Ron Howard teases the Kessel Run with new Han Solo Star Wars set photo

2 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from yesterday’s behind-the-scenes images, director Ron Howard has now taken to Twitter to share another photo from the set of Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, which he posted with the caption “spicy”.

Given the caption, it’s probably safe to assume that this is an entrance to the spice mines of Kessel, a labour camp where various species including Wookiees were used as slaves to mine spice – a mineral turned into a dangerous drug. Han Solo is of course renowned for making the Kessel Run – a hyperspace route used by smugglers to move spice from the mines – in the Millennium Falcon in “less than twelve parsecs”, something we’re presumably going to see play out on screen in the Anthology movie.

Snyder Not Coming Back For Justice League

Despite the rumours that Zack Snyder would return to the set of Justice League to help Joss Whedon finish the reshoots, it looks like the director has stepped aside for good. “I’m at a place where I feel excited about it and I’m happy for my guys and I love these people that are working on it, and they’re my family and I think they’re doing an amazing job,” he told Wired. “But I’ve kind of just let them do their thing.” Read more here.

Congratulations To Homecoming

There are a couple more superhero movies in the pipeline for 2017, but Spider-Man: Homecoming officially holds the title of the most successful of the year for now. Thanks in no small part to its solid opening in China, the film has overtaken Wonder Woman and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with $861.8 million worldwide. »

Spice Mines of Kessel Teased in Latest Look at Han Solo

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Han Solo is continuing to shoot in the U.K., with director Ron Howard sharing more teases from behind the scenes. Over the weekend, he shared a photo of actor Paul Bettany as the actor wrapped his role. Today, we have a photo that could teases an iconic location. Ron Howard sent out this photo from the set, which doesn't feature any obvious spoilers. But it does features an entrance to a cave, with most speculating that this is our first ever look at the often heard about Spice Mines of Kessel. Ron Howard didn't come right out and say this is one of the caves of Kessel, but his cryptic tweet was enough to raise eyebrows.

The photo surfaced on the official Ron Howard Twitter this afternoon, with the director tweeting one word, "Spicey?" The spice mines of Kessel were first mentioned by C-3Po in A New Hope, »

The Preview Reel: New Lego, Spy, and Horror Movies

11 hours ago | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Welcome to this week’s “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide-release movies. The horror film It dominated the box office again last weekend as two new releases struggled to find their audience. It would appear though that the two-week reign for the Stephen King adaption is about to end as two high-profile releases (The Lego Ninjago Movie and Kingsman: The Golden Circle) and one small budget horror flick (Friend Request) hit screens. All three movies seem to be targeting different demographics, but which one is best for you? Let’s find out.

The Lego Ninjago Movie

What we are excited about: The Lego Movie franchise has turned out surprisingly good animated films. The Lego Movie was arguably the best animated movie of 2014, even though it was completely snubbed at the Oscars, and this year’s The Lego Batman Movie was an enjoyable riff on the classic comic book hero. »

‘Star Wars’: Ron Howard Teases “Spicey” Set From Han Solo Film

12 hours ago | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Ron Howard seems to be having a good time since taking over the directing reins of the upcoming Han Solo film. He recently posted a photo of the famous Kessel Run from the set with the caption “Spicey?” The caption and the Kessel Run might be totally foreign to many, but for Star Wars diehards, the reference is crystal clear. In the original Star Wars, Harrison Ford’s Han Solo says, “You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon?…It’s the ship that made the Kessel Run in… »

It appears Star Wars fans are finally going to see the Millennium Falcon's famous Kessel Run. 

Ron Howard on Wednesday tweeted a photo that shows an entrance to a cave with one word: "Spicey?" 

Han Solo, of course, made the famous Kessel Run in a record-breaking (fewer than) 12 parsecs, which the character bragged about in A New Hope

The Run is a hyperspace route which smugglers use to move spice from the mines on Kessel. 

It seems Howard is once more giving fans a slight taste of what is to come without really giving away much at all. Ever since the »

Linda Hamilton to Return as Sarah Connor in New Terminator

16 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

One of movie's original badasses is returning to the brand she helped make famous!  See below for more information on Linda Hamilton returning to the Terminator franchise!

She was only in two movies but it's apparent how vital Linda Hamilton's presence was for the Terminator franchise.  After Terminator 2: Judgement Day (arguably the best one), the franchise took quite a hit with several flops, including Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and, more recently, Terminator: Genisys.

