Solo: A Star Wars Story Review

Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars Story fulfills advertised requirements with a workman’s attitude. You’ll meet young Han Solo, and it’s most certainly a Star Wars movie. That’s made abundantly clear by every wink-wink, nudge-nudge towards the future escapades of Lucasfilm’s famously roguish smuggler. But past that generic withstanding? You won’t find much. Mainly because Howard’s murky and uninteresting visual “spectacle” suffers the unfortunate fate of following Rian Johnson’s cosmically picturesque The Last Jedi. It’s not even fair to compare the two on cinematic appeal, but such is the precarious position Star Wars has stuck viewers in.

Nevertheless, Solo ushers in Alden Ehrenreich’s reign as interplanetary grifter Han “I Shot First” Solo. You’ll breeze through his time spent as an Empire pilot/footsoldier, cherish Chewbacca’s (Joonas Suotamo) first reveal, witness the

Netflix's Little Evil Trailer: Adam Scott Adopts the Antichrist

Netflix's Little Evil Trailer: Adam Scott Adopts the Antichrist
The Antichrist is here in Netflix's upcoming horror comedy Little Evil. Another original outing for the streaming service, it stars Adam Scott and Evangeline Lilly in a hilarious new take on The Omen. Arriving just in time for the fall season, Little Evil will debut on September 1st.

From writer/director Eli Craig (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil); Adam Scott (Big Little Lies, Parks & Rec) and Evangeline Lilly (Ant-Man, Lost) star in this offbeat comedy about love, family, and the Antichrist. Gary has just married the love of his life, Samantha, and is now the stepfather to her quirky 5 year old son, Lucas (Owen Atlas). But he soon finds himself in increasingly odd situations around the child, which drives him to believe his new stepson may actually be the spawn of Satan.

Also starring in the movie are Donald Faison, Bridget Everett, and Chris D'Elia. The movie was produced by Jason Michael Berman,

Clint Eastwood Is Returning to Acting

Clint Eastwood Is Returning to Acting
Clint Eastwood is one of those rare Hollywood stars who is a legend both in front of and behind the camera. While he's best known to most audiences as an actor, with decades of iconic performances, but he has also established himself as one of our finest filmmakers as well. In recent years, the multi-hyphenate has focused his energies more on filmmaking and less in acting, with his last on screen performance coming in his 2012 baseball movie entitled Trouble With the Curve, where he played an aging baseball scout. During an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival, the Hollywood icon suggested that he eventually will make his return to acting.

Variety attended a master class being put on by the actor-filmmaker at the Cannes Film Festival, where he discussed a variety of topics. The filmmaker stated that he does miss performing "once in a while but not often," while hinting

Newswire: William Shatner will have a Senior Moment in new rom-com

William Shatner is boldly going where only so many actors have gone before: Variety reports the Star Trek stalwart has just boarded an indie rom-com called Senior Moment. In what sounds like an homage to both Top Gun and Space Cowboys, Shatner will play a retired Navy pilot who also happened to test aircraft for Nasa. But retirement can’t clip this maverick’s wings, as he zips around town in a little hot rod (hang on, we’re not at the rom-com part yet.) The film’s being directed by Giorgio Serafini, the helmer of such, um, lighthearted fare as Game Of Death starring Wesley Snipes and the forthcoming The Executioners. We assume there’s a meet-cute nestled somewhere in all that bloody revenge, making Serafini very much the right guy to direct a movie about a twilight-years romance.

Directors' Trademarks: Clint Eastwood

  • Cinelinx
Directors’ trademarks is a series of articles that examines the “signatures” that filmmakers leave behind in their work. This month, we’re examining the trademark style and calling signs of Clint Eastwood as director.

Clint Eastwood became an american film star in the 1960’s thanks to his acting performances in a number of western films. As he began to branch out with new roles in front of the camera, he sought out to have more creative input into the types of film projects that he would be involved in. One way he was able to accomplish this was by creating his own production company which eventually allowed him to work behind the camera as director. His first film as director was 1971’s Play Misty For Me, which was well received by critics and did well at the box office. HIs second film as director was High Plains Drifter (1973), in which he also starred.

Sean McNamara Tapped To Helm Ronald Reagan Biopic

The Hollywood Reporter has caught wind of a new, independent Ronald Reagan biopic picking up steam and today, it’s found its director.

