han solo movie

Director Ron Howard is currently hard at work trying to salvage the Han Solo spin-off on the way from Lucasfilm. The filmmaker stepped up to replace directing duo Phil Lord & Chris Miller after some troubles behind the scenes with producers Kathleen Kennedy and Lawrence Kasdan resulted in them splitting from the project. Even with those troubles, we still know very little about the movie itself, though a few new details have come to light.

Along with news of Michael K. Williams no longer having a role in the Han Solo spin-off, with his character being cut entirely after scheduling conflicts kept him from returning for reshoots, the actor revealed another little tidbit that we hadn’t heard before: the name of Emilia Clarke‘s character in the movie.

Game of Thrones Season 7 Details

We’ve got quite some time until we see the seventh season of Game of Thrones hit HBO. To accommodate the shooting schedule, the debut of the new season won’t arrive in spring like the previous seasons but will instead hit during the summer of 2017. That was also accompanied by confirmation that this season will have less episodes than the previous seasons as the show begins to wind down. In addition, the later premiere means this season of Game of Thrones wont be eligible to win any Emmys like it did not too long ago.

If you’re bummed out from us reminding you of all those facts, we’ll try to life your spirits up with some new Game of Thrones season 7 details, specifically about which characters Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) will finally meet. But beware that these details venture into spoiler territory, so beware from here on out. Read More »

Me Before You Trailer

With Game of Thrones back in full swing, fans are happy to have Emilia Clarke back as their Mother of Dragons. But this summer they’ll see another side of the British actress as she stars in the tearjerking romance Me Before You, based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Jojo Moyes. No, it isn’t a Nicholas Sparks movie, but that doesn’t mean it’s not full of sappy, cheesy romance.

The story follows a caretaker named Louisa Clark (Clarke) tasked with taking on a paralyzed young banker named Will Traynor (Sam Claflin of The Hunger Games franchise), who is having trouble finding joy in life since an accident put him in a wheelchair a couple years ago. But Clarke’s endless charm just might be enough to get him out and about, as evidenced by a new Me Before You trailer that you can see after the jump. Read More »

terminator 6

Here’s how you know the Terminator series is in a rut: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: Salvation, and Terminator Genisys were all announced as the first film in a new trilogy, only for those direct sequels to never materialize. Each of the past three sequels in this once-untouchable series has been an attempt to reboot the whole thing, to build the foundation for the future of the franchise, only for the entire enterprise to end in tears.

Terminator Genisys was critically reviled, shrugged off by audiences, and a box office disappointment, grossing less than $100 million at the domestic box office. And despite a major cliffhanger and the promise of more films to follow, star Emilia Clarke says she will not be back for any future sequels.

Me Before You Trailer

Even though fans are used to seeing Emilia Clarke as the fearless mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones, and Sam Claflin as the trident-wielding Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games franchise, this summer we’ll see them both in a whole new light in the heartbreaking romance Me Before You, based on Jojo Moyes book of the same name.

A new, extended Me Before You trailer has just arrived online, showing off more of the touching love story between a quirky British woman (Clarke) and a paralyzed man (Claflin) for whom she becomes a caregiver. Plus, we finally get a look at Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom from the Harry Potter series) in the movie. Watch the trailer below. Read More »