Now, 20th Century Fox, Skydance, and Paramount are at it again, but this time they plan on bringing back the original team to help revitalize the series.  James Cameron was already brought on board to be a producer/consultant, while Arnold Schwartzeneggar seems always game for another Terminator revival, the only original member missing was Sarah Connor.

Thankfully, during a private event, Cameron made the announcement that Linda Hamilton will be reprising »

Paramount is Pissed at J.J. Abrams For Dumping Them (Again) To Make Another ‘Star Wars’ Movie

Sometimes the ripple effects of a big decision made in a Hollywood studio can be felt all over town. Case in point: when it was announced that writer/director/producer J.J. Abrams would be swooping back over to Disney and Lucasfilm to take over for the ousted Colin Trevorrow on Star Wars: Episode 9, that meant he was leaving […]

Paramount Could Sue J.J. Abrams for Directing Star Wars 9

17 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars 9 is back on track, with director J.J. Abrams stepping in to replace fired director Colin Trevorrow. The studio has issued a new December 20, 2019 release date, and the project seems heading in the right direction. However, J.J. Abrams' sudden emergence at the helm of this franchise finale was a direct breach of his contract that was re-negotiated at Paramount after he left to direct the 2015 blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens. A new report reveals that Paramount was "jilted" when he left to direct Star Wars 9, which lead to Paramount extracting a small sum of money for their troubles, but not nearly what the studio's overall deal with the director is worth.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that newly-minted Paramount chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos was not pleased that J.J. Abrams was "poached" yet again by Disney to direct this highly-anticipated Star Wars sequel, but he ultimately accommodated the deal, »

Paramount Is Purportedly None Too Pleased With J.J. Abrams Helming Star Wars: Episode IX

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Given the chance, few filmmakers would turn down the dream of one day directing a Star Wars movie, and fewer still would refuse that offer twice.

And yet, The Force Awakens helmer J.J. Abrams found himself in that exact position earlier this month. With Colin Trevorrow off Star Wars: Episode IX entirely, it didn’t take long before Lucasfilm came calling. The vocation? An opportunity to journey back to that galaxy far, far away and essentially close the circle in this current Star Wars trilogy. Abrams accepted, and the rest is history.

But as The Hollywood Reporter reveals, Paramount and CEO Jim Gianopulos were none too pleased with the decision. Since his work on Mission: Impossible 3, J.J. Abrams had struck a deal with Paramount that resulted in such lucrative blockbusters as Super 8 and a pair of rebooted Star Trek movies. Said to worth $10 million a year when accounting for overheads and development, »

"Thunderball" co-stars Martine Beswick and Luciana Paluzzi.

Hammer and "Live and Let Die" actress Madeleine Smith.

By Mark Mawston

The London Film Convention, organized by Thomas Bowington was quite literally a Who’s Who of heroes and villains from the small and silver screen. The actual Who came in the shape of a Dr. himself in the guise of Sylvester McCoy, along with Who assistants Katy Manning who played Jo and Bernard Cribbins from both the Amicus film version and the TV version. There was also a rare appearance from Garial Woolf. The other key cult British film genres-the Carry On films, James Bond and Hammer horror- were all represented too, with many of the star guests appearing in all three: from the Carry On Films we had Fenella Fielding, Anita Harris and Amanda Barrie, from Hammer and Bond we had Maddie Smith, Valerie Leon, Martine Beswick, Eunice Gayson, John Wyman, »

Disney Breaks Down The ‘Science Of Star Wars’ In Its New Web Series

21 hours ago | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Star Wars may be set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, but its fantastical elements can be recreated in our world, and a new web series is doing exactly that. Disney and Lucasfilm have launched the first episode of Science of Star Wars, which engineers real-life versions of iconic Star Wars items.

The first episode of Science of Star Wars deals with the gadget that is arguably Star Wars' most legendary creation: the lightsaber. Host Anthony Carboni, who we used to see around Revision3 back in the day, leads viewers through a science lesson that ultimately likens the destructive power of the Jedi weapon to that of a modern-day plasma cutter. With some help from his guests, including actor Taylor Gray of the Star Wars Rebels TV series, YouTube Alan Pan of Sufficiently Advanced, and the computer Watson (who represents series sponsor Ibm), Carboni conducts »