According to the report, it is Soul Surfer and The King’s Daughter helmer Sean McNamara that will take point on the political picture, one that’s set to recount the “40th president’s life as chronicled by a Kgb agent who was assigned to follow him during the early days of the Cold War, when the future president was vehemently anti-Communist while running the Screen Actors Guild.”

Simply titled Reagan, THR notes that Howie Klausner (Space Cowboys) is attached to the pen the script – mining material from Paul Kengor’s pair of biographies – and though there’s no mention of who will step into the Oval Office as Ronald Reagan, we understand that Disney breakout David Henrie (Wizard’s of Waverly Place) is on board to

14 times similar movies went head to head at the box office

Deep Impact Vs Armageddon is not the only time similar movies have landed around the same time...

Usually, a competing project is poison for a studio. Especially in the era now where a blockbuster costs the national budget of a small country to get out into the world, you don't want to be up against a film with similar subject matter.

Yet this keeps happening, time and time again. Even now, there are two live action Jungle Book movies in various stages of production, for example. And let us not forget when K-9 and Turner And Hooch once did battle...

But how have the movie showdowns of old turned out? And are there any instances where everyone's a winner?

Er, not many as it happens...

What's Leaving Netflix in July 2015

Want to revisit "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" before "Terminator: Genisys" opens? Better do it before July 1, when Netflix says "Hasta la vista" to the 1991 sequel.

If you have a hankering to watch "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Moonstruck," "Cast Away," or "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," get on it, because those are also disappearing in July.

And start marathoning these TV classics before they go poof: "Leave it to Beaver," "Dragnet," "Mission: Impossible," "Hawaii Five-o," "Magnum P.I.," "Miami Vice," "Knight Rider," "Melrose Place" and "Wings." Also bid goodbye to the Stephen King miniseries "The Stand" (1994) and "The Langoliers" (1995).

Below is a complete list of the movies that Netflix is pulling from your streaming list. And, just so you're not left empty-handed, here's a list of what's new on Netflix in July 2015. (All titles and dates provided by Netflix and subject to change.)​

Robert Davi to play Leonid Brezhnev in Ronald Reagan biopic

Robert Davi (The Expendables 3) has been cast in the new Ronald Reagan biopic as former Soviet Union leader Leonid Brezhnev, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new film, simply titled Reagan, tells the story of Reagan as a youngster, through his acting years and into his presidency, according to the outlet. Young Disney Channel star David Henrie (Wizards of Waverly Place) is set to feature in the film as Reagan during his teens and 20’s.

Howard Klausner (Space Cowboys) has written the film based on two betselling books by writer Paul Kengor. Brezhnev was in power in the Soviet Union between 1964 and 1982 when he passed away, and exchanged over 30 letters with Reagan in that time.

Disney Star David Henrie Will Be Ronald Reagan In New Biopic

I know that you were waiting with bated breath to find out who would play Ronald Reagan in the upcoming (and cleverly titled) Reagan, so I shall keep you in suspense no longer. Ronald Reagan will be played by…David Henrie!

Who is David Henrie, you ask? I am not really sure, but some of the younger crowd among us might know. Henrie is a Disney star, apparently, renowned for his roles on Wizards of Waverly Place and That’s So Raven. The slightly older members of the TV-going community might know him from How I Met Your Mother, on which he played the role of the son. Now he’s going to take on the part of a young Ronnie Reagan, back when he was a bad actor and stern anti-communist.

Reagan will be told from the perspective of a Kgb agent keeping tabs on our man Ronald in

'American Sniper' Opens with Massive $89.2 Million While 'Blackhat' is an Equally Massive Flop

After a weekend like this I can't help but wonder if Clint Eastwood's American Sniper can follow in the footsteps of his Million Dollar Baby and essentially be the last film released in the year and then take home the Best Picture Oscar. After playing in only four theaters the last three weekends to spectacular results, American Sniper went wide this weekend, playing in 3,555 theaters and made a whopping $89.2 million. This is the largest opening for a January movie ever (more than doubling Ride Along's $41.5 million), not to mention the largest weekend for a movie in January ever, topping previous record holder Avatar with what is now a puny $68.4 million back in 2010. To go along with the records and all that money the film is swimming in, it scored an "A+" CinemaScore to accompany its 73% score at RottenTomatoes. I don't know about you, but this could very quickly
