Disney CEO reveals Han Solo Star Wars spinoff story details, will span six years

3 hours ago

As production continues on the as-yet-untitled young Han Solo movie, Disney CEO Bob Iger has peeled back the curtain on the second Star Wars Anthology film somewhat, offering up the very first plot details for the May 2018 release.

“It picks up Han Solo when he was 18 years old and takes him through when he was 24. There were a few things that happened [that were] significant in Han Solo’s life, like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee, that will happen in this film. But you’ll also discover how he got his name.”

Iger’s comments about “how he got his name” have certainly sparked speculation among fans: does he mean that Han Solo isn’t the smuggler’s real name, or is he referring to how Han got his reputation as a smuggler and scoundrel?

Meanwhile, appearing on Jimmy Fallon, Woody Harrelson has also spoken briefly about his character, »

Legion Season 1 Episode 7 Review – ‘Chapter Seven’

4 hours ago

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the seventh episode of Legion

Thinking back on when Legion started, how is it that we’ve reached a point in the show where we can say ‘we get it already. Enough with the clarification?’ Syd interrupts Cary’s explanation of the plan because she figured it out for herself. A lot of ‘Chapter 7’ could be interrupted this way and it’s as close as the show’s come to spinning wheels. Legion is making sense. That’s an achievement!

A comedic achievement, too. Where many penultimate episodes go the dramatic route, Legion‘s warms up with Flight of the ConchordsJemaine Clement, and gets a kick out of using Dan Stevens’ British accent to remind Downton Abbey fans they haven’t forgiven him. With Lenny in control and David restricted to a coffin space in his head, it’s not the outward makings of a comedy, »

Assassin’s Creed TV series in development

5 hours ago

A TV adaptation of the popular video game franchise Assassin’s Creed is in development according to Ubisoft.

With the very recent relative failure, financially and critically, of the big screen adaptation of the video game series Assassin’s Creed, one would think that the franchise is done in terms of live action drama.

But apparently this is not the case, as Aymar Azaizia, the head of content for the game over at Ubisoft, has spilled the beans in a recent Reddit Ama about a future television version of the series.

When asked about the prospect, Azaizia didn’t give anything away but did confirm its existence with this response to a fan:

“It’s like the movie guys, we will take our time, to get sure we deliver something we can be proud of, but if you wonder if it’s on our plan… Yes”.

Leaked Deadpool 2 concept art shows Brad Pitt as Cable

5 hours ago

Although it was reported yesterday that Man of Steel star Michael Shannon is set to take on the role (assuming his schedule can be worked out), rumours emerged late last night which suggested that Brad Pitt could also be in contention to play Cable in Deadpool 2, and adding further weight to that is some leaked concept art showing Pitt as Nathan Summers. Check it out here…

If this is official concept art of @deadpoolmovie 2, Pitt looks amazing Af #cable @robertliefeld pic.twitter.com/oD4Ehhao3j

The concept art made its way online via Reddit, and seems to be official as 20th Century Fox has been requesting its removal. The Deadpool franchise does of course have form with leaked material – in fact, the leaked test footage is the entire reason the first movie was dragged out of development hell – so could this concept art have made »

Vision and Scarlet Witch spotted on the set of Avengers: Infinity War

5 hours ago

The cast for the next Avengers movie seems to be unfathomably big. Asinine is a word that comes to mind, but with the gravitas of events, and the threat of our heroes opponent in Thanos, it seems probable that every guy and his dog will be needed to win the day.

So perhaps it’s not particularly surprising to hear that former Tony Stark AI turned bad-ass superhero Vision is involved in the movie, his appearance in Infinity War being confirmed by photos from the Edinburgh set of the film, as has that of Scarlet Witch:

Iron Fist Season 1 Episode 7 Review – ‘Felling Tree with Roots’

6 hours ago

Shaun Munro reviews the seventh episode of Iron Fist

We’ve now reached the mid-way point in Iron Fist‘s run, bringing to an end the batch of episodes that were screened to critics ahead of release day. Will the latter seven episodes indicate an upswing in quality for what has been a rather underwhelming Netflix Original so far?

Well, “Felling Tree with Roots” begins promisingly enough, with a hilarious opening gambit from Harold, where he likens Danny Rand’s more ballyhooed namesake to a sex toy. This is followed by a highly entertaining pre-titles sequence, as Harold and Danny double-team a gang of assailants in gleefully, unsparingly gnarly fashion.

One almost feels like a content warning might’ve been prudent for this episode, because the sight of a man’s face being dismantled with a hammer may be too much for some, especially going by the mostly mild tenor »

Movie Review – T2 Trainspotting (2017)

6 hours ago

T2 Trainspotting. 2017

Directed by Danny Boyle.

Starring Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, Anjela Nedyalkova, James Cosmo, Irvine Welsh, Eileen Nicholas, Kevin McKidd, and Kelly Macdonald.

Synopsis:

After 20 years abroad, Mark Renton returns to Scotland and reunites with his old friends Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie.

Does the world of cinema need a sequel to Trainspotting? Maybe, maybe not; it’s not something worth getting caught up in or debating over because at the end of the day, Academy-Award-winning director Danny Boyle’s (who also helmed the original masterpiece based off of the novel of the same name by Irvine Welsh, and has an ever-growing impressive resume of classic films consisting of Best Picture winner Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours to name a few) 20 years later window into the lives of these addiction fueled, irresistibly watchable characters is another hyperactively directed, stylish, and hypnotic romp through the Scottish junkie lifestyle. »
