Emilia Clarke Tells Fallon About Working With a Wookee in New Star Wars Film

Emilia Clarke does her best impression of a Wookiee from the “Star Wars” movies on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Let’s just say she butchered it. Clarke stars in the upcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” a one-off prequel to the “Star Wars” series that focuses on the backstory of Han Solo, a major character in the early movies. The cast also includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo and Paul Bettany.

Possible Plot Details For Zombieland 2 Include Super-Zombies And A Race Against The Clock

Your prayers to the Movie Gods have been answered: Zombieland 2 is officially moving forward at Colombia Pictures. Or should that be Zombieland, Too?

Over at The Splash Report, a source familiar with the undead sequel has unveiled what amounts to a lengthy plot synopsis, one which teases super-zombies and a possible time jump.

All of our core survivors will return to the fray, too, including Woody Harrelson’s Tallahassee, Jesse Eisenberg’s Columbus, Emma Stone’s Wichita, and Abigail Breslin’s Little Rock, and it would seem their next adventure largely involves searching for the latter character, after she ran away with an unknown individual.

All of this (and more!) is outlined within the below extract, which alleges Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick’s screenplay for Zombieland 2 Zombieland, Too carves out new ground in the admittedly oversaturated zombie genre by asking the question: what if we ran out of zombies?

Donald Glover open to a Lando movie after Solo: A Star Wars Story

Donald Glover has expressed an interest in a Lando anthology movie after Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Solo is now only days away, with fans soon able to see the much speculated about film and Glover’s performance as a young Lando Calrissian. Regarding what comes after Solo, there have also been rumours lately that Lucasfilm is planning a solo Lando film – the studio, however, has since thrown water on this.

But what does Glover think of the idea? Would he be interested in starring in his own movie about the adventures of Lando? He was asked about the possibility when sitting down with EW:

“It would always be fun to be Lando again. I would love to do it again. It’s really fun. The movie, I feel like, is wide open. This part of the universe without the… I feel like with the Skywalkers, it’s hard,

Solo’s Alden Ehrenreich would like to see a Star Wars movie set during the Old Republic

Alden Ehrenreich, star of Solo: A Star Wars Story, has revealed that he would like to see a Star Wars film set during the Old Republic.

The Old Republic has been a time period that fans have wanted to see explored on film for years but so far have yet to have their wish fulfilled. With all the new Star Wars movies on the way, the hope is that one of these will focus on this fascinating time in Star Wars history.

Alden Ehrenreich, who stars as Han in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, is also someone who wants to see the Old Republic come to the big screen, telling CinemaBlend that he’s got a personal interest in seeing a film based on the Republic Scout Service:

Zombieland 2 Timeline Revealed by Writers

Zombieland 2 is going to be making a bit of a time jump. It was recently announced by writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick that the long-awaited sequel is (hopefully) on track to shoot early next year in time for release in October 2019, which would see it released almost exactly a decade after its predecessor. Now, the writing duo has confirmed that Zombieland 2 won't take place right after the events of the first movie. Instead, we're going to move forward by at least a few years.

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick recently did a Reddit Ama in order to promote the release of Deadpool 2. During the course of the Ama, someone asked about Zombieland 2. While they couldn't say too much about it at the present time, they did reveal that the sequel won't be picking up directly after the first movie ended. As they explain, that's more of a practicality,

Solo: A Star Wars Story suggests that Han shot first

The writers of Solo: A Star Wars Story have ensured that their film gives the impression that Han shot first.

One of the most discussed moments in the original Star Wars trilogy is the scene where Han kills Greedo in A New Hope. In the theatrical version, Han shoots the bounty hunter first but George Lucas has since changed events to show that Greedo actually fires on Han, causing Solo to fire back.

This has been a huge point of contention as it directly speaks to Han’s character and the writers of Solo have revealed that they are on the ‘Han shot first’ team, having written a scene for the film that touches on this moment.

