Although pre-production on Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s young Han Solo spinoff has been underway for some time now (operating under the clever codename “Red Cup”), today marks the full, official start of production. To celebrate, Lucasfilm has debuted the first photo of the cast and their directors, crammed together inside the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon as if posing for a very cheerful (if a bit tardy) holiday greeting card.
Somewhere, a Tumblr user’s brain is melting because their mash-up art just came to life and now they’re wondering what to do next with such great artistic responsibility (hint: look toward the White House). Two beloved pop culture entities have converged, and yet neither the internet nor the time-space continuum has imploded; instead, we are treated with a rather charming photo.
The first trailer for The House is about what you’d expect based on the plot description: Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell need to raise money to send their kid to college, so they start an illegal casino / underground fight club in their basement, various hijinks ensue, etc. It looks pleasant enough, and the combo of Poehler and Ferrell (with a handful of other funny people) should make for a solid comedy — though this one looks a bit safe, which is surprising considering that The House comes from the minds behind Neighbors.
There are different lines of thinking when it comes to putting up your Christmas tree — some families wait until the day after Thanksgiving, some until the first day of December. In recent years, I’ve taken to waiting until the first Love Actually hot take inevitably hits the internet. 14 years later, the critical debate over Richard Curtis’ festive rom-com has become a holiday tradition in its own right, and now we’re getting even more Love Actually to love…or hate.
Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for ever since Disney announced this live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast: The Gaston song. Listen, this “tale as old as time” is sweet and magical and all that other wonderful stuff, but it’s okay to admit that you’re 100 percent here for Luke Evans as the nefarious, narcissistic master of swagger, performing what is, with apologies to Angela Lansbury, the actual greatest song from Beauty and the Beast (don’t @ me).
If you’ve read Stephen King’s It, then the idea of a film adaptation that isn’t rated R sounds preposterous — and yet, it happened before with the 1990 television miniseries (which does not hold up, by the way). For those concerned that the new adaptation from director Andres Muschietti might forgo the R rating in favor of courting a wider audience, the producer of the upcoming film has laid those worries to rest while also confirming that Warner Bros. has every intention of making a sequel.
In 2014, a pair of veteran stunt coordinators introduced the world to John Wick, a former assassin who rages out of retirement to seek revenge on the man who killed his puppy and stole his car. With action as sharp and seemingly seamless as the impeccable suits worn by its eponymous protagonist, John Wick reinvigorated a genre bloated with CGI and dominated by implausibly acrobatic vehicles. In 2017, Keanu Reeves is back with John Wick: Chapter 2, a righteous follow-up that’s bigger and maybe not better, but just as good as its predecessor.
A movie reboot of Tomb Raider initially sounded like a fairly lame idea, but it’s become increasingly intriguing (and somewhat promising) in recent months — in addition to casting Alicia Vikander in the lead role, the new Tomb Raider film has some good things going for it, including a solid director (the guy behind The Wave), Walton Goggins as the villain and Dominic West as Lara Croft’s dad. Today adds an extra dose of optimism with a series of photos from the set, which offer our first look at Vikander in costume as the iconic video game hero.
FINALLY — no, really, for months we’ve been wondering when Warner Bros. might release a full cast list for The LEGO Batman Movie. Although several voice actors had already been announced, like Jenny Slate as Harley Quinn and Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face, there were plenty more that remained a mystery; like, who’s voicing Bane and Scarecrow and Riddler and all those other delightful Bat-villains? And now we finally know.
A handful of Super Bowl ads have already landed online ahead of this Sunday’s big game — it’s the usual mix of TV spots for upcoming movies like Ghost in the Shell and Transformers: The Last Knight, along with a few ads featuring familiar faces like Gal Gadot and John Malkovich promoting businesses and collecting paychecks. And then there’s Honda. Like others, their ad for this year’s Super Bowl also features several beloved celebs, but there’s something kind of unnerving about the execution.
With Ben Affleck no longer directing the solo Batman movie (guess he finally watched Live by Night, huh?), the search is on for a new director to take his place. Amid various reports regarding Affleck’s exit from the director’s chair was an interesting tidbit of news you might have missed: The screenplay for The Batman, penned by Affleck with DC’s own Geoff Johns, received a rewrite from Chris Terrio.
Depending on your point of view, today’s good news / bad news situation might be a good news / good news type of thing — Antoine Fuqua has dropped out of the long-developing Scarface remake, and though the director’s chair is now vacant, the project does have a very talented actor to lead it: Diego Luna, who most recently co-starred in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
