his 73rd birthday on the very day that I am writing this (June 21st), but the director of such modern action classics as Beverly Hills Cop and The Last Boy Scout passed away back in 2012. A worthy successor is still to be found (at the time of writing), and while nobody will replace the filmmaking genius of Scott, producers will have to match the filmmaker’s style and high-octane, well choreographed action set pieces, along with the sun-soaked look that the original so magnificently displayed.

Joseph Kosinski is one filmmaker that has been mentioned in the same breath as Top Gun: Maverick, but while I love his work on Tron: Legacy and even Tom Cruise’s sci-fi movie Oblivion, I can’t help but think he’s the wrong choice for this. I’m going to put my film writing life on the line here and name one person who absolutely would nail a Top Gun movie – this man.

This is Michael Bay. Before you attempt to come ’round and give me a good old kick in the shins, please bear with. The Rock is a magnificent action film. So is Bad Boys, and its sequel; as is Armageddon (I don’t care what you say). Pre-Transformers, nobody could touch Bay for high concept action movies, and its no coincidence that all of those aforementioned movies were produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, who will produce the Top Gun sequel.  I can’t think of a better choice, both in grand filmmaking style and overall look. Bay is the man for the job and I will accept no substitute.

Tom, Give As Much Input As You Like

I have no idea how much influence Tom Cruise has over the movies he appears in. The Mummy supposedly failed because of his alleged meddling, but Tom, you are Maverick, and we’ll always dig you for it, so please, give up as many ideas as you like, but while doing so, leave as much stuff to the guys behind the camera as possible and really trust them. I’m sure you do this anyway, and while I personally don’t believe all the guff we’ve been reading recently, I truly believe Jerry Bruckheimer knows what he’s doing, and now that I’ve officially hired Michael Bay to direct, we’re already on to a winner. Just roll with it.
