New Solo International Trailer Takes Han Prisoner

Buckle up for some more Solo footage. Disney and Lucasfilm have just revealed a German trailer for the upcoming Star Wars standalone movie, which offers new shots, including a good amount of Paul Bettany's villain, Dryden Vos. As of right now, there is no real indication that Dryden Vos has any relation to the Jedi Quinlan Vos, but given that we see Bettany's character wielding some bladed weapons, don't be surprised if we get some sort of canon connection in the actual movie.

While this Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer is entirely in German, the lines spoken by Dryden Vos translate to, "Give me a reason not to kill you" and "You will have to be careful for the rest of your life," according to the fan site Star Wars News Net. Beyond that, there are a few select action shots and landscape shots that are new. Nothing mind-blowingly significant,

Harrison Ford Takes on First Animated Movie in Secret Life of Pets 2

Harrison Ford Takes on First Animated Movie in Secret Life of Pets 2
Harrison Ford has landed his first ever role in an animated movie. The 75-year-old actor has officially boarded the cast of The Secret Life of Pets 2. According to a new report, Ford will be voicing the lead character in the upcoming animated sequel. The first movie's lead character was voiced by comedian Louis C.K. However, Illumination Entertainment parted ways with the star following a bunch of sexual misconduct allegations last year.

It's rather amazing that Harrison Ford, whose career as an actor spans more than 50 years and includes major roles in legendary franchises like Star Wars and Indiana Jones, has never voiced a role in an animated movie. This is a huge get for The Secret Life of Pets 2, especially since he isn't just voicing a small character in the movie. He's going to be the lead, which raises some questions about the direction this movie is heading.

Harrison Ford Joins The Secret Life Of Pets 2 In His First Animation Role
For the first time in his film career, Harrison Ford is joining an animated feature. Ford will lead the cast in The Secret Life of Pets 2, the sequel to the successful CGI film.

Beyond C.K.'s absence, much of the cast from the original film will be reprising their roles. The film's script will be written by Minions writer Brian Lynch, and Despicable Me's Chris Renaud will direct.

No details have been released regarding Ford's character, so we can only speculate on the pet he will play. Does anyone have any guesses?

Solo: A Star Wars Story’s Alden Ehrenreich has a three-film deal as Han Solo

In a month’s time, Star Wars will return to the big screen as Disney and Lucasfilm unleash their second Anthology spinoff movie Solo: A Star Wars Story, which explores the backstory to everyone’s favourite smuggler Han Solo.

Alden Ehrenreich is stepping into Harrison Ford’s shoes as a young version of the future Rebel hero, and during an interview with THR, the actor has revealed that he actually has a three-film contract with Lucasfilm: “I don’t know if that’s officially, uh, public. But — yeah.”

It’s worth noting that just because he has a three-film deal, it doesn’t necessarily mean Lucasfilm has any plans for three Han Solo movies. Multi-film deals are typically standard, and it also opens up the possibility for him to appear in other Anthology tales – the rumoured Boba Fett and Jabba the Hutt movies, for example.

Of course, if Solo proves to be a big hit,

Harrison Ford and Tiffany Hddish will join the cast of next year’s sequel to “The Secret Life of Pets,” Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri announced at Universal’s CinemaCon presentation.

Released in summer 2016, “Secret Life” grossed $875 million world wide and set a record for the biggest opening weekend for an original title.

We Might Get More Young Han Solo Movies

We’re one month away from the release of the next Star Wars movie. Solo: A Star Wars Story is the latest supposed standalone installments of the franchise, separate from the "Skywalker Saga" episodes released in alternate years. Solo focuses on the early years of Han Solo with a recast Alden Ehrenreich in the role made famous by Harrison Ford. We’ll now get to see what the "stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf Herder" was like and what he was doing before he and Chewbacca met up with Luke, the droids and Obi-Wan in the original movie. Now we’re hearing that it might not be the only installment to present the character’s backstory. Erhrenreich himself let it slip in a new interview with Esquire that he’s signed for three...

Alden Ehrenreich reveals he is set to return to the role of Han Solo for two more Star Wars movies

Solo: A Star Wars story has yet to hit our cinemas, but the actor playing the young Han Solo, Alden Ehrenreich, has had a bout of the Tom Holland’s; he has let slip he will be returning to the role of Han Solo in two more Star Wars projects.

During an interview with Esquire, Ehrenreich let slip he had signed up for three movies as the younger version of the character made famous by Harrison Ford. After being asked how many he has signed up for he replied “Three” before realising he may have just got himself into trouble with Lucasfilm, “I don’t know if that’s officially, uh, public. But—yeah.”

So for anyone thinking his outing may have been just a one-off, we can now expect him to develop the character further. Whether it will be in further spin-offs or sequels to Solo isn’t clear.

Attention, Hollywood: Here Are the Women We Want to See as Indiana Jones

The fifth Indiana Jones movie doesn't begin filming until April 2019. However, director Steven Spielberg is already raising hopes for the future of the franchise by acknowledging that it may be time for a female Indiana Jones.

