rules don't apply trailer

It’s been 15 years since Warren Beatty has acted in a movie and 18 years since he stepped behind the camera, so the return of the Hollywood legend as both actor and director in Rules Don’t Apply should be enough to pique the curiosity of anyone with a sense of film history. But if a 79-year-old living legend isn’t enough, this film also features delightful young actors like Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins, a supporting cast stacked with some of your favorite actors, and a new trailer that makes Beatty’s return to the silver screen look like a charming, frothy, and likable time at the movies.

Han Solo spin-off story

Just before the weekend, Disney dropped some big news by confirming that Community and Atlanta star Donald Glover had landed the role of a young Lando Calrissian in the forthcoming Star Wars Story that will focus on the earlier career of the famous smuggler Han Solo, played by Alden Ehrenreich. Now one more detail has surfaced regarding the events we’ll see unfold.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s Han Solo spinoff found its leading man in May, and finally made the official announcement in July. But Alden Ehrenreich isn’t going to star all by himself, so as the 2017 start date approaches, the race is on to fill up some of the other roles in the movie.

rules don't apply trailer

Rules Don’t Apply brings Warren Beatty back to us. Beatty, who hasn’t directed since 1998’s hilarious Bulworth, has returned with a movie that defines “longtime passion project.” Ever since seeing Howard Hughes in-person in 1973, Beatty has wanted to make a film about the man. He finally did it with Rules Don’t Apply, although it’s less a biopic, more of a romance between Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich‘s characters.

Below, watch the new Rules Don’t Apply trailer.

new han solo actor

When Lucasfilm announced earlier this month that Alden Ehrenreich would lead the Han Solo anthology film, they were just confirming what fans already knew — the trades had revealed the casting months ago. But not every report and rumor pans out so nicely. For example, there’s been a lot of speculation that Ehrenreich’s Han Solo could cameo in this winter’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, director Gareth Edwards has gone on the record to shut down the rumors.

Meanwhile, over at Warner Bros., Suicide Squad director David Ayer is battling a pesky and persistent fan theory of his own. Many have wondered if Jared Leto‘s Joker could be Jason Todd, whose defaced costume was seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Ayer insists that’s not the case.  Read More »

Han Solo

At Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016, Disney finally confirmed what everyone in the galaxy already knew: Alden Ehrenreich would be playing a young Han Solo in the yet-to-be-titled A Star Wars Story standalone film from Lego Movie geniuses Phil Lord and Chris Miller. But what we didn’t know at the time is just how many films Alden Ehrenreich is signed on for. A new report claims that the Hail, Caesar! star is signed to a three-picture deal, which would bring a Han Solo movie trilogy to life. While I believe he is signed on for three films, I don’t think we’ll be getting a Han Solo trilogy. Let me explain why.

Two months ago, Alden Ehrenreich was cast as the young Han Solo. The actor will star in Phil Lord Chris Miller‘s Star Wars spinoff, which Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan co-wrote. Little is known about the story, and unfortunately, no new major details were shared during the Future Filmmaker panel at Star Wars Celebration (which Peter has been covering in London).

Lord and Miller did, however, discuss the process of finding the right actor to play Han Solo, what appeals to them about the character, their canceled cameos in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and more. Below, learn a few Han Solo spinoff facts.

Rules Don't Apply Trailer

It’s been 18 years since Warren Beatty was behind the camera with the political comedy Bulworth. Now he’s finally back in the director’s chair with a project that has been kicking around for a long time. Though the project has always been said to focus on Howard Hughes, the first trailer for the film shows that this is more of an ensemble romantic comedy.

Rules Don’t Apply follows the budding romance between a young aspiring actress (Lily Collins) and her married driver (Alden Ehrenreich) as they both have to deal with the eccentricities of the famous billionaire Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty), who employs them both.

Rey in the force awakens ending

I’m headed to London for Star Wars Celebration 2016, which runs from July 15th to July 17th 2016 at the ExCeL London Exhibition Centre. Some big Star Wars announcements and reveals are expected to come out of the weekend, and we’ll be covering it live from the U.K. So stay tuned for our coverage beginning Friday and going throughout the weekend.

When Disney Animation Studios announced they were making a big announcement a couple weeks back, I listed a few possible predictions and was able to nail it exactly: Wreck-It Ralph 2 was announced, pushing back Gigantic which still needs some work. And this weekend Finding Dory overtook Captain America: Civil War to become the highest grossing film of the summer so far, nailing my #1 spot prediction for this year’s Summer Movie Wager. So while I’m on a roll, I thought I’d try to guess what we might discover from Star Wars Celebration 2016.

Warren Beatty pic

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.
