Harrison Ford is Han Solo, as much as any real person can embody any fictional character, and it’s tough to imagine anyone else stepping into the role after nearly 40 years. But with a “young Han Solo” spinoff in the works from Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the time has come for us to meet and hopefully fall for a different stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder.
The filmmakers have taken their time, reportedly looking at thousands of young actors for the part, and now they’ve finally started to narrow down their choices. Among those on the shortlist are Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, and Logan Lerman. Hit the jump for more on the Han Solo shortlist. Read More »

With The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 hitting theaters this weekend, it’s a good time for studios to get their forthcoming movies in front of plenty of audiences, in the form of new trailers. So it should come as no surprise that Lionsgate’s sister company Summit Entertainment has a Now You See Me 2 trailer debuting this week, and they’ve got an ace in their pocket to make the magician heist sequel more appealing to the young adult audience: Harry Potter.

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 »
There are all-ages and adults-only versions of the new Unfinished Business Super Bowl spot, which shows off the comedy from Ken Scott, starring Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson, and Dave Franco as a trio of unlikely colleagues who head to Europe in order to make a big business deal. Unfortunately, they run across a few of Vaughn’s old colleagues, played by Sienna Miller, James Marsden, and Nick Frost, who are trying to make the same deal. There’s a lot of drinking and shenanigans as everyone embarrasses themselves en route to success and/or failure. And this time it’s all cut to The Lonely Island’s track ‘Like a Boss.’ Read More »

Now You See Me turned out to be a sleeper hit in the summer of 2013, so the Four Horsemen have reunited for Now You See Me 2. Well, three of the Four Horsemen are, anyway. Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, and Woody Harrelson are all back for the sequel, while Lizzy Caplan has replaced Isla Fisher as the female lead.
Also not returning? Eisenberg’s unruly mop from the first film. In the first cast photo from Now You See Me 2, his hair is closely cropped — presumably because he’s just come off of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hit the jump for your Now You See Me 2 first look, also featuring Mark Ruffalo, Daniel Radcliffe, and Michael Caine.

In Unfinished Business, formerly called Business Trip, Vince Vaughn is a guy who starts his own small upstart company after being forced out of a big outfit, only to find himself competing directly against his former colleagues for a big contract. All he’s got on his side is an aging associate (Tom Wilkinson), a too-green newbie (Dave Franco) and a willingness to do anything to win the contract. Ken Scott (Starbuck) directs, and Sienna Miller, James Marsden, and Nick Frost also show up. Now you can see a red-band Unfinished Business trailer — one which certainly doesn’t skimp on vulgarity — and a work-safe green band version, too. Read More »