In an interview with UK news outlet The Sun, Spielberg stated: "This will be Harrison Ford's last Indiana Jones movie, I am pretty sure, but it will certainly continue after that."

When asked if he'd consider a female for the role, the director nodded in the affirmative, saying, "And there would be nothing wrong with that."

While Spielberg didn't elaborate on his intentions to develop Indy's feminine side, the role is one that requires charm, humor, gravitas, fight skills, and enough maturity to have earned a PhD. With those thoughts in mind, let's count down the 10 women we'd love to see utter the catchphrase, "Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?"

Harrison Ford Voices First Animation Role In Secret Life of Pets 2

Harrison Ford has joined Illumination’s The Secret Life Of Pets 2 for his first-ever role in an animated feature. Though he’s well into his seventies now, Ford shows no signs of slowing down as an actor. In fact, Ford treated audiences to arguably his best performance in years in 2017’s Blade Runner 2049, where he reprised the role of Rick Deckard, which he originated in 1982’s Blade Runner.

Alden Ehrenreich Might Have Just Spilled Major News About 2 More Han Solo Movies

It seems like we've been waiting years for the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, which finally hits theaters on May 25. This stand-alone Star Wars film will be Alden Ehrenreich's first time portraying Han Solo, and it turns out it might be the first of several times we'll see him in the role. The actor appears to have spilled the beans - perhaps a little too early - about more movies in Esquire's May cover story.

When Esquire spoke with Ehrenreich about all things Harrison Ford and green-juice delivery (the man has varied interests), the publication asked him how many Star Wars movies he'd signed up for. "Three," Ehrenreich said. He quickly followed up his answer with a bit of hesitation, saying, "I don't know if that's officially, uh, public. But - yeah." Oops? It's definitely public now!

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ CinemaCon Footage Shows Han Meeting Lando

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ CinemaCon Footage Shows Han Meeting Lando
Disney unveiled footage Tuesday from its upcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” with a key scene between Alden Ehrenreich’s young Han Solo and Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian.

The clip, shown to theater owners at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, showed the first encounter between the duo at a rundown and dingy cantina on a snowy planet with an array of other characters, including a creature with more than a dozen eyes. Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra character explains to Solo that Calrissian won his ship playing a card game, prompting Solo to promise that he’ll beat him — and then proceeding to do so.

The footage ended with both men wagering their spaceships and Calrissian warning, “You might want to quit while you’re ahead.”

The name of the ship was not unveiled, but in “Star Wars” lore, the original owner of the Millennium Falcon was Calrissian, and Solo

Alden Ehrenreich Confirmed He Has A 3 Picture Deal With Lucasfilm

Looks like Alden Ehrenreich's Star Wars film won't be a "solo," endeavor. The lead of Solo: A Star Wars Story confirmed to Esquire (via Cbr) he's on the line for three films. His reveal, hilariously enough, came out in an oddly Han Solo way:

Three. I don’t know if that’s officially, uh, public. But — yeah.

So what are we talking about here? Can we expect two more Solo standalone films, or is Ehrenreich going to be featured in a Han Solo flashback in future flagship Star Wars films? Ehrenreich didn't say, but if we had to guess we're assuming Lucasfilm is waiting to see how Solo does in theaters before it commits to any more sequels.

If you had to see Ehrenreich portray Solo in more films, would you rather they be contained adventures like Solo, or would you be ok with him playing post-original trilogy Han in place of Harrison Ford?

Alden Ehrenreich Has a 3-Movie Deal as Han Solo

Alden Ehrenreich Has a 3-Movie Deal as Han Solo
It looks like we may be seeing more young Han Solo showing up in the future. Alden Ehrenreich is set to portray the legendary smuggler in Solo: A Star Wars Story, which arrives in theaters next month. While there are a lot of questions marks about that movie specifically and the future of the Star Wars franchise, Lucasfilm is prepared to bring Ehrenreich back as Han Solo, as the actor has confirmed he has a three movie deal with the studio.

Alden Ehrenreich has some very big shoes to fill. Really, it's hard to imagine bigger shoes to fill than taking up the mantle of Harrison Ford's Han Solo, but that's what the 28-year-old actor has on his shoulders. In a recent interview leading up to the release of Solo, Ehrenreich was asked about his deal with Lucasfilm. He was clearly a bit unsure if he was supposed to

Alden Ehrenreich on All the Real and Rumored Solo: A Star Wars Story Drama

Alden Ehrenreich on All the Real and Rumored Solo: A Star Wars Story Drama
Ironically, Alden Ehrenreich is quite unlike Harrison Ford. For starters, he reveals a lot in interviews. In Esquire's May issue, for example, he addresses everything from directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller leaving Solo: A Star Wars Story at the end of production to rumors that his performance was so unwatchable he required an acting coach. Lord and Miller left the project over "creative differences," according to Lucasfilm, and neither has said much else about their eleventh hour exit. According to Ehrenreich, their unorthodox process "was yielding a different movie than the other factions wanted." From the initial screen test, he said, "We played around with it a lot." Ehrenreich...
