New Han Solo Set Photo Teases Empire’s Involvement in ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff

Ron Howard’s at it again! (…which is just a delightful phrase because, like, what havoc could Ron Howard possibly wreak on this earth?) The director has shared another intriguing photo from the set of the still-untitled Han Solo spinoff, this time teasing a very familiar piece of headgear. Don’t worry — it’s not Darth Vader, but it does belong to someone who probably knows him from work.

‘IT’ Trailer: And You Thought Clowns Were Scary Before

You know what they say: Everything is better with friends. That includes fighting an evil demonic clown who lives in town sewer system and has an affinity for Victorian era garb. Wardrobe preference notwithstanding, Pennywise is still pretty darn terrifying, especially if you’re already scared of clowns — in which case, you might want to avoid the new trailer for IT.

Ben Affleck Shoots Down Rumors of DCEU Exit: ‘Batman Is the Coolest F—ing Part in Any Universe’

Just one day before he was scheduled to appear at Comic-Con, a new report revealed that Ben Affleck’s days as Batman are seemingly numbered, with sources close to the situation suggesting that this fall’s Justice League may very well be the actor’s final appearance in the DCEU. But during today’s Warner Bros. panel in Hall H, Affleck swiftly shot down rumors of his departure, imminent or otherwise, as he reassured the crowd that he’s still very committed to playing the Caped Crusader.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese Reportedly Reuniting for True-Crime Thriller

Back in 2015 (so very long ago, I know), it was reported that Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio were developing a new film about notorious 19th century serial killer H.H. Holmes based on the Erik Larson book Devil in the White City. Although we’ve heard little about that project in the time since, it appears that Scorsese and his muse are plotting to reunite for another true-crime thriller, this one set in the 1920s and based on a book by Lost City of Z author David Grann.

Quentin Tarantino Eyeing Margot Robbie for Sharon Tate Role in Manson Family Film

Just last night we learned that Quentin Tarantino’s next film is a “unique take on the Manson Family murders” — news that sent the internet running through the entire reactionary cycle at an unprecedented speed. Little is known about the project and what Tarantino’s “unique take” on the gruesome true-crime story might be, which only fueled speculation about the film (and inspired plenty of premature judgment calls). A new report offers a few more details about the untitled Manson Family project, most notably that Tarantino has met with Margot Robbie for the role of the late Sharon Tate.

Tom Cruise Reveals the ‘Top Gun’ Sequel’s Official Title

After years of taunting us with the possibility of a (super) late-coming sequel to Top Gun, it’s actually happening. Tom Cruise is back, which guarantees our butts will be in those seats on opening day, no matter what. If you thought they were going to go with a basic title like Top Gun 2 for this major movie event, you were sadly mistaken.

An Enchanted CG Toilet Terrorizes Josh Gad in This Great ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Deleted Scene

There’s no easy way to say this, but if you saw Beauty and the Beast in theaters, you were ROBBED. All week long Disney has been dropping additional content from the hit live-action remake online to promote the upcoming Blu-ray release, including some pretty darn cute behind-the-scenes footage. But there is nothing cute about the latest clip, in which director Bill Condon reveals a scene that was unjustly deleted from the film. That sneaky dude has been holding out on us.

David Ayer Might Direct That New ‘Scarface’ Movie

A new Scarface remake doesn’t sound all that exciting, but a new Scarface remake directed by Antoine Fuqua — now that had some potential, especially with Diego Luna in the title role. You could easily envision Fuqua’s take on the iconic gangster story (which famously served as the basis for two classic films), and at the very least, it would be a good-looking, fairly entertaining film. Unfortunately, Fuqua dropped out of the project a while back, and we’re a little skeptical about his potential replacement.

What Is Up With Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo Hair in This ‘Star Wars’ Set Photo?

Are you seated, Star Wars fam? You need to be seated for what you’re about to see because — and there is no easy way to break this to you — something is up with Alden Ehrenreich’s ’70s-style hair in this new photo from the set of the young Han Solo movie. And that something is not necessarily a good something. In fact, he looks less like he’s playing the junior version of Harrison Ford’s iconic hero in Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s untitled Star Wars spinoff, and more like he’s playing…you know what? I’m going to give you a chance to back away now before I say something that royally screws up your Friday vibes.
