She also includes what may be a subtle dig at her former directors: “I struggled with Qi’ra quite a lot,” Clarke says of her character. “I was like: ‘Y’all need to stop telling me that she’s ‘film noir,’ because that ain’t a note.’” One might reasonably assume that the “y’all” in question are Lord and Miller.
“When it comes to that amount of money, you’re almost waiting for that to happen,” Clarke adds of what went down. “Money fucks us all up, doesn’t it? There’s so much pressure. Han Solo is a really beloved character.
“Solo” earned about $35.6 million through Friday, including $14.1 million from Thursday grosses, the highest Thursday for a Memorial Day opener. But a $114 million opening would have “Solo” trailing the three-day debut of the last anthology film, “Rogue One,” by $41 million — to say nothing of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s” $220 million opening.
De la Huerta currently lives in France, but plans to return to New York in order to be interviewed by prosecutors. “Anything that will put him in jail will make me happy, but it’s important to me that my voice is heard. I’m happy we’re closer to justice. But I feel my case is being overlooked and not taken as seriously, and that upsets me,” she adds.
“It’s complicated. Part of me is very happy, and part of me is sad.
There’s something about the last minute reveal at the end of Solo: A Star Wars Story that feels at once inevitable and surprising. It's an unexpected lurch towards the Marvel Studios model of cinematic universes that goes beyond the Easter Eggs of earlier movies, and towards a school of thought that expects audiences to watch every movie in the series in case of unexpected crossovers. Despite its troubled production, does Solo point to the future of Star Wars movies?
For the majority of its runtime, Solo behaves like a traditional Star Wars movie of the Disney ...
Solo: A Star Wars Story holds an interesting position on the border between familiar, well-known territory and a brave new world, as the first film in the franchise not to feature any members of the Skywalker family. While Solo is easily the installment least interested in exploring the nature of the Force, there are other ways in which the film sticks closely to tried and true Star Wars narrative formulas. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the character of Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson). Ever since the very beginning, with Leia’s (Carrie ...
“NCIS” alum Perrette, who alluded to multiple physical assaults after exiting the CBS procedural earlier this month, advised the media that there will be consequences for crossing boundaries.
In a tweet published early Friday, Perrette wrote, “Hey tabloids and ‘reporters,’ Leave me alone I Will have you arrested for trespassing on my property.”
Perrette added, “If I decide to talk, it’s on My Terms!”
"Also being a mother, if I go away, it really has to be something I'm attracted to, because when ...
The concept of captivity as a breeding ground for romance seems ripe for a #BelleToo response. And however eagerly we await the beast’s screen redemption, surely all the psychological think-pieces of the last few years have disabused us of believing clinical narcissism is even remotely a curable condition. As for the idea that the west wing is the most treacherous place a person could venture… well, okay, that one still holds.
But the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken could sell us on anything, and
I felt bad for Ehrenreich because it’s not his fault that some executive board meeting signed off on

Current estimates have the latest “Star Wars” making $35.8 million on Friday from 4,381 screens. That includes $14.1 million from Thursday previews, the best ever for a Memorial Day weekend release.
By Memorial Day standards, “Solo” is doing quite well. If this projection were to hold, Ron Howard’s space heist would be sitting around the $117 million four-day start made five years ago by “Fast & Furious 6” and have one of the top five best opening weekends for a Memorial Day release.

But by “Star Wars” standards, “Solo” is not performing up to past installments. A four-day result of $115 million would be 25 percent down from the $155 million
The fascinating thing about an intellectual property as sprawling as “Star Wars” is how it can build on itself via commentary on its own internal lore. That’s unique, and only possible for a brand with generations of adulation behind it.
Case in point: Han Solo shooting first. When George Lucas altered the original “Star Wars” in 1997 to depict Harrison Ford’s scruffy-looking smuggler firing on the alien Greedo in self-defense, rather than preemptively dispensing with a threat, fans lost their minds. It was an affront, the neutering of a badass.
As recently as 2015, Lucas was still defending his decision. To him, Solo was a cowboy in the John Wayne mold, therefore honorable. The hero

What’s in a name? Family heritage? Self-pride? Identity? Rich, subtextual meaning intended to define a character’s nature on first introduction? If you’re a Star Wars fan, and if you’ve been wondering for years or decades about the etymology of Han Solo’s cognomen, rejoice: Solo: A Star Wars Story reveals the truth behind his surname, though after wondering for so long, the movie’s answer probably isn’t the answer you’re hoping for, a creative contrivance that’s less the former, more the latter. Nothing’s worse than ...
