Solo: A Star Wars Story First Look

We’ve heard plenty about next year’s new Star Wars spin-off focusing on Han Solo. After a troubled production saw directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller let go from the project, only to be replaced by director Ron Howard, the film wrapped back in October and was finally given the official title of Solo: A Star Wars Story. But when will we get our first official look at the movie? It might be today.

Thanks to a new piece of promotional material from the Hawkins Theater chain, it appears that we have been given the first image of Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo in the spin-off that dives into the smuggler’s origin story. Check out the Solo: A Star Wars Story first look below. Read More »

Han Solo Movie First Look

Now, our first look at the Hail, Caesar! star as the galaxy’s most famous (young) smuggler has arrived via paparazzi shots, and that’s certainly not the way anyone wanted this to go down.

Han Solo Spin-Off Cast - Ian Kenny

Last week brought the tiniest of updates regarding the Star Wars spin-off film that will focus on Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo. Not only did we learn the name of the character that Woody Harrelson will be playing (which didn’t really tell us anything), but Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed some vague details about what we’ll see unfold in the movie. But today, the Han Solo spin-off also gained a new cast member.

Ian Kenny is probably best known for playing the bully in last year’s musical gem Sing Street, but pretty soon he’ll be even better known by millions around the world having just been made part of the Han Solo spin-off cast. Read More »

Alden Ehrenreich in The Yellow Birds review

The Yellow Birds is guaranteed to attract a certain amount of attention simply because it’s Alden Ehrenreich‘s last major role before Han Solo, and Star Wars fans will be gratified to see that Lucasfilm’s faith in him is not misplaced. He puts in an unforgettable lead performance as Bartle, a young soldier who’s deployed to war and comes back a haunted man, for reasons he’s unwilling or unable to articulate.

But The Yellow Birds is far more than an acting showcase for Ehrenreich’s talents, and would deserve to be seen no matter what big franchises its stars were doing next. It’s a war drama that’s far less interested in the heroism of battle than its cost, as told through the story of a single soldier and those in his immediate orbit.  Read More »

Alden Ehrenreich Talks Han Solo Pressure

Star Wars fans are some of the most rabid in pop culture. The most hardcore of them know each and every detail of a lightsaber, they can name dozens of planets in the galaxy, they know the names of the most obscure characters with the smallest amount of screentime, and they’re also the most critical of every single decision made as a movie crawls through development.

For an actor like Alden Ehrenreich, that’s an especially daunting environment when you’ve been cast as fan favorite character Han Solo in his own A Star Wars Story installment coming in 2018. But thanks to co-director Phil Lord, one particular scene in the sports drama Hoosiers helped him calm down about the long road he has ahead of him as the galaxy’s best known smuggler.
