It’s been almost two decades since Warren Beatty has directed a film. He last starred in the disastrous Town & Country, but his last directorial effort was 1998’s Bulworth, a hilarious and somewhat overlooked film. The director is famously known for taking his time with each project, but this is his longest hiatus yet. However, we’ll soon see Beatty return to the big screen this November when the actor, director, producer, and writer’s newest picture, now titled Rules Don’t Apply, finally opens in theaters.
Below check out the Rules Don’t Apply first look.

Disney has locked down actor Alden Ehrenreich to be their new Han Solo in the spin-off film that will be directed by The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street filmmakers Phil Lord & Chris Miller. In total, over 2,500 actors auditioned for the role including Miles Teller, Dave Franco, Ansel Elgort, Emory Cohen, Jack Reynor, and Taron Egerton. But Ehrenreich came out on top. While his work as an actor speaks for itself, Ehrenreich had someone in his corner who vouched for him, and it just so happens to be iconic filmmaker Steven Spielberg.

May the 4th has come and gone, but Phil Lord and Chris Miller have a belated Star Wars Day gift for us. The directors have just cast Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars spinoff, due out in 2018. The 26-year-old Ehrenreich broke out in a big way this year with a standout turn in Hail, Caesar!, directed by the Coen brothers. Read More »

UPDATED: Deadline is reporting Hail, Caesar! standout Alden Ehrenreich has emerged as the frontrunner for the Han Solo movie. Our original story from March 15, 2016 follows.
As the 2018 release date for Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s Han Solo spinoff inches ever closer, the list of potential leads has been getting smaller and smaller. The directors and studio Disney reportedly looked at thousands of young actors for the role, and as of earlier this year had started to narrow down the possibilities. Now they’re in the home stretch, as a final shortlist has emerged. Among those still in the running are Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction), Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), and Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!). Read More »

With Hail, Caesar!, Joel and Ethan Coen have crafted a movie that’s amusing but baffling, challenging but easygoing, and frivolous but about everything. It’s a film that wears its frustration on its sleeve like a badge of honor, inviting you to engage with it even as it tries to hard to keep you at a distance. It’s funny and sad, silly and serious. In other words, it’s a Coen brothers movie. We’re all probably going to like it a lot more in five years if we’re unsure about it now.
Now that Hail, Caesar! has been out for an entire weekend and you’ve had a chance to see it (because you definitely went out and saw the new Coen brothers film on its opening weekend, right?), let’s take this opportunity to explore how this Hollywood farce fits into the larger Coen canon. Like all of their films, this film reflects their larger worldview and shares ideas with some of their best work. Hail, Caesar!, halfway between Barton Fink and A Serious Man, a cousin of Inside Llewyn Davis and Miller’s Crossing, feels like it fills a specific gap in their overall filmography.
Naturally, spoilers lurk ahead.

If you’re a Coen Brothers fan, then you’re probably already excited about the directing and writing duo’s new film coming next month, the comedy Hail, Caesar! starring a cavalcade of great talent. We’ve already seen one trailer showing off the quirky story that takes place in the Golden Age of Hollywood, and now a new trailer shows us even more. But rather than taking the traditional trailer route, they basically use an entire, hilarious scene to sell the movie with a brief montage at the end. And it’s just as fantastic as you’d hope.

With news surfacing that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller will be at the helm of a new Star Wars Anthology film focusing on a young Han Solo, everyone is wondering just who will play the charismatic smuggler.
Harrison Ford made the role iconic in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he’ll be reprising the role in The Force Awakens. But Ford can’t play a young version of the character without extensive visual effects, so some younger actor is going to have to get in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. The question is who can pull it off?
We’ve rounded up some possibilities, some likely, some not, and some more preferable than others. Check out our list of 20 Actors Who Should Play Han Solo after the jump! Read More »

To coincide with its long-awaited Sundance debut, Chan-wook Park‘s Stoker has just unveiled a new international trailer. The first English-language outing from the Oldboy auteur stars Mia Wasikowska as India, a teenage girl mourning the death of her father (Dermot Mulroney). The unexpected arrival of her mysterious Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode) further complicates matters, especially as he seems to have taken an unhealthy interest in both India and her chilly mother Evelyn (Nicole Kidman). Watch the new video after the jump.

Is Beautiful Creatures the next Twilight? The film is a YA tale of a battle between good and evil supernatural forces, focused around the adolescence of a young witch, Lena (Alice Englert), whose powers will be claimed either for the light or dark when she hits her 16th birthday.
The film adapts Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl‘s novel of the same name (the first of a multi-book arc, naturally) and if this new footage is anything to go by the movie definitely has a chance at, um, eclipsing Twilight. Not in the supernatural teen romance category, but for pure “WTF?” factor. A new international trailer runs down a good bit of the story, and also makes the film look like a campy, kooky mess. Some of the “southern” accents here are just marvelous, and for a movie about witches there’s a hell of a lot of vamping going on. I don’t care why Emmy Rossum is screaming towards the end of the trailer; I just want to loop that moment. Read More »