Speaking to Uproxx, the writers reveal that they made a deliberate attempt to return Han to his initial portrayal:“Yeah. It was very important to me, like top of the list” Lawrence Kasdan admitted,

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” is a fun origin story set in a galaxy far far away

Hollywood Heroes™: Among cinematic characters, there’s almost no one out there who matches the love that has been bestowed upon Han Solo. What Harrison Ford did with that part for George Lucas and company is the stuff of history and legend. So, having someone new take on the role was always going to be a tricky thing for Disney and LucasFilm to pull off. After all, Solo: A Star Wars Story is the first time since the franchise re-emerged where they’ve really gone and recast one of their beloved players. Throw in the turmoil behind the scenes and there was a chance that this could have been a mess. Luckily, that’s not the case. Opening this week, Solo: A Star Wars Story is disposable and completely unnecessary, but it’s also a ton of fun. The good definitely outweighs the bad here. The film is an

‘Solo’ Clips, TV Spots & Featurettes Tout New Footage; Behind the Scenes Glimpses

Disney has released a boatload of new Clips, TV Spots & Featurettes to promote the release of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story‘ later this week. After all of the behind the scenes shenanigans from the making of the film, the marketing campaign hit a slump when Disney was accused of plagarizing poster designs for the film, prompting a new set of character posters to be released. Since then it’s been smooth sailing for the film, with a successful premiere last week and decent word of mouth.

Indeed, it seems that Disney has found the right way to market the film with all of these promotional materials by focusing on the character interactions and amping up the “Fun” factor that the film seems to have. By all accounts, star Alden Ehrenreich does a serviceable job of inhabiting everyone’s favorite intergalactic smuggler, but the real highlight of the film seems to be Donald Glover as Lando.

Donald Glover reveals Billy Dee Williams’ reaction to his Lando portrayal, new Solo: A Star Wars Story TV spot revealed

We’re just a few days away from the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Donald Glover has been chatting to Comic Book about taking on the iconic role of Lando Calrissian, revealing the reaction of the original smooth-talking scoundrel, Billy Dee Williams, to his portrayal of the character.

“He texted me,” said Glover. “He said ‘You did a good job.’ That was all I wanted, all I needed. It definitely made me feel like I didn’t let him down. He was such an iconic figure in the first one, in The Empire Strikes Back, that I definitely didn’t want to let him down.”

Although the Lando torch has been passed, fans will be hoping that we get to see Billy Dee Williams making his own return to the galaxy far, far away in Star Wars: Episode IX, having sat out both The Force Awakens and

Exclusive: Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton & Ron Howard discuss the change of direction in Solo: A Star Wars Story

There were doubts concerning the latest venture into a galaxy, far, far away – as Solo: A Star Wars story went through a change of director halfway through the shoot, swapping duo Christopher Miller and Phil Lord for the reliable hands of Ron Howard. We’ve seen the film and can say now it wasn’t a detrimental move – and when we had the pleasure of interviewing Howard himself, as well as stars Woody Harrelson and Thandie Newton, we asked about the impact this shift in tone and approach had on the production.

Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer would like to pen a Lando Anthology movie

Last week it was reported – erroneously – that Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy had announced that the next Star Wars Anthology movie would focus on the character of Lando Calrissian, who makes his grand return to the big screen this week in Solo: A Star Wars Story, played by Donald Glover.

As it turned out, Kennedy had been misquoted, with a Lucasfilm rep clarifying that such a project is not in the works, but “we would love to tell a story about Lando Calrissian one day.” Well, should that happen, Solo co-writer Jonathan Kasdan has thrown his hat into the ring to be involved, telling Screen Rant that a Lando movie is one of his dream projects.

“First of all I’m dying to see a Lando film,” said Kasdan. “I would help in anyway I was asked to. I think that’s a great movie. I mean, I think you know

Sequel ends reign of Avengers: Infinity War.
