Clint Howard's Role in Solo Finally Revealed by Brother Ron Howard

Clint Howard's Role in Solo Finally Revealed by Brother Ron Howard
Ron Howard has included his brother Clint Howard in many of his movies over the years, and Star Wars fans have been wondering since last summer if Clint was going to make an appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story. At the time, Howard told Clint fans that they wouldn't be "disappointed," but never directly confirmed a cameo. That all changed this weekend when the director shared a picture from the editing bay with Clint Howard looking a little out of sorts as a yet to be officially named member of the official Star Wars canon.

Ron Howard shared an image of Clint Howard in Solo, while the production team was putting the final touches on the sound editing. In addition to the announcement of Clint's cameo, Howard also revealed that the movie has now officially wrapped, now that all of the sound editing is complete. Star Wars fans have

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,

Latest Solo Character Posters Introduce Jon Favreau as Rio

With just over one month left until Disney and LucasFilm unleash Solo: A Star Wars Story in theaters, the studio has unveiled nine new character posters that showcases the most important heroes in this galaxy far, far away. These posters include new looks at Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich), Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke), Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), Val (Thandie Newton), Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany), L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) and Rio (Jon Favreau). Hopefully these posters will lead to even more footage being released as we continue the countdown towards the May 25 release.

While we have previously seen these other characters, this latest poster dump offers a new glimpse at Rio, who we haven't seen too much of in the past. It was first revealed by director Ron Howard on Twitter that Jon Favreau is voicing this "important alien character," and it was later revealed that

‘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 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

Antonio Banderas (‘Genius: Picasso’) explains why he was ‘afraid’ to play the famed Spanish artist [Watch]

Antonio Banderas (‘Genius: Picasso’) explains why he was ‘afraid’ to play the famed Spanish artist [Watch]
Antonio Banderas plays Spanish painter Pablo Picasso in the second season of the National Geographic anthology series “Genius,” which premieres on April 24. But this isn’t the first time he has been offered the opportunity to take on the role. He had turned it down before because he was “afraid” to play the famed artist. He explained why during a special Q&A at Sotheby’s Auction House in New York City on Friday, April 20. Watch above.

Banderas was afraid to portray a man who was so “enormous, bigger than life.” The actor’s generation “idolized” Picasso, who was an “icon of freedom” and “exactly the opposite” of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco, who ruled the country from 1939 until his death in 1975. It wasn’t until Banderas was close to his 60s and “grew in experience” that he felt ready to tackle the role. And he trusted Nat Geo to tell the story accurately.

‘Solo’: Alden Ehrenreich Calls ‘Bullsh*t’ on Phil Lord and Chris Miller Exit Rumors, Confirms He Signed Up for Three Films

‘Solo’: Alden Ehrenreich Calls ‘Bullsh*t’ on Phil Lord and Chris Miller Exit Rumors, Confirms He Signed Up for Three Films
Alden Ehrenreich has been front and center in films directed by the Coen brothers and Warren Beatty, but he’s about to be thrown into the global spotlight with the May release of “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” The film is world premiering at Cannes next month after enduring much publicized behind-the-scenes drama. Original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired by Lucasfilm after several months of production and Ron Howard was brought in to finish the film. Ehrenreich addresses the director change in a new Esquire profile.

“From the first screen test on, we played around with it a lot. We tried a lot of different things, rethinking behind the scenes,” Ehrenreich said about Lord and Miller’s style. “That was yielding a different movie than the other factions wanted. I knew what I was doing, but in terms of what that adds up to, you’re so

Genius: Picasso Star Antonio Banderas on the Importance of Not Failing the Truth About the Iconic Artist

Genius: Picasso Star Antonio Banderas on the Importance of Not Failing the Truth About the Iconic Artist
Antonio Banderas is playing one of his heroes. No, not the swashbuckling masked swordsman named Zorro, but Pablo Picasso in Genius: Picasso, the second install of National Geographic Channel's Genius anthology series. Banderas said, "The sense of responsibility represents kind of a burden on my shoulders." The Emmy and Golden Globe nominee said he was escaping the role for years until somebody with the expertise of executive producer Ron Howard and a platform like National Geographic Channel with "credibility" and "prestige" came into the picture. "It's important when you do a biopic to have that security that what you're doing is actually based on facts because you're...

'Han Solo' Star Alden Ehrenreich Says He's Been Signed for Three Films

'Han Solo' Star Alden Ehrenreich Says He's Been Signed for Three Films
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller may have had a different style of moviemaking than what studio brass had in mind for Solo: A Star Wars Story, but that doesn't mean they were making a bad film, star Alden Ehrenreich explained in a cover story with Esquire.

The 28-year-old actor cleared up some rumors that plagued the Star Wars installment's production after news got out that the directing duo had been fired for clashing with producer Kathleen Kennedy and writer Lawrence Kasdan.

Oscar-winning director Ron Howard was brought in to take over the picture last summer.

“They had a different style...

Solo: A Star Wars Story Star Defends Original Directors

Lucasfilm’s Lawless Rogues Assemble For Solo: A Star Wars Story Character Posters

Han Solo, Qi’Ra, and the ice-cool Lando Calrissian.

That’s just three of the core characters underpinning Solo: A Star Wars Story, and thanks to Lucasfilm’s latest media dump (spoilers: it’s a raft of sun-kissed character posters), we now have a chance to get acquainted with the rest of the crew, beginning with Woody Harrelson’s Tobias Beckett.

Said to be something of a mentor figure to the young, untrained Han, Harrelson’s infamous crook will no doubt prove instrumental all throughout our smuggler’s origin story. It’s one that involves a daring heist, too, which goes some way to explaining how the likes of Val (Thandie Newton), Dryden Vos (Infinity War‘s Paul Bettany) and Emilia Clarke’ Qi’Ra fit into the plot.

Their mission? We’re not quite sure, but we’d wager it has something to do with the Conveyex and its precious

New ‘Solo’ Character Posters Highlight the Heist Crew

Ron Howard‘s Solo: A Star Wars Story is a little more than a month away from opening in theaters nationwide. The film will follow Han Solo’s story pre-a New Hope. A new series of character posters have been released by Disney and they highlight the heist crew that Beckett (Woody Harrelson) put together. The posters for the core members Han (Alden Ehrenreich), Chewie, Lando (Donald Glover) and Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke) look pretty much the same as the first series of posters which were allegedly plagiarized from a French artist. The poses for those characters have not changed much but the background has. Along with the heist crew there’s also a poster for the villain of the film Dryden, played by Paul Bettany. Check them out below.

New ‘Solo’ Character Posters Highlight Supporting Players Like Val, Rio, and Dryden

Disney has released nine new characters posters for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Ron Howard’s upcoming film follows the origin of Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) as he teams up with a crew to pull off a heist. These character posters help highlight some of the supporting characters like Val, Rio, and Dryden, but I’m a bit dismayed we don’t get an actor name for Chewbacca. Joonas Suotamo is now the man in the Chewbacca suit, so why doesn’t he get his credit? Are we supposed to be like, “And starring Chewbacca as himself!” They didn’t …

Solo: A Star Wars Story makes the jump to light speed in a high-octane adventure that navigates the perils of a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, forges new friendships that will last a lifetime, and reveals untold secrets from the hidden past of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes. Han Solo meets loyal co-pilot Chewbacca and notorious gambler Lando Calrissian for the first time, bound by a desperate mission against impossible odds that
