As it turns out, asking Ewan McGregor about reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in a Star Wars spinoff is basically like a publicity version of Bloody Mary — say it enough times and it’ll appear. Despite the actor’s numerous expressions of interest in revisiting one of the only good things to come of the Star Wars prequels (aside from Watto, of course), the decision ultimately rests with Lucasfilm. And it looks like Lucasfilm is most definitely down.
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.
The latest trailer for mother! is arguably more effective than the first — hard to imagine after that initial and completely bonkers sneak peek, I know. But this one uses sound and dialogue to unnerving effect, and although doing more telling than showing seems counterintuitive, it’s a concept that works brilliantly in the second trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s new film, and his first since 2014’s Noah.
Brie Larson’s first big solo outing in the MCU is undergoing a little shake-up behind the scenes. Marvel has reportedly hired a new screenwriter for Captain Marvel, the ’90s-set superhero film that will introduce audiences to the eponymous hero. And they could do a lot worse than a scribe whose credits include upcoming projects like the Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander, as well as the all-female DC villains team-up Gotham City Sirens.
Like you, we’re pretty anxious to see our favorites from The Force Awakens back on the big screen this December, but we’re just as excited about all the new faces coming to a galaxy far, far away. That includes Star Wars newcomers like Laura Dern (praise hands emoji), Kelly Marie Tran and, perhaps most intriguingly, Benicio Del Toro — whose role in The Last Jedi has mostly been mysterious until now.
On the heels of last week’s Aladdin update comes another exciting bit of casting news for another big Disney remake. This time it’s Jon Favreau’s take on The Lion King, which has enlisted Alfre Woodard as the voice of Sarabi — head lioness, partner to Mufasa, and mother of Simba in the upcoming live-action (ish) version of the studio’s beloved animated classic.
We may never know exactly how much of the Han Solo movie has changed since Ron Howard took over for Phil Lord and Chris Miller, but at least one difference is immediately clear: Howard is definitely more fond than his predecessors of sharing updates and photos from the set of the untitled Star Wars spinoff on social media — including today’s offering, which gives us a sneak peek at what appears to be a new droid.
And in other Spider-Man news…It looks like Sony and Marvel are just as pleased as the rest of us with Spider-Man: Homecoming. Following the box office success of the web-crawler’s latest reboot, the studios are reportedly sticking with director Jon Watts for the untitled sequel, slated to hit theaters in 2019. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait that long to see Tom Holland’s charming high school superhero back on the big screen, as the actor is set to reprise the spectacular role in Avengers: Infinity War.
Walton Goggins has officially joined the MCU. What a time to be alive. The character actor and star of Vice Principals, The Hateful Eight and the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot has signed on for Ant-Man and the Wasp, the upcoming sequel featuring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly as the eponymous superheroes. Goggins is the third recent addition to the cast, joining fellow newcomers Randall Park (Fresh Off the Boat) and Hannah John-Kamen (Black Mirror) for Ant-Man’s next big (semi) solo adventure.
We are living in the peak era of Twin Peaks. In addition to David Lynch’s riveting television revival (which will inevitably become the best series of 2017, don’t @ me), the iconic filmmaker’s cult classic prequel film is coming to The Criterion Collection this October. Also joining the prestigious collection: Kristen Stewart’s spooky text messages, a murderous mermaid musical from Poland, Stanley Kubrick, and more.
Disney has several live-action remakes in development, but two titles in particular have attracted a little extra attention: Aladdin and Mulan. Although pop culture is becoming increasingly socially conscious, Hollywood’s unfortunate history of whitewashing has left many (rightfully) concerned over the casting for both of these films, especially since the studio behind them doesn’t exactly have the best track record with diversity. And while Disney has made it clear that they’re committed to casting actors of relevant ethnicity in Aladdin and Mulan, a new report reveals that the studio is struggling to do so for at least one of those projects.
Another Friday, another late-breaking piece of casting news from the wonderful world of Disney — more specifically, the MCU. Following last month’s addition of Black Mirror star Hannah John-Kamen, Ant-Man and the Wasp is adding another great name to its roster: Fresh Off the Boat star and regular Veep guest Randall Park is the latest actor to join Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly in Marvel’s super-sequel.
