Geroge Lucas Solo Set Visit - Willow

Ron Howard has grown up in show business. He began his acting career at a young age as one of the main characters on The Andy Griffith Show and countless appearances on plenty of other classic TV shows. He was able to ride that wave through his teens, 20s and 30s before beginning a career behind the camera as a feature filmmaker. Now, he finds himself trying to save a major blockbuster in one of the biggest franchises in the world, and it just so happens to be based on characters created by the filmmaker who gave him one of his most well-known roles as a big screen actor.

Back in 1972, Ron Howard starred in American Graffiti for director George Lucas, a promising young filmmaker who had just come off his acclaimed sci-fi project THX-1138. He went by Ronny Howard in those days, and he first heard about Star Wars on the set of American Graffiti when it still just an idea popping around George Lucas’ head. Who would have ever thought that 43 years later the two would find themselves on the set of Solo: A Star Wars Story, working together to bring the origin story of one of George Lucas’ most iconic characters to life?

He’s somehow kept on trucking. And now, the little guy’s killing spree will continue on the small screen in a new Child’s Play TV series.

Thor Ragnarok deleted scene

After the bland Thor: The Dark World, Taika Waititi completely turned the Thor franchise around with last year’s Thor: Ragnarok by making one of the funniest films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s also one of the strangest, and as a newly-released Thor Ragnarok deleted scene reveals, it was almost even stranger.

Take a look at the new scene below, which features a bizarre hologram of Jeff Goldblum‘s Grandmaster, and some nice banter between Thor and Bruce Banner. Read More »

A pitch for a War Machine solo movie starring Don Cheadle was nearly greenlit by Marvel.
