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 »

One of the questions surrounding Warner Bros.’ upcoming Green Lantern movie is which Green Lantern it’ll center on. There have been several of them in the comics, since they’re all part of a single intergalactic police force called the Green Lantern Corps. Would Warner Bros. attempt a do-over with Hal Jordan? Or might they move on to other popular Green Lanterns like John Stewart?
Well, now the rumor is that the Green Lantern movie won’t focus on any one of those — because it’ll follow multiple Green Lanterns. And that Chris Pine, who was recently reported as being in talks for Wonder Woman, could play one of them. More on the Green Lantern rumors after the jump. Read More »

When you think post-apocalyptic movies, you probably think about action. You think zombies, or destruction. You probably don’t conjure up water wheels, a turkey dinner, and romance. But that’s what you get with Z for Zachariah. Directed by Craig Zobel (Compliance), the film is almost an anti-post-apocalyptic movie as it’s much more concerned with human relationships than anything else going out around them. With a cast including Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie and Chris Pine, that’s both a blessing and a curse. Read more of our Z for Zachariah review below. Read More »
